Hot Spot 05-03-13

A second week at the top for P!NK Featuring Nate Ruess and their ballad Just Give Me A Reason. P!NK with this week has collected more Top 10 weeks than German Xavier Naidoo and is only one week short of French David Guetta. Next week that will change too.

Finally on stage in Germany the Imagine Dragons see their Radioactive climbing to number 4. It is so far the highest position they achieved worldwide.

Highest new entry comes in at number 6 in the face of Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams. Get Lucky is the highest ranking song ever in the German singles’ charts for both acts.



The release of new mixes (in fact it is only one remix by Noonie Bao) propells I Could Be The One to new heights. AVICII VS Nicky Romero reach a new peak at number 37 after 16 weeks inside the survey.

Labrinth re-enters with Express Yourself the list–the digital single finally is properly released in Germany also.

On the way up is Robin Thicke feat. T.I. + Pharrell. Blurred Lines got some speed and jumps 92–56. The release of the single is scheduled for June.


DSDS effects
The show aired on April 20th generated some hits as well. First significant effect is the return of Justin Timberlake’s Mirror back to Top 5 status. Ricardo Bielecki staged with the song.
Second winner is Loreen. Her My Heart Is Refusing Me spent only four weeks in the list when it was first released in past November. Now after Susan Albers sang the song live the track is back in the list at number 60.
Erwin Kintop–loser of the show–helps ten years old Lieber Gott back to the list.
And also Lisa Wohlgemuth can activate some fans for buying Morgens immer müde by LAING which she brought on stage in her own version.


DSDS ain’t the only show on TV which propells sales. Also The Voice Kids achieves high rates and a visible effect on the charts. Aired on April 19th the third Blind Audition Show featured 12 years old Sarah who staged with Move In The Right Direction. The original recording by gossip climbs 19 places afterwards. (Additionally the song was featured same night on the third show of Let’s Dance)

Second teen star was Laurin from Austria. He staged with I Won’t Let You Go originally performed by James Morrison. The song counts as one of the most loved for castings–the last four months saw the track charting three times. Always after it was performed on a TV casting.

Also Hindi Zarah gets her very first chart entry in Germany after her song Beautiful Tango was performed by Dana.


After his reincarnation as Snoop Lion the artist formerly known as Snoop Dog releases his frist raggae album. The single taken from it did not reach the audience that well–but the track Smoke The Weed (featuring Collie Buddz) immediatly enters the charts at number 78.

At the very end the current list brings a small sensation for statistics lovers. So far British Black Sabbath in Germany was counted as a pure One hit wonder according to their singles releases. They reached number 1 at the end of 1970 with single Paranoid. And than–no other song entered the singles list. Now with digital release of teasing single God Is Dead for the next album 13 the band gets a second chart entry in Germany. The song lands at number 99–not much but after 42 years the band technically gets status as a two hit act. Plus it narrowly misses the record for being the longest absent act of the singles charts. Only Paul Kuhn has had a longer break outside: 43 an a half year.
