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!

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!

No. 1 Ten Years Ago!

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!!!

Week No. 49

This weeks charts were definitely influenced by the passing of a true legend! I am talking about Nelson Mandela of course, the South African hero who has peacefully died just a few days ago. It is therefore no surprise about Tracy Chapman’s Re-Entry with ‘Talkin’ About A Revolution’, a song which will always for some reason remind me about South Africa’s difficult time in the late 80’s and early 90’s and is in my eyes a wonderful tribute! Please watch the video below to relive and pray a little for this man so he can rest in peace.

Praying and preaching also helped British singing sensation and soul legend Dusty Springfield to re-enter with her infamous ‘Son Of A Preacher Man’, one of the All Time Greats in Enrico’s Hitlist. It is her 123rd week in the Top 20 of which 4 of them were at number 1! Not much happening in the top 2 positions though with Leona Lewis’ ‘One More Sleep’ clinging on to the top spot for a second week closely followed by Nashville star Aubrey Peeples and her smash hit ‘Gonna Get Even’!

I am not including any music links this week, because I don’t think they work as well as I thought they would, unless you think so otherwise? Below you also find a potential new entry for next week by Jessie J! Let me know if she deserves to enter Enrico’s charts!

Week No. 48

Enrico’s Hitlist Week 48 (25/11/2013-01/12/2013)

Scroll down for a few music links, as this week’s Top 20 is seeing a sudden comeback from an X-Factor contestant, winner and worldwide superstar! In a surprise last minute surge ‘One More Sleep’ is giving Leona Lewis her second number one single since her collaboration with Avicii ‘Collide’ kind of exactly 2 years ago! It has therefore been unlucky number 7 as Aubrey Peeples tumbles 1 position down to number 2 with the ‘Nashville’ smash-hit ‘Gonna Get Even’. Maybe She will get even next week having been the song to be for an incredible six weeks in a row! We surely will know more next week. And as you all know Christmas is just around the corner and another year of Enrico’s Hitlist reaches the end! It is just amazing how fast 2013 has gone by!

Personally ‘New Beginnings’ by Luminate which has gained quite a few positions this week is a perfect description about my life right now as I’m starting to get back into swim training again and I am changing companies! All exciting stuff going on right now. And therefore Gary Barlows ‘Let Me Go’ is another fitting tribute about my BCD departure after six years leaving a very valued client Warner Bros behind!

However the show must go on like Enrico’s Hitlist! Thanks for your loyalty and a happy first Advent!
