MUSIC! MAKES THE PEOPLE! COME TOGETHER! YEAH! Yes, Kris Allen won Idol and is winning the singles sales race at iTunes--"No Boundaries" is at #14, while Lambert's "Mad World" is at #29 on the iTunes overall sales chart. But dig a little deeper by looking at the "Pop" category, and it seems like Adam's fanbase may be a little more rabid, which could bode well for album and touring for him. Lambert has 10 solo songs on the "Pop 100," along with his "Slow Ride" duet. Allen has 6. Both have two versions of one song charting twice--"One" and "Heartless," respectively--as they're selling well in versions found on different albums. Other things of note in the Hot and Pop 100:
  • It's remarkable by how few artists the Pop 100 is dominated--Lady Gaga has 6 tracks, Beyonce and David Cook have 5 tracks each, David Cook has 5, Katy Perry has 4, Pink, Britney, the Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna, and Black Eyed Peas each have 3 and Lily Allen, Demi Lovato, Kelly Clarkson, Natasha Bedingfield, and the Veronicas each have 2.
  • Some oldies continue to chart--Biz Markie hits 88 and 99 on the Hot 100 with "Just A Friend," "Don't Stop Believin'" still charts at 43 on the Hot 100 for the Journey version (the Glee cast version is #10), "In The Air Tonight" charts at 58 on the Pop 100 (I assume courtesy of "The Hangover"), "Eye of The Tiger" charts at 59 on the Pop 100, "Graduation (Friends Forever)" lingers at 97 in its annual run up the Pop 100, and ba-da-da! "Sweet Caroline" is at 91 on the Pop 100.
