- Damn you to blazes, Miss Amy Winehouse! Thanks to your 'Back to Black' once again pulling in its weekly 35,000 and propelling it just shy of the Top Ten, we've clean run out of drunk jokes. A quick call to Don Rickles oughta remedy our lack of punch lines, so stay classy till then, Amy, and we'll see you same time, same place next week, armed with the zingers.
- With a Bullet has devised a new weighted formula for assessing the chart debuts of our long-in-the-tooth entertainers:
Age ÷ Debut Chart Position = SCI (Senior Chart Index). The higher the number, the better the performance -- so leave us try our hand at applying the formula to a few graybeards' opening weeks.
- Pudgy, high-voiced '50s pop idol Neil Sedaka's 'Definitive Collection'
68 ÷ 22 = 3.09 SCI
- Father of go-go dance-music fad Chuck Brown's 'We're About the Business'
73 ÷ 37 = 1.97 SCI
- Coca Cola-shunning popster Donny Osmond's 'Love Songs of the '70s'
49 ÷ 29 = 1.69 SCI
- Newly inducted Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Patti Smith's 'Twelve'
60 ÷ 60 = 1 SCI
- And let's break out a bottle of our finest Champale for the Cold War Kids! Their 2006 debut LP, 'Robbers & Cowards,' finally made its way into the Top 200 -- at No. 200! Stop laughing -- how high is your record on the chart?
- 'Best Damn Thing,' Avril Lavigne (122,000 in 2nd week; 409,000 total)
- 'Ain't Nothing Like Me,' Joe (98,000 in 1st week)
- 'Year Zero,' Nine Inch Nails (58,000 in 2nd week; 246,0000 total)
- 'Now 24,' Various Artists (55,000 in 5th week; 656,000 total)
- 'Daughtry,' Daughtry (49,000 in 23rd week; 2.4 million total)
