Trivago ad's '17,000km' song with 'Feel It' lyric finally released on streaming music services


Robert Burian's song "17,000km" from that very cool Trivago "virtual reality" ad has finally been released to Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming music services.

Do you know what that Trivago ad looks like it takes virtual reality to the next level, helping a guy looking for the ideal hotel to experience it as it if were real?

We see video of his pretty and handsome friends partying, having relaxing massages, swimming in the pool and elsewhere, and the accompanying track is very upbeat and bouncy.

The song has captured the imagination of many, with various sites featuring people wondering where to hear the song in full; the ISpotTV site is an example, as is the YouTube comments section of the Trivago ad and other places online.

Indeed, ISpotTV mistakenly says "Although this YouTube videos description says the music to this ad is ‘17,000 km’ by Robert Burian, we actually believe the song to be ‘Feel It’ by EG3BEATS, which was released for download on iTunes and Amazon earlier this year. If you’re in any doubt, please listen to a preview of the track to see for yourself."

However, as Burian said in an emai to mel, this song is an original production using the same purchasable "Feel it" lyric, but it's original – I'll have more on this here shortly. 

And yes, if you listen to the EG3BEATS version, (embedded at the end of this article) you can hear "you know you can feel it" lyric, which is what caused confusion out there and caused people to mistakenly think the songs were connected, but until just a couple of days ago, the only way to hear Robert Burian's version called 17,000km was via the Trivago ad, which is embedded below.

Now, trying to find Burian's defintely superior version of this song seemed impossible, but as he has a website and an email address, I emailed him a few weeks ago to ask.

This morning I was very surprised and pleased to hear back from Burian, who informed me that, "The song is avaiblale on all streaming services. Here is the link to Spotify for example."

As an Apple Music user, I immediately typed "17,000km" into the search box, and there was Burian's version!!

Here's the Apple Music link for those who are subscribers. You can find it on all major streaming services, including Google Play Music, Deezer and others, so just search for 17,000km and you should find it!

Over at the YouTube page for the Trivago ad, we see the following info:

Idea, script and creative lead: Jonathon Laing.
Creative producer: Sojo Yang.
Motion designer: Matthias Cieschinger.
Music: “17,000 km” by Robert Burian.

Here's the ad you should all know well if you watch any TV!

Here are the words to the commercial are as follows, from the Popisms website: 

All right Trivago, find me a hotel somewhere in Thailand where I can wake up with a view of the ocean.

Awesome! And what about a pool for me and my friends? OK, we have to do some sailing, too! Wait a minute, what about a hiking trail? Oh, and a massage!

A nice restaurant. And Trivago, my friends love to party. Yes, this is my ideal hotel. Thanks, Trivago!

You know you can feel it
You know you can feel it
You know you can feel it
You know you can feel it

For those interested in the different EG3BEATS song, made by a different group using the same "Feel it" lyric, but is in no way connected to Robert Burian's 17,000km song, it's below and like 17,000km is a cool song in its own right:

This 45-second version seems to come from the official EG3BEATS YouTube account and shows the streaming services it is available on:
