Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 23/09/2018

img_1345-3I just love Helen’s Song Lyric Sunday.

It introduces me to new music, reminds me of great songs that I have forgotten, or not heard in ages, and it also makes me do a little bit of research in order to give a bit of history, or an interesting fact or two about what I’ve chosen.

I do tend to try to see if I can find a Beatles song to tie in with the theme, and this week, as we are asked to “sleep” I could immediately think of several songs I could offer. Then I started the research bit and came up with this!

On 10 November 2017, Elbow released a cover of “Golden Slumbers” by The Beatles, it was used in the 2017 John Lewis Christmas advert, titled Moz the Monster.

Here is the official video which shows a little of the making of the advert. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Golden Slumbers

Once there was a way
To get back homeward
Once there was a way
To get back home

Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby
And I will sing a lullaby

Once there was a way
To get back homeward
Once there was a way
To get back home

 

Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby
Songwriters: Paul McCartney / John Lennon
