It is the sixth week on Top for Asaf Avidan and DJ Wankelmut. Slowly the Israeli singer approaches the big success of Ofra Haza–the one and only Israeli act to top the German charts before– in 1988. She had an eight weeks stand at Number 1.

Almost that impressive is the result of German DJ Wankelmut. He is the first German act since early summer 2010 that can occupy the Top in its home country for six weeks. Back than it was Eurovision star Lena who had the honour of fascinating the country for that long period. In fact she only had five consecutive weeks at number 1 when she was chosen for representing Germany. Two months later after her success at the contest itself she returned to the Top. The last German act having at least six consecutive weeks at the Top was indeed Schnuffel the cuddly singing toy that led the charts with its Schnuffel Song back in early 2008.

A week before her new album is on sale P!nk can attract a huge bunch of people with her single Blow Me (one last kiss). The track jumps 28–10 in its 10th chart week. Was it the breath taking performance at the MTV awards ceremony or the announcement for her performance on German TV that made the song that attractive? In fact it is P!nks fourth consecutive Top 10 hit. Only the two superstars of the year Flo Rida and Taio Cruz perform better at the moment.

A certain gainer of the MTV awards is One Direction. They won three awards and performed on the show. Their latest single What Makes You Beautiful takes a leap back to number 52 after the show–coming from 98.

Italian band Frei.Wild becomes mainstream in Germany. The last single Feinde deiner Feinde went straight to number 19 in August. So does the new offering Mach dich auf (Get Up). Both are lifted off the upcoming album Feinde deiner Feinde (Enemies of your enemies) scheduled for October. The new song is about the need of getting active. More or less this one could be recorded by Die Toten Hosen as well. Probably the success of the latter one this year supported the band. There is only a slight problem with longevity of sales. Die Toten Hosen still are noted in the list meanwhile almost all singles of Frei.Wild left the charts after a single week.



A bunch of reentries can be watched at the downer quarter of the charts. The Killers see their single Runaways turning back to chart life a week before their album Battle Born is released.

Back to chart life for unknown reasons is Puruit Of Happiness by KiD CuDi Feat. MGMT & Ratatat. The song can achieve number 75which is a new peak after his late first appearance in June this year.
