22nd January 2017

It's a 4th week on top for A Different Corner, equalling it's first run in 1986 for a total of 8 weeks on top. It's still heartbreaking, and George has 3 in the top 5, 4 in the 10, 5 in the 20, 6 in the 40. His more upbeat tracks and bigger hits, for the most part, have dropped out of my chart leaving only his very classic ballads and great album tracks that fit in with my mood over his loss - all should have been been hit singles, and ooze pure class.

That leaves Ed Sheeran and Grouplove to sneak into the top 10, and 21 new entries headed by John Mayer, yet to break big but he does well in my charts, the highest being his very Randy Newman-esque You're Gonna Live Forever In Me, with his jazzy Moving On And Getting Over at 26, both fresh out. There's a host of very different new tracks shooting straight into the top 40: shuffle alternative of Tamer at 23, Dua Lipa's 4th top 40 in a row with Be The One at 24, Crystal Fighters poppy Good Girls at 26, Pete Tong's cover of a former chart-topper for Fatboy Slim (in these charts) Right Here Right Now at 27, and Faith in at 29 - not the famous George Michael hit (which is lower) no this is an actual new Stevie Wonder track that is good! It's from a movie (Sing) and features Ariana Grande, giving him a first top 40 with new material in 12 years, and most likely his best new track in 30 years. Stevie now has a span of a bit under 49 years in my charts.

The Dead South enter at 33, a Canadian alt-country band and there's a fab video to go with it, Beyonce enters lower down with yet another Lemonade track, but she must be coming up on 18 years of hits, while Data and Picard bring Star Trek into my charts again (not for the first time) as Pogo does a mash-up of Next Gen samples quite effectively, his second chart entry. The first Star Trek track to make my charts a disco cover of the original TV series theme tune by the Charles Randolph Orchestra in 1976. Finally, at 75, Arcade Fire return after a long gap - but not as long as their guest vocalist Mavis Staples, last doing it with the help of Prince in the early 90's when I saw her supporting the man at Wembley Arena. Mavis first charted here in 1972 with her sisters and dad, as The Staple Singers went top 3 with I'll Take You There.

Hi Jason & thanks!

Sorry the reply's a bit late, busy week!

I wonder if Zaynlor will pick up plays now...

I meant Stevie had his biggest hit in my charts, the only charts that count (though also the UK charts, he got to 11 with Blue, I think) laugh.gif

Dua just got her biggest hit to date, her album may well be a biggie - at least for these days!

Grouplove came 3rd for James in Buzzjack, and well deserved, great record.

cheers!
