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".

Nice to see Get Free enter the chart
Jan 27th

I took this snapshot at midday during the Hottest 100 which means there's not really any impact from it, and because of lingering Australia Day effects, we've got one of the highest #100 thresholds ever. It would be very different if the snapshot was taken now. Yet again Men At Work take the top spot, though there's sadly no room for "Overkill" which I refuse to stop stanning. Nonetheless the impact of Australian music here is massive. Paul Kelly in particular has a great week with new peaks abound, even "How To Make Gravy" is charting past its expiration date, and "From Little Things Big Things Grow" has debuted. The highest debut is a severely of its time rounding up of Sony Australia's roster for a cover of "I Am Australian". There's also a curiosity in that after both appearing together in the Bubbling Under chart last year, both versions of "Treaty" have debuted. In a wild turn of events, Savage Garden finally make the main chart for the first time...with "Affirmation". There are non-Australian entries though, Florence + The Machine has a good week and "Shake It Off" is looked back upon fondly. Something something Simpsons reference with "Classical Gas" entering, and also Julia Michaels' very recently eligible "Issues" gets in. Keith Urban's frequent bubbler "Blue Ain't Your Color" also finally gets in. With all this Australian content there are huge drops for regulars. "Lose Yourself" is all the way down at #76, "Happy" is out of the chart by more than a few spots for once, and "Thinking Out Loud' is out for the first time ever. Meanwhile the "All Of Me" issue from last week has disappeared, so that's back. There's way more I need to type but I'm not up for it tbh :p

Feb 3rd

Someone is trolling me probably. 2 weeks ago "All Of Me" completely disappeared from the top 1500 because of search indexing shenanigans. It resolved itself afterwards returning the song to its arbitrary meandering around the top 100. Except just last night it shot into the top 25 on iTunes, the perfect time to snatch the top spot on this chart. It does make for an interesting instance where the entire top 5 are at their peak, which looks visually pleasing in the peaks column, but it also means that you can blame John Legend for all 4 of the songs not getting higher peaks. Flo Rida does claim a new one though, and perhaps a peak more appropriate for just how well "My House" has been selling at #2. Phil Collins does not have such luck as "In The Air Tonight" returns to its old #3 peak. At #4 we have a new debut courtesy of the Marshmello Fortnite concert, a combination of words that would surely sound really exciting if I was about 10 years younger than I am. Speaking of which it's followed by the fresh debut of Imagine Dragons' "Believer", that song that never truly wishes to go away, as is the case for most Imagine Dragons songs of late. Keith Urban has also been touring currently which gives him a good week in general but most notably last week's debut "Blue Ain't Your Color" gets a big jump to a new peak. The closest thing to Hottest 100 impact is with Hilltop Hoods scoring a new peak with "Cosby Sweater" now in the top 10 in its quest to usurp "The Nosebleed Section" as their big catalogue hit. "1955" also hits a new peak. We've also got all manner of nostalgia touring happening at the moment, Vengaboys have done well this week and "We Like To Party" has hit a new peak, the Vengabus is coming to #1. Fleetwood Mac also have scored a new peak for "Everywhere" in the top 20. Speaking of '90s, Deborah Conway has her first ever entry, and right behind her is Lou Bega's perennial bubbler "Mambo No. 5". Oh but you want even more disparate '90s stuff? Aqua have a new peak for "Barbie Girl", and Hootie & The Blowfish finally have "Let Her Cry" safely debuting. Phil Collins' extended impact continues and "Sussudio" & "Another Day In Paradise" score new peaks, while "Two Hearts" sneaks in a debut. The last debut to note is Brett Young's long running moderate sales hit "In Case You Didn't Know", just recently becoming eligible.

All of this extends further in the Bubbling Under chart as Vengaboys & Phil Collins score multiple entries, name a more iconic duo. For more '90s nostalgia although technically by way of a 2000s single, currently touring All Saints enter with "Pure Shores". Inauspicious weather cannot prevent Snowman impact, but there's an even more surprising entry with the title track to Leonard Cohen's last album released not long before he died. Also some all time classic pop hits "Turn Back Time" and "All Rise" get some time in the spotlight.

Is there any reason why Flo Rida's My House has been doing so well on iTunes in the past 2 months or so?
It's [s]a great song[/s] on a car ad.
^ Thanks. Thought it was linked to an ad
Feb 10th

There's a rumour that if I say the phrase 'because Fortnite' too many times I'll suffer some manner of aneurysm, so Marshmello is now #1 for no apparent reason. He's #1 by quite a way which prevents Imagine Dragons from scoring the first #1 peak for a 2017 single with "Believer". In fact we've got quite a modern top 3 as Billie Eilish continues to climb with "ocean eyes". It makes Flo Rida at #4 look remarkably vintage, although he is sitting next to a Queen song. What's remarkable about that, is that it isn't "Bohemian Rhapsody", for the first time since that movie came out, there's a different Queen song taking the lead, perhaps suggesting that it's people diving deeper beyond their initial curiosity calling the shots. Nonetheless "Don't Stop Me Now" even has the bonus of a new peak. Next I have to talk about Eurovision. It's not on for ages, but it's getting some extremely non-seasonal interest as Australia just held a vote to decide who will represent us at Eurovision this year. If you are not across this news, then I can tell you that it's going to be Kate Miller-Heidke, who you might best recall for her monster hit single "The Last Day On Earth" which is about 10 years old at this point and don't mind me I'm crumbling into dust. That's new at #7, but also not far behind her is Australia's best performing Eurovision entry to date, Dami Im's "Sound Of Silence", scoring a new peak. Kate also has a debut for "Caught In The Crowd" lower down, and Sheppard have a big return for "Geronimo" despite not actually winning the bid. Pointless recently had David Hasselhoff as an answer to a question, The Ted Mulry Gang chart for the first time with "Jump In My Car", feel free to link these facts together. The only other debuts to mention are also pretty vintage, as we have a long awaited ascension for "Baker Street", and also Nilsson is in with a song of his I've never heard of. Julia Michaels continues to climb the chart with "Issues" and Fleetwood Mac sneak another new peak for "Everywhere" which I'm seeing the cover ad a lot more of lately. Something mostly interesting for me is that Norah Jones returns to the chart with "Don't Know Why", a song that has been permanently lodged as the 2nd lowest song on my all time points system because of the alphabet and because it spent one week at #100 a long time ago. In fact it spent well over a year at the very bottom of that list, only briefly 'overtaken' by The Screaming Jets before they charted again, and most recently "Xanadu" sits at the bottom of that list. With a massive new peak of #97, she now ties Demi Lovato's "Confident" as the lowest scoring song that has charted for more than a week.

I'd put more into this but I also have to write for the other thread that has a similar nickname to this one so. Anyway breaking news people like Queen and also I think the movie is out for home release now so here comes another wave of it, 9 of the top 11 songs are from Queen. "Radio Ga Ga" gets a new #2 peak despite never re-entering the ARIA Chart last year and "Don't Stop Me Now" also hits a new peak of #3. New peak of #10 for "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" at #10 and for "Love Of My Life" at #11. Naturally they've stopped several new peaks behind them, though the two non-Queen songs in the top 10 are the top two from last week so that wouldn't change. If not for all the Queen songs though, Rage Against The Machine would have a new career high on this chart as "Killing In The Name"'s #4 peak would be bested by "Bulls On Parade". The reason that is here is because Denzel Curry covered it and basically went sicko mode, which as we know is this generation's "Bohemian Rhapsody" so the original Rage song is mixed in with all the Queen. Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now" debuts thanks to The Umbrella Academy. The next two debuts are Nickelback because they're currently in the country, the bubbling under chart is absolutely swarming with them. Woodkid's dramatic commercial favourite "Run Boy Run" is also a new entry. A few weeks after their first entry, Savage Garden get a second as "Truly, Madly, Deeply" finally reaches the high mountain of the top 100, while Steve Winwood gets "Higher Love" into the main chart for the first time. Petit Biscuit's also a new entry with "Sunset Lover" which is very surprising to me but maybe it's on an ad. Also I just want to point out that the trailer to the "Yesterday" movie featuring all manner of Beatles tracks came out last week. None of them are in this chart, but Coldplay's "Fix You" re-enters at #100, so maybe we're already living in that world.

Hey so, you might not realise but LivePopBars which is my source for this chart has not been working properly for close to a week. It's unable to pull any lower than about #170 whereas it usually goes to #1500. Given how low I go for this chart...that's a problem, admittedly one that I've been fearing for a long time. Honestly I'm amazed top 1500 data was so readily available for so long.

But I really like making this chart. I get excited every Sunday to see the new history that's written into the chart. I don't want to be so beholden to one sketchy source and have to abort if it goes south. Because of this, I've decided to change things up, somewhat drastically, by including streaming data. I'll explain it further tomorrow, but I intend to use top 200 data from iTunes AND Spotify, evolving into a hybrid chart which will not abandon the strong sellers we've known on this chart, but will now include another big handful of songs who pull numbers which compared to this chart are gigantic.

It'll be messy, but this has been my project for almost three and a half years and I'm ready to evolve it further.
I thought that LivePopBars wasn't working well only with me lol. Didn't know it was a "general glitch" but it may be only be temporary.

It's great that you will include streaming into your catalogue chart. It will enable it to be more relevant IMO. Will it still be a Top 100 though given Spotify is "just" a Top 200?

Looking forward to the new chart
Yeah, the relevance thing was key to me. It's always so frustrating when you have songs like "ocean eyes", "Closer", "Say You Won't Let Go" etc amassing like half a million streams in a week, but barely scraping this chart because they're just not relevant to an admittedly much smaller market. Also a bonus is that I can use the weekly Spotify chart so it's less about whatever just randomly happens to be high up at the moment I hit refresh on the page.

It shall be a top 100 still, but since most weeks have nowhere near enough eligible songs, there will be some new flexibility in those terms and you'll be seeing a lot of songs tomorrow that were not due for this chart for quite some time. In that sense it's going a little against the old rules but I think it'll be more fun.
Good to see.

I listen to a lot of eligible tracks for this chart but on Spotify. Even Apple is putting more focus on Apple Music than on iTunes.

Be good if ARIA would put out a catalogue songs chart but I appreciate your hard work on this and other projects.
Feb 24th

I've got new rules, I count em:

1. The chart will now include data from the latest weekly Spotify chart (which tracks from Friday 9 days before the chart date to Thursday 3 days before the chart date) and whatever the iTunes top 200 is when I look it up on Sunday afternoon (though I did today's late last night because I wasn't sure how long it would take me)
2. The chart will consistently be 100 songs. This will consist of any song that is older than 2 years sitting on the iTunes top 200, and the rest of the chart will consist of the oldest songs on the Spotify top 200 (which will very likely include songs that are not 2 years old yet)
3. Once the 100 songs have been deduced, they are ordered by their position on their respective charts (ties will go in favour of the Spotify chart)
4. If a song is on both charts, it will be ranked based on the higher of the two positions (provided that the song is at least 2 years old)
5. Given the varying amount of space left over for Spotify entries, it should be expected that more newly entering songs may pop in and out of the chart for a while, but it can be assumed they will eventually settle in place
6. The bubbling under chart will continue, but it will now include the 20 songs on the Spotify chart which are next in line to debut. It probably won't be an overly interesting chart component but it will be helpful for me to remember release dates. Just like before, songs that have made the main chart will be excluded from the Bubbling Under chart (eg if they're subject to rule 5)
7. I won't include #100's raw position as I once did, as it's rather redundant, I will try to remember to note what the iTunes vs. Spotify split is on each chart

Now onto this week's chart:

This was quite an unfortunate week to have to bring in this change because the pure iTunes chart underwent quite a bit of interesting activity. We've got Queen riding a new wave not just centered around "Bohemian Rhapsody" (song) to the point that "Radio Ga Ga" would otherwise be #1 this week. Hilltop Hoods have also released a new album and would have seen big new peaks across the board (though they do score a debut for "Chase That Feeling"), and of course, The Monkees' Peter Tork passed away, giving the band their first ever entries here. On top of that, there were newly eligible songs by the way of The Chainsmokers & Coldplay's "Something Just Like This", and Billie Eilish's "bellyache". The latter is actually currently on the ARIA Chart but only makes this chart via its Spotify position (as an extension to what I was saying last night). Eminem is also currently touring and is doing strongly on both charts, but it's the iTunes positions in particularly helping him here. Despite the handicap, "The Real Slim Shady" manages a new peak in its 90th week while "Cinderella Man" and "Stan" both make their debut. Red Hot Chili Peppers are also in the country and get a debut for "Dark Necessities".

Because of the Spotify chart however, there are big developments via the many songs crashing into the chart for the first time. The entire top 3 are new, as the 3 songs that crept into eligibility while boasting top 50 positions. George Ezra's former #1 "Budapest" drops out, but he has a new one this week with "Shotgun", a song which is still being helped by its inclusion on Hot Hits Australia so maybe it could be short lived. Loud Luxury's "Body" is aided by being one of those songs that because a hit long after its release (as it came out in 2017), and in a similar sense, Ocean Alley's "Confidence" is still riding the Hottest 100 wave despite being over a year old at this point. There are far too many debuts to mention but among the biggest beneficiaries are Post Malone & XXXTENTACION. Also it seems appropriate that with the old Bubbling Under format retired, we sneak in a debut for the longest runner ever on that chart, which has been in the Spotify top 200 for about a full year now (except during Christmas), Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours". The newest song on the chart is Drake's "Nice For What", released on 06/04/2018.

Quite a difference as a result of a change of formula. It freshens things up a bit.
You've chosen a good formula .

Agreed with Keith that it freshens things up.
My only fear is that it'll take a while for me to get in a good groove of it, my spreadsheet is a mess of numbers

Forgot to mention, in terms of release dates, ties are broken by Spotify position where higher songs get preference. I'll try to remember to note when the newest song on the chart & the oldest song not on the chart have the same release date, which I assume will happen often though it didn't this week.
Mar 3rd

As I noted last week, a good chunk of movement on this list will be based on how much space is left for Spotify after iTunes has its share. What I didn't expect from this is just how much of the iTunes chart would be eligible this week. A couple years ago I was used to #200 being roughly #30 on this chart. In what might be a record excluding maybe an obituary week or two, there were about 60 eligible songs on the iTunes chart (a handful are higher on Spotify, including "Bohemian Rhapsody", "ocean eyes" and "Closer"), so a bunch of the songs that got an easy ride last week are now finding it interrupted. Most notably, last week's #1 "Shotgun" has been bumped off the list completely. Last week's newest song was "Nice For What" with an 06/04/2018 release date, but this time we go back to "SAD!" on 03/03/2018. XXXTENTACION actually released that and "changes" together but with "SAD!" being the higher of the two it gets preference. The beneficiary of all of this is Loud Luxury who hit #1 with "Body". With an October 2017 release, it's probably safe from being bumped off the list. Their lead is not especially secure though, as Ocean Alley are only 3 places behind them on Spotify. Aside from those two, the only other new peak in the top 10 this week is Sheck Wes's "Mo Bamba". In the mean time this might be the most Queen content you see on the chart ever again, with this chart coming after the Academy Awards, though I am seeing a lot of ads for the home release so they're probably not going away quickly. In other iTunes news, we've got the highest debut of the week from Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles" which was previously a bubbling under entry, I don't know if White Chicks was recently on TV. To my surprise, Petit Biscuit makes a big return far outweighing his performance back when it was an iTunes only chart. Something I do know is on an ad is "California Dreamin'" which I never realised hadn't charted before. I also think "Feel It Still" has been utilised by Dancing With The Stars, which is convenient because it just became eligible today. Also eligible today is Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" which means it can transfer from Spotify to iTunes with a big boost to #21.

Because the Spotify quota dropped this week, and the Bubbling Under chart cannot include songs that have made the main chart before, it's almost completely unchanged from last week. The only difference is that YNW Melly has overtaken Mallrat by gaining a higher position than her, and Amy Shark's "I Said Hi" has had the first of I imagine many cases of retirony as it drops out of the Spotify chart, meaning Dynoro's next in line to take her spot at the bottom of the list. With Queen and Eminem perhaps cooling down next week, maybe we'll see some of these songs on the main chart soon.

Mar 10th

The battle for #1 continues to be quite close. Loud Luxury and Ocean Alley have been 3 positions apart for the past 3 weeks but momentum has swayed a little more towards Ocean Alley lately. Not enough to change things here, but maybe next week. Just barely slipping back into the chart is George Ezra, as "Shotgun" is the newest song on this week's chart (23/03/2018), however having finally been removed from Hot Hits Australia, its streaming numbers have declined a bit, so he likely won't be able to challenge for #1 anymore. As an aside, George Ezra also has the oldest song not on the chart, with "Hold My Girl" released alongside it on his 2nd album (on the same day as Shawn Mendes's "Lost In Japan" which also misses out again). Though this week has the biggest Spotify share to date, the cut off is sooner than two weeks ago, possibly because Hilltop Hoods, Eminem & Ariana Grande songs have been opening up more space for them. Also possibly helped by this are some additional new entries from the Spotify chart from Pnau & Offset. The iTunes chart continues to showcase the same Queen songs over and over again (although several of them were propelled by their Spotify positions this week), but it is partially interrupted by several debuts from The Prodigy, in reaction to Keith Flint passing away. All of their new entries come from "The Fat Of The Land" which is when Keith emerged prominently as a vocalist and face of the group. Falling out of the top 200 just today was the Pendulum remix of "Voodoo People" which I don't think he had any input in. There's a similar '90s flair to the entries this week too, presumably because of International Women's Day which was on Friday. Former Bubbling Under tracks "Celebrity Skin" and "Just A Girl" enter for the first time. The only other debuts this week come from the Jonas Brothers in lieu of their new hit single, which has made many people think of "Burnin' Up" and "Lovebug" for the first time in years, not me though because I heard the former when I was out about a month ago. In the world of new peaks, Sheck Wes continues to climb despite falling on Spotify, while Juice WRLD & Post Malone get into the top 10 for the first time with their 2017 releases. Petit Biscuit continues to climb high with "Sunset Lover" now in the top 20, and James Arthur's long runner "Say You Won't Let Go" is aided by persistent streams and hits the top 30 for the first time.

Because we're still yet to dip further forward than the first chart, the Bubbling Under chart continues to look very similar to before. Childish Gambino drops out after an extended end of year/Hottest 100 boost, but we don't get to see any further newer entries as he's instead replaced by Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa. Surprisingly, "One Kiss" dropped entirely out of the Spotify top 200 about 10 months after release, but it's returned now and enters at #1 as it is slightly older than "Youngblood". Incidentally, "Youngblood" has also been overtaken in terms of being the highest charting song on the Bubbling Under, as YNW Melly has moved up quickly and would be #1 if he made it onto the main chart currently.

Mar 17th

I have been watching the Spotify battle for literal days! As it has been trending since last week, Loud Luxury have faltered a bit meaning that for the 2nd time, they've missed out on the top spot here because their opposition has an unfair advantage through Hot Hits Australia. Nonetheless, Ocean Alley score a #1 peak with "Confidence", which looks reasonably unchallenged unless the eligibility window gets wider. At the moment the opposite is happening, and George Ezra has been booted from the chart again. Ocean Alley take his role with the newest song on the chart this week, but not with "Confidence" but "Knees" (09/03/2018). If "Knees" had fallen out of the top 200 (which it has been close to doing so), then XXXTENTACION would have all 3 of the newest songs. Instead, "Moonlight" is along with "Shotgun" as the only 2 songs voided from last week's chart. Most Spotify entries this week were climbing, so there are far too many new peaks to mention. Most notable is Juice WRLD climbing to #4 with "Lucid Dreams", seemingly due to his new album but he didn't really move on the chart, while Petit Biscuit continues to ride very high just on sales with "Sunset Lover" now #8 (it would be #3 iTunes only). Ed Sheeran has another big move with "Perfect" sitting just outside of the top 10, while James Arthur continues to climb for the 4th week in a row with "Say You Won't Let Go" now at #28. I have belatedly realised that the real reason for Hole & No Doubt's debuts last week is their inclusion in Captain Marvel. No Doubt have climbed this week, but from the same soundtrack, Nirvana's "Come As You Are" has finally debuted after a long run bubbling under. Luke Combs has been touring recently resulting in a re-entry for "Hurricane", and tangentially the only other debuts this week come from Thomas Rhett & Florida Georgia Line. Metallica's Australian tour also went on sale recently, resulting in their best week since their last album came out. However, only "The Unforgiven" can score a new peak.

We're still waiting to see a song be promoted from the new Bubbling Under chart and the only victim we had this week was last week's #1 debut from Calvin Harris. Amy Shark & Childish Gambino aren't returning at the moment so everything shifts up a spot, which for Tyga through to Dynoro are new peaks. This vacates a new position, and because he released the song in the middle of the week instead of a Friday like most artists, Ruel gets his first ever entry with "Younger". Ruel was just shy of his 13th birthday when I started this chart.

(Edit: a week later due to a mistake I have realised that Selena Gomez's "Back To You" should be on the chart, so Ruel has not actually charted yet).

A bit shocked that Come As You Are only enters this week.
16 weeks on the Bubbling Under chart haha. I feel like until now it's never had the proper spotlight as even in most of those weeks, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is usually ahead of it anyway.

Was unlucky to not enter last week actually. I saw it in the top 200 the night before I made the chart that week.
Mar 24th

We are somewhat stuck in limbo at the moment. Ocean Alley & Loud Luxury retain the top 2 slots though with gradual declines on the Spotify chart. Meanwhile the chart cut off isn't making any progress so 5 Seconds Of Summer still aren't able to reach what feels like a destined #1 debut. In fact in a glorious coincidence, the cut off for this week is identical to last week, meaning that Ocean Alley's "Knees" (09/03/2018) is the newest song on the chart, and XXXTENTACION's "Moonlight" just misses the chart again. But maybe we could have competition for #1 on the iTunes chart because Petit Biscuit continues his miraculous ascent with "Sunset Lover" now up to #3, the highest iTunes song. Also making waves this week is Motley Crue. Prior to this week, their song "Kickstart My Heart" was a semi-regular Bubbling Under entry. Now thanks to a new Netflix documentary about the band, it's a massive new entry at #5, with "Home Sweet Home" lower down as well. For reasons I have less certainty on, Meat Loaf has a massive new peak for "I'd Do Anything For Love" which re-entered last week but now enters the top 10. Also a new top 10 hit is Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" on a strong iTunes performance. In similar territory, James Arthur has climbed slightly yet again for a new peak. From a similar era to Motley Crue are two more debuts, this time for Toni Childs. Prior to this week she had a brief Bubbling Under entry for "I've Got To Go Now". Now that and "Stop Your Fussin'" crack the main chart following news of her announcing an Australian tour. In an interesting turn of events, all of the bottom 10 except for "Happy" are from the Spotify chart, which might suggest some instability with a Billie Eilish album on the way, but in this brief lull period, J. Cole is able to return for his extremely slow burning hit "No Role Modelz".

For the Bubbling Under chart, absolutely nothing changes. I do however have to admit to a mistake on last week's chart. Selena Gomez re-entered the top 200 with "Back To You" and I overlooked this despite its May 2018 release. It should have been #9 on last week's chart which means that Ruel never should have debuted in the first place. Naturally, Selena is most at risk of this top 20 to fall out of the chart, while The Rubens & Tiesto are also starting to slip closer to the edge. Keep in mind too that there are about 7 songs between "Knees" and "Youngblood" which aren't on the Bubbling Under chart because they entered the main chart before on softer eligibility standards, so there could be a fair bit longer before we see any promotions still.

I have heard "I Would Do Anything For Love" in a McDonalds ad.

Mar 31th

I had a silly theory regarding this week's chart. While iTunes generally skews older, there's no way that 17 year old Billie Eilish's new album wasn't going to cause an impact. Perhaps she brought along a bunch of younger iTunes users who aren't just logging on to purchase AC/DC's hypothetical greatest hits EP. I can't say for certain, and in fact it could instead be the result of a massive influx of recent country singles, but the iTunes representation is considerably lower than usual, which gives more space to Spotify songs. More space means more flexible cut off, more flexible cut off means that 5 Seconds Of Summer finally are promoted to the main chart with "Youngblood" and are of course at #1. "Youngblood" has a tendency to seem frozen in place on the Spotify chart so they could be sticking around for a while, as none of the Bubbling Under top 10 are higher than them on Spotify. In fact on the latest daily chart, it's the only song in this top 100 that's hanging around in the top 50. Billie Eilish's entire album is ahead of it currently, but that couldn't bump it out, instead it bumped out Loud Luxury, Ocean Alley and...Billie Eilish's other older single that isn't on the album. Because of the extra space, not just 5 Seconds Of Summer, but the entire Bubbling Under top 5 have debuted (and all the interim entries have returned), which of course includes "lovely", which as of this week has spent more time in the #41-#50 section of the ARIA chart (21 weeks) than it has in the top 40 (20 weeks). Anne-Marie is the next highest beneficiary, with the baffling longevity of "2002" on the Spotify chart seeing it in at #8. Ariana Grande's less enduring pop anthem "no tears left to cry" was released on the same day (it's also the newest song here with a 20/04/2018 release date, nice) and enters at #34, while The Rubens get their 3rd ever entry courtesy of "Never Ever", which might not have much longer to last on the chart incidentally. Of those returning entries, George Ezra fairs the best as "Hold My Girl" has made considerable upward progress since it first appeared. Back to Billie though, she has a fascinatingly level success across platforms, with "ocean eyes" and "bellyache" being a bit higher on iTunes and thus represented by those ranks, but the latter would be safely scoring a new peak even with its Spotify position. The rest of her EP is not old enough (just a few months away) and has to rely on Spotify ranks, which sees "idontwannabeyouanymore" take a big jump, and there's also a debut for "my boy" right near the bottom. The most noteworthy Spotify new peak is probably James Arthur because "Say You Won't Let Go" just won't stop barely climbing, now up to #26. The rest of the use is iTunes bound. Cat Stevens gets a big return for "Peace Train" at a new peak and Motley Crue sub out one of their debuts from last week for another.

Because the threshold has finally been broken, this week's Bubbling Under chart is the most exciting it's ever been. We have a new #1 courtesy of Post Malone's "Better Now", which could make a serious dent as it would be #5 this week if eligible. Apart from Selena Gomez who has dropped out yet again, the rest of last week's chart move quite a bit up the line. Following all those are the fresh blood that are definitely all entering for the first time. It's a bit of an Australian affair courtesy of Ruel, Morgan Evans & Dean Lewis. Morgan is pretty much just here because he's still on Hot Hits Australia and will promptly vanish from the top 200 as soon as that's over, while Dean is considerably ahead of everything else this week thanks to his album release which could make for a future #1 hit here. As we trek all the way through June, we've hit the release date of Drake's "Scorpion", which aside from the pre-release singles, still houses two entries in the top 200 with "In My Feelings" and "Nonstop", notably the album was released on the same day as "Be Alright" but I don't see him queue jumping any time soon. Lastly we jump two weeks into July and hit benny blanco's insanely long-lasting "Eastside" which has spent the last 36 weeks in the ARIA top 20. Hopefully for his sake he hasn't completely blown his load in the weeks before he becomes eligible for the main chart, although it might make for a fun fact to include in his next video if so.

Apr 7th

To say it was a close affair at the top of this week's chart doesn't quite cover how close it was. Billie Eilish released her album last week which inevitably gave a slight boost to her in general. None of her album tracks where eligible yet but everything else was fair game. Notably "lovely" which entered last week. The tangential boost it scored was enough to put it 1 place ahead of "Youngblood" on the weekly Spotify chart. But the real reason this was close is because "lovely" almost didn't make the chart at all. With a slight boost in iTunes representation this week, the cut off has been shifted back a little from last week's very liberal week. Anne-Marie & Ariana Grande have been shifted back out of the chart, but the other 3 debuts from last week have survived, which if you've done the maths or just remember how the Bubbling Under chart looks, it means that "lovely" with its 19/04/2019 release date is the newest song on the chart this week, and just so happens to be #1. Billie Eilish also climbed to new peaks with "idontwannabeyouanymore" and "my boy", but the real extent of her impact was pushing back almost every song on Spotify down about 10 places to make room for her. This would be more pronounced if the upper end on iTunes wasn't bereft of eligible songs though, the highest this week is only #6, but it's a debut courtesy of Moana which I've been overhearing a lot of ads for lately. There's been some dispute over what the most popular song on the soundtrack is lately, and incidentally it's the popular chart hit that doesn't figure in the top 2. In keeping with iTunes trends I've been seeing for years, the next highest after Auli'i is actually Dwayne Johnson's "You're Welcome", which I believe makes him the first WWE star to ever make this chart. Below them, then we have Alessia Cara's obligatory supposedly friendly for mass audience even though once playlists stopped doing their deed, more and more people would rather hear Auli'i's version. Aside from Billie there are just 2 other new peaks this week. James Arthur continues to absurdly make the slowest consistent crawl up the chart, now #25, having moved up from #52 in 7 consecutive weeks of gains. Incidentally he dropped on the Spotify chart this week. The other new peak is Jason Mraz because I guess it was just one of those weeks on Spotify. The Spotify chart also brings back Train's "Hey, Soul Sister" for reasons I can't fathom, and maybe slightly less randomly, Kygo's now year old single "Remind Me To Forget", which had not been in the top 200 since January. This week also provides one more debut and it's by far the strangest one. Vietnamese Voice contestant Đồng Lan (she made the top 8 in 2012) had two adjacent singles on the iTunes chart this week which tends to be suspicious. Both of those singles were released in 2018, but one of them, "Sợ Chết" is to my ears completely identical to a rendition of the same song she released about 6 years ago. I have no idea if this is another one of those random iTunes spam buying things because it's hard to find anything written about her in English, but it sounded pretty good to me I guess.

The Bubbling Under chart is a little less eventful this time around. We lose "Jackie Chan" which is no issue to Post Malone probably but might be for everyone else on the track because they do not have anything else to represent themselves. This lets most of the chart inch closer, though Dynoro having been removed from Hot Hits Australia is now at risk of falling behind Ruel who released on the same day. Dueling songs of the same age is however especially relevant this week because the vacancy gave us a new entry, and there were 2 songs of note released on July 18th. On almost every single week ever, KIAN's never-ceasing playlist bolstered hit "Waiting" would be in the front seat. However this is the week Billie Eilish released her album, and it just so happens to contain the 9 month old single "you should see me in a crown", and the massive boost for that song because of this is enough to make it debut ahead of KIAN, who is usually impatient but for Billie I'm sure he's happy to wait.

Not long after the previous one, we've had another big Spotify splash courtesy of a lacking iTunes chart. That may be because of many slots being taken by new BTS songs and another suspicious selection of clogging entries from an artist with 1 monthly listener on Spotify, because the sales chart is the real chart. Nonetheless it doesn't change the top standings. A bizarre instance of Billie Eilish's Spotify dominance is that "lovely" was pushed out of the top 50 by her new album, but with most of them out of the way, it returned to the top 50 later on and thus actually got more streams this week. Then again it might help that Khalid returned the favour with his album out this week, but then the other song featuring him here dropped hard. Anyway, there are 5 new entries from the Bubbling Under set this week, and the biggest entry is of course Post Malone's "Better Now". Aside from "rockstar" and "Psycho", it's the only song from his 2nd album's big chart attack that has survived a year later. It enters at #3. The other big debut this week comes not from Spotify, but iTunes. Brett Young recently appeared here with "In Case You Didn't Know". He's gone far higher with what was actually the highest eligible song on iTunes, "Mercy" from the same album. The other iTunes debuts are considerably more cursed with lovelytheband sexualising mental illness and whatever is going on with that Andy Grammer song. To go back to the Spotify debuts, this chart is officially anti-ARIA because Tyga's ACTUALLY VERY POPULAR HIT SONG "Taste" is new in at #16, and for that matter is the newest song with its 16/05/2018 release date. The other entries are much lower and may be at risk of short chart runs. Jess Glynne yodels her way in with "I'll Be There" (which actually dropped a lot this week, it's usually way higher), and we have two local entries from Hayden James & Peking Duk, the latter effectively replacing The Rubens' song which dropped out this week. Otherwise there are 3 new peaks this week. Post Malone's "Congratulations" seemed to benefit from a 2016 heavy TBT playlist on Thursday which might have helped it take a decent jump, while Norah Jones benefitted from doing some promo, returning both of the two songs you expect in, with "Don't Know Why" making a noted improvement on its first two very low weeks. The other new peak is Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit In The Sky" which leaps back into the chart in the top 40, much higher than it's ever been before.

5 promoted songs from Bubbling Under means a decent amount of action here now. Panic! At The Disco move into the top spot after being only #13 3 weeks ago. Alec Benjamin is definitely one to keep an eye on at #2 because his song is actually still climbing on Spotify now, and is sitting around the top 50. The after effects of being removed from HHA means Dynoro is getting close to being overtaken by Ruel but he's safe for now, speaking of which Morgan Evans was just removed from it so this may be his last appearance as he sneaks in at #10. After snatching the debut last week, Billie Eilish expectedly falls behind KIAN who gets to debut at #15 with "Waiting". The next highest debut is Bazzi's "Beautiful" as re-made with Camila Cabello, which has gotten very close to leaving the top 200 in recent weeks but maybe his new song is pulling it back up. The other entries look far more likely to be future debuts as they're on a much greater scale of hit. Noted copyright coward Travis Scott enters with his instant hit "SICKO MODE" which has been in the top 50 on Spotify for pretty much every day since release, the same could be said of Marshmello's "Happier" which is showing considerably strong longevity for his standards. It was actually released on the same day as Ava Max's "Sweet But Psycho" which took a bit longer to hit the charts but is still quite a way behind him. Nonetheless she can take solace that her streaming heights are still helping them, because Calvin Harris's "Promises" was also released on the same day and just misses the cut on this chart.

Apr 21st

This week felt like another hurrah for old music, on both charts incidentally. It also faced a curious prospect, where only under a very specific cut off would Billie Eilish not be #1 on the chart. That being if there were 57 Spotify tracks on the chart, such that "lovely" is booted off the chart and "Youngblood" isn't (okay if there were 78 or more then Benny Blanco would be #1 instead but let's be practical). For the first time since I re-jigged this chart, we have a 3 week running #1 hit as "lovely" still continues to hold off 5SOS. These two songs were all that was holding off the chance of an iTunes-influenced #1 as "ocean eyes" has had a really strong performance this week returning to its #3 peak. Also seemingly never running out of buyers is "Perfect" which now moves into the top 5. Nonetheless, a cut off almost a month earlier than last week ("2002" is the newest song here with its 20/04/2018 release, meaning everything here is at least a year old) leaves some songs pushed off the chart and so there's a general trend upwards this week. It also helps for Spotify charters that Billie Eilish & Khalid (not together) have their album tracks falling off the chart and so almost everything else is moving up. This of course means that James Arthur gets another new peak, fret not he can only do this at most 22 more times, and Khalid also hits a new peak with "Young Dumb & Broke". He's had some confusing circumstances I don't quite understand, for instance "Talk" climbed higher the week after his album came out than the week of, and also "Location" sneaks in for the first time this week. Thanks to an ad, Andy Grammer's debut from last week takes a big jump of 52 places to #31, while the iTunes chart also nets us a newly eligible entry from Shawn Mendes, whose "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back" is always on an ad, or at least feels like it has been for a year. Perhaps the biggest news of the week is Beyonce's new live album. When she performed at Coachella last year, it was terribly timed for this chart and didn't really net much in the way of impact. It's a bit different this time around and we've been treated to four debuts from "Lemonade": "Formation", "Hold Up", "Sorry" and "Freedom". The general public also seems to disagree strongly with the ARIA Logo game because they've rallied behind Southern Sons enough to get them their first ever entry with "Heart In Danger".

The top of the Bubbling Under chart is stagnant as the new chart puts these songs further away from entering. "Rise" stands only about 20,000 streams ahead of "Praise The Lord (Da Shine)" but they'll probably reach the chart before that ever changes order. Dynoro has also slowed down his descent and instead it's Ruel who needs to be careful as he's seeing some harsh drops lately and is close to leaving the chart. As noted last week, "Day Drunk" has vanished probably forever from the chart so we have a new vacancy to fill in, two in fact because Bazzi's "Beautiful" also slipped out, though that could easily return as his new single is gaining traction. For the time being though, we have two new arrivals. Firstly the obvious from Calvin Harris who only missed out last week on a tiebreaker, and then unfortunately the worst band in the world, who despite taking a pretty hefty loss this week, are still reasonably ahead of Kanye West & Lil Pump's song that was released on the same day.

Apr 28th

It's a peculiar week. The iTunes/Spotify ratio has actually not changed, but the content has changed a decent amount. A bunch of curious factors have lowered the Spotify numbers a noticeable amount this past week, which I choose to believe is a combination of Easter, Game of Thrones & Avengers. Losing out the most from this seems to be new music because Spotify's lower end has become inundated with oldies. The by-product of this is that the cut off has been tighter than ever before, in terms of both age and the chronological stop gap. Another way to read that is that it's gotten so rough that some songs that have been safely on the chart for over 2 months have been booted off this week. The newest song is now "Confidence" which was released on 06/02/2018, 11 songs have been booted off the chart this week, which includes last week's top two. "lovely" was the only song that could potentially get in the way of this week's #1, which for the first time since I started adding Spotify data, is actually a song on the iTunes chart. Because there are 5 bands in Australia that people have heard of, this is the second time in just this thread that I can report that Birds of Tokyo's "Lanterns" is at #1 because they played at a sporting event. It's a bigger overall effect however this time because they also bring back "Plans" and "I'd Go With You Anywhere" to new peaks. Though Billie's #1 was kicked off the chart for this week, she's still riding high on iTunes with "ocean eyes" which hits a new peak of #2. Really a lot of this week's impact comes from the absence of so many of those previous top 10 songs, as everything slides up in their place. Post Malone hits a new peak with "rockstar" at #6, and Redgum are also assisted by lack of competition to take "I Was Only 19" to its first time ever in the top 10 at #4, because ANZAC Day was this past week. This shift also brings a lot of slight new peaks for Lauv, Andy Grammer, Billie Eilish, James Arthur (yet again!), Khalid, The Chainsmokers, Bebe Rexha, Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons, Journey, Post Malone & Jason Mraz. Actually "Thunder" became iTunes eligible this week but it just so happens to be a rare week that it's higher on Spotify anyway. It may climb a lot in the near future. In the good chunk of Spotify re-entries, most of note is a new peak for Lynyrd Skynyrd, and this week's only debut, with Tame Impala getting their first ever chart entry with "The Less I Know The Better". F**k Trevor.

Unsurprisingly, nothing happens on the Bubbling Under chart. Alec Benjamin has started to decline but he's probably safe from getting overtaken by Jonas Blue & A$AP Rocky. Drake's "Nonstop" is getting very close to dropping out of the top 200 however.

May 5th

Evidently I've been busy today so I only just now had time to finish typing up the chart I prepared 11 hours ago. Despite little change in the chart distribution on the surface, there is a major change overall as Spotify rewinds from last week's oldies chaos. All those songs that were kicked out in the last fortnight? They're back (okay well Peking Duk's "Fire" has fallen out so that isn't), but at the same time, a changed distribution means that most songs have been pushed down to accommodate the particularly high re-entries. Billie Eilish still benefits however because she's sitting at the top of the chart for a 4th week now with "lovely". The double-edged sword of this however is that she prevents herself scoring another #1 hit as "ocean eyes" climbs to the top of the iTunes pile and holds here at #2. She also scores a new peak a little lower with "bellyache" now at #11, this is all largely thanks to her Australian tour. Also touring the country is Post Malone and he's impressed in his own way as he takes 4 of the top 10. "Better Now" doesn't score a new peak though it does manage to overtake 5 Seconds Of Summer which I thought might have been out of reach ("Better Now" also booted "Youngblood" from the Spotify top 50 so if it takes another hit next week, he's to blame). "rockstar" climbs to a new peak of #5 and "Psycho" also sneaks into the top 10 at #10. They're not the only artists getting noteworthy action in the top 10, as we have the power of memes giving Lizzo a very belated hit with "Truth Hurts". It must have been close to last week's chart, but it just means that she gets to debut all the way up at #7. She's just cracked the top 50 on Spotify so she could give a run for #1 with her 2017 single. Not far from the top 10, but perhaps prone to struggle getting there, are the two new entries who benefit from a fresher Spotify chart. You should be familiar as they've been riding on the Bubbling Under chart for 10 straight weeks. Panic! At The Disco of course enter with "High Hopes", being the huge hit that it has been. Maybe less obvious is Alec Benjamin whose "Let Me Down Slowly" was a minor hit about a year ago, but he's since signed to a bigger label who have given it another chance and...it's missed the ARIA top 50 again. In fact it's totally on the way out which given its very playlist influenced success could mean a brief run, but then again look how high Lauv is in the chart a good year after the fact. In a week where the "Guardians Of The Galaxy" soundtrack plummeted in the chart due to an impromptu ARIA decision, the slack is being picked up here as we are flooded by it. Aside from Blue Swede, Rupert Holmes & Electric Light Orchestra, we have a big new peak for Redbone, while 10cc's "I'm Not In Love" gets its first ever entry (not even a prior bubbler), good thing I conveniently looked at the soundtrack tracklisting yesterday. James Arthur actually doesn't get a new peak even though he's climbed again on Spotify. Doing that instead is Imagine Dragons who subtlely transfer over to iTunes with "Thunder", and also Post Malone's "Congratulations". On the topic of him, what I imagine must have been sitting closely outside of the top 200 prior, "Candy Paint" gets a belated debut. There are former bubblers in the debuts however, courtesy of Laura Branigan's "Gloria", and Tommy James' original recording of "Crimson and Clover".

With two songs graduating, you might expect that there are two new songs to greet us at the bottom of the chart. Not true this time around. Assumably in anticipation that we need to meet a Panic! quota on this chart, the latest single from their latest album, "Hey Look Ma, I Made It" was added to Hot Hits Australia, which is somewhat rare for a late album single that hasn't been remixed or anything. It gives Panic! a free ride into the top 10, which is now being led by Jonas Blue & A$AP Rocky who still haven't caught back up to Alec Benjamin on the chart. There is however something to report in this manner. Despite seemingly taking the HHA removal okay, Dynoro has had a heavy hit this week and Ruel has done the complete opposite, and so they've been swapped this week. If Dynoro keeps this up he may miss out on reaching the main chart. He's in a better place than Drake though whose "Nonstop" just barely stayed on the chart this week ("In My Feelings" is doing fine). Also troubled is the last new entry, with Kanye West & Lil Pump's "I Love It" still getting plenty of attention while Australia sadly pays dust to "KIDS SEE GHOSTS". It might be surprising to recall that the song actually spent a while at #1 on Spotify, but it's been taking steady losses for months and I don't expect it to make it to the main chart.

May 12th

The iTunes chart kind of dropped the ball this week, or rather just had a good week in terms of new music selling better than old music. Almost the entire top 20 this week is on the Spotify chart. The only exception is what is trying to make itself a bizarre annual trend, in that there's a relative lack of definitive Mother's Day songs, but for the second year in a row the highest song on the day on iTunes is Meghan Trainor's duet with her mother, "Mom". This brings the list of #1 peakers on this chart to have only charted for 1 week back down to 3. Otherwise Billie Eilish is still benefitting from her Australian visit, though many of her entries are down this week, "lovely" still safely sits at #1. This very likely will be its last week at the top however because Lizzo's "Truth Hurts" continues to make big in-roads, now up to #2. Given that it's about 6 months older than "lovely", there's pretty much no way it can be pushed off the chart, even if we have a big jolt like 2 weeks ago. Holding a place in the top 10 for extended lengths of time may prove difficult, as George Ezra & Loud Luxury have already left, and that's without much in the way of big fresher debuts which are on the way. The big shift towards the Spotify chart this week does allow for 4 new entries from this. The highest of them is YNW Melly's "Murder On My Mind", notably not a top 50 hit because ARIA didn't decide to count it until it was too late, but here it's right in at #10. The others are much more clearly hit singles, two of them entering the ARIA top 50 the week they were released, and all of them exhibiting great longevity. Maroon 5 are the next highest with the Cardi B version of "Girls Like You", and then we've got the closely dueling pair of Jonas Blue & A$AP Rocky, released on the same day, and actually closer this week than they have been in a long time. On the Spotify front, Logic & Hayden James released new singles last week and both of them climb to new peaks this week with their older singles. Post Malone's tour also brings "Congratulations" and "Candy Paint" a bit higher, while "Go Flex" gets its belated debut also. On the topic of very fruitful 2016 albums, Ed Sheeran gets a 5th song onto the chart from his 3rd album, as "Supermarket Flowers" possibly benefits from the day of the year. He'll probably see general boosts across the board next week when Spotify catches up to his new single. On the more random side of things, Young MC returns to a new peak with "Bust A Move". For more clear reasons, US singer Ruelle makes her first appearance on the chart courtesy of "I Get To Love You" being used on the TV series Shadowhunters. Lastly to note are two more high profile debuts, as The Bangles get their first ever chart entry with "Eternal Flame", and Spice Girls potentially are adding to the #100 and out canon with their first ever song to make the main chart, "Mama".

Quite a bit of space has been vacated on the Bubbling Under chart. Mallrat is pulled up to #1 with "Groceries", the only song left from the week with 20 debuts 11 weeks ago. Benny Blanco has notably moved into the top 10 with "Eastside" which would be #1 this week if it were let onto the chart. Drake's "Nonstop" continues to be the song in the most danger even though it's up to #7 now, and it did slightly rebound on Spotify. There's no shuffling happening this week though "Love Someone" and "I Love It" are 13 places closer on the chart than they were last week. Of most note this week are the new songs brought in, and it's a cavalcade of mostly songs that have never made the ARIA Chart for whatever reason. The only exception is Khalid with "Better" which is by far the highest charting of the lot, and it's ahead of every single song on the Bubbling Under chart on Spotify except for "Eastside", which I'm sure he doesn't mind. But ahead of him is what I'm sure everyone's been expecting, the wild longevity of Lil Baby & Gunna's "Drip Too Hard", which I can't say I expect will end up making the main chart but who knows. Maybe with a better chance is Calboy's "Envy Me", which benefits from going viral after already being pretty old ("Old Town Road" is still several months away in case you were wondering). Lastly we've got Bene entering with "Soaked" because f**k you ARIA.

In entirely expected fashion, Lizzo moves to #1, with the only real question being about how long she can stay there. It didn't really affect her standings but we've had an extremely above average intake of Spotify entries, perhaps because unspecified music competition is making a notable impact but only really with newer songs. Kate Miller-Heidke does score two re-entries but both aren't as high as they were upon the initial announcement. Leading the pack of new entries on Spotify is the equal newest of the lot, Dean Lewis's "Be Alright", which would probably be a #1 under typical circumstances, though it's done well for a song that was an instant hit on release. The rest of the entries are a bit more modest in their standings. Panic! At The Disco manage to fast track into the chart with "Hey Look Ma, I Made It" in the top 30, though it doesn't seem to have much traction and could disappear as soon as playlists drop it. Mallrat's "Groceries" has managed to hold on extremely well post-Hottest 100 boost, as is the case for Ruel's "Younger". Drake now has a 3rd song on the chart with "In My Feelings", incidentally holding himself out of the chart. The last of those new entries from the Bubbling Under chart is Dynoro's "In My Mind". There is another debut on Spotify however because for reasons unknown, Hailee Steinfeld has had a huge boost (which did not cross over to her current hit). "Let Me Go" is the only song to score a new peak this week, and a little lower she also debuts with "Starving". The last debut to note is Kim Wilde's "Kids In America".

Drake's "Nonstop" reaches #1 on the Bubbling Under chart while still remaining on the cusp of being knocked out of the chart. Benny Blanco & KIAN right behind him have slightly better prospects, though with this week being something of an oddity, these songs could be stuck here for a while. "I Love It" makes the top 10 this week though has been very unstable on the chart lately. The six vacancies push the bottom of the list another month forward. Despite how quickly The Chainsmokers seem to keep moving on from new singles, "This Feeling" has managed to stick to some extent. Rita Ora's "Let You Love Me" has also had impressive longevity though it might be running out. Halsey's "Without Me" is a bit more noteworthy as it still stands in the top 50. Very unlikely to carry much further is Charli XCX's "1999", but Kodak Black has some potential with "ZEZE". Finally we have a new record for the highest charting song to appear on the Bubbling Under chart, as Dominic Fike sneaks in while "3 Nights" is #5 on the chart. It's got a long way to go, but with the international markets catching on, he's got a lot of potential.
