Coldplay hits 10th week atop Euro chart

Katy Perry stays atop singles chart for third week

LONDON -- Coldplay's reign on European Top 100 Albums moves into double figures as "Viva la Vida" (Parlophone), starts a tenth week at No. 1. Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" (Virgin) begins a third week atop Eurochart Hot 100 Singles.

The Coldplay album is down to the last of its remaining No. 1 berths -- in France. It falls from the top in Holland and the Belgian region of Wallony. But it holds at No. 4 in Spain and moves up from No. 7 to No. 6 in Italy.

The entire top 10 of the Pan-European album chart is unchanged, with the exception of two titles that trade places. ABBA's "Gold -- Greatest Hits" (Polydor/Universal) moves up from No. 6 to No. 5 as Amy Macdonald's "This Is the Life" (Mercury/Universal) moves in the other direction.

The ABBA compilation is at No. 2 again in the U.K. and Ireland and climbs from No. 6 to No. 4 in Norway. Macdonald's album holds at No. 3 in Flanders and No. 4 in Germany and Holland.

Perry's single adds three new No. 1 rankings, moving from No. 2 to No. 1 in Germany, Austria and Ireland, and holds at the top in the U.K., Denmark and Switzerland. It's also No. 2 in Sweden and Norway.

The biggest new single of the week on the Eurochart, with a No. 6 debut, is Montreal-born French superstar Mylene Farmer's "Degeneration." That's after a No. 1 debut in France and a 33-1 climb in Wallony.
