What's the name of that song...

What’s the name of that song that is played on the new Visa commercial. It’s the one where the kid is running around the toy store grabbing toys. It’s also the song played in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure but I can’t remember the exact scene. I want to say it’s the part when he was dreaming about the clowns taking his bike.

It has kind of a carnival sound to it.

Anyone have any clue what I’m talking about?

It’s not a song — songs have words and are sung. Call it a piece of music.

It’s a music cue by Danny Elfman titled “Breakfast Machine”, from Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.

Let’s continue this in Cafe Society.

Thanks. I had actually gone to that exact page on Amazon after I had made the post. I didn’t think there was such thing as a Pee Wee soundtrack! I was leaning towards the Finale, but after further review they sound the same.

On a download site which shall remain nameless, it’s under the name Pee Wee’s Big Adventure Main Theme

Don’t forget Pee-wee’s little hyphen. :slight_smile:

I’m sure Paul Reubens is tired of jokes about his little hyphen.

Coindentially, this song is also being used in an ad for a contest which is a cross-promotion between Nickelodeon and the Fox/Walden feature Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium. Kind of funny, since they both involve toys.
