Who Had The Better 'Number 1'?

U.K. grime stud Tinchy Stryder hits the top of the British chart this week with "Number 1." Catchy jam, that one, no doubt owing to the "featuring" of N-Dubz.

But this of course makes me think of Goldfrapp's 2005 single "Number 1," which, incidentally, only reached #9. Even classier, there's the #6-charting "Number One" which spun off from kiddie show Tweenies in 2000.

Golly, I'm not sure which of these treasures is the best? Right now I'm thinking the Tweenies' packs a bit more of an emotional wallop.

Over on the album chart, Depeche Mode's Sounds Of The Universe debuts at #2. That's not Number 1.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "Number 1" - Tinchy Stryder feat. N-Dubz *1 week*
2. "In For The Kill'" - La Roux
3. "I'm Not Alone" - Calvin Harris
4. "Poker Face" - Lady GaGa
5. "We Made You" - Eminem
6. "Jai Ho'" - Ar Rahman feat. Pussycat Dolls
7. "Love Sex Magic" - Ciara feat. Justin Timberlake
8. "Halo" - Beyonce
9. "Not Fair'" - Lily Allen
10. "Don't Upset The Rhythm (Go Baby Go)" - The Noisettes

    Hopefully Depeche Mode will select a different producer for their next release.

    Starlight "Numero Uno", and
    E.Y.C. "Number One".

    Tinchy's song was as bad as I thought it would be...and the video was Hype Williams circa 1999...so he gats a "no" vote.

    The Tweenies song sounded suspiciously like the S Club 7 theme. Who jacked who?

    This can't truly have success, I suppose so.
