Advert: IKEA – Wonderful Life
Music: Penny & The Quarters – You And Me
This charming IKEA TV ad, part of the Wonderful Everyday campaign, tells the story of one couple’s amazing life, and shows how the little things we do together can really be the big things that make life wonderful. The simple and catchy soundtrack also has a charming story. It’s a lost doo-wop demo recording from the early 1970s called You And Me by long-forgotten Columbus, Ohio group Penny & The Quarters. The song was discovered on a cassette in a yard sale and re-issued by archival record label The Numero Group, and later selected by actor Ryan Gosling to feature in his movie Blue Valentine. You and Me by Penny & The Quarters is available to download on iTunes.
