Target TV commercial jingle - could that be Eric singing?!


Recommended Posts


When I heard that commercial, I thought the same as you, so I just did a little research on the internet and came up with the answer.

Back in the 80's I was in Florida, laying on the beach listening to the radio and a song was played that really sparked my interest. After the song was played, the DJ announced the name of the song "You Don't Know", a new release by Eric Carmen! It was right around the time when MMLC was released. I had never heard the song in NY so I didn't even think that this DJ had made a blunder. When I got back to NY, I searched the record stores and found out that the artist was Scarlett and Black. It sounded like an Eric tune to me.

Thanks for that info on the song in the Target commercial. Cool video.

PS: Every time I see that commercial and hear the opening of the tune, the song that comes to mind right away is "For You Blue," a George Harrison track on the Beatles' Let It Be album (as if I needed to identify it!).
