  • The Irish Chart Thread (Jan to Dec 2007)

    New for 2007!

    As I mentioned in last weeks thread rather than starting a new thread each wek I'll be adding the new Irish charts here every weekend. As the charts will all be together I won't be including the chart runs but instead will do complete runs for each single / album dropping out of that weeks chart. If anyone wants specific chart runs or has a question post them here and I'll do my best to answer.

    Before the first charts of the new year here's a list of links to Irish Chart related threads which were posted on the UK Mix forums back in 2006. It might be worth checking them for the answers to some questions.

    There are 3 websites worth checking out.
    www.irma.ie - has the Top 50 singles, Top 100 artist albums and Top 30 compilations.
    www.chart-track.com - carries the Top 50 singles, Top 75 Artist albums, Top 20 compilations and Top 20 downloads. It also has full archives for these charts back to January 2000
    www.irishcharts.ie - contains a fully searchable singles database which goes right back to 1962 when the first recognised chart was compiled (though there was a Top 10 published regularly from 1959). It is restricted to Top 30 hits but seems to be updated on a regular basis. This site also contains certifications for 2005 (presumably 2006 will be added) and they have stated in their FAQ that they hope to add certifactions for earlier years when they get a chance.

      Chart Track Commentary

      The first week of 2007 sees the introduction of new chart eligibility rules: all downloads are now eligible for the Singles Chart, regardless of whether a physical version is available. The new rules make no difference to Leona, who has a third week at No1 with ‘A Moment Like This’, ahead of non-movers Akon ‘Smack That’ at No2 and Take That ‘Patience’ at No3.
      U2 have this week’s highest new entry at No6 with ‘Window In The Skies’, the second new recording from their ‘U218’ singles collection. The first new single from the album – ‘The Saints Are Coming’ – made it to No1 in November 2006. Two places behind U2 at No8 is Snow Patrol’s ‘Chasing Cars’, benefiting from the new chart rules to re-enter the Top10 on the strength of downloads. In another quiet week for new releases there is only one other new entry in the Top 20 - Eric Prydz vs Floyd ‘Proper Education’ at No14. Eric’s only previous Irish hit single was ‘Call On Me’ which spent 4 weeks at No1 in October 2004.

      After six weeks in the Top 3, U2 finally make it to No1 on the Album Chart with ‘U218 Singles’. Westlife dip to No3 after six weeks on top with ‘The Love Album’, behind Snow Patrol’s ‘Eyes Open’ which climbs from No7 to No2 to seal an all-Irish Top 3. With many of the Christmas favourites dropping back this week (notably Take That, The Beatles, Il Divo, George Michael and Mario Rosenstock), they are replaced by several of last year’s best sellers: Oasis ‘Stop The Clocks’ climbs from No5 to No4, Razorlight climb from No12 to No5 and The Killers ‘Sam’s Town’ climbs from No11 to No6.

          Chart Track hasn't really made a very clear statement of the rules that have existed in the last few months here (or elsewhere?) - as far as I can tell, "Chasing Cars" is the only 2006 release that has been excluded from Ireland's singles chart, with six weeks chopped out of what would otherwise have been a continuous 26-week run. I wonder how the reoord company managed to ensure that "no physical version" has been available in Ireland in the period during which the inferior follow-up enjoyed a much less successful chart-run, which apparently didn't happen for any of the other Irish hits that made a premature disappearance from the UK chart for similar reasons.

          Good idea to include the complete chart-runs of the drop-outs. I don't think you mentioned this in the previous thread, in which you noted that there would no longer be any need for the histories in the current charts - but I was going to suggest exactly this approach!!

          Incredibly (differences in billing notwithstanding), there seem to be fourteen acts making more than one appearance in the first new top 50, accounting for more than half the positions. And five of these - Razorlight, Snow Patrol, Killers, Shakira and Cast of High School Musical (Troy and Gabriella) - are higher with their previous single than their most recent release!

          Not only that, four further acts are in the chart with a hit that is not their most recent release - the follow-up having already been and gone:

          Perhaps the new rules (both in Ireland and the UK) will result in longer runs and reappearances of stronger, older hits rather than newer releases the record companies would prefer to promote. Which, I fear, may lead to fewer physical releases becoming available?

            What is most likely to happen with older tracks is where they are maybe used in an advert or feature heavily in a TV show and a lot of people decide to download them. Or if an artist dies or say for example the Beatles back catalogue is finally available to buy in download form.

              I think it's also entirely likely that physical singles will go exactly the same way as they did in the US when billboard allowed singles to chart on the Hot 100 based on airplay alone.

              If records chart without even having to go to the bother of issuing a physical release, then there is no incentive for the record companies to release anything other than a fraction of the singles that they release today.

              All they'll need to do is issue those "radio-singles" to coincide with the release of the video to the music channels, to make sure that both radio and TV are on the right page and promoting the same track at the same time. When the downloads kick in due to the exposure, and the track charts, no-one will even notice that the "single" isn't available to buy down in your local Golden Discs or Roxy Records.

                Just been looking in the latest edition of the RTE Guide and according to that there is a Chart Show Replay at midnight on Sundays lasting until 2am on Monday morning. Has anyone heard this? Is it on for the full 2 hours as the chart show itself is only an hour long!

                And on the subject of the chart show it could be on the move again soon. Apparantly there is to be a major shakeup at 2FM following "disappointing" listening figures. I say they should stick it back on Saturday/Sunday lunchtimes and let Larry Gogan present it - even if he prerecords it on a Friday

                  When I've tuned in at this time occasionally in recent months, no matter what the schedules have said it's always been a repeat of "Ireland's Biggest Jukebox".

                  That would certainly suit me better, as it now clashes with the Flanders Top 50 countdown on Radio Donna - which has just moved to Friday early evening, presumably so that they can present the new chart ahead of their rivals, and possibly before it can be read on the internet.

                  Or, alternatively, maybe they could put it back at lunchtime on Fridays, around whenever Larry's regular slot is these days.

                  But any change to the current approach would probably be an improvement. Recent stand-in presenters such as Nikki Hayes, and whoever did it a couple of weeks ago - Mark someone? - were infinitely better than Rick O'Shea.

                    Well what about that! No sooner do I suggest they should have Larry back at the weekend doing a proper chart show than RTE issue the following press release.....

                    LARRY HAPPY AS HE TAKES LIFE EASY

                    Legendary DJ Larry Gogan today (Monday, 8 January 2007) announced his decision to move to weekends on RTÉ 2fm after 45 successful years of week day radio.

                    In early February Larry's talent and contribution to pop radio will be honoured with his second lifetime achievement award at the Meteor Ireland Music awards. The award recognises Larry's contribution to Irish music and his relentless support of up and coming acts alongside established artists.

                    Speaking about his move to weekends on RTÉ 2fm Larry said,

                    "I feel the time is right for a change and I'm looking forward to a less demanding work schedule."

                    Head of RTÉ 2fm John Clarke commented,

                    "Larry has already made an outstanding contribution to RTÉ 2fm and I'm very pleased that he is still available to work on the station at weekends. Larry's move will make a valuable addition to an already strong RTÉ 2fm weekend schedule".

                    Date: 8 January 2007

                    About Larry Gogan
                    Larry Gogan began his RTÉ Radio broadcasting career 45 years ago and has spent 30 of those years with RTÉ 2fm. Larry has relentlessly supported Irish music, is an acknowledged pop expert and has won many music awards.

                    In 1964 he was voted Favourite DJ in a poll in the Evening Herald newspaper and was voted No. 1 DJ in various polls every year from 1964 to 1987. In 1987 he won the IRMA Award for services to Irish music, a Jacob's Award and the Hot Press Industry Award.

                    In 1988 he was given the IFPI Award and in 1996 his radio Golden Hour won the Nominees Award at the 5th Shanghai Radio Music Festival. In 2005 Terry Wogan presented him with the IRMA Honour, a lifetime achievement award for his contribution to Irish music.

                    On 1 February 2007 he is to be honoured with the prestigious Industry Award at the 2007 Meteor Ireland Music Awards to be held at The Point Theatre, Dublin.

                    Larry has played thousands of discs over the last 40 years. His favourite band is U2 and his favourite album of all time is 'The Joshua Tree'. He had the great pleasure of interviewing Larry Mullen on several occasions, most recently on the day that 'How to dismantle an Atomic Bomb' was released. People like Cliff Richard, Garth Brooks, Kris Kristofferson, Glen Campbell, Ringo Star, Roy Orbison, Michael Bolton and Tom Jones have all dropped in to Larry's Show on RTÉ 2fm.

                      Interesting!

                      If it's not a rude question.......how old is Larry now? About 65-70?

                        Well if he was, say, 20 when he started "weekday broadcasts" he must be at least 65. He seems to be very secretive about his age. I'd agree with your 65 to 70 range.

                          I guess the Irish press doesn't put everyone's age in brackets, the way they seem to do in the UK!

                          I did a quick search on the internet, just out of curiosity - but most of the references seems to be to his "Just A Minute" quiz. If readers here haven't heard of this, it's a feature on his radio show in which phoners-in have to compete to answer the most general knowledge questions correctly within sixty seconds. I don't know whether it's still running even now, but a few examples I recall from listening to it in the early 1980's include:

                          LARRY: Where does pollen come from?
                          CALLER: Pollen? Oh, from bees.
                          LARRY: No, flowers. What is a bantam?
                          CALLER: A motorbike?
                          LARRY: No, it's a small chicken or hen. Complete this book title: "Crime and......"?
                          CALLER: Prejudice?
                          LARRY: Er, no - Crime and "Punishment", it says here.....


                          But the one that seems to be all over the internet - and perhaps understandably - is:

                          LARRY: Complete this saying - "as happy as......." ?

                          [ End-of-minute gong sounds ]

                          LARRY: I'll give you a clue - think of me?

                          CALLER: ".......a pig in sh!te" ?

                            It was a short paragraph in the Irish News yesterday but no, there wasn't any mention of his age!

                                  "Because it can!!"

                                  When I saw this earlier today, I could hardly wait to see whether Rick O'Shea would feature this - or even mention it - on the chart show tonight. As it turned out, it was one of the twelve hits he played - and he did explain that it was because downloads are now included in the chart, even if - as in this case - there is no physical product available. He also mentioned that both Jojo and Just Jack are in the chart on downloads only - the latter only hitting the shops today.

                                  With a smaller market than the UK, I think this is exactly the sort of thing we can expect in the months ahead - old hits returning for no particular reason.

                                  Unless anyone actually in Ireland can reveal whether there was some special reason that this track should have been downloaded so much this week? In the UK, "Don't Stop Me Now" was more than 100 places higher in last week's Top 200.

                                    Chart Track Commentary

                                    Snow Patrol’s ‘Eyes Open’ returns for a fifth stint at the top of the Album Chart this week: in the nine months since release last April, the album has never dipped lower than No12 in the chart, with 20 weeks in the Top 3, and only narrowly missed out on topping the 2006 year-end chart to Westlife’s ‘The Love Album’.
                                    U2 drop to No2 after one week at No1 with ‘U218 Singles’, ahead of Razorlight’s self-titled second album, up from No5 to No3. Amy Winehouse climbs from No16 to No4 with ‘Back To Black’ three months after release – a personal best for her on this chart (her first album ‘Frank’ never made the Top 40).

                                    Leona has a fourth week at No1 on the Singles Chart with ‘A Moment Like This’, heading a Top 4 which is unchanged from last week: Akon at No2, Take That at No3 and Cascada at No4. There are 2 very different new entries in this week’s Top 20: Malahide’s Director have their third hit single in less than a year with ‘Leave It To Me’ at No17 and Queen have a download hit at No19 with the 31-year old classic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

                                      As well as the three download-only singles I [ and Rick O'Shea! ] mentioned earlier, presumably the Gnarls Barkley single is also almost entirely selling on downloads only by now. Therefore:

                                      .......this all looks nicely consistent! I'm not sure whether we can deduce anything much about the impact of downloads on the overall market, though?

                                      From this week I've decided to give the last 26 weekly positions for each artist and compilation album leaving the charts. For the singles and downloads it will be full chart runs.

                                      Pogues & Kirsty MacColl - Fairytale of New York 4 4 11 16 26 33 36 44 xx46 30
                                      www.irishcharts.ie doesn't seem to have registered the recent top 30 re-entry of this hit, and is also missing part of one of its other chart-runs. The full chart history of "Fairytale......." is:

                                      1987/1988: 06 01 01 01 01 05 10 (7 weeks)

                                      1991/1992: 21 10 17 12 12 (5 weeks)

                                      2005/2006: 04 04 11 16 26 33 36 44 (8 weeks)

                                      2007: 30 (1 week)

                                      So its total weeks in the chart to date is 21. No doubt it'll be a few more by this time next year.......



                                      Finally, something I can't believe we appear to have overlooked until now is that the original run of "Bohemian Rhapsody" isn't included in www.irishcharts.ie - although we probably detected that only two weeks of the second run are there.

                                      Beatlened's research last year revealed the original 1975/76 run to have been:

                                      17 07 02 01 01 01 01 01 01 02 04 04 06 10 17 (14 weeks)

                                      Unluckily, the 1991/1992 run straddled the short strike period - so all we seem to have here is:

                                      04 01 01 01 01 IN IN IN 06 07 10 19 (12 weeks)

                                      Therefore this week's re-entry of "Bohemian Rhapsody" is its 27th chart week, making it one of nine current hits with 20 or more weeks in the chart so far!!

                                          Also CHASING CARS, and this gives maybe the strongest indication of what download only sales can do to the main chart. #3 download, #6 overall. Presumably the no. 1 and 2 downloads would chart in the top 5 on downloads only.

                                          As CZB shows with the full chart runs for this single, there's a stray #46 showing in Shakyfan's chart run for the Pogues .

                                            Just to clarify that "stray 46"!

                                            I use an x to show a week out of the Top 50. xx46 is actually meant to mean x x46 or 46 weeks out of the chart so what I actually meant was 36, 44, out for 46 weeks and back in at 30. Should have made that clearer.

                                              .......and that really is the first appearance in the Irish chart of the Fratellis - with any of their singles!

                                              It must be rare for a group to have three top 20 hits in the UK, none of which trouble Ireland's Top 50 at all (until now) - which makes me wonder if this new hit is due to the impact of downloads. Could the three recent Fratellis UK hits actually have been unreleased physically, rather than just unpopular, in Ireland??

                                                I don't think that's at all unusual.

                                                One of my favourite acts, Sunscreem (3 UK Top 20 hits, a further 5 UK top 40 singles), never made the Irish Top 30. I'd lay money that they never made the Irish Top 50, either.

                                                  Snow Patrol celebrate another week at No1 on the Album Chart with ‘Eyes Open’, their sixth week at the top since release, but the first time they’ve managed two consecutive weeks.
                                                  Razorlight climb back up the chart for a fifth week in a row, up from No3 to No2 this week - they’re still chasing the elusive top spot having now had five weeks in the runners-up position. Amy Winehouse has a similar steady 5-week climb up the chart, up from No4 to No3 with ‘Back To Black’, fuelled by two Top 40 singles – ‘Rehab’ at No27 and ‘You Know I’m No Good’ at No39.

                                                  Leona sits comfortably on top of the Singles Chart for a fifth consecutive week with ‘A Moment Like This’, ahead of Akon’s ‘Smack That’ at No2 and Cascada’s ‘Truly Madly Deeply’ at No3. Just Jack is this week’s highest climber, up from download-only No28 last week to No4 with ‘Starz In Their Eyes’, and is also this week’s most downloaded song. Highest new entry honours go to Mika with ‘Grace Kelly’ at No9, just ahead of the only other new entry in this week’s Top 10 - 2006 Australian Idol winner Damien Leith who debuts at No10 with ‘Night Of My Life’.
