Five

I know it has been quite a while since I had the time to show you the latest from the world of ehCharts. However I have been a bit busy in terms of swimming and getting back into shape plus in all honesty updating the website from an iPad is not much fun!

On the plus side I am happy to announce that I managed to get hold of a new computer and can get back to ‘normal’. Saying that I have maintained the Top 20 in a regular fashion for the last five weeks and therefore can bring you guys up to date.

Most importantly to note is that since the last update there have been two No. 1’s and both are related to an incredible Melodifestivalen Final which took place in Sweden’s capital Stockholm! The rest you can see from the charts below as I don’t want to bore you with too many boring details. Enjoy

Philosophical

And another week has gone by super quick … not to sound sentimental or philosophical but to me it feels that time goes faster the older you get. Maybe I’m just tired! But I still owe you last weeks Top20. Not much movement in the Top positions but you’ll see quite a few ‘new’ entries, the highest being Alabama’s ‘Can’t Keep A Good Man Down’ at number 4. Sweden’s Melodifestivalen continues to be a strong provider of great tunes like ‘Habibi’ by Dolly Style sneaking in at Number 10. Quite a few countries have decided their Eurovision songs for this year and I’m almost certain that this will be reflected in next weeks charts. However this means that Kenneth can cling onto number 1 for a second week in a row with his Astro Bot soundtrack song!

Literally

It’s been a tough few days for me as I was in Germany for a little swimming training camp so today I’ll keep it short and simple and literally just show you my top 20 without a big story, which I hope is ok. I’m sure it is as it will give you more time to soak in the latest trends in ehCharts.

Can

Sometimes ‘Spring’ clean outs can be very beneficial and in this case almost be a bit of a miracle! I came across two old laptops of mine, which I totally had forgotten about and believe it or not they do contain some old chart stuff! They contain stats and lists I thought I had lost forever! Okay it is not the entire list from 2001-2014 but a good 8.5 years worth of music memories!!!

This means I will be able to do a bit of a ‘flashback’ today to what was Number 1 Ten(!) years ago! And in a surprise look back it was ‘Same Jeans’ by The View which actually dethroned the almighty Dolly Parton and her smash hit ‘Baby I’m Burning’ that week.

Fast Forward to 2017 and you’ll also find last week’s Number One dethroned. Spain’s Mirela keeps it with the Eurovision family though and I still think ‘Contigo’ should be going to Kiev instead of Manuel Navarro’s ‘Do It For Your Lover’.

This week also see’s the return of Little Mix being the highest entry with ‘Your Love’ since their very successful pop songs ‘Black Magic’ & ‘Shout Out To My Ex’.

It is also interesting to see that only 5 ‘original’ songs from the first week remain in the Top 20! What a week this has been! So happy!

No. 1 Ten Years Ago!

First

Sorry for being a day later than usual, but I literally just got back from my first trip abroad of 2017! I had good intentions yesterday when I was preparing to post ‘live’ from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, but I decided not to in the end (maybe I had too much wine!).

Anyway week Number 3 has passed and so has another week of Enrico’s Hitlist or better now known as ehcharts and we have a new number one! Saraha from Sweden who was denied to represent the country at last year’s Eurovision Song Contest pushed her way to the top spot with ‘Kizunguzungu’ leaving the highest new entry ‘Said No One Ever’ by Jana Kramer in her wake. Not sure how many of you remember my pre-robbery time but Saraha’s song does remind me a tiny bit of Norway’s entry from 2011 called ‘Haba Haba’.

Thanks to my recent long-haul flights to the US I was able to pick up a few new songs who featured in movies I was able to watch, such as ‘The Secret Life Of Pets’! Although I wasn’t travelling to New York (I went to St Louis/Missouri) the song somehow stuck with me mainly because of its catchiness.

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!

Music

One of my favourite announcements on TV is when the guy on X-Factor says ‘It’s Time To Face The Music’. And that’s exactly what I am going to do. As previously announced 2017 is going to be the proper revival of ehCharts!

And yes to start from scratch again is going to look a bit dull in the first week, though I’m afraid I do have to start somewhere like I did with this first time around an incredible 16(!) years ago.

I can still remember my first ever number 1 back in 2001. It sometimes feels like it was just yesterday, when the 2000 Sydney Olympics finished and Vanessa Amorosi’s ‘Absolutely Everybody’ went to the top and became one of the best songs of 2001.

But that was 2001 – time to fast forward to now, 2017 and my first number one was actually featured in the opening sequence of a movie I recently watched. ‘Angel Of The Morning’ by Juice Newton might have been already around in 2006 though this was the first time round I heard this song. It instantly stuck in my head and fought off the competition with ease. So thank you ‘Deadpool’ (that’s the name of the film) for introducing me to this one!

My recent visit to Germany over Christmas has also given me the chance to buy a DVD set of my favourite Anime series called ‘Mila Superstar’ which I have been binge watching over the past two weeks. It is not really known in the English world (unless you are a hardcore Anime/Manga fan) but I kind of grew up with this show and it brought back brilliant memories of my childhood. It also is still surprisingly motivating and has already helped me through some tough swim/gym sessions this week! Anyway it is therefore no surprise that the main song ‘Atakku No. 1’ performed by Kurumi Kobato sneaks in at No. 3!

This week did not just see Sweden’s Saraha occupying a Top 10 position with the Eurovision pre-entry song ‘Kizunguzungu’ (on 2). It also has Bardo who represented the United Kingdom in 1982 with their entry called ‘One Step Further’, a song I just recently started listening too and is actually quite catchy!

And even I sometimes can’t escape the current trends in the music industry as Entry Number 19 is clear evidence for this. ‘Sexual’ by Neiked & Dyo is a prime example of a potentially bad tune though you’re getting used to it as it is played over and over again on the radio. But I’ll let you be the judge of that and leave you on that note until next week.
