At least things are back to normal now. :lol: :P
Aww... i hope everything is fine now with your mom <3
Real life and especially things like these are always more important, so it's okay to step back a bit with UKMix during these times.

JakeP wrote:Oh :lol: Well, you never know. I might like this just as long as there aren't any of those growling vocals. :cry: Also i'm planning on going through all the entries this weekend when i will have a bit more time. :D I don't mean to plug my entry here (of course i do :lol: :P ) but the official music video for my entry was released two days ago and its stunning. :o Even i wasn't prepared for such a beautiful looking video considering its a dance track.
Hmmmmm.... :oops: :oops: :P We'll see! It obviously also depends on all other entries, and as if it's a strong month overall or not. I also plan to go through all entries later today. I'm excited, as i didn't take part last month or even the month before iirc. Excited for your entry... i'm always even more excited to hear the entires of members i really like on here (like yours or Mainshow) :)

JakeP wrote:Aww, but Kylie still got as high as #2 which is amazing. What is Kylie's most successful single in your chart?
That's "In My Arms", which debuted exactly ten years ago and had a really strong chartrun (9-5-5-6-3-5-7-10-10-Out). There was just a weekly Top10 then :)

JakeP wrote:Ahh that's so cool. I thought it might've been the JakeP effect. :wink: I didn't sign up to the UK Mixtape game as it started when i was still struggling to find time to come on UK Mix. It's still amazing to see Best friend impacted here. I've been aware of the song for a few weeks after seeing the song #1 in Benjamin's dance genre chart, but i never got round to checking out the song. Then the song was #1 on Belgium iTunes which got me interested so then i checked it out on YouTube and a week later it entered my chart. I love the song even more now hence its climb into my top 5. :D

Which brings me to this weeks highlights. :D
No, sadly not, not this time :oops: I read "Best Friend" was the song to the iPhone X ads so i thought this may have been the way how you discovered it. I also saw it's charting high in Belgium, but only after hearing it on the Game i mentioned. Sometimes it's really funny how people discover things, there are always so many ways...
Have you seen their performance on Jimmy Fallon? I love it! :oops:

JakeP wrote:1 (2) One Bit & Noah Cyrus – My Way

I should revisit this one. I didn't really get into this when i first heard the track so perhaps with fresh ears it'll click. :wink:
Hopefully! I would love this to be a hit on other personal charts as well 8-) It's obviously nothing new or innovative, but it's just so incredibly catchy. And i love me some Noah, she's having an amazing run for me.

JakeP wrote:3 (13) Hailee Steinfeld & BloodPop – Capital Letters

Wow :o So this really has grown on you. :P Does this make Capital letters Hailee's highest peaking single in your chart?
It really did! Hopefully the same happens with you :wink: Yes, it does... previously, "Let Me Go" was her highest peaking single with a #4 peak.

JakeP wrote:5 (NEW) Marshmello & Anne-Marie – Friends

I've been listening to this track quite a few times this week so it's looking set for a decent chart entry for me this weekend. It's looking likely to be Anne-Marie's biggest hit since Rockabye, and the music video is coming tomorrow and it looks like it's gonna be great.
...
What an amazing trailer :o Thanks for posting! Need to watch the official video as soon as possible!
This is also her biggest hit since "Rockabye" on my charts, though she already collected some other great hits with "Ciao Adios" or "Then" here. She really has a lot of potential and i hope she releases a debut album (or at least EP) soon.

JakeP wrote:9 (NEW) Saara Aalto – Monsters

I can't believe a song of this standard is only part of Finland's selection process. This is the type of pop anthem the UK should be sending to eurovision. Needless to say Monsters is so much better than the SuRie song Storm that is going to represent the UK. :roll: :( I can't see the UK doing that well this year. No change there then. :lol:
I know!! :o This is amazing and could do wonders on the contest. The second song called "Domino" is out now and it's also not bad, though "Monsters" still is much better. So fingers crossed they pick this as their entry this year. Saara will slay that stage 8-) I haven't heard the UK entry so far so i can't judge that one yet...

JakeP wrote:13 (18) Sofi Tukker feat. NERVO, The Knocks & Alisa Ueno – Best Friend

Keep climbing. 8-)
8-)

JakeP wrote:32 (NEW) James Bay – Wild Love
40 (NEW) Calvin Harris feat. PartyNextDoor – Nuh Ready Nuh Ready

Neither of these are even close to making my new top 20. Wild love is easily the better of the two but after one play i was unconvinced (and that lyric video made my head hurt :lol: ) then a second play didn't really change that. Whereas the Calvin Harris song is just pure disappointment. I'm unsure what he's trying to achieve making music like this, i just want Calvin to go to making "songs". :lol:
To be honest both of them are likely to already leave the charts next week as i keep on skipping them. While it was nice to get new tracks by both of the artists, i really also expected something better by both of them.

Salü! Long time haven't commented.
Not many of my favourites in your chart, to be honest. And, as far as I can see, no Swiss artists either (I'm not from Switzerland and currently Dabu Fantastic have two songs in my chart: one @ #33 and another one @72 and also there are two songs of I Quattro - what a paradox). And Kylie's dropping so faaast... In my chart it coldn't yet even thrive properly :D Big plus for Feuer - definitely stands out from the crowd.

Anyway, liäbi Grüsse us Pole :)

I am positively surprised about the high debut for "Friends" by Anne-Marie (...and Marshmello :P ) . I need a full album by her already.

Tansike wrote:What do you mean there? Did Yellow ever came out? I'm sorry but I don't remember that at all… #flopfan :oops:

Haha no, I never watched Star Trek in my life, though I obviously know what it's about and also know some of the characters there. So Discovery is the first thing I'm watching from Star Trek and I was blown away by a few episodes. This weeks season finale was quite disappointing though.

Aw, I forgot to mention Stranger Things. I binge-watched season two on the sunday after it came out and LOVED it. Also know BoJack Horseman, but never watched it. Already thought about watching Grace and Frankie… there's actually a lot of nice things on there. That's so cool, it's basically impossible to get bored these days :lol:
Ha, no worries! You're never a flop. I'm often much less clear than I realize, so I've gotta watch my wording/phrasing more carefully :lol: I just meant that Yellow got its Virtual Console release on the same day as Red and Blue (February 27, 2016), unlike what they decided to do with the VC releases of Gold, Silver, and Crystal.

Aw :( Bummer that the first Star Trek season to ever really hook you ended on such a lame note. Ha, yeah, there's such an awesome variety of original shows being produced by streaming services like Netflix and Hulu now that they've definitely eclipsed regular "TV shows" for me. The convenience of being able to progress through the season at your own pace (when they release it all at the same time) is a really nice perk too (instead of having to wait until every Tuesday at 7:00pm or whatever.)

Tansike wrote:Agree! :cry: Oh, really? A shame, I thought it may become a bigger hit than that…
:cry: :cry: :cry:

The official "Til I'm Done" video just dropped on Friday, so maybe that can at least help it re-enter (and re-peak) on the next UK chart...? I'm not too encouraged by the fact that it has less than 200k views so far, though :-? Even poor flop "Guilty" has over 1.7 million...

Tansike wrote::P 'bubbly' is a very fitting word to describe the song as well, and it really grew on me last week, so you'll be very pleased with its position on the upcoming chart, as there's definitely something to celebrate :wink: Hmm not sure about that, at least not yet… I admit she already released several bops but not as many as Selena, Demi or Ari. Let's see how her first full-length album will be… I just hope it will be out soon. Now seems to be a perfect time with "Let Me Go" being a little hit in some countries and "Capital Letters" becoming quite a hit as well due to the 'Fifty Shades Freed' movie.
Yeah, it definitely should/needs to happen sometime this year (preferably by summertime.) I wouldn't be too shocked (or disappointed) if they sweep "Most Girls" under the rug (maybe a deluxe edition bonus track at best), but they can treat "Let Me Go" as the lead single and then drop one more shortly before the album...

Tansike wrote:Definitely! And yes, I think it only charted in the UK… let me check… oh, it really didn't chart anywhere, not even in the UK! What a wasted opportunity then :o Maybe she will re-release it after "IDGAF" since that one is becoming a hit as well for her now.
Yeah. On one hand, I'd love to see some belated justice for "Last Dance"...but I also feel like she shouldn't wait too much longer to start moving onto her next era, so making "IDGAF" the last single from her debut might be for the best (then hit us with something brand-new in the fall, perhaps...?)

Tansike wrote:Yeah. She's my second most favorite solo-artist, and was on the edge to become even THE most favorite artist for me, and this would have been my first concert with her and should have been the first concert with my partner, so there are similar things which makes this cancellation quite bitter for me. Also, we already tried to attend Ariana's concert, and Gaga's concert already got postponed once, so three tries and all of them failed, it looks like something doesn't want me to attend a concert with my partner :roll:

My next concert may be Evanescence or Imagine Dragons, but I'll probably go alone to Evanescence and already asked my Mom for the ID one… if I would have known about that earlier, I would have wanted to go with my partner sooo bad :cry: :oops:
:o That was going to be your first Gaga concert ever too? Damn. That really does make it especially tragic. It really sucks that your concert dates with your partner in particular keep getting blocked :x You just wanna start making some magical musical memories with your man!

Tansike wrote:As for "The Middle", so far it's looking good. I really enjoyed "Stay" after a while and "The Middle" is currently on a similar level, so it may be possible for him to get another certified hit with it. Depends on its longevity, of course. Maybe I'll be over it in two weeks, but right now I don't see that.
Does he have a stronger discography on your charts?
I just went to check after seeing your question, and I didn't realize that all of his Paulboard entries (as the lead artist) have gone Top 10:

"Clarity" = No. 1 peak | 11 weeks total | [P]
"Spectrum" = No. 4 | 8 wks | [P]
"Stay The Night" = No. 8 | 7 wks | [P]
"I Want You To Know" = No. 2 | 6 wks | [P]
"True Colors" = No. 4 | 2 wks
"Stay" = No. 2 | 12 wks | [2xP]
"Get Low" = No. 9 | 7 wks | [G]
"The Middle" = No. 2 | 3 wks (but almost certain to be more...) | [G]

Thanks for asking! :D

Tansike wrote: :lol: that's okay! It's still not a masterpiece of course, but I think it doesn't deserve the bad critics it gets. So I guess you weren't that much into the "20/20" albums?
I only picked up the first 20/20 Experience - and (like all of his albums, really), I keep getting lured in by enjoyable singles (and the general hype around him as an artist), only to be pretty underwhelmed by most/all of the rest of the material :oops: The only non-single on the first 20/20 Experience that really stood out to me was "Blue Ocean Floor."

Tansike wrote:Oooohh I would absolutely LOVE it when "hopeless fountain kingdom" may be your next album addition! Also, "Colors" is a great track, so a deserved #1 hit on your chart for Halsey :wink:
Ha, well...for good news, I did add it on Friday...but for less-than-good news, it isn't shaping up to be another Waves or Dua Lipa or Camila for me :oops: I'm pretty obsessed with "Alone", though - and I'm really glad to hear you loved "Colors" too!

Tansike wrote:My points system is actually very easy… a weekly #1 gets 40 points, #2 gets 39 points and so on, down to #40 getting one point. This may be a bit unfair sometimes (like a #2 scoring nearly as much as a #1 despite me maybe liking the #1 much more etc.) but it's the easiest way for me to give out points and certifications. Also, "Perfect For You" hang on longer than expected, also because I keep on spinning the album and I keep on loving it, especially the first half… so, maybe Rachel will have something to celebrate very soon - who knows?
Totally makes sense! That's exactly how I'd do my Year-End Countdowns (30 points for every week that a song spent at No. 1, down to 1 point for every week it spent at No. 30.)

• In just 3 weeks, "My Way" manages to do what mega-smash "Again" never quite could! That screenshot you used inspired me to check out the video, which is pretty fabulous! It's "simple" in a way, but the fantastic colors, special effects, and choreography make it a much more entertaining viewing experience than some videos that had much bigger budgets/elaborate stories/etc.
:o :D I did NOT expect Hailee to jump "up baby, up" to her highest peak EVER! If this achievement doesn't inspire her to finally drop a proper album, idk what will...
• Lovin' that little rebound for "Never Be The Same"! That re-ignites my hope that it could end up with an even better run than "Crying In The Club." ;)
• Rachel finally clutching that beautiful, shimmering Platinum cert! 8-)
• I'd forgotten that "For You" tumbled out in just three weeks during its initial run :lol: I'm not too bothered, though, since you clearly made the right call when it comes to the superior Fifty Shades Freed single! ;)

Yet another chart that makes me wanna do it your way, Tansike! :D

Hey prz, how are you? :)

Wow, that's amazing news for both, Dabu Fantastic and I Quattro. I'm not that much into both of them, though Dabu Fantastic already had a few nicer songs. But yes, there are no Swiss entries at the moment, but i have to admit i'm usually not the biggest fan of them by myself and there hasn't been a great song from a Swiss artist lately IMO.
Glad you highlight "Feuer" by Faun, love the instrumental parts a lot there :D

Greetings from Switzerland :wink:

I'm glad you like the debut for "Friends" and i think you may love its position even more this week... :wink:

Oh, it got the same release date? :o Somehow i completely forgot about that, and i think i also didn't think about this back when it got released, because i only got Red and not the other one, which would have been cooler after all... :-? :oops: :x

Don't get me wrong, i still enjoyed the season finale, it was just not as strong as i was hoping for, especially after having 3 brilliant episodes just before the finale...
Yeah i agree there, they're doing an amazing job creating new TV series. I've heard of Hulu but i guess it's US only iirc. Netflix is the only thing i use so far, but this may change someday as there's a lot out there at the moment and it's definitely the future when it comes to watching TV. Speaking about TV series, are you watching RuPaul's Drag Race?
What i also love is that even if not the whole season is out at once (like Star Trek, where every episode got released each week), you are still able to watch it whenever you want, and don't have to sit in front of the TV at the exact time when it would air.

Fingers crossed for that! I haven't followed the charts at all lately so i have no idea if the video helped. If not, then i still hope she continues to promote the song, as i think it could do really well. The general public just needs to know it exists. Oh, okay... this doesn't sound too promising :(

phoenix98 wrote:Yeah, it definitely should/needs to happen sometime this year (preferably by summertime.)

That would make sense, but including "Most Girls" would be a good choice too as it did quite well in Australia and the US iirc (well, for her standards at least). I'm sure she announces it soon, as another pop girl i'm currently rooting for also finally announced her debut album (Anne-Marie), and it will include a song from 2016! Zara Larsson or Dua Lipa also did the same, so i can see that with Hailee too.
It'll be interesting to see how they treat "Capital Letters", as it's more like a soundtrack single and not really 'hers', if you get what i mean.

phoenix98 wrote:Yeah.

Yes :cry: I was already ready for my Album Top20 to have only Gaga albums in the Top5 and at least 10-15 songs from her to be on the Singles Top40... :lol: :oops:

Thanks for asking! :D
Wow, this is a really impressive discography for Zedd so far!
I had no idea "Clarity" was such a big hit for you. Kinda sad to see "True Colors" being his weakest hit to date, at least when it comes to the staying power. Obviously very happy about the success for "Stay" and "The Middler" :D
Also... don't you count "Break Free" as his song also? :oops:

Hm okay. Well, you didn't miss a thing with the second "20/20 Experience" album IMO. Well, maybe when there are no other albums to add to your library, "Man Of The Woods" would be a nice choice and also good enough to give it a chance.

phoenix98 wrote:Ha, well...for good news, I did add it on Friday...but for less-than-good news, it isn't shaping up to be another Waves or Dua Lipa or Camila for me :oops: I'm pretty obsessed with "Alone", though - and I'm really glad to hear you loved "Colors" too!
YASSS. I already took a short look on your charts (i actually do so every week - only a comment is missing, i know... :oops: :oops: :oops: ) ... and i'm SOOO happy to see her success there! I already tried to catch up with the missed weekly charts this week though i didn't post it yet as i want to post everything together, so... i hope i'll be ready on Monday or Tuesday. Time is just a very special thing for me at the moment :oops:

phoenix98 wrote:Totally makes sense! That's exactly how I'd do my Year-End Countdowns (30 points for every week that a song spent at No. 1, down to 1 point for every week it spent at No. 30.)
That's also how my YEC is built in the end. So following my charts may already make it quite easy to predict some YEC positions. I already thought about including plays (for example one play is one point), though that would be quite unfair for older songs plus i played A LOT in 2013 so a few songs have hundreds of plays that i don't like that much compared to a few songs with less than hundred points i adore, so it also wouldn't make sense to me...

So... you say 'I'd do my Year-End Countdowns' ... so this means you also didn't do one just for you? Or did you do that for 2017?

Haha... yeah, it did it! I was so obsessed with "My Way" during that week though so it was even a quite easy number one for One Bit and Noah Cyrus. Though i don't think it will show nearly as much longevity as "Again" did. Oh, glad to hear that screenshot made you interested in the video, and i have to agree - i love how colorful it is! I saw a comment there saying it's like a mix of Sia stuff and Alice In Wonderland, which fits very well as a description.

Fingers crossed! "Capital Letters" is definitely another bop from her 8-) Shame on me for not appreciating it at first!

We'll see. I'm not too sure about that to be honest, also, there are TONS of new entries this week so the competition is really big right now.

Yes, she did it :cry: 8-) Well deserved IMO! Now she onkly needs to release "Collide" to get another smash... btw, speaking of "Collide", i only discovered this week that she performed it on James Corden's show last month and Billboard even said it's a single, plus it shortly appeared as a single on Wikipedia (though that one got removed now). So... i'm not sure if i should let it onto my chart now or not. A shame on me for not checking it out when it got released as a promotional single... :x

Glad you're not too bothered about the performance of "For You". I loved Rita's last singles but this is quite weak compared to these, plus Liam adds absolutely nothing to the track. Should have been just Rita with an edgier production. I think it's quite sad how this track just ruined an amazing run for Rita... :oops:

Thanks a lot :D

thanks so much for all comments

week 08/2018 – 22 february 2018 By The Way, we're just Friends

Image
    Singles Top40
With an incredible 11 new entries and one re-entry, this week has been the busiest by far of 2018, and also in a very long time before that year. All these entries obviously brought lots of changes to the Singles Top40, though none of them made a too big impression, so the highest new arrival barely made it to the Top10, with the re-entry being slightly higher...

...but there's still a new number one, and that's "Friends" by Marshmello and Anne-Marie, which climbs 5-1 following its arrival a week ago. This rises the number one ratio of Marshmello to 100%, as his only other chart entry - "Wolves" with Selena Gomez - also made it to the top. As for Anne-Marie, "Friends" becomes her very first number one hit ever on my charts, which is a perfect timing, as she just announced her debut album "Speak Your Mind" which will be released in two months. Her previous highest peaking tracks were "Rockabye" with Clean Bandit and "Ciao Adios", both #3 hits. Last weeks chart topper "My Way" by One Bit and Noah Cyrus drops 1-3, also making room for Saara Aalto's possible ESC entry "Monsters" which jumps 9-2.

As mentioned, the re-entry is even higher than all new entries, and the track that's making a great comeback is "The Joke" by Brandi Carlile. The song re-enters the chart at #5, which immediately means "The Joke" becomes Brandi's highest peaking single ever, surpassing the #6 peak of "That Wasn't Me" from 2012.

Now on to the new entries. Romanian dance pop queen Inna is back with yet another new release, and despite having released her new album only in December 2017, it's already a completely new track. It's called "Me Gusta" and starts at #9. This is far from a bad debut position, but still her lowest peaking track to date together with "Rendez Vous" (2016). There are no other new arrivals in the Top10, but a further five in the Top20. Saara Aalto already gets her second notation with "Domino" at #13, followed by "Heaven" by Julia Michaels which debuts at #14 as the third entry from the 'Fifty Shades Freed' soundtrack. Australian superstar Delta Goodrem's new single "Think About You" enters the charts at #16, with "Mad Love" by Sean Paul, David Guetta and Becky G being new at #17. The last new entry in the upper half is "You Owe Me", the latest release by The Chainsmokers. "You Owe Me" is just their fourth Top20 notation, following "Closer" featuring Halsey (#18), "Don't Let Me Down" featuring Daya (#3) and "Paris" (#19).

From all eleven new entries, five made the lower half of the charts. Muse' new single "Thought Contagion" makes it to #28, Måns Zelmerlöw - the Swedish ESC winner from 2016 - makes a rather surprising entry with "Happyland" at #32, followed by "Love Lies" by Khalid and Fifth Harmony member Normani. Niall Horan's "On The Loose" starts at #38 as the fourth single of his solo debut album and "Under" singer Alex Hepburn returns to the charts after five years with "I Believe" (#40).

The rest of the best: Hailee Steinfeld & BloodPop slip 3-4 with "Capital Letters", Halsey's "Sorry" is down 2-6, Noah Cyrus & MØ's "We Are..." drops 4-7, Nina Kraljic's "Lay You Down" dips 7-8 and Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey's "The Middle" closes the Top10 (8-10).

After an amazing six week chartrun in the Top10, Leaves' Eyes' first chart entry ever leaves that part for its first time (6-11), though "Across The Sea" gets certified with Gold this week as the first song released this year to do so. Emmelie de Forest's "History" also drops out of the Top10, but with a surprisingly small drop (10-12). Her other chart entry "Sanctuary" also only shows a small decline compared to last week (18-21). Due to all new entries, it's no surprise at all to see many more bigger drops, with the biggest ones going to "Night 13" by Auri (12-23), "Savior" by Iggy Azalea (11-25), "It's A Shame" by First Aid Kit (17-27), "Never Be The Same" by Camila Cabello (19-29), "Strangers" by Sigrid (16-30), "Dead" by Madison Beer (20-36) and the complete drop off the chart for Bruno Mars' "Finesse" (ex #23), Kylie's "Dancing" (ex #26) and Lady Gaga's "Joanne" (ex #27). Last but not least, it's also worth a mention that "Home" by Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors and Bebe Rexha goes Gold this week (29-34).

Saara Aalto owns the biggest climber of the week with "Monsters" while Madison Beer's "Dead" is the biggest loser.

    Album Top20
It's a busier-than-usual week for this time of the year, as four new arrivals made the charts this week, all of them being by names who already scored hits or successful albums on my charts in previous years. The highest of these new entries left the competition way behind though, and that's Brandi Carlile with her new album "By The Way, I Forgive You". The set starts at #1, making it her second chart topper following her previous album "The Firewatcher's Daughter" from 2015, which also just made it back to the Top20 this week at #20. "By The Way, I Forgive You" got over 100 plays in its first week, which is quite massive as i took a week off from many things and so the plays overall were really low and on some days even non existent.

The second highest arrival was a surprise release by former Disney girl Ashley Tisdale. Following the success of her 'Music Sessions' on her YouTube Channel, the actress and singer decided to release the "Music Sessions, Vol. 1" EP on Saturday, which makes it to #2 this week. It's her first album or EP release since my album charts started back in 2010, though it's her third entry so far as her two studio albums "Headstrong" (released in 2007) and "Guilty Pleasure" (released in 2009) already made short appearances in 2013. Singles-wise it's a completely different story, as she already collected eight chart entries, with all of them making the Top3 and six of them even to the top. With "Suddenly", Ashley even owns the most successful song of all time when it comes to my charts, as the ballad spent 69 weeks on the charts back in 2008 and 2009, when there was just a weekly Top10.

Back to this weeks Album Top20. The other two new entries were "XV - Best Of" by German Pagan-Folk band Faun (#4) and "I" by German DJ/Producer Felix Jaehn (#7). The latter is Felix' debut album, but he already made a big impression on the singles charts with "Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better)" featuring Jasmine Thompson back in 2015, while Faun's last album "Midgard" got certified with Gold.

The rest of the Top10: The Dark Element's self-titled album drops 1-3, Emmelie de Forest's "History" is down 2-5, followed by "Sign Of The Dragonhead" by Leaves' Eyes (3-6). When it comes to charts positions, this may not be the best week for Leaves' Eyes, but not only their single "Across The Sea", but also their album goes Gold this week, still making it a great week for the band. "Waves" by Rachel Platten (5-8), "Ruins" by First Aid Kit (6-9) and the soundtrack for 'Fifty Shades Freed' (4-10) make the Top10 complete.

Justin Timberlake's "Man Of The Woods" (8-11), Halsey's "hopeless fountain kingdom" (9-12), Anette Olzon's "Shine" (10-13) and Madison Beer's "As She Pleases" (7-14) all leave the upper half.

Thanks for coming by!

Yes, i have to admit i already liked this when his album came out back in 2016, so i'm surprised it's a single just now and even becomes a 'hit' in Germany :o

Tansike wrote:Oh, it got the same release date? :o Somehow i completely forgot about that, and i think i also didn't think about this back when it got released, because i only got Red and not the other one, which would have been cooler after all... :-? :oops: :x

Don't get me wrong, i still enjoyed the season finale, it was just not as strong as i was hoping for, especially after having 3 brilliant episodes just before the finale...
Yeah i agree there, they're doing an amazing job creating new TV series. I've heard of Hulu but i guess it's US only iirc. Netflix is the only thing i use so far, but this may change someday as there's a lot out there at the moment and it's definitely the future when it comes to watching TV. Speaking about TV series, are you watching RuPaul's Drag Race?
Maybe Yellow could be the game that really gets you back into playing Pokémon again...? ;) #nostalgiapower

I had no idea that Hulu was US-only - but you're totally right! You're not missing out on much, though. The only Hulu original show that I really got into was Difficult People - and they just cancelled it after three seasons :cry: I've only seen an episode or two of Drag Race that a friend showed me a while ago. Are you a pretty avid follower? Is there a season going on right now? Would you (or your man) ever audition...?

Tansike wrote:Fingers crossed for that! I haven't followed the charts at all lately so i have no idea if the video helped. If not, then i still hope she continues to promote the song, as i think it could do really well. The general public just needs to know it exists. Oh, okay... this doesn't sound too promising :(
No re-entry following the video release :cry: So its UK chart run is just *95* - OUT. Hopefully her Sigala collaboration will fare better...

Tansike wrote:That would make sense, but including "Most Girls" would be a good choice too as it did quite well in Australia and the US iirc (well, for her standards at least). I'm sure she announces it soon, as another pop girl i'm currently rooting for also finally announced her debut album (Anne-Marie), and it will include a song from 2016! Zara Larsson or Dua Lipa also did the same, so i can see that with Hailee too. It'll be interesting to see how they treat "Capital Letters", as it's more like a soundtrack single and not really 'hers', if you get what i mean.
Yeah, "Most Girls" wasn't a TOTAL flop (Top 20 in Australia, Top 40 in the UK, etc.), I've just never been a big fan of the song, so I'd rather get as many new (and potentially better) tracks as possible on this upcoming album :lol: At first I thought "Probably not" about "Capital Letters" being on it...but "Love Me Like You Do" did end up on Delirium, so maybe it just depends on how well it does?

Tansike wrote:Yes :cry: I was already ready for my Album Top20 to have only Gaga albums in the Top5 and at least 10-15 songs from her to be on the Singles Top40... :lol: :oops:
:o She really doesn't understand just how much she missed out on (and the pain she caused...) :cry:

Tansike wrote:Also... don't you count "Break Free" as his song also? :oops:
Nah - I don't include featured appearances in an artist's overall hit tally. "Featuring" just gets used SO broadly: sometimes the song's a proper duet between both artists, sometimes the featured guest only appears for 15-20 seconds, sometimes the featured guest only provides background vocals, sometimes the feature is just the producer who doesn't actually contribute any vocals at all, etc. In most of those cases, I don't think the featured guest deserves equal credit/success (if the producer gets mentioned, why not the writers too? The song wouldn't exist without them either.) I guess I could decide on a case-by-case/song-by-song basis, but for now I just have the consistent rule of only crediting the lead act for chart histories.

Tansike wrote:YASSS. I already took a short look on your charts (i actually do so every week - only a comment is missing, i know... :oops: :oops: :oops: ) ... and i'm SOOO happy to see her success there! I already tried to catch up with the missed weekly charts this week though i didn't post it yet as i want to post everything together, so... i hope i'll be ready on Monday or Tuesday. Time is just a very special thing for me at the moment :oops:
Ha, nooo worries - I'm actually really flattered to know you still check my chart sometimes (even without commenting) :D I just hope everything's going OK with you after that "time is a very special thing" comment!

Tansike wrote:So... you say 'I'd do my Year-End Countdowns' ... so this means you also didn't do one just for you? Or did you do that for 2017?
Ha, sorry - I really need to proofread my posts better :lol: I did compile one for 2017 (just in a Word Doc and then made a playlist in iTunes.)

Tansike wrote:Haha... yeah, it did it! I was so obsessed with "My Way" during that week though so it was even a quite easy number one for One Bit and Noah Cyrus. Though i don't think it will show nearly as much longevity as "Again" did. Oh, glad to hear that screenshot made you interested in the video, and i have to agree - i love how colorful it is! I saw a comment there saying it's like a mix of Sia stuff and Alice In Wonderland, which fits very well as a description.
:o Exactly!

Tansike wrote:Yes, she did it :cry: 8-) Well deserved IMO! Now she onkly needs to release "Collide" to get another smash... btw, speaking of "Collide", i only discovered this week that she performed it on James Corden's show last month and Billboard even said it's a single, plus it shortly appeared as a single on Wikipedia (though that one got removed now). So... i'm not sure if i should let it onto my chart now or not. A shame on me for not checking it out when it got released as a promotional single... :x
Let it chart! Let it chart! Let it chart! :D :D :D

• I'm definitely enjoying the turnover on top lately! Now that I think about it, a song hasn't spent more than three weeks at No. 1 here since..."Symphony"? :o
• I love that line in "Heaven" about how "they say 'all good boys go to heaven', but bad boys bring heaven to you." Overall, though, I've actually been more drawn to her other offering on the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack: "Are You."
• I don't follow Delta too closely (she's had a couple big Paulboard hits over the years with "Sitting On Top Of The World" and "Heart Hypnotic", but I've never checked out any of her albums.) "Think About You" is making a VERY strong first impression, though! I'll definitely be adding this one to my library ASAP...
• I was SHOCKED to see something other than "Seeing Blind" get selected as Niall's next single! I like "On The Loose" well enough, but "Seeing Blind" seemed like the beyond-obvious choice! It's one of (if not THE) catchiest song on the album, it's the only feature on the album, AND they're touring together!

Yet another welcoming chart, Tansike! :D

The only Hulu original show that I really got into was Difficult People - and they just cancelled it after three seasons :cry: I've only seen an episode or two of Drag Race that a friend showed me a while ago. Are you a pretty avid follower? Is there a season going on right now? Would you (or your man) ever audition...?
I’m not really sure about that! :oops: But yeah, there’s also a nostalgia factor around that one and I love how you’re able to get all starter Pokémon there.

I think it’s possible to get Hulu here as well, though not really legally… but glad to hear I’m not missing out too much. Unfortunately, there are only three seasons of ‘Drag Race’ available over here, and that are seasons 7 to 9. I’ve seen all of them at least two times and yesterday I re-started with season 7 again. It’s hard to rank them, but seasons 7 and 9 are better than eight. It’s definitely a very fun show to watch! :)
As for your other question, I’m not into doing this at all, but my man would like to try it out one day, simply because he thinks doing make-up etc. is very interesting.

phoenix98 wrote:No re-entry following the video release :cry: So its UK chart run is just *95* - OUT. Hopefully her Sigala collaboration will fare better...
Ouch! :( I hope so as well… anyways, at least she’s doing more than fine on the album charts, and that’s what matters for artists and labels in the end.

phoenix98 wrote:Yeah, "Most Girls" wasn't a TOTAL flop (Top 20 in Australia, Top 40 in the UK, etc.), I've just never been a big fan of the song, so I'd rather get as many new (and potentially better) tracks as possible on this upcoming album :lol: At first I thought "Probably not" about "Capital Letters" being on it...but "Love Me Like You Do" did end up on Delirium, so maybe it just depends on how well it does?
Agree with you there, “Most Girls” was a fun pop song but not as good as “Starving”, “Capital Letters” or “Let Me Go” for example. I wouldn’t mind CL to be on the album since it’s such a good pop song :cool:

phoenix98 wrote: :o She really doesn't understand just how much she missed out on (and the pain she caused...) :cry:
I know :cry: …okay, to be fair, it’s not really her fault and I’m obviously sorry for her to be in a bad shape at the moment.

phoenix98 wrote:Nah - I don't include featured appearances in an artist's overall hit tally. "Featuring" just gets used SO broadly: sometimes the song's a proper duet between both artists, sometimes the featured guest only appears for 15-20 seconds, sometimes the featured guest only provides background vocals, sometimes the feature is just the producer who doesn't actually contribute any vocals at all, etc. In most of those cases, I don't think the featured guest deserves equal credit/success (if the producer gets mentioned, why not the writers too? The song wouldn't exist without them either.) I guess I could decide on a case-by-case/song-by-song basis, but for now I just have the consistent rule of only crediting the lead act for chart histories.
Hmm. I think I get your point, but as you’ve probably seen, I include these featurings to all artists discographies. Sometimes this can do a lot for some artists discographies, for example Nicki Minaj, or also Beyoncé, who is far from being a hit maker on my charts yet she has Gaga’s “Telephone” in her Discography.

phoenix98 wrote:Ha, nooo worries - I'm actually really flattered to know you still check my chart sometimes (even without commenting) :D I just hope everything's going OK with you after that "time is a very special thing" comment!
Of course I do that!
Yes, everything is ok (apart from me pissing off some people because they have to wait days or even weeks until they get a reply from me on WhatsApp, Facebook & Co.). There’s just a lot of things happening right now and I barely have time just for me. Yesterday I even ‘dumped’ by man as I finally wanted some time for me, and usually Tuesday afternoon is our afternoon. Also, a week ago, I went to a short trip from Sunday to Wednesday and I barely visited UKMix & Co. and it actually felt so good :oops:

phoenix98 wrote:Ha, sorry - I really need to proofread my posts better :lol: I did compile one for 2017 (just in a Word Doc and then made a playlist in iTunes.)
Aaahhh… any chance to see that list? :P :wink:

• I love that line in "Heaven" about how "they say 'all good boys go to heaven', but bad boys bring heaven to you." Overall, though, I've actually been more drawn to her other offering on the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack: "Are You."
• I don't follow Delta too closely (she's had a couple big Paulboard hits over the years with "Sitting On Top Of The World" and "Heart Hypnotic", but I've never checked out any of her albums.) "Think About You" is making a VERY strong first impression, though! I'll definitely be adding this one to my library ASAP...
• I was SHOCKED to see something other than "Seeing Blind" get selected as Niall's next single! I like "On The Loose" well enough, but "Seeing Blind" seemed like the beyond-obvious choice! It's one of (if not THE) catchiest song on the album, it's the only feature on the album, AND they're touring together!

Yet another welcoming chart, Tansike! :D
Yes, you’re right! It’s actually a very rare feat to get more than two weeks on top these past years. I just looked it up (also because I was interested in this by myself as well) and it even happens less often than I thought it would. Here are the songs with 3+ weeks in the last few years:

Spoiler:
2018:
“Across The Sea” by Leaves’ Eyes (3 weeks)

2017:
“Symphony” by Clean Bandit feat. Zara Larsson (5 weeks)
“If I Wasn’t Your Daughter” by Lena (3 weeks)
“The Ghost And The Reaper” by The Dark Element (3 weeks)

“Spirit Animal” by Kerli spent 1 week at #1 in 2016 and 2 weeks in 2017

2016:
“Feral Hearts” by Kerli (3 weeks)
“Lost On You” by LP (3 weeks)
“Blossom” by Kerli (3 weeks)
“Demons In You” by Tarja feat. Alissa White-Gluz (7 weeks)

“Ghost” by Jamie-Lee Kriewitz spent 2 weeks at #1 in 2015 and 1 week in 2016

2015:
“Élan” by Nightwish (7 weeks)
“Hello” by Adele (3 weeks)

2014:
“Shatter Me” by Lindsey Stirling feat. Lzzy Hale (3 weeks)
“Break Free” by Ariana Grande feat. Zedd (9 weeks)

“Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus spent 1 week at #1 in 2014 and 8 weeks in 2013

2013:
“Slow Down” by Selena Gomez (4 weeks)

“I Knew You Were Trouble.” by Taylor Swift spent 3 weeks at #1 in 2013 and 2 weeks in 2012
“The Lucky Ones” by Kerli spent 1 week at #1 in 2013 and 2 weeks in 2012


So 18 songs with more than just two weeks atop the charts in a bit more than five years…
(sorry for going so much into this topic now, but as I said, I was very interested in this by myself so i thought I’d post everything like this… :oops: )

VERY happy you mention that line of “Heaven” as I love it as well! “Are You” is another nice tune but I think “Heaven” is definitely the stronger of these two, plus they’re also pushing it as a single so that’s why it’s charting.

Glad you enjoyed Delta’s new song. I only checked her out when she released her last album “Wings Of The Wild”, which was quite strong and therefor I checked her earlier albums out as well and somehow I was kinda sad how I never discovered her earlier. Excited to see if “Think About You” will be able to enter your charts :)

Hmm… I’m not that shocked tbh. Okay, “Seeing Blind” was such an obvious choice to me, but “On The Loose” also screamed single to me and so I’m not that surprised they’re releasing it. However, as you say, there were so many things speaking for a release of “Seeing Blind” and here’s hope they will release it after “On The Loose”. Maybe they were afraid that it would bomb because Maren already has a hit with “The Middle” now?

Also, I see you’re quoting Saara Aalto’s “Monster”, which you didn’t quote when it debuted a week ago, so I guess you checked it out and enjoyed it? :D

Thanks so much :D

Oh, it's not flopping at all for his standards, as it already has double as many points as his second most successful album on my charts :oops:

It's a similar case with "Say Something" which is already by far his biggest hit here... :oops:

thanks so much for all comments

week 09/2018 – 1 march 2018 You Owe Me Mad Love

Image
    Singles Top40
While there were tons of new arrivals on the Singles Top40 last week, it’s slowing down a bit with eight new entries on the charts this time. That’s obviously still a big number, however, most of them appear quite low on the charts, while lots of last weeks new entries arrived in the upper half and some of them are having an amazing second week.

Nonetheless, the number one remains unchanged, with “Friends” by Mashmello and Anne-Marie being able to spend a second week atop the charts. It’s followed by Saara Aalto’s “Monsters”, which sits at number two for another week as well. Hailee Steinfeld & BloodPop climb back to their peak with “Capital Letters” (4-3), completing the Top3 this time.

The highest of the eight new entries just misses the Top10 and comes in at #11 and is the third of three possible ESC entries for Saara Aalto, called “Queens”. The second song “Domino” is falling 13-18 in its second week on the chart. Following three successful chart hits, Imagine Dragons already released a brand new song called “Next To Me”, which they added to their third album “Evolve”. It immediately becomes yet another Top20 hit for the band as it starts at #17. Completely new on my charts is Janelle Monáe. The critically acclaimed R&B singer is ready to release her third studio album soon, and “Make Me Feel” is the first track of it which becomes her charts debut as a lead artist at #28. Overall, it’s her second entry, as she was featured on Grimes’ “Venus Fly” in 2017, which debuted & peaked at #2 and got certified with Gold. Also making the Top30 is “Lullabye”, a collaboration by Sigala and Paloma Faith, which comes in at #30. It’s already their second collaboration following “Changing”, which reached #27 back in 2014.

Still four entries to go, and they’re all pretty low. Bea Miller gets her very first notation ever as the “Aurora” album release pushes the single “S.L.U.T.” onto the charts (#34), followed by “We’re Going Home” by Vance Joy (#35), which also benefits from an album release and becomes his second notation following “Riptide” (#14 in 2014). “Like I Do” by David Guetta, Martin Garrix & Brooks is new at #38 while Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign’s “Psycho” is the final arrival at #39. Post Malone had one of the biggest worldwide hits of last year with “Rockstar”, but “Psycho” is his first entry ever on my charts.

The rest of the best: Two of last weeks new entries make a big jump and reach the Top5. The first of them is “You Owe Me”, which becomes only the second Top10 hit ever for The Chainsmokers (19-4), following the Platinum certified Top3 hit “Don’t Let Me Down” (2016). Not only going by peak, but also by points this is already their second biggest hit on my charts now. The other climber is “Mad Love” by Sean Paul, David Guetta and Becky G (17-5). The rest of the Top10 remains quite stable, with “My Way” by One Bit & Noah Cyrus (3-6), “The Joke” by Brandi Carlile (5-7), “Lay You Down” by Nina Kraljic (8-8), “Sorry” by Halsey (6-9) and “We Are…” by Noah Cyrus & MØ (7-10).

“The Middle” by Zedd, Grey & Maren Morris (10-13) and Inna’s “Me Gusta” (9-20) are both leaving the Top20, the latter with a rather big drop. Meanwhile, Julia Michaels is about to get her first Top10 hit as a lead artist as her “Heaven” rises 14-12. There are a few more interesting things happening in the lower half of the Top40. “Again” by Noah Cyrus and XXXTENTACION has to leave the upper half for its very first time after an impressive 22 weeks as it falls 20-24. Madison Beer’s “Dead” recovers 36-27 after a harsh drop last week, while Måns Zelmerlöw’s “Happyland” (32-29) and Niall Horan’s “On The Loose” (38-33) both reach new peaks. Last but not least, there’s one new certification this time, and that one goes to “The Ghost And The Reaper” by The Dark Element, as it gets certified with Platinum as their second song to do so (24-25).

The Chainsmokers’ “You Owe Me” is the biggest climber while Inna’s “Me Gusta” is the biggest loser this week.

    Album Top20
It’s not the most entertaining week on the album charts, as many albums remain quite stable. However, there were two new releases which made some impression, but not even they were strong enough to change the Top2. Brandi Carlile spends a second week atop the Album Top20 with “By The Way, I Forgive You”, which even increased its plays in the second week to another 100+ plays, while Ashley Tisdale remains at number two with the “Music Sessions, Vol. 1” EP.

The two new entries are both albums by artists who already released albums and/or EPs in the past, but none of them made it onto my charts, which means these new entries are their first notations ever. Former X-Factor contestant Bea Miller grabs the better debut with “Aurora” at #3, followed by Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy who enters the charts at #4 with “Nation Of Two”.

The rest of the Top10: The Dark Element’s self-titled album goes down 3-5, Emmelie de Forest’s “History” slips 5-6, followed by Faun’s “XV – Best Of” (4-7), Rachel Platten’s “Waves” (8-8), Leaves’ Eyes’ “Across The Sea” (6-9) and First Aid Kit’s “Ruins” (9-10).

The soundtrack for ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ (10-11) and Felix Jaehn’s “I” (7-12) both leave the upper half. Meanwhile, there’s no re-entry for another week, which means the lower half of the charts also remains very stable once again. It’s worth a mention that P!nk spends her 20th consecutive week in the charts with “Beautiful Trauma” (19-17), even though only five of them were in the Top10, which is quite a remarkable feat.

^ i agree, the whole album is actually quite good. A shame he only seems to get recognition in Australa at the moment.

the competition is so stiff and it seems like the general public already has already gone past this sound and genre in general

^ oh yeah, that genre isn‘t as popular as it was when he released „Riptide“, but i still think it‘s not one of the least popular genres. I guess he just needs a catchy, more generic song to get a hit again...

Hey Tansike :D

1 (1) Marshmello & Anne-Marie – Friends

A great #1 i really think FRIENDS could become Marshmello's most successful single to date. The music video to the track is amazing and really sells the song. It's currently #6 so could crack my top 5 tomorrow.

2 (2) Saara Aalto – Monsters

Aww Saara did take a tumble down my chart as i wasn't listening to Monsters as much. Domino was set to enter at #20 but then one particular new single came out last Friday and blew the entire chart out of the water. :P

4 (19) The Chainsmokers – You Owe Me

I was a bit unsure of this at first but the music video is actually pretty cool. I'm more shocked as the singer's vocals, i can't really explain it but his vocals sound so different compared to songs like Closer and Paris. It's like it's another guy doing all the vocals and this guy from The Chainsmokers is lip syncing. :lol:

11 (NEW) Saara Aalto – Queens

It's another great song from Saara and admittedly i think overall she's delivered 3/3 pure pop gems but for me Monsters is the best. If Finland opt for either this or Domino i'll be on board but admittedly disappointed that they didn't vote for the obvious hit.

14 (11) Leaves’ Eyes – Across The Sea *G*

Congrats on not coming last in FSC. :lol: :oops: I actually gave this 5 points as i liked the musicality and the female vocals. The man doing those growling bits hindered me from giving the song more points but overall i liked this. I also thought it was an average month and i wasn't that fussed with the australian winner. :oops:

16 (15) Sofi Tukker feat. NERVO, The Knocks & Alisa Ueno – Best Friend

Yay for stability even if it is starting to slip downwards. Still one of my favourites at the moment. :D

17 (NEW) Imagine Dragons – Next To Me

When this was announced my gut instinct was that it'd be very successful coming off the back of Thunder and Believer, two big hits for Imagine Dragons. But when i did check out Next to me i was kinda disappointed. Needless to say, this isn't even close to entering my chart tomorrow. :(

28 (NEW) Janelle Monáe – Make Me Feel

OMG this song is everything. I'm guessing you're not as hooked on Make me feel? I honestly can't fault this track, its just so powerful and amazing and i adore the Prince influences. I honestly don't know much about Janelle Monáe apart from she featured on fun. We are young which i loved from 2012.

30 (NEW) Sigala & Paloma Faith – Lullaby

This is looking set for a high entry in my chart although as much as i do love this new Sigala song, it's not quite as strong as Came here for love.

33 (38) Niall Horan – On The Loose

So nice to see my 'ickle Niall climbing up here. Its return to my top 20 was short lived but maybe if there's an official music video that could help boost the song back into my chart again. If the record label have any sense, they'll be filming the video for Seeing blind right now ready for its grand premier in a few weeks time. :wink:

38 (NEW) David Guetta, Martin Garrix & Brooks – Like I Do

Yes, this is so generic but i can't help but love it. :lol: It's all about Martin Garrix as the whole track sounds like his style. I don't even detect a hint of Guetta in this track so god knows why he's credited. :P

39 (NEW) Post Malone feat. Ty Dolla $ign – Psycho

Somewhat surprised as seeing this here. I've still not heard the entire track, just the iTunes preview and that failed to ignite me with any excitement. Just another US rapper doing well on Spotify. :roll:
