Ah, that's a fair point - she could easily pass for younger than her actual 26. Ha, you and your daddies, eh? Does this mean your partner is actually much older than he looks...?Tansike wrote:Yes, it really is. Well, I have no clue how a list of my most favorite videos ever would look like, as there’s none, so it could be Top20 or just Top30 or so… but’s it’s definitely one of my favorite ones. When I think about it, I’d say it’s even my most favorite video ever from Selena, though her videography isn’t the strongest sadly. That’s one point by growing up ‘with her’, but I also think she still has such a babyface which makes her look even younger than she is, and my age or older >>> younger
Inches? Of what? Haha… I don’t even think there’d be a Top10 of such a countdown to be honest… but… if 2019 is finished, I made ‘My Charts’ for 13 years (officially) and since I always wanted to do a countdown, I thought ‘13’ is a nice number (better than 12, 14 or so… and I missed to do it after ten years, and 20 years is too far away), so a countdown is currently planned for 2020 in celebration of these 13 years. Since it’s a celebration of ‘My Charts’, it will be based on my charts
Of height, of course! Or waistline, maybe. Nothing else, though! Ha, I've always heard 13 associated with bad luck, but I like the idea of you doing something different than the usual 10th, 15th, 20th anniversary.
I'd forgotten that it actually did far worse than "Maps" in several other markets! No. 27 in the UK, No. 62 in Australia...Tansike wrote:Oh, that’s cool for Maroon 5 – I actually had no idea “Animals” peaked that high in the US, so nice to know!
It's definitely a wild ride that most people will never get to experience, so they're lucky in that regard. I hope they get a fair share of the profits, though (it's not something like 95% goes to the label and the band has to split the remaining 5% among themselves) I don't think they often write or produce their own stuff either, which hurts how much they can continue to make off these songs in the future.Tansike wrote:I read that too How cruel is that… being able to dance like that, being so fancy and stuff, having so many fans and you’re not even allowed to do something / date someone Poor them. But on the bright side, they are famous, are world stars, still have a time of their lives and they most likely can live from that for the rest of their lives…
He does and every time he’s doing it when I’m with him, I’m impressed. I suck at dance (or at least I think I do ). Last year or at the beginning of this year, he listened to a song once, thought about a choreography and a few minutes later he already had one and that one got immediately stuck in his head. If I would try to think about a Choreography, I would forget it fast if I don’t repeat it over and over again, write it down or something
Damn, it's like he has a photographic memory for dance steps! I'm sure you can still impress him with some moves of your own, though Just maybe not on the dancefloor...
Excellent point! I guess you'll just have to start doing it every morning - lights on, windows open - until I get a chance to walk by myself to confirm.Tansike wrote::lol:
Well, how do you know?
Are they seriously calling "Lost In Japan" the second single now? I guess "Youth" and "Nervous" were just buzz-second-singles...?Tansike wrote:Yes, he did! And that’s so true. So they seem to promote the “Lost In Japan” remix with Zedd as the official second single now. And… what were “Youth”/”Nervous” then
I saw her name when I Googled the lyrics to "The Reckoning", since it marked who sings each part of the song.Tansike wrote:But how did you know that her name is Sharon if I may ask? And… when I read your comment yesterday I was like because I didn’t know you actually added those two songs to your library! That’s so great and makes me very happy! (Granted, I don't know how often you played them, but even if you never played them, adding them to your library is already an amazing sign for these songs <3)
I already hate you for it, tbh.Tansike wrote:Awwww noooo please not I’m sorry, but somehow my interest in her wasn’t here back then. It probably also didn’t help that it came out before I had Apple Music (iirc) and I’ve never been someone who checks out videos or so. I haven’t even watched the video for my own #1 yet, so if it wouldn’t be for streaming, I would’ve never heard it yet (ok, in a case like WT I would’ve bought it off iTunes… but still!) I guess I have to check it out now and in cases like this I hope it won’t be too good otherwise I’ll hate myself for not checking it out earlier
Thankfully, the UK seems to be on-board, since it's already gone Top 10 there (after "Girls" never made it higher than No. 22). I won't hold my breath for a hit in the US, though For some reason, she's always gotten the cold shoulder here (aside from "Black Widow," and I think that one's success had much more to do with Iggy being on a hot streak at the time).Tansike wrote:Same! It’s interesting how most people and even the GP thinks similar in Rita’s case. Here’s hope she may score another hit with “Let You Love Me” and I’m really looking forward to “Phoenix” now
I mean...it was an opportunity for her to showcase her voice...I guess? It never made my chart, though.Tansike wrote:And yet again – same! “Head Above Water” also kept on growing on me, sadly it will be a very busy week on my charts so #8 may be her peak for now. It’s nice seeing someone like her coming back with such a good track, and its performance on iTunes is very promising so far. I agree about her ballads - even though she’s mostly known for her uptempo, pop-rock (girlie) tracks, her ballads are often her real gems. What do you think about “Alice”?
I do like "Whatever It Takes" and "Born To Be Yours" (though neither hooked me quite as much as "Thunder"). I was pretty underwhelmed by/disinterested in both "Next To Me" and "Natural." "Zero" definitely feels like their poppiest offering in a while, so I can see why that would strike you as too "basic" Ha, speaking of "I See Fire," I think our contrasting reactions to that song parallel our feelings about "Alice"...Tansike wrote:Oh, now this is surprising to me! Better than “Whatever It Takes”, “Born To Be Yours” and “Natural”? :o I think it’s pretty… basic? At least compared to their other songs… but there's no anticipation for the movie from my side as i'm not familiar with it ( ) so there's that. It already happened in the past with myself that the anticipation to a movie helped for its soundtrack single, or watching a movie boosted a soundtrack single... a movie was actually the reason how Ed Sheeran got his very first hit on my charts!

• I was definitely blown away by how good Bradley sounds on "Shallow." I'd mostly just associated him with comedies, and had NO idea he can sing like that!
• I've never heard of Sophia Somajo before, but she and Alan Walker have created something pretty fabulous here!
• A bit bummed to see both "Head Above Water" and "Let You Love Me" leave the Top 10 already, but you did say it was a surprisingly competitive week.
• Lovin' that new peak for "N’oublie pas" thanks to the album effect!
• Looks like Dancing Queen did...OK? The idea of doing an entire covers album dedicated to a single act does strike me as a bit odd, especially when some of those hits are SO well-known in their original form (in addition to many other covers over the years). I get that it ties in well to her role in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, but it's a little hard for me to get truly excited about/immersed in this project. Most of her renditions just seem...fine?
Yet another tempting chart, Tansike!
