Introducing our new feature:
The BIGGEST NEWS this week, of course has to be, that GHOST's 'Dance Macabre' has broken the all-time Blue-Box record!!
Yup, this week, 'Dance Macabre' spent its TWENTIETH(!!) week at #1, making it the longest stay EVER at #1 on the Singles Chart!
The previous record-holder since 1997 was CELINE DION's 'My Heart Will Go On'... spending 19 consecutive weeks at #1 (yes, yes, I know... what can I say ~ I was on a "Titanic high" back then...
), which beat the previous record-holder ~ TINA ARENA's 'Chains' ~ an 18-week-No.1 in 1995. (It wasn't always ballads though, as previous leaders were INDECENT OBSESSION's 'Kiss Me' for 16 weeks in 1992, and SANDRA's 'Heaven Can Wait' for 15 in 1988.)
What makes the new winner even more impressive in my book, is that these 20 weeks have been non-consecutive... that means it fell down and climbed back up a few times.
Will it have more weeks at the top? Well, it doesn't show any sign yet of giving up the top spot... so we'll have to wait and see!
