Do you constantly struggle to find an original and unique personalised birthday present? How many hours have you deliberated over what gift to buy Dad for his birthday? Well the good news is that MyFirstRecord.co.uk has come up with an original idea for gifts for football fans across the UK, inspired by the fans of Aberdeen Football Club!!
A social media drive by Aberdeen FC fans looks like it will jettison 1980s New Romantic band The Human League into the official chart Top 10. Aberdeen FC fans have been downloading Human League’s 1981 No1 “Don’t You Want Me” as they have adapted the lyrics to “Peter Pawlett Baby” at games ( Peter Pawlett is a midfielder for the club ). The Official Charts Company has confirmed that “Don’t You Want Me” by the Human League has reached No12, with the expectation that it will reach the Top 10 on Sunday.
Campaigns on Facebook and Twitter to get the single to the top of the charts have accelerated since Aberdeen FC won the Scottish League Cup on Sunday, with the chant echoing in the background. “Don’t You Want Me” was the highest new entry in the iTunes chart on Tuesday, and has continued to climb.
Most football clubs have their own football anthem, that the fans sing during the match. The most famous are “Blue Moon” sung by the Manchester City fans, Liverpool’s “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and West Ham’s “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles”. At the Record Press author’s football club, Nottingham Forest, the stands ring out with the Forest fans’ rendition of the Righteous Brothers “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling”. Here is the Record Press Top 5 Best Football Club Anthems –
