2014 Apple ‘The Song’ Commercial — What’s the Song?
Kudos to the marketing people at Apple, because their commercials have a serious way of tugging at our heartstrings. Their newest commercial shows a young girl going through some albums, until she comes across an old photo inside a record album, presumably of her grandmother. Her grandmother sings an a cappella version of a song. The girl then leaves a surprise gift for her grandmother on their kitchen table of a re-recording of the song with her own vocals on it as a kind of duet, paired with a few photos, allowing her to reminisce. It’s a touching commercial that centers around technology and its ability to bring two generations together.
The song that becomes the main focus of the commercial is an old-fashioned jazz number sung by a woman. So what’s the song? It’s called ‘Love Is Here to Stay.’ It was reportedly written for the 1938 movie ’The Goldwyn Follies' by George Gershwin, with lyrics by Ira Gershwin, and has been performed by numerous people throughout the years.
