British discovery! This is another flawless song. It SCREAMS summer to me! Sigala's follow up "Give Me Your Love" was very good too. "Say You Do" is a playful, joyful and energetic track that surely made me want to follow the UK charts much more!

The third 2015 returnee took advantage of Fourth Harmony ( :lol: ) ongoing sucess. What can I say ("It's complicated"... I'm so funny today!)? The track has that hook that just sticks in the brain and... I like generic pop, alright?! I am a teen after all. I must ask, however: why the f*ck do we gotta have the "generic rapper" trope here? What is even more infuriating is the fact that Kid Ink did not even wrote a second verse!!! Lazy ****!

The second Rihanna entry brings me back memories of my beloved 2000s.This played in the radio regularly. The whole atmosphere of the song deserves mention. Rihanna played a more dark side o herself in this album (something present even on the album title)< but she still did not forget a catchy chorus to go with it.

Let's take a break of these party/ higher BPM songs, shall we? I love snoozefests! I'm a romantic in my core. Even the most cheesy of lines can get to my heart (To give an idea, I think Drake's line on Work: "If you had a twin I would still choose you" is cute. JUDGE ME!)
And the story of a ex-couple trying to deal with rhe aftermath of a breakup if worded a tad bit nicely, can win me over. Hell, I like gnash's verses and I hate rap. "Everyone I do right does me wrong" is just... I will stop now. Bottom line: I love this song and the general opinion people have about it can go F itself.

I really like "I Hate U, I Love U". I have a weakness for sweetness too. The hopeless romantic in me will never die.

"Disturbia" is a bop! It's not aged as well as "Don't Stop the Music", but I still enjoy it.

#76 Ain't Your Mama
I can see why this was such a big hit in Europe for her. Probably even one of her biggest in Germany as it went Platinum there iirc. Great, catchy summer tune. Kinda sad she didn't do a whole album campaign for this.

#74 No Broken Hearts
Disappointing generic pop track. Expected much more from Bebe :(

#71 Disturbia
One of her best ones so far IMO. Didn't age too well though.

This was a hit in America in 2009. I can bet 90% of its sucess is owed to a catchy sample on the hook. I give the song this: it is a textbook example of "I am better off without you" type of song (as proven by a post on another music forum (That I want desperately to sign in but can't because registration opens one single time per year).
#68

WOW! This is quite a nice one. Earns extra points because I enjoy the song as a whole and not only the chorus. Brits know how to make music, don't they?

The second entry by this fantastic group is so awesome I even gonna stop being lazy for a moment and will actually leave the video for you jazz stans (or not) who wanna give this a listen. The first I heard this I pretty much forgot Tove Lo's original version and played this on repeat :lol: . I can imagine me drinking wine (or another fancy drink of your choice) while listening to this playing quietly in the background.

Another year-long hit that only clicked with me recently. And boy, did it click! This song debuted at #45 on my TOP 50. The following week it went to #4!!! Maybe is the drop that interests me, maybe is the acoustic guitar at the beginning or maybe my PARTY MODE was activated out of nowhere. I'm happy this is here...
#65

And much happier to see THIS here!!! Let's end this batch with another snoozefest! I never quite understood the hate this song received, to be honest. Sure, it is downtempo and thus boring (that's how it goes, right?) but came on! At least it is a innocent, cute song about a kid who found a new family after livng in the streets most of his/her life. I can't hate on that! It is minimalistic because it wants you to focus on the lyrics (or maybe just chill). And may I remember you that sweet Ruth B was a Viner (R.I.P)? Something good came out of it!
My point is: in a world full of explicit, promiscuous content like the one we live today, a song that just says: "a homeless child has a family now!" just warms my heart :cry: ... I know I sound like your grandpa complaining about the evils of the world and I don't care!!!

Nice position for "Goodbye", almost the same as it got on my YEC in 2009! (#72) The album she released later that year is also surprisingly good; "Doesn't Everybody Want to Fall in Love" from it reached #6 on my weekly chart (and #65 on the YEC).

Do you still have the link for your YEC 2009? I would like to take a look!

I'm afraid it isn't posted anywhere on the web currently; I made charts since 2000 (and YEC top 10s before that) but didn't start posting them here until last year so the only YEC that is here in full is the one for 2015.

I can post it here as plain text though; will do it like this so the page doesn't get too long:

Rihanna's third appearence dates back to her very first album. While I think the track did not age well, I like the dancehall influences and how it was a real surprise to me. I did not expected to like this as much as I did.

While OMI is forever renegated to be a one-hit-wonder there is one song from his debut album (other than Cheerleader)that deserved to become a minor hit: This one. The lyrics are the overdone "Why are you with this fella? Dump him for me!", but I can excuse this because the production of the song pleases me. AronChupa being featured is kinda weird, but it is harmless enough.

The second (and final) classical music piece is the anthologicl Ode To Joy composed by a deaf composer. While my favorite of his will always be "Für Elise", this one is just so EPIC! Everytime I feel like celebrating I would play this. It is also the only Classical music symphony (out of 10 charted) that obtained top 10 status.
Fun fact: a CD containing all of the works of Mozart was released and sold a million and a half copies in five weeks. My boi Beethoven is now crying in the corner.

Let's have some disco fun! This track is awesome. After "That's The Way I Like It" charted and flopped, it seemed I would never see a 70's song make a big inpact on my chart. "Yes Sir I Can Boogie" came in to prove me wrong. The song can make me swing any day! Plus: the lead singer's accent is cute.

I bumped into this track while lookind at the EDM charts. It is perfect, really. The chill vibe is good and the lyrics are good. Clairy tells a guy that if he f*cks one of her friends up she is gonna make his life a living hell. To that I say: fair! The song is anoher one of those I can magine myself drinking wine to.
The title is a acronym for **** U Baby btw
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Oh "Pon De Replay" was amazing back then and i still remember how much i loved this track then. I think it didn't age too well though.

This song represents Michelle's usual gimmick: her cover of my favorite Beatles song is so onirical you almost immediately will relax once you hear it. I will admit her overly sweet voice can get annoying but damn! I can1t deny how much I like this cover!

Selena will always be my favorite out of all the Disney Stars. Her 3rd risqué track (after Come and Get It and Good For You) has a laid-back production and whispery vocals. Some will will say this is her "**** you, Disney!" song and it might as well be, but hey! It is 100x better video-wise than Miley's attempt.
PS: "I mean I could, but why would I want to" is the best lyric eva!

I will sum up my thoughts: This song is here solely because of Bebe and nice production. G-Eazy might as well disappear.

The first appearence by colombian singer Shakira is a sumptuous track with tropical vibes. Yay! I got over her "weird voice" pretty quickly and now I think that Sharihanna (let's pretend for a moment that this name isn't cringey) mix up well together. Very replayable.

Another almost perfect song. If it wasn't for Lil Yachty's verse, this song would get a 10/10 to me. The rap verse (again) ruins the flow of the song, and Lil sounds bored out of his mind in what is supposed to be a party jam! I guess Charli is trying her hardest to make the song cross-over to the US, seeing as Yachty is the king of the feat. right now... And she's right! This song better cross-over ASAP

Ouch, the "Pon De Replay" cover artwork is even uglier than I remember it.

The songs I like (and know) are few and far between in the last two batches, "Hands to Myself" is the only standout. All will be redeemed when "Complicated" is revealed as the #1 though! :D

Nice to see "Hands To Myself". I really like it, however she has much better tracks in her discography.

Also liking the G-Eazy and Shakira/Rihanna tracks :)

Great set, love the Charli song particularly. You're right about Selena and the great lyric by the way. Forgot about G-Eazy and BeBe, like that too!

I would like to ask for a round of applause to Shakira for being the song who gained the most in the history of my chart. This song entered at the very bottom and was top 10 in the very next week. A jump of 42 positions!!! Now I have my own "My Life Would Suck Without You". Yay!

Remember what I said about Ariana's Focus being good to boost self-esteem and blah blah blah? well, the reason that song did not take off was because I already had a self-esteem booster: Meghan's! I totally understand why people loathe this song: Meghan is a little too narcissistic, claiming herself to be the queen of everything and insulting the viewer.... But hey! I find it pretty easy to change this song a bit so it fits my own delusions of grandeur. Was it mean (to say the least) of her part to do a song praising herself and only herself? Sure. Was she tempting fate by doing so? Yep! Did karma eventually gave her what she deserved? To that I say: look at how much of a hit "Better" was...

Maroon 5 is a band I always saw as just kinda there. never hated them, never stanned them (and probably never wil), but I liked their hits songs more or less. One More Night is far from being my favorite by them, but man! That hook... THAT HOOK!!! always gets me!

Twas' October 9 when I rediscovered my Avril luv. I played her first album on repeat during 3 days. And the result was that Avril, who wasn't going to appear in anyway whatsoever on the year-end list, managed to get two songs only two months before the chart year ended. Now I also have my own "Closer" Truly a queen!!!

Opening the top 50, we have the bossa nova act Astrud Gilberto. My country had a PRETTY lackluster year. Only Sertanejo and Forró dominated the official brazilian charts and I HATE these. Hell, I can even count the number of brazilian top 10 hits on my chart with one hand! Astrud snatched this placement pretty easily as the other two top 10 songs barely cracked the top 5, Plus: I'm a sucker for these jazz influenced genres.

My god! This song is another 10/10! The lead singer's voice is like honey and the overall message of the song is cliché but cute! I can hear a few folk-ish influences. The only reason this song did not go number one was because I Love You Always Forever existed. Really nice song!

Didn't Meghan do a WHOLE ALBUM praising herself? ha. I really like it though.

And I know I said I don't like old songs but I do stan for One More Night!

48 Lady Gaga – “Applause
Chartrun: 5 - 6 - OUT - RE (37) - 21 -22 - OUT (5 weeks)
Still have to remember how exactly I got into this song, but hey! I'm a sucker for 2000's musical icons, so this shall serve as enough reason for now. First of two entries by Lady (no, it isn't from "Joanne").
47 Maty Noyes – “In My Mind”
Chartrun: 10 - 7 - 7 - 15 - 36 - OUT - RE (32) - 19 - 10 - OUT (8 weeks)
I never cared about looking the lyrics of this song. It's power was entirely, pure "How much of a jam is this". It was hook-driven from start to finish.
46 Meghan Trainor – “Dear Future Husband”
Chartrun: 1 - 12 - 15 - 14 -35 - 44 - 24 - 45 - OUT (8 weeks)
Remember doo-wop Meghan?! This song was a true hit only throughout January, but managed to linger until July. I'm happy it is here, and I am completely ambivalant about the whole "Meghan is stereotyping women" situation. The bopbiity once again rules over real life.

45 Ronela Hajati – “A Do Si Kjo”

Chartrun: 11 - 24 - 47 - 44 - 45 - OUT (5 weeks)
Fun fact: during May, I became obsessed with two albanian songs. One of them wasn't on Spotify so it isn't here. Second fun fact: My chart system broke in this same month and I had to wait until July when it was working again. By then, the song had lost it's vital force (The fact of it being, in my eyes, a novelty song) and had a really short chartrun. This track would surely have been certified Platinum if I had my chart working during May. Well, I played it enough times for it to earn a top 50 position so it's fine.
44 will.i.am ft. Nicole Scherzinger – “Smile Mona Lisa”

Chartrun: 7 - 15 - 12 - 23 - OUT (4 weeks)
Another victim of the system! I can't say much about the rest of the #willpower album, but this one is good. I find it to be really special, but seriously, what a waste of a guest appearence for Nicole.
43 Sara Bareilles – “King Of Anything”

Chartrun: 2 - OUT - RE (42) - 40 - 21 - 11 - 32 - 30 (7 weeks)
YAS! This was my "I really angry and need something to calm down" song (before "**** You" by Lily Allen surged at the end of the year). This song is so patronizing! I love it!
