Years & Years go straight in at No.1, in the UK Top 100 Music Chart w/e March 14th 2015, with King, and it’s all a bit ‘Olly Murs meets dance music’.
As such, Ellie Goulding drops to No.2 with Love Me Like You Do, taken from the recent big cinema release, Fifty Shades of Grey, and it’s a drippy power ballad without any real power.
There’s just one other new entry in the Top 10: a No.7 for Marlon Roudette with When The Beat Drops Out.
And so much for Madonna‘s single, Living for Love. In at No.26 last week, and down to No.53 this week.
Oh, and at No.43 in the album charts, Justin Fletcher with Just Party… trashing songs like Starman and Ghostbusters. If you buy your children that album, you know they’ll put you in the worst retirement home they can find when they time comes…
