Get George Best to #1

Manchester United fans are being urged to buy a new version of Belfast Boy and help it reach number one in the charts, just in time for the late, great George Best's birthday on 22 May.  

The terrace anthem was first released by Don Fardon in 1970 but it has now been reworked by Manchester band The Electric Stars, who will donate all proceeds from sales of the song to the George Best Foundation and Manchester United Foundation.

Watch the video above to hear the track and relive just some of Best's career highlights. Belfast Boy is out now on CD and is also available to download from iTunes.
