~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



In my final chart of 2010, there are twenty-three tracks moving down, eight going up, two non-movers and seven new entries - and Caro Emerald has one of each! Her former number one “A Night Like This” is the fastest faller and longest laster, diving eighteen places to 34 in its ninth month - and that’s now one place above “Back It Up”, which climbs five notches from its number 40 entry position in November. “That Man” spends a second month at number ten, while her current Dutch hit “Stuck” makes an impressive new entry at number five. In most months, that would be the top newcomer - but this time it’s only the fifth highest new entry! This has never happened before, but the top five are all brand new entries - and the top four come from acts making their chart debut. DKS arrive one place higher than the Broads reached twenty-seven years ago with “Sing-Sing-Sing”, retitling it “Sing With A Swing”. This piece was originally written back in the 1930s by Louis Prima (born 1910, died 1978). For the new entry at number three, French band Yelle join forces with Italian production duo the Crookers on “Cooler Cooleur”, from their recent album “Tons Of Friends”. One of those friends would seem to be Kid Cudi, with whom they had a major international hit two years ago with “Day ‘n Nite”. Boston-born record producer Armand van Helden was involved with a few UK number one hits in the previous decade - the earliest being “Professional Widow” by Tori Amos from January 1997 - and recently came close to having another one, with Duck Sauce. “Barbra Streisand”, using much of Boney M’s “Gotta Go Home”, now crashes into my top forty at number two. But straight in at number one - and making an even bigger climb than Paris Hilton’s “Stars Are Blind” in the extended chart, as it was November’s number 111 - is “Hello” by Martin Solveig and Dragonette. The thirty-four-year-old French DJ and producer is already in the top ten in his homeland - on both the downloads and the physical sales charts! - together with a three-piece Canadian, but now London-based, group. It’s the second time that a song with this title has entered my top forty at number one - but theirs is not otherwise related to that of the once-seen, never-forgotten Twinkle.

The two other new arrivals this month are second hits for Miley Cyrus and Chairlift. The eighteen-year-old “Hannah Montana” actress follows up her number five “See You Again” with a number 12 entry for November’s Chartbuster “Who Owns My Heart”, while the Brooklyn-based electronic pop group are a long way from matching their number one “Bruises”, as “Evident Utensil” is in at number 40. Meanwhile, the Rapid Riser is Katie Melua, racing up eleven places to number 20 with her album track “A Moment Of Madness”. Album tracks and old singles alike have recently been appearing all over the UK Top 200 for the Beatles, as their back catalogue has suddenly become available for download - and their one and only hit from my chart, “Hey Jude”, which got to number 20 in 1997, now returns to the top forty breakers. Also there are eight brand new potential hits. Lady GaGa could soon have a seventh success with “Dance In The Dark”, Caro Emerald a fifth with “Riviera Life”, and Jacqueline (Govaert) a second with “Big World”. Dance tracks from Afrojack featuring Eva Simons, Alex Gaudino, Markus Schulz and Mike Candys featuring Jack Holiday could also be on their way to my top forty in the months ahead - the last being a new version of the former hit by Rondo Veneziano. However, the guaranteed new entry in January 2011 is from the same genre - and, although it’s credited to a new name to my chart, it’s not exactly a new artist. Forty-year-old Dutch producer and DJ Ron Van Den Beuken previously reached number 26 with “Far Away” and number five with “Life’s Too Short”, accompanied by Nicole Tyler and Maarten de Jong respectively - and another of his projects has made regular appearances in the singles sales top 100 in his homeland during the last eight years. Several of those releases have featured in the Tipparade, and a few have even reached the top forty - in which the latest is currently one of his biggest successes. My Record of the Month for December 2010 is Clokx, with “Catch Your Fall”.

I listened to the top 40. It was fun, though I had to search many videos on the web because the industry does not want Germans to watch their videos on Youtube.

I wrote:DKS arrive one place higher than the Broads...with...“Sing With A Swing”. This piece was originally written...by Louis Prima (born 1910, died 1978).
So, for the first trip back in time this month, it's a hundred-year voyage back to 1910..... :o





Er, no! The year is 1978 - and even that pre-dates all of my 376 monthly charts so far. And also, I strongly suspect, the births of many UKmix users! However, it was (as I have previously mentioned) the year in which, at the age of thirteen/fourteen, I first took an interest in pop music and charts. Specifically, this was the UK Top 20 - and, by the end of the year, the Top 40 - as counted down on Radio One by Simon Bates on Sunday evenings.

Much more recent research has revealed that several of those hits were actually 1977 recordings - which will appear in due course, when that year is featured. However, those from the UK charts of later in 1978, and into 1979, fully deserve inclusion in this countdown of my 1978 favourites. Also here are some tracks recorded in 1978 that charted in other countries, which I discovered later - in some instances, much later! - plus, as always, a few that I found in other places, such as the Eurovision Song Contest. But not many fall into these latter categories - so perhaps (hopefully!) the majority will be relatively well-known.

In total, sixty 1978 tracks made it into my monthly charts, mostly in 1979 and the early 1980's - and largely when I actually obtained them on seven-inch singles (or, more rarely, albums). That's why only one track from this year reached number one in my charts - and that wasn't until 1983, when I finally found an LP containing it! But sixteen others made it into my monthly top ten, despite facing competition from what, at the time, were more recent releases from years already covered in these mid-month features.

Completing the top hundred of 1978 are forty tracks which have reached my top 40 breakers - or, it has to be assumed, "would" have done. Only six of the top hundred are nowhere to be found on YouTube - so, from the links below (and bearing in mind that records were generally shorter then than they are now!) the other ninety-four fitted perfectly into five hours this evening, in which I listened again to my favourites of thirty-two years ago. And here they are.....

I wrote:Armand van Helden was involved with a few UK number one hits in the previous decade - the earliest being “Professional Widow” by Tori Amos from January 1997...
and I wrote:the Beatles...their one and only hit from my chart, “Hey Jude”... got to number 20 in 1997
A double clue to the second yearly retro chart to be featured this month - as today I have spent six hours listening again to my top hundred of thirteen years ago. Seventy-two singles from 1997 entered my monthly top forty - an annual total only beaten once since then - and half of them reached the top ten, with eight going all the way to number one. Completing this top hundred are twenty-eight of the fifty other tracks from that year that ground to a halt in the top forty breakers, some of which came quite close to the chart.

Like other years near to it, this one is very much dominated by Eurodance / Europop music, especially from the German charts - with only a fairly limited number of exceptions. And even some of the tracks that might not fit so obviously into these categories succeeded in my chart largely due to dance remixes, reflected in some of the YouTube links below!

Unlike other years, however, there is a surprisingly low number of artists in the top hundred. While fifty take one place each, the other fifty positions are shared by twenty acts making more than one appearance. Among these, Mr President are in four times - but Aqua's first album was released in 1997, and no less than eight tracks from it are here. Most of those are easy to spot from the "highest position" column.....they're the ones peaking at number seven!

Also unlike other years, all of the top hundred are available on YouTube.....well, give or take two medleys. The one at number six by Nicole is actually about eleven minutes long, probably too lengthy to appear there in full - but the shorter, later version I have substituted is substantially similar to part of it. And I'm almost sure that there should really be more than one former hit by Freiheit on their hit mix at number 39!!!

Here, then, is the complete countdown of my favourites from 1997.

This brings back some memories! Many Eurodance songs, most of which I don't like anymore from today's point of view, but there are some exceptions. Also great songs by the Mavericks, Bell Book & Candle, Janet Jackson & Chumbawamba.

There was more action than ever before at the top end of December’s chart, with all of the top five being new entries - including Martin Solveig and Dragonette, at number one with "Hello", which has now also become the first number one of 2011 in both Belgium and the Netherlands - but now, in the first chart of the new year, there is more inaction than ever, as the top twelve all remain exactly as they were! Only one previous chart can come close to matching such a lack of movement in the upper range - and that was back in June 2001, when the top nine hits were unchanged from the previous month. Then, a track that was a breaker again quite recently, “Turn The Tide” by Sylver, was the highest new entry, just below all those non-movers, at number ten - and again this time, the highest of just four new entries is right under those motionless twelve. It’s “Big World” - the second hit for Jacqueline Govaert, the Dutch 28-year-old former lead singer of Krezip - and although this has been less successful in her homeland than “Overrated”, it has already overtaken that former Chartbuster in my top forty. Indeed, “Overrated” is one of nineteen tracks moving down this month - and, falling two places to 23, it looks like becoming the first Chartbuster to miss my top twenty for nearly seven years. Last month’s Chartbuster has already avoided this - Clokx debut at number 20 with “Catch Your Fall” - although the other two new entries this time are rather lower down. Polarkreis 18 previously peaked at number 10 with “Allein Allein”, and now follow that up with “Unendliche Sinfonie”, in at 37 - while Caro Emerald adds yet another hit to her collection. “Riviera Life”, new at 40, joins longest laster “A Night Like This”, down four at 38 in its tenth month, Rapid Riser “Back It Up”, racing up twenty places to number 15, and two of those non-movers - “That Man” at ten and “Stuck” at five. She becomes the first act to have five tracks in my top forty at the same time since Rednex in February 1996 - when “Wish You Were Here” and “Wild ‘N Free” made their last appearances, and “Rolling Home”, “Bottleneck Bob” and “The Ultimate Rednex Megamix” were all new entries.

Meanwhile, only four other hits move up this month - Katie Melua with “A Moment Of Madness”, Amy MacDonald with “This Pretty Face”, Stromae’s “Te Quiero” and Chairlift’s “Evident Utensil” - while the fastest faller is Kylie Minogue, as “All The Lovers” dives ten places to number 33. However, three former hits could be beginning a journey back into my chart in new versions. Milk and Sugar previously revived John Paul Young’s “Love Is In The Air” - and could do likewise with the former number one by Vaya Con Dios, “Nah Neh Nah”; a new version of the Pet Shop Boys’ first hit, “West End Girls” was a bonus track on their most recent, and least successful, single “Together”; while the original vocalist on Iio’s “Rapture”, Nadia Ali, has reworked that former top twenty hit. And there are five brand new potential future hits this time. Hurts continue to slide slowly towards the top forty with “Wonderful Life”, and could now also be on the way there with “Stay” - a different song from the two former hits also bearing this title, from Bonnie Bianco and Pierre Cosso and Sash featuring LaTrec. Mason is looking to follow up the number 27 hit “Perfect (Exceeder)” with “Runaway”, while David Guetta joins forces with Rihanna on “Who’s That Chick”. If that charts, it would be his fifth hit, and her second. The top two new breakers this month are the only ones involving artists who have not previously appeared - the second highest being “Kentish Town Waltz”, a recent Irish success for Dublin-born Imelda May. But the first Chartbuster of the new year, guaranteed to be a new entry in my February 2011 chart, is a collaboration between two artists who have previously reached number one in the UK - and other countries - separately. Could they now also do that together? Next month’s top forty will see the first hit in my chart for a 27-year-old London-born singer, songwriter and producer, and the fifteenth for a 42-year-old, multi-talented Australian performer. My Record of the Month for January 2011 is Taio Cruz and Kylie Minogue, with “Higher”.

The potential future hits, from which the new entries for next month will be chosen - with the Chartbuster, the number one on the breakers, definitely being among them.

( Based very much on the "Tipparade" and "Alarmschijf" - fulfilling similar roles for the weekly Dutch singles charts for over forty years now! )

Hopefully nobody thought the new thread title was a misprint, and that I was about to add to the vast collection of countdowns of the best of 2010?! No, that was the clue to the first retro year to be covered in the gaps between my new monthly charts in 2011. The clock is now turned back to 2001, as I have been listening again - through the YouTube links below - to my top hundred favourite songs from one decade ago. And, although some might be described at least as slightly obscure (or, I suppose, completely unknown, if readers haven't ever heard of them until now!) they are all to be found there - and fitted comfortably, if a little snugly, into exactly six hours today.

It may seem unthinkable now - but, back then, the weekly UK chart show on Radio One was still very well presented - although unfortunately I never seemed to hear very many tracks that I actually liked in it! Instead, the vast majority of what I'll be voting for in one of the weekly games on the Retro forum over the next twelve months - its playlist permitting! - come from the charts of continental Europe, and especially Germany. As with other nearby years, the emphasis is very much on Eurodance - although there are several tracks, even towards the top, that couldn't in any sense be described that way.



So.....



How many 2001 tracks reached the breakers? .....Eighty-nine - so eleven of the best other CD singles I bought from that year have made up the quota. :D

How many tracks made it into my monthly top forty? .....Fifty-seven - and one of the monthly Chartbusters turned out to be the least successful of them all! :oops:

How many reached the top ten? .....Twenty-eight - including the one I thought deserved to win the year's Eurovision Song Contest. It's someone who is apparently now a music/singing teacher - but I don't think many of her pupils would be able to reach that last top note! :o

How many went all the way to number one? .....Only three - and, inexplicably, one of them doesn't seem to have been any more than an extremely minor hit anywhere! :cry:

And who has my number one of the year? .....Well, it's the same act who had the number one in the previous retro year chart featured here, only a few weeks ago, and not much further up the page! 8-)



Here now are all the answers, in my first complete retro countdown of 2011.....

I don't think I'd heard Dario G's "Say What's On Your Mind" before. I liked their first album (though wasn't too keen on the big hit Sunchyme) but never really liked the stuff that came in this decade. It's an OK song, though.

I liked Ian Van Dahl! "Will I" was released as a double A-side in Australia in 2002, where I picked it up, so although I was familiar with "Will I" from Europe the previous year, I've always come to associate the two together. There's a cracking Lange remix of "Reason" on the single.

I'll always associate "Whenever, Wherever" with my arrival in Australia - it was one of the big hits over there shortly after I arrived. But of Shakira's hits from that album, I've always somewhat preferred "Underneath Your Clothes".

Fragma's "You Are Alive" is, in my opinion, their last really good single. I've always thought it would have been even better with a stronger vocalist. But it's a great track, with a great buildup from a somewhat serious verse to a joyous chorus.

Although I didn't know Kate Ryan back in 2001, "Scream For More/Mon Coeur Resiste Encore" would later become a favourite. I think I'm correct in saying it was the only single of hers to be released (properly) in the UK?

"Rapture" was another big favourite of mine - and again, a single I picked up in Australia, the only place that I know of where the sublime Creamer & Stephane K remix was released on CD.

ATB's "Let U Go" is a fantastic track. It's such a shame that he only had such a brief period of success in the UK - and not even with his best tracks.

Kylie's "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" is nothing short of a pop-culture milestone in my book...I can even remember the first time I saw (just a glimpse) of the video, from the street, on a big screen in a bar that I happened to be passing.

I never even knew Ratty released anything other than "Sunrise (Here I Am)" - on first listen, it's not a bad track! Is it somehow related to the Pakito track of the same name?

I liked DJ Sakin's 1998 releases - I've never heard "Miami" before, though. It seems to be missing some of the magic of the UK hits.

I was such a Naimee Coleman fan back in the day - I was lucky enough to meet her a few times, and get everything I had of hers signed, and to get on the guest list for a few of her shows around this time. You've managed to get the link for My Star mixed up with Enya's "May It Be", by the way.

That Enya track is one of my favourites, and I'm not ashamed to say I'm a huge Enya fan!

I'm absolutely astounded to see Lucrezia on your list! I can't for the life of me remember where or how I discovered the track, but it may have been on holidays (where was it a hit? Spain, perhaps? Or her native Italy?). It's the best Madonna cover I've ever heard. I managed to order the single from the US, and when I was in Spain I found another single of hers - Lookin' 4 Love - the video for which I'm watching now for the very first time.
By the way, the actual video for Live To Tell is on YouTube.


I've always enjoyed Brooklyn Bounce - did they ever record an original track, I wonder? I know them best for their cover of The Music's Got Me.

Schiller is, as you probably know, a huge favourite of mine, but I lost sight of him after his brief UK visibility with "Ruhe" and didn't discover the rest of his work until a few years ago.

I knew Melanie Thornton had a big hit with "Wonderful Dream" in Germany - I believe it was used in Coca Cola's Christmas ads in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Shame that she died so tragically!


Another great stroll down memory lane there - thanks!!!

Indeed - I skipped over this when looking through the list tonight, though it did cross my mind that it may be a Sarah McLachlan cover. And sure enough, when Kuba comments on it, it must be!

I've never heard this version before, and it's amazing! Nothing will ever top the original, which is one of my all-time favourite Sarah McLachlan tracks, but this cover is fantastic! Great video, too!

There's a tragic story behind the song, by the way, in case you didn't know. Sarah was sued by an obsessed fan, who claimed that the song was based on "love letters" that he had sent her. The case was never heard, though, as the guy committed suicide after several frustrated attempts to get in touch with her. Sarah has spoken about the affair, and said that writing the song was "therapeutic" in light of the attention and letters she had been receiving from crazed fans.

How did I miss it? It was released on Multiply in the UK, and indeed made #54 there. And it was co-produced by Mark Jolley (of Innocence) and Jimmy Gomez (who remixed several of Sunscreem's later singles).

A great discovery!
