Default Circus Promo Video

Hey guys, I have been working pretty hard here in Iceland making a circus where none has been before. We just made our second show at it was wildly successful....3400 people came which is 4% of the population of Reykjavik.
I got it shot excellently by pros and they are making a DVD and a 3 minute promo clip for us.
My problem is that they need music for the promo clip and I am retarded.

suggestions for a family circus tune? I am so fine with cheese!

Try listening to some Yma Sumac on youtube.
Quincy Jones, Soul Bossa Nova is a classic that's also been used too much, but still remains a great peice of music.
It's the Austin Powers theme.

Default at last, off telephone connection, on cable, can help.

OK Lee
What are you after atmosphere wise, busy/jolly? Languid and building with crescendo?

I'd go for something as original as possible.

electric cambodia
is an album compiled from cassettes of 60's cambodian rock and roll before pol pot went and murdered all performers and artists and such.
I heard a song from this album on the radio last week and had to stop the car and get a pen and wait till they announced who it was.
Happiest god-damn piece of music I've heard in ages, really infectious.

I've been in the sticks on a telephone connection that takes 10 mins just to open my email and I share the connection with two others and it's their house.

But I'm elsewhere at present.

The band who put the compolation together is called dengue fever.

I'll try to find the song for you, I've been through Dengues catalouge haven't found it yet. [because it's not there]

If you don't already know try 'grooveshark.com' for looking stuff up.

I'll get back to you. If you don't use it I will. Have to find it first but it would be perfect for you.

....still looking, heard some of it, kinda usual asian but this one song was the bomb.
