hey all

Just wondering if anyone here knew the name of the song from the latest Fruitburst ad that was on TV. The one where the two cranes with the red & white wrecking balls smach the balls into eachother.

Thanks very much :)

Hi there

It's not a Fruitburst ad, it's an ad for Fresh and Fruity yoghurt. The song is Purple Haze by Groove Armada.

This site is brilliant and I use it quite a lot to find out the names of songs from various ads :)

No way!

I've had that song in my library for years, and never listened to it! Shocking!

Thanks very much mate :D

And now I will hijack this thread since I was going to start a new one - but this will do nicely. There is a song I like, heard on Telecom's on hold music, I wrote down what I think some of the lyrics are, yet I have extensively searched on google and turned up nothing...

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Heres bits and pieces I think I heard (I'm not good with lyrics):

I'm right here ready to go
lets get down, lets get down
lets hang out, together
get away for a while, sooner rather than later
looking for direction, making the connection

Hi Comradehunt,
I'd say you aint too flash with google cos it took about 20 seconds of my time (that you are welcome to have)


Did I get it right?

To be honest, I must be crap, cos I seriously spent hours, however as you can see from above and from the true lyrics, its no wonder I couldn't find it.

If I searched for just a few words, I'd get millions of hits. So I looked on youtube for lets get down, and it doesn't find it (finds lets get down bow wow, tony toni and everything else).

If I searched "looking for direction" (wrong), "making the connection" (wrong), "get away for a while" (wrong), sooner rather than later" (wrong), "lets hang out together" (wrong), I would find NO websites with the info because what I thought was being said was all wrong.

So other than that I only got 2 parts of the lyrics right, and when I search for them now it only brings up 4 web pages on the entire net. I assume in my search I added a false line of lyrics which mixed up the search.

Anyway, thank you very much and well done in finding it.
