It would be nice to post more than a one-liner. Why do you think the chances are minimal? Minimal is released on 2 cd's and a DVD-single. The previous single went in at #8. Personally I expect a #9 entry for Minimal.

:o
As far as I remember its rank is higher on Amazon than it was for I'm with stupid; but I don't know if this translates into actual sales figures.
The CELL by Stephen King instantly hit number 1 in New York Times Bookseller Lists selling well over 200 thousand copies in three weeks. This affirms my opinion: People really need an occassional good horror read...

Considering that the single was available for download since Friday (from what I can gather, correct me if I'm wrong), I wonder if it's managed to scrape into the top 75?

It's in their online store but only as downloads - not as a CD. Unsure if this means they aren't stocking it physically at all.

I nipped into Woolies today but, alas, they didn't have it. I remember in the 90's they'd be useless at getting singles in on the Monday, would always have to wait until midweek.

I can't imagine why they'd not stock it full-stop, its a guaranteed top 20 single after all.

Suppose I could always try Music Zone but they are next to useless with singles.

It is actually number two and three on amazon's top100 singles:

I bet it will be a top 10 hit! :wink:
