John Lewis – New Year New Start

Advert: John Lewis – New Year New Start
Music: Theme from Grandstand (Specially Recorded Version)

The first musical John Lewis ad of 2013 focusses on updating your sports equipment in an effort to start the year with some exercise. The soundtrack is a familiar tune given an unfamiliar piano-based treatment. It is, of course, the theme from Grandstand, composed by Keith Mansfield, and used on the BBC sports show from 1975, right until it was axed in 2007. The John Lewis piano version isn’t available, but you can get the original theme from iTunes.
