UK Chart Roundup: Alexandra Burke's Auto-Tuned Thong Is A Drag

The UK chart continues its trend of being an utter snooze for another week as "Somebody That I Used To Know" by Gotye and Kimbra racks up a fifth stint at #1. That's not to say that the song itself is a bore — quite the contrary, I love that offbeat breakup jam! It's just that all the subsequent positions need a jolt of something new.

And sorry, Alexandra Burke's semi-shit "Elephant," which lumbers in at #3, ain't that jolt. Broad, there's an elephant standing in the room, and it's the fact that this trash sounds like a Rihanna knockoff.


The UK Top 10:

1. "Somebody That I Used To Know" - Gotye feat. Kimbra *5 weeks*
2. "Starships" - Nicki Minaj
3. "Elephant" - Alexandra Burke *new*
4. "Next To Me" - Emeli Sande
5. "Wild Ones" - Flo Rida feat. Sia
6. "Titanium" - David Guetta feat. Sia
7. "Hot Right Now" - DJ Fresh feat. Rita Ora
8. "Turn Me On" - David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj
9. "Love Me" - Stooshe feat. Travie McCoy
10. "Turn Me On" - David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj
