18th December 2016

It's the pre-christmas chart and Robbie rules for a 6th week, cos I adore the melody and emotion of this spine-tinglingly romantic love song. Robbie always wears his lyric heart on his sleeve, and just touches me enormously, his gift with words is great and Guy Chambers' melodies heavenly. Robbie needs a slap for not putting it on the album proper, though, unless he has bigger plans for it. Perfectly constructed ballad.

The Weeknd still has two top 5 tracks, Coldcut get their 4th top 10, and all the Christmas songs are joined by a new one from ABC, their first, and 7th chart entry this year. 2016 is their best year since 1982 classicness. When they scored a first hit at christmas 1981, just faffing around the lower end of the UK top 75 was a little old minor jolly christmas ditty from The Waitresses, barely even one-minor-hit wonders. Time has been very kind, though, as the song tends to get some annual exposure without ever breaking big. LONG overdue a top 40 visit, we need a campaign to get it there at long last. 14 for me, some 35 years after first cracking my top 40.

Busted have a top 20 climb, Alan Walker a huge leap for a second top 30, while chart returns for Kaiser Chiefs, Barry Gibb, Robin Schulz, David Guetta, Zayn and Taylor Swift set them up for a good start to 2017.

Hi Steve thanks for dropping by - the numbers are chart point "sales". Back in the 70s i got hold of a book which printed the ratio of uk singles chart sales for one week in 1976, the week Abba were on top with Fernando. So I thought it would be fun to use them for my own charts and compile a year end chart. I just kept going laugh.gif

The advantage over a basic 1 to 40 or 75 or 100 points chart point system is it gives a better weighting to tracks you love with passion over ones you like a lot that just hang around a long while. The disadvantage is some tracks get flattered if the tracks going top 3 are due to lack of competition laugh.gif

Hi Jason,

Leona is almost in the uk top 40 sales chart this week so just blame spotify playlists as i don't believe for a minute that streamers like it less than 20th century classics and only older downloaders love it!

I would LOVE Human to be xmas number one but itll prob be Clean Bandit again...

This is my fave Busted record ever ohmy.gif

Cheers!

Hey James!

Thanks and yes that Weeknd track keeps growing, subtle and lovely. First Garbage track youve liked ohmy.gif You need to play Stupid Girl, Special, and others, play loud (but not through headphones, hearing damage!) laugh.gif

Ah Waitresses, so joyful! wub.gif
