Chart Notes:

  • After a couple of modest moves up the chart, Irish singer Gavin James has this week’s Biggest Mover with “Bitter Pill”. It’s a ten notch leap for the 24-year-old, up 30-20. The single is taken from James’s forthcoming album, due early next year. By the way, for all you chart enthusiasts who like a jaded jam or two, these are the previous “bitter” tracks to grab a place in the top 40: Dinah Washington‘s “This Bitter Earth” (#24, 1960), followed by “Bitter Bad” by Melanie (#36, 1973), then the 90’s brought INXS‘s “Bitter Tears” (#32, 1991), “Bittersweet Me” by R.E.M. (#25, 1996) and finally, The Verve and their hit “Bittersweet Symphony” (#22, 1998). (Peaks before Oct. 1973 are from the Hot 100; otherwise, peaks are from R&R.)
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the latest single from Maroon 5, “Feelings”, entering at #39. It is the band’s followup to “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt…”, which recently peaked at #5, but came and went very quickly. The group’s been charting since the summer of 2003, and this marks their 23rd top 40 song to reach my chart, an amazing feat. The single heads to radio in just over a week, so listen for it on your local station.
  • It spent month after month climbing the Alternative radio listing, but Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness‘s “Cecilia And The Satellite” was finally sent recurrent recently after hitting #5 in July. That being said, it did peak at #3 on my top 40 last November (not to toot my own horn, but toot toot.) His followup, “High Dive”, bows in at #40 this week on my chart. It goes to radio at the format on October 13.
