And by gaining her sixth No.1 here Pink has achieved the same tally of No.1’s as Abba, Dean Martin, Roy Orbison and The Rolling Stones (1940 to 2012), and in the ARIA era (1983 to 2012), she sits seventh on the list of acts with the most No.1’s, Gavin Ryan reports.

Most No.1’s during ARIA era:

1 – Madonna (11 No.1’s)
2 – Kylie Minogue (10)
3 = Delta Goodrem / Black Eyed Peas (8)
5 = Eminem / Rihanna (7)
7 – P!nk (6)
8 = George Michael / Britney Spears / Justin Timberlake / U2 / Guy Sebastian (5)

“Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” is the 64th No.1 for the RCA record label in Australia, the last being Kelly Clarkson’s “Mr. Know it All” (Oct 2011), and it’s the first time that the word ‘Blow’ has made it to No.1, but we have had ‘One Last Kiss’ at the top before, as Crash Craddock had that song title make it to the top for a single week in March of 1961. Also P!nk’s song becomes the 650th No.1 performed by an American artist, and “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” is the 994th No.1 in Australia (1940 to 2012), the 428th for ARIA (1983 to 2012) and the tenth No.1 for 2012.

Holding onto their No.2 spot from last week are fun with “Some Nights”, which is bound to go to the top when they are in the country in a couple of weeks. Rudimental and John Newman jump up three places to a new peak of No.3 with “Feel the Love”, and Katy Perry is “Wide Awake” for a third week at No.4. But jumping up nineteen places to No.5 is Justice Crew with their new track “Boom Boom”, which becomes their first ever Top 10 entry from four chart placements so far.

Flo Rida and Rudimental swap places this week, with the eight week running “Whistle” for Flo dropping three places to No.6. “This is Love” for Will.i.am and Eva Simons returns to its No.7 peak, swapping places with “Don’t Wake Me Up” for Chris Brown which is down a place to No.8. “Payphone” for Maroon 5 is down four spots to No.9 and down one to No.10 is “The Fighter” for Gym Class Heroes and Ryan Tedder.

NEW PEAKS & MOVERS: Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen jump up four places to No.11 with “Good Time” as Carly’s “Call Me Maybe” finally leaves the Top 10 (to No.15 TW) after 16 weeks inside the top ten. “Tonight is the Night” by Outasight made it to No.20 in mid-May, but this week jumps back up the chart thirty-eight places to a new peak of No.18 thanks to it being used in the promos for Channel 10’s new reality-based series ‘The Shire’.

As Maroon 5 just announced their tour of Australia for October, their new single “One More Night” is also up thirty-eight places, this week it’s at No.21, and right behind at No.22 is the third single for Timomatic, “Can You Feel it”, up three places from last week debut position.

The third 38 place jump of the week is for Missy Higgins, who is at No.31 with “Everyone’s Waiting”, up from last weeks No.69 spot. Matchbox 20 is up six places to No.32 with “She’s So Mean”, and after falling a little last week, Train’s new track “50 Ways to Say Goodbye” is back up sixteen places to a new peak of No.33. And in a block of four new peaks in a row, No.34 see The Black Keys and “Gold on the Ceiling” rise up three places. Final new peak within the Top 50 goes to The Temper Trap and “Trembling Hands” up a couple of spots to No.45.

DOWN DOWN: Last weeks No.1 debut for Reece Mastin “Shout it out” falls out of the Top 10 to No.12, becoming the second track this year to spend only a week in the Top 10 and at No.1, with Karise Eden’s “Stay with Me Baby” being the other. And Karise’s only Top 100 entry this week is “You Won’t Let Me” (HP-5), which drops fifteen spots to No.42, whilst Delta’s “Sitting on Top of the World” is down eleven spots to No.43. We also say goodbye from the entire Top 100 for Sarah De Bono’s No.50 debut from last week “No Shame”.

Flo Rida debuts at No.44 with the track “Run” from his “Wild Ones” (TW-7) album featuring RedFoo from LMFAO as guest vocalist, and the song features an interpolation of the Bryan Adams 1985 single “Run to You”. Flo also places the song “In My Mind (Part 2)” featuring Georgi Kay into the Top 100 at No.74. With the title track from his album at No.56 plus his “Whistle” inside the Top 10, Flo has four songs within the Top 100 this week.

Lower 50: Cheryl (Cole) jumps up ten places to No.51 with her latest single “Call My Name”; Cher Lloyd and Astro hit a new peak of No.61 with “Want U Back”, and The Wanted climb three spots to a new peak of No.65 with “Chasing the Sun”.

Returning to the lower fifty are “Make it Bun Dem” for Skrillex at No.52; “Pursuit of Happiness” for Kid Cudi (HP-41, Feb 2010) in back at No.55; “Around My Way” by Lupe Fiasco at No.70, “Dedication to My Ex” for Lloyd and Andre 3000 at No.89; “Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson at No.94 and “As Long as You Love Me” for Justin Bieber at No.97.

Florence + the Machine debut at No.57 with the “Spectrum (Say My Name)” EP; Elton John and Pnau enter at No.71 with the teamed-track “Good Morning to the Night”; Chiddy Bang feat Icona Pop are in at No.72 with “Mind Your Manners”. Returning to the Top 100 at No.88 is George Michael with his new track “White Light”, and the last new entry of the week comes in at No.93 for local indie group Loon Lake and their track “Cherry Lips”.

The ARIA chart is updated at 6pm on Sundays.
