Time to buy!

From today and until Thursday and purchase you make will be counted towards the charts for the 21st of December - the very charts that will be in effect far Christmas day!

So if you're looking to support the campaign to get Tom Waits to number 1 with his classic 'Christmas card from a hooker in Minneapolis' now is your chance to do so.

There are a number of places to buy the song from that will be counted by IRMA for their charts. Below is a list of links along with price and other information - if you find one that isn't listed please leave a comment and it will be added as quickly as possible!

Apple iTunes* - 99c, works on any iPod or iPhone (please note the link will launch iTunes)
Eircom Music Club - €1.20, works on any 'Plays for Sure' device / €1.40, works on mobile phone
Sony Connect* - €1.29, works on any Sony device (please note the link only works in Internet Explorer and you will need the SonicStage application to download song)
EasyMusic - €1.35, works on any 'Plays for Sure' device (please note you may have to change your location to Ireland before purchasing as the site's default is for the UK)
Wippit - €1.39, works on any 'Plays for Sure' device (please note you may have to change your location to Ireland before purchasing as the site's default is for the UK)


Please note that purchases from the one site will only be counted once so there's no advantage in purchasing the song many times from the one place. You could, however, purchase it once from a number of sites or purchase it once on every account you may happen to have with the service (which would almost certainly require multiple credit cards).

* Links marked with asterisk are to the page for the album on which the track appears. From there you can purchase the track individually.

okay shameless plug for eircom music site music.eircom.net - but the song can be purchased for €1.20 from this link http://eircom.musimob.com/product/243035/Tom+Waits/Christmas+Card+From+A+Hooker+In+Minneapolis works on non ipod formats etc.

Its also been added to our Christmas top 20 list. Best of luck with it and have a great christmas!!!

Thanks Declan - I've updated the post with the new link.

I'm willing to allow the shameless plug as long as you promise to get as many people in eircom to buy the track (and hey, that'll be good for eircom too!)

Is there any way of harnessing fans from overseas? If they buy from the eircom store from an IP address outside of Ireland, does it count to the Irish Charts?

a worthy campaign by the way
