The Apples in stereoâ€™s â€œEnergyâ€ Featured on American Idol
On Wednesday nightâ€™s American IdolÂ the long-running weekly Ford commercial featuring AI contestants singing pop classics added another musical gem to its repertoire. The Applesâ€™ song â€œEnergyâ€ from their 2007 album New Magnetic WonderÂ was featured in the prominent in-show Ford spot by way of an enthusiastic re-recorded version featuring the remaining contestants. Recently the Ford-sponsored segment has included artists such as Britney Spears, Queen, Lykke Li and the J. Geils Band.
â€œEnergyâ€ will be included in the upcoming Apples best of collection “#1 Hits Explosion” due out later this year on Simian/Yep Roc/Elephant 6.
