UK Top 100 Music chart summary & my views: w/e November 9th 2013

MU091113Going straight in the UK Top 100 Music chart at No.1 is Eminem feat. Rihanna with The Monster and it may sound like a rather odd combination, and… yes, it is. I'm not impressed with the outcome .

As such, Lorde drops to No.2 with Royals and it’s a heavily-produced song for this 16-year-old singer from New Zealed and… it’s okay, but No.1? Really? Someone’s hype machine has been working overtime.

The rest of the Top 10 isn’t much to shout about with a lacklustre Fatboy Slim track at No.3, where Riva Starr & Beardyman join him for Eat Sleep Rave Repeat, which is rambling nonsense set to a drumbeat .

Then there’s One Direction, Tinie Tempah and The Wanted – No thanks to any of them.

A better bet is at No.12: Foxes with Youth, and you can see that video here:

Meanwhile, there are new entries in the Top 40 for:

  • 3 Fatboy Slim & Riva Starr feat. Beardyman – Eat Sleep Rave Repeat
  • 4 One Direction – Story Of My Life
  • 6 Tinie Tempah feat. John Martin – Children Of The Sun

  • 68 Avril Lavigne – Rock N Roll
