19th November 2017

It's straight in at 1 for OMD's best record, Maid Of Orleans peaked at 2 in my charts in 1982, but was still the star moment at the concert last week, so following a sort-of request to include it (Hi Simon!) it's overdue getting to number one, as Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark make it an 8th time on top. It's about Joan Of Arc, that old pop song cliche subject matter that everyone writes about all the time...

That means Sufjan Stevens gorgeous and touching gentle movie song is at 2 for now, as by contrast the exciting Written By Wolves packs it up to 4 and Led Zep's hard rocking Immigrant Song is up to 7 - just behind The Fizz. I do enjoy being perverse in my music tastes laugh.gif Golden Slumbers is in twice - Elbow's new cover, and advert song, pops in, but the short and very sweet original Abbey Road track is in at 24 - The final short track of the trilogy (really they are a medley) The End, entered my chart earlier in the year, so that only leaves Carry that Weight to go. As itunes doesn't sell them together though, they don't qualify, but The Beatles Golden Slumbers does as it has also made the UK sales chart.

Alma's back, going through Phases as she pushes herself out the 40, Pnau shoot up into the 40 for the second time this year, followed closely by a subtle remix of the new Empire Of The Sun - Pnau's partner-act, really - which I prefer to the single mix. Speaking of new mixes, or new versions, Yazoo are back again with a delicious 2017 version of Only You which should push it over a "million" in my sales soon - 1982 rules this week! - which slows it down and removes the blippety-blop synths which detract from the quality of the song.

Another Roy O track enters from his new album. Most of the classic oldies have already had good chart runs, but Blue Angel is a doo-wop 50's styled delight that I've never really noticed before, but sounds quite lush with the LSO on hand. Katie Melua is back, well over a decade into her chart career, with Sting's golden fields oldie, Fall Out Boy and Paloma Faith pop back fairly quickly with new ones, and an old Kate Bush album track, and Jeff Lynne's live version of his 1980 chart-topper (minus luvverly Livvie) sneaks in.

Hi Toffo,

glad you like OMD, a bit random to chart it I know laugh.gif

Dua Lipa has a version of Golden Slumbers? Ooh! Playing it next...yes it's good.

Katie Melua is pretty much a carbon copy of Eva Cassidy, but sweet enough.

Cola making bounds up my next chart cheer.gif

cheers!

Hi Cody,

FOB is pretty much Sia's backing track for Cheap Thrills mixed with a more normal FOB backdrop smile.gif

Still loving Wolves...!

Hi Sergej,

thanks for dropping by and commenting!

Yes, loads of classic names at the mo - there's usually a few but not quite so many as lately!

All of the ones you like have gone up in my new chart, so that's good news laugh.gif

cheers!

Thanks Simon, all down to you, I wasn't going to rechart it, but it's time it was pushed into the million "seller" lists (another 150k to go) laugh.gif
