Klingande's "Jubel" continues to amaze as it spends a fifth week on top
of Germany's singles chart. It is followed by "Lieder" of Adel Tawil,
which manages to return to #2 (from #4) four weeks after the song
debuted there. At #3 Avicii's "Hey Brother" slips one to
round up the top three.
The highest new entry, at #4, sees the
return of one of the biggest German stars at the moment as Sido makes
"Einer dieser Steine" his fourth top five single. The song follows
"Bilder im Kopf", which peaked at #5 last year, turning into perhaps his
most famous song ever. "Einer dieser Steine", which by the looks of it
will mark the release of a new album, is a collaboration with Mark
Forster, a local singer who has had two singles inside the top 100 so
far, with "Auf dem Weg" (peak #49) being the more successful one.
the slow start three weeks ago and coinciding with the release of his
latest album (of course at #1), "Go Gentle" of Robbie Williams makes it
this time around into the top 20, up from #25 to #16. The song thus
boosts Robbie's string of top 20 hits in Germany to nineteen.
the success of Klingande, it is not odd to see more trying to copy the
winning formula. That's the case at #21 where we have this week Faul
& Wad Ad vs. Pnau debuting with "Changes".
At #22, up from #69,
"Atemlos Durch Die Nacht", Helene Fischer's second single from her
multi-selling new album, is slowly turning the schlager star into a star
in the singles chart as well.
A combination Calvin Harris &
Hurts should have set the German charts on fire (because of Hurts, not
of the British DJ), but for now "Under Control" has to be content with
#25. Last Calvin Harris was in the top 100 with "Thinking About You"
(peak #56), while Hurts were here with "Somebody to Die For" (peak #46).
"Roar" was deprived of the number one slot by that awful DeRulo's song,
Katy Perry has released the follow-up in the shape of
"Unconditionally". The song enters this week the top 50 at #34, up from
#54, to continue Katy's unharmed string of top 40 hits.
At #45 Kid
Ink and Chris Brown move up two to a new peak, while Sportfreunde
Stiller's great "New York, Rio, Rosenheim" finally makes it into the top
50 by climbing 11 places to #49. The follow-up to #4 hit "Applaus,
Applaus" has been shamefully met with a little interest so far.

The Album Chart
This week sees Robbie Williams having his eleventh LP reaching the #1 slot in Germany - a feat, which I'm sure very few can be proud of. "Swings Both Ways" tops the chart 12 years after "Swing When You’re Winning" did the same. Following several TV appearances Helene Fischer's "Farbenspiel" returns to the top three, up three to #2, while last week's number one - Eminem's "
The Marshall Mathers LP 2" is down to #3. Also new inside the top ten is Eric Clapton's "Crossroads - Guitar Festival 2013" at #5.
