I agree that there are loads of better songs on the album so i was hoping for another track to be the next single But yeah it won't be a big success for her unfortunately.Biebz wrote:Nice entry for Carly, I don't expect much success here, it's a nice song but there's loads better on the album imo

1 (NEW) Carrie Underwood – Church Bells
Wow, i wasn't expecting to see Church bells #1 but its a pleasant surprise. Is this the next single as there isn't a music video on Youtube, or is just from listening to the album it's got a big boost?
Oh really glad to hear that. I hope it does enter your charts this weekJakeP wrote:2 (1) Lena – Beat To My Melody
This is growing on me, it's proved to be a bit of a grower. Might even sneak into my top 20 today.
Haha that's true, and also a bit sad. Her latest album is sooo good and deserved to be so much more successful than it was. No idea why she didn't get more success. But to be honest she also picked the wrong singles, especially the third one and now the fourth with "Boy Problems". It's a good track for sure, but there are several better tracks on the album IMO so i agree on that as well.JakeP wrote:8 (NEW) Carly Rae Jepsen – Boy Problems
Aww poor Carly, she is destined to be famous for silly pop songs that every time she does something more serious, people don't want it. This song is ok but i agree with Biebz i prefer some of her other tracks more.
Actually i think this is her best single since the "Love?" era, it's pretty fun and catchy and i really enjoy it a lot lately. Not sure if Top10 will be possible but it won't drop fast for sure (and that's already a big thing for her! )JakeP wrote:14 (NEW) Jennifer Lopez – Ain’t Your Mama
LOL i love Jennifer Lopez and this is looking set to make my top 20 but it won't be top 10 for me either. I loved so many of her songs from the On the 6 and J.Lo eras.
Yes i've heard the new version of "Mona Lisa Smile". I thought the original one from his album was awful though so don't expect an entry for the new version, and "Boys & Girls" won't have that much longevity as wellJakeP wrote:26 (NEW) will.i.am feat. Pia Mia – Boys & Girls
A bit like J Lo, it's not Will.i.am's best single but i like it, should also sneak into my top 20. Have you heard the new version of Mona Lisa smile with Nicole Scherzinger? I wasn't that familiar with the original as i don't have the album but this new version is so much better imo. I hope its the next single. Nicole's parts are so weird but i love it anyways.
Agree. "Pop Life" is still nice though, but "One Dance" screams smash and it looks like it will be a huge hit for Drake, if not even his biggest worldwide hit ever.JakeP wrote:38 (NEW) Drake feat. Wizkid & Kyla – One Dance
So much better than Pop life, at least One dance sounds more radio friendly which is why i prefer this song. It's gone to #1 in the UK charts, i doubt it'll reach that position in my chart though.
Glad you like these entriesbluecherry wrote:YESS at slay bells and boy godlems
I had no idea you like All Saints' new single that much Unfortunately it won't show that much longevity... Jennifer's track is the opposite with me, as the more i listen to it the more i like it and it's easily her best song in ages. Hope it grows back on you. Excited to hear what you'll think about Birdy's album, there are a few too many piano ballads on it IMO but other than that it's pretty good. It needs at least two spins though.MrRager wrote:...
Lots I like this week. The ones highlighted are the ones I think are brilliant. The rest are Ok/Good. I liked Aint Your Mama but I think I got sick of it within a week. I remember you saying you were shocked that I liked the Birdy songs. I like them, but I don't love them. But I think i'll check out her album because both her songs are nice.
I'm not that keen on Pity Party. I think its probably the worst song on Cry Baby so I'm pretty gutted that it's the song that they are trying to push the album with I wish they had gone with SOAP because it's a complete Smash!
Yes, OOTW had like the best combination of a good peak and good longevity. I wasn't a fan of BS at first and it only got into the Top20 based on the hype and on the fact that it's by Taylor. This is its chartrun: 15-16-23-39-Out-RE 29-22-15-16-18-18-23-29-31-31-28-Out - so it only had a very awful chartrun at first and it took some time to re-enter the charts. The main reason for its re-entry was that it got lots of airplay out of a sudden over here in Switzerland, so i couldn't 'escape' the song and started to really like it.phoenix98 wrote:Ah, OK. So several songs peaked higher than OOTW's No. 6, but when we look at peak + longevity combined, OOTW comes out on top. BS had pretty great longevity for a song that never went higher than No. 15 Though it's slightly criminal that you never let it crack your Top 10...
Ooh...interesting picks! I need a little more time with "Getting Warmer"...so far: don't love it, don't hate it. Singles aside, "Truth" is definitely my favorite. "Asking 4 It" gets stuck in my head a lot, though it's not a song I would've expected to get hooked on. "Obsessed" is kind of obnoxious, but catchy/fun at the same time. I keep coming back to "Red Flag" and "Naughty" too.
Did Carrie already have some hits on your charts?phoenix98 wrote:• I checked out "Church Bells" when it topped Akini's chart, and although I'm feeling it a bit more now that I'm re-listening to it...idk, it just doesn't hit me the way several other songs of hers did. It's not awful by any means - just doesn't make me want to come back for more. What are your other favorite Carrie tunes, pre-Storyteller?
• "Boy Problems", on the other hand, has kept me coming back time and time again! Really glad that it maintains Carly's Top 10 streak here. <3
• Great to see "One Dance" debut! Definitely my favorite Drake single (as a lead artist) since "Hold On, We're Going Home."
Yet another solid chart, Tansike!

Yes, i remember that, also that "Sleep Now" was part of your YEC but i couldn't remember "Traffic Lights" being there too that's why i was a bit surprised to hear it's one of your faves as well, but that's goodMagnus wrote:Yeah, this was a bit interesting because "Sleep Now" was the most successful of the two in terms of total plays (and thus its position on my YEC; "Traffic Lights" wasn't even in the top 200), but as you might remember it never reached my weekly top 30, which "Traffic Lights" did (#25). "Sleep Now" is one of only two eligible songs that got 100 plays in a calendar year and still didn't chart on my weekly chart (technically it may still happen, but not likely without some kind of strong trigger event).
Oh great that you like it!Magnus wrote:I hadn't heard that song but just listened to it and it was quite good, will probably get some plays but not sure it will be enough to chart.
Yes... that's also why it will fall even more this week....Magnus wrote:Yeah, that's a good description. It doesn't have enough of an "it" factor I think.
As i said, i only bought the standard edition back then, and the reason was because the price difference was very big and it wasn't worth to get 'only' three more songs to be honest, so i went with the standard edition. But "Wonderland" is quite good as well, and agree that there are several weaker songs on the standard edition compared to that one.Magnus wrote:Ah, I had forgotten that song wasn't on the standard edition (and I would probably have assumed you had heard all of the songs considering the album was #1 on your chart). Checking now what other songs are only on the deluxe edition... Ah, "Wonderland". That one is definitely among the better half of the songs.
I can probably live without a new lead single and album until next year, but couldn't she at least release some sondtrack song or something?
Ah cool I don't know the rules behind that 'ß' if i'm honest but there's worse i guessMagnus wrote:Yeah, and in fact I also knew that 'ß' isn't used in Switzerland, I talked about this with my sister the first time I was visiting there. I also did some googling earlier this year because I wanted to find out why the Wolkenfrei album Wachgeküsst (and the song) was officially spelled like that and not with the 'ß' and found out that it should nowadays not be used after a short vowel (which makes sense).
Glad you like Carrie's success! "Church Bells" is already my second favorite song by Carrie, only behind the fantastic "Blown Away". Unfortunately, "Beat To My Melody" by Lena was stronger than ever last week, so the battle for #1 was more interesting than i expected. I wasn't too sure about "What I Never Knew I Always Wanted" at first but over the time it became my favorite ballad on "Storyteller". I even prefer it to "Heartbeat"Magnus wrote:Great to see Carrie at #1 on both charts! I expected a strong entry for "Church Bells" but wasn't sure it would be at #1. This was a great single choice from Carrie's album (unlike "Boy Problems" from Carly's). I like "What I Never Knew I Always Wanted" a little bit more but it's close and I don't think that one would work as well as a single (if only for the awkwardly long title...).
I haven't checked out the new All Saints album yet but probably will. I never listened to any of their earlier albums in full though, despite "Pure Shores" and "Black Coffee" being fairly big hits on my chart at the time (both peaked at #4). "One Strike" is ok but so far hasn't been close to charting on my chart.
Glad you like those!vinnie65 wrote:Great new entries from Carly Rae Jepsen and JLo!!
Blown Away was the first Carrie album I bought too Before that, I'd just download her singles or random tracks that people recommended. Her biggest hits on my chart have been "Blown Away" (No. 4 peak, 9 weeks on the chart) and "Something In The Water" (No. 1(1), 8 weeks on the chart.)

I already knew who Carrie was since several years, but "Blown Away" was the first album i bought (and listened) by her, followed by her GH and the current one. I also downloaded "Play On" in the meantime. My favorite song from her is "Blown Away", already followed by "Church Bells". Since i don't know most of the pre-BA tracks i can't name a fave from there... probably "Quitter" from "Play On". What are your faves from her?
I hope you don't expect much from "Boy Problems" cause i can't see it being a big hit for her....

I'm surprised as well when it comes to Vanessa, as i never expected to like this song so much out of a sudden. I've already heard it once a while ago but it didn't click with me, now it did while i listened to the album. It also finally entered the german charts, which is well deserved. The part by Dieter Bohlen (not sure if you know him?) is already kinda iconicMagnus wrote:Oops... Ignore what I wrote yesterday in my reply about Vanessa Mai in my chart thread; she's already charting on your chart! Great to see "Ich sterb für dich" at #3! Even though that's much higher than it reached on my chart, I definitely like it. I didn't expect such a strong debut for it on your chart even after you said you liked it.
Pink's new song is OK, although nothing spectacular for me. Oh, so Halsey released "Castle" as a single? Not the best choice imo. She should release "Strange Love", that's my favourite song on the album (along with "New Americana"). But nice to see a top 10 entry for a song I already know!
Great that "Church Bells" gets a second week at #1! I also like the turnaround for "Ghost" (due to ESC compilation?) and the entry for Beatrice Egli's "Kick in Augenblick".
Very nice entry for Vanessa Mai's album on the albums chart (again much higher than on mine...)! The album is not as good as I had hoped though.
Metal is a genre I have more or less always ignored, but I got a bit curious about your #1 album so I checked out a few tracks and they were a lot different from what I expected. I don't understand any of the lyrics (Japanese?). It's rather interesting though. I might listen to the full album some time if I get bored and want to hear something different!
Cool Loving her biggest hits on your charts! "Before He Cheats" and "Some Hearts" are great too, can't remember the other two though.

Aw, so now both you AND Jake are paying "Boy Problems" dust.
Are you a big fan of P!nk in general?

• "Kill V. Maim" is enjoying some impressive longevity for a song that (tragically) isn't getting much exposure/success anywhere...well, outside UKMix, anyway!
• Speaking of impressive longevity, it's awesome that "I Took A Pill..." has never dipped below No. 13 yet!
• Hooray for "One Dance" earning your "Biggest Climber" award this week! I'd love to see it replace "Panda" atop the Hot 100...preferably sooner rather than later.

4 (NEW) Greta Salome – Hear Them Calling
Amazing to see this is your highest placed Eurovision entry this week. I adore Hear them calling and the staging with the big screen is incredible. I feel like this entry has been overshadowed by other songs i like but don't think are as good as Iceland. I really hope this qualifies from semi final 1 because many of my faves are in that semi whilst i'm not overly fussed over semi final 2.
Russia's my tip as well but as you said, France and even some other countries get more and more popular lately. I think it depends on the performance of Sergey - i think he said the staging won't be like on the video, that's a minus for me.JakeP wrote:10 (22) Sergey Lazarev – You Are The Only One
Russia remains my tip to win Eurovision even though there seems to be a lot of love for France which i'm finding very shocking and a bit confused over. I like France's entry but would never have regarded it as a potential winner.
Agree! It's such a huge surprise! Thanks a lot for making me re-discovering thisJakeP wrote:18 (NEW) Disturbed – The Sound Of Silence
So happy to see The sound of silence make its debut this week. It's been such a surprising success for me but i love it when something comes along that i least expect and find myself loving so much. This is one of those surprise hits of 2016 for me.
Don't worry, it will continue to climb this week now that the album is out as well. But there's a lot going on when it comes to singles lately, so the competition is still very strong at the moment.JakeP wrote:20 (25) Drake feat. Wizkid & Kyla – One Dance
Really thought this was gonna be much higher but i guess it puts into perspective just how much you love the top 19 if Drake is only #20 even though you like this song a lot.
You're not? This was love on first listen. I think she would be a good winner as well and i'm already excited how she'll sound liveJakeP wrote:21 (NEW) Nina Kraljic – Lighthouse
Hmm, i'm still not convinced by Croatia's entry. It's nice if a little twee and its not close to being one of my overall faves this year. It's far from the worst though, there are some horrors this year that i'm actually sure won't qualify.
Surprised you don't like it, but i think it will grow on you. His vocals are pretty good and i like the mix of english/french lyrics, and the best thing about the song is it's VERY catchyJakeP wrote:22 (NEW) Amir – J’ai cherché
Ahh so here is the song that could rival Sergey to win Eurovision? I will be surprised and a little disappointed if this wins. It's nice enough but not an amazing song.
Definitely one of the better ballads this year, but personally there are even better ones. I really like Dami though and really hope she'll make the final, but i still prefer Guy's entry from last year.JakeP wrote:25 (NEW) Dami Im – Sound Of Silence
Now this is such an amazing song. I don't care that Australia technically aren't a european country but I would be so so happy to see Dami Im win Eurovision. This is my absolute favourite Eurovision song right now. That might change as we get closer to the contest, but surely being in semi final 2 this is going to qualify with flying colours.
Haha yeah i thought about that as well. She released her debut album last week now as well and even with that it looks like "Ghost" will fall even more. The reason is pretty easy: It already did VERY well on my charts. It's already near Platinum status, which is quite huge on my charts these days (around ten songs get there every year, maybe one or two more), so i've heard it enough by now and it can't grow on me more (except if she makes a great performance, so it could rise again during the ESC final).JakeP wrote:27 (23) Jamie-Lee Kriewitz – Ghost *G*
I know how much you love Ghosts but its a little surprising that in the week you bought the Eurovision album, this song has managed to drop down your chart. Like France and Croatia, i don't really consider this a strong enough song to win Eurovision.
Yes, Azerbaijan is definitely one of the best countries lately, which is even more surprising to see Ell & Nikki as their winners as i think that is one of their weakest entries so far... Wouldn't mind this to be successful there, and as difficult as it may be, i think politics & stuff shouldn't matter at all (otherwise Russia shouldn't win as well)JakeP wrote:28 (NEW) Samra – Miracle
Azerbaijan over the years have entered some amazing pop songs into the contest and i absolutely love Miracle and would love to see this do well. Do i want it to win? Well, if Azerbaijan were more tolerant of gay people then i would say yes. It does horrify me though when i read about how gay people are treated in eastern europe.
Had this in my ears all the time even without hearing it until i bought the compilation. That alone made it enter my charts... but since i've got my compilation, i don't listen to this anymore... or only very rarely... so don't expect too much when it comes to its charts performance here. After all it's quite disappointing for an amazing country like Sweden. If they would win, it will be the biggest shock since Kristina's "Horehronie" missed the ESC final back in 2010JakeP wrote:33 (NEW) Frans – If I Were Sorry
I don't like Sweden's entry this year. When i first heard this i was so disappointed because they usually send an incredible pop song. It's too similar to Catch & release which is one of my favourite songs of the year so far, and this just sounds like a very weak version of the Matt Simons song. Think its safe to say Sweden's entry won't be making my top 20 even if it went on to win Eurovision. Forget France, i would be even more disappointed if this wins.
Yes, he is it! I think this is amazing to be honest.....JakeP wrote:34 (NEW) Ivan – Help You Fly
LOL This is the singer who wanted to perform on stage naked with tigers isn't it? I didn't really like this song when i first heard it but it is a grower and i like it more now. Again, i doubt this is destined to be a hit in my chart.
I hope they will qualify! Austria is really hit or miss lately, and "Loin d'ici" is easily their second best entry since i'm watching the ESC (so since '06)JakeP wrote:38 (NEW) Zoë – Loin d’ici
I find this entry really curious. An Austrian entry performed in french? It's a lovely song though and one of the better songs this year. Sadly i don't think Austrai are gonna qualify with this song.

I was really glad to see Lena's current single "Beat To My Melody" spending two weeks on the top of your chart! It's a perfect single choice! What a waste that Germany doesn't think the same. Lena deserves so much more! Sometimes I really wish that your chart are the real German ones!
Seeing Tarja being ranked #1 this week even though you said that "No Bitter End" ain't as flawless as her other lead singles is not a surprise. I had the feeling that the song would improve on you (since it's Tarja and her vocals are always on point). I will give it another try.

"Hear Them Calling" has to be the best Icelandic entry for a while now. We have talked about it before and I also hope that Greta reaches the final. She deserves it, especially after her serious car accident.
"You Are the Only One" has the best chart-run so far and rightly so! What a Eurovision-esque killer anthem! Although it sounds like an entry from 2008/2009, it's ace and fierce and it's freaking catchy. I can see it winning.
Croatia is great! It's like a light Emmelie De Forest-esque Eurovision entry. The arrangement is great. Croatia is usually overlooked as a country. Hopefully, this entry will bring them back!
I like "J'ai cherché" but I don't get the hype at all. It's a cool and fresh track with a summerish vibe. It also as a sing along part but it's so average to generic if you ask me.. still Top 10 material but so uneventful.
I love to see Australia back. "Sound of Silence" is well-produced and catchy. Amazing verses and I love the bridge but sadly, the chorus is too repititive in terms of words.
"Ghost" is doing soooooooooooooooooo great! Please, please, please vote for Germany on 14th May! I've read several times that Germany will end up being bottom 5 or even last again and the Norwegian and Swedish songchecks on national TV channels placed "Ghost" last as well
I'm getting nervious....
I started to like the Swedish entry. I hate it that Sweden is sending a half baked idea again and I'm sure that they will end up being high again. It's not right. It's not deserved... however, "If I Were Sorry" is catchy and even a bit charming on CD.
Nice to see Austria as well. I think it's highly overrated among fans (like winning fan votings etc...) but it's still catchy (even though it's VERY old-fashioned and somehow camp xD)
I also like to see Birdy, Coldplay, the BossHoss, Alan Walker, Nick Jonas, Tom Odell, Demi & Mike Posner on your list!
Btw, I listened to your provided link of the new Tarja single and the song's not that bad but after that video, a band called NEMESEA came up with their single "Forever" and I have to say IT'S EFFING AMAZING!!!!!! Do you know it?!?!

I like Russia's ESC entry! Can't wait to see it on TV. It will be interesting to see if the quality stays the same. I think I will start listening the ESC tracks in some days.
Wooow, I'm SO SO SO surprised to see "The Sound Of Silence" on your chart, but positively, of course What happened? Interesting to see their album chart as well - for me, it's "too hard", but I guess you liked it as a whole?
I listened to Halsey's "Castle" and feel like it sounds so much like a Melanie Martinez song
Most of them are probably from this years Eurovision Song Contest - would love to hear your opinion on a few on themMrRager wrote:...
Lots I don't know this week but i'll try and check some of them out!
Kill V Maim is my favourite song, followed by FADED. Both brilliant.
I have no doubt that Kerli will be no.1 next week
I think it was the first three. Then I listened again to a bit of "Karate" now that it charted on your singles chart, but now I mostly just found it irritating...Tansike wrote:Oh which tracks did you check out? The album is a huge surprise for me. I also listened to some metal every now and then, but only by bands with a female lead singer. Babymetal is something totally different though, as the three singers are singing in j-pop style so it's still not 'too hard'. So yeah, to answer your question, they're singing in japanese, with a few words being in english every now and then.
