"The Winner's Song" is a single by fictional character Geraldine McQueen from Peter Kay's Britain's Got the Pop Factor... and Possibly a New Celebrity Jesus Christ Soapstar Superstar Strictly on Ice, a spoof talent contest/comedy by British comedian Peter Kay, who also plays Geraldine. It was released in Europe on 13 October 2008.
The song was co-written by Kay together with Gary Barlow from Take That, and parodies the style of changing key part-way through a song - a popular trick of modern-day pop songs - starting out in A flat major, moving up to B flat major, and then quickly up to B major.
The video to the song was released both as a DVD single and as part of the Peter Kay compilation "Special Kay",
The video itself is a parody of Leona Lewis' video for her debut single, "A Moment Like This", and the box art of the single is a parody of The Meaning of Love, the debut album from Michelle McManus, who won the second series of Pop Idol in 2003.
The CD for the Winners Song featured the tracks;
- "The Winners Song"
