UK Top 100 Music chart summary & my views w/e March 8th 2014

mu080314Going back up to No.1, in the UK Top 100 Music Chart w/e March 8th 2014, is Pharrell with Happy, one of the best songs of the year, without a doubt.

So glad it caused last week’s No.1 to drop to No.2, Sam Smith with Money On My Mind, and god knows that got to No.1. It’s bland dance music at best!

There are three other new entries in the top 10 – Tiësto with Red Lights at No.6, Foxes at No.7 with Let Go For Tonight and No.10’s Paloma Faith with Can’t Rely On You.

Meanwhile, following on from the #SingItKitty advert for Three, Starship are back in the charts with We Built This City at No.26.

And here’s that Paloma Faith track which I’ve really enjoyed recently:
