UK Music Charts

Not much action on the singles chart, where Gnarls Barkley remains on top for the sixth week with "Crazy." But Snow Patrol debuts at #1 on the album chart with their new CD "Eyes open." Tool debuts at #4 and Pearl Jam at #5. And you gotta love how the Brits embrace classic music at any time. Nina Simone is back on the charts with a compilation, thanks to Groovefinder using her voice on a hit single. And Scott Walker and the Walker Brothers hit the top 40 with a greatest hits CD, perhaps in anticipation of Scott Walker's latest solo album. Since he puts them out at the rate of about one a decade, it's an event worth celebrating.
