Most people around me know that I’m a huge fan of the 40s, especially the films and the style. I just love the timeless clothing and I truly admire the classy vibe that women and men exuded. Those guys truly knew how to rock a suit, which is probably why till this day I just go mad crazy for a man wearing a suit (or 40s/50s inspired clothing.)
I’m a junkie for the fashion and the classic films of that era, but I also love the music of the 40s (big band + swing) and I love the soul music from the 50s. So when I saw the Acura ILX Commercial the other day, I decided it was time to finally look up that song.
The commercial came out months ago, so I’m sure you’ve seen it. But did you know who the song was by? Well if you didn’t, then let me tell you about a guy named Nick Waterhouse. He’s this soul & R&B singer that sings with a 50s inspired style, and his song “Say I Wanna Know” is featured in the Acura commercial.
It didn’t take me too long to find it, but now that I’ve found it…I can’t stop listening to it! I love just snapping my fingers and grooving the 50s sound. I usually hate when modern day artists try to pay homage or do music with an old school vibe, but Nick Waterhouse gets a stamp of approval; he knows exactly what he is doing.
I love the commercial too!
