checking out and leaving the pop chart (life in fast lane surely makes you lose your mind)

Amusing to note that Ed Sheeran has managed to get 16 out of the 20 Top Twenty spots with the release of his recent album.

In the olden days artists would release one track from an album at a time up to maybe three in total for a successful artist. A sort of promotional extension of the album.

It seems that anything downloadable can now count, hence what must now be a lunatic ending for the official charts.

Come to think of it, Ed is on the Asylum label.

Even another Asylum best seller The Eagles couldn't achieve the same feat with their 16 million sales of the Hotel California album.

So much music, so little time.

I hate the way the charts are done at the moment. It's ridiculous that one man can hog the charts with songs which aren't even singles!
