Can I try a repechage for Stacy’s Mom?

Short of that, I’ll nominate Where the Wild Roses Grow by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds with Kylie Minogue.

Loaded by Primal Scream.

Also (sorry don't mean to be that guy) I don't think the 'weeks on chart' numbers have increased since last week. Or is that just me?

PS no particular rules for renominating as age of the song has no bearing here. I'll reinclude Stacy's mom next week
