I remember a long time ago hearing part of a Mike Oldfield song in a beer commercial. This was around 1990/91(no it wasn't something from Tubular Bells). It was part of the opening track on his Islands album(instrumental). No I don't remember which beer commercial.

On the BBC website this morning, I came across the “Ultimate Harry Potter Quiz”.

Question 7:

Which of these books appears on the reading list for students at Hogwarts?

1. “Perpetual Change” by Moby Grape

2. “Intermediate Transfiguration” by Emeric Switch

3. “The Return of the Giant Hogwart” by Hermiston Bruce

4. “Larks’ Tongues in Aspic – A Cookery Primer” by Emerlist Davjack

Do you think the author is a prog fan, by any chance?

I heard "Yoo doo right" by Can on an independent college station the other night while driving my car. I'm not sure if they played the whole thing or not since I left my car to do a little bit of shopping. I think I heard it before on that station and they didn't play the whole thing then and this time when I got back into my car several minutes later something else was on. Still, it was cool to hear it while I was driving.

Have heard different renditions of Heroes on two commercials during the World Series, but that song's really not prog so why mention it?

Fripp's guitar work is sublime!  When I saw King Crimson in concert, they did "Heroes" as an encore.  Very nice!  
(I would have preferred "Fracture" but oh well, I take what Fripp offers!)

^Damn my ears for forgetting about Fripp's involvement.

There's one I forgot about but it might be stretching the definition of prog just slightly(although still an artist on this site). Sometime over the summer I was in a book store(in the US) and I saw a guy wearing a Jean Michel Jarre shirt. I talked to the guy for about half an hour and it turns out he's maybe a moderate prog fan(moderate because he didn't seem to know much about the current scene). We talked about how JMJ holds records for largest concert attendances worldwide while still being relatively unknown in the US. Anyway, it's not every day you see a guy wearing a shirt like that. I might not mention it if it was a Pink Floyd  shirt or Rush shirt(maybe a Yes shirt since you don't see many of those these days) but this goes beyond that.

I also forgot to mention that I once heard a snippet(maybe ten seconds of it(one of the SH guitar parts) of "dancing with the moonlit knight" on NPR in between segments earlier in the year.

I also heard one with "peaches en regalia."

This video portrays an old Tirol ritual involving beings that drive away the ghosts of winter....does anyone else hear "Lark's Tongues In Aspic - Part 2"??

They remind me of some Warhammer armies or cheap Doctor Who aliens. The Tirollans, allies of Sontarans!

I think a prog fan hijacked the classic rock satellite radio last week. ('Stingray Music' which seems to be the new big thing in Canada. You get it through satellite TV and there's different channels with different playlists).
It started out with Jethro Tull's Hunting Girl then possibly Van Der Graaf Generator (only evidence I remember being a ~2 minute sax solo), some kinda psychedellic blues thing then Pink Floyd's Welcome to The Machine.

Last weekend, during the day when the tourists were all walking around, some guy was playing Close to the Edge outside on the sidewalk at the Pike Place Market in Seattle.

Tonight, the American comedian Stephen Colbert made a joke about starting a new prog band and sang a couple of bars of "Roundabout!"  Great timing, as this is the 45th Anniversary of the release of "Fragile," one of Yes' best LPs!

I was at a grocery store last weekend and heard a proggy organ riff followed by a Minimoog solo on the in store speakers. The refrain reminded me of Simon & Garfunkel's Cecilia. I recognized it as a song that I had heard before in the same place so I jotted down a note about the lyrics to look up the song later.

It turned out to be Styx's Fooling Yourself. The only other song by Styx I was familiar with is Come Sail Away from the same album, The Grand Illusion, which I had heard on local a classic rock radio station before.

Whenever I hear glass break in public, my mind instantly goes to the intro to "The Runaway" by Gentle Giant Cool
The bluebells are ringing for Sweetmeal Sam, real ham,
handing out bread and jam just like any picnic...

Had to change this as while I listened to Tales From Topographic Oceans this morning, I discovered what the kid really played on that distant afternoon was the acoustic break to The Ancient (Giants Under the Sun).
