The British Hit Singles website reveals the significance of the number three for Atomic Kitten hitting number one again yesterday. Here are another couple of number three-related stats they haven't mentioned:
1) When Blondie made #1 with the same song in 1980, it was their THIRD number one of the year, after Atomic and Call Me.
2) Atomic Kitten's number one means that this is the THIRD week in total that The Tide Is High has been at #1, as Blondie's version stayed there for two weeks.

The tide is very high indeed in fact, as a complete atomic tidal wave has washed Blazin' Squad away to the straggly seaweed of #2. (Am I carrying this analogy too far?) Last week, they were number one with only just over 50,000 sales of Crossroads. This week, they've sold a respectable enough 35,000 or so, but The Kittens outsold them by a staggering 110,000. Miaow!
