    1. The first one is for Suzuki. It's a car driving through Times Square in New York I think and it's an old song. Nothing modern. I think it's a love song. EDIT: FOUND

    2. The jazzy little one in the one commercial where the dude is waiting in the car for his girlfriend and he hears the jazz band upstairs. It's really jazzy then it adds some techno beats.

    EDIT:

    3. Also, another Mitsubishi commercial. One where some really funky electric guitar music. It's been used in their commericals before. In this newest one, it cuts into an SUV to kids watching Spongebob. It then goes back to the funky electric guitar music.

    Is there a website that lists these kinds of things?

    For the first song, I suppose you're referring to Rod Stewart's version of The Way You Look Tonight. I've seen a commercial for his CD called something like American Songbook Vol. 2. I would imagine this track can be found there or on Vol. 1.

    Thanks Greg. I found it quickly on iTunes. There's about 14 different versions though. Which one is the best in your opinion?

    The Mitsu song is "Horndog" by Overseer.

    2.

    If this is a Lincoln commercial--then I think it's either Mr Scruff or Mr Gruff.

    Led Zep's "Rock 'n Roll" is on every single Cadillac commercial, not just the one for the SUV, whatever it's called.

    I was wondering about the song in the Mitsubishi SUV commercial as well. Thanks Chris.

    Reviving the thread, because I just found out James Darren has a CD with "The Way You Look Tonight" included. As you may know, James Darren played Vic Fontaine on Deep Space Nine, and this particular CD contains all or most of the songs he performed on the show. Too bad it doesn't have Nana Visitor doing "Fever." [​IMG]

    Anyway, here's a link with clips:

    I have a question about the Lexus radio commercials I hear all the time. Is the announcer Donald Sutherland? It sounds like him to me.

    According to the IMDb, he does Volvo ads. That doesn't rule out Lexus. You may try searching on Lexus "voice over."

    They've overplayed Rock 'n roll so much I am sick of it. Never thought I'd say that about a Zep song, but it's massively overdone.

    I believe Joe Mantegna does the VO work for Lexus...

    The Lincoln tune is "Get A Move On" by Mr. Scruff.

    Love that one. Tap my feet every time I hear it. Now I just gotta FIND it somewhere. [​IMG]
