Microsoft had an impressive week with its big Surface Studio announcement on Wednesday. Not only is the new creative-focused PC an exciting innovation from the Surface team, but its introduction video also stirred a lot of emotion.
If you found yourself humming the 'Pure Imagination' song from that ad, you are not alone.
Stephanie Tarling did the singing on 'Pure Imagination,' but the song is originally known from the 1971 movie Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Gene Wilder, who recently passed, originally sung the tune delighting many children and setting the song in stone for years.
Phew, I hate secrets! So glad I can share now, hope you enjoy! #PureImagination #MicrosoftSurfaceStudio #microsoft https://t.co/QoZSMS7DSrPhew, I hate secrets!

Tarling's take was arranged and produced by Nathan Lanier, "a composer for film and television best known for his music for Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn" and who also "composed and produced the track music to Microsoft's first Super Bowl commercial."
Luckily for you, the Surface Studio cover of the song is now available for free on Band Camp. So, grab it and add it to your Groove Music collection on OneDrive so you can listen to it whenever you want.
