TV Commercial: Name That Tune
May 2, 2008 12:27pm CST
This has happened to me before with songs I get hooked on and end up searching for it on iTunes to buy. Maybe the U.S. viewing audience can help w/ this one. The commercial is a promo for Mother's Day and buying the old gal a cell phone. Anyway it opens with varied camera angles of CG flowers turning and bursting open in slow mo. In the background playing is this really cool, mellow yet kinda hip tune. It sounds like the lyrics are um,"i fell asleep amongst the flowers, for a couple of hours, on a beautiful day." But the word before "i fell asleep..." I can't quite make out. Is it 'Dreamin' or 'Daydream' or something like that? If so, is that the name of the song or not? Thanks a bunch 4 ur help. 'J'

The song has been dubbed, sampled, remixed and rerecorded a dozen times, but the version on that particular commercial is called Daydream and is done by Lupe Fiasco featuring Jill Scott. It has samples from Daydream in Blue by I Monster and Glory Box by Portishead in this particular remix.
