It would be a big victory if U2 beat elvis to number 1. Hopefully the album sales pick up aswell.

No he doesn't. Larry doesn't need to wear any shirt at all.

Elvis got beaten to number one a couple of weeks ago by Eminem. i like Elvis but i was glad Eminem beat him cos im getting really annoyed now at bloody Elvis going to number one every week when he's been dead for the last 25+ years

i think there are 18 re releases on total. These are the songs that have gone no1 before.

i don't think i have heard of a chart battle like this in a while

on cd:uk they didn't actually announce thier no1 this week, they just played sometimes, it seems like they don't even know who is at no1, i'll have to check out radio1 tommorow

All of Evlise's UK number 1's are being re -released bac kto back. I am not sure of the exact figure think it's about 18.

This is the 5th or 6th conseuctive release as far as I can remember. 2 have not gone to number 1, one was last week when he was beaten by Eminem and one was 3 weeks ago but I can't remember the artist that beat him other that she was a new female artist.

The pattern has been that the sales of Elvis have dropped of towards the end of the week and to be honest the general public probably wouldn't have known a new U2 single was being released until wednesday of this week due to lack of promotion, although the juggernaut promotion vehicle as been in full flow for the last 2 or 3 days so I will listen excitedly tomorrow in the hope that they ahve made it to number 1. If you listen to radio 1 which can be found at www.bbc.co.uk/radio between 6.30 and 7.00 uk time you can listen to find out if they made it.
