What is the song in the new Saturn Ion commercial?

The theme is High School and beyond. Teenagers are driving Ion through this town where everybody is a teenager, many are in formal wear as in dressed for Proms, etc. The song sounds new age and as if it were done by a real artist.

Any ideas?

Is it Alphaville - Forever Young?

The only Ion commercial that I have seen recently has used Forever Young in it.

Yeah, but that's not the Alphaville version of the song in the commercial. That's somebody covering or re-mixing the tune.

"We've Been Had" by The Walkmen from the album "Everyone Who Pretended To Like Me Is Gone"

OK, thanks. I did see that Alphaville had a remix, maybe that was it. This one I was tracking down for a coworker, he is happy with the Alphaville - Forever Young lead.

I was about to ask who did the song in the new Mitsubishi Outlander commercial, but I found the answer (Telepopmusik's song "Breathe").

There is an interesting CD called "Mitsubishi Mix" that Mitsubishi gave out last fall with about 12 songs from their commercials, including "Breathe".

ahem... please try searching next time. a simple search for "saturn" would've turned up threads on both this song and the song from the high school commercial.

by the by, because of the thread linked in this post, i bought the album (only named in this thread, tho). it is a very good album. :thumbs up:

so, new song, same question: this time i'm referring to the Ion commercial where they are "Leaving College". the lyrics are just the word "Yeah" repeated quite a few times.

thanks!

That's Tiny Spark by Brendan Benson, which is on his latest album, Lapalco. Great album...
