Christmas Number One
Attempts to take the Christmas number one spot from X-factor winner has failed. Last year a rebellion was started. The people said no more singers produced in the X-factory and it worked, last year. This time, some bright spark thought it would be a good idea to pit four minutes of silence against the X-factor. I hope no one, knowingly, downloaded that. If they did it says some pretty scary things about the British public. This doesn’t concern me as I’m part of the sinking ship we call Ireland, which does NOT belong to the British.
This year’s X-factor winner, Matt Cardle released a cover version of Biffy Clyro’s song Many of Horror. When it was announced the name would be changed to When We Collide, fans of the original campaigned for Biffy Clyro’s version to become the Christmas number one. This is a much better rebellion, but, sadly, they failed.
Personally I’m sick of the X-factory, producing pop clones. The fact that this rebellion has started, shows me that I’m not alone. Do you think the X-factor has run its course? Should the winners get the Christmas number one? They haven’t earned it, they just get more publicity than any of the other, better, bands/singers.
