The caption says the song is #1? This video is cute. I guess I don't listen to pop radio enough.

ARGHHH I'm not sure how much this has infiltrated the US but it was No1 here in the UK, basically it came from THE most annoying Cell Phone ringtone ever invented and it's popularity simply spiralled out of control.

Anyone with a braincell HATES it here in the UK

Says a lot for the people buying singles.

Its interesting to look at the differences between the singles chart and the album chart in the UK. The singles chart is dominated by rubbish pop songs, and the market mainly consists of 15 year old girls. The album chart, on the other hand, has a much more balanced mix in terms of music and customers.

I know its traditional to focus on the singles chart in the music TV programmes, but I wonder if the album chart would give a better reflection of what the general public like. Is the situation similar in other countries?

Atrocious! There were radio campaigns to �kill the frog� even! Everyone hated it even more so because they were running a scam trying to lure young (pre teens) mobile users, who wouldn�t think twice before sending them a text to download the ring tone. What the didn�t realise was that there was a (very) fine print at the bottom of the screen something like �this is a subscription service, and we will send you a tune every week will cost �4 per week and ring xyz to unsubscribe. Call to xyz costs �4 a minute.�

Well, for all we know, that might just as well be this years Christmas number one!!

The above reminds me of this thread.

I suspect that a large number of these kids also have gullible parents who pay their phone bill for them, and so the kids don't really care about the costs of downloading ringtones and all the other downloadable mobile phone crud advertised non-stop on the telly at the moment.
