As someone who has more than enough experience with running out of time to update the Weekly Chart, a big thank you and congrats to spiritualized on his run of the project. It's quite an effort, and I never expressed how impressed I was with your handling of it ;)

Best of luck to LastEnemy on your initial takeover. Someone on this forum needs to support the newest releases in stride.

ONE suggestion I will throw in that I didn't understand the purpose of - why make the weekly Spotify playlist entirely new every week? Seems it would work better to have one playlist that updates every week, otherwise it's impossible to follow & subscribe to.

Agreed on all points.

Thanks for all the effort spiritualized.

Thanks Setherex, I agree with you about the Spotify playlist and will change it for next time.

If anyone can advise on how to import a table from Excel into a post here, I would be very grateful.

Hi and thanks for the support. The chart is a labor of love, really taking a chunk of free time, but when it's running fine, it shouldn't take more than an hour to put together.
Setherex, the Spotify playlist idea is great, why didn't I think about this before ? I have countless playlists in my library which I didn't know what to do with. The only downside is that you can't go back to archives if needed, but not sure anyone needed it...

TheLastEnemy = I tried to import excel spreadsheets, but it wont't appear onscreen, it's just an attachment. The only way around this is to work on your spreadsheet, take a jpg snapshot of it and upload it on pictures websites like tinypic. Once you upload them, they create a link which you can paste in the thread.

I have to say that the Andrew Bird songs are really top quality - bodes very well for the album, which I have yet to listen...

PS : Did anyone notice the uncanny similarity of Jenny Lewis' voice to Kate Bush...freaky. The music is more upbeat, but this could be a doppelganger...

Hello Spiritualized, j'espère que tu te reposes bien de ne plus devoir animer ce "jeu" ?
Otherwise Andrew Bird is always a wonder, he has never done anything bad, his songs are always little sweets for the ear. Very little esteemed here, I don't know why?

On a similar note, is it just me or does Weyes Blood sound like Karen Carpenter?

Hello Romain, oui ! Je me repose, et j’en profite pour écouter plus de musique. C’est du gagnant gagnant !
