Hi there!

Does anyone know what the song is in the VW Touareg commercial where the couple drives up to take a photo of a mountain view, then drives back down to return the camera to a senior citizen waiting at a tour bus down below? It's so beautiful, and the voice is so familiar...

Not yet ;) But I've only seen it once so far.

I really liked it though so I'll be on it like a drunk date on prom night. :p

I saw where nobody knew what the song was to the touareg commercial yet, but does anyone know who I could contact to find it, as far as the VW company? I did a search, but couldn't come up with any good addresses where I could ask. They were all just pushing car sales. Would really, really appreciate it. I gotta have that song! :rolleyes:

I think it sounds little bit like Ben Harper??? somewhere I saw it mentioned that it was Arno Carstens a guy from South Africa, but that was a different commercial...

I wonder who that voice was???
I went to Amazon and listened to the first 30 seconds of Three of Us from Welcome to the Cruel World...it could sound a little bit like it...but unfotunately he is not singing in the first 30 seconds...I do have the cd...in Denmark...and right now I am in Hawaii...does anyone know if that is the one???
Yeahhhh. There doesn't appear to be anywhere to see it. Yet.

I think a lyric search is going to be the way to go on this one if anyone sees it again and can catch a few lyrics. ;) It sure doesn sound like anything that was just made for the ad. :D
Hey guys,

I came across this board because while doing a search for this Toureg commercial song. However, I think I found the answer. After doing a search on some of the lyrics, I believe the song is:

Title: Ariel Ramirez
Artist: Richard Buckner
Album: Since

Somebody might want to double check me, but I'm pretty sure this is the song. It is definitely a beautiful piece of music.
I think you are right, checking it out on a music buying site right now...I do have one cd with Buckner..."Bloomed"...that is a very nice song...(can almost imagine sitting on the porch with a cold...lemonade and hear the crickets singing...)
It is officially Richard Buckner ;-)...if you search for Richard Buckner Ariel Ramirez...his personal Web site comes up in the list saying that this song will be used in a VW commercial (clicking on the link though only takes you to a site with short musicclips on it, and not the info you saw in the search results)

Thanks CMB6s...
No problem! :D Such is the power of TIVO! It's nice to be able to listen to the song again and again until you understand the lyrics and can do a search for them. :rolleyes:
I see...my NBC does not go through very well...so it would be a long time before I heard it again...
For those who haven't yet, you can find the song on Richard Buckner's album here. (Link goes to available audio sample, track 3.)
You guys totally ROCK! I am so psyched to get that song. Will have to check out the rest of the album, too.

I got his album Bloomed, and just listened to it...it holds up the whole way through...
ok i want to know the song that's in the volkswagen touareg car commercial. it's a couple driving through a redwood or sequoia forest and then they stop and take a picture. they drive back and had the camera to an old woman who then jogs over to catch her tourist bus. can someone please tell me who sings this song????
