A Facebook campaign to get ‘It’s Raining Men’ to number one following the homophobic comments of a UKIP councillor may be successful as the song looks set to re-enter the Top 20.

Over 13,000 people have so far liked a Facebook campaign, which aims to get the Weather Girls’ version of the song to the top of this week’s charts.

The Official Charts Company announced today that the original Weather Girls 1983 version of the song had reached number 21 on the chart sales flash, and was less than 40 copies away from reaching the number 20 spot.

The song is also likely to climb further, and may reach a higher spot.

It is available to download from iTunes here, and from Amazon, here.

UKIP Councillor David Silvester recently claimed that the floods to have hit the UK in December and January were caused by same-sex marriage, and that homosexuality can be cured by Christian prayer.

Mr Silvester also claimed in an interview defending his views that more children have been “murdered” as a result of abortion laws than the number of Jews killed in by the Nazis during the Holocaust.

The official music video for the song is available to view below:
