Forum - Other Charts: Australia - Non ARIA - Unofficial Catalogue Singles Chart Pt. 3

Part 2: http://www.australian-charts.com/forum.asp?todo=viewthread&id=47579

If you are new to this thread, the deal is that every Sunday at midday, I record the current iTunes chart and note the highest selling songs which are at least 2 years old. There is also a bubbling under chart which features the highest selling songs which are at least 2 years old, but have also not yet cracked the main chart.

As we kick off the chart's 3rd year, we're mostly settling down from the chaos of last week. "Same Love" retains the top spot but with a far lower overall position leaving it very vulnerable next week. Of course that leads into the big news of the week, as on Tuesday we got the news that Tom Petty had passed away. He had previously appeared on this chart just once with "Free Fallin'", and unsurprisingly it leads the pack for him this week returning to the chart in a big way at #2. It's a generally modern set of high entries for him, with his next two entries being new enough to appear on the ARIA Chart, while his last top 10 entry goes back to the '70s for "Refugee". Overall he has 11 songs in the top 100 this week which includes tracks with the Traveling Wilburys and a collaboration with Stevie Nicks. Outside of that, we've got Macklemore climbing a bit higher with some of his entries since last week's chart pre-dated his performance, so "Downtown" gets a new peak again. There is a lot of buzz around Luke Bryan this week and so of all songs, "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)" climbs into the main chart at #29, while "Play It Again" gets a new peak as well. I now know that KONGOS are being used for a new show with the Top Gear lads and it keeps climbing this week. On the older side of things, we've got some vintage new peaks for "Spirit In The Sky", "Money For Nothing" and "Islands In The Stream" this week. Bananarama also enter the main chart for the first time with "Cruel Summer" surprisingly being the song to do it. The rest of the debuts are on the more modern side and harder to explain. Though I have been seeing ads for Pitch Perfect 3 lately so that might explain why Jessie J has finally come to terrify everyone with the thumbnail for "Flashlight". For reasons I can't work out, Delta Goodrem finally gets in with "Wings", a song which actually has held up quite well with sales but seemed to disappear right before it became eligible. Lastly, Post Malone fever manifests itself here with his first hit "White Iverson" debuting.

On the bubbling under chart, we have a new debut at the top with Pat Benatar getting her 2nd bubbler now, "We Belong" right at the top. Tom Petty has a couple more entries (I'm surprised "American Girl" didn't make the main chart), while the two most frequent appearers on this chart are both back in a little lower down. The Hollies get their first ever appearance (besides "Creep"), while Luke Bryan's most popular song from his 2015 album is for some reason "Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day". Incidentally "Drunk On You" just narrowly also missed appearing this week.

Oct 15th

First off some housekeeping, I've discovered another accidental omission, fortunately it's just a minor one, as Ruth B.'s "Lost Boy" was meant to appear at #61 on the 28/02/2017 chart (possibly some bubbling under charts as well, I haven't gotten to that part). I'm too busy to correct it right now, but by next week's chart I should have the full adjustment on display. The only real thing of note is that "Bang Bang" now has a week less on its tally.

As for this week's chart, there's a bit more inertia than you might expect. "Same Love" is still holding down #1 and in general Macklemore & The Killers are still populating the chart quite a bit. In a surprise, Tom Petty actually scores a new peak this week as "I Won't Back Down" climbs past "Free Fallin'" and replaces it in the #2 position. Aside from that, we've got some regulars in the top 10. In new peak news, we've got a big one, as Darius Rucker logs his 50th week in the chart, at a new height of #13 for "Wagon Wheel". KONGOS's momentum continues with "Come With Me Now" now in the top 20 at #17. Dragon see a new peak for "Rain" at #63, and "Raise Your Glass" improves a bit to #34. For the last two new peaks, it's by a single position that P!nk's "Try" and Sean Paul's "Temperature" improve. Those two new peaks are indicative of the biggest news stories of the week, with P!nk releasing a new album, and the R&B Fridays tour rolling around. Aside from those new peaks, the latter also sees a return for "Just Give Me A Reason", and the first pre-2010s P!nk songs to enter the fray, "Who Knew" and "Lady Marmalade". In the latter category, it's Craig David who gets the best dividends. "7 Days" and "Walking Away' both debuted on the very first chart right next to each other and haven't been seen since. They both re-enter next to each other and much higher this time in the top 15. He also adds a 3rd entry to his tally with "Fill Me In" a bit lower down. Ne-Yo also does well from this with "Closer" being promoted from bubbling under to the main chart. For the last debut of the week, it's been a long time coming but Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" finally gets in after spending a while in the bubbling under chart, in what has been a strong week for him.

The bubbling under chart extends the news of the main chart, with Ne-Yo debuting another hit at #1, while P!nk's "So What" creeps a little closer, and is joined lower down by "Sober". En Vogue also pay off from the tour with "Free Your Mind" entering for the first time, and Craig David also has "What's Your Flava?". There's some new wave flavour with Eurythmics & A Flock Of Seagulls charting for the first time, while we have a landmark debut for Meghan Trainor as her song from The Smurfs soundtrack becomes the newest song to ever impact this list. The specific notoriety is that it came out on the very same day I created this chart.

Oct 22nd

Lasting for longer than expected, "Same Love" is #1 for what looks like it'll be the last week. Disturbed's recent entrant returns to #2 still with a chance to take the #1 spot by default one of these weeks, while the news of Daryl Braithwaite's ARIA HoF induction is somewhat hampered by the fact that the version of "The Horses" that has always been selling has been deleted off iTunes, because unsurprisingly he has a new best of to promote. He still climbs a little but it's surprising not to see him at #1. We've recently had KONGOS climbing due to The Grand Tour, and possibly for the same reason we now have Hothouse Flowers debuting to the chart. They made the bubbling under chart after appearing on the show last year. Speaking of TV, there's been a Michael Hutchence documentary on recently, and had it been at a better time, we'd have seen a similar INXS onslaught to the early 2014 ARIA Charts. Nonetheless, their still only charter "Never Tear Us Apart" finally resolves its rather unimpressive peak as it climbs into the top 10 this week. And while there aren't any other INXS entries, we do get a track from Michael Hutchence's posthumous solo album (which I honestly had no idea existed before this week), with "Slide Away" in at #12. Darius Rucker is particularly unlucky and spends a second week at his peak of #13. Making the second biggest move of the week is Post Malone, who actually should have entered the ARIA Chart this week with "White Iverson" except the ARIA Chart is dumb so it didn't. Either way it takes a big climb this week being his only eligible hit at this stage. P!nk fever continues this week too, "Raise Your Glass" & "Try" both climb to new heights, and "So What" finally climbs from the bubbler ranx into the main chart. For the last new peak of this week, Duke Dumont's recent entrant "Ocean Drive" returns, much higher in its 2nd week on the chart at #43. Debuts this week are a diverse bunch. Starting off we have a local '80s radio staple from Mondo Rock with "Come Said The Boy", and then a pair of '70s R&B/soul singers with Tina Turner getting her CCR cover in before the CCR version could manage, while Gloria Gaynor's first entry is actually not "I Will Survive", but "Never Can Say Goodbye". And lastly to much fanfare, we have the song that shares its birthday with this chart, as Meghan Trainor's song from the Smurfs movie soundtrack "Better When I'm Dancin'" climbs in on its 2nd chance. Next week we may be seeing two new entries that are actually newer than this chart.

For the bubbling under, it shows more signs of the slight CCR fever of this week which has seen both Tina Turner's cover and a Bliss N Eso cover of their work charting highly on iTunes. For the real deal, they have "Bad Moon Rising" climbing to #1 for the first time. Another long runner, Eminem's "Superman" also gets a new peak, while the INXS splash appears largely here, with "Need You Tonight" & "New Sensation" getting their first entries, while "Don't Change" returns. Demi Lovato's album "Confident" was released just 2 years ago, and it seems there might have been some celebration for the occasion as two of the album's singles, "Confident" and "Stone Cold" get in, the latter only having its first chance now. Alice Cooper chart for the first time with "Poison", while Christina Milian gives us some early 2000s flair with "When You Look At Me". Of all P!nk songs, somehow "Funhouse" has also made its way up here, while perhaps Ferris Bueller was on TV recently as The Beatles' version of "Twist and Shout" debuts.

Glad to see Same Love still sitting at #1
Oct 29th

It's been a while, but we've got a new #1 this week! Led Zeppelin briefly entered the top 10 some time ago with "Immigrant Song", but now thanks to its inclusion in the latest Thor movie, it's a big re-entry all the way up at #1, firmly locked into the iTunes top 40. Otherwise the big news of the week is a new George Michael documentary that aired. The result is a splash of entries that are in many cases higher than they were when he died (partly because that happened at the high selling Christmas period). The highest this time around is "Freedom '90" which scores a new peak of #2. "Father Figure" also scores a new peak while "A Different Corner" even earns a debut. It was not even in the iTunes top 1000 when he passed. His Mary J. Blige duet "As" also gets in. Though we're a day further away from Halloween than last year, the festive favourites are all back, "Thriller", "Monster Mash", "Time Warp" and "Ghostbusters". In what is a particularly gloomy week, we see the first ever entries for rock & roll pioneer Fats Domino, whose passing leads to entries for "Blueberry Hill" and "Ain't That A Shame". Last week's chart came just prior to some Cold Chisel related celebrations, but despite the bad timing, it's still a good week for the Chisel, with Jimmy Barnes getting a new top 20 peak for "Working Class Man". In fitting territory, Meghan Trainor climbs further to #69 with "Better When I'm Dancin'". And on the topic of newer songs, we've got two major debuts this week, with the first songs to chart that are younger than the chart itself. It was a big week on the ARIA Chart in 2015 when Adele's "Hello" entered at #1 and Justin Bieber's "Sorry" at #2, and now naturally both songs debut as soon as possible, with Adele taking the lead yet again. Lastly, Pat Benatar gets her first ever entry, with neither of her Bubbling Under entries, but instead "All Fired Up".

On that Bubbling Under chart, we have some more George Michael entering, including his one missing ARIA #1 "Jesus To A Child". At the top of the chart oddly enough is Kip Moore, who seems particularly popular compared to his contemporaries here, with his 2015 track "Wild Ones" entering for the first time. There's a rare instance when people realise Daryl Braithwaite has more than one song, and he even has two songs in this week, with "One Summer" a new peaker and "As The Days Go By" debuting. Happening earlier in the week, the reaction to legendary Australian musician George Young is somewhat muted here. We do see a debut for the live version of The Angels' "Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again" (which he co-produced), and of course The Easybeats' "Friday On My Mind". Possibly thanks to the current #1 single, Nickelback get yet another look in with another song, "Rockstar", while 360's new album boosts a second Gossling collaboration into the chart, "Boys Like You".

Can't believe that Hello and Sorry already are 2 years old!
Nov 5th

It was a slightly closer affair, though only in positions. If we go by straight sales, Led Zeppelin had a huge lead, considering their close 2nd version was still higher than this week's #2. And for that #2, it's the signpost that this is the week of Sam Smith. With his 2nd album released, we've got a big wave of older tracks impacting to the fullest. "Stay With Me" naturally leads the pack at #2, with "I'm Not The Only One" and "Lay Me Down" hitting the top 10 for the first time each at #3 & #5 respectively. Surprisingly his next highest track is his ARIA #51 hit "Money On My Mind", one for those door closers among us. Lastly he has a debut for his Oscar winning Bond song "Writing's On The Wall", which only became eligible last month. Otherwise, the entire top 10 consists of songs that were there last week, and we even have a run of 8 consecutive #1 peakers from #7 to #14. We've got a new peaking re-entry from Andra Day's reality TV favourite "Rise Up" at #15. The rest of the new peaks are rather low on the chart, but some are from persistent tracks. The Proclaimers & Rupert Holmes both improve a bit with their re-entries, as does Maroon 5 with "Moves Like Jagger" charting for only the 2nd time, now thanks to their new album out which also shows "She Will Be Loved" back to the chart. There's one more new peaker, this time not a re-entry, as DNCE's persistent "Cake By The Ocean" climbs into the top 50 for the first time. In general it's a good time for artists releasing new albums, as Guy Sebastian also finds a re-entry for "Battle Scars". And on that tangent, our first chart of Aus Music Month does well for Australian artists. Aside from the many re-entries, we have some first time charters, with Natalie Imbruglia getting in for the first time with "Torn", and Jet also doing the same with "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?". This also means that just a month after the last one, we have our 15th Hottest 100 #1 to poll, bringing us down to 8 missing eligibles with Flume still 2 months away from his first chance. It's an unfortunate week for last week's fresh debuts, Adele taking a tumble, and Justin Bieber taking the unlucky #101 slot with "Sorry". Both artists have more to be eligible soon though. And of course, it's the beginning of Novemeber, which means we've got the Mariah Carey early birds. "All I Want For Christmas" re-enters at #18, a curious improvement on its #38 re-entry on the 06/11/2016 chart.

To top off the Bubbling Under chart is some more Maroon 5, with "Payphone" closely missing out on a main chart debut. Gerry Rafferty also appears for the first time at #2 with "Baker Street". There's actually a 100+ iTunes position gap between #3 & #4, but it gives us some new peaks for those not quite classic, not quite modern rock hits from The Screaming Jets & Motley Crue. I can only assume the latter is thanks to WWE 2K ads because I've been getting them for weeks. Though not a hit here, Kid Rock gets in with his Sheryl Crow duet "Picture", and thanks to the new remake cast announcement, we've got "Hakuna Matata" in the chart. It's credited as being from The Lion King 1.5 on iTunes but to my knowledge both versions (on iTunes) are the same. Please correct me if I'm mistaken. Surprisingly, with how much Queen appears on this chart, "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" sneaks in at the very bottom for its first ever appearance. But the most important thing this week (ever perhaps) is that Khia has debuted with "My Neck, My Back".

As the clock continues to run out on anything that isn't "All I Want For Christmas Is You" sitting at #1, we've got Led Zeppelin comfortably retaining it for a 3rd week. Disturbed return to #2 yet again, while Taylor Swift's new album release has "Shake It Off" finally getting a new peak of #3. Interestingly, nothing else from her back catalogue appears this week. Thanks to a Target ad, a relatively modern Bob Dylan track actually has 3 versions appearing high, with "Must Be Santa" being his second ever entry and at #7. With the release of their new album/best of/synthesis thingy, Evanescence see "My Immortal" return to the top 10 and "Bring Me To Life" re-enter lower. Speaking of Mariah, she's making record pace as she's already hit the top 10 this week. Meanwhile, Taylor Swift was not the only one to score a new peak by 1 spot. I believe Darius Rucker has been on tour and "Wagon Wheel" continues its strong form, improving to #12 now. With the release of a new single, Sheppard's "Geronimo" is back in, and also one spot higher than ever before, as some might say, looks like Crap remembered to buy. Ball Park Music did Like A Version this week, with a cover of Powderfinger's "My Happiness", and that returns in a big way to #18. Also returning is Neil Diamond who finally cracks the top 50 with "Sweet Caroline". It's one of the two times of the year where "The Last Post" enters the chart, and the second time for this particular recording. As for the debuts, the next highest is from musician Aron Wright, whose "Build It Better" is a favourite for TV shows, and most recently it appeared on The Good Doctor. Earlier in the week, the 2nd ever lead vocalist for Faith No More, Chuck Mosley passed away. Even though he was only with them up to 1987, the two songs that have picked up the most steam on iTunes had nothing to do with him. There's their cover of "Easy" at #40, and of course "Epic" at #99. Midnight Oil pick up their 5th ever entry with the song whose title defies what this thread stands for, "Short Memory". For Green Day, they're up to 4 entries now with "Holiday" finding a way in. We had two 2015 tracks nearly debut this week if they hadn't been released 1 day later. Good chance they'll appear next week. However, for a surprise we had a big surge for Dua Lipa's "Be The One", which became eligible last week but didn't come close to the chart.

On this week's bubbling under, we have quite a curious leader, with Kanye West's album track "Hey Mama" from 2005. It comes as Friday this week marked the 10th anniversary of Kanye's mother's passing (and awkwardly Taylor Swift released an album on the same day), which made that Friday Hey Mama day in the Kanye fan community. It got as high as the top 100 on iTunes 2 days ago. Also debuting highly are a bunch of funny named artists with big hits of yesteryear, with Sniff 'n' the Tears & Martha & The Muffins getting their first appearances. To call back to Darius Rucker, there's an extended effect with some Hootie & The Blowfish tracks entering. He's not the only one touring, as Drake is currently in the country, and of all the songs of his that could appear, we get "Energy" from his 2015 mixtape "If You're Reading This It's Too Late". Then we've got some classics from The Church & Pink Floyd debuting, and also Afroman, not with "Because I Got High", but with the nowadays much more popular "Crazy Rap".

In what may be the last time this year we have a genuine battle for the top spot, we had quite a battle. The top three songs this week were all adjacent, and it all became about timing, which is why I made sure to load the chart exactly on time. As you know, last night we had the news of Malcolm Young's passing. AC/DC are of course the most popular band on this chart pretty much every week, so they're not high on new entries, rather it's about those regular tracks soaring to new heights. They're not quite #1 though, although if you include a second version, they probably should be. Instead, we're seeing a good week for Disturbed, whose cover of "The Sound Of Silence" is particularly high on US iTunes, and doing well here to score a #1 hit. Because of that, AC/DC have to take the silver, with "Thunderstruck" hitting a new peak of #2. They also add to their top 10 tally as "It's A Long Way To The Top" and "Highway To Hell" reaching it for the first time. With the decade long SSM polling finally over, Macklemore makes one last return to the top 10 with "Same Love". AC/DC have "You Shook Me All Night Long" and "Back In Black" unable to reach new peaks, but a little lower they do have "Hells Bells", "Jailbreak" and "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" doing so. For debuts, they have ""Who Made Who" and "Let There Be Rock" sneak in. Paul Kelly is about to kick off a tour, and he has a big week with his regular entries, including "Before Too Long" advancing beyond the bubbling under chart for the first time. On the more modern side of things, it's a good week for Justin Bieber with a new peak for "Sorry", and now "Love Yourself" completing his set of 2015 #1 hits. A day before "25"'s 2 year anniversary, Adele has "Hello" hitting a new peak, and perhaps will be joined by more entries next week. Lastly we've got a new peak for Luke Bryan's "Play It Again".

That last point leads in well to the bubbling under chart, as the top end is very country influenced. Rascal Flatts come very close to the main chart with "Life Is A Highway" being theoretically #102 this week, while despite "Wagon Wheel" dipping a bit, Hootie & The Blowfish climb further with "Hold My Hand", and have "Let Her Cry" replaced by "Only Wanna Be With You". We go back to Luke Bryan with "Huntin', Fishin' & Lovin' Every Day" making a big move up to #3, and then we have a curious set of debuts. Check another ARIA #1 off your bingo sheet with Lighthouse Family's "High" getting in, presumably through Jessica Mauboy's cover on The Secret Daughter, while thanks to a viral video, First Aid Kit's excellent "My Silver Lining" makes an appearance. There's a very peculiar debut for DJ Kool's ARIA #50 hit from 1996 "Let Me Clear My Throat", while thanks to an ad, Nathaniel's "Live Louder" returns to existence for the first time in 2 years. I like to believe that Doki Doki Literature Club fans are helping "Mambo No. 5", while we finish off with another newly eligible track, Alessia Cara's "Scars To Your Beautiful".

One week earlier than last year, people are all aboard the Mariah Carey train for possibly the rest of 2017. This is her 3rd year in a row of hitting #1 and it gives her 8 weeks at #1, meaning there's a good chance she'll take the crown for most weeks at #1. Perhaps the one spanner to her could be Daryl Braithwaite, who will no doubt perform "The Horses" at this week's ARIA Awards, a song that is already riding high despite having 3 different versions selling well. For once that's not the only Daryl news, as he gets debuts for "As The Days Go By" and "One Summer". Christmas fever starts to pick up in other areas, notably we have Tim Minchin's "White Wine In The Sun" which usually waits until the very last week to enter, but for whatever reason has jolted to a new peak in the top 10. AC/DC fever peaked between this chart and last week's, so they're mostly just holding on this week, however "Back In Black" manages a slight new peak of #15. There's very little else to report for new peaks. ABBA's "Dancing Queen" re-enters at a new height, and Justin Bieber improves 1 place with last week's debut of "Love Yourself". It's also a quiet week of debuts which will probably continue to be the case as most of the entries are just the usual Christmas affairs. This week did see the passing of David Cassidy, who music fans will know best from The Partridge Family, and obscure late 2000s murder mystery fans will know best as Trish's actress's father. They had a big #1 hit with "I Think I Love You", but what gets here is a solo version from David which I don't know the origin of, as Wikipedia only acknowledges his modern re-working from the early 2000s, whereas this is a slightly different version of the Partridge Family recording seemingly from the same era. For newer stuff which I can comprehend, we've got Alessia Cara's first ever main chart appearance, as "Scars To Your Beautiful" upgrades itself to a debut on its 2nd eligible week. Lastly, everyone flips their Lion King soundtrack preference on its head, and we get the cast version of "Circle Of Life" debuting. Last week we had Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" at its lowest recorded position to date, this week it's John Legend's turn with "All Of Me" out of the top 80 for the first time ever.

On the bubbling under chart, it's a good week for #1 hit bingo. We're led by the actual Partridge Family version of "I Think I Love You", but we also see big hits from Soft Cell, Michael Jackson and The Beach Boys make their debut. Thirsty Merc's first ever appearance in this comes in the almost timely form of "In The Summertime", while a busy week for Cat Stevens sees "Moonshadow" debut and a new peak for "Peace Train". If you're in interest of the impossible mission of completing the set of UK #1s, we've got two more by way of John Newman & Ricky Martin this week. Adele's "25" turned 2 this week, and even though "Water Under The Bridge" is usually the best after "Hello", it misses the chart and instead "Send My Love" and "When We Were Young" enter.

Dec 3rd

It's a pretty big week in loggy land. I'll get to why that is in a moment, but for now, Mariah Carey has managed to retain the top spot after a midweek challenge from Dazza. Either way he's already hit #1 and he's making a big stride compared to his all time points competition so I'm sure he doesn't mind. Next up we have a big debut at #3 for Bill Withers courtesy of a McDonalds ad with "Lovely Day", sadly Twista's "Sunshine" is nowhere to be seen. Wham! are challenging for a new peak as they have the 2nd highest Christmas song this week, just needing to retain it in the coming weeks. Next up is the start of one of the biggest pieces of news this week, or at least it would be if I could find out the precise catalyst. I admittedly got a bit of a scare when I saw Elton's catalogue populating the iTunes chart big time, but he's alive and well. I'm guessing there was a TV special of sorts because even though his songs have declined since that midweek boost, he's still all over this week's chart. His highest entry is actually a song that's never charted before, "Your Song" at #5. It's followed by his staples, of which "I'm Still Standing" scores a new peak. Then there's a bunch of new entries. Firstly the original version of "Candle Of The Wind", which outpeaks the '97 version that debuted earlier this year, and then there's "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues", "Sacrifice", "Daniel", and lastly his other Australian #1 hit "Don't Go Breaking My Heart". With most of the upward action this week centered around Christmas songs not quite at their peak, there's not much to note of new peaks this week, just Daryl with a slight boost for "One Summer", and Dragon re-entering at a new peak with "Rain". Thanks to a quick Australian tour, Sia has a particularly good week. Aside from "Chandelier" nearly jumping back into the top 10, she has a slightly delayed debut for 2015 single "Alive" (she may have another new single debuting soon too), and a debut for her delightful 2004 track "Breathe Me". Her support acts MØ & Amy Shark also have slight boosts, but not in any way you see on this chart. The other support Charli XCX does manage this though, with "Boom Clap" sneaking a debut. A random Christmas compilation track debuts, while we get a belated debut for The Easybeats' "Friday On My Mind", presumably due to a tribute to George Young. Last to debut is Martha & The Muffins' '80s classic "Echo Beach" which had been popping up on the bubbling under chart recently. Perhaps the biggest news this week though is that the influx of Christmas stuff has changed the focus, and our long runners are really feeling the crunch. "Lose Yourself" is down to #58, but for the first time ever, "All Of Me" and "Roar" are BOTH out of the chart. This means that the only songs to chart every week are "Lose Yourself", "The Horses", "Happy", and possibly "Bohemian Rhapsody" if you think I botched the first chart which is likely. Although "Bohemian Rhapsody" has been having trouble hanging on lately so maybe that won't matter soon.

The bubbling under chart gives us even more Elton John with 6 tracks debuting this week. This includes "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" at #1, and also the original 1970s version of his famous George Michael duet "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me". Jack Johnson has been touring here but still fails to get "Better Together" into the main chart. Hi-5 are also having their 3rd attempt to make the main chart, though they also have an additional Christmas track in now. Also because he wisely chose to release on a Saturday instead of a Friday, we've got Alan Walker making his debut to the chart with "Faded", which was released on this very day 2 years ago.

Dec 10th

Mariah Carey gets her 10th week at #1, likely we've got 2 more weeks of this before everything descends into chaos. We're also into that uncertain part of Christmas climbs where not everything is climbing and not everything is falling. Disturbed block Wham! from getting a new peak, but Brenda Lee manages to with "Rocking Around The Christmas Tree". After a dodgy week, Eminem's back where he's expected, and there's little else to note about the top 10. With thanks to the Riverdale cast version, Michael Andrews' version of "Mad World" soars back into the chart with a new peak of #11. Also getting assorted new peaks is "Aussie Jingle Bells" & "Friday On My Mind". Most of the other big movers of the week can be tied into the main story, which is Paul McCartney's brief visit to Australia. Possibly the bigger influencer here is that he did a great Take 5 interview on triple j, and the biggest entries here are songs that were played then, "FourFiveSeconds" at a new peak and "Blackbird" re-entering at its old peak of #37. After that is more expected stuff, like a re-entry for "Let It Be" and a debut for "Hey Jude". Mariah Carey adds to her collection with "Christmas" getting its debut this week, and lastly we have a recent hit in the form of Alan Walker's "Faded", which debuted on the bubbling under chart last week and now reaches the main chart.

There's much more McCartney in the Bubbling Under chart, and he leads the pack with two Wings tracks, "Mull Of Kintyre" and "Band On The Run". He's got a solo track in "Maybe I'm Amazed", and then we dive back into The Beatles with "Come Together", "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" and "Yesterday" debuting. Cat Stevens has another good week and "Moonshadow" gets a new peak in the process, while the Village People's long running hit "YMCA" reaches the top 5 for the first time. There's a first ever appearance for one of the best Christmas hits that Australia often overlooks, Wizzard's "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday", while another boost for the "Burlesque" soundtrack is largely unseen because some tracks have already debuted, but Christina Aguilera's "Show Me How You Burlesque" is a new one here. Lastly shout out to Chet Faker's former band Inner Circle making their first appearance.

Dec 17th

In our second to last week of Christmas chaos, Mariah Carey retains the top spot without a remote issue, though it would be different in the UK where "Last Christmas" is getting campaigned hard. Incidentally, it does manage to score a new peak now of #2, which it will have little opportunity to ever improve, but then weirder things have happened. That's the only level of excitement in the top 10 which is the same 10 songs as last week and they haven't moved much either. Despite Christmas being a week away still, we've got a selection of new peaks for "Aussie Jingle Bells", "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" and Michael Buble's version of "Christmas". The sole secular new peak of the week is Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" returning at #51. There's not much else to note on debuts either, as there are only 3 this week, from very different musical worlds. Firstly it's Sia with her latest eligible single "Cheap Thrills" which just today turned 2, meanwhile scoring their first ever entry is The Beach Boys, with their later #1 hit "Kokomo". No doubt thanks to Perfect: Tokyo Drift, it's everyone's favourite banger from Sarah Brightman & Andrea Bocelli, "Time To Say Goodbye".

There's a bit more going on in the Bubbling Under chart, as we score another pure #101 peaker with Dire Straits' long running "Sultans Of Swing" landing 1 spot behind the #100. Dean Martin gets his first Christmas canonisation with his version of "Let It Snow!...", as does Selena Gomez with a version of "Winter Wonderland" so vintage that it's still with The Scene. Oddly "Live and Let Die" takes a 2nd week to make its appearance even though most Paul McCartney stuff fell this week, and speaking of tourists, while they're in the country, Muse have their first ever appearance on this chart with "Uprising". Surprisingly enough, "Proud Mary" and "Mamma Mia" are only charting for the first time too, while if you want more Bocelli, you're in luck.

Dec 24th

It's now for peak Christmas as it's only on December 25th that they start to descend. We'll likely have a lot of dropouts next week as there are roughly 50 Christmas-related songs in the chart this week. Shock alert: Mariah Carey has #1 pinned down yet again with Wham! & John Lennon right behind as is the norm. We have some big movers lower though, with Paul Kelly's "How To Make Gravy" having a big jump on Gravy Day, but still holding on to land at #4. Brenda Lee is also new into the top 5, while Mariah Carey gets another top 10 with "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town". Dazza's Horses is the sole secular entry in the top 10 this week. On the lower tier, we've got some more new peaks in Christmas land, Bruce Springsteen up to #12, Band Aid 30 to #13, Bucko & Champs to #14, Michael Buble to #16, Bobby Helms to #19 & Jose Feliciano to #20. Really there's just too much to mention. Since we're at peak Christmas, we've got plenty of debuts in that vein getting their first time in the sun, again too many to mention. As a sole non-Christmassy debut (or maybe I'm wrong and people see it as one for some reason), we've got Procol Harum's massive '60s smash hit "A Whiter Shade Of Pale". I'm pretty exhausted so I'll just leave it at that, merry Christmas.

Dec 31st

We now reach one of the most chaotic weeks as there's the fallout post-Christmas. That is to say a literal 'fall out' because every single Christmas related song (except for "How To Make Gravy") has dropped out of the chart, which means that about half of this chart is re-entries. At the top of the podium stands Daryl, seemingly by default. Oddly enough his challenger is DNCE, whose "Cake By The Ocean" somehow finds its way all the way up at #2, I assume it's on a trailer or something. As this part of the year is characterised by people buying stuff that was being bought for all of the rest of the year, there's not much noteworthy action this week aside from the flood of entries, since most of them have been higher before. There are a decent few new peaks though. Leading a sort of Australiana pack, there's Icehouse's "Great Southern Land" now up to #14, while Alan Walker's "Faded" finally has a Christmas free week to get all the way up to #16. Post Malone's "White Iverson" also hits a new peak, as do similarly recent entries from Alessia Cara & Justin Bieber. All else there is to mention are two new arrivals, seemingly random vintage ones at that. First up is The Go-Betweens, who recently bubbled under with "Streets Of Your Town", but instead hit the main chart with "Cattle and Cane". And lastly it's Big Mountain's rendition of "Baby, I Love Your Way".

Bubbling under is a bit more interesting this week, partly because the buying habits of the week have caused it to dip very low down the chart, only the top 10 are in the iTunes top 600. Leading the pack is a new #1, with CCR's "Have You Ever Seen The Rain" which previously reached #2. Then we have a new entry from a recently eligible single, with Desiigner's just over 2 year old US #1 single "Panda". Shakira & Bob Marley continue to add to their huge tally of weeks, while Roy Orbison gets his first ever lead artist appearance with "Oh, Pretty Woman". There's more Australiana with The Triffids at #9 and then all matter of unrelated re-entries.

Cake By The Ocean is featured in Pitch Perfect 3.
(For the record I'll try to get this posted tomorrow, I've gotten myself caught up in a big, horrible, pointless amendment that's taking a very long time. The chart is essentially made though )
Jan 7th

Here we are at last. Ever since yesterday I've subjected myself to a hellish spreadsheet nightmare to make amendments to the older charts, as much as I probably preferred them as they were before. In the past week or so it became clear to me that there are two more songs that I have missed in my assessment as they were both older than I thought. The first is Luke Combs' hit "Hurricane" which became eligible back in June last year. I have agonisingly fixed up every single chart on my spreadsheet for it which means that a lot of WI/HP for songs will have changed as of this chart, it's far too much to address. As for "Hurricane" if it never returns to the chart, it so far has spent 24 weeks in the chart with a peak of #12. To a lesser extent, even though it's a bigger hit, I also had to address Charlie Puth's "One Call Away", which I was under the impression wasn't released until 2016 but I was quite wrong. It was fortunately less of a bother as it only has charted for 9 weeks, with a peak that it just hit this week of #31. While I won't mention every #99 & #100 that got bumped off the chart, I will note that Glen Campbell's "Gentle On My Mind" and A$AP Rocky's "Everyday" have both been pushed off when they otherwise debuted, so they're back in bubbling under land. Because of A$AP Rocky being bumped down, this also means that Sam Smith's "Like I Can" has been bumped off THAT chart and thus has no chart presence to date.

Now to address this week's chart, we may as well have the same song in both top two spots, as K Mart "Uptown Funk" also known as "Cake By The Ocean" has become a somewhat surprising new #1 thanks to some handy promotion spots, and "Uptown Funk" is back up to #2 possibly because it's reminding everyone of it. The top 10 is largely filled by regulars, though we do have recent tourist Post Malone hitting the top 10 for the first time with "White Iverson". Some recent hits also score new peaks, Alan Walker up to #13 with "Faded", Adele to #30 with "Hello", and Sia's "Cheap Thrills" getting one of the many Pitch Perfect boosts with "Cheap Thrills" re-entering at #26. Pitch Perfect also sees a big re-entry for George Michael's "Freedom '90", and some reasonably modern #1 hits, "Toxic", "Pumped Up Kicks" and "Right Round" all re-enter on new peaks. We were close to having no debuts this week, as there are only two. The first of which has appeared bubbling under a few times, with Robin Schulz's "Sugar" finally debuting at #85, while from way outside the bracket, we've got The Kooks' first ever appearance on this chart with "Naïve" at #100.

Because I discovered this "One Call Away" nonsense, CCR miss their chance to get a debut for "Have You Ever Seen The Rain" as it holds #1 on the Bubbling Under chart, but now it's directly below #100 by 1 place. People are remembering the first Pitch Perfect movie as Simple Minds get just a little bit closer to the main chart, and the super long titled medley that features it also appears. Christina Perri adds a 4th song to her tally here with "Human", while Adele finally gets an entry for the 4th big single from "25", "Water Under The Bridge". It's been a little over 2 years since Coldplay released their last album, and now it finds an impact here with "Hymn For The Weekend", while lower down, The Cat Empire & Swedish House Mafia appear for the first time ever. It is also interesting to note that there are 8 songs that retain in the Bubbling Under chart from last week, which is a new record for chart stability.

Nice #1
Jan 14th

I'll have to take a blame for being so focused on the Hurricane nightmare last week that I missed a debut last week. Fortunately I spotted it today so it's a much easier fix, but we should have had a #8 debut for Daya's "Sit Still, Look Pretty" via Pitch Perfect. This pushes a lot of songs down and they lose some of their peaks, but many of them improve this week anyway. It is unfortunate however for The Kooks & Swedish House Mafia, who lose their main chart & bubbling chart debuts.

The top 3 is completely the same as last week. Some current tourists continue to improve, with Oasis's very long running "Wonderwall" getting a new #5 peak, and Post Malone's "White Iverson" now up to #7. Tracy Chapman is also back in the top 10 in what seems to be a bumper week for her, and a good chance to remind you that Jonas Blue's terrible cover is indeed eligible but nowhere to be seen. Elle King gets a proper Pitch Perfect rebound with "Ex's & Oh's" back at #11, while Bryan Adams also rides high as he has a new compilation out recently. In the world of new peaks, Sia's "Cheap Thrills" continues to soar, now at #14, while Sheppard have a big jump for "Geronimo" to #23. I'm guessing Ice Age has aired recently because Rusted Root are back at a new peak. Though I've been hearing a different Dragon song on ads recently, they seem to be instead riding high with the usual "Rain" now at a new peak, and also "April Sun In Cuba" back. Don Henley's back for a 2nd week with a new high for "The Boys Of Summer" too. In what was a big week for a lot of regulars re-entering, there aren't many debuts. For the two big ones, we first have Jasmine Rae, whose "When I Found You" debuts courtesy of yet another Sheeran songwriting lawsuit, this time not one of his own songs but one he wrote for Tim McGraw & Faith Hill. Then there's a debut for a long time ago bubbler, The Moody Blues' "Nights In White Satin". The rest of the debuts are tucked down super low. The first two are 2015 songs that were just on last week's bubblers list, with Adele getting another "25" entry via "Water Under The Bridge", and Demi Lovato getting her first ever chart appearance with "Confident". And lastly, there's Marcy Playground's "Sex and Candy" because I don't know.

Over in bubbling under land we've got some more artists making their first time appearances. Notably The Carpenters at #2 with "Top Of The World", while some more oldies satisfaction comes from The Temptations' "My Girl". The other two are much more modern, as we enter Hottest 100 season, we've got two former top 10 finishers, Little Red's "Rock It" and Scissor Sisters' "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'". Elsewhere to note, we've got Bryan Adams returning to the fold with two tracks both at their peak, Pras breaks a long drought for "Ghetto Supastar" which debuted here back in late 2016, and now Desiigner's "Panda" hits the top, brrrrarrrrr!

Jan 21st

This chart is a melting pot of all activities that draw people to purchase particular songs at the particular timeframe that is captured. This can lead to some curiosities where the right timing can propel a song higher than it would otherwise be, if there were perhaps two different unrelated reasons for people to buy it. So while the big story of this week is the sad and untimely passing of The Cranberries' Dolores O'Riordan, it is a sheer coincidence that "Zombie" was actually already charting here for the past 2 weeks for an unrelated matter which I will surely not be able to work out any more. Despite this, it did not race to the top at the start of the week, instead "Linger" did so. But as "Linger" didn't have a secondary pushing factor, it has since slipped back to #2, meaning that "Zombie" finally manages to improve its long standing #2 peak to hit #1. The Cranberries have the whole top 3 too as "Dreams" also lands right behind them, while "Ode To My Family" is their only other top 100 entry at #6. The top half of the chart is pretty uneventful elsewhere. If not for The Cranberries' entries, Darius Rucker might have snuck a new peak for "Wagon Wheel", though Kenny Rogers does manage to do so with his even longer running "The Gambler" up to a new high of #17. There are only 2 new peaks in the rest of the chart, with GANGgajang finally cracking the top 50 with "Sounds Of Then", while Spiderbait just barely improve their low, low peak for "Black Betty", still in the '90s. The debut front is similarly uneventful with only 3 more to mention, all big hits in their day. There's Alannah Myles' "Black Velvet", Pearl Jam's "Last Kiss", and thanks to their new album release, Fall Out Boy's "Thnks Fr Th Mmrs".

Of more interest this week is the Bubbling Under chart. I now know that Little Red's "Rock It" is on a commercial, and it rides up to the top of the chart this week. The Cranberries have another 2 to their tally with "When You're Gone" and "Salvation". There are also some relatively fresh songs with Snakehips & Jonas Blue getting their first appearances, while the first 2016 released song to impact this chart is of course Flume's newly eligible "Never Be Like You". Some more artists are appearing for the first time including Colbie Caillat, Weezer, Blessid Union Of Souls, and Russian meme Vitas. More surprising to me though is that Kylie appears for the first time ever, and Bon Jovi's "You Give Love A Bad Name" is just now debuting right at the bottom.

Jan 28th

While it's been two days since Australia Day, that's still close enough to make a considerable impact on this week's chart. Case in point we've got a new #1 track. It comes from Men At Work who after originally peaking at #9 with "Down Under", see a massive boost to #1. They also finally get a second entry with "Who Can It Be Now?" debuting lower down. Half of the top 10 this week is Australian, and through that there are also new peaks for Icehouse & GANGgajang, who enter the top 10 for the first time ever. The Cranberries also hold up well with 3 of their tracks retaining top 6 positions, while Foo Fighters' current tour gives them a boost akin to their album drop week, "Best Of You" fairing best by returning to the top 10. They do however score new peaks for "My Hero" and "Everlong", and additionally a debut for "Monkey Wrench". More Australians also score new peaks, Sheppard taking "Geronimo" to #12 and Australian Crawl at #31 with "The Boys Light Up". We then have the holy trinity of Australia Day classics which of course is "True Blue", "I Still Call Australia Home"...and "Take Me" oddly beating more recent RÜFÜS tracks to reaching the main chart. The rest of the debuts are tucked right at the bottom of the chart. The Church give some more Australian representation with "The Unguarded Moment", while two previous bubblers get through in Weezer's "Island In The Sun" and The Screaming Jets' "Better", the first time in the main chart for both bands.

The bubbling under chart is represented by plenty of generations of Australian music fans. Leading the charge is Flume's "Never Be Like You", which is unlucky to not make the cut considering it was the last song triple j played before starting yesterday's Hottest 100. We've then got two versions of Yothu Yindi's "Treaty", with both the original album version and the popular remix version getting in. Some people have been watching Grease evidently with two tracks from there in this week, while there's an onslaught of Australian debuts from Cold Chisel, Moving Pictures, Sheppard, Art vs. Science, Pnau & INXS. Part of me really wants to believe that Gang Of Youths' track of the same name influenced Sheppard's appearance.

Feb 4th

It's no longer January so no one is trying to say they're super into Australian music any more. I jest but there's quite an exodus this week, we nearly don't even have any AC/DC on the chart this week. Returning to #1 seemingly by default is "Uptown Funk", which hasn't been at #1 since January last year. The week is generally categorised by a small handful of artists who have seen big influxes. First of which is Shania Twain who sees new peaks across the board, notably "Man! I Feel Like A Woman!" at #2 and "That Don't Impress Me Much" at #10. Long ARIA Chart runner "From This Moment On" also finally debuts. Next up is Imagine Dragons who announced their Australian tour this past week, and now have "Radioactive" all the way up at #4. "On Top Of The World" also hits a new high of #21. TLC have a big week too but only "Unpretty" scores a new peak. Lastly, Pink Floyd get some upswell with "Wish You Were Here" at a new peak and "Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. 2" debuting. Other assorted new peaks to mention are Toto's "Africa" now up to #9, and slightly lower returns for Moby's "Flower" and The Verve's "Bitter Sweet Symphony" on the lower end of the chart. In what was not a busy week for new entries, there's only one more to mention, with the first ever appearance for Black Sabbath, with the classic "Paranoid" just sneaking in.

On the bubbling under chart, it's a good week for a variety of cheesy pop. Believe it or not, this is the first time ever in the chart for Rick Astley & Michael Bolton, while Boyz II Men also get their first entry, and their second, and their third, all closely together. A photo of the Spice Girls together has been doing the rounds on social media, and they now get their 2nd bubbler with "Stop". Simple Plan also have a pending Australian tour and chart for the first time with "Welcome To My Life", while a week after getting their first main chart entry, RÜFÜS get another bubbler in the form of their 10 minute monster "Innerbloom". I should also probably mention that Pink Floyd are at the top of the chart with "Comfortably Numb".

I think it's worth noting that network TEN show The Loop which airs on their channel Eleven (11) has a significant impact on this chart as you can see in the below playlist.

Aha! I'll have to keep an eye on that and see if it updates before I post the chart to help put some more sense into things.
Feb 11th

It's a wild one this week. For yet another year we have to acknowledge the excessively profitable Fifty Shades series which continues to show upswell every time a new film is out. From that we have a huge boost to a new #1 for Ellie Goulding with "Love Me Like You Do", which is actually so high that there are two versions of the song ahead of the competition on iTunes. This is because for some reason, it's on the new soundtrack as well. It sits ahead of a very familiar top 10 aside from the returning Tina Charles. There is a bit more happening lower down namely that after nearly 2 years on the chart, Bon Jovi finally have a more respectable new peak for "Livin' On A Prayer", which had been stuck with a #22 peak for well over a year, but now has a more slick #15 to its name. To a lesser extent there's also a new peak for 50 Cent's "In Da Club", now up to his favourite number of #21, more on that later. Most debuts this week are previous bubblers, leading the pack are Missy Higgins' two, which entered together years ago, but now upgrade to the main chart. It's not her debut to this chart as "Everyone's Waiting" also charted prior, but now she extends the collection with "Scar" and "The Special Two". Pink Floyd are caught in-between major upswell as their songs were much higher midweek and don't really capitalise here, though "Comfortably Numb" is promoted to the main leagues and is actually their 2nd highest song this week. Hall & Oates also make an appearance from former bubbling territory, while the last debut is Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush's newly appearing "Don't Give Up".

A slightly stranger batch of debuts can be found on the main chart. Shout out to anyone who's thought about "The Hanging Tree" in the past 2 years, I'm guessing the Hunger Games sequel was aired somewhere as the track appears for the first time at #1. A little late from the Hottest 100 upswell is HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPS, greeted alongside the 2nd 2016 track to make an impression, Hilltop Hoods' newly eligible "1955". Belinda Carlisle has popped up a few times with "Summer Rain", but now "Heaven Is A Place On Earth" gets a turn of its own, sitting just ahead of a 2015 album track from Imagine Dragons, "Friction" actually being the first song from "Smoke + Mirrors" to make this chart thanks to a Mission: Impossible trailer. And lastly we have 50 Cent's "21 Questions" just scraping by at #20, I saw a semi-viral tweet about it noting that there weren't actually 21 questions, so I assume Facebook picked up on it later.

If you didn't know, the new form of music promotion that's really in right now is Olympic figure skaters dancing to songs. Of course, you'd easily not even notice it happened here, but it has resulted in another return to #1 for Disturbed, as well as to less notoriety, a 2014 Coldplay album track on the Bubbling Under chart. Otherwise this week, Valentine's Day was on Wednesday, but that has not kept the romantic cheese out of this chart, with huge boosts for anything remotely romantic. The Goo Goo Dolls have their highest position to date with "Iris" up to #4, while Toto have seemingly memed their way up to #7. Adele's "Hello" finally gets some real action up in the top 20, while 4 Non Blondes' perpetually returning "What's Up" sees new heights. Bryan Adams' "I Do It For You" is back in the chart for the first time since 2016, and at a new peak to boot, while Journey make for quite an emblematic climb up 1 spot to a new peak of #85. Katy Perry's "Roar" also returns which I'm noting because it's only been off the chart 4 times, and 3 of those times were the last 3 weeks. This week's debuts are surely a delight, as two of them are from Michael Bolton, and the other one is Black Lace's "Agadoo", in case your cheese needed restocking.

With "Iris" soaring, people may have remembered that The Goo Goo Dolls also did that other song, and "Slide" enters the top of the bubbling chart. Next up is a fresh debut with Shakira's "Try Everything" from the "Zootopia" soundtrack that just turned 2 years old, and I imagine is likely to eventually make the main chart as it's always been a consistent seller, like all songs from kids movies. Incubus chart for the very first time with "Drive", same going for Van Halen whose "Jump" entry this week is their first time ever charting. I don't know if it's because Frank Ocean covered "Moon River", but Deep Blue Something's "Breakfast At Tiffany's" seems too convenient of a debut otherwise. We then go back to the '80s courtesy of Mondo Rock & Noiseworks.

Feb 25th

Not much history is being re-written this week largely because most of the beneficiaries are songs that have already been big here. With a new album out this week, Vance Joy returns to #1 with "Riptide", now having charted for 2 years. Elsewhere, Queen have been touring here recently, and after nearly falling out of the chart a couple months ago, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is back in the top 10. There is a massive total of 1 new peak this week, and it's quite random as Sam Hunt returns to the chart for no discernable reason with "Take Your Time" at an all new high. As for debuts? There's a massive total of 1 this week, though it's quite noteworthy as it's the first 2016 song we've had hit the main chart. As predicted, Shakira breaks through with "Try Everything" in its 2nd week eligible.

The Bubbling Under chart is a bit more interesting and considerably more random. Debuting at the top we have "Come Way May" from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack. Then appearing for only the 2nd time ever, we have Nelly Furtado with another "Loose" single now in, with "Say It Right" at #2. In a big week for Robbie Williams, he has two new tracks appearing, going pretty far back in his catalogue with "She's The One" and "Feel". Boney M.'s "Sunny" is being used in a commercial and is their first non-seasonal song to chart. 5 Seconds Of Summer also returned this week and have their first appearance with "She Looks So Perfect", which is now 4 years old and I feel old.

Mar 4th

After the doldrums of last week, there's actually a fair bit happening this week. The main thing is that in case you somehow didn't know, Ed Sheeran is currently in the country and just kicked off his massive Australian tour. Though his songs have been perpetually residing on this chart for years, you might be surprised to learn that there was still room to grow, often in unexpected ways. Most notably, we've got something I never thought I'd see, and that is a climb to #1 for "Photograph", which has been charting for every one of the 89 weeks it has been eligible. Only a few times was it Ed's highest song on this chart, typically playing second fiddle to "Thinking Out Loud", but on the most pertinent of weeks, it takes a slight lead and gets the #1. Surprisingly however, Ed nearly missed #1 this week, as yesterday was Mardi Gras 40th anniversary celebrations in Australia. This came complete with a performance from no less than Cher, whose "Believe" bolts all the way to #3 this week. Not just that, but "If I Could Turn Back Time" also returns to the chart and after originally peaking at #76, now sits at #8. I do not know how many, if any people who purchased "Strong Enough", did so believing it was "Believe", but that also gives her a new entry at #21. Back to Sheeran though, he has one more new peak, with "The A Team" hitting the top 10 for the first time ever at #7. He also has two more debuts, which are rather surprising but he's running out of singles to debut on this chart. First is "Bloodstream", the original album version (the Rudimental version is oddly absent from the whole top 1500 even though if you search the song in the store, it seems that it is the higher selling version) at #20, and then his only ever song to appear in a triple j countdown, "You Need Me, I Don't Need You" at #30. But, he's also happy to share this success because Missy Higgins is touring alongside him and sees a massive boost, bigger than the one she had a few weeks ago. "Scar" bolts up to #6, and "The Special Two" also resides in the top 10 for the first time at #9. Essentially, the more years of nostalgia to build, the better, as her next entries in order are "Ten Days", "Steer" and "Everyone's Waiting". Elsewhere, Sam Hunt continues his out of nowhere boost as "Take Your Time" gets closer to the top 10. It also might seem weird to think that Queen and Robbie Williams are currently touring the country and that's *not* the biggest touring news at the moment. Nonetheless, both artists do very well, particularly Robbie who is less ever present on this chart, and sees debuts for "Feel", "Rock DJ", "She's The One" & "Come Undone". "Let Me Entertain You" & "Better Man" also hit new peaks. As for Queen, "Another One Bites The Dust" hits a new peak. It's somewhat peculiar that "Bohemian Rhapsody" is *only* #19, but I suppose it must be running out of new buyers. Disconnected from everything else, we scratch another song off the ARIA #1's bingo card with "It's Like That" sneaking in.

Much like Queen's current tour, the Bubbling Under chart is led by Adam Lambert, appearing for the first time ever with "Whataya Want From Me". Cher & Missy Higgins both collect an extra entry in this section, while I can only imagine that the people who put "Live Louder" back on everyone's TV's had to show everyone the rest of their daggy music collection as we've now got Aston Merrygold into the fold. There's a cover of "Ice Ice Baby" from a man who looks suspiciously like Rag'n'Bone Man that appears for the first time, having previously sold well before being eligible. Chicago pick up a pair of entries, and the old school times continue with 10cc appearing for the first time with...not one of their two signature hits. Stevie Wonder's "Happy Birthday" also appears. Lastly, we get especially modern as Fall Out Boy enter with a single that never really got pushed in Australia but "Uma Thurman" was quite a big hit in the US. Same going for Rihanna's "Love On The Brain", the first song to appear from her latest album "ANTI".

Surprisingly it's been about 8 months since "Thinking Out Loud" has hit #1 on this chart, even though, despite how top heavy my point system, I think it's the song that has accumulated the most chart points in that time period. Just bad luck week after week. Last week he was hoisted by his own petard, this week it's the surprisingly fruitful local promo for George Ezra that keeps him out. Indeed, it has been well over a year since he last appeared on this chart, but "Budapest" has gotten such a boost that it shoots all the way up to #1. Not only that, but "Blame It On Me" enters for the first time at a mighty #6. I am sure Ed Sheeran is not too bothered, considering he has 4 songs in the top 10 this week, two of which hit new peaks. "The A Team" is now up to #3 and "Lego House" is #10. Below the top 10 it's a bit of mixed fortunes as for which songs of his are up and down, but he's still not out of tracks to enter the chart, and this week we have another new one courtesy of "x" album track "Tenerife Sea" which is incredibly big on Spotify thanks to acoustic chill playlists. Also still on that touring kick is Missy Higgins, who impressively retains all of her songs from last week, and has "The Special Two" creep up just a little higher, it's actually ahead of "Scar" this week. We're super heavy on touring impact lately. While the internet has randomly decided to get angry about Bruno Mars this past week, Australia seems to be detached from that completely, or at least all promo is good promo. However, Bruno Mars is not so good at getting his songs to land in the right places on this chart, and has made a stupendous effort of not getting new peaks this week. In addition to some somewhat close cases, "Count On Me" and "The Lazy Song" re-enter at their old peaks. He does however get a new entry courtesy of "It Will Rain", though it remains behind its Twilight cohort "A Thousand Years" as has been the case for pretty much every week since that was released. Either way, Bruno has assisted elsewhere, as Dua Lipa has been touring with him, and "Be The One" considerably improves its peak to #15 this week. Just two other pieces of news this week, with "Spirit In The Sky" getting a slight new peak, and Hilltop Hoods finally entering the main chart with "1955".

New entry at the top of Bubbling Under this week. While Missy Higgins' tracks this week have been consistent, this week "The Sound Of White" bolts from the 900s on iTunes last week to enter the top here. More confusingly we've got a new entry at #2 from Australian comedy/country musician Pete Denahy with "Looking At My Phone", evidently cashing in on MGMT hype. Dropkick Murphys get their second ever entry with their more well known hit "I'm Shipping Up To Boston", while Bliss N Eso have a bit of a revival with "My Life" their only Bubbling Under eligible song around, so that's a debut. Somehow The Wiggles are #1 on iTunes albums right now, and they get a non-seasonal debut. The hit single version of "Bloodstream" debuts, while the long awaited debut to the chart for The Chainsmokers comes in form of "Don't Let Me Down".

Mar 18th

Ed Sheeran just finished his Sydney shows so this week on the chart might be peak satsheeration, though he's still got Brisbane to keep the momentum for next week. We nearly had a highly unlikely #1 this week as for quite some time, "The A Team" was actually leading the iTunes chart this week, even "The Special Two" had a stint. But in the end, we reach the logical conclusion of "Thinking Out Loud" returning to #1 for the first time in quite a while. His tour is responsible for the entire top 6 this week, which nets new peaks for "Scar", "The Special Two" and "I See Fire". Missy Higgins also bolts up to the top 30 with "Steer" coming somewhat closer to justify it being one of her two #1 hits. You might think that's the big news of the week, and it more or less is, but there's much more to talk about involving the fact that there's been one of the 10 annual country music awards on, and this one comes at a prime time to make sure the chart is loaded with the stuff. Mostly Luke Bryan for some reason, who has 6 songs on the main chart & 5 songs bubbling. The highest of which is expectedly "Play It Again" which reaches a new top 10 peak, while we span several albums of his career and get debuts for "Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day", "Rain Is A Good Thing", "Drink A Beer" and "I Don't Want This Night To End". It's not just him on the Luke front either as Luke Combs has another older song that has picked up momentum now with "She Got The Best Of Me" sneaking in. Leading the whole pack however is Darius Rucker, whose very long charting "Wagon Wheel" hits the top 10 for the first time ever. Randy Houser gets his first ever entry with "How Country Feels", and my least favourite song of 2015 also finds its way in. I actually thought The Band Of Heathens' "Hurricane" might be a Luke Combs cover but it's actually the older song of the two, so I'm not totally sure where it comes from, but it's a new entry as well. Assumably thanks to St. Patrick's Day, Dropkick Murphys get their 2nd ever main chart entry, and now highest ever with "I'm Shipping Up To Boston", while to the delight of everyone, Aston Merrygold makes the main chart. For the rest of the debuts, we go back to the classics, with A Flock Of Seagulls' #1 hit "I Ran" finally making the main chart, while Jackson Browne appears for the first time ever with "Running On Empty". Also Bruno Mars finally gets a new peak for "Count On Me" in its 32nd week, while Hunters & Collectors re-enter at the highest of new highs with "Throw Your Arms Around Me" at #69. Meanwhile last week's #1 from George Ezra has fallen all the way out of the top 100, his current single is still selling ok though.

Ed Sheeran just narrowly missed out on yet another chart debut as the Rudimental version of "Bloodstream" rockets up to a close #1 on the Bubbling Under chart, just 8 places short of the main chart. Luke Bryan's set of entries here continue with a bunch of songs I'm overall more familiar with than the first set, in particular I'm surprised "Drunk On You" has never bubbled under before this week. Dustin Lynch also had a good week, but mostly with singles from his latest album, so he can't crack the main chart, but comes in here with 2 new entries. Brothers Osborne slightly cheat the system debuting with their single "It Ain't My Fault" which only really peaked in popularity about 3-6 months ago, but was released in early 2016. Old Dominion appear here again with the 2nd main single from their debut album "Snapback", and Randy Houser has an additional entry as well with "Runnin' Outta Moonlight". In terms of new peaks, we've got Missy Higgins continuing the slow climb for "Where I Stood", The Chainsmokers bolting up and Rihanna re-enters "Love On The Brain" in the top 10.

It's time for another installment of 'I made a mistake'. This one is simple though because it's just from a week ago. I somehow missed Dustin Lynch, presumably because his song appeared before I got to the deluge of country entries and I just assumed it was from his current album. But no "Cowboys and Angels" is quite older than that, and it actually was due to debut at #10 last week, sorry Luke.

As for this week, we've got another of those big historical #1's as the record for longest climb to #1 is broken yet again by a song that has charted on all but 5 weeks of this chart. I am talking about Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years", whose role as perennial wedding song nets it strong sales week by week, but this time it's a more pertinent reason to see it up high, as it soundtracked a viral carpool video celebrating children born with Down Syndrome. After 124 weeks on the chart, "A Thousand Years" finally hits the top spot. In doing so, she prevents the increasingly climbing "Take Your Time" which is now all the way up to #2. Hunters & Collectors' "Throw Your Arms Around Me" jolts all the way into the top 10 at #6, and despite missing shows due to dental surgery, Dua Lipa does just like the album chart this week, and hits the top 10 for the first time ever with "Be The One". Meanwhile a lot of last week's country surge is down, but Luke Combs just keeps climbing, giving himself a second top 15 hit with "She Got The Best Of Me". Most of the new peaks this week are re-entering tracks, Shakira placing very highly with "Try Everything", Labrinth's "Jealous" and Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody" also on the up. For reasons unknown, more and more people are hearing "Get Stupid" on TV and deciding they want to go out of their way to hear it more on demand. Otherwise, despite a lot of the touring effect clearing out, it's a bit of a quiet week that only nets one debut, Ini Kamoze's huge hit "Here Comes The Hotstepper" which is currently on a KFC commercial.

There's a little more to note on the bubbling under chart. We have yet another arguable #101 peaker as Adele was just 1 spot away from the main chart with "When We Were Young". Also bucking the trend of this week, Luke Bryan's "Kick The Dust Up" actually climbs this week, sitting side by side with country's cultural cringe of a generation prior, Billy Ray Cyrus's "Achy Breaky Heart". For a more surprising debut this week, Soul Asylum's "Runaway Train" comes through, with the only other being Lionel Richie's "All Night Long (All Night)", which is only his 2nd ever song to make the bubbling under chart, after "Endless Love".

Apr 1st

There's not much going on this week so Disturbed snag a #1 pretty much by default. Meanwhile if you're wondering if the Ed Sheeran & Bruno Mars domination will ever end, who even knows. iTunes seems to have responded to it in kind by displaying both artist's catalogues on discount, which while it's a good way to get people to buy the albums, it also inevitably ends up reminding them that the songs exist too. Of particular note this week, "Just The Way You Are" cracks the top 10 for the first time at #5, and after several near misses, "Marry You" has a new peak of #21. Granted it's hard to get thrilled about new peaks this week when "Get Stupid" continues to gain more traction. a-ha do however seem to be on the way to more steady success as "Take On Me" gets a big boost to a new peak. Daddy Cool unluckily re-enter at their old peak of #30. As for debuts, there are 3 this week, all of which have previously appeared on the Bubbling Under chart, one much more notably than the other two. That one would be Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Bad Moon Rising", one of the longest runners on the chart at 18 weeks, which finally has a stroke of luck. For the other two, we have a recent breakout for Van Halen, as "Jump" takes them to the main chart for the first time, while this is an Easter chart so we have a non-secular entry for Hillsong Worship, with "O Praise The Name" being the first entry under the banner (Hillsong United's "Oceans" has also charted before).

Bubbling under we have a new #1 as Jesse McCartney's ARIA #1 hit "Beautiful Soul" gets ever closer to the main chart. Lana Del Rey also has the most upswell she's seen on this chart in a while as "Summertime Sadness" (the original of course) returns at #2. Lionel Richie continues to expand here too, and debuts "Dancing On The Ceiling". I'm surprised that Poison have never charted before but "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" now gets in. Same can be said of The Buggles and their #1 smash "Video Killed The Radio Star" only just now entering. Patti Smith with the help of Bruce Springsteen gets in for the first time, but it remains to be known if she can put up with the shit fact that people prefer the cover of "Heartbeats" to the original.

Apr 8th

I relish the final week before this chart goes to hell. For the time being, Disturbed continue their by-default standing at #1 while the top 10 continues to be comprised primarily of songs that have already hit #1. In fact, so filled with established hits on this chart, there's only one non-top 10 hit in the whole top 25. That comes from Melissa Etheridge whose Australian tour I imagine is under way and sees her charting for the first time ever (though she's reached the Bubbling Under chart once) with 3 debuts, the highest of which is "Bring Me Some Water" at #15. That also covers more than half of the debuts, with just two more to note, firstly Hailee Steinfeld's first single "Love Myself", and also DJ Casper's UK #1 hit "Cha Cha Slide". Very little to mention on the new peaks front either, we just have a new high for returning Def Leppard and also Hall & Oates. Poor Shaggy has spent nearly a year on the chart and hasn't cracked the top 30. Arctic Monkeys have new music coming and "Do I Wanna Know?" is back in the chart for the first time in about 2 years, while Bon Jovi are curiously charting with "It's My Life" but not "Livin' On A Prayer". Imagine Dragons had all 3 of their entries from last week drop out, and they're all next to each other on iTunes.

Though the country boom of a few weeks ago has subsided a bit, out of nowhere we have a new bubbling #1 from Randy Houser, whose "We Went" was actually charting on iTunes way back in 2016 when I first started recording it for this, and now after 2 years of silence, has returned high enough to almost make the main chart. Jason Mraz hit a new weekly Spotify peak for "I'm Yours" and it's also back here to extend its record for bubbling weeks. I don't know if it's a coincidence that Kurt & Courtney's daughter has been in the music news lately, in the same week that Hole debut "Celebrity Skin" here so draw your own conclusions. Newly eligible this week is Drake's "One Dance" which gets in straight away, and it's not the only Drake news as a 2nd "ANTI" hit comes in, "Work" featuring Drake. Surprisingly Chumbawamba only just now get their first entry, while less surprisingly it's the first time in for cartoon metal band Dethklok, whose music soundtracks the BATMETAL video series that made a recent return.

It pains me to write this, but as the iTunes chart shows time and time again, there is a bizarrely lucrative market for cover versions, and specifically, there is a lucrative market for 'dude turns effective pop song into miserable stripped down ballad' covers. Thanks to a never ending sales rebound, we have a #1 debut for the first time in 8 months, and it's Calum Scott's cover of "Dancing On My Own" that some 2 years ago sent Robyn's original version into the chart (she actually still sells well, just never enough to return to the chart). It has just become eligible and so probably plans to join the set of songs that frequently make up the top 10. Incidentally it's a very familiar top 10 this week, with 8 #1's among it no less. The main action elsewhere on this chart comes from the debuts and re-entries. Next up is a bit of an oddity, with a 10 year old Busby Marou track being picked up for a tourist campaign and entering this week at #21. Following that we have a good week for Sia, one where her highest track is...a piano version of "Elastic Heart" featured on the deluxe version of "1000 Forms Of Fear". There are 3 new peaks this week and they're all from re-entries. The first is by far the most noteworthy, as Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" is essentially the baby boomer version of "It Wasn't Me" for how long it spends on this chart but primarily in the bottom half, it also nearly matches Shaggy's peak now as it re-enters at #29. Also re-entering to new peaks are 2 songs that are only on their 2nd week, Trisha Yearwood's monster hit version of "How Do I Live", and also Big Mountain's "Baby, I Love Your Way", the latter exactly halves its peak. There are two more new entries to mention, firstly the first time ever in for Sugarland with "Stay", and also a very big hit for Drake with "One Dance" advancing to the main leagues in its 2nd eligible week, thus ensuring it will probably join the league of "Hotline Bling" and almost never appearing on the chart again because it's mostly only high enough for the bubbling chart that it's not eligible for anymore. Otherwise, the main thing I took away from this chart is the sight of many old faces that have been missing from the chart lately. So say welcome again to "Chasing Cars", "Ni**as In Paris", "Hey Brother", "The Next Episode", "Slice Of Heaven", "Skyfall" and "A Sky Full Of Stars", among many others.

Kylie Minogue released a new album last week, but just now she impacts the chart with "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" returning to the Bubbling Under chart, this time at #1, though quite some way from the main chart. The highest new entry is a song that I have not thought about in a long time, Madcon's "Beggin'" at #3. Lionel Richie continues to have 2 songs on the chart, and "All Night Long (All Night)" hits a new peak even though it's lower on iTunes than it was 2 weeks ago. Joining him in that sense is Stevie Wonder with two re-entries, and more notably Andy Grammer with two debuts. We've got the first time credited in the chart for Aloe Blacc with "I Need A Dollar", while Dobie Gray's '70s hit "Drift Away" gets into the chart as well. Lastly we have the other version of "How Do I Live" which was a monster hit in the US, courtesy of LeAnn Rimes who has now made the Bubbling Under chart with two songs.

Apr 22nd

It's another one of those sad weeks here. Particularly pertinent in how untimely it all is. Avicii was found dead this weekend at just the age of 28. Perhaps more so than any past instance before, we have an artist whose success was largely defined in the digital charts, having been a mainstay of the charts from 2011 to as recently as a month ago. So we've got two countering forces at play where this chart represents digital purchases which means a lot of it has been tapped already because of how big some of these hits are, but it also means perhaps a greater resonance for the demographic of people doing so. Evidently the latter wins out because the top end of this chart is filled with his oeuvre. Unsurprisingly taking the top spot is his big ARIA #1 hit "Wake Me Up", a song that's already been a mainstay of this chart and gotten as high as #6 beforehand. After that, things don't lean quite into this chart's history, as his 2nd highest placer is his career launching single "Levels" which has never even made the bubbling under chart before this, and yet it beats out his other strong catalogue seller "Hey Brother" which takes #3, and one time bubbler "The Nights" follows at #4. The rest of his catalogue is completely new to this chart, and featured here are all of his eligible top 50 singles and then some. Incidentally, Coldplay's "A Sky Full Of Stars" which he had a hand in, re-entered last week, but narrowly drops out this week. Aside from Avicii, this week is heavy on the oldies, with big new peaks for Rupert Holmes & Journey, while Culture Club finally get in with their #1 hit "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me", and also surprisingly for the first time ever, Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive". The last debut fits into none of these categories, but is instead Cam's very stripped down country hit "Burning House". I am also mildly entertained that today marks the 2 year anniversary of Camp Cope's first album, and incidentally with ANZAC Day around the corner, Georgia's father's band Redgum re-entered today. There's also a belated impact for Beyonce's terribly timed Coachella performance from a week ago, which sees "Crazy In Love" and also "Say My Name" re-enter the chart.

Beyonce was also terribly timed because "Lemonade" doesn't turn 2 years old until tomorrow, though conveniently for her, the top track from that is the prior released "Formation" which gets to the bubbling under section. Avicii has one entry in the bubbling under chart with his "Feeling Good" remake (though "For Another Day" was also close), and he also gets a name-drop via Mike Posner's "I Took A Pill In Ibiza", which is why everyone has been thinking about the song again. Ariana Grande's new single was released on Friday and seemingly randomly it's "Love Me Harder" that represents her this week, possibly helped by strong sales for The Weeknd lately. Two very different Bishops debut this week, firstly Bishop Briggs with her recently eligible "River" which has been a surprisingly strong seller for a while now, and secondly Elvin Bishop with a track from the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack. DNCE are always riding high with "Cake By The Ocean", and now people remember they also had the song "Toothbrush". Metro Station jump from even further obscurity with "Shake It" debuting, while Tom Cochrane replaces Rascal Flatts and finally lays claim to the most popular version of his song at the moment.

Apr 29th

A week passes but Avicii still leads the pack. It was a rather competitive week with several high placing songs throughout the week. DNCE had this under control mid-week as "Cake By The Ocean" nearly hit #1 on iTunes thanks to The Voice, so this week they're far higher than they were when they actually hit #1 on this chart. Cat Stevens also saw a big jump for "Father and Son", which re-enters in the top 10 though is unable to score a new peak. Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work" recently appears in The Handmaid's Tale, giving her a 3rd entry and 2nd top 10 hit. By sheer coincidence to those of you who are familiar with her early '90s work, there's also a debut this week for "The Rubberband Man" which is apparently in a TV commercial. Also in a commercial and rather surprising to see here is Kevin Morby's "Harlem River" in the top 20 no less. The Voice also helps Prince return with "When Doves Cry", and notably a debut for Tonic's "If You Could Only See", a potential #1 if only this chart extended back to 2010. This week also sees a bunch of debuts from former bubblers from Pat Benatar, R.E.M. & Scorpions. In terms of new peaks, Def Leppard are back at it again with "Pour Some Sugar On Me" now up to #25, while a big boost for several Pitch Perfect things (that do not appear here) extends to Jessie J's "Flashlight" now at #44.

Just missing out on a main chart entry by 1 place on the iTunes chart is a new entry here for Christina Aguilera. "Fighter" opened up her recent Carpool set and debuts at #1 on the Bubbling Chart. In fact the whole top 6 on the Bubbling Under chart are at their current peaks. Midweek we had the news of Paul Gray from Wa Wa Nee passing away, which saw "Stimulation" back in the iTunes top 100 a few days ago, though it at least still appears here. The list of debuts this week is rather small though, the only other two being Lauryn Hill's classic "Doo Wop (That Thing)", and a track from the score of The Avengers, as Infinite War recently opened in theatres.

This is really fascinating reading, well done! How do you keep track of when a song will be eligible for the chart? If it's a spreadsheet, that must be a massive document

PS: The guy who just followed you on last.fm? That's me
Haha thanks. Oddly enough the list of songs I keep track of on my spreadsheet is quite small. I generally just add to it gradually as I notice that a song that's coming close to age keeps hanging around the top 600 on iTunes, but at the moment there are only 7 songs I've got on watch, and 4 of them will become eligible next week
May 6th

It was a very close battle, but DNCE climb back to #1 despite falling quite a bit compared to last week's chart, they were just falling slower than Avicii. The Killers made themselves contenders for a first time at #1 with their Australian tour underway, and "Mr. Brightside" climbs back to #3 with several other tracks lower down. Making waves this week is Eurovision. With 2018's contest coming up very soon, there's been some renewed interest in several older entries, all of the affected tracks being eligible. The highest position here goes to Dami Im who of course represented Australia very strongly 2 years ago with "Sound Of Silence". Also cracking the main chart is Laura Tesoro's "What's The Pressure", also a top 10 finisher from 2016. In fact it's a generally solid week for 2016 tracks as we've also got two long anticipated debuts, Justin Timberlake being somewhat penalised by selling multiple versions of "CAN'T STOP THE FEELING!" though still landing high, and Keith Urban whose album release timing was unfortunate in terms of topping the chart, but perhaps good for putting interest in "The Fighter" at the right time. Also from 2016 we've got the Idol version of Kelly Clarkson's "Piece By Piece". In a surprising turn of events, there are no new peaks this week but there's one last debut as Def Leppard get "Love Bites" in to join "Pour Some Sugar On Me".

No new peaks on the Bubbling Under chart either oddly, as the focus is primarily on the new entries. Christina Aguilera is unlucky yet again to hold #1 with "The Fighter", having climbed a bit on iTunes too. The Bubbling Under chart is where we find some Eurovision winners from Mans Zelmerlow, Loreen & Johnny Logan, and a runner up from The Common Linnets. P!nk keeps up the 2016 fever with her #1 hit "Just Like Fire" slightly belatedly finding a way into the chart, while The Killers surprisingly find an inclusion that didn't get swept up during their last visit as "Shot At The Night" gets in. For something I didn't expect to see here, we've got Santigold's 2011 collaboration with Karen O, "Go!" being the first time charting for either artist, while Nina Simone gives us a 3rd version of "Feeling Good" to make the Bubbling Under chart, following Michael Buble & Avicii.
