Three hits occupy exactly the same places in my November 2017 top forty as they did in October – Burak Yeter featuring Danelle Sandoval stick at number six with “Tuesday”, while Ofenbach remain in the runner-up spot with “Be Mine”. They narrowly fail to overtake Earl’s “Tongue Tied”, which spends a third month in pole position. However, there are more strong challengers in the top ten this month – including the highest of three brand new entries. Last month’s Chartbuster from Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark comes straight in at number five, becoming the twelfth top forty hit for the electronic/synth-pop band from Merseyside, England. It instantly beats the peaks of all of the others except their previous success from 2010 – “Sister Marie Says”, which reached number four – and their very first, “Maid Of Orleans (The Waltz Joan Of Arc)” from 1981. That was caught just behind “A Bunch Of Thyme” by Foster and Allen in the third of its nine months at the top. Camila Cabello is just as close to the top of the UK top forty at the moment with “Havana” – and although that only makes slight progress through the breakers, advancing from 105 to 101 in the extended chart, her earlier collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly, “Bad Things”, climbs six places to number four. It’s one of ten upwardly mobile hits this time – and the Rapid Riser is the former Chartbuster by Axwell ^ Ingrosso, “More Than You Know”. A chart-topper in Austria and Germany, it races up sixteen places to number nine. One of the tracks making room for those new arrivals in the top ten is this month’s fastest faller – after peaking at number five last time, the former Hooverphonic singer Noemie Wolfs unluckily dives eight places to number 13 with “Trying To Pretend”. A total of twenty-four hits declining this month include the longest laster – Marco Z hangs around for a fourteenth appearance with “Fill My Life Up”, sliding two places to 32. So he’s still above the other two new entries, both of whom are from acts making their chart debuts. Kesha, the 30-year-old singer, songwriter and rapper from Los Angeles, California, arrives at 33 with the first single from her new album, “Praying” – while the Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire sneak in at 40 with “Everything Now”, the title track from their fifth studio album. In much the same way as almost everything recorded by Rihanna, it is arguably better without their vocals . . . . .

This month’s trawl through the archives for overlooked gems focuses on the first full year in which my age was in double figures – 1975. I hadn’t even begun to think of buying records back then – but if I had, I may well have been impressed by “I Love To Love” by Tina Charles and “I’m On Fire” by 5,000 Volts – on which Tina also provided the lead vocals ! “Girls Girls Girls” from Sailor, “Music” by John Miles, and the title track from a Chas and Dave album, “One Fing ‘N’ Anuvver” could all belatedly be on their way to the top forty too, in another very poor month for eligible new potential hits. Despite some rather vulgar lyrics, “Back To You”, a recent sales and streaming success for former actor and footballer Louis Tomlinson, who found greatest fame as a member of the boy band One Direction, could make him the second of that group to reach my chart. It also features the 28-year-old American singer, songwriter and producer Bebe Rexha, and the British DJ, record producer, singer, songwriter and remixer Nicholas Gale, better known as Digital Farm Animals - both are looking for a first hit here. However, guaranteed to achieve that next month with the new Chartbuster are an alternative rock and psychedelic pop band, formed in Portland, Oregon back in 2004. Their latest single is their most successful ever in their homeland, and it has also been making progress up the charts of various other countries – even the UK, where its thirteenth week in the top 100 becomes its first inside the top forty. My Record of the Month for November 2017 is Portugal. The Man, and “Feel It Still”.

( "Turn It Into Love" wasn't a single in the UK for Kylie - Hazell Dean charted with it instead - but it was in Japan, maybe other countries too.) "Got To Be Certain" was the most successful in my chart, peaking at number four.
Has Kylie ever successfully made it all the way to #1 in your chart? Sorry if this has been mentioned in the past. :oops:

From your latest chart i'm loving these:

02 02 04 BE MINE Ofenbach ##

I'm loving this, i entered this into the FSC earlier in the year and won. :o :P I really didn't think it would be that popular so i was amazed at how well received the song was.

33 ---- 01 PRAYING Kesha

Better late than ever. :wink: Does this mean you've managed to buy Praying as a physical single or did you buy Kesha's album?

36 32 05 BLACKBIRD Norma John

Aww, i thought it was criminal that this didn't qualify for the final. As much as i loved Portugal's gorgeous ballad, i was rooting more for Finland. :cry:

01 [ 00 ] FEEL IT STILL Portugal. The Man [Chartbuster] ##

Ohh i would love to see Feel it still breakthrough into your main chart. Does this also mean you've bought the single/album? Excellent choice for your record of the month. :D

13 [ 13 ] ...BABY ONE MORE TIME Britney Spears <--- seriously? :lol:
14 [ 16 ] MAMBO No. 5 (A LITTLE BIT OF...) Lou Bega
15 [ 17 ] BLUE (DA BA DEE) Eiffel 65

I'm loving seeing these in your bubblers. Did these never make your chart at the time, they're all from 1999?

Best of the rest:

04 10 03 BAD THINGS Machine Gun Kelly x Camila Cabello
06 06 04 TUESDAY Burak Yeter featuring Danelle Sandoval
07 03 06 CITY LIGHTS Blanche

It's almost a year and a half now since I made the decision to add some previously unlisted much older tracks into the breakers every month, as a result of the declining availability of physical singles and albums and a noticeable reduction in the number of new tracks I felt were good enough to buy at all ! I'm glad that some of these are proving popular with others too. No, none of those UK chart-toppers from 1999 even reached the breakers back then - partly as there were so many other more promising tracks that did. In the month of March 1999, for example, there were twenty-five new breakers - nowadays there might not be many more than this in a whole year.

I see that Ofenbach are now doing well in some countries with a follow-up, "Katchi" - but as "Be Mine" never made it to the UK, I don't suppose that will either . . . . . I have managed to buy a CD single of "Praying" - but the only vinyl release of it seems to be on her album, so of course I also had to buy the LP . . . . . and I currently have the LP and 7" single of "Feel It Still" on order from the USA. If they arrive by the end of this month, it will be eligible for a top ten new entry; if not, it will not be allowed to enter higher than number eleven. However, because it's the record of the month, it will definitely be in the chart somewhere next time ! There doesn't seem to be a CD single available of this one, but it will no doubt be available on a reasonably priced compilation CD at some point.

I did once post a full list of Kylie's breakers - but that was in 2008, and she has had eight more since then, bringing her total to twenty-five! Only five acts have ever had more breakers than this. Here's a fully updated version of that summary of how they all have fared:

18  Jul-2000 251   85 --  #94 of 2000   3211   SPINNING AROUND
19  Apr-2011 379   92 --  #92 of 2010   3328   APHRODITE
20  Aug-2012 395   97 --  #76 of 2012   3484   TIMEBOMB

25  Nov-2010 374  120 --  115 of 2010   4103   GET OUTTA MY WAY
 


So seventeen of her breakers have gone on into the chart . . . . . ten of them reached the top ten, and nine of those are in my top 1000 of all-time ! But no, she has never had a number one, nor even reached the top three - "Got To Be Certain", "If You Were With Me Now" and "All The Lovers" came closest, all peaking at number four.

Well, "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" actually spent four months at number 100 - its full run in the extended chart was

120 112 112 112 108 100 100 100 100 106 109

so it was in the top forty breakers for the first nine of those months (disappearing as soon as it moved down) - but in comparison with many of her other singles, I felt that it was a bit dull and repetitive. Perhaps that is partly why it did so well in the UK ! ( afterthought: actually, I seem to recall that the video was probably very helpful? ) I've just had a look at what was above it in its final month at 100, to see if it might have maybe been a little under-rated at a time when there was a lot of competition . . . . .

CZB wrote:Well, "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" actually spent four months at number 100 - its full run in the extended chart was

120 112 112 112 108 100 100 100 100 106 109

so it was in the top forty breakers for the first nine of those months (disappearing as soon as it moved down) - but in comparison with many of her other singles, I felt that it was a bit dull and repetitive. Perhaps that is partly why it did so well in the UK ! ( afterthought: actually, I seem to recall that the video was probably very helpful? ) I've just had a look at what was above it in its final month at 100, to see if it might have maybe been a little under-rated at a time when there was a lot of competition . . . . .

White flag was amazing, so its great to see Dido did well. Shame it wasn't a UK #1 as this would appear in my top 100 countdown had it qualified.

And already it's time for the first retro chart of November - from the year in which I began full time work, at the age of 21. I used timer-switches to record the radio broadcasts of the chart shows of various European countries while I was out - and these were the hits I was enjoying thirty-two years ago, as we approached the end of 1985.....

Thanks again, Benny - with the possible exception of "Spanish Eddie", I think all of those others are still getting significant radio airplay in the UK and continental Europe thirty-two years later ! :D
