    #29 in mids! Only ever peaked at #53 before, but a cover by Guillemots' frontman Fyfe Dangerfield on the John Lewis ad has proplled this into the top 30! Fyfe's version is coming out but he'd better be quick or the momentum might be lost!

    Fyfe's/ the ad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHcm1ec7CcY

    pretty song but never one of my favorites of his. Nice to see the song getting a huge boost in the UK since I know he didn't really have any real success there until the Innocent Man period in 83-84.

    I did sit there wondering why the voice didn't sound the same as it did on 'Uptown Girl'

    Bit dreary, but then Fyfe Dangerfield/The Guillemots always is/are.
    I sing for the things money can't buy me.

    One of my favourite songs of all time! ... and I swear that John Lewis advert is on a lot.
