Pat Shortt makes it three weeks in a row at the top of the Singles Chart with ‘Jumbo Breakfast Roll’, still way ahead of the nearest challengers Pussycat Dolls ‘Beep’ at No2 and ‘Chico Time’ at No3.
George Murphy has this week’s highest new entry at No7 with ‘Something Outta Nothing’, the lead single from his forthcoming second album. His debut single ‘The Moon Going Home’ reached No2 in July 2004, but his follow-up ‘The Land You Love The Best’ only made it as far as No18 three months later. Bow Wow has the next new entry at No9 with ‘Like You’, his first Irish Top 10 single – his previous best was ‘Bow Wow (That’s My Name)’ which reached No13 back in 2001. Johnny Cash holds at the top of the Albums Chart with ‘Ring Of Fire – The Legend’, despite a strong challenge from Corinne Bailey Rae who climbs from No5 to No2 with her self-titled debut. Josh Ritter enters the chart at No3 with this week’s highest new entry ‘The Animal Years’. His first 2 albums, 1999’s ‘Josh Ritter’ and 2002’s ‘The Golden Age Of Radio,’ never charted, but his breakthrough came with his third album ‘Hello Starling’ which debuted and peaked at No2 in September 2003.
