Post Will & Gareth set for Number 1

source:Worldpop.com

The race for this week's No 1 single looks like a three horse race with Pop Idols Will and Gareth currently battling Oasis and Canadian newcomer Avril Lavigne for the top spot.

According to sales research carried out by worldpop at HMV stores across the country, Will and Gareth's cover of The Beatles' Long and Winding Road is ahead of Oasis' new single Little By Little in the sales race with 17-year-old Canadian singer Avril Lavigne bringing up the rear with her new single, Complicated.

Meanwhile on the album chart Elvis Presley is on course to score yet another No 1 with his latest compilation of greatest hits. Elvis: 30 No 1 hits looks sure to top the albuim charts this week with stores reporting great early demand for the CD - a complete collection of Elvis' 30 UK and US No 1's. The CD features all the No 1's from 1956 to 1977. The album includes the recent No 1, the JXL remix of A Little Less Conversation. Infact it could be a vague double for the King this week if Gareth Gates' version of Suspicious Minds (the double A side to Long & Winding Road) also hits the top.

A spokesman for Elvis' record company, BMG said: 'This proves just how important Elvis is to every generation of pop fan. His enduring appeal makes Elvis the greatest music icon of all time.'

Ach not yet another cover I'm really starting to get fed up with the amount of covers these so-called 'Pop Idols' do. I hope Avril Lavigne gets to number 1 but i think thats doubtful.

Not the best cover I've ever heard - but hey it's pop & 100% marketable. So, no surprise. I do like Will a lot, so I'm glad he's getting another #1.

AmErIcAn: His singing on American Idol was not very good at all. You should download some of his songs if you're interested in hearing him how he really sounds. I mean, didn't Kelly Clarkson even sound awful that night? I think the acoustics in that damn Kodak Theatre are dreadful.

Well at least it doesn't sound like they are racing away to the number one spot, right? Perhaps in about 10 years time we'll finally see the back of both of them.

Jen, is it cold out there or are you just pleased to see me?

Anything would be preferable. Esp. since the red.dark brown haired one is kinda cute.

YES to Will Young! I know, I know...another (yawn) cover, but any chance to hear that man sing is one I'll take!

Seles, you're so right about that Kodak Theatre! AmErIcAn, Will's not a 'belter' or 'screamer', so it's tough to get a good sense of his voice on one hearing (or two, particularly surrounded by the hoopla of 'American Idol' and his nervousness at performing in such a venue).

Please, PLEASE let his debut album convince the 'suits' that covers do NOT a career make!
