Aww... i hope everything is fine now with your mom <3JakeP wrote:I backtracked as i thought i'd posted only a couple of weeks ago only to realise i've not posted in this thread for over a month. Mind you i was preoccupied with helping my mum after her operation in early January so a lot of my time last month was spent helping out, so not as much time on here. At least things are back to normal now.
Real life and especially things like these are always more important, so it's okay to step back a bit with UKMix during these times.
Hmmmmm.... We'll see! It obviously also depends on all other entries, and as if it's a strong month overall or not. I also plan to go through all entries later today. I'm excited, as i didn't take part last month or even the month before iirc. Excited for your entry... i'm always even more excited to hear the entires of members i really like on here (like yours or Mainshow)JakeP wrote:Oh Well, you never know. I might like this just as long as there aren't any of those growling vocals. Also i'm planning on going through all the entries this weekend when i will have a bit more time. I don't mean to plug my entry here (of course i do ) but the official music video for my entry was released two days ago and its stunning. Even i wasn't prepared for such a beautiful looking video considering its a dance track.
That's "In My Arms", which debuted exactly ten years ago and had a really strong chartrun (9-5-5-6-3-5-7-10-10-Out). There was just a weekly Top10 thenJakeP wrote:Aww, but Kylie still got as high as #2 which is amazing. What is Kylie's most successful single in your chart?
No, sadly not, not this time I read "Best Friend" was the song to the iPhone X ads so i thought this may have been the way how you discovered it. I also saw it's charting high in Belgium, but only after hearing it on the Game i mentioned. Sometimes it's really funny how people discover things, there are always so many ways...JakeP wrote:Ahh that's so cool. I thought it might've been the JakeP effect. I didn't sign up to the UK Mixtape game as it started when i was still struggling to find time to come on UK Mix. It's still amazing to see Best friend impacted here. I've been aware of the song for a few weeks after seeing the song #1 in Benjamin's dance genre chart, but i never got round to checking out the song. Then the song was #1 on Belgium iTunes which got me interested so then i checked it out on YouTube and a week later it entered my chart. I love the song even more now hence its climb into my top 5.
Which brings me to this weeks highlights.
Have you seen their performance on Jimmy Fallon? I love it!
Hopefully! I would love this to be a hit on other personal charts as well It's obviously nothing new or innovative, but it's just so incredibly catchy. And i love me some Noah, she's having an amazing run for me.JakeP wrote:1 (2) One Bit & Noah Cyrus – My Way
I should revisit this one. I didn't really get into this when i first heard the track so perhaps with fresh ears it'll click.
It really did! Hopefully the same happens with you Yes, it does... previously, "Let Me Go" was her highest peaking single with a #4 peak.JakeP wrote:3 (13) Hailee Steinfeld & BloodPop – Capital Letters
Wow So this really has grown on you. Does this make Capital letters Hailee's highest peaking single in your chart?
What an amazing trailer Thanks for posting! Need to watch the official video as soon as possible!JakeP wrote:5 (NEW) Marshmello & Anne-Marie – Friends
I've been listening to this track quite a few times this week so it's looking set for a decent chart entry for me this weekend. It's looking likely to be Anne-Marie's biggest hit since Rockabye, and the music video is coming tomorrow and it looks like it's gonna be great.
This is also her biggest hit since "Rockabye" on my charts, though she already collected some other great hits with "Ciao Adios" or "Then" here. She really has a lot of potential and i hope she releases a debut album (or at least EP) soon.
I know!! This is amazing and could do wonders on the contest. The second song called "Domino" is out now and it's also not bad, though "Monsters" still is much better. So fingers crossed they pick this as their entry this year. Saara will slay that stage I haven't heard the UK entry so far so i can't judge that one yet...JakeP wrote:9 (NEW) Saara Aalto – Monsters
I can't believe a song of this standard is only part of Finland's selection process. This is the type of pop anthem the UK should be sending to eurovision. Needless to say Monsters is so much better than the SuRie song Storm that is going to represent the UK. I can't see the UK doing that well this year. No change there then.

To be honest both of them are likely to already leave the charts next week as i keep on skipping them. While it was nice to get new tracks by both of the artists, i really also expected something better by both of them.JakeP wrote:32 (NEW) James Bay – Wild Love
40 (NEW) Calvin Harris feat. PartyNextDoor – Nuh Ready Nuh Ready
Neither of these are even close to making my new top 20. Wild love is easily the better of the two but after one play i was unconvinced (and that lyric video made my head hurt ) then a second play didn't really change that. Whereas the Calvin Harris song is just pure disappointment. I'm unsure what he's trying to achieve making music like this, i just want Calvin to go to making "songs".
