Silent night?

It’s the Holiday Season  Dept
...and abuncha wags in the U.K. want to mess with your mind (or at least the pop charts...):
A motley crew [oh, har-de-har! - o.g.] of musicians backed by a Facebook campaign are plotting to hijack the poor beleaguered Christmas number one with a four-minute recording of silence.

Following last year’s triumphant, internet-bolstered, telly-talent-compo-orthodoxy-upending ascendance of the gleefully inappropriate and profanity-sprinkled Killing in the Name by Rage Against The Machine to the once-sacred top spot, a campaign is under way to get a charity recording of avant garde composer John Cage's 4'33" to the lofty position for 25 December.
Meanwhile over at Roseholme, Roberta produces a generic carol, guaranteed to offend no one.

Now, who’s up for a chorus of Deck Us All With Boston Charlie?
