The Billboard Charts

The Hot 100 is fairly quiet this week. Nelly Furtado is still at #1. John Mayer debuts at #25 with his new single -- I have to admit, I've gorwn to like the guy since his bluesy power trio album. And Nick Lachey's break-up song "What's Left Of Me" has failed to crack the top 20, peaking at #21. On the other hand, Jessica Simpson's break-up song "A Public Affair" has peaked at #38, so I'd call that one win for the guys. I would LOVE it if they got back together (via an MTV reality show of course, complete with courting and a season finale re-marriage) and we suddenly realized it was all a publicity stunt.

And here are the Top 10 CDs:

1. Various Artists -- Now 22
2. Thom Yorke -- Eraser
3. Pimp C -- Pimpalation (His momma must be so proud)
4. Nelly Furtado -- Loose
5. Gnarls Barkley -- St. Elsewhere
6. Johnny Cash: American V -- A Hundred Highways
7. Soundtrack -- High School Musical
8. Rascal Flatts -- Me and My Gang
9. Muse -- Black Holes and Revelations
10. Rihanna -- A Girl Like Me
