How do I start a Christmas Number One campaign?

Dude
 Share

Hey guys,

I've decided I want to try to get Blue Swede' 'Hooked on a Feeling' to Christmas Number One.

The only problem is I don't know how to kick start such a campaign. I seriously want to give Simon Cowell the middle finger because of the pop drivel he shits out each Christmas and I decided that I want to listen to something better.

So how would I do this? I already have a Facebook page but I don't think I'm allowed to share a link due to advertising rules.

Thanks.

Everything. 

 

Getting a hit song isn't as easy as a "kickstarter"

Takes years of experience and you have to know people in the business. 

 

Also, no one is forcing you to listen to Simon Cowell's music.

I'm not physically trying to make my own song in order to get it to Christmas Number One. I am simply trying to get an already existing and fairly popular song to Christmas Number One.

by getting the word out through forums/facebook/ in game chat windows/twitter everything... just like about a year ago when everyone everywhere suddenly started to trade out their profile pics to giraffes and stuff youd be surprised how quickly something can take.... just like the harlem shake exploded with nothing more than like 30 seconds of song

Well I guess that's a small part of what I was asking this entire time. So let me reiterate. Campaign leads to song sales, youtube plays, etc. which in turn leads to a spot on the charts. But I don't exactly know what to do to start off that campaign.

It still has nothing to do with Christmas, how would it become a christmas hit?

Hard to explain. But songs such as Rage against the Machine's 'Killing in the name of' have gotten to Christmas Number One before.

The key points in getting a song to number 1 are most likely that you need either a lot of money to get the word out by advertising, a really good group on social network who will share it and allow the word to spread enough for it to happen, or a major event like in 2012 we had the hillsborough tribute song in the UK. Otherwise, don't bother listening to the radio over christmas, as you'll just get depressed.

That's not "exactly how it works". You're basing your opinion off speculation and passing it as fact. Now I don't know what OP means by "christmas number one" but a lot more factors carry into it then just viewership on one website.

Number One spot on the UK Single Charts around Christmas Time is coveted. And has also been shortened to Christmas Number One
