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.
