Another week, another top two swap. We’re pretty confident that until someone else releases an amazing new album (or Greatest Hits collection) Pink and No Doubt will keep fighting over that number one spot, although Agnes did come rather close this week.
It’s rather exceptional for ‘old’ records to make our album chart, but with the Girls Aloud reunion being on its way, we’re sure you can understand that we played their discography quite a bit…
Big clean-up this week thanks to the Girls, but we’re sure some of these will make a return when our Aloud obsession wears out… well, if, really..

Poor Steps. This time last week we were convinced they’d storm in straight at number one with their new single, but that was before we’d heard it and, more importantly, before we knew that by now we’d be completely obsessed with the new one from Girls Aloud.
In other top 5 news, Pink’s Try definitely benefited from its video, although we’re still not impressed that it happened in the first place we’re enjoying Stooshe’s Waterfalls a surprising lot, and the X Factor is showing its first impact on our charts.
Aside from Ella with her Take That cover Leona Lewis and Taylor Swift also benefited from their performances on this weekend’s X Factor. New singles from Kelly Clarkson and Alexandra Stan also make an entry, as does Geri’s surprisingly pleasant version of Wannabe.
There’s slowly coming an end to Pink’s domination of our song chart, although we’re sure some of these will be making a return sooner or later. As always, these songs may have left our list, but they’ll be hanging around on our iTunes for a lot longer!
We swear we’re not doing it on purpose, but this week once again sees Pink and No Doubt switching places at the top of our Album Chart, which is kinda fitting since we’re really a lot into both of them, and we’d have trouble picking a favourite between the two. However, this week No Doubt got a few more plays, so back to number 1 it is!
Lower down Leona’s and Loreen’s new albums both enter our top 5, and we’ve decided to to bundle the zillion of Lana demos as an ‘album’, cause we’re playing them way too much not to be mentioned in here.
Initially we were convinced the Noisettes album would become one of our year favourites, but it kinda got lost in past month’s release mayhem, as did Mika. As for Whigfield.. the album’s pleasant enough, but I doubt by this time next year we’ll even remember it got released.

It happened with Russian Roulette, it happened with We Found Love, and over the past two weeks it happened once again: a Rihanna lead single initially left us underwhelmed, only to properly hit us a few days later. Last week we weren’t even sure Diamonds would hang around for another week, but this week it’s shot straight to number one. Well done, Riri.
We haven’t made it a secret that we weren’t the biggest fans of the Waterfalls cover idea, and we still think Stooshe’s version is no patch on the original, but we can’t deny that we listened to it a few times, so it would be a lie to leave it off our list.
Of course all these new songs come at a price, so 14 older songs bit the dust:
We sorry, nekci.
It’s another good week for Pink as she reclaims the number one spot on our Album Chart while also entering the top 3 with her, not entirely official, iTunes Live EP . This all happened even before her Try video got released, so yes, we are quite fond of her indeed.
Also entering the chart this week is forgotten ’90s star And there go the two oldest albums that were still in. No huge surprise there, but 4/5 months on we’re actually still playing them an awful lot.
