Going straight in at No.1, in the UK Top 100 Music Chart w/e November 22nd 2014, is Gareth Malone’s All Star Choir with a cover version of the dance track, Wake Me Up When It’s All Over… how apt, since this 7-hour dullfest perpetuates year after year.
The only elements I was looking forward to was the Tom and Jerry cartoon – and that was just a plug for a load of BBC shows, then there was a “Doctor Who sketch”, which was just a clip of the Christmas episode, with the over-exposed Nick Frost, and finally, the return of S Club 7, who haven’t really been in hiding for 14 years, but have been doing reunion tours for a while. I’m hoping they’re coming to Manchester. Anyhoo, this new song from smug-faced Gareth Malone is dreadful. Feel free to donate without buying the song!
And then question why Terry Wogan gets paid £1400/hour to host the show, when everyone else does it for free. Then again, those presenting, who are also working for the BBC aren’t exactly on minimum wage, are they?
As such, Cheryl Vib-Ribbon, or whatever she’s calling herself, drops to No.4 with I Don’t Care. Ooh, that’s ripe for me saying I don’t care about the track either. It’s not bad in terms of the music, but then gets lazy when lyrics include the fact she has “shit to do” and later uses the f-words. I’m sure Mother Tweedy is very proud of her. As for the music-buying public, they’ve made this her 5th No.1, seemingly breaking the record for the most No.1 singles held by a British female artist.
The only other new entries in the Top 10 are The Veronicas at No.8 with You Ruin Me, and No.9 sees Sam Smith enter with Like I Can.
And at No.74 is One Direction with Fool’s Gold… REALLY?!?!!
And here’s S Club 7‘s reunion on Children In Need, singing their medley of hits:
