The success of this track in your chart has been extraordinary. What is the most successful song of all time in your chart that has collected the most chart points?
It really is! And i still enjoy the song a lot
Good question... and there's a song which is by far the one with the most points, and that's most likely a very surprising one... it's...

For a couple of weeks i truly loved this song. It was such an unexpected surprise as i never imagined i'd like a new song from a former eurovision winner. Well, i only ever imagined Loreen would go on and release another magical anthem after the success of Euphoria
. For Lena to end up having the best post-eurovision success in my chart is such an incredible feat.
So Lena is the only ESC winner who got another big hit on your charts? I didn't know that... but, surely Loreen also had another hit ("I'm In It With You", maybe?). So happy for Lena for doing so on your personal charts though, and it's definitely well deserved as this was (and still is) a beautiful ballad. They should have done more for this song, i think it could have been a big hit for her if handled correctly...

One of my songs of the year. I'm so happy that P!nk got the UKmixPARADE #1 song of 2017.
Huge feat for her, i didn't expect that to be honest

Considering Joanne was only released in 2016 i never expected a song like this to emerge so soon after. But i love the fact that Lady Gaga returned to her pop roots as i really feel like she delivered with this song. Yet here we are six months on and there's no sign of a follow up, or anything. Makes me wonder if The cure was just a standalone single.
Me neither, and while i'm still disappointed she never released more songs of "Joanne" (like the brilliant "Dancin In Circles" or the great "Diamond Heart") i'm still happy we got another little pop gem with "The Cure". Will be interesting to see what she'll perform at the Grammys, as she was confirmed as a performer and she's set to perform something of "Joanne"...

The success of this song may have been short lived in my chart but the music video is everything. I still think the last 40 seconds of the video are amazing.
I agree, a huge highlight when it comes to last years videos

I was really loking forward to the new Aura Dione album, but unfortunately it wasn’t as good as ‘Before The Dinosaurs’. I did like this track though.
Glad you love them as well <3
Aw... well, on one side i'm happy to hear you like the title track (which is my favorite song on the record), on the other hand, while i enjoyed the whole album, i agree that it's weaker than "Before The Dinosaurs".
