It was announced today that the official Comic Relief song, "Gold Forever" about a member of the public ripped off by sending their scrap to www.weconanyone.9ct.com has been a sure fire hit for the charity, raising hundreds of pence to help the needy.
The song has been top of the pop, classical, alternative, soap opera and WeightWatcher charts for the past 6 weeks. The Feeling, the group wot writ it (note the chavtastic language), have been absolutely delighted with the result, and even went as far as to say "they was delighted" without dropping the "t" of delighted", although they did say "We was".
At this stage, it has been reported that the profile of The Feeling has been raised in countries that have never even heard pop music, let alone The Feeling, generating tens of millions of pounds of free publicity, PR and awareness for both group and record company alike.
With 88p from every download going to the group and record company, this leaves a whacking great 11p (or 3p if Sir Bob Geldof turns his backs on the accountants) from each sale going to deserving causes.
The group was also said to be delighted that as a download, it didn't really cost them anything anyway.
The group is hoping that they will be able to further raise their profile with charity singles for the aged, birds, animals, whales, the homeless and anywhere else they can make a quick, effortless buck.
