Among other telltale signs, including the fact that no sourced reference has given out a track listing for a future U2 recording, the editor claimed that it was already a no. 1 hit in 2009 (note current date). --Technopat (talk) 07:42, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
Deleted again - if you can reference it, back it goes. --Technopat (talk) 16:19, 6 October 2008 (UTC)


Can anyone verify the claim that the song is based on Schubert's Impromptu(s) D899? Having listened to all four of the said impromptus, I can't hear any similarity. And there's no reference or other evidence to substantiate the claim.

I agree...I can not find any similarity at all?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:32, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

John Lewis Christmas ad[edit]

The song has been covered by the band Vaults ( for use in the Christmas advert for the department store John Lewis ( here in the UK ( Their Christmas ad has become quite a big thing here in the last few years and Vaults' cover is likely to be a Top 10 hit for them, so a section on it in the article could be useful... but as I wouldn't know where to begin editing to include that, I'll leave that for someone with more experience that I!
