8th January 2017

It's George Michael for a second week on top, and 6th week in total, with the gorgeous A Different Corner. Meanwhile, although he's had a few tracks which have already had good chart runs drop out this week, he still has new entries from lesser hits and album tracks, and some climbers, Fast Love going top 10 some 20 years after hitting number one, and Praying For Time up to 12 27 years after topping my chart. Quo also go up with a couple or three tracks.

10 weeks on, Clean Bandit reach a new peak of 3 with Rockabye, easily their best single, and Imagine Dragons grab a second top 10 after topping my chart with Radioactive just over 4 years ago. Barry Gibb gets his first ever solo top 10 after Bee Gee-ing to the top on many occasions over 48 years. Highest new entry is, gasp!, Ed Sheeran. Didn't see that one coming, though borrowing Sia's Cheap Thrills rhythm didn't hurt the appeal of Shape Of You for me, in at 17. His other new single is nowhere, as it was a bit meh on first hearing. Eddie very rarely makes my top 20, and usually it's the uptempo ones when he does.

Grouplove shoot into the 20, David Guetta & Robin Schulz, and Little Mix and Charlie Puth into the 30, and in at 27 it's Tom Odell's biggest hit since Real Love, Silhouette in at 27. Charlie XCX rockets into the 40, while Lukas Graham enter lower down, a second hit fo them, and also for Dami Im scraping in, alongside Yoko Ono, who is making a habit of remix dance hits, covering her old songs. Hell In Paradise made my top 10 in 1985, her second biggest solo hit, and a fab video.

The great news is Rockabye at number 3, my former number 1. cheer.gif
Oh! You don't like Castle On The Hill. I think I prefer that song to Shape of You. ohmy.gif
So happy to see Shed a Light in the top 25. wub.gif It's the best thing David Guetta has been involved in years.

Hi Jason,

Yes I under-rated Rockabye slightly at first, it still sounds great weeks later! Castle On The Hill is OK, my nephew made me play it on youtube (I was trying to get him to like some of my faves laugh.gif ) and it didnt hit me on one play, where the other one did. smile.gif

David Guetta seems to have lost his magic touch recently, so yes nice to see Shed A light sounding good cheer.gif

thanks n cheers!

Hi Jordan!

Thanks for the long list ohmy.gif laugh.gif

I had no idea Noah was that young! I'd got her down as 20-something, so that makes the track all the more impressive, fab quirky.

Just playing carrie's version of Praying For Time now, it's good and such a great song so kudos to her for covering one that isn't obviously one to cover unless the lyrics touch you personally.

Everyone seems to prefer Castle to Shape on BJ, but still waiting for it to grab me yet... (one one hearing laugh.gif )

Glad you like Emeli's new one, it's been under-rated in the UK sadly sad.gif

I've tried to pick George songs that under-performed in my charts to give them a boost, so some that did very well (like Spinning The Wheel and One More Try) are missing, and the chart positions dont really reflect which are my faves absolutely, but Father Figure is one that peaked at 2 and Faith at 7 back in the day so I'm giving them some more love as they deserved a bit more than they got at the time cheer.gif

cheers!

Hey james,

you listed Robbie! wub.gif

I Feel It Coming I also prefer to Starboy, though I do love both cheer.gif

Grouplove is fab, thanks for the tip! Bought it I have cheer.gif

Agnes is also still growing on me, it sneaks up on you gradually, which is a good sign!

cheers!
