Let the singles chart be for singles. If we want multiple songs by an artist buy the CD/LP or download in full.

If it wasn't for the 3 song rule, Adele would of had a massive album bomb in the UK, and I doubt that the rule alongside ACR is going to go anytime soon. So many albums have been robbed album bombs including Ed Sheeran's which I don't care about his. Imagine if Adele, Olivia Rodrigo, Ariana Grande, The Weekend, Post Malone, Dua Lipa and others getting album bombs. In my opinion and don't hate me, I think the charts are about the 100 most popular songs based on digital downloads, streaming and physical purchases (Single CD). Even if the Divide album bomb did some damage to the charts, it was intriguing to see all of his album tracks on the Top 20. Maybe if there was no ACR or three song rule they could combine sales so the album bombs won't take over the top of the charts.

I’m going to be putting my Top 40 singles chart reviews on hold until the New Year, just because it’s literally going to be mostly (if not all) Christmas songs throughout the next few weeks!

That being said, given that they got a really good reception last week, I’m going to continue rating albums in the meantime! My aim is to do five per week on here, but I’m open to as many suggestions as possible if you guys would like to see more.

Today, I’ll repost some scores from a few weeks or even months ago, including; ‘Music Of The Spheres’ by Coldplay, ‘Happier Than Ever’ by Billie Eilish, ‘You Signed Up For This’ by Maisie Peters, ‘Only Honest On The Weekend’ by Becky Hill & of course, ‘30’ by Adele!

Hope you all enjoy it. :)

As a lover of this album I would like to know what are your thoughts about it? :)
Because judging on your ratings you don't seem to like the ballads and you seem to like the upbeat songs more, while for me it's the complete opposite, I absolutely love the ballads and less the upbeat ones like NDA/Oxytocin.
In my opinion, Goldwing, Halleys Comet, Your Power and Everybody Dies are gorgeous tracks, the lyrics, the production, the vocal performance.... It's so pure, so beautiful to listen, that's why i'm surprised you rated these songs so low. Maybe you didn't take enough time to understand the lyrics or to listen to every details in the songs? (with headphones it's wow!) It took me a few listens to fully appreciate this project and understand it ^^
Also I think the transition is very powerful & important because of what Billie is trying to say (and she's right tho)

But one thing I agree with you is for Happier Than Ever, that song is mind-blowing!

Thanks Dami!

I already have two album reviews planned for next Friday, so hopefully you’ll like both of those too. :)

avatar

Piran

Yeah, it was definitely my least favourite track on the album when I reviewed it & it’s stated that way for me ever since. :/

avatar

Piran

1

I think it’s mainly because I’m used to Billie doing a lot of slower songs, but ‘NDA’ & ‘Oxytocin’ stood out for me because of how much more energetic they sound! I honestly think that Billie sells this dark, tense vibe a lot better personally. :)

That being said, I think she’s a beautiful singer of all of the tracks that you listed, although ‘No Time To Die’ is still my all-time favourite song of hers!

for context, the “single effect” comes in place when the single(s) from an album are scored higher than the rest. easy on me got a light 10 because as a single, it got time to breathe unlike the album tracks

Why cant the OCC look back on chart history and put the REAL highest possition of Christmas singles Wizzard/Slade etc, both these singles orinally made the top 5, Slade got to No1, is it so hard to reflect this or do they just ignore the history before the OCC took over the charts ?

What I’m hoping to see in the charts this Christmas (the first one probably won’t happen!):

1) ‘Fairytale Of New York’ to finally hit #1!

2) ‘Santa Tell Me’ & ‘Underneath The Tree’ to both reach the Top 10, especially the latter.

3) ‘Christmas Tree Farm’ to go Top 40, bonus points if it’s with Taylor’s re-recorded version.

4) A really close singles chart battle for the Christmas #1, i.e. a few hundred combined sales or less in it!

5) A much-needed break from LadBaby (even if I have massive respect the cause that he did his three parody hits for).

avatar

David N'jama

3 might not happen this year. She already released so many songs, there's a limit

avatar

Piran

The lowest of the three songs from Taylor is #54 this week & it'll sadly probably drop out by next week, so 'Christmas Tree Farm' will definitely be there if it peaked at #71 in 2019! :P

Hopefully it’ll happen one day for Taylor, but yeah, I think Ari’s has a lot more momentum for now!

I’m really rooting for ‘Santa Tell Me’ since it blocked at #11 last year. :/

I totally agreee wit that...way too many songs for just one year for Taylor...I couldn´t digest even half of them, even when a lot were repeated versions with some changes...

I like "Santa Baby" ...."Feliz Navidad" by José Feliciano took about 37 years (reaching # 44 in 2017, on the week ending January 7,.....in 2020 it reached # 6) to chart for the first time after being released in 1970...so I will keep on waiting one Xmas after another...something similar happened to Mariah Carey´s "All I want for Christmas is you" which In 2019, topped the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time, 25 years after its original release in 1994....something similar happens to me with "Santa Tell me" by Arianna Grande, which I thought it was goiung to top the charts 7 years ago 🤔

Disappointed that ‘Everywhere’ dropped so much throughout the week!

I guess it’s because remakes of classic songs for charity only really get sales rather than streams, so they’ll be fairly frontloaded.

Never mind, the money that they raised for this song to help disadvantaged children is far more meaningful than the position it got on the charts! ❤️

‘Where Are You Now’ finally made it into the Top 40! 😍

So happy to see it here after becoming a hit all across Europe. :)

I can’t believe that ‘Bite Me’ not only missed the Top 40, but dropped out completely after just one week!

It’s so sad that we’re not giving Avril Lavigne another hit. :/

It needs to get some airplay first. :/

it’s not even getting airplay? 😢

Sadly not! If it was going to get support from any major radio station here, it would be Radio 1, but it's not even on their playlists yet. :/

She had her moment. I tbought she has evolved with her music with her 2019 album which was so good, but this song gets the original beat of 20 yrs ago...dont like it

Hmm, yeah, I get what you mean, but at least you can see her appeal! :D

Yeah, so gutted about it. :/

She’s 37 now, but I didn’t think that would stop Radio 1 from playing her music! :(

Several years ago they admitted that they are to please younger audience and in their opinion it means they have to play younger artists. They stopped playing Robbie before he wes 40, Kylie when she was 42. Avril isn't far away from their numbers so I won't be surprised

Hello Piran!! it´s been a couple of weeks that I haven´t said anything in here...as usual, my respect for your comments and your great taste in music....sad for your stopping the stoplight opinions...I love the way you separate by colors what´s growing or decreasing in your taste or your preferences every week....I want to refer to the so commented here about the rule of only 3 songs per singer or band, and how careful they are about it...look what´s happening in America...las week they had 14 songs of "Summer Walker", this week only 2 survived (I don´t like her much, anyway), now, this week the turn is for Taylor Swift= 26 songs of hers!!!!! more than 26% of the chart just for her!!! that´s terrible for me, plus they have 7 songs on "Soul Sonic", 5 songs on "The Weekend", 4 songs on "Doja Cat"...It means that a total of 44% of the chart is in only 5 singers!!! I definitely don´t agree with that....neither with the rule of the 3 songs in here in the UK, but a more dedicated balance...

yeah...agree with that, Avril´s song is not that bad, she sounds more mature in ‘Bite Me’ , thou her classic "Complicated" willl be my 4ever favorite...

I didn´t imagine age was an issue to Radio one...but come to think about it, it seems is real...grown up bands are not aired that much in it...

She sings much better in studio that in live presentations...

As I said before, she sounds more mature to me nowadays, since her 2019 album she sounded better for my taste...

Hey Gerardo! :)

I’m not stopping my Top 40 singles chart reviews! I’m just putting them on hold until the New Year, so they’ll be back within a few weeks, haha.

the UK charts are far less interesting than they used to be . This Sheeran Adele is becoming heavy !

Yeah, for as much as I like Ed’s & Adele’s music, I have to agree that their dominance is becoming very tiring. :/
