2010 CHART REWIND. Time flies and exactly one year ago, English indie pop band Scouting for Girls ruled the radio in its native country with “This Ain’t a Love Song.” It was the first single off the sophomore album Everybody Wants to Be on TV, which was followed by another three – “Famous,” “Don’t Want to Leave You” and “Take a Chance.”
“This Ain’t a Love Song” made its initial debut on the singles chart in early April 2010. It topped both /the sales and radio airplay chart in the UK, charting across Europe and Australia/New Zealand. Their eponymous debut was released in 2007 and included no less than seven singles. The biggest hit was “She’s So Lovely” which peaked at No.2.
A year ago, Scouting for Girls fended off competition from Cheryl Cole’s “Parachute” which climbed 3-2 on that week’s airplay chart. The group succeeded Lady Gaga and Beyoncé’s “Telephone” as the UK No.1.
The group is yet to chart in Sweden.
