Screw Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift's Spooky 'You're Not Sorry' Remix Beats 'The Climb' Any Day

Pint-sized teen Miley Cyrus scores her third Top 10 single this week as "The Climb," from the Hannah Montana: The Movie soundtrack, debuts at #6. This bests the peak chart positions of both "See You Again" (#10) and last summer's "7 Things" (#9).

All this would be great news if, like most safe soundtrack ballads, "The Climb" didn't make me want to put a flare gun up to my forehead and fire off to the dirt nap. Sorry, Miley, but your dirge can suck it.

It's a second week stuck at #3 for Lady GaGa's "Poker Face." Meanwhile, her new U.S. single "LoveGame" debuts at #96, and her album The Fame is the week's "Greatest Gainer," moving up to a new high of #4.

Alright, on to the classy trash. Country/pop broad Taylor Swift appeared on CBS crime program CSI: Las Vegas last week (pictured right), playing a teen who's murdered outside the motel her parents run. A haunting remix of her previous #11-charting single "You're Not Sorry" was played during the episode, prompting the track to re-enter the Hot 100 at #67 this week. Expect it to jump higher next week, as the official "CSI Remix" of "You're Not Sorry" is now available on iTunes (clip below).

And that brings us to rag tag uncle and newphew duo (for real!) of RedFoo and Sky Blu, better known as LMFAO. Their sure-to-be novelty electro club hit, "I'm In Miami Bitch"—or, in the somewhat cleaned-up version that debuts on the chart this week, "I'm In Miami Trick"—makes its Hot 100 appearance at #73.

Here's the vid for "I'm In Miami Bitch," and a clip of Taylor Swift's "You're Not Sorry" (The CSI Remix)":

Finally, on the Top 200 Albums chart, U2 are the ones to finally knock Taylor Swift's Fearless off the top after 11 nonconsecutive weeks. No Line On The Horizon debuts at #1, having sold 484,000 copies. But Kelly Clarkson will surely make mashed potatoes out of those bums this time next week.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Right Round" - Flo Rida feat. Ke$ha *4 weeks*
2. "Dead And Gone" - T.I. feat. Justin Timberlake
3. "Poker Face" - Lady GaGa
4. "Kiss Me Thru The Phone" - Souljah Boy Tell 'Em feat. Sammie
5. "Gives You Hell" - The All-American Rejects
6. "The Climb" - Miley Cyrus *new*
7. "Just Dance" - Lady GaGa feat. Colby O'Donis
8. "Heartless" - Kanye West
9. "My Life Would Suck Without You" - Kelly Clarkson
10. "Blame It" - Jamie Foxx feat. T-Pain

    It is SOOOOO weird to hear Taylor's country fluff voice set against a wash of Massive Attack-esque music!!

    Miley had me for about 2 minutes with "See You Again", and I've almost even forgotten about that one.
