The Saturdays Are On A Somewhat Boring Roll

It's a shame that, for all their UK Top 10 hits (seven total now), The Saturdays have yet to hit #1. Granted, most of the dross on Wordshaker was utterly derivative. But when all is said and done, folks will probably come to find they have quite a tidy greatest hits collection when the singles are played consecutively.

And so this week the ho pack's eighth single "Missing You"—the first release off the Headlines! mini album—pops into the Brit chart at #3. The point of Headlines!, which contains previously-released singles "Ego" and "Forever Is Over" plus a remix of Wordshaker track "One Shot, is a mystery. Still, "Karma" is kind of nice for one or two listens before you eventually end up deleting the entire thing off your iTunes.

Funny how the Sats have yet to release anything as exciting as their first two single "If This Is Love" and "Up," the former of which came out two years ago now. At this point, that seems like a lifetime.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "Club Can't Handle Me" - Flo Rida feat. David Guetta - Ne-Yo *1 week*
2. "Love The Way You Lie" - Eminem feat. Rihanna
3. "Missing You" - The Saturdays *new*
4. "We No Speak Americano" - Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP
5. "Beautiful Monster" - Ne-Yo
6. "Billionaire" - Travie McCoy feat. Bruno Mars
7. "Airplanes" - B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams
8. "All Time Low" - The Wanted
9. "Pack Up" - Eliza Doolittle
10. "In My System" - Tinchy Stryder *new*

    Well ... Bananarama never had a UK number one but they were far superior to the durge that is The Saturdays , who frankly need to give their producers amd PR a kick up the bum

    I do like the remix of "Missing You", but it would have been a sad state if this was the single that got them to #1.

    Ooo good point Anonymous. I don't think Missing you deserved to be number one so no great loss, but tracks like Up and potentially great single Higher should have been (but won't be for the latter :/)
