Pink Has #1 Single, Kid Cudi #1 Album at iTunes Music Store

  |   Comments

For reasons defying explanation, Pink's "Just Give Me A Reason" is the #1 song at the #1 music retailer in the US this week followed by yet another song from Macklemore and Lewis. Would you stop listening to this nonsense if I told you God kills a puppy every time you download one of these songs? I know, I've become a broken record. There was a time I'd worry about being old and out of touch using that reference but vinyl is back even as we talk about digital downloads. Selena Gomez is also in the Top 10 and this might be the first time her name has been mentioned and not in reference to a certain boy with a quarantined monkey (you really can't make this shit up).

Kid Cudi and Fall Out Boy are tops on the albums chart and I confess I'm surprised to see Paramore coming in as low as they did at #10. They did an in-store appearance at the Greatest Record Store On Earth, Grimey's, in Nashville for Record Store Day this past weekend. I don't know if their number is yet up, but I expected to see them further up the charts. Daft Punk's Random Access Memory won't be available for another 3+ weeks and they're already in the Top 10 on pre-orders alone. Their first single is also in the Top 10.
