@MaVolta - I've never seen that commercial, but love the song. If anyone's interested in the details: Alfa Romeo "Wicked Game" Commercial. Aha .. now I remember why the song was so familiar .. Chris Isaak's video w/model Helena Christensen!

Speaking of car commercials - I'm fascinated by this entry from Alfa-Romeo . . . professional drivers on a sheet of ice "dancing" to the song Wicked Game.

Another couple of commercials that use music that I found "haunting" are:

 

Jaguar (goes back a while): "Desert Rose"; the on-screen singer is Sting, but there are exotic Arabic background vocals by Algerian star, Cheb Mami.

 

Lincoln (more recent): Shastakovich's "Jazz Suite #2, Vals #2"

 

Hmm .. is that a pattern; do car companies spend a lot more on "lifestyle" ads?

@n566192l - That was a Lipton ad campaign, Lipton's "Refreshingly Optimistic Moments"


I loved that song! Used to sing it with Mom when I was a little girl.
