"I'm a believer" - Who is singing ?

Postby cymru56 » Sun Nov 04, 2007 10:07 am

There is a television advert in the UK for Vicks First Defence with the music featuring a female singing the Monkees old hit - " I'm a believer".
http://www.visit4info.com/preview-flash.cfm?vm=0&type=1&adid=50670.

Can anyone identify who it is singing ? It's really starting to frustrate me not knowing. I've even been in touch with the advertising agency which produced it but they haven't bothered replying.

I know Liz Phair has performed the song live, but this surely isn't her?

Sorry, dont have an answer. Wonder if the following site might turn up something eventually??

http://adtunes.com/

While your question doesn't seem to be answered there yet, you might pose the question in their forum??

I tried listening to clips of "I'm a Believer" on iTunes, but nothing sounded like the Vicks ad.

Google tells me that the singer on the Vicks ad is Dawn Landes. And while Google is a friend that cannot always be trusted, listening to a couple of Dawn's songs on her myspace page http://www.myspace.com/dawnlandes I think this could indeed be her.

yes, i know, there must be more usefull things for me to do :D

Thanks.
I'd just spotted this myself and was surprised. I have a few of Dawns songs and didn't recognise her as the same singer - "I'm a believer " having more of a country twang than her normal sound. But listening to more tracks I can hear it is her now.

The interesting thing is that there are references on the web to her maybe recording the full song for future release - did she just sing a snippet for the advert?- Strange!
