It's a second (and probably last as someone called Beatrice Egli is approaching) week for Capital Cities on top of the German charts with "Safe And Sound". Proving that he is one of the best loved German singers Xavier Naidoo brings yet another top three hit with "Bei meiner Seele" debuting straight at #2. This is Xavier's fourth single to peak at #2 and he was last in the top 100 with "Bitte hör nicht auf zu träumen (live)" (peak at #22) in 2010. The top three is rounded by Pink and former #1 "Just Give Me A Reason".

The sensation that is
the comeback single of Daft Punk moves up two and "Get Lucky" peaks at
#4, becoming the first single of the French duo to enter the top five in
Luckily, this week also sees the successful return of
perhaps the best German band active right now at #7. Sportfreunde
Stiller (whose Unplugged concert in Vienna is one of the best I've been)
bring new material with "Applaus !! Applaus !!", which becomes the
third top ten single of the boys next to #1 football anthem "’54, ’74,
’90, 2006" and the #6 peak of "Ein Kompliment (Unplugged)".
finally for the top 20 Robin Thicke has made it this week with his first
ever hit "Blurred Lines", which rises eight and is at #19. It comes
with the support of Pharrell, who is also providing vocals for Daft
Punk's top ten hit.
Further down the countdown, Wankelmut & Emma
Louise advance three in the second week for "My Head Is A Jungle" and
are this time at #29.
The third and last new entry straight into the top 50 also belongs to a German act, coming from legendary trio Fettes Brot. "KusKussKuss" is their first song to enter the countdown after the disappointing performance of 2010's singles "Amsterdam" and "Kontrolle". An entry at #35 is a relatively good one but still a far cry from the success of modern German classics "Bettina, zieh dir bitte etwas an" and "Emanuela".
And the other new entries this week:
60. Tyga - Rack City
91. Zaz - On Ira
99. Josh Groban - Brave
The Album Chart
the album chart veteran local musician Reinhard Mey has his third #1
album as "Dann mach's gut" storms the chart directly at #1. Also new at
#2 is rapper KC Rebell's second album "Banger rebellieren"
(outperforming the #33 peak of his debut from last year). After her
debut album peaked at #6, Dutch star Caro Emerald's sophomore effort comes
fresh at #3, followed by Rod Stewart's latest "Time" at #4 (the
rockstar has no #1 album in Germany) and Deep Purple's last week's #1
"Now What ?!" at #5.
