Music takes one step forward, two steps back
From this Sunday, ‘old’ tracks will be eligible for the Official Singles Chart, meaning a return to the Top 10 for tracks released over six months ago.
Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars was released in August 2006, but is still going strong online. In fact, with the ‘new rules’ it’s expected to return to the Top 10 this Sunday.
If the rules had been in place before Christmas, Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas (Is You) would have been in the Top 10, as would an ancient Proclaimers track.
So let’s get this straight a minute…
The charts have been lying to us all this time! What was in the charts has only been what was deemed (by someone) ‘new’ music.
When was it decided Snow Patrol was no longer new? (Stop sniggering at the back!).
