The new iPod Nano commercial song

Sep 5, 2010 - 6 Comments

If you’ve seen the new iPod Nano commercial featuring the newly released touch screen iPod Nano, you’ve heard the new song playing in the background. Apple commercials have a certain power to them, they typically propel a song into popularity rather quickly and people start asking what song is playing in the latest Apple commercial.

What song is playing in the new iPod Nano commercial?

The song is called “Short skirt, long jacket” by Cake.

You can listen to the full song below via YouTube:

What I think is interesting about Apple choosing this song is that it’s not a new song, it’s been out since 2007. Typically Apple will feature songs in their commercials that are new and from somewhat obscure bands, which then propels them into stardom. This is an older song from a well known band, but I’m sure the song will gain in popularity anyway.

You can also check out the new iPod touch commercial song and the iPad commercial song. You can always find out what song is playing by using the Shazam app, it’s quick and free.

    Yeah I hope they can propel that hit from 2001 into the spotlight. Oh wait, it was in the spotlight…. in 2001.

    Cake Rocks though, good to hear them on it.

    They totally screwed up on that comercial. The song is by cake but they advertise it as being by The Rifles a british band. FAIL!!

      They do not advertise it as being The Rifles. They are just playing a few different songs on the new nano and that is the last one they show.

    Comfort Eagle, the album from Cake, is out from 2001.

    You probably saw the youtube video date, which is referred to the video, not to the song.

    It’s already popular as the theme tune to ‘Chuck’ the tv series!
