    22 (NEW) Mikolas Josef – Abu Dhabi
    Chart Run: *22*- / 1w

    He's very charming, but this is just another recycle of his successful formula to me.

    25 (NEW) ALMA – When I Die
    Chart Run: *25*- / 1w

    There are at least three ALMA singers now (Finnish, French and now Romanian), which is pretty confusing. ''When I Die'' has some makings of a hit.

    Yes, I agree about Mikolas' new song. It's "Lie To Me" part three now. He has to come up with something else otherwise I'll be over him very quickly.

    Didn't hear about the Romanian ALMA yet but yes, it's getting confusing.

    I also guess you're liking that high debut for Eluveitie this week?

    "Ategnatos" is just powerful and moving, so a deserved high debut.

    It is! Glad you approve it <3
    Their album is one of the most anticipated releases of the year for me.

As beautiful as these feelings are, they’re also kinda stressful, so being in another phase may be less beautiful sometimes, but also less stressful and you can simply enjoy living with someone. As for your question… nothing yet. I’m not really someone who celebrates these anniversaries. But that’s what I’m saying now, let’s see how it will turn out in a month and a half

    What about you? Are you someone who celebrates these anniversaries?
    So basically, the "sooo in love" feelings faded just before Valentine's Day? Ouch...

    Admittedly, I'm pretty bad about celebrating anniversaries too but that's something I'd like to change. It gets easier to take those landmarks for granted as time passes (6 years, 7 years, 8 years, etc), but I'd like to start putting in the effort to make those occasions a little more special/memorable.

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike View Post

    Ha, so are you saying that you DO talk about your man all the time in real life? When you talk to your boss for hours early every morning, is it all about him...?

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike View Post

On one side it's cool that it became a more common thing in my life, on another side I already felt kinda weird that concerts doesn't mean that much anymore when I went to see my two favorite bands last november. Speaking of concerts, I think I never asked you if you already attended concerts... so, did you? And if yes, who did you go to see live?
    Concerts are still rare for me, and that's another thing I'd like to change. I get too easily intimidated/put off by high ticket prices, but the experience is often totally worth the cost. I saw Pentatonix with Calum Scott and Echosmith last summer (but that was with my bf's family, since his cousin really wanted to go and the venue was close to where we live). The last concert I attended for an artist I really care about was Katy back in fall 2017.

But on the other hand I also don't want to post something all the time like these social media people are doing, that's too stressful. So I'm probably someone who is in the middle of the road, but that already brings a few negative things with it. So it's good if you're not really into it, as you can live very well without it.
    **Nod** That definitely makes sense, and it's a shame, because I think some social media is deliberately designed that way. It taps into people's insecurities and competitiveness, pushing them to post more and more in order to get more and more followers. It's an awesome feeling to know that people find you attractive and interesting, but craving that validation can lead to a nasty cycle pretty quickly. I think it's absolutely possible to use social media without it turning into something ugly and obsessive, but it's a tricky balance to achieve. The random, unprovoked negativity from strangers can be a real downer too. People use the anonymity as an opportunity to be pointlessly cruel.

    NoOoOo worries. "Sunflower" hasn't converted me into a Post Malone stan or anything I was pleasantly surprised by it, but I wouldn't say it's a "YOU MUST CHECK THIS OUT ASAP!" song.

    Exactly! Recommendations/discoveries are an important part of why I enjoy checking out personal charts, but there's usually music that I'm interested in on my own that takes priority over checking out suggestions from others. The "my" stuff, as you put it.

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike View Post

    Also, in addition to that, “God Is A Woman” crosses 1k points this week too while “Sweetener” should be her biggest album ever by next week or the week after – this really was a massive era for her on my charts!
    Woah! I mean, I guess I shouldn't be TOO shocked, since NTLTC was your No. 1 song of 2018...but it caught up to "Break Free"s points pretty fast, considering "Break Free" is several years older!

    Ah, the massive success of the Sweetener singles is especially interesting since I didn't think Sweetener overall was one of your favorite Ari albums...but it sounds like that's changed? Or is there a disconnect between the quality/enjoyment of the singles and the rest of the album?

    Looks like Ashley isn't ready to let go of the top spot quite yet!
    Billie hasn't really been on my radar (I gave "Lovely" a listen or two when people were charting it, but it wasn't something I'd put into high rotation myself). "Bury A Friend" is pretty intriguing, though! She certainly seems to have a lot of creativity/artistry. I'm all for talented young acts like herself bringing something fresh to the pop music scene.
    I got a little confused by some of the comments above, but I believe the ALMA you have at No. 25 is the same ALMA from Charli XCX's "Out Of My Head" and Clean Bandit's "In Us I Believe," yeah? The "When I Die" video is my first time actually seeing what she looks like/finally putting a face to her voice.
    I owe Akini for bringing "Bones" to my attention recently. It's a lot of toe-tapping, hand-clapping, sing-along fun! It really hooks me once that "if you're asking meEeEeE, oh how do you knoOoOoOw" part kicks in. How have OneRepublic fared here in the past?
    • I was a little surprised that "Anxiety" hasn't been charting at all, but I see Julia's EP doing alright here, so I guess that's just because "Anxiety" isn't technically a single?

    Yet another lovely chart, Tancel!

    Haha, yeah basically!
    Aw, that’s actually very sweet of you. I used to do that at the beginning of my first relationship, I even put a lot of work into these things but stopped doing these things. Maybe I should pick it up again as well.

    Yeah, I think I do talk often about him. But I also feel like I depend too much on him. Like, I still didn’t really figure it out to be independent in a relationship as well.

    Oh, Pentatonix sounds very interesting. How was that one? Ah yeah, I already forgot about Katy but now I just remembered that we were talking about that one. I get your point with the ticket prices though, they really increased a lot over the years and even ‘little’ artist cost a lot these days. But it’s a compensation for them, they need to earn more from touring as they don’t earn as much as a few years ago with CD sales.

It's an awesome feeling to know that people find you attractive and interesting, but craving that validation can lead to a nasty cycle pretty quickly. I think it's absolutely possible to use social media without it turning into something ugly and obsessive, but it's a tricky balance to achieve. The random, unprovoked negativity from strangers can be a real downer too. People use the anonymity as an opportunity to be pointlessly cruel.
    So true! Especially for the young(er) people it’s really like that. My father for example has Facebook but he only uses it to post some pics and especially to keep contacts with some of his old friends. And that was the original idea behind Facebook. Similar with Instagram, it was actually meant as something to share pictures but it turned into a ‘who has the most, who is the best’-kinda thing. The negativity you’re mentioning is also a thing that became a little phenomenon in the past few years, no idea why there are people who do that. I’d never post cruel comments on social media, first because that’s not nice and second because I’m simply not that cruel. I wonder if these people really are that cruel.

    Good to know

    We talked about this before, but I think for me personally it also has to do with streaming… since I discovered Apple Music for myself, there’s already a lot more that I’d like to check out for myself, so since then I’m also having less time to check other things out.

    Ah, the massive success of the Sweetener singles is especially interesting since I didn't think Sweetener overall was one of your favorite Ari albums...but it sounds like that's changed? Or is there a disconnect between the quality/enjoyment of the singles and the rest of the album?
    “No Tears” got a lot of points following a good Year-End effect, so yeah, it caught up pretty fast now. Also, don’t forget it’s about chart points, so once a song leaves my charts, it won’t get more points until it comes back, so even though “Break Free” came out many years ago, it didn’t get points in the last few years.

    Oh, good question – I guess I never said how I feel about “Sweetener” now, and it’s in fact my most favorite album ever by Ariana now. I love it so much. You’re right that I wasn’t too sure about it at first, especially because of the album tracks, but they all grew on me and what I love the most about “Sweetener” is how it flows so well as a whole but still has some fantastic standouts (= the singles). The new “thank u, next” is even more cohesive, but the standouts are missing for me (so far).

    Billie hasn't really been on my radar (I gave "Lovely" a listen or two when people were charting it, but it wasn't something I'd put into high rotation myself). "Bury A Friend" is pretty intriguing, though! She certainly seems to have a lot of creativity/artistry. I'm all for talented young acts like herself bringing something fresh to the pop music scene.
    I got a little confused by some of the comments above, but I believe the ALMA you have at No. 25 is the same ALMA from Charli XCX's "Out Of My Head" and Clean Bandit's "In Us I Believe," yeah? The "When I Die" video is my first time actually seeing what she looks like/finally putting a face to her voice.
    I owe Akini for bringing "Bones" to my attention recently. It's a lot of toe-tapping, hand-clapping, sing-along fun! It really hooks me once that "if you're asking meEeEeE, oh how do you knoOoOoOw" part kicks in. How have OneRepublic fared here in the past?
    • I was a little surprised that "Anxiety" hasn't been charting at all, but I see Julia's EP doing alright here, so I guess that's just because "Anxiety" isn't technically a single?

    Yet another lovely chart, Tancel!
    Not yet but maybe soon. It’s such a busy time at the moment… several of my most favorite artists keep on releasing singles. I mean, Ariana just released her album alongside a new single (Break Up…), Within Temptation just released a video for another single of their newly released album and Kerli also released a new single last Friday.

    Glad you checked out “Bury A Friend”! “Lovely” was… well, lovely. It’s incredible how young she still is yet she already has so much success. I’m looking forward to her debut album next month as I’m slowly getting more and more into her as an artist.

    You’re right about ALMA – it’s the singer from Finland who was featured on Charli’s and Clean Bandit’s songs. Ah, now I’m interested to hear if you imagined her differently?

    Good to hear you enjoyed listening to “Bones”. It’s definitely a nice song but nothing that really stands out for me. OneRepublic had several hits on my charts, but started to decline in the last few years. Here’s their Discography

    Hmm… yes, that’s one of the reasons, though I decided to be a bit more open about letting songs onto my charts (that was why “Imagine” debuted on the charts a few weeks ago but only like 1-2 weeks after its release). The main reason why “Anxiety” isn’t charting is because I think it’s very weak and definitely in the bottom 5 of the tracks with/by Selena that I know

    Thank you so much!

    Glad to hear that! I didn't hear the other entries for Melodifestivalen this year, but I loved Anna's last ESC entry so I checked "Ashes To Ashes" out. A shame she didn't qualify for the finale right away though.

    Hmmm...well, you live on your own, you have your own job/income, you have your own hobbies (like UKMIX and concerts), so you still sound pretty independent to me. In what ways do you feel you depend on him too much? Or is that something he said...?

    Eh, they're definitely talented, but it's hard to get SUPER excited about a bunch of acappella covers
    Glee was a bit different, since that was a weekly TV show with characters you grew to know/love, and the songs they covered often tied into the story arcs...but with Pentatonix, it was mostly just "cool, sounds great, but I'll go back to the original version now." It's impressive how massive they've becoming sticking mostly to covers (with a few original tunes sprinkled in), so kudos to them for finding such a winning formula!

    Yeah, Facebook has become SUCH a different beast over the past 15ish years. I remember needing a college email address to even join It's hard to know what all of those trolls are thinking, but for some of them, I imagine it's just a really easy opportunity to dump on other people instead of actually facing/dealing with their own problems. Making someone else feel worse online is a quick rush/cheap thrill and (briefly) distracts them from their own misery.

    That totally makes sense, and it's been similar for me! I've been checking out way more full albums compared to when I'd have to go out and purchase each new one individually.

    Makes sense. I guess I thought "Break Free" might've re-entered at least a few times over the years (since it seems like "Symphony" is always popping up again...)

    Woah! I didn't realize things had changed that much, but I'm glad you've developed such a fondness for Sweetener. It's probably still my least favorite of hers (too soon too tell with TUN) but it's certainly not a disaster, and there's plenty to enjoy beyond the solid singles (like "Goodnight N Go," "Everytime," "Better Off," "Get Well Soon").

    **Nod** She's done a great job building more and more buzz leading into her album release (especially with the timing of "Bury A Friend" and its video).

    Ha, well...I guess I expected closer to Charli XCX or Tove, since I associated her with the songs they've done together (and I think she even sounds a bit like Tove on the Clean Bandit track)...or closer to other European dance acts, like Inna.

The main reason why “Anxiety” isn’t charting is because I think it’s very weak and definitely in the bottom 5 of the tracks with/by Selena that I know
    Ouch...but I kind of feel you there. "Anxiety" deals with such a worthwhile subject, and the lyrics are really interesting/relatable...but, as a song overall, it just doesn't come together well. Julia seems to have a habit of trying to be more quirky/adventurous with her melodies/song structure (like on Selena's "Bad Liar," Lauv's "No Way," her own "Uh Huh," etc) which is commendable in a sense, but the end result doesn't always work well for me.


    Your No. 1 certainly has a cool intro (before it starts sounding more like I'd expect from a metal track) Sharon's voice is as lovely as ever too!
    Although I would've loved to see more Ari on your first singles chart after her album release, I am NOT feeling her single selections lately, so I can understand why she doesn't have anything inside your Top 5. I'm glad the public's eating them up (as they should've been doing for years now), but they're not Ari at her best for me.
    With certain albums/EPs stealing most of my attention lately, I haven't been checking out as many random new singles from other acts, but I might add "Who Do You Love?" to my library after giving it a quick listen now. I hope their momentum doesn't completely die again right after "Youngblood" became so huge...
    • Looks like Ari couldn't quite compete on your albums chart either. That's a rare miss for her here!

    Yet another chart that lights up my life, Tancel!

It's impressive how massive they've becoming sticking mostly to covers (with a few original tunes sprinkled in), so kudos to them for finding such a winning formula!
    Ah, I get your point! As you know (I guess?) my partner has an acapella band and he’s quite a big Pentatonix fan, so that’s probably one of the reasons why I got a little bit more into the band as of lately. Funny that you’re mentioning Glee as I was randomly watching a few videos about the show on YouTube over the weekend (like some ranking videos about the best performances and stuff like that). That was a hype that completely missed me back then, but it also wasn’t that popular over here while from what I remember it was HUGE in the US. As for the success, I feel like that’s also slowing down lately, I think they’re already past of their peak (it also doesn’t help they basically released or re-released a Christmas album for like five consecutive years now).

    Oh really? Haha… honestly, I’ve only joined in 2010, so I was actually ‘very’ late with Facebook (compared to most other people around my/our age). True. I just wonder if they’re really thinking like that or if they just like it that they can throw some shade towards others without consequences.

    I’m asking because I still haven’t figured it out if I like that or not…

    Quote Originally Posted by phoenix98 View Post

    Interestingly, it only re-entered once for four weeks, I think it was following the Manchester terrorist attack. Nothing ever since… maybe later this year following a concert effect.

    Ok, so while you’re surprised that it’s my favorite album of hers, I’m surprised it’s your least favorite! First, to be honest, her discography is already so strong, so it’s really tough to say which one is the best and worst. Second, it’s the most recent one (“Thank U, Next” is still too new IMO) so that usually gives it a bonus. Maybe I’ll think differently in a few years.
    I also need to revisit “Yours Truly” as I usually pay that one dust.

    Ah, sounds comprehensibly.

    Did you check out some stuff from their last album “Oh My My”?
    Haha yeah, “Counting Stars” was a beast. The first time I heard it I fell in love with it and was so happy when they released it as a single a few weeks later. It’s one of the songs that crossed 1,000 points on my charts

    Hm. I forgot to mention that I actually love the message of the song, but as you say, as a song overall it does nothing for me. It’s so sad, as ‘Anxiety’ would be a fantastic theme for a song and they could have made a strong pop tune out of this.

    Thanks a lot for checking it out <3

    Good to hear that about the latest singles by Ariana, as I’m feeling completely the same. This era seems kinda lackluster when it comes to them, especially compared to the amazing single choices of her last three albums. I feel kinda sad these are the songs the public gets to know the most now, as she had so many gems in her discography yet it’s “7 Rings” or “Break Up…” that become her biggest hits?

    Nice that you’re enjoying “Who Do You Love?”. Unfortunately, after just one week, I’m already quite over it. I feel like The Chainsmokers became too predictable. I do wish it will end up as a hit though simply because of 5 Seconds Of Summer.

    Yes, it is. But it adds to the current picture on the singles charts. #2 may end up as its peak as someone else is releasing an album this week and something magical has to happen otherwise a #1 debut for that new release is 100% safe based on anticipation alone.

    Thank you so much <3

    It is, glad you're enjoying it as well! As for Amy, it's actually a best of with just two new songs, so not much new material. But I love it, it's good to have all of her hits on one record and I didn't play some of her older songs for a long time, so this best of was a good opportunity to get back into her stuff

    nice debut for 'LAST HURRAH', really excited for new stuff by Bebe!
    also great to see 'HEAD ABOVE WATER' debuting pretty high... I think it's a decent record
    And the day came when the risk it took to remain tightly closed in a bud was more painfully than the risk it took to bloom

    "Super Queen" definitely isn't as fabulous as "Kitty Girl", but it's not awful. "Supernova" is good, though. I added it to my Spotify library. The other debuts in your top 5 are good. I was elated that Years & Years and MNEK teamed up! I don't think "365" is special, but it's cute.

    "Last Hurrah" is a song I liked more than I thought I would. "Dumb Blonde" is meh. "Please Me" is forgettable.

    Quite predictably, my favourite song on your chart, by some margin, is "God Is a Woman". Glad it's stuck around after all these months.

    also great to see 'HEAD ABOVE WATER' debuting pretty high... I think it's a decent record
    Glad you're enjoying "Last Hurrah" as well! It's another great pop song and I hope she keeps on doing these pure pop bops!
    It is... though I don't like it as much as her previous albums. I probably need a few more spins

    Cute song, I like this collab.
    Good to hear you're liking this collaboration! A shame it seems to be a complete flop, even in the UK
