Eurovision Song Contest songs aren't faring as well on the Swiss Charts as they did last week. DJ BoBo's single Vampires are alive fell 9 positions to #14 in the Swiss Top 100 Singles. Renewed interest in the song had given it a spike back into the Top 10 after the Song Contest (the single has been on the chart for eleven weeks after entering at #3). Marija �erifović, this year's winner, fell from #19 to #45 her second week on the chart with Molitva; she's having a better time in Sweden where she reached #9.
Unfortunately, Roger Cicero, Verka Serduchka and Serebro all fell completely off the Swiss Top 100 Singles chart this week.
Céline Dion and Baschi both helped to knock DJ BoBo's concept album "Vampires" from #2 down to #10 on the Swiss Album Top 100. Céline Dion's French language album "D'elles" entered the Swiss Album charts at #3 this week. Of course the world-wide star has been a perennial favourite in Switzerland since she brought the nation her last Eurovision Song Contest win in 1988 singing Ne partez pas sans moi (oddly enough that song only spent four weeks on the Swiss Singles chart in 1988 peaking at #11). Baschi – whose latest album entered the Swiss charts at #1 this week – is a young local star who made good after being voted out of the Swiss Idol-style casting show MusicStars several weeks before his colleague Piero Esteriore. Piero also failed to win the MusicStars' top spot, but went on to become the only singer to receive "null points" in a Song Contest Semi Final since 2004 when the Semi Final format was introduced.
Roger Cicero's album Männersachen is also suffering in Switzerland this week. It's fallen from its peak at #40 down to #83 in the Swiss Album Top 100 after eleven weeks on the chart.
The "Eurovision Song Contest – Helsinki 2007" official album is still in the Top 10 of the Swiss Compilation Chart where it sits at #9 (down from #3 last week).
