TONY'S HITS CHART 23rd MARCH 2018

1 2 Sarah Reeves - Feel The Waters
VIDEO (7 weeks; PEAK)
I finally had to concede! Possibly record of the year so far.

2 1 Underoath - On My Teeth VIDEO (language) (4 weeks; peak #1)
3 4 Rae Morris - Lower The Tone AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (9 weeks; PEAK)
4 3 Kitten - I Did It! VIDEO (6 weeks; peak #1)
5 7 Taylor Swift - Delicate VIDEO (3 weeks; PEAK)
6 11 CuckooLander - Mercury VIDEO / Lone Pine Drive (EP_02) (2 weeks; PEAK)
7 9 Chvrches with Matt Berninger - My Enemy AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (4 weeks; PEAK)
8 16 The Slow Readers Club - You Opened Up My Heart AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (2 weeks; PEAK)
9 5 Andrew WK - Ever Again (8 weeks; peak #3)
10 6 Andrew WK - Music Is Worth Living For (8 weeks; peak #1)
11 15 Wolf Alice - Sadboy (3 weeks; PEAK)
12 NE Riah - Prom VIDEO
Synth female. Bit like Shura.

13 8 Sara Evans - All The Love You Left Me (7 weeks; peak #5)
14 14 Turbowolf with Mike Kerr - Domino (4 weeks; peak #14)
15 21 Lorde with Run The Jewels - Supercut (3 weeks; PEAK)
16 12 Grand Blanc - Ailleurs (6 weeks; peak #5)
17 10 Bicep - Opal (Four Tet Remix) (3 weeks; peak #10)
18 24 Spector - Fine Not Fine / Wild Guess (3 weeks; PEAK)
19 25 Lily Allen - Three (3 weeks; PEAK)
20 20 Kate Nash - Life In Pink (2 weeks; peak #20)
21 13 Kylie - Dancing (Initial Talk Remix) (5 weeks; peak #9)
22 29 No Mana - Someone To Erase (2 weeks; PEAK)
23 NE Whenyoung - Pretty Pure VIDEO (language)
Great voice on this Radio X playlisted indie track - like early Catatonia.

24 NE Sarah Reeves - Something About You VIDEO
:o UNEXPECTEDLY QUICK FOLLOW-UP VIDEO #1. I'd love to put this higher but it's not in the same league as Feel.... She does have a very commercial sound, it's a shame she's seemingly stuck in a limbo that nobody knows how to market (too "holy" for mainstream, not holy enough for CCM media).

25 17 Turbowolf with Sebastien Grainger - Cheap Magic (4 weeks; peak #16)
26 18 Turbowolf - The Free Life (4 weeks; peak #17)
27 35 Kim Wilde - Kandy Krush (2 weeks; PEAK)
28 19 Priest - Our Time Will Come (6 weeks; peak #5)
29 22 MGMT - Me and Michael (7 weeks; peak #10)
30 NE Dominique - Use Me (Quantinium Remix) AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
31 NE Underoath - Rapture VIDEO
:o UNEXPECTEDLY QUICK FOLLOW-UP VIDEO #2. This one is clearly more Christian but it's far less strong than On My Teeth. This creates a unique chart situation. I can't remember a time when a #1 record was so quickly followed by such a less successful follow-up on my chart (songs charting out of sequence don't count). In olden days, i might let the current song drop off but this one is so quick it's just not possible! :lol:
As you can see, Sarah Reeves is in a similar situation! Her song was set to be my number one regardless.

32 23 Hammer - C-Space (3 weeks; peak #23)
33 27 Anavae - All Or Nothing (9 weeks; peak #4)
34 28 Lane 8 - Stir Me Up (9 weeks; peak #6)
35 26 Tonight Alive - Temple (10 weeks; peak #1)
36 30 Betty Who - Ignore Me (5 weeks; peak #23)
37 32 Anavae - Are We Alone? (9 weeks; peak #9)
38 31 Cam - Diane (9 weeks; peak #16)
39 33 Steffany Gretzinger - Save Me (3 weeks; peak #33)
40 34 Christabelle - Taboo (3 weeks; peak #32)

TONY'S ALBUM CHART 23rd MARCH 2018

1 NE Biosphere - The Hilvarenbeek Recordings
SPOTIFY
Nature and ambience combined. Track 2 is literally the sound of a bat!

2 1 Andrew WK - You're Not Alone (3 weeks; peak #1)
3 NE Kim Wilde - Here Come The Aliens SPOTIFY
Bits of everything here - rock, pop, disco, ballads. Most of it good - blatant mimicry/stealing from Japan and Duran on Yours 'Til The End!

4 2 Ashley Campbell - The Lonely One (2 weeks; peak #2)
5 3 Turbowolf - The Free Life (2 weeks; peak #3)
6 5 Tracey Thorn - Record (3 weeks; peak #2)
7 4 Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow - Annihilation (OST) (2 weeks; peak #4)
8 7 Rae Morris - Someone Out There (7 weeks; peak #1)
9 6 Editors - Violence (2 weeks; peak #6)
10 NE Tom Middleton - Sleep Better SPOTIFY
11 9 Field Music - Open Here (7 weeks; peak #2)
12 10 IAMX - Alive In New Light (7 weeks; peak #3)
13 8 Young Fathers - Cocoa Sugar (2 weeks; peak #8)
14 NE Dorothy - 28 Days In The Valley SPOTIFY
A rock singer and her band. Surprise iTunes hit. Makes the right retro sounds but a bit empty and pointless - i prefer Blues Pills.
I had more interest in this than the currently bland Fratellis though - unless they release a decent single, i'm not listening, total shame.

15 NE The Belonging Co - All The Earth (live) SPOTIFY

In those youtube days, bands/singers are can be so quick in releasing their ''singles'' or music videos. In a little while everyone's gonna do a They Might Be Giants and release something every day.

23 NE Whenyoung - Pretty Pure
Not bad, I actually like this one

^ Yeah, obviously Beyonce and Marina and Charlotte G are other unique cases.
But it's very odd for a metal band to be doing real videos in such quick succession. Not basic performance stuff or a lyric video like i've seen.

Extra notes: first top 20 for Wolf Alice - previous biggest Moaning Lisa Smile (#26).
After previous 2 sets got to 11 and 10 Biosphere has big improvement!

3 3 Kim Wilde - Here Come The Aliens (2 weeks; peak #3)
4 4 Ashley Campbell - The Lonely One (3 weeks; peak #2)
5 NE Joni Mitchell - Chalk Mark In A Rain Storm SPOTIFY
1988 set. I have purposely avoided her albums til i heard a track from this on Absolute 80s' Forgotten 80s radio show - track 9 that sounds like Laurie Anderson. An experimental pop set a bit like Kate Bush and featuring Peter Gabriel, Wendy and Lisa and Billy Idol.

6 NE Johann Johannsson - Englaborn and Variations reissue set on SPOTIFY
2002 release remastered and with second disc of reworks by other artists and Johannsson.

24 NE Chvrches - Never Say Die
I can only admit I am not impressed by their recent material.
12 NE Jack White - Boarding House Reach
Another disappointment.

TONY'S HITS CHART 6th APRIL 2018

1 4 Post Precious - Lose Myself
LYRIC VIDEO (2 weeks; PEAK)
Their second chart-topper.

2 NE Lily Kershaw - Another VIDEO
Image
Another(!) great single - completely different style to her others, too. Major talent.

3 5 Chvrches with Matt Berninger - My Enemy AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (6 weeks; PEAK)
Really should be a proper single. Slow-burner, as you can see.

4 7 Wolf Alice - Sadboy VIDEO (5 weeks; PEAK)
5 1 Sarah Reeves - Feel The Waters VIDEO (9 weeks; peak #1)
6 8 Tracey Thorn - Dancefloor SPOTIFY DIRECT STREAM LINK (2 weeks; PEAK)
Radio 2 are backing this Pet Shop Boys style banger, but 6 Music are going for Sister, a track i'm not as keen on. Still no non-stream link.

7 3 The Slow Readers Club - You Opened Up My Heart VIDEO (4 weeks; peak #3)
Come on, radio! Kicks Editors' arses! :roll:

8 21 Kacey Musgraves - Slow Burn ^ :lol: LIVE TV CLIP (2 weeks; PEAK)
Her biggest song by some distance - since her first hit Blowin' Smoke reached 22.

9 2 Rae Morris - Lower The Tone AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (11 weeks; peak #2)
10 24 Chvrches - Never Say Die AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (2 weeks; PEAK)
11 9 CuckooLander - Mercury / Lone Pine Drive NE / Peach Tin Shed (EP_02) SPOTIFY EP STREAM (4 weeks; peak #6)
Full EP is out.

Image
Spooky Danish female singer, discovered on Heppolo's chart.

14 NE Hilary Woods - Heartbox / Bathing VIDEO / Sabbath VIDEO (Heartbox EP) FULL EP ON YOUTUBE / FULL EP ON SPOTIFY
Image
Former JJ72 bassist (and adored goddess) is now making chilled alt music. This 2016 release is ranked high through the punchy title track though Bathing is the lead. Sabbath is a rework of an earlier song Secret Sabbath...

15 NE Hilary Woods - Inhaler VIDEO
Latest - from upcoming debut album (though she released one as The River Cry in 2013).

16 6 Riah - Prom (3 weeks; peak #6)
17 10 Spector - Fine Not Fine / Wild Guess (5 weeks; peak #10)

TONY'S ALBUM CHART 6th APRIL 2018

1 NE Kate Nash - Yesterday Was Forever
SPOTIFY
Imageimgurl
Some great pop on this, better than expected from the rugged singles. I'm not saying it's Made Of Bricks but it deserves more recognition.

2 NE Steffany Gretzinger - Blackout SPOTIFY
Imageimage sharing
Bethel Music vocalist experiments on an album that should appeal to fans of Lights and Plumb.

3 NE Kacey Musgraves - Golden Hour SPOTIFY
Imageimage hosting 10mb limit
Her first 2 albums missed my top ten (though strong competition prevented the first from getting there).

4 1 Biosphere - The Hilvarenbeek Recordings (3 weeks; peak #1)
5 2 Andrew WK - You're Not Alone (5 weeks; peak #1)
6 3 Kim Wilde - Here Come The Aliens (3 weeks; peak #3)
7 4 Ashley Campbell - The Lonely One (4 weeks; peak #2)
8 7 Turbowolf - The Free Life (4 weeks; peak #3)
9 8 Tracey Thorn - Record (5 weeks; peak #2)
10 10 Rae Morris - Someone Out There (9 weeks; peak #1)
11 9 Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow - Annihilation (OST) (4 weeks; peak #4)
12 NE Lissie - Castles SPOTIFY
13 NE Prides - A Mind Like The Tide: Part Two (MA) SPOTIFY
14 NE The Weeknd - My Dear Melancholy, (MA) SPOTIFY
15 NE Mo Jamil - Evolve SPOTIFY
A great vocalist and The Voice UK 2017 victor. Sadly, this largely bland album does him little justice. And they wonder why Voice UK contestants have no careers. Only reason i'm charting this is because i like him and he needs all the help he can get.

Don't recall Sisters either. The guy doesn't sing anymore, completely different sound. Sisters is probably a bad non-specific name to Google.

6 4 Biosphere - The Hilvarenbeek Recordings (4 weeks; peak #1)
7 6 Kim Wilde - Here Come The Aliens (4 weeks; peak #3)
8 NE Wreckless Eric - Wreckless Eric SPOTIFY
1978 debut.

9 NE Various Artists - Johnny Cash: Forever Words - The Music SPOTIFY
Cash's posthumous book of poems and lyrics set to music. Includes Chris Cornell. Much better than both the pointless Elton John covers sets (i'll accept QOTSA only).

10 NE Wye Oak - The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs SPOTIFY
11 NE Mastersystem - Dance Music SPOTIFY
The Hutchison brothers from Frightened Rabbit and the Lockey brothers from Editors and Minor Victories.

18 NE The Aces - When My Heart Felt Volcanic SPOTIFY
19 9 Tracey Thorn - Record (6 weeks; peak #2)

21 NE Hillsong Worship - There Is More (live) SPOTIFY
22 NE Lisa Stansfield - Deeper SPOTIFY
23 10 Rae Morris - Someone Out There (10 weeks; peak #1)

Not a bad album.
18 NE The Aces - When My Heart Felt Volcanic
I don't know, too same-y for me, almost no substance.

11 NE Prince - Nothing Compares 2 U VIDEO
His estate has sanctioned a release - finally - of his original studio version. Only previously available in live versions. Accompanied by exclusive footage of rehearsals from 1984. I have to say it doesn't compare to either Sinead's or his version with Rosie Gaines.

12 39 Andrew WK - Music Is Worth Living For VIDEO (12 weeks; peak #1)
Finally a video!

TONY'S ALBUM CHART 20th APRIL 2018

1 1 Kate Nash - Yesterday Was Forever
(3 weeks; peak #1) 3 WEEKS AT #1!
2 2 Steffany Gretzinger - Blackout (3 weeks; peak #2)
3 3 Kacey Musgraves - Golden Hour (3 weeks; peak #3)
4 5 Andrew WK - You're Not Alone (7 weeks; peak #1)
5 6 Biosphere - The Hilvarenbeek Recordings (5 weeks; peak #1)
6 7 Kim Wilde - Here Come The Aliens (5 weeks; peak #3)
7 4 Wreckless Eric - Construction Time and Demolition (2 weeks; peak #4)
8 NE Manic Street Preachers - Resistance Is Futile SPOTIFY
Not a great album but the best of an uninspiring bunch. The air of blandness that has encroached since the noughties is all too prevalent.

9 NE A Place To Bury Strangers - Pinned SPOTIFY
APTB's album is a big disappointment. Gone is the wall of noise - replaced by not very exciting sub Mary Chain material.

10 NE Ledger - Ledger (MA) SPOTIFY
Jen Ledger from Skillet going electronic.

11 NE Queen Kwong - Love Me To Death SPOTIFY
Another disappointment.

12 NE The Damned - Evil Spirits SPOTIFY
13 NE Tinashe - Joyride SPOTIFY
And another disappointment. Virtually all the quirks that made her stand out from the rest of the r n b scene are gone.

14 15 Ashley Campbell - The Lonely One (6 weeks; peak #2)
15 16 Turbowolf - The Free Life (6 weeks; peak #3)

In the case of Snow Patrol I like this second single better than the first!

TONY'S HITS CHART 27th APRIL 2018

1 1 Kacey Musgraves - Slow Burn
AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (5 weeks; peak #1)
2 2 Lily Kershaw - Another (4 weeks; peak #1)
3 3 Post Precious - Lose Myself (5 weeks; peak #1)
4 4 Wolf Alice - Sadboy (8 weeks; peak #4) 4 WEEKS AT #4!
5 28 A Perfect Circle - So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (2 weeks; PEAK)
At first, this jaunty track seems strange for them but it's actually better than the recent more typically doomy singles/grats - the video has been "trending" since release, according to YouTube. Named after a Douglas Adams Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy book - of course.

6 NE Kim Petras - Heart To Break VIDEO
Image
She's the famous teen transsexual a decade on from that and an associate of Charli XCX. I had already decided to chart this and another song before i knew for sure they were Dr Luke co-productions/compositions. It's not ideal (and she's had some flack for her non-subtle reactions to critics) but...

7 NE The Asteroids Galaxy Tour - Surrender VIDEO
Image
Danish pop duo still going after more than a decade. This Robyn-ish song might be a hit - in an alternate universe. First hit for me.

8 NE Kim Petras - Hillside Boys AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
2017 track.

9 NE Sarah Reeves - Speechless VIDEO
Another video!

10 NE Meg Myers - Numb AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
It's musically a bit less intimate than i'm used to from her.

11 NE Blood Red Shoes - God Complex AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
Their biggest ever hit! Their first It's Getting Boring By The Sea peaked at 20.

12 5 Chvrches with Matt Berninger - My Enemy (9 weeks; peak #3)
13 6 Sarah Reeves - Feel The Waters (12 weeks; peak #1)
14 7 Tracey Thorn - Dancefloor (5 weeks; peak #6)
15 8 The Slow Readers Club - You Opened Up My Heart (7 weeks; peak #3)
16 9 Chvrches - Never Say Die (5 weeks; peak #9)
17 10 Steffany Gretzinger - Blackout (5 weeks; peak #10)
18 11 Prince - Nothing Compares 2 U (2 weeks; peak #11)
19 12 Andrew WK - Music Is Worth Living For (13 weeks; peak #1)
20 NE Kimbra - Like They Do On The TV VIDEO
21 23 Man Without Country - Remember The Bad Things (2 weeks; PEAK)
22 RE Chvrches - Get Out LIVE TV CLIP (5 weeks; peak #18)
In the absence of a proper video, that'll have to do. Inexplicably, they've done a video for the ropey Imagine Dragons imitation that is Miracle - completely ill-fitting of their talents. :evil:

23 NE The Shires - Guilty VIDEO
First hit.

24 NE Hatchie - Sleep VIDEO
Another video!

25 13 Rae Morris - Lower The Tone (14 weeks; peak #2)
26 14 CuckooLander - Mercury / Lone Pine Drive / Peach Tin Shed (EP_02) (7 weeks; peak #6)
27 15 Hatchie - Sugar and Spice (4 weeks; peak #13)
28 16 Hilary Woods - Heartbox / Bathing / Sabbath (Heartbox EP) (4 weeks; peak #14)
29 17 Hilary Woods - Inhaler (4 weeks; peak #15)
30 18 Taylor Swift - Delicate (8 weeks; peak #5)
31 NE Jon Hopkins - Everything Connected AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
32 19 Riah - Prom (6 weeks; peak #6)
33 NE Hilary Woods - Black Rainbow AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
34 21 Kitten - I Did It! (11 weeks; peak #1)
35 20 Spector - Fine Not Fine / Wild Guess (8 weeks; peak #10)
36 RE A Perfect Circle - The Doomed (3 weeks; peak #13)
37 25 Kate Nash - Life In Pink (7 weeks; peak #20)
38 22 Lorde with Run The Jewels - Supercut (8 weeks; peak #11)
39 27 Snow Patrol - Life On Earth (3 weeks; peak #26)
40 29 Lily Allen - Three LIVE TV CLIP (8 weeks; peak #14)

TONY'S ALBUM CHART 27th APRIL 2018

1 NE Sleep - Sleep's Holy Mountain
SPOTIFY (2015 REMASTER)
Image
This doom/stoner metal trio released a surprise album on 4/20. I had not listened to their albums previously, this is the 1992 release (in a "full dynamic range" version). I must check the original to see if it indeed is different but this benefits from being more concise and less rambling than the other 2 i'm charting.

2 NE The Shires - Accidentally On Purpose SPOTIFY
Image
Best album so far by this (and consequently any) UK country act.

3 1 Kate Nash - Yesterday Was Forever (4 weeks; peak #1)
4 2 Steffany Gretzinger - Blackout (4 weeks; peak #2)
5 3 Kacey Musgraves - Golden Hour (4 weeks; peak #3)
6 NE Charli XCX - Number 1 Angel / Pop 2 (combined release) YOUTUBE Pop 2 Live stream (language)
This is a vinyl or cassette combined release of her 2 mixtapes (#s 1 and 2 on my chart). Cassette is of more use to me - i'm still waiting for the delivery of the Atlantic US store release. She celebrated the release with a stream of a guest-starred Pop 2 gig from March. Hopefully i'll get my tape in time for next chart so it can be number one.

7 NE A Perfect Circle - Eat The Elephant SPOTIFY
Not in the same league as their previous classics.

8 NE Sleep - Dopesmoker SPOTIFY (2012 release)
Recorded in the 90s but not properly finalised on record until recently. One 63 minute track! (bonus track on different releases)

9 NE Sleep - The Sciences SPOTIFY
The new album.

10 NE Kimbra - Primal Heart SPOTIFY
11 NE Jesus Jones - Passages SPOTIFY
Not enough technology on it.

12 NE Jade MayJean - 20Sixty SPOTIFY
Sultry Voice UK singer - better than some higher profile contestants' albums.

13 4 Andrew WK - You're Not Alone (8 weeks; peak #1)
14 NE Chas and Dave - A LIttle Bit Of Us SPOTIFY
15 NE My Indigo - My Indigo SPOTIFY
Within Temptation's Sharon Den Adel doing adult pop.

16 5 Biosphere - The Hilvarenbeek Recordings (6 weeks; peak #1)
17 6 Kim Wilde - Here Come The Aliens (6 weeks; peak #3)
18 7 Wreckless Eric - Construction Time and Demolition (3 weeks; peak #4)

Everything above this point is recommended. The remaining 2 albums are cautiously so...
19 NE Ashley Monroe - Sparrow SPOTIFY
Too bland. :cry:

20 NE TesseracT - Sonder SPOTIFY
Not as bad as NME's description of Tool performed by a Boyzone vocalist but entertainingly and ramshacklingly odd! :lol:

30 NE Christina Aguilera with Ty Dolla Sign and 2 Chainz - Accelerate

I must admit, it's good for a giggle or two, but there's something missing to make it really catchy (at least for me).

2 20 Kimbra - Like They Do On The TV

Strong showing, this week. I was not expecting that.

15 NE Elena Temnikova - Temnikova III: Не модные (Not Fashionable)

Oh, Elena. She has occassional great pop moments, but too many fillers.

It's sheer soft porn and she looks amazing make-up free. The song is 0.1% of the reason i'm charting it. :D

Blood Red Shoes? :o

Not that plastic surgery free (lips aren't looking too good), but I wasn't paying too much attention.

Lips n tits both enhanced. But she let the freckles breath. But enough of her - Hatchie's also stunning. :wink: And Kim Petras has great boobs.
I didn't post a Laura-Mary from Blood Red Shoes pic as there's no current pics but let's not forget her.
Here's a 2017 pic (she's blonde!):
