Dancing DJs vs Roxette – New entry at #18

The Dancing DJs remix of “Fading like a Flower” is a new entry in the UK at #18 this week. The hype has been building for months, and many people were expecting a much higher entry. Unlike the American chart, singles are much less likely to climb after their initial entry, so it seems likely that this will be the single’s peak position. The song has been doing well on the UK video channel “The Box” for several weeks, with a new video featuring dancers with the original Roxette video in the background.

  However, as well as a distinct lack of promotion and radio airplay, the main problem that the release faced is that the UK’s largest single retailer, Woolworths, decided not to stock the single, which has seriously hampered its potential success.
