There were only two number ones in my chart in the first half of 2008 - Regi and Bart Peeters with "A-A-A-Anthem" and September with "Cry For You", for three months each. But there have now been four more in as many months, as Kate Ryan, Ida Engberg and Mark'Oh are followed by Coldplay. "Viva La Vida", last month's highest new entry, climbs six places to the top, and becomes the 168th number one in over twenty-nine years of my monthly charts - but it's only the fifth that also reached number one in the UK singles chart!

Just six other hits climb the chart this time - Yves LaRock continue to "Rise Up" after five months in the top forty; former Chartbuster "One World, One Dream" by Sylver is now at number 11; and last month's Rapid Riser, "Wish You Were Here" by Jan Wayne and Scarlet, is up another six places to number 4. And there are upward moves for the other three new entries from last month - Madonna is up ten places to number 30 with "Give It 2 Me", Milk Inc. climb five notches to number 15 with "Forever", and Tocadisco have this month's Rapid Riser, as "Morumbi" races up twenty-one places to number 10.

Twenty-four-year-old Welsh-born singer [Aimee Ann] Duffy has the highest new entry at number 12 with "Warwick Avenue", and already has a second breaker with "Stepping Stone". Both tracks are from her chart-topping album "Rockferry". Twenty-nine-year-old California-born Sara Bareilles also has a new entry in the top 40 and a new breaker with tracks from her album "Little Voice". "Love Song" is in at number 40, while the follow up "Bottle It Up" - which, bizarrely, contains the word "Love" considerably more times in its lyrics! - may well be next in line. And another young female singer, Katie Melua, now has her fifth consecutive hit on my chart, as "If The Lights Go Out" goes in at number 37.

The other three of this month's six new entries are by acts making their chart debuts. Eric Prydz is new at number 29 with his current instrumental smash "Pjanoo", while Baracuda and Axel Coon arrive at number 17 and number 32 respectively with cover versions of former top three hits by Lara Fabian and Beverley Craven - "I Will Love Again" and "Promise Me". Meanwhile, there are four non-movers, and twenty-three songs moving down - with the Fastest Faller and Longest Laster landing side by side. David Guetta's "Delirious" has always remained below his previous hit "Baby When The Light", and now falls eleven places to number 38 - while Bob Sinclar's more recent release, "Together", drops out of the chart, but his previous one "What I Want" remains in for a twelfth month, down seven places at number 39.

Two former hits return to the breakers this month - Faith Hill's "There You'll Be", back in the top ten in the UK on downloads only, and a new version of "I Begin To Wonder" by Jean Claude Ades. And a former breaker by Amy MacDonald, "Mr Rock and Roll", is back to make another challenge for the chart - alongside her massive continental hit "This Is The Life", which makes a major move towards my top 40. Brand new breakers arrive for Basshunter, Rosenstolz, Lasgo, Laurent Wolf and Ian Carey - but it was an incredibly closely-contested two-horse race for Chartbuster this month, as two excellent new singles ultimately debuted side by side inside the top 100, at numbers 71 and 72. Narrowly losing out, but having one of the highest ever positions for the second-highest new breaker, is producer and songwriter Steve Mac with "Paddy's Revenge". It would be surprising indeed if this mostly-instrumental Irish reel was not a new entry in the top 40 next month. But guaranteed a place there is a fifteen-year-old actress born in Nashville, Tennessee - who is already also a singer/somgwriter. Her most well-known role is as "Hannah Montana" in the Disney televison series of the same name, and her current UK single is my Record Of The Month for October 2008. It's Miley Cyrus, with "See You Again".

Oh Lord, Steve Mac's "Paddy's Revenge" is the most irritating, annoying track I've had the misfortune to hear in a long, long time, and further, it's clearly a reel, not a jig.

Can you tell me please - how do you discover music? Even if your monthly chart was a weekly chart, some of the tracks seem to hang around far longer than would seem "normal", judging by others' charts on here. Also, some tracks debut many months after release. I'm not being cheeky - just genuinely curious as to how you discover, and consume, music, as it seems to be so different to anyone else on this forum.

Very good questions - so I fear this is going to be a very long, very full answer.......

Apart from the Eurovision Song Contest, which I've watched and followed for nearly as long, my main source of discovering new music for over thirty years has been the singles chart shows, on radio and television, of various Western European countries.

I first listened to the Sunday evening chart show on Radio 1 in early 1978, a few months before it expanded to a top 40. And I tuned in every week until early 2003, when Wes Butters took over and the format and presentation began to decline. Luckily, it was around this time that I discovered the superior BFBS version on Monday nights, which remained until earlier this year. Since then, as I find the level of verbal diarrhoea of the latest presenters just too unacceptably bad, I've switched to the television versions - initially The Hits, now VH1/TMF or others. (Now presented by Scott Mills, or stand-in Mark Goodier!!)

I started to listen to the weekly Irish chart show at the beginning of 1979, then the Europarade in early 1983, and the Dutch charts from a few months later. And by the late 1980s my weekly routine also included the radio chart shows of Austria and Germany - then Belgium and France had replaced Ireland and Holland, which I was no longer able to receive, in the early 1990s.

But, from the mid 1990s and the arrival of satellite television and radio, I was able to hear the Dutch charts on Radio 538 and Happy-RTL, and the German charts on various radio and television channels. Eventually, with the switch to Sky Digital, I was able to hear the Irish chart show again eery week as well.

Currently, via the internet and television, I listen to/watch several programmes devoted to the charts of these countries every week:

- UK (usually on Monday evenings, or later repeats)

- Ireland (Sunday afternoons)

- Belgium (Saturday mornings, but available to listen to again at any time - and also on TMF on Sundays and Wednesdays)

- Holland (Friday afternoons - but also the excellent "Non Stop 40", permanently available in a three-hour loop)

- Germany (Thursday and Friday evenings on VIVA TV)

- Denmark (Friday afternoons, repeated on Sunday mornings).

Virtually everything in my current chart and breakers has been in one or more of these national charts. However, I also review the new releases schedules in various places - especially the suppliers I regularly use for CD and vinyl purchases. They usually have options to listen to clips of those that sound promising - such as new versions of old songs I previously liked, or new material from acts that have impressed me previously. That's how I discovered all of these:

03 01 04 I DON'T LIKE MONDAYS Mark'Oh
04 10 03 WISH YOU WERE HERE Jan Wayne with Scarlet
09 09 08 JUST BREATHE Lizzy Pattinson
16 15 04 SHE'S GOT THAT LIGHT Straight Flush
26 18 09 MUSIC BOX DANCER DJ Schwede
31 28 09 LARGER THAN LIFE Regi, Wout and Caren Meynen
32 ---- 01 PROMISE ME Axel Coon


Reading threads on UKMix - and, occasionally, other forums - has also alerted me to some other tracks I might not otherwise have become aware of. A particularly good example is:

B14 [ 17 ] BRUISED WATER Chicane Vs Natasha Bedingfield

.......which I've never heard on any radio or television show!!

However, despite all this, I'm finding that I am hearing fewer tracks that I like enough to want to buy than previously. Looking back at my breakers charts of a period selected at random - early 1995 - there were around 12-18 new breakers every month. Nowadays it's more like half as many. So, as tracks are remaining as breakers for longer (up to a maximum of twelve months) there are some that I will gradually like more and more, and they will ultimately reach my chart. Similarly, with fewer new hits than there used to be (in the mid-1980s, there were almost 100 hits a year. By the mid-1990s, the average was more like 70. Now, it's descending towards 50!) the older tracks are dropping down my chart more slowly than they otherwise might have done.

A further way in which I continue to regularly hear my hits and breakers long after radio stations have stopped playing them is that at least once a month, for nearly thirty years, I've set aside a few hours to play my own charts, in a similar format to the radio chart shows - although it has varied over the years. (I've wondered if other contributors to these forums do the same, on a weekly basis or whatever!) Originally, everything was played on vinyl. Later, after I first bought a CD player and started to buy in this format too, typically I played alternate tracks on vinyl and on CD. More recently, it has been CDs only. And, in only the last few months, I've switched almost entirely to Youtube, for a monthly five-hour countdown - starting with the previous month's Chartbuster and number one, then all the breakers, 40->1, then all the hits 40->1, with the new Chartbuster again just before the top 20 and at the end. 84 tracks, with an average length of around three and a half minutes, fit comfortably into five hours - although I'm currently finding that there are quite a few featured tracks that are closer to the three-minute mark (and those by Fixkes and Ishtar are much shorter even than this!) - so I'm also able to fit in a few number ones from years gone by, which I'm now including links for in these postings. This is partly why I changed the format of my postings here to include all the Youtube links - although it was partly inspired also by one or more of your threads elsewhere in this forum!

[ Incidentally, it was only in seeking a Youtube link for Makem and Clancy's "Red Is The Rose" earlier this month that I belatedly discovered that Tommy Makem died last year. This wasn't mentioned in the Irish chart thread - but I wonder if any of his back catalogue reappeared on the Irish albums chart as a result? I must look baok and check at some point. ]

Finally, there is a further reason that my chart may seem more out-of-sync with others - but this is one that I might be able to address in the months ahead. I compile each new chart as near to the beginning of the month as possible. But, when I first posted one here, it was nearly the end of a month - so essentially I've remained almost a month behind ever since. I did mean to make an effort to catch up - that's partly why I posted this most recent chart nearly a week earlier than usual. Perhaps, by catching up by a further week or so each month, I should be able to post more up-to-date charts from early 2009?

Therefore the new breakers from this latest one were the tracks I heard for the first time and/or decided that I liked enough to want to buy/did buy, or at least ordered - during September:

B01 [ 00 ] SEE YOU AGAIN Miley Cyrus
B28 [ 00 ] RED LIGHT Ian Carey
B29 [ 00 ] WASH MY WORLD Laurent Wolf
B34 [ 00 ] BOTTLE IT UP Sara Bareilles
B35 [ 00 ] STEPPING STONE Duffy
B36 [ 00 ] OUT OF MY MIND Lasgo
B39 [ 00 ] GIB MIR SONNE Rosenstolz
B40 [ 00 ] ANGEL IN THE NIGHT Basshunter


And, of course.......

B04 [ 00 ] PADDY'S REVENGE Steve Mac

I only referred to this as a "jig" because that is how it was described in various other internet sources, presumably incorrectly. I've now amended it to "reel" accordingly. I must admit, I already knew of your views on this track - having read your succinct and forceful analysis on a thread in the Dance forum. Without even going back to check, I can remember that.......

You wrote:This is total muck.
Well, one man's total muck is another's....... whatever. Sorry, but I really do like this one - a lot!! And I'm sure it's going to be a very high new entry in my November chart!!!

A very, very interesting reply, thank you, and thanks for taking the time to reply.

It was enjoyable to hear Scott Mills filling in for Fearne and Reggie today on the Radio 1 Top 40. I used to listen to the Top 40 each Sunday on BBC Radio 1 back in the Bruno Brookes/Mark Goodier days - these days it really has been devalued, and I rarely listen. I wish I had access to VH1 these days for the full Top 40 countdown on video.

As for Steve Mac - well, I just can't stand it...but I won't say any more!

I had always planned to post a little feature on that very question - so here it is!!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Number ones in the UK that were also number ones in CZB's chart!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. THE TIDE IS HIGH Blondie [January 1981]

Image

UK Top 40: 05 01 01 02 02 07 14 20 28 [1980/1981]

CZB: 23 08 01 14 30

Only the sixth number one in my chart, and one that came and went rather quickly - it currently ranks at only 895th position in my all-time chart. A later remake by Atomic Kitten stalled in the breakers, peaking at number 98.......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2. THE POWER OF LOVE Jennifer Rush [April/May 1986]

Image

UK Top 40: 36 15 02 01 01 01 01 01 02 04 05 10 27 21 22 35 33 35 [1985/1986]

CZB: 15 06 06 09 12 01 01 02 06 13 35

A so-called "remix" running to about four and a half minutes was the UK release - but other countries got a superior six-minute version on their 7" singles, and Spain had also a Spanish-language version. And it was these other versions that were mainly responsible for the track eventually topping my chart, after originally seeming to peak at number 6.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3. THE FINAL COUNTDOWN Europe [October/November 1986]

Image

UK Top 40: 35 14 05 02 01 01 03 03 03 04 14 32 [1986/1987] / 39 40 36 [1999/2000]

CZB: 22 01 01 09 18 31 31 28 20 20 39

Although it was a shorter edit that was released as a single in all territories, the longer album version always seems to be the one I hear played on the radio these days. Having originally heard this in the Dutch charts earlier in the year, I was among those responsible for it reaching the dizzy heights of number 100 in its week of release in the UK. Some time later, it topped the UK chart - after it had spent two months as my number one!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4. HEAVEN DJ Sammy and Yanou featuring Do [September 2002]

Image

UK Top 40: 01 02 03 07 11 12 20 26 20 24 31 38 36 [2002/2003]

CZB: 24 04 03 05 03 01 11 17 30

I was ahead of the UK with this one too, as we were one of the last countries to discover the magic of this remake of an old Bryan Adams hit - which I remembered, but never liked! It wasn't until early November 2002 that "Heaven" was released here, and became an instant chart-topper.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5. VIVA LA VIDA Coldplay [October 2008]

Image

UK Top 40: 01 02 07 11 14 16 18 14 10 11 13 13 17 25 27 32 29 39 [2008]

CZB: 07 01

Despite no physical release, the UK was well ahead of the rest of the world on this one - but it was still riding high in various continental charts when it reached number one in mine. Despite being only the second Coldplay single I've ever liked!!

Very, very interesting!

I was going to say "All classic singles" but I think using the word classic for DJ Sammy would be stretching the word just a little bit too far. Which is not to day I don't like the track - I do, I bought the single (the Australian edition).

It's hard to believe though that only 5 tracks have been to number one in both charts!

Incidentally, do you know if any other country's chart fares better as regards the crossover rate of its Number Ones with your chart?

EDIT #1: So despite my accusations in my earlier post, you do occasionally pre-empt the UK chart!

EDIT #2: When you say something like "only the second Coldplay track I liked", it naturally begs the question - what was the other Coldplay track?

I'm going to hazard a guess with "Clocks"...

I think I already mentioned that in one of the earlier months' commentaries - no, it's "In My Place".

The temptation to do some research and discover the answer to this proved impossible to resist. As I suspected, all the countries for which I hold enough chart information can at least match the UK's crossover rate, and most can beat it!

There are only two non-movers on this month's chart - Coldplay remain at number one with "Viva La Vida", and although Jan Wayne and Scarlet may have dropped out of the race to replace it as "Wish You Were Here" sticks at number four, there are a few other contenders that might well take over next time. Steve Mac has the highest of six new entries, as "Paddy's Revenge" crashes in at number two. Excluding the number two from my very first chart back in 1979, this is only the eleventh time there has been a new entry in the runner-up position - but although the four most recent hits entering there did go on to reach number one (not necessarily straight away), the other six didn't! Just below that, last month's highest new entry by Duffy, "Warwick Avenue", is one of nine climbers this month, up nine places to number three. And, for the second month in a row, the Rapid Riser is an instrumental climbing twenty-one places - Eric Prydz vaults from 29 to 8 with "Pjanoo". Other movers include Tocadisco with last month's Rapid Riser "Morumbi", up another four places to number 6; Madonna, now at number 20 and up ten places for the second month in a row with "Give It 2 Me"; and Sara Bareilles, up fifteen places to number 25 with "Love Song".

There are much smaller climbs for the other new entries from last month - including Katie Melua, up only three places to number 34 with "If The Lights Go Out". However, she is also still around with "If You Were A Sailboat" - one of twenty-three hits moving down, and now both the fastest faller and the longest laster, dipping twelve places to number 39, as the former Chartbuster completes a year in the top forty. Meanwhile, last month's Chartbuster, "See You Again" by Miley Cyrus, is the second highest new entry at number 16 - and there are four more new hits this month. As "What I Want" drops out, Bob Sinclar maintains a continuous presence on the chart, as "What A Wonderful World", co-performed with chart newcomers Axwell and Ron Carroll, arrives at number 19;Tocadisco double their tally of hits as "Streetgirls", with vocals by Meral Al-Mer, is new at number 37; and Amy MacDonald has two new entries - "Mr Rock and Roll" at 35 and "This Is The Life" at 40. Although simultaneous new entries is quite a rare occurrence, it is by no means unique - and was previously achieved most recently by Sylver in February 2007.

Two former hits return to the breakers - Wamdue Project with "King Of My Castle" and Sash with "Encore Une Fois". While the former is there as the result of another new "2009" remix, the latter is back largely because a successful new mash-up has reminded me of how much better the track was when "Raindrop"-free! And, although there are healthy climbs towards the top forty for Dave Darell, Ian Carey, Sara Bareilles, Laurent Wolf and Basshunter, October 2008 has been another rather poor month for new music, with just five new breakers. Three of them are by acts that have previously reached the top three in my chart - and Melee have done so most recently with "Built To Last", now followed up with "Imitation". Three years ago, Armin van Buuren reached number two with "Serenity" - his second breaker "Shivers", failed to chart, but his third, "Sail", also made the top ten. Now, on his fourth breaker, "In And Out Of Love", he is joined by vocalist Sharon den Adel, of Within Temptation. And the first of three Chartbusters by Belgian dance act Milk Inc., "No Angel", also peaked at number two. They narrowly miss out on a fourth Chartbuster with new single "Race" - which, the second most promising release of the month, looks likely to give them another hit on my chart, even though it unfortunately seems set to bring to an end their unbroken run of top ten successes in their home country.

The two other new breakers this time are both by acts that have never previously impressed me, although I was at least vaguely aware of some of their previous work - and they could not be much more different. 30-year-old Hounslow-born M.I.A. (Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam) has a potential future hit with "Paper Planes", almost entirely on the strength of its melody and sound effects. I don't think I understand a single word of its lyrics - and I'm not even sure that I want to! But it's a much more uplifting piece that is the guaranteed new entry in the December chart for a 22-year-old singer-songwriter. Her first recordings were back in 2002, and she went on with two later songs to have top ten hits in countries beyond her homeland - which (I discovered only this month!) - is Norway. Although I fear it is unlikely that her latest single will travel as far as the UK, it is now also spreading through the charts of continental Europe. My Record of the Month for November 2008 is Maria Mena, with "All This Time (The Pick-Me-Up Song)".

Possibly - although it would only be accurate for a month, as forty hits (and up to forty breakers) move up slightly, as thousands of others slide down to make room. But perhaps I could post a full list at some point. Maybe when I reach 30 years of monthly charts, in 2009.......

I also thought about posting yearly charts based on my all-time ranking, which is derived by combining all the monthly charts - as those aren't going to change much, if at all, once all releases from the year have dropped out of the current chart....... Actually, I think I might aim to make a start on those a bit sooner - perhaps next month, when I'm a little less busy.

So this month's extra feature is:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

New entries at number two in CZB's chart!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


1. YOU GOTTA BE A HUSTLER IF YOU WANNA GET ON Sue Wilkinson [August 1980]

Image

Chart run: 02 02 06 08 18 22 17 19 17 25

This censored version reached number 25 in the UK in 1980, although the somewhat different original lyrics can be heard on the album "Looking For Cover". Sadly, the performer has since died of cancer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2. TAKE AWAY THE HEARTACHES / MEINE KLEINE FREIHEIT Nicole [August 1982]

Image

Chart run: 02 02 02 06 06 06 12 22 38

Eight of Germany's only Eurovision winner's singles peaked at number two on my chart, and this one doesn't seem to be available on Youtube! So instead one of the others can be seen - amusingly demonstrating what can happen when you allow a little girl to come up on stage and give you a flower while you're performing.......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3. DAME UN BESO Raffaella Carra [March 1983]

Image

Chart run: 02 02 08 22

One of Italy's best known presenters and performers spent thirty-three months in my chart with her only UK hit, which was recently featured in the "Doctor Who" episode "Midnight". This later release debuted high, but didn't stay around for long.......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4. STAR TREKKIN' The Firm [July 1987]

Image

Chart run: 02 02 05 22 26 35 39 45

This novelty UK chart-topper looked as if it was also likely to get to number one on my chart, for an act that had previously reached my top five with "Arthur Daley ('E's Alright)" - but it wasn't to be.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5. THE YOUNG DOCTORS The Executives [July 1989]

Image

Chart run: 02 02 03 06 09 19 26 40

Several soap opera themes have made it into my chart - and this one, which entered and peaked at number two several years after the 1,396th and final episode had aired, was one of my shortest hits ever, running to just sixty seconds.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

6. NUTCRACKER Berdien Stenberg [March 1990]

Image

Chart run: 02 05 08 14 18 24 35

Another instrumental that debuted in the runner-up position and never climbed, this was one of fourteen top five hits on my chart for the fabulous Dutch flautist who later made a career change to....... local government. I suppose that, even in Holland, knocking Michael Jackson off the top of the singles charts with a 200-year-old classical piece is something you can only do once!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

7. ONLY THE ONES WE LOVE Tanita Tikaram [January 1991]

Image

Chart run: 02 01 01 01 01 02 12 17 25 37 45 48

This was the fourth, and the longest-lasting, number one on my chart for the German-born, Basingstoke-based singer-songwriter whose only major UK hit was her first, "Good Tradition". Unfortunately, by this time her singles were typically only spending a week or two at the bottom end of the top 75, at best......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

8. VOICES Ann Lee [December 1999]

Image

Chart run: 02 01 02 01 05 17

This follow-up to the hugely successful debut single for the Sheffield-born singer, "Two Times", replaced it at number one in my chart, but didn't really come anywhere close to matching its popularity with the rest of the world!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

9. J'EN AI MARRE Alizee [August 2003]

Image

Chart run: 02 01 01 01 01 04 05 09 17 27 33 39

Having already reached number one in my chart in 2001 with her UK top ten hit "Moi Lolita", this follow-up by Corsica's most well-known singer was the second highest new entry of the month, but went on to become one of my favourite hits of this decade.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

10. UN MONDE PARFAIT Ilona Mitrecey [August 2005]

Image

Chart run: 02 02 02 01 01 01 08 19 27 34 37 39 40

This young French singer took a while to improve on her high entry position - but eventually the first of three hits from her debut album got there. It also reached number one in her home country, and had some impressive chart-runs in other territories too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

11. PADDY'S REVENGE Steve Mac [November 2008]

Image

Chart run: 02 .......?

So will this most recent high newcomer peak at its entry position, like the first six of its predecessors, or climb to number one like the other four? The answer will be revealed here in a week or two!!

There are four non-movers this month, including the whole of the top three. A high climber last time, Duffy sticks at number three with "Warwick Avenue"; last month's highest new entry, "Paddy's Revenge" by Steve Mac, fails to improve on its number two debut; and it's a third month at the top for Coldplay's "Viva La Vida". However, most of this month's six new entries could well be challengers next time, as five of them are in the top twenty. The highest is a third top ten hit for Armin Van Buuren - "In And Out of Love" follows "Serenity" and "Sail", and makes one of the biggest moves ever in the extended chart, up 112 places to enter the top forty at number nine. Four places lower, it's the third appearance in my chart of the instrumental "Children", which previously reached the top ten for Robert Miles in 1996 and 4 Clubbers in 2002 - now it has been reinterpreted by Dave Darell. Just above that at number 12, a high entry for last month's Chartbuster, Maria Mena's's "All This Time (The Pick-Me-Up Song) - while, much further down the chart, a low entry for Ian Carey, whose "Red Light" is at number 40. These three artists are all making their chart debut this month.

"Race" may have ended a long run of consecutive top ten hits in Belgium for Milk Inc, but it enters my chart at number 10 - one place above their other current hit "Forever". And, although it has completely failed to match the success of its predecessor, the new single by Sara Bareilles also arrives one place higher in my chart. "Bottle It Up" is new at 20, while "Love Song" is one of twelve climbers, up another four places to number 21 in its third month. Also rebounding four places, from 32 to 28, is this month's longest laster - "Larger Than Life", which has now made eleven appearances for Regi, Wout and Caren Meynen, despite never being officially released as a single. Originally from the album "Registrated", it can now also be seen and heard on the new CD/DVD set "Regi Live In Antwerp". Meanwhile, three hits share the title of "Rapid Riser" this month by climbing five places each - Madonna at 15 with "Give It 2 Me", Ishtar at 16 with "O Julissi Na Jalini", and Amy MacDonald at 30 with "Mr Rock and Roll". And eighteen records move down, the fastest faller being Kylie Minogue with "In My Arms", diving from 18 to 38.

A former hit by the Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl and a former breaker by the Bellamy Brothers return to the top 40 breakers, having also recently returned to the UK Top 40 - and there are nine brand new potential future hits. Rhianna previously reached number 22 with "Unfaithful", and T.I. previously reached number 101 with "Why You Wanna" - both primarily on the strength of their instrumental versions. Now they are together on new breaker "Live Your Life", also in primarily due to its instrumental version. Yves Larock and Dave Darell may be on course to follow up their current hits, the Freeloaders and Alex C featuring Y-ass are also in with a good chance of following up their very recent successes, and first-time chart appearances could be on the way for Mgmt and Rene Ablaze presents Fallen Skies. Although "Miles Away" has unfortunately wrecked Madonna's run of consecutive UK top 20 hits, it is my second highest new breaker this month. And the brand new Chartbuster, guaranteed to be in next month's top forty, is the Danish dance act consisting of Lina Rafn and Paw Lagermann. They previously reached number five in my chart with "From Paris To Berlin" and number 33 with "Self Control". The third hit for Infernal will be December 2008's Record of the Month - "Whenever You Need Me".

I'm delighted to see Viva la Vida hasn't succumbed to the onslaught of Paddy's Revenge!

I'm at a loss to understand why Ishtar are still rising on your chart though!

Perhaps you can tell me - why are the Bellamy Brothers back in the UK charts?

I can - it has been used (well, sixty seconds of it) in a distinctive commercial for Barclaycard:

In hindsight, I felt that perhaps it had fallen a little further than it should have done last month - so it is possibly just briefly regaining a bit of lost ground!







I wrote: Armin Van Buuren - "In And Out of Love"....makes one of the biggest moves ever in the extended chart, up 112 places to enter the top forty at number nine.
So, this month's extra feature is a three-part countdown of the thirty singles that have somehow managed to climb at least a hundred places up my extended chart into my top forty!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

30 - LAY ALL YOUR LOVE ON ME Sylver [Up 100 places to number 22]

Image

Chart run: 122 22 03 02 05 06 13 24 30 32 34 35 36 37 38 43 47 55 57 63 69 76 86 93 100

The Belgian duo's take on one of Abba's songs was one of their biggest hits on my chart, matching the peak of their earlier release and one-and-only UK hit, "Turn The Tide".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

29 - KOMODO Mauro Picotto [Up 100 places to number 19]

Image

Chart run: 119 19 10 05 07 07 17 22 27 34 38 48 52 55 67 71 77 79 82 87

A mostly instrumental track which charted remarkably high in the UK despite not being stocked by the now-almost-defunct Woolworths. But not quite as high as it reached on my chart! The follow-up, "Proximus", was also in my top forty for six of the ten months "Komodo" spent there.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

28 - TAMBOURIN Berdien Stenberg [Up 100 places to number 6]

Image

Chart run: 106 06 03 02 02 08 16 27 29 43 47 61 71 72 79 87

The Dutch flautist reached my top five with several tracks from her 1983 album - including this one.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

27 - C'EST LES VACANCES Ilona Mitrecey [Up 100 places to number 5]

Image

Chart run: 105 05 04 09 14 26 33 43 47 50 53 59 63 70 76 79 81 88

The young French singer's second single crashed into my top ten with almost as big a climb as its predecessor - but didn't stay there for anywhere near as long.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

26 - BEAM ME UP - THE FIVE YEAR MISSION Edelweiss [Up 101 places to number 12]

Image

Chart run: 113 12 07 19 31 89 124

This Austrian act had topped my chart with "Starship Edelweiss", but their next voyage around a similar theme seemed to crash-land after a promising take-off.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

25 - TONIGHT THE STREETS ARE OURS Richard Hawley [Up 102 places to number 18]

Image

Chart run: 120 18 12 19 26 29 37 45 46 49 57 60 63 67 74 84

The only track in this list which, after such a major climb, didn't ultimately reach my top ten - and which wasn't even played by the chart show presenters JK and Joel when it was a new entry in the UK at number 40!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

24 - I WANNA LOVE YOU FOREVER Jessica Simpson [Up 102 places to number 18]

Image

Chart run: 120 18 05 05 12 25 46 49 56 76 83 95

Two further breakers failed to light up my chart in the way this first release did for the American singer and actress. While the original ballad hit version was responsible for its appearance in the breakers, its chart success was mainly due to a dance remix.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

23 - CARTOON HEROES Aqua [Up 103 places to number 16]

Image

Chart run: 119 16 07 07 07 11 16 27 41 43 51 73 80 91

One of eight singles that peaked at number seven in my chart for the Danish-Norwegian dance-pop group who, in a rarely-equalled feat, took all of their first three UK releases to number one. This later one was from their second album "Aquarius".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

22 - KISS (WHEN THE SUN DON'T SHINE) Vengaboys [Up 103 places to number 15]

Image

Chart run: 118 15 05 05 04 05 19 41 48 50 56 58 59 65 67 70 86

These Dutch-based Eurodancers had several major hits in the UK and in my chart - this one making the biggest climb, and spending four months in my top ten.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

21 - UN MONDE PARFAIT Ilona Mitrecey [Up 103 places to number 2]

Image

105 02 02 02 01 01 01 08 19 27 34 37 39 40 42 46 50 51 55 63 64 66 73 74 79 82 88

And completing the first section of this countdown, the second appearance of the French singer, with the song that spread the furthest around Europe for her, and topped my chart for three months.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
