It's a shame about Mandy, I'm DELIGHTED about Pet Shop Boys (hope they keep the position!), but what is Enrique doing so low??
And why is the Kylie album so low??
(Maybe the fact that that's only after a day's sales? So I guess ANYTHING can still happen!)

Hi -- I didn't expect Shania to be Top 10 this time, but Number 20 is a bit low, isn't it! (And, it was Number 23 on Monday). Considering it's a double-A with "Up" (which is a better song than some of the previous singles off the album) it should do much better.
Re: Kylie -- I'm not surprised, even the fans are disappointed -- but again, we (yes, I am a fan!) all expected Fever Part II, and this isn't it! To these ears it's a tad too American sounding.

Are u serious Fonda? "Slow" - American sounding? I think it's like nothing else on the American charts! It IS a bit of a dissapointment though... expected something more "danceable!" Also don't think it will do much on the American charts...
Post time: 2003-11-21 00:08:36
... I did say "a tad..."
Post time: 2003-11-21 08:32:30
Yeah - quite low for Shania
- probably means it'll be the last single off "Up!" in the UK (unless they decide to release that wretched "She's Not Just A Pretty Face" as well!
) It's a shame though - should have been released earlier if you ask me - one (two) of the best songs off the album!

The new Enrique Iglesias single to be released soon - "Addicted", is HOT! See the video by clicking on the picture!
Post time: 2003-11-18 11:41:39
Yes, it's a good video.
The Enrique single is out this week, as well as Westlife, Girls Aloud & Alex Parks. Another tough battle for UK #1.
1. Alex Parks
4. Girls Aloud
Will send this week's midweeks tomorrow when they become available. I would really like to see Alex Parks at #1 - it is such a good song!
BTW, interesting chart fact:
First week sales-
Busted - 55,033
Britney & Madonna - 48,751
Kylie's first week sales 2 weeks ago 41,434
Lylie last week: 18,088
Post time: 2003-11-18 22:57:14
Yeah - that IS interesting! Britney & Madonna should have released their single a week earlier!

Westlife is releasing yet another cover version as their follow-up sinle to Mandy. This time it's Mr. Big's - Be With You (out in March).
Someone please stop them!
Post time: 2003-11-13 09:50:40
Agreed! With all the money they have, and all the talented songwriters out there, why don't they pay for some decent, original songs? Makes one wonder what's to become of Westlife?
Post time: 2003-11-15 22:40:15
Have just heard the Westlife version of "Be With You" and it's rather fabulous! In fact - the whole new album is suprisingly good!
Post time: 2003-11-15 23:11:56
Well - surprise, surprise!

Die Boer se roer is weer op "force majeure"! Dankie grote President, ek is vir eers op 'n ekskursie na die Stroom by die Pot, sal Dinsdag weer aantree vir aktiewe diens!
Kevin, enjoy your week-end, and I think it is time that you start learning to speak the "unofficial BI Language" - Afrikaans! Lekker voete stamp, ask Rohan what that means, he will be able to tell you!!

Hi Die Boer,
Actually I have learned some Afrikaans from Rohan. Just he is too lazy to teach me more.

OK - the new Pet Shop Boys single "Miracles" is absolutely fabulous, but predictions as to how it'll fare on the charts in the UK?
Post time: 2003-11-14 17:43:10
okay slowcoaches... let me take the lead... "Miracles" will definitely make the Top 20 in the UK, and probably the Top 15, though I predict #10... especially since it's a return for them to their more electronic / dance -sound...
Post time: 2003-11-15 08:40:08
Yeah - one of their better songs in recent years... I predict #13!
Post time: 2003-11-15 09:26:40
It will be a Top 20 hit - no doubt - maybe even Top 10.
Although snubbed by UK Radio1 (not playlisted at all) - it's A-listed on Radio2, which actually has more listeners, & the songs gets played almost 4 times daily.
It will featue on the HITS 57 compilation (very very popular) which will be released the same day as the single. So, only the die-hard fans, and those strapped-for-cash will be buying the single. Bit of a stupid move by the record company to allow the song to feature on a Hits compilation this early.
