Capital Cities and their Safe And Sound holds firm a second week at the Top of Germany’s singles list. So we are whitness very calm times. Since November 2012 we only see number 1 hits which at least stay for two weeks or longer at the top. The last time we had a situation like this was back in early 2010 when between end of January and first week in June five tracks reached the top for at least two weeks. Than the Eurovision success of Lena broke the smooth way of number 1 changes. Well … we are just watching some euro trash on TV and bidding for the one or another act …

New at number 2 is Xavier Naidoo with his teasing single from the upcoming album Bei meiner Seele. The track comes in three different versions–so everybody can find a beloved mix. The song so far is the best ranking track produced by a German artist since October past year when Wankelmut had his heydays with a remix of Asaf Avidan’s Reckoning Song.

Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams reach a new peak with Get Lucky. The song lands at number 4 in its third chart week and is the most successful track at all of both artists.


Meine Soldaten by MAXIM is used in the commercial spot for dooloop.tv. After an impressive start five weeks ago the track returns to the Top 20 after heavy rotation on TV. Another song used for a commercial campaign can be found rising 52–37 with YourTouch by Blake Lewis.

Without any big campaign Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke feat. T.I. + Pharrell rises into the Top 20 too. This journey probably ain’t at the end yet.


Last week the DSDS impact was very low. Only one track made it into the list. This week the show is a little more present in the current survey. Three years old Get Shaky by The Ian Carey Project re-enters at number 46 after Lisa Wohlgemuth performed the track live on May 4th.

Three weeks ago Kid Cudi released his new album Indicud. Probably thenew stuff also emerged a demand in some older tracks. Pursuit Of Happiness–his last chart entry from spring 2012–returns this current week and lands on a new peak: number 51.

Released on Monday 29th of April This Is What It Feels Like only had half a week for entering the survey last issue. Now with full weekend sales Armin van Buuren Featuring Trevor Guthrie rise 99–57.
