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.

First

As explained last week maintaining and continuing continuous updates is challenging especially like in the week just gone, because it is the first week of 2019 (and be rest assured not the last one) where I have been travelling abroad!

Most of you who read this and know me also know that I travel to the US quite a bit so it was with no surprise that I went for a long weekend to America, more specifically the city of Jazz. That’s right, the city which got so badly battered in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina. Of course I am talking about New Orleans (NOLA as the locals call it) on the Gulf Coast in the state of Louisiana. However this weeks update is brought to you from the US Capital Washington D.C. where I am right now.

I guess a few might have expected a few new entries more jazz related but I didn’t hear that much jazz music on this fun fuelled trip. Actually contrary to this the highest entry goes to an artist called Selena Quintanilla with her song ‘El Chico Del Apartamento 512’.

I stumbled across this tune whilst in an Uber back from a cheeky swim session at the University of New Orleans and immediately loved it. 

This week is also a first in the sense that Miley Cirus is the 1st artist of 2019 to maintain the Top Spot for a third week running and already the question is: who will be able to stop her?

Perhaps Rebeka Dremelj with ‘Pod Mojo Kožo’ who entered at Number 5. I guess only the next week’s and months will tell.

2019

I know it has been a long time since my last post! Almost a year in fact which is a bit embarrassing to admit. And like most of the people (I am no exception) starting the new year, there are some new year resolutions attached to mine as well. One of those is obviously getting back into the swing of things with my EHCHARTS and keeping the world of music interesting with own judgemental taste buds!

However as the first week of 2019 has just begun I am unable yet to provide you with the first Top 20 of the year (you have to be patient a few more days I’m afraid). Until then I thought you might be interested to see what songs have had an impact in the turbulent year just gone. I am sure some of those songs will probably re-appear in 2019 but who knows, because like with everything these days -> ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!! Stay Tuned and a Happy New Year to everyone watching this site! One note – these songs are not listed in oder of ranking and are just a random selection!

Besides

Besides the worst hangover I have experienced in a long time I think 2018 has gone off to a fairly good start.

I say fairly good because work has surprisingly been crazy busy which has never been the case like this being the first week of the year and only a four day one as well. Additionally some building issues at the usual training pool has also forced me to do some altercations to my well planned out training programme for the coming months!

Nonetheless I still managed to keep going with my charts last year despite being well absent for the past 7 months or so, which means my present to you today is going to be my Top 10 of 2017 before I proceed to the first Top 20 of 2018 next week!

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!
