A few days ago, I had posted about the National Anthems played at the Olympics. In the comments, Pua and Billy had some questions about other music in commercials, and I had mentioned the incredibly gorgeous Haagen-Dazs commercials. I did some research today and here are some answers to some of those questions:
First, a great website that tracks music in commercials: http://www.songtitle.info/
It is on that website that I found this info for Pua about the Volkswagen Touareg commercial music:
Commercial: Volkswagen Touareg “Picture”
Artist: Richard Buckner
Song: Ariel Ramirez
I also browsed to the Volkswagen website and found this, where I finally got to see the commercial in question.
And on this website, I was compelled to find out about that beautiful music for the Haagen-Dazs commercials. And I found that all I had to do was go to Haagen-Dazs’s website. They have links where you can download not only the commercials, but MP3 versions of the music. I also found this forum where someone had actually written Haagen-Dazs about the music and got a response explaining where it came from.
And now you know!
