Next Week Singles: Lovers Electric, Wes Carr. Next Week Albums: Brandy, David Archuleta, Justice, The Herbs, Panic at the Disco, Akon, Common, Kiss (Box Set), Ludacris, Maroon 5, Status Quo, The Kinks, Rascal Flats.
For a straight third week, Lady GaGa's second single remains at the top of the Australian Singles Charts. It's been No.1 in New Zealand for the past three weeks, and is so far Top 5 in Canada and Sweden, and rising in Norway. Her next single "The Fame" is currently climbing below the Top 50.
With a No.2 debut on the Download Chart, the winner of Australian Idol for 2008, Wes Carr, makes a national debut at No.3 with his catchy song "You". But with the CD Single out this coming week, it could mean a rise for "You" next week. He is the highest new entry on the charts this week, the other three I'll talk about soon.
With only Wes Carr's single entering the Top 10, Katy Perry's "Hot N' Cold" drops out of the Top 10 this week, and only P!nk's "Sober" rises back to it's previous peak of No.9, with the rest either moving down or remaining stagnant for this week.
With albums by Kanye West, The Killers and Coldplay (Re-Packaged) coming out this week, it has helped their respective singles rise back up the charts. The Killers are the biggest climbers of the week, up 17 places to No.28 with "Human", whilst Kanye's "Love Lockdown", which had been floating in the 31 to 40 section for the past 9 weeks, by-passes the 20's to leap eleven places to No.19 this week. And Coldplay, who have the biggest climbing album see their single "Viva La Vida" go back up the charts ten places to No.37.
The second highest new entry of the week is the theme to the 22nd James Bond film "Quantum of Solace", which opened in cinema's last week. "Another Way to Die" is a duet between Jack White and Alicia Keyes, and is the first Top 50 Bond theme since Madonna's "Die Another Day" hit No.5 in November 2002.
Jessica Mauboy performed her new single "Burn" at the wet-and-windy Australian Idol Grand Final on the steps of the Sydney Opera House last weekend, and it debuts this week at No.30. The CD Single is out this week, so expect it to climb next week, whilst her other single "Running Back" is still inside the Top 10 at No.7 this week. Also see below about her album debuting this week.
Akon has appeared on the charts during 2008 on four previous occasions, but never as the lead artist, always the guest. But this week his latest single "Right Now (Na Na Na)" debuts at No.41. It's his 14th chart appearance, and was a guest on tracks by Michael Jackson, Lady GaGa, Nelly and Kardinall Offishal during the year.
Last year one album dominated the No.1 position, The Eagles' "Long Road Out of Eden", which stayed at the top for six non-consecutive weeks, and now P!nk's "Funhouse" seems to be doing the same, spending it's fifth week at the top, and also gaining another Platinum status (4x = 280,000+). And also by remaining for a fifth week, she moves into equal second place for longest running album of 2008, now equal with the "Mamma Mia" Soundtrack, and one week behind Jack Johnson's "Sleep Through the Static". With sales for multiple shows of her 2009 tour happening over the past couple of weeks, this album will be around for quite some time yet.
Also gaining an extra Platinum status this week is the album "Only By the Night" by Kings of Leon, which is at No.2 for another week, as too is their single "Sex on Fire", and their other single "Use Somebody" is at No.4 for a second week.
The highest of six new entries to the Top 50 Albums this week is "Chinese Democracy" by Guns N' Roses, coming in at No.3. The sixth album from this former LA Group is their first new material in 15 years, whilst their last appearance on the charts was their 2004 Greatest Hits set. All of their previous albums are listed below... 18-Sep-88*HP-07*WI-85 - Appetite for Destruction 08-Jan-89*HP-18*WI-45 - GN'R Lies 29-Sep-91*HP-02*WI-53 - Use Your Illusion 1 29-Sep-91*HP-01*WI-62 - Use Your Illusion 2 05-Dec-93*HP-01*WI-12 - The Spaghetti Incident 04-Apr-04*HP-06*WI-47 - Greatest Hits
Debuting right behind GN'R at No.4 is the fourth album The Killers, "Day and Age". It debuts higher than their previous album, but not as high as their first two. The lead single from the album is the highest climber on the singles chart, "Human" is up to No.28. Their previous chart efforts have been... 15-Aug-04*HP-01*WI-63 - Hot Fuss 15-Oct-06*HP-02*WI-32 - Sam's Town 25-Nov-07*HP-06*WI-06 - Sawdust
Also debuting with a fourth album is Kanye West, who enters at No.12 with "808's & Heartbreaks". His 2004 album "The College Dropout" did not make the Top 50, but his second album "Late Registration" managed to climb to No.14 during it's 28 week chart run. His September 2007 album "Graduation" debuted and peaked at No.2 in it's first week.
With two singles in the Top 30 this week, Jessica Mauboy debuts at No.16 with "Been Waiting". She has previously charted with a compile of the songs she performed on Australian Idol, that album "The Journey" made it to No.4 in March 2007.
Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" is the highest climbing album of the week, as it's been re-issued with a bonus 8-track set of songs that were left off the album, plus with an upcoming tour in March 2009, it has helped it climb back up 22 places to No.18 this week. The actual 8-track was also issued as a separate release, and "Prospekt's March" makes an entry at No.50 this week.

Bulion, if it isn't too much trouble can you also tell us who the winner is with the most correct guesses in the top 20?
So what I mean by this is if 18 of my predictions are in this weeks top 20 no matter if I have predicted them in the correct positions or not then I would get 18 points?
Again, only if it isn't too much trouble?
I thought it would be interesting as we've all predicted such different songs especially in the lower reaches of the top 20. (Just Dance, Let It Rock, Circus, Gotta Be Somebody, Whatever You Like, Get Shaky, Walking On A Dream, I'm Yours, Love Lockdown, Shut Up & Let Me Go, Fall For You & Burn have all been predicted but not by everybody so we've all predicted quite differently).
Would be interesting to see if someone guessed the correct 20 songs in this weeks top 20.
No predictions as yet from Clinton, Anton, Innocent Eyes. Dottie, l!, Rhys, JMcN, Chri8, StampyPorter and BillBeast. So if any of you wanna predict for today's Countdown, please have them posted by 2:30 AEDST today.

The charts came through late today, so I will fill in the rest of the details soon. But for now that's all I can provide.
Hey Everyone, where at another weeks end... I don't mind if Wes Carr - You goes to #1. Though it will only spend one week on top which means it really doesn't deserve it... also it's now #4 on iTunes which is a sign it could make an early exit. How did everyone go in their predictions this week bulion...?
* After 2 weeks at No.35, the "Kids" are up into the Top 30, and their other single will be up soon.
1 1 FUNHOUSE P!nk 2 2 ONLY BY THE NIGHT Kings Of Leon 3 Ne CIRCUS Britney Spears 4 6 BLACK ICE AC/DC 5 Ne UNESSENTIAL LISTENING Hamish & Andy 6 5 DARK HORSE Nickelback 7 3 CHINESE DEMOCRACY Guns N' Roses 8 4 DAY & AGE The Killers 9 7 HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3: SENIOR YEAR Soundtrack 10 8 THE PROMISE Il Divo
Pink - Funhouse & Kings Of Leon - Only By The Night are the two highest selling albums to date in 2008... It will be a close battle between the two hopefully Pink won't get deja vu... I'm Not Dead had to settle for the #2 album postion due to Michael Buble in the final week of charting...
Other potential high placings i would think are Coldplay, AC/DC, Presets, Mamma Mia Soundtrack, Metallica, Chris Brown, Rihanna & Veronicas.
Brandon just look them up in the site... *Baby One More Time peaked at #2 - platinum 4 times *Oops! I Did It Again peaked at #2 - platinum 3 times *Britney peaked at #4 - platinum twice *In The Zone peaked at #10 - platinum *Greatest Hits peaked at #4 - platinum twice *Blackout peaked at #3 - platinum *Circus debuts at #3
All but one of her albums has gone top 5!! Last edited:
Well this week sees Pink, Fallout Boy, Beyonce, Secondhand Serenade, TI/Rihanna, Natalie Bassightwaite & Kanye West enter the top 100 selling singles list of 2008 over this past week flushing out a Veronicas song and a Kanye West song but not sure which ones.
Rihanna has cropped up numerous times over the past few weeks.
I personally dislike her vocal style... however the way her more upbeat tracks are produced is outstanding... Pon De Replay, SOS, Umbrella, Don't Stop The Music. Are instant classics which will stand the test of time. Her whiny vocie on Unfaithful, Take A Bow, Hate That I Love You leaves much to be desired... But because of her dominance since 2006 which has made her a household name it is annoying people. I have 12 of her songs registered in my data base as proper hits with only We Ride and Rehab not counting....
One thing I have to say I hate about the new charting format is that we don't have time to enjoy new singles because the artists release follow up singles rather quickly. Britney, Coldplay, Rihanna, Beyonce & now Jessica Mauboy. I wish they wouldn't release singles by the same artist so close together.
Good to see The Empire Of The Sun score a new peak. Something different to the #19 or #20 peak that The Presets, Fall Out Boy, Secondhand Serenade, Kevin Ruldolf & Lil Wayne, Flo Rida & Kanye West hold.
* I did ask EMI this week if this had actually been released as a physical single, they said yes, but in a limited amount (which I said was stupid). So if you can't find, don't fret as they said remixes will most likely appear on the next single of this track.
* Henry, Colin, Josh, Nate, Qwerty and Grogsta got this right.
* Brit's had a very busy birthday week, what with launching her new album "Circus", she made a guest appearance at Madonna's "Stick and Sweat" show in LA, appeared at the Bambi Award in Germany, performed on the TV show "Star Academy" in France, and performed "Womanizer" on Britain's "X-Factor" show.
* Colin, Josh, Nate, Sally and Brandon got this one right.
* With the re-entry at No.37 of Rihanna's "Rehab" single, she again has 3 single inside the Top 40. Although T.I. could have a third single charting soon, if his guest spot on Jay-Z's new track "Swagga Like Us" ever makes the charts!!
* Henry, Clinton, BeansterB, Nate, Sally and Rebecca got this right
* Cementing the fact that 2008 is the year of the ladies at No.1, as Lady GaGa spends her 4th week at No.1, and takes the total tally for females at No.1 during 2008 to 37 weeks, the most ever in Australian chart history!!
* 12 out of 14 people predicted this to stay at the top. Colin and Rebecca had it at No.2, everybody else said No.1.
* Henry, Clinton, Nate and Sally were the 4 people who got the entire Top 5 right.
Hi all. I'm back. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU AUSTRALIA. How could you put stupid Gaga at #1 instead of local guy Wes Carr. This country needs to get it's act together man. Interesting gossip bulion I had no idea next week is Jabbas last.
I hope Wes Carr doesn't go to #1. Nothing against him personally. I just hate the show and don't like how the biggest hits of the year are from the Australian Idol contestants. Good on Gaga. It's a clever and great song IMO.
