Scissor Sisters Dance Rings Around The Killers

Oooh, owch! In a week that looked like it belonged to The Killers, Scissor Sisters stomped them with platform heels to maintain their #1 position on the official UK singles chart. Brandon Flowers and Co., much like Keane two years ago, have proven to be no match for the NYC-based glam quintet abroad...so far, at least. Meanwhile, zap over to Paul's site to download the BBC radio rip of future Killers single, "Bones." It's heaven for the ears.

Some interesting things happen this week in the lower echelons of the Top 10. Cascada actually rebounds with their international dance hit "Everytime We Touch," and it hops back up to #7. And all hope doesn't seem to be lost for Jamelia, as "Something About You" not only remains in the top tier this week, but also moves up a notch to #9. Also, Pink grabs the tail of Cascada and finds her weeks-old single "U + Ur Hand" slips into the Top 10 for the first time. It's a shame this one and "Who Knew" didn't become hits over here, for whatever mysterious reason.

Further down, Pussycat Dolls have finally put out the best song off their album as a single, and "I Don't Need A Man" debuts at #21.

The UK Top 10:

1. "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'" - Scissor Sisters *3 weeks*
2. "When You Were Young" - The Killers
3. "SexyBack" - Justin Timberlake
4. "Promiscuous" - Nelly Furtado feat. Timbaland
5. "London Bridge" - Fergie
6. "Hips Don't Lie" - Shakira feat. Wyclef Jean
7. "Everytime We Touch" - Cascada
8. "Chasing Cars" - Snow Patrol
9. "Something About You" - Jamelia
10. "U + Ur Hand" - Pink

    Glad to see Timbaland's projects getting beat by Scissors and Killers. Of course Scissors will not have that impact in the US...

    Also happy to see Jamelia lingering.

    interesting to see Lily Allen debut in top 30 with LDN on downloads - i know you will be eagerly anticipating where that climbs to next week D'Luv!

    I was waiting in vain for Paul to make a Jamelia "fingering" pun.

    Yeah, it's the second week in a row where there was actually fun stuff to write about the Top 10. And yes, Paul, I'm soooo excited for Lily Allen to prove to be a one-hit wonder ;)

    I'm telling you, the Killers are SOOOO 2004. I've been reading bad, bad reviews...

    And give me a break, Brandon Flowers-- there's nothing worse than a queen trying to act butch-- just take a look at that "Fightin' D'Luv" photo posted a few days ago.

    I believe this is the third comment you've made on the Fightin' D'luv. Take a cold shower, laddie...
