UK Top 75 (20/09/04)

There's little activity in the lower regions on the top 75 this week, the lowest new entry being at number 61. This single, from Mark B, I'm suspecting, is some sort of import...due to the amount of times I've heard it played on Radio 1. Other entries come from Detroit Cobras at 59, Richard Cartridge at 50 and Nick Drake at 48.

Heading into the top 40, there's a string of new entries from such acts as the Beastie Boys, Interpol, Thirteen Senses and the 22-20s at 37, 36, 35 and 34 respectively.

Dido has another 'unsuccessful' single at 29 with 'Sand in my Shoes' whilst the Popjustice-loved 'Chewing Gum' by Annie makes it in at 25. Cassidy is new at 24 and Bryan Adams is at 21 with his new single 'Open Road'.

Hyped indie-rockers Razorlight have another hit on their hands with 'Vice', which makes it to 18. The Corrs have an entry less inspiring than anything else they've ever done (yes, it's possible), at 16 while there's an unexpected appearance from Status Quo at 14 with 'You'll Come Round'.

Into the top 10, and the first one to make it is new soul-sensation, and Jamie's single of the week - Joss Stone. She's at 9 with latest release 'You Had Me'. So, who's the new top 3?

3) Green Day - American Idiot
My semi-plugged rock anthem of the week.

2) Girls Aloud - Love Machine
I'm sure Leo will think it's a crying shame, but the Girls didn't make it to number one this week...

1) Eric Prydz - Call On Me
Amazing what a video can do for a dirty-minded British public, eh?

It seems we, and everyone else, were gravely misinformed about the release of 'Slash Dot Dash'. Sometimes I wish release schedules were set in stone. It would make our jobs easier, after all...
