It has been 853 days since Wilson Phillips stormed to number 1 with ‘Hold On’. And now 2 years, 4 months and 2 days later Glee climbs up to the top spot to become the 303rd number one in Enrico’s Hitlist with their very own brilliantly done version of this classic. For some who want do do the calculations. 21/11/2011 was when Wilson Phillips entered the Top 20. Though I might risk of being a spoiler to some of you, I have decided selfishly to present the Glee version to you and make up your own mind about this amazing tune.
The highest entry this week though belongs to Eurovision. It has been a while since we last saw a Dutch entry in the Top 20. ‘Calm After The Storm’ sung by the Common Linnets will be representing the Netherlands in Copenhagen in roughly two months time and I believe this song will do great, well I hope so. Some of you might recognise the female singer and yes Ilse De Lange has had an appearance in my charts back in 2008 with ‘So Incredible’.
Just looking at the ‘So Incredible’ video I actually see similarities to the de-throned Natalija Verboten’s video of ‘Ma Kje Si Ti’ which sadly loses the top position after 4 weeks being number one. Don’t you think so as well? Not necessarily the melody, but the theme, country style, guitar etc. Maybe it is just my crazy imagination. Despite that though, it is a great song!
