Re: Did you see me coming? Midweeks

If of interest, a guy on the Buzzjack mw chart thread poster called Dave Taylor believes PSB are at #16 (and top 20 = IMPRESSIVE imo given current chart nature, overall indications for interest in the song and U2 2nd single landing outside top 40 etc) We think from another chart (unofficially) PSBs ...

Re: Yes / Love - International chart #'s

....tho I just relay whatever info I can from the chart czars over there. Thanks NJTom. U R very modest - "just" (to quote yourself) relaying information is a valuable contribution (it won't do it by itself at least someone has to make the effort to transfer/repost it) - since if information isn't ...

Re: Do you see another chart disaster coming?

Well its good to see that many you R up to date with how the chart trends of today and have realistic expectation for the single + rationalized its signifcant to PSB existence. So U will be able to avoid excessive dissapointment which would otherwise ( if only temporally) disrupt your enjoyment of P...

Re: Yes / Love - International chart #'s

Are we to take it from the silence that it's out of the British top 200? (assume U mean "Yes" ?) Maybe not. I got this from the UKmix PSB thread - i'm sure it a reference to 'Yes' (?)- it was posted last friday; link; http://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=59684&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=...

Quote from: DaveGrimsby on April 06, 2009, 04:47:10 PM Heard from a reliable source today that although the boys signed a deal only a short time ago, EMI are trying to change the contract due to the (relative) poor selling of YES and the points they have to pay xenomenia have added to this problem....

Re: Yes / Love - International chart #'s

The numbers there are only estimates, so I think they might be wrong in some places. Exactly. AFAIK, at least the 'media traffic' WW charts (might be other WW charts that are considered more accurate ??? but can't remember details), have VERY little credibility with serious (music) chart/stats fana...

Re: Did You See Me Coming IS 2nd single out May 25th

It doesn't matter what single they release anyway. It will do ok first week, then drop like a stone. Love etc getting to number 14 was a fine achievement. Another top ten is virtually out of the question with the amount you need to sell. It really depends on the week of release. "Love etc." sold al...

Re: Yes enters UK album chart at No.4

I thought it would have been even lower than that. PSB have sold predominantly in week 1 for 15 years. It's not going to change now. The big difference is, they have managed to sell much more in the first week these days, than what they did with the previous 6 releases. That is an achievement in it...

Re: Love etc drops to 27 in UK - did EMI see this coming?

Which makes the number 14 achievement even better. GaGa's single has sold around 750,000 copies and took 10 weeks to get to number 1. re GaGa i'm not sure i understand your point about GaGa single but firstly I think U R gettin your GaGa singles mixed up. " Just Dance " her debut sold the 750K, the...

Re: Love etc drops to 27 in UK - did EMI see this coming?

Digital downloads are basically keeping it from falling like the usual proverbial rock. And it's still around #32 on iTunes. It seems to be developing a life of it's own despite the lack of radio or television coverage. Exactly the point i wanted to make. for all the people comparing Love etc perfo...
