I read about this too and think it's such a shame that Ke$ha has found herself in this situation. Apparently bosses were concerned that she was going to perform a song slating Dr Luke but has since said she was going to pay homage to Bob Dylan.
No, no news at all which is a shame. It should have been released already last year to be honest, when "Never Forget You" and "Lush Life" were still successfulJakeP wrote:Yes, the track is growing on me too but is also more likely to make my chart the week after next as my next chart is going to be Eurovision themed. Has there been any news about Zara's next album?
Haha i still have some hope left that "1944" will grow on you ... But yeah, during the final, i was rooting for Dami Im as well. I only voted for herJakeP wrote:Yes! I was absolutely 100% rooting for Australia to win. Dami just smashed those vocals on the night of the final and i've been going back and watching that performance on Youtube, it really was magical.......and then it comes 2nd to that song? Yes, i was disappointed.
Haha you obviously weren't the only one thinking that way... Aw it's not like he disliked it. I think he just expected a lot. And yeah, she was very funny indeed. Sometimes i thought she's actually talking even a bit too much, but i guess she had to do it that way, otherwise it could have been a bit boring with all those ballads. But she was so sweet, funny and likeable, the first artist i've seen who talked so much and seemed so normal, like every other person in the room there.JakeP wrote:I didn't think Rykka's song was that good tbh so it wasn't a shock for me that Switzerland didn't qualify. Aww, i'm sure he loved it deep down inside. I'm so happy you enjoyed the concert and had a great time. Adele really is funny, I've seen clips of Adele on tv in the UK and her laugh and personality is infectious which is why i think Adele is so popular. Adele is relatable on every possible level.
It's easily the best album of the year so far for me, so i can't wait to hear what you'll think about it. I would love to see it doing well on the Grammies, but at first it has to do well on the charts... and it looks like she could lose the #1 debut in the US and the UKJakeP wrote:Dangerous woman the album looks like it's going to be another solid gold pop album of 2016. It's sure gonna be interesting to see the shortlist for best album at the Grammies next year. I think Ariana is looking good to release a strong album full of choons.
Same with me...JakeP wrote:Oops, i forgot NO got to #2 in your chart. Meghan continues to be really hit n' miss with me.
There were even more surprising things... like the jury loving Belgium and Malta, while Malta got nearly no points from the public. I thought it would be the other way round with both songs.JakeP wrote:Yes, i noticed that with the juries. I wonder why they weren't as positive about Zoe's entry. At least there was a lot of love in the stadium for the Austrian representative.
Yes, that's probably also why they didn't qualify. I prefered the version in the icelandish preselection much more as well.JakeP wrote:For me, there was quite an obvious difference. If you watch the performance when Greta performed in Iceland, and then the semi final performance it seems to me that the producers of Eurovision in Sweden wanted to change Iceland's performance. I much preferred the "less is more" staging we saw originally in Europe where Greta looked like a silhouette.
And last year Italy would have had won if only the jury votes would have been counted. There's always a winner or a loser with looking at the results from another way. The biggest part of Jamala's win is obviously due to everything that happened to the country over the last few months if not years. Of course the contest should be about the music, but i think Ukraine definitely deserved the victory. Plus they had so many fantastic entries over the last few years, so i'm ok with the country winning it. Probably similar to Azerbaijan where they had several fantastic and successful entries, but their winning entry is one of their weakest entries overall.JakeP wrote:Australia would've won had it just been on jury votes. Also someone worked out the scoring had they used last years points system where jury and televoting was combined and Australia would've still won with Ukraine second. I downloaded Dami's song on iTunes and added to the fact i've been watching her performance from the final a few times already (that's just today ) expect Dami to be the biggest Eurovision song in my chart this year. Ukraine may have won but i just can't bring myself to enter that song in my chart just because it won, 1944 really failed to click with me.
Glad you think so! I think it still has some chances to be back sooner or later and get a new peak, if it gets picked up by the radio over here which would mean i would hear it more often = bigger chances for me to get into the song again.JakeP wrote:Aww, it still made your top 40 in a very competitive week so that is amazing in itself. It could've been completely overlooked last week but i love that this song did make your top 40.
As i said above, i think he just expected much more. But he's not music obsessed anyway, so he often doesn't enjoy the concerts. It already happened that he slept during a concert (funnily, this is my most favorite concert to date)JakeP wrote:1 (NEW) Adele – Send My Love (To Your New Lover)
Wow! Amazing entry for Adele. I'm so happy you had a great time even if your bf wasn't as keen (really? i thought he would love the concert). I must see if there are any clips on Youtube from Adele's concert. Ohh, or is it due to Send my love (to your new lover) being made the 3rd single that's caused this to do so well now. It got to #8 in my chart when the whole of 25 made my top 20 but i have to admit, i've not listened to this at all this week so it won't make my next chart but i believe the music video is released this weekend so Adele is looking likely to be high up my chart next week if the video is really good.
Aww... well, Dami's got the second biggest boost on itunes (behind... Frans ) so there's thatJakeP wrote:3 (RE) Jamala – 1944
Poor Dami I was so hoping Australia were going to win Eurovision and then Ukraine got the win right at the last minute. The way they did the results was amazing but still, disappointing winner imo.
Haha It definitely became one of her signature hits, together with "Rolling In The Deep" and "Someone Like You". It was the perfect opening of the concert, and became my most favorite song on the album again.JakeP wrote:4 (RE) Adele – Hello *P*
"hello, it's me, i was wondering if after all these months you'd like to re-enter this song in your chart"! I think it's well known just how much i love this song, it really is pop perfection and deserved to be my #1 of 2015 in my chart of the year.
Really, really glad to hear this! I'm not sure if "Dangerous Woman" is better than "My Everything" for me, as i'm missing a track that comes close to the smash hits like "Break Free", "Problem" or "One Last Time" - but "My Everything" had a very few fillers, while "Dangerous Woman" doesn't have them. Definitely a fantastic album!JakeP wrote:6 (2) Ariana Grande – Into You
As you know I usually don't buy many albums and just download individual tracks on iTune but to say we're not even halfway into the year i've already got two potential albums of the year. Lemonade being the first, and now possibly Dangerous woman being the second. I've not bought it yet, nor have i heard all the tracks but i have listened to some of the new album tracks and i'm loving this new era. I didn't think Ariana would better her My everything era but i really think Dangerous woman is gonna be massive.
I'm surprised you still enjoy to watch the performances of some songs and the video that often. I prefer hearing it through iTunes or so. So i can do something else. Every now and then i'm also watching some performances of course, but that's quite time consuming, isn't it?JakeP wrote:7 (26) Dami Im – Sound Of Silence
Aww, here's my poor baby Dami. The amount of times i've watched her performances (both semi final and grand final) over the last week i'm certain that Sound of silence is going to be my highest charting Eurovision entry this year. Absolutely love this song and the performance which were so incredible. Dami really sang her heart out in the final and i get goosebumps everytime i watch it back, especially when she hits the big note in the final chorus, and i love how you can hear the whole crowd bursting into a massive cheer as she nails that high note. Magical moment, so disappointed this wasn't the winner.
That bulgarian part (if it actually is bulgarian) just does it for me. No idea if i pronounce it correctly but i LOVE to sing along to that track in my car Glad it became the biggest success for Bulgaria so far!JakeP wrote:8 (NEW) Poli Genova – If Love Was A Crime
I really like this song but what lets the song down for me is the production. The first verse sounds lush but then when it goes into the first chorus it sounds so flat (the backing music) i would've loved the music to have been louder to give off that sense of euphoria you get when a song goes into a big chorus.
Yes <3 but had no idea she's just 19! I thought she way older Glad she did well for Austria - apart from Conchita it was their best result since 2003!JakeP wrote:9 (4) Zoë – Loin d’ici
Aww, she's such a darling isn't she? I still don't know why the juries didn't rate this performance but Zoë won the hearts of many Eurovision fans and got a deserved result in the televoting.
The screen looked awesome and it was a great idea, however it still could have been better. The screen when they showed wings was way too cheesy, plus he seemed very unsure about it while 'climbing' up the screen. Plus i disliked his clothes (he has such a cool style in the video... i hoped he would wear something cool as well). Anyway, during the contest, i somehow got a bit over this song and prefered others to win, that's also why it didn't climb more positions. 21-12 is still a great move after so many weeks on the charts thoughJakeP wrote:12 (21) Sergey Lazarev – You Are The Only One *G*
Oddly enough i was expecting this to return to #1 in your chart so its very surprising that Sergey didn't even make top 10. What a performance though, i thought the idea of climbing up the screen was so clever and probably one of the most genius staging ideas i saw this year at Eurovision. I'm happy Sergey didn't slip on the night as apparently he slipped during the rehearsals.
Yes! And only several weeks after being released as a single. It just took ages to click with me.JakeP wrote:13 (RE) Adele – Rolling In The Deep *P*
"we could have had it aaaalllllllllllllllllllllllll", i feel an Adele karaoke moment coming on. *grabs hairbrush* Did Rolling in the deep really only peak at #6 for you at the time?
Yes, she definitely deserves all the success she gets. I can see why some people think she's overrated, or boring, or whatever. But she's doing stuff everyone can relate to, and that's great! Haha that line... i've never heard her singing it the way it is on the record. I like it both ways though. It will be VERY difficult for her to beat the success of "Someone Like You" on my charts by the way...JakeP wrote:16 (RE) Adele – Someone Like You *5xG*
I'm loving seeing the Adele impact, she really is one of a kind. I don't think anyone else right now can achieve success in the way Adele has done, and i love it. Someone like you was always a weird one for me because i always preferred the way she sang the chorus at her Brit awards performance unlike the album version where she sings the line "don't forget me, i beg" high up with her voice as i was became more used to Adele singing that line of the song in her mid range.
Oh i enjoyed his performance 3rd in the televotes is still VERY strange though.JakeP wrote:29 (NEW) Michał Szpak – Colors Of Your Life
I really didn't like this song, it sounds like that song Truly madly deeply by Savage Garden. I thought it was very telling how this did so badly with the jury votes but when it came to the televoting it finished 3rd! No way on earth was this the third best song in the Eurovision final. Third from bottom, yes!
I'm surprised how fast i got over "One Dance" again - it feels like it's just a few days ago when i was praising "One Dance" a lot. I'm sure "Too Good" will be huge everywhere... but surprisingly it's "Controlla" which gets airplay support in the US, not "Too Good"JakeP wrote:38 (23) Drake feat. Wizkid & Kyla – One Dance
Move over One dance, Too good is here to take the honour of being Drake's most successful song in my chart........so far. This has really taken off now in the UK.
Wow, that's great for her. Unfortunately, it already left my charts for a few weeks, but the concert gave her a huge booststevyy wrote:wow, adele pushing thru. her album has never left my albums top 20/30 since it debuted. what an evergreen.

Ah, ok. I thought maybe they were reserved for some discography or similar stuff that you intended to post later but wanted to appear before the chart update. I did notice a couple of "On to the next page..." posts before which I thought was clever. I like that UKMix has no setting in the User Control Panel to change the number of posts per page; many other forums have that, which sometimes leads to silly discussions when someone says something is on page 20 and someone replies that there are currently only 5 pages . Let's hope it stays this way!
The new chart is very interesting! I hadn't noticed that "Send My Love" was being released as a single. Overall I find Adele's latest album hugely overrated but that song is the exception and an excellent single choice! It became Adele's first and so far only hit on my chart back in early December. "Hello" was very close though and I don't hate the re-entry for it this week on your chart. I can definitely understand the "concert effect". It would have been interesting to see how your chart would look after some concerts if all album tracks were allowed to chart .
Wow, 21 songs from this year's ESC on your chart, that's a lot! Only seven has charted so far on mine, although there would have been a few more if I had 40 positions rather than just 30. I still find 2016 a strong year compared to 2015 and 2014 though, but not close to 2013 when 27 songs from the contest reached my chart, including the entire top 10 two weeks (competition from other songs was unusually weak those two weeks though). Interesting chart run so far for the winner. More to my taste are the new entries from Poli Genova (who reached #14 on my chart in 2011 with "Na inat") and Laura Tesoro. The Latvian and Polish entries are OK too. Also good to see the climb for "Lighthouse", and Zoë at least gets another week in the top 10; she's doing better on your chart than mine now... That massive dive for Rykka though .
Not that surprising to see the ESC album at #1 for a third week after the slayage on the singles chart, although it would also have been unsurprising to see Adele returning to #1. A little surprised though that her two previous albums (or at least 21) never reached #1. I will probably check out Dami Im's album. Are there any more songs on it as good as "Sound of Silence"?
Yes, her show was very good. She talked a lot between the songs, and was very funny and down to earth. Her voice was obviously perfect as well. But apart from the singles, she's not one of my favorite artists, so i didn't enjoy it as much as i enjoyed other concerts so far. It was still incredible and she's definitely an artist one has to see live. Haha i wish it would be glamorous (fantastic song, btw!) That were just two evenings within five months so...phoenix98 wrote:...

• I've really been getting into "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)" this week - it's something a bit different for her, and certainly more captivating than WWWY - so I hope it becomes a bigger Hot 100 hit (well, a bigger hit everywhere, really.) **Fingers crossed**
• Ouch at "Into You" falling out of your Top 5 already...but hopefully, once Adele + ESC hype wears off, it'll be able to enjoy a more steady run.
• "Make You Feel My Love" seems to be one of Adele's most forgotten singles, but I think it's a really lovely cover, and probably one of my favorite singles of hers (partially helped by the fact that it was never massively overexposed, like many of her hits.)
Yet another dazzling chart, Tansike!

And I sometimes ask myself how I still have so few posts after 12 years here... If I had just made a single post per day since I registered I would have almost three times my actual post count. Quality over quantity I hope . Oh, I wasn't aware there are post quotas (or I may have read it in the rules a decade ago and forgotten). Even though I've never been close to those limits it's good to know, wouldn't like it if I had to wait several days to post my chart update...Tansike wrote:Haha... sometimes i ask myself how the heck did i get so many posts on here?!
But there are even 'worse' people i think, as i barely reach the post quota (one can post max. 250 posts within five days). I only reach that in two weeks of the year: The Grammy week, and the ESC week.
It only changes how it's shown to that specific user, so it isn't messy as long as people don't start assuming a certain number of posts per page. But apart from the problems it would create here I don't really see the need for it.Tansike wrote:Oh now that sounds interesting. But isn't it too messy, if everyone could change it?
True, if I hadn't discovered Madeline Merlo's album when I did, there would have been more ESC songs on my chart this year. In 2013 it was a combination of strong ESC songs and very weak competition (because I had been lazy and not checked out any new songs for several weeks). In average competition there could easily have been just half that amount.Tansike wrote:Well to be fair, album tracks are also allowed to enter your charts, and you had several albums lately where nearly the whole album was able to get an entry on the singles charts as well, so i think it was more difficult to get a spot for the ESC entries than on mine, where only singles are allowed to chart. Otherwise there would have been an even bigger competition as well. Wow 27 songs in 2013 sounds impressive! But i agree, 2016 was a great year from the contest. Glad you like several entries on the charts - and don't worry for Rykka, she's not over yet
Ah of course, how silly of me to not realize that album is a covers albums. I do remember thinking the title was a little strange . I won't bother with that album but if/when she releases a new proper album I will most likely check that out.Tansike wrote:"Sound Of Silence" is not on Dami's album "Classic Carpenters" is an album full of covers by the Carpenters.

"Into You" is fantastic. I don't know why it didn't click with me on the first spin, but I'm really loving it now (the video's solid as well). Adele's new single is my least favourite song on the album, but it's growing on me. Still, though, I can't understand how she didn't release "Million Years Ago" or "River Lea" before "Send My Love".
Speaking of Adele, I'm loving all her re-entries. The power of that concert, I suppose. "Rolling in the Deep" and "Hello" >>>
Oh but it's not that different... but yeah, the album cover could have been better.

On the album cover it looks a bit like she tried that bunny thing out on her head and then someone came into the room and she was surprised and exposed
A bit surprised "Into You" didn't go #1!
Nice to see Guetta & Zara enter It's far from a musical masterpiece, but I think it's just a perfect football song and has a lot of spirit and will be a nice tune over the Euro
I always kinda missed a real chorus in "Problem", but "Break Free" is one of the best songs of 2014! I really need to make a 2014 year end chart to see where it would land
Dislike "Bang Bang" though And didn't they change Nicki on the cover? I remember this cover, but she looks uninterested and bored there, haven't seen it in ages
