The Top 40 Irreverent Review

40. Let It Go - Idina Menzel

When I sat through Frozen, largely bored, at the cinema (and thankfully fell into a sleep halfway, little did I know that Iíd be subjected to this screeching plodding Disney-by-numbers well into the year after next, week after interminable week. Want to know whatís wrong with the 2015 singles chart? I suggest parents now use this record as a means of torture to get their children to behave, much like the Bogeyman.

39. Rather Be - Clean Bandit

This is a million-selling record and itís been on the chart for a year. Enough is bloody enough, itís not that good! Itís good, but itís not brilliant as in it deserves to share itís insanely wonderful charms for 12 months. I got bored with it a long time ago. Over 6 months ago.

38. Prayer In C - Lilly Wood

OMG hereís another that wonít go away, it was mildly catchy at first in a repetitive fashion, then her whining and unforgiving lyrics just got on my nerves. After half a year of it I can absolutely see why she was dumped, OMG she goes on!

37. Changing - Sigma ft Paloma Faith

At last a record that hasnít outstayed itís welcome, a genuine classic, still exciting, a great vocal, a great song, a great production, still in my charts and still not tired of hearing it.

36. Blame - Calvin Harris ft John Newman

John Newman is great, this typically Calvin Harris-sounding production is not bad, but enoughís enough, time to go away for a while now. I do, in fact, not Blame it on John Newman (as he suggests), I blame people who should move onto something newer and fresher.

35. Sing - Ed Sheeran

I normally dislike Edís records before Iíve even heard them. This is his best record, Pharrell performing a miracle and helping in getting me to love one of his records, as opposed to the more normal grow to not dislike them. That said, the OTT Sheeran domination of the singles chart, and album sales, leaves me wondering who the hell who likes Ed has not already bought this!? Is Spotify to blame and his legion of fans who just canít get sick of the album?

34. 7/11 - Beyonce

Sheís got more edgy musically lately (a good thing), but this one didnít grab me much till I saw the video in a club in Gran Canaria. It sounds great loud in a club, pumping and thumping after a couple of bacardi and cokes. It sounds less good on the radio.

33. All Of Me - John Legend

Aaaaaargh!! Hate. hate. Hate!!!! Insipid, moronic, twee, it really makes you wish he was underwater and breathing fire, cos the trite meaningless lyrics keep on appealing to women whoís judgement has been clouded with loved-up floating clouds of bliss caring not a jot about the rest of us who arenít. John, take that double-tracked vocal and go an simper out of the bloody top 40 so I never have to hear it again in my life. A million people bought this. Groooaaannnn!

TBC when Ive regained my sanity....

No wonder Jameela is leaving, I really don't blame her.

It's nice to see I'm not the only one who has had enough of Prayer In C!

Disagree about Ed as for me, Thinking Out Loud is now his best record.

The songs themselves are pretty good imo, but the fact that all the songs listed so far, except for 7/11 are SOOOOOO OLD is quite sad. sad.gif

all fair points, to be honest the chart improves towards the top end and I can be lovely and nice with about half of them if I get round to reviewing laugh.gif . I did warn that if the BBC didn't change the format it would drive Jameela insane though, it's like water-torture playing the same records week after week after week. Poor gal's had enough! ohmy.gif I give Clara 12 months before she starts thinking about lunch on air to break the tedium... laugh.gif

Yes something like this is better placed in personal charts I think than in the chart forum.
