Dolly

Sweden always has been good with their song choice for Eurovision, and I only got into it this week, as Melodifestivalen was down to select the entrant for Vienna 2015 and as we all know ABBA – back then – was one of those groups becoming one of the biggest acts in the pop/music industry … However it was not the winner gaining my attention! Instead it was Dolly Style and their incredibly well performed ‘Hello Hi’ which stormed to Number One this week. It is a very endearing catchy pop song, which I think will do well this year at ehCharts.com!

This brings me to the second highest entry this week – and no surprise – another participant to become Sweden’s representative at the Eurovision Song Contest this year Eric Saade. ‘Sting’ makes its debut at Number 6 and after listening to it for quite some time I do think the beginning sounds way to close to ‘Call Me Maybe’, a major hit by Carly Rae Jepson a few years ago, don’t you agree?!

It has been a while since Pink was seen in my charts, but for some reason ‘The Truth About Love’ has hit a nerve this week and a respectable seventh position is the ultimate result.

C.J.Lewis with ‘Sweets For My Sweet’ is probably another surprise entry this week which out of the blue caught my attention and given it is from 1994 rank number 16 is a pretty good place to be!

Jazz

ehCharts did see an influx in Jazz music this week it seems, though Jess Glynne manages to successfully defend her Number 1 position for a second week in a row with ‘Hold My Hand’.

Dutch Pop & Jazz Queen Caro Emerald, more notably known for her smash hit ‘Stuck’ debuts at a respectable Number 2 with ‘No Charge’ and in her wake she lets another Jazz-like song sweep in at rank 6 which happens to represent the United Kingdom in this years Eurovision Song Contest! I guess ‘Still In Love With You’ will widely divide peoples opinions though I think it has pretty good chances in the grand Finale taking place in Vienna on the 23rd of May!

Not sure why, but for some reason ‘I Can’t Go For That/You Make My Dreams’ performed by the Glee Cast caught my attention again this week and sneaks in at Number 5! It is extremely catchy though and the video funny to watch plus it features Idina Menzel, famously known for ‘Let It Go’.

Last but not least I do have to mention one of the most famous Japanese Anime’s. NEON GENESIS EVANGELION, an incredibly well done series 26 episodes long from the 90’s. Their Opening Theme (actually called ‘Zankoku Na Tenshi No These’) sung by Yoko Takahashi is this weeks greatest gainer climbing up 5 positions into the Top 10 in it’s tenth week success!

I know I was bragging on about my six times a week working out last week, but I actually manage to do it seven times this week which I’m very proud about and even more happy to actually already see some results! More to follow!!

Amazed

I am actually quite amazed with myself about the continuation so far of this website, besides it’s flaws last year! I do have to say this, because usually once I start projects I never seem to be able to follow them through, though my very own take on Music has somehow enabled me to keep going and I raise a glass (a la Pink!) on my 100th update on ehcharts.com.

Giusy Ferreri – who I was told this week has been a former X-Factor contestant in Italy – surely will be happy to retain her top spot for a second week in a row with ‘Ma Il Cielo è Sempre Più Blu’ fighting off yet another Eurovision contestant! Lithuania will be represented in Vienna by Monika Lynké & Vaidas Baumila and their incredibly catchy song ‘This Time’. Not to put any criticism out there, but it does show similarities to Malta’s entry from 2014 called ‘Coming Home’ by Firelight, putting some country twist into it! Regardless I like it and the 2nd position is well deserved!

Almost connected to the Eurovision Contest is Slovenia’s hot new entry at number three this week. Almost because she only came second in the EMA 2010, which acts as Slovenia’s festival to select their entry for the ESC. Nonetheless not only does Nina Pušlar claim a bronze medal with ‘Kdo Misliš, Da Si’, she also sneaks in on the 7th position with ‘Poljub Na Klopci’.

As we know Glee is in it’s final season and though recently I praised the show with the way they cover songs, I do now think the impact they had with their music has weakened and no serious effort is being put into the songs anymore. It is therefore no big surprise that ‘All Out Of Love’ – despite being a fabulous song – only enters at a disappointing 19th position!

Including

Of course I need to open this week with the EBU (European Broadcasting Union) including Australia into this years Eurovision Song Contest! A very big move which I thought would stir up a bit more uproar however even the news channels of the world have been playing it down slightly. Nonetheless I am excited about it and hope SBS will select a great entry! If it would have been in 2007 I am sure they would have won with ‘Lights Surrounding You’ by Evermore (You can find this amazing pop ballad further down and do enjoy!).

You will see, that this week has seen quite an ‘international’ development in the Top 20! Foremost a new number one, coming fresh from Italy (and no it is not their entry for Vienna!). Giusy Ferreri’s ‘Ma Il Cielo è Sempre Più Blu’ has literally stormed to Number 1 and easily made Olly Murs & Demi Levatos success from last week with ‘Up’ very short lived indeed as they have to be satisfied with the second place. I might be crazy but I do think Giusy’s song does have a few similarities with Kate Nash’s ‘Do-Wah-Doo’!

I also would like to point to some new discoveries coming from Denmark in form of Cisilia’s ‘Vi To Datid Nu’ and ‘Às Vezes’ by D.A.M.A from Portugal debuting at number 4 and 5 respectively. Other than that it is quite interesting to see Helene Fischer still climbing and actually reaching the Top 10 again! And last but not least Glee is on a cover mission again and ‘All About That Bass’ – a massive hit by Meghan Trainor – sneaks in at Number 19. Now I wonder what next week has to offer!

Before I forget, I would like to thank the new viewers from Yemen, Peru, Croatia, Thailand and India for visiting!

2014 – The 4th

What an odd week this one was! Not so much in my personal life but more chart wise, as you may see below. The only two colours are blue and red. Blue in this week’s top 20 doesn’t even stand for any climbs, it purely indicates that there are 8(!) new entries, including a new Number One!

As special as last week’s 300th number one was, it already lost some appeal and made room for  ‘We Are Broken’ by a group called  This Silent War! A contributing factor might have been this song being featured in the ABC Family drama series ‘The Fosters’! It’s a beautiful peace of music.

This Silent War – We Are Broken

Coinciding with Australia Day, the second highest entry this week goes to Taylor Henderson and a smash hit from Oz called ‘Borrow My Heart’

Initially I thought ‘Stand By Me’ by Ben E. King would have had some chart presence over the past 14 years of Enrico’s Hitlist’s existence. However it turns out it never made it into the official Top 20, albeit being very popular in general over the past few decades. Did you know that the song has been recorded/covered over 400 times according to Wikipedia?!

And a quick look back –  some people might call it ‘throwback Sunday’ – to this week eleven years ago! That’s right folks, Grease managed to sneak into the Top 20 on the 20th of January 2003 with ‘You’re The One That I Want’. Not only did this song entered the charts, it also debuted at Number 1! Enjoy this fabulous song and this weeks charts!

SPECIAL – 2014 – The 3rd

A few of you might wonder, why this big announcement about being special! A few might also think that I’m a bit too crazy about it, however I am happy to announce that Paul Evans has become Enrico’s 300th (!) Number One Hit with a song called ‘Hello, This Is Joanie’. It was released originally back in 1979 by this american rock and roll singer and songwriter. 35 years later I happen to watch an old broadcast of ‘Top Of The Pops’ and suddenly it’s stuck in my head! It’s also known as the Telephone Answering Machine Song! Very catchy indeed! Look and enjoy!! I might actually try and sing this tune and save it as my voicemail …

 

And we have another new entry on Number 13 which has also entered the UK Top 40 this week – what a coincidence! Elyar Fox manages to make a fine debut with his single ‘Do It All Over Again’. Nice video! I do sometimes wonder where these people suddenly come from! Well, I also say: keep them coming!!!

2014 – The 2nd

Today I’ve decided to let the charts speak by itself, as they are – if I am not mistaken – kind of self explanatory! Surely you can see recognise that Celine Dion’s ‘Thank You’ can be thankful to be still in the charts given it being the biggest free faller plummeting 9 ranks down outside the Top 10 to a sad number 14! I have included a few new entries further below in form of videos so you can listen to what has dominated Enrico’s Hitlist in the second week of 2014! Maybe I’m just lazy today … I still have to play the sympathy card as it’s only been a week ago when I was in hospital!!!
