Last week there were 24 new songs entering the charts – as much as never before. This current week the result changes completely. We only have four new tracks in the list. The highest song entering the list is an old one. Stern des Südens gains new popularity duely to the success of soccer team of FC Bayern München that won the European Champions League on May 25th. A week later they also became master of the German DFB pocal–it is quite certain that the Bayern-Fans United rise some places further with their single next week. By the way–it is only the 19th week in more than 15 years that the single can collect. The sports team is much more successfull.
Highest new track comes in at number 42 thanks to the release of the Pacha Summer 2013 compilation. So far Bang Bang (Explode) was available only on independent download platforms. Now it is brought to the masses. The track itself is far from a really new composition. It is much more a further remix of the Explode theme by Shaun Baker last seen on the list in 2010 as Gib mir 10 (Explode 3). Back than Shaun Baker collaborated with Austrian Darius & Finlay. The new rework repeats that constallation: DF&S stands for the initials of the three producers.
Number 42 by the way is the highest place the tune ever reached in its eight years long chart life.
