What’s the last album you bought?

Bomba Estereo, a Colombian group. I bought it at their show at the Stern Grove Festival, and found out later they had a song in a Levi’s commercial.

Do you Twitter? If so, how often? What’s your Twitter name? And if not, why not?

Yes, 1-2 times a day. I’m @brookeslist.

What’s the best use of music in advertising that you_ve recently seen?

The Kindle ads. I love the super creative graphics and the songs are super sweet. They mix well together.

At this moment in time, what most worries and encourages you about the music business?

My worries are that the labels are losing footing and artists have to do more themselves and have little direction. Also, the technology about purchasing music drives me nuts. I buy something on one gadget and I can’t hear it on another. Get rid of DMA! What encourages me are the artists themselves. They are fun, moody, and creative. I love ‘em.

What is the most significant moment in the history of music and advertising?

The NBC peacock - three memorable notes in time.

Beatles or Stones?

Flat out - Beatles.
