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.

Infamous

I’m afraid I still haven’t got a new computer yet which means the posts look slightly different than usual as I am somewhat limited to what I can do using my iPad although I’m pretty chuffed with the result and my efforts. Yes I’m proud of this like I am of my charts!

The past week has seen a few new entries and most notably you’ll see the highest one being at number 2 by Kenneth M C Young with ‘12 Bar Bot’. This song has been in my ears ever since I started playing Astro Bot on PS4 which is an amazing game and finally the soundtrack is out!

Sweden has also started their selection process for this years Eurovision Song Contest which takes place in the israelian city of Jerusalem. Anna Bergendahls ‘Ashes To Ashes’ is definitely a song to watch out for and I’m sure it’ll grow on me over the weeks to come. I have to say that each year the song quality at the infamous Melodifestivalen is just fantastic and I can’t wait for the next semifinal. Oh and for now Doris Dragovic clings on to the Top Spot for a second week in a row.

Hawaii

Good evening or ‘Aloha’ as they say in Hawaii. I do realise that my last chart update has been about 4 weeks ago, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t happen! Therefore today you’ll get a full all in one overview.

You will notice that on the top position nothing has changed and Sweden’s Wiktoria remains unbeatable for a fifth consecutive week! Quite a stunning feat I might add, which also adds to Sweden’s success in Enrico’s Hitlist so far (more about this in a future post). Unfortunately this young talented lady has not progressed to the Eurovision Song Contest this year, despite being enormously popular with the public! The ‘professional’ jury must have been deaf and blind not to give her higher ratings which ultimately cost her to lose out on Robin Bengtsson’s ‘I Can’t Go On’. Funny enough the Swedish charts seem to reflect my taste on this occasion as Wiktoria is still ranked higher than Robin!

Having re-watched the Swedish selection process called Melodifestivalen again, has also given Ace Wilder’s ‘Wild Child’ a boost as she climbed up to the third position and remains there as solid as a rock only to be beaten by a group which was in my charts about two years ago called Te Vaka. Their upbeat song ‘Logo Te Pate’ debuted two weeks ago thanks to Disney’s magnificent animated movie ‘Moana’. Having watched that movie and also being on a little vacation to America’s paradise has also pushed a few other Hawaiian inspired songs into the Top 20 such as ‘Pakalolo’!

As previously predicted you also notice a german speaking song called ‘Guten Morgen Sonnenschein’ a very upbeat version of Nana Mouskouris’ original which remains in the Top 5 for a 4th week running and by the looks of it it’s going to be in the charts for a while!

Admit

As predicted a week ago, this week sees Melodifestivalens participant Wiktoria storm to the top spot with her cheerful tune called ‘As I Lay Me Down’. She actually progressed to the Final round in Sweden which will take place on the 11th of March in Stockholm to chose their representative for this years Eurovision Song Contest. And not only I like it, Sweden does to, as Wiktoria entered the Swedish Top 20 this week as well! I must admit it has been a while since ESC songs were so predominant in the Top 20.

Not only did Wiktoria climbed to victory this week, but you can also see Italy’s Francesco Gabbani gain an astonishing 15 places to an impressive 3rd position with ‘Occidentalis Karma’ currently a big front runner to do well in Kiev!

We also have Norway’s country/folk group Rune Rudberg Band entering at a respectable 7th position with ‘Run Run Away’ being another potential candidate to represent their country in the Ukraine!

Next weeks chart update will be actually coming from Hawaii, as I embark on a little vacation to Oahu. Perhaps there will be some Polynesian inspired tunes? Who knows!

This song has big potential to enter next weeks charts, and brings me back to 2001 when a well known Nana Mouskouri stormed to success with the original ‘Guten Morgen Sonnenschein’! What a great remix though!

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.

Can’t Stop

I kind of have to start this weeks article with yet another apology, because it has been such a long time since my last post (again I know!)

BUT a lot has happened since last year to say the least. I won’t bore you with those details today, because a) I need to keep some stories for the future to come and b) it is already pretty late and I do need my ‘beauty’ sleep #joking!

A few things though! This week marks another new beginning of ehCharts – 3rd time lucky  I hope, as I haven’t been consistent enough over the past few months to keep it up I spontaneously decided to re-start again, as much as it hurts!

This weeks headline also coincidently refers to the ‘first’ Number 1 ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ by Justin Timberlake who performed this fine tune at the Eurovision Song Contest final this year in Sweden’s capital Stockholm. Even though I only kept my top 20 sporadically over the past couple of months this song would have been number one quite a few times so it definitely deserves the top position this week. However Shakira’s ‘Try Everything’ from Zootopia is closely followed especially after having discovered an amazing remix to this song. And I actually think this is a close candidate for number one next week, but who knows! We all know anything is possible these days, especially when its comes to my music taste so stay tuned for more to come, because I am definitely back for good!!!
