Well, There's Always the Second Frankmusik Single To Look Forward To, Right?

Vincent Frank, aka Frankmusik—aka(#2) the most wanked-over artist this year by music bloggers—probably fell backwards over his Korg, knocked it into the drapes, sent the curtain rod flying off it's hinges and crashed through the glass after seeing the U.K. chart positions today.

The 23-year-old's major label debut single "Better Off As Two" came in at...suspenseful drumroll...a less-than-astounding #26. Goodness! Will Frankmusik go the way of Lorraine, Same Difference, and all others who got flushed into obscurity's sess pool following a lone, poorly-charting first single?

Ah, Britain, thou art a cruel lady. However, faring much better in the electronic music department is La Roux, who continue to claw their way toward the top with "In For The Kill" (this week to #2).

Oh, well. Cheer up, Frankmusik fans...you'll always have this picture of his butt to remember.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "I'm Not Alone" - Calvin Harris *2 weeks*
2. "In For The Kill'" - La Roux
3. "Poker Face" - Lady GaGa
4. "Jai Ho'" - Ar Rahman feat. Pussycat Dolls
