January 17, 2011

Highlights for January 17, 2011

“Coma Cat” sneaks up to #1 while “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” holds steady at #3.

“Invisible Light” jumps up to #4 in its sixth week on the chart. This is the 3rd single from the latest album from the Scissor Sisters.

As predicted last week, “Hold It against me” by Britney Spears, debuts at a very high position on the chart, at #41.

The Power Pick of the week goes to Hercules & Love Affair with their future hit “My House”. I am hoping this song somehow crosses over in the U.S.

I know I dream big.

Highlights for January 10, 2011

Diagram of the Heart spends a third week at #1, but “Coma Cat” & “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” are looking to take over the top spot. Can Dead Famous hold them off?

“You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” earned a Golden Globe for “Best Original Song”. Too bad Cher wasn’t at the Golden Globes. Hopefully this song will earn an Oscar nomination.

The Hot Shot Debut, “My House” brings back Hercules & Love Affair to my chart. I love this song. Anything that sounds late 80’s or early 90’s seems so fresh right now. On the opposite of love is anything that sounds like “Poker Face”. The Redone sound is getting old and starting to sound dated. Hopefully, Lady Gaga’s new album will push her into a new sound.

Next week, Britney Spears’s new single, “Hold It Against Me” should make a big splash on my chart. I’m amazed that there is little dub step in her new song. Which I believe will be the new sound of Hip-Hop in America. English Hip-Hop is miles away from American Hip-Hop at the moment.

Highlights For January 3, 2011

It’s a very good week for Diagram of the Heart, for the second week in a row “Dead Famous” is #1. Diagram of the Heart also debuts a new single, “Did I?” at #66. 

Tensnake’sComa Cat” is also the greatest gainer in airplay for a second week. The late 80’s/early 90’s house sound has made this a very unique and fun song for me.

Cher makes her 1st appearance in my top ten since 2003 with “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me”. This is the only song from the soundtrack to make my top ten.

The Hot Shot Debut of the week comes from Sarah McLeod’s cover of “Dancing in the Dark”. Since I am not a fan of Bruce Springsteen this is an already a surprise hit for me. “Dancing in the Dark” enters at #62.

Alphaville makes their 1st chart appearance in my chart with “I Die for You Today” at #100. I am huge fan of “Big in Japan” and “Forever Young” so I gave them a nod. I am not sure how this song is going to play out for me.
