British Retailer Prompts iTunes To Release Billy Joel Cover Song

Billy Joel’s hit She’s Always a Woman could return to the charts after a 33 year absence following its appearance in a television ad for British Retailer, John Lewis.

A version of the song by Fyfe Dangerfield, lead singer of cult band The Guillemots, will be made available from iTunes after it was used in the £6m campaign to promote the store’s “Never Knowingly Undersold” customer service promise.

The poignant commercial (As a new Dad, I got choked up) has been viewed 188,000 times in six days on YouTube, taking both the 29-year-old singer and the retail giant by surprise.
