  • Wow that's amazing Akini

    What an almighty milestone. I've still got another 4 years yet before i hit that milestone.

    01.(RE) ABBA - Thank You for the Music (Best Comeback)

    A very apt song to celebrate your 10th anniversary of daily chart goodness. <3

    02.(RE) Demi Lovato - Sorry Not Sorry

    I've seen this bobbing in and out of your chart quite a lot recently, especially on Saturday mornings. What's the reason for this getting such a boost of late? I'm guessing it'll have something to do with RuPaul's drag race maybe?

    03.(RE) Lindsey Stirling - Underground

    I've also seen Tansike's latest chart (hate that i've not commented that much recently ) but i must check this out.

    09.(NE) Tones and I - Dance Monkey (Highest Debut)

    Ohh yay! I just replied to your comment in my chart thread. I'm happy to see you've made something of a discovery with Tones and I. It still amazes me how Australia and Sweden seem to break the biggest new music and artists first before anywhere else.

    16.(NE) Charli XCX & Christine and the Queens - Gone

    This is a great collaboration. Not one i would've expected to be honest but i'm delighted this happened. It's been a good couple of years since they both made my top 5 so kudos to the girls. <3

    Best of the brest

        Following your chart has become a part of my daily UKMix routine for many years.
        'Thank You for the Music' is the perfect song to celebrate your anniversary.
        Thanks for following the chart over the years, Benny! And thanks for introducing me to some quality gems, too!

I don't have figures on-hand to back this up, but I don't think OSD has held up especially well or gets as much recurrent airplay (and general mainstream awareness in 2019) as other "smaller" hits from both Mariah and Boyz II Men. Its success made sense at the time - combining two of the biggest chart forces of the early/mid-90's on one sentimental smash - but it hasn't been used in enough shows/commercials/memes/etc to remain in the average music fan's consciousness 20+ years later (compared to something like "Don't Stop Believin," which found ways to resonate with multiple generations).
        Yeah, definitely. Even if you remove "All I Want for Christmas Is You", which has taken on a life of its own really as the preeminent contemporary Christmas classic, I'd say "Hero", "Always Be My Baby", and "We Belong Together" are far better remembered than "One Sweet Day".

        Yeah, I'm glad that I actually like the song. I hope he starts pushing "Rodeo" soon, though, now that the record is his.

I didn't realize/forgot that you'd started posting your chart so soon after joining the site, so your personal chart and UKMIX experience have basically gone hand-in-hand since Day 1 (well, Day 5). I did a little digging, and it looks like I didn't have the sense to pop in here until August 2010, largely thanks to Taylor and Mariah. Like you mentioned with the domino effect, I love watching (and experiencing) the infectiousness/influence as songs that people hold dear spill across multiple personal charts. You've given us something really fun and fascinating to follow for so long, so thank YOU for this decade of consistent dedication.
        Ah, many thanks for posting here over the years! Through your Kylie tribute, "Ours" beyond-the-surface analysis, and 'underground' chart-toppers as of late, I've really gotten a lot of great recommendations from you over the years. I think "Your Disco Needs You" might've been the biggest impact you had on me (and, by extension, this chart).

        Yeah, "Sorry Not Sorry" is actually my most-played song of 2019 thus far, and it's entirely down to it soundtracking the greatest lip-sync in RPDR history.

        Someone in the comments section joked that those two had more chemistry than Shawn and Camila.

              • I still don't get "Old Town Road".

                Nice to see "I Knew You Were Trouble" - Strangely, I'm slowly getting into Swift - I still think that she's quite basic most of the time but she has some legit bops.

                Nice to see Alvaro Soler! - "How Do You Sleep?" is amazinga and should be #1 everywhere.

                  • OMG hooooow did you discover Germany-based hunk Alvaro Soler?

                    And on TOP of it all he's in between these classics!

                    Question: If you had the chance to be in bed with Alvaro BUT at the same time must never ever listen to the four queens here again, would you do it?

                      Ah, give it a few more listens. It may grow on you.

                      Taylor is a phenomenal songwriter at her very best. Even if the production is pretty basic, the lyricism is usually excellent.

                      "How Do You Sleep?" is lovely indeed - definitely one of the best singles Sam's released.

                      That's super easy - I wouldn't! Guys are cute, but there isn't one alive I'd sacrifice my fave divas (or their music) for.

                        • "Aphrodite" should have been a single. "Better Than Today" killed the era.
                          Nice to see Niall Horan (I can't wait to get his sophomore album).

                          If you want to discover Alvaro Soler, you should listen to "Loca" - It's my favourite song by him.

                            I checked out "Loca". It's not bad!

                            I agree that "Aphrodite" should have been a single. It's one of her most underrated gems!

                                          • Between the 90s countdown and Higher Love, it's been nice revisiting Whitney - and I see she's popping up in your last couple days near the bottom.

                                            Adventure of a Lifetime is one of my favorite Coldplay songs.

                                            Looks like you're over Boyfriend?

                                              Yeah, between RPDR getting me (back) into "So Emotional" and the Thunderpuss remix of "It's Not Right but It's Okay", and "Higher Love", I've really been playing Whitney quite a lot this year.

                                              It's one of my Coldplay faves, too! Under this pressure, under this weight, we are diamonds taking shape is one of my fave Coldplay lyrics ever.

                                              I still think it's just an okay song. She's capable of much better.

                                                    "Unconditionally" is always overlooked. My favourite music video by Katy <3
                                                    Well, you'll be pleased to see where "Stay" ends up today!

                                                          • Hi Akini

                                                            01.(NE) Megan Thee Stallion - Hot Girl Summer (feat. Nicki Minaj & Ty Dolla $ign) (Hot Shot Debut)

                                                            So i'm feeling very much out of the loop with this track. I've never heard of Megan Thee Stallion prior to this tracks release, and the fact it's doing so well on iTunes particularly in America. I checked out the track last night and enjoyed this much more than the new single from Katy Perry. Doubt it'll be another 24 hour #1 for me purely because my favourites over the past week have been pretty solidified (my entire top 6 last weekend being non movers which i'm sure was a first for my chart).

                                                            02.(RE) Whitney Houston - It's Not Right but It's Okay (Best Comeback)

                                                            Classic Whitney. A truly majestic singer of every level. Ohh i noticed that Higher love is now #1 on UK iTunes. Love how the UK have really got behind this track, it's possibly doing better here than in Norway where i expected the song to be huge purely because of Kygo's connection.

                                                            03.(RE) P!nk - Courage

                                                            I've still not herd this yet. I'm going to rectify this situation. Then again i've been quite underwhelmed with P!nk's output from what i've heard from Hurts 2b human

                                                            10.(RE) Ava Max - Freaking Me Out

                                                            This is slowly growing on me but its nowhere near as impactful as Sweet but psycho imo.

                                                            19.(NE) Katy Perry - Small Talk

                                                            I'm quite underwhelmed with Small talk which is disappointing considering how much i loved Never really over by comparison. It might grow on me but i just wish the production on the backing music progressed more throughout the track.

                                                            Best of the rest:
