After debuting at No2 last week and subsequently losing out to David O’Connor in the ‘You’re A Star’ Final, 21 Demands climb to No1 this week with ‘Give Me A Minute’ and in the process make a piece of Irish Chart history: the first download-only No1 Single.
David O’Connor fails to translate his ‘You’re A Star’ winning votes into downloads as effectively, up from No20 to No7 with ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’, while third-placed Maeve O’Donovan moves up from No25 to No21 with ‘Landslide’. Meanwhile Alex Gaudino (feat. Crystal Waters) has this week’s highest climber with ‘Destination Calabria’ up 32 places from No37 to No5, five places ahead of this week’s other fast mover: Fergie (feat. Ludacris) up from No30 to No10 with ‘Glamorous’, the second single from ‘The Dutchess’ following ‘London Bridge’ which reached No8 last September. Cascada’s ‘Everytime We Touch’ claims a second week at No1 on the Album Chart, ahead of Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Greatest Hits’ at No2 and Take That’s ‘Beautiful World’ at No3. Neil Young joins fellow Canadians Arcade Fire and Nelly Furtado in the Top 10 with this week’s highest new entry ‘Live At Massey Hall 1971’ at No9. The Waterboys have the next new entry at No19 with ‘Book Of Lightning’, their follow-up to ‘Universal Hall’ which debuted and peaked at No54 in June 2003.
