Live 8 track tops download chart

Bono and Paul McCartney
U2 and Paul McCartney have topped the download chart with their Live 8 performance of Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Their live version of The Beatles' classic tune opened the London concert and was available to download before the Live 8 gig was over.

They pushed James Blunt's You're Beautiful down to number two.

Current singles chart-topper Ghetto Gospel by 2Pac and Elton John has also moved down, to number three.

Meanwhile, Crazy Chick Charlotte Church, has held her number four spot.

Another Paul McCartney track from Live 8, The Long and Winding Road, was a new entry as was Coldplay's Fix You.

So long Crazy Frog?

And perhaps this week could finally see the end of the Crazy Frog as Axel F drops 13 places down to number 36 in the chart.
