Forum - Other Charts: Australia - Non ARIA - Unofficial Catalogue Singles Chart Pt. 4

Part 3: http://www.australian-charts.com/forum.asp?todo=viewthread&id=50685

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.

We start off the 4th year of this chart with one of the less eventful charts in recent memory. Cold Chisel's surprise #1 "Flame Trees" has retained the top spot for a second week in a row. They had some mid-week competition from Michael Bolton but he seems to have slipped back a bit in the past few days, though still making an impressive #2 finish. A new peculiarity of the Cold Chisel story here, "When The War Is Over" climbs to #3, which means "Khe Sanh" is only their 3rd highest peaking song on this chart now, and falls out of the top 10 this week. Darius Rucker returns to his #8 peak and most of the rest of the top 10 is former #1's. Songs not quite getting new peaks is a good theme for this week, in addition to "Wagon Wheel", we also have "Dreams", "Say You Won't Let Go" & "Walking In Memphis" having near misses. Dean Lewis does have some luck, improving the peak of "Waves" by 1 position to #16, he has the only song in the whole top 30 to not reach the top 10. The release of his new album brings Paul Kelly back into the chart for the first time in several months, but then you might also want to attribute the fact that I just posted the song in the Stats thread, because "No Diggity" & "Jessie's Girl" also re-enter. Also making a big re-entry is "Time To Say Goodbye", not because of the Jason Derulo song I imagine, but because Bocelli performed at BEATURIIICHIII's Royal Wedding. That's not the only VN reference I can make either, because Rachel Platten has a '99 9' on her row of numbers. In a good week for former very low charters, Adele improves 50 places to #49 with a re-entry for "When We Were Young", while The Screaming Jets also finally improve the peak of "Better", which with its #100 peak was actually the very bottom song on my cumulative stats. There is only 1 debut this week, with Elton John finally getting into the main chart with "Bennie and the Jets".

I have an error to report but fortunately it's one of the least significant ones there could be. In fact it only impacts last week's Bubbling Under chart, as I left off LP (not to be confused with members of MS MR or Run The Jewels) and her song "Lost On You". Anyway, leading the pack this week is Tash Sultana, who was very close to the main chart, "Jungle" would have been #103 theoretically. R.E.M.'s long runner "Losing My Religion" gets a new peak, while the Jackson 5 also re-enter at a new top 10 height for "I Want You Back". There are a few relatively fresh debuts this week, and there could be more next week as some big hits become eligible. Leading the pack we've got the first time in the chart for Marshmello's whose breakout hit "Alone" has a good sales week. Panic! At The Disco's promo tour has been relatively silent on this chart, but they sneak two debuts here, though not the most obvious cuts from two of their recent albums.

Oct 21st

It is finally time for the least surprising #1 outside of Christmas. It's been known months in advance that the Queen biopic that just happened to be called "Bohemian Rhapsody" was coming and it will shock nobody to see that "Bohemian Rhapsody" is in fact #1 again. In saying that, for this week at least, it almost wasn't #1 as very close behind was a debut for Peter Gabriel. "Solsbury Hill" is being used in a coffee ad starring George Clooney and means that Peter Gabriel can claim to being the Genesis member with the highest appearance on this chart, and he's one of 3 that have an impact this week. Taylor Swift has a good week and nearly gets "Shake It Off" back to its #3 peak. The other noteworthy top 10 news this week is another debut, this time a song that only just became eligible today, as it marks the 2 year anniversary of Lady Gaga's "Joanne" album. I've been wondering if "Million Reasons" might eventually make this chart but I didn't account for Lady Gaga having a monstrously successful soundtrack at the very moment it became eligible, so it easily comes in at #7. Elsewhere, the general public are evidently very enthusiastic about Makoto from Persona 5 because there are 8 entries in the top 100 for Queen this week. Only one of them gets a new peak with "Another One Bites The Dust" up to #38, although it's also the first time in the main chart for "Crazy Little Thing Called Love". There are a lot of modern new peaks this week too. Dean Lewis continues to creep up slowly with "Waves" up another spot to #15, while recent entrants for Bruno Mars & Bishop Briggs come charging back in new form. After just missing a new peak last week, James Arthur is now in the top 50 with "Say You Won't Let Go". On the older side of things, Fleetwood Mac have a big new peak for "Everywhere" up to #30, similar story for Jackson Browne's "Running On Empty" which previously just snuck in at #99 but is now up to #24. Making big waves this week is Charli XCX who is just about to start a tour here. Surprisingly her highest entry here is "Break The Rules", ahead of a re-entry for "Boom Clap" and a debut for "I Love It". Another former bubbler debuts too with Boney M.'s "Rasputin" giving the group their first non-Christmas entry on the main chart. And finally of course I have to mention that our prime minister's website was not renewed a few days ago meaning that someone was able to buy it for $50 in an auction. And what do you do when you have Scott Morrison's website at your disposal? Of course you make it play the song "Scotty Doesn't Know" from EuroTrip. So shout out to Matt Damon, or more actually the band Lustra for getting their first entry here. I also have to note that Ed Sheeran's "Photograph" has dropped out for the first time ever, having charted every single week since being eligible 2 years ago. It wasn't even high enough to be on the Bubbling Under chart this week amazingly.

We nearly had a full clear out of the Bubbling Under chart this week. It was also yet another round of misfortune for Shakira with "Hips Don't Lie" coming ever so close again to a debut. She does however overtake Dire Straits again for the outright 2nd longest runner, making no progress to taking over the leader though because Jason Mraz is back again too. Foreigner have the only song holding on from last week, and they also have the highest debut, courtesy of "Waiting For A Girl Like You". In the world of new peaks, we've got Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift and Florida Georgia Line gracing the top 5 for the first time with their respective tracks. There's another debut that just became eligible today also, Clean Bandit's #1 hit "Rockabye" making an instant impact. Speaking of #1 hits, we've got a new peak for Cheap Trick's "The Flame", and also two more debuts, with Mike + The Mechanics possibly getting some tangential splash back from Peter Gabriel, and also Wet Wet Wet's "Love Is All Around" obviously paying off from QLVG. Cher has a relatively recent debut with her 2013 track "Woman's World", while Lady Gaga has another entry with the title track to "Joanne". Speaking of Gaga, Queen enter with..."Radio Ga Ga", while Broods have a less expected debut for their 2016 track "Heartlines".

Well I opened up the iTunes chart today expecting nothing out of the ordinary and that is not what I got. It would be entirely reasonable to believe that Queen would retain #1 with the film release right around the corner, in fact it improved from #85 on iTunes last week to #51, but that still has "Bohemian Rhapsody" down to #3 because as it turns out, everyone and their mother was doing benefit shows this weekend. Because of that we have a new #1 and it actually comes from Birds of Tokyo who played at the Closing Ceremony of the Invictus Games last night. I'm assuming they just played 2 songs because they've had huge boosts primarily for their current single and also "Lanterns" which originally peaked at #10 on this chart and hasn't been seen since 2016, but now boasts a #1 title. Fellow 'an' noun singles "Anchor" and "Plans" are just shy of the Bubbling Under chart, while the more recent "I'd Go With You Anywhere" just sneaks into the main chart. Also playing at this ceremony was Colin Hay, for which "Down Under" re-enters, Starley who debuts both original & remix of "Call On Me", and Aloe Blacc who has quite a bit of action. He's never been credited on the main chart because of vintage Avicii, and only previously bubbled under with "I Need A Dollar". He solves both of those issues at once as his own solo version of "Wake Me Up" and "I Need A Dollar" both enter in the top 10, the former just above Avicii's version. "The Man" also enters in the top 20. But that wasn't the only show that happened as there was also a farmer benefit concert held. It was a pretty stacked line up to show here, as we have Daryl Braithwaite, John Farnham, Jon Stevens, Guy Sebastian, The Veronicas & Andrew Farriss showing up here because of it. Daryl also performed "The Horses" at the Cox Plate because of course he did, and if not for surprisingly strong competition would be #1 this week. He'll have to settle with his collection of other entries this week. Jon Stevens perhaps had the best benefit, he even has a new single in the top 10 on iTunes right now, but Noiseworks' only recent debut "Take Me Back" is now up to #4, with a solo version debuting lower down while "Touch" also debuts in the top 20. He's also cluttering up the Bubbling Under chart big time. John Farnham perhaps has his best week though "You're The Voice" can't get a new peak. He does however have 3 debuts alongside it. The Veronicas get what is only their 2nd ever main chart entry with "Untouched". Conrad Sewell didn't technically perform at the show but I think he was part of a pre-show thing, and notably "Remind Me" debuts. To return to Queen though, they just keep climbing and I'm expecting big things next week. "We Are The Champions" and "Another One Bites The Dust" score new peaks, while the debuts keep coming, this week "Radio Ga Ga" doing so. It's not all uplifting news as Tony Joe White debuts with "Polk Salad Annie" in the wake of his passing earlier this week. Andra Day's "Rise Up" is back in the chart thanks to its usage on Doctor Who this past week. Taylor Swift tour hype continues to boom seeing a big collection of her songs back in the chart, including "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" which hasn't been in the chart since 2015, and also there's a debut for "Style". Halloween continues to be more and more poorly timed for this thread each year, but that hasn't stopped "Monster Mash" for returning 4 years in a row now (though "Thriller" and "Time Warp" are absent). Charli XCX proves last week not a fluke as "Break The Rules" and "Boom Clap" both score new peaks. With this big clutter of a chart, it's been difficult for the heavy hitters, and notably Disturbed who hadn't left the top 20 at all since debuting over a year ago, are down to an all new low of #32.

Bubbling Under is largely an extension of all the main chart action, though what looked to be a random debut for Broods is shaping into something more as "Heartlines" takes a big jump into the top 5. We have an entire top 4 of Jon & Johns because John Denver scores another entry, this time with "Thank God I'm A Country Boy". Queen have even more potential debuts as "You're My Best Friend" hits a new peak and "I Want It All" debuts. The Weeknd returns with a new peak for "Starboy", on a noteworthy week because "I Feel It Coming" has just now become eligible and debuts a little lower down. Dire Straits snatch back 2nd place for longest runner after Shakira took it off of them last week while there are more curious debuts for Jennifer Lopez's "Let's Get Loud" and The Prodigy's "Breathe", the latter unlucky to never benefit from that time earlier this decade it was used on an ad.

Thanks for the chart as always.

I was wondering why all these Australian songs got boosts yesterday.
Looking forward to seeing how Queen perform from thursday as they have now got 3 songs in the iTunes Top 100.
Nov 4th

Queen. If when I said that, you were hoping for Queen Bey, I regret to inform you that everyone was instead faking it to "Bohemian Rhapsody" (there is some Bowie though). With the film out, it's in complete control of the top 10 and most of the top 20 as well. "Bohemian Rhapsody" is back at #1, everything else is getting a new peak, except for "Under Pressure" but this is certainly the highest it's been when the climb is associated with Queen and not Bowie. There are a good handful of debuts too. Some Freddie Mercury solo appearances, notably UK #1 hit "Barcelona" with Montserrat Caballe who died quite recently. As for Queen, it's a cavalcade of every other song of theirs you can think of and then some. The highest non-Queen entry is Lady Gaga's "Million Reasons" and the highest not related to a motion picture is Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off". Her touring impact is somewhat stifled with a crowded chart. Charli XCX on the other hand does pretty well, with big climbs for new leader "Boom Clap" and "Break The Rules" with "I Love It" re-entering in the top 40 as well. The only other new peak this week comes from Moby's song "Flower", which is obviously because of my 1999 EOY coming soon which is the year "Play" came out. The only other debuts this week are pretty modern, Sia with her 3 year old song "Bird Set Free" and Broods leapfrogging "Heartlines" and instead debuting with "Free" at #100.

"Heartlines" does hold #5 from last week though. Leading the pack is Taylor Swift's most noted impact this week, a debut for the Kendrick Lamar version of "Bad Blood" at #1, the original version having already made the main chart and being considerably more popular nowadays. It's not the only Kendrick Lamar remix of a popular song either, as his version of "Radioactive" with Imagine Dragons also debuts lower down. That's not the only Imagine Dragons hip hop collaboration this week either, as "Sucker For Pain" gets a new peak. Post Malone's tour has recently gone on sale but the impact isn't very pronounced. It does time up nicely with "Congratulations" which just turned 2 years old today and enters at #2. A song I thought was a bit newer than it is, Thomas Rhett debuts with "Die A Happy Man", and also in the pop-country realm, Keith Urban's "Blue Ain't Your Color" gets a new peak. There's more Queen with two more debuts here, one a recognisable song, one a very long to type out live track, which I counted as it was an old release as opposed to the newly released Live Aid tracks on the soundtrack. The Prodigy climb a bit higher with "Breathe" the week their new album is out, while Illy and Vera Blue get a new entry for "Papercuts" after they performed it together on ABC's new show "The Set", which was otherwise mostly impacting ineligible songs.

Nov 11th

No need to be alarmed, the country and indeed the world's love for Makoto Niijima as personified by her metaverse name of Queen stands strong. Doubling as kind of boring but also kind of interesting is the sheer consistency. The songs are largely as high as they were last week, and amazingly, largely in the same order, with the entire top 8 retained from last week. It'd also be the top 9 except for the timely date of this week's chart, it being November 11th, we have the roughly biannual return of "The Last Post", most popular nowadays by The Bugler but there are 4 different versions of it going around. I'm most fascinated by The Miltary Bugler, which is not my typo. There are two other notably interesting things about Remembrance Day here. Firstly, likely due to date convenience, Lee Kernaghan gets a debut for "Spirit Of The Anzacs" which only made the Bubbling Under chart on...Anzac Day this year. The other interesting thing is that while Redgum miss out on a new peak due to all the Queen, they make for a very aesthetically pleasing set of metadata, with their WI & HP next to each other being 11, on 11/11. To note with Queen, they do score some new peaks with "Killer Queen", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", "You're My Best Friend" and "Love Of My Life", and now take up 15 of the top 16. Peculiarly, the two high charting Freddie Mercury tracks have left the chart this week, but we otherwise have the exact same 20 Queen songs as last week. And this week is all about high peaks squandered by Queen, but there are some that manage regardless. Choirboys are back with "Run To Paradise" now in the top 20. I believe Flo Rida is here on the R&B Fridays tour, and while he might be infamous for his inability to play Australian shows from 2011, it's instead T-Pain who couldn't make it which might explain why "My House" scores a big new peak but "Low" has a less notable re-entry. For the same reason, Usher has a big debut for "U Got It Bad" and a return for "OMG" lower down. Back to the new peaks, we've got returning entries from Scorpions & Grace. I might have expected Mariah Carey to return last week but she's here now and we'll have to see when she'll be able to shake up the top end of the charts with this especially tough competition. To round out the debuts for this week, what you'll see lower as a big week for Grease peaks with "You're The One That I Want" finally promoted to main chart status, while The Chainsmokers get their second ever entry with "Don't Let Me Down".

I didn't note Def Leppard in the main commentary because both of their songs barely missed new peaks, but they do have a new arrival for "When Love And Hate Collide" at #1 on the Bubbling Under chart. Also extending main chart fortunes is Usher, who gets two more debuts with "U Remind Me" and "Confessions Pt. II". Unbelievably there's even more Queen with 2 more debuts here. As noted, there are two more Grease tracks here which means we've got the whole Grease Megamix on the chart this week, and speaking of '90s #1 hits, Roxette get their second here with "It Must Have Been Love". To finish this chart off with an awful joke, the chart this week finishes with the biggest hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1998, the song that has surely taught many of us not to get either too excited or too close to a woman when you're grinding. The song has surely prevented many awkward situations in our lives so we have to say thank u, Next.

Nov 18th

It was just recently that we passed the one year anniversary of same sex marriage being legalised in Australia, and by sheer coincidence we've got what might just be the highest representation of LGBTI+ artists on the chart this week. Surprising nobody, Queen are still on top, and they've crept up even more in this 3rd week of total domination. This time it does come with a bit of a reshuffle, as "Somebody To Love", "Radio Ga Ga" & "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" move up in the ranks to new peaks. They're also still getting new entries with 3 more debuts this week. Also going well this week is a former collaborator with Queen, George Michael, who appears to have a similar biopic in the works. When he died, it was in the high selling December period so his impact on this chart was somewhat squandered. This means that on this less major news week, he actually manages to get some new peaks with some of his entries, and some new entries entirely as well, all the debuts this week are from these two artists. The entire top 24 is made up of Queen & George Michael tracks, with one exception being Flo Rida's spectacularly high "My House" which would be an easy #1 in most weeks but is instead only #10. That's thanks to the R&B Fridays tour, which also bolsters Lil Jon's "Get Low" to a new peak this week. Red Hot Chili Peppers recently announced an Australian tour giving them their biggest success here in over 2 years. Elton John also has a big week and you can tell everybody it's because of "Your Song" being used on this year's John Lewis Christmas ad. Once again, the mass Queen impact at the top of the chart is a stress on chart regulars, and "The Sound Of Silence" and "Thinking Out Loud" both hit all new lows.

Nov 25th

for 4 weeks in a row, the nation has proved its inner Sløtface fan letting "Bohemian Rhapsody" sit at #1. The Queen monopoly is starting to slip a little, partially because the power of selling cars is sending Flo Rida high, high, high, high, high, high, high. Yet again, "My House" is considerably higher than most #1's but has to settle for #4. It prevents "Don't Stop Me Now" from getting a new peak as it is now 7th in the Queen pecking order for the first time. The only Queen song that does hit a new peak is "Love Of My Life" at #14. Apart from that, we've got the delayed success of Mariah Carey, who could easily be at #1 at this stage but now it's a question of just how long it will take as she only just hits the top 10. This is a considerably lax week with only one more new peak to mention as Aqua's "Barbie Girl" returns to the chart for the first time in years. There are also only 2 debuts, firstly Peter Gabriel replaces "Solsbury Hill" with "In Your Eyes" which has reached the Bubbling Under chart before, and also having recently released their 5th album, Little Mix finally enter with "Secret Love Song".

There's a bit more going on with the Bubbling Under chart. One of only 2 songs to hold from last week's chart, Soul Asylum hit #1 for the first time with "Runaway Train". Halsey gets a relatively fresh debut with the updated version of "Castle", but there are three newer songs impacting. Firstly The Weeknd's "I Feel It Coming" returns with a big new peak, now outpeaking "Starboy". On the debuting front is Ellie Goulding's "Still Falling For You" which became eligible a few months ago, and also Pnau's "Chameleon", which became eligible a few weeks ago. #1 hit bingo returns. The Rolling Stones have what I think is their newest song to ever make an impact, "Start Me Up", while Guy Sebastian has what I think might be his oldest song to make an impact, "Like It Like That". Brad Paisley gets his first ever entry with the excellent "Whiskey Lullaby", while Birdy enters with the acoustic version of "Wings", that combined with Spotify breaking for a week, allowed the song to belatedly become a UK top 10 hit.

Dec 2nd

It's December. For the 13th non-consecutive week, Mariah Carey is at #1 with "All I Want For Christmas Is You". This is the slightly delayed act given by the fact that Queen have been decisively hogging the top end of the chart for the past month, and are still rather high now but not quite as much. The entire top 10 this week is the same 10 songs as last week but only 1 doesn't move. A little unfortunate for anyone banking on ARIA Awards effects. Amy Shark won Album Of The Year with an album that very much did come out this year but also features the 2 year old "Adore" on it which re-enters at a new peak of #11. Also notable is Kasey Chambers being inducted into the Hall Of Fame, and scoring a new peak of #12 with "Not Pretty Enough", and a debut for the relatively recent "Ain't No Pretty Girl", both of which were performed on the night. The only other new peak this week is one of the many in the increasingly laborious string of Christmas songs that are a nightmare to search for in my spreadsheet because everyone buys different versions of the same 20 songs. Kidsongs is having a good week though with "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer". The non-Christmas news of the week is that Bon Jovi are in the country, and it's serving up quite a curiosity. It's extremely fortunate that their latest album was released 2 years and 1 month ago, because two of their biggest sellers today are from that album, the title track "This House Is Not For Sale", and peculiarly, non-single "Roller Coaster". "Blaze Of Glory" also finally makes the main chart. For the first time since last year's Christmas chart, "Lose Yourself" is out of the top 50.

Kasey Chambers reaches the top of the Bubbling Under chart courtesy of "The Captain" in its first ever appearance. There's even more Kidsongs in here a #2 debut, which if the iTunes release date is to be believed, comes from the same era as Aerosmith's "Livin' On The Edge" which makes its debut. The only other debuts this week is are two songs that just became eligible last month, as we have now hit the Moana soundtrack here. Despite ARIA Chart fortunes, it's actually always wavered quite a lot. At present, "How Far I'll Go" narrowly takes the lead with "You're Welcome" just behind it. The Rock is on this chart, what a time to be alive.

Dec 9th

No way am I writing commentary on my birthday but I will note that "Always" is not a new peak, and that despite being in the top 300 today, Pharrell Williams' "Happy" is ever so unlucky to drop out for the first time, leaving "Lose Yourself" as the only song to appear on every single chart.

Dec 16th

Mariah has now spent more than half of her chart run at #1 as "All I Want For Christmas Is You" notches a 15th week at #1 across 4 different Christmas seasons. Even though they've been riding high for 2 months, Queen are still poised to take it back once this that blows over as they still have 6 of the top 10. Though last week was a hellish time with Buble having the 2nd highest Christmas song, he's now been relagated back to 5th. As you might expect, with the same Christmas songs climbing every year, not many can score new peaks until next week, so all we have for new peaks on that front is Michael Buble's "White Christmas" and Pentatonix's "Hallelujah", though it feels a stretch to say the latter is a Christmas song. Shania Twain fares well though with big climbs across the board. "You're Still The One" hits a new peak of #26 and she also scores 2 new entries with "I'm Outta Here!" and "Honey, I'm Home". The upcoming Dolly Parton biopic also helps "9 To 5" to a big new peak of #25. Otherwise the most noteworthy news is that iTunes are promoting a very selective portion of the biggest hits of 2018 to my chagrin as it clogs up the chart with songs I'd rather see sliding down, and knowing my luck they'll probably still be there for the rest of the holiday season. One song that benefits from this is Post Malone's "I Fall Apart", which took so long to become a hit that it's eligible here and after a bubbling entry last week, soars in at #23. "Waves" also nearly gets a new peak for the same reason.

I hate doing the Bubbling Under chart at this time of year because it's always a mixed bag of things I can't keep track of in terms of having charted before or being eligible. Incidentally most of the debuts this week come from Christmas songs that for whatever reason are only just now entering, though in the case of Queen it makes a bit more sense that they only enter now. Nonetheless apparently Boney M. have their own popular version of "Feliz Navidad" which enters at #1, and Chuck Berry also gets a debut. Unrelated to Christmas, Dire Straits have a good week with a new peak for "Walk Of Life", and Marshmello also scores a new peak with "Alone". The week's only other debut comes from Kanye West as "Flashing Lights" is currently being used on a commercial.

Dec 23rd

It's one last day before we're introduced to a new wave of chaos as much of this week's chart disappears again fro 11 months. To the shock of nobody, Mariah lasts a 4th straight week at #1 with "All I Want For Christmas Is You". After that, it's a totally different ball game as things are quite different from last year. We now have a 4th Christmas related song to reach #2 because this year's runner up is Paul Kelly's "How To Make Gravy", possibly helped by this week's chart being closer to Gravy Day. The rest of the guard has mixed up as well though. Lennon is #3 ahead of Wham!, and Buble is only #7. A lot of potential Christmas new peaks have also been sabotaged by the still ever-present Queen entries. Nonetheless, Chris Rea has a great year with "Driving Home For Christmas", and Mariah has some additional new peaks lower down. All of the debuts this week relate to the holidays. Michael Buble picks up two more entries. John Williamson gets what I think is his first ever festive entry with "Christmas Card", and Queen's bubbler from last week enters because we're still not done with Queen debuts. For a very modern entry, Ronan Keating enters with "Summer Wonderland" which was made for an airline two years ago. In extremely unlucky news, "Happy" is out again and is #101 for the week

Dec 30th

Christmas is not technically over, we've still 6 more days of it, but it effectively is when you consider listening habits. We've had nearly a total clear out from last week save for Mariah Carey still holding on lower down. This makes the top of the chart open season. Victory goes to a combination of timely popularity and timely iTunes promotion, which to my chagrin gives it to Post Malone's "I Fall Apart", no doubt benefitting greatly due to being #1 on Apple's Top 100 of 2018, and being a 2016 song. I can credit this because it only narrowly surpassed the more expected #1 from Queen. The big clear out means we're back to Queen domination and they have 6 of the top 10 again. Amidst this, "Don't Stop Me Now" actually manages a new peak. Flo Rida doesn't score a new peak but he's back to #4 with the still ever-present "My House". There is top 10 action however because Billie Eilish is seeing a big influx post-Christmas, with many of her soon to be eligible entries, but notably "ocean eyes" which climbs into the top 10 for the first time ever. Dean Lewis is also improving significantly on all fronts and after many weeks in the top 20, "Waves" sneaks into the top 10 for the first time. There is only one other new peak in the entire chart, and it's quite a noteworthy one because Kings Of Leon have finally returned to the chart for a 2nd week with "Sex On Fire", a song that is constantly doing decently on iTunes but never appears on the Bubbling Under chart because of 1 prior lucky week making the main chart. We've also got a small handful of completely disassociated debuts. Firstly The Righteous Brothers surprisingly just charting for the first time with "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" and then Patti LaBelle's "Stir It Up". Post Malone's first album is entirely eligible now, and gets another main chart entry with "Congratulations" sneaking in, and for another 2016 entry, we've got Florence + The Machine's cover of "Stand By Me", which if I recall was propped up earlier this year just before becoming eligible, but now manages an entry, just a little below Ben E. King's version.

Bubbling Under has a new #1 as Ariana Grande gets remarkably close to charting with "Into You" in its 10th week. One can never truly know what's going on with the BTS fandom but a 2016 track "Stigma" has been propped up this week. Possibly thanks to global warming(!), Glenn Frey enters with "The Heat Is On" with Thirsty Merc just a few places behind, that is where they be. Now that everyone isn't thinking about Frankie Goes To Hollywood's not-actually-Christmas song "The Power Of Love", they get a 2nd entry with "Relax". Please don't come into contact with any Malaysian Prime Ministers in the near future.

Jan 6th

The start of a new year doesn't technically have any significance on this chart although it can be seen as the changing of the guard as now it is possible for songs released in 2017 to make their entrance here, something that will be more significant than usual because the 3 biggest hits of 2017 were all released in the first half of January, more on that later. Anyway, for yet another week iTunes are still promoting the best of 2018 heavily which means that "I Fall Apart" is actually outselling Post Malone's current single and is #1 yet again. Fresh from scoring the #1 album in the country, perhaps it is now more appropriate for Queen to be riding high, as they seem to have regrouped a decent amount this week. Notably they're still scoring new peaks as "Radio Ga Ga" and "I Want To Break Free" have found themselves on the upper echelon of Queen power rankings and now sit at #3 & #4. I have a bit of a habit of using Ctrl-F a lot when I make this chart, which is often a balance of knowing how much to type to most efficiently find a song I'm searching. So many times have I searched the last appearance of 'sweet c' and been presented the wrong song because I keep forgetting there are two notable songs for that. This week they're both coincidentally doing very well, but especially Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" which improves its #25 peak to #9 this week. Mixed in with the usuals is another fresh face in the top 10, or rather I should just say a fresh song, because today marks exactly 2 years since Ed Sheeran released "Castle On The Hill", sending it specifically to #2 in charts all around the world for some reason. Perhaps that reason is because on the same day he also released "Shape Of You". As I've compiled these charts every single week, I've seen these songs battle back and forth for which one reigns supreme on iTunes (as "Shape Of You" wins comfortably on Spotify every single day). Today at least "Castle On The Hill" takes the win as "Shape Of You" can only muster #25 for now, but I can't imagine these songs are going away any time soon so there's plenty of chances to weigh them up. Yusuf Islam has had a good week here, perhaps his best ever as "Wild World" reaches a new peak, "Peace Train" debuts and so does "Moonshadow". Also returning for the first time in over 6 months is Johnny Cash's "Ring Of Fire" which narrowly scores a new peak. Perhaps the most noteworthy debut however in terms of this chart is Bob Marley & The Wailers' "Is This Love", which has spent over 20 weeks on the Bubbling Under chart without breaking through, even a popular trop house version couldn't do the trick. It's part of what is a good week for Bob Marley as "Buffalo Soldier" also debuts and there's more action bubbling under. It's not the only bubbler to rise to these ranks though, a good week for Rod Stewart brings "Sailing" into the main chart, and I believe being featured on an ad is paying proper dividends for "Endless Love" which makes the main list now.

Bubbling Under

This week's Bubbling Under is a curiosity in terms of songs that you might have thought had surely charted before already. Not in terms of the #1, which is Rod Stewart's "Rhythm Of My Heart", a song that has topped the chart previously as well, but oddly it's the first time ever for "Maggie May". We also have for the first time ever, representation of Neil Diamond through a song that isn't "Sweet Caroline", this time "Cracklin' Rosie" gets a turn. In a charming bit of loggy/logo synchronicity we have an entry from actually the era of Roy Orbison we've been exploring lately, "She's A Mystery To Me", which for more curiosity, was actually sitting next to fellow Wilbury Tom Petty on the iTunes chart. Speaking of classic hits, this week marks the debut for Bob Marley's famed live version of "No Woman, No Cry", and my personal favourite Elvis Presley tune, "Suspicious Minds". There's a new Mary Poppins soundtrack on the way but the old one is still around and I'm not typing out the title a second time but it's here. Fitz and the Tantrums probably wrote "HandClap" to be on an ad so I assume that's why it's here. The popular Unique II cover of "Break My Stride" briefly charted here a while back but now Matthew Wilder gets his version in the Bubbling Under, while a big influx for Taylor Swift manages to pull up a fan favourite from "Red", "All Too Well".

I am a bit surprised because Shape of You reentered the ARIA singles chart this week. Post Malone has a number 1 on both the official ARIA chart and the Unofficial catalogue chart (with different songs obviously).
Jan 13th

To my chagrin, iTunes is still heavily promoting the hits of the past and no matter how long such a thing lasts, it never seems to decline through overexposure. "I Fall Apart" is still #1. Last week there were 5 Queen songs in the top 10. This week there are 7. Most noteworthy in the top 10 is perhaps another beneficiary of the iTunes boost, making up for an unlucky debut last week, Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You" shoots into the top 10 at #4. It leads what is a relatively quiet week. The biggest debut comes from Lady Gaga, not with any association to "A Star Is Born", but because she publicly denounced her collaborator on "Do What U Want" and removed it from online music distribution. It's here however because for the time being, the Christina Aguilera version of the song is still available. I'm glad I decided to look at the trending page on YouTube last night because now I understand Susan Boyle has gone viral again on Britain's Got Talent, and her cover of "Wild Horses" is here because of it. This week has two new peaks to be mentioned, Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers return to a big new high with "Islands In The Stream", while Billie Eilish returns slightly higher for "Six Feet Under" in its 2nd week. There are also 2 more debuts. The first is easy enough, as the aforementioned last week massive hit of 2017, "Despacito" has now turned 2 years old. It's another 3 months until Gentrafido also becomes eligible and can properly do battle with the version which has perhaps superseded it considering it's comfortably the most viewed video on YouTube of all time. Lastly we have yet another long awaited debut, with Of Monsters and Men's "Little Talks" finally sneaking into the main chart after 20+ weeks on the Bubbling Under chart.

While he hasn't been waiting as long, The Weeknd can't have the same luck, as he just misses out by 1 place behind a song that originally blocked "Starboy" from #1 on the ARIA chart. #1 here is a new peak nonetheless. Debuts here are a bit of a mixed bag. Surprisingly Nicki Minaj's moster digital hit "Super Bass" is just entering for the first time. Also entering for the first time is Billy Idol, perhaps with the less obvious choice of "Dancing With Myself". On the less surprising side of things, we've got MKTO's first entry, with their international hit "Classic" which in spite of ARIA peaks, has arguably become their defining hit at this stage, even in Australia. Justin Timberlake is trolling the chart on a weekly basis with his "Trolls" hit, and now there's another with his and Anna Kendrick's cover of "True Colors". Finally there's Bob Sinclar getting his first ever entry, also not with his highest charting hit.

Jan 20th

As has been the case for the last 3 months, Queen. They continue to break records as "Bohemian Rhapsody" is the only song that can claim to being #1 on its 171st week on the chart. Once again they've got 6 songs in the top 10, a top 10 largely including familiar faces. "Don't Stop Me Now" continues to refuse to climb higher than #6. One song that does get a noteworthy new peak is "In The Air Tonight". With Phil Collins in the country, he's had a huge week and his most noted song is up to #3. That's not all from him though this week, with a big boon that includes debuts for "You Can't Hurry Love", "Don't Lose My Number" and "Sussudio". He's not the only one to benefit from being in the country, as Bastille finally make the main chart with "Pompeii", rather high at #11. Fleetwood Mac on the other hand, have merely just announced an Australian tour, and have had a big week themselves. Or kind of. A lot of their songs could have appeared on the Bubbling chart if not for some brief charting right at the inception of this chart, but they do at least score a new peak for "Dreams". Also announcing a tour is Mumford & Sons who score a new peak for "Little Lion Man". In non-touring news, Major Lazer's "Get Free" is on an ad and makes its impact here. We also continue the long run this year of long running bubbling hits entering the chart unexpectedly. This time it's "YMCA" which will no longer be part of that chart. Bruno Mars had a big week too, and after having a lot of failure with "That's What I Like" which often isn't even in the top 1500, it finally gets into the main chart this week. A major curiosity this week is the drop out for "All Of Me", a song that rarely ever drops out, but this time the album version which is always charting is not even in the top 1500, because for some reason it's disappeared from search results completely (though it's still available if you go to John Legend's iTunes page). Time will tell if this is a temporary glitch or we'll start a whole new run for the considerably shorter radio edit which is just below the Bubbling Under chart this week.

I seem to recall Hootie & The Blowfish having to have their chart entry rescinded due to an omission, now they're unlucky #101 yet again just 1 spot behind "Despacito". Despite the many long runners getting out of this rut, never worry about the fact that Jason Mraz is still here yet again. Phil Collins' impact extends to a couple of Genesis songs, and Mumford & Sons get a first time entry for one of their biggest hits, "The Cave".
