John Lewis is a chain of department stores in the UK. There’s nothing particularly remarkable about that but one difference between them and the other stores vying for your hard earned cash is that around Christmas time they tend to produce an advert that as well as fabulous cinematography that tells a story also contains a great music score.
Last year’s example was no different – now a band I have listened to many times are The Smith’s and it was their track ‘Please, Please…’ that was featured only actually sung by an emerging new singer ‘Slow Moving Millie’.
Now I’m not adverse to cover versions of songs but even I have to admit it takes guts to take on someone such as Morrissey and his Gladioli but actually I was impressed enough to buy Amelia Warner’s (her real name) album which has covers of many familiar 80’s tracks. These make for interesting listening – tracks I am so familiar with others’ singing it’s hard to work out whether I actually like them or not.
Anyway irrespective of that here is the advert (and music) for you enjoy and I’m sure even though it is Easter and not Xmas you will anyway – the kid is just so cute.
Bet you didn’t guess the ending either !
