What song is in this KFC ad?

"Like an ice cold hand, without a glove..."
I've searched for this and it turns up nowt. There's KFC ad running in the UK now which features a feckin' superb rare groove soul track.
The song is sweet, I'd guess late 60's or early 70's, Motown or Philly probably, and is set to a scene with a young man, choosing his 99pence sandwich, then throwing the penny change into the fountain with an unspoken wish.

As his dream girl appears, the hook line hits: "What do I wish, for on a clou-dy day..."

What is it called?

Ooh, and who is it by? (",)

Hm. Is this link any help? The Frank Wilson song maybe?

Have you tried Shazam?

Response by poster: So far, no dice. The Frank Wilson connection is a 'maybe yes/maybe no' - just not enough to settle it. And I am registering with Shazam - thanks for that, quiet!

Shazam hasn't failed me yet. I'd be interested to hear what your experience with it is

Response by poster: I got a correct response in my Big Brother NG - it's the Chi-Lites, 1969: What Do I Wish For.


But there was another guess for the Frank Wilson song.
