The Scotch Snap: Corporate theme songs and patriotic anthems

What happens when you cross Bon Jovi, hair metal and the wishes of a multi-national corporation? You get an unintentionally hilarious corporate anthem, that's what.

We also discover Britain's most patriotic song, and it's not exactly what you'd expect. Still, we've got a sense of humour.

We contact the ethers to look at new releases. Spooky.

Releases shown: The Enemy - Like a Dancer; Karmin - Broken Hearted; Red Hot Chili Peppers - Brendan's Death Song; Passion Pit - I'll Be Alright; The Pictish Trail - Michael Rocket.

*Musical note: the Scotch Snap technically consists of a stressed (ie on the beat) sixteenth note, or semiquaver, followed by a dotted eighth note or quaver. Usually dotted rythms have the longer note first; it is that reversal of expectation that makes the snap so distinctive. It is a key rhythmic signature of Scottish traditional music.
