Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is by one of this year’s top newcomers to my chart. In fact, later this year, he’ll probably be in the running for my #1 song of 2016. Of course, that’s with “Fire”, a former #1 that stands at #36 in its 29th week. Singer Barns Courtney lands his second hit here with “Glitter & Gold”, new at #37. It goes for adds at the Triple A format on the 19th. It remains to be seen whether or not “Fire” can climb any higher than the top 20 at Alternative radio, but I hope it does.
  • In 1998, the Texas band Fastball took a song called “Fire Escape” to #12 on the Alternative chart and #25 on the CHR/Top 40 chart. It was the follow-up to “The Way”, a big multi-format hit earlier that year. 18 years later, a different song with the same title is hitting the airwaves, performed by Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness. It enters at #38 on my chart. A total of seven songs by McMahon (four under Jack’s Mannequin) have reached my top 40.
  • He’ll be 65 in a few weeks, and he’s still making great tunes. The legendary Sting returns to my chart with his first entry in a decade, “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You”, entering at #40. It’s the leadoff single from 57th & 9th, due November 11. In the spring of 2006, he collaborated with Sheryl Crow on “Always On Your Side”, which peaked at #32.
