What is the song featured in this Norwegian cruise ad?
April 28, 2004 9:40 PM   Subscribe

Over the past few months, I have occasionally seen a commercial for a vacation cruise. I can't recall the name of the cruise, but Norwegian fiords are featured prominently. What really has my interest is the song featured in the ad. It's a classic example of trying to remember a song, but not being able to, and it's driving me crazy. The tune has an ethereal quality to it, and the singer is female. If anyone has even the vaguest idea of what I'm talking about, please end my suffering, and tell me who sings the damn song!

Please.

Since you mentioned fjords, I guessed Holland America, googled "holland america commercial song" and got "Edge of the Ocean" by Ivy as the first hit. I haven't seen the commercial but I know the song, and I believe it fits your description.

Is it "edge of the ocean" by Ivy?

It was used in a Holland America Ad.

Amazon has a short audio snippet and a free mp3 download of it.

For whatever reason, I never could remember the name of the cruise, so thanks for the heads up.
