iTunes Chart Watch

I know the Lady Gaga phenomenon is alive and well but am I the only one shocked she hasn't completely dominated the iTunes chart since the release of Born This Way? I find her reasonably insipid but she does have great taste in saxophone players and it's been very sweet the way she has rallied her fans to send good thoughts to ailing Clarence "Big Man" Clemons, who played on her album. We're all pulling for him to get well soon.

Adele is #1 on singles and albums this week and our good friends Coldplay (okay, so I've never met them, but...) is back with a new single that charts at #6 this week. My wife and I are both pro-Coldplay and we both like "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall" quite a lot, although I think she likes it just a little more.
