Well, it’s that time of year again! Time for the John Lewis Christmas advert and, true to form, it’s a real tearjerker. Especially for fans of the legendary Elton John.
As the familiar dulcet sounds of “you can tell everybody, this is your song” play, you watch the reverse trajectory of Elton John’s musical career, beginning in present day.
As the end of the ad draws nearer, you’ll see a piano-loving schoolboy performing in his assembly hall and peeking over his shoulder to sneak a glance of his mum.
Then you’ll see a little boy running down the stairs on Christmas morning and tearing open the wrapping paper to find a present that’ll change his life: a piano.
