Can anyone identify the song being used in the TV trailer for "The Weatherman"?

The "la la la la la la lala lala" is stuck in my head. I think there's also a lyric that goes "When I'm wrong I'm wrong."

That would be "The Passenger" by Iggy Pop, track 10

See also this thread at adtunes (which is the best place to go for questions like this).

Best answer: Iggy Pop - The Passenger

they also seem to have been running it with a Ben Kweller track as well -- In Other Words which is a great tune.

There's a Siouxsie and the Banshees cover of the Passenger; are we sure it's not that version? (I haven't heard the original, so I wouldn't know.)

Yes, we're sure. Siouxsie's is a good cover, but this is definitely the original.

Nice to see Iggy making some licensing bucks in his declining years...

The Ben Kweller song is "Falling". It's lovely.

I realize your question is answered, but perhaps someone will stumble on this question trying to find the other la la la la la song.
