    Female & also some Male vocals
    Ah thanks! I'm always here for female-fronted bands and don't mind if there are some male vocals too. I just have my problems if they're just male-fronted

    Oh, the latter happened to me a few times already But in the end, my English skills still aren’t the best so I’m sure there are still some mistakes in my posts, but more like phrasing mistakes and not spelling mistakes.

    Of height, of course! Or waistline, maybe. Nothing else, though! Ha, I've always heard 13 associated with bad luck, but I like the idea of you doing something different than the usual 10th, 15th, 20th anniversary.
    Yes, I still can’t believe she’s 26! She’s more like… forever 21!
    Hmm… I never told you how old he is?! So… what would you guess?
    Spoiler!


    Ah good. I already thought you mean something else…
    Well isn’t it like 50/50… half of the persons I know say ‘13’ is a bad luck number, the other half says it’s a lucky number. My birthday has a ‘13’ in it, it was a Friday the 13th and the time I was born has a 13 as well, so I have to look at it as a lucky number

    Yes, that’s why I was surprised when you said it peaked that high in the US. I thought it was quite an underperformance everywhere. I also remembered it that way, as it’s one of my most favorite songs ever by them and I still remember how disappointed I was by its charts performance

    Damn, it's like he has a photographic memory for dance steps! I'm sure you can still impress him with some moves of your own, though ;) Just maybe not on the dancefloor...
    That’s an interesting thought. Knowing how strict some contracts are for Asian artists, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s actually really the way you say (95% label, the rest for the band). But even that way I kinda feel like they’re making so much money at the moment they should definitely be able to live with that money for the rest of their lives – if they don’t throw it out of the window.

    Yep, it’s incredible! His band had a performance on Saturday and I was there too, and on one song they had a little dance routine and it was fun to see how good he’s at dancing & singing while the others struggled a little bit by combining both
    Hmmm…. no comment…. yes
    I think we already talked about this in the past though I’m not really sure, so I’m just asking: Are you a good dancer?

    You could just walk by at my place where I live, that’s much less risky than at my office place

    Yeah, there was an article on Billboard stating it’s the second single. Maybe it was wrong though… but that would make sense why “Youth” and “Nervous” weren’t really promoted, which is a shame, as they are both good. “Lost In Japan” is good too, but I’m not really a fan of this new remix… What do you think?

    Oh – you googled the lyrics?

    <3


    I finally checked it out. It’s not bad! As expected, I’m not blown away, but I also have to admit I thought it’s weaker, so it definitely surpassed my expectations

    Yes, I saw that too – and I’m so happy about that! She’s smashing in the UK. Will be exciting to see how the album will do, her debut ‘only’ went Platinum there (it’s at around 360k which isn’t that outstanding for the 2012 standards). From what I remember, none of her songs really took off in the US, right? That’s a shame, especially for the brilliant “Anywhere” :(

    Quote Originally Posted by phoenix98

    …and I assume you don’t like it? It’s actually my most favorite song from her

"Zero" definitely feels like their poppiest offering in a while, so I can see why that would strike you as too "basic" :x Ha, speaking of "I See Fire," I think our contrasting reactions to that song parallel our feelings about "Alice"...
    Interesting! Well, since they announced the new album (already!) there’s a chance “Zero” may grow on me as it will be on it. “Natural” too. I just feel like it’s a bit too soon as “Evolve” still had so many strong tunes left, especially the brilliant “I’ll Make It Up To You” :(
    Awww at “I See Fire” :( I think we already talked about Ed’s discography in general a while ago and I think it never appeared on your charts from what I remember, right?

    • I've never heard of Sophia Somajo before, but she and Alan Walker have created something pretty fabulous here!
    • A bit bummed to see both "Head Above Water" and "Let You Love Me" leave the Top 10 already, but you did say it was a surprisingly competitive week.
    • Lovin' that new peak for "N’oublie pas" thanks to the album effect!
    • Looks like Dancing Queen did...OK? The idea of doing an entire covers album dedicated to a single act does strike me as a bit odd, especially when some of those hits are SO well-known in their original form (in addition to many other covers over the years). I get that it ties in well to her role in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, but it's a little hard for me to get truly excited about/immersed in this project. Most of her renditions just seem...fine?

    Yet another tempting chart, Tansike!
    Hm? I guess you have this from my little text of my charts, do you? If so, it says it’s the third song with three or more consecutive weeks at #1, but it also says there are six songs in total with three ore more weeks at #1

    Same for me! He’s actually a very good singer It’s so exciting to be a fan of Gaga at the moment as she’s doing incredibly well on iTunes with the Soundtrack <3

    I also have no idea who Sophia Somajo is, but she sounds like Sia, don’t you think so? Glad to hear you enjoy this new song by Alan Walker, especially because we just talked about his discography not long ago.

    It really was, otherwise they would’ve stayed there. It’s a pity especially for Avril as I thought she’d reach a new peak that week, and then all the new release came along… but I feel like both songs will hang on for quite a while and will end up as nice hits, so that’s what matters in the end

    “N’oublie pas” is definitely a highlight of the album

    Do you mean on my charts or overall? It’s her first entry on my album charts so I think #4 is good enough, plus “Gimme!” is already her biggest hit ever. Overall, I feel like this is such a surprise hit for Cher… but musically, I have to say I expected more songs that would be like “Gimme!”. That one has lots of energy, and some songs on the album don’t have that. So I’m with you on that.

    Thanks so much

    ^ The song didn't really get me (yet). I hope the album release in a week may change this.

    Also, even though i'm still quite new to Amaranthe (this will be my second album by them), i already feel like the thing they're doing is the same over and over and over again.

    I just checked out your #1, and it's so uneventful.

    I also listened to "Pressure", and I liked it.

    I notice "With You" debuted at #30. Hope it climbs this week!

    Oh, and it's interesting how I was just writing in JakeP's thread that the Alan Walker song featured Kerli-esque vocals, and now I see the track here. I don't know if I was just imagining that because of the song title, though.

    Believe it or not, but I actually remember VERY well how you checked out their song "Paradise (What About Us?)" featuring Tarja nearly exactly five years ago (it was their last lead single) and the reason why I remember it so well is because you were so impressed with their vocal performances, and it even made your daily chart <3
    Aw, it's sweet that you remember this!
    You can search the entire universe and not find a single being more worthy of love than you.

    You've got a MUCH better excuse than I do there I'm definitely harder on my own mistakes/typos than others', though. As long as I can understand what they're trying to convey, it's all good. I think you come across INCREDIBLY well, considering English isn't your first/main language! Actually, on that note, I don't think I've ever asked when/how you learned English...

    Spoiler!
    I never would've guessed! Not like that's SO old or anything, but I definitely assumed he was younger based on the few pics I've seen of him/you two together. So THAT'S your perfect type: older, but still looks your age? ;)

    You were born on Friday the 13th? That's awesome! I don't think I've ever asked: are you into horror movies at all?

    Hmmm…. no comment…. yes
    I think we already talked about this in the past though I’m not really sure, so I’m just asking: Are you a good dancer?
    Awesome! Where did they perform? Your man should bring you up on stage sometime ;) Ha, I definitely LIKE to dance (after a few drinks), but the results usually aren't pretty...

    Eh, the original didn't do much for me, so I guess this is a slight improvement...but I still wish they'd done more with "Nervous" instead. :(

    Phew! I'll gladly take that review I think the fact that Miguel gets so much of the track to himself helps the song make a better impression on people who usually aren't as crazy about Mariah.

From what I remember, none of her songs really took off in the US, right? That’s a shame, especially for the brilliant “Anywhere” :(
    Yeah Her biggest Hot 100 hit (aside from "Black Widow") has been the No. 62-peaking "How We Do (Party)." WAY too many British acts (with plenty of mainstream hit potential) get snubbed here, and I TRULY don't get it (Rita, Little Mix, Cheryl Cole/Girls Aloud, Years & Years, Jess Glynne, etc).

    ...but at least "Let You Love Me" is officially a UK Top 5 smash now!

    Whoops! Well, there's a perfect example of a proofreading/closer-reading fail on my part.

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike

That one has lots of energy, and some songs on the album don’t have that. So I’m with you on that.
    Ah, OK - so we're both somewhat underwhelmed by the album overall, but for different reasons. I think some of the ballads (especially "One Of Us," but also "Chiquitita") actually stand out/redeem the album the most. A lot of the uptempos feel too similar to the originals for me (or they just don't offer an interesting enough twist to make me want to play them over the originals, or even over other cover versions, like the A*Teens's "Mamma Mia").

    • YES! I didn't want to get my hopes up, since we weren't on the same page with "Alone," so I'm really pleased to see that "Without Me" clicked with you too! Here's hoping the general public appreciates it more than they did "Alone" too. **Fingers crossed**
    • Nice little rebound for "Let You Love Me."
    • I was so excited for "1999," and it's just...fine. I mean, I'd still take it over most of the stuff that's smashing on the Hot 100 right now but both Charli and Troye have done SO much more for me before, this just feels like a leftover/afterthought by comparison.
    • "GTFO" didn't stick around for long, but at least "With You" swooped in soon after! Could Caution become your first Mariah album experience...?
    • Speaking of not sticking around, poor "All For You" really needs to slow down!
    • I haven't seen A Star Is Born, but I added the solo-Gaga songs to my library to treat like a new EP from her. Since the soundtrack managed that No. 1 debut, which tracks have you been enjoying besides "Shallow"?

    Yet another chart that's fine with me, Tansike!

    Not on my charts though :( It's nice, but weaker than "GTFO". It's likely to already leave this week, but maybe the album release will bring it back in the future

    I notice "With You" debuted at #30. Hope it climbs this week!

    Oh, and it's interesting how I was just writing in JakeP's thread that the Alan Walker song featured Kerli-esque vocals, and now I see the track here. I don't know if I was just imagining that because of the song title, though.
    ...
    Aww... sad to hear you don't like Halsey's new track that much. I think it's very catchy and a strong pop tune. Not as strong as some of her stuff on "hopeless fountain kingdom" (her last album), but still strong enough for a new single. But i don't remember you being enthusiastic about any of her tracks, so you're not the biggest fan of her anyway, right?

    Glad you enjoyed "Pressure", definitely the best Muse has released from their upcoming album so far!

    Kerli-esque vocals? I never even thought about this, but it's actually a great thought
    I also had to think about Kerli's song with a similar name though

    Believe it or not, but I actually remember VERY well how you checked out their song "Paradise (What About Us?)" featuring Tarja nearly exactly five years ago (it was their last lead single) and the reason why I remember it so well is because you were so impressed with their vocal performances, and it even made your daily chart <3
    Aw, it's sweet that you remember this!
    Of course <3

    Thanks! Interesting point, as I’m surprisingly also quite harsh on mistakes/typos made by others. I don’t see my own mistakes/typos all the time, but you can give me a huge text by someone else and the first thing I see are the mistakes/typos (if there are any).
    Well, I learned it in school. We have nine grades here and I had it from seventh to ninth grade, plus two and a half years during my apprenticeship (as I always had two days school a week and one of my subjects was English). Though I never really learned for school so most of my English skills actually come from UKMix. When I joined in January 2012 I was much worse with English but writing on here has helped me a lot.
    Also, I never talked it (only had to write it), but since last year, my partner’s sister in law lives in Switzerland and moved here from the US (Texas) so there’s also finally someone I can speak to in English.

    Haha yeah he’s very lucky with his genes Honestly, age is just a number. Sometimes he’s acting much younger than I do and sometimes it’s the other way. It already happened that the age difference wasn’t helpful (as I’m still not used to things he’s used to) but overall it really doesn’t matter at all in our case. On one side, yes, I enjoy having a man who is older and can show me things, on another side I’m sure I also wouldn’t mind having someone younger. I never really thought about it and it is how it is.

    Yes, I was born on Friday the 13th… no, not at all :( Like, really not at all. I always get nightmares watching horror movies. Sometimes I’m trying it out and now I’m at least ‘able’ to watch things like Alien but I guess you mean other horror movies, right? Do you like them?

    Quote Originally Posted by phoenix98

    They actually performed in a cave, a very unusual location. Oh I don’t think I’d enjoy that!
    Ah so similar like me!

    Ah, interesting! The original used to be such a big fan favorite so I assumed you also enjoyed it more than the remix! I also wish they’d gone with “Nervous”, a full treatment for “Youth” or something completely different. I don’t see this remix doing well on the charts. Maybe the article which wrote ‘2nd single’ was just a random one and doesn’t really mean something…

    That’s true. Well, I don’t even have a problem with Mariah’s voice. If she has the material, I’d be definitely here for her. I’m actually low-key excited for her upcoming release
    Talking about her… do you have a favorite album by her? Like, if I’d have the time to check something out from her, which one would you recommend the most?

    Quote Originally Posted by phoenix98

    ...but at least "Let You Love Me" is officially a UK Top 5 smash now!
    Ouch! I knew her Hot 100 stats aren’t the best, but I thought one of “Your Song”/”Anywhere” at least made the Top50 or so So true about the British acts, I already wondered the same years ago…

    Hmmm… it’s been just a week and my view on the album already changed, as I’m surprisingly already over it now Like, it’s nice and all, but after hearing it a few times I suddenly got the feeling like it’s just a simple karaoke album. It’s fun at times but overall I don’t even see the purpose of this if ABBA’s originals are just *SO* good. So as you say, doing covers which are so similar to the originals just isn’t the best idea. But hey, it seems to work really well for her on a commercial level so that’s cool.

    *fingers crossed* that’d be awesome! It’s such a catchy pop track. On one side I’m sad she’s already moving on considering how much I love(d) “hopeless fountain kingdom” – I still think there are some brilliant tunes left which deserved a video. On another side, I’m glad she’s already moving on and keeps on releasing great tunes. She’s having an incredible run for me and I’m so happy this song also clicked with you <3

    I can see “Let You Love Me” being quite stable for the upcoming few weeks

    Oh thank god! I was afraid I’d be the only one who is underwhelmed by “1999”. I mean, it’s Charli XCX AND Troye. I expected something more epic. That way it’s a nice but also quite forgettable song, so I’m completely on your side with this.

    It could – and I’m sorry, I just remembered that I already own one of her albums, though it’s not a proper one: “Merry Christmas”!

    I’m afraid “All For You” was released during the wrong time for me :( But at least it’s already more successful than “If You’re Over Me”…

    Mostly the Gaga songs, especially “Why Did You Do That?”, “Heal Me”, “Before I Cry” and “Always Remember Us This Way”. The soundtrack has been such a positive surprise for me and I hope I can watch the movie soon – I just need someone else to come with me Can’t wait to hear your feedback about the Gaga songs, they’re really good!

    Thank you so much

    Hi Tansike

    1 (NEW) Ariana Grande – Breathin

    Well it's about time! But i'm so happy that breathin now qualifies for your chart. It's already well on its way to being one of my big songs of the year, and is still holding up strongly in my weekly charts.

    The power of the baby pig. <3

    3 (2) Alan Walker & Sophia Somajo – Diamond Heart

    I'm also delighted that Diamond heart was able to improve on its #5 entry as i had a gut feeling that would be its peak. Alan Walker is definitely back at the top of his game with this slice of synth blissfulness.

    5 (12) Ariana Grande – God Is A Woman *P*

    Cool rebound here, is it a knock on effect from the new arrival of breathin. Whatever it is, it's very good. Could the year end chart consist of an all Ariana top 3? Actually has any artist ever held positions #1, #2 and (or) #3 in your year end charts?

    6 (5) Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper – Shallow

    So i might be going to see this on Sunday if all goes to plan. I was hoping to go last Saturday with my mate but he didn't want to go. Now there's potentially 4 of us going to see the film. If so, it could have an impact on my chart although the results won't be known until my chart dated 27th Oct. Excitement!

    11 (17) Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry *2xP*

    See #5.

    16 (NEW) Little Mix feat. Nicki Minaj – Woman Like Me

    Not gonna lie, i'm slightly disappointed with this. I do like Woman like me and its looking set to enter my chart...but it'll be the girls first lead single from a new album to miss my #1 spot. In fact it might fail to crack my top 10 which is kinda tragic by Little Mix standards. I can only hope the next single will be a more JakeP friendly.

    Best of the rest:

    9 (8) Kodaline – Brother
    10 (7) Lana Del Rey – Venice Bitch
    12 (9) Twenty One Pilots – Jumpsuit
    14 (11) Rita Ora – Let You Love Me
    17 (10) Nick Jonas & Robin Schulz – Right Now *G*
    21 (13) Avril Lavigne – Head Above Water
    22 (19) Calvin Harris & Sam Smith – Promises
    24 (21) BTS feat. Nicki Minaj – Idol
    25 (RE) Jess Glynne – All I Am
    27 (25) Troye Sivan – Bloom
    28 (31) Years & Years – All For You
    29 (16) Charli XCX & Troye Sivan – 1999
    30 (23) Carrie Underwood – Love Wins
    32 (29) Lindsey Stirling – First Light *P*
    35 (34) Nicki Minaj – Ganja Burn
    36 (RE) Jess Glynne – I’ll Be There
    40 (32) Carrie Underwood feat. Ludacris – The Champion

    This just might be your finest #1 of the year, and one of the best ones you've ever had. It's such a therapeutic joy. It's helped me through many stressful work days since August.

    On the minus side, you've knocked "With You" out after just a single week on the chart.

    Good debut for "Woman Like Me". That turned out to be a big grower for me.

    Excited to see if "Breathin" can fend off the tracks from all those new releases you highlighted in the Random Thought thread!

    1 (NEW) Ariana Grande – Breathin
    2 (1) Halsey – Without Me
    3 (2) Alan Walker & Sophia Somajo – Diamond Heart
    4 (3) Within Temptation feat. Jacoby Shaddix – The Reckoning
    5 (12) Ariana Grande – God Is A Woman *P*
    6 (5) Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper – Shallow
    8 (6) DJ Snake feat. Selena Gomez, Cardi B & Ozuna – Taki Taki
    10 (7) Lana Del Rey – Venice Bitch
    11 (17) Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry *2xP*
    14 (11) Rita Ora – Let You Love Me
    16 (NEW) Little Mix feat. Nicki Minaj – Woman Like Me
    20 (NEW) Mikolas Josef – Me Gusta
    21 (13) Avril Lavigne – Head Above Water
    24 (21) BTS feat. Nicki Minaj – Idol
    25 (RE) Jess Glynne – All I Am
    27 (25) Troye Sivan – Bloom
    28 (31) Years & Years – All For You
    29 (16) Charli XCX & Troye Sivan – 1999
    30 (23) Carrie Underwood – Love Wins
    31 (22) Cher – Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)
    32 (29) Lindsey Stirling – First Light *P*
    35 (34) Nicki Minaj – Ganja Burn
    36 (RE) Jess Glynne – I’ll Be There
    40 (32) Carrie Underwood feat. Ludacris – The Champion

But i don't remember you being enthusiastic about any of her tracks, so you're not the biggest fan of her anyway, right?
    I was a big fan of "Colours", and thought "New Americana" was interesting.
    You can search the entire universe and not find a single being more worthy of love than you.

    I'm positively surprised by his whole album to be honest. I don't know "Do You Think About Me?", i'll check it out

    Hey Jake

    I knew you would love that debut! This was a case of a song where I wasn’t sure if I should let it onto my charts or not, and I was waiting for an official confirmation about it being a single all the time, because it deserved an entry for ages. I’m glad she released a video now, so it was finally time to let it onto my charts… and how cute is that video?!
    It will be exciting to see all the Year-End Charts this time as I think Ariana’s three singles will do well on most of them. She really slayed in 2018.

    “Diamond Heart” was even a contender for #1 the last two weeks but the competition is very strong at the moment. Ariana’s #1 debut was safe, and I love Halsey since last year and “Without Me” is a strong song IMO so Alan was a little bit unlucky, but this still may end up as his second biggest hit ever here. Completely agree with you

    It’s 50/50… “Breathin” also plays a part in this rebound, but I enjoyed “God Is A Woman” so much last week compared to the previous weeks so it would have climbed without the arrival of “Breathin” as well. Well, don’t think Top3 is possible as “Breathin” came out a bit too late (or it would need to be near the top for the rest of the year, which will be difficult…) but who knows, maybe she’ll get the Top2?
    No, it never happened before, though Lana Del Rey came close in 2012 with “Video Games” (#1), “Born To Die” (#2) and “Blue Jeans” (#4). Loreen’s “Euphoria” prevented that achievement.

    Oh, that’s great! Maybe I can convince my partner today as it’s still unsure what we’ll do this evening. I hope I can see it, the reviews are amazing, the music is strong and it’s Lady freaking Gaga! I had a little Gaga day yesterday and listened to “The Fame”, “The Fame Monster”, “Born This Way” and “Artpop” and I remembered how big her influence on me was since her breakthrough. I'm at a point where I can finally say that based on material, she’s actually my favorite artist ever.
    Anyways, can’t wait to hear your feedback for the movie and if it will have an effect on your charts :cool:

    It’s kinda good to hear that from you, as you loved them so much in the past and I really didn’t know what to think of this, and it seems there are a lot of people who are disappointed. I also expected a stronger comeback It also won’t have a long life on my charts as I’m already completely over it… :( Yes, fingers crossed the second single will be more our taste or maybe it will grow on us once the album comes out.

    Maybe she can try to represent Switzerland once again in the ESC in the future. She has improved so much since 2011, especially in the vocal department.
    Also, the music video has just been released.

    I had no idea you’re loving “Breathing” THAT much! I still prefer the other two singles from “Sweetener” but it’s definitely another very, very strong single from her. She really released the three best songs of the album and has three of the best songs of the year overall.

    I thought “With You” was slightly weaker than “GTFO” and that one already stayed there for only two weeks But I have to admit, prior “GTFO” and “With You” she only had two entries on my charts with “I Want To Know What Love Is” in 2010 and “All I Want For Christmas Is You” in 2016, so 2018 has been a good year for her on my charts

    Ah, good to hear that! I’m still a bit disappointed and I hope it also turns out as a grower for me!

    Well, it will be tough for Ariana next week. Lindsey Stirling and Zara Larsson are two huge competitors based on how they’ve done in the past, and there are rumors about a new Within Temptation single which may drop later today as well.

    Very happy you’re enjoying loads of the Top40 <3

    Well, I like these two songs and the latter was the first thing I’ve heard from her. But nothing from “hopeless fountain kingdom” clicked with you then…

    Yes, that would be a great idea! I only became a fan of them with the second album, they released some good songs which could have done better on the contest than their entry.
    Haven't seen the video yet...

    WT is still my number-one.. a pity the new single wasn't released this week!

    It's amazing to see "Breathin'" on top of your chart,though! Cute video & excellent song! And it's great to read that it's the fourth consecutive Ariana #1 single on your chart in this year alone!!! IMPRESSIVE!

    It's nice to see Czech Republic's hottie's new song debut so high and "Hold Your Head Up" is great as well! She deserves to get another shot at Eurovision!

    Pretty sure, your chart update next week will be highly Metal-influenced

    ^ Oh, still your number one? That's awesome! I got a little bit back into "The Reckoning" but there are currently so many strong new releases, so the competition is strong. Also, i'm a little bit happy they actually didn't release "Raise Your Banner" this week, as there is another new release which amazed me so much that it will be the clear #1 for my next chart, so WT would've settled down for #2 or so.

    Ariana is slaying this year :cool: Fingers crossed "Breathin" also becomes a hit on the charts out there!

    Glad you're enjoying these two ESC-related new entries, and i agree about Anna Rossinelli. But i think she got over the contest now and built her own thing. Not many artists can do that... and now that she has a career, she probably has more to loose than to win.

    I'm not even sure yet The metal releases didn't catch my attention as much as i expected so far, but there are still some days left until the new charts comes out, so maybe this will change until then

    Well, I learned it in school. We have nine grades here and I had it from seventh to ninth grade, plus two and a half years during my apprenticeship (as I always had two days school a week and one of my subjects was English). Though I never really learned for school so most of my English skills actually come from UKMix. When I joined in January 2012 I was much worse with English but writing on here has helped me a lot.
    Also, I never talked it (only had to write it), but since last year, my partner’s sister in law lives in Switzerland and moved here from the US (Texas) so there’s also finally someone I can speak to in English.
    Harsh but that does mean you'd make a great proofreader/copy-editor/etc!

    Interesting! The fact that UKMIX and your partner's sister-in-law have helped the most actually makes a lot of sense, since that real-world-application/immersion makes SUCH a difference when you're trying to learn a language. I took Spanish classes throughout high school, but my Spanish skills are NOWHERE near your English skills! I might be able to piece together the meaning of something that I see written down, but writing a full response myself would be tricky, and conversations are basically impossible (except with small children, maybe...)

On one side, yes, I enjoy having a man who is older and can show me things, on another side I’m sure I also wouldn’t mind having someone younger. I never really thought about it and it is how it is.
    Has he shown you a whole new world? ;)

    Kidding (but not kidding) aside, the meaning/expectations attached to our age are definitely over-emphasized (sometimes even moreso among gay men, where turning 30 is treated like falling off a cliff) :x but as I get older, I'm noticing more how some of my jokes/references/nostalgia don't land with younger people (and the reverse is true too, how some things that are really important/common knowledge to a younger crowd don't interest or make sense to me at all...)

    Ha, that's a really fun factoid that you were actually born on Friday the 13th...but BOO @ you hating horror movies I haven't seen many of the modern/2010's ones, but I'm pretty familiar with the big 70's/80's classics like Halloween (I still need to see the new one, though!), Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Child's Play, etc. For me, those are the perfect way to get scared in a fun, safe way (as opposed to stuff like roller coasters, which genuinely terrify me and make me miserable the entire time).

    Like a literal cave in a mountain or something? Unusual indeed! Was there some significance to choosing a location like that...?

Maybe the article which wrote ‘2nd single’ was just a random one and doesn’t really mean something…
    Is that your way of saying you much prefer the original? ;)

    Ooh...I love you for asking, but it's such a struggle to choose! Butterfly is a huge fan favorite, and probably mine as well (though it's been a while since I've played through all of her albums to compare)...but it's also when she started really leaning into R&B, so I'm not sure if it would be the best recommendation for you specifically. Daydream is a better compromise between her poppier beginnings and R&B/Hip-hop-flavored evolution (and it's another of my all-time-favorites from her).

    Although this is kind of a lame answer, the best place to start is probably her Greatest Hits (it only covers her material up to 2000, but you're probably already more familiar with her singles after that anyway) or #1 To Infinity. Greatest Hits was actually the first album of hers that I ever bought back in 2002, and it REALLY helped turn me into a fan (after only being familiar with some of her big/most recent hits beforehand). No pressure, though!

    They certainly SHOULD'VE! Neither even cracked the Hot 100...

On another side, I’m glad she’s already moving on and keeps on releasing great tunes. She’s having an incredible run for me and I’m so happy this song also clicked with you <3
    Sadly, that era seemed to really derail after "Bad At Love" smashed so hard :-? "Alone" got that new version and video, but the public (shockingly) said "pass"...then "Strangers" got an (underwhelming) video, but wasn't treated like a proper single in any other way. I wonder if the fact that some of her featured singles started doing well/stealing the spotlight ("Him & I," "Eastside") convinced them against investing more in HFK.

    Phew! The video definitely deserves some credit, though.

    Nice! That's still better than having none, and "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is kind of becoming her signature/most recognized and enduring song....

    Your man can't be bothered with Gaga - even in a movie about being in the music industry (like he is in real life)? Maybe this is where the age difference can present a problem...

    Pork powers ACTIVATE! Although the video's certainly not what I expected (or quite what such an epic song deserves), I LOVE that it lead to this No. 1 debut! So My Everything eventually produced five No. 1 hits here, which means Sweetener is just one short of achieving the same now?
    • If I remember right, Little Mix were starting to really click with you last era, right? Hopefully they haven't undone all of that with "Woman Like Me."
    • Poor Avril's really starting to sink...
    • Pleased to see those Always In Between re-entries, especially that new peak for "All I Am" Has anything else on the album been standing out to you? I never checked out I Cry When I Laugh, but based on the first two singles (and the convenience of Apple Music), I gave Always In Between a try. Glad I did!

    Yet another chart that's like a breath of fresh air, Tansike!
