33-12: New Nr. 1 – coming from Israel

It was a question of time. After two weeks at runners up position Asaf Avidan can achieve the Number 1 spot with the help of DJ Wankelmut who had remixed his Reckoning Song new named to One Day. Everywhere one goes the song is playing around. It is the real summer tune of 2012. Also in Austria the song starts catching fire. This recent week it enters number 3 there.

One Day is the ninth Number 1 in 2012. It is the sevent consecutive Number 1 for an European production. Since late April we only had such songs reaching number 1. Asaf Avidan is only the second Israeli artist who can reach Number 1 in Germany. So far only Ofra Haza topped the charts in 1988 with Im’nin’alu. As an Israel-German collaboration it is also the second German production topping the list in 2012. In 2011 we only had one of this kind.


Highest new entry comes from a German duo. Max Herre feat. Philipp Poisel offer Wolke 7 (Cloud 7) which enters the list at number 6.

Also the second highest new entry comes from a German project. Y-Titty is a comic duo that releases songs on youtube. Der letzte Sommer (The last summer) is their second single. It starts chart life at number 15. Having six German songs inside the current Top 20 productions coming from here are popular as last seen in late April this year.
