Progress

Welcome back and can you believe, that the first month of 2015 has already passed?! I actually can, looking at the progress I have made so far this year and especially looking at ehCharts being now in it’s fifth week!

Quite a few changes (yet again) especially with the new Number 1 by country newcomer Sam Hunt and his amazing ‘House Party’ song! I do hope he will release a few more songs soon matching the catchy style of this tune.

People who know me personally, and people who have been following ehCharts – to whom I am very grateful to – know that I always had a passion for the Glee Cast and the way they covered certain songs. It is therefore no surprise (to me at least) that ‘Hand In My Pocket / I Feel The Earth Move’ has made an overwhelming debut at Number 3 just behind last weeks number one ‘Feelin’ It’ by another country newcomer Scotty McCreery.

This is closely followed by ‘What Are You Waiting For’,  a summer pop anthem in fourth position by the infamous UK girl group The Saturdays who have first emerged onto the scene a couple of years ago with their cover version of ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’.

One more song I would like to introduce this week (scroll down for the video) is the one which is going to represent France at this years Eurovision Song Contest taking place in Austria’s capital Vienna. Not only has Lisa Angell managed to sneak in at a respectable 6th position, she also has kicked her competition from the Netherlands Trijntje Oosterhuis down to the minor ranks. ‘N’Oubliez Pas’ will do well I think!

I wish one of these songs would feature at tonights SuperBowl which is happening in Phoenix/Arizona right now! Maybe one day! Go SeaHawks (yes I am supporting Seattle)!!!

Only Two

It has been quite an emotional week for me (again) and I keep learning about people’s true characters. Sadly, lately most of those have become more bad than good, but I’m not giving up. And maybe Connie Britton with her Nashville tune last year called ‘The Best Songs Come From Broken Hearts’ is true!

This brings me nicely to this weeks number one as country star Scotty McCreery manages to reclaim the top spot with the feel good song ‘Feelin’ It! If it performs this well over the next couple of weeks it will become a hot contender for song of the year!

Country music seemed to have regained strength in general as Sam Hunt’s ‘House Party’ is proving at number 2! And this week’s highest entry goes to a country tune as well as you will see with ‘Your Mama Should’ve Named You Whiskey’ debuting at a respectable eighth place though it’s only one of two new entries this week.

You probably also notice a surprise entry by the Sister Act Cast with ‘Hail Holy Queen’. Well given the ups and downs I went through this week and having just recently watched the movie this song still gives me joy and it probably always going to remain a classic! And who doesn’t love the old lady rocking that piano!

Happy Australia Day to my Aussie friends and to show my appreciation the fascination land of Oz below are two of my favourite TV jingles.

The Newsroom

I finally caught up on a US TV-Show called ‘The Newsroom’ and this week I managed to watch a series finale. The reason I am mentioning it is that this weeks highest new entry is ‘That’s How I Got To Memphis’ storming up to the 4th position, which is pretty respectable given it’s ‘old’ nature and being a rather quiet country song. Though it did get a major push because of the HBO Entertainment show mentioned above, which featured a brilliantly Emily Mortimer alongside with Jeff Daniels.

Just realised I got a bit carried away here! As you will also see last weeks new entry ‘Cheerleader’ by OMI stormed to the top spot making it already the 3rd Number One of 2015. This is closely followed by another big gain going to The BBC and their Regions Intro. Looks like this year a lot of songs seem to attract more favouritism once they have been remixed. The Felix Jaehn Remix of Cheerleader is obviously one example which actually sits currently also at Number One in Australia’s Single Charts!

Miami Horror manages to sneak into this weeks Top 10 with ‘Holidays’! Maybe that is a sign for myself to look into booking some days of vacation for 2015 and a hint to go to Florida?!

I think it is a pretty brilliant performance by the Newsroom Cast and yet another great tv-moment created by Aaron Sorkin.

 

 

 

Movements

The second week of ehCharts 2015 had his first big movements and already a change at the top spot! Scotty McCreery’s ‘Feelin’ It’ did have an impact (desire for summer holiday perhaps?!) and has claimed the number one position. Furthermore you will notice that last weeks Number 1 has to settle at number seven this week.

For those Eurovision Fans out there (and I know you are out there!) you might be pleased to see that this years winner of the Dutch selection Trijntje Oosterhuis makes her debut with ‘Walk Along’ at rank 2 this week and successfully continues on last years single called ‘Calm After The Storm’ by The Common Linnets!

Further success comes from another Eurovision participant representing Spain last year with ‘Dancing In The Rain’. Y’all know that I am talking about Ruth Lorenzo who released her first album ‘Planeta De Azul’ and storms to number 3 with ‘Gigantes’, which has been also a success in the Spanish Singles Charts.

Lastly I would like to point out that all kinds of music have the chance to enter ehCharts, as you will see with the BBC News Countdown being one example or Jennifer Lopez’ Hip Hop single ‘I Luh Ya Papi’ another. Check out the videos below and enjoy and thanks for checking in!

The official Top 40 of 2013

The official Top 40 of Enrico’s Hitlist after completion of year 13 (!) are now in front of you

The list says it all and I have compiled the Top 10 videos in reverse order so you can all re-live the best songs of the year and perhaps re-vive some forgotten memories!

Despite being the Number 1 Song of 2013, it is unfortunately the lowest scored Top Spot for One Republic and ‘Feel Again’ as they merely accumulated 489 points to claim the crown. In a tight fight ‘Blurred Lines’ by Robin Thicke – one of the summer hits this year – manages to overhaul Icona Pop’s ‘I Love It’ to lead by only two points with 429 to 427 respectively.

Hayden Panettiere is probably the unluckiest artist of 2013 as she misses out of the Top 10 by an incredible single point and with a total tally of three songs in the Top 40! But for the time being just enjoy the music! More to follow for sure!!!

Well there is obviously not much to explain about this Bank Holiday Special! It is showing you the Top 40 of 2013 so far. For those who aren’t up to speed yet – so far means – after 34 weeks! That’s right! It includes the week just gone.

Judging by the numbers – it looks like a tight tussle for Number 1 between Icona Pop and One Republic. I guess we have to wait and see what the next few weeks will have in store. I may also point out that the Glee Cast is having their worst year since introduction in 2010, even though they’re currently occupying 2 spots in the Top 10!

Country music – besides mainstream Pop and Eurovision – is still one of this years favourite music genres with Lindi Ortega & Hayden Panettiere on a pretty strong 7th and 8th position respectively. The last time country had such a big presence was in 2007 & 2008 thanks to the amazing Dolly Parton.

Below will by the Top 3 music videos relating to the above mentioned ranking of Enrico’s Top 40 so far. Enjoy!

Apologies first for being so late, but as I always say: Better late than never! Misha B can hold onto the top spot for another week with her smash hit ‘Do You Think Of Me’ whilst Mika seems to be stuck with his ‘Popular Song’ at the second position.

I shall keep it short since it’s quite late already! As you can see not much has happened in the top rankings besides a bit of shuffling around! Highest new entry this week goes to Eliza Doolittle and her newest single called ‘Big When I Was Little’ which is her third single in Enrico’s Hitlist! Pretty catchy easy listening to kind of song!

The second highest entry this week goes to a song which has been in my iTunes for a while but for some reason never made an impact before until now! I think judging by the video it has something to do with this animated movie called ‘Cars’ but I will investigate that further once I have more energy to do so! Until then enjoy this weeks Top 20 with ‘Life Is A Highway’ – a very rock themed song – unusual for Enrico’s Hitlist!!!
