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!

First

Sorry for being a day later than usual, but I literally just got back from my first trip abroad of 2017! I had good intentions yesterday when I was preparing to post ‘live’ from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, but I decided not to in the end (maybe I had too much wine!).

Anyway week Number 3 has passed and so has another week of Enrico’s Hitlist or better now known as ehcharts and we have a new number one! Saraha from Sweden who was denied to represent the country at last year’s Eurovision Song Contest pushed her way to the top spot with ‘Kizunguzungu’ leaving the highest new entry ‘Said No One Ever’ by Jana Kramer in her wake. Not sure how many of you remember my pre-robbery time but Saraha’s song does remind me a tiny bit of Norway’s entry from 2011 called ‘Haba Haba’.

Thanks to my recent long-haul flights to the US I was able to pick up a few new songs who featured in movies I was able to watch, such as ‘The Secret Life Of Pets’! Although I wasn’t travelling to New York (I went to St Louis/Missouri) the song somehow stuck with me mainly because of its catchiness.

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!!!

It certainly has been a good week for One Republic, even though they’re not on the top spot. That honour goes to Misha B for a second week in a row with her smash hit single ‘Do You Think Of Me’.

However, two new entries for the American Pop band and now two Top 10 positions shows the great talent/potential this group has. ‘Feel Again’ gained a position to climb onto the 3rd rank and ‘I Lived’ becomes this weeks highest new entry at Number 4!  It’s a great new song in Enrico’s Hitlist. The best video I found was a lyric one but since it’s all about music anyway who cares about the moving images, if the sound it is what counts right?!

A surprise re-entry for Neon Genesis Evangelion and the opening theme which is becoming more and more a classic with regular appearances in the Top 20 for the past 13 years! Having spent 66 weeks in the charts since Week 1 back in 2001 (!) it currently occupies Rank 19 in the All-Time Top 100. It is a great pop song to one of the greatest animated TV-Series! Hands down! I think I’ve mentioned this in one of my previous posts that the Japanese do know how to do this stuff!!!

It happened! After being dominant for the past nine weeks on top of Enrico’s Hitlist One Republic slips down to rank number 4 with their summer song of the year so far ‘Feel Again’. It’s been replaced by Misha B who has been on the famous UK talent show called ‘The X-Factor’. She certainly has it and she delivered with this fabulous song, which I came across this week. ‘Do You Think Of Me’ is now the 13th number 1 of 2013 and the 291th since records began in 2001!

In second position ‘Popular Song’ remains its’ second place and almost made it onto the top spot. Only almost though! A surprise debut on rank 3 goes to Mary J. Blige and her song to the movie ‘The Help’ which I think is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time! The novel – which this move is based on – is even better! Very emotional, very gripping, very surprising first entry for the American singer!

And even though last week I thought ‘Best Song Ever’ by One Direction wouldn’t make it into my charts. Well the song grew on me and enters on rank 13 which seems to be the number of the week!

And another two new songs fail to de-throne ‘Feel Again’ by One Republic who’s been the dominant force in Enrico’s Hitlist for an 9 consecutive weeks! This mens it’s already progressed to a tied 8th position with Kelly Rowland & David Guetta and their smash hit from 2009 ‘When Love Takes Over’ for occupying the number 1 spot!

Colour of the week looks more red (for downfall) rather then blue (for improving). And the ownly two blues this week are fantastic new entries. Highest new entry is Mika & Arianas Grande’s ‘Popular Song’ which was still not popular enough to become the next Number 1 Hit! A very catchy song even with a bit of summer feel to it!

Who doesn’t remember X-Factor and the incredibly talented – I know that’s debatable – Lucy Spraggan? To be honest I almost forgot about her until I came across this song this week. For most of the past seven days it looked like a solid second position but in a last minute entry surprise by the above mentioned ‘Popular Song’ she ‘only’ manages to sneak to Rank 3 with her debut single ‘Lighthouse’ yet another ‘light’ summer feel song!
