Billboard Top Commercials October 2017
Billboard, Xander Zellner - 10/11/2017

Finally, Joe Cocker’s “With A Little Help From My Friends” re-enters the Top TV Commercials chart at No. 12 after previously hitting No. 4 on the chart in April. The song re-enters thanks to its appearance in Volkswagen’s “Rain” commercial, while its previous entry was due to Walmart’s “A Chain Reaction” commercial.

Thanks to the new commercial, the song logs 22,000 Shazam tags, 7,000 downloads sold, and 669,000 U.S. streams in October.

“Friends” reached No. 68 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated Dec. 14, 1968, while The Beatles’ original recording, which didn’t chart until 1978 when it was released commercially as a single, peaked at No. 71.

Alan Jones of Music Week.
Major retail chains' Christmas advertisements are legion this year and the one which traditionally attracts most interest is that for department store John Lewis. The soundbed for this year's ad is Elbow's cover of The Beatles' Golden Slumbers, which debuts at No.29 (12,119 sales) to become the 11th such John Lewis hit. Elbow's 14th hit, it is on their upcoming Best Of compilation, and although it can't match the biggest John Lewis hits – which include Lily Allen's cover of Keane's Somewhere Only We Know (2013), and Gabrielle Aplin's adaptation of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's The Power Of Love (2012), both of which reached No.1 – it far surpasses last year's song, London trio Vaults' version of Randy Crawford's One Day I'll Fly Away, which fizzled out at No.53.

Golden Slumbers is the second Beatles song to be so feted – the first being Real Love, a No.7 hit for Tom Odell in 2014 – and sales of The Beatles' own Golden Slumbers are up from 20 to 1,350 in the week, while parent album Abbey Road re-enters the Top 200 at No.78, with sales increasing 249% to 1,674. Golden Slumbers was never a single for The Beatles and is only their 62nd biggest seller digitally, but has been recorded by more than 200 acts.
I make last week's Abbey Road sales at 480.

Abbey Road is no. 78 overall, no. 36 on downloads, no. 39 vinyl, no. 69 sales, no. 98 physical, no. 80 in Scotland.
1 is no. 79 on streaming chart.
Sgt. Pepper is no. 89 on physical chart.

Golden Slumbers is no. 46 on both Sales and Download charts and no. 42 in Scotland. Lack of streams prevented it entering the Top 100.

OCC estimate for Abbey Road in November 2006 was 1,926,000.
My estimate is about 700,000 from 1994 to date and about 2.2m overall.
