Again

Dolly Style with ‘Hello Hi’ are holding on to Number 1 for an incredible fifth week now in a row, defending off another attack from ‘Really Don’t Care’ by Demi Lovato & Cher Lloyd!

However a catchy pop song from India becomes this weeks highest entry at Number 3! ‘Yaari Yaari’ by Purani Jeans follows into the footsteps of Slumdog Millionaire which back in the days scored lots of points with songs featured in the movie, i.e. ‘Latika’s Theme’ & ‘Millionaire’! This shows you again how versatile my charts can be!

Noteworthy this week is the biggest gainer to be found at number 9! And again(!) it is a hit I predicted a while ago which will you believe it had to be rush released due to popular demand. I’m still not sure why the UK is so behind OMI’s ‘Cheerleader’, as it has already been a big success across Scandinavia, other parts of Europe and Australia!

One song – which sneaks in at Number 8 – will probably do really well in the UK once it is released and if it does be assured I’ll rub it in! ‘Bills’ by American Rapper Lunch Money Lewis is not a typical rap song and I guess because of the way it’s done it’s just hard to resist not to like it and everyone can relate to it as well!

Enough

‘Hello Hi’ by Swedish Pop Trio Dolly Style is holding on to the top spot for an incredible fourth week in a row, which means it still was not enough for Demi Lovato & Cher Lloyd to claim the throne in this weeks charts!

You will also see, that slowly but steadily ‘Popular’ by the Glee Cast is climbing up the latter and settles at the 4th position just behind this weeks highest entry (and rightfully predicted last week) ‘Heartbeat Song’ by US Idol winner Kelly Clarkson. But who am I kidding – these are my charts, so I kind of do decide who is entering and who isn’t!

So it also doesn’t come at a surprise that ZZ Ward with ‘Put The Gun Down’ is debuting at number 7 this week, just having recently seen ‘We’re The Miller’s’!

Last surprise entry of the week is to be found at number 16, a song which was featured on the BBC’s ‘Eurovision’s Greatest’ Hits’. ‘The Lord Of The Dance’ by Irish Dances was just an interval act at the ESC 21 (!) years ago but certainly took the world by storm and the performance on the show certainly had an impact on me! On that dancing note I wish you all a Happy Easter!

Strong

Dolly Style still looking strong with ‘Hello Hi’ clinging onto the top spot for the third consecutive week, fighting off a strong ‘Really Don’t Care’ by Demi Lovato & Cher Lloyd, having to settle for silver.

This all happened in a week which saw One Direction losing one of its members, an awful plane crash in the French Alps and me doing 9 workouts in a week, which I call an achievement, as I haven’t worked out this hard since 2012!!

I also feel a bit proud having correctly predicted that ‘Hold My Hand’ by Jess Glynne would be a future hit, as it debuted at Number 1 in the UK charts, though it only is good enough for the 4th place in my charts this week. Sorry Jess! Glee does demonstrate its strengths having two songs in the Top 5, with ‘I Lived’ & ‘Popular’ being ranked 3 and 5 respectively.

World known Country star Garth Brooks is the only new entrant this week with ‘The River’ sneaking in at number 6, which compared to most of the songs at the moment is a rather quiet but yet beautiful composed country-pop ballad.

This will highly likely be featured in next weeks charts, so stay tuned !

GleeGoodbye

It is late I’m afraid and I need to cut things short, though I might do a mid-week tribute about Glee, which over the last six years (can you believe it?!) has had quite an impact in my charts. So it is no surprise that after the series finale ‘I Lived’ has stormed to Number two, almost taking  down ‘Hello Hi’ by Dolly Style!

Glee will always remain special to me, as it – in my opinion – always managed to make ‘old school songs’ popular again or at least get people talking about them. Best example obviously is ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey which surprisingly enough never did that well in my charts. Nonetheless other songs did and just this week shows the producers and writers did incredibly well, despite the show’s decline since season 3! Glee will definitely be missed and I will pay tribute at some point. So this is it #GleeGoodbye!

Dolly

Sweden always has been good with their song choice for Eurovision, and I only got into it this week, as Melodifestivalen was down to select the entrant for Vienna 2015 and as we all know ABBA – back then – was one of those groups becoming one of the biggest acts in the pop/music industry … However it was not the winner gaining my attention! Instead it was Dolly Style and their incredibly well performed ‘Hello Hi’ which stormed to Number One this week. It is a very endearing catchy pop song, which I think will do well this year at ehCharts.com!

This brings me to the second highest entry this week – and no surprise – another participant to become Sweden’s representative at the Eurovision Song Contest this year Eric Saade. ‘Sting’ makes its debut at Number 6 and after listening to it for quite some time I do think the beginning sounds way to close to ‘Call Me Maybe’, a major hit by Carly Rae Jepson a few years ago, don’t you agree?!

It has been a while since Pink was seen in my charts, but for some reason ‘The Truth About Love’ has hit a nerve this week and a respectable seventh position is the ultimate result.

C.J.Lewis with ‘Sweets For My Sweet’ is probably another surprise entry this week which out of the blue caught my attention and given it is from 1994 rank number 16 is a pretty good place to be!

Jazz

ehCharts did see an influx in Jazz music this week it seems, though Jess Glynne manages to successfully defend her Number 1 position for a second week in a row with ‘Hold My Hand’.

Dutch Pop & Jazz Queen Caro Emerald, more notably known for her smash hit ‘Stuck’ debuts at a respectable Number 2 with ‘No Charge’ and in her wake she lets another Jazz-like song sweep in at rank 6 which happens to represent the United Kingdom in this years Eurovision Song Contest! I guess ‘Still In Love With You’ will widely divide peoples opinions though I think it has pretty good chances in the grand Finale taking place in Vienna on the 23rd of May!

Not sure why, but for some reason ‘I Can’t Go For That/You Make My Dreams’ performed by the Glee Cast caught my attention again this week and sneaks in at Number 5! It is extremely catchy though and the video funny to watch plus it features Idina Menzel, famously known for ‘Let It Go’.

Last but not least I do have to mention one of the most famous Japanese Anime’s. NEON GENESIS EVANGELION, an incredibly well done series 26 episodes long from the 90’s. Their Opening Theme (actually called ‘Zankoku Na Tenshi No These’) sung by Yoko Takahashi is this weeks greatest gainer climbing up 5 positions into the Top 10 in it’s tenth week success!

I know I was bragging on about my six times a week working out last week, but I actually manage to do it seven times this week which I’m very proud about and even more happy to actually already see some results! More to follow!!

Future

First day of March and what can I say, besides me (probably foolishly) thinking that I might have discovered a future hit! Out of nowhere did Jess Glynne appear with her catchy pop song ‘Hold My Hand’ and stormed to the Top spot to become the 7th Number One in 2015 so far! This left Italy’s Giusy Ferreri reeling to a disappointing (for her) second position with ‘Ma Il Cielo è Sempre Più Blu’.

Various countries across Europe have chosen their songs for this years Eurovision Song Contest, however only one country managed to convince me with their choice. ‘The Winner’ goes to Hungary’s Boggie with ‘Wars For Nothing’ – a very calm pop ballad which almost reminded me of Russia’s ‘What If’ by Dina Garipova back in 2013! Though a higher ranking than the 12th place could not be justified due to the late entry.

Slovenia did chose their song as well, but instead of the winner, I was happy to discover a kind of folk/country yet very catchy song which debuted at number 4 this week. Gadi’s ‘Daj Mi Daj Mi Daj’ relativised the whopping results of Nina Pušlar who has to settle for 7th and 14th place this week.

Not music related but yet worthy to announce is that I managed for the first time in a very long time to hit the gym and do 5 workouts this past week (including swim training) which makes me very happy (and achy right now) as I haven’t done this in a very long time due to various injuries. Stay tuned for more updates on this, but in the meantime enjoy the music!!!
