Fiest 1234, Amazon & O Canada

I'm a sucker for really good pop music - and Leslie Fieist's 1234 fits the bill nicely:

It's been featured as an Apple ipod Nano commercial - but what is ironic (for me anyway) is that I just brought the DRM free version at Amazon's new Digital Service's Store for .89 - 10 cents less than the iTunes Store.

And from Wikipedia:

Feist's single "1 2 3 4" has been featured in many advertising campaigns:

HBO's promos for its summer 2007 schedule.

Apple's advertising campaign for its third generation iPod nano, which premiered on September 5, 2007.

Urban Outfitters clothing promotion video in the Summer 2007 season.

eBay advertising aired in Australia beginning August 2007.

Lifetime Television used it to promote their new show Side Order of Life throughout the summer of 2007.

BBCs Match of the Day on Saturday 29th September 2007.

Bigpond Music download service commercial in Australia.

And speaking of Fiest who is from Canada, what's up with all this music from Canada? A lot of great music is streaming south of the border.

I've got Barenaked Ladies, Nelly Furtado, Diana Krall, Sarah McLachlan, Joni Mitchell, Alanis Morissette, and Neil Young representing Canada on my iPod.

One day, I have to set foot in Canada and tour the sights and sounds of what Canada has to offer.

If you like Canadian music, you are barely scratching the surface!! Check out a few of these bands (mostly indie, all great): New Pornographers, Destroyer, Arcade Fire, Awkward Stage, The Besnard Lakes, The Ghost is Dancing, Stars, Of Montreal, and A.C. Newman.
