FLEETWOOD MAC Fans mobilize to get "THE CHAIN" to No. 1 in The UK

There's a massive push going on at the moment in the UK and on Facebook to get Fleetwood Mac to No.1 with the song "THE CHAIN". The song from 1977's Rumours album is the official theme song in the UK for Formula One Racing.

So the idea is to get as many people as possible IN THE UK to buy the track beginning February 28th, so that it impacts the charts and is hopefully No.1 for the 6th of March for the start of the race weekend.

To participate, first off, join the Facebook Page HERE.  
Then beginning February 28th start buying
'THE CHAIN - by: FLEETWOOD MAC' 
FROM THE ALBUM THE VERY BEST OF FLEETWOOD MAC' 
from your favorite online retailer... 

All purchases before February 28th wont help towards the targeted final tally!
I must admit, it's a valiant effort and a monumental task...but it can happen.  They will need everyones participation that can help out (In The UK).  I think it's kind of cool and a great experiment in a way, to show that mobilization through social media can make things happen.  We've likely all heard about the recent events in Egypt where social media reportedly played a huge part in mobilizing people to protest, so we know if the passion is there the people can pull it off.

Just an example:  Ke$ha’s "We R Who We R" debuted recently atop the singles chart in the UK on sales of 90,139 copies. It's a lot, yes.  It'll take an army, a Fleetwood Mac army of fans to get sales to that level.
