Who is Rosi Golan?

Rosi Golan is an Israeli born singer songwriter who has made many stops in her travels, including Germany, Paris, and finally ending up in Los Angeles at the age of nine, where she grew up. During her travels, she not only managed to hone her infectiously melodic songwriting, but also learned to speak three languages fluently: French, Hebrew and English.

Rosi Golan is the sensuous voice behind the very popular TV commercial for State Street Global Advisors. You know...the one with the cute dogs and the buried treasure. Have a look.



Many have asked if the song in that commercial is available in it's full length, and for now according to Rosi the answer is...well, no...at least not yet. We need not worry 'bout that anyway, because Rosi is everywhere, and thankfully so. If you would like to hear or download a short uncut version of the Buried Treasure theme song here is the link from the State Street website. Buried Treasure

Buried treasure indeed. For more Rosi, check out her debut CD (2008), The Drifter and the Gypsy. An 11-song record that has already yielded 7 placements on such shows as One Tree Hill (“Come Around”, “Been A Long Day” and “Hazy”), Private Practice (“Lullaby”) and Ghost Whisperer (“Come Around”). Her song “Shine” is the anthem for the international Pantene campaign and “C’est L’amour” is currently licensed to Chicco Clothing with ads in Italy, Portugal and Sweden. You can also look for Rosi in an ad campaign this Christmas from J.C Penny.

Rosi, a Kobalt Music writer, has co-written numerous songs for other artists, including “Let Me Out”, a single from Ben’s Brother debut CD (EMI/Virgin). The song was featured on Grey’s Anatomy and nominated for the prestigious Ivor Novello songwriting award for Best Song.

Rosi has recently toured with William Fitzsimmons (who duets with her on “Hazy”) as well as Greg Laswell, Ari Hest and Jay Nash. She's been featured in Billboard Magazine and Performing Songwriter and her song “Think of Me” was the recipient of the ASCAP’s first Robert Allen Award for songwriting.

Here is the version of HAZY, featuring William Fitzsimmons...

It’s a pretty simple song.

VERSE - G-Em-C-D...repeat, then...C-D-C-D
REFRAIN - G-D-Em-C 3 times, then at "oh" ...Am-C, then at humming...G-C-G-C
STRUMMING PATTERN - down, up, up, down, up, up, down, up, down

Capo 5

INTRO: G-D-Em-C

VERSE:

G.............Em.......C...............D
I watched you sleeping quietly in my bed

G.............Em................C...................................D
You don’t know this now, but there’s some things that need to be said

C..................D
It’s all that I can hear

C.......................D
It’s more than I can bear

REFRAIN:

G...........D.................Em
What if I fall, and hurt myself?

..........C.................G
Would you know how to fix me?

D................Em
What if I went and lost myself?

......................C
Would you know where to find me?

G...........D..........Em......................C
If I forgot who I am, would you please remind me?

Am..............C
Oh, cause without you things go hazy

G-C-G-C
Humming

Repeats again with the guy singing.
Then with both singing the refrain to end the song.

It’s a very awesome song and great duet song. Enjoy :)

ABOUT THE SHOW

With unprecedented access, CNBC pulls back the curtain on Coca-Cola, the most recognizable brand on the planet. In an original one-hour documentary, "Coca-Cola: The Real Story Behind the Real Thing," CNBC's Melissa Lee reveals never-before-seen labs, secret archives and high-tech product testing. Cameras follow Coke's urgent campaign to reinvent itself after years of losing ground to arch-rival Pepsi in the race to develop new, blockbuster beverages. Meet the men and women whose mission it is to put the buzz back in the bottles and see how Coke gets its drinks into the mouths of people in the farthest corners of the globe. From the production line to "Cola Wars," discover the secret that makes Coke pop.

Coke’s Innovation Lab

People say “yes” to coke more than a billion times each day around the globe. But for Coke, that’s not enough. We visit Coca-Cola’s innovation lab --- a war room where Coke plots how to get you to buy more and buy it more often.

An American Classic

Perhaps no product is more embedded in the history of American culture than Coca-Cola. The classic curvy shape of a bottle of Coke is recognized around the globe. A visit to the company’s archives is a lesson in how powerful marketing can turn something as simple as soda into an icon.

The Pepsi Challenge

In the early 1980’s Coca-Cola began an epic battle with Pepsi. The Pepsi Challenge was all too real. Coke conducted its own taste tests and the order was given to change Coke’s 99-year old formula – resulting in one of the great blunders in American business.

Bottlers

The bottlers do something the Coca-Cola company doesn’t do: make Coca-Cola. Not only do the bottlers make the secret blend of ingredients that give Coke its flavor, but they also distribute the entire line of Coke beverages to retailers.
