Melbourne Carnival theme song déjà vu all over again...

Ever wondered who does that track being used as the theme for the Melbourne Spring Carnival ad campaign? It's Italian electronica outfit Planet Funk and their track from 2000 called Chase the Sun. The clip doesn't immediately bring horses to mind, being set in a mental asylum, but the lyrics are more suggestive of the majesty of the turf:
"I'm flying away
Running like the wind
Chased by the sun
Up spinning around
Circles in my mind
Sailing over ground."
But if it all sounds familiar, it is. The same track was first used to promote the carnival back in 2000.
