Above the Noise
Above the Noise is the fifth studio album from English pop rock band McFly. The album was released on 15 November 2010; the album spawned three singles: "Party Girl", released on 6 September. The album's title was revealed; the band made the album available to download to members of SuperCity. The band have worked with producers Dallas Austin and Taio Cruz on the album, which sees them return to their former record label, Island Records; the album's track listing was revealed on 25 October 2010. The album was certified as Gold in the UK; the album was released concurrently with the DVD Behind the Noise, exclusive to Asda, which contained behind-the-scenes footage from the album in addition to two music videos. After the release of "Falling in Love", McFly headed back into the studio to begin work on their next album. On 22 January 2010, it was announced that the band were going to re-sign with former label Island Records; this was revealed to be a 50/50 deal that sees all profits except publishing split between Universal and McFly, including money from touring, record sales and sponsorship.
The band began writing with producer Dallas Austin in April 2010. The album's title comes from a line in the second verse of the single "Shine a Light": "Tell me can you hear my voice and clear above the noise?" On 9 July 2010, Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter confirmed on Twitter that the first single from the album would be called "Party Girl", a track, written in Atlanta with Austin. According to Austin, "Party Girl" is the only track on the album with a dance-oriented sound; the song premiered on 14 July 2010 on BBC Radio 1, a one-minute-long snippet was posted on McFly's Myspace page. On the same day, InDemand played the full song; the single was released on 6 September peaking at number six on the UK Singles Chart. The second single from the album, "Shine a Light", is a track produced and jointly written with Taio Cruz, who features on the track; the song premiered on 21 September 2010, following a video treasure hunt competition involving the band. The treasure hunt allowed fans to appear in the music video for the track by hunting for clues to get to the place of filming.
The single was released on 8 November 2010. On 7 January and Dougie announced in a video message via SuperCity that "That's the Truth" would be the next single from the album, it would be released on 6 March. A video for the song was recorded and live recording footage was broadcast through SuperCity; the video deals with Dougie Poynter's admission to rehab following his split with Frankie Sandford. This resulted in three dates of the group's tour being rescheduled; the album received favourable reviews from music critics. Jon O'Brien from AllMusic rated it 3.5 stars out of 5 and positively noted that "Above the Noise is McFly's most strong collection of songs in their six-year career. Whether it will be enough to prevent their worrying sales decline remains to be seen, but by embracing their pop sensibilities, they've at least given themselves a fighting chance of competing with their contemporaries". Iain Moffaft from the BBC gave a positive review for the album, saying the album was "the most radical break we can remember at this stage of a band's career since Everything but the Girl's jaunt into jungle, one that confirms that McFly are not only conclusively back, but they might just have guaranteed themselves a future".
OK! Magazine were positive in their review, saying that "anyone who's anyone in pop is going all 80s these days. Guitars are so yesterday and retro synths are where it's at! McFly – famous for their playschool punk-pop sound – have done it, and while it would be easy to accuse them of jumping on bandwagons to make a pile of cash, we're pleased because this is the best thing they've done."Entertainment Focus were positive in their review saying that "Above the Noise is the best record that McFly have released in the 6 years they've been together. Maturing musically and moving away from the teen pop of previous releases, the band embrace pop sensibilities to create the strongest collection of songs they've recorded. Above the Noise should be a huge seller as we approach Christmas and don't be surprised if it spawns several hit singles". Emma Dawson from M is for Music gave a mixed review, calling it a "embarrassing and average album", stating, "Above the Noise may be a welcome change and will help them back on their feet after Radio:Active, however I'd much rather go and listen to Room on the Third Floor and Wonderland to remind me of the pop band they once were, what I secretly wish they still were."
Hamish MacBain from the NME, while admiring the band's commercial endurance, dismissed the music as "absolute shite". David Pollock from The Scotsman positively noted that the album is "undoubtedly their best studio effort yet, but still aimed squarely at those who like their pop glossy and unchallenging". Johnny Dee from Virgin Media concluded that "Above the Noise is a stab at a mature pop sound which sometimes results in a bonkers Duran Duran meets Muse mish-mash complete with War of the Worlds rock opera climax". In UK, Above the Noise debuted at number 20 with sales of 17,662 sales in the first week, by the end of the year was certified Silver, with sales of over 60,000. Since its release the album has sold over 100,000 copies so far in the UK, it fared better on the UK Albums Download Chart, peaking at number 7. In Scotland it peaked at number 20, at number 79 in Ireland. In Spain, Above the Noise marks the first time an album of McFly'
UK Singles Chart
The UK Singles Chart is compiled by the Official Charts Company, on behalf of the British record industry, listing the top-selling singles in the United Kingdom, based upon physical sales, paid-for downloads and streaming. The Official Chart, broadcast on BBC Radio 1 and MTV, is the UK music industry's recognised official measure of singles and albums popularity because it is the most comprehensive research panel of its kind, today surveying over 15,000 retailers and digital services daily, capturing 99.9% of all singles consumed in Britain across the week, over 98% of albums. To be eligible for the chart, a single is defined by the Official Charts Company as either a'single bundle' having no more than four tracks and not lasting longer than 25 minutes or one digital audio track not longer than 15 minutes with a minimum sale price of 40 pence; the rules have changed many times as technology has developed, the most notable being the inclusion of digital downloads in 2005 and streaming in July 2014.
The OCC website contains the Top 100 chart. Some media outlets only list the Top 75 of this list; the chart week runs from 00:01 Friday to midnight Thursday, with most UK physical and digital singles being released on Fridays. From 3 August 1969 until 5 July 2015, the chart week ran from 00:01 Sunday to midnight Saturday; the Top 40 chart is first issued on Friday afternoons by BBC Radio 1 as The Official Chart from 16:00 to 17:45, before the full Official Singles Chart Top 100 is posted on the Official Charts Company's website. A rival chart show, The Vodafone Big Top 40, is based on iTunes downloads and commercial radio airplay across the Global Radio network only, is broadcast on Sunday afternoons from 16:00 to 19:00 on 145 local commercial radio stations across the United Kingdom; the Big Top 40 is not regarded by the industry or wider media. There is a show called "Official KISS Top 40", counting down 40 most played songs on Kiss FM every Sunday 17:00 to 19:00; the UK Singles Chart began to be compiled in 1952.
According to the Official Charts Company's statistics, as of 1 July 2012, 1,200 singles have topped the UK Singles Chart. The precise number of chart-toppers is debatable due to the profusion of competing charts from the 1950s to the 1980s, but the usual list used is that endorsed by the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles and subsequently adopted by the Official Charts Company; the company regards a selected period of the New Musical Express chart and the Record Retailer chart from 1960 to 1969 as predecessors for the period prior to 11 February 1969, where multiples of competing charts coexisted side by side. For example, the BBC compiled its own chart based on an average of the music papers of the time; the first number one on the UK Singles Chart was "Here in My Heart" by Al Martino for the week ending date 14 November 1952. As of the week ending date 18 April 2019, the UK Singles Chart has had 1352 different number-one hits; the current number-one single is "Someone You Loved" by Lewis Capaldi.
Before the compilation of sales of records, the music market measured a song's popularity by sales of sheet music. The idea of compiling a chart based on sales originated in the United States, where the music-trade paper Billboard compiled the first chart incorporating sales figures on 20 July 1940. Record charts in the UK began in 1952, when Percy Dickins of the New Musical Express gathered a pool of 52 stores willing to report sales figures. For the first British chart Dickins telephoned 20 shops, asking for a list of the 10 best-selling songs; these results were aggregated into a Top 12 chart published in NME on 14 November 1952, with Al Martino's "Here in My Heart" awarded the number-one position. The chart became a successful feature of the periodical. Record Mirror compiled its own Top 10 chart for 22 January 1955; the NME chart was based on a telephone poll. Both charts expanded in size, with Mirror's becoming a Top 20 in October 1955 and NME's becoming a Top 30 in April 1956. Another rival publication, Melody Maker, began compiling its own chart.
It was the first chart to include Northern Ireland in its sample. Record Mirror began running a Top 5 album chart in July 1956. In March 1960, Record Retailer had a Top 50 singles chart. Although NME had the largest circulation of charts in the 1960s and was followed, in March 1962 Record Mirror stopped compiling its own chart and published Record Retailer's instead. Retailer began independent auditing in January 1963, has been used by the UK Singles Chart as the source for number-ones since the week ending 12 March 1960; the choice of Record Retailer as the source has been criticised. With available lists of which record shops were sampled to compile the charts some shops were subjected to "hyping" but, with Record Retailer being less followed than some charts, it was subject to less hyping. Additionally, Retailer was set up by independent record shops and had no funding or affiliation with record companies. However, it had a smaller sample size than some ri
Room on the 3rd Floor (song)
"Room on the 3rd Floor" is a song recorded by English pop rock band McFly. It was released on 15 November 2004 as the fourth and final single from their debut studio album of the same name; the song debuted at number five in the UK Singles Chart. The song appears as a B-side for the band's next single, "All About You/You've Got a Friend". "Room on the 3rd Floor" was written by band members Tom Danny Jones. The song is less uptempo than their previous singles, it was written during Fletcher and Jones' two-month stay at the InterContinental London, which they found a little tedious. The video depicts the band as small plastic models. During the shoot, the band were painted blue and digitally enhanced to make them look like plastic. McFly can be seen in full colour playing on the packaging box.

It was confirmed soon after by band member Tom Fletcher via Twitter that the band's next single would be the track "Red", as it had been well received on the tour. However, in September 2012, the band travelled to the United States to play four dates in Los Angeles and New York, during which they premiered a fourth new single, "Love is Easy", it was soon announced that this would in fact be released as the band's next single, instead of "Red", that it would precede the release of the band's second retrospective release, Memory Lane: The Best of McFly, it was announced that in promotion of the album, the band would be releasing their autobiography, Unsaid Things: Our Story. With the announcement of the track listing for Memory Lane in October 2012, "Love is Easy" and "Do Whatcha" were present, but "Red" and "Touch the Rain" were not, but instead had been held back for the band's sixth studio album, in favour of three other new tracks: "Cherry Cola", "Down Down" and "Mess Around You". "Love is Easy" was released on 11 November 2012, going on to peak at No. 10 on the UK Singles Chart, was premiered on BBC Radio 2 Graham Norton at 10:55 on 20 October 2012.
The music video for the track was premiered on 9 October 2012. The track listing of the album was confirmed on 11 October 2012, via Digital Spy. Disc two was set to contain the B-side track "Easy Way Out". However, pressings of the album do not contain the track, it has been removed from all digital versions of the album, for reasons unknown; the standard version contains disc one only, the deluxe version contains both discs. In promotion of the album, McFly toured across the United Kingdom in April and May 2013 with 21 performances, with an extra show at Scarborough added in August; the tour was supported by The Vamps.

"Mr. Brightside" is the first single released by American rock band The Killers, it was released as the band's debut is featured on their debut studio album Hot Fuss. Written by band members Brandon Flowers and Dave Keuning, this was one of the first songs the Killers wrote, it is written in the key of D-flat major. Two music videos were made for the song: the first, in black-and-white, features the band performing in an empty room; the second, filmed for the re-release, is based on the 2001 film Moulin Rouge! The song was released on September 29, 2003 and achieved minor success, it became more popular upon its re-release in 2004, peaking at number 10 in both the United States and the United Kingdom. It is The Killers' second best-selling song in the US. In the United Kingdom it is one of the top fifteen most downloaded rock tracks ever."Mr. Brightside" was named "Song of the Decade" by UK radio stations Absolute Radio and XFM, in April 2010 Last.fm revealed that it was the most listened to track since the launch of the online music service, with over 12.2 million plays.
In October 2010, it was voted ninth in the Greatest Guitar Riffs of the 21st Century so far by Total Guitar magazine. Additionally, in 2010 Rolling Stone listed "Mr. Brightside" as the forty-eighth best song of the twenty-first century. Lyrically, "Mr. Brightside" depicts the jealousy and paranoia of a man who suspects his significant other is cheating on him. Guitarist Dave Keuning composed the music before meeting Flowers. Flowers wrote lyrics and composed the chorus after hearing Keuning's ideas. Flowers credits the speed of the song's creation for the fact, he says, "We went in and made demos pretty after that, it took a ton of time. That's why there's not a second verse... I just didn't have any other lines and it ended up sticking." Drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. is credited with creating the fast-paced drum beat in the first twenty-two seconds. The "calling a cab" section of the song has both a musical and textual similarity to the middle section of the song "Queen Bitch" from David Bowie's album Hunky Dory."Mr. Brightside" was mixed for its inclusion on Hot Fuss by Mark Needham, along with business partners Braden Merrick and Jeff Saltzman.
The song was first created as a reference mix in just over half an hour "on an 8 input console, with no automation" according to Needham. Despite several subsequent remixes, the members of the Killers preferred the original one, which made it onto the record. In recording the vocal effects, Saltzman used Echo Farm, sticking with the default vocal effects setting. Needham describes it, saying it "overdrives the vocal a bit and sets an 84 ms delay." In their first performance together as The Killers and Keuning played Mr. Brightside as part of a two-song open-mic night set at Las Vegas' Cafe Roma. Of the performance, Flowers says "It was terrible, awful." In November 2001, the group had recorded "Mr. Brightside" along with three other demos including "Desperate", "Replaceable", "Under the Gun" at Mike Sak's Kill the Messenger Studio in Henderson, Nevada, they handed out a demo of the song for free during their shows in 2002. After signing with UK indie label Lizard King Records, the track was sent to radio as a buzz single and it received frequent spins by influential BBC Radio 1 DJ's Zane Lowe and Steve Lamacq as well as being play-listed by XFM.
Just one week after its April release, MTV2 secured a deal to air the song for a week. In one of the song's first reviews, The Washington Post stated that the song is "dashing through the tune as if it were a power ballad on speed and company had the capacity crowd pulsing along with glee." "Mr. Brightside" became a popular song within the Las Vegas music scene with one reviewer calling it a "feel-good anthem that ranks as one of the best local tracks in a long time." In a glowing review, NME said the song was filled with "ambition and noise". In an overwhelmingly positive review by Rolling Stone, the song was described as having "swelled with anthemic majesty". "Mr. Brightside" entered the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 40 on February 12, 2005, peaked at No. 10 on June 11, thus making it a sleeper hit. Two weeks after its peak at No. 10 on the Billboard charts, The Killers released their debut album Hot Fuss. The song reached 3.5 million in sales 2016. In 2005, "Mr. Brightside" was the sixth most downloaded song on iTunes.
To this day "Mr. Brightside" still has the highest popularity rating that iTunes offers after being available for purchase for over ten years. Additionally, sales of Hot Fuss album reached over 5 million sales by 2006; the online music streaming service Last.fm reported in 2010 that "Mr. Brightside" was the most downloaded song on the website. By July 2014, the song sold more than 820,000 copies in the United Kingdom, making it the UK's No. 12 most downloaded rock track of all time. In the list of songs which have spent the most weeks on the UK Singles Chart, "Mr. Brightside" is in first place, with 206 weeks in the Top 100; as of 2017, it had charted on the UK Singles Chart in 11 of the last 13 years. Including a 35-week run peaking at number 49 in 2016-2017, it was the UK's most streamed pre-2010 song, until it was surpassed by Oasis' "Wonderwall" in late 2018, continued to be purchased for download hundreds of times a week by 2017. In March 2018, the song reached the milestone of staying in the Top 100 of the UK Singles Chart for 200 weeks.
Explanations have included the song's popularity at parties, its popularity on streaming services, the continued presence of The Killers as a popular live band in the UK. There are two videos for this song: the first version was filmed in April 2004
McFly are an English rock band formed in London in 2003. The band took its name from the Back to the Future character Marty McFly; the band consists of Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd. They were signed to Island Records from their 2004 launch until December 2007, before creating their own label, Super Records. McFly rose to fame after fellow band Busted helped launch them by inviting them to tour in 2004. In 2005, they won the Brit Award for Best British Pop Act. McFly's debut album Room on the 3rd Floor debuted at number 1 in the UK Album Chart and is certified as double platinum. A month after the album was released, the band had their first UK headlining tour; the band's second album, released in 2005 charted at number 1 in the UK making them the youngest band to have topped the UK album charts twice. Their third album, Motion in the Ocean, was released on 6 November 2006 and charted at number 6 in the UK. McFly released their All the Greatest Hits compilation album on 5 November 2007, which charted at number 4 in the UK.
The band's fourth studio album, Radio:Active, was given away for free as a supplement in the Mail on Sunday on 20 July 2008, before being released in the conventional manner on 2 September 2008. Fifth album Above the Noise was released in November 2010 and charted at number 20; as of 2016, McFly have had 18 consecutive UK top 20 singles, seven of which reached number one in the UK Singles Chart and seventeen of which were consecutive top ten singles. According to the British Phonographic Industry, McFly has been certified for 1.8 million albums and 1.8 million singles in the UK. and more than 10 million records worldwide. In 2006, McFly appeared as themselves in the film Just My Luck, starring Lindsay Lohan and Chris Pine, they released a US album, Just My Luck, used as the film's soundtrack. They have performed at various charity projects such as Comic Relief, Children in Need, Live 8, Sport Relief and Earth Hour. In November 2013, it was announced that McFly would be joining forces with Busted to form the "supergroup" McBusted.
They played a 34-date tour with both McFly songs. The only member of the original groups not to participate in the new lineup was former Busted singer Charlie Simpson. After Simpson's return to Busted in November 2015, McFly made a return and sold out their Anthology Tour in September 2016. After that, the band took an indefinite hiatus, with their Twitter account confirming that the boys are focusing on solo projects in 2018. On January 5, 2019, Poynter confirmed via a podcast that the band would be reforming that year with a new album and tour. In 2001, Tom Fletcher lost out on the place to Charlie Simpson. Fletcher was accepted as part of Busted's line-up, but Island Records went on to reassess the situation and decided to have the band as a three-piece rather than a four-piece. Though the record label decided against offering Fletcher a place in Busted, they were intrigued by his songwriting talents and offered him a place on Busted's songwriting'team', alongside band member James Bourne.
While writing Busted's second album, A Present for Everyone, Fletcher was asked by the record label if he was available to film auditions for a new band, V. It was at this time that Fletcher met for the first time. Fletcher was impressed with Jones' unique style and so approached and invited him to write with himself and Bourne; when writing projects for Busted had come to an end, the two began collaborating for their own band and moved into the InterContinental Hotel in London for two months, to concentrate on writing together. Bassist Dougie Poynter and drummer Harry Judd were subsequently recruited via a classified advertisement in the NME magazine; the pair, both Essex lads, coincidentally turned up at the same audition and got to talking over their shared appreciation of the band The Starting Line, after Poynter noticed their name and logo was printed on Judd's T-shirt. McFly's early sound was surf/pop rock, their debut single, "5 Colours in Her Hair", released 29 March 2004, entered the UK Singles Chart at number 1 in April 2004 and stayed there the following week.
In July 2004 their second single, "Obviously" topped the charts. This was followed by the album Room on the 3rd Floor debuting at number 1 in the UK Albums Chart, it would go on to be certified double platinum by the British Phonographic Industry. The album broke records, as McFly earned an award from Guinness World Records for being the youngest band to have a debut album enter the charts in the top position, a distinction held by The Beatles; the idea for the album name came from where Jones and Fletcher wrote most of the songs for the album: room 363 in the InterContinental Hotel in London. The third single, "That Girl", was released on 6 September 2004, placing at number 3; the fourth single, Room on the 3rd Floor, the album's title track, was released on 15 November 2004 and reached number 5. McFly supported Busted on their nationwide arena tour along with V in February 2004 and had their first headlining tour in September 2004. In March 2005, McFly released a doub
"Please, Please" is a song by McFly from their third album Motion in the Ocean, released as a double A-side single with their cover version of the Queen song "Don't Stop Me Now". It was premiered on BBC Radio 1 on 7 June 2006; the single entered the UK Singles Chart on 23 July 2006 at number one, knocking "Smile" by Lily Allen off the top spot. It was the 1038th UK number one single, it reached number 15 in Ireland. "Please, Please" was written by all of McFly, Julian Emery and Jason Perry. The song is about the actress Lindsay Lohan because the lyrics mention a girl named Lindsay with red hair and green eyes, just like Lohan, the nurse in the video is named Lindsay Allbright while, in the film Just My Luck, Lindsay's on-screen character is called Ashley Allbright. A recurring line in the song is Please, Lindsay, please. Danny Jones wasn't so sure though. Tom revealed on the DVD single that it was the funnest video shoot other than "5 Colours in Her Hair". UK CD1"Don't Stop Me Now" - 3:24 "Please, Please" - 3:10UK CD2"Please, Please" - 3:10 "Don't Stop Me Now" - 3:24 "5 Colours in Her Hair" - 2:59 "5 Colours in Her Hair" - 3:33 "5 Colours in Her Hair" - 3:33 "Harry in India" - 6:38UK DVD Single"Please, Please" - 3:10 "Don't Stop Me Now" - 3:24 "I've Got You" - 3:27 "I've Got You" - 3:32 "Please, Please" - 3:15 "Behind the Scenes at the Video Shoot" - 2:00 Some of the money from any version of the single went to Sport Relief and as a result their version of "Don't Stop Me Now" was played across the BBC's sport programmes, including highlights from the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
It was the theme for the "Sport Relief Mile", which McFly took part in. For Sport Relief band member Harry Judd travelled to India with a collection of other British celebrities including presenter and comedian Nick Hancock and radio DJ and presenter Chris Evans. Whilst out in India, Harry took part in a cricket tournament, travelling across India's poorest areas and playing with everyone from the kids to the professionals, all in aid of Sport Relief; the video for "Please, Please" was the band's most "enjoyable video shoot". It was shot in an old hospital and featured each of the members McFly being admitted to hospital with various injuries and being taken care of by a red-headed nurse named Lindsay Albright; the video for "Please, Please" caused some controversy as the band appear naked in one scene, BBC and Channel 4 both refused to show the video though T4 on Channel 4 showed the exclusive of the video.
