    For all the schlock that has been No.1 at Christmas over the years, this makes me very happy.

    Very interesting to see that a Facebook campaign was behind what they are calling a monumental upset on par with Engelbert Humperdinck ending the Beatles' run of 12 consecutive No. 1 singles.

    I've always wondered why the Christmas No. 1 is such a huge deal in the UK, and not at all here.

    I think there's a tradition to it, just like the way the single as an entity remains relevent in the UK.

    What, did Cliff Richard have laryngitis this year?

    No, a sweater transplant went horribly wrong.

    The best part is that one of Simon Cowell's many annoying creations was elbowed aside. ;D

    Simon Cowell is the machine. Rage Against, indeed.

    Unfortunately, there is every chance the kid will hit the top of the charts next week instead.

    Which in itself deserves to be celebrated.

    I always loved buying singles. I still have most of my old 45s from the '80s packed away somewhere.....no idea if they'd still play on a turntable if I had one, but I got 'em.
