Now it's done! We do have a second No.1 hit that can hold at the top for 9 weeks. The one doing so is Swedish DJ AVICII with his Europe wide hit Wake Me Up!.

If one is surprised bout that double figure of long standing No1 hits – well, the year 2012 we had with Nooossaa! by Michel Telo and Diamonds by Rihanna two hits spending 10 weeks at the top.

Next single track by AVICII You Make Me enters the list at number 34 this recent week.


Ellie Goulding sees her single Burn rising two places to Nr.4 in its sixth chart week. For the first time she is listed inside the Top 5 and additionally she right now is the second most visible female within the German list in 2013. 62 times she was listed so far. The crown belongs to queen Rihanna who so far has 82 listings under her belt.

After it became a hit in the UK also Sonnentanz by Austrian Klangkarussell is released in new mixes and a completely new vocal version in German speaking countries too. It makes a return to the Top 20 for the first time in half a year. So far the track spent 56 weeks inside the survey – it is the second longest run for a hit right after Tage wie diese by Die Toten Hosen that is listed for the 75th consecutive week right now.

Mentioning Die Toten Hosen – the band right now is the German act most listed in 2013. So far leader CRO now is eclipsed by one single listing – he "only" collected 72 untill now.

Dutch DJ Martin Garrix finally becomes famous also in Germany. His track Animals lands at number 17 – in Switzerland the track already is Number 2. He is the most successful Dutch act since Caro Emerald hit the Top 10 in May 2011.


Past issue I paid attention to two acts that had a bunch of chart hits without touching the Top 10. This week German electronic prince SCHILLER beats all the feats mentioned before. With his new album Opus storming to number 1 on the album list the most touching album from it Swan Lake makes it into the singles list also. The remake of the well known Tchaikovsky song lands at number 57 and is nothing less than the 17th singles chart entry for Schiller. He never peaked higher than number 12.
