It's Number One!

It's Number One!

Postby Call_of_the_Wendigo on Sat Oct 16, 2010 9:48 pm

Sadly, it's become clear that many of us are a little out of touch with the current world of chart music. Therefore, here's where we can post whatever's Number One on the singles chart in the week in question and pass judgement on it, and no doubt moan that pop music was so much better in our day, when they had bands who could play their instruments and you could tell whether they were boys or girls, and they had tunes you could sing along to and words that meant something. Those of us whom are living outside the UK can of course post whatever's Number One in their own National Chart if they so wish.

As I'm sure we all know, the current Number One in Britland is Forget You by Cee Lo Green. I'm sure even the most unhip of us remember his monster smash-hit Crazy, wot he did as part of Gnarls Barkley but here's his latest waxing.



Well, that was all nice and old-fashioned and reassuring for those of us of a certain age, wasn't it? To me he still sounds like Nina Simone, otherwise known as that woman who was famous for being a bit grumpy.

Apparently, that was the Radio Version. I hope that doesn't mean there's a version out there with naughty words on it. :nono:

Just like Crazy it's a perfectly agreeable bit of pop-soul.

Good for Cee-Lo. :)

So that's the middle age market sorted out, what do the young people think?

I think it's boring and ordinary. There's nothing original or unique about it - apart from the obvious.

Barbra Streisand by Duck Sauce to be this week's number one! :cheer:

Is that a likelihood or just a hope? I must admit I'm not familiar with the track.

yousername posted it a few days ago. It's all over Radio 1 at the moment and it's great. Based on an olde Boney M song too, with Ms. Streisand's name mentioned a few times throughout. :shifty:

:banana:


It was released this week and I think it's going to be in the top 5 at least.

Oh my God, wasn't that sample used on the old (and evil) Stars On 45 records? To quote Xena; "Kill them! Kill them all!"

I dont approve of naughty words in pop songs so I wont bother with that song. Im a bit prudish in that area, although its perfectly ok when its done by the Exploited or the Dead Kennedys.

Ive had to look at the current New Zealandland chart and apparently Bruno Mars has been number one for weeks and weeks and weeks. I dont remember the name of the song but know I'll recognise it as Im an avid radio listener at the moment. Although most of my radio listening consists of me angrily changing stations every 3 seconds shouting about how crap all music is.

I'm a trend setter :excited:

I liked the Ceelo song. But the clean version is crapcakes. The original sounds a lot better, and, because the governing body doesn't realise that everyone in Austria speaks Engrish, the naughty naughty version is played on TV/the radio all the time. Hurrah!

Cee Lo's still Number One. That Duck Sauce thing has only entered at Number Three. I can't wish well to anything that reminds me of Stars On 45 - or Jive Bunny. :cheer:

Nah. It's rubbish. I preferred Παπαρίζου by Δεν αλλάζω. That was much better. I can't help feeling they're just repeating themselves now. :yes:

After the excitement of Cyprus, heres this weeks brand new New Zealandland number 1. Oddly enough, even though I live here and often listen to the radio, just like yourselves Ive never heard this song before!



Still waiting to find out whats this weeks big hit in Austria. :snail:
