UK Top 75 - (14/11/04)

Welcome to our weekly top 75 UK chart rundown, covering all the new entries and any other interesting goings on in the chart. This week, we've also added a handy link to the top 75 at Launch for you to check out the other movers and shakers.

Ed Rush & Optical are brand new at 69, House of Pain are at 65 and Echelon chart at 57. Just lurking outside the top 40 are LCD Soundsystem (52), Dears (49) and Prince, who is at 43 with 'Cinnamon Girl'.

In the lower regions of the top 40 this week are several new entries, coming from the likes of the Finn Brothers (31), Mase (29), and Twista ft. R Kelly at 28. It may interest you to know that R Kelly features no less than three times on this week's chart. Why is it we can't seem to get rid of him?

Another person we'd like to get rid of is Jamie Cullum. He's new at 20 this week with 'Everlasting Love'. Steriogram chart at 19 this week, rather lower than we would have hoped, with their single 'Walkie Talkie Man'. Nas is new at 18 with his blues/rap crossover, 'Bridging the Gap'. Cheesey dance music is back in the chart once again, this time in the form of Eye Opener, with 'Hungry Eyes', new at 16.

The 'novelty' single from Dizzee Rascal, 'Dream', charts at a respectable 14 this week, while V have their third top 20 hit in the form of comedy-boyband-ballad, 'You Stood Up'.

The top 10 is hardly buzzing this week with only 3 new entries of varying quality. 'Out of the Blue' by Delta Goodrem isn't too bad at all, but to be honest it's just a bit of a rehash of all she's done already. It enters this week's chart at 9. Speaking of rehashes, Blue are new at 4. The less said, the better.

Not a huge surprise then - U2 are number one, being the first single to be number one on the download chart, before topping the singles chart too!

Look out for our weekly singles features, later in the week. We are also planning a review of Keane, live at Cambridge Corn Exchange and our verdict on Band Aid 20!
