I know what you’ve been thinking: “What song is Andy rooting for in the charts this Christmas?” I’m sorry for keeping you hanging on so long, I know how difficult it’s been for you. Well, you can now rest easy in the knowledge that We’re All Going To Die by Malcolm Middleton has my full support this year.
Here are my reasons:
1) I always root for the most inappropriately dark and/or depressing song that’s in with a chance
2) I really like Arab Strap
3) It’s a great song
So, UK single buyers, you have until Sunday morning to put a song about our inevitable deaths at the top of the charts in time for the happiest day of the year. iTunes is probably your best bet for making sure your purchase is registered. Here is a link.
And just in case you’re not sure We’re All Going To Die is Christmassy enough to be a true Christmas single, check out this video, in which Middleton makes full use of a hat, tinsel and a choir of children.
