Could someone please help me find the artist/name of song to the Volvo commercial where the father of 2 kids is running back and forth in the C70 wagon to watch his kid's soccer game and swim meet...the background music sounds like 'Rock The Casbah' by The Clash and a guy is singing...'it's gonna be alright.' It's not that jazzy song by Mr. Scruff, it sounds more dance-like.

It's called 'It's Gonna Be Alright' by NIBNE9, Pussy 2000 (radio edit). Enjoy

Good ears! Actually, two of the composers (Mick Jones and Joe Strummer) are members of The Clash.
The commercial is actually for the Volvo V70 wagon and is titled 'It's Gonna
be Alright' by Pussy 2000 - composers Sterling Void , Paris Robinson, Joe Strummer, Mick Jones and Nick Topper Headon.

Amy,
Did you find out? Noticed this was quite an old post...I've been trying to find out what that song is too!!! I'm still looking... If I find out anything, I'll let you know!

Pussy 2000
It's Alright
Distinctive
Pussy 2000 are the UK production team who would have been on the UK Music Industry's '10 Most Wanted List' if there was such a thing after a strew of what's become known as 'Accapella Mash Ups'. This included illegally mixing up hits by Daft Punk & Sub Sub onto one record for devastating effect and soon after, this genius mix of 'Rock 'The Casbah' by The Clash & Stirling Void's 80's anthem 'It's Alright'. That was back in late 1999 and it's taken two years for Distinctive to finally put it out as a full release. The track uses the backing guitar riff from The Clash and loops it into a Stardust like arrangement while the 'It's Alright' vocals float lovingly over the top - it's that simple but very effective regardless and getting a very large crowd reaction whenever it's dropped on the decks. Coupled with a very funky animated video this is sure to make inroads to a few of the record buying publics wallets when it gets a full release in the coming weeks.

Hi, found your post here wheh I was just looking for the same. I found it! The song is 'It's Gonna Be Alright' by Pussy 2000!
BTW: Lyrics are from the Pet Shop Boys song 'It's Alright' (which they originally got from a group called Sterling Void).
