As i am sure you are all aware, Leon won the Xfactor on the weekend and as such he is assured the Christmas number 1 spot...or is he??? I'm personally fed up with this bilge being pumped out of TV …

I'm personally fed up with this bilge being pumped out of TV shows and the expectation is put on the public that they will all go out and buy it just to swell the pockets of the already extortionately rich!

Hopefully this year will be different...there is another single out there called "we're all going to die" by Malcolm Middleton. Colin Murray on Radio 1 has been championing this song to be Christmas number 1 for weeks now and i am meerly passing on the message.

Mr Middleton has no marketing budget, no gimmicks, no nothing...just a song and the growing support of amny people. It is about time that people stood up and did what is right and proper. Stop the pop propoganda from consuming our lives and buy Malcolm Middletons song. It only costs 79pence...think of it as your cheapest Christmas present or a gift in the time of good will to all men.

Please take part and give the corporation that is XFactor a run for its money!!

The song is called: "We're all going to die" by Malcolm Middleton

sounds very depressing!!!
#2
great song but it hasn't got a chance of beating the x faxtor song which has been available on download since monday and goes on actual sale tomorrow
#3
lol yea
"heres the christmas number one, WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE"
#4
You're not Malcolm Middleton by any chance....

Really couldn't care what the Christmas no 1 is:santa:
#5
No im not Malcolm :-D

And i didnt really care about the Christmas Number 1 before this song and that because it seemed like a foregone conclusion but if everyone just spares a bit of change then it could make a huge difference.

I know the chances are slim but even if it doesnt make it, it might make the execs of XFactor think its not such a foregone conclusion (they've already doubled this years budget for promoting the song!)

Also, i know it sounds a bit mundane but if you give it a listen then its not a bad song...and its a damn sight better than the precontrived puke that XFactor will undoubtedly ship out!

Just give it a go...and if it doesnt come off at least we tried.

Does anyone actualy care?

Fairytale will be no1. XFac will be 2. Hopefully it will be in that order.
#8
I have no idea what will be number one, and I don't really pay attention to the charts these days anyway, but as long as X-Factor doesn't make Christmas number one, then I'll be happy enough (if it does, then it just proves that people are still buying in to all that rubbish).
#9
Try listening to this club DJ instead, much better for your ears than shaun the sheep or leon!!

Buying other songs to tip something from the number 1 slot doesnt work anyway. They stopped that ages ago and now 'the powers that be' decide who's number 1. In a nutshell it's based on airplay rather than sales, so they can say anything had most airplay and you can't prove otherwise.
#11
Go on Shaun the Sheep, Be Number One. Only Joking, cant believe they actually release a song by him. The X Factor song is good yeah, but still like fairy tale of new york, sounds sad, but reminds me of a friend whos in NZ at the moment.!!!!!
#12
Leon can't sing to save his life , he only won because of the image thing .They think all the stupid teenage girls are going to go out and buy the song. I totally agree with this thread stop it getting to number one.
#13
youre not one of the people that put some money on it when it was 1000-1 are you? (I believe the odds have now been slashed to 16-1)
#14
'We're all going to die'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:?

Not very festive,is it?:whistling:

I like Leon,anyway!!:embarrassed
#15
Its a shame Leon won, the other guy with the blonde hair was a far better singer. Leon is very average, I think he just got the sympathy vote due to the sob story and nervous disposition. I have a friend who was in the final few acts. Even he told me various parts are staged and thats why the show has "writers" despite it being a documentary style programme. (check the end credits)

Its a shame shows like this dont try to encourage the things that make artistes last - ie songwriting, and playing an instrument! Its bizarre that the winners only stay in the spotlight for a few months at most, none of them write songs, theyre just pretty singers, thats it. The Beatles werent just singers, they wrote songs, played instruments as well, thats what you need for longevity.

How many Xfactor winners can most people remember - Will Young.... um that Michelle one... Steve was it? Thats probably it.... look at them now, working in McDonalds... The show is so short term its hard to take it seriously. "Why'd you wanna go and put stars in their eyes?"


I agree with the sentiment of this thread but the Malcom Middleton song doesnt really work for me, a random bloke not even singing at all, just talking. I think ill let "average" Leon become the next xmas no 1, rather than that chatterbox! Better still why not buy a song thats actually good, if there is one in the charts at the moment.

One mustn't forget that X Factor and all those talent shows came in time when Brit music was basically slipping down the charts and needed a jumpstart. The music industry is a harsh business, it used to be monopolised by record companies but now thankfully there is some balance in the cyberspace where indie music can flourish and have a wider appreciative audience. One or two talents amongst the thousands is worth the effort IMHO. Out of all the X Factor winners, for me Leona Lewis has the most potential and amazing talent that can cross over. She's the real deal. I really want talents like her to succeed on many levels and she gets my support. One can only hope she enjoys the journey to stardom and still has her head is screwed on right. My 2p worth :whistling:

Youre right. The thing is though with Xfactor, all the stars are short term. Because its focused JUST on singing and not on songwriting and being able to play an instrument (to help compose and perform) you just get pretty singers as opposed to creative long term artistes. Take The Beatles, Sting, Elton John, Blur, Oasis etc or more currently The Kaiser Chiefs, KT Tunstall etc - people may like or dislike them but they all wrote/ are writing their own material and are therefore much more talented than "pretty singers" from reality TV.

The only person to be an exception to the rule is perhaps Will Young who made a concerted effort not to do what Simon Cowell wanted and release a cover album of rehashed songs AGAIN! Of course its about money but I cant see these x factor "winners" being here in 10 years time or even 5, because the show is aimed to be a conveyor-belt of fame, and its not looking for real creative talent, its looking for pretty singers and thats it. I think thats a shame as it could be focused on bringing real creative songwriters and performer to our screens. :thumbsup:

may be it's a cue for broadcasters to do a show on songwriting or ... well, not sure if pure artistes really want that (credibility). i mean how do you judge the songs - the music - or together. unfortunately it's also about the whole package. to be honest, normal people see the singer or band, they probably don't know who wrote the song. so it's a chicken and egg re-run.

well, luckily we buy music that we like and TV shows are not forced on us ... choices.

From Wikipedia:

Unlike in the USA, no airplay statistics are used for the official UK Singles Chart.

Although the airplay is a massive factor in getting the songs heard and in shops. Personally the Christmas number 1 has been dead for me since Mister Blobby took a large pink and yellow dump all over any pretense at quality :?.

EDIT:

Dear god, did I just quote Wikipedia as a reputable source. :whistling:

i cant really imagine listening to 'we're all gonna die' on xmas day whilst eating lunch with my granny... :santa:
allthough im not knocking the song down i actually quite like it i just wouldnt buy it and wouldnt really want it as xmas no.1


leon is brilliant......he soo can sing, well hes not the best ever singer to walk this planet but hes one of the best i've heard,
so what if its an x factor song...

He got it, number one.

Definitely undeserved, undeserving winner of the xfactor....but definitely undeserving of xmas number one with the WORST and most dull song that ever existed, can see people still singing this every xmas in 20 years time some how, can you?

This is why I stopped buying music a long time ago. The UK Top 40 is one big sales scam to generate CD single profits from teeny boppers. Never in my life have I been quite so disgusted by the Xmas No.1 than this year. I kinda hoped that Shawn the Sheep would win it, just to pop the ever exploititive BMG bubble with a song is actually quite a lot of fun LOL
But no, we are stuck with a number one that will just put more $$millions££ in Simon Cowell's ever expanding coffers. The public are solely to blame, for paying good money for **** music. I am convinced that the paying public are tone deaf.
