There's No Gettin' Over How Much The New UK #1 Single Sucks

Wow. How is it possible that the UK chart is packed with so much R&B/rap, while the current U.S. Top 10 is more pop-filled than ever? Even poor Lady Gaga's latest, "Alejandro," sits floudering at #28 in Ol' Blighty.

This week, the Brits get a new #1 single in the form of David Guetta's "Gettin' Over You." It was originally bland with just Chris Willis singing it on the French DJ's One Love album, but now a "Deluxe Edition" re-release finds Fergie and mind-numbingly shit uncle/nephew duo LMFAO tacked on. Bottom-of-the-barrel dance garbage.

German broad Lena goes in at #30 with her Eurovision winning "Satellite." That's a far cry from last year's Song Contest winner, Norway's Alexander Ryback, who managed to get "Fairytale" to #10.

Sigh. This chart needs to get Kylie'd up PRONTO.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "Gettin' Over You" - David Guetta/Fergie/LMFAO *new* *1 week*
2. "Nothin' On You" - B.o.B feat. Bruno Mars
3. "Ridin' Solo" - Jason Derulo
4. "Dirtee Disco" - Dizzee Rascal
5. "Candy" - Aggro Santos feat. Kimberly Wyatt
6. "Not Afraid" - Eminem
7. "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart" - Alicia Keys
8. "We Dance On" - N-Dubz feat. Bodyrox
9. "Eenie Meenie" - Sean Kingston and Justin Bieber
10. "Solo" - Iyaz

    No argument on the craptastic LMFAO, but I do like the song. Fergie actually breaks up the tired David/Chris and makes it more palatable. As for Lena, I've had "Satellite" stuck in my head just as much as "Fairytale" was last year. Minus the molesting, of course.

    I imagine that I must hate LMFAO the way Fergie hates a good enzymic peel for her face.
