23 With A Bullet

The Facebook campaign to shame Iris Robinson by sending Simon & Garfunkel’s hit to #1 saw early success today, when the track leapt to #23 on Amazon’s top downloads chart. Banners promoting the effort were hung across from the Northern Ireland Assembly building yesterday. Paul Simon should be pleased, he hasn’t seen the inside of the UK Top 40 in thirty years. That was when Late In The Evening reached #9 in 1980.
