Chart Chat UK: November 29, 2009

The chart is very, very boring this week. Unless you're the accountant for Children in Need. Peter Kay flies up 17 places to claim the number 1 spot with the official CIN single, pushing the X Factor Finalists to 2. Lady Gaga hits the top 5 with 'Bad Romance,' and Rihanna leaps in with her new single 'Russian Roulette.' With a performance tonight on the X-Factor, this will likely be a top 3 smash this time next week. At 9 is Britain's new every-woman hero, Susan Boyle, with 'Wild Horses.' Her album version of 'I Dreamed A Dream' also hits the top 40 at 37. Yes, that's how boring this week is - we are talking about the number 37 entry. The only other newcomer to the top 20 is Mariah Carey's snooze-fest, 'I Want To Know What Love Is' at 19.

The UK Top 10:
1 - The Official Children In Need Medley: Peter Kay
2 - You Are Not Alone: X Factor Finalists
3 - Watcha Say: Jason Derulo
4 - Meet Me Halfway: Black Eyed Peas
5 - Bad Romance: Lady Gaga
6 - Russian Roulette: Rihanna
7 - Tik Tok: Kesha
8 - Fight For This Love: Cheryl Cole
9 - Wild Horses: Susan Boyle
10- Happy: Leona Lewis

Rogue Traders remind us 'Love Is A War'

Here is a video from Rogue Traders. In it, half naked people of varying degrees of sexiness throw food at each other. It is quite fun.

The song is ok, but if you watch on mute and instead play the new Lady Gaga album it's really pretty enjoyable.
