What is the name of the tune in the Marks and Spencers TV advert?

Maybe it doesn’t have a name – maybe it’s been recorded just for the advert. It sounds like an electric guitar and it’s the type of stuff played by Eric Clapton. It’s a really haunting and beautiful piece of music. Does anyone know if it can be downloaded?
I can’t believe how many different answers I am getting to this question. The favourite seems to be ‘Samba Pa Ti’ by Santana or ‘Albatross’ by Fleetwood Mac. How can I find out which of these two it is? It does not appear to be ‘Get This Party Started’ by Pink.

    Ok,the Get The Party Started (sung by Shirley Bassey in the ad) is for M&S Clothes – features Twiggy and other models.

    The question relates to the M&S Food ads ( "this isn’t just any oldfood, this is honey-drenched blah blah blah") and it is indeed Samba Pa Ti by Santana

    It’s Shirley Bassey doing a cover of Pink’s "Get This Party Started"
    (if you’re referring to the one with the long musical intro while women are getting ready to go to a party in a very wintery scene….they arrive and it’s like a giant ice ball room when Shirly Bassey starts to sing) I can’t think of any other M & S commercials right now, other than their long, long winded food ones.

    I hear they’re releasing it as a full single in time for Christmas….
