It's cool, I am not really expecting anyone to, just hoping. I searched the lyrics on google and came up with nothing, so it's probably by some small up-and-coming band.

Could it be Wilco?
I've never listened to them so I wouldn't know.

It's not one of the Wilco songs, I'm a big fan of them and would recognize Jeff's voice anywhere.

However, I have found some stuff that suggests that it might be a song called Open Up the Light by Ben Ashley. Unfortunately, thus far I haven't been able to find a copy of the actual song anywhere on the Internet.

His voice sounded kind of like Liam Gallagher to me.

There's a compilation cd of VW ad songs, you should look it up on amazon and see if you can get it from a snippet.

Yeah, that sounds correct. Here's his myspace (http://www.myspace.com/benashleymusic) -- you could probably message him and ask. Also I guess he's the lead singer for these guys (http://www.myspace.com/theshore).
