Lady GaGa Wraps Her Vinyl Thighs Around The Top Of The U.K. Chart, Too

So, I've been listening to Lady GaGa's The Fame for the past couple days, given that she topped the U.S. chart this week, the U.K. chart today and, inevitably, is pretty much inescapable anymore.

I'm leaning toward thinking "Boys Boys Boys" is pretty groovy—particulary the line, Let's go see The Killers and make out in the bleachers.

Yeah, I know—I'm a little late to this party. But what can I say, I'm a bit dubious when it comes to hyped sluts in leather. Plus, "Just Dance" isn't really that great. There are far better tracks on the album.

Anyway, The Saturdays score their third Top 10 hit in a row with "Issues" this week, which has landed at #6. Previously, their debut single "If This Is Love" peaked at #8 in August, while "Up" made it to #5 in October.

I gotta say, out of all the big-release pop albums to come along in the past few months, The Saturdays' Chasing Lights is the one still in heavy rotation on the stereo D'luv. It's now re-entered the Brit album chart at #36.

A bit higher up on the LP tally, Kylie Minogue's Boombox—The Remix Album: 2000-2008 debuts at #28, while Take That's The Circus is finally knocked off the #1 slot after five week by Kings Of Leon.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "Just Dance" - Lady GaGa feat. Colby Adonis *1 week*
2. "Broken Strings" - James Morrison feat. Nelly Furtado
3. "Hallelujah" - Alexandra Burke
4. "Run" - Leona Lewis
5. "Use Somebody" - Kings Of Leon
6. "Issues" - The Saturdays
7. "If I Were A Boy" - Beyoncé
8. "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)'" - Beyoncé
9. "Hot N Cold" - Katy Perry
10. "Let It Rock" - Kevin Rudolf feat. Lil Wayne

    Glad to see that you've given the Gaga a chance, at least. As you say, escaping her lately is, well, impossible.

    I think "The Fame" is a far better track than "Just Dance".

    "Poker Face" is probably a better song, but there's no denying that this might be the beginning of a dance music infiltration of the pop charts, and we have Akon to thank. Nikki French smells a comeback, but it's really just her hair color burning her scalp.

    I think Lady Gaga's "nothing else left to say" is pretty eurotastic. It sounds like a leftover from the lucky twice recording sessions.

    BTW, Happy new year D'luv.

    the saturdays have grown on me quite a bit too. Issues is a pretty song and i'm hoping that their 4th single Work will solidify their status as the new??? the new what, i'm not exactly sure - somewhere between girls aloud and sugababes?

    This is great news for the girls. Secures them a 4th single and most importantly another album.
