Phoebe Bridgers must be ENRAGED about Olivia Rodrigo.

daf

You have me at a disadvantage there - did she write the song?

- - - - -

Also, as an aside, it's getting increasingly difficult to find the actual cover art for some of these singles - as in many cases the physical item doesn't exist!

The one above isn't actually the cover, but the closest appropriate photo I could find cropped into a square.


daf

Ah yes, think you're right - I'll have to add spotify into my 'discogs' and '45cat' searches!

I'll leave my version up there, but here's the proper cover :

No, but it sounds EXACTLY like her, only 20% more pop.

Yeah, sounds like Phoebe Bridgers mixed with Lorde. Good song though, I like it.

Rick Beato cocks an ear to the Spotify Top Ten (the first is from a few months ago)

I just listened to the Top 10 on Spotify...WTF?
and the update :
My Latest Top 10 Spotify Review...Has It Gotten Worse?


(that Bieber song sounds fantastic with Rick's extra guitar!)

Pauline Walnuts

Why is that number one? Is it on an advert, or on a really good TicTok video or something?

or is it just a good song?

daf

Combination of stuff probably - She was fairly high profile being on a couple of TV shows : on the Disney Channel and 'High School Musical: The Musical: The Series' - so a bit like Nick Berry or Robson and Jerome going to number one.

The chart position seems mainly based on millions of Youtube/Spotify streams - with just 16,000 people paying actual cash money for a copy (presumably via downloads?)

crankshaft

She's closer to Britney Spears, really - former Disney TV star opens pop career with an absolutely bulletproof single made entirely of hooks that also completely captures the zeitgeist.

daf

Ah yes - that makes sense.

Bit rude though - dropping the F-bomb and all that! #kidsthesedays

I'd never heard of her before, but she already had a successful single last year with 30 million views on YouTube. Evidently that one was released as a promotional single for Disney's High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: The High School, but it seems more or less like a normal single to me. (Even got a video with her sat at a piano in a lake!) Though it's a nice narrative to say her first official solo single went straight in at #1.

Just a quick correction -

The 16,000 copies was apparently the number downloaded in the US in the first three days. In the UK, it was downloaded 95,000 times (by the time it made number 1).

oh so that Wellerman song is a single now. the internet is so funny.

also weird to see Riton clinging on to the periphery. did some good stuff like 10 years ago!

daf

Sounds vaguely familiar . . .

Was it on a TV show or something? (Detectorists / Worzel Gummidge?)

Just listening to it now...it's just a bargain basement remix of the 90s tune 'Push The Feeling On' by Nightcrawlers. Awful!

This is the Riton I know and used to DJ: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ms1Cwf4BQG4

Ah - I was thinking of the Wellerman 'sea shanty'.

(2)    (NEW)'DON'T PLAY' - ANNE-MARIE / KSI / DIGITAL FARM

Starts out sounding like dated absolute shite, but actually turns out being alright.

Video is dreadful.

Captain Z

New entries at #1 and #2 seems very unusual now. Most of the time the highest new entries are in the 30s.

Hmm . .  I wonder if they can work out the countries the views come from.

If so, it might be that most of those were from outside the UK?
