8th April 2018

It's straight in for a 40th anniversary vinyl picture disc reissue on top - or rather the B side of Take A Chance On Me - just ahead of World Record Day when another Abba 1978 classic gets that treatment. Back in the day I didn't allow Abba B sides and album tracks in my charts (or any other acts) because my top 10's would have been Ed Sheeran invasions and there was too much to love equally as much. Well now streaming has pooed on that in the real charts, so have I changed my rules. So a huge fave in 1978 finally gets it's own chance to shine, having previously popped into my top 10 in 1999 during an Abba invasion sparked by a Box-set of rarity singles. I'm A Marionette was the key track in a mini-musical of The Album and The Movie. It would sound great in Mamma Mia 2, is all I'm suggesting...

So 44 years of Abba chart-toppers (pretty much all singles and as many album tracks) which stops a gloriously singalong cheesy country track from Kylie doing it (A Lifetime To Repair), but gives her a 3rd top 10 off Golden - along with another 3 new ones, making it a very greedy 6 scattered around the chart - it is a very good album though, most of the tracks stand out as potential singles. That's not all, though, it's been a very good week for new albums, 2 big ones from The Weeknd enter, 2 biggies from Eels, 2 from Lissie (all now having 3 in the list), 2 from Lisa Stansfield, and 2 from Kacey Musgraves. Phew!

I saw Kim Wilde headlining her first tour in decades with a new album Hear Come The Aliens, on Saturday, and rather fab she was too, really rocking it family-style with bruv Ricky and niece Scarlet. Some of the new stuff sounded as fab as the old classics, which gives a boost to Kandy Krush into the 20 some 37 years since show-closer stormer Kids In America. She is still as engaging as ever and a great back-catalogue to boot.

The mass invasion is bad news for a lot of records which fall or drop out prematurely when they should be climbing, but hey that's chart-life, if it's chockablock there's only 75 spots available! Meanwhile another album track (Lloyd Webber at 70) from Lana Del Ray enters, covering the Evita add-on for Madonna's film version, and I must say I much prefer Lana's reading. Meanwhile Florence covers Tiny Dancer for an Elton/Bernie multi-artist effort, a fab song that was not a hit single in the early 70's, and she has the best track on the album. That leaves only Alice Merton returning her No Roots to the chart a year on as it finally becomes a UK radio/chart presence. Better late than never.

"I'm A Marionette" grew up for me very much after Dutch TV musical "ABBAcadabra".
This song was a main theme for the witch, played by wonderful Marga Scheide (member of popular girl group Luv').

John, which ABBA song is your least favourite ?

Hi John!

Fratellis out of the Top 10 sad.gif Oh well, it had to happen at some point!

Kylie Minogue and Jack Savoretti? Will need to give that a listen!

Nice to see No Roots enter, albeit a year late tongue.gif Wonder if it'll do anything in the UK now?

Great Chart biggrin.gif

Hi Alex, I never saw that ABBA cadabra show, but I still have fond memories at being at University and buying The Album and playing it till my room-mates got sick of it, I think laugh.gif

It's hard to pick a Least favourite Abba song, some of the early songs weren't all that great, and B sides like Crazy World were a bit dull, but I'd probably opt for King Kong Song for the lyrics - it's sort of so bad/funny that it's enjoyable! laugh.gif

Thanks Pete cool.gif

Everything that goes up must come down laugh.gif

Kylie & Jack is pretty good quality I must say!

No Roots had a run a year ago, but I don't recognise songs that peak in different years as re-entries, I want them listing the new peaks as different chart runs - I get VERY annoyed when I see Chart books showing Love Me Do by The Beatles as charting in 1962 and peaking at 4. It peaked at 17 in 1962 and then recharted in 1982 and peaked at 4, two chart runs not one laugh.gif

Hope it does a Feel It Still though!

cheers!

Hi Sven,

Abba have never stopped being alive to me since the day they won Eurovision and I rushed out to buy it laugh.gif

Kylie took me by surprise how good the album is!

Cheers!
