Thanks! Great to hear from you again! Well, the #5 is Chelsea Lankes – Paralyzed, the same song that was in the top 3 late last year when you commented a lot so I think you know that one too . And although "Hurt" will slip below #30 this week I agree it's a beautiful song.Speedy wrote:Can't say else than what a great single chart this week. Listened to several songs. Not one was bad. Love your top 4. Not yet listened to 5, but in your top 4 is Lady Antebellum and Alltimelow. Really great songs for both bands. I must say that other song from Lady Antebellum in your chart "Hurt" is also a very beautiful song.
Helene had very limited success on my chart so far, but that will change this week! Agreed on Samantha Jade's voice; too bad none of the songs she has released in recent years has come close to her "Turn Around" for me; quite shocking how that song is now almost ten years old!Speedy wrote:And ofcourse I like the song form Helene Fischer. And as top on the icecream there's is Samantha Jade. Great powerful voice she has. Really fan of her.
Thanks for reminding me about "Rääkimata lood"! It hasn't appeared in my chart since February but should have a very good chance of returning before it becomes ineligible in October.Speedy wrote:Still listen to that nice song from Grete Paia. Nice new Avatar (is it new). Which artist is that or is it personal?
Yeah, I still listen to many songs from those albums almost daily or at least a few times per week!Speedy wrote:Nice to see Wolkenfrei and the other schlager is still doing great in your album chart.
At the very beginning of the week this was definitely a strong possibility, but then Maia's song really stepped forward again and towards the end of the week "Ground Control" also started to sound a bit old unfortunately.MrRager wrote:I love Ground Control. Was hoping it would be no.1!
Good question... It's somewhat similar to what happened with "Final Song" last year in the sense that I did listen to it early and thought it was at least decent. But then I kind of forgot about it; it got "lost in the crowd" and I had no idea I would like it a lot more when I eventually heard it again. The good thing is that it's very unlikely that a song that I have entered in my database gets forgotten indefinitely because periodically I go through it and re-listen to those songs that didn't get success but was also not "written off". I'm not sure if in this case it mattered that song became a hit on official charts. I did enjoy the video when I watched it now so that could have been a factor, plus I did see the song a few times on the UKMixParade chart.MrRager wrote:Nice climb for Computer Boy and Re Entry for Michelle Branch!
Why has it taken this long for Julia Michaels to enter? I'm real sick of that song now.
If dropped out last week after this chart run: 3-1-2-2-3-3-5-7-8-12-17. So it fell quickly once it left the top 10, which is quite common. It's definitely possible it will return at some point though, especially if she releases something new.MrRager wrote:What happened to The Apple? When did it leave!
Yeah, it surprised me too how much I like "Schon lang nicht mehr getanzt" and that song is very much behind the album's position. I can't easily (or even "legally" due to how I hide play counts for new songs until the end of the year) check it now but it feels like the album would have landed around #5 if it wasn't for that song, and lower if I had only listened to the regular edition.Tansike wrote:Wow, what a 'shocking' debut for Helene
Good for her though, the album is much better than i expected.
What do you think about "Herzbeben"? It's clearly my favorite song on the record.
Nah, "Crowded Room" was never really my favourite, it's pretty random how that song ended up among the bubblers and not any of the other songs. I think "Sublime" is my favourite now and although I can't say for sure I think there is a good chance the album will climb a few positions tomorrow.Tansike wrote:Also nice entries for the new releases by Lorde and Christina Grimmie, but i hope the latter will rise into the Top10 next week. It's really good IMO. "Crowded Room" seems to be your favorite so far, right? That's a nice pick - mine would be "Steady Love".
Ballads are doing great on my chart this year! I'm almost a bit worried that the top 30-50 of the YEC will be too heavy on those slower songs; I should try and find more great (non-annoying ) uptempo songs the coming months.Tansike wrote:Love that entry for "If I Wasn't Your Daughter" by Lena, what a great ballad.
Also glad to see Alma still smashing that way
Last year? That would be impressive! Maybe it was #21 for several weeks though? I didn't see it on Tansike's chart either btw.MrRager wrote:I think Issues would have made my chart for a couple of weeks.. It was probably last year when I stopped posting for a few months I guess. I did like it but never loved it. Did you like her new song?
The Poppy song is really growing on me
Woops it came out this year! It should have made my chart. I remember playing it at the same time as that Marian Hill song "Down" Maybe it was #21 if it didn't appear on my charts or maybe I didn't post the week i was playing it.Magnus wrote:Last year?

Not really, "Uh Huh" has done nothing for me so far. I don't find it even remotely similar to "Issues" so I don't know what she was thinking releasing it as the follow-up. I'm looking forward to an album though.
Thanks for commenting! I'm glad you think so too!heppolo wrote:That's cute (as usual)8 (NE) Poppy – Let's Make a Video
Ha ha, yeah I never would have guessed a month ago that I would start liking it so much. And even though it will lose #1 this week it's not certain that it will quickly drop back down to #27 . I actually listened to it on repeat again for a while yesterday.MrRager wrote:Dead at Julia Michaels!
Yeah, it's just an EP, and the song in Norwegian (which is a cover apparently; never heard the original though) and "Just for One Night" aren't included. It's still a very solid EP though!MrRager wrote:I need to check out the Tracy Irve song and the Astrid S album! Well i take it she has an album out..Oh nevermind I just saw the EP in your album chart.
Yeah, it did, although not in a huge way, and unfortunately it will slip back below #30 this week.MrRager wrote:Love that Haerts song! Did it grow on you? It must have been slowly moving up your chart.
Ha ha! Nah, luckily I backed off from playing it too much so I didn't really get sick of it. It just "recalibrated itself" to a #10 (-ish) song instead of a near-#1.MrRager wrote:Nice to see you ddidn't get that sick of Ground Control. Fro your comment the other week I thought it was gonna drop like Britney's second week album sales.
Not really surpised by this comment, tbh . It's a great album, although it's my least played Avril album.MrRager wrote:But the best damn thing about this week is THE BEST DAMN THING
I'm glad you like them! Especially the Samantha Harvey one; it will end up much higher tomorrow!MrRager wrote:Listened to some of the songs I didn't know and really liked them Still need to check out Astrid's EP though!
Yeah, I really love that song. It's for sure my most played song so far this year but probably "only" 90% or so certain to become #1 in the end, with still nearly half a year to go.MrRager wrote:That No.1 is totally mashing your charts. Must be a dead cert for no.1 of the year.
Not sure exactly what this means. I don't really believe in God so I don't pray in the traditional sense, and I don't post much stuff on the Internet so I'm not into this whole hashtag thing... It's definitely one of the albums I'm looking forward the most to though. Just hope it won't sound like "Bad Girl" and "Hello Kitty" .MrRager wrote:Nice for Avril hanging in there Did you pray for AL6?
You're welcome! Yeah, definitely a shame they didn't stay together longer and released more albums.Speedy wrote:Thanks for your repsonse on my comments. Nice to hear that you also listen on weekly bases to music from Wolkenfrei. I also listen that quite regularly. Still a shame they didn't made more albums.
Very glad you like my #1! It's Danish though, not Swedish (but don't worry, you're not the first one to make that mistake...). For some reason, songs in Danish and Norwegian have tended to do better than songs in Swedish on my chart the past few years, although before that I had some huge favourites in Swedish. Yeah, Samantha Harvey and Astrid are both great and will have a very good week when the chart is updated tomorrow!Speedy wrote:Great chart this week also. Listened while typing this song to your number one. Really great swedish song. Also nice entree for Samantha Harvey. Like the song and video. Also a good week for Astrid S. (also very good sänger).
She didn't lose any positions; I had only just started listening to the EP and the songs didn't quite make the top 30 (maybe you confused the bubblers list with the dropouts list?). She has been doing amazing so far this week though so things are going to look very different tomorrow! Completely agree about her voice and while I liked her before (she charted with a couple of songs in 2015) the new EP is definitely a big step forward. Hm, haven't really thought about it, but off the top of my head I can't think of any German country artists so maybe you're right! I don't hear too many similarities in the sound though...Speedy wrote:Too bad Kate Todd lost a lot of positions in your single chart. Good to see she's at least with her EP in your Album Chart. Nice voice, good music. Love that kind of countrymusic. Is is odd to say Country is the American Schlagermusic or otherwise Schlager is the german country music (sounds logical).
Interesting, I didn't know Margaret Berger had been doing that sort of thing (not sure I had even heard of her before 2013). I'm not really sold on Poppy's YouTube videos though (watched a couple after MrRager "recommended" her channel) and actually found her songs (last year's EP) in Spotify before I knew about the other stuff.heppolo wrote:Poppy is essentially something that Margaret Berger was doing 10 years ago, yet with much more commitment and the full story mode.
