    Just read in today's Herald Sun that Black Box is number 2 again on the Aria charts this week! That's great news considering the drop in downloads, there must be a lot of physical sales going on. Hopefully with the release of the album this week we can get this single and/or album to number 1! :cheers: :cheers:

    WOW - that's great! They must be releasing them earlier these days. They haven't uploaded to the site yet - it is still last week's charts up there.

    Yeah they usually are 1 or 2 days slow with updating the charts.
    If you can manage to get your hands on a copy of the Daily Telegraph (or Sydney Herald not sure which one it is) or the Herald Sun newspaper, in the back in the entertainment section it has the Aria Top 5 singles and albums and I was glad to wake up this morning to find Stan at number 2. Now for confirmation from the ARIA site :)

    I think he missed out on the physical sales LAST week because half the music stores did the "don't bother unpacking, it is only an Idol winner" thing, only to discover people were buying 5 CDs at a time - so I think the physical sales will have gone up this week, now that they are on the shelves. I downloaded the single, but didn't buy the CD because I am buying 5 of the albums and so I won't need the single CD!

    Haha awesome.
    It's interesting you say that though cause on last week's charts Stan was number 1 for physical (on limited time) and number 2 on downloads where he held number 1 spot on iTunes for most of the week so it's strange how Ke$ha pipped him for number 1 spot but I guess number 1 isn't everything. Some songs could go straight to number one and then drop off or you could have a song that never reaches number 1 but is consistent on the charts and hangs around the top 50 for a while. I hope the latter is the case with Stan so he can have a good chance at the Arias next year but of course number 1 would be great too :)

    There is also an article on him in the Herald Sun (Melbourne) in Focus on page 93.

    As for the downloads - I know - it is a little odd - but what drives a person to download versus buy the CD? Does Ke$ha's greater downloads mean people see it as a one hit sort of thing and don't want to bother buying the actual CD? Darned if I know! I sometimes buy tracks via download (it is so cheap) only to see if I want to buy an album - it isn't really my way of buying music - I like the better quality too much.

    Yeah I saw that Focus thing too - they put Stan as one of the 'People of 2009' Big Smile Big Smile
    Yeah I understand what you mean, it's confusing, but personally I know I'd rather the hard copy than the downloaded version.

    Yeah I saw those as well, it's great it's hanging around the top 10 on iTunes and still doing great on Bandit. As long as Stan has reasonable downloads I think he should be fine :)

    Yep - I think it will be Platinum for the album, no worries. bounce

    I just hope Stan is getting some of the money. I know with these first releases Sony/management gets a lot of it, but I suppose Stan will get enough to keep the wolf from the door.

    LOL it only came out here in Australia like 3 days ago and the ARIA's run from Friday to Friday so I doubt Stan would have got enough sales in like 2 days to reach the top 5, it's okay, wait until next week's charts and you'll see it right up there, guranteed Big Smile

    No? I thought it might have come out as early as Wednesday but even so everywhere was advertising it as being released on Friday, even Stan thought it was being released on Friday when he was on Sunrise so seriously, it'll be fine, give it until next weekend and it should be top 5 :)
