Day five of my Christmas music theme. Today’s offering is from 2007 when the Black Mountains set-up their Christmas Number Seven project. They figured that they had no chance of selling 250,000 copies of their single to get into the top three, but 45,000 sales might get them to number seven in the charts.
Please note that this was Black Mountains plural from Hereford and not Black Mountain singular, the psychedelic rock band from Vancouver, so they didn’t have a big record company or tame media to hype the attempt.
I did my bit by buying Over Played Song, but the project ultimately failed which is a shame because I think it was quite good.
