It's not a secret nor a new find Laughing

but as much as Vangelis dismissed commercialization of his music he did contribute to quite a few adverts, some for ethical causes (animal welfare, environment) but some were well, straight out commercials like this Hugh Hudson directed Fiat advert with Vangelis' rendition of Puccini's Figaro Laughing

The controversial animal rights anti fur campaign from 1985 also directed by David Bailey banned for a while for being "too strong" at the time....

In 1980 Ridley Scott teams with Vangelis for this Chanel N°5 "Invitation Au Rêve" commercial.

Rossini Rolling Eyes

I have specially liked the music for the British Rail Corporate advert.

Any chance to get this music, even though in mp3?

True, Rossini's Barber it is, I guess I am loosing my multitasking abilities Laughing

The British Rail has voice over very poor background sound, there is nothing to remove vocals successfully then restore the hardly audible audio.
These video clips are that will ever be, meanwhile here is a more decent version of the Fiat Figaro:

Thanks, Dan. I've enjoyed Smile

These are adverts for a Japanese sports car produced by Mazda, RX-7 (FC).



Since they were made in the 1980s, the music was performed not by Vangelis but by The New American Orchestra.

Glad you enjoyed these, they were discovered by hard core fans over the years and not everybody is aware of Vangelis' advertising work.

The MAzda RX-7 is interesting, I assume the music is from the cover version of Blade Runner by the New American Orchestra, an album I never got or heard, I was too annoyed with Vangelis for not releasing the OST at the time...

I own The New American Orchestra version as CD Embarassed Since I couldn't get the OST at that time, I was diverted by it Laughing

I also had the New American Orchestra version of the OST, copied into a C-60 chromium casette (oh my God, I'm getting old...). It was my first exposure to Vangelis music. Late 80s. Shortly after listening to the tape I bought my third CD: Themes, by Vangelis.

(The first one was Bach's Tocatta & Fuge, and the second Jarre's Live. A very good starting for a CD player, indeed Rolling Eyes Laughing Cool )
