I’m late enough that the midweeks for next Sunday’s chart are out – it’s been a while since that’s happened, so let’s get this one done.
And don’t forget to buy tickets for our live show on 31 May – all details are at this post, including the online ordering details.
We kick off with something unexpected…
40. Kristen Bell, Agatha Lee Monn & Idina Menzel – “Do You Want To Build A Snowman”
This is not officially on YouTube, though Disney must be turning a blind eye, giving that there are versions with millions of views up there. It’s presumably in the chart because of the Frozen DVD release. ”Let It Go”, which is still hanging around the top 40 after all these weeks, climbs up to a new high of 17 this week. ”Do You Want To Build A Snowman”, while a lovely scene, isn’t exactly the obvious track for people to be cherry picking – but here it is, and it’s actually climbing in the midweeks, which show a third Frozen song – “For The First Time in Forever” – set to join them. It’s only at 38, though, so it might not be there on Sunday. Obviously this wasn’t possible until the download era, but the download era has been going long enough that Frozen stands out as doing something truly odd.
