Kings of Leon stay atop the Australian singles chart for a fourth week with their "Sex on Fire" single. It's now the longest running No.1 single by a rock group since Silverchair's "Straight Lines" (4 weeks, March-April 2007), but still has a way to go to beat Hinder's "Lips of an Angel", which was the No.1 before The 'Chairs, spending 7 weeks at the top. Their other charting single "Use Somebody" moves up three places to No.9 this week to give them two Top 10 singles.
The biggest climber within the Top 10 jumps from No.9 to No.3, "Poker Face" by Lady GaGa, helped by a boost in both physical and digital sales (10 to 4 downloads), which causes the rest of the songs from 4 to 8 to all move down one place from last weeks positions. The other new Top 10 entry is the biggest climb within the Top 50, The Pussycat Dolls' "I Hate This Part", which jumps 10 places to No.10 to give the girl-troupe their seventh Top 10 single (out of eight releases).
The other big climbers includes Pink's "Sober", which she performed live on Australian Idol on Monday night, and the physical of this is due at the end of November, but will most likely be another Top 10 single for her next week, but it moves from 16 to 11 this week. After 3 weeks on the charts, "Alive" by Natalie Bassingthwaighte jumps up 15 places to No.24, helped by her promoting around the country, physical is out next week. But the biggest rising single is the new No.1 U.S. single, T.I. and Rihanna's "Live Your Life" which jumps 16 spots to No.25 this week.
Nickelback have not been in the Australian Top 50 since December 2006 (see below), and now after three weeks of downloads, the combined sales have helped their new single "Gotta Be Somebody" to debut at No.18 this week. It's their 10th Top 50 single since September 2001, and this is the first single from their new album "Dark Horse" which is released next week.

International DJ Ian Carey, who was here in April for the 'Climate Music Festival', jumps into the Top 50 at No.44 with his first Top 50 single "Get Shaky". He has worked on Soul Providers in the past, and is a major remixer for DeFected Records in Europe.
Pink spends a second week at No.1 in Australia with her "Funhouse" album, equaling the two weeks her "I'm Not Dead" (No.19 this week) spent the two times it reached the top. She has four possible competitors for next weeks No.1 spot, il Divo, Enya, Human Nature and Christina Aguilera, or she could create her own new record, and stay at the top for a third week.
The entire Top 4 stays stable this week, but debuting at No.5 is "High School Musical 3: Senior Year", the third in the High School Musical franchise, and the movie hasn't even hit cinema's yet, due out in Australia on December 4th. The previous two sets performed so...
25-Jun-06*HP-01*WI-29 - High School Musical (3 weeks at No.1) 23-Sep-07*HP-04*WI-23 - High School Musical 2 01-Nov-08*HP-05*WI-01*- High School Musical 3: Senior Year
With Chris Brown and Rihanna touring the country together at the moment, it has helped Chris' album climb back into the Top 10, at No.10, and its now spending it's 51st week in the Top 50. Rihanna's album is back up 2 places to No.16 too. The biggest climber of the week is Celine Dion's new set, "My Love: Ultimate Essential Collection" which climbs 12 places to No.24 this week.
The Potbelleez have their third single "Trouble, Trouble" inside the Top 100 this week, and they climb back up to No.49 with "Don't Hold Back", and now their debut album enters the Top 50 at No.17.
The fifth album for The Ten Tenors enters at No.27, "Nostalgica". It's their third Top 50 album, having reached No.8 with the two albums "Tenology" (2005) and "Here's to the Heroes" (2006).
Chris Isaak had a horse-race named after him, and is in Australia to visit the racing carnival and promote his new album, "Live in Australia", which debuts at No.29 this week. His former No.1 "Best of" also climbs back into the Top 50, at No.39 this week.

With Beyonce, the digital version of Single Ladies is finally out (as per the release of the physical single as well). Will If I Were A Boy and Single Ladies be reported separately on the digital track chart? If so, since the physical single is combined, will be it reported as a single song on the combined singles chart? I hope it is, otherwise it'll be a bit silly.
I went on a cd shopping spree today at JB Hifi Perth and i bought many albums and physical singles.
I bought the "If i were a boy" physical single, $3.99 and the tracklisting is:
1.If i were a boy (album version) 2.Single Ladies (Put a ring on it)
"Single Ladies", is a b-side only track, i guess. Who knows if a physical single will be released??
Apart from Beyonce, i also purchased the T.I feat. Rihanna physical single, $3.99 and Christina Aguilera's "A Decade of Hits" cd plus bonus dvd edition. It's awesome!! $24.95
i watched the dvd, and the "Dirrty" video is uncensored, you can see the chaps and all. "Dynamite" is rumoured to be the 2nd single off the album. i also purchased Leona Lewis "Spirit" deluxe edition with bonus dvd, this is the 2nd version of the album which i bought and it is so worth it!! $21.99
I asked the staff to find me the "Lost!" cd single by Coldplay, it hasn't arrived yet, so then i decided to buy the 4 cd's that i had, then travel to Big W.
I went to Big W Spearwood, and to my surprise, they don't sell cd singles anymore, the Top 10 was gone, completely!!
So then i didn't leave the store empty handed, i bought Christmas albums from Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera, both on special $9.95, nice and cheap. JbHifi and Kmart are the only places to find physical cd singles in Perth.
I have my final exams tommorow, and they finish at 12:00pm, then afterwards i'm going to prepare myself for the Rihanna and Chris Brown concert, which starts at 7:30pm, a perfect way to have fun after a stressful two and half years of University.
But before the concert commences, i will do some star sightings, as rumours are going around that Rihanna and Chris will go shopping in Perth City, as well as a cruise on the river, they both might go to restaurants and sightseeing with their entourage.
Rihanna and Chris have arrived in Perth, for the final show of their tour. Despite Rihanna's health problems, the show will go on. Tonight they might go out, i think they are staying at Burswood hotel.
Geez Brandon, for a bloke u have an odd taste in music. I've never known a guy to buy Christmas Albums before. Enjoy the concert. Rihanna is rubbish, I've seen her before when Jay Z came out a few years back. Chris Brown is meant to be really good. You'll have to let me know what you think bout Christina Aguilera's Greatest Hits and if it's worth buying?
Christina Aguilera's Greatest hits cd is awesome, but it would be even better if it had remixes. It annoys me how there are songs missing like "Can't hold us down, ""The Voice Within", which were both commercially released.
There are only 10 videos, some of them i have yet to watch like "Come on over", but there are 4 music videos missing, especially the "Lady Marmalade" video, "Nobody wants to be lonely", The Voice Within",and "Can't hold us down".
It's definitely a great cd for Xtina fans, and since i have her first self-titled album on cassette, it's a relief to have those first four singles on cd after all these years.
Buying the "A Decade of Hits'"compilation is a great way to remember the past 10 years of Christina Aguilera.

RE-ENTRY... Top 50. Chris Isaak - Wicked Game.
**NOTES** --> It was a tough choice of who was going to be placed on top. If Beyonce - If I Were A Boy & Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) are combined then she will be #1. However Australia still does not have certain chart rules like overseas. Whereas a B Side cannot chart in the same countdown as the A Side. For this reason i placed Lady GaGa at #1. Also the B side as a new top 50 entry.

Well, last night i went to the Chris Brown and Rihanna concert, at the Burswood Dome, Perth.
It was the only concert i attended this year. The stadium was packed, every seat was full!! and i stood in the middle B section, it was standing all the way to the front. I was situated about 35 metres away from the stage, and there was a lot of people around me.
Chris Brown appeared on stage at around 7:55pm, and he was amazing live, showcasing his brilliant dance moves, it was awesome!!, he can dance!!, i was very impressed. He performed 12 songs in total. including Run It, With You, Gimme That and Forever.
He stole the show, with his dancing skills, he owned the stage, and there was a lot of fan interaction, and to my surprise Chris allowed 10 fans on stage from the front moshpit area, and they all danced together to Metro Station's "Shake It", songs by Pink and Katy Perry were also played briefly.
The fans were escorted off the stage, by 3 bodyguards. Afterwards, Chris walked near the front row, to say hello to the screaming fans. A lot of fan interaction, but overall Chris put so much effort into his performances. My rating 9 out of 10.
Chris Brown's show concluded at 9:00pm.
Fans had to wait an extra 50 minutes, so that changes could be made to the stage and lighting. Rihanna, was late on stage, just like a diva should be. Her show commenced at 9:50pm, she was high on a platform above the stage, and opened her show with "Disturbia".
She wore a black catsuit, similar to Lady Gaga's, with matching black boots, and a very revealing skin tight fishnet stockings. She looked very sexy and curvy.
I was really starstruck to see her on stage, even though i was 35 metres away from the stage, it was the closest i will ever get to Rihanna, in my lifetime i think.
Rihanna performed 12 songs, including the mega hits Sos, Pon de Replay, Unfaithful, Don't Stop the Music and then finished the show with "Umbrella", remixed with "Cinderella", and was joined on stage by Chris Brown.
She thanked the crowd on several occasions, and changed costumes 3 times. There was little interaction with the crowd at the front near the stage, but she was very professional on stage, and put so much effort into her performances. At the end of the show she waved thanked the audience, waved goodbye, then fell behind the stage, Chris was laughing, then he waved goodbye and it was over.
The only thing bad about the experience, it was very squashed, a lot of people around me. I felt trapped, and i couldn't move or wave my hands, not even dance!! It was so overcrowded, not enough room, and it was hot. I just wish if there was more space, next time i will get to the concert 6 hours earlier, so that i get to stand in a good spot, near the rail.
I'm curious but how low is Gabriella Cilmi's "Save the Lies" sitting at (if at all) in the Top 100. I thought the past week she had a physical release for the song yet she is not even on the Top 50 Physical Singles Chart.
Also I think Beanster was meaning that you must have made a mistake for the position it re-entered as you put #40, clearly it did not re-enter the Top 50. For the position you placed it in between the re-entries at #96 and #98 I assumed it re-entered at #97.

Hi Gang, i just have to say this as it is frustrating me more and more...
This site is the australian charts.. i don't care what's happening in overseas charts. just here that's what makes our charts so good. Also the amount of threads is massive and half of it is pure rubbish... i now have to sift through rubbish to find the worthwhile reading. [i try to read all posts] Brandon i really like your input but it is never ending and just nonsense.
I just want to recap on what's happening or has happend on the australian charts.
Nate, I am with you and agree with you 100%. I do like Brandon's imput especially in the Itunes section & weekly chartifacts section because he has some great discussions and interesting comments but I think this site should be purely for the Aussie charts. There are alot of threads and I too like to read all of them but some of late have been pure rubbish. I can sort of see how all the Britney attention bugged a few people... Even I am over Britney Spears and her Womanizer and I haven't even heard it that much to really be sick of it.
ahem.... I don't think we're contributing any solice by complaining on this thread guys!!! Bulion is the only person who can clean this thread to keep it strictly relevant to the topic.
@ Brandon I'm sorry mate but you have posted two threads reguarding your outing to the Rihanna/Chris Brown concert!!!! Are you trying to get attention by doing this? Or is it plain ignorance?
On the topic of threads... I think we have to remember also that because there are so many more people using this site now, we wouldn't want to start restricting what can and can't be talked about! However I do believe the site could be moderated a bit better to keep topics in there certain threads. If we ALL kept that in mind, I think we'd be going down the right path.
I think it would be a good idea, to have a separate thread about called "General Discussion" or "Personal CD & DVD Reviews ".
Yeah, i agree with Jack and Beanster but, the only reason why i post my comments about my shopping trips, and concert experiences, is because a lot of discussion happens in this thread, so that i can chat to more people.
In the Itunes, Radio Airplay and Overseas chart threads, very little discussion goes on, but is still like to post updates, to help us out with our end of week predictions.
It's just an idea, maybe the staff or Bulion could make a new thread please? when you are ready.
Just what we need, a new thread. I got Steffen to increase the number of "new threads" on the left margin to 10...and that was still not enough. My post was out of that list the next day after posting. The new stuff I read in the other threads was the same thing over and over from week to week.
Hi All! Newbie here, just found this forum today. I've been following the charts since 1992 (7 years old) when I used to get up at 5am on a Saturday morning to watch the Top 50 on Rage. Just having a look around to get used to it all, but thought I'd jump into the guessing game:

Metro Station should drop rapidly soon. So What might also suffer the same fate. The Kings may not be #1 again because it's been there for a while. Nickelback should remain in the Top 25, hopefully Top 20. I fear Poker Face or Beyonce will be at the top. God help us if either of them are.
And if it were up to me, Use Somebody would succeed Sex on Fire (neither song is the best one on the album, but meh... gotta work with they release as singles). But then again, so much would be different if it were up to me...

hey hey, and thank you... i have no idea what i got right but we shall see... hopefully something has come from nowhere and kept "poker face" outta the top spot but, alas... i do not think this has happened
* This song was on the chart for a single week back in mid-October, coming in at No.40. Now the third single from their "Oracular Spectacular" climbs back into the 40 at No.38, with the CD Single being released next week
I was gone for a while. I come back to see Get Shaky, Kids, and Love Lockdown are moving up! Awesome! Too bad Rhianna has yet another boring song enter the charts. And it is soooo tasty to see Shake It finally get it's butt whipped!
I think Beyonce might not be entering due to the chart rules. Because "If I Were a Boy" is classified as the lead track, therefore "Single Ladies" is a B-Side single and ineligible to chart on its own. We will see it enter the Digital Top 40 I suspect. Mind you it could be because Sony are not including the track as well.
hi everyone, T.I. and Rihanna will be the biggest mover and inside top 10. i couldn’t believe i got 10 this week and won second week in row..did not expect that. Looking at my prediction so far, i still haven't got right 1 yet.
10 up 15 from 25 - Live Your Life - T.I. feat Rihanna
* Leapfrogging over his No.13 single "Whatever You Like", the second single from T.I.'s "Paper Trails" album gives him his first SOLO Top 10 single, although he did appear as guest vocalist on Justin Timberlake's No.3 single from Nov.2006 "My Love".
* This single is at No.1 for a third week in the US, and is currently Top 5 in Ireland, Canada and New Zealand.
Henry, Clint, Colin, Rebecca and Grogsta got No.9 right this week.
1 (1) - Funhouse - P!nk 2 (3) - Only By the Night - Kings of Leon 3 (2) - Black Ice - AC/DC 4 (5) - High School Musical 3 - Soundtrack 5 (4) - Apocalypto - The Presets 6 (Ne)- The Promise - il Divo 7 (Ne)- And Winter Came... - Enya 8 (Ne)- Keeps Gettin' Better: A decade of Hits - Christina Aguilera 9 (7) - The Fame - Lady GaGa 10 (8)- Gurrumul - Geoffrey Yunupingu
* Lady GaGa becomes the only act during 2008 to have 2 No.1 singles.
* And by climbing to No.1, she helps break a 35 year-old chart feat. This is now the 34rd week of this year that a female performer has held on to the top of the charts, beating the 1973 record of 33 weeks. That's one-hell of a lady (gaga).
