    Your impact Thanks again for introducing me to it (and translating. "Voor Altijd" sounds a lot like "For All-Time" in English, so it's good to know the proper translation actually fits that)!

      Your translation is even better than mine.

TBD. That also put "Message In A Bottle" back on my mind just in time for the Red (Taylor's Version) Survivor too).
        A perfect storm then!

        It really does. The video's also so gorgeous.

She mentioned something about a video for it, so maybe that could make a difference...
        Perhaps. It does sound like the kinda song I need to spend more time with to really connect with, though.

        "See You Again" was okay. I really like "Cupid's Got a Shotgun" and I envisioned a really fun video for that one.

          Your impact! It seemed like "She Don't Know" might have a chance to move even higher this week, but Hurricane Bey's probably thrown a wrench in that (pulling my attention in a different direction).

          Shame on me for still not having a good grip on your tastes after all this time, but at least my misjudgment made for a fantastic surprise in this case! "he looks like he works with his hands..."

          Yeah, I do enjoy all the songs they chose to push as singles, but Blown Away could've used a more playful upbeat single like "Cupid's" too.

          Thanks again, Akini!

            • I trust CZB will regard Crush as a faller from your 1 to 3 as it is the same song, right?

              If only Charli had as much love from the public with her Robin S track as Beyonce. I much prefer Charli's, myself.

              Your #1 is quite nice.

                  Ha, yeah, I might be the only one around here who always separates different versions of the same song on my chart I just like being able to see/look back on how the different versions stacked up against each other (since combining them wouldn't indicate if I slightly or vastly preferred one over the other(s), or rare cases like "Crush," where they're nearly equal/I flip-flop between both over the same week).

                  It was definitely disappointing that the "Used To Know Me" video didn't give that song any renewed traction on official charts Charli's lack of chart success in general perplexes me, since a lot of her singles sound plenty radio-friendly/mass-appeal to my ears Any rate: I like both Robin S homages, but Bey's undoubtedly delivered stronger lead singles than "Break My Soul" before.

                  Thanks for checking it out! I've gotta set aside some time to give Sophie Cates some proper attention after noticing what a splash she made on your latest chart...

                  Thanks again, Blondini!

                    Yeah! I like it, and I'm not sure which version she actually wrote/recorded first, but something about the song just seems to flow slightly better in Dutch? I might just be biased because I fell in love with the Dutch version first, though.

                    Thanks again, RayRay!

                      I also prefer the Dutch version. Probably because I heard it first too. She did release the English version first on Spotify though.

                      We took it to #5 on the UKMIX chart.

                        Damn, well, so much for my theory that the Dutch version came first Ah well, hopefully she continues this trend of offering her new singles in both languages.

                        Hype! I wonder if that's a record high for an all-Dutch song on the UKMIX Parade?

                        • A #1 in Dutch is pretty next level I think I charted a Dutch song years ago after visiting Amsterdam tho It's a very summery song, isn't it? That it pips Bey to the top is a kii tho. I have to say Bey's song is turning out to be a grower. I just wish I could cut the first chorus. Like build up to Beyonce! Don't show all your cards right at the beginning!

                          And OMG Mitski is back, Trouble is back, Kacey is back! You must have found one of my playlists!

                              Let me know the name of that Dutch CheapChart hit when you get a chance! Yeah, "Voor Altijd"s perfectly poppy melody transcends language barriers (though it beat "Break My Soul" by literally one play, so Bey's only got herself to blame for insisting on non-conventional rollouts/release strategies) Ha, I'd love to hear that CT Edit! There's a lot about "Break My Soul" that does work, but something keeps it from feeling on-par with her most impactful uptempos.

                              Your influence is ever-present, sir (Well, and the fact that Mid-Year Update time is fast-approaching. Plus Akini's All-Time Albums list).

                                Oh you'll hate it. I was visiting a Dutch friend who had been a foreign exchange student. And we were at a bar and she mentioned this was a hit at the time and the Dutch were very proud because they only sing in Dutch and that was unusual.



                                And I HATE that she released Break My Soul mid-week! Though she wouldn't have my chart this week if she had released on Friday since I was in the mountains so she was clearly doing it solely to accommodate my busy schedule.

                                  Yeah, I'm not very familiar with Phoebe at all, but I've enjoyed the collaborations I've heard (that Taylor tune, MUNA's "Silk Chiffon," and I guess she co-wrote Lauv's "Canada"). Any recommendations from her own albums? (Though you've already got me pretty immersed in Silver Sphere Sophie this week).

                                    I have to say I like Phoebe's pre-famous era stuff (Funeral), very Laura Marling-like singer-songwriter music.

                                          Treated me kind, sweet destiny, carried me through desperation... Prayed through the nights, carried the weight on my own and now I know I've succeeded in finding the place I conceived... I had a Vision of Love

                                            They're a trio from the US that I got into thanks to Akini's chart, and they just released their third album last Friday. I think they're best-known for "Crying On The Bathroom Floor," which Will Young covered (and named his album after). They haven't done anything quite as light and poppy as "Voor Altijd," but you might like their "I Know A Place":



                                            Thanks again, RayRay!

                                              • Will circle back to your weekly chart, but what a competitive year it's been. Those scores are pretty tight.

                                                "We Don't Talk About Bruno" is, by far, my favourite! You haven't gone for the most mainstream Weeknd song. Also, I doubt "Lost Track" will appear that high on any other mid-/year-end lists. Happy that "No One Dies from Love" is top 10.

                                                  No worries, no rush! Normally I wouldn't post those both so close together, but I wanted to drop the Mid-Year Update right on July 1st, and that happens to be a Friday/chart day this year.

                                                  Encanto had pretty much the whole world talking earlier this year! Very curious to see the eventual order of its singles/highlights on your YEC. SMH @ the UKMIX size queens not giving "Lost Track" a chance due to its length, though I get that people are tired of sub-3 minute-songs becoming such a pervasive trend strictly to suit streaming services, but that doesn't mean talented artists can't deliver high-quality, worthwhile products under those restrictions. Songs shouldn't be automatically considered "incomplete" just because they lack a bridge or 3rd repetition of the chorus. Embrace atypical song structures! That mini-rant aside: really glad to see you quote so many entries, and hopefully your appreciation for them continues to grow in the second half of 2022!

                                                  Thanks again, Akini!
