A very late blog tonight…

After hearing the new Band Aid single for Christmas earlier in the week it got me thinking into how many copies would actually be sold in the week up until Christmas to get a single to the No. 1 spot (presuming the bookies are correct and it gets there).

I then begun to wonder, what would happen if Leeds fans managed to get the clubs song ‘Marching on Together’ to the No.1 spot, obviously not this year, but maybe in 2005 after getting the song re-released.

If each fan from the 500-1000 regular posters on the WACCOE forum as well as the tens of thousands who attend Elland Road each week bought as many copies as they could afford, solely in the week before Christmas, then they could cause a major shock in the music world and bring the great club’s anthem to fame.

If the Leeds fans did manage to pull it off, the tabloids who are well known for hating Leeds United would have a field day and really slam the move. Here’s an artists impression of what a typical newspaper would read December 2005.

Of course the topic of “Where the money goes” would come into play. Charity is always a good idea, so all profits should go straight into Leeds United Football Club, after all, their debts probably exceed those of a third world country! :o)

Something to think about for next year! In the meantime, any Leeds fans in charge of music for a Christmas party for friends, family, the office, etc should check out the “Leeds United Greatest Hits Vol. 2” CD (available from Official Leeds United retailers).

The last track on the album is “White Xmas”, starts off like the Christmas Classic but has a Leeds United twist – a great track to play at a party, especially if the unsuspecting Man Utd fan is there!

That’s the lot for tonight, sorry for the early talk on Christmas, I hate it when shops, TV shows, etc make a fuss too early on so it’s a little silly making this blog entry! I promise there will be no more Crimbo talk until at least Wednesday 1 st December.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
