Dec. 17, 2011 - PRLog -- It's that time of year;- the race is on for the UK Christmas number one.
Since way, way back in the day this has been a much sought after achievement;- being the band or artist that has the number one spot in the UK on Christmas Day.

In 2009 Jon and Tracy Morter launched a campaign using Social Media sites Facebook and Twitter, their sole aim was to ensure the X-Factor winner was not the UK's Christmas number one in 2009!

Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name Of' became the UK's Christmas No. 1 2009, all thanks to the Morters' motivated Social Media campaign. Backed by the real music fans of the UK, sick of the dross turned out by the reality TV show that is the X-Factor! It was an incredible achievement, 'Power to the People' stylee!

In this year's run up,  we've heard the hocus pocus first hand as Amelia Lily's single was being promoted by HMV online and billed as the X-Factor winner before the competition was over!

As is always the case there will be several other contenders, some with more talent, personality and chance than others of becoming the UK's Christmas number 1.

Hello magazine online were keen to inform readers "They've won the X Factor, but now the real battle begins for Little Mix. The four piece have their sights set on the Christmas number one, with their single – a version of the Damien Rice hit Canonball. But they must fight off stiff competition from the likes of Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and the current bookies favourite, the Military Wives"
Pass the bucket please!

There are other lesser known contenders, with both talent and personality! These include New Groove Formation with their aptly named Christmas Song. They've become underground favourites, popping up in the most unlikely locations.Check them out, they're doing a D.I.Y. campaign on Facebook and Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1tfSyhN1ME and supporting Cancer Research UK, Great Ormond Street Hospital and SSAFA.

My 50p is on the Nirvana 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', being championed by the Facebook group  Nirvana For Christmas No.1, they're supporting the children's charity Rythmix.  Visit http://justgiving.com/nirvanaforno1

How the heck did that come to be?

The Nirvana For Christmas No.1 Facebook Page advises ...
"As a 100% supporter of the legendary Rage Against The Machine campaign I felt that it had done its job and gave the X Factor a bloody nose in the process. It was awesome and I felt it wouldn't really need to happen again, yet when I heard about the X Factor dismissing a worthy children's charity (Rhythmix) my blood boiled and we felt that something needed to be done"

My finger in the wind test indicates they've huge support, coupled with mischief making know how on their side too in the form of Jon Morter.

Jon has been keen that it be known that he's not running the Nirvana For Christmas No.1 campaign, he's been helping over the last few days and has stated, "Just to  clarify, yes I've come onboard with the Nirvana For Christmas No.1 campaign as an extra admin.  I love Nirvana so  would be really chuffed to see it do well."

What about you;- who are you putting your 50p on for the UK's Christmas number one?
