BOTA remains at number one
BOTA (Baddest Of Them All) gets a second week atop the singles chart. Yungblud gets his second number one album.

In keeping with the national mood, this week’s commentary is restricted to the bare facts of this week’s chart. While there has been no chart show on radio 1, the charts have still been published.

Eliza Rose and Interplanetary Criminal stay at number one with BOTA (Baddest Of Them All), granting them a second week at the top. David Guetta and Bebe Rexha climb five places to number two with I’m Good (Blue). OneRepublic’s I Ain’t Worried climbs to number three in its thirteenth week in the top forty. KSI and Tom Grennan climb to number four with Not Over Yet and Harry Styles’ Late Night Talking jumps to number five.

The highest newcomer to the chart is a re-entry for Tom Odell’s Another Love, The song, a number ten hit in 2013), has been gaining popularity on TikTok and now returns to the top forty at number twenty. As with the recent re-entry from Metallica it benefits from the more generous interpretation of the rules (triggered by the huge success of Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill) in allowing songs over three years old to be placed back on the Standard Chart Ratio (allowing its streams to have the same value as most other songs in the chart) in particular circumstances.

After the Arctic Monkeys (and Ghost) had new entries last week, another rock band (although the term is used a little more loosely here) have a new entry this week. Like the Arctic Monkeys, The 1975 are one of the few “alternative” bands still to be in with a good chance of getting at least one hit single out of a new album. They enter at number 29 with You.

Harry Styles gets another top forty hit from his Mercury Prize-nominated Harry’s House album as Matilda enters at number 37. The prize was due to be awarded last night (Thursday) but that has now been postponed to a date yet to be announced.

Lizzo enters at number 38 with 2 Be Loved (Am I Ready), one palace ahead of Bugzy Malone and Mist’s Energy.

In the albums chart, Yungblud gets his second number one with his third release, also called Yungblud. He finishes ahead of Megadeth who had their fifth top forty album in the year Yungblud was born. The Sick The Dying And The Dead, their sixteenth studio album, enters at number three.

Harry’s House is at number twwo with Ed Sheeran’s = at four. The Weeknd’s hits package The Highlights climbs one plca to number five. Last week’s chart-topper, Muse’s Will Of The People, falls to number eight.

While Keane are still officially in existence, singer Tom Chaplin continues to pursue a separate solo career. He enters at number nineteen with his fourth solo set (including a Christmas album) Midpoint.

In their 1970s creative heyday, Genesis gained a reputation as a great live band, always guaranteed to put on a spectacular show. They released two live albums in that decade including the double album Seconds Out in 1977, by which time Phil Collins had replaced Peter Gabriel on vocals. The band;s guitarist Steve Hackett has released a number of live albums comprising his versions of Genesis songs and now he has released his own version of Seconds Out with very similar artwork. Like the original it includes songs such as Squonk, Firth Of Fifth and Supper’s Ready in all its 25 minutes of glory. The original version reached number four; Hackett’s version is at number 28.

Nina Nesbitt sneaks in at number 39 with Alskar.

Tom Jones’ Surrounded By Time, a number one album last year, re-enters at number thirteen after the veteran singer performed a song from it in the opening show of this year’s series of The Voice. Foo Fighters’ Greatest Hits returns to the top forty at number eighteen. This week saw a tribute concert at Wembley Stadium for their drummer Taylor Hawkins who died earlier this year.
