THE top 40 will take into account songs that pop into your head for no reason, it has been announced.
After recently being changed to include streaming, the UK charts will now also include tunes that appear in your brain due to completely unfathomable mental processes.
An Official Charts Company spokesman said: The criteria for entering the charts now include things like remembering your ex liked Will Smith and then having Wild Wild West stuck in your head all fucking day.
Its already having an impact on the charts. Thanks to a number of random rememberings, the current UK number one is the 1982 hit Centerfold by the J Geils Band.
You know, the one that goes na-na-na-na-na-na about a bloke whos unhappy because his girlfriends in Razzle, or something.
The new system means next weeks number one could be anything from Phil Collins 1985 hit Sussudio to You Cant Get Better Than A Kwik Fit Fitter. This is a very exciting time for music.
However, critics pointed out that the songs which pop into your head were usually the ones that made people wish they had been born deaf.
Office worker Nikki Hollis said: Itd be ok if it was the Beatles or Radiohead, but its always things like This Beat Is Technotronic going round my head like a malevolent brain parasite.
In Bruges was on the other night and thanks to a convoluted unconscious thought process involving Colin Farrell and Miami Vice, I caused Smugglers Blues by Glenn Frey to re-enter the top 40.
