Pop Idol winner WILL YOUNG remains at number one on the UK single chart today (June 9) for a second week with his cover of THE DOORS ‘LIGHT MY FIRE’.
While not quite the huge seller of his ‘Evergreen’ debut, the single did shift just over 62,000 copies this week. Eminem remains at number two with ‘Without Me’. It has now sold 300,000 to date and is currently the ninth biggest seller of the year. His third album ‘The Eminem Show’, lighting up charts the world over, stays at number one in the UK. And despite the success of the England football team in the World Cup, their official anthem, ‘We’re On The Ball’ by Ant & Dec, drops down the chart from three to four.
The highest new entry on the top ten comes at seven for Paffendorf with ‘Be Cool’, one ahead of US rockers Puddle Of Mudd with ‘Blurry’ who themselves enter a place higher than Moony with ‘Dove (I’ll Be Loving You)’ at nine.
A little further down the chart, No Doubt score another hit at 12 with ‘Hella Good’, while Baddiel/Skinner/Lightning Seeds see their re-released football anthem ‘Three Lions’ crawl in at 16.
With little other movement on the chart, the next highest new entry comes at 33 from Irish dance duo Agnelli & Nelson with ‘Everyday’ three places above Peaches at 36 with ‘Set It Off’. NME favourites The Libertines score their first top 40 hit at 37 with ‘What A Waster’.
With Eminem still at number one on the album chart, there is little change. Queen sneak up to two with ‘Greatest Hits I, II & III’ and DJ Shadow scores the only new entry on the top ten with ‘The Private Press’.
