PITNEY BREAKS BRITISH CHART
Pitney is still at number 1 on
the Hotdisc chart this week with "Everywhere"
but the big news is that Coffey
Anderson has rocketed 18 places from
20 to 2 with his new single "Bud
Light Beer" with the video to that
song causing great excitement. That
move, which only marginally failed
to get him to number 1 this week,
has sent Denny Strickland back the
other way, and after entering at 4
then climbing to 2, he is now down
to number 3. His video has not yet
appeared, but when it does it should
make for a very interesting battle
at the top. Coffey has shown what
the production of a quality video
can do to support a single.
Elsewhere in the Top 10 Timothy
Craig is locked at number 5 for
another week, Aly Cook also is
static at 6 but Kelly&Ellis have
moved up two places to rest at 7.
Billy Yates (19-12), Marcum Stewart
(18-13) and Royal Wade Kimes (25-19)
also have good weeks as their
ratings continue to improve.

The Hotdisc charts are compiled from DJs and industry professionals' ratings
of songs currently being promoted on the Rush Released CD. They are not airplay charts, as airplay charts cannot
work in Europe as there are no terrestrial country stations in this area. The hundreds of country shows are likely
to play a particular song only twice at most in a three month period, therefore rendering airplay charts insignificant
in Europe. It works well in America where there are plenty of non-stop country stations but it cannot work here.
The Hotdisc charts are therefore put together weekly using ratings supplied
by DJs who give scores to every song on the last three months' editions of Rush Released. The scores are totalled
up and averaged out per week to give an accurate guide to the songs which are being championed by the industry.
The aim is to showcase the songs which the DJs and media people are pinpointing as top quality songs, which is
a very useful exercise, particularly to all our clients and DJs as it is free of politics, hype and rigging and
done on merit!
