This song's identity has haunted me for years. I've searched all over the Internet (I even looked online this morning with my girlfriend and we came up with nothing) and found some possibilities, but nothing that was the right song.


This is what I know (or think I know):

- Kind of a slow, classic rock groove song with almost a "Footloose" guitar riff.

- Male singer.

- Song was featured in an 80's or early 90's beer commercial (I think it might have been Bud Light, but I'm not sure). A man walked towards a woman in a bar/diner/train car or the woman walked towards the man?


Sound familiar? If anyone can give me a title and/or the band's name (or even possibilities), it'd be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks!

Didn't Eric Clapton sing "After Midnight" for beer commercials back around then?

Nah wasn't Clapton, I got the riff in my head right now clear as day, but Footloose is stopping me from getting to the lyrics. It's a commonly played song, I'm guessing mid 70's, so I am going to kick my self in the ass when someone mentions it.

Yeah, "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" was used for Michelob ad, I think?

You could also be talking about Steve Winwood's DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE NIGHT CAN DO. It was used in a beer commercial some years back. I seem to remember a few other songs by him being used by Budweiser as well back in the early to mid eighties.

The song is "Funk #49" by The James Gang (Many thanks to Dr. U).

Thanks to all who replied to my question.

Ah, a lifelong quest has ended. Finally.
