US Chart Roundup: Ellie Goulding, The Neighbourhood, Zendaya & My Tumblr

Happy New Chart Year, pop kiddies, and welcome to another round of Songs I Like One Year Usually Don't Become Hits Until The Next Year. This time around it's Ellie Goulding's "Burn" and The Neighbourhood's "Sweather Weather" slowly but surely making their way up the Billboard Hot 100, this week at #13 and #16, respectively.

Speaking of sweater weather, how about that Winter Storm Hercules, eh? Here's a picture of me dancing on a park bench in the snow last night.

I know — just like Fred Astaire, right?

Elsewhere on the chart, Bastille's "Pompeii" — a song that first made a splash in the UK last March — holds at #21, while Zendaya's "Replay" squeaks into the Top 40 at #40. Did I ever tell you about that time I interviewed Zendaya? Did I ever tell you about my Tumblr? No? You can see the pic of Zendaya and I on my Tumblr, and you should then just follow me there, because why not?

1. "The Monster" - Eminem feat. Rihanna *4 weeks*
2. "Timber" - Pitbull feat. Ke$ha
3. "Counting Stars" - OneRepublic
