I genuinely LOL'ed at that!JakeP wrote:Y'alright chuck.
Just like our lack of tats, looks like we have that in common too!JakeP wrote:Oh maybe it is a hotel room. LOL it's still incredibly vain and seems pretentious more than anything. Ahh we are definitely agreed on the tattoo issue. Then again, i'm not a big fan of piercings and have never had any part of my body pierced.
Woah! That's nearly as high as it managed on the Hot 100 (No. 4.) Speaking of No. 6, it looks like that'll be the Hot 100 peak for "New Rules." I obviously would've loved to see it go even higher (and dethrone "God's Plan" ), but No. 6 is still way better than I initially hoped/expected, given that none of her previous singles had ever gone higher than No. 72.JakeP wrote:Feel it still continues to defy the odds as it climbs to #6 in the UK. Ohh wow, i've not checked out the US charts for a while. Last time i had a look New rules was low top 20. Amazing to see another british artist taking America by storm.
Ah, yeah, there's definitely some super-cute footage out there of unexpected animal companionship! So many random-animal-combination snuggle clips...JakeP wrote:I've never really thought about different breeds tbh. LOL those cats will be going round your apartment acting like they own the place. A new would certainly ruffle a few feathers. Although i've seen videos on YouTube over the years that show cats and dogs getting on perfectly fine. <3
Ooh, that brings up an interesting chart factoid that I don't think I've asked before: what's the shortest run for a No. 1 hit here? Have any chart-toppers ever fallen off faster than Tay's five weeks?JakeP wrote:Oh totally. Otherwise Taylor may have ended up possibly top 5 at least, but i think the evidence was in its chart run; 01-04-07-10-15 when i've had songs that have spent 5+ weeks at #1 in my chart even though this is an elite group.
**Nod** For sure - if the melody is strong/catchy enough, I can still get totally hooked on songs that aren't in English at all. I think that line of JT's about saying nothing just sticks out to me more than usual due to the tense climate right now around so many significant social issues, when speaking up feels more crucial than ever.JakeP wrote:LOL sometimes lyrics don't really matter to me, even if they are daft as a dot ie. Justin Bieber's lyrics on his track Friends. Also surely it depends on what the person was going to say. If they were about to put their foot in it and say something that would really embarrass you then saying nothing at all would be the perfect solution. You do make a valid point though. Iirc Example did a song called Say nothing which also didn't really make any sense.
Ha, that's a pretty perfect counter-point, though! Saying nothing is better than talking out your arse.

• I'm diggin' the super-psychedelic blacklightastic vid for your No. 2! I just did a quick Wikipedia check to learn a little more about the artists, and I was surprised to learn they've been putting out albums since '99!
• "Vincent" is GORGEOUS A truly moving tribute to one of the world's greatest artists. I'd never heard the original before, so I definitely appreciate Ellie introducing me to it now! It's also just nice to have anything new from her (Especially since "First Time" didn't do much for me...)
• I was seriously shocked to see something other than "Seeing Blind" get selected as Niall's next single! I like "On The Loose" well enough, but "Seeing Blind" seemed like the beyond-obvious, foregone-conclusion choice!
Yet another chart that's one of the best, Jake!
