Because I'd love to see a Christmas number one that is a.) not X-Factor related, b.) actually festive, and c.) by my favourite group, I'm starting a Campaign to persuade people that it would really really be worth a smidgin of their moneys to purchase the Pet Shop Boys' song It Doesn't Often Snow at Christmas from iTunes and get it to number one for Christmas. So if that idea floats your particular boat, feel free to post this in your LJ and in any communities of relevance. And then don't forget to buy it. I think to actually be Christmas number one, it would have to be bought this week, so it would go into the charts announced next Sunday, which will be the charts that apply on Saturday December 25th.
btw, I'm thinking of the UK charts, but if you're not in the UK you can try to get it to number one wherever you are.
