Morrissey Okays Smiths Songs For Retail Chain In The U.K.

    Here’s news that will send cries of anguish amongst the Smiths faithful: After years of refusing to license the Smiths catalog for commercials, the Moz has okayed the use of the Smiths classic “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want” in Christmas ad campaigns for the U.K. chain John Lewis. The tagline for the ads will be “For Gifts You Can’t Wait To Give,” and apparently Moz is totally rad with this idea, as he approved the ads back in July.

    The ads are slated to start airing soon. [CMU via Daily Swarm]
