Hi guy's seen this topic on RAWK yesterday, it came from a suggestion by Steve Rotherham MP. I think this is a great idea to show the world just how we feel and support the 96. Here is the itunes link so you can just click on it and buy this track from them, It's only 99p and i can't think of a better way to spend 99p. The track is now at number 1 on the itunes chart and number 2 on the amazon chart. Guy's we can do this but we need to keep this up by everyone following the link and buying the track. Cheers guy's Bob YNWA

While you're there can I also suggest you spend a bit more money and download "Never Buy The Sun" by Billy Bragg. It's a brilliant track and, for me at least, there is nothing those c.nts can do or say that could change that position.

[background=rgb(238, 238, 238)]You’ll Never Walk Alone re-enters the Top 20 following online campaign[/background]

[background=rgb(238, 238, 238)]Gerry And The Pacemakers’ version of You’ll Never Walk Alone has re-entered the Official Singles Chart Top 20 following an online campaign by Liverpool fans to raise awareness for those who lost their lives in the Hillsborough tragedy.[/background]

[background=rgb(238, 238, 238)]The track, which was adopted by the club’s fans in 1963 after it spent a month at Number 1, today re-enters the UK’s Official Singles Chart at Number 12. According to the Official Charts Company’s latest sales data, it sold over 28,000 copies in just over 24 hours.[/background]

[background=rgb(238, 238, 238)]The campaign to get the track back into the Official Singles Chart was started by Liverpool Walton MP, Steve Rotheram, on Friday evening (September 14) following the release of the Hillsborough Independent Panel report last week. The report revealed that police had tampered with witness statements and that 41 of the 96 lives lost at Sheffield Wednesday's stadium on 15 April 1989, could have been saved.[/background]

[background=rgb(238, 238, 238)]“People have asked what they can do now. If you download You’ll Never Walk Alone, it will send a message to the rest of the country,” wrote Mr Rotheram wrote on the micro-blogging site.[/background]

Gerry Marsden is donating all the proceeds from the sales of this track to the campaign as well, so it's a win win, only 99p and we are at number 1 now but we need to keep downloading it to stay there

RAWK are saying it went in at number 12 in the official charts, I don't really understand all the charts these days though now they have downloads involved.

Number 1 would have been amazing but I'm thrilled at the amount of money it will have raised to help the families.
