Six weeks of Adele domination on the ARIA Charts, as “Someone like You” becomes the outright second longest running No.1 single this year notching up it’s sixth consecutive week at No.1, whilst her album clocks up twice as much by spending it’s twelfth week at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart. Plus she still retains a second Top 10 entry on both charts, with “Rolling in the Deep” dropping two places to No.7, and further down the charts, she’s at No.49 with “Set Fire to the Rain”.
What looks set to topple Adele’s singles run is the song that shoots into the No.2 position this week, although we’ve had two previous contenders also try and knock her off the top in the form of Lady GaGa last week and Christina Perri the week prior. “Moves like Jagger” for Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera leaps four spots to No.2, giving Maroon their highest placed single since the No.1 “She Will Be Loved” (5 weeks from Sept 2004) and it becomes Christina’s fourth No.2 single (Genie in a Bottle, peaked Oct 1999, Car Wash in Oct 2004 and Candyman peaked in May 2007). The song has gone to No.1 in South Korea so far, but is at No.2 in The Netherlands, New Zealand and Top 10 in the U.S. and Italy.
Christina Perri stays at No.3 for a second week with “Jar of Hearts”, and also holding steady at No.4 is the former No.1 “Party Rock Anthem” for LMFAO. But leaping into the Top 10 from No.12 to No.5 this week is Gotye and his new track “Somebody That I Used to Know”, which has also helped his previous album to a new peak this week (more on that in the albums section below). Lady GaGa doubles-back on herself with the track “The Edge of Glory” which leapt into the Top 10 three weeks ago at No.6, then climbed to No.2 last week, now its back down to No.6 this week.
The other new entry to the Top 10 is Nicki Minaj and her “Super Bass” which climbs three places to No.8 this week to become her first SOLO Top 10 entry and second overall, as she featured on David Guetta’s No.6 track “Where Them Girls at” (TW-23). “Marry You” from Bruno Mars spends a fifth week in the Top 10, but the song has only charted at the two same numbers for those five weeks, 9-8-9-8 and now back to No.9 this week. And holding onto No.10 in its tenth week within the Top 100 is Jason DeRulo’s “Don’t Wanna Go Home”.
NEW PEAKS & MOVERS: Nicole Scherzinger could possibly score her first Top 10 solo hit next week, as her latest track (sounding very Rihanna) “Right There” is up to No.13 this week. “Little Bad Girl” for David Guetta reached No.15 in it’s second week on the charts, and this week it reclaims that position, up four places from last week. Calvin Harris scores his first Top 20 SOLO appearance, by bounding up eight places to a new peak of No.16 with his track “Bounce” (his contribution to Dizzee Rascal’s “Dance Wiv’ Me” reached No.13 in October 2008). The last new Top 20 peak is Beyonce’s “Best Thing I Never Had” which is up a place to No.17. Chris Brown and Justin Beiber’s pairing on the song “Next 2 You” is up four places this week to No.22, but up ten places to No.24 is current guest tourist (with Enrique) Pitbull and his new track “Rain Over Me” featuring Marc Anthony as guest vocalist. Also up ten places, and into the Top 30 is Canada’s These Kids Wear Crowns and their track “Jumpstart”, which is at No.29 this week. The last two new peaks come from Aloe Blacc and his track “I Need a Dollar” which is up three places to No.37 and breaking into the Top 40 at No.38 (up eight places) is Benny Benasi’s “Cinema”.
Jessica Mauboy scores the highest new entry of the week as her new track “Inescapable” debuts at No.20. It’s to be the fourth single from her “Get ‘em Girls” album which is being re-issued August 12th as a bonus two disc deluxe edition featuring this new track plus remixes of her previous tracks and more new material including a duet with Stan Walker. This new single becomes Jess’s tenth charting single and instantly becomes her ninth Top 20 hit.
In July 2009 Michael Jackson’s passing caused a storm of his older material to re-enter the charts, helped by the fact that his entire back catalogue was instantly available for downloading, so now any act that passes away can have their material in the charts the following week. Saturday the 23rd of August saw the tragic passing of Amy Winehouse at the age of 27, waaaayyy before her time in my opinion. Her passing has caused four of her songs to enter the charts this week, ALL instantly to new peaks. First up is her signature tune “Rehab” (HP-35, peaked late Feb 2008 after Grammy wins, peaked No.11 on the DL Chart in Sept 2007) which this week re-enters at No.27. Her other re-entering song is “Valerie” (HP-75, April 2008, the Mark Ronson version hit No.36 on the DL Chart in March 2008) at No.34. In the lower 50 this week she enters for the first time with two tracks from her second album, the title track “Back to Black” debuts at No.56, and another track from that album, “You Know I’m No Good” is in at No.89.
Australian rock group Cold Chisel’s back catalogue of twelve albums (studio and live) were re-issued last week (all re-mastered through Warner Australia), which means that for the first time their songs are available to download, which this week has caused four of their singles to re-enter the singles chart. Their first (and most recognized) single hit the chart charts in June 1978 and climbed to No.41. That track “Khe Sanh” re-enters at No.40 this week scoring a new peak in the process. The group’s last official single (during their heyday) was “Flame Trees” (HP-26, entry Aug 1984), and that song re-enters at No.54. The bands first Top 10 single was “Cheap Wine” (HP-8, peaked July 1980) which comes back in at No.76, and lastly the only song of theirs to reach No.1 (albeit by another act, Cosima in August 2004), “When the War is Over” is back in No.82 (HP-25, peaked Sept.1982). A lot of their albums re-enter this week, so I will do table for those below.
Lower 50: Three songs score new peaks in the lower half of the chart this week, the first is Lupe Fiasco’s “Out of My Head” which is up four places to a new peak of No.52. Selena Gomez and The Scene are up five places to No.59 with their new single “Love You like a Love Song”, and leaping up twenty-eight places to No.69 is the new Eskimo Joe single “Love is a Drug”.
In late August of 1996, UK singer Mark Morrison scored two weeks at No.2 with his debut single here “Return of the Mack”. This week a cover (?) version of the song now entitled “The Mack” enters at No.68 performed by West LA rapper Mann (Dijon Thames Shariff) and featuring guest vocals from Snoop Dogg and Iyaz. The song has reached the Top 30 in the UK (HP-28), and is his second successful single there after “Buzzin’”(HP-6 in UK, No.13 in Ireland and No.61 in the US). Both tracks from his debut album “Mann’s World”.
The finale of the Australian comedy show Angry Boys occurred this week (as too did the DVD release), and now the shows resident rapper S.mouse scores his second chart entry by debuting at No.70 with “Squashed Nigga”, whilst his first track “Slap My Elbow” is one place lower at No.71, plus the soundtrack from the show enters at No.75.
The eighth single and third here in Australia for Demi Lovato debuts at No.92 entitled “Skyscraper”. The song has reached the Top 10 in the US and Top 20 in Canada, and her previous chart entries here were “This is Me” (with Joe Jonas for the Camp Rock film, HP-46, Oct 2008) and “La La Land” (HP-76, May 2009).
The last two new entries of the week come from local lads, the first is from Shannon Noll who enters at No.95 with “Switch Me On”. It’s his first new material in almost three years, as he hit No.54 in Sept 2008 with “Summertime”, and this new track becomes his thirteenth chart entry. Cody Simpson debuts at No.97 with his second single “All Day” which recently charted in the Canada reaching No.79. His other chart entry was “iYiYi” with Flo Rida on guest vocals which achieved its peak of No.19 this week last year (Aug 2010).
Adele’s “21” spends a twelfth week at No.1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, and it now becomes the equal fourth longest running No.1 for this century. It ties with James Blunt’s “Back to Bedlam” which amassed twelve weeks from three runs at the top (four weeks from 29-Aug-2005, five weeks from 9-Jan-2006 and another three weeks from 17-Apr-2006). The three albums above her that have scored more weeks are P!nk’s “Greatest Hits… So Far” (13 weeks), “Only By the Night” for Kings of Leon (14 weeks) which are both within range for her to match or beat, but the No.1 by a long margin is Delta Goodrem’s “Innocent Eyes” which has the equal fourth longest run at the top in Australia (1965-2011), 29 weeks in total.
Lady GaGa’s “Born This Way” spends a fourth non-consecutive week at No.2, and Adele’s first album “19” drops back a place to No.4 this week. Also falling down one place each is LMFAO’s “Sorry for Party Rocking” to No.5, Bruno Mars down to No.8 with his “Doo-Wops and Holligans” and Bad Meets Evil’s “Hell: The Sequel” to No.10. Christina Perri’s debut album “lovestrong” is down two places to No.7 and down three places to No.9 are The Foo Fighters and their latest “Wasting Light”.
The Living End score their fifth (of seven) highest new entry debuts of their career, as their sixth studio album “The Ending is Just the Beginning Repeating” debuts at No.3 this week. This is the bands second album on their new label Dew Process, their previous album “White Noise” coming in at No.2 in late July 2008. The bands entire album chart history is listed below, with the asterix (*) indicating which albums debuted as the highest new entries of the week…

Over on the singles chart, we saw four Amy Winehouse singles enter the charts this week, well over on the albums chart, she scores three entries from her two albums released so far. Her five-time Grammy Award winning second album “Back to Black” re-enters at No.6, two places lower than it’s peak of No.4, which it took 53 weeks to reach. Originally the album entered the charts on March 5, 2007 at No.20, peaking at No.19 the following week, but over the course of the next year the album next peaked at No.14 in October 2007, and by the time it had notched up a year on the charts it finally hit the Top 10, peaking at No.4 just after her Grammy wins in March 2008 spending seven weeks within the Top 10, and as of July 2010 the album had accumulated 101 weeks within the Top 100. Spurred on by her second albums success, her debut set “Frank” re-entered the charts in March 2008 spending its six broken weeks in the chart by eventually peaking at No.68, and it also re-enters the chart this week, coming at No.23. And now a double pack of those two albums lands in between the two re-entries. The “Frank” / “Back to Black” double-pack debuts at No.18 this week.
Sydney duo Pnau debut at No.13 with their fourth album “Soft Universe”, and also scores their highest charting album in the process. Their first album “Sambanova” peaked at No.39 in June 2000, their second set “Again (Oct 2003) failed to chart, but their third album “Pnau” (Nov 2007) reached No.31 in late April of 2008. During their third and fourth album, member Nick Littlemore teamed up with Luke Steele to form the successful Empire of the Sun, with other band-member Peter Mayes being the albums producer.
As on the singles chart, Cold Chisel also enter with a mass of re-issued/re-mastered albums, nine in total. So rather than listing each album separately, I have prepared a table of their previous album entries, plus where they sit on the album charts this week (TW column)…

Perth’s John Butler Trio score a third live album entry this week, as their new live set “Live at Red Rocks” debuts at No.22. Their first live one was “Living 2001-2002” which debuted and peaked at No.6 in February 2003, and then in December 2005 “Live at St. Gallen” debuted and peaked at No.47. Another local act, The Ten Tenors debut at No.24 with their tenth album, a double collection of songs called “Double Platinum”, released to coincide with their upcoming August tour of Australia kicking off in Melbourne on August 5th. Of their five albums to chart here, this is their fourth Top 30 entry, of those two have reached No.8, “Tenology: The Best so Far” (Aug 2005) and “Here’s to the Heroes” (Sep 2006).
NEW PEAKS & MOVERS: The fifty-three place jump for Cold Chisel’s “East” to No.19 is the biggest climbing album of the week, but scoring new peaks are the “Winners & Losers” Soundtrack, up twelve places to No.27. Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday” climbs seven places to land inside the Top 30 at No.29. And thanks to his new Top 5 single, Gotye’s previous album “Like Drawing Blood” is up twenty-five places to No.32, beating the albums previous peak of No.36 which achieved after it won an ARIA award in early November of 2007. Lastly Enrique’s album “Euphoria” is up twenty-two spots to No.37 thanks to his new national tour which started this past week.
Lower 50: The fifth album for 3 Doors Down almost matches the peak of their two previous albums here. “Time of My Life” debuts at No.58, whilst their fourth set “3 Doors Down” debuted at No.57 and eventually took eleven weeks to peak at No.55 in 2008, their third album “Seventeen Days” debuted and peaked at No.54. Their first two albums both faired better, with album number one “The Better Life” reaching No.16 in late March of 2001, and they then reached No.8 in early February 2004 with their second album “Away from the Sun”.
With two singles hitting the charts from the hit TV Series ‘Angry Boys’, the soundtrack from the show debuts at No.75 this week. And the last new entry comes from We the Kings whose third album “Sunshine State of Mind” becomes their first chart entry here, debuting at No.95 this week.

So Amy Winehouse's version of Valerie without Mark Ronson is the one that's charting? That's silly Also I'd have rathered Back to Black & You Know I'm No Good in over those two. However, go Cold Chisel for a new peak! Don't care about Enrique's song and haven't heard the other entry yet.
I really don't understand why they didn't let it debut last week-that is Jessica Mauboy,but oh well.A solid top 20 debut this week.Should get even higher in the weeks to come with Jess performing ''Inescapable'' on tuesday on Australia's got talent,which is getting 2 million plus viewers.
This isn't the official top 50 but this weeks digital sales.
I question how Mr Saxobeat has missed the top 50 this week and how JLo is as high as #33?

Khe Sanh reaching the Top 40 about 33 years later is a very interesting event in history. So a mere promotion of a re-released catalogue in 2011 (in the internet age) can exceed the weekly popularity of an original release (physical sales) of a single. The fact that the song has since become a classic obviously helps. A quick look at all the 'old' releases in a current itunes Top 200 (old being > 1 year) shows this is constantly happening. I'm sure there is no lack in depth of quality musical releases today, so does this mean many decent songs are simply 'lost in the woods' (those songs that would otherwise occupy the Top 200 spots taken by these older songs)? This has probably always happened, but is it happening to an even greater extent now? Feel free to comment.
It's definitely happening to a greater extent now. Songs used in movies or TV shows, performed on talent quest shows, used briefly in ads, from an artist who has recently died or getting a re-release are all impacting the chart. I think it's definitely costing a lot of songs a place in the charts. Quite often a song from an unestablished artist will sit just outside the iTunes top 100, while there are multiple "old" songs in there blocking it.
@Hijinx: Search for the last thing I had to search for, but replace the second word with my most common typo.
