Rebel song to top BBC World poll?

Apparently the result of a ‘guerilla’ style voting campaign, an old Irish rebel song A Nation Once Again to the top of a worldwide poll to find the most popular song at the BBC. An email campaign and some online discussion sites may have been instrumental in working up the numbers required to make the song a top contender to make it into The World’s Top Ten.

Voting has now ended, but the final chart will be published on 21 December.
