Popular Everton song Spirit Of The Blues is heading for this week's Top 40 on the Official Singles Chart following a social media campaign by supporters.
The club's anthem, first released in 1985, is at Number 40 in today's sales flash (Sept. 29), vaulting 21 places from the previous day.
Everton supporters have flocked to the song following last Saturday's 2-1 victory away at Crystal Palace, which marked their third consecutive victory of the Premier League season under Carlo Ancelotti.
After their win, a social media movement was sparked by user FinKitch, leading fans to dub the 35-year-old song over a range of funny videos.

The club's official Twitter account even got involved, dubbing the song over a video of players Yerry Mina and Richarlison taking part in a dance class with local Merseyside children last year.

Spirit of the Blues was released in 1985 after Everton completed a First Division title and European Cup Winners' Cup double during the 1984-85 season.
