Hell To The Chiefs

Yuck. Kaiser Chiefs are #1 this week on the official U.K. singles chart with "Ruby." At least Mika finally hit the road.

Kind of a dull week with not much new to cover for the most part, but..

Kudos to Kelis for having the best song off the highly undervalued Kelis Was Here make it all the way to #3. Also, Sophie Ellis-Bextor finally makes a decent jump to #8 with "Catch You," giving her a sixth British Top 10 hit post-Spiller. Take That's physical single for "Shine" is out tomorrow, but after weeks of crawling up the chart, it reaches a new high of #10 off downloads alone.

"Shine" marks the group's fifteenth Top 10 hit in the U.K.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "Ruby" - Kaiser Chiefs *1 week*
2. "Grace Kelly" - Mika
3. "Lil Star" - Kelis feat. Cee-Lo
4. "I Wanna Love You" - Akon feat. Snoop Dogg
5. "How To Save A Life" - The Fray
6. "Starz In Their Eyes" - Just Jack
7. "The Sweet Escape" - Gwen Stefani feat. Akon
8. "Catch You" - Sopie Ellis-Bextor
9. "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race" - Fall Out Boy
10. "Shine" - Take That

New poll up now in the sidebar.

    oh you must be loving the charts right now - the chiefs topping it (!) (to which i say hurrah) and lily climbing slowly with alfie on downloads alone (plus doing v well in the album charts). My only consolation for Rose by the feeling doing so badly is it was a fifth single and the album is still selling loads :) I'm eager for Shine by Mark Owen ft Take That to rocket up the charts next week. Recommended: doing a you tube search for "dancing on ice take that shine" Genius
