What song is this?
There is a song I keep hearing bits of, but never in a context where I can find out the artist or title...

I think the original recording was a female singer. It has been used in a commercial with a male re-recording, though.

I think it is recent, probably the last five years.

I *think* the opening line is "I'm a brand new soul in a great big world..." dah-dah-DAH-dah dah-dah-DAH-dah dah-dah-dah.

I'm woefully ignorant of pop music in the last ten years, so I'm hoping this is an easy one for everybody... the singer (both female and male) has a sort of soulful, sensitive sound to the voice.

It was an itunes/ipod ad, prob searchable on youtube. the original singer was an Israeli females. the song drove me nuts. that's all I know
