Aline Morales Remix of Ontario's "There's No Place Like This"



I just saw this new Ontario tourism ad featuring percussionist and composer Aline Morales that has a great arrangement of "There's No Place Like This." I've blogged about provincial tourism ads earlier in the year, including an Ontario ad that ran heavily during the Winter Olympics that also used "There's No Place Like This."

I'd love to hear what she could do with Foodland Ontario's "Good Thing Grow in Ontario".

Yes! I've been thinking the same thing. I love this ad and Aline Morales. It's a brilliant arrangement and performance.

I think the commercial sucks big time. You mean to say that they couldn't find another Canadian musician with some real talent; someone who's been around and paid their dues with a lifetime of dedication to their craft. C'mon really; tippity-tap on a snare?...and pitch that's close, but no cigar. My kid demonstrated as much talent when she was two.

My only distaste for all these versions of this ad is that NEVER ONCE IN ANY OF THEM DO YOU HEAR THE WORD: "ONTARIO"
It beats me every time I hear different versions - and this version is guddddddd!

BTW - If you need the word "Ontario" to be in the song, you can't afford to visit us. That's part of the charm.

love it but does anybody know where that suspended bridge over the river is?

It's hard to tell in the commercial, but it looks like the Eagle Canyon bridge near Thunder Bay. It would make sense to feature it, since it's the longest foot suspension bridge in Canada. Panoramio photo

I think so too. The bridge is SCARY to walk across. Great song. Catchy!
