Chart Notes:

  • The week’s Biggest Mover belongs to The 1975. They debuted at #40 last week with “Love Me”, and this week, they keep it moving up to #31. The band will be looking for their fourth top ten on my chart later this year. Now, from the useless trivia department, no songs called “Love Me” or song titles containing the two words in that sequence within a larger phrase ever ranked in the national top 40 in 1975. However, two did in 1974 and another two did in 1976. That’s just the way love goes.
  • This week’s Highest Debut belongs to One Direction and their new one, “Perfect”, bowing in at #37. It’s the second single to be issued from their Made In The A.M. album, due November 13. Leadoff single “Drag Me Down” holds at #3 for a third week. The act’s latest single was co-written by group members Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, along with Jesse Shatkin, Jacob Kasher, John Ryan, Maureen Anne McDonald and Julian Bunetta.
  • He’s currently falling with his prior single, “Scars On Scars”, but singer Martin Luke Brown edges into the countdown at #39 with his fourth charting song, “Knife Edge”. It’s another sharp sound from Brown, who released an EP earlier this year and should have some more music coming out next year, at least I hope so. Of course, I will stan when appropriate.
  • They last hit my chart in the spring with “Let In The Sun”, which peaked at #17. Now, from the expanded reissue of their III album, Take That come in at #40 with “Hey Boy”. They’ve now charted three songs as a trio, which is the same number of songs they charted as a quintet in 2010 and 2011 when all of their original members were in tact.
