As a search for its title throughout UKmix leads to this one thread only, I have the impression that not many other forum members may have heard (of) my new number one.....

There is only one non-mover in my top forty this month - former Chartbuster “Chasing Dreams” makes a fifth appearance at number eleven for Sebastian Cruz and Miryel, the highest of just five tracks in the chart not available on vinyl. So there is another brand new number one, coming from the third Belgian act to rise to the top this year! The title track from the latest album by electropunk band Goose (Mickael Karkousse, Dave Martijn, Tom Coghe, and Bert Libee), “Synrise”, becomes my 185th chart-topper, climbing eight places from its number nine debut in June. Only five other singles are moving up this time - including last month’s Rapid Riser by Katie Melua, and the former Chartbuster from Kate Ryan. “The Flood” advances another nine places to number fourteen - while “LoveLife” is just below that, up three at fifteen.

After sticking at its number five entry position last time, Alexandra Stan’s “Mr Saxobeat” now slides up to number four, but there are three stronger potential future number ones elsewhere in the top ten. Agnes Obel races up ten places to number three with “Riverside” - not many Danish acts have ever gone higher - but the Rapid Riser is Lady GaGa, as “Judas” clambers up all of thirty places to number ten. And it is the very same artist who has the highest of this month’s five new entries - with “The Edge Of Glory”, a current hit from her latest album, she crashes straight in at number five. Although “Dance In The Dark” and “Born This Way” continue to only make sluggish progress towards the top forty, and “LoveGame” peaked at a dismal 119, this brings her total of hits to eight - all reaching the top ten. The first still remains the biggest - “Poker Face” was my number one in April and May 2009.

Martin Solveig was number one much more recently with “Hello” - and now follows it up with “Ready 2 Go”, on which he has teamed up with Kele rather than Dragonette. That’s new at 25, seven places higher than the latest hit for Armin van Buuren - “Drowning”, featuring vocalist Laura V. All five of his previous successes have reached my top five - can this do likewise? Gianna Nannini has never been in my top five, but I began searching for the earliest of her four previous chart entries as long ago as 1985 - that was “Fotoromanza”. Decades later, “Ogni Tanto” returns her to my top forty, at number 40. Not far above that, among twenty-eight hits descending, are the fastest faller and longest laster - “Barbra Streisand” by Duck Sauce at 38, and “We No Speak Americano” from Yolanda Be Cool and D-Cup at 37 - but there is better news for last month‘s Chartbuster. Anna Rossinelli‘s “In Love For A While” is new at 19, becoming the eightieth Eurovision Song Contest entry to reach my chart - but only the fifth from Switzerland.

Meanwhile, in a poor month for new releases, there are just six new potential future hits. Alex Gaudino is looking for a first top forty entry with his second breaker, “What A Feeling” - with vocals by Kelly Rowland, who previously peaked at number four in my chart with David Guetta on “When Love Takes Over”. Both Coldplay and Owl City could be on the way to their third hits, with “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” and “Alligator Sky” respectively - while Shakira has already reached my top forty seven times, with four of her hits peaking at number two. “Rabiosa” might be her next success - but the two strongest new breakers this month are both by American acts impressing me for the first time. Fourteen-year-old Rebecca Black has already charted in at least six countries with “Friday”, despite receiving widespread criticism - but it’s a twenty-four-year-old singer-songwriter from Philadelphia who has the new Chartbuster, guaranteed to enter my top forty in August. Although originally released in America almost exactly a year ago, her single has only more recently spread to Europe and other parts of the world. My Record of the Month for July 2011 is Christina Perri, with “Jar Of Hearts”.

Not at all, really - I had heard that the original had been withdrawn, but there were at least a few further uploads of the track available on YouTube!

I had to wait, however, for an official physical release - which I received a couple of weeks ago. Its inventive, and no doubt somewhat meaningful, catalogue number is MARMITE 001.....

Strange how you never linked the actual video!
Is that actually official? Sanctioned by Rebecca (as Ark Music technically don't own it)?

In one of the most convoluted, contrived references ever, I wrote:Gianna Nannini has never been in my top five, but I began searching for the earliest of her four previous chart entries as long ago as 1985 - that was “Fotoromanza”.
So, 1985 is the first completely randomly-chosen (!) retro year this month - and it's the one in which I reached the age of 21. In theory, or by tradition, I should have received the "key of the door" - but, in practice, I completed my degree and began full-time work. This probably meant that I had rather more time to listen to music between those events - the end of May to the end of August - although I'm not sure that this is really reflected in the spread of my hits from this year. Partly by attaching a number of radios and cassette recorders to timer-switches, I was tuning in throughout 1985 to the various broadcasts of the Europarade, and to the chart shows of several of the countries included therein - the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Austria and (when possible) Germany. So the vast majority of my choices had at least some success in one or more of these charts - although there also seem to be at least a dozen television theme tunes!

Back then, my monthly chart was a top fifty, and exactly one hundred 1985 tracks entered - subject to, as previously mentioned, some slight blurring of where each mid-eighties year began and ended. One particularly unfortunate effect of this, I now see, is that I charted three tracks from the same Bangles album - but only two of them are here, as the third has already been allocated to 1986 ! There may be other anomalies too - but hopefully not too many. I must admit, I was quite surprised today to discover that some of what I thought were the more obscure tracks actually were available on YouTube - but, regrettably, nine of the top hundred are not there. So, to fill the usual six-hour session, I included, throughout (but especially in the third hour, covering only positions 60 to 48), several extended versions instead of the shorter / more famiiar radio edits. And now - here they all are!

I don't know if you know his version - it never charted, and may not have been released as a single, though it received a lot of airplay at the time, to the extent that it has totally usurped the original in my mind - but Brendan Grace did a parody version.

I loved this at the time!!! Here's what I believe to be the original video.

A track I didn't hear at the time - but discovered some years later in Germany - I love this.

Haven't heard this in years! Haven't heard of Rebecca in aeons, either!!!

I mentioned this only a few days ago on The Apprentice thread! (One of the final five is a certain Mr. Eastwood). I searched for it online too and couldn't find it either! RIP Dermot.

He's in the news here this week - he's going for new hair transplants.

A great song, written by the English husband-and-wife team of Paul and June Colclough after a trip to the Dingle Peninsula. It's been recorded by a plethora of artists down through the years, my favourite being Mary Black's recording from 1983 when she was with De Danann, from their album of the same name - but surprisingly, only The Barleycorn ever released the track as a single.

And then I find this....
a) surprised you don't like it as much as The Barleycorn's version
b) it's in the wrong year - as stated above, it's from the 1983 album "Song For Ireland"

Watching those closing titles brought back a load of memories!!!!

One of my favourites from a-ha! It would be used for several years later, as the theme music for RTE's Saturday afternoon sports programming.

like 2Belgen and Zinno in your list.
Though songs like 'Walk Like An Egyptian' were in facts big commercial hits later in 1986.
But this are all excellent songs,those were the days.

Thanks to everyone for the comments! :D

WHAT'S YOUR NAME? Zinno

I like a lot of them,great to see you have names
like 2Belgen and Zinno in your list.
Both Belgian acts, of course - although I heard them in the Dutch TROS Top 50 back then. "Lena" also entered the Nationale Hitparade - peaking one place higher, at 39 - but it didn't quite reach the Nederlandse Top 40. "What's My Name" was actually released later on in the UK. However, despite its "James Bond" references, it only managed four weeks in the top 100 (99 93 94 95) - so it wasn't officially a hit here.....





irishguy28 wrote: MY HEART IS IN IRELAND Wolfe Tones

I don't know if you know his version - it never charted, and may not have been released as a single, though it received a lot of airplay at the time, to the extent that it has totally usurped the original in my mind - but Brendan Grace did a parody version.
Oh dear..... "My heart is in Holland, my lungs are in New York, my liver's in London, my brain is in Bangkok, I hear that my kidneys are somewhere in Sydney....." Very good! I'd never heard of this version before. I don't think it was a single - and, although I've only just searched briefly, I haven't even found any evidence that it was on any of his albums either. It's certainly not on a three-CD compilation I bought a few years ago, primarily for his "Teddy Bear" parody "Bottler On CB" - but this was pretty much entirely "Bottler"-related songs.





irishguy28 wrote: A SONG FOR IRELAND Barleycorn

A great song, written by the English husband-and-wife team of Paul and June Colclough after a trip to the Dingle Peninsula. It's been recorded by a plethora of artists down through the years, my favourite being Mary Black's recording from 1983 when she was with De Danann, from their album of the same name - but surprisingly, only The Barleycorn ever released the track as a single.

A SONG FOR IRELAND De Danann

And then I find this....
a) surprised you don't like it as much as The Barleycorn's version
b) it's in the wrong year - as stated above, it's from the 1983 album "Song For Ireland"
I think here that you've exposed not only another anomaly in my mid-1980s year allocations (I will have to look into these again at some stage when I have more time, to ensure that the hits are divided by year as appropriately as possible, while not allowing more than 100 in each!) but a flaw in my supporting files. These record that I have this track on a 7" single as well as an LP and CD - but I can find no reference to any further detail, such as a catalogue number, that would confirm this. I have even checked my index-card system (which I haven't updated for several years - there's something else to add to the "to do" list!) and there's no indication on the relevant card there either. I suspect that you are quite right, and this is one of (very few of) my hits from the 1980s that isn't on a 7" single!





irishguy28 wrote: ONLY LOVE Nana Mouskouri ##

I loved this at the time!!! Here's what I believe to be the original video.
The interesting thing about this one was that, for some reason, there were two different releases of it at the same time in the UK - some time after its success in the Netherlands charts, where I heard it first. I think the version on Carrere Records was the same one that had charted elsewhere, while the Phillips one (a slightly different recording, especially at the end) might have been from a UK album, I'm not sure! Combined together, it did well to reach number two in the UK. And number one for a week in Ireland..... One of the nine tracks not on YouTube from this year, KARLEKEN Johnny Wendelnas, is a Swedish version of the same song - which I received by chance as part of a "20 obscure continental singles of our choice for a fiver" deal or something like that, from Oldies Unlimited.....I haven't thought about them for years! I, and no doubt many others, used to be sent monthly catalogues of singles at rock-bottom prices.....





irishguy28 wrote:THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES ON TV Aha

One of my favourites from a-ha! It would be used for several years later, as the theme music for RTE's Saturday afternoon sports programming.
Not the only music from the Norwegian group to find its way into ongoing use elsewhere - for as long as I can remember, Radio 538 have used a segment of "The Living Daylights" as the backing for their revelation of the new Alarmschijf at about 1550 (European time) on Friday afternoons!

Indeed...much, much later, though as a different song, and credited instead to Rihanna feat. Drake!

:wink: :D

Perhaps "Song For Ireland" by Dé Danann was released as a single - though its absence from the Irish Top 30 would make me think that it wasn't released in Ireland. To be honest, I'm a little surprised that the only version that charted was by The Barleycorn, hence my assumption that they were the only ones to hit upon the idea of releasing the track as a single. I'm biased, of course, but I wouldn't consider their version in anyway definitive (Dé Danann, Dick Gaughan, and Luke Kelly all recorded far superior versions).

If you do find evidence of it having been released on single, pleae PM me (I may miss it if it is merely mentioned in this thread). And if you can think why you might have "noticed" the track, and charted it, in the absence of a single, I'd also love to know.

I should correct a mistake I made earlier - the songwriter was Phil(ip), not Paul, Colclough.

Will do - although I fear that it may be months, if not years, before I have the opportunity to open the currently rather inaccessible record boxes in which the single would be, if it exists (and I now strongly suspect that it doesn't!)

That, I can answer straight away! It was a track on a compilation LP that I must have bought in order to obtain some other Irish hit not otherwise on release in the UK - which, knowing of both the song and the group, I listened to, liked and charted! No doubt that was in 1985, hence its allocation to the wrong year.....

I wrote:Lady Gaga.....with “The Edge Of Glory”, a current hit from her latest album.....this
brings her total of hits to eight - all reaching the top ten. The first still remains the
biggest - “Poker Face” was my number one in April and May 2009.
So for this month's second trip back in time, it's only a few short steps back to the final year of the "noughties", which ended less than nineteen months ago. (It feels like longer!) Although two tracks from 2009 are still in my top forty breakers, it now seems certain that neither of them will improve on their current peaks - and the last two hits originating from that year dropped out of the top forty at the beginning of this month, so its overall chart can now be finalised. For all the preceding years in the second half of this decade, fewer than a hundred tracks reached the breakers, and to complete annual top hundreds I had to add some further CD singles I bought. However, 2009 saw a marked improvement - with a grand total of 114 breakers. So I extended today's retro countdown to a seven-hour YouTube journey covering them all!

Sixty-four of the breakers went on to enter my top forty, half of those reached the top ten, and fifteen peaked in the top three - including seven number ones. Anyone who has followed this thread in recent years will have seen those come and go, in this order - Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Little Boots, Fake Blood, Dash Berlin, Bananarama, Lady GaGa and finally Caro Emerald - so these ought to be the strongest contenders for the top track of the year. However, it was a very close battle at the top between (most of) these and some of the other major successes from 2009. Could something else that didn't get to number one manage to beat all of those that did? If so, it would have to be something special. A most unusual, distinctive worldwide hit - maybe even a collaboration between a Romanian and a Russian? There can't be many of those.....can there?

I love Little Boots and have her album, but never heard 'Love Kills'. It's B-side on single? :roll:

Music, which I like in your chart:
- Little Boots (She is Wonderful)
- Lily Allen
- Lady Gaga
- Sophie Ellis Bextor
- Marina & Diamonds
- Shakira
- Lady Antebellum
- Aqua

I think your number #1 song is underrated here. :wink:

You discovered Caro Emerald and Wynter Gordon quite early :o
My annual charts are based on the original/earliest release dates, no matter what country, or if they were only album tracks. Everything here really does date back to 2009, even though some are still enjoying success in other places now!

Caro Emerald entered the Dutch top 40 with "A Night Like This" in the last week of 2009 - and "Back It Up" had been a hit there a few months earlier.

I foind "Love Kills" as the B-side of the seven-inch single of "Remedy" - and on a CD EP called "Illuminations" - but, although it was not originally on her album, it's possible that it may have since been added to a reissued version.

Freddie Mercury's original version is hundreds of places higher in my all-time list - but, in the very competitive year of 1984 (now the only one from the 1980's still to be covered!) it actually won't be much higher than Little Boots is in 2009.....

By way of apology for the lack of action - there have been relatively few new entries in the various European charts I regularly listen to, and not much new music I've heard elsewhere that I like! - I'm posting my new chart an hour earlier than usual, as August begins in central Europe rather than the UK......

As the movement in various singles charts across the continent continues to slow, almost to a snail’s pace, mine rather follows suit this time - although just five hits in the top forty remain in exactly the same positions as in July. They are former Chartbusters by Kate Ryan and Sebastian Cruz featuring Miryel, as “LoveLife” and “Chasing Dreams” stay at 15 and 11 respectively.....Alexandra Stan’s “Mr Saxobeat”, which sticks at number four.....the former number one by Hooverphonic, “Anger Never Dies”, still in the runner-up position.....and last month’s new chart-topper, as Goose make a second appearance at number one with “Synrise”. There are seven climbers - which is more than in June or July! - including two from Lady GaGa, both now inside the top five. “Judas” moves up another five places to number five in its third month in the top forty, while “The Edge Of Glory” advances two positions from there to this month’s number three. The other four new entries from July also improve on their debuts - Anna Rossinelli is up five at 14, Gianna Nannini and Armin van Buuren featuring Laura V are both up seven, at 33 and 25 respectively, and Martin Solveig featuring Kele has this month’s Rapid Riser, as “Ready 2 Go” races up nine places to number sixteen. The only other climber is Katie Melua’s “The Flood”, which reaches my top ten in its fifth month in the top forty - but she also has the fastest faller, with her album track “A Moment of Madness” tumbling six notches to number 36. Twenty-five other tracks descend this time - although an incredible eighteen of those slip just one place each! They include “We No Speak Americano” by Yolanda Be Cool and D-Cup - last month’s 37, this month’s 38, and now in my top forty for thirteen months. All of this means that there are only two new entries this time. “The Rain” by Markus Schulz and “Coming Home” by Diddy Dirty Money featuring Skylar Grey have dropped out, making room for a second hit for Yelle - “Que Veux-Tu”, at 31 - and a strong debut at number 18 for last month’s Chartbuster from Christina Perri, “Jar Of Hearts”.

There is not much action in the top forty breakers either this month - with twenty-one of the potential future hits not actually moving any nearer to the chart than they were in July. However, four of the others make reasonable advances, for Lolita, Sara Bareilles, Ferry Corsten and Rebecca Black - and there are four brand new breakers, all of which are by acts who are already currently in my top forty with their first hits. And, in even more of a coincidence, they’re all among the eighteen tracks sliding one place. Alexis Jordan is down from 23 to 24 with her recent long-running Dutch number one, “Happiness”, and could follow that up with “Good Girl”. Duck Sauce were at 38, and are now at 39, with “Barbra Streisand” - and occupy the very same spot in the breakers with the equally as strange “Big Bad Wolf”. On YouTube, one respondent wittily asked “Where can I find the lyrics to this?”. I have no idea who that was - but it’s quite possible that it was somebody born in 1975. Or failing that, 1991.....? Sander Van Doorn falls from 12 to 13 in the top forty this month with “Love Is Darkness”, and was quite unlucky not to become September’s guaranteed new entry with his instrumental “Koko”. Currently in the top twenty in his homeland, this was the most impressive new track I heard this month - until this last week. The new Chartbuster is by the artist who slides from 34 to 35 this time with an instrumental which originally entered, and peaked, at number two last October - but went on to chart in the UK with added vocals and a slightly different title. That vocal version didn’t really help the instrumental to remain in my chart for eleven months so far - but there is already an instrumental and a vocal version of his latest follow-up, and this time they bear entirely different titles. Not only that, but the 21-year-old performer from Stockholm, Sweden is also using a different alias. “Bromance” was credited to most of his real name, “Tim Berg” - but my Record of the Month for August 2011 is by.....Avicii. With lyrics, it's called “Fade Into Darkness" - and, without them, it’s “Penguin”.
