Chart Notes:

  • George Ezra‘s “Shotgun” extends its time at #1 on my personal chart by another week, now there for a third week, but the latest countdown is all about the debuts. There are five new tracks entering the top 40, a noticeably larger total than usual, led by “Fred Astaire” from Jukebox The Ghost at #34. This is the follow-up to “Everybody’s Lonely”, which peaked at #2 in April. The trio’s 2015 single “Postcard” spent seven weeks at #1 and became my top song of that year. Two steps below, at #36, Barns Courtney is back with “99”, the year my first official chart was published. (Oh, the nostalgia of it all!) Courtney logged four weeks at the top in 2016 with “Fire”, which remains his biggest hit to date. New at #37, with their second top 40 single from Come Tomorrow, the Dave Matthews Band is in with “Again And Again”. The group last made my top ten in late 2009 with “You And Me”, reaching #9. Bishop Briggs lands one notch lower at #38 with “Baby”, which marks her third entry to chart this year, following “Dream” (#15) and “White Flag” (#24). Finally, at #39, KT Tunstall scores her first top 40 entry in nearly eight years with “The River”. It was twelve years ago that Tunstall spent two weeks at #1 with “Black Horse And The Cherry Tree”, her only chart-topper to date.
