Earlier this month, the one who was the greatest artist in the Czech Republic, and then Czechoslovakia, left us forever. An estimated 300,000 people went to pay him a tribute in which he holds state funeral. A funeral of state honors was held at St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague and flags flew at half-mast on public buildings. Czech President Milos Zeman and Prime Minister Andrej Babis were among the guests at the funeral service, which was broadcast on big screens and on Czech television. His popularity crossed from east to west during the Cold War and fans stood for hours in a line stretching back at least two kilometers to bid the man nicknamed "Sinatra of the East" farewell.
A life of success
Over the course of his career he released over 100 albums and 100 compilation albums and sold much more than 50 million records worldwide, 23 million of them in the German-speaking market, and about 15 million in Czech Republic and Slovakia. Gott represented Austria in the Eurovision Song Contest 1968 with the song Tausend Fenster, finishing in 13th place.
In May 2019, only months before his passing, Gott released his very last song and music video - a duet "Srdce nehasnou" (Hearts will go on) with his daughter Charlotte.
Latest Album Compilation / Charts
Now a compilation of eighty famous songs from his repertoire was released. It is clear that no choice can be complete. However, Gottovský expert and experienced composer Miloš Skalka chose the most essential ones. Chronologically assembled into four attractive units. New remastering care was received. CD is packed in folding paper digipack with archive and contemporary photographs.
Also the collection "Singly" was released, including 300 Songs from 1962–2019 in 15CD's. A large selection of Gott's single and EP recordings, spanning the early 1960s to the present. Three hundred songs, almost complete view of the gradual changes of music, lyrics and arrangements. Evidence of the singer's talent versatility, his successful pursuit of world trends, and his excellent home repertoire.
In both Slovakia and the Czech Republic, both collections topped album sales lists. The most iconic albums of their careers have returned to Charts from both countries but also from Austria and Germany. In the Czech Republic, ten albums have returned to the Top 50!

In 2015, Anggun released the song Perfect Life which was included in the album Toujours un ailleurs. The album reached the Gold status in France. This week, specially because of the Twisted Dee and Diego Fernandez remix, the song peaked the number 18 at the Billboard Dance Club Songs... and still climbing! How far will it goes?
This is not the first time that former ESC artists made success in this list. Recently, Laroussi and Netta took their songs to this popular US chart.
