Sorry, Shontelle, But Here's A Much Better Version Of 'T-Shirt'

First off, how did one of Chart Rigger's 10 Worst Singles Of 2008 slink into the U.K. Top 10 this week? Yes, I'm talkin' about you and your "T-Shirt," Shontelle! Geez, someone really oughtta class this broad up a bit with some decent songs. (Although the fact that her album is called Shontelligence makes me think she probably at least does oral on the first date.)

Anyway, here's a much more enjoyable version of "T-Shirt," by these two little Irish U.K.-based (ahem!) dames, Ioanna and Eissa:

Second of all, Alesha Dixon shimmies up to #3 with "Breathe Slow" like an itchy stripper who smells a dollar bill at the top of the pole.

Fifth, The Prodigy (or is it just Prodigy this time around?) land their first British Top 10 hit since 2002. The band, now featuring all its original members for the first time in 12 years, sees "Omen" debut at #8.

And, yes, folks, this is really what there is to work with this week. Well, Lily Allen's It's Not Me, It's You debuted at #1 on the album chart...that's something right?

Fuck it, I'm going to eat nachos.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "The Fear" - Lily Allen *3 weeks*
2. "Just Dance" - Lady GaGa feat. Colby Adonis
3. "Breathe Slow" - Alesha Dixon
4. "Crack A Bottle" - Eminem feat. Dr. Dre & 50 Cent
5. "Take Me Back" - Tinchy Stryder feat. Taio Cruz
6. "Broken Strings" - James Morrison feat. Nelly Furtado
7. "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)'" - Beyonce
8. "Omen'" - The Prodigy *new*
9. "Day 'n' Night" - Kid Cudi Vs. Crookers
10. "T-Shirt" - Shontelle

    I meant to say - The Killers only number 40?! Even Human is outselling it still :( Second and subsequent singles by "album" acts like the killers, keane, scissters, maroon 5 et al are seemingly and forever cursed :(

    I don't really see a huge difference between "T-shirt" and "Breathe Slow", so sadly it doesn't seem that out of place.

    the person who wrote this blog is clearly retarded.
    T-Shirt owned the charts, i don't get how it didn't reach no.1
