Swedish charts update: it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Jeff Buckley.
Leonard Cohen.
Rufus Wainwright.

Welcome to the weird world of this week's Swedish "Digilistan" singles chart, which has gone "Hallelujah"-crazy after Idol finalist Amanda Jenssen sang the song in the competition. Now that downloads figure in the singles chart, the song appears no less than 3 times in the top 60: at no.4 (Buckley), no. 10 (Cohen) and no.57 (Wainwright).

Ms Jenssen herself also makes an appearance at no. 31 with her "Look What They've Done To My Song Ma"!

Not too much else to report apart from "Apologize" finally being deposed from no.1 by Leona Lewis' "Bleeding No.1 For Another Week In The UK Singles Chart" (OK it's called "Bleeding Love" but I couldn't resist :-))
