10th November 2017

Music Track: Golden Slumbers (Beatles Cover)

Music Artist: Elbow

The John Lewis Christmas advert for 2017 features a young boy called Joe and his imaginary friend, Moz the Monster who have so much fun together, it keeps the boy awake at night. For Christmas, Joe receives a star projection light to help him finally get a good night’s sleep. The music in the advert is a cover version of the Beatles Golden Slumbers recorded and performed by English indie-rock band Elbow who are also launching a new ‘Best of Elbow’ album. Golden Slumbers was recorded by the Beatles in 1969 as the B side of their classic 1969 Abbey Road, the song is based on the poem The Cradle Song, written by dramatist Thomas Dekker in 1603.

  1. Not sure about the ad but John Lewis seem to always get top marks on the music they pick. Love Guy Garvey’s voice, so homely.

  2. Love the advert
