25th of June 2014: King Soccer Rules

After 10 weeks Andreas Bourani returns to the Top with his WM anthem Auf uns which originally wasn't an explicit sport's song. Heavy use of the song during coverage of the WM made it more or less the signature song for Germany's run to the throne.
Returning to number 1 after more than two months was an astonishing record set in January 2013 when Gangnam Style did so. The Korean hit spent almost the whole time in between at number 2–only once stepping aside for P!NK and her Try–Andreas Bourani meanwhile performed similar but once dived to number 4. Anyway this week is the 12th consecutive issue of having a German production at number 1. Such a presence wasn't seen since summer 2007 when Mark Medlock & Dieter Bohlen, Monrose, Azad & Adel Tawil and Culcha Candela occupied the top for twelve weeks.

In it's 40th chart week Atemlos durch die Nacht by Helene Fischer rises 9–5. This new demand comes due to her performance while the winning team arrived back at home.
The song now spends 30 weeks inside the German top 10 what is the second longest run of all times.

Also the official anthem We Are One (Ole Ola) by Pitbull featuring Jennifer Lopez & Cláudia Leitte turns the way of moving and is back at number 9.
The not so official WM song by Shakira Dare (La La La) makes an even bigger leap by jumping 21–12. It is a new peak for the song in its 17th chart week.
Further significant moves are made by:
- Tage wie diese by Die Toten Hosen (81–43)
- '54 '74 '90 2010 by Sportfreunde Stiller re-entry at 59, not yet newly recorded. The original '54 '74 '90 2006 went number 1 back than.
- We Are The Champions by QUEEN re-entry at 60, which is the first time since its original chart run in 1977/78 when it made it to number 13. Charted for more than 36 years it is one of the songs with the longest chart span and the oldest song charting in 2014 so far.
- Das dicke dicke Ding! by Mister Santos re-entry at 61, it's only the second time the song can chart
- Steh auf, mach laut! by HÖHNER new at 63
- 7 Nation Army by The White Stripes re-entry at 69; it is the highest position since summer 2010
- Schwarz und weiß by Oliver Pocher re-entry at 82
- the WM anthem from 1990 Un' estate italiana by Edoardo Bennato – Gianna Nannini re-entry at 83, making Edoardo Bennato the artist charting again after the longest absence in 2014, almost 25 years he wasn't seen inside the German list (and Un' estate italiana is indeed his one and only song charting in Germany)

Rising songs not linked to the WM are hardly to find inside this weeks list. But they are there. At number 17 for an example. Norvegian producer Martin Tungevaag is spotted by an international scene which gives his Wicked Wonderland the right boost. It is the second track from the northern country that can achieve the German Top 20.

A Canadian reggae song also is getting more attention this week. Rude by Magic! goes 96–66. Boom Clap by Charli XCX enters at 72 and Swedish Otto KNows goes 100–73 with Parachute.
