“Hits!” enters at #8 in Austria, #11 in Argentina; falls in the UK

Written by mf2004 on November 1, 2006 to .

(UPDATED) - According to CAPIF Argentina the new Roxette compilation “Hits!” enters at # 11 in Argentina.

  The “Hits!” album also entered the UK top 40 last week at #22, but lost eleven places to be at #33 this week, This has been expected by fans mostly due to lack of promotion, which this week came in the form as only one TV ad, which was shown at 23:00 GMT. “One Wish” has also been heard on a number of radio stations in the UK now, as reported by some fans.

  Sweden’s top 40 is a chart based on both airplay and single sales in Sweden, and “One Wish” is now at #2 on the chart. The Scissor Sisters are still #1 for the fifth week in a row with their “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’.” Topp40 is hosted by radio station RIX FM.

  In Austria “One Wish” climbs from #74 to #56 and “Hits!” enters the album chart at #8.

Written by colinvdbel on September 22, 2005 to .

UTRECHT - Last week, D.H.T.’s “Listen To Your Heart” (Unplugged version featuring Edmee), was selected as superclip for Holland’s biggest music television station TMF. Besides this version, the original D.H.T. remix is now being played as well.

  On the Billboard Hot 100 the song is still falling, but slowly; last week “Listen To Your Heart” was at #16. This week it’s at #17, after 18 weeks on the chart. Faithful readers may remember its peak position of #8.

“Listen to Your Heart” #1 again

Written by tevensso on September 1, 2005 to .

NEW YORK - D.H.T. is back at #1 with “Listen to Your Heart,” although this time it’s the Top 40 Mainstream chart. Evan Lamberg, EMI Music Publishing New York, comments: “It’s the #1 most played song in the US at Top 40 radio this week…” The single has been on this particular chart for 13 weeks.

  On the Billboard Hot 100 it’s still a top 10 hit, at #10 for the second week in a row. “Listen to Your Heart” has been on the Hot 100 for 15 weeks now.

D.H.T. stays in Top Ten, but falls on Billboard

Written by tevensso on August 25, 2005 to .

NEW YORK - D.H.T.’s climb on the Billboard charts seems to be over for this time. After 14 weeks on the Hot 100, “Listen to Your Heart” falls from its peak position of #8 to #10 this week, and it no longer has a bullet.

  Unsatisfied with the original two videos produced in Europe, D.H.T.’s record label commissioned their own music video to help promote the song here. Released in two different cuts, it was shot at the historic and somewhat notorious Hotel Chelsea on 23rd Street in Manhattan, mostly in the bar located in the basement.

  Full of rock ’n’ roll and literary history – and serving long-term guests – it’s been the temporary home to such well-known names as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Andy Warhol, Tennessee Williams, Patti Smith, Joni Mitchell, Milos Forman, Dylan Thomas and Allen Ginsberg.

D.H.T. holds position

Written by tevensso on August 18, 2005 to .

NEW YORK - “Listen to Your Heart” by D.H.T. holds position at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, still with a bullet. TDR expects the single to climb further as it is quite normal for a single to stand still every other week on Billboard. On the current chart there are three bullets before D.H.T., out of seven tracks.
