    I was told its a 24 hour rolling chart but not sure how true that is. Ie; Justin Bieber's latest shot up to #3 on Monday but has dropped right down to #28 (as of just now on iTunes ) so it's hardly selling anything today compared to 3 days ago. Eminem's new track seems to be fairing better but it's crap, prefer the silliness of Berzerk.
    Bieber is releasing a track a week for ten weeks so fans are buying on the first day and that's it - the songs aren't getting radio or TV exposure so there's nothing to keep them high. Eminem is just selling because people like it. It was #1 yesterday, now back down to 2. It must be strong on social network sites.

    Lorde's Royals pre-order is top 40 on combined chart.

    plus up to 61. Drake - Pound Cake / Paris Morton Music 2 (feat. Jay Z)

    • iTunes chart is supposed to be the top selling songs in the last hour. This fits in with the X-Factor or another TV show airing music. You can see how fast a song featured picks up sales.
      I didn't spot any leaked performance tracks from the X-Factor, getting on any iTunes charts, that's where someone from iTunes forgets to put a stop on the performance songs by the featured acts. Unlike previous years! Did you Blondini?
      Mind you just before midnight on Saturday it was still showing "act" and a number for several performance records.

      I have been informed that come Sunday only a few acts will make the Real Chart and none very high!

        • I would have listed them if i'd seen them. And you can tell from the originals underperforming that the songs aren't shifting. The Power Of Love - clearly the public fave of last week - didn't even make the top 100. But it only needs another I Won't Give Up or a Thousand Years.

              ^Three more chances for OCC to incorrectly credit EP's under the wrong (less popular) song (29, 66, 96). Assuming Sway is eligible? 4 songs spread over 6 tracks.

                      or Haven - our "sister" forum (for chart stats, anyway!). But we all rely on the same links so if they're down, no-one gets the info.

                            • Only one pre-order album track / instant download is allowed to chart - Applause is already an album preview instant download. They dissallowed Katy Perry's Walking On Air because Dark Horse was the first pre-order track and Pearl Jam's Sirens because Mind Your Manners was the first.
                              Though in this instance a remix package of Applause is also out so i don't know what they'll do.

                              Perry's album is - amazingly - (and literally) half-decent.

                              • Ohhh if Gaga spends all week at #1 on downloads and then doesnt chart on Sunday then that is a ridiculous rule. How can the chart be a list of most popular songs of the week, if THE most popular one is missing?

                                    She is releasing another three after it, too. They could all be uncharted.

                                        Gaga has been omitted from midweek. Her record company in UK will know the rules so no point blaming OCC. She'd down to 3.
                                        Andrea Begley's album is now up to 6.

                                            Roar reached #1 and is highly rated by most people on UKMix so that argument means nothing from your perspective. I'm saying the constant sales on iTunes are part of the over-rating. So are the sales in the US and elsewhere. And the over-use on adverts and trailers that has led to its longevity. It/they are rubbish and part of the general over-rated electronic rock genre that Bastille and Imagine Dragons are part of. His group Under The Influence Of Giants were better and actually UNDER-rated by music buyers.

                                            Also, why is it actually peaking NOW in UK? Is it this film trailer for Ridley Scott's The Counsellor?

                                              thanks, nice trailer,

                                              If you're referring to UK sales, it is still not overrated.... it didn't sell 1/100 of what Roar [how random collation here] sold...

                                              Anyway, I have to agree, they're not follow the marvelousness of SAIL and didn't make any more interesting songs...
