After winning the hearts of more than 2 million Australians last Sunday night, the soundtrack MOLLY: DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR, to the hit TV mini-series MOLLY has leapt to number one on the national ARIA Album chart and has been certified platinum with sales over 70,000.

The man of the moment – Molly Meldrum – received the news that the album had topped the charts while recovering from broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder after falling in a Bangkok street.

“Talk about Pleasure & Pain!” he said, referring to one of his favourite Divinyls songs.

Molly actually went to Thailand to avoid all the hype surrounding the mini-series.
“I wanted to be Out of Mind, Out of Sight,” he joked, “but my One Night In Bangkok didn’t turn out exactly as planned. I’ve now got to learn to Walk Like An Egyptian again.”

“All jokes aside, I’m so pleased that people have embraced this album. For me, it’s always been all about the music and it’s fantastic that these great songs are bringing back so many memories for so many people, as well as being enjoyed by a new generation of fans.”

“As the Village People said … you Can’t Stop The Music.”
