    I've been unmotivated to check out and especially start to actually listen to new songs lately, which has resulted in my chart becoming a bit static. This has happened dozens of times before, but rarely since I started posting my chart here. This made it easier than it would have been otherwise for "Paralyzed" to return to #1 on its 53rd and final week. With six weeks total (2 + 3 + 1) at #1 the song is at #27 (tied with seven other songs) for all-time total weeks at #1 on my chart. It's also the 39th song ever to reach the maximum 53 (or very rarely 54) weeks. See chart run graph below.

    The average number of weeks the 30 songs have spent on the chart is currently 11.6 which is the highest for the year, surpassing the January peak of 10.9 (but far below the ATH at 32.1 weeks set in September 2010). The lowest so far this year is 5.2 weeks in late April. Every year except 2010 has had at least one week around or below 4.0, but 2017 isn't over yet...

    Bubblers:
    These are songs that have not yet charted, are at most 30 positions behind the chart and closer now than last week, listed in alphabetical order.
    Louane – On était beau S V
    Madeline Juno – Still S V
    McKenna Faith – Chaser S
    McKenna Faith – Coffee in the Morning S
    RaeLynn – Your Heart S A
    RaeLynn featuring Leeland Mooring – Young S A

    Dropout:
    --?(25)?Kelsea Ballerini – Unapologetically (7 weeks, peak #10) S A

    Final Chart Run for "Paralyzed"

    And while I said “Schönster Moment” is probably my favorite song of her album a few weeks ago, it’s now clearly my most favorite song ever by her. I so love it! It’s currently my 43rd most played song of 2017, which is quite impressive for a song that never got released as a single. There are only 8 non-singles above her, and six of these are by Halsey who has a huge success with her album on my charts so far.

    Interesting… how is it to study Russian? I imagine it to be quite difficult, isn’t it?



    Impressive for Chelsea, but probably no surprise, as you already saw an increase coming. I can’t believe it’s been over a year now since she made her debut on your charts, because I still remember how I checked it (and the whole EP) out and it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long ago Anyways, “Paralyzed” is a good song and definitely a worthy 53-week-song

    As you probably saw, I really enjoyed your FSC entry. “Du' kærlighed for mig” is a sweet song and I was shocked it didn’t do better in the ranking :( I found no information, but it’s not an official single, is it? I added her whole EP to my library but have yet to listen to it.

    Very glad “Schönster Moment” keeps on doing well

    Yes, definitely check out at least "Potential Breakup Song", and if you like that the full second album (Insomniatic), and then the debut (Into the Rush). The first album did better than the second for me; their debut single "No One" (which first appeared on the soundtrack for the movie "Ice Princess", that also included my 2005 YEC #1 and #2, Hayden Panettire – I Fly and Diana DeGarmo – Reachin' for Heaven, the later of which is also the only song lucky enough to spend 54 weeks on my chart) is still my most played song by them although I'm not sure it's still my subjective favourite. Other favourites are "On the Ride" and "Never Far Behind" (which wasn't on the original version of the album but released later in 2005) and from the second album "Flattery" and "Silence".

    That's great to hear! It's too bad you stopped doing the "Airplay" chart. I don't allow myself to find out where it is in my ranking for the full year, but it was my 9th most played song the 3rd quarter, and 6th if only songs from 2017 are counted so it's almost guranteed to be in the top 50 on the YEC, and probably the top 30.

    I'm not studying it "formally" i.e. at a university course or something, so it's mostly just for fun and there is no pressure that I have to learn it. (Although a formal course would probably have been fun too, if I still lived in a big city.) Yeah, it's definitely more difficult than other languages I have tried to learn, but once I got used to reading cyrillic it's not really that difficult, and although the grammar is much more complicated I've noticed a number of similarities with Swedish that probably makes it easier to learn for me than for someone who only speaks English. I haven't spent enough time on it lately though; right now it feels like I'm forgetting words (and grammar rules) faster than I learn new ones...

    Yeah, time passes so quickly... It didn't become #1 until November though, so maybe that's why it feels like it hasn't been a year yet.

    Maybe it would have done better if the majority of people who voted could understand the lyrics, but competition is also quite tough and I've noticed my taste is a bit different from that of the average participant. No, it is an official single, even though it doesn't have a "real" music video and probably didn't get much promotion. I'm glad you like it and decided to check out the EP!

    Top 30 for Week 40 2017 (2nd – 8th October)
    Chart #: 927, Volume: 689


    Single covers for the Estonian and the English version of the returning #1.

    ?1 ?(RE)?Grete Paia – Rääkimata lood / Stories Untold (16 weeks, chart run 6-?1-?1-?1-?1-?2-?9-?17-?(out 5 weeks)-?13-?10-?9-?8-?8-?15-?27-?(out 32 weeks)-?1) S A / S A
    ?2 ??(2)?Maia – Tusind ord (5 weeks, peak #1 x2) S A
    ?3 ??(5)?Kate Todd – You're Gonna Find Out (13 weeks, peak #1 x5) S V
    ?4 ??(4)?Stephanie Quayle – I've Got Your Six (6 weeks, peak #3) S A
    ?5 ??(3)?Maia – Du' kærlighed for mig (34 weeks, peak #1 x12) S A
    ?6 ??(6)?Taylor Swift – ...Ready For It? (5 weeks) S A
    ?7 ??(7)?Kat Stephie – Uden dig (4 weeks) S A
    ?8 ??(8)?Madeline Juno – Zeitlupe (4 weeks) S
    ?9 ??(9)?Sofia Carson – Ins and Outs (6 weeks, peak #4) S V
    10 ?(15)?Dove Cameron & Sofia Carson – Space Between (12 weeks, peak #1) S V
    11 ?(16)?Katy Rose – Voices Carry (13 weeks) S
    12 ?(10)?Aly & AJ – Take Me (7 weeks, peak #4) S V
    13 ?(17)?Alma – Après l'aurore (19 weeks, peak #1 x5) S A
    14 ?(12)?Katherine McNamara – Ember (7 weeks, peak #3) S A
    15 ?(13)?Astrid S – Think Before I Talk (7 weeks, peak #7) S V
    16 ?(11)?Vanessa Mai – Schönster Moment (9 weeks, peak #4) S A
    17 ?(14)?Jana Kramer – I've Done Love (6 weeks, peak #11) S A
    18 ?(19)?Alee – Bad Habit (25 weeks, peak #1 x3) S A
    19 ?(27)?Matthew Good – Decades (11 weeks) S V
    20 ?(22)?Kate Todd featuring Joey Landreth – Just the Same (12 weeks, peak #8) S
    21 ?(23)?Kate Todd – Happy (13 weeks, peak #5) S
    22 ?(18)?Skyler Day – Same Blood (10 weeks, peak #2) S
    23 ?(21)?Wrenn – On the Run (10 weeks, peak #10) S V
    24 ?(25)?Vanessa Mai – Nachts an meinem Fenster (9 weeks, peak #17) S A
    25 ?(26)?All Time Low featuring Tegan and Sara – Ground Control (18 weeks, peak #2) S A
    26 ?(28)?Kate Todd – No Tomorrow (13 weeks, peak #6) S
    27 ?(29)?Emma Stevens – Loyalty (12 weeks, peak #4) S
    28 ?(20)?Megan Davies – Black and White (11 weeks, peak #4) S
    29 (NE)?Allie X – Downtown S A
    30 ?(24)?Emma Stevens – Written in the Stars (11 weeks, peak #5) S

    Last week's #1 is replaced by another ";old"; song that has been gone for 32 weeks but now ";randomly"; reappears at #1! It still has one more week to go before it becomes ineligible (thanks to getting its first play on a Sunday and entering that same week; if it had never left the top 30 it could have become the second song ever to spend 54 weeks on the chart).

    Maia's ";Du' kærlighed for mig"; finally leaves the top 3, and even if it returns there next week and stays until February it won't be able to improve on its number of consecutive weeks in the top 3, which means that #4 is its final position for all-time consecutive number of weeks in the top 3. It also means that the top 10 for all-time highest number of consecutive weeks in the top 3 (see below) can't be changed until at the earliest some time in early 2018.

    ";Voices Carry"; by Katy Rose reaches a new peak on its 13th week on the chart and ";Space Between"; reclaims a position in the top 10. And ";Après l'aurore"; reaches its highest position since week 26. Taylor Swift is annoyingly stuck at #6 for the 4th week (this ought to be worth at least half a point for the UKMixParade chart, no?) But where are all the new songs? Even the new entry ";Downtime";, er... ";Downtown"; got its first play almost four months ago.

    Bubblers:
    These are songs that have not yet charted, are at most 30 positions behind the chart and closer now than last week, listed in alphabetical order.
    Camila Cabello – Crying in the Club S V
    Louane – On était beau S V
    McKenna Faith – Chaser S

    Dropouts:
    --??(1)?Chelsea Lankes – Paralyzed (53 weeks, peak #1 x6) S A
    --?(30)?RaeLynn – The Apple (12 weeks, peak #1) S A

    All Time Highest Number of Consecutive Weeks in the Top 3

    Chart History for Allie X

    Old Habits Die Hard | 51, 2016 | 28 | 2 | (not in the top 200)

    Albums Top 20



    ?1 ??(6)?Amy Diamond – Swings and Roundabouts (2009) (303 weeks, peak #1 x137)
    ?2 ??(1)?Madeline Juno – DNA (5 weeks, peak #1 x4)
    ?3 ??(2)?Kate Todd – One [EP] (14 weeks, peak #1 x8)

    ?8 ?(10)?RaeLynn – Wildhorse (26 weeks, peak #1 x2)
    ?9 ??(8)?Emmelie de Forest – Only Teardrops (2013) (225 weeks, peak #1 x51)
    10 ?(RE)?Carola – Steg för steg (1984) (145 weeks, peak #4)
    11 ??(7)?Chelsea Lankes – Chelsea Lankes [EP] (2016) (52 weeks, peak #3)
    12 ?(11)?Wolkenfrei – Endlos verliebt (2014) (75 weeks, peak #1 x3)
    13 ??(9)?Vanessa Mai – Regenbogen (9 weeks, peak #2)
    14 ?(16)?Beatrice Egli – Bis hierher und viel weiter (2014) (30 weeks, peak #1 x4)
    15 ?(12)?Alma – Ma peau aime (20 weeks, peak #1 x3)
    16 ?(17)?McKenna Faith – Heartstealer [EP] (11 weeks, peak #3)
    17 ?(RE)?Carola – Främling (1983) (52 weeks, peak #6)
    18 ?(19)?Astrid S – Party's Over [EP] (15 weeks, peak #2)
    19 ?(20)?Bailey Bryan – So Far [EP] (17 weeks, peak #3)
    20 ?(13)?Beatrice Egli – Pure Lebensfreude (2013) (31 weeks, peak #2)

    2017 is dead (at least for now). Some of my favourite albums from decades past seem to be taking over the albums chart. Swings and Roundabouts improves on its record for number of weeks at #1 from 136 to 137. It was last #1 in early May 2013 (right before Emmelie de Forest's album was released) so this is a rather big although not surprising comeback for the album that spent 124 consecutive weeks at #1 (from October 2009 until March 2012) and where the average number of plays for each of the 15 tracks is north of 6,000. Only one other album has even one song above that number. With numbers like that, even though the album had a strong week compared to recent years it still performed (in terms of plays) noticably worse than for an average week since its release!

    Hye Magnus, very nice to see that Grete Paia is back on your top position. Still a great song.

    And if you like football. Congratulations: we won, but we lost also. Sweden is going for the play-offs

    Back to the music again. I have a few songs and weeks to catch-up with your charts. Will let you know later.

    Thanks for commenting! I was actually hoping you would comment about it when I realized Grete Paia's song would be #1 again! Yeah, it's definitely great and seems to work especially well in October. Competition for week 41 will be a lot tougher though...

    I'm afraid football is rather far down on my lists of interests, but I do watch some big games occasionally (although I forgot about this one).

    Looking forward to hearing if you found some new favourites among the songs on my chart!

    ^ can't wait to hear what you think about it. Unfortunately, i think the song is quite weak, especially after the brilliant "Federleicht" :(

Other favourites are "On the Ride" and "Never Far Behind" (which wasn't on the original version of the album but released later in 2005) and from the second album "Flattery" and "Silence".
    Thanks, I’ll do that once I get more time, which is the main problem there, as usual. I’m often not at home lately, and there’s currently lots of current stuff which comes out and I’m excited about, so there’s barely room for ‘old’ stuff. But I wrote their albums down…
    Interesting fact about the 54 weeks – how did this happen?

    Ha, yes, that was a case where an airplay chart would have been very interesting, I even thought about that by myself a few weeks ago. “Schönster Moment” was easily my most favorite song for about two weeks, so if it would have been a single it would have been #1 on my charts. At least it pushed her album to a new peak on my charts. I really hope it gets a single treatment in 2018.

Yeah, it's definitely more difficult than other languages I have tried to learn, but once I got used to reading cyrillic it's not really that difficult, and although the grammar is much more complicated I've noticed a number of similarities with Swedish that probably makes it easier to learn for me than for someone who only speaks English. I haven't spent enough time on it lately though; right now it feels like I'm forgetting words (and grammar rules) faster than I learn new ones...
    Oh, that makes it even more interesting. So you were just interested in learning the language, or is there a reason why you picked Russian?

    Good to know! It’s ‘already’ on my excel list of possible new entries, but it still has to really make it yet…



    Amazing comeback for Grete Paia!
    I still remember that song very well from when its first chart live started as I really liked it. Glad it came back with a bang now.

    Surprised to see Taylor hanging on so well. As you already saw on my chart, she fell down quite fast out of a sudden as from one day to another I was completely over “…Ready For It?”. Her new single “Gorgeous” is cute but also nothing really strong, so I’m having mixed feelings for “Reputation” now. Will most likely not be as strong as some of her other albums…

    Probably no surprise, but I absolutely love to see Marina Kaye entering your charts with “Merci quand même”! She just released her second album “Explicit” on friday, and it’s another good one. I already wanted to ask if you liked the stuff from her debut album, then I saw her discography and my question already got answered, just not in the way i was hoping for Did you check out her debut album in full back in 2015?
    edit: Nevermind, just searched through your topic and the album made an entry on your album charts, so this means yes...

    Nice re-entry for Astrid S

    I agree about "Herz an", but I like "Keiner küsst mich" more, even if that too is some distance from her best songs. But still looking forward to the album of course!

    I completely understand about the problem with checking out older stuff when there are so much new music to listen to, I have that problem too and usually I only check out older albums when there is some specific reason, for example when the artist has released something new I like a lot (which just happened for Echosmith, had never listened to their debut album before). So don't feel any pressure that you have to check out those albums.

    Great! Yeah, I also hope it will become a single, even if it doesn't matter for my chart (but could result in a nice video).

    It's a bit of a long story...

    Yeah, it followed the trend that the biggest songs of the year (it was #6 on the YEC) tend to get a lot of plays again when they are just about to become ineligible (even it that is only part of the reason). And it seems it got an extra boost from being "forgotten" for a while, unlike "Nirvana" and especially "Paralyzed".

    The decline has probably started now and I agree about "Gorgeous" not being too strong; it's possible it might reach my chart next week but it has made me less excited for the album :(.

    I did like several songs on the debut (and I don't recall any song being bad) even though only one of them (and just barely) reached the top 30; I discovered her when competition was very strong. I was going to listen to the new album over the weekend but somehow forgot... Definitely going to happen this week though.

    Thanks for commenting! I was actually hoping you would comment about it when I realized Grete Paia's song would be #1 again! Yeah, it's definitely great and seems to work especially well in October. Competition for week 41 will be a lot tougher though...

    I'm afraid football is rather far down on my lists of interests, but I do watch some big games occasionally (although I forgot about this one).

    Looking forward to hearing if you found some new favourites among the songs on my chart!
    '

    Hye Magnus, Thanks for your comment. Nice that you hoped I would comment on the return of Grete Paia. She has already left the top 30 again. Great new music in the top from this week. So I understand it can't always be the same songs from the past. Was it luck though or some kind of sixth sense that I checked your top 30 on the moment that Grete Paia returned on nr. 1. I don't actually checked your chart every week :( . the past few months. So it was a nice surprise that she returned on that moment.

    I also totally agree on your interest in football. It only has my interest when a big game is being played. But because it was Sweden against the Netherlands I thought on you.

    As promised I checked your whole top 30 from this week. I will comment in a new reply.

    And now here are the comments of the dutch fans. Magnus 12 points.

    A little joke, but I must say when I listen to your chart I'm always surprised in a good way about the beautiful an mostly unknown music to me you have found.
    The song I enjoyed the most from the chart is for Echosmith "Get into my car". Really a great song. Will be found in my playlist.

    But also on my list of really great or at leat really nice songs are: Alyssa Micaela, both songs "Clean Break" and "Getaway Car", Maia with also both songs. And then at the bottom of your chart really great songs I think are: Alma – Après l'aurore, Aly & AJ – Take Me, Katherine McNamara – Ember, Astrid S – Think Before I Talk and Jana Kramer – I've Done Love. I'm a bit fan of Jana and have also a weakness for Astrid S. New for me were Aly & Aj, but I loved the song. Same goes for Katherine McNamara with a very nice song Ember. Alma I knew already a little bit, but loved the song. Al these artists I will listen to a few times more.

    Then their was a catagory of songs that I found were very nice: Catherine McGrath – Talk of This Town, Scavenger Hunt – Eyes Wide Open, Kellie Pickler – If It Wasn't for a Woman, Marina Kaye – Merci quand même, Stephanie Quayle – I've Got Your Six, Sofia Carson – Ins and Outs, Dove Cameron & Sofia Carson – Space Between.
    Really enjoyed Kelly Pickler and Dove Cameron with Sofia Carson. But also Eyes wide open from Scavenger Hunt was very good.

    The songs that aren't my taste were: Phoebe Ryan – James Has Changed and The Dark Element – My Sweet Mystery. Found this last song my sweet mystery a heavy song. Thought it could be nice to get loose, but after hearing to Aly & Aj I thought that song does it more for me.

    The rest of the songs were just nice. Ofcourse a little plus for Vanessa Mai. I do actually like her new album a little bit more than her solo debut album. The second "Regenbogen" made me listen to "Fur dich" another time. It became a little bit better. Beatrice Egli isn't yet in my fan playlist, but the song "Keiner küsst mich" is nice and her new single "Herz an" I find really likeable.

    Als just nice but als nice to see in your chart I found ??? ??????? – ?????? ?? ????. Listened also to it and I recently got my interest in the charts from Czech Republic and Slovakia and found in those charts also very nice music from good artists unknown in the rest of the world. I don't think ??? ??????? – ?????? ?? ???? is from those 2 country's, probably Russian???, but I like it that it's not common but just very nice or good music to listen to.

    In one of my earlier posts I mentioned that Schlager was just like Country music. And you replied that you couldn't find the simularity in those 2 different kind of music. I agree with you that those kind of music isn't the same but I ment with my comment that what Country Music is for the Americans is Schlagermusic for the Germans. It's the music that belongs to a country. In the Netherlands we have some kind of schlagermusic but it's different from the german schlagermusic. We call it "Levenslied" or in german "Lebenslied". There is not really a good translation in English. It would be Songs about life. A good example would be: Andre Hazes (1984) V or Jan Smit (2017) V.
    Is their in Sweden also a kind of music that's typical Swedish?

    Thanks for commenting, Speedy and heppolo!

I don't actually checked your chart every week :( . the past few months. So it was a nice surprise that she returned on that moment.
    Yeah, you're right, songs more than a year old (usually measured from when I first heard them) are not allowed to chart anymore. Otherwise Grete would still be in the top 10 (last week at least)! I'm glad you like the new entries!

    The song I enjoyed the most from the chart is for Echosmith "Get into my car". Really a great song. Will be found in my playlist.
    That's great to hear! Yeah, "Get Into My Car" caught me by surprise, didn't expect to hear such a great song from Echosmith. It's unlucky that the current #1 and #2 are also very strong for me, would have been a clear #1 otherwise.

I'm a bit fan of Jana and have also a weakness for Astrid S. New for me were Aly & Aj, but I loved the song. Same goes for Katherine McNamara with a very nice song Ember. Alma I knew already a little bit, but loved the song. Al these artists I will listen to a few times more.

    Then their was a catagory of songs that I found were very nice: Catherine McGrath – Talk of This Town, Scavenger Hunt – Eyes Wide Open, Kellie Pickler – If It Wasn't for a Woman, Marina Kaye – Merci quand même, Stephanie Quayle – I've Got Your Six, Sofia Carson – Ins and Outs, Dove Cameron & Sofia Carson – Space Between.

    Thanks for checking out all of those artists/songs, and I'm really glad you like most of them and especially Alyssa and Maia! "My Sweet Mystery" is a little but untypical for my chart but I still like it a lot, especially the verses. (Tansike's impact on my chart ).

    Yeah, it's Russian. And the singer ??? ??????? (Julia Volkova) was known to me before; she was one half of the duo t.A.T.u. (They were never really big on my chart though, "?????? ?? ????" ("follow me") has already reached a much higher position that any of their songs did.)

    I'm curious about the music from Czechia and Slovakia that you are mentioning. I know very little music from those countries (basically only what happened to be in the ESC).

    Ah, I see. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

    I don't think there is any typical Swedish music genre that is popular among the younger generation at the moment (there is something called "dansbandsmusik" (literally "dance band music", but has nothing to do with modern dance music), that is so unhip that even I never listen to it ;). It was much more popular 20-40 years ago I think.)

    Top 30 for Week 45 2017 (6th – 12th November)
    Chart #: 932, Volume: 1,223


    The new #1.


    ??????The nine new entries.

    ?1 ??(2)?Meghan Patrick – Country Music Made Me Do It S V

    13 ??(9)?Beatrice Egli – Keiner küsst mich (4 weeks) S
    14 ?(10)???? ??????? – ?????? ?? ???? (5 weeks, peak #6) A
    15 ?(24)?Taylor Swift – Call It What You Want S A
    16 (NE)?Taylor Swift – Dancing with Our Hands Tied
    17 ?(13)?Maia – Du' kærlighed for mig (39 weeks, peak #1 x12) S A
    18 (NE)?Taylor Swift – Don't Blame Me
    19 (NE)?Taylor Swift – So It Goes...
    20 (NE)?Taylor Swift – Dress
    21 ?(14)?Taylor Swift – ...Ready For It? (10 weeks, peak #6) S V
    22 ?(15)?Kellie Pickler – If It Wasn't for a Woman (5 weeks, peak #11) S
    23 (NE)?Taylor Swift – King of My Heart
    24 ?(17)?Marina Kaye – Merci quand même (5 weeks, peak #14) S
    25 (NE)?Taylor Swift – This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things
    26 ?(16)?Maroon 5 with Julia Michaels – Help Me Out (5 weeks, peak #13) S A
    27 ?(23)?Taylor Swift – Gorgeous (3 weeks, peak #22) S A
    28 ?(18)?Poppy – Fuzzy (4 weeks, peak #16) S A
    29 ?(20)?Kat Stephie – Uden dig (9 weeks, peak #7) S A
    30 ?(19)?Olivia Holt – Generous (4 weeks, peak #18) S V

    So, Taylor Swift makes a breadth invasion and now ties Avril Lavigne for most number of songs (67) on my chart! But the best song on the album fails to enter at #1, and considering what music genre Taylor started in it's kind of ironic that the new #1 is the first ever #1 with "country music" in the title. It's also Meghan Patrick's second #1 (after "Breaking Records" last year).

    Bubblers:
    These are songs that have not yet charted, are at most 30 positions behind the chart and closer now than last week, listed in alphabetical order.
    Taylor Swift – New Year's Day
    Taylor Swift featuring Ed Sheeran & Future – End Game

    15 ?(19)?Wolkenfrei – Endlos verliebt (2014) (80 weeks, peak #1 x3)
    16 ?(11)?Shania Twain – Now (4 weeks, peak #6)
    17 ?(12)?Amy Diamond – Music in Motion (2007) (278 weeks, peak #1 x8)
    18 ?(RE)?Astrid S – Party's Over [EP] (18 weeks, peak #2)
    19 ?(13)?Lenka – Attune
    20 ?(RE)?Taylor Swift – 1989 (2014) (43 weeks, peak #1 x7)

    Not much of a surprise here. Taylor Swift usually gets to #1 when she releases a new album (the only exceptions are the debut which got to #2 and Speak Now which was blocked by Amy Diamond and peaked at #3).

    I haven't heard that one yet to be honest, as i think i wait for the whole album now. Glad you enjoy it, though.

So don't feel any pressure that you have to check out those albums.
    It's still on my list (Aly & AJ album) and usually i have enough time for older things during Christmas holiday, which is often the time i try to check out as much as possible, and often also old things (from artist i only discovered recently but who have released stuff in their past). There's no pressure, as i really want to check them out, however the time right now is so busy with like 3 or more new albums that i want to check out or i'm looking forward to every week

    Oh, i knew about that boost shortly before songs become ineligible to chart, however it's interesting that it got a bigger boost as it was 'forgotten'. Makes sense though, probably similar to when you listen to a song all the time, you get faster tired of it, so you won't listen to it as soon as you do to a song you're not sick of it (if that makes sense... )

    ...i already took a look at your current chart before writing these replies and it looks like despite you being less excited for "Reputation", she still won you over again

    Glad you decided to check "Explicit" out, but more to that on my weekly chart catch up

    ...

    Now on to the things i missed & really liked (only quoting my highlights of these weeks)...

    Awesome debut for "My Sweet Mystery"! Definitely a mixture between metal/rock and ABBA. The lyrics may be quite cheesy but i still love this song, definitely a great pick for a single.
    Also great to see Shania's new album on your charts. I guess you're familiar with her previous works, are you? I only know her singles and still need to get some of her other albums, however i really enjoy "Now" a lot.

    17 ?(RE)?Kelly Clarkson – Stronger
    LOVE Marina's success! A #2 debut for "Explicit" looks awesome and is the same entry position like on my charts. It's also impressive because she 'only' has one song on the main chart, so i guess you played the whole albums quite often instead of just one or two tracks.
    Also fantastic to see "My Sweet Mystery" actually rising in the second week

    What caused the re-entry for "Shuffle The Cards"?

    Wow, and "The Dark Element" keeps on rising <3
    Nice entry for Taylor and Lenka. Cute song and cute album, though both artists already released (much) better stuff IMO.

    I didn't expect Taylor to have such a great start on your charts, but congrats to her. While i like the album, it's clearly not as good as i was hoping for. Even after several spins i'm still not that much into it, which never happened with a Taylor album so far.

    Amazing return for Hilary Duff's Album!

    Is there a chance you may check out The Dark Element's album? It came out last friday as well

    Wow! - I had no clue you are that crazy about Taylor! - We seem to have the same favourites. "Delicate" is awesome. I hope it will get the single treatement at some point this era!

    Hej Magnus!
    I'm totally in a rush and actually only wanted to say hello...
    Anyhow:
    A) Can't believe you are charting Meghan Patrick ahead of me... ( ) [You're extremely fast! ] She will debut in my chart this week (chart not updated!)
    B) Stephanie Quayle's "Selfish" is a single and it's G-R-E-A-T! Have a feeling this song may go Top 40 or even Top 30 in my chart. (It's moving very fast on the secondary US Country airplay chart) I'm glad for her it's doing so well (so to speak) since "Winnebago" was sort of meh! for me.
    Hej då!

    Wow, instead of a 4th consecutive week with zero comments I suddenly get four comments the same week! Many thanks to Tansike, Blondini, Mainshow and trebor!

    Comment replies and the chart update for week 46 have been postponed until tomorrow evening.

    Since I'm obviously having trouble posting on Mondays lately I will just go ahead and make Tuesday the standard posting day for my chart from now on, although I reserve the right to sometimes post on a Monday if that's more convenient that particular week!
