1. The Fear - Lily Allen
Lily Allen tops the UK singles chart for a third week with "The Fear," making it now her longest running #1 hit. It's the third single in a row to top the chart for 3 weeks, following Alexandra Burke's "Hallelujah" and Lady GaGa's "Just Dance." While the competition heats up for the next chart--with new singles out by U2, Beyonce, Britney Spears and Gary Go--I wouldn't rule out a fourth week at the top for Allen. She reigns supreme on the UK airplay chart for a third week as well and debuts at #1 on the albums chart.
3. Breathe Slow - Alesha Dixon
Alesha Dixon climbs two spots to #3, likely the peak position for "Breathe Slow," which got its CD single release last week.
7. Single Ladies - Beyonce
Back up two spots to #7 is Beyonce's "Single Ladies." The track has charted no higher, but next weekend could benefit from its full CD release. Expect it to go top 5.
8. Omen - The Prodigy
Remember in the '90s when techno was going to be the next big thing? It never happened in the US (not really), but it did make some headway in the UK, particularly with The Prodigy, who had two #1 hits in the late '90s, "Firestarter" and "Breathe." While they haven't been very active in the '00s, they are putting out their fifth album soon and "Omen" is their first top 10 hit in 7 years.
21. I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris - Morrissey
Fans hoping this would be Morrissey's big comeback will be disappointed; however, it is the former Smiths member's 34th top 40 hit, which isn't bad.
40. Spaceman - The Killers
If this goes no higher I'm going to be very disappointed. This a really fantastic song--better, in my opinion, than "Human," which was a huge hit. This deserves to be as well.
