Sendit [Sendit - Charts]
It seems as though the Sendit (was called BlackStar) charts are updated daily, so I've decided to just record the Monkey videos' highest chart positions here:
Monkey video 1: 2 [First reached this position on Monday 10 April 2000 - kept from the top slot by Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace]
Monkey video 2: 2 [First reached this position on Thursday 13 April 2000 - kept from the top slot by Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace]
Monkey video 3: Number 1 on its second day of release!!!! (Tuesday 9 May 2000)
Monkey video 4: 3 (date unknown)
Monkey video 5: Number 1 on its second day of release!!!! (Tuesday 11 July 2000)
Monkey video 6: Number 1 on its day of release!!!! (Monday 7 August 2000)

[Tuesday 4 April 2000]
On its second day of release, the 1st Monkey video was #5 in the Sendit Top 30 Videos This Week chart!!!

HMV
[Thursday 20 July 2000]
Monkey video 5 listed at number 12 in the HMV Video chart! Video was listed as:
"Monkey - Minx and the Slug"

[Friday 30 June 2000]
Monkey video 4 listed at number 8 in the HMV Video chart! Video was listed as:
"Monkey - The Beginning of Wisdom"

[Sunday 21 May 2000]
Monkey video 3 listed at number 12 in the HMV Video chart! Video was listed as:
"Monkey - The Beginning of Wisdom"

[Sunday 16 April 2000]
Both Monkey videos have left the HMV top 20 videos chart.

[Sunday 9 April 2000]
Both Monkey videos listed at number 14 in the HMV Video chart! Both videos were listed together as:
"Monkey - Goes Wild & Swallows The Universe"

[Sunday 2 April 2000]
Even though Monkey hasn't been released yet, it's already listed at number 19 in the HMV Video chart! Both videos are listed together as:
"Monkey - Goes Wild & Swallows The Universe"

I guess this means they've had a _lot_ of preorders for Monkey. This is very impressive, particularly since Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace is released tomorrow, at the same time as Monkey, and it doesn't figure on the HMV Video chart at all!
