oooohhhhh, the top 10 is getting no better, although there are freakily 4 alright songs this week (Britney, Pink, Ja Rule and that Christina Milian thing). But none of them are stuff to get wildly excited about, and the rest are pure crap. (As much as I love the Beatles, 'My Sweet Lord' is a) shit and b) only there because he's dead, which is a slightly warped reason to buy a single.) Afroman, for god's sake. Watching TOTP is soooo depressing nowadays. At least Mercury Rev got to #16 last week with 'The Dark Is Rising', but it's unbelievable at how bad the taste of the British record-buying public is.

Mary Cherry - It was a new release in last weeks chart and it debuted at number 9 (their highest placing yet i think) but this week it dropped to number 17.

Satrista7 - it is really unusual to get four songs like that out in one week.
i think the british charts are bad cause they are ruled by teenage girls. i think places like America are better because quality gets to number one their and it very rarely does here.
Like Aaliyah did and that was a great tune, but MJB didnt. Family Affair was totally hot. should have been number one. If westlife brought it out it would have been number one then.

Kisha - I know, teenage girls aren't renowned for their music taste! Urgh, the horrific though of Westlife doing Family Affair - yeuch, they'd smother it in saccharine, it'd be awful! I still can't believe Get Ur Freak On didn't get to #1 - clearly THE single of 2001. (Although of my fave 5 singles last year, 3 didn't get into the top 20 - PJ Harvey, the White Stripes and Meanwhile Back In Communist Russia).

I have a horrible feeling Aaliyah only got to #1 because she was dead. I'd like to believe it was because MTAW was a quality tune, which it was, but...

Anyway, we should console ourselves with the fact that the charts mean nothing about a song's quality! The best stuff never gets to #1.

yeah! i can just say that i hate being british when it comes to music, no talent like Geri get all the money and chart positions and quality gets left at the bottom. Beverley knght should be number one - not geri halliwell!

Geri Halliwell ::shudder::

how can one woman possess so little talent? she scares me, actually - look at her eyes in the video for her butchering of 'It's Raining Men', they're the eyes of a fame-crazed lunatic.

ah well, in ten year's time she'll be long forgotten by everyone except those people who make those 'i love 1987' programmes.

Thanks for posting that, Kisha - since I left the uk its a bit difficult to keep up with what´s going on...doesn´t look like I´m missing much though! I dont like a single song in the top ten. When does Nelly Furtado´s new single come out in the uk, or is it already?

JonBcn - if you mean 'Shit On The Radio' (cunningly censored to '.... On The Radio'), I think it's been and gone... I think it made the top 20. I can't make up my mind on Nelly Furtado. 'I'm Like A Bird' seriously irritated me, then 'Turn Off The Light' was fantastic. This one's a bit weak... anyway she's totally ripped off Imani Coppola's image and got famous with it so

Man, I cant believe that was such a flop! it was my favourite from the album.
Sartrista; I know what you mean about Nelly, I really hated I´m Like a Bird, but loved Turn off the Lights, so I got the album and its great. Theres such a diverse mix of styles, and I find it really refreshing, it always puts me in a good mood. I´m not sure about the Imani Coppola thing; I really liked what I read in the press about her when she first came out, but I dont think she followed it up with much substance. What impresses me most about Nelly is that she wrote the album aged 19, plays loads of instruments on it, and self-produced most of it. (Debbie Gibson comparisons end there). And the couple of songs in Portuguese are really nice, a great language to sing!

Imani Coppola did have a pretty good album, 'Chupacabra', but she wasn't marketed and promoted to the extent that Nelly has. Cynical old me thinks it's because radio DJs here can't pronounce her name. Also whereas Nelly is 'slightly eccentric' Imani is properly mad (sings about aliens, drugs etc.). The difference is illustrated by the fact that, whilst Nelly uses simile ('I'm Like A Bird'), Imani uses metaphor ('I'm A Tree'), which is far more effective in song titles.
