Watch out, here they come. The quirky band Scissor Sisters cut up the competition and landed their first #1 spot on the UK Singles Charts with “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’”. Their self-titled album spent four weeks at the top of the charts between July 2004 and February 2005, but this is their first hit single, which was co-written by rocketman Elton John.
According to Billboard, Justin Timberlake’s “SexyBack” spent some time at the top but has been bumped to number 2. “Promiscuous” by Nelly Furtado comes in at number three, Robbie Williams' “Rudebox” takes 4th place, and Shakira's “Hips Don’t Lie” completes the top five.
