UK #1 Chart Predictions

Here are the first predictions for this week's UK singles chart according to Music Week. Elvis Presley’s reissue campaign could end on a high note this weekend, with early retail reports suggesting his final RCA-released reissue, A Little Less Conversation, is in the running for a number one placing, with a 40% sales advantage over Tony Christie & Peter Kay’s (Is This The Way To) Amarillo. The Comic Relief charity track has, however, reclaimed the number one spot from early leaders on more than one occasion in recent weeks, so the battle for number one is likely to be a close-run fight at the week’s end. Elsewhere in the Top 10, Snoop Dogg, Charlie Wilson & Justin Timberlake’s Signs (Geffen) looks set to give the rapper his biggest solo hit to date, while Brett Anderson & Bernard Butler’s Tears project enjoys a similarly strong start, with Refugees (Independiente) vying for a top five position. Destiny’s Child (Columbia) also look certain to enter within the Top 10, while a cluster of guitar acts - Bloc Party (Wichita), Rooster (Brightside), Paddingtons (Poptones) and Athlete (Parlophone) compete with each other to secure a Top 20 placing. Summary Singles 01 (NE) Elvis Vs. JXL - A Little Less Converstion 02 (01) Tony Christie ft. Peter Kay - (Is This The Way To) Amarillo 03 (NE) Snoop Dogg ft. Justin Timberlake

this tricks is because I hear other singles and the other singles sound very terrible. But for any commerce plan beat Elvis in the number one hit. Because is sad but the campaingn was a failure.

Is probably another trick and this last single will be another #2 again. The Elvis Presley’s reissue campaign was a totail failure against the very good predictionsin the news.

I downloaded a copy this morning from HMV and I didn't have any problem. I chose the first one on the list which gives you a choice of the two tracks available, Radio-edit and extended versions. I chose the first version (radio-edit). Hope that counts for the charts.

Stopped believing the sales count as I have never seen anyone buying Tony Christie.They must wait and download thousands on a Saturday, as anyother time Tony C would have been a 1 week wonder. Elvis will always be No. 1 with me.

emu... similiar problem, I want to d/l but my isp music club won't let me do what i wannado! There are several choices for the track and I can't make out which one is the "new" release and therefor counting towards.

I've been trying to download the new single from HMV. I've credited my HMV account so that I can download the track, and I've made sure I've selected the same track that is on my CD single (radio edit), but there seems to be a conspiracy. There is an error apparently, so that the single version that will be counted towards the download chart this week can not be downloaded. Hmm.. Has anyone else had any problems downloading that particular single from HMV?

Just worth a try, HMV in Preston for some reason seem to keep copies of the latest Elvis release behind their counter! Ask and you may walk away with A little Less Conversation. WE find it very difficult indeed to get recent releases in our area(East Lancashire) I would love to know the sales figures pro rata between the north and south. I bet it's lack of availability in the north though that's preventing Elvis reach that magical number one spot!

Nowhere near a big enough lead,not even over the dog bloke at No.3.Looks like we may get our own biggest total though.TCB

i'm doubtful too. as much as i've enjoyed the drama and controversy of this campaign i can't see ALLC hitting the number one spot. no one knows its the new single, it won't be on the charts until next week and no ones playing it on the radio. the success of this campaign has been down to us fans, we deserve a big pat on the back!
(i hope it does get to no.1 though!!)
bossanovababy (profilecontact) wrote on Apr 26, 2005report abuse
Hmm,how often have we been #1 in this campaign at this stage of the week-13,14 times?! Amarillo got another 57,000 last week so will prob still do a minimum 45,000 this week,and we simply don`t have the copies available to match that. I`ll wait until 2001 posts his/hers uncanny sales figures before i get too carried away. TCB

Fantastic! Elvis should close out the 'Number 1's release series with a number 1. This would give him a total of 4 more number 1's in the U.K, a whole bunch of number 2's and several top 5's. Let's get out and make this happen.

I have a spare ticket for the Birmingham NEC concert if anyone is interested. Good seat, Block J, and you can have the ticket at a cheap £21. Cheers.
