UK Top 75 (27/03/05)

Album Charts:
In a shock turn of events, it seems that Tony Christie owes a lot to his chance comedy collaboration with Peter Kay. His 'Definitive Collection' is this week's biggest seller. This means Tony has achieved the rare feat of topping both the albums and singles charts at the same time.

Stereophonics have been displaced to 2, and there are new entries from Basement Jaxx and Queens of the Stone Age at 3 and 4 respectively. After the success of her single, 'They', Jem has climbed triumphantly to 11 with her debut album 'Finally Woken'.

Another new entry comes from Beck, at 15, with 'Guero'. A shock We Love 1997 themed appearance comes from The Verve's 'Urban Hymns', new at 44.

Singles Charts:
Spending another week at the top spot, if you didn't figure it out already, are Tony Christie and Peter Kay with '(Is This The Way To) Amarillo'. Mario has this week's highest new entry with 'Let Me Love You' at 2. 'Candy Shop', the latest single from 50 Cent, charts at 4 while Elvis Presley has his lowest entry position this year at 5 with 'Return To Sender'. Will Smith is new at 6 with 'Switch'.

Natalie Imbruglia returns to the charts with 'Shiver' at 8. Other new entries come from The Faders at 13, Erasure at 15 and British Sea Power at 18.

Kasabian are new at 21 with their re-release of 'Club Foot'. It doesn't even better its original chart position of 20.

The WL single of the week, 'Volcano' by Damien Rice charts at 29, while my other highly recommended singles from Bright Eyes and I Am Kloot chart at 37 and 38 respectively.
