Posted by List of many commercial songs on 18 years ago
Look through the list before asking a question. If you’ve looked and can’t find an answer, look through the list again. If it still isn’t there, look through the requests to see if someone has already asked about the song. If your question hasn’t been answered or asked—or if you have further information on an existing request—then go ahead and ask. Please be as specific as possible when making a request: list the actual product (e.g. car model and year), a description of the ad, and any lyrics or instruments you’re able to make out are a good start.
August 10, 2003: Vehicles have been split into their own category page.
July 30, 2003: Yes, those are ads. Seemed only appropriate, since this page is all about them.
Update as of June 26, 2003: I’ve cleaned up my e-mail backlog; time to start another one! As you can see from the 177 requests below, there aren’t many answers to be had, either. Please check out the list to see if you have any ideas; some queries have been here for over a year!

Filmed in New York's Central Park, 'Hands' features a young couple walking silently along a pathway, walking slightly apart. They catch up with an old couple who are walking hand-in-hand at barely half their speed. As the young couple passes the older couple, who seem as in love today as they were fifty-plus years ago, the younger couple reach out and take each others hands, walking closer and reconnecting. On the younger woman's hand is a three stone diamond anniversary ring, which gives an extra sparkle at this moment.

In the opening scene of 'Girl, Interupted' it shows several of the mental patients including Angelina Jolie and Winone Ryder in a dingy room and a very slow, instrumental song is playing (I believe its piano). The singer is male, although I cannot remember any lyrics. I have also heard this song on an episode of the TV show 'State Of Grace'. [serena, 2003/06/20]
Im looking for the song that is in the DC shoe commercial where they are out street skating and there are big letters spelling out LOVE on location. Please help! [Charlie, 2003/06/25]
What is the name of the song played in the current (2003) Diet Coke ad? There is a woman sitting on a train and a guy reading a newspaper. The only words I could hear from the song was 'Hello my love'. Any ideas? [jackie, 2003/07/03]
No more than 10 minutes into the film 'The Rules of Attraction', Ian Somerhalder is talking to 2 guys at a party. A song comes on, and one of the guys says 'oh man, I love this song'..... there's a 5-10 second chance to identify it.... [Greg, 2003/07/07]
it's not a commercial or on the radio much but I was still wondering if you could find them, I heard them at hockey games, the chorus goes: oh hey, oh hey, oh hey, oh hey, ohhhhhhh heyyyyyyyy, ohhhhhhhh heyyyyyyyyyy, put it isn't the 11:30 song. the other songs chorus goes whoaaaaaaa, whoaaaaaa whoaaaaa , with a bunch of guys yelling it in the back grown. [Andrew, 2003/07/07]
I want to find what song gets played between shows on PBS channel 13 in New York. It plays while clips of PBS characters are playing. It's ususually played from 3 to 5 and is always cut short. [Maxine Kuang, 2003/07/18]
