UK Top 100 Music chart summary & my views w/e January 11th 2014

mu110114Going straight in at No.1 in the UK Top 100 Music Chart for w/e January 11th 2014 is Pitbull Feat. Ke$ha with Timber, a track which is one of the most predictable dance tracks I’ve ever heard. The ‘country’ aspect reminds me of the appalling “Cotton-Eyed Joe”, too. Oh dear.

As such, Pharrell drops to No.2 with Happy and it’s a much more deserving top-slot track than most in recent weeks.

There’s nothing else to get excited about in the charts as things are still slow to get going this early into the New Year.
