Aussie Sweep: May 29, 2013..


Hey folks, I'm back with this week's trip Down Under to check out the new songs making the official singles chart in Australia this week, as Robin Thicke charms a third week out of #1 with "Blurred Lines"...

For the second consecutive week, a performance from this country's edition of The Voice not only places the highest debut but also enters in the top-10. This time it's Harrison Craig with his version of Elvis' "Can't Help Falling In Love" at #6. From Seal's "team", he was "saved" by the public vote...

 The next Voice entry at #11 is Luke Kennedy from Ricky Martin's squad, who was chosen by his coach to advance with his performance of Australian singer John Farnham's "Please Don't Ask Me"...


Celia Pavey, from Delta Goodrem's Voice team, was saved by the public to the next round with her cover of Dolly Parton's "Jolene"...


Australian YouTube comedians the Janoskians return at #30 with "Best Friends"...(NSFW)


Singer Matt Corby, who in 2007 was the runner-up on Australian Idol, follows up his #2 hit "Brother" with "Resolution" which enters at #34. It's my "Aussie Pick of the Week"...


Country singer Keith Urban returns to his former home's charts as the Kiwi-born enters at #40 with "Little Bit Of Everything"...


Kiyomi Vella, from Joel Madden's Voice team, was also saved by the public vote no doubt helped by the #45 placing of her rendition of Bjork's "It's Oh So Quiet"....


Even though Australia doesn't have an entry in the Eurovision song contest, the winning entry "Only Teardrops" by Danish singer Emmelie De Forest debuts at #47...


Back to the Voice Australia, singer Miss Murphy from Ricky Martin's team comes in at #49 with the relatively obscure Beyonce' song "1+1"...


Swedish EDM musician/producer Sebastian Ingrosso, recently 1/3 of the venerable Swedish House Mafia, reutrns to the chart at #53 with "Reload" featuring Tommy Trash and John Martin, the latter the vocalist on the SHM worldwide smash "Don't You Worry Child"...


Voice contestant Jackie Sannia, from Goodrem's team, enters at #65 with her take on Demi Lovato's "Skyscraper", and she was "saved" by the public vote...


English band London Grammar debut at #68 with their Metal & Dust EP...


The highest placing of a Voice contestant that was sent home, in this case Jac Stone from Team Seal, is at #76 with Alanis Morissette's "Uninvited"..


Jac's teammate, Mitchell Anderson, did squeak through as he also debuts at #79 with the Beatles' "Dear Prudence"...


..One rung under that is another Voice act that was booted last week, Michael Paynter from Joel Madden's squad with Bruno Mars' "Locked Out Of Heaven" at #80. Surprising, since Paynter was the only one to have had a chart career before the show..


Another Michael from Madden's team, Michael Stangel, is in at #82 with the song "Four Walls" by Cold Chisel. He was saved by the public vote...


Ricky Martin's Voice contestant Simon Meli was also saved by the vote for his cover of the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy For The Devil"....


...Delta Goodrem's personal Voice "save", Steve Clisby, pops in at #89 with Bill Withers' "Just The Two Of Us"...


The last of the Voice entries at #96 is Luke Kennedy's performance from the Battle Rounds, "I Dreamed A Dream"...


Wrapping up the debuts at #97 is Canadian singer/songwriter Dallas Green, who records under the name City And Colour, with his native country's #1 rock hit "Thirst"...


That closes out this week's outback musical adventure...I'll be back tomorrow with another Song of the Day, 7 of the 70s, and 8 from the 80s....G'nite!
