Now, I realised - with some surprise - while doing the UKmixParade year-end countdown recently that I hadn't posted any of my own year-end charts here since the one that covered 2011 ! I have always based the annual lists on tracks first released in that year - even if it was some time later that I discovered and charted them - with the result that they can't really be finalised until all the hits released in a particular year have dropped out of my monthly top forty. However, by now, that does seem to have happened for 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 - so at around the middle of each of the first four months of this year, I'll be posting an extra list looking back on those years. Even if 2016 and 2017 can't be finalised by May and June respectively, I think I'll then do as up-to-date as possible versions of the lists for those years too.

When I posted my 2011 chart, I wrote:So how was 2011 for music ? Well, we were definitely beginning to enter a ( sadly, possibly irreversible ) decline in the availablity of music in physical formats - and perhaps the general quality of releases was decreasing too. Just fifty-five from a total of eighty-one breakers from 2011 entered the chart, making this a rare year in which I would have to consider the other CD singles that I bought, but didn't regard as good enough to even list as breakers - for a full-length chart.
And things haven't really improved since then - indeed, they have become much worse. There were slightly more breakers from 2012 than from 2011 - eighty-eight. However, there were fewer hits, just fifty. But there were other 2012 singles that I did buy, which didn't seem to me to be quite good enough to even make the breakers. Looking back on these now, some of them might just possibly go on to appear in the breakers in the future, as I am continuing to bring in selections of less-than-current releases as well as brand new recordings in the hope of creating more chart entries and faster chart turnover. But others, five years on, are creating more of a feeling of "why did I ever think that was worth buying?"

So I have expanded the format of the annual chart very slightly - instead of just a single lengthy list, I have divided it into several parts - one of them completely new, but also disappointing and frustrating. Early in the present decade, we sadly reached the situation in which some tracks did not receive any physical release at all - even on a compilation album, which (whether on vinyl or CD) would enable them to be eligible for inclusion in any of the higher sections. Thankfully, this doesn't yet seem to be a major problem - with only two tracks from 2012 falling into this category. Including them brings the total number of hits, breakers and others here to 122. So - after what turned into a somewhat longer introduction than I had planned when I started ! - here is everything that I liked, even slightly, from 2012 . . . . .

Thanks again, Benny ! Just to comment further on a couple of those that you mentioned:

13 03 09 LAST DANCE Avicii

I was checking just now whether that had an official release as a single in many countries - it didn't in the UK. It seems not - it was only a rather minor chart success in France and Spain.

31 23 13 ANOTHER LOVE Tom Odell

This one is there pretty much entirely based on the "Zwette" version - which I think I remember you expressed a preference for too back at the time. It doesn't feel like five years ago - but time just seems to pass so quickly nowadays . . . . . .

Incidentally, congratulations on your very high position in the "Favourite Members" poll. As I voted this time, you climbed twice as many places as you would otherwise have done ! :D







Now, time for the second of this month's revisits to a much more bygone age. I was twenty-two years old, in my second year as an audit assistant, and (by using timer-switches to record them while I was at work) enjoying the chart shows of several European countries. That's how I discovered most of my favourites of thirty-one years ago :

I also prefer the 'Zwette' remix of 'Another Love' to the original version.
Thanks for your vote and congratulations to your high position as well, you were also very high in my votes! :D

So I guess that 'Waterloo' charted because of the remake by Doctor and the Medics?

Thanks again, Benny - it's difficult to remember thirty-one years later, but I suspect that this was indeed the reason for Abba's version of "Waterloo" reaching my chart at that time !







Now . . . . . strangely enough, a member of Abba has a brand new entry in my very latest top forty !

Eleven climbers in my second chart of 2018 include a new number one – my 231st, and the first to be sung in French for two and a half years. Twenty-one-year-old Louane moves up four places to the top with the former Chartbuster “Si T’etais La”. Although not making much of an impact elsewhere, this has already spent many weeks near to the top of the charts in her French homeland, peaking at number two. However, three of the other climbers are close behind her in the top five. Portugal. The Man rise into the runner-up spot with “Feel It Still”, now a top twenty hit in the UK – while both Earl and Ofenbach follow up their considerable successes “Tongue Tied” and “Be Mine” with “All That Glitters” and “Katchi” respectively. “All That Glitters” is this month’s Rapid Riser, racing up from sixteen to four, while “Katchi” ascends four places to number five. Last month’s number one, “One More Time”, completes the top five by sliding to number three for Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark. That’s one of twenty-five tracks moving down this time. The others include the longest laster from Hooverphonic – “You”, down six places to 35 in its thirteenth month – and joint fastest fallers from the Mixtures and Clean Bandit featuring Zara Larsson. “The Pushbike Song” dives from 25 to 34 - while “Symphony”, the only current top forty hit not available on vinyl, could be in its final month in the chart, descending from 30 to 39. Meanwhile, there are four new entries – including a chart debut for Fatima Yamaha, a pseudonym for Dutch electronic music producer Bas Bron. “Araya” arrives at number 25. Seventy-two-year-old singer, composer and producer Ola Håkansson makes his debut eight places higher with “The Way You Are”, a duet which was recorded in 1986, together with the slightly younger and considerably more well-known Agnetha Faltskog. Now sixty-seven years old, she has previously had over a dozen hits as part of Abba and seven more solo successes – including the number ones “I Won’t Let You Go” and “The One Who Loves You Now”. Bizarrely, though, this duo is not the oldest entering the top forty this time – as Chas and Dave, now seventy-four and seventy-two respectively, arrive at number 40 with “One Fing ‘N’ Anuvver”, originally the title track of their first album in 1975 but re-recorded much more recently. This now becomes their eighth hit in my chart – while Pink gets her third with the highest new entry. Last month’s Chartbuster, and the title track of her latest and massively successful album, “Beautiful Trauma” crashes straight in at number ten.

This month saw the sad deaths of two very different female singers who clearly had special places in the hearts of vast numbers of people in their Irish and French homelands – as well as being extremely well known internationally for some of the most successful releases from their long careers in the music industry. Dolores O’Riordan, leader of the Cranberries, passed away at the age of forty-six, for reasons not yet explained – while France Gall reached the age of seventy, but had battled various cancers and experienced other tragedies in her life. “Dreams” and “Ella, Elle L’a” – among many singles reappearing in the charts of several different countries in the last few weeks – now return to the breakers. There too for the first time are five previously overlooked potential hits from the year 2001 – “King Kong” by E-Rotic, “Je T’aime (Moi Non Plus)” from Sven Vath with Miss Kittin, “Us Against The World” by Play, “Win The Race” from Modern Talking and “You’re My Mate” by Right Said Fred. And there are three somewhat more recent releases that could also be chartbound. London Grammar reached number two in my top forty five years ago with “Strong”, and could finally follow this up with “Hell To The Liars” – while I have taken quite some time to see even the slightest merit in any release by the twenty-six-year-old singer, songwriter, guitarist and record producer that is Ed Sheeran. It’s the latest song to spend many weeks at number one in the charts of multiple countries, “Perfect”, that could be about to give him his first success in my top forty. However, the new Chartbuster is by a 41-year-old singer possibly most well-known in his Belgian homeland for his cover version of David Bowie’s “Life On Mars”, which was a number one hit there fifteen years ago. He is currently back in the top ten for the first time since then, with my Record of the Month for February 2018 - Jasper Steverlinck, and “Here’s To Love”.

Thanks, Benny - the breakers chart seems to be becoming more and more dominated by the older singles, perhaps largely because there are still relatively few new releases impressing me these days. The state of current music continues to become worse rather than better, at least as far as I'm concerned - back catalogue titles now typically fill more than a quarter of my latest top forty, and I don't think that trend is likely to be reversed any time soon . . . . .







But now it's back to a time when I was finding much more to like and buy in the charts of the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and other parts of Europe. I was nineteen years old, half way through my three years at University, and these were my favourites of thirty-four years ago :

Nino De Angelo also recorded an Italian version of 'Jenseits von Eden' called 'La valle dell'Eden', which is my favourite version of the song.

Thanks again, Benny. It's clear that the English version of the song by Masquerade (the late Drafi Deutscher, I'm sure you know) was the first to make an impact with me - and it was quickly released in the UK, but wasn't a hit here at all. However, all three versions by Nino De Angelo were combined in my chart, and went on to become the most successful there. I heard both the German and Italian versions in the weekly Europarade programmes - but it wasn't until a while later that his own English version was released in the UK and Ireland. Although it spent nine weeks in the top 100 in the UK, it only reached a disappointing peak of number 57 - but in Ireland it was in the top thirty for nine weeks, peaking at number eight ! Meanwhile, Vicky Leandros recorded versions in Dutch and French - and they also reached the top three in my chart. I don't think there are many other songs that have gone so high in my chart for three different artists.








Now, exactly halfway through February, it's time to look back more fully on a sadly much less impressive year than 1984 in the second of my new monthly revisits to the past - but not very far into the past. 2013 is that year - and even taking purchases that weren't even good enough to reach the breakers into account, I can't quite manage to complete a full annual top 100. I think the same problem will be equally true for all further years since then - indeed, I fear that there will be gradually fewer and fewer eligible releases as we get nearer to the present. But this is only the second time in all the years I have been interested in music that there hasn't been enough I have liked - the first time being 2004.

A more positive development (for me, at least) was that by 2013 vinyl releases seemed to be starting to become more widely available. Indeed, out of forty-eight tracks of this year that entered my top forty, just two were on CD only - and just six of the thirty-four others that didn't make it through the breakers were equally impossible to find on vinyl. A mere fifteen other 2013 releases impressed me slightly at the time - and, five years later, I'm struggling a bit to recall why in some cases ! None of those were released on vinyl - but I was able to find all of them on either CD singles or (typically more expensively) CD albums. All in all, though, that's a total of just ninety-seven 2013 releases that I bought. And here they are !
