Question What 80s song is on this commercial?

Okay, this is going to be kind of hard to explain because I heard no lyrics, but it's a synth pop song playing in the background of a T-Mobile phone commercial. Actually I am not even sure if it is T-Mobile, and I should probably wait to watch it again, but let's see if you can figure it out. It's definitely some cell phone commercial. I also have heard this song play on a commercial for VH1 several months ago. I think when "I Love the 80s: 3D" aired (if that helps any). The song reminds me of Yaz's "Don't Go" sound, but it's not that song. Oh, and if you have a keyboard, it sounds like this:



I worked on this sucker for like 20 minutes so someone better figure this out, LOL. It's still not exactly right because the real song isn't in this key, but it's close enough. Play it an octave higher because the song's pitch is high.

Hmm, I'll have to check that. I just came back to say that I saw it a bunch more times and it's Amp'd Mobile. Infact, there are at least 2 different Amp'd Mobile commercials with the song in the background.

I wish I could find this song but I don't have any downloading devices. I have napster but I can't get it to work. If it is Royksopp then it's a newer song, so I'm wrong about it being from the 80s. I thought I remember hearing it years ago and if it was shown on "I Love The 80s" it would have to be from that time, but maybe it was featured on another VH1 show like "I Love Toys."

I'd rather download this myself because I don't want to make a fool out of myself, but if I throw it out then maybe I'll get lucky and someone can confirm it for me. I'm thinking it sounds like Kraftwerk? They were kinda before my time but I think this song sounds like them. Or some other synth band from the 70s-80s. I just wish I could hear all these songs myself so I wouldn't have to ask...

Man, no one has come up with any more ideas in over a week? You guys suck.

Well, I haven't even seen these Amp'd Mobile commercials since the night I made this thread so apparently no one else has either. This will probably be a stumper for me until someday I enter the 20th century and can download songs. Or maybe I'll randomly come across the song somewhere else.

I’m back, ladies and lads! Coming back to this site is like stepping into a time machine, and I am here. for. it.

Moral of the story, here was the mysterious song that stumped me for 13 years. Amp’d Mobile (RIP) ads in 2006 is what played it. I don’t think it was any 80s song in particular.
