22 (NEW) Muse – The Dark Side
Chart Run: *22*- / 1w

I am on the fence about this, it's not a bad song, but there is something very NewRetroWave about this and I feel like Muse is trying to jump on that train.

^ It's actually the best song of the ones we already know from their upcoming album for me, but still much weaker than some of their earlier stuff. Will be interesting to hear how the whole album will sound like...

Hi Tansike :D

1 (NEW) Carrie Underwood – Love Wins

Wow, Carrie has done incredibly well to get a #1 debut this week. I love the chorus so much, it really sells the song to me and as such this also charted at #3 in my latest chart. :wink:

2 (3) Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry *P*

Extraordinary. <3 This is now spending its 21st week in my top 20 - just one more week and it will have equalled the all time chart record of 22 weeks spent on my chart; shared by Hello and Take me to church.

10 (RE) Troye Sivan – Bloom

Gosh, the album release really did boost your love for Bloom then. :P I listened to Troye's entire album via YouTube but i have admit, whilst i enjoyed the album tracks, i would've like a couple more bops.

15 (22) Calvin Harris & Sam Smith – Promises

Nice to see Calvin & Sam continuing their climb up the chart. The song was growing on me anyways but then the music video was released and i thought it was fabulous. <3

22 (NEW) Muse – The Dark Side

...and another chart with Muse entering. I wonder if the song would've had the same impact had it been released as the first single. It's still impressive to see Muse getting some love on UK Mix.

36 (NEW) Freya Ridings – Lost Without You

Aww i'm delighted to see Freya getting a chart debut here. <3 Whilst the song may have dropped out of my top 5 this weekend it's still amongst my favourite songs around at the moment.

Tansike wrote:Awww… now this makes me kinda happy to hear I’m not the only one with situations like this. True, and it definitely wasn’t the ‘normal’ meeting-the-parents-of-your-partner-situation, as we lived there for two weeks and so it was obvious that we couldn’t talk all the time and there ‘had’ to be situations like this. Haha, no, I already had some situations where it was clear I’m going on someones nerves. For example at work… I usually arrive here (‘here’ because I’m writing this at my work :oops: ) before 7am, which is very early, and my boss is usually that early as well. So when I arrive and she’s already here, I can already talk to her about lots of blablabla topics and many people (she included sometimes, but it still is kinda okay cause she knows how I am) can’t handle that early in the morning. I couldn’t handle it myself, but I just have to talk about whatever. Like what I saw when I drove to work. Or what happened. Or what came to my mind. Like really tiny things :oops: :oops: :oops:
:o You ARRIVE before 7:00am? Damn, so when do you wake up? I know you're quite stylish/fashionable, so you must have to budget a decent chunk of time to get ready in the morning too. When you say your boss is included sometimes, does that mean you're sh*t talking ABOUT your boss to her face first thing in the morning? :lol: On one hand, people should obviously consider themselves lucky that you open up to them like that, sharing all your thoughts and feelings so readily...but maybe not at 7:00am. :oops:

Tansike wrote:Actually, no, there were no certain tracks which stood out... but the slow tracks made better impressions on me than I remembered, as I always thought some of them were quite boring which was also the main reason why “Red” was my least favorite album from her so far. “Red” and “Speak Now” both actually made the impression of a strong body of work to me, they’re quite perfect as a whole and as they are. That was also the reason why I didn’t even listen to “Reputation” in full, because the tracks didn’t really belong together there, at least that’s how I felt it. Oh, I thought you added “Number 1 Angel” to your library especially because Charli was SMASHING on your charts for some time :o
As much as I love Red, it does have several super-slow songs that blur together a bit: "Treacherous," "All Too Well," "I Almost Do," "Sad Beautiful Tragic," etc.

Charli hadn't quite won me over enough at that point to check out a full album/mixtape of hers yet (and I didn't have Apple Music either) :lol: By the time Pop 2 dropped, I took the time to explore the whole thing (and was really glad I did! It's a bit hit-or-miss overall, but its high points are quite high for me).

Tansike wrote:Yay! I already saw her re-entries on your charts this week and wondered if our talking about her was the reason behind that :) Yes, “Never Forget You” was a huge smash on my charts and one of the very rare songs to get over 1,000 chart points. But I knew you weren’t the biggest fan of Zara, so everything is a plus for me, and a chart entry & Gold certification are definitely much better than no entry at all. Side note… but “Never Forget You” is not only one of the biggest chart hits, but also one of my absolute favorite songs overall (plus favorite videos too). Some of its lyrics were very fitting to me as it actually came out during a time when I first started to really think about breaking up with my ex… :oops:

And they both were very successful on mine :cry: It’s interesting how we have different opinions on these ‘new’ pop girls. You really love Dua’s album, but she’s actually the one who impressed me the least of these for example.
Now I've gotta ask: what are all the songs with 1,000+ points?

Ha, sad but true :lol: The announcement of Dua's upcoming Complete Edition and the release of "Want To" prompted me to re-visit her album over the weekend, and so much of it still sounds so good to me!

Tansike wrote:Yep, definitely. I don’t even remember the album tracks nowadays. “Try” and “Just Give Me A Reason” were awesome, but the other singles didn’t do much for me and I have to admit I don’t even remember its lead single… but I guess that must be “Blow Me”, right? :oops: Did you enjoy the other singles?
Aw, "Blow Me" was totally up my alley :lol: but I'm glad that/understand why she finally switched up her sassy-lead-single-formula with "What About Us." "Try" is actually my least favorite of that album's four main/international singles. :lol: :oops:

Tansike wrote:<3 who says I’m wearing something though? :P

Yeah. The intro is sooo beautiful to wake up to and once the song starts to ‘pick up’, you really get in a mood to go up.
:o :oops: :o :oops: :o :oops: :o :oops:

Tansike wrote:Thanks for checking out my latest #1! :)Amaranthe is well known in that genre for combining three vocal styles: clear female voice, clear male voice and male growls (the throat-y one). They are doing that on basically every song, which can be exhausting sometimes as I enjoy the female vocalist the most by far. The part you’ve mentioned (‘365 in a day…’) is my favorite part and is just SO good, which was the reason why this hit #1. Very happy to read your positive feedback for that song! :D
It's really cool that they've made that blend their signature style (even if it'd be nice to hear a bit more from the female member sometimes...) :lol:

Tansike wrote:It’s quite shocking how successful BTS are in the US compared to other countries, especially because it’s such a difficult market for foreign-language acts as you say. So you’re overall not the biggest BTS fan or you’re quite familiar with their stuff? “Idol” is such a guilty pleasure and it’s the first time I’ve started to really check them out, and my gosh, their dancing skills are sexy af :o
I have a handful of random singles from BTS, but "DNA" and now "IDOL" are their only Top 10 hits on my chart so far. K-Pop choreography is UNREAL! The complexity and dedication to their dance routines completely puts Western pop groups to shame.

Tansike wrote:Aww. So this means you also didn’t enjoy last years “Find You”? I think Nick is releasing some nice tunes and “Right Now” could end up as my fave of him :oops:
"Find You" didn't do much for me at the time (peaked at No. 15 and fell off after only 2 weeks), but I should re-visit it again now. I didn't realize/expect that "Right Now" stood out from his other stuff THAT much for you!

Now to see if "Love Wins" will fare any better. I'm not quite as hooked on it as you (and others) seem to be, but it definitely does more for me than "The Champion" or "Cry Pretty," at least!
• You weren't kidding about "Right Now" having a big impact on you! Has Nick had any other Top 10's here besides this, "Find You," and "Close"?
• A bit bummed that a rebounding Sweetener blocked Bloom, but its effect on your singles chart is pretty awesome - especially that MUCH better new peak for the title track!

Yet another chart that's a clear winner, Tansike! :D

I am so glad we agree on "Sweetener". It is indeed a good album and tbh, I somehow don't mind the Pharrell tracks on the album anymore but "die vegetieren so vor sich hin"... it could have been the record of the year but it just ended up being a cohesive body of work with very few absolutely amazing highlights.

Carrie's back to slay on your chart haha. - Just listened to the song because of the link you provided (btw, that's really a nice idea)... it's so effing cheesy and sugar-y, I think my teeth hurt... if I hear about "we are all sisters and brothers" in a song, I immediately have to think about church and stuff.. anyway, the melody is quite nice and I appreciate the effort. It's a very important message to sing about but after all, the song itself ain't my cup of tea.

Northward's great debut isn't that surprising even though I think #5 is quite high for a solid but mediocre effort.

Amazing re-entries for Troye! I am surprised the songs didn't do better on your chart. They all deserve some love.

Hey Jake :D

I have to admit Carrie was very lucky with that week as it wasn’t very competitive. I’m very excited for her upcoming album which comes out this week, as “Storyteller” (the previous album) is one of my most favorite albums ever. Already saw her debut on your charts and was shocked in a positive way, have to leave a comment as soon as possible :wink:

Amazing and well deserved <3 As you can see, her run on my charts is also very outstanding.

It did – finally! :o I get what you mean as I feel similar, but I still enjoy “Bloom” a lot and it’s definitely his best release so far for me. Also, “Bloom” is actually in my Top3 together with “My My My” and “Plum” now, and I’m even surprised how it didn’t click with me earlier…

JakeP wrote:15 (22) Calvin Harris & Sam Smith – Promises

Nice to see Calvin & Sam continuing their climb up the chart. The song was growing on me anyways but then the music video was released and i thought it was fabulous. <3
Same here. The track keeps on growing on me and could turn into a surprise hit for both on my charts.

JakeP wrote:22 (NEW) Muse – The Dark Side

True. This is probably the best thing from their upcoming album so far, but it’s still far behind the stuff they released years ago.

JakeP wrote:36 (NEW) Freya Ridings – Lost Without You

Aww i'm delighted to see Freya getting a chart debut here. <3 Whilst the song may have dropped out of my top 5 this weekend it's still amongst my favourite songs around at the moment.
<3 I knew you would love to see that entry, though I feel kinda ‘sorry’ that she didn’t enter my charts at a higher position. But it’s definitely not over yet :wink:

Usually I do, yes. It really depends… like today, I wanted to go up at 5:07am (yes, I’m a nerd and can’t put my alarm clock on straight numbers :oops: ) but didn’t really go up until 5:45… then I had to prepare myself (taking shower and stuff) and left at around 6:25. I arrived in the office at 6:45 then. Aw, thank you… I don’t even see me as stylish/fashionable at all (I’m probably just showing the best of me on social media :lol: ). Ah no, sorry, I meant she’s included into the bunch of people who can’t handle my ‘blablablas’ early in the morning all the time :oops:

phoenix98 wrote:As much as I love Red, it does have several super-slow songs that blur together a bit: "Treacherous," "All Too Well," "I Almost Do," "Sad Beautiful Tragic," etc.

It's a bit hit-or-miss overall, but its high points are quite high for me).
But you still enjoy them, do you? Because previously I didn’t enjoy most of them, but now I did. It makes the album very cohesive.

Oh wow, I had no idea! I think “Number 1 Angel” is quite similar to “Pop 2” so if you liked one of them, you could like the other one as well.

phoenix98 wrote:Now I've gotta ask: what are all the songs with 1,000+ points?

Ha, sad but true :lol: The announcement of Dua's upcoming Complete Edition and the release of "Want To" prompted me to re-visit her album over the weekend, and so much of it still sounds so good to me!
I won’t reveal the exact points now but here are all songs with 1,000+ chart points:

Spoiler:
Adele – Someone Like You (2011)
Anette Olzon – Lies (2014)
Ariana Grande feat. Zedd – Break Free (2014)
Ashley Tisdale – Be Good To Me (2008)
Ashley Tisdale – Suddenly (2008)
Bruno Mars – Locked Out Of Heaven (2012)
Calvin Harris feat. Ellie Goulding – I Need Your Love (2013)
Ed Sheeran – I See Fire (2014)
Ellie Goulding – Burn (2013)
Kerli – Army Of Love (2010)
Kerli – Walking On Air (2008)
Kerli – Zero Gravity (2012)
Lady Gaga – Bad Romance (2009)
Lana Del Rey – Born To Die (2011)
Lana Del Rey – Video Games (2011)
Lily Allen – Not Fair (2009)
Lindsey Stirling – Crystallize (2013)
Lindsey Stirling feat. Lzzy Hale – Shatter Me (2014)
Loreen – Euphoria (2012)
Miley Cyrus – See You Again (2008)
Miley Cyrus – The Climb (2009)
Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball (2013)
Nightwish – Élan (2015)
OneRepublic – Counting Stars (2013)
Selena Gomez & The Scene – Love You Like A Love Song (2011)
Zara Larsson & MNEK – Never Forget You (2015)


So that are 26 songs in nearly 12 years of ‘My Charts’. What’s interesting is that the last song which reached that milestone came out in 2015, so none of the 2016-2018 releases made it so far. 2013 spawned the most 1,000-hits with five.

Also, Kerli and Miley are tied with three songs each as the ones with most songs over 1,000 points, though Kerli even nearly has a fourth as “Feral Hearts” from 2016 currently has 999 points and may get there with the upcoming album release.

Some of them are even surprising to me, like Bruno’s “Locked Out Of Heaven”. While big artists like Katy Perry or Rihanna have none.

Oh, good for Dua! I’ve read about that edition too and it’s definitely a cool thing for her fans & to make the gap between now and her next album a little bit shorter.

phoenix98 wrote:Aw, "Blow Me" was totally up my alley :lol: but I'm glad that/understand why she finally switched up her sassy-lead-single-formula with "What About Us." "Try" is actually my least favorite of that album's four main/international singles. :lol: :oops:
Ah… so it was a hit for her on your charts? :) Yes, I liked her change to another lead-single-formula and it really worked with “What About Us”. I’m surprised to hear your thoughts about “Try”. Its video alone is already so good, but the song also is quite powerful to me. JGMAR remains my favorite song of that era though.

phoenix98 wrote:It's really cool that they've made that blend their signature style (even if it'd be nice to hear a bit more from the female member sometimes...) :lol:
True. I don’t think there’s another band doing something similar. It’s also cool to see it working well for them on a commercial basis. Last week I completely forgot that there was a ballad on their last album where only the female singer sung, so they actually already tried this out :)

phoenix98 wrote:I have a handful of random singles from BTS, but "DNA" and now "IDOL" are their only Top 10 hits on my chart so far. K-Pop choreography is UNREAL! The complexity and dedication to their dance routines completely puts Western pop groups to shame.
Ah okay :) It really is! :o I wonder how long it took them to get to a level like that :o

It really does at the moment and i’m quite confident to say it will become his first certified single ever :oops:

Yes, Carrie was lucky having released in a less competitive week. I’m already quite over the song and “Love Wins” will have a considerably big drop from #1 this week. But the album is out very soon, so it could go up again.

Yes, “Levels” and “Jealous” also made the Top10, though “Levels” left the charts after four weeks. Here's Nick's discography for all his entries so far, and as you can see, he may have some Top10 peaks, but all but “Jealous” didn’t stay on the charts for too long. In fact, his second lowest peaking entry so far is his most successful one to date.

I’m finally into “Bloom” (the song) :cry: I can’t believe the album release had such a strong effect on a song which I didn’t really enjoy previously. Ariana & Troye are both going really strong at the moment and it looks they will battle for the #1 this week as well.

Thanks so much :D

Ah i feel completely similar with "Sweetener"! At first i was annoyed by the Pharrell tracks but i'm fine with them now, but as you say, they're just there. One can listen to them but they have zero effect on me. It definitely would have been a huge disappointment without the three singles, but these are just so amazing that it makes the whole album good again.

Are you familiar with Carrie? Haha... i get what you mean, but i still like it :oops: Glad you checked it out!

Looking forward to Northward's next song, as i'm already completely over "While Love Died" and their second week drop will be quite shocking for a NW-related project :oops:

They do get some love now <3 Apart from "My My My", none of the singles really impressed me so far, but i'm very glad the album release changed that. Very glad to hear you're liking them too :)

thanks so much for all comments

My Charts - week 37/2018 – 13 september 2018 - calm before the storm
.
    Singles Top40
    Image Image Image
Spoiler:
It’s the calm before the storm… as while there were a few new releases this week, some highly anticipated new releases are expected to arrive on the next charts and will definitely bring lots of changes into the Top40. As for this week, there’s also a new entry atop the charts and it’s writing a little bit of history. For the first time ever since streaming took over my charts over three years ago, a song enters my charts based on being solely released on YouTube. This used to happen before the streaming era as well, but didn’t happen ever since and especially not atop the charts. The lucky one is Romanian dance-pop queen Inna, who has released the video for the song “No Help”. It’s her 18th chart entry and also the 18th Top10 peak, plus it’s her third chart topper following “More Than Friends” in 2013 and “Heaven” in 2016.

Ariana Grande’s “No Tears Left To Cry” stays a second week at number two, having nearly made it back to the top. Her other charting single “God Is A Woman” also returns to the Top5 (6-5).

Other new and re-entries this week: Noah Cyrus keeps on releasing singles which are either hit or miss. Her song “Live Or Die” makes it to a third week on the charts (40-37), but there’s already a follow-up called “Mad At You”, a collaboration with Gallant. The song makes a very strong arrival at #3, becoming her third Top3 hit following the Platinum certified “Again” (#2) and her number one single “My Way”. It’s already her tenth chart entry in nearly two years, with half of them having a peak in the Top20 and the other half having peaked below the Top20. Being described as ‘an American contemporary Christian music singer-songwriter’, Lauren Daigle makes her charts debut with “You Say” at #15. “Electricity” enters the charts at #24 for the all star collaboration between Silk City, Dua Lipa, Diplo and Mark Ronson. Following “7 Years” (#13 in 2016) and “You’re Not There” (#22 in 2017), Danish group Lukas Graham get their third chart entry as their new single “Love Someone” is new at #36 as the fifth and final new entry of the week.

Apart from the new entries, there are also four re-entries in the Top40. It’s only September, but Violinist Lindsey Stirling is already preparing herself for the upcoming Christmas season. Following last years success of her Christmas album “Warmer In The Winter”, she decided to do a re-release which will come out next month, with the pre-order being released last Friday. The announcement alone is the reason for the re-entry of “Carol Of The Bells” (#23), which stands a big chance of becoming the Christmas number one song for yet another year. German-Spanish singer Alvaro Soler has released his second album which brings back the single “La cintura” (#29). Also following an album release, MNEK owns two re-entries this week. Even though the debut album by the singer-songwriter doesn’t have the highest debut on the album charts this week, his singles “Tongue” (#27) and “Colour” with Hailee Steinfeld (#30) are able to pull little comebacks.

Other talking points this week: Carrie Underwood’s “Love Wins” has a rather big drop from the top spot as the track falls 1-8. Meanwhile, a second week into the album release, Troye Sivan still does very well and both, “Bloom” (10-7) and “My My My!” (11-10) reach new peaks this week as well. The latter becomes his third Top10 this year, with the other one being “Dance To This” (24-33). The boost from Troye Sivan’s album really reminds of Shawn Mendes’ album release from earlier this year. The Canadian singer also already had a few chart entries and only one Top10, but following the album release, he scored two other Top10 hits and became as successful as never before. Jain’s “Alright” (13-11) and Calvin Harris & Sam Smith’s “Promises” (15-12) both reach new peaks just outside the Top10 too. Also worth a mention but due to something negative is Northward’s “While Love Died”. The track just entered the charts inside the Top5 a week ago but already drops 5-19 this week, which is quite shocking considering how well other similar projects such as The Dark Element, Auri or My Indigo did this year.

Nicki Minaj’s “Ganja Burn” is the biggest climber (19-14) while Muse’ “The Dark Side” is the biggest loser this week (22-38).

My Charts - week 37/2018 – 13 september 2018 - calm before the storm
.
    Album Top20
    Image Image Image
Spoiler:
Ariana Grande and Troye Sivan both had the most successful albums for yet another week, and it wasn’t even a competition compared to the others. Looking at the Singles Top40, it’s probably not even the biggest surprise. In the end, it was Ariana who won the battle again, which gives “Sweetener” a third week atop the charts, making it only the fourth album to do so this year. Troye’s “Bloom” therefor spends a second week at number two.

Rounding up the Top3 is the first of five new entries. Beyond The Black is a German symphonic metal band, who have released their third album “Heart Of The Hurricane” two weeks ago. It becomes their very first chart notation by arriving at #3.

Other new entries this week: Alvaro Soler’s second album “Mar de colores” is new at #4, which is four spots higher than the debut and peak position of his first album “Eterno Agosto”. Interestingly, “Eterno Agosto” debuted in the exact same week three years ago. Singer-songwriter MNEK finally gets his first entry on the album charts as his debut release “Language” is new at #9. Also doing her chart debut is Lauren Daigle, as her second studio album “Look Up Child” debuts at #13. It’s likely to go up in the upcoming weeks considering her first single notation “You Say” just arrived now and keeps on making a good impression. The fifth and last new album of the week belongs to Irish musician Hozier. His self-titled debut album peaked at #6 in early 2015 and spawned the hit “Take Me To Church”, which was a massive hit all over the world. Unfortunately, it got quiet rather fast around him and his new EP “Nina Cried Power” also has a rather weak start at #16.

Other talking points this week: It’s a good week when it comes to certifications. German Schlager-pop singer Vanessa Mai gets her second album certification as Schlager goes Gold after six weeks in the Top5 (3-5). Also going Gold is Tarja’s live release “Act II”, which even returns into the Top10 this week (12-8). All of her 12 chart entries on the album charts are at least Gold certified now. Last but not least, Bebe Rexha’s “Expectations” goes Platinum (11-12). It’s only the second album being released in 2018 to do so. Finally, also worth a mention, Sophie Hunger’s “Molecules” (6-18) and Eminem’s “Kamikaze” (9-18) just debuted in the Top2 on the official Swiss Album Charts, but both have big drops on my charts.

It really depends… like today, I wanted to go up at 5:07am (yes, I’m a nerd and can’t put my alarm clock on straight numbers :oops: ) but didn’t really go up until 5:45… then I had to prepare myself (taking shower and stuff) and left at around 6:25. I arrived in the office at 6:45 then. Aw, thank you… I don’t even see me as stylish/fashionable at all (I’m probably just showing the best of me on social media :lol: ). Ah no, sorry, I meant she’s included into the bunch of people who can’t handle my ‘blablablas’ early in the morning all the time :oops:
Ha, that's a really cute quirk! You say "nerd," I say "adorkable" ;) I'm basically the opposite: I try to make sure that all my posts are submitted at times that end in 0 or 5 (and the same goes for sending emails) :lol: Well, since she hasn't fired you yet, I guess she doesn't mind your "blablablas" THAT much (or you're such a valuable asset to the team that she's willing to put up with almost anything from you...)

Tansike wrote:But you still enjoy them, do you? Because previously I didn’t enjoy most of them, but now I did. It makes the album very cohesive.

Oh wow, I had no idea! I think “Number 1 Angel” is quite similar to “Pop 2” so if you liked one of them, you could like the other one as well.
Eh, I can appreciate "All Too Well" and "I Almost Do"..."Treacherous" is OK...but "Sad Beautiful Tragic" would rank toward the very bottom of Red for me/I don't think it would've been a loss to cut it.

Tansike wrote:I won’t reveal the exact points now but here are all songs with 1,000+ chart points:
Wow, Queen Kerli tied for the most entries on that list despite only having one full album (so far) - AND she's just one point away from having the top honor all to herself! #icon

I don't keep an ongoing/all-time point system (aside from certifications), but "Break Free" and "Love You Like A Love Song" were massive hits for me too. Cute to see Lily's "Not Fair" make the list - that one's SUCH cheeky fun! :lol: The post-2015 dry spell you mentioned is interesting. Is it just a matter of not enough time having passed for songs to rack up that many points, or has it been somewhat of a drought for music that deeply connects with you? Bit of both, I guess? Are any hits from 2016-today even close to the 1,000 mark (aside from "Feral Hearts")?

Tansike wrote:Ah… so it was a hit for her on your charts? :) Yes, I liked her change to another lead-single-formula and it really worked with “What About Us”. I’m surprised to hear your thoughts about “Try”. Its video alone is already so good, but the song also is quite powerful to me. JGMAR remains my favorite song of that era though.
Yeah, I think I'm in a VERY small minority for not being drawn to "Try." Just looking at the Truth About Love singles:

"Just Give Me A Reason" = No. 3 peak | 14 weeks total | [P]
"Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" = No. 4 | 10 wks | [P]
"True Love" = No. 5 | 7 wks | [G]

Damn, I forgot that "Try" never even charted... :oops: :oops: :oops: :lol:

In light of that juicy tidbit you shared about your usual nighttime apparel, we should definitely arrange a slumber party ASAP ;) Or you should start sharing more "just woke up" selfies...

Tansike wrote:Ah okay :) It really is! :o I wonder how long it took them to get to a level like that :o
Right? It seems like the choreography would take FOREVER to learn (and get the entire group in perfect sync too), yet they still pull off brand-new routines for each video!

Tansike wrote:Yes, “Levels” and “Jealous” also made the Top10, though “Levels” left the charts after four weeks. Here's Nick's discography for all his entries so far, and as you can see, he may have some Top10 peaks, but all but “Jealous” didn’t stay on the charts for too long. In fact, his second lowest peaking entry so far is his most successful one to date.
Ah, so his songs that peaked between No. 10 - No. 20 actually lasted quite a bit longer than the ones that peaked even higher! Also somewhat surprising that "Chains" couldn't manage a cert despite lasting almost 20 weeks total.

Tansike wrote:I’m finally into “Bloom” (the song) :cry: I can’t believe the album release had such a strong effect on a song which I didn’t really enjoy previously. Ariana & Troye are both going really strong at the moment and it looks they will battle for the #1 this week as well.
Guess it was just a late bloomer for you. ;)

• You really do love songs with plenty of references to "self-love," eh? :wink: Zara's "Only You", your new No. 1, and I'm sure there's at least one more that I'm forgetting...
• Fantastic to see "Bloom" AND "My My My!" still climbing to new peaks!
• Aw, I would've loved an even stronger start for "Electricity"...but given your lack of enthusiasm for much of Dua's album, I guess I should be pretty happy with this debut. :lol:

Yet another chart that stands on its own, Tansike! :D

<3 Love that ‘adorkable’ <3 :oops: Oh wow, really? I never noticed it. Like, you’re trying to do the same on UKMix or is it just a huge coincidence that your post was made at 6.00pm (UKMix time)? :o Haha… I think it’s both.

phoenix98 wrote:Eh, I can appreciate "All Too Well" and "I Almost Do"..."Treacherous" is OK...but "Sad Beautiful Tragic" would rank toward the very bottom of Red for me/I don't think it would've been a loss to cut it.
Ah ok, makes sense. I think “Sad Beautiful Tragic” is also my least fave of them all. “Treacherous” was the one I used to skip back then but it grew on me.

Are any hits from 2016-today even close to the 1,000 mark (aside from "Feral Hearts")?
Well, Kerli currently has 14 chart entries on my Singles Charts, with five of them being collaborations with other artists (so these are on other albums or on none) and another seven are stand alone singles… so only two of these singles were on albums :lol: As I told you in your topic, there were some scrapped projects from her, but she still managed to release two singles from a scrapped album in 2010/2012 (which both have crossed 1,000 points).

Glad to hear this about “Break Free” and especially “Love You Like A Love Song”. That one was so good back then and I still like it a lot. I still remember how I came home from vacation, had jetlag and woke up at 2.00am and started to watch the video non-stop as it just came out <3 Lily’s “Not Fair” also has a special place in my heart and it’s definitely among my all-time-faves, so I’m glad this also was so successful on my charts. Hmm… the main problem is that in 2015 I discovered Apple Music and I am able to discover much more music than I did before that. For example, in 2014, 300 different songs made it onto my singles charts, this year I’m already at 360 different songs, so it got more difficult for a song to a) get to 1,000 points as there’s much more competition and b) due to lots of competition, it’s also more difficult for a song to get my attention for long enough and I’m even moving on faster emotionally.

Looking at how it’s doing at the moment, I honestly think Ariana’s “No Tears Left To Cry” will be the next song to cross 1,000 points. Looking through my excels, Kerli’s “Spirit Animal” (2016, 816 pts), Lady Gaga’s “Million Reasons” (2016, 852 pts), Selena Gomez’ “Kill Em With Kindness” (2016, 793 pts), Clean Bandit & Zara Larsson’s “Symphony” (2017, 741 pts) and Noah Cyrus & XXXTentacion’s “Again” (2017, 756 pts) are the ones I found since 2016 which have a lot of points as well, though most of them will never reach 1,000 points. Kerli with an album release boost and Gaga/Selena with future concert effects could do it.
side note: This may be the first time I’m revealing exact chart points :lol: I feel like the German Charts which never reveals its sales :lol:

Oh, even “True Love” went Gold :o At least “Just Give Me A Reason” was the most successful one of the bunch :cool:

that’s all I can say, you make me blush! :lol:

phoenix98 wrote:Right? It seems like the choreography would take FOREVER to learn (and get the entire group in perfect sync too), yet they still pull off brand-new routines for each video!
True. That’s absolutely impressive. But then, I remember reading somewhere that their contracts are very strict, so imagine they really have to spend lots of time to practice. Anyways, the “Idol” video and some of their performances actually made me think about trying to dance as well :lol:

phoenix98 wrote:Ah, so his songs that peaked between No. 10 - No. 20 actually lasted quite a bit longer than the ones that peaked even higher! Also somewhat surprising that "Chains" couldn't manage a cert despite lasting almost 20 weeks total.
Yes. This was the chartrun for “Chains”: 29-26-23-38-Out-RE 31-28-25-19-*16*-21-26-24-31-34-32-36-29-34-Out
So even with 18 weeks on the charts and a #16 peak, most of its weeks were quite low which is why it’s uncertified. But it’s quite near to a certification.

phoenix98 wrote:Guess it was just a late bloomer for you. ;)
It was – but better late than never :D

:lol: Damn, I didn’t even think about this yet, but you’re right! “Hands To Myself” by Selena or “Love Myself” by Hailee would be two other examples :lol:

Yes, the album release really made me love those singles. I think these are their peaks now but considering Troye only had one Top10 hit before the album release (“Dance To This”) and now he has three is quite amazing. It’s even funny to me as the exact same happened to Shawn Mendes this year, who scored his very first Top10 hit with “In My Blood”, and the follow-ups didn’t do well until the album dropped and he got two more Top10s at once.

“Electricity” is really disappointing to me, sorry :( It doesn’t even have to do with Dua, the track itself just lacks something for me and this #24 entry was actually better than it deserved looking back at it :oops:

Thank you :D

It's quite bland and they have already released a new single. I thought Tansike would love the track a bit more but I totally understand why it fell that hard.

---

OMG; YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
BEYOND THE BLACK's new record debuted on your chart and it got a great new entry! This is excellent and totally flawless! - I mean, obviously, they are not as good as WT, NW, Epica or even Delain yet but they sound so freaking good and they have so much potential. Their album is still on heavy rotation on my iTunes and iPod! I would be deliriously happy to see it becoming a minor hit on your chart!

OMG; YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
BEYOND THE BLACK's new record debuted on your chart and it got a great new entry! This is excellent and totally flawless! - I mean, obviously, they are not as good as WT, NW, Epica or even Delain yet but they sound so freaking good and they have so much potential. Their album is still on heavy rotation on my iTunes and iPod! I would be deliriously happy to see it becoming a minor hit on your chart!
"While Love Died" has some nice parts but yes, overall it's quite bland. The second single also doesn't do much for me, sadly :(

Haha i knew you would love that entry for Beyond The Black! Especially the first half of the album is quite good, its title track is by far my favorite song. Unfortunately, i think the second half is just solid, so i'm not too sure how their chartrun will look like over the next weeks.

thanks so much for all comments

My Charts - week 38/2018 – 20 september 2018 - they’ll bring The Reckoning
.
    Singles Top40
    Image Image Image
Spoiler:
As expected, this week has lots of new arrivals on the Singles Top40, including one of the most anticipated new singles of the year. It’s been nearly exactly five years since Dutch symphonic-rock band Within Temptation has released “Paradise (What About Us?)” featuring Finnish singer Tarja (Turunen) as the lead single of their last album “Hydra”. It went Platinum and was followed by four more singles, three of them went Platinum too, plus the album was certified with 3x Platinum, being one of the most successful albums ever. After a very long break and lead singer Sharon den Adel’s solo project ‘My Indigo’, Within Temptation are finally ready to return as they have released “The Reckoning”, the lead single of their upcoming seventh studio album “Resist”, which still comes out later this year. The track features Papa Roach singer Jacoby Shaddix and to no ones surprise, it immediately tops the charts this week. It’s Within Temptation’s sixth chart topper and their 14th chart entry in total, though six of these chart entries were released prior my chart came out and made it onto the Top40 following a concert effect in early 2014. “The Reckoning” has gathered more than 100 plays since its release last Friday, making it one of the most played track in a single week this year.

A second new entry made a big impression as well, as Lana Del Rey also released a new single and as usual, the singer gets a very high debut. The song is called “Mariners Apartment Complex” and enters the charts at #3 as Lana’s 15h entry since her breakthrough nearly seven years ago. Lana has one of the most impressive discographies so far, as all of her first 12 releases made it to number one. Inna makes the Top3 complete, as her former top hit “No Help” dips 1-2.

Other new and re-entries this week: A third new entry made the Top10, coming from Nicki Minaj. The rapper has released the video for “Barbie Dreams”, which is new at #10. It’s already her eighth chart entry this year (including the featurings), with all but one making the Top10. Therefor, it ties 2012 as her year with the most chart entries so far. Back in 2009, a German rock-pop band called Eisblume appeared and immediately scored a big hit with their debut single “Eisblumen”, which topped the charts for four weeks and even reached the Top3 in Germany. It was followed by three other Top10 hits, including another #1 single called “Louise”. All these years later, their lead singer and frontwoman Sotiria has decided to go solo and teamed up with German singer Unheilig. Their collaboration called “Hallo Leben” enters the charts at #14. Three spots lower there’s another collaboration, and a very interesting one. Country legend Dolly Parton and Australian singer-songwriter Sia have teamed up on the track “Here I Am” (#17). Yet another start in the upper half goes to Scottish singer-songwriter Amy MacDonald, who is preparing the release of her first best of “Woman Of The World”. Its lead single and title track arrives at #19, which continues the streak of peaking lower with each release as it’s her lowest peaking track to date.

Six debuts are done, still five more and two re-entries to go, which all landed in the lower half of the Singles Top40. Dolly Parton is not the only legend to enter the charts this week, as R&B diva Mariah Carey also owns one of the new entries. Her buzz single for her upcoming new studio album is called “GTFO” and is new at #24. Shockingly, it’s only her third chart entry to date, following “I Want To Know What Love Is” (#10 in 2010) and “All I Want For Christmas Is You” (#2 in 2016). Mariah is closely followed by fellow R&B singer Ciara, who gets her third entry this year with the new single “Dose” (#25). Northward just experience a huge drop as “While Love Died” leaves the Top40 completely after being placed at #19 a week ago, and its follow-up “Get What You Give” is only able to debut at #27. 2018 has been a great year for Khalid, as he was featured on five songs so far, including the Gold certified “Youth” (Shawn Mendes) and the Top10 success “Lovely” (Billie Eilish). It’s finally time for the singer to earn his very first notation as a lead singer and on his own, as “Better” arrives at #36. Last but not least, even with an involved superstar like Bruno Mars, the single “Wake Up In The Sky” by Gucci Mane featuring Kodak Black barely sneaks in at #40.

The two mentioned re-entries belong to country superstar Carrie Underwood. Following the release of her sixth studio album “Cry Pretty”, the singer comes back with “The Champion” (#23) and “Cry Pretty” (#30), plus her current single “Love Wins” also benefits a little bit (8-7).

Other talking points this week: As expected, Lauren Daigle’s chart debut “You Say” improves in its second week as it’s up 15-12. Lindsey Stirling is also rising as “First Light” is going up 17-13. Other than that, there aren’t many climbers, as there are much more fallers due to all the new entries this week. Some of the biggest drops belong to Amaranthe’s “365” (9-22), Vanessa Mai’s “Wir 2 immer 1” (18-33), Katja Krasavice’s “Sex Tape” (16-35), Passenger’s “Hell Or High Water” (21-37) and Zedd & Elley Duhé’s “Happy Now” (28-39).

Demi Lovato’s “Sober” is up 40-31 as the biggest climber while Katja Krasavice’s “Sex Tape” is the biggest loser this week.

My Charts - week 38/2018 – 20 september 2018 - they’ll bring The Reckoning
.
    Album Top20
    Image Image Image
Spoiler:
Four new entries and one re-entry are able to bring some changes onto the Album Top20, with all of the new arrivals making the upper and the re-entry the lower half of the charts. Country superstar Carrie Underwood has come a long way since her victory on American Idol back in 2005. Last Friday, she has released her long awaited sixth studio album “Cry Pretty”, which already spawned two number one hits with its title track and the current single “Love Wins”, so it’s not the biggest surprise seeing the album arriving at #1 too. It’s her fourth chart entry on the album charts, following her fourth album “Blown Away” (#3 in 2012, certified Platinum), the “Greatest Hits: Decade #1” compilation (#2 in 2014, Gold) and her fifth album “Storyteller” (#1 for two weeks in 2015/2016, 2x Platinum).

The two most successful albums from the last two weeks remain very strong this week as well, and even though Troye Sivan is at the runner-up position for a third week with “Bloom” (2-2), he’s finally above Ariana Grande, who goes down 1-3 with “Sweetener”.

Other new and re-entries this week: French DJ and producer David Guetta already owns 28 entries on the Singles Charts to his name, which makes him the artist with the third most chart entries ever, tied with Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift. Even though he was also successful on the album charts up until his last release “Listen” from 2014, he stopped releasing albums out of a sudden. Nearly four years later it was finally time again, as he put out his new set “7”, which enters the charts at #4. It’s his fifth entry and fourth Top5 peak. American YouTube sensation Tori Kelly already gathered some chart attention in some countries with her debut album “Unbreakable Smile”, but nothing really became a hit from it. Last week she has released “Hiding Place”, a mini album which is promoted as a gospel release. Surprisingly, it becomes her very first notation ever as it’s new at #7. Finally, the fourth and final new entry belongs to Swedish sisters First Aid Kit. The duo just got another Gold certified album earlier this year with “Ruins”, but they already released a new EP called “Tender Offerings” which makes a rather weak start at #9. Last but not least, the re-entry is Lindsey Stirling’s “Brave Enough”, which is back at #13.

Other talking points this week: Jain’s “Souldier” is able to climb back into the upper half (11-8). Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj’s “Queen” (7-11) leaves them for the first time after five weeks. Also falling out of the Top10 are “Act II” by Tarja (8-15), “Mar de colores” by Alvaro Soler (4-16) and “Runaway” by Passenger (10-19). MNEK’s “Language” sees a horrible drop too, as it leaves the charts completely after debuting at #9 a week ago.

Really? I actually believe that the second half of Beyond The Black's album is a bit stronger :oops: Even though most tracks are bit "cheesy" or "cliché when it comes to the genre of Symphonic Metal", I absolutely ADORE "My God Is Dead", "Scream For Me", "Freedom" and "Echo From The Past".
I am glad that you checked them out and that you like what you hear. Like I said, I don't expect them to turn out to be the next WT or NW or Epica or anything but they deserve some success! I can't wait to see them live next month! I am deliriously happy that they will accompany Within Temptation on the "Resist" Tour! Absolutely fantastic news!

Btw, this is one of my favourite songs by them. It's taken from their second studio album:


What are your favourite songs of the album apart from "Heart Of The Hurricane"?

I am glad to see "The Reckoning" being your current number-one! Totally deserved (and expected) debut! I can't wait to watch the video! tbh, I expected something more "Symphonic" but the new Kamelot/Linkin Park apocalyptic/futuristic style fits them quite well. I just hope that the album will sound diverse.

It's nice to see Lana's debut! The lead single is excellent! I am glad to have her back and I can't wait to get more. Ariana being part of your Top 5 twice is totally justified as well! Poor her! :(

"GTFO" should gtfo off your chart :D

I'm also a little bit disappointed. He had so many strong features this year...

Being cliché/cheesy is actually what bothers me. It's also too much after a certain formula. You've heard these kind of songs already everywhere so it's nothing groundbreaking, but still nice to listen to. It's not that i would dislike it, it's just that the second half is 'just solid'. Also, they're definitely on my "list" now, so whenever they release something new in the future, i'll definitely check it out, which is a good sign.
Yeah, fantastic news to have them as the opening act - unfortunately not for the Swiss date :(

Thanks for that link - the song sounds good! So you've already checked out their previous stuff?

Apart from the title track, "Hysteria", "Through The Mirror", "Song For The Godless" and "Breeze" are my standouts, the latter being basically the only song which really clicked with me so far from the second half.

Love "The Reckoning" <3 It's so good to have them finally back. Can't believe it's been so long since we got something new from WT. Their longest break EVER :o Only one day until the video drops, can't wait! The videos for "Hydra" were all quite strong and judging from the pics we've seen so far, "The Reckoning" will have a strong video too! Funny that you mentioned Linkin Park as today i just thought about them as well when i listened to the track :)

Glad you're enjoying Lana's new single as well. Ariana had a terrible last 12 months speaking of her private life, but musically 2018 was probably her strongest year so far.

Soon :P

Ha, yeah, I try to do that as often as possible. It's SUCH a silly/minor thing, but it just looks a little cleaner/neater to me. Same goes for avoiding that "last edited" tag at the bottom of posts (if I can help it).

Totally off-topic, since we haven't talked about Pokémon in a while, but this Eevee song & dance routine is so. damn. CUTE!

Tansike wrote:Ah ok, makes sense. I think “Sad Beautiful Tragic” is also my least fave of them all. “Treacherous” was the one I used to skip back then but it grew on me.
YES! Finally some agreement on a fave/least fave between us :lol: Although it's not as painfully slow/dull as "Sad Beautiful Tragic," "The Lucky One" has always been toward the very bottom of Red too.

Tansike wrote:Glad to hear this about “Break Free” and especially “Love You Like A Love Song”. That one was so good back then and I still like it a lot. I still remember how I came home from vacation, had jetlag and woke up at 2.00am and started to watch the video non-stop as it just came out <3 Lily’s “Not Fair” also has a special place in my heart and it’s definitely among my all-time-faves, so I’m glad this also was so successful on my charts. Hmm… the main problem is that in 2015 I discovered Apple Music and I am able to discover much more music than I did before that. For example, in 2014, 300 different songs made it onto my singles charts, this year I’m already at 360 different songs, so it got more difficult for a song to a) get to 1,000 points as there’s much more competition and b) due to lots of competition, it’s also more difficult for a song to get my attention for long enough and I’m even moving on faster emotionally.

Looking at how it’s doing at the moment, I honestly think Ariana’s “No Tears Left To Cry” will be the next song to cross 1,000 points. Looking through my excels, Kerli’s “Spirit Animal” (2016, 816 pts), Lady Gaga’s “Million Reasons” (2016, 852 pts), Selena Gomez’ “Kill Em With Kindness” (2016, 793 pts), Clean Bandit & Zara Larsson’s “Symphony” (2017, 741 pts) and Noah Cyrus & XXXTentacion’s “Again” (2017, 756 pts) are the ones I found since 2016 which have a lot of points as well, though most of them will never reach 1,000 points. Kerli with an album release boost and Gaga/Selena with future concert effects could do it.
side note: This may be the first time I’m revealing exact chart points :lol: I feel like the German Charts which never reveals its sales :lol:
Ah, of course! I should've thought of that, since Apple Music has had a similar effect on my chart (making overall turnover even faster/chart runs even shorter than before). The "Love You Like A Love Song" video really was fantastic. The karaoke video concept was cool, and a perfect way to show off how RIDICULOUSLY gorgeous Selena can look in a bunch of totally different styles. I'm still quite gay, but I think Selena sometimes has an effect on me similar to what Gaga and Bebe have had on you ;) I especially love how she rocks those glasses in the car scenes <3 Overall it's super colorful, super fun, and a super fit for the song!

"No Tears Left To Cry" makes sense as a top contender, since I imagine it'll get at least somewhat of a boost from all the Year-End Countdown hype on the horizon - but I like pretty much all of the tracks that are close to the 1,000 threshold, so best of luck to them all! Thanks for making an exception by revealing all that data to me! I encourage you to reveal as much as you'd like, as often as you'd like... ;)

It was a lot of fun watching a 3rd single out-perform the first two and become such a massive global hit for her (especially since I really genuinely enjoyed the song). <3

Tansike wrote:True. That’s absolutely impressive. But then, I remember reading somewhere that their contracts are very strict, so imagine they really have to spend lots of time to practice. Anyways, the “Idol” video and some of their performances actually made me think about trying to dance as well :lol:
Ah, that's a great point. The results are amazing and highly entertaining, but what kind of effect does such a ridiculously strict, nonstop schedule like that have on these young stars? Are the labels just completely burning them out before tossing them aside for the next batch of fresh faces?

That'd be awesome! You should definitely start with that Eevee choreography ;) Can your man teach you any moves? Go for it - as long as you promise to invite me to your first public performance!

I think I just realized the REAL reason you like getting to the office before anyone else is around... ;) ;) ;)

Tansike wrote:Yes, the album release really made me love those singles. I think these are their peaks now but considering Troye only had one Top10 hit before the album release (“Dance To This”) and now he has three is quite amazing. It’s even funny to me as the exact same happened to Shawn Mendes this year, who scored his very first Top10 hit with “In My Blood”, and the follow-ups didn’t do well until the album dropped and he got two more Top10s at once.
:o I totally forgot that "In My Blood" was his first-ever Top 10 hit here! What was his most successful song before the Shawn Mendes era?

Tansike wrote:“Electricity” is really disappointing to me, sorry :( It doesn’t even have to do with Dua, the track itself just lacks something for me and this #24 entry was actually better than it deserved looking back at it :oops:

• I'm on somewhat of a rollercoaster ride during my first play through "The Reckoning": the intro sounds pretty promising, but then those vocals at the 10-second mark :oops: As soon as the woman (Sharon?) takes over, though, I'm back on board!
• I'm a little surprised to see that little rebound for "Love Wins," since you seemed pretty over it after it barely managed that No. 1 debut, but I guess it owes the album effect?
• Last week I was pretty disappointed to see "Electricity" at No. 24, but now I'm thrilled to see "GTFO" achieve the same thing :lol: So "#Beautiful" didn't do much for you?
• Aw, Bloom is finally above Sweetener...but gets blocked by Cry Pretty instead :lol: That consistency, though!

Yet another chart that dries my tears, Tansike! :D

Totally off-topic, since we haven't talked about Pokémon in a while, but this Eevee song & dance routine is so. damn. CUTE!
Ah, I can fully understand that. I think everyone has his own quirks and people are even more sympathetic with things like this. At least that’s how I feel. As for the ‘last edited’ tag – you’re my soulmate!!! I hate that, especially in topics like the personal charts or so. I can’t avoid it in some other places (like the Artist Charts Analysis section, when I have to keep the first page updated) but I really try to avoid that as often as possible.

OMG :o Yeah, it looks really cute! I’m currently at the office ( :oops: ) so I only watched it on mute, have to re-watch it when I’m home :)

phoenix98 wrote:YES! Finally some agreement on a fave/least fave between us :lol: Although it's not as painfully slow/dull as "Sad Beautiful Tragic," "The Lucky One" has always been toward the very bottom of Red too.
<3 Well, it’s not the first time we agree on something. It just happened that we disagreed on faves/least faves a lot lately :oops:

phoenix98 wrote:Ah, of course! I should've thought of that, since Apple Music has had a similar effect on my chart (making overall turnover even faster/chart runs even shorter than before). The "Love You Like A Love Song" video really was fantastic. The karaoke video concept was cool, and a perfect way to show off how RIDICULOUSLY gorgeous Selena can look in a bunch of totally different styles. I'm still quite gay, but I think Selena sometimes has an effect on me similar to what Gaga and Bebe have had on you ;) I especially love how she rocks those glasses in the car scenes <3 Overall it's super colorful, super fun, and a super fit for the song!

Yep. Streaming really is a blessing and a curse at the same time. I’d go even that far and say the video for “Love You Like A Love Song” is one of my most favorite ones ever – the memories play a big part on one side, on another it simply is a brilliant video with all the looks, the concept (karaoke, as you said) and so on. Oh… wait! You’re still quite gay? :lol: Haha I can fully understand that. Funny how I never felt that way about Selena, probably because I kinda grew up with her and I started to like her with the show she did (‘Wizards Of Waverly Place’). She’s more like someone I’d love to hang out and chill and have as my bestie instead of someone… well, you know what :)

Ariana’s “No Tears” will cross a big milestone this week and it won’t be long until 1,000 points. I’d even say it will cross that mark BEFORE the Year-End Countdown hype will kick in.
Hmm… are you talking about the points now, or something else? :P
No, jokes aside… the reason why I don’t reveal points that often is that I’m always thinking about doing a countdown or something like this here where I reveal the most successful artists, songs and/or albums. So if I reveal too many informations (like artist xxx being the most successful artist ever, or single xxx being the most successful one ever…) I would spoil too much if I’d do a countdown. And if things will go well, there may be a countdown in 2020… :oops:

So true! It was already nice to see how “Try” outperformed the lead and then “Just Give Me A Reason” outperformed “Try”. Doesn’t happen that often these days…

That'd be awesome! You should definitely start with that Eevee choreography ;) Can your man teach you any moves? Go for it - as long as you promise to invite me to your first public performance!
I’ve already asked myself the same question. I don’t think they really have a life, because it must be such a hard work to get at a level they are. I’m not really familiar with the whole K-Pop culture but it’s so different to what we have in the pop business, and that one is already a hard one…

Oh, that’s a nice idea as that choreography looks like it’s achievable :lol: He’s a very good dancer but more like a spontaneous one – if there’s music, he can dance (very good) to it, but I guess that makes it difficult to teach someone some moves?

phoenix98 wrote:I think I just realized the REAL reason you like getting to the office before anyone else is around... ;) ;) ;)
:lol: :lol: :lol:
Nope, that’s not the reason. Especially not early in the morning when everyone can see through the window when it’s dark outside & I have light on :P

phoenix98 wrote: :o I totally forgot that "In My Blood" was his first-ever Top 10 hit here! What was his most successful song before the Shawn Mendes era?
“Mercy” with that chartrun: *20*-25-22-27-34-Out :oops:

phoenix98 wrote: :o :cry: :cry: :cry: I guess you must be a Ground/Boden-type...
Damn, I had to think about this three times until I got it!! :oops: :lol:
Well, my favorite times are Water and Grass. Electricity would be weak against Grass while Water HATES it soooo it would make sense :(
But I’m glad you’re enjoying the song! I mean, I’m not the biggest fan of Dua so I can live with the song being not the best for me, it would have been a huge disappointment if I’d love her and I’d still think the songs boring…

Ah – there we are again with these growls! I don’t even rate them much as it’s just a short part and not even as loud as the normal voices – I would’ve loved to hear more from them :oops: Yes, the woman is Sharon <3 The one who is slaying my (album) charts as ‘My Indigo’. Very happy to hear you’re enjoying her parts… the song overall is quite commercial for the band and reminds me of a female version of Linkin Park.

You’re right, the little rebound is due to the album effect.

:lol: I didn’t even noticed that “GTFO” has the same debut position as “Electricity” and you’re loving both! Anyways... I’ve never heard “#Beautiful” :oops:

Poor Troye indeed! I guess he won’t get that #1 with “Bloom”, but at least he’s finally having a super successful era on my charts. “Bloom” and “Sweetener” are definitely two of my personal highlights of 2018 :D

Thank you so much!
