Fyfe Dangerfield: 'She's Always A Woman'

By
Fyfe Dangerfield 'Fly Yellow Moon'
Released on Monday, May 17 2010

We all know what can happen when a popstar performs on The X Factor, not to mention the impact Glee has on the Wednesday midweeks, but the power of a good TV ad shouldn't be underestimated either. A case in point? Fyfe Dangerfield's cover of this old Billy Joel chestnut, which is on course to crack the top ten thanks to a leg-up from John Lewis.

The ad may be as comfortably middle-class as a dimmer switch, and as warm 'n' fuzzy as a cuddle from a Care Bear, but there's actually an intriguing hint of acidity to these lyrics, which were written in tribute to Joel's then wife - she was a bit of a ball-buster in the boardroom, apparently. Of course, Dangerfield croons them so nicely that few are likely to notice and, available for just 59p from iTunes, there's no denying that the "Never knowingly undersold on price, quality and service" promise is upheld here.
