: Happy to see the weekly update...always a treat!
: To every one, a belated Happy Easter......
: While the TV was on recently, what did I hear to lure me to the tube...put a cover of Clannad's "I Will Find You"....for, would you believe it, some commercial for an insurance company(?)(I am an advertiser's nightmare...) Alliang Insurance (?)....quite a long commercial but unmistakenly our LOTM song being sung behind it (not by Clannad). Even my sons (2nd generation LOTM'ers) recognized it! (And called me in to the room!) (Good little LOTM'ers!)
: So, even if the Academy Awards snubbed the sound track; at least several commercial interests find it useful! I guess they figure someone must recognize the tune; or it is really a great tune!!!!
I heard it while I was in Australia and thought it was local there! I did notice that the "I'll be there" was used in place of "I will find you". I also noticed the singer was different, but the music sure sounds the same as that on the CD (did they use a karioki tape?). Basically, I thought it was totally hokey!
