Ellie Goulding Off To A Good Chart Start, While Sugababes Nab Another Hit

Banging out today's UK chart post super-quick while on a flight layover at the Cincinnati airport. So hoo-ray for Brit Award favorite Ellie Goulding and her #4 debut with "Starry Eyed." Congrats also to Sugababes for snagging their third Top 10 hit in a row with the rather ho-hum "Wear My Kiss" (#7). Maybe there's some life in the 'babes brand yet?

It would have been nice to see Alphabeat debut higher than #29 with "Hole In My Heart," but what can you do? At least they have that classy opening slot on the UK leg of Lady Gaga's Monster Ball tour. "Hole In My Heart" follows the band's #20 entry last year for "The Spell."

Anyway, Ellie and Alphabeat:

I really gotta get that effing Alphabeat album at this point already. Anyway, up, up and away...

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "In My Head" - Jason Derulo *new* *1 week*
2. "You Got The Dirtee Love" - Florence And The Machine/Dizzee Rascal
3. "Rude Boy" - Rihanna
4. "Starry Eyed" - Ellie Goulding *new*
5. "Empire State Of Mind (Part II)" - Alicia Keys
6. "If We Ever Meet Again" - Timbaland feat. Katy Perry
7. "Wear My kiss" - Sugababes *new*
8. "Fireflies" - Owl City
9. "Everybody Hurts" - Helping Haiti
10. "One Shot" - JLS

    and what a drop for helping haiti! I guess people felt they helped enough with buying that single, and just gave via other methods.

    There is still a tiny part of me that's glad the Sugababes are still having hits, but the lack of a bigger hit for Alphabeat leaves a hole in my heart :(

    I'm happy for the Sugababes -- even Version 4 deserves success. Three top 10 singles off this album is great -- and performing far better than the singles run of both Catfights and Change.

    Paul, ditto for Alphabeat. That song was tailor made for a #14 debut!

    Robb, I'd wager a guess that if Sweet 7 were already out, though, the individual singles wouldn't be charting as high. Clever tactic, though.
