Re: PLEASE Mercedes Benz String commericial
I think it may be Diana Krall's version of the 'I've got the world on a string' song. Frank Sinatra has sung that song and so has a few people. THe only thing is I've never heard Diana Krall's version, and judging by the jazzy nature of the song, the song in the commercial could be hers.
If you get anymore information be sure to post!

Actually, I was wrong, it's not Diana Krall, nor does it seem to be Peggy Lee.

Although I haven't heard her CD yet I'm guessing it might be Jennifer Ware. If you go to her distributor: http://www.theorchard.com/ and search for Jennifer Ware you get her page with this info about her 'I've got the World on A String' CD:
'Jazz standards from Gershwin/Porter Berlin with great guitar arrangements and solos by Joe Puma.'
Just a guess though.

I am currently on the same hunt ...
It is not Diana Krall .. it is a new recording in that commercial ... perhaps done for the commercial ..
I'm having trouble finding out myself who it is ...
but the song is World on a String

I thought it was Nora Jones at first, but it's not on her CD, nor does it show up when I search for it on Kazaa/Google. It sounds like her, and she might have just recorded it for the commcial. In that case, it's not avable for distribution. I hope someone can find out who sings it soon!
