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


For the second month in a row, David Guetta has fallen to number three immediately after having a new entry at number one. “Without You” follows “Titanium” downwards, and my new chart-topper is the first for Avicii, with a little help from Leona Lewis. Tim Bergling, born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1989, failed to improve on his number two debut last October with “Bromance”, but now climbs one place to the summit with “Collide / Fade Into Darkness / Penguin”. That winning combination is my 189th number one, by the narrowest of margins over this month’s highest new entry. November’s Chartbuster from Lana Del Rey, “Video Games”, crashes in at number two - and must be a strong contender for the first number one of 2012. She’s from New York, USA - but the other four new entries this time are by acts from different parts of Europe. From Sweden, Lykke Li has her first success with “I Follow Rivers” (primarily due to its “Magician Remix”) at 15 - and, from Scotland, Amy MacDonald gets her fifth with “Love Love”, which finally arrives at number 40 after ten months as a breaker. Denmark’s Agnes Obel and Belgium’s Basto now both have two hits in adjacent positions - “Just So” enters at 29, below “Riverside”, while “Again And Again” comes in at 34, just above the former Chartbuster and ex-number one “Gregory’s Theme”. Twenty-one tracks moving down this month also include former Chartbuster “In Love For A While” by Anna Rossinelli - the fastest faller, taking a ten-place dive to 38 - and Martin Solveig’s ex-number one “Hello”, at 39 and still the longest laster. But he also has one of ten climbers, as “Ready 2 Go” creeps back up one place to number 21. Lolita rebounds too after falling eight places in November, bouncing right back to her number 22 peak with “Joli Garcon” - while this month’s Rapid Riser is Robyn, up fourteen places to number 26 with “Call Your Girlfriend”. That leaves just four non-movers this time - Britney Spears at 4, Christina Perri at 11, Sebastian Cruz and Miryel at 23 and Gianna Nannini at 24.

While many potential hits that originally appeared in the top 40 breakers in the first half of this year slowly edge ever nearer to the chart, there are much faster upward moves for more recent releases by Coldplay and Jennifer Lopez - and there’s room for nine brand new contenders. Two are by artists who have previously had at least one number one hit in my chart - Lady GaGa and Little Boots return with “Marry The Night” and “Shake” respectively - and Lana Del Rey could rapidly follow up “Video Games” with the other side of the same single, “Blue Jeans”. But the only other new breaker this time by an act that has previously impressed me is “Blood, Tears and Gold”. Three other tracks from the same album by Hurts couldn’t quite reach the top forty - “Stay”, “Wonderful Life” and “Sunday” peaked at 72, 77 and 83 - but could this be the one to go further? Meanwhile, after much worldwide success with a series of releases that I didn’t like at all, Katy Perry finally has a more tuneful effort with “The One That Got Away”. Both Joe Goddard and Valentina are from London, but their recent release “Gabriel” has performed considerably better in Belgium than in the UK - and the other three new potential hits have also been charting there this month. “The World Is Gonna End Tonight” is the current single from School Is Cool, a young “Baroque pop” band - while Wouter De Backer, better known as Gotye, has spent an incredible twelve weeks at number one with “Somebody That I Used To Know”, ably assisted by New Zealand vocalist Kimbra. However, a more unusual lasting legacy may eventually be left by someone who, through almost no fault of her own, had an award named after her! The perfomer of this month’s Chartbuster was born in 1974, and sung for her country in the Eurovision Song Contest while still a teenager. She finished.....last. Many others have done that, of course, often to then disappear without trace - but something that was never forgotten was the outfit she wore. In its honour, the “Barbara Dex Award” is given annually to the worst-dressed participant in the contest - the most well-known winners including Guildo Horn and TaTu. Meanwhile, she has since doubled in age, but has continued making music. And her latest hit in her homeland is now a guaranteed new entry in my first chart of 2012. My Record of the Month for December 2011 is Barbara Dex, with “Before”.

Is the ESC "Fashion" award the only thing Barbara Dex lent her name to? (Cf the recently-nationalised Franco-Belgian bank Dexia. "Dex" could be a by-word for failure in Belgium!!!)

Shame Lana Del Rey didn't pinch that record - a far more deserving number on that Mr Bergling and Ms Lewis. There's quite a yawning chasm between the positions of "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans" on your chart, though!!!!

Somewhat astounded by how well you took to "Gutes Nitzwerk"!!!

I finally got around to checking the "Chasing Dreams" track, to check if it was a cover of the Sunscreem original - but it's not.

The two Lana Del Rey tracks certainly couldn't be much further apart than they are at the moment - at 2 and 117 respectively! - but, as the month progresses, I already suspect that they will be a lot closer together next time. And, although new entries at number two have failed to progress further much more often than not, it seems very possible that "Video Games" will climb to the top. I was surprised, but delighted, to discover that it has now reached number one in Germany!

Amazingly, this evening I've just made a similar discovery, while beginning to collect the YouTube links for one of this month's Retro features, about a fairly well-known (?) track from the first half of the 1970s ! :o

I never knew until today that a certain Greek singer of a song not without references to somewhere in Poland had also recorded an English version, replacing the original name in it with "Harry" ! :D

2 bits of good news, indeed! I assume this also means that the EP is available on CD in Germany. Fantastic, although I'd just sent out my final CD single order of the year (I buckled and pre-ordered Gotye as I realised that I was unlikely to be able to get to the shops during regular opening hours on my next trip over the border, for New Years)

Lana's next single Born To Die is better, IMO. Why so late with Lykke Li (great). Is it charting in Europe?

Yes indeed - and that was an important factor in its reaching the top! "Video Games" is only the fourth most downloaded single of the week there.

I thought I was quite up to date with that one! Yes, it's been number one in Belgium for the last three weeks - but now falls to number two there, as "Zanna" crashes straight in at the top for Selah Sue.... There's also a good chance that "I Follow Rivers" could enter the Dutch top forty in the next week or two.

Lykke Li's "I Follow Rivers" (The Magician Remix) was recently a number 1 hit in Belgium.

The original was released earlier this year and had much radio airplay. But not a huge hit in the charts.

Nice chart!!!

As my current chart still contains fairly equal numbers of releases from 2010 and 2011, I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to produce annual top hundreds for those years for quite some time yet. However, here now is the top hundred of another retro year:







I wrote:Tim Bergling, born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1989, failed to improve on his number two debut last October....
So now it's time to revisit more fully one of the first years for which I previously posted a shorter annual chart, a couple of years ago. Although the vast majority of the records I bought from 1989 were hits in the UK, Ireland and/or the Netherlands, the countries whose charts I was still able to follow fairly fully despite working very long hours, there are quite a few more obscure inclusions. Several of these were unavailable on YouTube when I originally featured 1989 - but some of them have appeared now, albeit not always in very good quality. On the other hand, a couple that had been there have since been withdrawn! Overall, seven are now missing - including, unfortunately, four of the top ten - so to fill the usual six hours today a few longer versions replaced the radio edits, including a ten-minute version of one of the many megamix medleys. Here, then, are my favourites from twenty-two years ago - and the number one is a single that didn't enter my monthly chart (at the top!) until June 1992, when, for certain notable reasons, it was a frequent feature on "Lifestyle Satellite Jukebox".....

I wrote:The perfomer of this month’s Chartbuster was born in 1974
So the second retro chart for December is a final trip back to the period before I ever started buying records and preparing my own monthly charts. Previously this year, I managed to produce annual countdowns of reasonable length for the latter part of the 1970s, and a chart that combined all releases I eventually bought that originated from 1969 and earlier - now it's time to fill the gap by addressing not just 1974, but also the other four preceding years.

In this period, I was at school (actually four different schools, partly as it was during this time that my family moved from my original birthplace to my present location) and, as far as I can recall, not really interested in music very much at all! But I did enjoy watching television, when I was allowed - which perhaps explains why (as in the surrounding periods) there are quite a few theme tunes here.

Less surprisingly, there are several Eurovision Song Contest entries, that I generally discovered much later on - but also quite a few more well-known (and less well-known!) British / European hits. Some of these I certainly would have become aware of only when either they were re-released (not necessarily in the UK) or when other acts covered them, rather more recently than.....27 to 31 years ago!

All in all, it's maybe quite a strange mixture of seventy-five tracks, which (tightly) fitted into four hours today, thanks to the below YouTube links - a few of which are not quite the versions I have listed, but they are usually fairly reasonable approximations. A notable exception is probably the track at exactly the half-way mark, a 1971 number one hit from Ireland, of which the only YouTube versions available are from.....1908 !

And, on the subject of "number one" and "Ireland", my top choice from these five years is actually an album track, not a single - but at least it's by an Irish group who most readers will have heard of. Here, then, are my top 75 of the early 1970s.....

Great great 70s classics! :D

Interesting to see Abba's "I've Been Waiting For You", as far as I know it was only released as a single in Australia and New Zealand (though it was the B-side to "So Long" in Europe) :o

Michael Holm's Tears Don't Lie (English translation - a US top 60 hit in English) was just mentioned in TOTP thread!. Never knew that tune had so many incarnations!

Nice early Clannad. Woo Benny Hill, Jacks, ABBA, Nilsson, "Chirpy", Pav, Mungo, Dragoon Guards, Wizzard, Mixtures, Lennon, Judge Dread.

1989: T Vamp is awesome (i was gutted it never went top 5)!! Twinkle: i came across (not literally!!) a rather rude video for that recently here (you have to certify you're 18 to watch it) i would imagine people looking for the sixties artist and finding that might get more than they bargained for. Apparently, the vid was broadcast on European TV uncut all the time!!

What a shame we can't see your Bumm Bumm! :lol:

I like Minnelli, Kirsty, Lambada (Carioca version is a bit more "pure", i think NH before!) - complicated history behind THAT tune and it's numerous incarnations, too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lambada_%28song%29, McLaren, Madonna, Erasure, Belinda, Seeds, Reynolds Girls.

Didn't know that U2 cover existed, never mind being a Dutch hit (b-side of All I Want Is You that got flipped over there)! It's OK but hardly essential U2.

I hadn't ever split the "pre-chart" tracks into individual years prior to preparing these recent postings, so it came as a slight surprise that, with a monthly number 38 peak, this was actually my number one of 1970 ! :D




Benny wrote:Interesting to see Abba's "I've Been Waiting For You", as far as I know it was only released as a single in Australia and New Zealand (though it was the B-side to "So Long" in Europe) :o
I'm not at all sure how I discovered that one - it might have been as an album track. It was one of many songs from continental Europe that became hits in Ireland for Gina, Dale Haze and the Champions - but their version doesn't seem to be on YouTube.




Blondini wrote:Michael Holm's Tears Don't Lie (English translation - a US top 60 hit in English) was just mentioned in TOTP thread!. Never knew that tune had so many incarnations!
I liked the later ones a lot - both Mark'Oh "Tears Don't Lie" and Gigi [D'Agostino] and Molly "Soleado" went to number one in my chart. While there wasn't much widespread interest in the latter, the former was very big in Europe, and even briefly charted in the UK.

That's probably the video that was frequently on Lifestyle Satellite Jukebox, as I mentioned in the introduction, which could be seen in the UK for at least a few months - maybe longer? It used to be on YouTube too, but they appear to have decided that it's no longer suitable for a wider audience. I've never been able to find out from which country the artists/single originated - does anybody know?!




Blondini wrote:Didn't know that U2 cover existed, never mind being a Dutch hit (b-side of All I Want Is You that got flipped over there)! It's OK but hardly essential U2.
Yes - I heard that one in the Dutch charts back at the time (I was working then, but recording Tros-Radio and Radio Veronica using timer-switches). It had a seven-week run in their top forty (26-17-12-10-15-22-38) but I have only very rarely heard it on the radio since then. "Everlasting Love" is the only U2 single I have ever liked!!!




Meanwhile, a week and a half ago, I wrote:There's also a good chance that "I Follow Rivers" could enter the Dutch top forty in the next week or two.
That turned out to be one of my better recent predictions.....it's new at 23 there this week. I suspect it will be somewhat higher than this in my chart next month!

Cool those 70's charts.

I would highly recommend Cat Stevens "Tea for the Tillerman" hybrid sacd. It's a 2011 (november) re-isssue by Analogue Productions (US niche-label). Incredible soundquality.

Available at e.g. ebay and jpc.de.

More info here: http://store.acousticsounds.com/d/75490 ... tereo_SACD

Analogue Productions also re-issued Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" which is imo better than the normal 2011 cd-remaster. The artwork is impeccable, must have for Pink Floyd-fans.

If you still want more, they also re-released the Creedence Clearwater Revival backcatalogue on hybrid sacd.

Next year The Doors are announced!

You could be on to something there.....although digging a little further into www.discogs.com reveals that the CNR record label, having been founded shortly after World War II (!) later expanded from the Netherlands to various other European countries.

I wondered if it might have still focussed on Dutch acts only - as I couldn't think of any singles I had on that label that weren't by artists from Holland - but, from the (no doubt very incomplete) list that Discogs has of releases from the same numerical sequence, there are quite a few acts from other countries that were clearly just handled by CNR in the Netherlands:


145.084 Suzanne Michaels - With Love (7") 1984
145.120 Ragazza - Oh Salvatore (7") 1984
145.144 Russ Abbot - Atmosphere (7") 1985
145 166 Opus - Fly High / Positive (7") 1984
145.184 Arrow - Long Time (7") 1984
145.188 Dingetje De Man Van Het Journaal (Goeienavond) (7") 1985
145.210 Sophia George - Girlie Girlie (7") 1986
145.239 Lanzalotti - Guilty (7") 1986
145.249 2 Belgen - Energy (7") 1986
145.251 Pasadena Dream Band - Zandvoort (7") 1986
145.288 Dutch Rhythm Steel And Show Band - Bananen (7") 1986
145.311 Judy Boucher - Can't Be With You Tonight (7") 1987
145.381 Els Telder - Takin' The Chances / Goodbye My Love (7") 1988
145.441-7 Blonde On Blonde - Sail Away (7") 1988
145.466-7 Roland & Bluesworkshop - I'll Give All I've Got (7") 1989
145.470-7 W.W. Band - Meissie Ik Ben Een Zeehond (7") 1988
145.530-7 Derek & The Dirt - Oh By The Way (7") 1989
145.634-5 Viola Wills - I Think I'm Falling In Love (12") 1990
145-642-7 Walter Capiau - Happy Birthday (7") 1990
145.725-7 Ad Swart - 'T Is Over (7") 1990
145.465-7 Skyblasters - From Now On / Make Me Feel So Hot (7") 1988
145.532-7 Twinkle - Hello (7") 1989
145.634-3 Viola Wills - I Think I'm Falling In Love (CD) 1990
146.023-7 Ad Swart - Hou Jij Zoveel Van Mij Als Ik Van Jou (7") 1991



However, further details of the Twinkle single there reveal that its writer was Hans van Hemert - and there is a vast list of other songs that he wrote, pretty much exclusively for Dutch artists.

Additionally, if, as I suspect, this was the only release of "Hello" - not just a Dutch release of a single that originated elsewhere (and it's certainly the one I have, and I'm not aware of any others) it does indeed seem very likely that Twinkle were Dutch singers.

It's a little surprising, though, that the single reached neither the sales-only chart (at that time, the Nationale Hitparade} nor even the Tipparade in the Netherlands - whereas it was a top thirty hit in Belgium.....
