Q&A: Song in Cool TV commercial is 'Warwick Avenue' by Duffy

Song on ad for Cool TV by Duffy

Can you give me the name of the person who sings I'm Leaving You for the Last Time, Baby in the advertisement for the Cool TV station shown on WTTA?

The song is Warwick Avenue, sung by Duffy on the 2008 album Rockferry, according to Bobby Tarantino, co-founder of the all-music video television network The Cool TV.

The song describes a romantic breakup, with this chorus:

I'm leaving you for the last time, baby.

You think you're loving but you don't love me.

I've been confused, out of my mind lately.

You think you're loving but I want to be free.

Baby you've hurt me.

Duffy is Aimee Ann Duffy, 27, a Welsh singer-songwriter and occasional actress (she appeared in 2010's Patagonia).

Movie song is McLachlan's 'Fear'

In the movie Forces of Nature, in the hurricane scene, there was a song we couldn't find the name of. On a Cold Case episode called "Drawings," which was repeated recently on TNT, they used the same song. Can you find out what it is?

With help from the TNT and TV.com websites, among others, we were able to find that you are looking for a Sarah McLachlan song called Fear. (Also, the Cold Case episode is called "Wishing.")

McLachlan is quite a favorite for TV and movie soundtracks, where songs like Angel and I Will Remember You have often been used.

Busey sang in 'Buddy Holly'

Did Gary Busey do the actual singing for The Buddy Holly Story?

Busey, nominated for an Oscar for his performance as the rock 'n' roll legend, did all his singing for the 1978 movie, as did Don Stroud and Charles Martin Smith, playing fictionalized versions of members of the real-life Crickets.

Trumpet solo was 'Nature Boy'

In the movie Angel Eyes, with Jennifer Lopez and Jim Caviezel, there is a trumpet solo played by Caviezel's character. What is the name of the song, who plays it and is it on CD?

The song is the jazz/pop chestnut Nature Boy, famous also for renditions by Nat King Cole and others. The movie uses a recording by trumpeter Jon Hassell. It is on the Angel Eyes soundtrack, which is available on CD, and on a Hassell CD called Fascinoma. You can learn more about Hassell at his website, www.jonhassell.com.
