Maurice -

By accident, the timing of Elvis' single means that everything is in place for it to be a massive hit.

Except the product.

Instead of requesting radio stations to just play it a request should have also been made to give out official links of where the song could be downloaded from - at least that way it'd get people used to downloading the current Elvis single and give Elvis a head start for when the downloads are included in the chart stats.

Steve -

Do you know, I haven't a clue how to download an Elvis track !

Well not by paying for it anyway !

But if thousands download Crying In The Chapel, it won't help its chart position by one iota.

Downloads aren't included in the UK singles chart [yet] !

ColinB, Products have been known to be suddenly produced as if from nowhere:-)

I know they wouldn't contribute to the chart just yet, but that's why I said it would get people used to using the downloads ready for when they are used for chart compilation.

Also, as you point out, you don't know where to go to officially download a track, yet if the link can be given for CITC then you would know before the downloads are used for chart stats where to go.

Colin, the thought of downloading tracks doesn't appeal to me, but then again when I first heard of CD's that thought also didn't appeal either :lol:

Having a piece of physical property in your hand is a visible indication of the money you spend, that's a hard concept to try and change on those of us who are of a generation(s) that are used to having something physical to look at and read as well as play.

When CD's came in, I'd only just got used to flat records [you knew where you were with the wax cylinders].

When my computer was stolen recently, I lost around 2000 music tracks.

How much more peeved would I have been if I'd paid for them !

Ahh - but of course, having downloaded them, a CD should be made, so as to guard against losing the contents of the hard drive.

But wait, why not buy a CD in the first place !

D'oh !

Yeah, but its that very generation which is most likely to buy Elvis singles.

Rusty Martin*, What happened to "No man is an island.."etc?

If you are going to correct me write out the full piece..I have it here in front of me:-)

XVII. MEDITATION.


PERCHANCE he for whom this bell tolls may be so ill, as that he knows not it tolls for him; and perchance I may think myself so much better than I am, as that they who are about me, and see my state, may have caused it to toll for me, and I know not that. The church is Catholic, universal, so are all her actions; all that she does belongs to all. When she baptizes a child, that action concerns me; for that child is thereby connected to that body which is my head too, and ingrafted into that body whereof I am a member. And when she buries a man, that action concerns me: all mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated; God employs several translators; some pieces are translated by age, some by sickness, some by war, some by justice; but God's hand is in every translation, and his hand shall bind up all our scattered leaves again for that library where every book shall lie open to one another. As therefore the bell that rings to a sermon calls not upon the preacher only, but upon the congregation to come, so this bell calls us all; but how much more me, who am brought so near the door by this sickness. There was a contention as far as a suit (in which both piety and dignity, religion and estimation, were mingled), which of the religious orders should ring to prayers first in the morning; and it was determined, that they should ring first that rose earliest. If we understand aright the dignity of this bell that tolls for our evening prayer, we would be glad to make it ours by rising early, in that application, that it might be ours as well as his, whose indeed it is. The bell doth toll for him that thinks it doth; and though it intermit again, yet from that minute that that occasion wrought upon him, he is united to God. Who casts not up his eye to the sun when it rises? but who takes off his eye from a comet when that breaks out? Who bends not his ear to any bell which upon any occasion rings? but who can remove it from that bell which is passing a piece of himself out of this world?

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee. Neither can we call this a begging of misery, or a borrowing of misery, as though we were not miserable enough of ourselves, but must fetch in more from the next house, in taking upon us the misery of our neighbours. Truly it were an excusable covetousness if we did, for affliction is a treasure, and scarce any man hath enough of it. No man hath affliction enough that is not matured and ripened by and made fit for God by that affliction. If a man carry treasure in bullion, or in a wedge of gold, and have none coined into current money, his treasure will not defray him as he travels. Tribulation is treasure in the nature of it, but it is not current money in the use of it, except we get nearer and nearer our home, heaven, by it. Another man may be sick too, and sick to death, and this affliction may lie in his bowels, as gold in a mine, and be of no use to him; but this bell, that tells me of his affliction, digs out and applies that gold to me: if by this consideration of another's danger I take mine own


The internet is a wonderful tool, if you know how to use it, and use it properly :wink:

Rusty Martin*, I'm sure everyone enjoyed reading all that:-)

You say "The internet is a wonderful tool, if you know how to use it, and use it properly".

If that is your example of using the Internet properly Methinks I'll stick to my own very successful method, thankyou:-)
