What’s the name of the song used in the Saint Agur TV advert?
The track used in the Saint Agur cheese commercial is called ‘Killing Me Softly with His Song’ and was most famously a hit single for Roberta Flack in 1973 and The Fugees in 1995.
Often referred to by the shorter title of ‘Killing Me Softly’, the song has been covered over the years by many different singers from around the world.
We’re not sure who’s providing the vocals for the version used in the Saint Agur ad, but it doesn’t sound like Fugees singer Lauryn Hill or the Roberta Flack studio recording.
Though the advert broadcast in the UK sees the actors speaking in English, as you’ll notice from the above video, the commercial has previously been broadcast in other countries with different languages dubbed in.
Originating from the Auvergne region of France, Saint Agur is a soft blue cheese made from pasteurized cow’s milk.
