Eurovision Union’s Chart Toppers #16

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 (=)

Another top finish for Tesla as it has been another two weeks with this track stuck in my head. It’s not the most revolutionary rap song, and lyrically it’s a bit so-so, but the melody is a definite earworm, which is why it has been featured as the top Chart Topper quite a few times now!

2. Que Pasa – Omar Rudberg (=)

Omar Rudberg is also holding second place with easily one of the catchiest songs of the year. The Latino inspired tune is trendy and addictive and I’m annoyed it took me so long to discover it! Off the back of this track, I’m hoping Omar can pull out something as catchy as this for a follow up single!

3. One Last Time – Gromee ft. Jesper Jenset (↑1)

In terms of the class of Eurovision 2018 and their follow up tracks, this one by Gromee is definitely one of the best. From the first seconds that we hear Jesper’s vocals, we know we’re in for a good three and a half minutes.

4.  Perdonami – Salmo (↑3)

This track has been up and down in our Chart Toppers countless times, but the king is back in the Top 5 once again. After featuring this as an entry in the fan contest Glorevision, it’s been at the forefront of my playlist and getting a lot of love.

5. Žiūrėk Ką Padarei – Donny Montell (↓1)

Rounding out the Top 5 is a song that I objectively think is one of the best releases from a Eurovision star in 2018. It is a pop song much like many tracks off his discography, but it has an edge that lifts it a level beyond his previous releases.

6. Heaven On My Skin – Oscar Enestad (↓1)

The former FO&O boys are really killing it with their solo careers, and although early in the game, their releases so far have been incredible, including the debut solo single from Oscar Enestad. It’s everything you could want from a pop number and more!

7. Dance You Off (Extended Version) – Benjamin Ingrosso (↑1)

Although Benjamin released his Eurovision follow up single, I still keep going back to Dance You Off. Of course it’s the extended version, because the extra few seconds of the song just make for a few more seconds of enjoyment.

8. (Can’t Keep Calling) Misty – Frankie Animal (NEW)

Upon request I reviewed this Eesti Laul entry as part of my National Final Throwback, and here’s my update. The status is addicted, and even though I commented on certain shortcomings of this song, I can confirm that the more you listen to this song, the more you want to listen to this song.

9. Elevate – Blissful (↓3)

Svala’s voice is truly a match made in heaven with this synth-pop style of song, and it’s definitely up there with my most frequently listened to tracks over the last few months. It has an addictive verse melody, and an easy to sing along to chorus.

10. Lungomare Latino – Gue Pequeno ft. Willy William (↓1)

Another staple in our playlist recently is this track from Italian rapper Gue Pequeno. This track specifically is more pop oriented with a Latino flair, and although it might not be to everyone’s tastes, I’m a big fan!

11. Imprint – Felix Sandman (↑1)

Yes, this is a fairly new release but it doesn’t take long to get addicted to this song. If his debut solo album is anything like this track and his Melfest tune, we’re in for a treat!

12. No Reason – Erik Rapp (NEW)

Erik Rapp is one of the most talented stars to have come from Junior Eurovision, and although his style has changed considerably since then, he has grown for the better. His relaxed style of music is unique and underrated, and from his EP this track is definitely one of my personal favourites.

13. Tifældigt – Basim (=)

And only one remains! Basim has been a staple in our Chart Toppers since this series began, but after about 7 months of consistent listening, only one song remains! Still a favourite, but with a wave of new tracks, it’s time for Basim to *temporarily* step aside!

14. Secrets – Nathan Trent (↓4)

It’s no secret that I’ve been enjoying this track lately, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to see this pop up in our Chart Toppers once again. It’s a catchy track that oozes with Nathan’s personality, and that can only be a positive thing!

15. Stay In Bed – Guy Sebastian (↑3)

If there was ever an anthem for my life, this would be it. It helps that Guy’s voice is incredible, even on a laid back track such as this!

16. Rollercoaster – Emis Killa (NEW)

After a few punchy singles from Italian rapper Emis Killa, it came as somewhat of a surprise for us to hear this track which is much more relaxed. It has a bit of the Latino feel which makes it an extra level of catchy, but it’s not a song I always crave to listen to.

17. Ulay Nedaber – Nadav Guedj (RETURN)

The love for this song stems from the incredible vocals, and it’s undeniable the talent Nadav Guedj has, and we saw that at Eurovision a few years back. He has had some amazing singles, but this is by far the best!

18. Get It – Kristian Kostov (NEW)

Another new track, the latest single from Kristian Kostov has that same melancholic feel to it as some of his previous tracks, which is the perfect sound for his vocals. If this is what we will be getting on his upcoming EP, we’re in for a treat.

19. Toy – Netta (↑1)

This is a cracking song, and yes that was an intentional pun! It’s not a song I’ll have on repeat, but for the occasional listen it certainly meets the brief.

20. Sista Ordet – Niello ft. Robin Stjernberg (NEW)

It’s been a while since this track has made our playlist, but it’s a great tune fronted by one of my favourite Eurovision artists Robin Stjernberg! It grabs you from the first few seconds and you’re hooked for the entire song!
