Ok, here goes, I saw someone post a question like this on C+ and it worked.

What's the name of this piece of music?

It's electronic, and 'pingy' and they always used to use it to play over shots of sand yachts and things back in the 80's and I heard it yesterday in a carphone warehouse ad..

Possibly by Jean-Micheal Jarre? But I dunno.

It goes like this:

doo doo doo-doo doo-doo dooo

doo doo doo-doo doo-doo dooo

doo doo doo-doo-doo doo-doo doo-doo-doo doo-doo

doo doo doo-doo doooo

<change key, repeat>

I quite like to see if I can download it from itunes... But I don't hink I can search for doo-doo doos

Popcorn it is. It's on i-tunes, too. Don't be fooled by the other versions, like by Crazy F*ckin' Frog, or other rave-y versions. I still have the original 7" single somewhere in the attic! :tongue:

which is an online database of ads. Search for carphone warehouse on the front page and it should come up with all the ads so you can watch them!
I refer the right-honourable member for the East Midlands to the answer I gave previously :tongue:[/url]
 
Ahem, but, your smuttiness, it's a useful resource, and in future, if anyone wants to look up ads for their music or whatever the link is here!

No, I'd recognised it on the ad, but the doo-doo's confirmed my popcornery-suspicions...
Cheers Kirstie for the link, too. It is useful! :tongue:

That music always makes me think of the gymnast Nadia Cominec (sp) at the olympic games doing her floor routine in 1976?!?
