One week after the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest final and this year's participating songs have started climbing the European charts. Sweden leads the way with seven of this year's finalists in the chart and more countries are expected to follow soon.

Verka Serduchka(Ukraine) and Lasha Tumbai shoots directly to #6 this week, Hanna Pakarinen (Finland) follows at #8 with Leave me alone and this year's winning song Molitva by Marija Serifovic (Serbia) comes right after at # 9. Lower down in the Swedish Top 60, we come across Dima Koldun (Belarus) and Work your magic at #34, Serebro (Russia) and Song #1 one place lower at 35 and finally Magdi Rusza (Hungary) with Unsubstantial blues entering at # 59. The Ark climb back up again to #4 from 6 last week.

In Finland, DJ BoBo's Vampires chart at #12 from 7 last week and in Ireland, Verka does it again entering the Irish Top 50 at #31, with Scooch following at #48.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
