Slow And Long Running Hits

It is still holiday time in Germany. Meaning the recent chart is quite calm and the industry avoids releasing hot new tracks. Only 3 new entries plus 5 re-entries ... well ...

DJ Antoine, Timati & Kalenna profit of lacking competitors and rise further two places to number 4. It is a proper season’s hit now. What it means for the careers of DJ Antoine and Timati I told before. US singer Kalenna now matches the position she entered as a member of DirtyMoney in spring this year. 2011 is the year of her big debut with two Top 5 hits right now.


Slight changes under the best German productions. Leading the pack still Tim Bendzko with Nur noch kurz die Welt retten (number 2) followed by newcomer Casper with So Perfekt (14) and Jupiter Jones’ Still. All three kind of intellectual pop music in sharp difference to most of international productions selling in huge amounts.

On the rise again are Milk&Sugar remixing the Miriam Makeba-song Hi-A Ma Pata Pata: 42–33.

Worth beeing noticed the fact that Paul & Fritz Kalkbrenner spend a 70th week in the charts with their Sky And Sand. The track now is noted in the downer half of the charts almost a full year long only spending a few weeks outside the Top 100. Meanwhile UNHEILIG collected 79 weeks with Geboren um zu leben. It is now the third longest seller without a break.

The fun story of the week is i sing a liad für di by Austrian folcloristic singer Andreas Gabalier. He entered the charts first back in April after performing at Carmen Nebel’s TV show. It was a small sensation cause the song wasn’t scheduled for any release. It became popular the last months and a lot of DJs remixed the song. Finally a sublabel of major UNIVERSAL decided to release the original on CD as well in Germany. July th 29th was the day – unfortunately the CD only contains the original recording by Andreas Gabalier himself. Probably that’s the reason why the track enters at a disappointing position 79.
