It isn't 'judged'. It is based on the number of times the single is bought, I can't see that it can be made any fairer than that. The problem lies with the people who buy the singles.(Original post by AzureMews)
Haven't heard of half of them.
I think the way the charts are judged needs to be changed.. Maybe incorporate Spotify.
How would you suggest incorporating Spotify? It would then be unfair to people who prefer other streaming services, there would have to be measures in place to prevent it from counting the same person listening to one song on repeat, all day. With it being a free service, people could create multiple accounts and listen to the same song on each to boost the play count. People could get their friends to listen to the song. It won't happen.

I normally generally like chart music, but this year it's been so samey and boring and generic, even for me . Thank goodness for last.fm, eh?
This week's chart songs I'm really not feeling that much. I mean, a lot are just OK, a bit meh, but nothing I really love there. I'd say though, my fave song on the top 40 most definitely has to be Pack Up by Eliza Doolittle, I'm really loving her at the moment

Who the **** is Bruno Mars!?
Gotta love a bit of Yolanda Be Cool though. That, Katy Perry, The Saturdays and Usher are the only acceptable ones in the top 40. Oh yeh and B.o.B. + Hayley Williams

I like Yolanda Be Cool, it is stupid but such a funny,catchy tune. The Saturdays are what I call hot, I might just goin ring up Frankie now. B.O.B and Hayley williams are great as well, Hayley looks gorgeous in that vid. Usher's new track is dreadful with that hideous Pitbull, I like OMG though!
OMG to some of the reactions to my thread as well. Lol
