Selena has been killing it this year. I think she's had some of her best work! Fetish is certainly top 10 material.Tansike wrote:Love "Fetish", so great to see that one making your Top20 this week. Also really happy to see "Bad Liar" in the Top10
Kinda surprised (in a good way!) to see ZZ Ward's "Help Me Mama" here. It's cool, and her album is actually really good. A shame she's pretty unknown
Thank you so much for checking in :-*JakeP wrote:Hi cheapthrills
Not heard your top 2 so will add to my playlist of songs to check out.
Ohh happy birthday, hope you had a great day. Ahh and the eclipse too? What was it like? I've never experienced anything like it but from i've seen on tv, it looked really cool. You made a playlist and didn't include Total eclipse of the heart? I thought that was so funny seeing that song going to #1 on America's iTunes.
Great to see Dua Lipa climbing to a new peak. Love Feel it still and Feels so i'm happy to see those two songs here as well.

Four years ago this week, Blurred Lines wrapped up a monster run at the top, with an 8th week at #1. I loved singing along to this when it was huge, even if the lyrics are questionable. While it spent several more weeks at #1 than any other song that year, it ended up in the #2 spot for the year behind "Get Lucky," which was sitting at #10 this week in 2013. Avicii was about to slay, and Gaga could never quite overcome it to get the #1 spot for herself. Applause would be Gaga's last top two appearance until The Cure went to #1 two months ago.
This was truly the week of Pharrell - besides Get Lucky and Blurred Lines, he was in the top ten being featured on Nelly's "Get Like Me," and he was charting in his own "Happy," a song that peaked on my chart in the July of 2013, about seven months before it topped Billboard's chart!
Yes, that week in 2013 was amazing - Get Lucky ended up beating out Blurred Lines by just one point! I don't keep a running count on points during the year because I like to be surprised, and that was definitely unexpected! Wake Me Up also made my top 10 for the year. Had I held off on Happy, I'm sure it would have hit #1 as wellJakeP wrote:[
So...i never did get round to checking out your top 2! I will give them a listen shortly.
Incredible for Taylor though! I think yours is another chart where songs don't tend to enter high so that's some first week impact. I have to admit i really wasn't sure what to make of the song last week hence why it wasn't an instant hit that makes me chart after just 24 hours. The music video has pretty much made the song come to life. Regardless of what people think about Taylor Swift, she has released the best music video of 2017. I will be surprised if anyone else can top this by the end of the year. Sorry Swish swish...
I have to comment on that 2013 commentary because even though i only started compiling my own chart in August 2013 it seems we both liked many of the same songs. I'm sure that Get lucky would've been my #1 of the year with Blurred lines second and Wake me up third. They were easily my three defining songs of the year. However, Happy only started to become a hit in the UK in late 2013 so it eventually peaked at #5 in my chart in January 2014.
Yesss Cardi She will likely stay in the top five again, though it' starting to be one of the most competitive top 10s I've had in a long time, so I don't know how long she can last there. The top three have been locked for three weeks straight now.Tansike wrote:YES at "Bodak Yellow" becoming a Top5 hit on your charts
Well, i have to admit that i'm already slowly getting over it, simply because there are currently so many other great songs out at the moment, but it's nice to see her being so successful
Also liking "New Rules", "Woman", "Look What You Made Me Do", "Feels", "Havana" and "Fetish"
...oh, and "Bang Bang" on the Retro list.
She's been killing it on my chart the last 18 months. I just love her voice and she brings a much needed sound I think is absent from music right now.stevyy wrote:yass, stan for Dua. I like her album.
Yessss The top five is shaping it to be competitive since Cardi, Taylor, and Dua are all moving up on tomorrow's chart. Dragons are pretty much done for now; hopefully they will have an improved chart peak with their next single.Mainshow wrote:+1stevyy wrote:yass, stan for Dua. I like her album.
But Taylor, Cardi B & Imagine Dragons are also great choices!
I was pretty late to the party for both Niall and Charlie. Niall at leastwas floating around just below the top 20 for awhile, but I completely slept on the Charlie song - he's probably peaked everywhere but my chart.Mainshow wrote:"New Rules" <3 - I also like the great update for "Slow Hands" and "Attention" - Both songs are great!
