Music Heard in Chase Credit Card Commercial
If you've seen the Chase Manhattan Bank Visa Mastercard commercial, with the piano playing, and the man going through various stages of life (graduation, marriage, children), maybe you've wondered "who sings that song" or "what song is that?" Lyrics such as "I'm 15 for a moment"...
Well, I have the answers for you!
The song, by Five for Fighting, is 100 Years and can be found on their album "The Battle For Everything." You might recall that voice from the previous hit "Superman (It's Not Easy)."
The commercial is called "Life" and can be viewed online here. The ads were produced by mcgarrybowen New York.
By the way, "they" are a one-man-band. That man being John Ondrasik. The name "Five for Fighting" is a reference fo Hockey and the 5 minute penalty players get for fghting.
Great commercial, and good matching of a song to a concept. It is an older song, but you wouldn't know it by listening.
I'd link to the lyrics, but I grow weary of the spam-laden pop-up sites that pretend to be lyrics sites.
I get a dual-meanig for the song. As a child, growing up, the years don't seem to pass fast enough. For parents, watching a child grow, the years seem to be gone in "just a moment." But it could apply to those with cancer, watching a loved one suffer, soldiers away from home. Sorry to be such a mush-head, but sometimes songs just get to me....
