In 2007, the British producer, Mark Ronson reorchestrated this song
with "You Keep Me Hangin' On
" by The Supremes. The cover – which featured Daniel Merriweather on lead vocals – attracted severe criticism from many Smiths fans, including Alex Turner, front man of the Arctic Monkeys, who told NME
: "Let me tell you what I can't stand - that f***ing R&B cover version of 'Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before.'" Mass vilification aside, the song was a smash hit, peaking at #2 on the UK chart – the highest ever chart position for a Smiths song. Ronson later defended his decision to reorchestrate the track and even claimed Morrissey and Marr approved of the cover: "I found out that Morrissey liked it, and especially liked Daniel's vocal, you can imagine how I felt when Marr approved it as well. This is not an apology but a way of showing respect for people who love The Smiths like I do."
