Rival pop idols Gareth Gates and Will Young were knocked off the chart's top slot by Spanish group Las Ketchup, the Official UK Charts Company said Sunday. The pop princes' double A-side of "The Long and Winding Road/Suspicious Minds," a cover of hits from the Beatles and Elvis Presley, respectively, was knocked down to number 3. Las Ketchup's "The Ketchup Song"--a big dance hit in European clubs over the summer--came in straight at the top of the charts ahead of another new entry, "New Direction" from S Club Juniors. But the openly gay Young ruled the album charts, as From Now On opened at number 1, sending Elvis: 30 #1 Hits down to number 3. The Rolling Stones compilation Forty Licks held steady at number 2.
Back on the singles charts, Canadian skate punk Avril Lavigne saw her hit "Complicated" fall one place to number 4, while Pink's "Just Like a Pill" also fell one place, to number 6. At number 5 was another new entry, "All My Life," from Dave Grohl-led rock band Foo Fighters. Australian pop kitten Holly Valance, a former Neighbours television star, saw her single "Down Boy" tumble five places to number 7. At number 8 with "My Vision" was Jakatta, featuring Seal, down two places. "Down 4 U," from rap compilation Irv Gotti Presents: The Inc, slid five places to number 9. Oasis fell three to number 10 with "Little by Little."
