Quiet week. (In the chart. Not generally.)
And for no particular reason, let’s pause to ask ourselves how each of these tracks did on the Scottish chart. How different are we, really?
26. A Great Big World featuring Christina Aguilera – “Say Something”
Originally released in March, when it made number 4. Why is it back? Why, because X Factor is back on the air, and “Say Something” is thoroughly suited for use in X Factor. And so X Factor is duly hammering it. It showed up in the midweeks for the previous chart, but vanished by Sunday; this time it shows a bit more staying power.
Scottish chart position: n/a. Yes, Scotland is less likely to buy X Factor backing music. We’re off to a good start, Scotland!
22. Fall Out Boy – “Centuries”
