    Ooh...so by the time you're reading this, you'll have moved into your new place? Congrats! Sorry to hear about all the stress (and lack of sleep), though **Hug** Hopefully you're getting more than 2-3 hours now that you're officially in your new home/done with your old apartment! Or maybe you just need the right snuggle buddy...?

    I'm about to enter Victory Road/Siegesstraße and my current team = Potentate the Empoleon, Router the Rotom, Malware the Porygon2 (still need to evolve it), Auger the Steelix/Stahlos, Broiler the Magmortar/Magbrant, and Snowplow the Mamoswine/Mamutel. I'm pretty happy with this squad, especially since it includes a few Pokémon that I've never used on any traveling team before. I've had a few "deaths," unfortunately, the saddest of which was Drapery the Wormadam/Burmadame (since I'd never used one before, she had a nifty Bug/Steel type combo, and she was on my main team for a long stretch of the game before getting killed by Commander Saturn's Toxicroak) I’d love to hear more about your Yellow adventure, though I figure you probably haven’t played too much lately, since you just moved this past weekend? Aw, even though you "flopped" at the national Championship, it's pretty awesome that you got to participate at that level at all! Is there any chance of ever getting your cards back from your brother, or has he already sold them/given them away?
    Ah no, you didn’t, no worries! Oh… Pikachu didn’t get Thunderbolt in Red/Blue? I’m so clueless about the moves from back then to be honest, I only knew that it gets Swift in some Gens so I was expecting it to get it in Yellow as well… But yeah, getting Thunderbolt instead of Switch is a fair-enough trade.

    Yes! It’s all over now. Well, basically, as I still need to clean up some chaos in the new apartment. Was very stressful and I’m still completely powerless & my sleep still didn’t get better, and I have lots of things to do this weekend and the next week, so I’m already happy when it’s getting a bit more quiet. At least the moving is done. Internet & TV aren’t working though so I hope this gets fixed as soon as possible. Two days were ok but I’m on the fifth day now and it’s getting exhausting
    Haha… well, thankfully there is a good snuggle buddy…

    Woah, what an amazing Team you have I’ve always loved Empoleon so it’s nice to hear this was your choice for the starter. Never played Rotom, Porygon2, Steelix or Magbrant, as there’s usually no one to trade them so I never picked them – how are they? Especially Magbrant and Porygon always seemed interesting to me. As for Mamoswine, I’ve tried it once and was pleasantly surprised, so I hope it also does its job for you Wait – so if one of your team member dies, you switch them out by another one? Poor Wromadam!
    You’re right about my Yellow adventure, I didn’t play much lately. I have six batches now, and everyone’s fully evolved, so there’s that.
    And no, my brother doesn’t have my collection anymore, at least that’s what he said when I asked him last year or so. But apart from the collection being awesome, I would have to get so many new cards anyway as there were so many new stuff appearing in the past few years, even some rules changed, so I would need to start from zero again…

    Agree! Switzerland already has the same rules for years now. At first I didn’t like it at all (also in cases when one of my favorite ones would smash) but in the end it’s a very good rule.

    Ah, okay! And what about “Rock N Roll”?

    His manager just said it’s expected to get a new album in 2020, so there’s definitely a break in 2019, which is wise considering how he’s everywhere lately.

    Which releases are you still looking forward to this year?

    Yeah… doesn’t make sense to me as there were quite a few fans in the US and they probably watching it now in a not so legal way…

    Quote Originally Posted by phoenix98

    That’s a good thing! I’ve started to do the same with some artists, like Janet for example. Never checked an album out from her but I was always interested to finally get to know her, so when she dropped “Unbreakable”, I checked it out. Same with Kylie when she released “Kiss Me Once” back in 2014.

    You're absolutely right! I ended up checking out "Fuego" after seeing it on Jake's chart before noticing your comment here, and I liked it right away! "We Got Love" made a pretty good first impression too, but those two are definitely my favorites of the entries that I've heard from this year.


    YAS! Actually I already saw your comment on Jake’s charts and was really happy that you checked it out and also liked it so much! As for “We Got Love”, it’s not a bad song but ‘only’ solid to me. Glad you’re liking another ESC entry as well though!

    Quote Originally Posted by phoenix98

I totally forgot to mention it when I was talking about waiting for Love Is Dead the other week, but I've been checking out Voicenotes since it dropped. There are a couple of duds/skippable moments for me ("LA Girls" and "Through It All"), but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed most of the tracks that I hadn't heard before (since none of the official singles had really wowed me). "Slow It Down," "Somebody Told Me," and "BOY" have been the biggest standouts so far (with "Empty Cups" not too far behind).
    Oh, nice to hear you also checked it out! It’s a shame how it seems to flop though, as it’s definitely the better of his two albums so far. I’m a bit surprised with you mentioning “LA Girls” as one of the more skippable moments, as it’s one of the songs I’m also enjoying quite a lot, but I’m glad you’re enjoying the album as a whole as well.

    • Glad to see Selena living up to her legacy here by entering your Top 2 I can hear the "It Ain't Me" comparisons that people have mentioned, but I actually prefer "Back To You" overall. It’s a fairly sad song, but it also has this somewhat soothing effect on me.
    • I definitely wasn't expecting such a strong rebound (all the way to a new peak) for "This Is America" Any particular reason? Not that I mind! I'm still not playing the song itself much, but considering we just had another lethal school shooting less than 2 week ago, its message is still as relevant as ever. :x
    • Hmmm...although they're not very far apart here, it looks like we've had different experiences with "Can't Dance" and "Let You Be Right," since I definitely prefer the latter. They're both pretty underwhelming, though (neither are as catchy as "No Excuses," and that wasn't exactly one of her all-time-best offerings anyway). Now I'm REALLY wondering what's going to happen with her next album, after an under-performing lead single and dual-release follow-ups that are totally flopping. :-?

    Yet another chart that stands on its own, Tansike!
    <3<3<3
    It’s an amazing song… Clean Bandit are doing REALLY well lately! Since “Rockabye”, they basically only released strong tunes and I’m so here for that. Really hoping this one also turns into a hit. It was basically love on first listen for me

    Hmm… it’s still difficult for me to rank “Back To You” compared to the rest of her discography, including “It Ain’t Me”. I think “Back To You” will have a longer effect on me than “It Ain’t Me” though, while that one made a much better first impression on me. It’s really impressive how Selena has turned into such a force when it comes to hits.

    Yes – I wanted my partner to see the video, so we watched it together and he ended up watching lots of reactions videos etc. sooo I heard the song all the time and it was stuck in my head, which is why it climbed a lot last week. Though #9 will definitely be its peak now. The video may end up as the best of the year, so strong!

    Oh, you have to wait for my latest chart to be posted I think both “Let You Be Right” and “Can’t Dance” are far from her best days, but they’re still very good and it really depends on my mood which one is the better one for me. Good question… no idea if they just drop the album and let it flop, or if it gets cancelled…

    Thanks so much

    Thanks - i saw that they got released but didn't check them out yet, have to do it asap as i'm quite enjoying the original one. Still a surprise to me how he flopped in the televoting...

    High debut for Blanche.
    However, for me ''Wrong Turn'' does not sound as polished and well-crafted as ''City Lights''

    Fantastic Top 3. Seeing "Solo" so high on Jake's chart prompted me to revisit it, and I've been loving it ever since. I love bops that have some emotional value to accompany their basic catchiness.

    Yay at the big re-entry for "Lost in Japan". I listened to Shawn's album last week, and though it was underwhelming, "Youth" and "Lost in Japan" stood out as the two big keepers for me (which was kinda bleh since I already heard them before the album dropped). "In My Blood" is growing on me, though.

    Yes! It’s all over now. Well, basically, as I still need to clean up some chaos in the new apartment. Was very stressful and I’m still completely powerless & my sleep still didn’t get better, and I have lots of things to do this weekend and the next week, so I’m already happy when it’s getting a bit more quiet. At least the moving is done. Internet & TV aren’t working though so I hope this gets fixed as soon as possible. Two days were ok but I’m on the fifth day now and it’s getting exhausting Haha… well, thankfully there is a good snuggle buddy…

    Woah, what an amazing Team you have I’ve always loved Empoleon so it’s nice to hear this was your choice for the starter. Never played Rotom, Porygon2, Steelix or Magbrant, as there’s usually no one to trade them so I never picked them – how are they? Especially Magbrant and Porygon always seemed interesting to me. As for Mamoswine, I’ve tried it once and was pleasantly surprised, so I hope it also does its job for you Wait – so if one of your team member dies, you switch them out by another one? Poor Wromadam!

    You’re right about my Yellow adventure, I didn’t play much lately. I have six batches now, and everyone’s fully evolved, so there’s that.
    And no, my brother doesn’t have my collection anymore, at least that’s what he said when I asked him last year or so. But apart from the collection being awesome, I would have to get so many new cards anyway as there were so many new stuff appearing in the past few years, even some rules changed, so I would need to start from zero again…
    Phew! Ha, yeah, I often forget just how limited most Pokémon's level-up movesets were in the original games. That particular example just stood out to me for being especially weird, since "Thunderbolt" was always treated like Pikachu's signature/most-used move in the anime, but you had to use a TM to teach it (until Yellow).

    Success! Glad to hear you're officially in the new place now, but I can understand how it's not really livable until you have Internet, TV, etc. :x Hopefully it's all working by the time you're reading this! Did you get everything done that you'd hope over the weekend? How does this new place compare to your last one?

    Thanks I didn't realize you were a fan of Empoleon, since I just remember you mentioning loving the Turtwig/Chelast family! Magmortar/Magbrant is a little slow-ish, but it has a pretty great Special Attack stat that it can put to good use with coverage moves like "Thunderbolt" and "Psychic." Porygon-Z is an interesting case, since it has lower defenses than Porygon2, but gains speed and power (so it can hit hard, but I need to be more careful about when I switch it into battle, since it can't take hits as well). It also has a lot of great coverage options (especially thanks to the TMs you can get over and over at the Game Corner/Schleiede Spielhalle). Since I'm doing this Platinum playthrough as a Nuzlocke, fainting = death Speaking of deaths, poor Snowplow the Mamoswine/Mamutel died in a battle against Barry right before the Elite Four, so I brought Volitant the Staraptor back onto my main team. I'd been using her earlier in the playthrough, but put her in the PC when I caught more interesting options.

    It's a pretty funny coincidence that while you're doing a playthrough in the original Yellow, "remakes" are announced in the form of Let's Go, Pikachu! and Eevee! BOOO @ your brother losing/giving away your entire competitive card collection :x Even if most of those old cards wouldn't be playable today, the nostalgia factor alone is pretty priceless. Bummer! I think he owes you something for being so careless with your childhood treasures...

    Interesting! I had no idea the Swiss charts worked like that too, so thanks for filling me in! So it's the exact same policy as the UK, where an artist can only have 3 songs (as the lead act) on each week's chart?

    Ha, well, that one I remember more for its video Wasn't there a random sharkbear or something, and her making out with some woman? Now that I think about it, it feels like some of Katy's Witness videos in the sense of trying REALLY hard to go viral. The song itself was alright, though.

    Sweet, that sounds like a sensible plan to me! He can always do some writing for other artists in the meantime too.

    Exactly! It's just like those pointless and frustrating region-locked music videos on YouTube. :x

    Yeah :-? He took a risk by pushing back the album after "Attention" blew up (probably because he/his team thought they could score another smash hit or two before releasing it?), and that ultimately backfired, it seems. Granted, Voicenotes still entered in the US and UK Top 5, but it almost certainly would've done better back in slow January, when "Attention" was fresher in people's minds. There's a lot of single-worthy stuff left on the album, so hopefully whatever he picks next can out-perform "Done For Me."

Though #9 will definitely be its peak now. The video may end up as the best of the year, so strong!
    Ah, so "This Is America" benefitted from the "getting-your-partner-into-it-too" effect? Right on! The video definitely has messages worth spreading.

    • Awesome that "Solo" managed to hold onto the top spot The excitement of CHVRCHES's new album over-shadowed it for me last week, but it might rebound on my next chart...
    • Looks like "Youth" has emerged as your clear favorite from Shawn Mendes? The three singles have all been alright for me, but not quite enough to make me super excited for his album. If June ends up having some slow weeks, I might check it out. It's off to a pretty strong start on your album chart, so would you say there's a lot to discover beyond those three tracks?
    • This entire Top 5 is pretty solid! I either like or love the whole bunch.
    • Glad to see "Let You Be Right" jump ahead of "Can't Dance." ;)
    • Aw, "only" No. 9 for Love Is Dead hurts my heart a bit - but at least CHVRCHES got their first-ever entry, and first-ever Top 10 album!

    Yet another chart that's in a class of its own, Tansike!

    However, for me ''Wrong Turn'' does not sound as polished and well-crafted as ''City Lights''
    Completely agree with you. I like it, but it's not as good as "City Lights". But i like that she didn't release something generic.

    Yay at the big re-entry for "Lost in Japan". I listened to Shawn's album last week, and though it was underwhelming, "Youth" and "Lost in Japan" stood out as the two big keepers for me (which was kinda bleh since I already heard them before the album dropped). "In My Blood" is growing on me, though.

    ...
    Very happy to hear you're enjoying the Top3 that much! Also nice to hear you got back into "Solo"... i already saw that it was your last weeks #1 on the UKMixParade and i loved that! I think Clean Bandit definitely delivered with that one and i hope this also becomes a hit for them and Demi.

    I didn't mind "Lost In Japan" before the album came out, so that one was a big grower for me during the album release week. Glad to hear "Youth" is a keeper for you as it's definitely the highlight of "Shawn Mendes", though i have to say i'm absolutely positively surprised by the whole album. Did you already check out his previous releases? I think this new one is his best by far

    Thanks I didn't realize you were a fan of Empoleon, since I just remember you mentioning loving the Turtwig/Chelast family! Magmortar/Magbrant is a little slow-ish, but it has a pretty great Special Attack stat that it can put to good use with coverage moves like "Thunderbolt" and "Psychic." Porygon-Z is an interesting case, since it has lower defenses than Porygon2, but gains speed and power (so it can hit hard, but I need to be more careful about when I switch it into battle, since it can't take hits as well). It also has a lot of great coverage options (especially thanks to the TMs you can get over and over at the Game Corner/Schleiede Spielhalle). Since I'm doing this Platinum playthrough as a Nuzlocke, fainting = death Speaking of deaths, poor Snowplow the Mamoswine/Mamutel died in a battle against Barry right before the Elite Four, so I brought Volitant the Staraptor back onto my main team. I'd been using her earlier in the playthrough, but put her in the PC when I caught more interesting options.

    It's a pretty funny coincidence that while you're doing a playthrough in the original Yellow, "remakes" are announced in the form of Let's Go, Pikachu! and Eevee! BOOO @ your brother losing/giving away your entire competitive card collection :x Even if most of those old cards wouldn't be playable today, the nostalgia factor alone is pretty priceless. Bummer! I think he owes you something for being so careless with your childhood treasures...
    Oh yeah, this makes it even more weird then! I mean, isn’t Thunderbolt even like Pikachu’s signature move?

    No, it’s still not working, but it will (or should) get fixed later today. So, a week and a half without internet & TV No, there’s still a lot to do and it will take some time until I feel like home there, so let’s see how this will turn out with time. My new place is smaller than the last one, but it's at a much better place as it has much more sun and the previous one was in the ground floor, which turned out to be a no-go for me. It also costs a bit less (still enough though…). Last but not least, I only have around 15 minutes from my new place to work, and around 10-15 minutes to my partner’s place, while previously I had 30 minutes from my place to work in the morning, and in the evening sometimes even an hour or more due to traffic.

    I’m not sure if I ever mentioned that but penguins used to be my favorite animal during my childhood, so while I loved Turtwig’s family, I also loved Empoleon. Once we did a ranking with the starters and I did rank this Generation quite high I think, as it’s ALWAYS very difficult to pick between these two for me. I think it’s even the Gen where it’s the most difficult choice to pick the starter for me.
    Sounds interesting for Magmortar/Porygon-Z. As I said, I was always interested into these two but never came around playing with them, so it’s nice to hear they got into your Team. Aaaah… I didn’t realize fainting = death when you’re doing a playthrough as a Nuzlocke Oh no, poor Snowplow!! I hope Volitant does well in your team though.

    True! What do you think of Let’s Go? I think it sounds really interesting and I’m actually really looking forward to it, even though I was hoping to get a ‘normal’ Pokémon game this year as well. Ah well… It’s not the only childhood treasure I lost. When I moved out for the first time nearly eight years ago to live with my ex partner, I have no idea what I was thinking cause there were quite a few stuff I left ‘at home’ and which is gone now. Something else would be tons of comics I drew when I was a child – I was a very good drawer back then! I still have some of them in my mind, especially some stories, and sometimes I really regret that I didn’t keep them. I even made a whole series called ‘The DigiPoké Team’ which was a mash-up of Pokémon, Digimon and Case Closed. Pokémon and Digimon were like humans in that series and there was a group (The DigiPoké Team) which had to solve murder cases and stuff like this. As a child it was way easier to draw Pokémon and Digimon instead of humans which is why I mixed up these three things I drew at least 40 different ‘episodes’…

    Yes, it’s the same – that’s also why “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran debuted at #7, but left the Top100 completely the week afterwards as “Galway Girl” had more sales and debuted at #10. There are probably other examples but this is the best one which was affected by these rules I think. Also, there’s an exception in Switzerland, which is when an artist dies (like Avicii recently or back then Michael Jackson) this artist is allowed to have more than three entries for a period of time.

    Yeah I think so, don’t really remember it that exactly to be honest But yeah, it definitely was meant to go viral (same as “Hello Kitty”) but it didn’t really work out for her.

    Exactly! I’m so here for new Ed in 2020 after a year (and a half?) break. It would also makes sense as he would have released an album all three years (2011, 2014, 2017 and 2020).

    Ah, Grimes is something I’m really looking forward to as well! Her last album was brilliant!
    I’m probably not too up-to-date with some of the most recent announcements, but the ones I’m currently looking forward to are Bebe Rexha’s “Expectations”, which drops later this month, Ariana’s “Sweetener” obviously, Carrie Underwood’s “Cry Pretty” in September, a new live album by Tarja and an upcoming, yet untitled (and with an unknown release date) album by my second most favorite band ever, Within Temptation. Also, my absolute fave (Kerli) is likely to finally release something this year, but I’m waiting for five years now so I’m not expecting too much anymore at this point

    Well, I think “Attention” wasn’t even the problem. I mean, “Attention” came out and was a hit months before they even announced the album, so I really think “Voicenotes” wasn’t ready at that time and they tried to see if Charlie still gets a hit or not with something following his debut album, and I think they were a bit surprised how big “Attention” was. Then “How Long” came and I think during that time they also announced the album, though “How Long” didn’t take off the way they thought it could, so they delayed the album and “Done For Me” did even worse… speaking of which, that one still is my highlight of “Voicenotes”. A shame how it wasn’t a hit…

    Yet another chart that's in a class of its own, Tansike!
    Glad you’re liking its ongoing success here. Kinda sad it already fell a bit on your charts, as Akini had it as his #1 last week and it would have been so awesome to have us four (Jake, Akini, you & me) having the same #1
    But you were really looking forward to the new album by CHVRCHES so it’s no big surprise that they overshadowed “Solo”.

    Yep, definitely! I’d even go that far and say it’s my most favorite song ever by Shawn. I think there really is and I was (and still am) so positively surprised, as I never saw him as an artist I would look forward to to hear new music. But “Shawn Mendes” has some awesome tunes – “Nervous”, “Like To Be You”, “Fallin’ All For You”, “Particular Taste”, “Queen” and “Mutual” are all single-worthy IMO.

    That’s amazing! Will be interesting to see if this will stay the same this week

    It’s somehow funny, as just in the moment when you said you’re enjoying “Let You Be Right” more than “Can’t Dance”, it also started to become my fave of the two. I still enjoy “Can’t Dance” as well though. They both weren’t instant hits for me like “No Excuses”, but they most likely will show a much longer effect…

    Glad you can see it from a positive side as well! #9 ain’t the best debut but it’s also not the worst considering they never did it so far. I also can already reveal that it won’t fall a lot this week at least, like some other #9 debuts. It’s a very good album, but last week was competitive.

    Thank you

    glad to see Solo at #1. not my favorite from them but still a great pop song

    happy NTLTC is steady too. surprised This Is America made your top 10 I love it but not as much as Redbone, which definitely deserved better

    ^ very glad to hear you're enjoying "Solo" as well! I agree though that this isn't their best.

    "This Is America" definitely benefitted a lot from its awesome video. The song is also really good, despite me being usually not the biggest fan of that genre.

    No, it’s still not working, but it will (or should) get fixed later today. So, a week and a half without internet & TV No, there’s still a lot to do and it will take some time until I feel like home there, so let’s see how this will turn out with time. My new place is smaller than the last one, but it's at a much better place as it has much more sun and the previous one was in the ground floor, which turned out to be a no-go for me. It also costs a bit less (still enough though…). Last but not least, I only have around 15 minutes from my new place to work, and around 10-15 minutes to my partner’s place, while previously I had 30 minutes from my place to work in the morning, and in the evening sometimes even an hour or more due to traffic.

    I’m not sure if I ever mentioned that but penguins used to be my favorite animal during my childhood, so while I loved Turtwig’s family, I also loved Empoleon. Once we did a ranking with the starters and I did rank this Generation quite high I think, as it’s ALWAYS very difficult to pick between these two for me. I think it’s even the Gen where it’s the most difficult choice to pick the starter for me.
    Sounds interesting for Magmortar/Porygon-Z. As I said, I was always interested into these two but never came around playing with them, so it’s nice to hear they got into your Team. Aaaah… I didn’t realize fainting = death when you’re doing a playthrough as a Nuzlocke Oh no, poor Snowplow!! I hope Volitant does well in your team though.

    True! What do you think of Let’s Go? I think it sounds really interesting and I’m actually really looking forward to it, even though I was hoping to get a ‘normal’ Pokémon game this year as well. Ah well… It’s not the only childhood treasure I lost. When I moved out for the first time nearly eight years ago to live with my ex partner, I have no idea what I was thinking cause there were quite a few stuff I left ‘at home’ and which is gone now. Something else would be tons of comics I drew when I was a child – I was a very good drawer back then! I still have some of them in my mind, especially some stories, and sometimes I really regret that I didn’t keep them. I even made a whole series called ‘The DigiPoké Team’ which was a mash-up of Pokémon, Digimon and Case Closed. Pokémon and Digimon were like humans in that series and there was a group (The DigiPoké Team) which had to solve murder cases and stuff like this. As a child it was way easier to draw Pokémon and Digimon instead of humans which is why I mixed up these three things I drew at least 40 different ‘episodes’…
    Right? I mean, it seemed to be until "Volt Tackle" came along, anyway. After consulting Bulbapedia, it looks like nobody could learn "Thunderbolt" by level-up in Red & Blue (then only Pikachu could in Yellow).

    UGH @ Internet and TV access taking that long! I'd be losing my sh*t after more than a week, for sure :x It sounds like this new place is an upgrade in every way except size? That's awesome! How'd you find it? Ha, yeah, I can imagine living on the ground floor being pretty awful (especially if it was on a busy street with people constantly walking by/right outside). Luckily, I haven't had any units above mine since my last apartment in college. A less stressful commute is such a huge plus too! With your partner even closer than before, you'll have even more opportunities for... ;) You should work some of that into one of his group's music videos, actually... #breaktheinternet

    Aw, I didn't know you were ever that into penguins, but that's adorable! I just remember you mentioning monkeys before Thankfully, my team made it through the Elite Four and Cynthia without any more deaths. Phew! As much as I hate to say this about a fallen teammate, I think Snowplow's passing was somewhat of a blessing in disguise, since Volitant helped out quite a bit in those final battles Have things calmed down enough with the whole move/transition to give you a chance to pick up Yellow again? Granted, I guess you could just wait for Let's Go! now...

    Speaking of - I'll miss wild Pokémon battles, but the Let's Go! games do look like an interesting way to combine some GO features with the usual main-series-type adventure, so I'll definitely still check them out. I skipped FireRed & LeafGreen, so it'll be my first time playing a Gen I remake, and Kanto does look pretty nice in the trailer. I just hope these GO-based gameplay changes aren’t included in next year’s proper core series Switch game. Aw, so all 40 episodes that you drew are gone for good? Damn, that's tragic...especially since there's no way to replace something personal and unique like those They sound so creative, I totally would've read them if you could've uploaded them online! Do you still draw at all? Has your partner posed nude for you yet? That'd be the best way for you to practice drawing humans...

Also, there’s an exception in Switzerland, which is when an artist dies (like Avicii recently or back then Michael Jackson) this artist is allowed to have more than three entries for a period of time.
    Ah, that's an exception that I totally don't mind, though. Seeing all those hits re-enter is a great/touching way to recognize their impact and legacy. It's like a final farewell to their chart presence too.

    I’m probably not too up-to-date with some of the most recent announcements, but the ones I’m currently looking forward to are Bebe Rexha’s “Expectations”, which drops later this month, Ariana’s “Sweetener” obviously, Carrie Underwood’s “Cry Pretty” in September, a new live album by Tarja and an upcoming, yet untitled (and with an unknown release date) album by my second most favorite band ever, Within Temptation. Also, my absolute fave (Kerli) is likely to finally release something this year, but I’m waiting for five years now so I’m not expecting too much anymore at this point
    Agreed! Granted, it's the only album of hers that I've actually heard in full I briefly checked out some of her older singles after falling in love with Art Angels, and they definitely didn't have the same quirky-but-still-poppy appeal, so hopefully she keeps some of the same Art Angels style/sounds for her next project.

    I'd be open to checking out Expectations if it makes a good impression on you. Same goes for Kerli's next album, actually, so **fingers crossed** that one actually happens this year!

I mean, “Attention” came out and was a hit months before they even announced the album, so I really think “Voicenotes” wasn’t ready at that time and they tried to see if Charlie still gets a hit or not with something following his debut album, and I think they were a bit surprised how big “Attention” was. Then “How Long” came and I think during that time they also announced the album, though “How Long” didn’t take off the way they thought it could, so they delayed the album and “Done For Me” did even worse… speaking of which, that one still is my highlight of “Voicenotes”. A shame how it wasn’t a hit…
    Ah, I might've gotten the whole timeline blurred in my head. "Done For Me" hasn't clicked with me quite as much as you, but I'm still surprised by how poorly it's done :-? He abruptly went from scoring his biggest hit yet (besides "See You Again") to seriously struggling. People/listeners are so fickle sometimes... :x

    Sorry for the flop timing on my part but all four of us sending the same song to No. 1 (even at slightly different times) is still pretty incredible! I've no idea when that last happened. I'm pretty sure it was "No Tears Left To Cry" for you, Jake, and me - but I know that one missed out on Akini's chart.

I think there really is and I was (and still am) so positively surprised, as I never saw him as an artist I would look forward to to hear new music. But “Shawn Mendes” has some awesome tunes – “Nervous”, “Like To Be You”, “Fallin’ All For You”, “Particular Taste”, “Queen” and “Mutual” are all single-worthy IMO.
    Ooh, that's high praise indeed! Well, since I don't think anything else noteworthy is dropping this Friday (Christina's singles haven't really sold me, and I've never been as into her as a lot of the other pop ladies anyway), I might dive into Shawn Mendes later this week...

    If only I could influence you like that more often. ;)

    • I'm not totally sold on "Love To Hate" on first listen, but DAMN does Tarja sound flawless live If the video hadn't made it so obvious that it was a live recording, I definitely would've thought those were studio vocals.
    • "5 In The Morning" has been a letdown for me after REALLY loving some of Pop 2. :(
    • "Colour" struck me as pretty bland/forgettable at first, but I've been coming back to it more than I expected! It's still far from one of my favorites from Hailee, but it's not a total throwaway either!
    • Nice to see "Let You Be Right" pulling well ahead of "Can't Dance" now.
    • Although I don't think Cardi adds much to "Girls Like You," the release of this new version definitely re-kindled my interest in the original.
    • A Top 20 debut for Kylie too "Stop Me From Falling" never made it that high, right?

    Yet another chart that's impossible to hate, Tansike!

    True! Oh wow, so basically only one Pokémon was able to get Thunderbolt in Red/Blue (through TM) – that’s quite shocking considering how often Ash used it in the Anime, which made that move quite popular!

    Ha, I actually lost my sh*t due to having no internet & TV! But at least I had time to unpack all the stuff, plus I wasn’t at my place the whole time, I still was at my partners place every now and then. But it really got exhausting… like, you only realize how much you rely on these stuff when you’re not able to use it. Anyways, yes, an upgrade in every way except size. Though I think that’s completely okay. Well, there’s something called ‘homegate’ which is a website where you can find apartments to rent or buy and I found that one through that page. Haha that link / song!

    Yeah, monkeys and penguins! As a child it was all about penguins, I even had several dolls, but as an adult I started to ‘like’ monkeys as well. Congrats on beating the Elite Four and Cynthia Also nice to hear Volitant was such a good help for you. No, unfortunately I didn’t play ever since I moved. But I’m having my console ready to play all the time and I’m also taking it with me when I go to my partner, but somehow it always ends up with not playing it
    Hmm well, so far I don’t really know what to expect from Let’s Go!, but I’m excited to try it out for sure.

    Oh, you skipped FireRed / LeafGreen? So that’ll be kinda awesome to play Gen 1 with a new design for the first time! I still have to read a bit more into the new game as I don’t really know how this will work out and I only saw like half of the trailer so far, but I just hope it don’t rely too much on GO. And as you say, I also hope they won’t include the GO-based gameplay into the next games. I’d love to get one of the core series games for the Switch.
    Yes, they’re gone for good. And even some more stuff. But it is what it is. No, I stopped drawing like 11-12 years ago and never started again since then, so most of my ‘talent’ when it comes to drawing is gone, sadly. Hahaha

    Definitely! It would be nice to see other countries having the same or a similar rule.

    Well, it’s the same for me Despite loving “Art Angels” so much, I still never checked out some of her previous material. Well, I heard like two songs from other albums but they didn’t really impress me, so it’s been the same with me. I really cross my fingers that “Art Angels” wasn’t just a lucky shot for us.

    “Expectations” already comes out in a week and a half so I can tell you about that one soon. As for Kerli, thanks, I really hope something comes out as soon as possible. The later it comes out the less chance she’ll have to get a nice spot on my Year-End Charts, and someone like her deserves a high spot only based on being my fave alone!

    True. “Attention” becoming such a hit definitely was a surprise and it’s even more shocking how the follow-ups and the album flopped. A big hit doesn’t guarantee a thing these days. Years ago it was still possible to score a successful album based on one hit alone.

    Yep, it is incredible. And yeah, Akini wasn’t that impressed with “No Tears Left To Cry”, but Jake, you and me already shared the same #1 two times this year now. Let’s see if we will share the same #1 again when Ari releases her next song

    Sounds amazing! It’s definitely one of the better pop releases this year so far, so I’d really recommend it to you and am excited to hear what you will think about it

    • "5 In The Morning" has been a letdown for me after REALLY loving some of Pop 2. :(
    • "Colour" struck me as pretty bland/forgettable at first, but I've been coming back to it more than I expected! It's still far from one of my favorites from Hailee, but it's not a total throwaway either!
    • Nice to see "Let You Be Right" pulling well ahead of "Can't Dance" now.
    • Although I don't think Cardi adds much to "Girls Like You," the release of this new version definitely re-kindled my interest in the original.
    • A Top 20 debut for Kylie too "Stop Me From Falling" never made it that high, right?

    Yet another chart that's impossible to hate, Tansike!
    Thanks a lot for checking out “Love To Hate”!
    I’m not that much surprised to hear you’re not that impressed by the song itself, but I love to hear that about her voice! She’s really an incredible live singer. I saw her live once (not a rock concert, but a Christmas concert with Christmas carols and some originals) and her voice was STUNNING.

    Awww. I still remember how Charli slayed your charts so I was really looking forward to hear your thoughts on “5 In The Morning”, also because I’m liking that new song sooo much. Is there a chance this may grow on you? It could become my favorite Charli song ever

    Nice to hear you’re enjoying “Colour” as well! I agree with you though that it’s not Hailee’s best, but somehow it’s still typical her… at least it’s a nice addition to her discography.

    :cool:

    Was “Girls Like You” already one of your favorites of the album before that single release? I think we shared our faves from the album a while ago but don’t really remember it. For me it wasn’t, but this whole release (remix + video) really worked.

    You’re right! The chartrun for SMFF was 30-Out-RE 30-Out

    Thanks a lot

    4 (3) Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry *G*
    Great to see NTLTC get a gold cert . Hopefully she follows this up with another banger.

    16 (9) Shawn Mendes – Lost In Japan
    I don't mind Shawn. But I had a lot of difficulty enjoying this song tbh. It feels like that something is missing :(

    18 (NEW) Kylie Minogue – Golden
    Yay!!! A decent Kylie debut . Since SMFF was paid dust nnnnnnnnnnn

    37 (22) Saara Aalto – Monsters *P*
    Took me a while to realize Kylie's back up singer was in Eurovision hahahah. So I only just discovered this song, and I enjoy it!

    The song took ages to grow on me too and i can see what you mean. He's doing some nice pop music but it's still far from being better-than-average, kinda...

    I thought SMFF was a bit too generic. The chorus was just weak But "Golden" is great!

    Wait, what?! Saara is/was Kylie's back up singer? Woah, i had no idea! Glad to hear you enjoy it, it's a great dance pop track

    So amazing to hear this!
    As for Namika, i think she's the current #1 on Erotica's Chart. Didn't expect her to get another hit but i'm glad she did, "Je ne parle pas français" is definitely a very catchy, well-made track.

But it really got exhausting… like, you only realize how much you rely on these stuff when you’re not able to use it. Anyways, yes, an upgrade in every way except size. Though I think that’s completely okay. Well, there’s something called ‘homegate’ which is a website where you can find apartments to rent or buy and I found that one through that page. Haha that link / song!

    Yeah, monkeys and penguins! As a child it was all about penguins, I even had several dolls, but as an adult I started to ‘like’ monkeys as well. Congrats on beating the Elite Four and Cynthia Also nice to hear Volitant was such a good help for you. No, unfortunately I didn’t play ever since I moved. But I’m having my console ready to play all the time and I’m also taking it with me when I go to my partner, but somehow it always ends up with not playing it
    Hmm well, so far I don’t really know what to expect from Let’s Go!, but I’m excited to try it out for sure.

    Oh, you skipped FireRed / LeafGreen? So that’ll be kinda awesome to play Gen 1 with a new design for the first time! I still have to read a bit more into the new game as I don’t really know how this will work out and I only saw like half of the trailer so far, but I just hope it don’t rely too much on GO. And as you say, I also hope they won’t include the GO-based gameplay into the next games. I’d love to get one of the core series games for the Switch.
    **Hug** No one could blame you for that It's annoying enough to not be able to use it for free/fun-time, but Internet access is basically essential for so many parts of life today: getting work (or school) stuff done, staying in touch with friends/family, etc. Losing it cuts you off from a LOT, so I'm glad that you're officially back in the 21st century now! ;)

    Aw, did all those penguin dolls face the same fate as your Yu-Gi-Oh collection and DigiPoké Team drawings? Ha, I can probably guess what ends up happening instead of Yellow whenever you go to your partner's place ;) ;) ;) I'll try not to nag you by asking every week, but let me know if/when you start playing Yellow again! You were getting pretty close to the end (or at least past the halfway point...)

    Yeah, I'm definitely excited to explore a much better-looking Kanto, and see what tweaks they made to the region (and story) for Let's Go. From what's been revealed so far, the new rival's quite different from Blue/Gary back in the day, so I wonder if/how other characters might change too. I re-played that first Let's Go trailer a ton of times, constantly pausing it to catch as much as possible There was some gameplay footage shown at E3 last week too (mostly Viridian Forest/Vertania Wald and a little of Pewter/Marmoria City).

    “Expectations” already comes out in a week and a half so I can tell you about that one soon. As for Kerli, thanks, I really hope something comes out as soon as possible. The later it comes out the less chance she’ll have to get a nice spot on my Year-End Charts, and someone like her deserves a high spot only based on being my fave alone!
    **Fingers crossed** for sure! Art Angels was one of my favorite albums/most-pleasant-surprises of the past few years, so it'd be a HUGE bummer if her next album does nothing for me. :x

    Speaking of Expectations, it looks like you're been enjoying "I'm A Mess"?

    I noticed on its Wikipedia page that Shawn Mendes seemed to go over pretty well with critics (especially for a mainstream pop album from a 19-year-old who got famous on Vine)...but I wasn't really feeling the album after my first listen all the way through I'll still give it another try or two, and I'm not TOO shocked that it wasn't love-at-first-listen, after the singles/preview tracks didn't really click with me. Since it's such a slow album, I might need to be in a certain mood/state of mind to want to hear it (kind of like Miley's Younger Now, which I think you also loved a lot more than I did overall).

    NoOoOo, of course not! <3

    I'd just love to see a little more synchronicity between us sometimes, but I'd never want our charts to be completely identical. Then there wouldn't be any new discoveries, or interesting debates/disagreements (like your inability to properly appreciate "Alone" though it looks like the GP is with you on that one. RIP).

    Ah, so you've only gotten a chance to see Tarja once? Granted, that's still more than I've seen a lot of my faves in concert but you seem to go to shows pretty often. Does she not tour Switzerland much?

    Woah! I don't think I'll be sharing your enthusiasm anytime soon I re-visited Pop 2 last week, and "Backseat," "Unlock It," "Track 10," and "Out Of My Head" still sound SO much better to me Well, pretty much all of Pop 2 does But I'm still glad to see anything by her doing well on your chart!

    Yeah, it's hard to say exactly why, but it really does feel like Hailee was the perfect pick to feature on that track. Maybe she helped write it?

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike

    Yeah...well, not on the same level as "What Lovers Do," which had me pretty obsessed...but "Girls Like You" has always been among the better half of Red Pill Blues for me. It was one of the highest-debuting songs from that album on my first chart after it came out (only below "Wait" and "Who I Am").

    • Looks like Lindsey's really getting her "featuring" on lately! I guess she's doing a co-headlining tour with Evanescence? Are they coming anywhere near you? Not too surprisingly, the Evanescence collabo is my favorite of these two, since it has (gorgeous) vocals, and I really loved some of Evanescence's earlier singles.
    • How was Demi's concert? It hurts my heart a little to see that "Give Your Heart A Break" 'only' peaked at No. 9 (and spent a single week inside your Top 10) :( That was definitely her "breakthrough" hit with me, and is still her most-Scrobbled song in my library (by far).
    • Although "Bitches" has never been one of my favorites from Blue Lips, and this new version doesn't really change that, it's pretty wild/awesome that it got another single after all this time, since "Disco Tits" came out waaayyy back in September I wonder if that's a record for the longest gap between a lead and follow-up single...

    Yet another chart that has way more "highs" than "lows," Tansike!

    Hey Paul – first, let me thank you so much for keep on coming by & taking the time to reply every week. It happens that I always look forward to your comment every week and starting from this week on I will catch up with things again, so I’ll follow your charts closer again (well, I already followed it, but never left a comment, but this will change now)
    Also, I LOVE (!!!) your new avatar so much!

    Aw, did all those penguin dolls face the same fate as your Yu-Gi-Oh collection and DigiPoké Team drawings? Ha, I can probably guess what ends up happening instead of Yellow whenever you go to your partner's place ;) ;) ;) I'll try not to nag you by asking every week, but let me know if/when you start playing Yellow again! You were getting pretty close to the end (or at least past the halfway point...)

    Yeah, I'm definitely excited to explore a much better-looking Kanto, and see what tweaks they made to the region (and story) for Let's Go. From what's been revealed so far, the new rival's quite different from Blue/Gary back in the day, so I wonder if/how other characters might change too. I re-played that first Let's Go trailer a ton of times, constantly pausing it to catch as much as possible There was some gameplay footage shown at E3 last week too (mostly Viridian Forest/Vertania Wald and a little of Pewter/Marmoria City).
    Thank you! True. It’s also important to pay the bills these days (through electronic banking), but I just did that at work!

    No, I still have them… but I don’t know for how long, cause they’re just taking space away to be honest, and my memories to them aren’t as important as the ones to my comics or card collection. So I definitely made a wrong decision in what I kept and what I gave away. Haha, I didn’t even mean that, it’s just that we do some other stuff, watch a movie together or whatever, instead of me playing Pokémon. Sometimes he’s playing a game and I simply watch him play that game instead of playing one by myself. Aw, well, I’m okay with you asking this every week, unfortunately it’s still the same as of now. I already was sooo near to play again yesterday. Hopefully today. Somehow I miss it, but somehow it’s still not as important as some other stuff to me at the moment. Also, I have to admit that I’ve started to get interested in playing one of the newer ones again instead of Yellow… so let’s see how I’ll decide in the end.

    Sounds interesting! Since they released Red/Blue on the Virtual Console not too long ago, it makes sense for them do change some stuff from the original series. Have you spotted something else worth a mention by watching that trailer several times?

    Speaking of Expectations, it looks like you're been enjoying "I'm A Mess"?
    Same!

    Yes, I enjoy it a lot and I’m really looking forward to hear the full thing on Friday <3

Since it's such a slow album, I might need to be in a certain mood/state of mind to want to hear it (kind of like Miley's Younger Now, which I think you also loved a lot more than I did overall).
    After I read that I just checked it by myself and woah, I didn’t expect this album to be that well received by critics – but I’m loving it! Definitely a case of a ‘teenage’ star delivering something really good and for everyone, not just young girls. Anyways, it’s nice to hear you checked the album out now, but kinda sad that it left you pretty cold, so I really hope some tracks will grow on you. It’s interesting how you say it’s a slow album, as it didn’t make such an impression on me. “Nervous”, “Particular Taste”, “Queen” and “Mutual” are all more uptempo and belong to my faves, but also some slower songs like “Like To Be You” or “Fallin’ All In You” are really good. Will be interesting to see how things turn out after a few more spins
    Side note: He became famous through Vine? I had no idea!

    I'd just love to see a little more synchronicity between us sometimes, but I'd never want our charts to be completely identical. Then there wouldn't be any new discoveries, or interesting debates/disagreements (like your inability to properly appreciate "Alone" though it looks like the GP is with you on that one. RIP).
    I was just kidding, don’t worry!

    I get what you mean and fully agree on that. It’s nice to have some similarities, but it’s also nice to have some stuff to discover. As for “Alone”, yes, sadly, but…. the “Strangers” video drops tomorrow!!

    Yes. You know, I only started attending concerts in 2012 and didn’t visit many back then (two in 2012, one in 2013, three in 2014), and I saw Tarja live in December 2015 on a Christmas tour. Her last proper rock album came out in 2016 and unfortunately I didn’t go to her concert back then. The thing is, until last Autumn, I never attended a concert where you couldn’t get seating tickets, as I used to have a chronic iron deficiency, so I never wanted to try it out as I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to stand there between all the people for so long, and would need to sit down which wouldn’t be possible if you’re in the middle of a crowd, and Tarja isn’t big enough to visit venues with seating places. So I ‘skipped’ her, except the Christmas concert, as that one was only seated and the venue was a theater (for obvious reasons, I think). But now I know that standing for two hours or so is actually possible, and she’ll release a new rock album in 2019, so I will most likely go and see her on her next tour, as she usually always visits Switzerland on her tour (it’s still one of her most successful countries besides Germany, Finland and part of South America).

    Aw Okay, now that I finally enjoy a Charli song so much, maybe it’s time for me to re-visit “Pop 2” as well? Maybe I’ll take a listen later today to see what I think about it these days…

    Strangely I found nothing about writing credits for “Colour”. But yeah, it may be the case that Hailee was a co-writer as well. Even though she hasn’t even released a full-length album and just a handful of singles, she still already found her own style, which is cool.

    Ah right. So it must be quite cool to get this song as a single now. I think they also promoted “Wait” in the US, but it got overlooked everywhere else, right? So the single choices are actually good for you

    Well to be honest with you, SMFF turned out to be a lowlight of the album for me. On first listen I enjoyed it, but I realized how basic and generic it actually is after more spins

    Haha, true! It’s funny how the video for “Hi-Lo” came out in the same week as another song which featured her. Yes, she’s doing a co-headlining tour with Evanescence, but unfortunately it’s just for the US so far. Evanescence already toured Europe earlier this year and announced this co-headlining tour shortly before I saw them. Seeing both of them live together would be brilliant, so fingers crossed they’re expanding the tour with European dates as well.

    Demi’s concert was much better than expected! She slayed vocally, and her performances were so much better as well. I didn’t know she’s such a good performer! Also, the staging was cool, the setlist was good as well – I only missed “Stone Cold”, “Skyscraper”, “Really Don’t Care” and “Kingdom Come” but understand why she didn’t perform them. As for GYHAB… its chart performance looks worse than it is. In fact, with the upcoming charts from Thursday already included (it’s already pretty much done as I’ll be busy tomorrow), it’s tied with another song as her fourth most successful song on my charts! Being in the Top20 for so long with just a #9 peak is actually quite a rare feat.

    Wait – there never was another single of “Blue Lips”? Okay, that’s really interesting!

    Thank you so much
