The front-runners on Billboard's pan-European sales charts both extend their stays at No. 1, AC/DC's "Iron Man 2" soundtrack (Columbia/Sony Music Entertainment) for a fourth week on European Albums and Stromae for an eighth non-consecutive week atop European Hot 100 Singles with "Alors On Danse" (Mosaert/Vertigo).
"Iron Man 2" continues to hold sway in Austria and the Belgian region of Flanders, and although it dips 1-2 in Ireland and Switzerland, it moves 2-1 in Sweden, as well as 5-2 in Hungary and 4-3 in Italy.
Week number 70 on the European listings for Lady Gaga's "The Fame" (Interscope/Universal) has the album holding at No. 2, as it moves 5-4 in the United Kingdom, 16-5 in Austria and 9-7 in Portugal. With her "Fame Monster" title charting separately and rising again 44-35 overall, Gaga now has three albums on the pan-European list, as "The Remix" debuts at No. 7. A 17-track collection of remixes from the parent album, it arrives at No. 3 in the United Kingdom, No. 10 in Ireland and climbs 12-6 in Wallony.
