I love music charts. They really fascinate me and to be honest it's quite a scary obsession. I regularly check the UK and US singles and album charts to see all the movers and shakers, but today I thought, 'why limit yourself? There's a whole host of music out there, go discover something new'. So, with that in mind, here's what's happening over in, er, Switzerland:

1. 'Bring en hei' by Baschi (don't act like you don't know. This song has been in the charts for 84 weeks!!!)
2. '4 Minutes' by Madonna & Justin Timberlake (neither of them will make it, trust me)
3. 'Mercy' by Duffy (oh, this is getting a bit familiar)
4. 'All Summer Long' by Kid Rock (er, weird)
5. 'This Is The Life' by Amy MacDonald (what? Do we actually export this stuff outside the UK?)
6. 'Love Is You' by Thomas Godoj (fo shizz)
7. 'Better In Time' by Leona Lewis (global superstar)
8. 'American Boy' by Estelle feat. Kanye West (the UK soul sensation, i.e. a poor man's Rihanna)
9. 'Feel The Rush (Mascots Song)' by Shaggy feat. Trix & Flix (no, seriously, Shaggy)
10. 'I'm Yours' by Jason Mraz (big in Switzerland)

So, what have we learnt? The Swiss aren't immune to the lure of the superstar; Madonna, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Leona Lewis...Shaggy. They also still seem to enjoy the odd blast of nu metal, albeit via Kid Rock. They also have to endure some British exports, and I hope and pray that one day they will forgive us for Duffy and Amy MacDonald.
