Scottish Soccer Fans Are Putting Human League's 'Don't You Want Me' Back on The Charts

Thursday March 20th, 2014

Fans of the Scottish club Aberdeen are celebrating their team's first Scottish League cup in almost 20 years by pushing a 33-year old pop hit back on to the charts.

The team's supporters have often re-purposed the tune of Human League's "Don't You Want Me" to serenade their star midfielder, singing "Peter Pawlett, Baby!" and have now pushed the song all the way up to fourth place on the UK charts.

The fans are hoping to reach the top of the charts to honor Pawlett, who is ten years younger than the song itself.

For their part, Human League has promised to perform the song in Aberdeen, with the altered lyrics, should the hit reach number one by Sunday.
