Chart Notes:

  • In the 1980’s, a California band named The Motels had a string of four top 40 songs, including two top tens: 1982’s “Only The Lonely” and 1983’s “Suddenly Last Summer”. Three decades later, another California band called Saint Motel brings the word back and sings the words on this week’s new #1 song, “My Type”. The track is currently rising towards the top ten on Alternative radio and has some good crossover potential this summer.
  • Up nine notches to #25 is this week’s Biggest Mover, trio Jukebox The Ghost’s “Postcard”. It’s their first top 40 release and can be found on their self-titled album. Though the volume of postcards sent through the mail has decreased over time thanks to email and social media, you can still buy packs of them for use. I’m sure the three guys would appreciate some.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is from newcomer Gavin James, a 23-year-old from Dublin, Ireland who comes in at #39 with “The Book Of Love”. The song was originally recorded by Boston band The Magnetic Fields in 1999, and many covers of it have been issued throughout the years. James’s version is currently a hit in Belgium and The Netherlands.
  • Also debuting this week is another new act, Jakubi, a five-piece Australian group based in Melbourne. They’re new at #40 with “Couch Potato”. In a week, the five men begin a West Coast tour before making stops in the Midwest and Northeast in late May and June. A video clip for the song recently debuted.
