REWIND: A Quick Word On Last Week's U.K. Chart Regarding The Saturdays

I didn't get around to sassing the U.K. Top 40 Singles chart last week, but I did want to have a record here of it—and to bring up the Saturdays' fifth single, "Work." It ended up being their lowest-charting to date, peaking at #22 and popzy-doodle-flizz-opping down to #35 last week.

But no big deal. With four Top 10 singles under their collective skirts, these broads have more than proven their worth, and will no doubt push Girls Aloud and Sugababes into the scrap heap upon the arrival of their second album later this year.

I'd say that's a shame for GA and the 'babes, but, let's face it—we love it when used-up hags scream (see: Madonna).

Last week's U.K. Top 10:

1. "Evacuate The Dancefloor" - Cascada *2 weeks*
2. "Bulletproof" - La Roux
3. "Man In The Mirror" - Michael Jackson
4. "Paparazzi" - Lady Gaga
5. "When Love Takes Over" - David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland
6. "Diamond Rings" - Chipmunk feat. Emeli Sande *new*
7. "Boom Boom Pow" - The Black Eyed Peas
8. "Knock You Down" - Keri Hilson feat. Kanye West & Ne-Yo
9. "Release Me" - Agnes
10. "I Gotta Feeling" - The Black Eyed Peas

    i'm sad that it didn't quite make top 20, but they have been playing massive concerts all summer to a big selling album so it still seemed like it was everywhere. And of course several singles were kept out the top 20 by the MJ factor, where they probably would have reigned for a few weeks...
