In the UK charts this week... Congrats to Will Young on his new #1 single "Leave Right Now", beating Shane Richie at 2 with the Wham! classic "I'm Your Man" (Wham!'s was better, wasn't it?)
Michael Jackson has a new entry at 5 with "One More Chance" and No Doubt unfortunately only makes #20...

At least Pet Shop Boys make the Top 30 this week on the Album charts... and Enrique's new one is in at #13... Congrats to Alex Parks on her Top 5 placing.
Ronan's fortunes continue to flounder on both charts...

Worst news of the week is Room 5's low chart position at 38... (can u see the sarcasm in my eyes?... )

Yeah - must say I'm glad for Alex Parks... both the single and the album seem to be doing well... just hope the album doesn't fade too quickly after the first week! (which too easily seems to be the trend these days... she's great - hope she lasts!)

What a close race it was for No. 1 (and very well summed-up by James Masterton on his Chart Comment) - Will eventually sold 124K, and Shane Richie 120K.

Will should be No.1 for a second week, as there is hardly any competition among the New Releases this week - the highest New Entries are expected from Blu Cantrell & BEP.

I am also very happy for Alex Parks (she truly has a fantastic voice) considering the album was a "rush-release" filled with covers she performed during Fame Academy. There is, however, five songs on the album written by Alex (including "Maybe That's What It Takes", and "Cry", the next single), and these showcase her wonderful talent as a song-writer.

The current No. 1 single on Blue-Box... if maybe you weren't exactly sure WHAT Gwen was singing, here are the lyrics!

"It's My Life"

Funny how I find myself in love with you
If I could buy my reasoning I'd pay to lose
One half won't do
I've asked myself
How much do you commit yourself?

It's my life (Don't you forget)

Funny how I blind myself
I never knew if I was sometimes played upon
Afraid to lose, I'd tell myself what good you do
Convince myself

It's my life

How much do you commit yourself?

It's my life
Don't you forget
Caught in the crowd
It's my life

The new No Doubt video is a MUST-SEE! Covering the Talk Talk classic "It's My Life", they've breathed new life into this song - no wonder they're gaining in airplay and sales on the Blue Islands! And Gwen Stefani looks uncannily like Madonna (or is that Marilyn?)
Click on the pic below to see what the fuss is about!

Yeah - what a great video! I understand the Nominations for this year's Blue Glove Awards will be announced SOON! "It's My Life" is bound to feature somewhere, I'm sure - so keep a lookout for that!

Here on the Blue Islands of course it was considered at one stage to host its own "Idol" show - but the idea was quickly dismissed. It should be an interesting competition... it's been decided we will be siding with South Africa for this one...!

Yawn! Beyonce's "Baby Boy" #1 in the US for a NINTH week...!
Also, it's BAD enough - I guess that would explain how the new Alicia Keys could make the Top 20 this week... Double Yawn!

Interestingly and unexpectedly though, Tina Arena's "Never (Past Tense)" re-enters at #97...

True. At least we can look forward to Mis-Teeq on the US Charts soon. Scandalous is out on December 2 (featuring Redman & Ludacris on "additional" vocals off course).

Finally! Mis-Teeq SHOULD do well on the US charts... whether they WILL is another question!

Just heard the "new" version of "Scandalous" which features Redman & Ludacris... and it's HORRENDOUS!! They totally KILLED the original song!! Sounds so American now, but it lost the original Mis-Teeq magic... SUCH A SHAME...!
