Already

And the second week of 2017 already gone by! Isn’t it crazy how time just flies? I hope everyone made the most of it like me! Well I probably tried a bit too hard, as it ultimately resulted in me spending the day in bed today, being completely run down with this damn cold! Fingers crossed that I am on the mend and back in full action next week!

Nonetheless I did take time to give you this weeks charts! Hopefully you all have noticed that a few changes took place, most notably with Ed Sheeran being the highest entry with ‘Castle On The Hill’ climbing onto the 7th spot.

There’s also someone in the Top 20 this week who has climbed up to All Time Number 1 in the pre-disaster ehCharts time. For the new joiners I will shed a tiny bit of light on it for you. I’m talking of course about Dolly Parton’s ‘Baby’ I’m Burnin” who just surprised me this week (once again) and rightfully deserves her 15th place. I could elaborate more but as mentioned above I’m still not 100% and will save my energy for next week – promise!

Surely

‘Crazy Youngsters’ by the Pitch Perfect 2 cast manages to hold tight onto Number 1 for a second week in a row. The Troublemakers also keep their second position from last week to fight off an attempt from Sweden’s newcomer duo Samir & Viktor and their smash hit ‘Success’

Neil Diamond’s ‘Cherry, Cherry’ definitely deserves the award for most surprising entry in this weeks Top 20 with entering at number 6 making it the highest new entry, though it seems almost like it opened a floodgate for ‘new’ songs in the charts such as ‘Word Of Mouth’ by Mike & The Mechanics on number 7 or the the 90’s hit ‘Sweat (Ah La La Long)’ by Inner Circle at number 19.

It surely is a week with a variety of styles and ‘Ain’t Nobody’ by Felix Jaehn & Jasmine Thompson is just another example for the broad taste of mine, though reading the comments on the video there are quite a few pro’s and con’s which I didn’t expect, but I guess everybody can judge for themselves. I also wonder if ‘Jump’ by the Pointer sisters is featured on a few athletes iPod’s after their week at the IAAF athletic world championships in Beijing. Who knows!

Laziness

A lot has happened since my last entry 132 days ago. Yes my dear readers from all over the world it is that long ago!

To be honest I am not even sure why I haven’t posted my weekly top 20. I guess I could blame my own pure laziness which over the past couple of months has overtaken my life in all sorts of aspects such as swim training, consumption of alcohol, gym and obviously not in a good way.

The only part where I haven’t been lazy is actually work which finally got rewarded 1.5 weeks ago with me being recognised within the firm with an award for outstanding customer service! Oh and I have travelled a bit as well and explored new destinations such as Miami, Las Vegas, Philadelphia the states of Tennessee and Kentucky. There will be more inside info to come over the next couple of weeks, with special mention of Dollywood (another childhood dream come true) of course!

But a key event happened two weeks ago which kind of opened my eyes and has changed my perception/view on certain things in life! So I do think I’m back on track and getting back to my old self which FINALLY has resulted in getting my lazy ass in front of the computer and show you the latest chart movements and from now on hopefully with some continuity again!

Before I give you the run down of the latest Top 20 I shall reveal the current standing after 34 weeks so far in 2014.

 

No. 5

Little Mix has entered ehCharts on the 15th of June and ‘Black Magic’ went straight to the top spot where it remained for 5 consecutive weeks. It was one of those Sunday’s were the song was played on TV and it just got stuck in my mind. A catchy perfect pop song which should have been released earlier to be even more successful than it has been.

 

 

No. 4

Do you remember a couple of months ago when I thought that ‘House Party’ by Sam Hunt could potentially become song of the year? Well things change fast in the world of music and even on ehCharts.com as the current 4th position just shows. Let’s see if in the remainder of the year the country newcomer can change this somehow!

 

 

No. 3

Lithuania’s Eurovision Entry suddenly developed to one of the biggest surprise hits of the year! Not only is has it stayed 3 weeks at Number one, but it also has stayed in the Top 20 since the Grand Final back in May and is a hot contender for the song of 2015, because the top 3 currently are very close together point wise and Monika + Vaidas certainly know how to entertain. A shame they didn’t get more recognition on the actual final in Vienna!

 

 

No. 2

A group name with Dolly in it is kind of automatically bound for success! 7 Weeks Number 1 (the longest so far) which would have also been a great Eurovision Entry for Sweden this year (but failed narrowly by literally a couple of votes in their pre-selection to advance further) is granted to ‘Hello Hi’ by Dolly Style. It is fighting for the overall top spot which is still up for grabs and by the looks of it ‘cheesy’ pop music is currently on the rise again. Nonetheless a great catchy pop song!

 

 

No. 1

A song first ‘discovered’ by me way before it became popular in Europe is currently leading ehCharts 2015. It recently has dropped out of the Top 20 but it’s 31 weeks in the charts and two of them being number 1 is giving OMI and ‘Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix) a well deserved lead and as the current Top 20 proves RE-ENTRIES are possible at anytime for any song and artist!

Pitch Perfect 2 has definitely had a big impact over the past two weeks culminating by climbing to this weeks Number 1 position with the incredible good feel song ‘Crazy Youngsters’ fighting off the Troublemakers (also featured in Pitch Perfect 2) with Lollipop which – a couple of years back – had been a huge success for pop sensation Mika.

 

Sweden is having a blast this year. Special mention goes to Samir & Victor (who also tried to represent their country at this years Eurovision Song Contest)! Their smash hit ‘Success’ remains steady in the charts and is just outside this years Top 10 after currently 9 weeks. A fun tune which will get everyone moving – hands down, not just because they’re good looking – well one of them. And on that note thanks for stopping by!
