David Guetta has another number one
David Guetta gets his first number one single for wight years. Blackpink top the albums chart for the first time.

David Guertta and Bebe Rexha top the singles chart. Blackpink get their first number one album.

After being narrowly beaten by Lewis Capaldi last week, David Guetta and Bebe Rexha’s I’m Good (Blue) climbs one palace to top the chart this week. Guetta’s seventh number one single comes thirteen years after his first (When Love Takes Over) and seven years after he last topped the chart with Lovers On The Sun. For Albanian-American Bebe Rexha it is a first number one, seven years after her UK chart debut with Take Me Home.

Lewis Capaldi’s first number one, Someone You Loved, spent a full seven weeks at the chart summit. By contrast, his second, Before You Go, spent just seven days at the top before it went. The same fate has now befallen Forget Me which slips to number two. The previous number one, Eliza Rose and Interplanetary Criminal’s BOTA (Baddest Of Them All) falls one place to number three.

Nicki Minaj’s characteristically dreadful Super Freaky Girl is at number five, one place ahead of OneRepublic’s I Ain’t Worried.

South Korean girlband Blackpink released a new album of horrors last Friday (16 September). Pink Venom had already been released as a single and reached number 22 last month. This week it returns at number 38. It is joined by Shut Down, a new entry at number 24.

The best new entry of the week comes from one Montell Fish. Information about him seems to be rather hard to come by although there are several references to his Christianity. He enters at number 27 with Hotel.

Among other charting hotels are Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel, The Eagles’ Hotel California and Chris Isaak’s Blue Hotel. Extending the scope wider, popular culture’s most infamous hotelier (even if it was actually a motel) Norman Bates was the subject of a song by Landscape in 1981. The Bates Motel was, of course, the scene of most of the action in Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1960 film Psycho. Psycho is also the title of a new entry for Anne-Marie and Aitch at number sixteen. Sadly, it is closer to the quality of Aitch’s previous releases than those of Anne-Marie.

Other singles with a link to Alfred Hitchcock include U2’s Vertigo and Que Sera Sera (Whatever Will Be Will Be) which featured in the master’s The Man Who Knew Too Much in which Doris Day played James Stewart’s wife and sang that iconic song. Both those songs reached number one, albeit nearly 50 years apart.

Central Cee’s latest rubbish, LA Freakers Lifestyle, enters at number forty. He has now managed thirteen extraordinarily low-quality top forty hits.

As mentioned above, Blackpink inflicted a new album on the British public last week. They haave yet to set the singles chart alight but their album,

Ever since I started these commentaries in 2008 I have made no attempt to be impartial when discussing the quality of music in the charts. I have exercised the freedom to shower praise on some artists while slagging off Drake at every opportunity. In 2008, there was every possibility that I would never get the chance to write about a new Suede album, despite Brett Anderson’s promise at the end of their “farewell gig” at the London Astoria that there would be another album one day.

The prospect of a new Suede album got a massive boost in 2010 when the band re-formed to perform in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust at the Albert Hall. The success of that gig (and the further gigs that happened as a result) led to the release of Bloodsports in 2013. That was followed by Night Thoughts in 2016 and The Blue Hour in 2018. Nowm after a wait of four years, we finally have Suede’s ninth studio album Autofiction. It hardly needs to be said that it is brilliant.

Suede have reached the top ten with each of the studio albums released since they reformed. That trend continues with Autofiction which enters at number two, their highest chart position since Head Music got to number one in 1999.

Suede find themselves sandwiched between two artists from the Far East as the top three is completed by Japanese-born singer Rina Sawayama. Her first studio album only got as far as number 80 but Hold The Girl is at number three.

As a born pedant, I avoid calling an album self-titled as the term could simply mean that the artist chose the title themselves. If the album title is the same as the artist’s name, I prefer the term eponymous. However, I cannot avoid describing Marcus Mumford’s first solo album as Self-Titled because that is what it is called. From what little I’ve heard, it sounds like a Mumford & Sons album without the sons. It enters at number four.

Ask somebody to name three Pink Floyd albums and the most likely answers (excluding those who can’t answer the question) are probab;y Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall. Their 1977 album Animals Between Wish You Were Here and The Wall) tends to be rather neglected. This is a pity as it is a very good album. Its chart performance was pretty good for a rock album. It entered at number two, stayed there for three weeks and spent a total of eleven weeks in the top ten but is remembered as much for its iconic sleeve depicting an inflatable pig above Battersea Power Station than for its actual music. The reissue is at number five.

Robbie Williams’ XXV crashes to number eighteen after a week at number one.

We are nearing the end of a month in which two Lissies have featured prominently in the news. A third, Elisabeth Maurus, performing as simply Lissie is at number thirty with her fifth album Carving Canyons.
