At Your Service

I've had about ten hits on my statcounter this afternoon from people searching for the song played on the new J. C. Penney's Christmas commercial. It's called "All That I Want" by The Weepies (click here for their website.).

You're welcome.

All That I Want
Words and music by Deb Talan and Steve Tannen

Out in the harbor
The ships come in, it's Christmastime
The kids all holler carols 'cross the water
Stars that shine
All that I want, all that I want

Above the rooftops
The full moon dips its golden spoon
I wait on clip-clops, deer might fly
Why not? I met you
All that I want, all that I want


And when the night is falling
Down the sky at midnight
Another year is stalling
Far away a good bye, good night
All that I want., all that I want, all that I want


So small a turning
The world grows older every day
An ache, a yearning
Soften when I hear you say
All that I want, all that I want


And when the cold wind's blowing
Snow drifts through the pine trees
In houses lights are glowing
Likewise in your eyes that find me here
With all that I want.


Out in the harbor
The ships come in, it's Christmastime
It's Christmastime
It's Christmastime.

I also found this interesting site all about music in advertising.

You can also get a free, Weepies-okayed, high-quality live recording of the song here:

But if you like the song, you really should buy their CDs. You won't be sorry!

Laurie on Demand. You don't even have to ask for it and she delivers.

So what do you for all of those other *explicit* hits you get?

Grimm - I do my best to please my readers...except for the rectal thermometer fetishists. Have to draw the line somewhere.
