So i went and checked out this song again (I think it may of been the first time), with the contro to see who this guy is. Hated it from the get go :lol:.

Chart Run: *4*- / 1w

A strong debut for Charli XCX
It really is, unfortunately i don't see it hanging on for too long... :oops:

phoenix98 wrote:Yeah - it's disappointing enough that they don't believe in doing full Battle Frontiers anymore, but it's really a shame they stopped adding any kind of more-creative post-game battling options like the Treehollow, Pokémon World Tournament, etc. The Battle Agency is something, at least - but it doesn't offer anything new, since it's essentially the same as the old Battle Factory. Ah, I'd forgotten about your affinity for Plant/Grass-types! Have you added any to your current team other than Rowlet? Even though she was only a seventh/rotational member, I enjoyed trying out Tsareena/Fruyal - she's got a massive attack stat, and she can fully evolve as early as Lv. 29. Also - that makes PERFECT sense for Sawsbuck! It could work like those Pokémon that evolve in certain areas (like Nosepass/Nasgnet into Probopass/Voluminas), or something like Oricorio's/Choreogel's nectar - with each of the four islands allowing it to become a different seasonal form. That's a big missed opportunity, actually...

I did! The camera angle can get a little frustrating sometimes, but I love that the Pokémon World finally has a city large enough where you can get legitimately lost :lol: With so many streets, alleys, plazas, shops, and cafés, it feels like you're actually exploring a major metropolis (especially compared to previous "big" cities like Goldenrod/Dukatia, Jubilife/Jubelstadt, or even Castelia/Stratos.)

Ha, that's SO true about moves back in the day! You couldn't even see a move's base power in-game until Gen II... :lol:

Ha, I really am! Granted, I don't really play any other video games (well, except for Pokémon Go when I'm out-and-about), so any "video game time" = "Pokémon time" for me :lol: I just passed Hapu's Grand Trial, so I'm very close to the end of the main story now...
That makes me wonder why they didn't make another great Battle Frontier, as fans seemed to enjoy it a lot. Also, nowadays, the 'hardcore' fans are usually so fast with the main story, so it would be really nice to add some cool post-game battling options.
I used Tsareena/Fruyal in my Sun playthrough and it was really cool to play with it. As for Ultramoon, i haven't played in two weeks or so, so there's no new addition to my team yet. But it's been a busy time lately, hopefully this will change again soon so i'll have more time to play it again.
It really was a missed opportunity. Here's hope they add it to the next game, as i would love to play with it again.

Okay, that's true, it's actually cool to have a 'real' city in a game, as most other towns are way too small to be called 'town' IMO :lol: But as you say, the camera angle really made it so awful to coordinate where you are so i was lost like 99% of the time! :oops:

But that made it much better IMO. I mean, you really had to try things out and see what happens, so you were able to discover lots of stuff.

Oh wow! How many hours do you have now? As i said above, i didn't play in the last two weeks or so, so i'm still under 10 hours :oops: Also, i have to add as well that any video game time = Pokémon time for me as well, so i basically NEVER play video games lately... :oops: :cry:

phoenix98 wrote:Did you two speak/connect at all for Christmas? Not that you should have or needed to or anything - it just seems like a time when people from your past often pop up/reach out. Sentimental occasion, I guess. Granted, I'm not sure if he really celebrates at all anyway...
Well, i wanted to wish him and his family a Merry Christmas. But he was faster and already wish me and my loved ones a Merry Christmas on the 23rd, so i wrote him back and wish him and his loved ones the same. That was all :) And, he is celebrating it, as his family is catholic and always go to the church on the 24th.

phoenix98 wrote:I haven't...which doesn't really make sense, since I liked all four singles :lol: I think my reluctance to pick up Get Weird had at least a little to do with the fact that I was pretty underwhelmed by DNA. Now that Glory Days has shown me that I can really enjoy a full album of theirs, there's really no excuse!

Really? That sucks :( Apple Music has recommended/directed me to at least a few full K-Pop albums, but I haven't tried actively seeking out any J-Pop albums yet. If what you're saying is true, that's a HUGE omission! :-?
Ah okay. Well, this can happen, especially when you didn't use streaming back then, you want to be sure to pick up albums you really like, so they money is not wasted.

You're also into J-Pop artists, are you? There are just a few i would have liked to listen to, maybe i just had bad luck with them :oops:

phoenix98 wrote: :lol:

Might that factor into your 2018 New Year's Resolutions...? NoOoOo pressure, of course! ;)
I don't know. Definitely smoking as less as possible is a New Year's Resolution, but already saying i will quit would be wrong, as i definitely wouldn't quit that way.

phoenix98 wrote:Ah, right - The Architect is ANOTHER one to add to that "to do" list of mine :lol: I actually didn't add any new albums this past week, though, since I've had Christmas music and 2017 highlights on the brain...
Oh sure, you need to check that one out! I mean, you loved her last album, did you?
Same with me. There'll be no new entries on the Album Charts at all tomorrow, but Christmas releases will benefit a lot as i was super busy lately and often just played my current Christmas Playlist in the background.

phoenix98 wrote:Admittedly, I haven't been tracking your album chart quite as closely, but that sounds like a MASSIVE achievement :o Nearly a full YEAR! Do you know the records for weeks inside the album Top 20?
Good question... i never really looked this up, but it was always clear to me which one is the longest running album on the charts. I just made a research and here are all albums which spent 40+ weeks on the chart:

Spoiler:
112 weeks - "Shine" by Anette Olzon (2014, 7xP)
94 weeks - "Lindsey Stirling" by Lindsey Stirling (2013, 5xP)
85 weeks - "Utopia" by Kerli (2013, 5xP)
80 weeks - "Born To Die" by Lana Del Rey (2012, 5xP)
71 weeks - "Hydra" by Within Temptation (2014, 3xP)
68 weeks - "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry (2010, 4xP)
66 weeks - "The Fame Monster" by Lady GaGa (2010, 5xP)
62 weeks - "Love Is Dead" by Kerli (2010, 3xP)
60 weeks - "Brave Enough" by Lindsey Stirling (2016, 3xP)
59 weeks - "Halcyon" by Ellie Goulding (2012, 4xP)
58 weeks - "Heal" by Loreen (2012, 3xP)
57 weeks - "Shatter Me" by Lindsey Stirling (2014, 3xP)
57 weeks - "The Fame" by Lady GaGa (2010, 4xP)
56 weeks - "Unorthodox Jukebox" by Bruno Mars (2012, 3xP)
51 weeks - "x" by Ed Sheeran (2014, 2xP)
50 weeks - "Storyteller" by Carrie Underwood (2015, 2xP)
50 weeks - "21" by Adele (2011, 4xP)
48 weeks - "1989" by Taylor Swift (2014, P)
48 weeks - "Loud" by Rihanna (2010, 3xP)
48 weeks - "Imaginaerum" by Nightwish (2011, 3xP)
45 weeks - "Revival" by Selena Gomez (2015, 2xP)
45 weeks - "Bangerz" by Miley Cyrus (2013, 3xP)
43 weeks - "ARTPOP" by Lady GaGa (2013, 2xP)
42 weeks - "Endless Forms Most Beautiful" by Nightwish (2015, 2xP)
42 weeks - "Crystal Sky" by Lena (2015, 2xP)
41 weeks - "Halcyon Days" by Ellie Goulding (2013, 2xP)
41 weeks - "A Curious Thing" by Amy MacDonald (2010, 3xP)
40 weeks - "Sweet Talker" by Jessie J (2014, 2xP)


I think that must be all. Note that album charts only started in 2010 and there was just a Top10 at first.

phoenix98 wrote: :o I'd forgotten that it made such a minor impact here! Granted, I guess that brief appearance kind of explains WHY I've forgotten... :lol:
:oops: Well, maybe it will come back with the album release... who knows? :oops:

phoenix98 wrote::o True to Tansike tradition, a non-holiday song wound up on top after all (even with plenty of competition inside your Top 5) :lol: Your new No. 1 is a really lovely song, though! The lyrics might not have anything to do with Christmas, but it still has a very pretty wintry sound/feel to it.
• Glad to see "Guilty" still climbing - and now it matched the peak of "Can't Rely On You." :D
• After my comment about "Out Of My Head" being "good-but-not-one-of-the-best", I kept playing it quite a bit and it turned out to be the second-highest-debut from Pop 2. :lol:
• Looks like "...Ready For It?" could end up matching the longevity of LWYMMD...
• For not being around all that long/only having three "regular" albums, Ari's served up quite a few quality Christmas tunes (and covers too), with "Santa Tell Me" being a strong contender for my favorite of the bunch (though her twist on "Last Christmas" really grew on me.) I'm pretty sure you're the reason I checked out Christmas & Chill last year, so thanks again for encouraging that!
• Speaking of Christmas classics, I'm obviously lovin' that re-entry for AIWFCIY :D The fact that it finally earned that (MUCH-deserved) Top 10 status on the Hot 100 after 23 years was a true Christmas miracle! :cry:
• Must be the year-end-effect for "Spirit Animal", "Bad Liar", and "Now Or Never"?

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas (and have an equally awesome New Year's), Tansike! :D
Haha yeah... it's kinda funny as we were talking about this only like one or two weeks ago, and now it happened again. But My Indigo's new release was way too strong for Lindsey and every other song this week. But there's a Christmas boost on tomorrow's chart as i've been listening to a lot of Christmas music, so who knows what happens?
I'm very glad to hear you think "Out Of The Darkness" is a lovely song, and yeah, it really fits to the current season :)

This could be a nice hit for Paloma on my chart, as i really enjoy it at the moment. Not sure if it will go further up the charts though, but she should stay on the chart for several weeks.

YAY for "Out Of My Head" 8-)

Yes, RFI definitely showed good longevity now. I think i also like both equally as much, depends on the mood.

Oh yeah, now i remember that we were talking about her Christmas releases last year! I just fell in love with "Christmas & Chill" again, such a great EP, and "Christmas Kisses" is great too. Would have been cool if she would have released another EP this year, so it would have been a new Christmas EP every two years and always between her proper studio albums... :oops:
You still don't like "Love Is Everything", do you? That one is still my favorite one, though "Santa Tell Me" already comes close for me.

Definitely a well deserved Top10 spot on the Hot 100 8-) Unfortunately, i'm not as into it this season like i was last year, so don't expect much for it on my charts... :oops:

Thanks a lot - and same to you! :D

Magnus wrote:I have stopped checking out new songs for this year so I can't comment on a lot of the new entries, but "Out of the Darkness" had already made it into my database (due to "My Indigo" being a hit) and that one is really good! Yeah, I know Sharen den Adel from Within Temptation, immediately recognized her name when I first saw "My Indigo" on your chart, although maybe I wouldn't have immdiately recognized her voice if I had listened before I knew it was her. Definitely going to listen to the album (April feels quite far away though).

I like that it's not a Christmas song that is #1 this week, although the oppsite happened on mine (where Christmas songs rarely have had success in the past).

Have you considered starting a new thread for your chart for 2018 onwards? I've noticed that this one (I assume due to the huge number of pages) loads much slower than other threads on UKMix, which can often be a bit annoying.
So amazing to hear you enjoy "Out Of The Darkness" as well! :D It's a really beautiful song and i simply love her voice on this. Well, i do love her voice in general, but on "Out Of The Darkness" it sounds stronger than usual and this kind of song fits her very well. Yeah, April still seems far away. I'm surprise she's waiting so long to release this.

I already saw your current #1 earlier today and was surprised that it's a Christmas song (and was even more surprised by the artist - but i try to catch up with comments tomorrow). While this is the Christmas week, the actual Christmas effect can be seen on tomorrow's chart, so maybe there'll be a Christmas track at #1...

Oh, i had no idea my topic is loading slower than other threads :o Do you have the same problem with other big topics, such as Akini's daily chart or the Mariah Carey GAD topic? I never noticed it that this thread may be slower than others. Maybe it's not the amount of posts, but the pics i'm using for my charts...
Anyways, no, i won't start a new topic for 2018. Maybe i will think about changing something when it comes to the presentation, so i could use less pictures...

edit: I just remembered that UKMix has a problem in loading in general lately, so maybe my topic may not be the problem, but the page in general? :oops:

Oops :oops: As you see, i really love this and it actually belongs to my favorite songs of the year... :oops: Anyways, thanks for checking it out! And while i love the song, i actually agree with you when it comes to Noah Cyrus. But as long as she releases bops like this, i'm okay with it :lol: :oops:

Is this your favorite version of Hallelujah?
Hmm good question, i think my favorite version would be the one by Jeff Buckley or even Leonard Cohen's original. I also love the instrumental version by Lindsey Stirling, but Pentatonix definitely did an amazing cover. Do you like it as well?

Great to see this RE! Surprised looking at the chart run it elusively missed that #1 spot.
I was really into this last year and usually i'm not a fan of her at all, so reaching #2 is a huge feat for her on my charts. Maybe #1 will happen one day :)

Love this as well!!!! Another song that missed out on the #1 spot. Tansike what are you doing :lol:

PS: Merry Christmas to you too! <3 xx
:lol: I just talked with phoenix98 about this lately and i never realized it, but since Christmas tracks started to blow up on my charts, they ALWAYS ended up at #2 during Christmas weeks, while another non-Christmas song was #1, so this seems to be a curse when it comes to my charts :oops:
Anyways, very happy to hear you love "Love Is Everything", as it's still my favorite Christmas song by Ariana <3

Thanks <3

thanks so much for all comments

week 52/2017 – 28 december 2017 Happy New Year, everyone! <3

    Singles Top40
It’s the last week of the year, so like every year at this time, there’s not a lot going on on the weekly chart, with some Christmas songs still doing well and some already falling, while only a handful of new entries arrive in the Top40.

The festive season pushed two releases a lot, and that are the Christmas albums by Lindsey Stirling and Gwen Stefani. Lindsey still owns three entries in the Top10 of the Singles Top40, and “Carol Of The Bells” remains the strongest one, as it returns to the top for a second non-consecutive week there (2-1). “Christmas C’mon” spends a sixth week in the Top5 (3-4) while “Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy” dips 6-7 in its eighth charting week. Meanwhile, Gwen’s “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” jumps 13-6 to become her ninth Top10 entry.

Other Christmas songs in the Top40: “Feliz Navidad” by Tarja falls 4-9, while her other two songs “O Tannenbaum” (14-21) and “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” (18-30) drop even more places. Pentatonix’ “Hallelujah” goes down 10-15, while Ariana Grande has a good week as her “Santa Tell Me” goes up 25-18 while “Love Is Everything” increases 30-28. Lindsey Stirling’s rendition of “Hallelujah” makes a huge leap by climbing 40-23, Sia’s “Santa’s Coming For Us” gets a new peak by going 33-27 and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas” seems to have a much smaller impact than last year as it’s already down 28-33.

When it comes to new entries, there are only three debuts on the charts this week, and two of them got into the Top5. Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors and Bebe Rexha all teamed up on the track “Home”, which is on the soundtrack of the Netflix movie “Bright”, and makes an impressive debut at #3. It’s Machine Gun Kelly’s first notation ever, while the other two already charted before. Following the video release, Katy Perry scores her fourth Top5 hit from her current album “Witness”, as “Hey Hey Hey” arrives at #5. Last but not least, Cardi B’s follow-up to her breakthrough hit “Bodak Yellow” finally got released in form of “Bartier Cardi”, which becomes another Top20 entry for the rapper at #20.

The rest of the Top10: My Indigo’s “Out Of The Darkness” slips 1-2 while “My Indigo” returns to the Top10 (11-10), and Inna’s “Nirvana” drops 5-8.

The Dark Element’s “The Ghost And The Reaper” may leave the Top10 for the first time after six week (7-11), but the song gets certified with Gold this week as their fourth song to do so. Other than that, there are still a few older songs on the charts due to the Year-End Charts effect. “Spirit Animal” by Kerli even rises a bit (32-29), with “Now Or Never” by Halsey (37-38) and “Bad Liar” by Selena Gomez (36-39) both falling a little. Bebe Rexha’s “I Got You” even re-enters the charts at #32, while “Symphony” by Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson is also up a little due to the Year-End hype (35-34).

Lindsey Stirling’s “Hallelujah” is the biggest climber while Charli XCX, Tove Lo and ALMA’s “Out Of My Head” tumbles down 20-37 as the biggest loser this week.

And now: I wish everyone a Happy New Year <3 a HUGE thanks to everyone who took the time to visit this topic, or even made a comment, or even went so far and checked out some stuff. I really appreciate that! See you in 2018! :D

    Album Top20
With me being busy most of the week and basically only putting my current Christmas favorites on repeat, it’s no surprise to see lots of Christmas releases having a big impact on the Album Top20 this week. Lindsey Stirling’s “Warmer In The Winter” takes the crown, as the set rises 2-1 for a fourth non-consecutive week at number one. This brings Lindsey's total weeks atop the album charts to an impressive 20 weeks since her breakthrough in early 2013. The violinist is followed by Gwen Stefani’s “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” (3-2) and Pentatonix’ “A Pentatonix Christmas” (10-3). Ariana Grande jumps a lot with both of her EPs, as “Christmas & Chill” makes the Top5 (14-5) and “Christmas Kisses” being not too far behind (17-7). Sia re-peaks with her “Everyday Is Christmas” (16-6). Meanwhile, two Christmas releases fall a few spots, and that are “From Spirits And Ghosts” by Tarja (6-8) and “This Christmas – Winter Is Coming” by Taeyeon (7-14), but the first one goes Gold this week.

The rest of the best: Inna’s “Nirvana” falls 1-4, The Dark Element’s self-titled album goes down 5-9 while Halsey closes the Top10 with “hopeless fountain kingdom” (9-10).

Charli XCX’ “Pop 2” already falls 4-11, with “Reputation” by Taylor Swift leaving the upper half as well (8-13). Taylor still has a reason to celebrate, as her set goes Gold this week. Meanwhile, while there’s absolutely no new debut in the Top20, there’s at least a re-entry, as Katy Perry’s “Witness” is back at #17 due to the video release for “Hey Hey Hey”.

So i just added a poll as i'm thinking about changing the presentation. It would be cool to get a few feedbacks.

Sometimes i think the presentation seems a bit 'too much'. What are your thoughts?

One way to cut it down a bit is not posting the chartrun for songs. The Top10 would look that way without the chartrun:

Spoiler:
1 (2) 4 Lindsey Stirling – Carol Of The Bells
2 (1) 2 My Indigo (Sharon den Adel) – Out Of The Darkness
3 (NEW) 1 Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors & Bebe Rexha – Home
4 (3) 6 Lindsey Stirling feat. Becky G – Christmas C’mon
5 (NEW) 5 Katy Perry – Hey Hey Hey
6 (13) 4 Gwen Stefani feat. Blake Shelton – You Make It Feel Like Christmas
7 (6) 8 Lindsey Stirling – Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy
8 (5) 4 Inna – Nirvana
9 (4) 3 Tarja – Feliz Navidad
10 (11) 7 My Indigo (Sharon den Adel) – My Indigo


Would that be a nice welcome, or is the chartrun a good thing to look at on my weekly chart?

Thanks in advance for everyone who takes part in the poll or gives a feedback in the topic :D

I voted "It's good how it is" because in general I don't like when things change (unless I'm the one actively doing it) and I haven't had any problems with the current presentation.

On second thought though, it would actually be very useful to be able to have the entire chart (all 40 positions) on the screen at the same time. And the chart runs aren't essential, especially not when following the chart (more or less) every week. It might also be possible to include them (perhaps shortening the long ones) on the same line by playing around with the font sizes. (Although this may look messy on tiny screens.)

The perfect chart presentation should (imho) satisfy all of this:

* Have great visuals (similar to how Biebz's and Era's charts used to look)
* Allow easy copy-paste of the text content
* Include all relevant information
* Include links to the songs/albums on the most popular streaming services (when available)
* Be small enough to fit on the screen all at once
* Be searchable, i.e. the chart contents must show up when using the UKMix search function
* Not unnecessarily waste network traffic.

But obviously there are technical limitations to what can be done here, and some of these points are even fundamentally in conflict with each other, so the perfect chart presentation will most likely never exist (maybe if every viewer can easily make his own customizations...).

Also, in practice this needs to be added to the list:

* Require a minimum of human time/effort to put together each instance of

The most important thing is that the chart continues to live and gets posted, so I would much rather have another six years in a mediocre format than twelve weeks of something stunning and then nothing at all after that!

I used Tsareena/Fruyal in my Sun playthrough and it was really cool to play with it. As for Ultramoon, i haven't played in two weeks or so, so there's no new addition to my team yet. But it's been a busy time lately, hopefully this will change again soon so i'll have more time to play it again.
It really was a missed opportunity. Here's hope they add it to the next game, as i would love to play with it again.

Okay, that's true, it's actually cool to have a 'real' city in a game, as most other towns are way too small to be called 'town' IMO :lol: But as you say, the camera angle really made it so awful to coordinate where you are so i was lost like 99% of the time! :oops:

Oh wow! How many hours do you have now? As i said above, i didn't play in the last two weeks or so, so i'm still under 10 hours :oops: Also, i have to add as well that any video game time = Pokémon time for me as well, so i basically NEVER play video games lately... :oops: :cry:
In an interview around the time ORAS came out, Junichi Masuda (the Producer of ORAS, and Producer/Director of many main series games over the years) kind of addressed the lower difficulty and lack of Battle Frontiers in recent games with a response like: "everyone is very busy and young people have various means of entertainment. Using smartphones and other devices they can access a great number of games, so the time they dedicate to a single game is less than in the past." That seems to boil down to "kids/most of our audience just wouldn't bother with it", and he might have a point there...but it still would've been MUCH appreciated by older fans to at least include the original Frontier in ORAS (and it might've hooked younger players more than he expected.) You make a great point too, given how many players really rush through the main story now, it seems like they should give MORE reasons for people to keep playing in the post-game and not FEWER reasons. Ha, yeah, I can understand not having much gaming time with all the holiday madness these past couple weeks, but hopefully Ultra Moon manages to suck you back in now that things are calming down again. One complaint that I've seen a lot about USUM is that the big story changes from SuMo don't really appear until the climax, which makes it tougher for people who already played through SuMo to stay interested in USUM until the big new plot points pop up.

Ha, yeah - I can understand how it's not much fun to explore a city if you spend most of the time getting frustrated by simply trying to get where you want to go. Hopefully the Switch will make it possible to include massive cities that are ALSO clear to understand/navigate.

I haven't picked up Ultra Sun in a few days due to having friends in town for New Year's Eve, but I think I'm close to 100 hours :oops: Aw...well, although I don't really believe in the idea that people HAVE to give up video games in order to be proper responsible adults, if you're just naturally losing interest in them and preferring to spend your free time elsewhere, I can't be TOO mad/disappointed about that :( Just don't change TOO much on me now!

Tansike wrote:Well, i wanted to wish him and his family a Merry Christmas. But he was faster and already wish me and my loved ones a Merry Christmas on the 23rd, so i wrote him back and wish him and his loved ones the same. That was all :) And, he is celebrating it, as his family is catholic and always go to the church on the 24th.
Ha, that was pretty early of him! I guess he really wanted to beat you to it :lol: Did you ever go to church with him/his family back when you were dating? Actually, I don't think I've ever really asked about religion in your life (if you're even religious at all...?)

Tansike wrote:You're also into J-Pop artists, are you? There are just a few i would have liked to listen to, maybe i just had bad luck with them :oops:
**Nod** I don't have a HUGE J-Pop collection (only around 100-200 songs in my library), but K-Pop has gotten more of my attention the past couple years due to it making more headlines (Billboard posts articles about K-Pop acts pretty often, even though they still don't have much of a presence on the Hot 100/main charts) and popping up on iTunes charts more often.

Tansike wrote:I don't know. Definitely smoking as less as possible is a New Year's Resolution, but already saying i will quit would be wrong, as i definitely wouldn't quit that way.
Ha, I feel that. Resolutions can be fun to talk/joke about, but making actual lasting change in your life takes SO much more than just watching the date change from Dec 31 to Jan 1 :lol: The few times that I've actually managed to break bad habits/start good habits had nothing to do with New Year's.

Tansike wrote:Oh sure, you need to check that one out! I mean, you loved her last album, did you?

Same with me. There'll be no new entries on the Album Charts at all tomorrow, but Christmas releases will benefit a lot as i was super busy lately and often just played my current Christmas Playlist in the background.
I actually haven't heard her last album in full either :oops: but I did really love "Only Love Can Hurt Like This" (No. 1 peak, 19 weeks total on my chart.) I finally added Beautiful Trauma to my library on Friday, but it's not hooking me all that much, so I might move onto The Architect pretty soon...

Tansike wrote:Good question... i never really looked this up, but it was always clear to me which one is the longest running album on the charts. I just made a research and here are all albums which spent 40+ weeks on the chart:
Thanks for being so thorough! Lindsey's quite the longevity queen, with three albums inside the Top 15 of that list! :o

Tansike wrote:Yes, RFI definitely showed good longevity now. I think i also like both equally as much, depends on the mood.
Interesting! I guess I should've expected that, since both hit No. 1 and RFI is on track to last basically as long as LWYMMD did. LYWMMD still does more for me, but RFI would probably rank inside my reputation Top 5 too (maybe No. 6 or 7 at the lowest.)

Tansike wrote:Oh yeah, now i remember that we were talking about her Christmas releases last year! I just fell in love with "Christmas & Chill" again, such a great EP, and "Christmas Kisses" is great too. Would have been cool if she would have released another EP this year, so it would have been a new Christmas EP every two years and always between her proper studio albums... :oops:

You still don't like "Love Is Everything", do you? That one is still my favorite one, though "Santa Tell Me" already comes close for me.
Yeah! It already feels like the Dangerous Woman era ended forever ago (granted, I guess the Manchester tragedy probably played a role in that too), so another Christmas EP would've definitely helped the wait/gap feel shorter.

Ha, maybe next Christmas I'll finally see the light when it comes to that track... :lol:

• Ha, damn, Lindsey came SO close to finally sending a Christmas song to No. 1 the week OF Christmas :lol: At least she got to spend another a week on top before all the festive songs vanish (unless they cling on longer than I'm expecting...? I usually stop playing any holiday stuff pretty much entirely the day after Christmas.)
• I just checked out "Home" for the first time, and although it's not really clicking right away, MGK looks pretty damn good in those scenes of him getting out of the car at the beginning of the video. :oops:
• Looks like the "Hey Hey Hey" video had a pretty positive impact on you? A No. 5 debut seems pretty high, since I didn't think you were too crazy about the song before (it wasn't your least favorite, but definitely not one of your favorites either?) I think the first three Witness singles all went Top 3 (and at least Gold?) here, so we'll see how it compares to those in the long run...
• Aw, so the "Home" and year-end effect helped "I Got You", but not poor "Meant To Be." :(
• I voted "It's good how it is" in the poll, since I think including the chart runs is helpful (especially since I sometimes mix up how songs performed on different people's charts)...but if it would save you a lot of time/stress to not include them every week, your chart would still be just as fun to follow! I think they're a nice bonus, but they're not absolutely necessary for enjoying and understanding your chart.

Yet another chart that rings my bell, Tansike! :D

Thanks a lot for your feedback, it's really appreciated!

That's the point i've been thinking about for a while. With adding the chartruns like i do right now, the whole charts looks so 'big', you have to scroll 'a lot' to see everything. However, adding the chartruns at the bottom of the post (with the new Spoiler add for example) still isn't the solution i'm looking for, as it doesn't look good enough (or i haven't found a way to make it good looking / satisfying). The possibility with the font sizes is a great idea, but as you say, it doesn't look good on every screen (not even on my big iMac; i tried it :oops: ).

These are all good points... i think i already have some, while some are still worth to achieve, like the first point with the visuals à la Era or Biebz. Sometimes i think less is more, and as you say, time is another factor, and better doing it with less visuals but being able to post it on time. That's why i scrapped the airplay charts back in the days, as it turned out to be too much of work for every week to compile THREE charts (plus LastFM was messy at that time, which made it even worse).

So to summarize everything, you really got some amazing points, so thanks for that. Unfortunately, i've been thinking about a few things as well and i simply don't find the perfect solution for me, which makes it quite bad. To go back to your initial problem, i've also experienced that this topic is (much) slower than others on UKMix, especially in the last few days, so it's definitely NOT the page overall which is lagging. I think i'll go through the topic and delete all pics from 2012 - 2016 (or even part of 2017), because i really don't need them anymore and maybe this will help. Some older pics don't show up anymore as the page i used to use closed down, this may be another factor.

I guess i keep on trying things out and you really helped a lot with your points, however, since there's currently a 100% vote for 'It's good how it is', i will keep the presentation as it is for now.

Ouch. That's a very unsatisfying reply IMO... but, as you say, he may have a good point there and why wasting so much time and money on something that may not be used in the end? Anyways, here's hope they will add something nice to the next Generation, since UM/US isn't that much different to Moon/Sun, so they could make up for this 'mess' with the next Generation by adding something many fans were really looking for.
I hope so too. Right now it's very unlikely. I had some time off lately and still didn't game, and when i started a few days ago, i fell asleep after a few minutes... :oops: Also, i really have to admit that i LOVE to watch someone else play games, no idea why, but it's how it is... and since my partner is a gamer, i often just spent HOURS just watching him instead of playing a game as well.

That would be awesome! I'm really looking forward for the first Pokémon game on Switch 8-)

W O W !!! Sure... and, i think... it also may be a 'fresh-in-love'-thing, you know. I just thought about this lately and it really seems that everything (or much more than usual) is about HIM, which is normal at the beginning of a relationship (or also later in a good relationship, i guess?). I didn't have that for years, and i was always bored and kinda got my life together how it was, now i have someone who i really enjoy spending time with, watching him doing things, going out etc.

It was and it got me surprised :lol: Yes, i went with him & his family two or three times. My religion is... well, on paper it's actually evangelical-reformed (i hope that's the correct translation), while in fact i just believe in something ('God'), but i'm not that religious. What about you, if i may ask?

100-200 are still lots of tracks IMO. Oh yeah, there are a few K-Pop artists who keep on charting on the iTunes chart all over the world, while J-Pop is rarely so successful/popular outside of Japan (or Asia overall). How many K-Pop songs do you have in your library?

Resolutions can be fun to talk/joke about, but making actual lasting change in your life takes SO much more than just watching the date change from Dec 31 to Jan 1 :lol: The few times that I've actually managed to break bad habits/start good habits had nothing to do with New Year's.
Definitely! Anyways, if i start a day with thinking i smoke as less as possible, it turns out to be a more-than-average-smoking-day, so i really don't make a resolution there. Did you make some New Years resolutions? :)

phoenix98 wrote:I actually haven't heard her last album in full either :oops: but I did really love "Only Love Can Hurt Like This" (No. 1 peak, 19 weeks total on my chart.) I finally added Beautiful Trauma to my library on Friday, but it's not hooking me all that much, so I might move onto The Architect pretty soon...
WHAT :o Okay, that's shocking now, because i thought you LOVED the songs so it was kinda obvious to me you heard the full thing :oops: Aw, sad to hear this about "Beautiful Trauma", as it's definitely the better for me, but good news for Paloma of course.

phoenix98 wrote:Thanks for being so thorough! Lindsey's quite the longevity queen, with three albums inside the Top 15 of that list! :o
She really is. Since my chart started in 2007, i thought about making a best-of-decade list in 2016, not with songs/albums, but with artists, and Lindsey already was quite high there despite having made her debut in 2013. She even got much more points since then, as she released two albums ("Brave Enough" and the Christmas release "Warmer In The Winter"), so she's definitely one of the most successful artists of all time when it comes to my charts.

phoenix98 wrote:Interesting! I guess I should've expected that, since both hit No. 1 and RFI is on track to last basically as long as LWYMMD did. LYWMMD still does more for me, but RFI would probably rank inside my reputation Top 5 too (maybe No. 6 or 7 at the lowest.)
That's a good ranking! It's similar with me, a very few other tracks rank higher too, like "Don't Blame Me" and the obvious "Delicate".

phoenix98 wrote:Yeah! It already feels like the Dangerous Woman era ended forever ago (granted, I guess the Manchester tragedy probably played a role in that too), so another Christmas EP would've definitely helped the wait/gap feel shorter.

Ha, maybe next Christmas I'll finally see the light when it comes to that track... :lol:
Funny you think so as i was just thinking about that lately, but the final single ("Everyday") only came out early 2017, so it's not that long ago. Anyways, i'm quite sure we get something new in 2018, and i'm really looking forward to that new stuff! 8-)

Fingers crossed :P

phoenix98 wrote:• Ha, damn, Lindsey came SO close to finally sending a Christmas song to No. 1 the week OF Christmas :lol: At least she got to spend another a week on top before all the festive songs vanish (unless they cling on longer than I'm expecting...? I usually stop playing any holiday stuff pretty much entirely the day after Christmas.)
• I just checked out "Home" for the first time, and although it's not really clicking right away, MGK looks pretty damn good in those scenes of him getting out of the car at the beginning of the video. :oops:
• Looks like the "Hey Hey Hey" video had a pretty positive impact on you? A No. 5 debut seems pretty high, since I didn't think you were too crazy about the song before (it wasn't your least favorite, but definitely not one of your favorites either?) I think the first three Witness singles all went Top 3 (and at least Gold?) here, so we'll see how it compares to those in the long run...
• Aw, so the "Home" and year-end effect helped "I Got You", but not poor "Meant To Be." :(
• I voted "It's good how it is" in the poll, since I think including the chart runs is helpful (especially since I sometimes mix up how songs performed on different people's charts)...but if it would save you a lot of time/stress to not include them every week, your chart would still be just as fun to follow! I think they're a nice bonus, but they're not absolutely necessary for enjoying and understanding your chart.

Yet another chart that rings my bell, Tansike! :D
Haha... yeah, she did it with the actual Christmas boost. A Christmas #1 would have been sweet, but i think topping both charts a week after Christmas is a great feat as well. Well, some of the Christmas songs will suffer the usual Post-Christmas drop, but there will be a few smaller drops indeed :wink:

Thanks for checking it out. This was actually love on first play for me :o So i hope it may be a grower for you (if it actually sticks around with you). Yeah, there are some great scenes in the video, but Bebe is the real star there <3 I'm currently low-key stan a bit for her.

Yes and no. It was one of my favorite songs of the album (or at least in the better half), so since it got a video, i allowed it onto my charts and in that week, i played it quite often, so it was enough for a #5 debut. I can't say how well it will do, but it's very unlikely that it will repeat the success of the last three singles, and you're right, they all were quite big hits, with two of them going Gold and one even Platinum.

Ha, right now i'm listening to "Meant To Be" so funny how you mention that one. It may re-enter sooner or later :wink:

Thanks a lot, really appreciated! Now, it doesn't take lots of time as it's already all there, and if a song re-enters, i can just copy the chartrun from my Excel as i collect them all in an Excel (i just need to search them there). I just made the decision that i keep it as it is for now, but i also keep on trying new things out (until i may find something that would fit as new presentation).

Thanks a lot! :D
btw... do you plan to create a Year-End Charts as well? That section is currently really hot and i'd love to see your own countdown :D

Thanks - very appreciated!

...

So, i keep the poll open for another week, maybe someone likes to add something else, and i'm always happy for every feedback. Already a big thanks to all voters! As for the first week of 2018, it will remain the same as it was so far, but there's still the possibility to see a change sometime during the year.

thanks so much for all comments

week 01/2018 – 4 january 2018 someone take me Home

Image
    Singles Top40
New year, new charts, new number one. 2018’s very first number one hit is last weeks highest new entry, as “Home” by Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors and Bebe Rexha rises 3-1 in its second week. As noted a week ago, it’s Machine Gun Kelly’s first chart entry, and now also his first number one hit, while it’s also the first top hit and second entry overall for X Ambassadors (“Renegades” peaked at #12 in 2016 for them), while Bebe already collected eight chart entries in total, including the #1 single “I Got You” from last year, and the Gold certified collaboration “In The Name Of Love” with Martin Garrix.

Speaking of Bebe, she has another two songs in the Top40 this week, as these two songs both benefit from the success of “Home” and the Year-End Charts effect. Her smash “I Got You” jumps 32-21 after its re-entry a week ago, while “Meant To Be” with Florida Georgia Line is back at #34. The Year-End Charts effect is having quite a big impact on this weeks chart overall, as lots of last years big hits are climbing. “Anywhere” by Rita Ora (12-6) and “Again” by Noah Cyrus (14-7) are even back in the Top10, Rachel Platten increases 31-22 with “Perfect For You”, Clean Bandit & Zara Larsson’s “Symphony” is up 34-25, followed by Kerli’s “Spirit Animal” (29-26), which even goes 2x Platinum this week. Kesha’s “Praying” (40-33), Selena Gomez’ “Bad Liar” (39-36) and Halsey’s “Now Or Never” (38-38) are still benefitting from the countdown effect as well, while Hailee Steinfeld & Co.’s “Let Me Go” (#31) and Ed Sheeran’s “Galway Girl” (#35) are able to make little comebacks.

While six of the eight songs that leave the charts are Christmas tracks, there are still a few left on the charts, and some of them are actually falling less than expected. Lindsey Stirling still has three entries, but only “Carol Of The Bells” remains in the Top10 (1-3). Its small drop is also due to the fact that despite the song being a Christmas tune, it’s still typical Lindsey and can be played outside of Christmas as well. Her other two tracks – “Christmas C’mon” (4-17) and “Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy” (7-29) – suffer the usual Christmas drop. The first of these two goes Gold this week, which is the first ever certified entry for the featured Becky G. Other than Lindsey, “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” by Gwen Stefani (6-20), “Hallelujah” by Pentatonix (15-24), “Feliz Navidad” by Tarja (9-37) and “Santa Tell Me” by Ariana Grande (18-40) are the other remaining songs from the festive season.

The mentioned re-entries at the bottom of the charts are not the only songs that bring some action to this weeks Top40, as there are also several new arrivals near the top. Imagine Dragons own the highest one, as their “Whatever It Takes” makes a stellar debut at #4, tying their breakthrough hit “Radioactive” as their highest peaking single ever now. They’re followed by Sigrid, who is new at #5 with “Strangers”. Eminem gets his highest charting track ever with the help of Ed Sheeran, as their “River” is new at #8. Sam Smith’s “One Last Song” arrives at #12 while P!nk has the final new arrival with “Beautiful Trauma” at #13.

The rest of the best: My Indigo’s “Out Of The Darkness” stays at #2, Katy Perry’s “Hey Hey Hey” drops 5-9 and Vanessa Mai’s “Regenbogen” returns to the Top10 (13-10).

In between all these new things going on, Anne-Marie nearly got another Top10 hit on her own as her current single “Then” climbs 16-11. Last but not least, My Indigo’s self-titled debut track drops as low as never before (10-16), but goes Gold this week.

Bebe Rexha’s “I Got You” is the biggest climber, while Tarja’s “Feliz Navidad” is the biggest loser this week.

    Album Top20
Christmas is over, and so it’s no surprise to see all the Christmas releases also losing some ground on the Album Top20. However, the albums are holding on better than the songs on the Singles Top40, as there are still three Christmas releases in the Top10 of the album charts, with “Warmer In The Winter” by Lindsey Stirling (1-4), “A Pentatonix Christmas” by Pentatonix (3-6) and “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” by Gwen Stefani (2-10). Tarja’s “From Spirits And Ghosts” has a bigger drop, but also survives this week (8-20). Completely falling out of the Top20 are “Christmas & Chill” EP (#5) & “Christmas Kisses” EP (#7) by Ariana Grande, Sia’s “Everyday Is Christmas” (#6) and “This Christmas – Winter Is Coming” by Taeyeon (#14).

The new Netflix movie Bright is making the double, as not only its soundtrack single “Home” climbs to the top of the Singles Top40, but also the whole soundtrack makes its arrival at #1 this week as the first number one album of 2018. It’s followed by Inna’s “Nirvana”, which rises back up 4-2, and Eminem’s “Revival”, which enters the charts at #3.

The rest of the Top10: The Dark Element’s self-titled release recovers 9-5, Halsey’s “hopeless fountain kingdom” is up 10-7 while “Waves” by Rachel Platten (12-8) and “Reputation” by Taylor Swift (13-9) are both back in the upper half.

Bebe Rexha had a good 2017, and 2018 is starting really well too, as she’s not only smashing on the singles charts, but her two EP’s from last year are also making some impact on the album charts, with “All Your Fault, Pt. 1” being back at #11 and “All Your Fault, Pt. 2” back at #16. Sam Smith’s “The Thrill Of It All” (#13) and Chris Stapleton’s “From A Room, Vol. 2” (#18) are also able to re-enter the Top20. Last thing worth a mention is P!nk’s increase for “Beautiful Trauma” (18-12).

I like the current presentation. Looks good.
Tried something new with my weekly charts as well. To start the new year off fresh haha.

As for your single charts: many good tunes. Not too fond on your no. 1, but I like the other Bebe tracks in the chart. Also big woo for Anne-Marie and Cardi B 8-) 'Bartier Cardi' is a bopppp.

Hi Tansike :D

Happy new year. I hope you had a wonderful time bringing in 2018, and let's hope it can be a truly amazing year for all of us. :D

Ok, first of all i voted i like your format as you already have it. I think if you wanted to change it, you would be better to just change it. After all, it's your chart thread and if other people say they don't like it, then they've missed the point. For me, its all about the contents and seeing which songs you're enjoying the most. :wink:

I've always kept my chart simple on the surface but as you know my chart is colour coded and also utilises the small font for additional info. So when it comes to writing up a new chart if you feel it's too much then by all means strip that down ( :wink: :lol: ) but i personally love how you present your chart. 8-) :D

Speaking of contents, let's see whats happening in your first chart of 2018. :D

1 (3) Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors & Bebe Rexha – Home

I must revisit this song, i gave it a listen about two weeks ago but i didn't really click instantly and i've admittedly not returned since to see if it clicks with fresh ears.

4 (NEW) Imagine Dragons – Whatever It Takes

Wow, this is a surprise. For some reason i thought Whatever it takes had already been a hit in your chart. :oops: It's a good song but for me its the weakest of their singles from 2017. Thunder is quite comfortable their best single off their album although overall they've yet to better Radioactive.

5 (NEW) Sigrid – Strangers

Yay! Now this is amazing to see. Taking full advantage of what i call dry January (that first week of the new year before all the big hits start coming in the second week of the year :lol: ). As you already know i love Strangers and i'm still hopeful to see this become a big success in the coming weeks.

6 (12) Rita Ora – Anywhere *G*

That rebound. <3

8 (NEW) Eminem feat. Ed Sheeran – River

Have you heard Revival? I think the album for the most part is really great. I love a number of the tracks on the album but Like home has been my absolute favourite (its currently #1 in my chart :wink: ) and i would love to see this song become an official single.

12 (NEW) Sam Smith – One Last Song

It's not a patch on Too good at goodbyes but i do like this to some extent. It got to #19 but i suspect the song would've done much better had another singer been providing the vocals.

13 (NEW) P!nk – Beautiful Trauma

Gosh! :lol: All the hits are finally making a splash this week. I'm quite surprised this is only entering now but nonetheless amazing to see P!nk getting that chart entry.

34 (RE) Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line – Meant To Be

This has turned out to be quite the earworm for me. It got to #6 in my chart a few weeks back and has managed to stabilise pretty impressively. It's left to be seen how much longer this can remain in my chart.

I'm guessing all those christmas themed songs will all drop out next week so i'm curious to see how many new entries make your chart next week. Looks like tomorrow could be a big day for music, just got to hope the big names can deliver the goods.

First chart of the new year! Yay (Happy New Year)!

34 (RE) Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line – Meant To Be

Love the re-entry! I only recently discovered who sung this song (even though I should of been able to tell), and I really enjoy it. Surprised it didn't manage to hit the top10. Was the RE due to 'Home'?
How about you Get the F*** Out.

I had some time off lately and still didn't game, and when i started a few days ago, i fell asleep after a few minutes... :oops: Also, i really have to admit that i LOVE to watch someone else play games, no idea why, but it's how it is... and since my partner is a gamer, i often just spent HOURS just watching him instead of playing a game as well.

W O W !!! Sure... and, i think... it also may be a 'fresh-in-love'-thing, you know. I just thought about this lately and it really seems that everything (or much more than usual) is about HIM, which is normal at the beginning of a relationship (or also later in a good relationship, i guess?). I didn't have that for years, and i was always bored and kinda got my life together how it was, now i have someone who i really enjoy spending time with, watching him doing things, going out etc.
Does he usually play naked...? 'Cause that would certainly explain it ;) Kidding aside, I think I know what you mean - there's a couple of gamers on YouTube and Twitch I've enjoyed watching, and the commentary they provide while they play can turn a somewhat-boring/random game into a pretty entertaining viewing experience. If they're playing a game that I've already played, it's also fun to watch how their reactions/opinions might differ from mine.

Aw! That sounds pretty amazing, tbh - that you're into him that much and enjoy doing all kinds of things together that much. The rush <3 I can definitely understand how Ultra Moon can't compete with a funny, sexy, engaging new partner :lol: What's he been playing lately? I finally finished the main story of Ultra Sun and just dipped my toe in the post-game yesterday.

Tansike wrote:It was and it got me surprised :lol: Yes, i went with him & his family two or three times. My religion is... well, on paper it's actually evangelical-reformed (i hope that's the correct translation), while in fact i just believe in something ('God'), but i'm not that religious. What about you, if i may ask?
I was raised Catholic (church every Sunday and "religious education" class once each week until I had my Confirmation. I even played cello during Sunday mass when I was in high school - but that was mostly due to my parents' encouragement, and it helped the time pass more quickly) :lol: Religion's pretty absent from my life now (aside from celebrating Christmas, but that's more for fun/nostalgia's sake.) I'm not really spiritual at all, but I can understand/respect the important role that faith plays in people's lives - especially when life gets really rough, helping them feel less alone and giving them the strength to push onward.

Tansike wrote:100-200 are still lots of tracks IMO. Oh yeah, there are a few K-Pop artists who keep on charting on the iTunes chart all over the world, while J-Pop is rarely so successful/popular outside of Japan (or Asia overall). How many K-Pop songs do you have in your library?
That's a really interesting point, and I'm not sure why that's happened. I guess K-Pop labels just put more effort into giving their acts a more global presence, while J-Pop labels focus really hard on the one market where they're most likely to be successful? It looks like I've got about 60 K-Pop songs. I didn't realize J-Pop out-numbered K-Pop that much in my library, but I guess I've downloaded more full J-Pop albums (including a long Ayumi Hamasaki greatest hits collection that I've never actually played that much...)

Tansike wrote:Definitely! Anyways, if i start a day with thinking i smoke as less as possible, it turns out to be a more-than-average-smoking-day, so i really don't make a resolution there. Did you make some New Years resolutions? :)
Naahhhhh. I mean, there's the ever-present "go the gym/exercise more often and make healthier food choices"...but that's an ongoing struggle all year, every year. :lol:

Tansike wrote:WHAT :o Okay, that's shocking now, because i thought you LOVED the songs so it was kinda obvious to me you heard the full thing :oops: Aw, sad to hear this about "Beautiful Trauma", as it's definitely the better for me, but good news for Paloma of course.
Aw, sorry I mislead you there :oops: I'm enjoying The Architect, though! The length of the album is making it a little tough to form a firm opinion on every song, but there's definitely at least a handful of tracks that have caught my attention and kept me coming back several times already.

Tansike wrote:She really is. Since my chart started in 2007, i thought about making a best-of-decade list in 2016, not with songs/albums, but with artists, and Lindsey already was quite high there despite having made her debut in 2013. She even got much more points since then, as she released two albums ("Brave Enough" and the Christmas release "Warmer In The Winter"), so she's definitely one of the most successful artists of all time when it comes to my charts.
Bow down, bitches. 8-)

Tansike wrote:That's a good ranking! It's similar with me, a very few other tracks rank higher too, like "Don't Blame Me" and the obvious "Delicate".
So for you it's:

1.) "Don't Blame Me"
2.) "Delicate"
3.) "Look What You Made Me Do" VS "...Ready For It?"

Tansike wrote:Funny you think so as i was just thinking about that lately, but the final single ("Everyday") only came out early 2017, so it's not that long ago. Anyways, i'm quite sure we get something new in 2018, and i'm really looking forward to that new stuff! 8-)
Ah, yeah, it definitely feels longer than that! (Probably because "Everyday" flopped basically everywhere :oops: and I wasn't that crazy about it being a single in the first place...)

Tansike wrote:Haha... yeah, she did it with the actual Christmas boost. A Christmas #1 would have been sweet, but i think topping both charts a week after Christmas is a great feat as well. Well, some of the Christmas songs will suffer the usual Post-Christmas drop, but there will be a few smaller drops indeed :wink:
Holiday songs managing to linger in January is pretty rare, impressive stuff!

Tansike wrote:Thanks for checking it out. This was actually love on first play for me :o So i hope it may be a grower for you (if it actually sticks around with you). Yeah, there are some great scenes in the video, but Bebe is the real star there <3 I'm currently low-key stan a bit for her.
So basically, Bebe's replaced Gaga in your sexxx dreams...? ;)

Tansike wrote:Thanks a lot, really appreciated! Now, it doesn't take lots of time as it's already all there, and if a song re-enters, i can just copy the chartrun from my Excel as i collect them all in an Excel (i just need to search them there). I just made the decision that i keep it as it is for now, but i also keep on trying new things out (until i may find something that would fit as new presentation).
Ah, that's a smart way of doing it with Excel. Considering your poll is currently 100% in favor of "It's good how it is", it seems like you're making the right call.

Tansike wrote:btw... do you plan to create a Year-End Charts as well? That section is currently really hot and i'd love to see your own countdown :D
Naahhhhh - partially due to Photobucket blocking all free accounts (since that's what I always used to store my images/make my banners/etc.), but posting it in the past also felt like kind of a chore sometimes, where I had to dedicate time to it every single day in order to avoid falling way behind (making the banners for every song, writing the summary for every song, etc.) Thanks for asking, though!

:o Damn, your crush on Bebe is the real deal...
• In light of that impressive debut for "Whatever It Takes", could I possibly maybe get one of those chart-history-screenshots for Imagine Dragons?
• Jake's chart has gotten me into "Strangers" lately too! I don't expect it to reach quite as high as it has here, but it should become at least a minor Paulboard hit.
• YES @ that unexpected belated debut for "Beautiful Trauma" :o You've been charting the album for 12 weeks now, so were you just waiting for the new year to let this track enter your singles chart? Or did the song just click with you now?
• Lovin' that rebound for "Perfect For You."
• Ditto for that "Let Me Go" re-entry! I'd forgotten just how quickly it tumbled off your chart during its original run (from 9 - 16 - 27 - OUT) :o Hopefully it can rack up at least a few more weeks now...

Yet another chart that makes me feel right at home, Tansike! :D

Tried something new with my weekly charts as well. To start the new year off fresh haha.

As for your single charts: many good tunes. Not too fond on your no. 1, but I like the other Bebe tracks in the chart. Also big woo for Anne-Marie and Cardi B 8-) 'Bartier Cardi' is a bopppp.
Thanks a lot! :D
Oh yeah, i already saw it and liked it! Still need to catch up with some comments... :oops:

Aw... is there some hope left that "Home" may grow on you?
Very glad you enjoy the other Bebe tracks, and the other ones you mentioned. "Then" is still growing on me :o

JakeP wrote:Hi Tansike :D

Happy new year. I hope you had a wonderful time bringing in 2018, and let's hope it can be a truly amazing year for all of us. :D

Ok, first of all i voted i like your format as you already have it. I think if you wanted to change it, you would be better to just change it. After all, it's your chart thread and if other people say they don't like it, then they've missed the point. For me, its all about the contents and seeing which songs you're enjoying the most. :wink:

I've always kept my chart simple on the surface but as you know my chart is colour coded and also utilises the small font for additional info. So when it comes to writing up a new chart if you feel it's too much then by all means strip that down ( :wink: :lol: ) but i personally love how you present your chart. 8-) :D

Speaking of contents, let's see whats happening in your first chart of 2018. :D
Hey Jake :)

Thanks – same to you!

Ah, that’s a very good point, thank you. Well, of course if people would say I need to do it in a certain way, it wouldn’t mean I’d also do it that certain way. I just thought I try to get some feedbacks, as while there are always some comments about the current songs/albums, there are basically never any feedbacks about the presentation overall, until Magnus mentioned that my topic is running very slowly (and I got the same problem for nearly two weeks around Christmas/New Year). That was why I thought about that poll.

Ha, I got that hint :wink: Anyways, thanks a lot. Since the poll is 100% in favor of how it is, I also keep it as it is.

JakeP wrote:1 (3) Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors & Bebe Rexha – Home

I must revisit this song, i gave it a listen about two weeks ago but i didn't really click instantly and i've admittedly not returned since to see if it clicks with fresh ears.
I really love this at the moment. All three artists are doing a great job on “Home”, especially X Ambassadors and Bebe. Also, I already watched the movie twice, which was obviously helping as well.

JakeP wrote:4 (NEW) Imagine Dragons – Whatever It Takes

Wow, this is a surprise. For some reason i thought Whatever it takes had already been a hit in your chart. :oops: It's a good song but for me its the weakest of their singles from 2017. Thunder is quite comfortable their best single off their album although overall they've yet to better Radioactive.
Yeah, that entry seems a bit late, but somehow I missed a good opportunity to let it onto my chart, and then when it was December I thought I wait until the new year, otherwise this would have flopped I guess. It’s really hard for me to rank the “Evolve” singles as I think they’re all really good, but I agree when it comes to “Radioactive” still being their best single.

JakeP wrote:5 (NEW) Sigrid – Strangers

Yay! Now this is amazing to see. Taking full advantage of what i call dry January (that first week of the new year before all the big hits start coming in the second week of the year :lol: ). As you already know i love Strangers and i'm still hopeful to see this become a big success in the coming weeks.
True! I checked her out in December or probably even already in November, and while I already liked “Strangers” back then, I only added it to my library about two weeks ago. It’s a very well made pop song and here’s hope she’ll get some success on the official charts out there this year.

JakeP wrote:6 (12) Rita Ora – Anywhere *G*

That rebound. <3
Year-End / lack of new releases effect :cool:

JakeP wrote:8 (NEW) Eminem feat. Ed Sheeran – River

Have you heard Revival? I think the album for the most part is really great. I love a number of the tracks on the album but Like home has been my absolute favourite (its currently #1 in my chart :wink: ) and i would love to see this song become an official single.
Yes, I’ve heard it, and I’m positively surprised. I’m actually not really sure if I have ever heard an Eminem album in full, so “Revival” is most likely the first one, however, I like it more than expected. Especially the collaborations and the two songs he has a sample on are really good. “Like Home” definitely would be a great choice for a single :)

JakeP wrote:12 (NEW) Sam Smith – One Last Song

It's not a patch on Too good at goodbyes but i do like this to some extent. It got to #19 but i suspect the song would've done much better had another singer been providing the vocals.
Oh, does this mean you don’t like his vocals on this or in general? I think it’s good, but the album has even better songs. It’s actually the first time a single with Sam as a lead artist is missing my weekly Top10, and by the look of it it will also remain like this.

JakeP wrote:13 (NEW) P!nk – Beautiful Trauma

Gosh! :lol: All the hits are finally making a splash this week. I'm quite surprised this is only entering now but nonetheless amazing to see P!nk getting that chart entry.
:lol: Similar case to Imagine Dragons’ “Whatever It Takes”. Also, it still didn’t take off in most countries.

JakeP wrote:34 (RE) Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line – Meant To Be

This has turned out to be quite the earworm for me. It got to #6 in my chart a few weeks back and has managed to stabilise pretty impressively. It's left to be seen how much longer this can remain in my chart.

I guess it’s already Bebe’s biggest hit on your charts? It’s nice to see this being a success in several countries, a shame Europe is so much behind though :cry:

You’re right, most of the Christmas songs will leave the Top40 tomorrow. I’m really excited to see what 2018 will bring us musically, the year started quite good so far! :D

Glad to hear you love that re-entry for "Meant To Be". Yes, "Home" helped a lot and kinda also helped me to fall in love with Bebe again lately :)

No :lol: but clothes don’t stop me, you know :P :lol: Yeah definitely. Plus, sometimes he’s playing games I’d like to play as well, so it’s interesting to see how he’s doing it and how the game actually is – but the negative effect from this is, that I actually lose interest in these games as I think why should I play it as well when I just saw everything about it, so there’s not much more to discover anymore :oops:

Yes, I really enjoy that at the moment and I hope it keeps on going like this for as long as possible. He’s currently stanning for Skyrim, and he’s playing it on his Playstation, on Switch AND Playstation VR :lol: He never played Pokémon until he met me, so he even had a short phase when he was loving Pokémon Tekken. Congrats on finishing the main story – as you can imagine, I’m not much further than the last time :oops: How does your team look like now, if I may ask?

Oh wow… I never had to go to Church every sunday, though there was a phase when we did it as my mom was in something like a sect for some time (it was actually funny to admit though :lol: ). I also had “religious education” class though, but also not for very long, so I was raised quite neutral when it comes to religion. I think it’s important to get to know the religion, however, everyone should decide for themselves what they want to believe in or not.

phoenix98 wrote:That's a really interesting point, and I'm not sure why that's happened.

This may be the reason… also, to be fair, someone like Psy is maybe also responsible for making K-Pop even more popular on a worldwide base, while there has yet to come a big(ger) J-Pop hit which gets recognized by the whole world. Ah interesting. I think there are no J-Pop songs in my library, but a few K-Pop ones (like Psy, the two albums by Taeyeon, the last album by Girls’ Generation and that’s it iirc).

phoenix98 wrote:Naahhhhh. I mean, there's the ever-present "go the gym/exercise more often and make healthier food choices"...but that's an ongoing struggle all year, every year. :lol:

Good guessing, as that’s exactly how I’d rank the songs.
Fourth would be “I Did Something Bad”, “Call It Want You Want” may be fifth, followed by “End Game” :)
I really have to admit “Delicate” comes closer and closer to the first spot…

phoenix98 wrote:Ah, yeah, it definitely feels longer than that! (Probably because "Everyday" flopped basically everywhere :oops: and I wasn't that crazy about it being a single in the first place...)
Which song(s) would you have preferred as the final single? I thought this was a good-enough choice, and I absolutely loved the video! :D

phoenix98 wrote:Holiday songs managing to linger in January is pretty rare, impressive stuff!
Lindsey’s “Carol Of The Bells” may be a cover of a Christmas classic, but musically it’s so typical Lindsey and can be played outside of Christmas as well, so I expect this to stay on the chart for a little bit longer.

phoenix98 wrote:So basically, Bebe's replaced Gaga in your sexxx dreams...? ;)

Aw, that’s kinda sad, as I would have loved to follow your YEC. However, I completely agree that it takes a lot of time and you have to have time nearly every day. Every year I’d like to have my YEC prepared before starting it, but it always turns out completely different and I get a bit stressed then. Also, I love to follow all other YECs so this really takes time as well and this year I’m really not on point in doing comments :oops:

It is :cool: She’s having a good time on my chart at the moment… I’m really looking forward to “Expectations” (her next project). I hope the first song may be released soon as I need something fresh/new from her (I don’t count “Home” as her single somehow, even though her part is my most favorite one).

Sure! I love to post them, so here’s the Discography for Imagine Dragons. This time I decided to show the points as well :wink:

That’s nice to hear! Definitely a very well done pop song, and I’m looking forward to hear more from Sigrid :)

The first – it was on my ‘possible new entries’-list for some time, but it never took off on the official charts and December was so busy, so I thought I wait until the new year to let it onto my chart. I’m still not the biggest fan of that choice though, but it’s definitely a sooo much better choice than “Revenge”.

I’m getting back into “Waves” again lately, and somehow I completely missed it but “Perfect For You” has become her most successful song on my chart going by points :o

“Let Me Go” benefits from the Year-End Charts effect, as I’ve been listening to my own YEC every now and then lately and “Let Me Go” actually stood out. Such an uplifting pop track!

Thanks so much! :D

thanks so much for all comments

week 02/2018 – 11 january 2018 Across The Sea, Again

Image
    Singles Top40
We’re only two weeks into 2018 and following a very poppy number one a week ago, this week is already the first week with an impact from the symphonic metal genre. Last year spawned several hits for artists like The Dark Element, Tarja, Evanescence, Eluveitie, My Indigo (Sharon den Adel) or Arch Enemy, and while a few of them were already staples when it comes to my charts, there were also a few who never got an entry prior 2017. The latter is also the case with this weeks number one, as it’s the newest single by German-Norwegian symphonic metal band Leaves’ Eyes. The band was always familiar with me, but I never fully checked them out until now, as they’ll release their seventh studio album “Sign Of The Dragonhead” tomorrow, with “Across The Sea” being the second single of it and their very first notation on my charts ever, and it’s even having a top debut!

It doesn’t happen too often that there’s a remix or a re-release for a song which was already a big success, and that remix or re-release gives another boost to that song. But exactly this happens to Noah Cyrus’ “Again” this week, as Norwegian DJ and producer Alan Walker has released a remix for that track. The song jumps 7-2 in its 16th week and even re-peaks, as it peaked at number two in its second week.

There are a total of four debuts in the Top40 this week, so three more apart from Leaves’ Eyes’ top entry. Bruno Mars had a very moderate success so far when it comes to this third era for the album “24K Magic”, as none of the three singles were big successes on my charts, especially compared to his first two eras. This may change now as he gets his highest peaking single as a lead artist since “Gorilla” hit the Top3 over four years ago, as the new remix for his track “Finesse” arrives at #4 with the help of newcomer Cardi B. Rita Ora is having a great run, as she’s collecting her third Top10 hit in a row following “Your Song” and “Anywhere”, as the new song “For You” enters the chart at #9. It’s a collaboration with Liam Payne, who never reached the Top10 so far, and it’s the title track for the upcoming third Fifty Shades Of Grey movie. The last two movie title tracks weren’t big hits, with “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding peaking at #6 (but leaving the charts after just five weeks, being Ellie’s second least successful chart entry so far), and “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” by Taylor Swift & Zayn peaking at #14 (and leaving the charts after just two weeks). The fourth and final new arrival belongs to Justin Timberlake, who makes his comeback at #19 with “Filthy”, the lead single to his upcoming album “Man Of The Woods”. Shockingly, this is his very first Top20 entry since my charts started in 2007.

The rest of the best: “Home” by Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors and Bebe Rexha is back down 1-3, My Indigo’s “Out Of The Darkness” falls 2-5, Sigrid’s “Strangers” dips 5-6, Imagine Dragons’ “Whatever It Takes” descends 4-7 and Lindsey Stirling’s “Carol Of The Bells” dives 3-10. Anne-Marie has the very last entry in the Top10, as her “Then” improves 11-8, becoming her second Top10 hit as a lead artist following “Ciao Adios” (#3 in 2017) and her third Top10 appearance overall following “Rockabye” by Clean Bandit (#3 in 2016).

After a short visitation back in the Top10, Rita Ora’s “Anywhere” already goes back down 6-11. The song gets certified with Platinum this week, becoming Rita’s first Platinum certified release ever. “Regenbogen” by Vanessa Mai (10-12), “River” by Eminem featuring Ed Sheeran (8-14) and “Hey Hey Hey” by Katy Perry (9-18) are also leaving the Top10. As if last week wasn’t enough, Bebe Rexha is having another great week despite losing the top spot for “Home”. Her other two notations climb a lot, with “I Got You” going up 21-13 and “Meant To Be” jumping 34-27. “I Got You” also goes Platinum this week, which is also Bebe’s first Platinum certification ever. With another five Christmas songs leaving the chart, there are only two left, and both are by Lindsey Stirling, who is still charting with the already mentioned “Carol Of The Bells” and “Christmas C’mon”, which drops 17-30 for a eighth and most likely last week on the chart this season.

Last but not least, three re-entries made the Top40, with “Too Good At Goodbyes” by Sam Smith (#29), “Broken Glass” by Rachel Platten (#32) and “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran (#36).

Bebe Rexha’s “I Got You” is the biggest climber for a second week in a row, while Lindsey Stirling’s “Christmas C’mon” is the biggest loser this time.

    Album Top20
It’s a very quiet week when it comes to new albums, as there’s absolutely no new entry in the Top20 at all, but three re-entries. It could be similar over the next few weeks or even months, as the first half of a year is usually much less busier than the second when it comes to new albums. With this, it was quite easy for the “Bright” soundtrack to remain atop the charts for a second week, followed by Inna’s “Nirvana” which stays at number two too. Halsey makes the Top3 complete, as she rises 7-3 with “hopeless fountain kingdom”, which is quite a feat as it’s already charting for over 30 weeks and has been certified with 2x Platinum lately.

Bebe Rexha is having an even better week than the last time. While she’s celebrating lots of success on the Singles Top40, it’s similar on the Album Top20, as both of her EPs are back in the upper half, with “All Your Fault, Pt. 1” even reaching a new peak by climbing 11-4 and “All Your Fault, Pt. 2” coming back up 16-7. The first of them even goes Gold this week, which marks her first certification for an album or EP.

The rest of the best: Rachel Platten’s “Waves” is up 8-5, The Dark Element’s self-titled release slips 5-6, Eminem’s “Revival” goes down 3-8, followed by Taylor Swift’s “Reputation” (9-9) and “Warmer In The Winter” by Lindsey Stirling (4-10).

Speaking of Lindsey and Christmas albums, there’s only one more on the chart, and that’s “A Pentatonix Christmas” by Pentatonix (6-15). The ones by Gwen Stefani (#10) and Tarja (#20) leave the Top20. Two hit albums from last year are back on the chart, and that are “Evocation II: Pantheon” by Eluveitie (#12) and “÷” by Ed Sheeran (#16), with the third re-entry being Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic” (#17). Last but not least, “Synthesis” may be Evanescence’ worst-performing album so far, but it still goes Gold this week (14-18).
