A quick trip to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 mountain

After a quick look at the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 charts (a new column I introduced to my blog) I had several impressions I needed to share.

I had just listened to Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines for the 1st time, the #1 song for several weeks, since it was basically impossible to avoid, and... I just don't get it. I don't get the song, the video, Pharrell's role in it... Why is it so popular, I have no clue...

On the other hand, the #2 song is definitely my jam right now - Daft Punk's Get Lucky. It's a real summer track and I love it.

Let's see, what other songs did I want to mention... Definitely not Justin's Mirrors (aka Cry Me A River pt.2), I just can't at how he just basically made a copy of his own song... Next.

Pink ft. Nate Ruess - Just Give Me A Reason (#7): at first I wasn't really crazy about it, but I like it a lot now. I like fun. and Nate's voice so that probably influenced me a bit, and despite hearing this song on the radio every single day I'm still not tired of it.

Selegend Gomez and her single Come & Get It (#8) are flawless, and you can read more about it in one of my posts below, I don't wanna repeat myself :)

Ok, I think that's everyone who I wanted to mention right now. Next time I'm doing the UK charts, so we'll see if things are a bit more interesting over there. And one final note, why are 7 out of 10 top 10 tracks collaborations? I'm not really a big fan of collaborations, but I'm obviously in the minority...
