I recently wrote about Kohl’s new holiday ad featuring a unique voice singing the soundtrack of the commercial. Here is the post… and now for the ad:
As noted in my post, the singer is Ane Brun. Such a lovely voice with the qualities of Dolly Parton’s. Speaking of Dolly, is she America’s long-time sweetheart or what?
Back to the song, and as I’ve said before, I love doing research. But I’m almost embarrassed to say I missed a key fact with this song, “From Me to You.” As comments started rolling in for the blog post, it was pointed out that the song is originally performed by The Beatles. What!? How did I miss that? But smart folks out there were on top of it. So here is the Beatles original recording of the song, “From Me to You.”
Obviously there’s no sound quite like the Beatles. They released the song in the early 60s. A few covers in the following decades include Bobby McFerrin…
And check out Kids Incorporated performing it in classic 80s style…
How do you feel about the use of Ane’s version of the song for the Kohl’s commercial? Should they have tried any of these earlier versions?
Thanks for stopping by!
