Get Peter Pawlett Baby To Number 1!

Aberdeen fans have managed to get The Human League's 'Don't You Want Me Baby' into the top ten of the actual UK charts because that's the song we sing for Peter Pawlett.

The chaps from this Facebook page (which went from 0 likes to about 7500 in a couple of hours) started the campaign today, I think, and at the time of writing it is currently here:

So it's in fifth place.  For those of you who aren't Aberdeen fans, and I'm not even sorry about how little of a shit you probably give for all these Dons related updates, the song goes:
Peter Pawlett baby!
Peter Pawlett OOOOOOHHH!

And that's really all there is to it.  If you're not sure then you can watch a video of some boys in Aberdeen after the cup final invading a La Tasca to the same tune here.

I'd like to point out that in addition to buying 'Don't You Want Me', which as you may recall is one of the most famous and successful songs of all time, you could also buy this, which isn't:

I guess I have heard that times are pretty tight for The Human League though so you should get there's if you have a choice.  These days they only actually make thousands of pounds in PRS royalties a day.  So sad.

I'm hoping that I can afford rent this month, so cheers for that.
