10th of Oct 2014: Meghan Trainor goes Number 1

Yes, there is a new number 1–again. With USAmerican Meghan Trainor and her All About That Bass it is the first complete non-European song since end of March that can make it to the top in Germany. The last Non-European doing so was Mr. Pharrell Williams with his hit of the year Happy. Nonetheless Meghan Trainor already is the fourth USAmerican act in 2014 on the top of Germany's single charts. With Pitbull Feat. Kesha and Sam Martin there were two further acts successful here too.

Meghan Trainor also ends the five months long period of straight number one songs. Her All About The Bass tops the list in its seventh chart week. It is a slow rise only beaten up by Rather Be offered by Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne


There is one completely new song inside the Top10 coming from Australian Sheppard. After Geronimo was released on CD the track goes up 10 places landing at number 5. It is the highest Australian act since last years number 1 run of Changes by Pnau which came to chart honour due to the deep house remix by Faul & Wad Ad.
All in all there are nine tracks inside the survey under attendance of an Australian act. That's pretty cool for that country.

Bouncing back five places Blame by Calvin Harris feat. John Newman spends a second week inside the Top 10. A boost might follow in next weeks time when full CD release sales count in the survey.
With Komm lass uns gehen by Revolverheld dropping three places to number 7 the Top 5 misses a German production–the first time since October 2013. Probably it ends now one of the most successful times for German productions since years.

On The Way Up
The Imagine Dragons still know where they're coming from. In occasion of the League of Legends World Championship the band released Warriors which goes this week 84–58. Their first hit in Europe Radioactive became popular after its use in a commercial for The Assassin's Creed III.
After twice sneaking in at number 97 ANIMALS by MAROON 5 now catches a little more fire and re-enters at number 64.
