Chartifacts: *Another attempt! I found myself falling out of the music scene quite quickly to the point where I had not heard most of the hits from the past 6 months. (Can you believe I hadn't heard Closer until this week?) - So I sought out to make sure that the entire top 50 were songs I hadn't yet heard/heard much. *Since it's a new chart and the nature of it required a clean slate (again), there's not much to report on until next week but Bruno Mars manages to grab his first No.1 since 'It Will Rain' back in 2011. *An album chart was trialled in 2016, but after realising I really don't listen to many albums it sort of became pointless, I'll be thinking of something extra I can replace it with though.
Worst Song: James Arthur - Say You Won't Let Go^ ^Even whilst being completely seperated from music and not hearing any major hits, I did manage to hear this. A lot. It's boring. So it becomes the first worst song of the 2017 cycle! Last edited:
wow at not having heard Closer. But onto more important things. Many good songs here but in particular I like seeing Versace On The Floor, Starboy, Rockabye, Slumber Party, Bad Things, Black Barbies, Make Me (Cry), Black Beatles, 24K Magic, True Disaster, I Feel It Coming, Blow Your Mind (Mwah), On Hold, Party Monster, Shout Out To My Ex, Catch 222, Capsize, After The Afterparty and Scars To Your Beautiful. I don't hate Say You Won't Let Go but for sure was very annoyed when it spent 7 weeks at #1.
Chartifacts: *In the first few weeks of this chart, there will be a lot of shifting and stabilising naturally, but rising above it all is Delta Goodrem slamming into the No.1 spot for the first time since 2008 with 'Heavy' - for which the music video dropped this week. Also debuting is 'The River' in at No.5 for Delta. *Little Mix take the largest rise of the week, with 'F.U.' rising up 17 spots to a solid position No.6, they also rise with 'Shoutout To My Ex' rising 7 to No.28 *The Weeknd enters the top 10 with 'I Feel It Coming', moving up four positions to a new peak of No.10 *Owl City are moving up the chart quickly, with Christmas tune 'Humbug' moving up 10 positions to a new peak of No.16 - Looking likely for another rise entering christmas week. *Guy Sebastian takes the 2nd largest rise as 'Set In Stone' is anything but, moving up 13 positions to a new peak of No.19 *The Weeknd also debuts further down at No.42 with 'False Alarm'
Worst Song: James Arthur - Say You Won't Let Go (2)
You are as bad as me, if not worse at keeping up with music on a constant basis! I have restarted my chart twice since 2010 and I don't want to ever stop it again because I know how bad things will turn out in the end!
Not exactly the best of Top 10s you have there, mainly because most of those songs I don't even know But at least its great to see The Weeknd and Britney Spears up there!!! Great appearances for Clean Bandit, Tove Lo, The Veronicas, Sia and Alessia Cara of course!!
I actually agree with you on your worst song this time! It may not be the worst, but I really dont like it!!
Chartifacts: *Delta Goodrem stays put in the No.1 spot with 'Heavy', taking her 2nd week at the top - 'The River' also remains in at No.5 *Britney Spears edges her way closer to her first chart leader since 2012, as 'Slumber Party' reaches a new peak of No.3 - her highest position since 'Criminal' (HP-1, 2012) *Alessia Cara has a big week, taking both the largest climb and the highest debut in 'Scars To Your Beautiful' and 'Seventeen', moving up a massive 41 spaces to No.8 and debuting in at No.15 respectively. 'How Far I'll Go' also climbs up a position within the top 10, reaching a new peak of No.7 *Alan Walker finds herself waiting just outside the top 10 with 'Alone' at No.11, hoping to see her 2nd top 10 after 'Faded' (HP-4, 2016) *Little Mix have the second biggest climb of the week, shifting upwards 11 positions to a new peak of No.17 with 'Shoutout To My Ex', the group also reach a new peak at No.4 with 'F.U.' *Lady Gaga debuts with current single 'Million Reasons' following the video release, in at No.36 *Of Verona released a song called 'Paint The Pictures' way back in 2012, now the CW is using the song as promotional material for their upcoming drama series 'Riverdale' - this sees the song debuting in at No.43 *Fox also has an upcoming drama series - though unlike the CW's, this one is a musical. The cast of STAR have released 'I Bring Me' ahead of the premiere and it has debuted in at No.46
Worst Song: Peking Duk - Stranger^ ^This song is annoying and sounds way too much like other songs I've disliked a lot. Hopefully this doesn't stick around too long because I'm already so sick of it. Last edited:
The River and False Alarm debuting last week is cool while I do enjoy Seventeen and Million Reasons this week. Brilliant to see Slumber Party, Scars To Your Beautiful , Shout Out TO My Ex and Capsize move up this week. Pity about Stranger being your worst song though.
Chartifacts: *Delta Goodrem is able to stand her ground this week in the No.1 spot for the 3rd week with 'Heavy' *Britney Spears & Little Mix both move up a single position with 'Slumber Party' and 'F.U.' up to new peaks of No.2 and No.3, respectively *Alessia Cara has another stellar week as 'Scars To Your Beautiful' is able to half its position and shift another 4 positions into a new peak of No.4, 'How Far I'll Go' climbs 1 to get to No.6 and 'Seventeen' is up 8 spots into a new peak of No.7 *Lady Gaga has the biggest rise of the week as her current single 'Million Reasons' smashes up 22 positions to a new peak of No.14 *The Veronicas are also making big moves, shifting 10 from No.29 to No.19 with 'On Your Side' *Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone have the highest 2 debuts this week, making it the first two tracks they've ever had on the chart - taken from the La La Land soundtrack, 'A Lovely Night' and 'City Of Stars' debut in at No.25 and No.32 respectively. *Of Verona have the 2nd largest climb of the week, bulleting up 17 spots to a new peak of No.26 with 'Paint The Pictures' because of some further hype for the CW's new show 'Riverdale' *Zayn & Taylor Swift sneak into the chart as well with 'I Don't Want To Live Forever' coming in at No.42
Chartifacts: *Britney Spears has taken the top spot for the 5th time in the charts history with 'Slumber Party', following her four No.1 hits from 2011 - 'Hold It Against Me', 'Till The World Ends', 'I Wanna Go' and 'Criminal' - this makes for one of the longest amount of years between No.1's (6 years!) - It is also the first No.1 for Tinashe. *Jax Jones & Raye both make their chart debut with 'You Don't Know Me', in with the highest debut at No.15 - expect this song to potentially climb rapidly in the coming weeks. *Zayn and Taylor Swift have the biggest rise of the week, with 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever' rising 26 positions to a new peak of No.16 *The Vampire Diaries' Kat Graham also makes a big jump, the second biggest actually - with 'All Your Love' rising 17 spots to a new peak of No.19 *The XX have a new hit in at No.27 with 'Say Something Loving' *JP Cooper has the last debut of the week with his 'September Song' in at No.40
Worst Song: Peking Duk - Stranger
*apologies for being a day late this week Last edited:
Chartifacts: *Britney Spears is having a 'Slumber Party' in the No.1 spot, having stayed into a now second week. In fact, the rest of the top 4 proves impenetrable - an interesting collection of four songs gaining momentum to be (potentially) big hits on the chart. *Jax Jones and Raye won't let that challenge stop them, as 'You Don't Know Me' rises 10 positions to a new peak of No.5 - which is also incidentally the largest rise of the week. *Taylor Swift and ZAYN also have no problems settling into the top 10 in at No.10, rising 6 with 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever' *Ed Sheeran released two massive hits this week, but only one of them finds favour on the chart - 'Shape Of You' earns the highest debut of the week by landing in at No.13 *No stranger to the chart by now, Sia also debuts in at No.19 with her new single of choice 'Move Your Body' *Rihanna was once the queen of this chart - having landed so many top hits it was hard to keep up, last years 'Sledgehammer' broke that dry spell only to start a new one. 'Love On The Brain' debuts in at No.28 hoping to find some success in coming weeks. *Shakira and Maluma debut in at No.32 with 'Chantaje' - the only foreign spoken song on the chart! *Finally, Train's new hit 'Play That Song' rounds off the debuts by landing in at No.40
Worst Song: Peking Duk - Stranger^
^At this point this song isn't so much from me actually experiencing it, but simply from nothing taking it's place yet. That said, don't expect this to appear on the chart anytime soon
Great to see Move Your Body and Love on the Brain debut for you, Move Your Body only just missed out on entering for me this week too. Yay for Alessia doing so well, her track has slowly grown on me, especially after hearing it on an EOY broadcast the other day. I love that You Don't Know Me and F.U are in the top 10 too! There's a lot of stuff I love here, such as Shout Out to My Ex, Rockabye, Set in Stone, Black Beatles, Capsize, It's Quiet Uptown and Black Barbies, so great to see them all here!
Chartifacts: *Last week I called the top 4 'impenetrable' - well, The Weeknd took that challenge and then smashed it into bits. Rising a massive 46 positions (the highest rise into the top spot ever!) to a new peak of No.1 is The Weeknd's 'Party Monster' - the first top hit The Weeknd have scored on this chart. *ZAYN & Taylor Swift have no problem cutting through the chart either to rise to No.2, up 8 with 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever', which is now ZAYN's highest charting hit. *Sia was the last of the big four contenders for No.1 this week, but 'Move Your Body' settled into the No.4 spot this week, up 15 and with a new peak. *The Vamps have a massive re-entry into the chart, with 'All Night' smashing back into a new peak of No.11 *Tove Lo rebounds this week, 'True Disaster' moving up 19 positions (the second highest rise!) to No.18 *Green Day has the highest debut this week (the first of nine!) with 'Troubled Times' following their new lyric video and a timely inauguration coming up, the song is in at No.19 *Amber Run aren't far behind, charting for the very first time in at No.20 with 'Fickle Game' *Halsey has the second song from the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack on this chart, as 'Not Afraid Anymore' drops firmly in at No.23 *Not far behind, Emeli Sande has 'Hurts' fall comfortably into the next position, in at No.24 *Any other week, a No.26 debut wouldn't be only the 6th highest entry, but Olly Murs is going to have to settle for it and rise later with 'Years & Years' *Marian Hill and Jon Bellion have their respective first debuts on the chart this week too, in at No.29 and No.30 with 'Down' and 'All Time Low' *Despite holding the worst song earlier this year, James Arthur has impressed with new single 'Safe Inside', premiering safely inside (heh) the top 40 in at No.32 *Less comfortable in her debut spot this week is Ariana Grande as 'Everyday' scrapes into the chart in at No.45 with a little help from Future.
Worst Song: The Chainsmokers - Paris^
^Honestly can these guys just go away? They had one good song and I'd really prefer to never hear from them again now. This song could have at least had the decency to feature someone good. Last edited:
Great to see Move Your Body make a giant leap, would love to see it get the top spot! Sad to see You Don't Know Me make such a dramatic drop though, hopefully it can somehow turn it around. Yay for Everyday entering, as well as the rise for Love On The Brain.
Chartifacts: *Two parties make up the top 2, but it's the 'Party Monster' by The Weeknd that maintains its No.1 spot for the second week. 'I Feel It Coming' also remains at No.10 for the 5th non-consecutive week. *Amber Run are quick into the higher section of the chart, rising the highest this week - up 17 position to a new peak of No.3 with 'Fickle Game' *Troye Sivan released his new video for 'Heaven' this week, and the effort payed off as he nabs the biggest debut of the week in at No.4 *A few weeks ago I complained that 'Castle On The Hill' was boring and inferior to 'Shape Of You' (TW-6), but this week Ed Sheeran has won me over and Castle has debuted in at No.7 *Olly Murs hasn't actually had a top 10 hit in 'Years & Years' but he's coming very close this week as he rises 12 positions to a new peak of No.14 *Last year MAX made his debut on the chart with 'Gibberish' and was able to reach No.13, this year he's found a new song to take a crack at the higher sections of the chart. 'Lights Down Low (Orchestral Version)' premieres in at No.18 this week, with help of Gnash. *Jon Bellion rises 9 to a new peak of No.21 with 'All Time Low' *The Vampire Diaries star Michael Malarkey has his chart debut this week as the six and a half minute song 'Scars' lands at No.23 *Bruno Mars' new single 'That's What I Like' finds a beginning home of No.25 *Netflix dropped 'A Series Of Unfortunate Events' this week, and the final number 'That's Not How The Story Goes' drops in at No.36 - the second entry for Neil Patrick Harris on the chart following his feature on 'Dream On' by Glee Cast (2010) *One Ok Rock and Childish Gambino also have debuts in this week, in at No.47 and No.49 respectively with 'Take What You Want' and 'Redbone'

Oh wow Party Monster last week. Good #1 though. Redbone is good too. Ooh at another chart where I Feel It Coming has spent numerous weeks peaking at #10 and yay at the rises for Shape Of You and Love On The Brain. Lol Paris, my mind continuously wavers on it but I can certainly agree with wishing The Chainsmokers would dissappear
Chartifacts: *The past few weeks have proven to be somewhat of a battlefield on this chart, songs that could have reached No.1 easily in another time are scraping into the top 30. Despite this, Amber Run have managed to make their first outing on the chart a pleasant one as 'Fickle Game' takes it's first week at the top spot. *Troye Sivan is not far behind, equalling his No.2 peak of 'YOUTH' with 'Heaven' *MAX makes his mark on the top 10, landing in at No.10 - up 8, with 'Lights Down Low (Orchestral Version)' *With the exception of one song last year, Rihanna has been finding it difficult to break the top 20 in the last few years, despite her numerous No.1's on the chart, but this week 'Love On The Brain' makes the first move in rectifying that as it shoots 7 to a new peak of No.15 *Childish Gambino makes the largest rise of the week, shifting 23 positions to a new peak of No.26 with 'Redbone' *Ariana Grande is not far behind, shooting 17 positions to a new peak of No.28 with her track 'Everyday' *Jamiroquai has the largest debut of the week in at No.38 with 'Automaton', Missy Elliott and Rag'n'Bone Man also have debuts respectively at No.42 and No.48 with 'I'm Better' and 'Skin'.
I'm very pleased to see Automaton catching on with so many others. It felt like something only I'd really care about haha Good to see Shape Of You, I Feel It Coming, Love On The Brain and Redbone move up.
Chart of Tuesday, 7th Feb. '17 - Sorry for a late chart! I got a new job this week, expect the next chart on either Monday Night or Tuesday though.
Chartifacts: *Amber Run carry on at the top spot for the 2nd week with 'Fickle Game', as well as debuting in at No.48 with 'Perfect' *MAX is continuing to rise up the charts with 'Lights Down Low', moving up 4 positions to a new peak of No.6 *Michael Malarkey is one of two The Vampire Diaries stars to make a large rise up the chart this week. 'Scars' moves up 9 to a new peak of No.12. Kat Graham is the other, moving up 10 with 'All Your Love' *Bruno Mars looks set for another hit as 'That's What I Like' rises 7 into the new peak of No.13 *Can you guess what movie I watched not once but twice this week? After having seen La La Land, 'A Lovely Night' returns to the chart to a new peak of No.17, 'Another Day of Sun' is at No.29, 'City Of Stars' rises 10 to No.30 and 'Audition (The Fools Who Dream)' premieres in at No.34 *Jamiroquai has the joint largest rise of the week, moving up 13 spots to a brand new peak of No.25 with 'Automaton'. *Lady Gaga and Rag'n'Bone Man are both up 12 this week with 'Million Reasons' up to No.35 and 'Skin' up to No.36 *Also debuting this week are Imagine Dragons and Cascada, with 'Believer' and 'Run' at No.44 and No.49 respectively

Chart of Tuesday 14th Feb. '17 - Since this is late by the exact same amount of days AND for the same reason as last week, this chart will now be updating on Fridays. I swear I don't try to be inconsistent!
Chartifacts: *This week the top 3 is all debuts, and more interestingly from 3 of the heaviest hitters on this charts history. With several top 3 and even No.1 eoy's between them. This week though, Katy Perry is the one who comes out on top as 'Chained To The Rhythm' blasts into the top spot. *Amy Lee, frontwoman of Evanescence, is next as her new single 'Love Exists' drops into the No.2 position *Lady Gaga went Gaga this week for the first time in a long time, and was instantly rewarded with another top 3 hit, 'John Wayne' marks the highest she's climbed since 'You And I' in 2011. *Not far behind is Ansel Elgort with his second hit on the chart, 'Thief' smashing right into the No.6 spot, ordinarily it would be the highest debut of the week, but he settles for fourth this week. *The clearing out of the top 10 continues as Bruno Mars moves into another hit with 'That's What I Like' going up six, the second largest rise of the week, into a new peak of No.7 *Gaga's superbowl performance didn't just help out her debut this week, but 'Million Reasons' rebounds close to it's highest peak in at No.15 this week, up 20 - the largest rise of the week. *Ariana Grande & John Legend finish off the debuts as their titular track from the movie 'Beauty and the Beast' lands in at No.20

Chartifacts: *Amy Lee has found massive success on this chart with band Evanescence, nabbing a total of 6 No.1's with the band and this week takes her first solo No.1 and total 7th - she's come close before, but 'Love Exists' has finally done it. *Bruno Mars and The Weeknd are both on upwards journeys this week within the top 5. 'That's What I Like' climbs four positions into the brand new peak of No.3, and 'I Feel It Coming' climbs the same amount to a new peak of No.4 after spending a total 10 weeks in the lower tier of the top 10. *Lana Del Rey this week takes the highest debut of the chart as she bursts right onto the scene in at No.10 with 'Love', a track that is likely to rise in the coming weeks. *Kygo & Selena Gomez aren't far behind with their new track 'It Ain't Me' coming in at No.12 *Twenty One Pilots have themselves another potential hit on their heads as 'Heavydirtysoul' premieres in at No.15 following the new music video *Jamiroquai is continuing his ascension up the chart, climbing 5 and is proving to be a dark horse contender for a higher position with 'Automaton' *Rag'n'Bone Man and his 'Skin' are the largest climbers of the week moving up 8 positions to a new peak of No.33 *Linkin Park and Ed Sheeran also take debuts this week, as 'Heavy' and 'How Would You Feel (Paean)' shine at No.42 and no.50 respectively
Worst Song: The Chainsmokers - Paris (6) Last edited:
Chartifacts: 'Love Exists' by Amy Lee is at the top of the chart for a 2nd week - as much as most the No.1's this year have managed to achieve. *Bruno Mars climbs a spot to get to No.2 with 'That's What I Like', potentially seeking another top hitter after 'Versace On The Floor' (TW-13) *The excitement on the chart this week is in the bottom half of the top 10, as Lana Del Rey as well as Kygo with Selena Gomez both half their positions from last week - moving up 5 and 6 respectively to get to new peaks at No.5 and No.6 with 'Love' and 'It Ain't Me' *Jamiroquai continues to pave his way through the chart into a hit as 'Automaton' shoots up 10 positions to a new peak of No.7, now a serious contender for a bigger hit. *Ariana Grande and John Legend are both moving up this week as well as excitement for the upcoming film 'Beauty And The Beast' approaches. The song is up seven spots to a new peak of No.9 *La La Land won some real and almost-real oscars this past week, and the optimistic opening number 'Another Day Of Sun' is up this week with the 3rd largest rise of the week - both rises above it going to the same film. 'Another Day Of Sun' is up 11 to a new peak of No.11 *Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone have two duets together this week that move up - first is 'A Lovely Night' moving up 8 to No.20. Secondly, the largest rise of the week this week is earnt by 'City Of Stars' - which fires up 14 positions to a new peak of No.22 *Emma Stone is the 2nd largest riser of the week as well, as 'Audition (The Fools Who Dream)' moves up 13 positions to a new peak of No.32 *No debuts to speak of this week - Who knows though, maybe next week all the La La Land tracks will be replaced by Moonlight songs!
Worst Song: The Chainsmokers feat. Coldplay - Something Just Like This^
Well, they did it. They replaced themselves. Partly because Coldplay should know better.
Pity Chained To The Rhythm is already off the top spot, it's probably in my top 5 from Katy already. Good to see debuts for Love and Heavydirtysoul. I Feel It Coming still up so high in your chart is pretty marvellous and I like that Automaton is now in the top 10. Also lmao Something Just Like This, it's pretty shit isn't it? Even Paris and Closer are better
Chartifacts: *Amy Lee achieves the feat of tied longest No.1 for the year this week, though that's not a lot at this point. Still, it marks the 3rd week for 'Love Exists' to sit atop the peak. *The two highest debuts this week are from two Glee alums - the first and highest, Lea Michele - finds herself at No.3 with 'Love Is Alive', the new single off her upcoming sophomore album. Next, is Darren Criss led band Computer Games with their debut single 'Every Single Night' in at No.6 *Beauty and the Beast is coming up quick, and 'Belle' slams into the No.10 position as the hype for that film grows. The title track also appears at both No.8 and No.31 this week from different artists respectively. *Lorde debuts twice this week - firstly with 'Liability' in at No.22, and then again at No.34 with 'Green Light' *Finally, Stargate lands their first single on the chart with the helps of P!nk and Sia with 'Waterfall'
Worst Song: The Chainsmokers feat. Coldplay - Something Just Like This
Chartifacts: *There's love in the top 2 as Amy Lee extends her lead to be the outright longest No.1 of the year so far, entering the 4th week with 'Love Exists' - not far behind though is Lea Michele at a new peak of No.2 with 'Love Is Alive' *Darren Criss led band Computer Games is up 3 positions this week to a new peak of No.3 with 'Every Single Night' - Criss can expect more entries next week as he guest stars on The Flash musical episode! *Amy Lee doesn't only have the top spot this week, but the top debut as well. Taken from the upcoming film Voice From The Stone is the track 'Speak To Me', which debuts in at No.6 *Lorde has the highest and second highest rise of the week - 'Liability' being the 2nd highest, moving up 12 positions to a new peak of No.10, and the highest goes to 'Green Light' which is up 23 spots this week. *Tumbling down the chart however, is Katy Perry, who was No.1 only 5 weeks ago and has just fallen 13 positions to No.18 with 'Chained To The Rhythm'
