A groundswell on social media has propelled the catchy Everton anthem ‘Spirit of the Blues’ to Number 1 on the UK iTunes charts tonight.
Sparked by @FinKitch and @NeilLafferty and a series of videos posted to Twitter of famous movie dance scenes and popular Internet memes with the song dubbed over, more and more Toffees bought the song on iTunes for just 79p, helping it rise up the charts until it knocked Miley Cyrus’s “Midnight Sky” off the top spot.

Everton fans are so starved of success, you cant blame us for getting carried away. Theres a bit of lockdown / Covid fever thrown in there too, to make us all mad.
Its all good fun and great to see so many blues enjoying themselves for the right reasons.
Loving it. Long may it continue.
Keep it number 1 Bkues only 0.79 on itunes!!!
Now that we’ve left Cyrus in the dust, time to roll out the Spanish and Portuguese editions to the South American market, sung by James and Allan of course. Shakira will never know what hit her.
Excellent. The clips are a great laugh. Thanks for posting them. The tune’s no match for ‘The story of the Blues’ but these are better words and the video’s are way better.
Brilliant, a lot has happened in the last few weeks and months, and our almost under the radar South American connection has contributed to that I have no doubt.
Long may it continue we have been starved of success for far too long, hopefully this very catchy tune which we are all familiar with, will make a revival to match the football and the Trophy Cabinet too!
Another song I always associate with us is more generic by Thin Lizzy ” The Boys are Back in Town ” remember that being played on the coach several times when we we ventured to Wembley (the old one) seemingly on a fairly regular basis in the 80’s.
Long may It Continue.
For me it has to be; “Bless ’em all, bless ’em all, the long & the short & the tall ”
