14th May 2017

In from nowhere a belting 2016 track from an Italian production duo I've never heard of: Vinai. maybe that makes up for Italy not winning Eurovision as expected by the bookies. Their track is in at 52 here, along with a host of Euro-tracks, headed up by the winner, the lovely ballad by the Portugal brother-sister singer-writer low-key and non-manufactured charm of Salvador Sobral in at 30. Had I compiled a top 200 current fave tracks (too much hard work!) the UK entry would not feature in it...

Another electronic music duo are in at 12, The Knocks, with a goodie. Knock Knock Who's There, as Mary Hopkin once said in her 1970 UK Eurovision song (now I could hum that one!) - answer: no-one, just The Knocks. The late Robert Miles has his 2 great singles enter my chart, topped by One And One in at 18, still lovely. Highest climber is a mid-70's American hit from Guardians Of The Galaxy, I'm very into Wham Bang Shang-A-Lang right now. In fact I'd rate it higher than both Bang Shang-A Lang by The Archies (1968) and Shang A Lang by The Bay City Rollers (1974) but not quite up to Wham! standards.

There aren't enough songs about superheroes. There just aren't. We've had Supergirl (Graham Bonney) and Donovan's Sunshine Superman (which also mentioned Green Lantern), Batdance (Prince's movie theme mash-up), well at long last there's another goodie to add: Batman & Robin, all about a naughty dream. Fun n fab, and in at 32 for the wonderfully puntastically-named Cazzie Opeia & Jin x Jin (a swedish/kpop hookup) a singalong a la Charli X.

Hi Jason,

Glad you like the new number one - I must check out that video! I didn't realise Classic was from 2014, it's new to me too, and Robert Miles both those tracks went top 10 for me first time round - Children did the best, but I prefer One And One these days.

I loved the Euro winner, very charming and sweet I thought.

cheers!

Hi AH, no worries, takes a lot of time to get through my charts, I know! laugh.gif

I think you're right about streaming and Gorillaz and Kasabian, the banishing of older acts from the singles chart has been it's second-worst feature. The closest parallel I can think of was when the British Invasion in the States decimated established American pop stars - and even there they still had minor hits.

Not heard that 7th heaven remix, must check it out..

cheers!
