Ok, so it's a bit of a long shot, but what have we to lose, apart from 99p?

Anyone in?

I am sure there would be more answers if fd would tell us what he is about instead of just posting a link and expecting everyone to find out themselves.


I do not want any google ads here.

He wants everybody to buy Cool Cat and get it to #1 in the UK charts, or something like that.

Guys, you don't have to be like this. You could answer a civil post with a civil reply, it really isn't that difficult.

As much as I would like to see that song in the charts I don't think there are enough people on QOL or QZ to make a dent in the singles charts.

For those of you who are too bone idle to click a link, here is my idea...

Copy and pasted from the link I gave...

I think we should try to get a Queen song into the top 40 in the UK. We should pick a song and a week to do it in...we should organise support from here, QZ and the QFC and we should see if we can do it (via downloads).

I suggest the song shoud be 'You And I' and I suggest we should all buy from the same place, '7 Digital'.
http://www.7digital.com/

Ok, so it will cost us 99p for the track, but hey, this really could work, we really could give Queen another hit single.

What do you say?

Maybe not, but it's worth a shot at 99p perhaps?

Perhaps, but surely it only counts if you are in the UK and making the purchase. I may be wrong about that though.

But with the current conversion rate, it'll cost me $5.00 to do this. ;-)

Possibly. The idea might fail, but it takes very, very few sales to get into the top 75 and if we can do that, we might be able to get some radio play for this great track. It's the best single that Queen never released!

YV, don't even think about replying with your usual garbage. I seriously and I mean seriously am not interested in hearing it. If you don't like the idea, don't reply again, but do not keep wasting my time.


I reply what I want, sorry. Even if you are not interested in reading it. My idea of a message board is not that everybody should agree to the topic starter - what would there be left to discuss? I am not buying any tracks I already own from the internet but to each their own, good luck for your campaign, lol.

Damn, I edited that reply out as I thought it was overly harsh.;-)

I say it's a silly idea. If I were to give Queen another hit single, I'd surely nominate a better song.

Best of luck, though!

Anyone in?

first of all don't attack people for not liking an almost completely hair-brained idea...

which part of your plan do you think is so fantastic? or plausible?

firstly, you are putting more money in the pockets of rich people who already have made money out of fools like us....ffs - i bought ADATR 3 times...once in 76 on vinyl, secondly in 82 for tha car cassette player and then finally on cd for the "added quality"....
secondly....look at the member list...how many people do you think it would take to dent the UK pop charts let alone reach number 1?

and...how is this in SERIOUS DISCUSSION section?

go away and come back when your brain is working in a forward gear

Brenski.
First of all, I did not attack anyone for not liking the idea. Read back, it's all there.

I have said that the idea is "fantastic" where exactly?

I don't care how many times you have bought ADATR. If you don't like the idea that's fine by me. ;-)

I said that I wanted it to reach No 1 where exactly?

Brenski if you want to play games, you had better do better than this. Seriously, you ain't up to it, now fuck off out of my topic.
