Five non-movers in my new chart for May 2010 include last month’s number one, as Dash Berlin and Emma Hewitt remain at the top with “Waiting”. However, among eleven climbers (six of which were new entries last time) are “Telephone” by Lady GaGa and Beyonce, up three places to number two, and “Better Run” from Tocadisco and Nadia Ali - this month’s Rapid Riser, which races from 24 to number three. And the top two of this month’s five new entries could also be challenging for pole position next time. Bananarama reached number one in my chart seventeen years ago with “Last Thing On My Mind”, and now have their seventh hit with “Love Don’t Live Here”. It enters the top forty with an impressive 111-place climb to number eight - but unfortunately only entered the UK top 200 at a dismal number 114, and is highly unlikely to make further progress. There aren’t many record and CD shops within easy reach of me now - but all those that are currently have vast quantities of unsold copies remaining, on CD single, seven-inch vinyl and twelve-inch vinyl. So if there is anyone other than me who likes this, they certainly should have no trouble finding a copy!

Meanwhile, April’s Chartbuster by Shakira, “Gypsy”, may or may not be getting a physical release in the UK - but it’s doing well elsewhere in Europe, and enters my chart at number 18. It’s also her seventh hit, and although she has never had a number one on my chart, four of the other six peaked at number two - “Whenever Wherever / Suerte”, “Underneath Your Clothes”, “Objection (Tango)” and “Hips Don’t Lie”. Two of the other three acts with new entries this month are doubling their tally of hits. Owl City continue to climb with “Fireflies”, now at number nine - and the follow-up, “Vanilla Twilight”, arrives at number 32. And eight places lower, Laurent Wolf steps in with “Walk The Line”. The first hit for this tribal-house producer from Toulouse, France was “Wash My World”, which reached number 28 at the beginning of 2009. The final new entry is the first for Londoner Paloma Faith, in at 39 with “Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful”. Not far above that are the lowest of nineteen hits sliding down this month - the fastest faller and the longest laster, both former Chartbusters. After nine months in the top forty, Chicane tumble fifteen places to number 37 with “Poppiholla”, while Jem is still around for a thirteenth month with “It’s Amazing”, down three places at 36.

Performer, impresario, self-publicist and former manager of the Sex Pistols, Malcolm McLaren died this month at the age of 64. Among his other productions were two tracks that reached my top ten in the early 1980’s for Bow Wow Wow - but he also charted with four releases bearing his own name, all of which now return to the top forty breakers. Another former hit that returns to the breakers, but for a rather different reason, is “Boomerang” by Blümchen. Originally recorded when she was little more than half her present age, this was one of several Eurodance songs with which Jasmin Wagner enjoyed major success in the German-speaking countries in the late 1990’s - and one of seven tracks that reached my top forty, although none of them made it into the top ten. Having since moved away from music - briefly into acting and presenting, but more into charity fund-raising - it must have come as quite a surprise for her to discover, on or around her recent 30th birthday, that one of her old songs had been selected (possibly by some entirely random process?!) to be downloaded in vast quantities in order to prevent the latest reality show winner, Mehrzad Marashi, from reaching number one in the German charts. A few months ago, Joe McElderry was beaten by Rage Against The Machine in similar circumstances in the UK - but unfortunately in Germany “Boomerang” could only reach number seven. That did, however, represent a four-place improvement on its original peak from 1996!

There are seven brand new potential hits this month - and three of them are by Belgian acts. Stromae is 25-year-old Brussels-born Paul van Haver, whose single “Alors On Danse” has already reached number one in several countries - while Peter Luts was previously with Lasgo, but is currently in the top ten in his homeland under his own name with “The Rain”. And, despite a German-sounding name, Das Pop are a Ghent-based band who have been together for over a decade - but are only now achieving chart success in Belgium, and releases much further afield. Their latest material includes the single “Wings”. The other four new breakers are by acts with one previous hit each. Neither Marina and the Diamonds nor Rihanna have had a number one on my chart - but the others have! Dash Berlin follows up the current chart-topper “Waiting” with “Never Cry Again” - while the new Chartbuster, guaranteed to be a new entry in my June 2010 top forty, is the follow-up to a track that was number one in my chart last August and September, and reached the top twenty in the UK. The singer is now 31 years old - and is also a songwriter, model, mother of two, and the daughter of a former “Blue Peter” presenter. My Record of the Month for May 2010 is Sophie Ellis-Bextor, with “Bittersweet”.

Malcolm didn't actually produce Bow Wow Wow, he didn't produce his own records either! He was more executive producer/ composer/ ideas orchestrator!

Great to see a high new entry for once! Song is better than their last single though still far from classic 'Nanas. Nice to see Marina climbing, even if it is her previous song, not the current one! :lol:
Paloma song too is great.

Miss Kittin and The Hacker song/ video i've not been aware of! I didn't expect it to be so light and poppy - like a lost Moroder song, they're usually more hard-edged.

I planned to post a brief extra feature covering Blümchen's hits and breakers from my chart this month - after all, any excuse to post a picture of her is probably a good one - and I may yet find time to do that before the end of May. But 1996 is this month's randomly-chosen blast from the past, as I now set out a complete (and almost fully YouTube-linked) countdown of my top hundred of that year! So what were my tastes in music back then? Well.....



- Eighty-two tracks reached my monthly top forty - the second highest total of the decade, and one that has never been matched in any other year since then.

- At this time, I was regularly listening to and watching the chart shows of the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium - so almost everything here was a hit in at least one of those countries. (Germany, in particular, seems to have provided quite a lot!)

- Not much here should come as a surprise to anyone who has been following the 1996 weekly-ish retro chart thread in the Retro forum, in which I have given an indication of where each of the tracks voted have stood in my all-time chart, as most of them slide slowly down month-by-month as hits scoring in my current chart gradually overtake them. But the number one of this year is unlikely to ever be overtaken - placed at number 52 in that overall ranking, it's actually my top single of the whole decade.

- Bizarrely, nothing from 1996 that was a Record of the Month went on to reach my top ten, or finished up in the top thirty of the year - they all peaked somewhere in the range 11 to 15 !

- Several acts make more than one appearance in this year's list - including, with three each, E-rotic, 2 Brothers on the 4th Floor, Gina G, Mr President, Nicole and even Madonna, who did so only in the final stages of my preparation for this six-hour marathon, as I discovered two tracks erroneously listed that needed to be moved into 1995..... One of those was Marisa Turner's "Who's Gonna Kiss That Man", and the other would have been a fifth inclusion in this year for a certain young singer - who still has four entries, albeit all crammed into only an ten-place range some way down! And who's that? Back to where we started - it's Blümchen!



Here, then, is the full countdown of my favourites of fourteen years ago.....

That was already a featured year - I posted my top 67 of 1999 a few months ago, here:

That was one of just three tracks from my 1996 top 100 I couldn't find on YouTube - "Forever Love" by Jam Tronik and "You Can Do It" by Dorkas (one third of Mekado, the "do") being the others. However, I have now managed to find the video/audio of the Amber song, my number 13 of the year, here:

Thank you very much for the info provided. I have just taken a look to your top of 1999 and it's awesome. I definitely love the songs gathered on it.

Considering I fed myself on VIVA and followed extensively the German singles chart those days, I know every song of the top. With your chart, you met my expectations regarding those trance/dance songs that rocked the German music scene back at the very end of the century. Futura's Goodbye, Mythos'n DJ Cosmo's The Heart of the Ocean, Light Force's Take your time... they were all great tunes.

Anyway, and knowing you're a trance love such like I am, I miss some songs in your chart like Blank & Jones' Cream, Binary Finary's 1999, Mellow Trax's Phuture Vibes (well, this cannot be considered trance), Beam Vs. Cyrus & The Joker's Launch in Progress or one of my beloved acts those days Beam and Yanou's Rainbow of Mine, among many, many others. (I haven't included Too Much Rain as this was released by the end of 1998 and I bet you included this in its corresponding YE chart).

It's worth mentioning the appearing of two greats songs like Salvador Dali and Por qué te vas (can't mispell this). They were 'remakes' from real Spanish songs, but I do prefer these remakes! "Por qué te vas" by Masterboy is simply awesome, and I can't help remembering the Summer of 1999 when listening to it and crying for those memories left behind.

I'd a lot appreciate if you could share with me your chart archive for 1999. Musically speaking, 1999 was my greatest year ever - I started fallen in love with the music thanks to LOTS of songs released that year. I'm sure I will remember a number of them that I have already forgotten when I check your chart out.

Ah! And thank you very much for looking for the Amber's song so that I can listen to it. I'm very curious to it.

I'd a lot appreciate if you could share with me your chart archive for 1999. Musically speaking, 1999 was my greatest year ever - I started fallen in love with the music thanks to LOTS of songs released that year. I'm sure I will remember a number of them that I have already forgotten when I check your chart out.
I realised only as I posted my previous reply that the 1999 annual chart was the first one I posted, and I only included the 67 hits of that year, rather than a full top 100. Although there may not be quite as much of the same type of music that ground to a halt in my top 40 breakers back then, I have now put together a further list of all sixty other tracks from that year that didn't make it through the breakers into the top 40:

A few thoughts:

- I'm a little surprised that one of just five I couldn't find on YouTube was Dee-Tah's. I recall that, in the UK, both she and Emilia followed up their recent bigger hits "Relax" and "Big Big World" in the same week - but "Good Sign" was not stocked in Woolworths, and couldn't quite reach the top forty. But "El Paraiso Rico" was stocked by them, scraped into the top forty, and dozens of unsold copies remained in the bargain bins for months!

- I had no idea until today that the performers of the track at number 81 were actually an earlier, completely different line-up from the trio that were later killed / injured in the same plane crash as Melanie Thornton.

- Listening through them all (apart from five!) in the last three and a bit hours, the one that seemed to be placed rather too high was number 84. I'm not sure now what I saw in that Jessica Simpson offering - it was quite a disappointment after the far superior "I Wanna Love You Forever!

- Finally, I wonder if Scooch's Eurovision entry was at all inspired by the (probably not very well-known) track at number 107.....?

Me neither! I didn't know the Passion Fruit career ended because of this :(

Thank you very much for posting the rest of songs. I had absolutely forgotten about Junia, among others, until I have seen them again on your chart :)

Six of the top twelve are the only non-movers in this month’s new top forty - but they don’t include May’s number one, as Dash Berlin and Emma Hewitt are among nineteen fallers, sliding five places to number six with “Waiting”. My new number one is one of just nine climbers, and the second song to top my chart for the duo consisting of Keren Woodward and Sara Dallin.....Bananarama! Unfortunately, it’s a single that has proved even less successful in the UK charts than “Last Thing On My Mind”, which was my number one seventeen years ago - “Love Don’t Live Here” could only reach number 114, and doesn’t seem to have fared any better anywhere else. Narrowly missing out on a second number one, last month’s Chartbuster from Sophie Ellis-Bextor, “Bittersweet”, crashes in at number two, the highest of six new entries this month. The second highest is also for an act gaining their second hit - Marina and the Diamonds are in at number 15 with “I Am Not A Robot”, while the first success “Hollywood” climbs another five places into the top ten at number eight. That’s just one place above the only other artist with two tracks in the top fifteen this time - Owl City. “Fireflies” sticks at number nine, while the follow-up “Vanilla Twilight” is this month’s Rapid Riser, racing up eighteen places to number 14 - which, despite the major world-wide success of its predecessor, is higher than it has managed to reach in any sales charts......

Other high climbers this time from Paloma Faith and Laurent Wolf are still in the bottom half of the top forty, along with the other four new hits. Three of those are chart debuts - although they may have quite a long history of multi-million selling albums and several hit singles, both Michael Buble and Alicia Keys are only now impressing me. “Haven’t Met You Yet” comes in at number 29, while “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart” enters at number 37. It remains to be seen whether Stromae - 25-year-old Brussels-born Paul van Haver - has as long and successful a music career ahead of him, but he has certainly made a marvellous start, with the most successful French-language single across continental Europe for quite some time. “Alors On Danse” now enters my chart at number 25. Although “The Rain”, dropping in at number 40, is the first hit credited to Peter Luts, he is also part of Lasgo - who fall to number 34 with their seventh hit, “Lost”. Meanwhile, Little Boots has two hits side by side - as her former number one “Remedy” drops ten places to number 35, and her cover version of Freddie Mercury’s “Love Kills” is the fastest faller, down fourteen places to number 36. And May’s number 36 clings on to a chart position for an amazing fourteenth month - falling three at 39, former Chartbuster Jem is still the longest laster.

Agnes has another opportunity of a third hit, as “I Need You Now” returns to the breakers - and twelve new potential future hits arrive this month. Most of them are by acts appearing there for the first time - Selena Gomez and The Scene, The Swiss, Eric Chase, Lady Antebellum, Wiley featuring Emili Sande, and Train, with a song whose lyrics, on close inspection, don’t include “the smell of urine”. Jessy previously reached number 24 with Micky Modelle and “Dancing In The Dark” - now she has recorded a version of “Missing”, which went to number 14 in my chart for Everything But The Girl. Prezioso and Marvin’s latest offering, which could become their fifth hit, is a new version of a song that originally peaked at number eight for Nik Kershaw, and more recently went to number 16 for Gigi D’Agostino - “The Riddle”. Meanwhile, as “Tik Tok” continues to move slowly towards the chart for Ke$ha, she adds a second breaker with “Your Love Is My Drug” - and Amy MacDonald goes one better, with “Spark” joining “Poison Prince” and “Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over” as her quest for a fourth hit goes on. Lady GaGa looks fairly certain to chalk up a sixth one as “Alejandro” makes the second most impressive new arrival of the month - but guaranteed her fourteenth hit in July is a 42-year-old singer, songwriter, actress, producer, designer and author born in Melbourne, Australia. Her first success was "I Should Be So Lucky” in 1988, her most recent one was “In My Arms” in 2008, and her next is just about to happen. My Record of the Month for June 2010 is “All The Lovers” by Kylie Minogue.

I wrote:...guaranteed her fourteenth hit in July is a 42-year-old singer...born in Melbourne, Australia. Her first success was "I Should Be So Lucky” in 1988...
And 1988 becomes the randomly-chosen year for this month's trip down memory lane. Today, I went on a six-hour journey back in time to listen again to my top hundred of twenty-two years ago - well, apart from those that are now too obscure to appear anywhere on YouTube! At the start, I was beginning to wonder if all of the available tracks would actually fit into six hours - as the bottom three (all in regular, non-extended versions), took fifteen minutes! But, later on, there were nine missing tracks, for which I haven't been able to provide links below - so it turned out that I was able to include extended versions by the London Boys and the aforementioned Kylie Minogue.



As with the other yearly charts I have posted, this is meant to encompass tracks originally recorded/released in the year - even if they were not official singles until 1989 or later. So if anyone spots anything that should have gone into an earlier year, do let me know! While preparing the list, I discovered two tracks I had always placed in 1988, but which should really have been in 1987 - so they have been moved, and will appear whenever that comes up as the mid-month selected year. (Those weren't, incidentally, Kylie's 1988 UK hits "I Should Be So Lucky" and "Locomotion" - which I have always included in 1987, when they were originally released in Australia)



So what of 1988? I was working hard, but had at least (only just!) completed my studies, thankfully discovering quite early in the year that I would never ever have to sit another exam.....and I was listening regularly to the radio broadcasts of the Europarade, and the chart shows of three or four of its component countries - UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and (whenever possible) Germany. So most of the tracks here appeared in at least one of those charts - while, as always, several came from the Eurovision Song Contest or other television programmes. I seem to have been a bit closer to the tastes of the British public in the late 1980's than at other times - nine of the nineteen UK number ones of 1988 made it into my monthly chart too.



Here, then, is the complete countdown of my favourites from 1988:

Another fantastic stroll down memory lane!

Tanita Tikaram's "Twist In My Sobriety" is one of my favourite tracks from the 80s, and a worthy Number 1. I also liked "Good Tradition", but it doesn't come close to Sobriety.


I'm not very familiar with Mecano's songs, though I have gotten to know them in the last few years through some Spanish colleagues. That said, I can't be sure though if I've heard Hijo De La Luna or Une Femme Avec Une Femme before - both nice tracks.

Barbarella is a new one to me - not a bad song either!

I found the music video for The Way To Your Heart - I've not heard that song in so, so long! It got to Number 16 in Ireland in 1989 but seems to have bombed totally in the UK!

I'm fairly sure I never heard Koreana's "Hand In Hand" - it was all "One Moment In Time" in Ireland as I recall!

Hazell Dean - OMG! Not heard that in years! Brought a big smile to my face.

I really liked The London Boys at the time, though none of their singles ever made my year-end charts. I found the video for Requiem and can't help but be reminded now on looking back (by the hats and braces ensemble, and the dance moves) of Mel & Kim in their Respectable video

I know Kylie's "Turn It Into Love" very well, but as it wasn't a single in these parts of the world (or was it?) it wouldn't have charted with me. I think I prefer Hazell Dean's version.

I had to laugh to see Daniel & Margo, and Susan McCann in there!!!

I didn't know Sandra at the time, but I've since got up to speed on her back catalogue, and I think "Heaven Can Wait" is a great track.

I love Enya's Oíche Chiúin - which was, I think, the B-side of Evening Falls, my #12 for the year.

I was surprised to see Diana Ross' "If We Hold On Together" in 1988 - I had no idea that it had first surfaced in a movie 4 years before it became a UK hit!

Bamboleo - not heard it in years! That used to get a lot of airplay in Ireland!


Incidentally, Hothouse Flowers' "Don't Go" should be attributed to 1987. It spent a single week at #2 in Ireland in October of that year, and re-entered twice in 1988, in January, and again in May (thanks to its use as the interval act during the Eurovision Song Contest) when it reached the Top 10 for a second time, doing better than the first time by spending 2 weeks at #2.


There's much less overlap between your Top 100 and mine (and I've included some of the original videos where you hadn't) than the last time I ran a comparison - those songs are listed here with my ranking shown:

09 Tanita Tikaram - Twist In My Sobriety
10 A-ha - You Are The One
13 Yazz & The Plastic Population - The Only Way Is Up (FANTASTIC track! Why has no-one covered this?)
20 Enya - Orinoco Flow
24 Robin Beck - First Time
26 Fairground Attraction - Perfect (I'd never heard the Irish version before!)
27 Everything But The Girl - I Don't Want To Talk About It
32 Eighth Wonder - I'm Not Scared
38 Erasure - Stop! (Crackers International EP)
39 Kylie Minogue - Je Ne Sais Pas Pourquoi
40 Sinitta - I Don't Believe In Miracles (her best track, I think)
44 Whitney Houston - One Moment In Time
49 Edelweiss - Bring Me Edelweiss
60 Kim Wilde - You Came
69 Kon Kan - I Beg Your Pardon (I remember seeing this video on TOTP)
75 Gene Pitney and Marc Almond - Something's Gotten Hold Of My Heart
76 Kylie Minogue - Got To Be Certain
79 The Bangles - Eternal Flame
89 The Hothouse Flowers - Don't Go (my #37 of 1987)
99 Maxi Priest - Wild World

And from other years

1989: 76 Sam Brown - Stop
1990: 38 Roxette - Dangerous (Double A Side - with Listen To Your Heart)

My number 1 of 1988 was Inner City's "Good Life".

Many thanks for all the comments! :D

Top three Holland, top ten Belgium, but no success anywhere else.....I'm not sure it was even released in any other countries. However, the video became frequently featured on the Lifestyle Satellite Jukebox in the early 1990's.

Although it spent five weeks in Ireland's Top 30, incredibly it fell just short of becoming an official hit in the UK for ten weeks ( 89-84-86-87-88-81-82-85-92-99 ). I recall that at least half a verse was chopped out of the UK release - probably in Ireland too.

irishguy28 wrote:I'm fairly sure I never heard Koreana's "Hand In Hand" - it was all "One Moment In Time" in Ireland as I recall!
I'm not sure if that ever got a UK / Ireland release - maybe not, although it would probably have been seen/heard performed in television coverage of the Seoul Olympics. Its sales success seems to have been limited to the German-speaking countries and Scandinavia.

No - I think this was a Japan-only single - and apparently sold extremely well there! I remember that the 7" single of this one was very expensive.

irishguy28 wrote:I had to laugh to see Daniel & Margo, and Susan McCann in there!!!
I was a little surprised that, for such a (later) well-known artist as Daniel O'Donnell, this track isn't on YouTube. However, it was a difficult one to track down on CD - eventually I got it on one of Margo's albums instead. You probably know - although many maybe don't! - that she is his sister.

Aaaargh!!! You're quite right.....how could that have ended up in the wrong year?! I must have bought the UK-release single after the Eurovision Song Contest, and it must have been dated 1988. Although I would have remembered its earlier appearance in the Irish chart, I must have assumed - carelessly, without checking! - that the first run had been earlier in 1988. But it was a few months earlier - October/November 1987.

I will move this into 1987 in due course, whenever I cover that year in full - but, for the moment, I'll leave the posting as it is. This is partly to retain the link to what I thought was an excellent extended version of it (maybe similar to its length as that Eurovision interval act? I'll have to track down my recording of that contest, and check!) - but also because 1988 may later need a further amendment, for another reason:

And I hadn't either, until the last few months - in which it has been a regular filler in the commercial-free breaks on the Top 40 Oifigiúil na hÉireann programme on Raidió Rí Rá. But now that I have managed to get a CD containing it (and, incidentally, some of their other regular fillers!) it's going to return to the breakers this month, and could quite possibly get back into my monthly top forty - in which event it will rise in the annual list due to the additional points scored!

irishguy28 wrote:13 Yazz & The Plastic Population - The Only Way Is Up (FANTASTIC track! Why has no-one covered this?)
I did buy a 1999 (?) Almighty Records cover version of this, credited to the Kinky Boyz, cheaply at a record fair - but it wasn't particularly good.

And, despite her being a UK act, this was another one that charted in continental Europe long before making it in the UK and Ireland!

LOL at Edelweiss in the top 10, though. Never really cared for Mecano's huge French #1 (two years later though) or for the two ESC entries.

Good to know I won't be the only one voting most of these in the Retro Charts, assuming Dustin carries on for 8 more years!

Oh and the French title of the Eighth Scared song seems wrong, should it not be Je n'ai pas du peur?

There were many scurrilous rumours when Daniel first emerged into the spotlight that, despite the official line, Margo may not have been his sister. But that's all they were - nasty, evil rumours.

I may be wrong, but I think that "extended" version was played as the interval act - presumably with cuts to them performing on stage as well, I don't remember - but I do remember that, at the time, it was far-and-away the most lavish music video ever produced out of Ireland, being filmed in something like 10 or 12 European countries.

Nice one! I did think it was probably from one of the Ceol series albums.

Well - I'm not at all surprised that Almighty/Klone released a cover - but the fact that they apparently waited 11 years makes me suspect it was not even their first stab at a cover of that track! Those Almighty/Klone covers are nearly always really, really bad, so I wouldn't even count that. Though, with dance music's past having been plundered and cannibalised down through the years, it's surprising that no producer or remixer appears to have alighted on this track.

potojr wrote:Oh and the French title of the Eighth Scared song seems wrong, should it not be Je n'ai pas du peur?
Indeed, in textbook French that would be correct, but the "ne" frequently gets dropped in the spoken language or informal contexts. Also, the three syllable "J'ai pas peur" fits in to the song far better. :wink:

Thanks for that! I've saved a copy. :D

I've been thinking that, in recent months, my upcoming Records of the Month have been relatively easier to guess. While

Chartbuster (April): ??????? "?????"

may have been slightly more challenging,

Chartbuster (June): ????? ??????? "??? ??? ??????"

was probably more obvious. And as for.....

Chartbuster (May): ?????? ?????-?????? "???????????"

.....I don't suppose many who saw that wouldn't have worked out what was coming!



However, I have just done a search of the whole of UKmix, and discovered that the new Record of the Month I'll be revealing at the beginning of July seems to be one that almost
no-one else might have heard of. Indeed, the act's name has only ever been posted once in any of these forums - and that was by me, in my latest Europarade thread!

So, on the way is something new, different and unexpected.....of course, whether anybody else will like it remains to be seen!!!

I'd never even realised that your Chartbuster sigs were a game...due to their colour I assumed they were links to said Chartbuster, and that you were merely being overenthusiastic with the use of the question mark (to draw curious viewers in). :oops:

Well, looks like July's chartbuster is some illicit cover of "Waka Waka" then!!!

The signature is always a link to the most recent chart in this thread, wherein there is a YouTube link to the relevant Chartbuster.....and to (hopefully) everything else in the chart!
But the question-marks are usually up only for less than a day - from the point at which I decide what the new Chartbuster will be, until when I post the full new chart, and that's now usually within minutes of the new month beginning. I then fill in all the missing letters when updating the link.

However, this month I realised I was going to be busy with work pretty much all day today - so I prepared the new charts, and substantially drafted the new posting, in readiness for tonight, yesterday instead. That included my usual five hours of playing all the tracks from YouTube, copying and pasting/updating the links as necessary. ( And, incidentally, I think this must be the first time I have ever got through 72 tracks in the first four hours - with only the second vintage number one, the third and final play of the Chartbuster and the top twelve left for the final hour! There was ample time for a third vintage number one to be added in..... )




irishguy28 wrote:Well, looks like July's chartbuster is some illicit cover of "Waka Waka" then!!!
It didn't even occur to me that "Waka Waka" would fit the clue!!! :oops: :lol: No, it's nothing at all like that. All will become clear - in about eight and a half hours' time, hopefully.

This month, there are only two non-movers in my top forty - and they’re right at the top, as “Bittersweet”, June’s highest new entry by Sophie Ellis-Bextor, narrowly fails to displace Bananarama’s “Love Don’t Live Here” from the number one spot. Among twelve climbers this time, Lady GaGa is back into the top three, along with a little help from Beyonce on “Telephone” - and also has the highest of five new entries, as her sixth hit, “Alejandro (Don’t Call My Name)”, crashes in at number four. Almost equally as strong a contender for next month’s number one, however, is Kylie Minogue - with June’s Chartbuster, “All The Lovers”, arriving at number five. At least one of these two new entries could also climb into the top five in the UK this week, where they have both just been released on CD single and on 7” vinyl. And, with two climbers each by Marina and the Diamonds and Owl City and a three-place faller by Ellie Goulding completing my top ten, it’s the first time since June 1994 that it has consisted entirely of tracks available on 7” single! It should probably be noted, however, that Ellie’s has added protuberances to make it star-shaped, and reflective of the title of the highest of twenty-one hits moving down this month. With an artist name entirely unreflective of reality, The Swiss are actually from Adelaide, Australia. They make an impressive ninety-eight place climb to enter my chart at number 14 with the instrumental “Bubble Bath” - while the Melbourne-based Temper Trap complete a trio of new entries from down under this month, as “Sweet Disposition” finally makes it at number 38, two places below a fifth hit for Italodance act Prezioso and Marvin. Their previous successes have all peaked between 23 and 27 - but perhaps they can improve on this with their version of “The Riddle”, which has already reached number eight for Nik Kershaw and number 16 for Gigi D’Agostino. Meanwhile, the Rapid Riser this month is “The Rain”, as Peter Luts races up fourteen places to number 26 - while two former Chartbusters share the more dubious honour of fastest faller. Agnes dives from number five to number 16 with “On And On”, and AnnaGrace plummets from 28 to 39 with “Love Keeps Calling”. And it’s another former Chartbuster that is the longest laster yet again - Jem clings on for a fifteenth, and surely last, appearance, as “It’s Amazing” slides one place to number 40.

Sylver return to the breakers with a release that is doing better in Belgium than some of their other recent work - a remake of their first success of ten years ago, “Turn The Tide” - while Eddi Reader and Fairground Attraction originally reached number 21 in my chart with their UK number one from 1988, “Perfect“. Its return to the breakers is largely due to a more recently-recorded Gaelic version, “Foirfe” - one of several tracks that have been regular fillers in commercial-free breaks during the Raidio RiRa broadcasts of “Ireland’s Official Top Forty” in the last few months. Another of these, which took much longer to identify, and which I still haven’t learned to correctly spell unaided, is “Tochailt Uaighe go Róluath” - which gives Duke Special their first breaker, one of thirteen new potential future hits this month. Two of the others are also older, as Chairlift are in with a chance of following up their recent number one “Bruises” with “Evident Utensil”. From the same 2008 album “Does You Inspire You”, this had originally been a single in 2007 - while “Aurora” by Nova was originally released way back in.....1981! I only discovered this instrumental for the first time this month, after hearing an extract from it in the Dutch top ten countdown of one of the weeks featured in Erik de Zwart’s “Pick of The Pops”-type programme on Radio Veronica, “Top 40 Hit Dossier”. Three acts with three former top forty hits may be about to add a fourth - Bob Sinclar is back with “I Wanna”, while Sabrina Salerno and Samantha Fox now join forces with their version of “Call Me”. With just one hit each so far, Dash Berlin, Caro Emerald, Edward Maya and Vika Jigulina and the Scissor Sisters could double their scores in the months ahead - while Inna remains in the breakers with “Hot”, and now adds another possible hit with “Love”. Three other new breakers are by acts impressing me for the first time - Alexandra Burke featuring Flo Rida went to number one in the UK in 2009 with “Bad Boys”, while Yolanda Be Cool featuring D-Cup could be on the way there this summer with “We No Speak Americano”. But the Chartbuster, guaranteed to enter my top forty in August, is a track from a recent EP, “Same Stars We Shared”, by the Belgian quartet consisting of Inne Eysermans, Sebastiaan Van den Branden, Hilke Ros and Christophe Claeys. They have reached the top ten in their homeland, and might hopefully enjoy success in other territories too, with my Record of the Month for July 2010 - “Come Home”, by Amatorski.
