After winning the hearts of 2.636 million* Australians last Sunday night, the soundtrack MOLLY: DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR, to the hit TV mini-series MOLLY (Channel Seven) 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 three CD 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.”

Michael Gudinski, Chairman Mushroom Group & Mushroom Pictures said of the result:

“Not only am I delighted at the response to MOLLY the mini series, but I’m thrilled that so much great Australian music is back in the spotlight again.  The MOLLY project has been a great passion of mine and Mushroom’s for some time now and it has been amazing to see the overwhelming love that Molly, the series and the music has received plus the much deserved acclaim for Samuel Johnson’s incredible portrayal of the man himself.

“If you don’t already own the #1 album in the country then I’m going to borrow my good friend Molly’s phrase – Do Yourself A Favour.”  

The eagerly anticipated second episode of MOLLY airs tomorrow night, Sunday February 14 on Seven at 8.30pm.  ‘MOLLY:  The Real Thing’ documentary coming soon to Seven.
