Have you heard it? Love it or hate it, Train’s song “Cadillac, Cadillac” is bringing some focus back to the automaker. According to headlineplanet.com, the song has quickly moved to the top of the adult contemporary board, claiming the number one spot last week. That means the tune is catching on, and having an adorable baby in the music video doesn’t hurt, either.
While Train fans may be surprised to hear the very ‘pop’ sound the new song has (it seems the days of rock may be a thing of the past for the group), there’s no doubt that Cadillac will take what it can get from the free publicity. All of a sudden, Cadillac cars are getting a second look by younger shoppers, and for good reason.
As The News Wheel points out, this isn’t the first time that Cadillac has made its way in to pop culture via music. “Macklemore praised the feeling of riding in his own Caddy in “White Walls;” Lorde invoked the brand in her hit song, “Royals;” and even Carrie Underwood jumped on the Cadillac bandwagon with “Two Black Cadillacs,” which will be made into a TV “event series.” Don’t forget Springsteen’s “Pink Cadillac,” either!
Luckily for the automaker, the song really does speak to the value of a Cadillac. When the guy can’t get the girl, he says, “Call yourself a cab; watch my Cadillac disappear.” Sorry girl, it looks like you missed out.
