Eurovision Union’s Chart Toppers #12

Throughout 2017, Eurovision Union was dedicated in bringing you Weekly Playlists with new music from Eurovision and National Final stars, new and old, as well as stars we’d love to see at Eurovision one day! We made so many musical discoveries, and through 2018, we want to share with you which songs we’ve been loving! Some songs will come and go, and some will stick around – here are our Eurovision Union Chart Toppers!

  1. Tesla – Capo Plaza ft. Sfera Ebbasta & DrefGold (NEW)

Capo Plaza is having a moment on the Italian charts right now, and I’ve hopped straight on board with this track from his new album. This track caught my attention immediately, and it’s turned into an addiction ever since! It seems many agree, since it’s had over 25 million listens!

2. Toy – Netta (↓1)

It took a while to get on board with this song, but again, the addiction is real. It’s becoming the ultimate car karaoke song, and it has to be turned up loud for the full effect! Many of the Eurovision songs from this year are fading out of my playlist, but this one is around for another fortnight.

3. Morirò da re – Måneskin (NEW)

We really want this young and fresh Italian group to represent Italy at Eurovision one day, because I am certain that we would see an Italian win. They are just the right amount of pop and rock, plus they just ooze charisma and uniqueness. This is their latest track, and it’s an absolute banger.

4. Özönvíz – Pápai Joci (NEW)

All aboard the ethno train! It’s been a hot minute since we’ve had Joci Pápai in our playlists, but I decided to throw this back in the mix and there are no regrets. I love everything about this, from his voice, to the melody and the sound and style of the music.

5. No Excuses – Ralph Felix ft. Anton Ewald (↓3)

This is the guilty pleasure that you don’t need to feel guilty about, because it’s just such a good pop tune. It has been in our Top 5 for a little while now, and for good reason. If you like a dance pop song, you’ll surely love this one.

6. Origo – Pápai Joci (NEW)

Another Joci song has hit our Chart Toppers, and this one might be more recognisable. You’ll know Origo if you follow Eurovision, and if you’re on Eurovision Union, the chances are you do! It was the Hungarian entry at Eurovision in 2017, and although it’s been more than a year since we saw this hit the stage, it’s still just as good.

7. Umuligt – Basim (NEW)

Dreams do come true, as Basim released a new single! It’s a song with less of that pumping beat, but has a bit more drama to it. It has such a beautiful melody to it, so it’s definitely going to be up there with the other Basim songs that I’ve listened to more times than I’d like to admit

8. Lie to Me – Mikolas Josef (↑12)

I am having a serious moment with this song, as it’s just that type of song that can pump you up. There is a reason why it finished so high at Eurovision, made even more impressive since it’s a self-written song. Best served loud.

9. Wrong Turn – Blanche (↓4)

Although we had to wait a while to get a new single from Belgian artist Blanche, the wait was well and truly worth it. It’s just the right amount of calmness to chaos, and the simple melody makes it prime karaoke material.

10. Secrets – Nathan Trent (↑4)

Talk about addictive melodies, this is definitely one of the catchiest tunes on this edition of Chart Toppers. It’s such an upbeat song that you can’t help but bopping along. It also helps that Nathan’s voice is amazing!

11. Nova Lisboa – Dino d’Santiago (↓5)

Take me back to Lisbon, please! This song takes me back to exploring the streets of Lisbon, and perhaps could be seen as my personal anthem to that special trip. Beyond that, it’s a beautiful melody and voice.

12. Tanker – Basim (↓8)

It’s one of the slower Basim songs, and since his newest release is a bit slower as well, Tanker is still getting a good workout on the playlist. Whereas some of his other songs are good pump up songs, this is definitely one to play when you need to slow things down.

13. Big Bro Thang – Big Brovaz (NEW)

In a late night google deep dive, I came across this national final song from the humorously named Big Brovaz, but little did I know that I would be falling in love with a UK national final song from 2007. This is totally up my alley, and I feel robbed even now that they didn’t win the national final!

14. Lungomare Latino – Gue Pequeno ft. Willy William (NEW)

There always has to be a bit of rap represented in the Chart Toppers, and this new Italian rap tune from Gue Pequeno is one of the new additions. It took a few listens to truly get into, but now there’s no looking back.

15. Comme Ci Comme Ça – Basim (↓6)

This track has been in our Chart Toppers literally since the start of this series (ie, the start of 2018) so I’m well and truly running out of good things to say about this one! It’s dropped a little in our playlist, but won’t be forgotten!

16. Tifældigt – Basim (↓9)

Same case as the previous, there’s only so many ways of saying the same positive thing about a song, and I’m running out! Still love it!

17. Aji Aji – Basim (↓9)

See above!

18. Perdonami – Salmo (↓6)

This has taken a backseat this fortnight, but not because I enjoy it any less, but I’ve just been jamming out to some other tracks this time!

19. Serio – Emis Killa ft. Capo Plaza (↓8)

Same goes for this song as it’s been taking a bit of a hit in the amount of plays, but this marks the first time that Capo Plaza has had two songs in our Chart Toppers!

20. Concrete – AMAYA (↓7)

Rounding out the Chart Toppers this time around is Amaya with her song Concrete, which is an absolute bop. Top points for such a catchy chorus!
