Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut at #36 is from Gwen Stefani and her new ballad called “Used To Love You”. It’s scheduled to be on her forthcoming studio album, although there have been a few attempts to launch it in the last year with singles that just fizzled out. This song, however, could be a different story. Stefani’s last tune to reach my chart was “Settle Down” as a part of No Doubt, which went to #9 in the summer of 2012.
  • Former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert brings his total to six top 40 singles on my chart with his debut at #39 this week, “Another Lonely Night”. It’s the second cut from his album The Original High to make it on, the other being the top 20 hit “Ghost Town” from earlier this year. Lambert’s sole #1 for me thus far is 2010’s “Whataya Want From Me”.
  • Finally, at #40, another Idol, first season winner Kelly Clarkson, enters with the title track from her album from earlier this year, Piece By Piece. Both of the prior singles to be released from it, “Heartbeat Song” and “Invincible”, made my top ten, though neither one was a longevity champ. We’ll see if this track can stay around a little longer.
  • As we enter the month of November, and the sweaters and snow boots start to come out, there are only four more Adam’s Top 40 charts until the end of the 2015 Chart Year. Who is gonna rank at #1? Stay tuned for more updates on the Top 100 of 2015 survey, which will be counted down in mid-December here on PGTC.

    Really excited to see A Great Big World on here. It’s awesome they’ve got some new material lined up, and this song is great. If you haven’t already heard it I definitely recommend giving it a listen: http://bit.ly/AGBW-HEO
