U2 Soars to Top of UK Pop Charts

LONDON (Reuters) - Irish rockers U2 roared straight to the top of the pop charts on Sunday with their new single "Sometimes You Can't Make it On Your Own," fending off competition from the latest Elvis Presley re-release.

The confessional ballad, U2's second track from their critically acclaimed album "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb," was reportedly performed by the band at the funeral of Bono's father.

It went to the top spot ahead of a re-release of Presley's "Wooden Heart," the latest of 18 Elvis number ones being reissued before the 50-year copyright protection on sound recordings in most European countries expires on his earlier hits.

Six former hits by the King now hold spots in the top 40, according to the Official UK Charts Company.

U.S. rapper Eminem's "Like Toy Soldiers" slipped two spots to number three while "Almost Here," a duet by teen idol Brian McFadden and former "Neighbors" star Delta Goodrem, dropped two places to number five.

Going in at number four was "Soldier" by Destiny's Child, TI and Lil Wayne.

Also new to the top 10 this week was "Black and White Town" by indie band the Doves at number six and dancehall track "Angel Eyes" by Raghav in seventh place.

Tumbling four spots to number eight was Ashanti's "Only U," while the electronic dance duo Chemical Brothers fell two places to number nine with "Galvanize."

"Goodies" by teen R&B singer Ciara, featuring Petey Pablo, dropped four spots to round out the top 10.

and ABOY at 51 on import sales alone - much higher than in the US. About time U2 confirmed those extra shows in the Uk such as Manchester 2
