Hello Gang!
It's been awhile since I last checked in but good to see the site is getting so much attention.

I am looking for the song and artist of the latest Honda Civic commercial where it starts with an older honda civic car and then show a guy in a "Save the Earth" t-shirt and the shirt keeps changing a more modern type of t-shirt and at the end of the commercial, the new honda civic appears.
The music sounds like a Black Rebel Motorcycle Club tune but I am not sure. Your help would very much be appreciated!
Cheers from Seattle!
Rick

Does anyone know the song from this Honda ad? The guy walks down the street as the Save The Earth T-shirt goes through several decades of changes.

I've searched the internet and found no answer. I don't think it is the BMRC.

Please help? Thanks.

It is very strange that the commercial can't be found anywhere....YouTube, Honda sites...when I google it, it comes back to us here at adtunes.

Keep looking folks...looks like many of us are wondering by the hits this topic as generated.
Cheers from Seattle!

Hey everyone,

I have seen this commercial a couple of times now and have been trying to find it, no luck yet. I wonder if honda is trying to give back to the world. "Save the Earth" has been around for a long time check it out http://www.savetheearth.org

Well, I was looking for this song too. To me it sounds like a Beck song. Although it undoubtedly, whether it is or isn't a Beck song, is a bit of knock off of Led Zeppelin's Traveling Riverside Blues. (Which is also a take on the Robert Johnson song of the same name but they sound nothing alike.)

It sounds curiously like a mix between LZ's Travelling Riverside Blues

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtEAp-Rybl0[/ame]

and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's "Ain't No Easy Way"

- [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NI27q3xNyI[/ame]

And yeah, a bit of Beck, Loser too - but mostly the above two.

I'm not sure of the name of the song in the Honda Civic ad but I think I've narrowed down the name of the 12 string guitar artist to Leo Kottke. Check him out on his site & youtube. http://www.leokottke.com/cgi-bin/ontour/leotour.cgi or [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJNq5YqZ3EI[/ame]

Good luck finding it!

I bet it's the other guy that you guys have mentioned, but the song sounds like John Lennon's song for John Sinclair.

I would like to know this too, although if there hasn't been an answer by now, it was probably made just for the ad. Shazam doesn't recognize it.

Even if it is a session player / group brought together just for the commercial, can't Honda reveal the name of the session players? I mean, as long as the song is not some IP owned by Honda, why not share that information? I'm going to call Honda in Torrence, CA tommorow and ask them why not... just trying to understand.

Honda Civic Hybrid

I am trying to find the song for the new 2010 Honda Civic Hybrid commercial. It starts off with an old honda civic, and then a guy gets out, starts walking down the street. His shirt is something about the environment, and it keeps changing to different environmental friendly shirts. Anyone know the song? kind of has a bluegrass feeling to it.

Re: Honda Civic Hybrid

I can't find a copy of the ad. If you can find it and post it, I'll have a better shot at helping you.

The only Honda song that comes to mind right now is Together by Rabbit used in this ad...
