Mum’s The Word


Mothers Day has a huge impact on this week’s Album Chart, with the Top 3 titles all appealing to the mums. Andy Abraham’s ‘The Impossible Dream’ has a second week at the top, followed at No2 by Andrea Bocelli’s ‘Amore’ and at No3 by ‘The Essential Finbar Wright’, up from No5 last week.

Massive Attack have this week’s highest new entry at No6 with ‘Collected’, a compilation spanning 15 years from the release of their classic debut ‘Blue Lines’ in 1991 through to their two No1 albums ‘Mezzanine’ in 1998 and ‘100th Window’ in 2003. Pat Shortt has a sixth consecutive week at the top of the Singles Chart with ‘Jumbo Breakfast Roll’, ahead of Ne-Yo who climbs 4 places from No6 to No2 with ‘So Sick’. This week's highest new entry is Morrissey’s ‘You Have Killed Me’ – his 20th Top 30 single in Ireland and his highest position on this chart since ‘We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful’, which also reached No9 14 years ago. Donna & Joe have the next new entry at No10 with ‘Heaven’, their follow-up to their Eurovision entry ‘Love’ which made No2 last year.
