Whose the band that sings "Get That Feeling"?

Not sure if thats the title but the song is used in alot of Buick commercials right now; one of the commericals has Shaq in it and the song starts playing toward the end. It also in the song, it says "I get a feeling that I never never never felt before"?

Its Etta James that is singing the spot you are refering to, but this is the song from Flo Rida...

And here is Etta and the song it was sampled from heart

You said its Etta singing the spot; I wonder is there a version of her singing it fast like that or did they just speed up in the studio??? Because in the 2nd video where you show the song its sampled from its a lot slower and even sounds like in a lower key.

Pretty sure it was tweaked in the studio a bit, but i bet there is a better clip which sounds more like the sample.. I didnt go looking through all the clips, I was in a hurry and just picked one so you could see where it came from.. smile

Yea, thanks anyway. When I have some spare time, I'm going to see if I can find her singing a fast version. When I heard it in Florida's song, I thought it (the chorus loop) was something brand new, just written. lol

Even found this further info:

"James's continuing relevance was affirmed in 2011 when the Swedish DJ Avicii achieved substantial chart success with the song "Levels", which samples her 1962 song, "Something's Got a Hold On Me". "Levels" was then used by rapper Flo Rida in his hit 2011 single "Good Feeling." Both artists issued statements of condolence on James's death."

"Levels" (stylized as "LE7ELS") is a song by Swedish house producer and DJ Avicii. It was released on October 28, 2011. The song was written by Avicii and Ash Pournouri, and contains a vocal sample from the 1962 gospel-inspired "Something's Got a Hold on Me" by Etta James, as written by Leroy Kirkland, Pearl Woods and James. "Levels" peaked at number one in Sweden and on the Dance music charts in United States, and became a top ten hit in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland and United Kingdom.[1]

Flo Rida's track "Good Feeling" was primarily influenced by "Levels", which became a worldwide hit in late 2011.

Cool to see the history on this and music crossing countries
