Regular readers know how much I hate the notion of advertising as a vehicle to introduce new music. On the other hand, as a listener myself, I hate even more those occasions when I catch a snippet of some song I love and I can’t find out who did it. With that in mind, a reader just send me the following question.
Jim… By any chance do you know the name of the male (group (?) ) singer in the Ford SE commerial? It sounds great! Thanks in advance.
Here’s a link to the tune.
Joe: I used to have a great resource for answering questions like this, and a Web site called “What’s That Called? Music from TV Commercials.” Alas, when I tried to use it to find your answer, it’s either down because of a momentary server malfunction, or it’s close up shop for good. A newer site called AdTunes.com has so far been pretty useless to me, and it turned up nothing on your question. Nor did a general Google search. So this, too, I throw out to the readers.
Can anyone help Joe out?
