It says "reentry" and the single charted for 4 weeks. Doesn't this reflect a good sales figure? I am pleasently surprised.

It just reflects that it has returned to the chart at a new peak position. Sales are made up of downloads and physicals. As the physical CD only came out last week, the two previous weeks that Loneliness charted for were propelled by downloads only. They got it to 26 three weeks ago and 43 two weeks ago. It left the chart last week and returned now mainly thanks to CDs.

A top 10 UK single is a top 10 UK single. It's a win in my book...

Curious to know if the album sales count towards singles sales of Loneliness...4000 zoetrope albums would amount to a good add on when it counted the most...

Went into the site to discover my order had been cancelled and the single is now showing as sold out as does everywhere else. Ebay has a couple at inflated prices with excessive shipping costs.

Parlaphone must have underestimated demand. I wonder if they will manufacture more copies or are they happy for the sharks on Ebay to rip people off?
I’m not sure which country you are in but I can see the single for sale in both the official store and on Amazon.
I'm in Australia. All official store links take you to the Warner Music Australia store where the single shows as sold out. I tried several ways to get to the UK store and finally managed it from an old link from an old order. It let me log in, add the single, put in all of my information but when it came time to actually order it, it didn't work. Must have recognised I was in Australia. The shipping was more than double the cost of the actual single! Amazon Australia only has marketplace sellers and none of them ship to my location!

Amazon UK stopped shipping to Australia some years back when our government tried to enforce changes with GST (our version of VAT). I have checked Rarewaves, Townsend, Record Store and they all show sold out.

I have ordered it through Red Eye Records here in Sydney so fingers crossed it comes through. No guarantees though.

What's the difference between the UK Official Singles Sales Chart and the UK Official Physical Sales Chart? I'm not used to it, sorry...

Assume the first one includes digital sales, as well as physical sales (records and CDs). Unfortunately neither of these charts are used as the traditional measure of UK singles chart success - that’s the UK Official Singles Chart… this also includes streaming, and therefore PSB are nowhere to be seen: https://www.officialcharts.com/charts/singles-chart/

Ok but what's the difference between the UK Official Singles Sales Chart and the Official Singles Chart Top 100?

https://www.officialcharts.com/charts/singles-chart/

https://www.officialcharts.com/charts/s ... les-chart/

:wall:

Edit: my guess is it doesn't include streaming plays, just actual purchases...which in the good old days before t'interweb WAS the f'ing chart!!!

Therefore I still say PSB scored a top 10 UK single this week

No long time ago they got #1 on the official singles sales chart or a Top 3, I think.

Lineliness is *not* UK singles top 10 hit. Not at all. Not. At. All.

I'd like to see them perform a mashup of Loneliness and What Have I Done to Deserve This? I've even cobbled together my own quick mix to hear how that might sound https://www.mixcloud.com/gt_alien/pet-s ... oneliness/
