I also want to know, It definantly sounds like Bela Lugosi's Dead, but I can't seem to find the remix of it that was used in the commercial. I hope this isn't one of those, 'one commerical, 20 seconds of remixing' deals.

I've seen a few posts stating that it's Shirades. Not sure if it's 'The Shirades' or just 'Shirades'. I can't find any reference anywhere to a band called Shirades though. Can someone post a link showing that they even exist?

I see that as well, but my theory is, if google can't find it, it isn't on the internet.

I had a fever of 104.3 this entire weekend, but I think I did see a glimpse of the commercial, and I think it was 'Son Volt - Chanty' that was playing.

All the music in the current Grand Prix ads are original scores which means the
music was put together by a studio and not by a band or artist that currently
has an album out. An original score is unique music developed for this
advertisement.The music remains untitled and is not available for public sale.

there ya ahve it

' Not even close guy, you must have fried some brain parts from that fever. Are you even talking about the Pontiac Grad Prix commercial?'

Original?
I don't think so....
Sounds like a remix of Bauhaus' 'Bela Lugosi's Dead' (from early 80's I might ad)

There is a similarity between the Grand Prix commercial score and Bauhaus' 'Bela Lugosi's Dead' but it seems to be only in the bass guitar. The Pontiac music is fabulous, though, is't it? What a bummer that we cannot hear any more....



alright guys, here is what pontiac had to say:

It's not 'Shirades,' it's 'Charades' and that's the name of the overarching advertising campaign for the 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix. 'Charades' is a series of 4 different commercials.
The specific commercial with the blind girl driving in the desert is called 'Guy/Girl.' I don't know any more information after that.
Hopes that ends the search for 'Shirades.'
PS: The song does very much sound like a remix of Bauhaus' 'Bela Lugosi's Dead.'

I have a copy of the music from the commercial if you wanted it. Its not Bauhaus at all. Pontiac made a custom song for the specific commercial. Let me know if you want it. jsurf@hawaii.rr.com. Make sure you make the subject in the email BOLD so I can see it, I get a lot of emails through that account and i tend to overlook them.
