Made for a real world...
David Bowie has entered the UK album chart at number five with his new album 'Heathen'. The spotters among us will remember that 'hours...' also entered the same chart at number five. Ironically, one of the albums above 'Heathen' in the chart is the triple CD by Queen, 'Greatest Hits I, II & III', which contains two versions of 'Under Pressure' both featuring Bowie vocals!
Whatever, it seems 'Heathen' is doing very well around Europe generally, with the number one spot in Denmark, and a number two placing in Norway. I know you'll all want to join me in congratulating David on the success of 'Heathen'. Here's a breakdown, in descending order of the positions so far, France, Germany and Japan tomorrow:
Anyway, some of you will get the chance to congratulate David personally this evening by joining him in an exclusive chat over at MSN Chat @ 7:00pm EDT. Click on the image above to take you there, and please say hallo from me as I'll be watching The Divine Comedy at Meltdown.
I have to admit though, It does look like this chat event is US only, as I haven't been able to find any trace of it at all, but I know the shortcut works in the US. Hopefully some tech head or other will post a way around this on the MBs...perhaps it's a disable cookies type thing or something like that...but what do I know...I am an artiste!
