US Chart Roundup: It's Embarrassing How Much I Dig That Cobra Starship & Sabi Trash Jam

It's a third non-consecutive week at #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart for Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera's "Moves Like Jagger," a time length that now matches the stretch the Adam Levine-led band spent at the top in 2007 with "Makes Me Wonder." Xtina's last run at #1, with "Lady Marmalade" in 2001, lasted five weeks.

The rest of the Top 10 players remain pretty much the same, save for Cobra Starship and Sabi's Steve Mac-produced hit "You Make Me Feel..." hopping up to #7, thus bumping Lil Wayne's Auto Tune trash "How To Love" out of the upper tier of the chart.

I'm seriously hoping to be over "You Make Me Feel..." within a week or so, because it has so become my guilty pleasure jam while driving around. And have you heard those guys perform the song live? They make Britney Spears sound like Kelly Clarkson by comparison.

Elsewhere, Coldplay's second Mylo Xyloto single "Paradise" debuts at #16 (it's predecessor, "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall," reached #14 in June), while Dev's "In The Dark" inches up two positions to #18. Romanian hooker Alexandra Stan's ridiculously addictive "Mr. Saxobeat" is up to #29.

Finally, Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse's "Body And Soul" debuts way down at #87. Billboard points out that Bennett is now the oldest artist to have a single chart on the Hot 100.

Meanwhile, I totally bought Duets II. It's my new folding laundry/chasing the cats around the joint with the Dirt Devil Kone jam.
