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!

Can’t Stop

I kind of have to start this weeks article with yet another apology, because it has been such a long time since my last post (again I know!)

BUT a lot has happened since last year to say the least. I won’t bore you with those details today, because a) I need to keep some stories for the future to come and b) it is already pretty late and I do need my ‘beauty’ sleep #joking!

A few things though! This week marks another new beginning of ehCharts – 3rd time lucky  I hope, as I haven’t been consistent enough over the past few months to keep it up I spontaneously decided to re-start again, as much as it hurts!

This weeks headline also coincidently refers to the ‘first’ Number 1 ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ by Justin Timberlake who performed this fine tune at the Eurovision Song Contest final this year in Sweden’s capital Stockholm. Even though I only kept my top 20 sporadically over the past couple of months this song would have been number one quite a few times so it definitely deserves the top position this week. However Shakira’s ‘Try Everything’ from Zootopia is closely followed especially after having discovered an amazing remix to this song. And I actually think this is a close candidate for number one next week, but who knows! We all know anything is possible these days, especially when its comes to my music taste so stay tuned for more to come, because I am definitely back for good!!!

Jazz

ehCharts did see an influx in Jazz music this week it seems, though Jess Glynne manages to successfully defend her Number 1 position for a second week in a row with ‘Hold My Hand’.

Dutch Pop & Jazz Queen Caro Emerald, more notably known for her smash hit ‘Stuck’ debuts at a respectable Number 2 with ‘No Charge’ and in her wake she lets another Jazz-like song sweep in at rank 6 which happens to represent the United Kingdom in this years Eurovision Song Contest! I guess ‘Still In Love With You’ will widely divide peoples opinions though I think it has pretty good chances in the grand Finale taking place in Vienna on the 23rd of May!

Not sure why, but for some reason ‘I Can’t Go For That/You Make My Dreams’ performed by the Glee Cast caught my attention again this week and sneaks in at Number 5! It is extremely catchy though and the video funny to watch plus it features Idina Menzel, famously known for ‘Let It Go’.

Last but not least I do have to mention one of the most famous Japanese Anime’s. NEON GENESIS EVANGELION, an incredibly well done series 26 episodes long from the 90’s. Their Opening Theme (actually called ‘Zankoku Na Tenshi No These’) sung by Yoko Takahashi is this weeks greatest gainer climbing up 5 positions into the Top 10 in it’s tenth week success!

I know I was bragging on about my six times a week working out last week, but I actually manage to do it seven times this week which I’m very proud about and even more happy to actually already see some results! More to follow!!

Down Memory Lane

Another crazy week has gone by, not just music but also travel wise as you might notice below! Not only do I have a ‘new’ number one, I also travelled across Germany going down memory lane being in my hometown of Senftenberg/Brandenburg, where this whole chart concept began some 13.5 years ago!

This means, that this week I shall go into history based entries than this weeks ‘new’ ones, because it is much more fun I think! Though I would like to point out that it is very rare for a song to jump to the top sport after 8 weeks in the charts! Actually I think this never happened before! However Glee’s U2 cover version of ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’ kind of sums up my feelings I’ve experienced travelling  across the nation I grew up in, having visited cities such as Hanover, Hamburg, Berlin and Munich.

The 4th of May has not produced a great deal of new entries over Enrico’s Hitlist existence, which means I will focus more on a few of the first few titles back in the first week of my charts! And the biggest applause goes to Manchester Pop group Urban Cookie Collective with their most successful hit ‘The Key: The Secret’! With 135 weeks chart presence it is the second longest running hit in the Top 20 and All Time Number 7 having spent 2 weeks at the top spot. In my point of view it is definitely a classic these days and as soon as you’ll watch it you surely you will dance or at least sing to it!

 

Another classic of course is Australians sensation Vanessa Amorosis’ ‘Absolutely Everybody’, the first ever officially mentioned Number One in Enrico’s Hitlist! Simple Lyrics and Simple Melody is all what it takes sometimes to bring the Olympic movement together after one of the most amazing Games ever. Of course I am talking about Sydney 2000! Despite that, you can barely deny that it is an amazingly catchy song and has therefore rightfully spent an incredible 38 weeks in the Top 20 to be currently listed at All Time Number 88!

 

Loona shouldn’t be missed out that year either, especially since Luv became the first Number 1 Hit that year with ‘You’re The Greatest Lover’. Never mind! ‘Latino Lover’ which obviously was a cover version still was a proper summer hit despite being ‘released’ and mentioned in Enrico’s Hitlist on the 1st of January 2001! A respectable 119 points have been collected in its 9 weeks appearance and a pretty memorable song to which I’ll leave you with this memory weekend!

ANOTHER DOUBLE BILL or this Time I Blame Dallas/Texas Y’All

Here we are again, with another ‘Double Bill’. This time I have to blame Dallas/Texas instead of New York for the delay, but maybe you like the wait to see what has happened over the past two weeks in Enrico’s Hitlist?! I hope so! And thanks for checking!!!

Firstly, we do have a new Number One, another country-pop song which rose straight to the top spot having been ‘discovered’ on my flight from London’s Heathrow airport to Chicago’s O’Hare. ‘Day For The Dead’ might sound awful, but once you hear it I am confident it will be stuck in your heads like it did in mine. Thanks to Shazam I was able to track it down the moment I touched down in the US state of Illinois. It’s the right balance of country, pop and rock as well which totally got my attention and still does as it remained at the top spot for a second week in a row! I think, their live performance is good but doesn’t do the song justice! Judge yourself. And they kind of remind me of Led Zepellin a bit!

 

Since I’ve already blamed Dallas for this delayed update of Enrico’s Hitlist I feel cheeky enough – though it hasn’t recently re-entered my charts – to present you the current opening of the TV-Show. I will also still stick to my statement which I made some time ago, that I do think the current show is a very good continuation of the original tv-show which captured the attention of millions!! DALLAS Fans, ENJOY!

Glee I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For 6

 

This week saw another country-pop song debuting fairly high in Enrico’s Hitlist! Chris Young manages to enter at Number 3 with ‘I Can Take It From There’ a song which this time I discovered on my flight from Chicago to the infamous city of Dallas! That’s right, I went to Texas again and had an absolute blast! Perhaps too much alcohol but like one of my friends is keep saying to me YOLO! And like Chris is keep singing, I can also take it from there!

Another one of this weeks new entries is Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’. But this song only manages to re-enter because of this very chilled Kygo Remix which I heard first on a car ride from the airport to downtown Dallas. Just imagine being in a car, the sun is shining and you’re in one of the most famous cities on this planet, well according to my own rating! You get the feel. Close your eyes and let it take you wherever you want to be. Kygo did a very good job remixing this classic and no wonder this youTube video has over 3 million views.

I finish off this weeks’ epic post with a blast from the past, and I’m going back to the 27th of April 2009 when Annie Lennox entered Enrico’s Top 20 at Number One with ‘Shining Light’, an amazing song which currently ranks 164 out of 2095 (!) having scored 229 points during its twelve week appearance – three of them at the top spot! This women is a genius!
