Tracking down music from TV adverts

Have you ever heard a song on an advert and thought “I really like that – I wonder who it’s by and what it’s called”?

Well, I did exactly that tonight and a few minutes later a Google search for t mobile mates rates ad music turned up a fantastic link – the HMV music from TV page, which told me that the track I was looking for was “Ooh La La” by Goldfrapp.

Unfortunately for both HMV and T-Mobile neither of them made any money from this (I switched my mobile back from Orange to Vodafone today and I bought the Goldfrapp track at the Apple iTunes Music Store) but it’s definitely worth a look if you like the music you hear on a TV advert!

  1. Hey, would it be possible for you to tell me what the music in the new thomsonfly adverts is. It is also featured during the flight. Thanks, Dan

  2. Amber music ripped off henry mansini “lujon”. I still can’t work out what they did with it as it’s almost indistinguishable from the original. They seem to have just re-recorded it and taken credit.

    Not that I can find an example of the thomson version as thomson seem to have pulled it from their website.
