Oh My Baby, Sweet My Honey...

I realize there's a lot of issues/things going on in the world today that would be far more important to discuss, but as the World Cup soccer tourney stomps along, I'm sure I've seen/heard the (Canadian) Rogers Mobile Phone ad about a thousand times - and the music track underneath sounds like a Bob Dylan song, but being the music nut that I be, I cannot place it.

Help me someone....ARTIST & SONG?

The guitar sounds kind of like Tragically Hip, but the voice at the end sounds like Dylan.

A google search of the lyrics turned up this page, which is for a Japanese hip-hop group called "Kick the Can Crew", who may just be sampling this song or completely unrelated. I don't know, I don't speak Japanese.

I'm going to post your comment on the front page for tomorrow. I'm telling you, war stories are the best reading. I'll cross-link to here. Thanks for commenting!

Diva: yikes! Now the pressure is really on to perform... yet my most pressing issue is still to find out who does the song on that Rogers commercial - at least jut gave it a shot --- anyone?

Dave said...

wow - that is one seriously hard to find song. I failed, too.

I did, however, find a link here:

Some guy said he was e-mailing Rogers' & would update the post with the answer.

Might just bookmark that site for a bit until somebody gets the song :)

Sorry Will, we don't get that add here (& I dont dare to watch the clip at work) - bummer...

Hope you'll be able to solve the mystery soon!

Good luck
