Chart lesson #1: Staying Put


Guess what's number one in the singles chart? Just have a go. No idea? All right then, it's actually Amarillo by Tony Christie. You know, that Comic Relief single!

This is the seventh, count that, seventh week crowning the chart. It's an amazing feat that sets a record for this century. You have to go back seven years to October 1998 to find the last time a song managed seven weeks at number one.

Amarillo has now sold almost a million copies for Comic Relief.
