> :> Yes. The music part of it (not the 'Hey, hey you...' sample) is a NYC band called Fischerspooner. The song is 'Emerge' and it's about 3 years old. I was a DJ in NYC for the past 12 years. Hope this helps.- Rustyn
>> From what I know, the song is 'I Wish' by Skee-Lo...I could be wrong, but I have downloaded on my computer as that. I actually was just wondering what that song was called, as well. I saw it on the VH1 commercial and it caught my attention, so I came downstairs and just went to google.com. I typed in the lyrics that I knew (in quotation marks) and then searched it. That's always how I do it, so, for future reference, it's a lot easier! I hope that helps! ;D
> I've heard the 'hey you' vox in Les Rythmes Digitales' 'Hey You (What's That Sound)', but I suppose they're probably sampled from the Skee-Lo track. I'm guessing this was just a mashup created for the commercial. Several UK adverts and radio stations use bootlegs from GHP
, Left Handed Bastard, Andreas Churchill
, etc. So, it's a long-shot, but it's possible a third party pirate could have created this song, and VH1 bought the rights to air it in the commercial. However, as Viacom usually doesn't work that way, I don't think that's the case.
