I currently like the Maltesers advert which uses 'Double Dutch' by that svengali Malcolm McLaren.

And the Trailer Trash Tracys 'You wish you were red' for Renault 4 a while ago.

No, it was played regularly a couple of years ago (not sure if that is how you spell seksy as in watches). The advert showed the watch face and played Leona.

In the US Volkswagen is memorable for having great music that works perfectly.

Here's a handful of good examples from the past

Aha - Take On Me (they even copy the iconic music video).
Nick Drake - Pink Moon.
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Black Betty
J Ralph - One Million Miles Away
Trololo
Styx - Mr Roboto

Phantom Of The Opera by Iron Maiden was my favourite ad song (Lucozade), followed next by She Sells Sanctuary by The Cult (could've been another of those sports drinks).
