What's the music in this advert?

Asked by Vincentt (8054points) September 1st, 2008

There’s this commercial airing at the moment for the Samsung Touchwiz. I’m very interested in the music that’s used – does anybody know the name?

It’s my guess that it is instrumental music, specifically written for that advert, and is not from any other source.

The only way to know for certain, is to contact the advertising agency that created the advert.

When you contact them, please also request the name and home telephone number of the first woman shown in the advert…

I figured the same, but I know of another advert that had music written specifically for that advert, that was made into a real song with title ‘n all.

Be careful what you ask for, I’m crazy enough to do it ;-)

Go to AdTunes.com and see if anyone has more information there.

I think it’s specifically written. I shazam’d it. And shazam has never failed me!

@bmhit1991 Tell me more about shazam. I am not familiar with it.

You could also contact the company. Their marketing people could probably tell you.

Shazam is used on some cell phones. I’m not sure what else it works on, if anything. It uses the microphone on the phone to listen for 12 seconds of a song. After that, it sends in what it just heard, and pulls up a single song that it found. It matches it perfectly every time (so long as it’s not like a local band or anything). And it doesn’t record live music performances because those are always slightly different. But if you hear a song on the radio or in a public area like a store or something, and you like it, activate Shazam. It’ll listen to 12 seconds, then tell you what the song is. It’s gotten special remixes specific and everything. Some services pull up a list of possible songs, but Shazam is more accurate. It knows what song it is and tells you the specific one you’re hearing. It’s a free download from the App Store for iPhones. (iPod touch doesn’t have a microphone, so there’s reason in getting it for that). It works VERY well though. I love it. It was also on an old Sony Ericson phone I had to use for a couple of days when I got my iPhone repaired. But that one didn’t work really well. The one on my iPhone is excellent. It also keeps a tag record. Like, I can go back and tell you that the first song I tagged was gets phone…... on July 11, 2008 @ 4:42 PM and it was Aly & AJ singing “Do You Believe In Magic” from the album “Into The Rush.” I did it just as a test, but it worked. And more than one group sings the song, and it told me the right one. It also gives you the option to take you to the iTunes app so you can preview it and/or buy it. Or a link to a youtube video to let you listen to it for free. Just tried the youtube thing for the first time while I was typing this. Worked great. Started playing in seconds. Pulling up the song in iTunes does not work half the time, but it gives you the info to find it in iTunes easy. Great app.

That does sound great. Is it enough for me to get an Iphone? Probably not. I am a Luddite, but if I ever do, I will keep it in mind. Seems to me they could make that a Web app and make money too. Thanks for the info.

No problem. Now there’s probably never going to be a single reason to get an iPhone. The biggest reason is all the different stuff it can do. And really, the fact that everything works. All the other phones I’ve been on, I couldn’t figure out how to make the “special features” work. Anything they try to do special on a phone, pretty much never works. iPhone does!
