Wild

I just had a scary moment with a few of my songs as they were suddenly gone out of my iTunes and nowhere to be seen/found! Luckily I had been recording the last few weeks of my charts so I knew exactly what five songs I had to recover!

If I wouldn’t have found them I probably would have become a ‘Wild Child’, which coincidently has stormed to the top position. It was performed by Ace Wilder at the first round of the Melodifestivalen, which is the Swedish Preselection process to find their Eurovision Entry. Ace Wilder is not unknown and already had hits with ‘Do It’ and ‘Don’t Worry’, but this time she hit the jackpot climbing to Number One!

Another new entry can be seen at Number six and also relates to Eurovision, though this one is dating back to 1977, the year Germany was represented by a group called Silver Convention and guess what: ‘Telegram’ was performed in English and is very very catchy, though perhaps today’s lyrics probably would be replaced by Instagram!

Not really new to Enrico’s Hitlist, but new to this year reset is of course One Direction and their smash hit (well in my point of view) ‘I Would’. It is one of the songs where I’m confident that it would have been very popular if it had been released as a single. I would have 😉

For some reason the video to ‘Wild Child’ by Ace Wilder is currently unavailable. As soon as it is up and running I’ll bring it up!

Changes

I might change my actual release day of ehCharts to Mondays, but I’m not 100% sure about that. What I’m sure about though is that the past week has had some big changes in the Top 20! I also can’t believe the first month of 2017 is already over!

As Eurovision is starting to get going – with various countries having picked already their song – you will also see some of those entries most likely in Enrico’s Hitlist such as Belarus’ ‘Historyja Majho Zyccia’ storming to an unexpected third position. It’s Belarus second highest entry ever in ehCharts. The record is still held by Alexandra & Konstantin and their catchy pop-folk tune ‘Galileo’.

Also related to Eurovision is the new Number 1 called ‘Better On My Own’ by Krista Siegfrids. Some of you might recall her entry for Finland ‘Marry Me’ which I thought was a great song (despite not doing great in the actual contest). This year she will try to seek success in Swedens infamous Melodifestivalen, but with another song which I’m looking forward to hear. In the meantime she surely appreciates her top spot!

One rarity occurred this week in form of The Gipsy Kings who managed to sneak in at Number 4 with ‘Baila Me’ and in doing so kicking out their very own ‘Medley’ which did well the first three weeks of the year. What a week!
