Crazy’ Headed for Number One Spot

I’m around on 0780 119 4139 to give comments and to try and verify if Gnarls has
made it (should know soon after Sunday lunchtime) if you need to call me – please
advise whoever is covering Sunday.

In the meantime, please find below a quote, which you may wish to use/adapt in the
event of GB making it to no.1.

HMV’s Gennaro Castaldo comments
“This is an exciting development and a watershed in charts history, which show that
legal downloads have truly arrived. ‘Crazy’ is HMV Digital’s biggest-ever selling
download and we’re beginning to see this market really start to take off.

“I doubt this will be a regular occurrence just yet and it doesn’t mean the end of
physical singles for the forseeable future: demand for CD singles and, particularly
7/12″ vinyl remains and record companies are obliged to release these formats under
current chart rules, but you’d have to say that the writing is on the wall.”
