Where Is My Mind Rework

So I’m just hanging out and relaxing on a cold Sunday afternoon, and I hear this commercial come on the tv from the other room:

And within seconds, I realize the song they’re playing is an orchestral arrangement of “Where Is My Mind?” by Pixies.  This isn’t the first time I heard companies rework this particular song to promote their products, but I think this particular arrangement is powerful and beautiful.  One of the many things I love about music is that a song can be taken and be transformed to transpire another emotion or feeling.  Just by changing the arrangement, the instruments used, and the tempo, the same song can take us on a different journey.

Here’s the original version of “Where Is My Mind?”:
