Want to know what the music they used in the Volkswagen EOS ad is? You know, the tune that starts “I woke up dreaming…”. You know, this one (although this is the US version and has a completely different track. But it has the same visuals, just so we know what I’m on about)
Well, it’s by an unsigned group called The Dallas Guild and it’s called “Men in White Coats”. You can hear their work on their own site or on their MySpace page. Sorry, no iTunes link because of that whole unsigned thing.
I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
