Paula Flynn’s cover version of “Lets Dance”, currently featuring on TV ads for a certain brand of bottled water, kick-started an interesting debate over at the On the Record blog about the ins and outs of musicians singing for their supper on advertisements.

To quote reader Kim Fowley, “if Flynn wants to work for them, why doesn’t she just get herself a suit and an office in their headquarters and be done with it?”

Still, it hasn’t done Flynn any harm yet. Her version of “Lets Dance” is released by EMI Ireland on May 18.
