The first Tuesday of the month = latest Top 40 singles poll. But as we enter the Autumn of diss content, can anything topple Gnarls from the top of the leaderboard?

Ah September. The sun is back (Back! BACK!) in earnest and we can look ahead to the Autumn release schedule after a somewhat disappointing Summer in terms of chart-friendly bangers and anthems (sure threre's been a few but look at the leaderboard below and you'll notice the dearth so far). Anyway, time to review August's collection of top 40 hits:

2. Christina Aguilera - Ain't No Other Man ( 26 : 76.5)
3. Nelly Furtado - Maneater ( 26 : 96.3)
4. Lily Allen - Smile ( 24 : 66.7)

Halfway through the year, it's time to rate the chart hits of sunny June. But as World Cup fever hits, there are more (rubbish) songs than ever in the list. Fairly warned be thee, says I...

[Poll #762410]

Well predictably Rihanna was beaten off in the end by crazy old Gnarls Barkley and his three more ticks. 'Crazy' got more ticks (27) than any other Top 40 single this year and 87.1% vote share, making it the most popular chart hit of the year among Poptimist members. Who says we're not in touch with Joe Still-Buys-CDs / £50 Mang?

And so now to cast your minds back...way back...to those heady days of May 2006...

Sugababes 'Red Dress' came top in the March poll which seems like a good thing even though it's a track from a 2005 album and was re-recorded with the rub new one. No time to muse on that much further though as it's time for the next lot - will it be an April shower of sh1te? judging by the list below, not quite - some real corkers here: [Poll #739256]

March - a bumper month for Top 40 hits with quite a few great ones but even more appalling ones. Go do.

January's Top 40 Singles poll saw apparently everyone's favourite indie-pop stalwarts Belle & Sebastian clinch the top spot with 17 ticks and 54.8% of the vote, with Jose Gonzales, Mylo ft. Freeform Five and Will Young all languishing in joint second place with 13 ticks each. A traditionally weak month there, but things are starting to hot up a little in February, maybe?
