Mid-week chart indicates ‘My Heart’ could become Doris Day’s first ever ‘Top 10’ hit album in the UK!September 8, 2011 5 Comments
Although the multi-million selling American songstress Doris Day has scored 8 ‘Top 10’ hit singles in the UK – two of which were the chart toppers: ‘Secret Love’ and ‘Que Sera Sera’ – she has never before charted an album in the UK ‘Top 10’ chart. This is because the UK album chart only began in 1958 after many of Day’s biggest and best loved million selling LPs had been released. The star’s highest recorded entry was therefore in 1979 when a compilation of her Greatest Hits entitled ’20 Golden Greats’ peaked at #12.
This situation may however soon change as the Mid-week chart indicates that Doris Day’s 29th original album ‘My Heart’ is on track for breaking into the UK ‘Top 10’ album chart this weekend with sales positioning it currently at #9. The final result will be revealed by The Official Charts Company on Sunday, 11 September 2011.
If you are a fan in the UK who hasn’t yet bought Ms. Day’s delightful new long-play don’t delay as you could potentially help clinch the star this wonderful chart accolade. Do either download the album or buy the CD before Sunday as competition is very high this week as there are a lot of other current pop acts battling for a place in the ‘Top 10’!
Doris Day’s new album is also currently trending in the German album chart at #43 so may become her first hit album in the world’s 2nd largest music market!
