Icing

Eurovision is ‘fast’ approaching, which is clearly reflected in this weeks top 20, including a new number 1. So far I would say brace yourself for France, because the song selected is just brilliant. ‘Requiem’ sung by Alma is a very fresh new style and something somehow completely different to other entries I’ve heard and well the french language is the icing on the cake!

This weeks second highest entry belongs to a song which sadly wasn’t selected to represent Spain in Kiev for some unknown reason! Apparently there has been some scandal surrounding this which I need to investigate further, but Mirela’s ‘Contigo’ fell short to be put through! However, to me it has great potential to become a great summer song for 2017, as it instantly makes me feel I am on a beach in Barcelona having fun! Very catchy indeed!

Honestly, the first time I saw the title for a potential Estonian entry I kind of thought ‘Oh of course someone would make a reference to BREXIT’ and ‘In Or Out’ did sound a bit suspicious, wouldn’t you agree?! Though it is another catchy song and another one with a bit of a different approach towards the biggest music show on the planet. And according to some online poll it has a good chance to become indeed Estonia’s choice. Soon we’ll know for sure.

Fun fact about this latest Top 20 is that despite 4 new entries we only see one gainer (can you spot it?) and the rest all lost ground compared to their placing last week!

Second

At the moment I am actually quite impressed with myself, that I’m posting this week, which shows my determination to get the ball rolling again even though it’s only the second week in a row but it is at the end the little steps/things/actions right? So without further fluffing around here are this weeks charts!

Fittingly enough for my post title this week, two new entries probably have caught your attention. First one up on sixth position is Ruth Lorenzo, who a few might re-call from taking part at the Eurovision Song Contest or being a UK X-Factor contestant! Renuncio is a perfect catchy Spanish pop tune and rightfully deserves to be in the Top 10 already!

The first time I heard the artist’ name Just Kiddin I was like are they for real and then the song ‘Fall For You’ came up on my Shazam and it instantly was a ‘hit’ so it is no wonder that it strongly defends it’s seventh position in week number 2!

Another tune defending it’s position from the previous week has grown on me during my recent gym workouts and having listened to it quite a few times now! I am talking about ‘Bury It’ from Churches & Hayley Williams on rank number 9 this week. Quite a cool video too to finish off for today!

Reset

I have made a decision after the past few weeks me thinking about ehCharts (and not posting again!) and decided -> drumroll please

The main reason for this step is that I have been lacking so much with continuity this year and it has gone so far that by now it doesn’t make sense to just start at the end of October again, since this year chart wise will be a write off year!

This means over the next couple of weeks/months I still be showing you regular updates of Enrico’s Hitlist, but it will not account for much in terms of figures for future statistics as it will not have an impact whatsoever and if it does it will be very minimal.

Thanks to X-Factor ehCharts has a new number one (though no one really knows besides myself who has been occupying the top spot over recent weeks) in form of Little Mix’ latest single ‘Shout Out To My Ex’. It was performed on last weeks live result show and has not just climbed to the top in my charts! It has also gained the top spot in the UK Top 40, which is just more evidence that sometimes (!) I’m up to current trends contrary to popular belief.

Another song I want to highlight is currently ranked on eight position but has been a big Top 3 hit over the summer months, especially since June when I discovered this song on my travel around the world. Produce 101’s smash hit single ‘Pick Me’ is a perfect example of K-Pop which has now infiltrated ehCharts!

‘Love On Me’ by Gallants & Hook N Sling is a very new entry and by the looks of it the fourth place will not be the end for this uplifting dance song which will probably help me with my gym work outs over the weeks to come! And with this uplifting note I shall say good night until next time! Thanks for ‘tuning’ in! Continue reading “Reset”

Enough

‘Hello Hi’ by Swedish Pop Trio Dolly Style is holding on to the top spot for an incredible fourth week in a row, which means it still was not enough for Demi Lovato & Cher Lloyd to claim the throne in this weeks charts!

You will also see, that slowly but steadily ‘Popular’ by the Glee Cast is climbing up the latter and settles at the 4th position just behind this weeks highest entry (and rightfully predicted last week) ‘Heartbeat Song’ by US Idol winner Kelly Clarkson. But who am I kidding – these are my charts, so I kind of do decide who is entering and who isn’t!

So it also doesn’t come at a surprise that ZZ Ward with ‘Put The Gun Down’ is debuting at number 7 this week, just having recently seen ‘We’re The Miller’s’!

Last surprise entry of the week is to be found at number 16, a song which was featured on the BBC’s ‘Eurovision’s Greatest’ Hits’. ‘The Lord Of The Dance’ by Irish Dances was just an interval act at the ESC 21 (!) years ago but certainly took the world by storm and the performance on the show certainly had an impact on me! On that dancing note I wish you all a Happy Easter!

Strong

Dolly Style still looking strong with ‘Hello Hi’ clinging onto the top spot for the third consecutive week, fighting off a strong ‘Really Don’t Care’ by Demi Lovato & Cher Lloyd, having to settle for silver.

This all happened in a week which saw One Direction losing one of its members, an awful plane crash in the French Alps and me doing 9 workouts in a week, which I call an achievement, as I haven’t worked out this hard since 2012!!

I also feel a bit proud having correctly predicted that ‘Hold My Hand’ by Jess Glynne would be a future hit, as it debuted at Number 1 in the UK charts, though it only is good enough for the 4th place in my charts this week. Sorry Jess! Glee does demonstrate its strengths having two songs in the Top 5, with ‘I Lived’ & ‘Popular’ being ranked 3 and 5 respectively.

World known Country star Garth Brooks is the only new entrant this week with ‘The River’ sneaking in at number 6, which compared to most of the songs at the moment is a rather quiet but yet beautiful composed country-pop ballad.

This will highly likely be featured in next weeks charts, so stay tuned !

GleeGoodbye

It is late I’m afraid and I need to cut things short, though I might do a mid-week tribute about Glee, which over the last six years (can you believe it?!) has had quite an impact in my charts. So it is no surprise that after the series finale ‘I Lived’ has stormed to Number two, almost taking  down ‘Hello Hi’ by Dolly Style!

Glee will always remain special to me, as it – in my opinion – always managed to make ‘old school songs’ popular again or at least get people talking about them. Best example obviously is ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey which surprisingly enough never did that well in my charts. Nonetheless other songs did and just this week shows the producers and writers did incredibly well, despite the show’s decline since season 3! Glee will definitely be missed and I will pay tribute at some point. So this is it #GleeGoodbye!

Dolly

Sweden always has been good with their song choice for Eurovision, and I only got into it this week, as Melodifestivalen was down to select the entrant for Vienna 2015 and as we all know ABBA – back then – was one of those groups becoming one of the biggest acts in the pop/music industry … However it was not the winner gaining my attention! Instead it was Dolly Style and their incredibly well performed ‘Hello Hi’ which stormed to Number One this week. It is a very endearing catchy pop song, which I think will do well this year at ehCharts.com!

This brings me to the second highest entry this week – and no surprise – another participant to become Sweden’s representative at the Eurovision Song Contest this year Eric Saade. ‘Sting’ makes its debut at Number 6 and after listening to it for quite some time I do think the beginning sounds way to close to ‘Call Me Maybe’, a major hit by Carly Rae Jepson a few years ago, don’t you agree?!

It has been a while since Pink was seen in my charts, but for some reason ‘The Truth About Love’ has hit a nerve this week and a respectable seventh position is the ultimate result.

C.J.Lewis with ‘Sweets For My Sweet’ is probably another surprise entry this week which out of the blue caught my attention and given it is from 1994 rank number 16 is a pretty good place to be!
