CHART SPOTLIGHT. According to the eminent site Top 40 Charts, we’re pleased to welcome back Scouting For Girls. Only recently, WelcheMusic did a chart flashback on the Brit indie group’s hit “This Ain’t a Love Song.”

Scouting For Girls – Love How It Hurts

Come July, Scouting For Girls returns with “Love How It Hurts” – a track written by lead singer Roy Stride. The new single will be included on an upcoming re-issue of the album Everybody Wants to Be on TV.

According to Daily Record, the group’s front man  Roy Stride has knicked a quote from comedian when asked where he gets his funny ideas from. “He said he got them from the old lady who works in the post office and she gets them from the old lady who collects her pension every Thursday.” Steal with pride!

When Scouting for Girls Ruled Radio

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.

Edward Maya Follows “Stereo Love” with “This Is My Life”

Edward Maya’s collaboration with Vika Jigulina adds a second week on top of the Swedish singles chart. In times where hits break through simultaneously around the world, it’s interesting to note that the song was originally released back in October 2009. Maya is hopeful to add “This Is My Life,” to his successful discography. The track was issued earlier this year and has so far charted in Holland, France and Romania.


We’ve already covered the worldwide success of “Stereo Love,” and according to the track’s Wikipedia entry it will become available in the UK in May. Not surprisingly, Maya’s A listed on the BBC Radio 1 playlist alongside Timbaland/Katy Perry, Kelis, Scouting for Girls amongst others.

The first two countries to embrace Edward Maya’s “Stereo Love” were Holland and France back in November last year. Today, it tops the charts in Slovakia and Sweden.
