Heartbeats, written by Swedish duo The Knife and performed by José González.

It's also used in the Sony Bravia ad with the bouncy balls in San Francisco.

You can watch the Sony Bravia ad here.

And a spoof/rip-off by Tango here.

i'd like to add that you should really, really check out the Knife's version, too- very different but just as awesome.

Thanks all.

Just did (check out The Knife). I have a sense that I've heard this before - possibly clubbing? Not sure. It's good, but something about the cover by José González completely strikes a cord with me. Hm, the whole Veneer seems excellent.

The Knife's version can be heard at many clubs, as well as tracks their critically acclaimed Silent Shout. There's also a mash-up of the two versions out there.

The original kicks ass, I recomend checking out the video on YouTube too if you are into old school downhill skate boarding.
