Gnarls Barkley’s ‘Crazy’ remains stubbornly at the top of the Singles Chart this week despite a very strong challenge from Sandi Thom whose single – ‘I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker’ moves up the chart from No10 to No2. This gives Gnarls Barkley eight weeks at the top of the chart and equals Shayne Ward’s reign earlier in the year. Mary J. Blige & U2’s ‘One’ drops a place to No3 as Infernal continue their slow ascent of the chart moving from No6 to No4 this week with ‘From Paris To Berlin’. Pink achieves this week’s highest new entry at No6 with ‘Who Knew’ – one place short of her last single ‘Stupid Girls’ which debuted at No5 in March.
For another week the Album Chart shows little change at the top. The Red Hot Chili Peppers hold on to the top spot for a fourth week with Snow Patrol’s ‘Eyes Open’ holding steady at No2. Mundy scores this week’s highest new entry as his new live album & DVD ‘Live And Confusion’ enters the chart at No6 – unable to match the achievement of his 2004 album ‘Raining Down Arrows’ which debuted at No1. Brian Kennedy, fresh from his Eurovision experience, also achieves a Top 10 entry with his new release – ‘Homebird’ which enters at No9 – a better placing than 2005’s ‘Red Sails In The Sunset’ which entered the chart at No20.
