CNN advertisement reminds me of U2

I can't hear it well at work because I'm listening to a speaker with country musak on one side and cnn headline news on the other, but there is a cnn commerical that comes on cnn headline news (do you need a commerical for your own station?) anyway, I'd swear the music in the background is 'In God's Country.' It's Edge's guitar I can hear. Everytime I hear that stupid commerical about halfway through it in my head Bono starts singing , "Desert Rose ,dreamed I saw a desert rose, Dress torn in ribbons and in bows, etc."

and then it goes through my head all day and I have to find the JT CD and listen to it when I get in my car. It took me a couple of weeks to ever realize what triggered the song to go through my head all day. ARGH! (not that I don't like the song. I LOVE it! )

I know this is mostly pointless but this commerical has haunted me for months and I've meant to ask. I don't know if it really is that song or if over all the background noise I suffer with each day it just sounds like it. I don't generally watch ccn headline at home.

I wish I could wear headphones and play my cds while i sit here at my desk:(

If it is In God's Country I think its ironic how a giant whoremongering media channel chose that particular song.... (I don't like the american media btw.)
