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!

Surely

‘Crazy Youngsters’ by the Pitch Perfect 2 cast manages to hold tight onto Number 1 for a second week in a row. The Troublemakers also keep their second position from last week to fight off an attempt from Sweden’s newcomer duo Samir & Viktor and their smash hit ‘Success’

Neil Diamond’s ‘Cherry, Cherry’ definitely deserves the award for most surprising entry in this weeks Top 20 with entering at number 6 making it the highest new entry, though it seems almost like it opened a floodgate for ‘new’ songs in the charts such as ‘Word Of Mouth’ by Mike & The Mechanics on number 7 or the the 90’s hit ‘Sweat (Ah La La Long)’ by Inner Circle at number 19.

It surely is a week with a variety of styles and ‘Ain’t Nobody’ by Felix Jaehn & Jasmine Thompson is just another example for the broad taste of mine, though reading the comments on the video there are quite a few pro’s and con’s which I didn’t expect, but I guess everybody can judge for themselves. I also wonder if ‘Jump’ by the Pointer sisters is featured on a few athletes iPod’s after their week at the IAAF athletic world championships in Beijing. Who knows!

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!!!

Christmas Week No. 51

Despite the fact, that ‘How Will I Know’ and ‘Power Of Love’ lost a few ranks in this weeks charts, it is without a single doubt that this weeks winner clearly is Britain’s X-Factor sensation Sam Bailey, who rose to fame by taking the competition’s crown with her very own adaptation of Demi Lovato’s ‘Skyscraper’.

Needless to say it became not only Enrico’s Christmas Number 1, but also shot to the top spot in the Irish and UK charts!!! I would also like to point out that the rare occasion happened that the number 3 in Enrico’s Hitlist also matches the third spot in the British Top 40. Well done Leona Lewis!

And yes since it’s Christmas I’d also like to share the second highest entry in this weeks Top 20.  It is one of the best-selling singles of all time in the UK, however this time performed by the US TV-show cast of Glee! Yes, ‘Mary’s Little Boy Child’ which was an immense success by Boney M. has now captured my attention and narrowly denied Sam her claim to fame!

Week No. 50

I guess the biggest winner in this week’s charts is the freshly crowned UK X-Factor winner: Sam Bailey, despite not reaching the number one spot. Her final performance of ‘Power Of Love’ originally sung by Jennifer Rush pushed her 13 ranks up from last weeks 18th position. See below her incredible performance on tonights show and of course Enrico’s Top 20!!!

It is not very often that I support someone from the X-Factor, but I truly believe she has an amazing versatile voice and style and therefore will become a big superstar. Go Sam! I’ll support her!

Leona Lewis – another X-Factor winner – lost a bit of Christmas appeal though and slides down to number two with ‘One More Sleep’ where as Nashville singing sensation Aubrey Peeples manages to climb back to Number One with ‘Gonna Get Even’!

The surprise entry of the week however goes to Afrojack & Spree Wilson with a single called ‘The Spark’ which becomes the highest new entry at Rank number 7! It is one of those songs which has probably been around for a while but only this week found its way mysteriously into Enrico’s Top 20! Very uplifting!!!

Third week in a row and it is still celebration time for Jessie J as ‘It’s My Party’ remains Enrico’s Number 1 Hit. It can hold another new entry this week at number two! Shane Filan’s ‘Everything To Me’ having a great debut and just missing out narrowly to the top spot!

It’s been a while since UK band The Wanted had a hit in Enrico’s Hitlist. But week 36 ends the draught for the boys and their first appearance since ‘Lightning’. Rank seven this week for their latest single ‘We Own The Night’. On another note: Neon Genesis Evangelion got lucky and only dipped 4 ranks down to Number 16 this week with their infamous Anime ‘Opening Theme’, as Tokyo was awarded the 32nd Olympic Games in 2020 by the IOC in Buenos Aires, the second time after being host in 1964! I have to admit that the Japanese capital was my favourite to win against Turkish mega city Istanbul and Spanish capital Madrid. Well done Tokyo!

I actually would like to share a third song this week with you. Managing to re-enter ehcharts© at position number 12 it’s Romania’s Eurovision Entry from 2008 ‘P-eo Margine De Lume’. Nico & Vlad are the country’s 2nd most successful Eurovision Entry so far and ranked currently 47th in Enrico’s All Time Eurovision Songs. Nevertheless it is a beautiful song and surely would have done better if it hadn’t been out singing first in Belgrade back then.

Does everyone realise that it is already September and therefore officially autumn (!) has arrived?! But according to the highest new entry this week I just have to ‘Think Positive’. Even though Luke Britnell didn’t proceed into Bootcamp on the 10th edition of the UK X-Factor show his original song performed last night during his first audition definitely caught my attention. However it just wasn’t enough to dethrone Jessie J who can hold onto the number 1 spot for a second week with ‘It’s My Party’. But please do judge for yourself what you think of Luke’s charming song.

For some reason I completely ‘ignored’ Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’ over the past few weeks despite listening to it every day at work. Initially I thought it’s an old song of hers until it was pointed out to me it’s her latest single. Ironically it was released the same day as Lady Gaga’s ‘Applause’ – which can hold onto the 10th position this week – and I guess that’s how I didn’t pay full attention to Katy. Nevertheless here she is with ‘Roar’ which stormed to Number 3 in it’s first week. It is actually her first appearance since she was last seen back in 2010 with ‘The One That Got Away’! Strange video though I must admit.
