UK Download Top 20 (27/10/04)

New Entries:
New this week is 'Wishing On A Star' by Paul Weller, which scrapes in at 18. Top 5 single 'Millionaire' by Kelis Andre 3000 is also new at 11.

Big Climbers:
'Flashdance' by Deep Dish climbs a massive 8 places to reach the dizzy heights of number 5, while WL favourite 'Mary' by the Scissor Sisters moves up 10 places to 10! Girls Aloud with 'Love Machine' also climbs 4 places to 13.

Longest Runners (9 weeks):
'American Idiot' by Green Day and 'She Will Be Loved' by Maroon 5 both make a massive 9 weeks on the chart!

Number One:
Mouldy Looking Stain at One Big Weekend - we like Aled best.And yes, with the excessive plugging it has received on EVERY Chris Moyles show this and last week, Mouldy Looking Stain have clinched the top spot from U2, rather undeservedly, this blogger thinks. 'Dogs Don't Kill People (Wabbits Do)' is a not-very-funny parody of the similarly titled song by Goldie Lookin' Chain, instead starring Chris, Comedy Dave and the rest of the breakfast crew. Dressed up. Sure, the majority of the money is going to Comic Relief, but it's gone beyond a joke. We preferred the one entitled 'Peter Andre'.

Edit: After several searches related to the Stain, we have decided to helpfully add a link to somewhere you can download the track. We'd also like to say we do listen to the Chris Moyles show, and enjoy it, and that we're just not fans of this song. We also think Aled is great.
