AT&T – The Crane Wife 3, The Decemberists

A great backdrop to this Olympic AT&T commercial, The Crane Wife 3 builds to a great bass riff as AT&T touts its connectivity solutions for the 2008 Olympics.

Hailing from Portland, The Decemberists are a successful indie band. Primary songwriter, Colin Meloy, drew inspiration from an interesting source: a Japanese folk tale, The Crane Wife. It wasn’t until their aptly named album The Crane Wife that they attempted to capture that muse in their music.
