Forum - Other Charts: Australia - Non ARIA - Unofficial Catalogue Singles Chart Pt. 2

Part 1: http://www.australian-charts.com/forum.asp?todo=viewthread&id=45245

For the uninformed, this chart is where I take a snapshot of the iTunes chart every Sunday afternoon and document the 100 highest selling songs that were released at least 2 years ago.

Oct 9th

The new year of charts comes with a new #1 for...I'm not sure what reason but I'll guess it was possibly X Factor since that's all over this week's chart. So congrats to Passenger's "Let Her Go" which reaches to top in its 50th week. He keeps WALK THE MOON at bay as they return to #2. As I mention X Factor, I believe it's responsible for 3 big debuts in the top 10, with U2 getting only their 2nd ever entry with "All I Want Is You", while it's the first time in for London Grammar and Paloma Faith, with perhaps not the most expected choices in "Wasting My Young Years" and "Can't Rely On You". Possibly through association, London Grammar also come through with "Strong" lower down. Sam Smith bolts into the top 10 for the first time with "Stay With Me", which is also joined by a debut from "I'm Not The Only One". Staying in pairs, we have 2 debuts from Beyonce's 4th & 5th albums, I'm not sure why. We also see Hillsong United's huge smash "Oceans", and Lil' Mo's minor 2003 hit "4Ever". Christina Aguilera's "The Voice Within" has been on ads for X Factor and comes in at #71. And despite being a constant presence in the Spotify top 200, Gnarls Barkley only just now debut with "Crazy". Also big news this week is that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis drop out of the chart for the first time ever with "Can't Hold Us".

Thanks Hijinx. Also enjoying the stats
Oct 16th

It seems the chart has gone into amnesty mode of late. For a 3rd week in a row, we have a high charter finally gaining a #1 peak, with this week belonging to John Legend, perhaps thanks to him having a new hit on the chart. Right behind him is another big new peak, going to Cold Chisel who didn't put in any work to achieve it, as it's almost certainly due to Jessica Mauboy's cover for The Secret Daughter, which sees "Flame Trees" with a huge jump to #2, outpeaking "Khe Sanh", which is typically ahead of it 90% of the time. 2 weeks after a rare chart dropout, Ginuwine continues to impress with "Pony" back in the top 10, which prevents Avicii from getting there, though "Wake Me Up" does score a new peak of #11. Michael Andrews' version of "Mad World" had a huge midweek jump though by the time we get to Sunday, it can *only* manage a #16 debut here. Hilltop Hoods have a good week with "Cosby Sweater" now attaining a strong peak of #22 alongside "The Nosebleed Section" re-entering. Speaking of re-entering, we have some faces not seen in a long time, namely "Gangnam Style", "Wicked Game", "Pumped Up Kicks" and "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)". There are only 2 other debuts after "Mad World", both coming from Kings Of Leon on the back of their 7th album's release week.

Oct 23rd

We had potential for another long runner amnesty with Jess Mauboy's cover of Ed Sheeran's "Photograph" giving it a bit of a boost, but it's way behind the top spot because the big news of the week appears to be hype for the final Wolverine movie, with the trailer presumably prominently featuring Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt", which in the past has popped up here, but now it's sitting top 40 on iTunes and able to take the top spot here. I sincerely hope ARIA can just let it chart finally. Avicii continues to climb with "Wake Me Up" now reaching the top 10, while presumably Battlefield 1 ads have brought "Seven Nation Army" back in the chart yet again, just slightly getting a new peak of #12. Beyonce's "Single Ladies" reaches the top 20 for the first time ever, stopping "Cosby Sweater" from doing the same, though it does get a new peak anyway. Same case with Bruno Mars' "Marry You" just behind it, and it's a good week for Bruno with "When I Was Your Man" debuting as well. I can't believe I'm typing this, but thanks to Violent Soho covering it on Like A Version this week, one of my all time favourite bands, Silversun Pickups actually have the top debut this week with their biggest hit "Lazy Eye". Just a little lower is The Whitlams' "No Aphrodisiac", which I believe is the 10th Hottest 100 #1 to reach this chart (or 11th if you include Nirvana), sadly "Buy Me A Pony" and "Knights Of Cydonia" have never been even in the top 1500 whenever I've recorded it (even "Asshole" has done it!) so I don't have much hope to complete the set. But of that set, it's also worth noting that Gotye has a new peak this week. There's a long overdue debut for Blue Swede who presumably would have a huge run if I'd started this chart sooner. '90s Brit Pop finally has representation that isn't "Wonderwall", with both "Don't Look Back In Anger" and "Bitter Sweet Symphony" debuting. We can check off two more #1 singles as "I Try" and "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" get in for the first time. For the second week in a row, we have a Tears For Fears cover debuting, this time Lorde's "Everybody Wants To Rule The World". People can finally buy "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" so that debuts, and lastly we have the latest victim of liltwave, as the original "Return Of The Mack" sneaks in, which happens just as Tracy Chapman finally overtakes Jonas Blue, whose "Fast Car" would be #19 this week if it were eligible.

It's up to the record company, Sony for Johnny Cash I believe, to allow a song to chart, not ARIA.

Thank you for making this chart by the way. Really enjoy reading your analysis.
Hear hear on I_E's comment

Btw, The Whitlams, Oasis and The Verve were almost certainly all because of Rockwiz on Saturday night, as they had a '90s special, which was heavy on the Britpop.

Blue Swede, I assume, is because of the GOTG2 trailer being released, apparently a less interesting trailer than Wolverine, but whatevs...

Surely TMTC must end its run soon, pls, would love to trim some of those 55-weekers now
Oct 30th

It's time for the annual SPOOKTACULAR chart edition, and what better way to represent it than..."The Horses"? I suppose there are 4 horsemen of the apocalypse. Anyway, due to the leap year, we skip over Halloween and will get gradually further away from it in successive years so I'll just be happy to see "Thriller", "Monster Mash" and "Time Warp" get in at all. Interestingly, they enter in the opposite order they did to last year. Despite already being on the chart, "Ghostbusters" remains behind all 3 of them. The top of the chart is mostly business as usual as the regulars continue to tussle for new peaks though none of them get it. The #1 position may be anyone's game for now, but 2 weeks from now there'll be a new major contender, one that has been the de facto #1 most weeks of late. The top debut of the week comes from Empire of the Sun on the back of their 3rd album release, with most attention drawing back to "Walking On A Dream", though "Alive" also re-enters. Lady Gaga didn't manage to enter with anything last week when her album was out, but now the Carpool Karaoke segment has done the trick as she enters this chart for the first time ever, with several of her past hits, perhaps surprisingly it's "Born This Way" that gets the highest. Some new peaks of note includes Guy Sebastian's "Battle Scars" which re-enters in strong fashion, but trumped by John Farnham's "You're The Voice", which after so many weeks unable to even crack the top 50, finds itself all the way up to #20. Local Oasis tribute act DMA's did Like A Version on Friday and the lads did a cover of Cher's "Believe" which appears here for the first time, alongside their original choon "Delete". Though other tracks from The Secret Daughter are slipping, Crowded House get a debut with "Better Be Home Soon" this week, as does Unique II's "Break My Stride" for some reason, which sadly stops "Return Of The Mack" from being next to the return of the Mack...lemore. And naturally due to QLVG hype [citation needed], ABBA get their first ever entry with "Dancing Queen". Queen's "We Will Rock You" drops out for only the 2nd time ever, though the first one was when Prince took total control of the chart so this is perhaps more noteworthy.

For the record, today's chart is typed up, and I'll post it tomorrow after my exam, reasonably big news this week
I wait with baited breath
Nov 6th

As has been the case for several months now, "Chasing Cars" is still discounted on iTunes, but it has slipped on this chart lately. Things turn around as it's featured on the frontpage now for the Great $1.19 Songs section and it roars back to #1 here. It perhaps helps that it's the only 'old' song that's on display without scrolling. Also featured on there are "Bust A Move", "Copperhead Road" and "Gangsta's Paradise" which re-enter, and "Cosby Sweater" which bolts up to a new peak of #13. Incidentally its partner in release week "Freaks" has a huge jump into the top 10 this week. Incidentally, Snow Patrol's jump to #1 prevents the 3 next songs from attaining a new peak, and things might get tougher for those songs as a BIG contender will be entering the charts next week. There's a big jump for "Fast Car" which puts it again ahead of Jonas Blue. Birds of Tokyo have a new album out this week, and that might be helping "Lanterns" re-enter but I also heard it on an ad this past week so maybe it'll hang around a bit longer. '70s glam rockers Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel have the highest debut. Next debut comes from Alicia Keys who has an album out this week, and her version of "Empire State Of Mind" debuts before the original can. We're still 10 months away from another version of the song potentially debuting, but now we get the RocKwiz version of "The Sound Of Silence" by Emma Louise & Husky. With the Vengaboys touring here, "We Like To Party!" re-enters and "Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!" debuts. John Lennon's "Imagine" re-enters on the anniversary of the French attacks which sent it to #1 on this chart last year, and on a happier note, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" begins its annual ascent. Two weeks after "Bitter Sweet Symphony", The Verve enter a little higher with another track on the same album, a fair bit higher. Something I was expecting to be a story of a week ago was the 2 year anniversary of Taylor Swift's "1989" album...but nothing debuted, even though several tracks from the album have popped up around the heights of the chart. I'd have expected "Wildest Dreams" to get in first, but instead, "Blank Space" debuts here. 6 of the highest selling songs of all time were released in 2011, and now the 4th of those (we're still waiting on LMFAO) just barely sneaks in with "Moves Like Jagger". This also is partially responsible for Hozier finally dropping out with "Take Me To Church", which is #106 this week.

Also finishing off the Stats thread this week <3

Yay for Chasing Cars, and for the whole top three!
Nov 13th

As you probably know, 2 days ago it was announced that legendary songwriter Leonard Cohen passed away. As tends to be the case, the market responds accordingly, so his work dominates the top end of this chart. Of particular note is his most famous song "Hallelujah", which naturally goes to the top of this chart, but it's also accompanied by the many other famous recordings of the song that have come along. Most notably Jeff Buckley's recording, but the top 200 on iTunes also included a live version by Leonard Cohen, both the version that k.d. lang recorded for her 2004 album, and the one she recorded for the 2010 Winter Olympics, the Rufus Wainwright version most people heard through "Shrek", and also the recent Pentatonix cover which of course is not on this chart. That's not all he has to show here though, as another 5 of his songs also debut here. This has all overshadowed what looked to otherwise be the big news of the week, as we celebrate the 2nd birthday of "Uptown Funk", which has been surpassing the #1 on this chart nearly every week, but because of the unfortunate timing, can only debut at #5. Even though last year's chart was right on the dot of Rememberance Day, Redgum did not re-enter in November, but this time they do so with a new peak of #11. Maroon 5 also significantly improve their peak with "She Will Be Loved". Last week Alicia Keys' solo version of "Empire State Of Mind" debuted, which made sense as her new album had just been released. This week it drops out and it replaced by the original version. Similarly, "Blank Space" drops out this week, to be replaced by "Wildest Dreams". The only other debuts of the week are songs that you'd perhaps think are too forgotten to make it in here, but nonetheless we have a debut for Jagged Edge's big 2001 hit "Let's Get Married", and thanks to that same discount promotion that is aiding "Chasing Cars", we have a debut for B.Z. & Joanne's version of "Jackie", which some aus-charts members might be amused to know is sitting right next to Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know". Also the influx of Leonard Cohen puts a strain on the chartsitters, so "Titanium" is at its lowest position ever, and "Someone Like You" drops out for the first time ever (though it took a few weeks to debut unlike "Rolling In The Deep" which has appeared on every chart).

I believe Joanne (but not B.Z. ) was also touring with the Vengaboys this week which would have helped Jackie.
lol maybe that's why it's finally on iTunes & Spotify after all these years, and perhaps there's built up demand for it
Possibly Leonard Cohen's first ever number 1 on a singles chart.
Nov 20th

It's a jam packed week but I have to start with some tedious housekeeping first. In 2011, the band Marconi Union recorded the song "Weightless", an 8 minute ambient track which has become famous in psychological studies as being the most relaxing song of all time. It sells reasonably well too, but I've previously overlooked it for whatever reason. It's only sold enough to appear here a few times, but the first time it did, it was enough to be #1, back in July. So it retroactively takes over the week "Wuthering Heights" was #1, which affects a whole bunch of chart figures. It was also #54 in 24/10/2016, and #27 in 31/10/2016, as well as re-entering this week. So a lot of songs have lost their old peaks, too many to mention, but the key ones of note are "It Wasn't Me", and "Nothing Else Matters", both bumped down 1 spot. "Timber", and "It Wasn't Me" also were both #100 on weeks that "Weightless" should have appeared, so they both lose a week on their tally. In addition to those two, "Moves Like Jagger" debuted at #100 on the most recent week, meaning that it no longer counts as an entry on this chart. As with the previous instance, I won't edit the posts because it will take too long, but all future charts & stats will reflect this correction.

Moving onto this week's chart, it was a competitive battle for the top, but after trailing for most of the week, "Uptown Funk" has luck on its side as it claimed the top spot only this morning. Think of it as an early hatchet burying, as unlike a lot of long runners, "Uptown Funk", has the #1 peak all sewn up already. Speaking of those long runners, we've recently had another one of those Adele TV concerts just in time to bump "25" back up the charts, and of course, her catalogue of hits back up this chart. Leading the chart for most of this week was actually Bonnie Tyler for reasons I'm not sure of, so "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" has a huge improvement from its old #100 peak. There's even more noteworthy peak improvements this week too, as a viral performance of "Enter Sandman" as well as the release of Metallica's latest album sends "Enter Sandman" all the way up to #6, perhaps catharsis for "Nothing Else Matters"' peak dropping. Metallica also get their 3rd ever entry here, another from The Black Album as "The Unforgiven" sneaks in. Nelly's on tour here and has a big influx, notably "Ride Wit Me" getting a new peak of #7, and a debut for 2010 hit "Just A Dream". Same goes for TLC who have a huge week with "No Scrubs" and "Waterfalls" gaining new peaks, and "Unpretty" debuting. It's also in general a great week for early 2000s nostalgia, with debuts from the likes of Blu Cantrell, Mya & Dante Thomas. Darude's "Sandstorm" would've been a huge hit on here a couple of years ago, but only belatedly gets a debut this week. Because we can never have enough Eminem songs on this chart, this week saw the 20th anniversary of his debut album, which has resulted in the title track getting a belated iTunes release, and a debut here. Continuing from last week, "Titanium" again sees a new low, perhaps the incoming influx of Christmas songs could see it out?

Nov 27th

A very close battle today with the top two right next to each other on iTunes. Perhaps it's appropriate that the incumbent loses out to what has been the dominant force this week. With Crowded House being inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame, and today playing their first show in 20 years, all eyes are on them and "Better Be Home Soon", which recently debuted thanks to The Secret Daughter, goes all the way to the top this week. Mark Ronson takes solace that he already has #1, and he might have to wait a while to get there again because Mariah Carey is just about ready to take her annual residence. There's plenty more Crowded House to be seen, notably "Don't Dream It's Over" and "Fall At Your Feet" both making the top 10. It's also good in general for Australian artists, John Farnham gets a top 10 peak at last for "You're The Voice", and thanks to A.B. Original's excellent Like A Version featuring the man himself, Paul Kelly's "Dumb Things" has a debut, with "To Her Door" not far behind it. There's a debut for former contemporary Christian musician turned Gilmore Girls composer Sam Phillips, and also one for Joni Mitchell. By sheer fluke, David Guetta's "Hey Mama" which hasn't been seen high on the chart for weeks, comes back just high enough on the first week it became eligible, and so here it is. Maroon 5 also amusingly debut with "Moves Like Jagger" a week after they were ruled out of the chart by Marconi Union.

Dec 4th

It's December so welcome to the perpetual reign of Mariah Carey. This starts 5 days later than last year which might be down to timing of the week or just competition. With the rest of the Christmas song not quite in full gear yet and not any competition elsewhere, a lot of usual hits here climb back up, with most notoriety going to Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, who reaches the top 10 for the first time in 58 weeks on the chart! What can be noted with Christmas entries this week is that there's a hint of fresher songs slipping in this year. Despite not getting in last year, we've already got entries from Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber, while Pentatonix's Christmas track from 2 years ago gets its first time to get in. The two longest song titles in the chart this week are both re-entries right next to each other, with Fall Out Boy getting a new peak too. Christmas also brings The Wiggles into the chart for the first time ever. Among the week's dropouts is "Titanium" for the first time.

The Sweet debut is ace!
Is it in a trailer or something?
Yep, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2
Nice to see Somewhere Only We Know debut in the Top 5. Anyone knows why?
Dec 11th

For those not keeping score, this is "All I Want For Christmas Is You"'s 5th week at #1 all up. Her perpetual high performance goes some way to overshadow what would overwise be complete dominance this week. Rest assured Chris Martin is alive and well, but Coldplay are currently touring here and the market has responded in tremendous fashion with nearly every Coldplay single you can think of (that's eligible) making an appearance, many of which are in the top 10. Incidentally it's their two best performers here, "A Sky Full Of Stars" and "Fix You" that can only match former peaks, but every other one of their tracks here is hitting a new peak. Christmas festivities continue to populate the chart, this week it's the more vintage tracks taking prominence over contemporary entries, Brenda Lee even gets an early new peak. Though overshadowed somewhat here by Coldplay, Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood's Australian tour is also well received here, with "Somebody Like You" and "Before He Cheats" taking big peak improvement, while Keith has a couple more debuts from his back catalogue to boot. iTunes seems to have taken away the Great $1.19 Tracks section, so even though both are still discounted, "Cosby Sweater" and "Chasing Cars" take big drops, the latter just narrowly missing the chart.

Firework incoming #1
I often wonder if it really should be on the chart nearly every week; sales are always split between two versions
Coldplay
Dec 18th

If you haven't seen, Mariah Carey is now top 10 on iTunes, so shockingly she holds here. This week's recipient of absurdly high but not high enough is "Uptown Funk" which is challenging for top 50 on sales this week. This is largely because of Bruno Mars being the latest in the viral Carpool Challenge which sees the chart flooded with hits of old, some familiar to this chart, some fresh. "Locked Out Of Heaven" does the best to land at #3, while the follow up single "When I Was Your Man" is incidentally next at #12. It's roughly 6 years since Bruno was #1 on the charts with "Grenade" which sees a debut here, as does "Treasure". We're mostly taken over by Christmas songs moreso, and some like Mariah's "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", and Pentatonix's "Little Drummer Boy" hit new peaks this week. John Legend picks up his 3rd ever entry with a rendition of "Winter Wonderland", while the only other debut is Seal's "Kiss From A Rose", which was used quite prominently in triple j's Musical Massacre for the breakfast team's send off. Darude's "Sandstorm" narrowly missed out.

Chart is a little late just because well, it was Christmas. Rest assured for accuracy's sake, I did record it on time yesterday, as perhaps should be evident by the biggest influx of Christmas tunes yet. Mariah #1 is a no-brainer, but we've got new peaks all over the place, John Lennon at #2 & Wham! at #3 for the big hitters. It's also an above average performance this year for Brenda Lee, The Pogues & Paul Kelly who reach the top 10 for the first time. The rest of the new peaks for Christmas songs are too plentiful to mention. Plenty of debuts too and a real mixed bag of them. We've got some oldies like Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, some recent ones from Coldplay, Dropkick Murphys, Band Aid 30 and Michael Buble, and some people having a laugh as we get a debut for Kevin Bloody Wilson, and also two tracks from Love Actually. But Christmas Day is also known in some chart watching circles as gift card day, as a predominantly younger audience takes over the chart and changes up the guard a bit. Eminem performs well as he does every year, while Taylor Swift & Panic! At The Disco are able to get some new peaks. Some big hitters like "All Of Me" and "The Horses" are at what I believe are all time lows, and some 60+ week runners drop out too.

The Christmas songs will mostly plummet this week. However, reports are that Last Christmas is continuing to sell well after Christmas due to the death of George Michael. His other songs together with Wake Me Up Before you go-go are charting as well. [

Jan 1st

Apologies for making you wait for what is one of the wildest charts we've ever seen, by one metric it is the wildest because we've only got 32 songs here that were on last week's chart! The big news of the week of course was George Michael's passing, which unfortunately for the sake of this chart, happened the day after last week's chart was posted, so what we get is potentially the bare minimum impact, though he's still quite soundly locked the #1 position with "Faith". It along with "Careless Whisper" were his only solo entries on this chart prior to this week, though the latter narrowly misses out behind "Freedom '90" this week. Filling out the top 6 are the other two tracks to re-enter the ARIA Chart this week, "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" and "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me". His Aretha Franklin duet and #1 hit "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)" also manages to get into the top 10. The circumstances also mean that "Last Christmas" is the sole surviving Christmas song from last week, with "All I Want For Christmas" still doing reasonably well to be in the 400s on iTunes. Also re-entering in the top 10 is London Grammar's "Strong" off the back of their recent touring and newly released song. Other than that, we get to see all the different ways that people are choosing to see out 2016. One way would seem to be the song "Auld Lang Syne", which if you don't know why, fortunately Mariah Carey explains it in parentheses on her version. Eventual #1 "Firework" gets a new peak because people think of fireworks on new years, while various other 'party' tracks are amongst the re-entries. It also seems to be a week of reflection, as we see the return of tracks from the also 2016 departed Prince & David Bowie. On the other hand, Avicii fans clearly just want someone to wake them up when it's all over. I also want to point out two things, namely that #50 on this chart is #200 on iTunes, though normally #200 on iTunes is around the #28 mark on this chart, and also that "Ice Ice Baby" is slightly outselling "Under Pressure" and I'm very ashamed at you all.

Once again I've been busy with stuff but I made sure to have the chart typed up on time as usual

Jan 8th

"Uptown Funk" has been the de facto #1 since it was released, except between Leonard Cohen, Christmas & George Michael, it's only now managing its 2nd week at #1 after 9 weeks on the chart. It does have a challenger now though in the form of its late 2014 rival "Thinking Out Loud" which reaches a new peak this week off the back of Ed Sheeran releasing new music, so now it has the same peak as "Photograph". Suffice to say it's a good week to be Ed Sheeran here, his older hits have disappeared from this chart pretty much around the same time the new ones came along, but now they're all back. The more recent "Don't" also gets its debut this week. Apart from that, this is probably the closest thing we've had to a 'normal' week in a while, so the top 10 is mostly filled by the more recent canon, this is good news for Elle King who is able to improve her peak from #5 to #3. Besides those 2 mentioned, the only other new peak this week is for Darude's "Sandstorm", which re-enters 1 place higher than its first charting week. Ed Sheeran isn't the only artist to potentially benefit from big hits, as Train have a big re-entry with "Drops Of Jupiter", and Taylor Swift gets another debut from her "1989" album with the original version of "Bad Blood". We also have a battle raging on for the first 2015 song to reach the chart, between a freakishly persevering viral dance song, and a seemingly forgotten Australian hit, both of which are a small handful of weeks from eligibility.

Well, perhaps the "seemingly forgotten Australian hit" from 2015 is not that forgotten if it has a chance to debut in the next few weeks lol.
I'll need to check my archives but I think this week was the first time in ages that I saw it in the top 350, so the perception was somewhat warranted
Jan 15th

Another week, another me being busy with EOY things and so this was typed up yesterday Anyway, perhaps in preparation for Australia Day, we have Daryl riding with the horses back to #1. There's not much else to note in the top 10 this week though there is a big debut from the 2007 film "Music and Lyrics". It would seem also that iTunes is re-promoting its hot $1.19 tracks, as Snow Patrol charge back into the chart and "Cosby Sweater" nearly gets a new peak as well. Being on an ad keeps paying Richard Marx dividends as "Right Here Waiting" climbs to #13, and fortunately the much better "Hazard" also gets to debut. We have some core '90s debuts from Haddaway and New Radicals. Lastly, "Right Round" debuts for some reason, so scratch off another #1 hit on your bingo card. This week though is all about the new peaks. Darius Rucker has a huge improvement to #28 with "Wagon Wheel", while re-entries from Eminem, Paul McCartney, Lifehouse, Neil Diamond and Toto all see new heights. Congratulations to "Chicken Fried", as though Zac Brown Band have never made the Australian singles chart, they've now charted here for 52 weeks. We also have a big dropout as AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" leaves the chart for the first time, despite a couple of their other songs still being in this week.

Jan 22nd

I'm going to post this on time for once! It was an extremely close battle for the top this week too, with the top 3 within 5 places of each other. Completionists who'd like to see a week with the entire chart having peaked at #1 will be delighted that "Thinking Out Loud" has fixed up its #2 peak to a #1. I actually have no idea why but a lot of his tracks are back to being as high as they were two weeks ago. Top 10 otherwise is mostly regular business, though I will note a rare case of "Someone Like You" being ahead of "Rolling In The Deep", and we also have a big re-entry for Vanessa Williams' "Save The Best For Last". Speaking of which, amongst this week's debuts are many #1 hits, many of which are dire...I'm looking at you Charlene who bizarrely has 3 versions of the song high enough to chart! There's also Train, Aqua & Puff Daddy, while Kasey Chambers' new album has a lot of her songs boosted, with the relevant party here being "Not Pretty Enough". Other debuts include the first ever Backstreet Boys track to feature here, "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)", while Kanye West picks up another entry in "POWER". GANGgajang also return at the same time they did last year with Australia Day on the way. Perhaps the most exciting news is that we have songs from 2015 in this chart for the first time, and it's actually a 3 way tie. Just missing out on that distinction is the bizarre choice of I Prevail's 'Punk Goes Pop' cover of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space", which is from December 2014, but we have a collection of January 2015 representatives, two of them #1 hits from Ellie Goulding & Meghan Trainor, the latter benefitting from being a later released single from the album, while against all known logic, there's also Silento, but you already knew who it was.

Huzzah! Ed gets there finally! Now for Walk Thr Moon.
Ed Sheeran is number one on the singles chart and the catalogue albums chart as well.
Jan 29th

Normally I'd groan at it, but this week I'll more than allow it. Shout out to the legend himself Ben Lawson who should be most pleased to see that we have the #1 it shoulda been on Australia Day. Given that "The Horses" was already riding high, it's hard to know if he's solely responsible. Either way, I'm sure we can all agree that it's fitting. It's another week of regular suspects filling out the top 10, though Australia Day festivities do see Men At Work reach another new peak all the way up to #9, while it would seem that an airing of the 2011 film "Footloose" has brought Kenny Loggins back into the chart in a big way, and it's worth noting that "Footloose" has matched his other big soundtrack hit "Danger Zone" with the same peak of #6. That film also sees debuts from Big & Rich and Blake Shelton. New peaks abound elsewhere in the chart, Mr. Big re-entering at a new high of #15, Darius Rucker soars into the top 20 with "Wagon Wheel", Panic! At The Disco's very on/off "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" gets a little closer to top 50 glory, and let's hear it for Deniece Williams re-entering at a new high of #21. Australia Day also brings in Australian Crawl's "The Boys Light Up", while the rest of the debuts are perhaps associated with triple j. Most blatantly so, we have Massive Attack's "Teardrop", courtesy of AURORA performing a cover for Like A Version on Friday, while the Hottest 100 results have brought a spark in interest for a lot of artists' catalogues, mostly recent, but it just so happens that one of Amy Shark's few released singles is actually from 2014, so "Spits On Girls" is a debut. Plenty of Hottest 100 alumni re-enter this week, such as Peking Duk, Vance Joy, Gotye, Rage Against The Machine and Flume, while the last debut also falls under that category, with Bag Raiders' "Shooting Stars" at #28.

Just some housecleaning first, I missed a debut last week, LANY's "ILYSB" has been around since 2014 and for some reason is being pushed as a new hit now in 2017, so it debuted last week and continues to chart this week. I've fixed last week's chart but not the commentary so apologies if there's anything that looks wrong in it now. This week we have the same batch continuing to play musical chairs at the top. The Ed Sheeran rebounds choose not to be remotely consistent and they're all up this week again. Meanwhile re-entering at #5 is Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know", which just happens to be the same position it charted at last time. Marconi Union are also back with their sporadic appearances, way up at #10 this time. New to the top 10 this week though is Bruce Springsteen's "I'm On Fire", reaching a new peak in its 10th week charting as The Boss is touring in Australia currently, and making headlines for things that he said during those shows. All of his stuff is up this week, with "Dancing In The Dark" at a new peak of #11, and debuts for classics like "Born In The U.S.A." and "Born To Run", but also for some reason, a bonus track from his 2012 album in "American Land" sneaking in. Some long charters get new peaks this week, with "Stolen Dance" up to #16 and "Drops Of Jupiter" up to #19, while "Smells Like Teen Spirit" returns to the chart for the first time this year, in a big way at a new peak of #21. Panic! At The Disco also continue their ascent with "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" now up to #29, and Ellie Goulding's recent entry gets some strong momentum up to #30. Though all the Ed Sheeran tracks are up, the only new peak in the bunch is "Don't" at #38. Other debuts this week include War's classic rock staple "Low Rider", and the original poorly written song that uses 'beautiful' as a noun from Labrinth. There's also a debut at #73 from Mark Wills, a country artist I don't think I've ever heard of.

Feb 12th

Gosh it's been hectic with this. We've been having about 40 dropouts a week all year, and this week there are no less than 15 debuts on the chart. Many of them come from the same band. Currently on tour, the chart this week pays big dividends to Guns N' Roses, who take the top spot with chart regular "Sweet Child O' Mine", which is now the slowest climb ever to the top spot having charted for 67 out of 71 weeks. Alongside that, other popular hits "November Rain", "Paradise City" and "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" all occupy the top 10 for the first time, "Patience" only unable to make the cut because there were already too many GNR tracks. And that's just the re-entries from around when the tour was announced, we go to slightly deeper cuts for the debuts, notably "Welcome To The Jungle", "Live and Let Die", "Don't Cry", "Estranged" and "You Could Be Mine". Debuting in the top 10 is the fiddle-tastic "The Devil Went Down To Georgia", perhaps thanks to this viral video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1hnBv12-uk If you need more memes, then Bag Raiders' re-enter with "Shooting Stars", which I since discovered is the subject of many meme videos. On the Ed Sheeran report, it's mostly positive for him again this week, aside from "The A Team" taking a bit of a tumble. He adds another entry to the list though as his first #1 hit "Sing" debuts at long last. Also in with a good week is Lady Gaga, whose Superbowl performance effect lingers here nearly a week after the fact. "Born This Way" is the highest and gets a new peak in the process, "Bad Romance" and "Poker Face" are not far behind but can't quite improve their peaks. She also debuts with some song I've never heard called "Just Dance". On the topic of #1 hits though, Ellie Goulding continues to improve with "Love Me Like You Do", as the iTunes chart in general is just filled with tracks from the new Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack. Alongside Ellie, The Weeknd now makes his debut to the chart with "Earned It (Fifty Shades Of Grey)". His big 2015 hits "The Hills" and "Can't Feel My Face" are often still selling well so see later this year if they can get in. Keep ticking off those ARIA #1s as we get another debutant with The B-52's "Love Shack". Also though his effect was strongest last week, Bruce Springsteen oddly debuts with "Streets Of Philadelphia" this week. Sticking to the classic '90s, we also have debuts for Edwyn Collins and...B*Witched. Lastly sneaking in for the first time ever is Pink Floyd, with their classic "Wish You Were Here".
