Cinematic Orchestra and Patrick Watson

So, I love music from commercials.  Whoever the tastemakers of ad agencies are, they are going a great job because I have searched for and purchased tons of song from commercials.

Example: A perfume commercial for Aqua di Gioia by Giorgio Armani.  Saw it, loved the music.  I hoped that it was a real song but I thought it might have just been composed for the commercial. Record scratch! It’s a real song by people I already know and love!

Here is the commercial:

The music is by Cinematic Orchestra and the song is actually from the soundtrack of a DisneyNature film, The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos.

I looked on itunes and you can buy the movie but not the soundtrack (i submitted request for the cd, but who knows how long that will take, i guess i will try amazon next).

The song is called The Arrival of the Birds:

Cinematic Orchestra has tons of great work; I especially appreciate their collaborations with Patrick Watson.

Patrick Watson‘s band is named Patrick Watson.  Are they “The Patrick Watsons” or are they each a Patrick Watson?

Also, I can’t find this anywhere else but Perez Hilton (who I feel ashamed to admit that I read).  Cinematic Orchestra and Patrick Waston – Paint the Sky


Taran Killam Gets Down to Robyn

I watched the SNL episode with Katy Perry as host and Robyn as the musical quest and I was pleasantly surprised. Katy Perry wasn’t in every sketch but I thought she did a great job and this whole season has been pretty good (every episode has ups and downs, but at least I consistently say “Ok, that was pretty good.”) Robyn was amazing and apparently the SNL writers/cast were happy to have her!


I love the coat.  I love that girl from College Humor.  I love the flashlights.  I love the guy who doesn’t react at all.  I love that there is amazing technology just chilling, like, on the floor.  I love the roll.  I love that he kind of loses steam toward the end.  I love the tight pants.  I love the coat.  For reals, the coat.
