‘Fire in the Rain’ has racked up more than 2 million plays on Spotify and continues its climb on the Swedish singles tally. Moving 50-34, the single precedes an upcoming EP released on June 17th.
Originally released in December 1979, ‘I Have a Dream’ became a worldwide hit at the end of that decade for ABBA. 20 years later, Westlife repeated worldwide success with a new version produced by Pete Waterman and David Foster.
To secure success in Eurovision is one thing, to maintain interest afterwards another. A surefire favorite of mine, ‘Sound of Silence’ seems to have peaked around the world. Streaming is decreasing everywhere, but Australia where Dami Im reaches a new peak!
Believe it or not, Europe’s ‘The Final Countdown’ celebrates its 30th birthday this week as it entered the Swedish singles chart at No.3 back in May 1986. Within a week, it had knocked Stye’s ‘Dover-Calais’ off the top spot, spending three weeks in pole position. The track is nothing short of epic, becoming a true classic.
