    Madonna ties with Elvis for singles chart record By Fred Bronson 39 minutes ago

    LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - As Madonna's "Hung Up" jumps seven places to No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, the pop icon matches Elvis Presley's tally for top-10 hits -- 36, the most for any artist in the rock era.

    Madonna racked up that tally in about 21 and a half years, starting with "Borderline." Presley scored his 36 top 10 hits in 16 and a half years, from 1956 with "Heartbreak Hotel" until 1972 with "Burning Love."

    "Hung Up" is Madonna's highest-charting single in almost five years, since "Don't Tell Me" reached No. 4 in February 2001. It is her first top 10 hit since her James Bond theme song "Die Another Day" hit No. 8 in 2002. Madonna already held the record for the most top 40 hits by a solo female artist; she continues in first place as "Hung Up" becomes her 45th top 40 hit, out of 51 chart entries. Aretha Franklin is in second place with 43.
    The parent album for "Hung Up" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. "Confessions on a Dance Floor" is Madonna's sixth album to achieve pole position.
    Her No. 1 albums to date are:
    "Like a Virgin," three weeks (1985)
    "True Blue," five weeks (1986)
    "Like a Prayer," six weeks (1989)
    "Music," one week (2000)
    "American Life," one week (2003)
    "Confessions on a Dance Floor," one week to date (2005)

    Well, no matter what you think of her music, you have to admit that is VERY impressive. Especially from a female who's music ranges as much as hers.
    "Tonight I wash my hands of you
    You set the bar I could not live up to
    Tonight the light is breaking through
    So thank you very little and send me postcards from hell"
