Question ID: 786627
There was an ad campaign on ESPN a couple of years ago during either
the women's NCAA basketball season, or the WNBA season.  They played a
very popular song from the 1970s in the background of one of their
ads.  It was a disco-ish song, and in the same neighborhood as Sister
Sledge's "We Are Family."  I remember thinking to myself, "I really
like that song.  I need to download it."  But I forgot to write it
down, and now I've forgotten the title.  Female singers.  Upbeat.  I
have no recollection of lyrics or melody.  Can someone help me figure
out the title of this song and the group that sang it?

Greetings Birty74,

While it's a stretch to locate the exact song with no lyric clues,
your memory may be stirred while reading the many song titles used by


"I remember the "lose my breath song" that Phoenix used in it's little
commercial...And then there is the song "ladylike" by storm Large that
I used in my pseudo WNBA ad, that IMO is about the best song to
represent the women in this league..I remember Storm fans saying they
used the Destiny Child song "Survivor" as well."

"'One Girl Revolution' by Superchick."

There are others mentioned as well.

Do you recall any lyrics at all? If one of the listed songs at the
above site turns out to be the one you are looking for, please let me
know via the GA Clarification feature.

Best regards,

I checked that site.  I found nothing resembling the song that I
remember.  It was a hit on the radio for sure.  Late 70s
(perhaps...PERHAPS early 80s).  I know this is a tough question.  It
may be that my only chance of remembering it is to peruse top 40 lists
from the late 70s/early 80s.

Thanks for trying.

My pleasure. I hope another Researcher will be able to pinpoint the title for you.

If you really want the song, you may want to raise the price. It would
take a lot of work for a researcher to "peruse top 40 lists
from the late 70s/early 80s."

Please check out these two and let me know if one of them is the song
you remember. Both songs were recorded by 'The Pointer Sisters':

Neither of those are it.  I know it's not the Pointer Sisters.

I never requested someone to peruse top 40 lists.  I can do that on my
own, and have a better chance of locating the song than someone else,
as I think the title might pop out at me.

I was hoping I'd stumble upon someone who actually remembered the ad
campaign.  That was my only hope of getting someone else to give me
the title.
