‘Saltburn’ Sends ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’ Into Australia’s Top 40

Sophie Ellis-Bextor is murdering Australia’s singles chart, too.

The British pop veteran’s 2021 hit “Murder On The Dancefloor” (Universal) returns to the top 40 on the ARIA Singles Chart, published Friday, Jan. 12, powered by the dark-energy of Saltburn.

“Murder On The Dancefloor” shuffles to No. 25 on the latest tally, still some way off its peak of No. 3, achieved more than 22 years ago.

The song is enjoying fresh life thanks to its appearance late in the hit Amazon Prime film, which stars Australian newcomer Jacob Elordi, and is separately making climbs up the Billboard Hot 100 and Official U.K. Singles Chart.

“Murder” is platinum certified in Australia and is one of Ellis-Bextor’s three top five hits in these parts, including Spiller’s 2000 leader “Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love),” for which she was the uncredited vocalist.

At the pointy end of the ARIA Single Chart is Jack Harlow’s “Lovin On Me” (Atlantic/Warner), which enters an eighth non-consecutive week at No. 1. “Lovin On Me” was bounced from the summit when the Christmas songs chimed in, then returned to the top when the fest season came to a close.

Tate McRae’s “Greedy” (RCA/Sony) is unmoved at No. 2 while U.S. singer and songwriter Noah Kahan continues his ascent with “Stick Season” (Universal), up 6-3. That’s easily Kahan’s best-performing single in Australia, eclipsing the No. 14 peak for 2017’s “Hurt Somebody” and the No. 45 peak for 2023’s “Dial Drunk.” “Stick Season” is the current No. 1 in the U.K., his first leader there.

Taylor Swift has just been crowned queen of Australia’s year-end 2023 albums chart, with 1989 (Taylor’s Version) (via Universal), having dominated the previous year’s ARIA tally with Midnights. Some things never change. 1989 (Taylor’s Version) holds at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart for its 11th straight week, while Midnights is unchanged at No. 3. Swift, whose The Eras Tour winds its way to Australia next month, has five of the top 10 titles on the latest weekly tally.
