      The baileys one with zero gravity? Erm, not sure but I remember thinking &#39;ooh, I wonder what this is&#39; when I saw it yesterday, but I can&#39;t think how it goes now. Mainly because I&#39;m listening to Lou Reed I expect /iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/oooh.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''>

          Well, the Bailey&#39;s one with zero gravity uses Minnie Riperton&#39;s &#39;Les Fleurs&#39; but I&#39;m pretty sure that doesn&#39;t sound like James Last, so must be another Baileys ad you mean...

          Either that, or there&#39;s a James Last &#39;non stop dancing&#39; LP I desparately need to find...

            No, you&#39;re right it is either the Minne Ripperton or the Ramsey Lewis - which from recollection are one and the same, apart from MR&#39;s vocal obviously.

              No I think it&#39;s a retake on it. Sounds different to me, or maybe someone just put it through some filters - I only saw it once and it&#39;s a pretty shite ad. Still, time to take the higher ground and say it&#39;s always nice to hear good sources on TV&#33;

                ah yes - now I remember actually recognizing what it was and making a mental note to post something about it on here, but having David Bowie and Mick Ronson going &#39;ooh wah&#39; in my ear whilst writing the reply reply last night put me right off

                  Yup, that&#39;s the one. J*S*T*A*R*S are my mate Sim Lister &amp; Steve Cobby from Fila Brazillia - I work part-time for their label 23 Recordings as press &amp; promo bod. I think it&#39;s hilarious that John Lewis are using a track called &quot;Loose Nuke Threat&quot; to promote their spring collection&#33;

                    Yeah, I thought that version of Les Fleurs sounded a bit shonky, so presumed it must have been 4 Hero&#39;s remake. Which I&#39;ve not got, so can&#39;t compare but I remember it sounding really close apart from a wee drum&#39;n&#39;bass excursion in the middle...

                      I&#39;ve only seen the advert once but seem to remember that it was &#39;Les Fleur&#39; but a redone version (probably based on 4Heros version)

                        thanks for the info guys, the baileys ad sounded a bit lastesque to me but maybe it was late at night and i&#39;d had a few too many or i may have left non stop dancing 12 playing on the turntable at the same time as the add was being screened (well that&#39;s my excuse.)

                            Depends which one you mean - the Dove deodorant ad uses &#39;Hot Pants&#39; by Alan Parker and Alan Hawkshaw, from the KPM LP &#39;Flute For Moderns&#39; (and played by Harold MacNair and the various members of Blue Mink&#33
