Ireland gets Happy . . . again!

1 of 1 The Pharreller: we're Happy for him
The Pharreller: we're Happy for him

Maybe it's St Patrick's Day fever but Ireland has kept Pharrell Williams' infectious Happy at No 1 again this week, making it the most popular song in Ireland for nine weeks in total.

The Pharreller kept off competition from this week's new arrivals, including Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull (ok not quite competition), Kylie and er, Pixie Lott.

Over on the grown-up chart, mature Mancunians Elbow land at a well-deserved No 1 for their fine new album The Take Off and Landing of Everything, Metronomy seal it with a kiss at No 12 with Love Letters, and burlesque belter Paloma Faith has a root around in her dressing-up trunk and comes up with A Perfect Contradiction at No 8.
