I "The Promise" Not To Trash Girls Aloud Today

There's a popular misconception that D'luv thinks Girls Aloud are a mangy pack of Z-grade dames with all the talent of a dead whore baking in the sun and decomposing on a rock at the beach.

But 'tis not so!

Ever since their magnificent single "Call The Shots" made it to Chart Rigger's "Best of the Year" list last December, I've warmed up to these strippers.

And while their new jam "The Promise" doesn't come close to "Call The Shots," it nevertheless tops the U.K. chart this week, ironically the same week the similarly '60s-influenced "Girls" by Sugababes gets bumped out of the Top 10.

All in all, "The Promise" is the Girls' 19th single, and their fourth U.K. #1—the last of which was the godawful "Walk This Way" duet with Sugababes.

Elsewhere, there's the 2008 update of Guru Josh's "Infinity" at #3...but, you know—NEEEXT!

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "The Promise" - Girls Aloud *1 week*
2. "So What" - Pink
3. "Infinity 2008" - Guru Josh Project *new*
4.
"Sex On Fire" - Kings Of Leon
5. "Wire To Wire'" - Razorlight *new*
6. "Up'" - The Saturdays
7. "Hot N Cold" - Katy Perry
8. "Love Lockdown" - Kanye West
9. "Raindrops (Encore Une Fois)" - Sash feat. Stunt
10. "The Winner's Song" - Geraldine
