Midweek chart information

While the battle for the UK Christmas number one single wont be over until the weekend, the Official Charts Company have released more midweek sales figures and it’s looking good for Facebook campaigners as Rage Against the Machine continue to lead the race with 175,163 sales to X Factor winner Joe McElderry’s 109,726 sales. These precise figures are a rarity as midweek chart information is only given to record companies to see how their artists are doing.

Atlantic Records are keen to let us know that 3OH!3 and Katy Perry’s track “Starstrukk” is at #7 for anyone who’s interested, which is enough news for the track to be stuck in my head for the rest of the day.
