2018 Chart Year - 5/26/18 - Week 27/53 - Fandom Foreigner Starcadian Debuts at #1, Jyc Row Lands in Top 10, JoinedTheHerd Climbs to Zone

In a special situation, indie musician Starcadian, who specializes in 80s-style electro and new wave, has managed to get himself onto the Trot 100, at the top position! How was this done, you may ask? Well, his song Interspace received a special animation from CaptainHoers, an animator in the fandom known for such videos as Spitfire's Day Off (which was soundtracked by the 90s hit cover of "Come on Eileen" by Save Ferris). Receiving over 12,000 views and 1,300 likes in its first week, the video caught the attention of the artist, who gave it tacit approval with a positive comment. The song itself is ambiguously lyricized so that it doesn't counter its veracity for the chart, and Starcadian has no major hits in the mainstream that would invalidate the entry, so the song is the #1 for the chart this week, dethroning Jay Man's Soaring With Stars.

Elsewhere in the top 10, there's quite a rumbling going on. Runaway Princess continues its ascent, up 10-6 this week. After spending 2 weeks in the top 15, JoinedTheHerd's remix of We're Not Flawless swoops in 13-7, joining the artist's remix of Time to Be Awesome (holding at #5 this week). Finally, the penultimate song from Jyc Row's Heroes EP, Hope, debuts at #9, continuing the top 10 debut streak that began with its 2nd track:

  • Strength, #17 (January 27, 2018)
  • Bravery, #6 (February 24, 2018)
  • Healing, #9 (March 24, 2018)
  • Beauty, #5 (April 28, 2018)
  • Hope, #9 (May 26, 2018)
