Hot Spot 11-22-13

Still Klingande holds firm at number 1 with their hit Jubel. It is now the fourth week at the very top. After released as an EP bundle with Jubel also the first single of the project Punga can enter the list at number 59. Like the other song Punga performs in German speaking countries better than in its home country France.

German chart surprise Milky Chance finally touch the Top 3 with their Stolen Dance. Also in Austria the duo becomes a Top 10 ect, Switzerland reports the track still rising.

After more than five years in charts Miley Cyrus for the first time can launch a Top 10 hit. Wrecking Ball stops at number 6 after the star performed the song in Germany's still most watched Saturday night TV show Wetten dass...?!. It is already her 11th chart hit – that was a long way.

Star guest number two in Wetten dass...?! came in the face of Celine Dion. Her single Loved Me Back To Life gets a sales boost and jumps 80–38. It is the highest rank the star can achieve since six years.


Hyped as the sensation of the week Lady Gaga's new album Artpop fails to become number 1. It stops at number 3 behind EMINEM and The Rolling Stones. The single Do What U Want (Feat. R. Kelly) can get some benefit from the release of the full album but also stalls at number 17 what is only a medium result for the superstar.

The real sensation of the week is the return of a 45 years old song. It was caused by–you already guess right–a performance within a casting show. Nights In White Satin is the song in question that brings after a break of 27 years British band The Moody Blues back to chart life. The song was performed at The Voice Of Germany. Thanks to Nena three candidates had to sing the classic, which started its first chart run back in March 1968 peaking at number 18 on the list issued for May 15th. It was re-released at the end of 1972 when it had a successful ride to number 1 in the US. That second chart run stopped at number 27 in Germany. In 1995 Sandra recorded a new version reaching number 86 for one single week. Now the original recording again appears at number 39 and–yes–it is far and away the eldest song charted in this decade and probably the song with the longest chart career of all times.

Hit number 2 caused by The Voice Of Germany is a classic German rock song never charted before. Ohne Dich recorded by Selig is probably one of their most popular song. When it was recorded in 1994 the band was anything but well known. The video was played on music TV in hot rotation–anyway it had no chance to chart. This year British synthpop duo HURTS offered a cover version that had a short chart appearance in September. In their concerts taking place right now in Germany that song is one of the most referred in newspapers. Now the original can made it up in the list and lands at number 52. Usually hits generated by casting show performances disappear after a single week. That destiny is very certain for Selig too. But in a few weeks a TV Noir-compilation will appear. And the most watched youtube video of that concert serial is Ohne Dich performed by Selig:


Kid Ink Feat. Chris Brown are permanently on the way up. Shoe Me this weeks jumps exactly 20 places to number 47.

Katy Perry's next single Unconditionally rises full 32 places stopping at number 54 two weeks before its release. I guess this will be a big hit around Christmas.

Aired on Thursday, 14th November, the Bambi award ceremony leave some early traces in the list. Miley Cyrus-mentioned above-was one of the winners. Second star of the nigth (or first?–nobody really knows) was Helene Fischer who hosted the show and got an award too. Thanks to this big TV presence her last single Atemlos durch die Nacht re-appears in the list. It will probably rise further next week. Also her biggest hit to date ich will immer wieder … dieses Fieber spür'n re-appears at number 93.

Already two months released Steve Aoki's offer Boneless catches slowly fire. It enters the charts this week at number 70.

London Grammar's Strong also is on the way up. It stops at number 74 one week before full CD release count into the survey's result. Where will they land next week?

Kölsche Jung spent a second week inside the list.

EMINEM still is number 1 in the album's list with his The Marshall Mathers LP2. The track only delivered with the deluxe version Beautiful Pain (Featuring Sia) makes it now as a single track into the list. Additionally the single Love The Way You Lie (Featuring Rihanna) sneaks in again at number 100 and gives the rapper having six different tracks listed inside the survey–a feat we've last seen in March 2012 by Pitbull.
