UK Music Charts -- Hello "High School Musical"

Scissor Sisters remain on top of the singles and album charts in the UK. (I think that the singles chart is actually more important than the album chart to the Brits. Just saying.) But the big news for me is seeing a single from "High School Musical" debut at #9. The show just debuted to massive numbers in the Uk. It is way beyond a phenomenon and is now simply inexplicable, the success that this TV movie has had. On the album charts, Corrine Bailey Rae isn't touring in the UK but her album is edging back into the Top 20. And she'll get another boost in the US: Rae is the musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend. (She also plays Town Hall in NYC on December 13.)
