This week has been influenced by the 22nd Olympic Winter Games currently taking place in the russian city of Sochi. I am saying that, because after an incredible abstinence of thirteen years, Peter Tchaikowsky manages to re-enter The Top 20 with his ‘Russian Dance’ famously known through the Nutcracker Suite. It is a fabulous piece of music and it was wonderfully used during the Opening Ceremony when an amazing display of fireworks took place after the flame was lid by Russian legends Irina Rodnina and Vladislav Tretiak. This just shows you how diverse Enrico’s Hitlist can be. Regardless of the ‘shortage’ of this song it most certainly deserves a place in this weeks charts.
Back to the 21st century and a more current track, despite the great usage of violin melodies which kind of gives it a classical touch at the very beginning! Having spent another week on top of the UK charts I only got hold of it this week and it has been growing on me, hence why the highest debut this week to Clean Bandit & Jess Glynne with ‘Rather Be’!
Biggest move this week goes to a Netflix related song called ‘Stars’ by Youngblood Hawke, which gained a massive ten places and moves up into the Top 10. A very laid back song which just brings you down to earth somehow if you just close your eyes and listen to it!

For once I have been right with a song choice for Eurovision! Not sure if you remember, but a few weeks ago I already had Firelight with ‘Coming Home’ in my charts. Not only did the group re-enter the charts again this week, they were also chosen to represent Malta in Copenhagen later on this year! Not to brag, but I do feel very happy about this little prediction and me being kind of a trend setter!!! I like that it has this country feel to it!
Looking back in in time Enrico’s Hitlist I would like to mention ‘Human’ by the Killers which has been in the Top 20 fifteen weeks in total since it’s first appearance on the 9th of February 2009. It has scored 144 points so far which places them on the all time rank 349, which – out of 2061 songs to date – is a pretty good achievement.
