  • Magnus's Top 100 Songs of 2019: #5–3

    I know I said I wouldn't make a thread for my 2019 YEC, but I changed my mind! My top songs of 2019 really deserve more than just being interspersed on the DEC.

    The Top 100 starts here.

    Top 10 here.

    2019 was a weak year in terms of the number of songs that charted on my weekly chart; only 124 songs released in 2019 charted during the year, down from 163 songs in 2018, to the second lowest ever (after 110 in 2010). As recently as 2016 there were 251 new songs charting.

    The total number of new songs I entered into my database (which all got at least one play) went in the other direction though, up from the record low (since 2000) 351 in 2018 to 797 songs. That is still not great compared to the record years (in 2015 2,260 new songs were added) but only the 5th lowest since 2000.

    I will post the positions 51-100 in simple text format and then do a detailed countdown of the top 50. I plan to do this in parallel with the DEC thread in such a way that the top songs from 2019 are revealed here first, which means that the top 50 here will move quicker than the DEC top 100.

    Languages, Countries and Artist Categories

    Some quick statistics for the upcoming Top 100:

    100 songs by 63 artists from 15 countries, singing in 7 different languages.

    Languages:
    English: 59
    Russian: 29
    Polish: 5
    German: 4
    Lithuanian: 1
    Slovene: 1
    Ukrainian: 1

    Compared to 2018 there are actually four more songs in English this year! The big difference is that while last year there were a lot of songs in French and German, now it is Russian that is the very clear second biggest language, and with Polish as number three. And not one single song this time in French, and still no song in any of the Scandinavian languages since 2017.

    Artist Categories:
    55 female solo artists
    3 male solo artists
    5 other (groups, duos etc.)

    Artist Countries:
    USA: 23
    Russia: 17
    Canada: 5
    Poland: 3
    Australia: 2
    Germany: 2
    Norway: 2
    Ukraine: 2
    Austria: 1
    Finland: 1
    Lithuania: 1
    Moldova: 1
    Slovenia: 1
    Switzerland: 1
    UK: 1

    No real surprises here given the languages above.

                  Thanks for commenting! Yeah, I also find most of her songs mediocre, but "После нас" ("After us") is a nice ballad, and there is another of her songs higher up that I really like a lot. She was also close to reaching the DEC Top 500 with "Never Forget" from 2014 (#531). (And I guess the fact that she charted before with songs in English is the reason I write her name like that and not Лена Катина).

                          Yeah, I agree. I think there are at least 14 other songs by her that I clearly like more.

                              I discovered this song through your chart.

                                  Can't promise anything of course, but this is likely to happen! And I would be very surprised if there aren't more than one Lithuanian song in the 2020's DEC Top 500! (Assuming I live and keep my interest in music that long.)

                                          Ah, yeah of course. I switched from 2020 to the full decade between the first and second sentence there... Maybe my point was that anything can happen in a single year, but for the next ten years there is an extremely high probability that I will listen much more to songs in Lithuanian than in the previous decade.

                                            The previous decade (2000s) was a golden age of Lithuanian pop.
                                            Maybe one day I will represent a big countdown with my favourite songs from Lithuanian acts.
                                            YVA deserved a special tribute with all songs ranking, like I did for ABBA in 2019 year.
