Find out which song and artist your John Lewis Christmas advert would be
This year's John Lewis Christmas advert has been unveiled, and with it the trailer's soundtrack - a cover of REO Speedwagon's 1984 hit Can't Fight This Feeling by Bastille.
The theme song for the highly anticipated advert usually sees a current artist covering a classic. For their 2012 festive trailer, Gabrielle Aplin released a haunting take on Frankie Goes To Hollywood's 1984 chart-topper The Power Of Love, while the 2010 advert was soundtracked by a cover of Elton John's 1970 hit Your Song by Ellie Goulding.
Spotting the trend, a Twitter user asked people what their John Lewis Christmas advert soundtrack would be, by taking the song that was Number 1 on your eighth birthday and adding it to the artist who was Number 1 on your birthday in 2017.
