The British Pop Charts
On the singles chart, boy band McFly (an homage to Back to the Future?) debuts at #1 with their fifth straight chart-topper, "Don't Stop Me Now"/"Please, Please" (a double-sided charity hit, I believe). But I've got my eye (okay, my other eye) on soulster James Morrison, whose debut single "You Give Me Something" leaps from #27 to #5. Could he be another breakout act like Corinne Bailey Rae? Could he possibly be as good? As soon as I get ther CD on import, I'll let you know. On the album charts, Razorlight, Lily Allen and Paolo Nutini debut in the top three.
