5. Duran Duran – ‘(Reach Up For The) Sunrise’
6. Deep Dish – ‘Flashdance’
7. Lucie Silvas – ‘What You’re Made Of’
8. Angel City – ‘Do You Know (I Go Crazy)’
9. Christina Milian – ‘Whatever You Want’
10. Ronan Keating – ‘I Hope You Dance’

how many of the above songs do you suppose were written by the
performers? one or two maybe?
3 and 6 are covers and 2 has a stevie winwood sample all over it.
i havent heard it but i'me guessing that #9 isnt the mighty quo song?
far too old to worry about the singles chart.
Jim Dandy to the rescue.

Mainstream pop music has always been aimed at younger people, and serves it's purpose well. the whole authenticity of certain bands has been argued to death on this board so I don't want to bring it up again, but pop music can be colourful, fun and sometimes brilliant (Some Girls by Rachel Stevens was ace)

I haven't heard all the songs in this weeks top ten, the ones I have are awful but maybe it's just been a bad week for singles, I'm sure that happened even in the 60s.

This news from August reported a rise in singles sales. There was a piece on C4 news about it with young teenage girls saying they would buy both a paid-for download AND a CD single of something if they really liked the song. The new 2 track £1.99 CD single was being hailed as a winner.
