She's Got Me Dancing

Song: She's Got Me Dancing
Artist: Tommy Sparks
Album: Tommy Sparks

One of my favorite things about life is the way music can jump into your lap anytime, anywhere, and then create new moments for you in the future. I recently heard this infectious song at work as used in a sizzle reel and could not get it out of my head. I did some looking and found out it was Sweden's Tommy Sparks, a new wave artist. It turns out the song was featured in an iPod ad... and knowing that it sounds JUST like something in an iPod ad. Oh well. Haven't listened to the whole new record yet, but this song is great.

Tommy Sparks is a fusion/pop/alternative musician born in Stockholm, Sweden who currently lives in Kilburn, United Kingdom. He is known for his songs "She's Got Me Dancing" and "I'm a Rope".
