Default What is this song???

December 15th, 2014, 04:56
It's in that one Macy's commercial that comes on, something about a fragrance by such-and-such, and the music is like this electronic, downtempo with female vocals saying something like "the thrillll is gooooonee", etc. It's sort of a cutting edge pop art type commercial.

Any ideas of what the heck I am talking about?

"The thrill is gone" is actually a song : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Thrill_Is_Gone

No, it's not that song at all. It's some downtempo, electronic, cutting edge/modern electronic music with female vocals. It sounds really unique. I can't make out exactly what the woman is singing because I don't remember the commercial all that well. I just remember her singing "the thrill is goooonnne", with loud drums and dark sounding synths.

Hopefully someone here has seen the commercial and can get this figured out for me. I really want to check out that song!

How about this — Monika Leigh: "The Thrill Is Gone". It's from a The Voice audition.

Thrasher, none of those ads are the commercial I'm talking about. The one I'm talking about is a very short spot for some cutting edge fragrance by some fancy fragrance maker. I can't seem to find any information online about it and I've only seen it a few times recently. The commercial looks like an Ed Hardy ad or something, with strange, dark colors being splashed on the screen. Hard to explain.

Arhu, that's not the song. Again, this song is a thumping, cutting edge dark, gothic style almost, with pounding drums and female vocals. I can't really describe it well because I'm not familiar with this style. It's almost cinematic, the way the melody changes pitch up the scale. Really interesting stuff.

Haven't seen the commercial on air in the past few days so I can't really find out who it's by. Bummer, because this song sounds amazing and I'd love to investigate further.
