Cadillac SRX Commercial Music (Falling)

-

The current Cadillac commercial for the new 2010 Cadillac SRX is using Phoenix’s 1901 in the commercial. Might be tough to figure out because there are few lyrics heard. One of my favorite albums of the year.

Song: 1901 (iTunes) | (Amazon MP3)
Album: Wolfgang Amadeus Motzart (iTunes) | (Amazon MP3)
Artist: Phoenix

1901 Lyrics
Counting all different ideas drifting away
Past and present — they don’t matter.
Now the future’s sorted out
Watch, you’re moving in elliptical pattern
Think it’s not what you say
What you say is way too complicated
For a minute thought I couldn’t tell how to fall out.

It’s 20 seconds ’til the last call, going “hey hey hey hey hey hey”
Lie down, you know it’s easy like we did it all summer long
And I’ll be anything you ask and more, going “hey hey hey hey hey hey”
It’s not a miracle we needed, and no I wouldn’t let you think so
Falling, falling, falling, falling

Girlfriend, know your girlfriend’s drifting away
Past and present, 1855-1901
Watch them build up a material tower
Think it’s not gonna stay anyway
Think it’s overrated
For a minute, thought I couldn’t tell how to fall out

It’s 20 seconds to the last call, going “hey hey hey hey hey”
Lie down, you know it’s easy, like we did it all summer long
And I’ll be anything you ask and more, going “hey hey hey hey hey”
It’s not a miracle we needed, and no, I wouldn’t let you think so
Falling, falling, falling, falling
Falling, falling, falling, falling

Honda Insight TV Commercial Music

-

Honda is rolling out their new Insight with commercials featuring some cool music from bands like Great Lake Swimmers. So far this is what I’ve found.

See You On the Moon (iTunes)
Great Lake Swimmers - For the Kids Three! - See You On the Moon
Lyrics from the commercial:

When I grow up maybe I’ll be a singer in a band
and I’ll drive all across the land
with my friends all in the van
and I’ll sing into a microphone
but when it’s over, I’ll come home
while the people go “clap, clap, clap”
and the drummer goes “tap, tap, tap”
and thank you singer.

maybe I’ll be an astronaut and work for NASA.
maybe I’ll see you on the moon,
I’ll see you on the moon,
I’ll see you on the moon.

Not sure who the following commercial is using. Let me know in the comments.
Lyrics I hear are:

Let’s all paint the town red and white black and brown
Watch the colors dry, they mix so well it’s no surprise
We are all in this together
Let’s all build a home, gather up the friends you know
Somewhere we can go

And here’s one more using Honey Tree by Mostar Driving Club (Myspace)
Lyrics from the commercial:

Just another perfect day
I think I’ll walk this way where the trees do sing
Feeling part of everything
When all my troubles seem to fade away
Skies look brighter
I feel, feel a change

Jaguar XF Commercial Music

-

The commercial promoting the new Jaguar XF Sports Sedan is Oasis’ “The Shock of the Lightning” (iTunes).

“The Shock of the Lightning” (Amazon MP3)

“The Shock of Lightning” lyrics (iTunes)
I’m all over my heart’s desire,
I feel cold but I’m back in the fire,
Out of control but I’m tied up tight,
Come in, come out tonight.

I’m comin’ up in the early morning,
I feel love in the shock of the lightning,
I fall into the blinding light,
Come in, come out, come in, come out tonight.

Love is a time machine,
Up on the silver screen,
It’s all in my mind,
Love is a litany,
A magical mystery,
And all in good time, and all in good time,
And all in good time.

I got my feet on the street but I can’t stop flyin’,
My head’s in the clouds but at least I’m tryin’,
I’m out of control but I’m tied up tight,
Come in, come out tonight.

There’s a hole in the ground into which I’m fallin’,
So God speaks to the sound of the poundin’,
I’m all into the blinding light,
Come in, come out, come in, come out tonight..

Love is a time machine,
Up on the silver screen,
It’s all in my mind,
Love is a litany,
A magical mystery,
And all in good time, and all in good time,
And all in good time.

It’s all in my mind,
Love is a time machine,
Up on the silver screen,
And all in good time, and all in good time,
And all in good time.

“Your a Wolf” Lyrics (iTunes)

I’m walking on the southern street, cut to the river ‘fore I run too low.
I’m walking on the southern street, cut to the river ‘fore I run too low.

Old gypsy woman spoke to me, lips stained red from a bottle of wine.
Old gypsy woman spoke to me, lips stained red from a bottle of wine.
“The one that you are looking for, you’re not gonna find her here.”
“The one that you are looking for, you’re not gonna find her here, here.”

I’m runnin’ on the northeast street, cut to the ocean ‘fore I run too low.
I’m runnin’ on the northeast street, cut to the ocean ‘fore I run too low,
Cut to the ocean ‘fore I run too low.
“The one that you are looking for, you’re not gonna find her here.”
“The one that you are looking for, you’re not gonna find her here, here.”

Old gypsy woman spoke to me, said, “You’re a wolf, boy, get out of this town.”

GM Commercial Music

-

The new GM commercial covering all of their brands (Buick, Cadillac, Chevy, GMC, Hummer, Pontiac, Saturn, and Saab) is using Brandi Carlile’s The Story as its music soundtrack. Great song.

Artist: Brandi Carlile
Track: “The Story (iTunes) | “The Story” (Amazon MP3)

Brandi Carlile - The Story - The Story

The Story lyrics – (iTunes)
All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true…I was made for you
I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do
I was made for you
You see the smile that’s on my mouth
It’s hiding the words that don’t come out
And all of my friends who think that I’m blessed
They don’t know my head is a mess
No, they don’t know who I really am
And they don’t know what
I’ve been through like you do
And I was made for you…
All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true…I was made for you

Ford Flex Commercial – Santogold

-

Funny, I just wrote about Santogold on my other blog, and here she is being featured in the new commercial for the 2009 Ford Flex. Not sure which song it is, but it may be a remix of her single “L.E.S. Artistes” (iTunes).
