Advert: Spar – There For You
Music: Stereophonics – Handbags and Gladrags (re-record)
This Spar TV ad presents staff as friendly shopkeepers who have been “there for you” since 1957. The ad soundtrack is a re-record of Handbags and Gladrags, better known in recent years as the them from TV’s The Office. Handbags and Gladgrags was first recorded in 1967 by Chris Farlowe, and then in 1969 by Rod Stewart. This re-record is most similar to the 2001 version by Stereophonics, which is available to download from iTunes.
