2014 – The 1st

Here we are again! I can’t believe how fast it has come around, and yes I know that I am a little bit delayed with the first weeks charts. I did however have a valid reason not to post anything this past Sunday, due to an unforced hospital visit which I would have preferred to avoid! So far I shall just mention it was unpleasant but I do think I am on the mend and let me assure you, it didn’t stop me from doing the first weeks Top 20 of 2014! Below a few snippets out of this week’s charts!

And we already starting the year with a brand new number 1. Mika – after his success with ‘Popular Song’ in 2013 – manages to dethrone UK X-Factor champ Sam Bailey with his ‘brand new’ single ‘Emily’. I am saying new, because the song was previously released I think in 2010, but for some reason I missed out on it. Nevertheless it sure deserves to be on the top spot to give this year a good start! By the way it is the 299th Number 1 to reach the Top Spot!!!

Some minor success last year was written on both Pitbull & Ke$ha’s forehead and they are starting 2014 with a fulminant debut on number 4 and their song called ‘Timber’ which is not just seeing a high chart position in Enrico’s Hitlist! It also does very well around the globe and looks like the first trendsetter of the year! A very entertaining video.

Although it is always a possibility, but no, the Eurythmics haven’t managed to re-enter Enrico’s Hitlist this week. I would like to do however a little look back on entries which entered around this time in previous years and ‘Love Is A Stranger’ became a massive hit for this group in the Top 20 twelve (!) years ago. That’s right! It entered the charts on the 30/12/2002! Out of 2041 listed songs it is ranked Number 155 having scored 238 points over it’s 16 weeks in the charts, two of whom were at the top position! Enjoy the video and this week’s Top 20!
