Whether you are tech-savvy or not, it’s hard not to mourn the untimely death from pancreatic cancer of Apple co-founder and former CEO, Steve Jobs. An icon to many people across the world, Jobs was the quintessential definition of All-American entrepreneur. His innovations and designs challenged the computer and digital world.

One such innovation is the iPod. When music started to become a huge digital commodity, Jobs created a fresh, hip way to purchase and listen to mp3s. Jobs’ cutting-edge invention helped make music on-the-go pocket-sized and helped make discovering new music easier for music fans around the globe.

Part of helping people “discover new music” was Apple’s iPod campaigns which featured up-and-coming artists and older ones, dancing around as silhouettes against colorful backdrops. In honor of Steve Jobs and his contribution to music, we’ve compiled a list of our Top 10 iPod Commercials.
