What a terrible site. I get "

Uh oh. Looks like there was a problem.

We are sorry but the page you are looking for no longer exists."

Yes it does exist, just you're not bothering to serve me the page. You're purposely redirecting me to another page on your site instead of loading the one I'm asking for. Not slowly timing out but instantly directing me to that "no longer exists" page.

Plus I've picked an archived chart then gone forward and you've had a big moan of taking me to the current date and saying it doesn't exist, when I went forward a chart from a date in 1959 or whenever it was.

i’m actually kinda addicted to bass boosted versions of edm songs! it’s not a case of distortion, just a club feel.

Wap was going to number 1 sooner or later Let’s be real here, I’m not to fussed because Megan drops absolute bombs on this! Hopefully head & heart don’t go on acr :////

Still not ruling lighter out of the number 1 race as its starting to once again gain momentum with the beautiful acoustic version out.

Speaking of nathan dawe flowers just about staying in the top 40 to make it half a year in the top 40 is amazing!

I... am extremely let down here.

I think it's very apparent that the 'Head & Heart' vs 'Wap' debate on Discord was blown completely out of proportion, so it absolutely disgusts me to see the finger still being pointed instead of just moving the on & accepting the result, whether it's what you wanted or not!

Seriously, this so-called "war" is being entirely based on just ONE comment that just ONE person made (who sincerely apologised immediately afterwards & said they didn't mean it), but apparently "everyone" is to blame.

That's called generalisation! Or, to put it another way, you're basing an entire group purely based on an individual's behaviour. For example, I met a mad Iggy Azalea fan accusing me of having no knowledge of music when I said 'Black Widow' didn't age well, but I'm not going to turn around & say; "All Iggy Azalea fans are bullies.", based on only that occasion. I know this is just a music example, but it really concerns me that some people here might actually do this in real life!

All I said was that I wanted 'Head & Heart' to be #1 today! The number of times I was bombarded with "NO!" or "STREAM WAPPP" since yesterday is unlike anything I've ever seen on Discord or Disqus.

These are mainly the same people who have been praising & writing wonderful comments about my reviews that I put so much time & effort into every week without fail since April 2016, so what's so different about this particular chart?! I don't care about the occasionally troll lashing out at me for me not supporting a song they liked, but for certainly regulars on this forum to be doing that... yeah, I'll be honest, it's really ruined my evening! :/

Nothing I've done on here has changed since I joined OCC! I'm trying my best to give insightful & honest opinions of songs. They're not going to be same as yours... it is impossible to agree on everything, but there are ways of saying that rather than spamming me & laughing in my face when a song I wasn't rooting for #1 gets it! I'm sorry, but that's so immature.

In fact, you know what, I'm not sorry, because I've got nothing to be sorry for! That's what these two forums are about; to share what we think of the music in the charts & have a general relaxed conversation about it. If you can't take a different opinion to your own without mocking other people for it, then maybe this site isn't the right place for you!

To those of you who actually can have a civil debate, thank you so much! You're making OCC a very interesting & friendly community, which is the reason why I have always been proud to be an active member here. :)

Looking back through this, I really hate ranting, but if it's going to mean people thinking twice before they hit "send", then for the sake of absolutely all users who visit this thread, then I'm sure it's worth it!

Please only talk to me from now on if you can respect all music tastes, otherwise, you're probably just wasting your time.

Have a nice weekend everybody!

Remember to spread love, not hate. ;)

the finger is STILL being pointed?! :O

god gracious i’m glad i’m in the middle of a break from the server. i will admit, i kinda went a bit far, but i just wanted a new number 1. so sorry if i triggered you.

also, when i do return, i want the vibe of the server to be the same as it was before; passive, friendly and a good place to be! that’s what i always knew the server to be.

Disqus, I honestly don’t care that cremation costs are rising in my area, so please stop showing me that ad every single week!

I’m still a young lad & I’d want to be buried more than burnt anyway.

See, this is why when websites say; "We use cookies & data analytics to provide tailored ads for you.", they're actually talking a load of rubbish.

The majority of people using this site are either teenagers or in their 20's (personal information), so why are we seeing dating over 50's ads! :/

i think having songs like baby, redbone and i know you are from me streaming it a lot. usually it takes something really good to get a song that was released a few years back to re-enter and due to that one bringing back late 2018 memories for me, it did so lol.

Believe me it was hard not to be a hot 100 addict, especially when the Internet came up and the billboard site came up. Even before the Internet was up and running in America, MTV would always do a top 10 sneak peek on both charts during the week and it was still addicting 😁 But yes Beyoncé has been a very fun ride on the hot 100 for me ever since she was with Destiny’s Child

Head & Heart = 6 consecutive weeks at #1, Blinding Lights - 8 non consecutive weeks at #1. All time record for consecutive weeks at #1 in UK is 16 (Bryan Adams in 1991) Non consecutive weeks is 18 (Frankie Laine 1953) Just 6 songs in chart history have topped the chart on 3 or more occassions during the same chart run with 3 Lions (Baddiel and Skinner) achiving the feat during seperate chart runs..

avatar

Piran

Aren't 'Blinding Lights' & 'Three Lions' the only two songs to have four separate stints at #1? It depends whether you count the latter as two versions between '96 & '98 (but I don't think OCC does).

Blinding lights has had 3 stints at the top (same chart run,) whilst 3 lions 4 in total. There were 2 separate versions of this song in 1996 and 98. The original hit the top twice during the same chart run and the 98 version once. The question is was the rereleased 2018 version which also made no1 the original or the 98 version? Either way, twice is the maximum number of times the song has reclaimed top spot during the same chart run.....gasp!

WEEKLY CHART REVIEW (04/09/2020 - 10/09/2020)

🔴 (Negative)

1) I didn’t think I’d be doing this, but yeah, ‘Wap’ going to #1 is a negative point to me! I base which section I put these points on at the time of the review & right now, I’m honestly feeling really down about it. Seriously, there was a fairly heated debate on Discord last night over this song, causing one of my closest chart friends to temporarily leave the server… & all for a song that’s literally just about women’s genitalia to be the most popular song of the week? That’s disgusting! I mean, congratulations to Megan Thee Stallion at least (as she was able to provide two really impressive verses), but Cardi B adds nothing here despite this being her own song. Honestly, looking back through 2020, this might be my least favourite #1 of the year so far! :/

2) ‘Head & Heart’ falling was always going to , because it’s still on constant replay for me! The even worse part is that it might be heading for ACR next week, so it doesn’t look like it’ll ever reclaim the top spot. Still, I’m happy that this became the first original EDM #1 since October 2018!

3) Why is ‘Take You Dancing’ still moving up?! It’s both creepy & annoying.

4) BLACKPINK released their second major disappointment of the year! This one frustrates me even more than ‘How You Like That’, because at least that song had a catchy ending despite the continued annoying vocals. Also, Selena Gomez, you don’t need to lower yourself to your ex’s level by making a Part 2 of ‘Yummy’! It shocks me that this is the same group who made ‘Sour Candy’ & ‘Kiss & Make Up’. They are so much better than this garbage!

5) Taylor Swift drops out of the Top 40 on the singles chart & she’s also out of the Top 5 on the albums chart! I mean, I know the competition always starts to pick up at the beginning of autumn & she had a good run on the latter chart, but still, ‘Folklore’ deserves better.

🟠 (Mixed)

1) On one hand, I hate that BTS have fallen out of the Top 10 after just one week! On the other hand, I expected them to crash a lot further & they’re still selling well, so I guess ‘Dynamite’ might still have a chance at the Chart Of The Year after all.

2) This new Calvin Harris song might have to grow on me, partly because of how much different than usual it sounds coming from him! The Weeknd sounds amazing over this 80’s style production though, but then again, when hasn’t he?

3) Following a Twitter campaign, Nines just about sneaks in his first #1 album! I have no real opinion on him nor Metallica, so I guess I can take this, although seeing The Killers drop about 90% in overall performance from last week isn’t a promising sign. I also expected Katy Perry to debut a bit higher too, but it was an incredibly busy week!

🟢 (Positive)

1) ‘Mood’ got another huge streaming boost from TikTok to land inside the Top 5! Realistically, this song is looking the most likely to be the next new #1 & given that it’s already a personal highlight of this year in trap music for me, I’m certainly okay with that.

2) ‘Looking For Me’ is showing signs of possibly breaking the Top 10 next week! I’ve thought it was a banger from the moment I heard it, so it totally deserves to get there.

3) ‘Midnight Sky’ looks like it might stay fairly stable! I expect this to be absolutely massive on the radio too.

4) ‘Tick Tock’ was the highest climber of the week, following a considerable rise in all metrics. It might’ve lost a lot of plays for me since it debuted, but I’m still so happy to Clean Bandit back in the charts!

5) ‘You Broke Me First’ jumped up nine places! Tate McRae has a lot of potential going forward if she keeps making songs like this.

6) ‘Blinding Lights’ got a small rebound, proving that even ACR can’t kill a hit as amazing as this one!

7) ‘Rain On Me’ actually rebounded this week! Such a pleasant surprise given that I predicted it would fall out of the Top 40 last week, haha.

Thanks for reading everyone! :)

i haven’t even heard that blackpink song, but given what you’ve had to say about it and even referenced “yummy”, i have low expectations for it.

midnight sky deserves to be in the top 10, maybe even number 1! it’s so good lol. also, you broke me first really needs that success.

overall, great review! ;)

Thanks mate! :)

I'm glad we agree regarding 'Midnight Sky' & 'You Broke Me First'.

Yeah, if you hated 'How You Like That', you'll really despite this one!

okay i just heard ice cream... it’s not as dreadful as how you like that, but it’s still really bad. i’m feeling like a light 3 on it, it’s really annoying.

"it’s not as dreadful as 'How You Like That"... no, mate, it's worse! :P

I only heard it during the chart show, but it's no higher than a 2/10 for me.

Tbh mate I wouldn’t completely rule lighter out of the race for number 1 yet !

I'm surprised at how much you dislike the new BLACKPINK song, I really liked it as a fun summer song.

" all for a song that’s literally just about women’s genitalia"
That shows a lot about talent in music industry these days and shows what these kids and brainwashed people like to hear. Almost everything has to do with s*x, t*ts, as*, twerk etc...no talent.

Good review mate!! I completely agree on the new number 1 ,I can't stand Cardi B. It put it on my nerves!!

avatar

Piran

2

Cardi B's personality really bugs me, plus the lyrics are disgusting! :/

I'm glad that Megan Thee Stallion finally got a #1 single in the UK, but I wish it was with 'Savage' rather than this.

avatar

Piran

2

Yeah, the content of a lot of hit songs (particularly in rap) nowadays in particularly revolting! :/

Songs with these lyrics can get a #1 in 2020, but I doubt they'd even chart at all (let alone inside the Top 40) if they were released even at the start of the century.

Piran

I found it to be incredibly cringey & annoying unfortunately! :/

Piran

Given how many songs are set to go on ACR next week, I'm expecting a massive shake-up! :P

I think 'Mood' will be the next #1 though, whenever 'Wap' starts to decline in performance.

Damián

Absolutely agree with this!

Piran

Thank you! Honestly, while I completely understand why the OCC charts are compiled in the way that they are, I also entirely agree with the general comments on some of today's modern rap music! :/

That's a shame but each to their own :) I pretty much feel that way about Wap :/

Piran

Me too, but I like Megan's two verses! :P

Cardi B becomes the third female rapper to have a #1 in the UK as a lead artist. The previous two were Lil Kim in 2001 with Lady Marmalade and Nicki Minaj in 2014 with Bang Bang

Really wanted Head & Heart to stay at number 1 but Wap has made history by becoming the first women duo to be number 1. hopefully mood can dethrone it next week.

Afraid not... Baccara in 1977..Althia and Donna in 1978,Barbara Dickson and Elaine Paige in 1985,Shakespear's Sister in 1992...all female duos at No.1

I’ve got a question…

So it’s the start of September & we’ve still had no artist to score multiple #1 singles in 2020 (even including all the artists who featured on ‘Times Like These’!).

Does anyone know the last year where this happened, or would this be the first?

I know there’s still like another four months to go, but I’m still curious, haha. :)

2016 I think every #1 was different artists

J

Jamie

2

cameron is correct last time was 2016

avatar

Piran

2

Yeah, they were some very long #1's that year, haha! :P

avatar

Piran

2

Do you think the same thing will happen in 2020? :)

avatar

Cameron

3

I think it could happen in 2020, also 2008 every #1 was a different artist as well

avatar

Piran

2

It happened more often than I thought then! I thought this year might've been the first, but it actually last happened only four years ago, haha.

avatar

Cameron

2

Actually Love Yourself re-entered at #1 at the start of 2016 so if you count that then Justin Bieber had two #1s in 2016

avatar

Piran

2

Yeah, I count both 'Love Yourself' & 'Cold Water' as 2016 #1's! :P

avatar

Cameron

3

In that case, 2008 was the last year it happened and the only time this century

avatar

Piran

2

2008 had a fair few #1's though, didn't it?

avatar

Cameron

3

Yes 2008 had 20 #1s and they were all different artists

avatar

Piran

1

There have been 15 in 2020 so far.

avatar

Cameron

2

But in 2008, Alexandra Burke had a #1 with Hallelujah but the X Factor Finalists 2008 also had a #1 with Hero and Alexandra Burke was part of the X Factor Finalists 2008

avatar

Piran

2

Hmm... not sure that counts then, because Alexandra Burke technically had two #1's in 2008, haha! :P

avatar

Cameron

3

So if you count Alexandra Burke having two #1s in 2008 then the last time it definitely happened was 1992 haha

avatar

Piran

2

Haha, are we going to find any duplicates in 1992 then? ;)

It'll be interesting to see if it holds & if so, what OCC will class the most recent year for it as.

For the same reason, I think 1994 was too, but I'd need to look it up o be sure!

Seriously though, this week was awful! :(

I'm alright Piran. How are you?

avatar

Piran

2

I'm a bit annoyed to be honest.

'Wap' is #1 & 'Cardigan' dropped out of the Top 40!

I'm okay in general though. :)

I thought you might be! :P
