I hope somebody can help me out. On Rogers channel 001, they have an ad for HBO Canada, which includes a song playing over it. I can't figure out who it is and it's driving me nuts. The voice sounds familiar, but I can figure out who it is. I've Googled the lyrics, which repeatedly mention komodo dragons, with no luck. Please help me hold on to my sanity.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Somebody posted the link to HBO at the start of the topic. It worked, they got back to me already.
The Song is called "The Link Between Us" by Jerome Benoit and Adrien Francoise. It's on two different websites that are music licensing companies that deal with all forms of media. You can download it if you're a member, so I'm waiting for my application to go through. Yes, I'm completely insane when it comes to music.
Should you want to hear the song, you can stream it on this site.
Thanks again for all of the suggestions.
Good day @discipline76,
Thank you for your post!
I totally understand the feeling of enjoying glimpses of a song without being able to pinpoint the title or artist.
I am not sure of the ad you are referring to, but I made some researches based on the information you provided us above.
I am thinking that the song is Echelon (It's My Way), but I am still uncertain.
I also found two other songs that contain "Komodo Dragon" but they are most likely not the ones used in the commercial in question.
Simply download the app (if you don't already have it) and whenever the ad is on try to see if Shazam recognizes it!
Your last resort would be to get in touch with HBO Canada directly to see if they would have more information
Hope this helps!
I have SoundHound on my iPhone. I'll check channel 1 today to see if that song is still playing. If so, I'll try to get SoundHound to clear up the mystery. SoundHound is an excellent piece of software. I got it a few years ago. At the time, it was free and had options which you pay for. I don't know if it's still a free download, though.
Update: Watched channel 1 for quite a long time, but did not see what you're looking for.
This is a total shot in the dark, but here's a link to a comment about a True Detective song: http://www.bustle.com/articles/75248-what-song-is-in-the-true-detective-season-2-trailer-the-hauntin...
The only reason I thought of it was because of the comment about Ballers and True Detective, so I did a search to see what came up.
Unfortunately, that was not the song, though it was a pretty good substitute. I've looked around and can't find mention of a combined trailer for the two shows. Seeing as I watched numerous times, I know I didn't imagine it.
This is a few lines I (sort of) remember.
"She rolls over me like a Komodo dragon charge" also a similar line that exchanges the word 'charge" with "fire"
"It hurts, baby knows it. Pain's real, baby likes it"
The second line in your post matches to the trailer for The Brink, which is another HBO production.
