Welcome to the annual Weird Chart. Once upon a time, the two charts after Christmas were basically a write-off because the shops were closed for so long.

Next week’s chart will be a bit closer to normal, as Pitbull tries to sneak himself a number one.
In the meantime, we have a chart in which the top 75 is basically shoved into a blender and rearranged in a random order. This is because, even though there’s no new material available, there are plenty of people who got gift cards or MP3 players for Christmas, and who want to fill them up.
