Play Your Charts Right

We all think we know how the Top 40 SHOULD go, don't we? We all think we can rank the 40 top-selling songs of the moment in order of merit, according to musical goodness as it occurs to us.

The question is, how many of you are willing to put your pop instincts to the test? To find out how closely your idea of what is hot and what is not accords with everyone else in the UK?

Well now you can. Radio 1 have made a great new game called Play Your Charts Right, in which you're invited to predict whether one song is higher or lower in the chart than another. The more you get right, the higher your score.

So what are you waiting for? Let's PLAY...

(Oh, and if you want to show off your scores, by all means put them in the comments box under here...)

    I played this and got all the answers right, now I feel pleased with myself.
    Thank you Chart Blog.

  • Comment number 2.

    I had:

    Example - 'Kickstarts' (#8)
    Tinie Tempah - 'Pass Out' (#35)
    Plan B - 'She Said' - (#27)
    Eminem ft Rihanna - 'Love The Way You Lie' (#6)
    Big Boi - 'Shutterbug' - (#37)
    Eminem - 'Not Afraid' - (#10)
    Ke$ha - 'Your Love Is My Drug' (#24)
    Skepta - 'Rescue Me' - (#14)

    And got 8/8!

    Woo-hoo! I'm a chart genius and I'm not even from this country. I think I deserve bonus points.

    I got:

    Edward Maya featuring Vika Jigulina: 'Stereo Love' (#21)
    Kelly Rowland: 'Commander' (#8)
    Kylie Minogue: 'All The Lovers' (#3)
    Sean Kingston and Justin Bieber: 'Eenie Meenie' (#20)
    Eminem featuring Rihanna: 'Love The Way You Lie' (#6)
    Iyaz: 'Solo' (#39)
    Ke$ha: 'Your Love Is My Drug' (#24)
    Shakira featuring Fleshlyground: 'Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)' (#25)

    Only challenging part was wondering who was higher, Shakira or Ke$ha.

    It's really hard when they ask you one with only one positins difference isn't it? I kept getting 'Fire With Fire' and 'Gettin' Over You'.
