"While no one title is dominating, various artists are showing solid sales strength across the board. It is indeed a happy holiday."

BEATLES' "1" IS
THE ONLIEST NUMBER
Fab Four Overtakes Backstreet, as Shaggy finds "Hotshot" In The Top 10
The holiday season is about giving…you giving to us. Thank you.

Happily, folks, the year 2000 is almost over. Soon, we'll go back to where we came from and flush.

But before that, we better give you the obligatory album-chart rundown. Here goes: The holiday marketplace is very healthy, thanks to #1 Beatles, #2 Backstreet Boys and #3 "NOW Vol. 5." Shaggy bounces into the Top 10 at #9. The biggest debut of the week belongs to #11 Rage Against The Machine. Memphis Bleek comes on at #20, while K-Ci & JoJo bows at #24.

Now it's time for an obligatory retail quote from an obligatory retail quoter. Let's give a warm, almost-year-end welcome to HMV's Ken Feldman, shall we? "While no one title is dominating, various artists are showing solid sales strength across the board. It is indeed a happy holiday," said Kenbo tugging gently on his Yule log.

Next week, Xzibit, which hit retail today, enters the charts with "Restless," while Snoop Dogg's eagerly awaited "Tha Last Meal" arrives Dec. 19.
