"I'm Alive" is quite underrated, it's one of the few singles by Celine Dion that peaked higher in Germany (# 4) than in the UK (# 17).

"Underneath Your Clothes" is one of Shakira's better songs and "In My Arms" isn't bad either. "Time After Time" is a classic though and "I'm Alive" is one of my favourite Céline songs.
Aretha Franklin was an angel. Her voice helped lift our spirits and at times gave us the soundtrack to cope with our pain.

Many thanks again for the comments! :D

For me, it was maybe scarier that some of the people featured in the programme eventually came to resemble their puppet more and more!

Ireland had some very good Eurovision songs in both the best ESC decades (70s and 80s)
Sheeba have the lowest of fifteen Eurovision entries in the top 400 (including three winners) - but none of the others were from Ireland.

Johnny Logan's "What's Another Year", Liam Reilly with "Somewhere In Europe" and Luv-Bug "You Can Count On Me" are my other favourite Irish entries - but they're all some distance away from the top 400, at 1091, 1185 and 1205 respectively.

"I'm Alive" is quite underrated, it's one of the few singles by Celine Dion that peaked higher in Germany (# 4) than in the UK (# 17).
I had forgotten that this only just made the top twenty in the UK - the last of her hits to do so! Just three more followed into the bottom half of the UK top forty - and one of those, "Taking Chances", was not even played in the Radio One chart show when it was a new entry. That was not long after the dire combination of Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates took over, and I gave up listening "live" after almost three decades.

JSparksFan wrote:"Time After Time" is a classic...
It's Cyndi Lauper's only entry in the top 400, although "She Bop" isn't too far away, at 715. Just nine places below that is a dance remake of "Time After Time", by Novaspace - and another. more traditional, version of the same song also briefly entered my chart for Everything But The Girl. That's way, way down at 2283 !

Tiger wrote:345 01 09 1993 08 LIVING IN DANGER Ace of Base
350 03 09 2011 08 LEVELS Avicii
Both of these Swedish acts also had a hit very close to the top 400 - one of Ace of Base's number ones from my chart, "Never Gonna Say Im Sorry", is at 401, while under another alias, Tim Berg, Avicii is at 413 with "Bromance". "Levels" is his highest entry - but Ace of Base will be back a few more times, starting tomorrow.....

In two and a half hours' time, the countdown continues - and a little more progress will be made than expected, because a couple of tracks have to be skipped in the next hour. They're from the file marked "too obscure to be available anywhere on YouTube" !

Had to endure this for a whole summer, was massive in my country of birth. I presume the bigger one is still to come?

364 02 10 2001 11 UNDERNEATH YOUR CLOTHES Shakira

Just a childish comment here, not a fan of the song but certainly wouldn't mind seeing what's underneath her clothes...

362 01 09 2001 10 HEAVEN DJ
Sammy and Yanou featuring Do

It's ok but the original is one of my favourite 80s songs

354 05 10 2007 07 IN MY ARMS Kylie Minogue

Not bad, but not in my top 20 KM

347 02 07 1984 15 TIME AFTER TIME Cyndi Lauper

Not bad at all.

345 01 09 1993 08 LIVING IN DANGER Ace of Base

Very underrated, this was like the 6th single off their debut album, wasn't it?

343 01 13 2010 07 WE NO SPEAK AMERICANO Yolanda Be Cool.....

Loved this.

342 11 10 1983 22 TURALURALURALU (ICH MACH BUBU.....) Trio

I like Trio. Is the big one higher up?

338 02 12 1978 06 YOU NEEDED ME Anne Murray

Totally not expected this, very dull, as was the #1 cover.

334 09 12 2001 08 I'M ALIVE Celine Dion

One of her best.

Wikipedia says the seventh - I think this must be counting "Waiting For Magic", which was only a single in Scandinavia? But "Living In Danger" was certainly one of the later ones - there were a few different versions of the "Happy Nation" album, and I'm fairly sure that track wasn't on the LP I got in the UK.....

Not quite / not at all !

O-Zone reached the same peak in my chart with "Dragostea Din Tei" as with the follow up - but that lands at 654 overall. They were competing against another version of the song in several countries, however - it was that other version that went to number one in my top forty, and will be appearing here quite a bit later on.

Trio, meanwhile, were up against several other versions of "Da Da Da" - and theirs is right down at 2177. They were much higher with "Anna Letmeinletmeout" ( 624 ) - but my favourite from them is coming up.....right now, in this next update!

I love all these 3 songs, but Maxi's solo "Do I Dream" is the one from my Irish favourites.
I like early France Gall songs [1963-1966], maybe also something from 70s [for simple "Musique"], but not her songs from 80s.

Some real European classics here like "Ti Sento" and "Ella, Elle L'A"! I also love both Kate Ryan's "Désenchantée" (more than the original version by Mylène Farmer) and Sylver's "Turn The Tide". :D

328 01 09 2004 11 SCHNAPPI, Das Kleine KROKODILE Joy Gruttmann

Ugh.

327 01 09 2009 06 REMEDY Little Boots

Brilliant pop song.

325 06 07 1986 21 TI SENTO / I FEEL YOU Matia Bazar

Nice to see all these European hits unknown to anyone here. Vacanze Romane was also good and a reasonably big hit on the continent.

324 06 08 1983 20 HEARTS ARE TRUMP / HERZ IST TRUMPF Trio

Yeah, good song. Neue Deutsche Welle ruled!

323 06 09 1985 15 BEN Marti Webb

I am committed to check all your links, I presume this is the MJ song about a rat?

321 04 09 1983 19 MERRY WE WILL BE Berdien Stenberg

I imagine Rondo Russo will be even higher...

320 03 11 1987 18 ELLA, ELLE L'A France Gall

Classy French pop.

319 02 07 1981 09 MAID OF ORLEANS (The Waltz...) OMD

I love OMD but I always found this rather overrated.

318 02 09 2011 06 SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW Gotye / Kimbra

Possibly the best song of 2012, certainly one of the best two charttoppers (with Fun).

[ I should have thought about this before - but, to give me time later to get the weekly UKmixParade prepared and posted at midnight as usual, Saturday updates of my top 400 will be three hours earlier than those during the rest of the week! ]






NothingFails wrote:Yay for Gotye, OMD and Little Boots
I had the feeling that those would be the ones that almost everyone would highlight from this section!

Gotye has had just as much difficulty following up his massive world-wide success in my chart as just about everywhere! He's otherwise only at 3007 with "Eyes Wide Open".

Little Boots is also in the top 1000 at 752 with "Love Kills". The original of that one, from Freddie Mercury, is yet another that only just missed out, at 418.

My other favourites from OMD are the much more recent "Sister Marie Says" ( 559 ) and "Secret" ( 593 ).

France Gall's Eurovision winner from 1965 is at 3871 - but she's one of many acts who have taken part in the contest over the years that feature here with quite different songs! Another from this section was, of course, Matia Bazar.



potojr wrote:323 06 09 1985 15 BEN Marti Webb

It's a UK hit cover version of the Michael Jackson song. His version is at 3731.....while yet another recording of it is at 4340. That's by none other than a very, very young Silvy Melody!

Mylene Farmer's original only makes it to 3822 - and there's also a cover version of "Turn The Tide" right down at 3063 for Manian featuring Aila.

Absolutely - not surprisingly, it will be the highest of seven tracks in the top 400 from the fabulous female flautist. And she has five more lower down in the top 1000!







Now.....tonight's update includes two entirely different songs with the same title, and ten former number ones - several of them from a decade that has been somewhat under-represented so far, the 1990's!

Simple but stunning song. A rare Eurohit that was big here too.

307 01 07 1996 05 TO ANOTHER GALAXY Tokyo Ghetto Pussy

Surely one of the coolest band names ever. NH this but liked Everybody On The Floor.

That's another of just the nine tracks in the top 200 that weren't released on vinyl. Much bigger in continental Europe, it sneaked into the UK top 40 when used in an advertising campaign.

Lucky77 wrote:One nice surprise here: Black Box Recorder :wink:
"The Facts Of Life" was # 2 in my personal weekly charts.
And it reached the top twenty in the UK! I was also impressed with a couple of their follow-ups: "The Art Of Driving" ( 1236 ) and "These Are The Things" ( 1371 ). Plus a solo single by their singer Sarah Nixey, "When I'm Here With You" / "Ici Avec Toi" ( 646 ).

Tiger wrote:301 01 10 2008 07 ELLA, ELLE L'A Kate Ryan
The Belgian singer has had eleven top twenty hits in my chart during the past ten years - this being the highest ranking. "Desenchantee" was the only other one to make the top 400, but all of the others are less than a thousand places away! The next nearest were "Voyage Voyage" ( 433 ), "Only If I" ( 445 ), "Alive" ( 563 ) and "La Promesse / The Promise You Made" ( 600 ).

Benny wrote:"The Sign" is my favourite one this time.
That's one of six number ones in my chart from Ace Of Base - but three of them didn't make it into the top 400. My two particular favourites from them appear later on - just two places apart!

The main driving force behind this hit also had six number ones in my chart - this being one of two credited to "Tokyo Ghetto Pussy", the other four being "Jam And Spoon Featuring Plavka". Their most well-known success is the one that is still to come.....

potojr wrote:298 11 13 2001 07 I'M IN HEAVEN (WHEN YOU KISS ME) ATC

No, they're both on the way as well! But not quite yet.....





Now.....there are several instances of the same song appearing here in more than one version, but this is the only time that two are side by side! And YouTube can't provide the second-highest of the twenty-two successes of one of Ireland's longest-running hit-makers - but everything else tonight is hopefully present and correct. This hour begins with someone whose 86th birthday was very recently, and who is apparently one of the thirty oldest still living performers of at least one solo hit in the UK.....

"Somebody That I Used To Know" is the only song I'm familiar with in it's batch. As overplayed, overexposed, and overrated as it's become, I still quite like it. Ooh, how great to see "New Soul" here! I remember when my friend introduced me to it a few years back. It's such a cute song. :)
Aretha Franklin was an angel. Her voice helped lift our spirits and at times gave us the soundtrack to cope with our pain.

Are you from the Netherlands or you only like old Dutch music so much?

That Kato song is great!

I believe i have commented on all the songs in your top 400 as you've counted down your biggest hits from every year. There's no point telling you i like something twice. :wink: I'll comment when you get to the very high numbers.

297 07 14 1977 04 CAPTAIN BEAKY Keith Michell

Heard this once, did not see the fuss.

294 04 10 2007 04 BABY WHEN THE LIGHT David Guetta and Cozi

OK-ish dance track

291 03 12 1982 11 PUTTIN' ON THE RITZ Taco

Bloody awesome remake of the 30s standard!

289 02 10 2009 04 F------ YOU Lily Allen

Not my thing, I managed to see Lily live when she somehow opened for Muse at Wembley.

288 01 07 1985 14 ONLY LOVE Nana Mouskouri

Huge European hit, but again not something I'd buy.

287 01 13 1998 04 LA PRIMAVERA Sash!

Unlike this. Loved every one of his #2s.

285 04 08 1989 12 LAMBADA Kaoma
284 04 08 1989 11 LAMBADA Carioca

NH Carioca, but loved the one that made it big. Still nice to listen to after 23 years.

283 04 10 2000 13 DANCE WITH ME Debelah Morgan

Nicely sampling Hernando's Hideaway, the 50s standard by Johnston Brothers...

282 02 08 1991 11 TICKET TO HEAVEN Dire Straits

Would have never had you down as a DS fan, is it an one-off or are their bigger hits on the way?

I like all these. Never heard that Carioca version of "Lambada".

Thanks again for the comments! :D

No - although in the pre-internet days I once made a shopping trip over there to buy quite a few Dutch records that were impossible to get in the UK!

When I was at University, I had Thursday and Friday afternoons free - and I became a regular listener to the Tros Top 50 (with Ferry Maat) and the Nederlandse Top 40 (with Lex Harding) on Hilversum-3 radio, surprisingly clear on medium wave in the UK for most of the year back then.

That is the only Hepie and Hepie record I ever bought (albeit in original and remix, it was a hit twice in Holland).

Another single is now being promoted - as "Suits You Well" surprisingly wasn't a sales success for her in Belgium. However, its debut at number 15 in my top forty this month places it at 2142 in the all-time list - and, of course, it will move up in the months ahead!

They all missed the top 400 - I have "Encore Une Fois" at 2374, "Stay" at 1552, "Adelante" at 1715, "Ecuador" at 1799 and "Mysterious Times" at 473. But "La Primavera" is the first of three others reaching the top ten in the UK that I liked even more!

Their bigger hits are - well, nowhere, really. This one - a minor hit in Holland - is the highest of only four tracks I've liked from them. The others are "Why Worry" (460), "Walk Of Life" (827) and "So Far Away" (2379).

I thought it had only been (slightly) popular in France (peaking at 22 there).....but I have just this moment noticed that www.ultratop.be has added top fifty charts from years prior to when the Ultratop began - with the Carioca track debuting in this one at 42 ( and something very, very much better coming in at 35 ! ), then climbing to a number 40 peak the following week. I will have to explore that new archive more thoroughly in the new year.....a very quick comparison suggests that these are charts not related to the BRT top 30. Interesting!

Hopefully there may be more you know in tonight's new segment, coming up right now. It's another in which there is more from the current century than from the previous one.....
