Passenger's "Let her go" does not seem to be letting go the first position as it stands there for a third consecutive week, followed by Will.I.Am's "Scream and Shout" and Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors".
highest new entry can be found at #5, with the honour going to Pink's
latest single "Just Give Me a Reason". I've written before that Pink is
huge in Germany and it is not strange that the third single from Pink's
latest album "The Truth About Love" becomes her 18th top 10 song in the
country. Previous singles "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" and "Try" reached
#10 and #2, respectively. As long as her collaborator Nate Ruess is
concerned, the Fun. frontman has been in the top 10 before with "We Are
Young" (peak #4).
A place behind Pink, OneRepublic return to the
top ten with "If I Lose Myself", an increase from #11, while Macklemore
and Ryan Lewis' "Can't Hold Us" is up a notch to #7.
performance of top favourite Ricardo Bielecki at the latest edition of
DSDS of "Impossible" has triggered the great interest towards James
Arthur's own version of the song, which shoots itself to #8 from #72.
This is the first appearance of the song in the top 40 and the first
time when a UK X Factor winner becomes so huge in Germany with his
finale and debut song. Traditionally, the record companies wait for a
more "proper" material to promote the winners outside the UK. The
original version of the song, performed by Shontelle, never charted in
Veteran East German band Silly make it this week inside the top 20 as their single "Deine Stärken" moves eight and peaks at #19.
position behind, Die Toten Hosen bring their third single taken from
multi-selling "Ballast Der Republik". "Draußen vor der Tür" follows #1
smash "Tage wie diese" and the #3 peak of "Altes Fieber".
"Rosanna" is just outside the top 20, this week climbing ten places to
peak at #22. It is followed by Hurts' "Miracle", up from #34 to #23 in
its fourth week on the hitparade.
Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding's "I
Need Your Love" advances two and is this week at #26, while further
down the chart the latest celebrity couple Sarah Engels and Pietro
Lombardi manage to crack the top 50 with "Dream Team", an increase from
#63 to #41. Whether the DSDS finalists from 2011 (he won, she was #2)
will manage to have a hit in 2013 is doubtful but we'll see in the next
few weeks. This is Sarah and Pietro's second collaboration as "I Miss
You" (does someone remember this?) reached #2 in 2011.
so often that Michael Bublé has singles entering the chart but "It's A
(this week new at #42), the pilot single from his newest album "To Be Loved", is his seventh top 100 song. Bublé's best performing
song is "Let It Snow", peak #35.
Also new in the top 50 is
VoXXclub's debut single "Rock mi" at #45, while at #46 Nelly's "Hey
Porsche" becomes the 16th top 50 single of the US rapper as a lead
artist (up from #62). Previous Nelly offering "Just a Dream" reached #17
way back in 2010.

The Album Chart
Expectedly, in the album chart Depeche Mode score their ninth! number one record in Germany as "Delta Machine" debuts directly at top. It is followed by Silly's latest album "Kopf an Kopf" at #2, while OneRepublic's "Native" enters at #4. Interesting, it's the best performing album of OneRepublic so far.
