Elvis came in second to Ciara feat. Petey Pablo with the single "Goodies". The single "One Night" dropped to #20. That drop sets a new record of its own by tumbling 1-20 as the biggest ever fall from Number One, although having said that it still fares better than last weeks Number 2 hit 'Empty Souls' from the Manics which slides 2-26. "Jailhouse Rock" dropped to #50 from #10.
A possible #1 next week will be a problem, since the Tsunami Aid single will be out then (and widely available). Also out are singles by Delta Goodrem and Brian Mcfadden which get major airplay.
Elvis should make Top 5 though, which is in line with the original aims for the singles re-releases (more Top 10 and 20 Hits for Elvis than any other artist).
Additional update from CoolClarity:
After taking the number one position for two weeks in a row with reissues of former chart toppers, the ghost of Elvis Presley gets a rude awakening this week, with what was expected to be another number one - A Fool Such As I - faltering at the last minute, and having to settle for a number two debut, writes Alan Jones.
In Presley's stead is Ciara, whose Goodies put on a late surge, selling 6,238 copies on Saturday to take its week's sales to 21,128, while the increasingly hard to find, limited edition Presley single added a miserable 1,236 sales to its tally, to total 20,002 for the week.
Ciara's tally is 3.2% up on the all-time low number one tally of 20,463 which won One Night/I Got Stung the distinction of being Presley's 20th number one and the chart's 1,000th champion last week.
