    Title says it all. I've been looking all over for the name of it but am apparently looking in all the wrong places. Can someone help me out?

    I'm not sure which trailer you're referring to. The theaterical trailer is quite long and starts with the intro bass line to Walk on the Wild Side by Lou Reed. The other song included is Superman by Five For Fighting. Which is now played every five minutes on Top 40 radio.

    I believe I've also heard one of the songs from David Gray's White Ladder album in one of the TV spots. All of these should be available for preview on Amazon.com.

    Greg, the TV trailer or spot I'm referring to only has one song in it. It has a pretty catchy beat, but you don't hear any words until the very end of the spot.

    Thanks for the help!

    The trailer I remember seeing at apple.com had "Superman" by Five For Fighting. Is the song you're thinking of piano-based?

    Michael, I have been looking for a downloadable trailer that has the song I'm thinking of but I can't find one anywhere. It's not Superman by Five for Fighting, as that's the trailer I've only been able to find. [​IMG]
