I wasn't paying close attention, but I swear I just heard DC/PF version of "Sunshine" used in a 7 Up commercial. I was watching the Apprentice. Anyone else hear that?

You are right Very Happy I did not see it myself. But I received an email from another Board I am on and one of the member's also saw it. They called it the "I've got the sunshine in my hands" song.

LOL! YES! I was just singing along thoughtlessly and then realized what I was singing. How fun!

It's definitely "Sunshine", but it's not the PF version. Very close, but it was re-recorded. Very Happy

I Absolutely agree with Joey. Its definetly the Partridge Family version. I was sitting here @ the puter & the tv was on in the background. As soon as the commercial came on i whipped my head around so fast i almost broke my neck! LOL Laughing

Loved it and if it wasn't the PF it was very close. Close enough for me to think of the PF.

I caught the commercial during "The Apprentice" last night - could not believe what I was hearing!!!!! I've always liked that song and thought it would have been a big hit! Now 33 years later.......

As for the version - I will take a closer listen next time, but it sounded like the PF to me!! Wow - it made my whole night! LOL!

Joey, don't beg -- it's so unseamly! Laughing Laughing

Hmmm -- I saw the commercial about 4 times last night. Each time listening I could have sworn it was NOT David singing. The arrangement was pretty much exact, but it didn't sound like David to me. Let's all listen again.

Maybe I am wrong?! Nah! I'm never wrong! (Well, once I thought I was wrong, but I was mistaken.) Confused Confused Wink

I was on the fence about whether or not it was DC. By the time I realized what I was hearing, it was too late to listen closely. But if it isn't him, it's a close match, I must say.

I would not be surprised if they opted to re-record it rather than jump through all the hoops of clearing rights to a sound recording. It's much easier and cheaper just to clear the rights from the songwriter/publisher, and then do a new recording.
