Gnarls Heading for UK Chart First!
He may be crazy, but he's on the verge of a download-tastic first...
Gnarls Barkley looks set to enter at number one in the UK Singles Chart on Sunday (April 2), purely on download sales, a feat never achieved before.
Barkleys much raved about track Crazy currently leads the midweek charge, despite not actually being officially released until next week. Its current position is based purely on download sales, so if it holds on until Sunday it will be the first ever to do so. Crazy.
Giving Gnarls a run for his money though is Morrissey with his cheerfully titled new outing You Have Killed Me.
Other new entries looking destined to penetrate the top 20 are the new ones from Depeche Mode, Michael Jackson (a re-release of The Way You Make Me Feel) and The Streets.
