What’s That Song? Part XXI

Tonight, on a very special What’s That Song, all the commercials are from tech companies.

Artist: Air, Song: “Alone in Kyoto”

This supremely relaxing and pleasant commercial is for Samsung’s Galaxy Note. Which is notable, because the first Samsung Galaxy Note commercial, aired during the Super Bowl, was anything but relaxing. I kinda liked it because of the goofy energy, but this is much different. “Alone in Kyoto” comes from the Lost in Translation soundtrack. That’s a movie I should see sometime, but haven’t gotten around to. I’m pretty bad at seeing movies.

This iPhone 4S commercial does a nice job of simplifying the idea of cloud computing with iCloud. I like the song too, but I can’t actually find who it’s by. When I do, I’ll put it up.

Artist: Violent Femmes, Song: “Blister in the Sun”

Something tells me that a church choir wouldn’t be singing a song rumored to be about masturbation. And it’s a classic but it also feels strangely symbolic that HP, a company with some recent troubles, would use a song from almost 30 years ago.
