Chart round-up: Pink Floyd beat Foo Fighters


In the singles chart this week, Gareth Malone’s All Star Choir have shot to number one with ‘Wake Me Up’ all in aid of Children In Need. The all-star choir consists of the likes of Jo Brand, Craig Revel Horwood, Linda Robson and Mel Giedroyc. Close behind is Ed Sheeran with ‘Thinking Out Loud’ with One Direction in third after ‘Steal My Girl’ jumps six places. Cheryl’s ‘I Don’t Care’ and Meghan Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’ finishes this week’s top five.

Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding don’t move this week, staying strong in sixth position with their latest collaborative effort, ‘Outside’. Tom Odell breaks the top ten with his rendition of ‘Real Love’, John Lewis’ Christmas advert’s sound this year. The Veronicas, known for their global hit ‘Untouched’, released back in 2007, enter the UK chart in eighth with their latest single, ‘You Ruin Me’, matching the UK chart success of ‘Untouched’. Sam Smith finishes this week’s top ten with his new single, ‘Like I Can’ in ninth as well as ‘I’m Not The Only One’ in tenth.

With a very competitive chase on this week in the album chart, Pink Floyd manage to fight off Foo Fighters and grab that all important number one with their latest LP, The Endless River. Foo Fighters are close behind in second with their Sonic Highways. Ed Sheeran maintains his never-ending chart success with x holding this week’s bronze medal. Sam Smith is in fourth place and Queen enter in fifth with Forever.

Taylor Swift stands her ground in sixth place against the weak force of Cheryl, who enters the chart in seventh place, her most disappointing debut album chart position to date with Only Human. André Rieu, Calvin Harris and George Ezra finish this week’s top ten.
