No Sales Boost For Drink-Addled Keane

Golly, the UK Top 10 singles used to be something to look forward to -- an ever-changing turnstile of pop delight. But these days, it's yawn city. Beyoncé slams her booty into the top position this week, a feat she was unable to do with "Déjà Vu" here in the States. And Snow Patrol climb to a new high with their Little Single That Could, "Chasing Cars." But surprisingly, a rehab scandal did nothing to help Keane's under-appreciated "Crystal Ball," which charts lowly at #20.

Next weekend's top single in both the UK and the U.S. is surely to be Justin Timberlake's "SexyBack" -- he debuts in England at #13 based on downloads alone. This week the tune was added to the U.S. iTunes store, as well, where it's sitting at #1. Going in a few notches down at #17 is "In The Future When All's Well," the third single off whatever that last CD was Morrissey put out. Finally, the amazingly rad-tastic "Never Be Lonely" by The Feeling enters at #24. The commercial single is out in Britain tomorrow.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Déjà Vu" - Beyoncé feat. Jay-Z *1 week*
2. "Hips Don't Lie" - Shakira feat. Wyclef Jean
3. "Ridin'" - Chamillionaire feat. Krayzie Bone
4. "Everytime We Touch" - Cascada
5. "Love Don't Let Me Go (Walking Away)" - Dave Guetta Vs. The Egg
6. "Me & U" - Cassie
7. "Chasing Cars" - Snow Patrol
8. "Leave Before The Lights Come On" - Arctic Monkeys
9. "Voodoo Child" - Rogue Traders
10. "You Give Me Something" - James Morrison

    Doesn't the end of Never Be Lonely (last minute) make you so HAPPY?

    I'm quite fond of the intro, actually, with the overflowing guitar sass...

    I think that Beyonce is the right woman to be in the top, because she sings precious, she has a perfect body, and also she's really talented.
