This variety pack of Pop tarts will move you - either physically or emotionally with five styles popular for Advertising and Source music. The lyrical themes cover a lot of ground and with lines like "You want to get me down, you better get in line" and "L-O-V-E Me," plus a mix of Spanish and English, your bases are covered with these hits. 

Listen to the whole playlist. 


Mark Gracious, Music Director 

As a young musician originally hailing from Chicago, Mark's zeal for music has taken him from the Windy City to Athens, GA; Los Angeles to Wilmington, NC; and back again to L.A., as pursuits in both the creative and industry sides of music dictated his future. Just as comfortable marketing frontline artists at both indie and major labels as he is in the lo-fi home recording environment, he has a bonafide “jack-of-all trades” background.  

With musical inspiration provided by Devo, Rush, The Ventures, Pavement and James Brown, he brings the ability to tame unruly minutia, morphing it into meaningful and life-changing detail. When not supporting workflow and analytics for the APM Music Department and providing APM clients with high-priority music assets, you can find him scarfing burritos and keeping the streets of L.A. safe while rolling with the Chromies of the 4130 Subway Series, The world’s largest monthly group BMX ride.
