I would say it was fun while it lasted -- Macklemore and Ryan Lewis being tossed out of the #1 slot - but it was Pink who took the crown so it really wasn't worth a damn. They're the 1 and 2 songs this week but "Thrift Shop" from The Heist is back on top. I don't know why. On the day we mourn the passing of critic and curmudgeon Roger Ebert, I can only wonder what wonderfully witty, acerbic condemnations he would have for this twaddle. Cheers, Rog.
Moving right along, what we have in the albums department is actually not any better. I should go ahead and mention our frequent contributor Jordan Richardson thinks very highly of Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience and while he and I don't always hear things the same way, I respect the way he hears things and shares it. I'm still taking a pass on this record but he's given it his support.
The Grammy-Winning Babel from Mumford & Sons is #10, continuing to sell well more than a year following its release. With that, amigos, I have nothing else to say. Here are the Top 10 Songs and Albums at iTunes for the week ending April 1. Please try and do better the next time, would you ever?
