  • 4 (NEW) Babymetal – Pa Pa Ya!!
    Chart Run: *4*- / 1w

    Huge comeback. I just love how catchy it is, the hook is very memorable and it is totally trademark Babymetal sound.

      • I agree with your comment on "God Control"! The song on its own doesn't really work for me.

        "Find U Again" needs to grow

        I like these songs in your Top 20:

        Miley Cyrus – Mother’s Daughter

        Keiino – Spirit In The Sky

        Sabrina Carpenter – In My Bed

        Duncan Laurence – Arcade

        Ashley O (Miley Cyrus) – On A Roll (I have to say I'm getting tired of it quickly tho)

        Zara Larsson – All The Time

        I hope I find the time to check out these songs:

        Lindsey Stirling – Underground

        Keiino – Praying

        Kameron Michaels – Freedom

        Ellie Goulding & Juice WRLD – Hate Me

        Inna – Te Vas

        Astrid S – The First One

        Taylor Swift – You Need To Calm Down

          Glad you're also enjoying it that much! It's definitely one of their best songs I've ever heard to be honest, it's so incredibly catchy and the rap also fits very well to the song. Plus their live performance at Glastonbury was awesome too! Can't wait for their album!

            Thanks for coming by and glad to hear you're enjoying some entries Keiino are such a surprise for me, their new single is just as good as "Spirit In The Sky". Hopefully they continue with making music as a trio.

              Glad I'm not the only one who thinks the video actually deserved a better song with "God Control" - it's often the other way Though I have to admit the song is slowly growing on me these days and it's still one of the better ones on her new album.

              Good to see you like several entries on my chart!
              I'm feeling the same when it comes to "On A Roll"...
              Had no idea you were familiar with Sabrina's "In My Bed". What a bop!

              Hopefully you'll find some time to check out some of the ones you'd like to check out, especially Keiino's "Praying" (it's as strong as "Spirit In The Sky" ) but also Astrid S' "The First One" as that one is a big surprise for me and I'm sure you may enjoy it as well. If it doesn't click on the first listen you should give it some more chances as it's been a big grower for me.

                    • Lindsey is indeed unstoppable!

                      I'm a bit surprised (and disappointed) that the latest hits by Shawn Mendes and Katy Perry are already out. I didn't expect the chart-runs of "Never Really Over" and "If I Can't Have You" being that short

                      Tarja's new single is holding on well despite being underwhelming. It's not bad, though, and that's why finishing lower Top 10 for a couple of weeks is reasonable, I guess.
                      Still excited about the album, though! Only one month to go!

                      "Madame X"'s chart-run is tragic as well But I feel you. Even though I appreciate her artistry and her finally going very experimental... I can't deal with the vocal production most of the time.

                      • Thank you [MENTION=32891]Mainshow[/MENTION]

                        Yes, she is. It's crazy how successful she has been for me with every of her releases so far

                        Hmm... I know. I do like them ("Señorita" and "Never Really Over") but somehow there are currently so many great tunes out there that I like even more. Maybe they'll come back one day; especially when they release new albums.

                        Yeah, Tarja's track is doing pretty good after all. Going by chart points, it already surpassed "Dead Promises" despite that one being a #1 hit on my charts Also looking forward to "In The Raw" though I really have to admit I'm not as excited as I was with her previous eras so far. She always had one fantastic single before the album came out ("Victim Of Ritual" for CITD and "Innocence" for TSS). Fingers crossed we will get another song before the album drops.

                        Glad you feel similar to me in "Madame X"' case! It's not a bad album at all, but too difficult to get into for me.

                        • 14 (NEW) Au/Ra – Dance In The Dark
                          Chart Run: *14*- / 1w

                          Not too bad, kinda poppy but still has some gravitas and an undertone to it.

                          25 (NEW) Kygo & Whitney Houston – Higher Love
                          Chart Run: *25*- / 1w

                          I just can't get into it. Whitney's voice is too overproduced in it to the point of me barely recognizing it.

                              Are you familiar with some of Au/Ra's earlier stuff? Because "Dance In The Dark" is actually the first song I know from her as a lead artist so I can't really compare it, but I'm enjoying what I'm hearing.

                              Aw. Maybe "Higher Love" will be a grower for you? As it works surprisingly good for me!

Tim's such a bland main character too (they definitely gave him more personality in the movie). It's one thing in the core series games where you're supposed to put yourself in the protagonist's shoes, so they leave a lot of things about the main character vague, but Tim Goodman is meant to be a fully-fleshed character with a specific backstory and motivations.

But now I just reaized that’s probably not how he meant it.

                                  Communication is such a tricky thing. I recently heard that it’s not about how you say something but how the other person receives what you’re saying…

His coming out was also more like a ‘oh, and btw…’ instead of a long letter or something and that’s cool. Maybe I just didn’t find them but it was also cool to see there were no negative reactions to that so I think he did everything right in that aspect.
                                  Yeah, there didn't seem to be a major sales/streaming/airplay drop at all after his announcement! I still wish OTR would fizzle out already but it was encouraging to see that VERY few (if any) hip-hop/rap fans suddenly turned their back on him after he came out.

                                  It's legal for both medical and recreational use in California now (though some cities can still impose restrictions on businesses selling it within their jurisdiction, and unfortunately, that's the case in the suburb where I live). Still, I'd be open to trying it again sometime, since I haven't at all since college.

                                  • Looks like only Lindsey can beat Lindsey lately "Underground" made a pretty solid first impression, but I'm liking "The Upside" even more! (Though I'd still love to hear a version with some lyrics...)
                                  • OoOh, "In My Bed" made a similar jump on my latest chart, so it's awesome to learn that we're having similar experiences with that song! I haven't followed Sabrina's career too closely, but this could definitely become my favorite of what I've heard from her.
                                  • Is "I Fell In Love With The Devil" suffering a bit from getting released too late? I remember you showing that track a lot of love, so I thought it might make a bigger splash here after being announced as an official single.
                                  • Aw, I missed Ellie's week inside the Top 10. Hopefully there's a video in the works to help it rebound. This current era of hers has really been all-over-the-place sound/style-wise, and it feels like they're just trying anything/everything until she scores a big hit again.
                                  • YES! "Find U Again" has finally broken through! Usually I wouldn't be quite so excited about a No. 40 debut but it seemed like you weren't feeling that track much at all, so I'll take this over nothing!

                                  Yet another chart that perks me up, Tancel!

                                  • Your #1 is unsurprisingly good! I feel like Lindsey's good/bad song ratio is like 95%.

                                    Good to see "Higher Love" debut. Hope it climbs! Whitney's vocals just sound divine on the track. I miss her voice.

                                    I thought he was just a bit better than okay live, but the studio version slays his live performance.

Just one year later, this topic has already almost 284,000 views and 4,545 replies – and I’m speechless!

                                    From the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much for taking the time to visit this topic. It’s still the thing I enjoy the most and it’s amazing to see people care to check it out – let alone also doing a reply here and there. Special shoutouts to @Mainshow @crystalphoenix @Magnus @heppolo @luckyONE @Haribo (I miss you ), @JSparksFan and @JakeP who all contributed 100+ posts each to this little topic here that started as something that I thought would be forgotten after a few weeks but over seven years later it’s as big as never before. Thank you (and I hope you all don’t mind that I mentioned you <3).
                                    Congrats on building and maintaining such an incredible personal chart! The effort you put into the summaries, chart runs, certifications, images, and responding to each individual post is just insane, but I most appreciate the music! Your taste is unique, and it's fun checking your chart out regularly. Sometimes I'll pop in and be too lazy to actually post something, but I always enjoy following this. Cheers to seven more years!

                                      You do have a very good point here. It’s weird how offensive some people of our community are. But to be fair, it’s probably similar in every ‘community’? We could talk about the Taylor Swift / “You Need TO Calm Down” situation here; I mean, instead of being happy that she’s supporting us, there were many people from the LGBTQ+ community who tear her down and said it’s all fake etc.
                                      Sometimes I’m really wondering why there are so many people like this. So many things could be much easier if all people would pull in the same direction…

                                      Yeah. Doing things through text/online isn’t the best ways for many things anyway. I don’t even like phone calls as even though you’re basically talking to each other, you still miss out a lot from someone’s gestures and something can still come across as completely different than how it was meant.

                                      That’s so sweet and fantastic! Sometimes it’s very tricky though, as I already experienced situations where I thought I was very empathic and polite, but the other person still got it the wrong way simply because of the (personal) situation she was in. That's why I really respect people who try to go deeper into the communication topic, like studingy communication things and stuff like that. This must be one of the most interesting things about human.

                                      He’s at 15 weeks now, one more to die Mariah and “Despacito”. Will be interesting to see if the new “Bad Guy” remix will take the crown or what happens. I wouldn’t be surprised if it stops at 16 weeks as well. But yeah, it was nice to see there weren’t many negative reactions.

                                      Oh wow, so it must be easy to get it… what about the price? Is it expensive in your opinion? What does that restriction exactly mean?
                                      It’s really a struggle to get it here sometimes, but I love to use it every now and then. Also, I ‘trained’ myself when it comes to its consummation; like when I started using it I had huge problems going up the next morning, I always ate tons of stuff etc. nowadays I have no problem with going up, don’t eat more than normal etc. because I thought that when I use it, I still need to function normally and my daily life shouldn’t suffer from it.

                                      Also, speaking of legalization, I would love if the Swiss government legalize it over here. Switzerland needs millions of millions of Swiss francs for our retirement system but they have no idea how to get it, so a lot of people are screaming that legalizing it would easily cover that hole through taxes (we already have tobacco taxes for normal cigarettes; Switzerland actually has taxes for EVERYTHING, not sure if it’s the same/similar in the US). A shame that it will take our government another million years to finally get what the people already think…

                                      • OoOh, "In My Bed" made a similar jump on my latest chart, so it's awesome to learn that we're having similar experiences with that song! I haven't followed Sabrina's career too closely, but this could definitely become my favorite of what I've heard from her.
                                      • Is "I Fell In Love With The Devil" suffering a bit from getting released too late? I remember you showing that track a lot of love, so I thought it might make a bigger splash here after being announced as an official single.
                                      • Aw, I missed Ellie's week inside the Top 10. Hopefully there's a video in the works to help it rebound. This current era of hers has really been all-over-the-place sound/style-wise, and it feels like they're just trying anything/everything until she scores a big hit again.
                                      • YES! "Find U Again" has finally broken through! Usually I wouldn't be quite so excited about a No. 40 debut but it seemed like you weren't feeling that track much at all, so I'll take this over nothing!

                                      Yet another chart that perks me up, Tancel!
                                      Woah, glad to hear that about “The Upside”! Funny how Akini and you both enjoyed this a lot on your first spins as it took some plays to actually grow on me. It’s the first time since her debut era back in 2013 that she releases two instrumental singles in a row, so maybe one with some lyrics is coming next? Lindsey just confirmed that there will be only two songs with featured artists on her upcoming album, but one of these artists will be Amy Lee and I can't see this not being a single at some point.

                                      Already saw the performance of “In My Bed” over in your topic and it made me smile! Sabrina is also still very new to me, at least her solo stuff as I know her from some featurings (she was also featured on a Lindsey Stirling Christmas single) but “In My Bed” makes a fantastic impression and I’m getting excited for the whole album now (comes out this Friday).

                                      Hmm… not much. “I Fell In Love With The Devil” is already her highest peaking single since early 2015; “Head Above Water” (song) fell 8-11- in its first two weeks so “Devil” is doing really good so far (7-6-). Plus the competition is huge at the moment, I haven’t loved my Top10-15 that much for a long time and I’m playing some of these songs over and over again. Speaking of it, have you seen its video? I still hope this song may grow on you, you know

                                      What are your thoughts on “Hate Me” compared to the previous three songs? It’s not bad, but she could do much better IMO. Her era has been very confusing so far and it’s a shame nothing really becomes a hit, I’m getting Meghan Trainor vibes from this era so far

                                      I knew you would like that debut for “Find U Again”! And who knows, maybe it will climb further?

                                      Thank you so much

                                        Good to see "Higher Love" debut. Hope it climbs! Whitney's vocals just sound divine on the track. I miss her voice.

                                        Thanks for checking her new song out
                                        And soooo good to hear you’ve immediately enjoyed it! Surprisingly, it took me a few spins to get into “The Upside” and I even labeled it as one of her weakest songs ever at first, but it became a huge grower for me. So it’s nice to hear it actually clicked with you right on the first spin.

                                        “Higher Love” is a good tune and definitely better than expected, because a collaboration like this has the potential to go all wrong. Whitney’s voice is really, really stellar.

The effort you put into the summaries, chart runs, certifications, images, and responding to each individual post is just insane, but I most appreciate the music! Your taste is unique, and it's fun checking your chart out regularly. Sometimes I'll pop in and be too lazy to actually post something, but I always enjoy following this. Cheers to seven more years!
                                        Thank you so, so much for your lovely words, they really mean a lot to me!!

                                                A little bit of weird, the beat sounds both fresh and slightly retro.

                                                  Yeah... not their best, but definitely more interesting than some of their other songs. Unfortunately, I'm getting rather fast over it

                                                    It's very "in your face", so that's not surprising.

                                                    • I knew about new Anna's single through your chart and she is already # 4 here.
                                                      Push her on the top.
                                                      My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).
                                                      In my head I like to imagine LastDreamer in the land of Lithuania right now with a suitcase of simcards, a box of chocolates and a wedding ring. It would be a great base for an epic Eurovision fan fiction.

                                                        True, I guess. Though it's already their second single in a row with that impression. I hope their next song will have a better effect on me / us again.

                                                          Oh, that's good! So do you like that one? I think she's way too underrated. Anyways, not sure if the top spot is possible for "Home"...

                                                            Hopefully you'll find some time to check out some of the ones you'd like to check out, especially Keiino's "Praying" (it's as strong as "Spirit In The Sky" ) but also Astrid S' "The First One" as that one is a big surprise for me and I'm sure you may enjoy it as well. If it doesn't click on the first listen you should give it some more chances as it's been a big grower for me.
                                                            I was on holiday so my response is a bit late

                                                            Oh I totally fell in love with "In My Bed"! I discovered Sabrina through "Almost Love" last year but didn't really follow her. I already forgot where I discovered the new song I guess some list on Spotify.

                                                            I checked out "Praying" and it's cute. I fell like Keiino will be one of those Eurovision acts though that I only listen during the season It's different for me with Mahmood (who delivered an amazing full-fleshed album) and Duncan Laurence (whose winning song is just a masterpiece to me). That third guy's noises of Keiino worked in "Spirit in the Sky" for me but it's disturbing me a bit in the new song

                                                            Astrid S' "The First One" is a nice one. Perhaps it's growing on me

But to be fair, it’s probably similar in every ‘community’? We could talk about the Taylor Swift / “You Need TO Calm Down” situation here; I mean, instead of being happy that she’s supporting us, there were many people from the LGBTQ+ community who tear her down and said it’s all fake etc. Sometimes I’m really wondering why there are so many people like this. So many things could be much easier if all people would pull in the same direction…
                                                              For sure. I realize that there will probably always be disagreements over things like the exact best ways to go about achieving equality, but instead we're often so busy shitting on each other over our favorite Drag Race queen or favorite diva Those kind of "debates" can be fun, of course, but people sometimes get so nasty and personal about it. We fire our anger and hurt at each other, instead of at the people actually making our lives worse.

                                                              No worries, a lot of the characters and plot points were drastically changed or invented just for the movie. The core premise of "Tim's looking for his father with Pikachu and chemical R is involved somehow" is the same between the game and movie, but the people, Pokemon, and clues/mini-cases he encounters along the way are VERY different. His mom's also not dead in the game (just too busy to help look for Dad).

I don’t even like phone calls as even though you’re basically talking to each other, you still miss out a lot from someone’s gestures and something can still come across as completely different than how it was meant.
                                                              **Nod** So you're all about face-to-face interactions, eh? Although those can be hard to arrange (especially as people get older and have more responsibilities/distractions), they're almost always worth the effort. I'm definitely not anti-technology by any means, but I do worry that we're losing out on more human contact these days.

Sometimes it’s very tricky though, as I already experienced situations where I thought I was very empathic and polite, but the other person still got it the wrong way simply because of the (personal) situation she was in. That's why I really respect people who try to go deeper into the communication topic, like studingy communication things and stuff like that. This must be one of the most interesting things about human.
                                                              Ah, I totally feel you there - even when we have the absolute best/kindest intentions, sometimes things still aren't received well by the other person (and at times like that, it can be especially hard not to get frustrated/defensive) The human mind is so complex.

Will be interesting to see if the new “Bad Guy” remix will take the crown or what happens. I wouldn’t be surprised if it stops at 16 weeks as well. But yeah, it was nice to see there weren’t many negative reactions.
                                                              Ugggghhhhhhh It doesn't look like the "Bad Guy" remix did well enough, so 16-17+ weeks at No. 1 for "Old Town Road" are basically guaranteed. I'm not entirely against chart records being broken, I just wish it was happening with a song I actually liked.

It’s really a struggle to get it here sometimes, but I love to use it every now and then. Also, I ‘trained’ myself when it comes to its consummation; like when I started using it I had huge problems going up the next morning, I always ate tons of stuff etc. nowadays I have no problem with going up, don’t eat more than normal etc. because I thought that when I use it, I still need to function normally and my daily life shouldn’t suffer from it.

                                                              Also, speaking of legalization, I would love if the Swiss government legalize it over here. Swit-zerland needs millions of millions of Swiss francs for our retirement system but they have no idea how to get it, so a lot of people are screaming that legalizing it would easily cover that hole through taxes (we already have tobacco taxes for normal cigarettes; Switzerland actually has taxes for EVERYTHING, not sure if it’s the same/similar in the US). A shame that it will take our government another million years to finally get what the people already think.
                                                              Aw, sorry, I don't have much information to offer you there, since I was never the person to actually purchase/obtain it back when I'd try it in college The restriction I mentioned means that no businesses in my city can sell it, but I can't be arrested for possessing/using it after I went and purchased it in a different suburb. It's awesome that you've figured out the right amount/routine so that you can use it without suffering from annoying effects and just go about a normal next day afterwards.

                                                              Ugh, breaking down all the (mostly nonsense) stigma surrounding it is SUCH a struggle. The double-standards with alcohol (which can be FAR more destructive to your body) make all that stigma seem even more ridiculous.

Funny how Akini and you both enjoyed this a lot on your first spins as it took some plays to actually grow on me. It’s the first time since her debut era back in 2013 that she releases two instrumental singles in a row, so maybe one with some lyrics is coming next? Lindsey just confirmed that there will be only two songs with featured artists on her upcoming album, but one of these artists will be Amy Lee and I can't see this not being a single at some point.
                                                              OoOh...I'm definitely excited to hear that collab!

Sabrina is also still very new to me, at least her solo stuff as I know her from some featurings (she was also featured on a Lindsey Stirling Christmas single) but “In My Bed” makes a fantastic impression and I’m getting excited for the whole album now (comes out this Friday).
                                                              I had no idea! The only Lindsey Christmas song I added was "Christmas C'mon," but I'll nab that Sabrina one too for future use.

Plus the competition is huge at the moment, I haven’t loved my Top10-15 that much for a long time and I’m playing some of these songs over and over again. Speaking of it, have you seen its video? I still hope this song may grow on you, you know :)
                                                              Well...like you were saying about all the competition right now, I think this video release from Avril is too little, too late to save the song for me. Mainshow's Kylie countdown has me in the mood to revisit her epic catalog, Ed just dropped his album, I might check out Ingrid Michaelson's latest album after loving some songs I saw on GaGarazzi's chart, the Meghan Trainor Survivor has her on my mind, plus a bunch of other random singles too.

Her era has been very confusing so far and it’s a shame nothing really becomes a hit, I’m getting Meghan Trainor vibes from this era so far
                                                              Ha, yeah, this feels a lot like the messy Treat Yourself era (though at least Ellie's singles have been doing better than poor Meghan's mega-flops) I was pretty into "Hate Me" for the first couple weeks, but really lost interest lately after getting distracted by all the stuff I just mentioned above.

                                                              • This might be a pain to look up, but Lindsey holding strong has me thinking: do you know the longest that an act has occupied your Top 2 in a row?
                                                              • Although his singles haven't had a huge impact on my chart, I love Jax's visuals/aesthetic for this era The Popeye-inspired spinach can for "Harder" is too damn cute!
                                                              • Gun control is such a terrifying issue in the US right now, it's admirable that Madonna's using her platform to draw more attention to the problem and provoke some change (especially with that video).
                                                              • Boo @ nothing from No. 6 Collaborations Project making the main singles chart, even though the album itself debuts at No. 3.
                                                              • Really pleased that Step Back In Time is still inside your Top 5! Not gonna lie, I've been pretty shocked by how well that album's done in Australia and especially the UK. I know Kylie's an icon in those markets, but I didn't think there was THAT much demand for a greatest hits album in 2019 (especially since Kylie's already released several other hits-collections over the years, and "New York City" didn't get much attention at all).

                                                              Yet another chart that shows me the bright side, Marsike!
