Can you part with 99p to help get this song to Christmas number 1?

The London Hospices Choir has recorded a cover of The Living Years (originally by Mike & The Mechanics) and it's currently looking like a strong contender for Christmas number 1- can Mumsnetters help it get there?! (apologies to MNHQ if this is against the rules)

Must do this, my aunt works for one of the hospices. When do you have to buy it by?

The cut off point is midnight on the 22nd. Plenty of time!

Beautiful song and a wonderful cause.

Also I will do anything I can to prevent the Beckham Child or Simon Cowell's money making machine getting to number one!!!

Thanks for promoting this, it seems to have got lost in the other Christmas offerings, looks sternly at beckhams who should have been better advised.

I really really dislike this song BUT I have downloaded it anyway to support your cause.
I hope it does well.

I didn't spot this and just started another thread. But the more the better. Thanks to everyone for the support!
