Oh! I missed the comments - How exciting to have comments on my chart
Thriller/JakeP, Janelle really delivered. It's funny because I listened to Django Jane first (which I also like) and thought oh, OK, this sounds like something I would expect from Janelle, and then I heard Make Me Feel, and I was instantly in love. Usually songs are not instant for me like that, but I knew this was special.
Jake, yes, it's really rare for a song to debut at #1, and this was the longest period ever. Usually, I like to see if a song will grow on me or if it burns easily before putting it at #1, but there was no such issue with Janelle.
Our top 5 is really in synch right now - the top five is exceedingly competitive outside of the #1, but I expect Pray For Me to linger around there for awhile. I don't see Janelle being toppled very soon though.
Yesss, I knew UKmix would approve of that retro chart. I think she ended up being #2 for that year. Lose Yourself came in at the last minute to take #1.
And Crazy Frog was a very unique situation. It debuted at #1 and then was out of the chart the next week. It's kind of annoying it shares space with those other three iconic acts.
OK, posting my next chart.
