What a great cover of an 80's classic!
Bastille cover REO Speedwagon's "Can't Fight This Feeling" for a brand new advertising campaign for British department store John Lewis & Partners and supermarket chain Waitrose & Partners.
The story, titled "Excitable Edgar," follows the titular miniature dragon, who repeatedly ruins his village's holiday festivities: burning down a Christmas tree and melting a snowman with his fire-breathing. But his blunders are redeemed when his young friend cleverly finds him the perfect job: lighting the pudding for their communal feast.
REO Speedwagon frontman Kevin Cronin recently enthused toNMEover Smith's revamped version of the chart-topping 1984 hit. “I’m heartened that the singer John Lewis chose to perform our song is in a band whose music I like," he said. “That makes it all the sweeter.

Hearing your song sung by them is wonderful, and that’s how I feel about Dan’s version of ‘Can’t Fight This Feeling.'”
