Been wondering the same thing. Doesn't really sound like Norah to me. I sent Nike cust service an email and asked them. Probably won't get a response but who knows. They probably won't know anyway. :(

Maybe it's Sheryl....hehehe. :D

It's an originals score. The WearYellow spot's music, composed by Dave Wittman and Jimmy Haun at Elias Arts, Los Angeles with support from creative director David Gold and head of production Dayna Turcotte, features the vocal talents of Kathleen Fisher.

The sound was designed by creative director Dane Davis and Eddie Kim at 740 Sound/Danetracks with help from producer Scott Ganary, and Jeff Payne at Eleven Sound Studios in Santa Monica mixed the final audio

yeah I dig that music... a lot... It actually has been in my head the past few rides...

I'm glad they are playing it all over, and not just during cycling related shows... I think I saw it during the NBA finals the other night

Great commercial actually taped it, I had no idea who the rider was, so much for being informed. Nike really hit the nail on the head with that one.

Is this music available to the general public? I can't get the tune out of my head. I have to have a copy!

I want a copy of the comercial. Any ideas? Computer copy; not VCR...

It looks like you can download a Quicktime version. Just right click the image and save it to
you computer. Heck there is a email address listed on that site. You could try contacting them but I doubt they would send you a copy (copyright issues and all that)

Ron - are you in the ad or commercial production biz? Reason I ask is because I am and having worked with several of the people you mention, I wonder if it's possible we know each other?

Every time I see that commercial I just have a strong desire to get out and ride. It really hits hard.

Doesn't let you save it.... perhaps if I was using Quicktime Pro?

Fugazi Dave 06-11-04 11:24 AM

Someone can make a new thread out of this if they like, but here's how to get the quicktime version of the file if you want it.

Click this link. Right click>save as on the link. Voila, Lance as quicktime.

No, just someone with an unnatural interest in minutia. I don't mean to trivialize the efforts of those who created and produced the spot. The commercial captured me the first time I saw it a couple of weeks ago so I endeavored to learn more about it. It seems "Whose music is that?" is a question asked quite frequently.

I'm in New Jersey, looking out the window glumly knowing the rain has stolen another day of biking from me. It's not likely we've ever crossed paths.

Thanks Postmansi, this link works great. I right clicked (image on right hand side of the page) and put it on my desktop. However, I can't figure how to actually get it into my Quicktime player so I can increase the screen size, etc.?

By the way....the audio is full fidelity and sounds great.

Correction:

It's a plagarized score. Elias stole the arrangement from a local songwriter. Don't they have a reputation for doing that kind of thing?
