Pushing The Right Buttons

30/Sep/2005

The Pussycat Dolls & Busta Rhymes hold on to the No1 spot on the Singles Chart for a fourth week with ‘Don’t Cha’ despite a strong challenge from the Sugababes. Almost exactly five years since their first single ‘Overload’ hit the charts the girl’s new single ‘Push The Button’ enters the chart at No2 – their best first week position for a couple of years.


Rihanna, Daniel Powter and Jessica Simpson all drop one place to take the No’s 3, 4 & 5 respectively. After the Sugababes there are three more new entries in the Top 20 – Liberty X’s ‘Song 4 Lovers’ enters at No9, Charlotte Church’s ‘Call My Name’ is in at No16 and T.A.T.U.’s ‘All About Us’ sneaks in at No20. In a close race for this week’s No1 position on the Album Chart The Corrs narrowly miss out to David Gray as he keeps hold of the top spot for a third week with ‘Life In Slow Motion’. The Corrs fifth studio album – ‘Home’ has to be content with the No2 spot – their only album since ‘Forgiven, Not Forgotten’ not to enter the chart at No1. Sharon Shannon’s ‘The Collection 1990-2005’ is pushed down to No3 whilst Katie Melua takes the next new entry with ‘Piece By Piece’ debuting at No4. Neil Young’s new offering – ‘Prairie Wind’ – enters the chart at No11, not quite matching 2003’s ‘Greendale’, which had a first week position of No5. Him also achieve a first week Top 20 entry as ‘Dark Light’ comes in at No19.
