When watching the new Vodafone spot on an Italian TV channel, I am immediately compelled to listen to its soundtrack again. The music chosen for the advert is an evergreen, the Leningrad Cowboys' ironic and affecting rendition of "Happy together", one of many cover versions of this track, and certainly one of the most distinctive. This is an original choice of music and a long way from the soundtracks used in the past (with undoubted success) by Vodafone, but capable of being easily remembered by the public.
And that's when I discovered this band from Finland - the Leningrad Cowboys. This instrumental rock and roll band has the biggest 'big-hair' in the world. It's very fun and appeared in some American movies. You can find more about them by visiting their website.
