What's going on in the UK charts??

That's what I'd like to know! I'm looking at the top 100 and it doesn't make much sense. Let's start with the top 10.

No.1 is some song I have no desire to even listen to, I Love It by Icona Pop (2 girls obviously). The name of the duo is irritating and they also look irritating so I'm just gonna skip them.
No.2 is the inevitable Blurred Lines, which I'm not gonna write about again.
No.3 is Bang Bang by will.i.am, which for some reason jumped from no.42 last week (?!). It doesn't even feature some mega star like Britney or Justin Bieber (ugh), so I don't get it how it got so high...
No.4 is another mystery to me... Walks Like Rihanna by The Wanted. Cringeworthy title, cringeworthy lyrics (She can't sing, she can't dance, but who cares, she walks like Rihanna.). No, thank you.
Finally an amazing song - no.6 is The Passenger with Let Her Go, which is totally my jam rn!

Even though the song came out like a year ago, it's now in the UK charts...
No.8 is another favorite of mine that I already wrote about - Daft Punk and Get Lucky, and no.10 is Olly Murs with Dear Darlin', one of the best songs of his latest album (Right Place Right Time).

Some other bizarre appearances are Jason Mraz with I'm Yours at no.33 (this is the song's 163rd week in the charts, so you do the math how many years ago it was released) and Evanescence with Bring Me To Life (which was released 10 years ago).

Are people in the UK running out of good songs? I'll get back to you on this issue!
