LOL.

I owe this man some beers from our past run-in. Even more so now.

I don't understand it does that mean that for the last 38 years there's always been an English band in the chart? Not sure I believe that.

Probably Dark Side of the Moon dropped to position 101

It does reflect somewhat on the fact that the English "pap" scene for the last year or so has revolved almost totally around the likes of Papstars and Hear'Soy, both of which are utter tripe. I'm not surprised that the US Music markets have voted with their ears so to speak, especially when you look at some of the quite distinctive bands that are coming out of the States which are popular with the US "Yoof" culture...

Nevertheless it's true. Apparently americans like copies of their own music more than they like the real thing. :)

In May 1965 and again in May 1985, there were eight UK records in the top 10.

In 65 I can see. In 85? :hmm:

To be fair, who cares what's in the top 50 anyway? There's so rarely a half decent song in there.

Got this through to the news account, decided not to post it as news but I thought it was worth posting still:

After reading Snapcase's frothing on how the dearth of UK artists in the Billboard charts equalled the death of British music, I thought I'd check it out for myself. By my reckoning, the Billboard Top 50 is 90% American, 4% Nickelback, 4% Enrique Iglesias and 2% Kylie. Nasty.

This means, of course, that it's the end of music for the rest of the world too. In fact, in a few years time there will be no US artists in the Billboard charts either, just a random humming noise. The truth of the matter is that the US presence in the UK charts is also in decline at the moment. The recent trend is for regionalisation in music- hence the comparative lack of foreigners. Still, it's spring so it's time to proclaim the death of British music. As we do every year, in fact.
