Gnarls Barkley hold at No1 on the Singles Chart with ‘Crazy’, continuing an unprecedented period of stability at the top of the chart which has seen only 3 artists on top all year: Shayne Ward (8 weeks), Pat Shortt (6 weeks) and Gnarls Barkley (7 weeks).
This week’s highest climber is Brian Kennedy with ‘Every Song Is A Cry For Love’, up 10 places from No14 to No4 on the back of his No10 placing in Eurovision 2006. Sandi Thom benefits from a major label re-release of her 2005 single ‘I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair)’ which is this week’s highest new entry at No10. With both the Singles & Albums Charts showing little movement this week, the star performer is ‘Walk The Line’: the DVD debuts at No1 on the Video Chart and the soundtrack album climbs back to No1 on the Compilations Chart. Meanwhile, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have a third week at No1 on the Album Chart with ‘Stadium Arcadium’, ahead of Snow Patrol at No2 and Shayne Ward at No3.
