I think 23 is more likely.

Can someone clarify how Future Chart works?

Are they predicting that Minimal will enter the chart at number 9, or are they saying that IF all those singles are released at the same time, Minimal would be the 9th highest entry out of those particular singles (I *know* they won't be released at the same time, I'm just trying to keep it simple ;)?

It tries to guess which songs can be future hits.
The FutureChart is compiled by ChartsPlusfrom a number of information sources indicating public interest in new and upcoming releases.

The week before the release of the single it can predicts if this song will be the highest new entry or not (I think it will be the second highest new entry, the first one will be Madonna).

But it is very strange because Minimal has gone up very quickly, even faster than I'm with stupid. :shock:

Because it debuted last week, 3 or 4 weeks before release. I'm with stupid debuted 6 or so weeks before it came out so had longer to climb.

Is it reliable?
The CELL by Stephen King instantly hit number 1 in New York Times Bookseller Lists selling well over 200 thousand copies in three weeks. This affirms my opinion: People really need an occassional good horror read...

When will the chart position for Minimal be known? Also - any word on whether the b-sides will be available on CD? sorry if this is already posted, i'm new :-)

are there any sites other than www.7digital.com that allows US users to purchase downloads of tracks? I know iTunes won't do it... 7digital had the b-sides for I'm not Stupid, but they don't seem to have the Minimal b-sides downloads.

Wonder if they'll show any footage of PSB with the first ever act on TOTP, good ole Dusty.

No, I wouldn't trust it! Although, it did get the I'm with Stupid chart position right...
