My understanding is it came out several years ago, and that this year's version was a remix? Or perhaps the original wasn't a campaign as such?

From what I can gather the song was written in 2015 but didn't garner any interest until the Radio X team discovered it this year. Either way, he's never been Top 100.

Yeah the original was just a random song released - Chris said it had about 60 views when he discovered it a few months ago.

I wasn't sure about that one, I knew there was a campaign for it to beat the X Factor song the week before Christmas but it looks like the campaign continued into Christmas week as well so I'll add that in.

There was at least one in 2007 as well (Malcolm Middleton's 'We're All Going To Die', #31).
