Uhsting's Top 50


More graphical version of my chart can be found on Crownnote: http://crownnote.com/charts/uhsting/uhstin...top-50-songs-98

Chart commentary: We are back with a busy week featuring 14 new entries and 1 re-entry. The highest entry this week was at no. 61 last week but the vulnerable vocals and beautiful melody captivate me massively and deservedly debuted at a high position in top 50. Elsewhere, the famous rock band Daughtry is back with Heavy Is The Crown, which is a strong sounding song! Gender-fluid artist Andrea Di Giovanni made their first appearance in this chart with a banger Crown, which I thoroughly enjoy. Rounding up is some chill vibes with Mathieu Des Longchamps bringing the charismatic Mademoiselle Tomovic.

Meanwhile, Tout l'Univers crawled their way to the no. 1 spot, becoming the third Eurovision 2021 song to achieve the feat. This also means Eurovision 2021 has the highest number of no. 1 entries in years, which goes on to show how strong Eurovision 2021 is! He Knows jumps into the top 5 while the top 10 remain largely the same, with only the entries of I can never be, an intimate ballad that confronts the idea of "feeling deserving" of good things, and (L)only Child. Biggest jump goes to MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) as the song's melody grows into me listen after listen, and the lyrics are relatable.

gold.gif Gjon's Tears - Tout l'univers


Rising one position (again) is Tout l'univers. This song became the third Eurovision 2021 entry that received a no. 1 peak in my chart. I cannot recall which edition of Eurovision achieved this amazing feat but certainly not 2019 and 2020 as both of these years had no no. 1 songs on my chart (maybe 2017?). This is a super strong ballad and I think it is even better than Arcade and that high note at the end is going to be the goosebumps moment on stage!

Chart history: 4-3-2-1

newdown.png 2. LANKS - The Silence


Down by one place is The Silence. This song is still grappling my heart and the music video is very artistic and conveys the message from the lyrics well. I really wish all the best for LANKS to break through and hope to see more heartfelt singles released by LANKS.

Chart history: 22-14-9-6-2-1-2

newup.png 3. Jamala - Like a Hero


One place up again is this power ballad by Like a Hero. The majestic sounding still amazes me and Jamala's voice is always very soulful. The instrumental arrangement is amazing and this might stay in the chart for quite a while. If Jamala did come back to Eurovision with this song, I'm sure it still has a strong potential to win the whole thing again.

Chart history: 2-1-4-3

newup.png 4. Charles – He Knows


Charles's songs are usually instrumented with quite a few instruments and synths, and moody while chill as well. This feels very intimate and the stripped back nature at the start grapples my attention. The melodic line is very interesting and the song has an unusual structure which features a new musical idea after the second chorus which does not resolve to a final chorus and I find the ending very interesting and unique. This song was composed by Charles as a tribute to her deceased friend.

Chart history: 11-9-4

newright.png 5. Destiny - Je me casse


Destiny is still serving the sass this week! The jazzy sounding is very unique and modern which I don't hear it often in Eurovision. This song should have a good chance to win Eurovision for the first time for Malta and Malta certainly deserves to win after years of hard work! (However, I want to see the return of MESC though because it usually contains a lot of great pop songs!)

Chart history: 14-5-5

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
newright.png 6. Max Richter ft. Mari Samuelsen, Robert Ziegler – Follower (17-6-6-6)

Another non-moving week for Max Richter with his Follower. 3 weeks at no. 6 sounds quite... uh... ominous?

newdown.png 7. Noirκve ft. Giulia Foddai - Summer Don't Go (10-3-7)

Dropping a few places is Summer Don't Go. This moody sound still gets me every time but the length of this song means you will need to sit down and absorb (adsorb?) its fullness slowly. I thoroughly enjoyed this song but as it stands some songs this week are stronger!

newup.png 8. Kyns – I can never be (26-18-21-11-8)


This very intimate song about confronting the idea of "feeling deserving" of good things has grown on me slowly, and became the first of the two songs entering the top 10! The instrumentation is fantastic and the glitchy effects are a nice touch!

newdown.png 9. Shamir – Ocean Eyes (17-20-14-5-7-9)

That falsetto never ceases to amaze me! Back then I think I *mastered* falsetto but after years of non-practice I did sound like a shrieking goat that would initiate complaints from my flatmates... if only I could live alone! Brilliant technique and tone quality overall!

newup.png 10. salem ilese – (L)only Child (39-15-10)

The instrumentation is so unique that it became the second of the two songs entering the top 10! The song is such a style that I really enjoyed listening, and hopefully it will grow further more inside me!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
newup.png 11. Primo – Do It Again (27-32-20-11)
newup.png 12. Shalisa – Karma (30-12)
newup.png 13. Lil Nas X – MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) (47-13)


I must admit I never thought a hip-hop song would ever be charted as I generally do not like this genre, let alone being the highest jumper this week! Oh my! It is such a tune and the lyrics are just so relatable. I'm so glad it has done very well commercially and garnered loads of attention in the mainstream media. Congrats Montero!
newdown.png 14. VICTORIA – imaginary friend (11-2-1-7-8-8-14)
newdown.png 15. iRO – Yesterday’s News (40-16-14-15)
newup.png 16. Mark Clennon, Rainer + Grimm – Stray (43-19-16)
newdown.png 17. Isyana Sarasvati – IL SOGNO (11-7-10-17)
newdown.png 18. Hana Oceans – Austers (19-15-12-18)


I must say I am very amazed at how this was instrumentally arranged. The melody line is quite memorable and the emotions are raw. How did this get only 25 views though????
newup.png 19. Winning Team – Where I Belong (36-38-19)


Another big jump this week belongs to Where I Belong. Winning Team has made yet another fantastic progressive house track. The instrumental drop is very catchy and a good transition from the buildup. I hope they will break into the mainstream EDM scene soon as they really deserve it!
newup.png 20. Tayler Buono – IFHU (35-20)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
newup.png 21. LP – One Last Time (44-33-21)
newup.png 22. CΙLINE – Hotel (15-XX-42-29-22)
newne.png 23. Loney Dear – Mute / All things pass (23)

Highest entry goes to a song bubbling under top 50 last week. His vocal is vulnerable and the song is very introspective as well. Despite sounding quite stripped back, the impact is felt and the package feels genuine. I think this can grow even more in me over the next few weeks.
newne.png 24. Ninski, Sky M. – Hazy (24)
newne.png 25. Daughtry – Heavy Is The Crown (25)
newdown.png 26. VICTORIA – growing up is getting old (13-4-2-1-12-17-26)
newdown.png 27. Senhit – Adrenalina (29-19-16-27)
newdown.png 28. Cmqmartina – se mi pieghi non mi spezzi (30-18-28)
newup.png 29. KOKO, Nina Chuba, Dillistone – 22s (43-29)
newup.png 30. Motez ft. The Kite String Tangle – Give Me Space (37-30)
newup.png 31. George Glew – Satellites (45-48-31)
newne.png 32. Andrea Di Giovanni – Crown (32)


A bop it is! I might consider sending this to BJSC 135 amongst many other potentials so keep an eye on some of the songs in the chart! But seriously how does it even get less than 100 views??? sad.gif
newne.png 33. Loi – I Follow (33)
newne.png 34. Caroline Culver – Walking On Glass (34)
newne.png 35. Nick Wilson – Lead Me to the Water (35)
newne.png 36. BATHSHEBA – LALA (36)


Another decent pop song by BATHSHEBA after her successful Hit 'N Run. The chorus and instrumental break are memorable and I think this would further grow in me.
newne.png 37. Mimi Webb – Good Without (37)
newdown.png 38. Ilse DeLange – I Will Help You (31-38)
newdown.png 39. Dean Lewis – Falling Up (18-23-33-13-39)
newne.png 40. Saint Nomad – Stay (40)
newup.png 41. ROSIE – Retail Therapy (19-18-20-4-8-34-50-41)
newup.png 42. Stealth, Aslove – So So Young (49-42)
newne.png 43. Becky CJ – I Think I’m In Love With My Best Friend (43)
newne.png 44. Kings Elliot – Bitter Tonic (44)
newre.png 45. Shadowkey, Britt Lari – Next One (48-XX-45)


This is a decent banger that I think would be a shame not to feature in the top 50 for at least 2 weeks, hence the re-entry!
newne.png 46. Mathieu Des Longchamps – Mademoiselle Tomovic (46)


Loving the chill vibes and the French in this song!
newdown.png 47. Hidden Citizens, Katie Herzig – I Follow (38-25-47)
newdown.png 48. Natalia Gordienko – Sugar (29-36-25-44-48)
newne.png 49. RORI – The Same Way (49)

Hi there! Great to hear about (L)only Child being charted soon for you! I feel like I'm the (l)only fella getting this charted when it's such a great song! Love the chords in Do It Again and the retro sounding and hopefully it could get into top 10 next week! MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) ruled me now haha. Last Time and Dance might need some time to grow though. Thanks for commenting!

Hi, uhsting!

Nice to see Isyana Sarasvati is still on Top 20! Although, IL SOGNO isn't really my cup of tea
I see Winning Team there. I also like some bigroom-ish EDM songs. I used to put their Settle For None last year. Hope that I could see more songs like this on your chart!

Overall, great chart!

Hi Uhsting smile.gif

Well that puts me in the mood for Eurovision, looking forward to it now! So far only heard the UK entry.

Good to see LP doing as well as usual in your charts, it's great. Imagine Dragons is a goodie too.

The rest I don't know! ohmy.gif I hope to start hitting your youtube videos around Eurovision though - I like to hear them all new at the same time so none of them have an advantage when I hear them for the first time and I'm guessing what'll do well biggrin.gif

cheers!

John

Hi Ken! IL SOGNO is such a mind-blowing song that it does get on with me for a while but it does sound very out-of-the-box. Winning Team has some great songs lately and Where I Belong is a fabulous track by them so hope to see them in your chart soon! Thanks for the reply!

Hi John! This year's Eurovision is the strongest in years and I'm quite surprised loads of entries have made their way to my top 10 already ohmy.gif One Last Time gets catchier in every listen so it could get even higher but we will see wink.gif Follow You is a decent track by them that has Imagine Dragons written all over it. I hope it does get more popular in the charts soon. I stopped making YouTube videos about charts because they usually take a long time and a lot of effort to input all the chart data in. However, it might be a good idea to do recap videos on new chart entries since most of the entries are not well-known! Thanks for the comment!

I don't blame you dropping the video charts, I spent an hour last night just bunging 12 buzzjack song contest golden oldies together for a playlist idea I'm going to feature. Just not enough hours in a day to all the things I want to do! :lol:
