It is MR PROBZ again who takes the No.1 crown with his hit Waves. It is the third week for the track on the sunny place which makes it the most succesfull Dutch production since 15 years. At the very end of 1998 it was Loona who had her second number 1 single Hijo De La Luna spending three weeks at the top too.
Waves at the top also gives us a third number 1 in a row that at least spent three weeks on the top. Exactly one year ago we had that situation for last time. Back than it was Rihanna’s Diamonds that had a 10 weeks run in Dezember followed by will.i.am & Britney Spears and their Scream & Shout (9 weeks) and Passenger’s Let Her Go (5 weeks).
After their fulminant victory on the German national final to the Eurovision Song Contest and a full week on sale Is It Right by Elaiza storms the Top 10. The song lands at number 4 which is the fifth consecutive year that the national entry can reach the top 10. Such a success (or call it euphoria) wasn’t never seen before.
Also song number two performed on the show (and recorded on the EP) Fight Against Myself can gain some chart success. Number 50 is the place it sits pretty this week. At the very end of the list even the upcoming single Without appears. That's what I call success.
Other national finalists climb up the list too after a full week of sales. The runners up UNHEILIG sees his second song staged live on the show Wir sind alle wie eins jumping 71–29 (the leading entry Als wär’s das erste Mal vicecersa collapses 10–25)
Third on the show Cotton Candy Hurricane by MarieMarie goes 75–39, second song Candy Jar comes in at 82. Second act on place 3 Santiano only enters number 69 with Fiddler On The Deck. Well, it is the highest rank the band can achieve in the singles charts ever. On the album list it already has two number 1 hits under its belt.
In its 15th week on sale Liebe by Sido enters the top 20. It started chart life with the release of the album 30-11-80 back in December. Than it sneaked around the list raising slowly to a medium hit and two weeks ago finally had its release as a proper CD single. Number 16 is the result so far for that song.
At number 38 an act celebrates its 25th anniversary with its 25th chart entry titled 25. It’s Die Fantastischen Vier that worked so hard for this sensational constellation. Their first chart entry was in September 1992 when Die da?! started to become one of their biggest success till today.
Without a proper release as a single Sean Paul’s Hey Baby climbs up the list. This week the track lands at number 47 and it’s right on the way to become the artist’s next hit.
On sale but overseen for some weeks Enrique Iglesias Ft. Pitbull finally raise some awareness. I'm A Freak goes 89–56 this week. Still far away from the levels both acts perform usually. Even the production team of The Cataracs is used to rank in higher regions.
Released as a proper CD single Weinen by Adel Tawil manages to reach number 57. Well, also this artist usually collects Top 10 positions. Maybe the fact that an unofficial remix by Roy Jones can attract much more people than the original mixes causes the weak chart position. Why spending money for a boring track if there is another around with much more appeal (and for no money)?
It is the third chart run for A Little Party Never Killed Nobody by Fergie + Q-Tip + Goonrock. The track now climbs to number 67 again in its 36th chart week. In early summer 2013 it peaked at number 10. Is this new demand for the song caused by the fresh mothership of Fergie or its misfortune on the Oscars?
Scheduled for a release as single track on 28th of March Down By The River by German new super darlings Milky Chance climbs already up the charts weeks before. This issue it stands at number 68 as an album cut.
Beginning of April Rebecca Ferguson tours througout Germany. In anticipation of this event the demand in her last single Light On raises again. The track re-enters at number 86.
Deep House probably will accompany us for 2014. The next act coming from Germany is Parra for Cuva ft. Anna Naklab. The DJ (+ singer) took the classic tune from Chris Isaak to rework it in a dance/lounge style. The result can enter the charts after a month on sale. The original recording took a long way to its hiatus too. Recorded in the late 80s it became a hit with its use in David Lynch's movie Wild at Heart in 1990. Number 9 in Germany was the result more than 20 years ago.
After 84 weeks inside the charts Sonnentanz by Austrian duo Klangkarussell is now the track with the third longest consecutive chart appearance. This current week it eclipses the result of Adele's Rolling In The Deep from 2010. Only Geboren um zu leben (94 weeks) by UNHEILIG and Heavy Cross by Gossip (96 weeks) spent more consecutive weeks on the list.
The list of all weeks spent on the charts no matter how many chart runs the recording had looks litlle different. Here Sonnentanz ranks at number 11 to date.
