March 4th 15: German Eurovision Preselection

The top end of the german song chart stays almost frozen–the first four places show now move at all as there is Faded by Alan Walker still #1 followed by STEREOACT, the twentyøne piløts and jonas Blue.
Having Faded a fourth week at #1 this is right now the most successful song of the still young 2016. Let's wait what here will happen next weeks.

A little change goes on at #5/6 as Rihanna feat. Drake rise one single place eith Work. It is 17th song by Rihanna that can reach the top 5.

The first real mover lands at #12. It is Ghost by Jamie-Lee Kriewitz the song which was chosen on Thursday 25th of February for representing Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest. In December singer and song won already casting contest The Voice of Germany.
Right after the TV show the song managed an chart re-entry at #65. Now it shoots to #12 falling one place short of the result from December. It exactly matches the peak of past years winner Andreas Kümmert who did not start at the European stage at all. By failing of entering the top 10 at all Ghost probably does not have the best perspectives for the contest in May. Let's wait what happens.
Runner's up Alex Diehl sneaks in at #44 with Nur ein Lied. Also he misses the result of his first chart appearance back in November 2015 when he stopped at #33.


Second new song inside the top 20 is Flo Rida's My House which goes 21–16. It already took the song more than ten months to go so far as it first appeared as an album cut of same titled collection in April 2015.

Highest new entry starts chart life at #26. Taken from his new album Udo Lindenberg is back with Durch die schweren Zeiten. It is the highest charting song by him since late 2011.

Due to its use in a Tatort criminal a song recorded in 2011 enters the list for the very first time. The duo Smith & Burrows consists of Tom Smith of The Editors and Andy Burrows of Razorlight. Both covered the #2 hit Wonderful Life originally by Black in 1987. The song now charts at #47. It is the fourth version of the tune.

New songs at the lower end of the list:
88–72 In The Night by The Weeknd
84–74 Middle by DJ Snake Ft. Bipolar Sunshine
