ATAY goes on climbing the charts

TDR’s ‘Small Talk’ section is – as always when a new Roxette single is released – full of messages from our subscribers talking about the success of the single on the charts.

  Last weekend, “A Thing About You” reached the top at major Russian station Maximum, after a week of voting. It was followed by Madonna’s new single.

  In Sweden, it entered the single charts at #14; while in Germany it’s at #37 and in Austria #39.

  There are two TDR subscriber-reporters keeping track of this activity in an organized fashion. One, “RoomService”, is posting chart info on his website “Roxette Charts”. You’ll find “PerFanatic”‘s info as this article continues.

Here is the update on ATAY in the world-wide Radio/Airplay/Sales/Internet charts:

Wk 1: 22 charts, 27.5 avg, 2 top 10, 11 countries

Wk 2: 38 charts, 17.5 avg, 8 top 10, 2 @ #1, 14 counties

Wk 3: 44 charts, 14.0 avg, 20 top 10, 1 @ #1, 15 countries

Wk 4: 57 charts, 13.5 avg, 26 top 10, 2 @ #1, 18 countries

  By comparison, MATAH peaked at 47 total charts, but keep in mind that I am pulling more charts than were available at that time, so it’s not completely scientific. Still though, a pretty impressive trend so far.

  For Week 5, ATAY is already #1 on three stations, with a few more possibilities.
