The Big Sell EP is music written to accompany imaginary television commercials. The lyrical themes are derived from the three song topics supposedly most requested by advertisers looking for songs to place in commercials: "Thinking Ahead," "Brand New Day," and "Things Are Getting Better." These are happy songs, optimisticly celebrating the great corporate takeover of American hearts and minds. Like the mythical corporations they accompany, these pieces avoid risky innovation, rather glorifying popularly (a.k.a. commercially) successful ideas of the past.
