GOATS HEAD SOUP By THE STONES No.1 AGAIN
jeanniejeanniejeannie.co.uk BLOG Wednesday16th September 2020
The Rolling Stones clinched this week’s Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart at the final hour with Goats Head Soup, following an extremely close battle with midweek leader Declan McKenna.
Finishing the week just over 800 sales ahead and leading on physical copies, this is the second occasion that Goats Head Soup has landed the Number 1 spot – it originally debuted at the top of the charts on its release in 1973.
In landing a Number 1 today, the Official Charts Company can confirm that The Rolling Stones set a new record, becoming the first band in Official Chart history to score a Number 1 album across six different decades.
Other notable acts who managed Number 1s in five separate decades include The Beatles, Elvis and Bob Dylan. Plus individual members of bands who also enjoyed chart-topping success across multiple decades include the likes of Paul Weller (5), David Gilmour (5), Paul McCartney (6) and John Lennon (6) – all of whom found success as solo artists and/or with other bands.
The Rolling Stones now have 13 Number 1 albums (including reissues Exile On Main St and Goats Head Soup), putting them equal with Elvis and Robbie Williams – only The Beatles have achieved more Number 1 albums in the UK (17 including two reissues).
Landing at Number 2 this week – though not without a fight – Declan McKenna scores a personal best; Zeros becomes his highest charting album yet and snags the title of the UK’s most downloaded album of the week. His debut album, 2017’s What Do You Think About The Car? went to Number 11 on its release.
The 21-year-old also proves the most popular record of the week in UK independent record shops, claiming Number 1 on the Official Record Store Chart.

For me and Mamma this is particularly interesting because The Stones’ Goats Head Soup album first hit No.1 in September 1973 and we were married in September 1973. What is even more of a coincidence is the album was No.1 again in September 2020 when we celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary. Weird eh?

FATHER OF THE BRIDE – FILM
Father of the Bride is a 1991 American comedy film starring Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Kimberly Williams (in her film debut), George Newbern, Martin Short, B. D. Wong, and Kieran Culkin. It is a remake of the 1950 film of the same name. Martin portrays George Banks, a businessman and owner of an athletic shoe company (called Side Kicks), who, when he finds out his daughter is getting married, does not want to give her away. He eventually learns to live with his new son-in-law and realizes that as long as his daughter is happy, he is happy.
The film opened to positive reviews, and became a major box office success, earning more than six times its budget. With its success, a sequel, Father of the Bride Part II was released in 1995. This was Nancy Meyers and Diane Keaton’s second of four films together, the first being Baby Boom (1987); the others were Father of the Bride Part II (1995) and Something’s Gotta Give (2003).
Production Budget $20 million
Box office $129 million
