Look At That Little Monkey Go!

The Curious George soundtrack debuts at Number One on the Billboard charts, a huge triumph for Jack Johnson (and kiddie music in general, frankly). It must be that yellow album cover. Other debuts: the rappers Dem Franchise Boyz at Number 8, standup comic Ron White hits Number 14, Remy Ma at Number 33 and KT Tunstall (who just won a Brit award for Best British Female Artist)at Number 47. On the singles chart, Eminem is knocking on the Top 5 with "Shake That" at #6, Sean Paul heats up #8 with "Temperature," Dem Franchise Boyz are having the week of their life with "Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It" jumping from #23 to #12, Pink debuts at #24 with "Stupid Girls" and Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson (I'm sure she prefers that to American Idol winner) is back in the top 40 with "Walk Away" at #33.

Curious George is at NUmber One? Cool, though Jack Johnson is pretty limited.

Pink is for suburban dads and their kids who want to pretend they're rebelling. Jack Johnson is for people who've outgrown Raffi. Eminem is for people who miss Beavis and Butthead.

Is your headline a Howard Cossell ref?

Yes, that was Cossell's infamous Monday night Football comment I was quoting. Good catch.
