 YE JOLLY OLDE iTUNES U.K. CHARTS: Looking at these Top 10s, it’s almost like we’re in another country… Oh, wait—these are the U.K. charts. So who are all these people on the singles chart—Mr. Probz n Waves, Secondcity, and the chart-topping Ella Henderson? Um, we’ll have to get back to you on that, although we’re catching the whiff of a former X Factor contestant in the last-named case. And how is it that the late comedian Rik Mayall has a hit single? Bizarre. We’ve got a much better handle on the albums side. In fact, the U.K. and U.S. Top 10s have three albums in common—you can guess which ones they are—and Passenger is just outside the big board in the States. Kasabian we’re well aware of; they’re one of those Brit bands that’s huge over there, but their hugeness still hasn’t translated over here. Putting things in perspective, all of the above boldfaced names are dwarfed by concerns about the chances of England’s football team in the World Cup. (6/13a)
