Thanks for commenting, Tansike - I will try to submit a vote for the favourite personal charts this week. I hadn't heard of Jasper Steverlinck's collaboration with Within Temptation - he is probably best known in his Belgian homeland for a cover version of David Bowie's "Life On Mars" which was a massive hit there in 2003. It wasn't really until last year that he resumed his solo work, having done all kinds of other things in between (and, it seems, being quite ill for a while) and returned to the top ten with "Here's To You".









Now - this was a rather better month for new music than most others this year. It's been a while since there have been as many high debuts in the breakers, which look very likely to advance into the top forty in the months ahead. Here's my final monthly chart of 2018 :

The only non-mover in my last monthly chart of 2018 is the number one – so it’s a third month at the top for Hooverphonic, with “Romantic”. The rest of the top five shift around slightly – the former number one from Angele, “Je Veux Tes Yeux”, is one of twenty-four hits moving down, as it slides from two to five, while the three tracks just below that last time each advance one place. “Happy Now” goes from five to four for Zedd and Elley Duhe, “Dished (Male Stripper)” by Purple Disco Machine rises from four to three, and one of the biggest European hits of 2018 reaches the runner-up spot for Dynoro and Gigi D’Agostino – “In My Mind”. Five of the other eight climbers this month jointly share the title of Rapid Riser, each of them moving up five places. Those are the “Pink Panther Theme” from Henry Mancini, “Halt Dich Fest” by Nicole, “Flugzeuge Im Bauch” from Oli P, “Bum Bum Tam Tam” by DJ Fioti and “Als Je Zingt” from Dana Winner – now respectively at six, 18, 26, 30 and 33. Two tracks share the less desirable honour of being the fastest fallers this time, as Janieck and Sennek dive six places each in their fourth appearances, landing at 36 and 38 with “Does It Matter” and “A Matter Of Time” – while the Gilde Duo remain in my top forty with “Mühle Im Schwarzwald”. Falling just one place to number 34, this month’s longest laster is only the sixth instrumental ever to stay in the chart for as many as eighteen months ! It remains to be seen whether any of this month’s new entries could go on to have such longevity – and three of them have certainly taken a long time to become hits. Both “Pretender Got My Heart” and “Wonderful Dream (Holidays Are Coming)” were released in 2001, but only arrive now at 35 and 37 for Alisha’s Attic and the late Melanie Thornton – while it was forty years ago that Olivia Newton-John was near or at the top of the charts all over Europe with “Hopelessly Devoted To You”. That now sneaks in at number forty – whereas last month’s Chartbuster from Fisher comes straight in at number 13. Could “Losing It” be a future number one ?

As the festive season approaches once again, my search for previously under-rated singles to belatedly include in the breakers concentrates this time on this particular time of the year. Coldplay, Dustin The Turkey, Audrey Hannah, Papermoon, Blümchen and Gabriella Cilmi could all finally be chartbound with “Christmas Lights”, “Christmas Tree”, “It’s December (And I’ll Be Missing You)”, “On The Day Before Christmas”, “Unterm Weihnachtsbaum” and “Warm This Winter”. And it has been a good month for promising new releases. Sofi Tukker, the New York City duo consisting of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern, could have a future hit with “Best Friend”, featuring Nervo, the Knocks and Ailsa Ueno – while Robyn has returned after a long absence with “Missing U”. It’s the sixth breaker for the 39-year-old from Stockholm, Sweden – and four of the other five have gone on into the top forty, the most successful being “Indestructible”. Robin Schulz has also had four previous successes – collaborating with different artists of all of them, but always reaching the top five. The vocals on his latest single, “Speechless”, are provided by 20-year-old Erika Sirola from Finland. Could this go on to become as successful as his works with Francesco Yates, Ilsey, Jasmine Thompson and Lilly Wood And The Prick ? Hooverphonic have followed up “Romantic” with “Uptight”, which could easily double their presence in the chart next time by becoming their twelfth hit – while it would be surprising indeed if Clean Bandit with Marina and Luis Fonsi failed to enter the first top forty of 2019 with “Baby”. Arriving at number 69 in the extended chart, and very narrowly missing out on being this month’s Chartbuster, the collaboration would be the first success for the forty-year-old Puerto Rican who achieved worldwide chart domination with “Despacito”, and the seventh for both the electronic, dance and classical music band from Cambridge, England and the 33-year-old singer/songwriter from Brynmawr, Wales. But guaranteed a space there is a 24-year-old singer from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The success of her first single, released earlier this year, was only in the Romanian airplay chart, where it reached number 38 – but her latest quickly raced to the top of the sales and streaming charts of all the Scandinavian countries. It’s now at number one in Germany and Belgium, and appears to be on its way there in several other places too. My Record of the Month for December 2018 is Ava Max, and “Sweet But Psycho”.

It's not easy to find good current songs, but two of the new breakers are not bad at all, namely 'Sweet Like Psycho' and 'Baby'. :P

Thanks again, Benny. I think it's starting to look as if "Baby" isn't going to achieve the success it deserves, at least in the UK - while "Sweet But Psycho" is going from strength to strength everywhere. It was even the best-seller in the UK last week, but could not be number one overall because Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" is so strong on streaming . . . . .







Now, back to a time when the music in the charts of the UK and continental Europe was so much better than it is in 2018. Thirty-three years ago, these were my favourites:

Thanks again, Benny - "Maria Magdalena" didn't improve on its entry position of number four in my chart, but scored well in its three months there and four further months descending - it's currently at 404 on my overall ranking. In the UK, it was released twice as a single, but performed miserably both times - going no higher than 91, then 87 in the top 100 here . . . . .

. . . . . although, of course, it did extremely well in continental Europe - number one in several countries.

Now, (a little later than) half way through the month, time to revisit a year from earlier this century when I was finding a lot to like in the charts of the UK and continental Europe. Happily, I was also able to buy them very easily and cheaply on CD singles - plus, as often as not, a little less easily and more expensively on vinyl! Who would have thought back then that the former format would have virtually disappeared by 2018, along with the quality of almost all the most listened-to music? This is what I purchased and enjoyed twelve years ago . . . . .

Thanks again, Benny . . . . .

Did Céline Dion's version of 'It's All Coming Back...' enter your charts?
It also reached the breakers without going on to enter the top forty - falling seven places shorter than the Meat Loaf version, with a number 77 peak. There were a lot of her other releases that I preferred ;

I like 11 out of the 15 songs - add 'A New Day Has Come' and the list of my favourite Celine Dion songs would be complete.

I suspect that if an "ultimate" Celine Dion compilation LP was released, the line-up of tracks would be closer to yours than mine. I recently bought such releases by Katie Melua and Amy MacDonald, and while both had most of my favourites, several were missing - and a number of others that I wouldn't have chosen at all were there instead!






Now, the final trip back in time of 2018 - and it's a long way back, to my first ever Christmas chart. I was fifteen years old, only listening to the charts of the UK and Ireland, and these were my favourites thirty-nine years ago :

Thanks, Benny - Boney M had six simultaneous appearances in some of my earliest charts, and I don't think any other act matched that since then.







Now, it's 2019 - and, to everyone,

HAPPY NEW YEAR !

As another new year begins, there’s a new number one on my chart – the 236th in total, which means that the average length of time each one has spent there is currently exactly two months. Several number ones have been instrumentals – and this latest one very nearly is too, with only its title repeated multiple times over a throbbing bass-aided beat. November 2018’s Chartbuster and December 2018’s highest new entry now becomes January 2019’s Rapid Riser, racing up twelve places to pole position – Fisher, with “Losing It”. None of the other eight climbers this month appear in a top five that is increasingly dominated by dance music – as all three non-movers are there. Zedd and Elley Duhe stay at four with “Happy Now”, Purple Disco Machine remain at three with “Dished (Male Stripper), while Dynoro and Gigi D’Agostino are still in the runner-up spot with “In My Mind”. That was the most successful release of 2018 in Western Europe – whereas the most popular single in the UK was “One Kiss” by Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa. After a slight decline last time, this now moves up six places to number ten – while the current UK chart-topper crashes in five spots higher, the most impressive of six brand new entries. “Sweet But Psycho” was last month’s Chartbuster for 24-year-old Ava Max – but it’s not the only debut inside the top ten this time, as Clean Bandit with Marina and Luis Fonsi enter at number eight with “Baby”. Not far below them, at number twelve, is the twelfth hit for the Belgian group Hooverphonic, “Uptight” – while Swedish singer/songwriter Robyn returns after a long absence with the first single from her new album, “Honey”. “Missing U” is in at 29 – and another Scandinavian singer is the latest guest artist employed by Robin Schulz. “Speechless”, sung by Erika Sirola from Finland, is his fifth success in my top forty – that arrives at number 35. And, ten years after its original release, which gave it a possibly unique completely symmetrical five-week stay in the UK’s top 75, “Warm This Winter” sneaks in at number 40 for Gabriella Cilmi. That means that this month’s chart is both topped and tailed by Australian performers – but many other nationalities are represented in between, especially among the twenty-two hits moving downwards. They include Pink from America, whose former Chartbuster “Beautiful Trauma” is the fastest faller, diving from 24 to 36 – and the Dutch Gilde Duo, who slide five places to 39 in their nineteenth month with the longest laster, “Muhle Im Schwarzwald”.

Over many, many years, I have spent many, many happy hours listening to the chart shows of Western Europe – covering the current hit parades of various countries and, increasingly, those revisiting the countdowns from the past. This month’s search for undiscovered – and some already discovered – potential chart entries focuses on the instrumentals regularly used in those shows from the two countries whose chart shows I have heard more of for many decades than any others – the UK and the Netherlands. So arriving in the top forty breakers for the first time are chart show theme tunes used by Simon Bates and Tony Blackburn – “Brother”by CCS and “Firepower” from Gato Barbieri. Returning are those used later on by Richard Skinner, Bruno Brookes and Mark GoodierRockall’s “Mezzoforte” and the Propellerheads’ “Crash”. And Henry Mancini’s “Theme from Cade’s County” and A-ha’s “The Living Daylights”, two of the most frequently used pieces of background music from the Dutch Top 40 chart shows, are joined by the original introductory and closing theme – “Blue Tango” by Sid Ramin. Any or all of those could be in my top forty in the months ahead – but this month’s Chartbuster, guaranteed to be there next time, is the one and only impressive current release I have heard recently. And I suspect that much of its appeal to me rests on its similarities with a song that topped my chart two and a half years ago for First Aid Kit, “My Silver Lining” ! It’s the first release I have ever liked that is credited to a 43-year-old London-born musician and producer – although he has had one major worldwide smash, and has been involved with the production of many successful singles, several of which have reached my chart. His new release is sung by a 26-year old from Franklin, Tennessee, who has had two previous hits, both former Chartbusters – “See You Again” and “Who Owns My Heart”. My Record of the Month for January 2019 is Mark Ronson featuring Miley Cyrus, and “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart”.

It looks as if the Ava Max song is going to be massive everywhere - while this latest Clean Bandit one seems to have underperformed in the UK, and might struggle elsewhere too. Although it has raced up to a new peak in the UK top twenty now that the Christmas congestion has cleared, it can only be a matter of time until the ACR rules curtail its success . . . . .

Both hits, however, look sure to climb in my chart next month !

Top10 wrote:The same to you. Mc Fioti is still here, interesting.
Curiously, although it is quite some time since its release, I'm still hearing that one much more on the radio than most more recent tracks in my chart. "Bum Bum Tam Tam" could quite well continue to rise next month too.

heppolo wrote:04 [ 05 ] LA FORZA Elina Nechayeva - Elina's still charting? Impressive.
Or, to put it another way, still not quite charting - as it remains in the breakers, not yet making it through into the main chart, the top forty. As indicated by its position, it's now one of the closest breakers to the top forty - and It may yet get there, or it may not. A maximum of twelve appearances in the breakers is allowed before it is automatically excluded - this is "only" its sixth !




Here's hoping that, for those of us for whom 2018 hasn't been a particularly good year for new music, 2019 might at least bring a slight improvement . . . . .

Now, the first retro chart for this month - and back to a time when the charts of western Europe were filled with so many more varied, interesting, unusual and pleasant singles than they are now. Thirty years ago, I was twenty four, I joined the professional body that still charges me something every year to keep some of the letters after my name (even though I'm pretty much fully retired now) and was enjoying these hits. The highest new entry name-checked a vast number of well-known UK television personalities of the time - but it was another debut, from a former topless model, that was on the way to number one in my monthly chart in early 1989 . . . . .

Half way through January already - and time to revisit more fully the not-so-distant past, the year before I first joined UKMix !
