    Beat me to it!

    Can i ask why you only capitalise the first word of a song/ artist? It looks a bit unclear/ incorrect.
    It's not so much a problem on the Rock Chart.

    Considering Radio 2 gets more listeners than Radio 1, it's a wonder all their playlisted songs never do well on the charts, though I guess Radio 2 have to balance playing things from the playlist and older stuff too.

    Sad DTMTIO wasn't released, it should have been a top 20 or top 30. Radio 2 has the song a-listed since january, they love her.

    All surprising given that they've still got Simply Red and Rox listed. And look at Katherine Jenkins, i thought Love Never Dies was her new single. Unless it's an AA.

    Eliza Doolittle should be on Radio 1's playlist - she's a new Lily Allen-ish singer.

    Radio 2 are a bit random, sometimes! They're ignoring Katherine Jenkins' Love Never Dies in favour of another "single" (her TV ad says this is the new single, contrary to our schedule).. Maybe the Paolo song is an AA now? Or Candy isn't a single?

    In all fairness, Radio One pretty much controls what singles artists release. I remember Jamie T was going to release "Salvador" at one point, but Radio One said it didn't stand a chance of getting playlisted, but they'd play "Sheila" again so they re-released that. It's probably the same case with Paolo, but he's releasing both. It'll probably do better for the album to have the two songs on radio anyway.

    Goldfrapps Rocket is still playlisted, thats really great! I cant get enough of that song! Bad it dropped to B but the next single is soon to be released so it doesnt matter that much, and even if it was A-listed it wouldnt help the song on the charts anyway.

    It helps the song in the album chart, the most important.
