While Electric Six run them close...
Girls Aloud remain at the top of the UK charts this week (January 12) with ‘Sound Of The Underground’ but were run close this week by Electic Six, the Detroit veterans and friends of Jack White, who crash in at two.
‘Danger, High Voltage’ hands the collective their first chart entry, with a track many claimed Jack White himself featured on. They are one place ahead of Eminem’s whose former chart-topping classic ‘Lose Yourself’ remains at number three. Eminem’s big-screen debut ‘8 Mile’ finally hits cinemas in Britain this week.
The next highest new entry comes from Divine Inspiration who bow at five with ‘The Way’, while camp veterans Erasure return to the charts at 10 with ‘Solsbury Hill’. There is little other movement on the top 10.
On down the chart, Foo Fighters start a run of new entries coming in at 12 with ‘Times Like These’, one ahead of Flip And Fill with ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’, two ahead of Verve veteran Richard Ashcroft at 14 with ‘Science Of Silence’, three ahead of Audiobullys at 15 with ‘We Don’t Care’ and four ahead of Badly Drawn Boy at 16 with ‘Born Again’.
InMe score a top 30 hit at 25 with ‘Crushed Like Fruit’, just one place ahead of Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster with ‘Psychosis Safari’ while crusty tree-huggers The Levellers return at 34 with ‘Wild As Angels’.
There is little change on the album chart. Avril Lavigne remains top, Pink swaps with Robbie Williams going from three to two, while Daniel Bedingfield and Justin Timberlake re-enter the top 10.
