Darkness Close Favourite for Xmas #1
Falsetto rockers The Darkness have been tipped to be the 2003 UK Christmas number one, followed only by the (currently unknown) Pop Idol Winner. The band plan to release “Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End)” Double A-Side in time for the Xmas weekend.
Bookmakers William Hill have them down at 5/1 Favourites, alongside the Pop Idol winner marginally in front at 3/1. The darkness plan to continue their trademark madcap style of song and videos onto this possible Christmas number one, with a Christmas themed Video.
With a number one platinum selling album already under their belts and currently lingering at number 2 in the UK charts with “I believe in a thing called love”, only missing the top spot marginally by failing to beat Black Eyed Peas – Where Is the Love.
