In Ireland, ATYCLB slips from #10 to #12 in Week 72.

As for releasing another single, regardless of how much airplay a song receives on U.S. radio, I will only "accept" it as a true single if a CD version is released somewhere (Europe, Australia, South America, etc.). At present, despite the airplay of "In a Little While," I have heard nothing about a new CD single being released. As such, I think some stations are just being asked to play a song to further promote the album in the U.S., but it is not an "official" single.

Dr. Who,
But what if "In A Little While" becomes U2s 3rd #1 in the USA. Even then, you won't consider it a single? As far as being asked to play the song, well thats what they did with the previous 4 singles that were not released in the USA. I think the only real official stamp would be if they filmed a video. But look at Pearl Jam, even the video is not needed. Of course, "Until The End Of The World" was never released as a single but was a top 5 hit at Modern Rock radio and Mainstream Rock radio. Better I might add than any song from ATYCLB so far.
Regardless, I hope they do promote it even if they don't release a new single any place. I would hope that they would film a video for it though. That might happen if the song really takes off at radio.

Yes, but "Until the End..." was NOT considered a single, despite the fact it received airplay (and, I thought it only reached #15 or so on the Modern Rock charts...).

I guess my point is, U2 were had officially released those others songs as singles. There were videos, massive exposure, CD singles in other parts of the world. As of this point, I'm not quite sure this is 100% true for IALW. I hear nothing about it being played on the radio in other countries, nothing about a CD single and nothing about a video. As such, I'm not yet convinced this is a true single, or something that will follow the path of "Until the End...".

Week 72

One more week in the charts for U2. In The UK they drop 3 position to #77. Here is the full run for ATYCLB in the UK charts.

1-4-10-20-25-26-28-29-29-23
17-12-12-7-7-8-10-3-6-8
12-14-23-30-39-41-49-54-65-60
53-47-47-58-65-56-47-37-30-23
22-15-16-23-34-42-53-66-83-76
74-60-50-57-69-83-71-54-61-60
64-56-60-76-95-98-?-113-97-64
74-77

Like the previous weeks, we expect more interest in the US charts.

In this point I'd like to say that in the last few weeks I've changed my mind about what I want from the album right now. I used to be of the opinion that U2 should release one more single and push the album to sell as much as it can. Now, my point of view is different. I think the album has done well, and that we shouldn't squeeze another success out of it. Let's leave it fade away in glory...

And most importantly, maybe people do need a break from U2 for a while (this album was promoted quite some much, and U2 were on the news quite often). I think U2 realized this and they won't release another single. And the same thing happened with their summer tour. U2 WERE planning to make that summer tour because rumours for shows were coming from all over Europe, from too many sources for them to be completely imaginative. So it DID cross their mind to tour Europe this summer and promote their work to the maximum, but now they know that the album has reached its potential and they had better focus on making one more good album rather than promothing this one! If all this is true, then it's a VERY realistic and clever decision. Good job boys!

OH NO!

U2's ATYCLB has dropped out of the Top 50 in the U.S.!!! With a whole 0.17% of the data in on HITS, U2 are not in the Top 50.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Unfortunately, you're not too far off. With almost 30% in ATYCLB drops to #33 with 13K copies sold (which will result in 40K if extrapolated for 100%). This is again a big drop for the album. Still, only 30% is in and the difference with #24 is 1,000 copies (as is the difference with #38).

hello all, i think the idea of docwho is great. about making seperate threads with just global chart runs. this last couple of weeks he has asked people to contribute something of their own or other countries. yes, that would be nice if each interferencer returned (some of) the favor the good doc and the few others you all know who gives us each week. like florence76 now has. great. i myself have done some research with google and thats provided me with full chart runs of a couple more countries. please all, do some research in your native tongue or else. more chart runs are needed. we could make an atyclb encyclopedia in the end. would be nice eh. anyway here are some newbies that i will also post in a new Ėchart run only- thread.

Hits numbers are final and as expected, ATYCLB has fallen to #32 with sales of 38,966. "O, Brother.." is #1, again.

Hello,

This is once again one of those weeks in which I don't have much time to comment on the Dutch charts. Sorry! Here are the results of the Dutch jury (Numbers courtesy of Mega Top 100, http://web.planet.nl/music/charts/megatop100/ ).
ATYCLB drops 4 positions to #54 in their 71st week on the charts.
The total run of ATYCLB so far is:
1-1-1-1-1-3-3-3-6-7
6-5-7-6-6-6-5-6-1-2
8-12-16-25-30-36-38-40-45-48
49-43-39-39-45-42-36-27-15-7
6-6-14-25-29-39-37-43-55-47
38-65-60-66-69-80-81-65-57-61
44-41-44-41-56-58-52-45-51-50
54
(all information prior to week 40 with many thanks to Flying Padre Jr.)

The Best Of 1980-1990 drops a bit further as it falls 7 positions to #67. It's now on the charts for 117 weeks.
The Best Of 1980-1990's (10th) chart run is:
86-46-37-45-62-57-61-56-63-45
47-64-63-65-74-73-53-57-60-67

The #1 album in the Netherlands is still the best of by the most popular Dutch singer of the last few years.
Apparently, he even sold more than the rest of the top 10 combined! (Although this isn't a record for him, as he outsold the complete top 20 with his last record)

The #1 single is still (for a 6th week) Whenever Wherever by Shakira.

There are no U2 singles on the singles chart.

Here are the peak positions of the U2 singles on the Dutch chart:
Beautiful Day: #1 (U2's first #1!)
Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of #12
Elevation #1
Walk On #8

C ya!

After some begging and pleading, I got the people at Velvet Forum to finally post this week's SoundScan data.

ATYCLB performs much better on the SoundScan charts than it does on HITS. On SoundScan, it only slips from #17 to #25, selling 40,088 copies, down from 56,202 copies last week. "O Brother..." does remain #1. More results later.

Doc, I told you you have to be very careful when begging there. They aren't too fond of persons requesting the SoundScan top 50 (or 200). Still, thanks for the efforts over there.

Oh, I was nice about it. Almost sickeningly nice. But they are just a nasty bitter group of people! LOL! They bitch and moan about everyone and everything. Must suck to be them in the morning.

In Mťxico, "In a Little while" is the number one song in modern rock stations, based on the airplay. (source: www.radioactivo.com.mx; in spanish)
