Downloads Are Go

Last night saw the successful inaugural incorporation of the download charts into the mainstream charts, with only a minor incidence of ‘creative charting’ courtesy of Gorillaz (they released 300 vinyl copies of ‘Feel Good Inc’ into the shops to make the burgeoning downloads of the tracks eligible for the chart). As I alluded to in my previous blog, the ‘anonymity’ effect of shopping online seems to have helped ensure Tony Christie’s ‘Amarillo’ stay at number one. So even if it those buying online should be old enough to know better, they don’t!
