‘Goodness Gracious’ was probably going through Ellie Gouldings mind when she realised she wouldn’t make it to number 1 this week after being overtaken in a last minute move by Slovenian singer Natalija Verboten! ‘Ma Kje Si Ti’ becomes the 302nd Number 1 song to reach the top of Enrico’s Hitlist.
It is one of the songs you suddenly stumble across on YouTube purely by coincidence and it is one of those tunes instantly stuck in your head. Well it certainly got my attention especially since to me it is a pretty good mixture of pop, country, folk and schlager or short just a very easy listening track! The video is quite entertaining as well. As of this moment I think it will stick around for a while, but who knows!
Well, I guess I should also learn some ‘Slovene’ since Natalija Verboten has had another song entering Enrico’s Hitlist at Number 4 just missing out on the bronze medal position – sorry I couldn’t resist to make a reference to the Winter Olympics in Sochi! Nevertheless ‘Zapoj Slovenija’ was initially seen as the new Number 1 song this week, but lost some of its appeal during the week gone.
And since we are in Europe (I’m referring to Slovenia), I might as well give some attention to Spain’s representative at this years Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen/Denmark! ‘Dancing In The Rain’ representing Spain (read it out loud and it will make you smile too!) should be well perceived in the UK this year, given the shitty weather we had lately! However, it’s a second year in a row Spain has success in Enrico’s Hitlist with one of their entries, which is pretty rare. Not sure it will become a number one like last years ‘Contigo Hasta El Final’ by ESDM though Ruth Lorenzo is still a great entry despite some of the negative comments she already had.

And here is something from the past. ‘I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)’ by George Michael & Aretha Franklin entered ehcharts on the 23rd of February 2009 and remained in the Top 20 for 16 weeks so far. It has scored 172 points which ranks it at Number 265 out of currently 2063 songs! A pretty impressive ranking. Enjoy this fab collaboration!
