This Lou Reed and company (Pavarotti!) is an ad to promote the tax the BBC exacts for every TV (and radio?) sold in the UK in order to pay for itself.
But that seems less important than the simple loveliness of the whole thing. Right now I can’t imagine a more positive and less maudlin tune with a catchy melody. You hit me with your flower.
Fun sightings for me: Shane McGowan (I think that’s him without the teeth), Dr. John (who got me here), and Robert Cray. You’ll have your own.
