The Official UK Charts Thread

Recommended Posts

i want man in the mirror to be number 1, just because it´s a brilliant song that surprisingly wasn´t a top ten in the UK back in the day...buta number 2 it´s good enough.

Another reason to buy essentials:number 1´s, at least in spain and i bet in the UK is the same, doesn´t include MITM

That is true, it has a much more comprehensive track listing inc MITM. I guess Number 1s was more popular initially as it was a much higher profile release. Now buyers are probably looking for something more complete, plus stock is probably better in HMV, supermarkets etc.

i hope too, not only because it is a good song but also because i hate Cascada

Just out of curiosity, did Madonna experience any UK iTunes movement post-Sky1 broadcast?

The UK had one less day of sales following MJ's passing. I don't know if his music will see bigger U.S. sales this week than they did last week (it had that extra day last week).

Yes, I wonder if we will see Hard Candy rocket back up the charts after this weekend. :lol:

I also can't make up my mind if La Roux can sing in tune and Lady GaGa is beginning to annoy me now especially as she is writing about the paparazzi before she was famous.

None of Madonna's albums are in the HMV sales so I doubt there'll be any chart action on the back of the broadcast or UK dates.

One thing the MJ chart action has proved is that video still is the most effective medium for promoting songs with the ones that are being played on the music channels and in news reports doing better than those that don't have videos. It's a shame Madonna doesn't realise this and has let her standards slip of late.

Can't find Madonna in the top 300.

I think the biggest "issue" will be when TIC struggles to sell on the back of a 3 date UK tour and the broadcast, which is sign of the times and should foreshadow the fate of new GH...

is 2009...who doesn´t have TIC???? at least the new greatest hits is going to have 3 new songs, and single edits, so...

But then who doesn't have a MJ compilation in 2009? ;) They kept selling more than Madonna even before his death...

We don't know what versions they are gonna use, and the 2-3 new songs will be downloaded on iTunes for many I guess...

ABBA Gold was re-released in 1999 and again in 2008, but yes Mamma Mia did help it, Madonna isnt far behind it in terms of sales of TIC, yet it was out in 1990 and hasnt been re-released once.

why is Off the wall so high? well, maybe is because is the one that people doesn´t have...and do they count Thriller and thriller 25 like one album?

I believe that's a new peak for Off The Wall. Think it got as high as no 5 before (possibly in the Thriller superstardam era), no 3 was its US chart position.
