Morning poptimists! The Brit Award nominations are out and as usual there's plenty of dreck involved. But is there any wheat to this chaff?

Big ol' poll under the cut )

Fear not dudes - the 2011 chart polls will return as a monthly endeavour. Hopefully there will be enough songs per month that everyone will find something to tick. In the meantime, here's a quick poll about a certain upcoming awards ceremony (full list of nominations here)...

Hollow back-slapping maybe, but it's still our best approximation to a music industry compass. It's time for the Brit Award Nominees... )

(the Brits themselves are live on ITV on 18th Feb)

Popjustice sums it all up nicely

The list of bands (both UK and International) makes for underwhelming reading, but I think the list of UK singles from 2007 is quite a reasonable reflection of what's been going on in British pop*:

Leona Lewis – Bleeding Love
Mika – Grace Kelly
Take That – Shine
Kaiser Chiefs – Ruby
Sugababes – About You Now
Mark Ronson Ft Amy Winehouse – Valerie
Kate Nash – Foundations
The Hoosiers – Worried About Ray
James Blunt – 1973
Mutya Buena – Real Girl

Personally, I'd have trouble picking a winner out of Take That and Sugababes. The only truly mediocre song on that list is Mutya and her string sample.

*Call The Shots wuz robbed, etc
