Does anyone know the music from the Guinness Northstar ad? Who is it by and what is it called? Thanks.
The Shins - New Slang
Also on the Garden State OST
Thank you kindly. Searched for it on itunes and now I have it. Wanted it for ages. Thanks again.
On a related note, can anybody tell me the song in the latest guinness ad? It has an acoustical guitar/banjo.
Called "Classical gas", I hate all these fecking ads playing music off my playlists! people hear it and then think you only listen to it since its on ads.
Dunno who does the version on the ad, the original, & my favourite, is by Mason Williams.
Though there is one song I want from an ad that I don't know, its an old carling black label ad, it had animation and an old bluegrass style song in it (think its called bluegrass anyway).
So when you're out there
Head for the great taste
The great taste of CarlEEEEEEng
It was a Cajun piece of music.
Twas good, alright.
Found it on youtube.
and here's the ad
Brilliant! thanks a lot, amazing sound to it. I looked on youtube a few years back and googled it too but found nothing, never thought I would get the song name, thought it might be some generic session cover or something, like those bulmers ad covers. This site will let you download stuff to various formats http://www.mediaconverter.org/
This is the original Mason Williams one
There is also an acoustic version without the orchestra
Here's a very similar version to that played in the new add, wouldn't be surprised if its the same people.
There is a cd available to buy on amazon. It's 'Guinness 250th Anniversary: music from the TV Ads' and it has various guinness ad tunes.
Some more info
I just went in search of this tune friends and realised I knew it from......
Mr. Chet Atkins
There are better versions but Chet knew a great tune and thats a FACT!
Clapton does one too -
Thats actually not him, the guy who posted it on that youtube page even says it in his info box thing.
The group that did this version were 'Area Code 615':

Cheers, looking for that for ages, song is called Classical Gas.
