10th February 2019

It's a first week on top for Bobbie Gentry's fabulously moody Sermon, from 1967 the song, giving Mercury Rev a second chart-topper just over 17 years since the last one, the gorgeous The Dark Is Rising. Margo Price gets her first doing a pretty good job of competing with the much-missed Bobbie Gentry (missed as in she stopped her music career over 40 years ago). That keeps the Pet Shop Boys 1990 album track at 2 in a week when they release an EP of political or social commentary tracks, called Agenda - as in commenting on those with agendas, while having an agenda (but a worthy one, being as I agree with every word of every song). All four enter my charts, giving Chris n Neil 6 tracks in my chart. The highest new entry is What Are We Going To Do About The Rich at 19 - tax 'em heavily and force 'em to reveal all their interests worldwide, I say! Give Stupidity A Chance is an ode to Trump, or Brexit, or anything really that puts opinion, hatred and lies over facts, and is quite amusing and as clever as always. The Forgotten Child is clearly about the thousands of illegal immigrant children that have gone missing under Trump. Nobody knows where they are, and if they are even alive.

Jack Savoretti gets a 4th top 10 in 4 years, Dua Lipa a 7th, huge climbs for Tommy Trash & The Chemical Brothers into the 20 as I'm clearly in a mood for clubbing. Yola, Galantis & The Revivalists get big climbs into the 40, and the only new track that doesn't feature "Pet" in the name is from Marina getting a follow-up to her Clean Bandit collab, her 9th chart entry in 9 years, including a top 10 in Prima Donna in 2012.

This week I finally got to see Tears For Fears in concert for the first time - they were still fab, Curt still looking good, and a back catalogue of hits to impress. If I don't get many new entries again next week I may have to rechart Head Over Heels which under-performed in my charts! When I heard it in Donnie Darko I realised the error of my ways. Alison Moyet supported, but Ive seen her headline already with a much bigger setlist. I have to say there can be few touring acts that can start a set with a huge classic on the scale of Everybody Wants To Rule The World.

Don't know or just can't remember that song from Connie Francis.
It's not a big surprise at all, because she recorded over 700 songs in her long music career.

John, is it the first Westlife song in the history of your charts ? laugh.gif

Hi John!

Apparently Georgia is supporting Jungle on their tour so I might get to hear her live on Saturday ohmy.gif (or maybe not, depending on whether the queue is so long I miss the support act).

Nice to see Swan Song so high in your chart, I do think it's one of her best (although I've said that about a lot of her songs until they got boring, come to think of it maybe that's why I generally prefer follow-ups to big hits).

I've just given Give Stupidity a Chance a listen, it's unquestionably PSB but some of the lyrics are... maybe not my thing oops

Great chart biggrin.gif

Hi Alex, I didnt know that Connie Francis song either, it was entered into BJSC after featuring as the closing song in the death of a TV character as the series ended, and it's fab. It was shockingly just a minor 1959 hit for her!

Westlife, I just checked, have had loads of chart entries and some big ones in my charts, I had no idea I liked them that much laugh.gif

6 16 BOP BOP BABY Westlife 406950 2002

Hi Pete, hope you got to see Jungle and Georgia, both have had great singles. If they did this area I'd go along.... (just checked - I missed them! Doh! Other acts on that I hadnt noticed: Stranglers, Adore Delano, Dodgy, marina, Selector so lots of opps there)

Big hits are always ata disadvantage from over-exposure, the bigger the harder it is to hear them as fresh until a long time has passed without hearing them!

It would be boring if we liked the same thing biggrin.gif - I like the PSB political stuff, but the lyrics are a bit clumsy in song in this case, they'd work better as prose, but nobody would get to hear them laugh.gif

cheers!

Hi Jordan! smile.gif

No I'd never heard of Lizzo till Radio 2 picked up on her! She's got pop energy, which is a good thing!

I don't know how Lewww does it contest after contest, he's definitely got the knack for a dance tune - one of the A&R dance labels should have snapped him up by now! smile.gif

Yes so grateful for Black Atlass, Jordan, such a great record - I was hoping it would win UP but slow soulful tracks invariably dont appeal across the board on Buzzjack which is a pity - unless it's The Weeknd of course laugh.gif

cheers!
