ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #20-11

As 2019 and the decade draw to a close, it’s time for the annual Top 100 of the year! According to my tabulations, these titles ranked as the most successful on my personal chart. The year was full of love, found and lost, from “Higher Love” and “Lover” to “Somebody You Loved” and more. Time was the essence, whether it was “All The Time” or “The Last Time”, and the light guided the way towards the upper half of the list, including “Light On” and “Lights Up”.

So, come along with “ME!” as I count down the hits, won’t you? Let’s get some numbers rolling…

The 2019 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 2, 2018 to the chart dated November 24, 2018. Peaks listed reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, a song with the higher peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks at a song’s peak position and the amount of time charted in the top 40. 167 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a decrease from the 171 that did so in 2018.

He’s also sure to do really well on my end-of-the-decade chart with at least one of his songs, which will be revealed after the holidays. Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” soars from 33-19 in its second week in the top 40, giving it the Biggest Mover title on this week’s chart.

Coldplay earns this week’s Biggest Mover title with a 33-22 jump for “Orphans”. New at #33, Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” leads a pack of three debuts, as it prepares to impact at Top 40 radio on Tuesday. A collaboration from JP Saxe and Julia Michaels comes in at #38, titled “If The World Was Ending”, with Saxe scoring his first appearance on my list. Keane‘s latest single at Triple A radio (which impacts this month) also bounces in at #40. “Stupid Things” gives the band three songs in the top 40 off their most recent release Cause And Effect.

It’s also been a busy week for new entries, with four of them blasting into the top 40. Kesha and Big Freedia lead things off at #31 with “Raising Hell”, the first single from Kesha’s forthcoming album High Road, due January 10. Coldplay‘s “Orphans” is in at #33, one of two new cuts released on Thursday from their highly-anticipated double album Everyday Life, due November 22. Louis Tomlinson earns his fifth solo top 40 single with “We Made It”, bowing at #38. It and “Kill My Mind” (at #36) will appear on his debut solo album Walls, due January 31. Finally, at #39, Picture This returns to the chart with “One Night”, a song that’s already hit the top five in their native Ireland. It’s the band’s third single to make my list.

Chart Notes:

  • Zara Larsson scores her first #1 song on my personal chart with “All The Time”, soaring from 4-1 this week. She previously peaked at #5 late last year with “Ruin My Life”. The new radio singles for Taylor Swift and Why Don’t We tie for the week’s Biggest Mover, with “Lover” and “What Am I”, respectively, climbing seven notches. There’s quite a bit of debut action at the bottom of the chart, led by Lizzo‘s “Good As Hell” at #34. The 2016 release is now a solid sales and streaming hit thanks to Lizzo’s heightened profile and a recent award show performance. The other three entries land between #38 and #40 on my list, with “Let It Be Me” from Steve Aoki and the Backstreet Boys at #38, followed by “I’ll Be There” by Walk Off The Earth just behind them and “Kill My Mind” by Louis Tomlinson anchoring the bottom of the survey. This marks the first chart appearance for producer Aoki to date. The first two titles impact at the Hot AC format at some point this month.

Chart Notes:

  • Climbing from 3-1 this week, “Timebomb” becomes the fifth #1 on my personal chart for the Ohio band Walk The Moon. They last led my top 40 in late 2017 with “One Foot”, which had a six-week run at the summit. Hot singles from Kacey Musgraves, P!nk and Rob Thomas move up the most positions on the current update, with Thomas’s “One Less Day (Dying Day)” climbing the furthest, up a huge 11 spots to #26. John Mayer‘s “I Guess I Just Feel Like” leads a pack of three debuts on the countdown, coming in at #34. This track follows “New Light”, which held in the #2 spot for two weeks on my list last year. Billie Eilish scores her first chart single at #37 with the song “When The Party’s Over”, one of two active radio tracks from the highly-anticipated album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, due at the end of the month. As “When” soars at the Top 40 format, the other tune, “Bury A Friend”, is nearing the top 20 on the Alternative chart. Finally, at #38, Julia Michaels and Niall Horan team up for the collaboration “What A Time”, the lead radio single from the former artist’s recent EP Inner Monologue, Pt. 1. The song recently went for adds at the Top 40 format during the same week as Eilish’s record noted above, earning over three dozen adds in a week.
