Do any of you remember this Chanel No 5 commercial from the late 70's/early 80's?
The song in the commercial is "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire" by the Ink Spots. Or so says the almighty Wikipedia. I dunno though. The vocals sound a bit different, maybe a bit of a higher tone from the version I remember. And a more distinct vibrato that I don't recall. Check out this version from a trailer for Fallout 3 (a video game)*.
Wikipedia says it is the same 1941 cover of the song by the Ink Spots, but they sound very different to me. What do you think? Could just be a recording issue. The reason why this came up was because Gia has it on her iPod. We were listening to it in the car the other day and I immediately thought it was from Stanley Kubrick's version of The Shining. It wasn't, but it is strangely evocative of that film. Then I remembered the Chanel No 5 commercial.
Anyway, here is another one from the great Ink Spots. "If I Didn't Care" with Bill Kenny singing lead.
*I couldn't find the original song in a video anywhere. Sucks.
