Tony Christie Tops Historic Uk Singles Chart

Veteran crooner TONY CHRISTIE has made British chart history - his track with comedian PETER KAY, (IS THIS THE WAY TO) AMARILLO, has topped the first chart to include internet downloads.

Aside from being the first number one on the combined chart, (Is This The Way To) Amarillo is enjoying its fifth week on top, this week (17APR05) beating out competition from RAZORLIGHT's SOMEWHERE ELSE which is a new entry at number two.

In third place is 1 2 STEP, a new entry for CIARA FT MISSY ELLIOTT, while ELVIS PRESLEY track A WONDER OF YOU is another new entry at number four.

WILL SMITH's SWITCH remains at number five for a second week.

In the UK albums chart, dance stars BASEMENT JAXX are occupying the top spot with compilation disc THE SINGLES.

AKON's TROUBLE is at number two, while TONY CHRISTIE's definitive collection sits in third place.

Rockers GARBAGE have crashed straight in at number four with their latest album BLEED LIKE ME, while last week's (10APR05) number one album, NATALIE IMBRUGLIA's COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS, slides to number five.
