• Holy pre-fab girl band, Batman! Danity Kane at Number One on the charts? Nice work. The ladies' debut, Danity Kane, sold 234,341 copies in its first week.

• OutKast debuted at Number Two with their new record-cum-soundtrack Idlewild, selling 196,137 copies.

• Paris Hilton-loathing is practically a new religion for some people, but that didn't stop Paris from selling 76,858 copies and earning the Number Six spot on the charts this week. Dare we say it? That's hot.

“Don't Dream It's Over”

Crowded House | 1986

Early in the sessions for Crowded House's debut album, the band and producer Mitchell Froom were still feeling each other out, and at one point Froom substituted session musicians for the band's Paul Hester and Nick Seymour. "At the time it was a quite threatening thing," Neil Finn told Rolling Stone. "The next day we recorded 'Don't Dream It's Over,' and it had a particularly sad groove to it — I think because Paul and Nick had faced their own mortality." As for the song itself, "It was just about on the one hand feeling kind of lost, and on the other hand sort of urging myself on — don't dream it's over," Finn explained.
