It’s so cool to have this on a big screen now and being able to go through everything like that. But I got two negative points: First it’s basically the 1st Gen so it’s been played several times and there’s not a lot to discover, so I’m afraid I’ll be bored rather quickly, and second I’m not used yet to the new system of catching new Pokémon. I guess I just need to warm up on this as I’ve never been a big fan of ‘Go’. Since i'll be at home for two weeks soon I will most likely dive much more into this. How far are you now if I may ask?
    So it's certainly still worth preserving, and it sounds like you take pride in using it too. A meaningful part of your heritage, identity, etc.

    Nice! I'm excited to hear that you picked it up, since I thought all the negative reactions from fans online and the fact that you were just playing Yellow earlier this year might deter you (at least for now). Regarding the new catching method, it seems to be a LOT easier when you use the Switch in handheld mode (though you lose the experience of playing on a big screen that way). I just beat Misty yesterday and started catching some Pokémon on Route 5. I'm having a lot of fun with the new catching style (the catch combos make it especially addictive), and seeing wild Pokémon running around the overworld REALLY brings Kanto to life…but I don't feel as connected to my main team when they're constantly leveling up without ever actually using them in battle. There's definitely more Trainers in the early areas than RBY, but they still only have 1-2 weak Pokémon each, so not many teammates get to enjoy screen-time in battles. I knew that Abilities and held items were removed, but I didn't expect them to take so many moves out of the game as well. So yeah...I don't understand some of the decisions they made in crafting these "remakes," but I'm absolutely still enjoying it overall! Gen I nostalgia helps, for sure, but I think it's a genuinely enjoyable gaming experience in its own right too.

Also, my special taste is even more special as I can find someone very sexy today and don’t find him sexy at all the next day, which is kinda weird too
    Amen to that! I mean, amazing abs are always gonna have SOME impact on me...but the effect really isn't the same if you have to put a bag over his head to enjoy them.

    Damn @ you being so fickle, though Granted, I guess that means you might join me on #teamtyler someday... ;)

    Sh*t :x That's so disappointing (and frustrating). Why is a little relief so hard to find sometimes? I hate when our own bodies insist on working/fighting against us despite our best efforts. **Hug**

    Thanks! It’s on the 26th, so next Monday. I’m starting to get REALLY nervous about it, also because there are some things that worry me like I shouldn’t smoke for two weeks after the surgery, already having several appointments for checks with the first one being the day after the surgery at 10am, so I won’t be able to rest at all Anyways, if you keep your posting pattern then this means I’m already really looking forward to read your reply to this as it will be over by then (or i'm looking forward to it even more than usual )
    And these medical professionals have the nerve to blame YOU? For being NERVOUS? ABOUT AN OPERATION?!?! :evil: :evil: :evil:

    Any rate, hopefully today's procedure went MUCH better and you're relaxing somewhere right now (playing Let's Go) ;) Or getting a sponge bath from your man...

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike

I thought “Let Me Love You” made a similar experience – I can’t imagine it being SO popular among her other strong songs. I think “God Is A Woman” still did fantastic, but I expected it to win the “Sweetener” survivor as it was more popular in every round than “No Tears”, while both of these singles probably benefitted a lot in the Artist Survivor for still being so fresh. I don’t think they would be that popular in let’s say five years. I agree about “Yours Truly” but apart from the US it wasn’t a hit at all, so I can see why its songs didn’t do well.

    Do you have a personal Top5 (or so) when it comes to Ariana? As for right now, mine would be “No Tears”, “Break Free”, “God Is A Woman”, “Into You” and “One Last Time” in no particular order, so in the end I’m more than happy with the final survivor results
    Agreed!

    HmMmMm...I'm SO indecisive when it comes to rankings (which is partially why I rely on play counts for my personal chart) I'll probably want to revise this in an hour or two, but I'll say:

    1.) "Moonlight"
    2.) "Into You"
    3.) "The Way"
    4.) "Honeymoon Avenue"
    5.) "Break Free"

    It's a VERY tight race, though, so that exact order can fluctuate a lot based on my state of mind (and there's still so many other gems that I wish I could include, like "One Last Time," "Problem," "Love Me Harder," "Breathin"...)

    My skills get sharper with each week that I comment here...

    It was very hit-or-miss for me (half the tracks have 30+ plays each, while the other half have less than 10 plays each) The strong moments were enjoyable enough to make me glad I gave the whole album a chance, though.

Funny thing is how I played this to my partner when it came out and he thought it’s kinda boring, and on the weekend he listened to it again and was shocked how good it actually is, especially the lyrics and I was like ‘told ya -.-‘
    It even has the power to impress your man (who usually dismisses mainstream stuff, right?) Further proof that Ari's really tapped into something extra-special with this one!

She was the main reason why I checked “Play Destroy” out and it turned out so interesting in a positive way that I even checked out the whole album. There are some other great songs, such as ”Aristocrat”. I think you may enjoy a few songs since it’s quite similar to what Grimes did on “Art Angels”.
    Yeah, even before checking out "Play Destroy," I got the impression that Poppy's somewhat similar to Grimes (so it seemed especially fitting that they teamed up for a track). Many thanks for the suggestion! Garibay actually collaborated with Kylie on a couple EPs, so apparently Poppy's got connections to quite a few artists I know (and like).

    It looks like her songs need to have ‘love’ in their titles to enter my charts
    So from what I’m hearing you’re usually enjoying Cheryl’s music, do you?
    Ah, so she had quite the dry spell between "Fight For This Love" and "Crazy Stupid Love" Ha, yeah, I've loved a lot of her solo stuff. I was going to post some of her Paulboard chart history here, but even if I only included her Top 5's, there's still 17 of those.

    So that are three flops in a row for Zara, Ellie and Carly… and it looks like Ashley Tisdale may follow a similar path as well. Four pop girls who used to SLAY my charts and now this
    I guess Ari's the only one who can still get things right in 2018 Though "Party For One" still works for me.

    • A friend of a friend put on a playlist while prepping Thanksgiving dinner that included Linsdey, "365," and I'm pretty sure some Within Temptation too, so I was obviously thinking of you the whole time <3 It really felt like you'd catered it yourself!
    • So there's finally a release date for Kerli's next album, AND a lead single dropping in the very near future?!?! HYPE! Hopefully she'll be the one to redeem the pop girls after Ellie, Hailee, Carly, Ashley, etc. ;)
    • Obviously loving that Top 5 debut for Caution! Not gonna lie, when I first heard the full album, I was a little worried/disappointed about it being your very first Mariah album experience It's definitely cohesive, but if that brand of mid-tempo R&B isn't quite your style, the cohesiveness of the album can work against it. I'm still sorting through my feelings about it overall, but I'm really glad it did something for you! Were there any standout tracks besides the singles/pre-release songs?

    Yet another uplifting chart, Tansike!

    Sadly, I have been very busy lately (still am) but I just want to sneak in and tell you that your Top 2 is excellent!

    A pity I missed the opportunity to update my Top 5 so that WT would have got a bigger boost on the UkmixParade.

    Glad "RYB" is #1 <3 - So excited for Lena's new album, too

    Well, picking it up was always a sure thing, playing it is another though. But as a fan it was clear that I need that game in my collection as well. Having played Yellow earlier this year definitely wasn't the best idea though as Let's Go seems very repetitive now. The part about connecting with your team is a thing many people seem to have from what I read online; you basically only need your Starter to play through the whole game. But I think it's that way to get new players as well, as new players were probably overwhelmed by everything with the last few editions.

    I haven't played more yet btw but I hope I'll be able to do so soon, depending on how I feel obviously. Already being at the computer and writing this whole replay was kinda exhausting as I had to take several breaks & going back to bed before finishing it...

    Can't wait to get a new update from your game soon

    Interestingly someone who worked in a medical environment and didn't know about my sleeping problems just told me that my nose surgery may help a lot when it comes to sleep, as the air circulates much better through my body afterwards, so maybe there lies the main problem with my sleeping problems. But there are probably also several other things I could optimize to get better sleep...

    To their defense, I was very nervous and even had panic attacks.
    But I had the same this week and they gave me some medicine to cool down (and I even fell asleep after that) so back then they definitely could've handled it better.

    Thanks!
    The whole thing went pretty well. Well, they didn't plan it well and I had to wait for six hours instead of 1-2 hours which was also the reason why I started to get panic attacks. Waiting is probably the worst thing, especially when someone already experienced some bad things. But once I got a medicine against these attacks I fell asleep... they woke me up later for the surgery and one second after taking the first breath of the anesthesia I already was away and the next thing I remember was that I arrived in my room.
    Thankfully I don't have pain at all and my doctor was surprised at how good I look as you see nothing on my face except my nose which is just a little bit swollen. It was expected to have a bruises on the face... but i'm glad that's not the case. Even though I have no pain it still feels VERY uncomfortable. My nose is always blocked and therefor I'm having a pressure in my head all the time which is VERY annoying when drinking or eating and it gives me non-stop headache. Also, i'm completely demotivated in doing a thing at all as my battery currently seems at like 10%.
    Yesterday I made a short visitation at my doctor and he cleaned my nose as good as possible so I could 'try it out' and I only realized how bad my breathing problems actually were as I was able to breath through my nose and it felt so... strange. I had no idea breathing through the nose would be like that... so i'm very excited when it's all recovered.

    That's a fantastic Top5! So we share two songs in our Top5 with "Into You" and "Break Free". I'm not surprised you didn't include the "Sweetener" songs, while "The Way" is VERY close to my Top5. Also glad to hear "One Last Time" is close to yours The Artist Survivor only made me realize how many gems she already released in just five and a half years and I love how her star power keeps on growing and growing. Even though "thank u, next" is probably not even in my Top10 tracks from her I'm still so freaking excited for the video release!

    Oh wow, very interesting to see such a gap in plays between one half and the other. Does it happen often that you're having such a mixed feeling about an album? Personally, I can't remember an album having a similar impact on me with one half being played so often and the other half barely not at all... but that's probably also because I rarely play albums not from start to finish.

    So glad you enjoy it! Yes, Poppy seems to have some good connections in the business, as there's also a collaboration with Diplo on her album.
    And speaking of Grimes, she's releasing new music tomorrow I'm really excited for that one and fingers crossed it's as awesome as "Play Destroy" and the "Art Angels" stuff <3

    To be fair, there was a long time when I didn't really check out stuff that I didn't buy digitally or physically, which explains this dry between "Fight For This Love" and "Crazy Stupid Love". I'm not familiar at all with her songs between these two releases to be honest with you even though I feel like I would've loved a few of them
    Ok, so this means she's another artist I have to check out

    Glad to hear Carly's song still works for you. Surprisingly, the ones by Ellie and Zara keep on appearing in my mind lately, so I'll probably revisit them soon...

    • So there's finally a release date for Kerli's next album, AND a lead single dropping in the very near future?!?! HYPE! Hopefully she'll be the one to redeem the pop girls after Ellie, Hailee, Carly, Ashley, etc. ;)
    • Obviously loving that Top 5 debut for Caution! Not gonna lie, when I first heard the full album, I was a little worried/disappointed about it being your very first Mariah album experience It's definitely cohesive, but if that brand of mid-tempo R&B isn't quite your style, the cohesiveness of the album can work against it. I'm still sorting through my feelings about it overall, but I'm really glad it did something for you! Were there any standout tracks besides the singles/pre-release songs?

    Yet another uplifting chart, Tansike!
    Oh wow, this sounds like a very good friend of a friend :cool: Aww... <3 I find it amazing how he put on a playlist like this though because I could never do that. I still don't play this kind of music that often or loud in my car when my partner is there for example. I don't even know why...

    I know It's coming out so soon which is completely unexpected. I hope so too. I know Kerli always gets a smash with her songs on my charts but I thought the same about some of the other pop girls, especially Ashley Tisdale or Ellie Goulding, so this really shows that if a song by an artist I usually love doesn't click with me, it still ends up as a flop even though I love that artist so much.

    Obviously no surprise you like that debut for "Caution". Unfortunately, it will have a terrible second week drop. Not because it's making a weaker impression on me now, but because there were TWO concerts last week which will affect my charts tomorrow. As for the album, I like that it flows so well as a whole, and "A No No", the title track but also "Portrait" made a very good impression on me. I have yet to check out your latest charts but i'll do so tomorrow or on Friday, so I'm excited to find out which songs are your favorite ones.

    In other news, I already listened to "Daydream", "Butterfly" AND "The Emancipation Of Mimi" once yesterday. There were some standouts on all albums which made a great impression on me but I need another spin to get to know which songs these standouts were, as I was playing them on my computer in my room while I was lying in the bed to rest... that was a great experience to listen to these albums without knowing how long they are, how the songs are called etc. (except for obvious hits like "We Belong Together" or "Get Your Number", which btw also was a big standout to me). From what I remember both standouts on "Daydream" and "Butterfly" were close to the end though, while both openers also made a great impression...

    I don't know, it seems to tick all the necessary boxes, but still doesn't work for me.
    I think i know what you mean. I feel like i should love this as it sounds like something that would smash on my charts, but somehow it doesn't really click with me anymore...

    Glad "RYB" is #1 <3 - So excited for Lena's new album, too
    Thanks for still taking the time to comment on here, as i knew you would love that Top2! I mean, it's WT and Lena... i only know two people who love that combination - us two

    btw i decided to treat "Firelight" as a single now so WT will have yet another entry on my charts tomorrow, so make sure to update your Top5 as well <3
    edit: Nevermind, just saw you already posted your new Top5

    Lots of stuff from Within Temptation + a new Lindsey Stirling song - I'll check some of these ones out later.

    Great to see "God Is a Woman" doing so well. How far away is it from double-platinum status? Also, I've been obsessed with "Baby" this past week.

    ...
    I hope you will enjoy the ones you'll check out

    I won't give away that yet because otherwise it could give away too many informations about my upcoming Year-End Charts.
    Glad to hear this about "Baby" - I'm still hoping it becomes a hit for them. It's so unfair how Marina is finally officially featured on one of their singles and it's not an instant hit like their previous songs :(

    I think I know why you can't answer this question yet - I'm already excited to find it out soon

    Can't wait to get a new update from your game soon
    Hopefully you're back to your usual strapping self now <3 Or at least feeling well enough to play more Let's Go ;) I guess one perk to having played Yellow so recently is that you'll be able to instantly notice any differences in these "remakes" and provide an interesting side-by-side comparison.

    I've made it to Lavender Town/Lavandia, but got a bit side-tracked by some shiny hunting in Rock Tunnel/Felstunnel I kept seeing posts/videos about people's successful shiny hunts, and it does feel easier/more fun in these games, since the Pokémon models are shiny in the overworld (and you can check a bunch at once just by looking around an area). I decided to track down a shiny Rhyhorn, and randomly found a shiny Charmander/Glumanda during the search! Once they're leveled-up to match the rest of my main team, I'll actually get back to the story again...

    Interesting! I hadn't thought about that, but it makes a lot of sense: easier to breathe = easier to sleep. Hopefully it proves true for you!

    Thanks!
    The whole thing went pretty well. Well, they didn't plan it well and I had to wait for six hours instead of 1-2 hours which was also the reason why I started to get panic attacks. Waiting is probably the worst thing, especially when someone already experienced some bad things. But once I got a medicine against these attacks I fell asleep... they woke me up later for the surgery and one second after taking the first breath of the anesthesia I already was away and the next thing I remember was that I arrived in my room.
    Thankfully I don't have pain at all and my doctor was surprised at how good I look as you see nothing on my face except my nose which is just a little bit swollen. It was expected to have a bruises on the face... but i'm glad that's not the case. Even though I have no pain it still feels VERY uncomfortable. My nose is always blocked and therefor I'm having a pressure in my head all the time which is VERY annoying when drinking or eating and it gives me non-stop headache. Also, i'm completely demotivated in doing a thing at all as my battery currently seems at like 10%.
    Yesterday I made a short visitation at my doctor and he cleaned my nose as good as possible so I could 'try it out' and I only realized how bad my breathing problems actually were as I was able to breath through my nose and it felt so... strange. I had no idea breathing through the nose would be like that... so i'm very excited when it's all recovered.
    **Hug** I didn't know you've experienced panic attacks. Do they happen from time-to-time, or only during these super-stressful operations? Waiting can DEFINITELY be the hardest part, since it just gives you more and more time to think about the worst case scenarios, everything that might go wrong, etc. All the scariest thoughts swirling in your head for hour...after hour...after hour :x Your doctor liked how good you looked, eh...? ;) Congrats on finally being able to breathe! That's certainly something most of us take for granted every day. Is it feeling even more clear/easier now, a week or so later? Now's the perfect time to put "Breathin" on repeat!

Also glad to hear "One Last Time" is close to yours The Artist Survivor only made me realize how many gems she already released in just five and a half years and I love how her star power keeps on growing and growing. Even though "thank u, next" is probably not even in my Top10 tracks from her I'm still so freaking excited for the video release!
    Glad you think so I totally agree about her being on such a roll/getting off to such a strong start with these first four albums! She's really been one of the most consistent popstars of the 2010's (at least among the ones whose albums I've heard in full, along with Tay + Carly Rae, though Tay did slip a bit with reputation...)

    Ooh...interesting question! It's definitely rare to have a near-perfect 50/50 split on an album between tracks that really click with me and tracks that don't really click at all. reputation was more like 70/30.

    And speaking of Grimes, she's releasing new music tomorrow I'm really excited for that one and fingers crossed it's as awesome as "Play Destroy" and the "Art Angels" stuff <3
    Sadly, there's been some drama/bad blood between Poppy and Grimes lately, which was such a downer to read :x It makes it a little harder to enjoy the track knowing that they came away from the experience really disliking each other. They seem like such a good match musically/artistically.

    They've both been gaining traction in the UK lately (both inside the official Top 20 now), so you're not alone there!

    Aw, I'm surprised to learn you're shy about sharing your music tastes - though I guess that's a part of what makes UKMIX appealing, since it's the perfect place to do that. Now, whether or not your man will be able to stand whatever you put on is a different story...

As for the album, I like that it flows so well as a whole, and "A No No", the title track but also "Portrait" made a very good impression on me. I have yet to check out your latest charts but i'll do so tomorrow or on Friday, so I'm excited to find out which songs are your favorite ones.

    In other news, I already listened to "Daydream", "Butterfly" AND "The Emancipation Of Mimi" once yesterday. There were some standouts on all albums which made a great impression on me but I need another spin to get to know which songs these standouts were, as I was playing them on my computer in my room while I was lying in the bed to rest... that was a great experience to listen to these albums without knowing how long they are, how the songs are called etc. (except for obvious hits like "We Belong Together" or "Get Your Number", which btw also was a big standout to me). From what I remember both standouts on "Daydream" and "Butterfly" were close to the end though, while both openers also made a great impression...
    RIP Caution but it's gotten over-shadowed pretty quickly for me too Rita's album came out the week after, and now The 1975's has dropped too. I'm definitely not done with Caution yet, but it had to step aside so I can delve into these other highly-anticipated albums.

    YES! SO glad you got around to all three of those classics <3 <3 <3 No rush/pressure, but I'd obviously love to hear which tracks wound up being the standouts. Sounds like she's managed to hook you with her closers, since you mentioned "Portrait" sticking out to you too. Most importantly - it doesn't sound like it was too painful/regrettable making it all the way through those LPs!

    • I like how "Firelight" has a somewhat softer/gentler, more...ballad-y feel to it. The instruments still pack a real punch at times (especially during the chorus), but the vocal delivery from the two main singers feels pretty...soothing. How were the concerts? Did your man come along for either?
    • Another stunning, striking, entertaining video from Lindsey! She seriously needs to start directing/producing/consulting for other artists' videos.
    • Lovin' the Phoenix re-entries and that No. 1 debut for the album itself! Did ORA ever chart? I never checked it out myself.
    • Poor "Bad Liar" suffered a pretty bad fall.

    Yet another chart that burns bright, Tansike!

    Thank you. Unfortunately, I didn't play at all yet :( I realized there are still so many other things to do plus I also need lots of time for doing nothing. I'm currently spending my days in doing things from my to-do-list and doing 1-2 hours breaks between that where I just lie in my bed and do nothing (except sleeping or playing games with my iPhone) so my nose (or basically my body) can recover. There was so much I didn't do in the last two years and a 'break' like I have now is good to catch up a few things even though my current break should only be for recovering, obviously. So I currently have no time for playing 'Let's Go'... :(

    Wow, that's already quite far! Can you estimate how many hours you've played so far? Because the game seems quite easy and I wonder if it's really that easy, so if one also goes through everything quickly or not. Woah about the shiny Charmander, that's cool! I didn't know catching shiny Pokémon is easier there but it must look awesome seeing a shiny Pokémon walking by... but so you got your shiny Rhyhorn as well?

    I hope so, too! It's currently worse than before but since I don't have to work at the moment it's not as exhausting as before...

    <3

    Oh no, they just happened before the surgery and 2-3 times in the past as well, just during very emotionally stressful moments. Yes, that's what freaked me out, especially because I was afraid of that anyway so having to wait for six hours instead of 1-2 hours is terrible. Haha... I think you know what i meant Because the other thing would be very unrealistic as I'd say he's more one of the people who aren't the biggest 'fans' of us Thanks, it was just for a short moment though and currently my nose still doesn't work the way it should, but that's normal. On Sunday, my sense of smell came back shortly and appears every now and then again since then, and my doctor said that's actually very early and quite unusual to have it back so soon. So actually no, it doesn't feel more clear/easier now. But I still have to 'clean' my nose 2-5 times a day and put some ointment (I hope that's the correct word; never used that before and just had to look it up ) into it so if i smell something it's often that and breathing isn't possible that way.
    Ha, "Breathin" really suits for the moment, didn't even think about it yet

    True!! And she's also constantly successful, which isn't easy to achieve for pop girls these days.
    Speaking about Ariana, I'm really wondering what happened to the "thank u, next" album. I really thought it would be out by now as she said it's still coming in 2018

    "Reputation" is such a good example here!

    Read about that case just yesterday and I'm shocked. I mean, Poppy basically says Grimes is fake, but reading a bit more into Poppy's story and who is behind her I think she may be the fake person, so no idea what to think about now. Also, it seemed like Poppy was featured on "We Appreciate Power" at first, which would have been so cool to have two Poppy/Grimes collaborations out at the same time and they're both awesome. Anyways, both (or especially Grimes) create great music so I'm not reading more into that story for now and just enjoy their music. Sometimes gossip like that could destroy music from artists for me and I really don't want that here, especially with Grimes' music.

    I saw that and even though the songs still aren't my favorite ones, I'm still so happy for the artists as I still love them and this means they'll stick to the release strategy. A big flop could have meant a delay of a possible album release like Meghan Trainor and I'm definitely not here for that.

    Yes, on UKMix it doesn't really matter what taste you have and I have to admit I'm shocked how 'well received' my taste seems to be, because I don't know many people who stan for bands like Within Temptation & Nightwish, know everything about the Pop divas and still being interested in other things too. As for my man, well, sometimes I listen to a few songs of that genre and he said he enjoys it as well, but I'm still reserved in playing that stuff regularly.

    Don't worry, it's not completely over for "Caution" Ah yeah, I was shocked when i saw how fast your charts changed from a complete Mariah domination to that Rita slayage. Not that I would complain, obviously, but it's still a surprise. But I guess the chances for some longevity for some of the "Caution" tracks may be high while these Rita/1975's songs may drop faster...

    I keep you updated! The last few days were busy (hell, I'm busy even being on sick leave ) so I didn't re-play them yet. But as you say, it wasn't painful at all to make it through these three albums and I even listened to them back to back, the time went by so incredibly quickly and since my surgery it was actually the most relaxing time so far, just lying in my bed and listen to these three albums. They brought the perfect mood. And you know... there are these moments in life which aren't really something outstanding, but still different to usual and you will remember these moments for a very long time, and that moment (coming home from the surgery, enjoying being for myself/back home, listening to MC) will be one of them. Haven't had my pleasure in discovering something 'new' like that in AGES. So thanks a lot!

    Thanks a lot for checking out my latest number one! Yes, "Firelight" is definitely not as hard as their other singles and I could even imagine this being played by radios. It's quite commercial and still sounds like Within Temptation, which is cool. The concerts were awesome, though both singers from both bands struggled a bit which was interesting as both are known for their awesome vocal deliveries. No, he didn't. I went to the Within Temptation concert with my mom and attended the Nightwish concert with my brother. My family also enjoys this music and since I moved out over eight years ago I didn't do much with them. That's also ok for us, but I still decided to ask them to come with me and also sleep at my place as they both didn't see it yet. Thanks for asking

    Ha, so true! Very glad you're enjoying the "You're A Mean One" video. She really got a strong videography and she already released the next one She's so productive!

    Since Rita is slayyying your charts I'm not surprised to hear you're enjoying her re-entries and the debut for the album. Actually, it's the same with me when it comes to Rita; I've never heard her debut

    Yes... Do you remember our little chat from a year ago? A Paloma Faith single didn't do that well (and someone else as well) and I told you there's always going on a lot towards the end of a year, and a few tracks may come back and smash (again) in the new year. It may be similar with Imagine Dragons' "Bad Liar" as I'm really liking it on one side, but there's just too much going on at the moment.

    Thanks a lot

    The verses are great, but that drop could have been better.

    ^ Glad you're enjoying the verses! The song is surprisingly commercial, I expected something more 'alternative', like "Feral Hearts" or "Blossom". Even though I'm really liking it, I'm not as happy with it as I expected...

    Also, the Eesti Laul songs have already been released so Estonia not only gave us new Kerli stuff, but once again supplied us with some cute songs in December.

    I just need to worship your second to last chart update.
    Seriously, that Top 3 was absolutely amazing. I am a bit disappointed I had no time to praise your excellent taste in music earlier this week!
    I am glad you enjoyed both concerts! What a great week it must have been!

    Btw, it's interesting that "The Heart Of Everything" re-entered your album chart at #3! - Even though I have always loved that album, I think that learning about this tour's setlist and attending their concert in Warszawa made me love it even more. The title song has become one of my favourite songs ever and I listen to it on a daily basis atm. The other tracks they performed on tour are stunning, too!

    When it comes to your new chart.... Another flawless #1. It's crazy that "Nothing Breaks Like A Heart" blocked Kerli from being number-one. I seriously believe that it's one of Miley's best singles to date. Loved it straight from the beginning but it's been growin' on me ever since.

    The Lena "Thank you" drop is worrying, though!!! - But I agree with you.. even though I don't think the song is bad or average, it basically has no replay value for me. I hope that the other tracks on the album will be more interesting and less "generic" in terms of production (even though the song still sounds fresh and modern).

    I'm guessing you're enjoying some of the Eesti Laul songs more than Kerli's "Savages", right? I'm excited for Estonia's choice this year, they are often one of my favorite countries on the contest

    I am thinking that Kerli could have been a contender this year with ''Savages''. It will be featured in my personal chart for sure.

    "Savages" would have had a chance to win Eesti Laul easily this year.

    Thanks - obviously no surprise to hear you enjoyed the Top3 from the previous chart. Yes, I enjoyed it, thanks. Though WT wasn't as good as on the "Hydra tour" - which still remains my most favorite live experience ever - while Floor was sick

    YES! I'm feeling similar with "The Heart Of Everything". I always enjoyed the album a lot, but this concert made me liking it even more and the concert easily had the biggest impact on that album for me. Somehow I never really realized how awesome the title track is. It was always one of my least faves on the record (definitely bottom three) and now I'm loving it so much. So nice how we have a similar feeling to the album following the concert

    Glad you're loving "Nothing Breaks Like A Heart" as well. It's simply stunning and has such a brilliant video. I'm so freaking excited for a new Miley era now. In that case, Kerli was very unlucky to go against a song which is that strong, but to be fair "Savages" is also not the 'masterpiece' I've expected from Kerli. So it was a clear battle for me in the end.

    I do enjoy "Thank You" a lot when I play it, but I already forget about it once I've finished playing it - if that makes sense. This is also why it's falling so fast... it's not bad at all, but it's not really sticking with me just as the other songs from my charts do. Also, it's so much weaker than her previous single releases.
