Despite that the 2013 year-end charts may at the moment seem more interesting (hopefully VIVA will upload them on its website soon), the new regular German countdown deserves attention as it marks the first time paid music streaming is reflected in the listing. Whether it will have any considerable impact and whether it will be of any good, perhaps the next weeks will show.
The new rule, however, does not stop Pitbull and
Kesha staying for a third week on top with "Timber", followed by former
#1 "Changes" of Faul & Wad Ad Vs. Pnau (up one to #2) and Adel
Tawil's "Lieder" (up one to #3).

It already became obvious that
"Atemlos Durch Die Nacht" has become the most successful single of
Helene Fischer in the singles chart but the hit seems unstoppable as it
moves this week five to claim a new peak at #5. Perhaps the schlager
queen (sorry Andrea) is finding new and new fans as we speak.
and already turning into one of the early 2014 hits, we have "Happy" of
Pharrell Williams, which rises thirteen positions to enter the top ten
for the first time. Needless to say, this is Pharrell's biggest solo hit

After surprisingly leaving the top 20 several weeks ago,
"Tsunami" of Dvbbs & Borgeous returns there by climbing from #33 to
Also on the rise is "Demons", the fourth single of Imagine
Dragons, which moves to #19 from #28, making the string of top 20 hits
of the Las Vegas band in Germany unharmed.

The Album Chart
Still nothing happening in the LP chart with Helene Fischer's "Farbenspiel" continuing its stay on top, while Max Herre's MTV Unplugged moves up one to two. Robbie Williams' "Swings Both Ways" slips this week one notch to #3.
