Uk Music Charts -- Who Will Get The Christmas Single?
This week's UK music charts are out and Take That is #1 again with the single "Patience" and the album "Beautiful World." But all anyone can talk about is the Christmas single. Every year performers jockey to have bragging rights over snaring the Number One single on Christmas. Will Take That stay on top? Will new "X Factor" winner Leona Lewis move to Number one with her first single, a cover of Kelly Clarkson's "Moment Like This?" (Even if it's an attempt to say Lewis is the biggest talent to win "Idol"/"X Factor" since Kelly, that's a lame song choice.) The beloved Cliff Richards jumps in at #2 with "21st Century Christmas." And the Pogies are back in the Top 10 with their perennial favorite "Fairytale of New York." You can hear many of the songs vying for top honors via this BBC story.Place your bets!
