Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. On the 15th of April the Rangers Charity Foundation single was released. The song is the original version of Penny Arcade written and sung by Sammy King (made famous by Roy Orbison) All profits from sales will go towards the Erskine Hospital for Ex Service Men and Women.

    The plan is to get the single to Number 1 in the charts for Sunday 24th April; a similar campaign was carried out last year with Simply the Best in support for Help4Heroes. The download period is Monday 18th April - Sunday 24th April (4PM) - Anything after this won't count....Some more info below:

  5. Thanks Angie. I've posted the link on our 2 main messageboards and the campaign facebook page "Get Penny Arcade to No1 In The Charts"

  6. Thank you!! :) I shall continue to post yours aswell wherever I can over the next few days/weeks. I've bookmarked the link to the song so i can always find it toooo.
     
  7. There has been a terrific effort from everyone so far. Penny Arcade is at number 29 in the official midweek chart update. All profits are going to a great cause so let’s keep it up.

    Considering the song wasn’t even in the top 100 on Sunday this really is an amazing achievement. There is no doubt We Really Are The People!

    Keep downloading, passing on to friends, emailing, phoning – ANYTHING that gets this campaign the exposure it deserves.

    We’ve had mentions on several English radio stations and Gina McKie promoted the campaign on her Clyde 1 show last night. Keep contacting the radio shows and make requests for Penny Arcade.

    Let’s give this another push as we approach the end of the week!

    Remember, all profits from sales go towards the Erskine Hospital for ex servicemen and women. This is a very deserving and worthwhile charity – let’s do them proud!

    The song can be downloaded from any of these 3 sites:

    HMV (£0.79) - hmvdigital UK - Penny Arcade (Rangers FC Charity Single) by Sammy King

    7Digital (£.0.71) - Sammy King - Penny Arcade (Rangers FC Charity Single) - Penny Arcade (Rangers FC Charity Single) MP3 music downloads - 7digital (Click on the UK flag above the song for UK sales)

    iTunes (£0.99) - Penny Arcade (Rangers FC Charity Single) - Single by Sammy King - Download Penny Arcade (Rangers FC Charity Single) - Single on iTunes

    YOU CAN DOWNLOAD TWICE FROM EACH SITE. NO MORE THAN THIS OR ALL DOWNLOADS WILL BE INVALID

    Please – Step up and PAY

    Thanks!

    WATP!
     
  8. Hiya :) could you post me the link to the page you've put my link on please.
     

  9. Hi Angie. Just type "Get Penny Arcade to no1 in the charts" on your facebook search bar. You'll have to scroll through the wall back to Wednesday.

    I can't get onto Facebook just now but when I get home I'll find it and post a print screen on here for you :)
