The mid week chart for the official U.K. Top 40 singles is showing the Elvis Presley with 'That's All Right' is currently sitting at No.2. With just 1000 copies short of the No.1 single - 'Burn' by Usher, there is a chance that if all U.K. fans all get behind the single and purchase a few extra copies today, they could give Elvis his 19th No.1 single in the U.K.!
The cut-off point for sales in the UK is close of play on Saturday. Sunday's sales count towards the following week. Bearing this in mind, That's All Right could well be ahead of the Usher single 'Burn' if taking the actual time on sale into account (Usher's single has had an extra day of sales). In addition, Elvis has the momentum. It is going to be close.
What a tribute to Elvis on the 50th Anniversary of Rock'n'Roll that would be! HMV released 5,000 limited edition copies of the single yesterday, which fans snapped up within hours of their release. Remember that this single, which has never been released in the U.K. has already topped the charts in America, so let's do the same for the King over here.
