In regards to Mark R. In The Ghetto was # 1 US on the Cash Box Charts. In Elvis' Life time, Cash Box was as big as Billboard. See the Article at the Elvis Information Network. Written by me. Just wanted to clarify In the Ghetto. No hard Feelings!

I too have no idea or who this Tony Christie fella is??? But in Asia, when you mention ELVIS Presley everyone knows who he is. the king of Songs, aka Cat king.

Iknow we are talking about uk no1,s thats my pont BMG said in the ghetto reachrd no 1 in the uk but it didnt. And way down didnt go to no 1 till after he died so the date on the is incorrect. As i said changing history to suit them selves. 16 NO 1,S WHILE ALIVE. 2 AFTER HIS DEATH . This makes 18 as the box says

Ooh sorry Priscilla,i better not say. I` d say why not, but i received a warning yesterday so i should prob stick to the topic! So... well done again for NO.2 King, and Good Luck for this week! TCB

Thankyou scsa for seeing my point i am glad some people saw it for what it meant and not a put down......by the way can i be cheeky and ask what scsa stands for?

I also didn`t read Priscilla`s comments as a put down of Tony Christie,to be honest i don`t see it being a big deal if she WAS,however,she wasn`t.Also the analagy made about Elvis in `56 makes no sense to be honest because Elvis at that time was an `upcoming`singer so people could easily have not heard of him. Whereas Mr C,i believe from what i have recently heard has been around for decades,and i also hadn`t heard of him until i saw him miming on Des and Mel(day off!) Anyway,well done with your NO.2 King! TCB

Let's be frank, regardless of merit or otherwise, Tony Christie is No.1 in the same way that ALLC got to No.1 in 2002. Get a song, preferably old, get a tie-in (a sporting event, a charity or a film) and you're quids in, charity or no charity. If it's slightly kitsch all the better! Better still, VERY kitsch. Not quite sure when this fad began, but I can't remember an example of it before 'Back Home' by the England Football Squad in 1970. In the last twenty years, I'd be hard pressed to find a No.1 that didn't follow this rule...

Thankyou Elvis Girl you are right i am not putting Tony Christie down just telling the truth that i hadn't heard of him doesn't mean i am saying he isn't a good performer!And PaulFromFrance we are not in 1956 so i am talking about the here and now and just saying that Elvis does not get the air play that he deserves and i am sure you have to agree with this!

I don't feel that Priscilla is putting Tony Christie down in any way, she is merely emphasising the point thatElvis is getting no air play etc
PaulFromFrance (profilecontact) wrote on Apr 3, 2005report abuse
Priscilla: I guess if we were in 1956, you'd write: "Who is
Elvis Presley ? I hadn't even heard of him until this Heartbreak Hotel song came out and now all of a sudden an album of his songs has been released! But you only have to mention the name Perry Como and everyone knows who he is!"
You can replace "Perry Como" by "Nat King Cole", or whoever you want. Time goes by. That's life. And having these singles in the U.K. charts 27 years after he passed away is enough to be happy, for me (well... to tell the truth, I don't think is so important). No need to put other performers down.

SCSA You are so right, and I agree with everything you said. It's sad that the record company is just catering to the core Elvis fan group, because when I hear and see Elvis on Juke boxes or splashes of his comeback and Aloha in the Hard Rock Cafe or Planet Hollywood, people take notice, and believe me, they're not the core fans, so if a carefully planned campaign ever took off you would see The King catch on in a big way with the younger generation.. Here's hoping that the right people in high places read this message.

Apart from the chart run down on Sunday, has anyone heard any of these songs on the radio?
Priscilla (profilecontact) wrote on Apr 3, 2005report abuse
DID should be number 1!It is a fantastic song my 6 year old son loves it and plays it over and over.By the way who is this Tony Christie....i hadn't even heard of him until this Amarillo song came out and now all of a sudden an album of his songs has been released!But you only have to mention the name Elvis Presley and everyone knows who he is!

I wish `deserving` to be NO.1 was all that it came down to as then Elvis would`ve had about 203 NO.1s! I know some people on this site couldn`t give a you-know-what about chart positions or even buying the singles,but i for one LOVE seeing Elvis in the charts and DO think it is important. I`m already getting withdrawal symptoms about this campaign ending! I know there are DVDs, FTD releases etc but i personally think there is nothing better than seeing Elvis at NO.1 on the singles chart. It annoys me that he is missing out on the top spot not because people have listened to the singles and don`t like them,but because they haven`t had the opportunity TO listen to them,and TO like them! I really hope that DID can mirror it`s CDUK position in today`s real chart,i`ll be disappointed if it doesn`t do better than last weeks chart spot.As for CITC,yes it deserves to be NO.1,but whether or not it gets there depends on a lot of things that, unfortunately we can`t control! Good Luck King.TCB

Sorry Mark We're talking about number 1's in the UK not in the USA. Way Down did go to number 1 shortly after Elvis died, so that has to count because it was released while Elvis was alive. So, to not count it would be a shame.

'Devil In Disguise' should have been No.1. It is one of ELVIS Presley's very best, unique and a real brilliant rockin' number. Surely 'Crying In The Chapel' deserves to be No.1, another awesome song!

I think maybe a few weeks ago Elvis had a no.1 on CDUK and got a no.2 in the charts, so we'll just have to wait and see...
Son Of Mark 64 (profilecontact) wrote on Apr 2, 2005report abuse
I am glad that Elvis has got back to no2. Crying in the chapel is the next release then The wonder of you. But according to 30no1's. it should be In the ghetto but as we all know it didnt reach no 1. It wasnt in the 1977 16 no 1 hits or the castle 17 no1 hits box set only on 30 no1s. It is not included in th18 no1's either thats because somebody wasnt telling the truth twelve month ago or there abouts history was changed and now itsbeen changed back. Also the no1 date foe waydown is incorrect it did not go to no1 till after Elvis's death some people might think who cares. I do the info given by bmg is incorrect and they need to be put right 16 no1's while he was alive and till this box set rerelease 17 way down 18 allc.

I understand your sentiments completely, however i still can`t see it getting any play. It obviously should though. TCB
caseyiodine (profilecontact) wrote on Apr 2, 2005report abuse
Sadly, considering the Pope is in his final hours, it's interesting that 'Crying In The Chapel' is up next. With a lot of air-play this song would provide the kind of solace, Enya's song did following the twin tower disaster.
bossanovababy (profilecontact) wrote on Apr 2, 2005report abuse
I can`t remember the last time these charts actually mirrored the real ones.No.2 after the last few weeks would be cool though, we`ll see how we get on tomorrow. Good Luck King! TCB
