Hi everyone, you may know of a guy called Alex Day (aka nerimon) for making generally wonderful YouTube videos - well, if you didn’t know, he does music too :)
If you haven’t seen him before, here’s a picture:
He’s the one the right - I mean left. Oh and he’s not a Muppet this is the Muppet version of him. I knew I should have used another picture…
His last single - Forever Yours reached #4 in the UK singles chart on Christmas day last year, he’s an independent artist. This happened because of the amazing work of the YouTube community.
His next single, a cover of the Peter and Gordon song “Lady Godiva” is planning to do a similar thing, except this time:
- It’s not the freaking Christmas chart - so it will be far easier to break into
- You can actually go into music shops and buy the single (how cool is that?)
- Alex has a larger fan-base now as a result of Forever Yours
- In my opinion, this song is better than Forever Yours
There, maybe this time we could even get a #1!
So, here’s what to do:
Watch the music video (which is just amazing by the way):
If you really like the song, on the seven days proceeding April 1st (the day the song comes out) buy it on iTunes, buy it at HMV - hell, buy the remixes too if you can! It all counts towards the chart place as long as it is done before Sunday, April 8th.
Also, promote in the best, funnest ways possible - make videos, tell radio stations about the song, record covers, even just tweeting about it helps, do whatever you can!
So I hope we can really get this Alex Day chap to #1, just to show the big guys once again what we are capable of :)
