Jacobs TV Ad Music 2016 – Band and singers info for the latest ‘Crackin’ Jacobs Flatbreads advert.
Song Title: Don’t Leave Me This Way.
Artist/Singers: The Communards (Cover).
Although this track was originally recorded in 1975 by the American R&B/Soul group Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and covered a year later by solo vocalist Thelma Houston, the version we hear performed in this commercial appears to use the music from The Communards more recent up-tempo cover.
Released in 1986, The Communards single featured vocals from Jimmy Somerville and guest singer Sarah Jane Morris. The track reached number 1 on the UK singles chart, where it stayed for four weeks.
The video, which was added to Jacob’s YouTube page on the 31st of May, 2016, shows the old cliche formula of a redheaded lady duetting with a vocally challenged packet of salt & pepper Flatbreads.
