California Dreaming, written by John Phillips/Michelle Phillips in 1966 (?) and first recorded by Barry McGuire. It was a famous ht record for The Mamas and the Papas.

The Saab 9-3 advert uses Bobby Womack's 1969 cover version of that song.

yet more trawling :roll: this version was apparently released on 1998 film soundtrack 'why do fools fall in love', on listening to a snippet it sounds just like the saab ad.. curiously enough on the label 'Rhino Records' (i kid you not).. and will be re-released this june by MoS on a jazz/chill compilation. Thats all i can find! ! !

as for finding the whole ad.. umm..

Does anybody know the electronic track in the UK saab 93 ad?! The ad is a silver saab driving round, the background is just black and the track sounds aphex twin/autetre style music, has been racking my brain!
Thanks
