Chart Watch

I was reading today's chart watch column on Yahoo! and found these little tidbits interesting.

Here's a sign that Glee has surpassed American Idol as the key music show on TV.

In what was for Glee a routine week, it put more songs on Hot Digital Songs than American Idol did in this special week where their songs from the season are released for the first time.
There are 11 Glee songs on this week's chart, topped by the cast's version of Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" (featuring Idina Menzel), which debuts at #9. It's the sixth Glee song to make the top 10 on Hot Digital Songs; the third in the past four weeks

In other digital download news:

Guns N' Roses'
1988 classic "Sweet Child O' Mine" tops the 2 million mark in paid downloads this week. It's the seventh pre-1990 song to reach this plateau. It follows Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," Michael Jackson's "Thriller," Survivor's "Eye Of The Tiger," Bon Jovi's "Livin' On A Prayer," Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" and Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." It's an extraordinary achievement for songs to connect in a big way in two separate eras.
