The single remains in the top 40 on both the AC and Country radio charts. Dean Lewis has this week’s Highest Debut, landing at #38 with “Stay Awake”. It’s his third title to reach my top 40 and the follow-up to “7 Minutes”, which stays at #8 again on my latest list. Coming in a notch lower at #39, it’s the fourth top 40 hit for The Strumbellas. “I’ll Wait” follows “Salvation”, which recently got as high as #4. Both of these debut songs should do well on here through the summer months.

All the top tunes from the year that was.

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2016: Part One, 100-51

All the top tunes from the year that was.

All the top tunes from the year that was.

As 2016 draws to a close, it’s time for the annual Top 100 of the year! Whether you were listening to tropical house or Cam’s “Burning House”, music made a big impact on all of us this year. Chances are you were probably streaming your favorite hits rather than purchasing them in 2016, though we still spin some on the turntable now and then. This year, the deaths of David Bowie, Glenn Frey, Leonard Cohen, Maurice White and Prince, among many other musicians, were overwhelming at times. A healthy dose of music likely got you through the political season, regardless of who you voted for. (It’s okay, I didn’t vote him either, but I did vote for plenty of top artists and songs this year.) Music will always be there, and so will numbers, and thus, I shall marry the two again, but without the vows and the cake, etc.

What was the “Sound” of 2016? Look no further than chart songs by Alabama Shakes, Disturbed, Shawn Hook and The 1975. There was a whole lot to “Like” about top ten hits from Captain Cuts/Nateur, Gwen Stefani, Jordan Fisher, P!nk and ZAYN. I traveled to a “Goldmine” and an “Oasis”, courtesy of Colbie Caillat and A Great Big World, respectively, and turned a “Hello” to Adele into a “Hell No” to Ingrid Michaelson. It was a “Brand New” year, Ben Rector would agree, and there was much new music to love. So, let’s start the countdown and find out where my favorite songs of the year rank…

The 2016 chart year encompasses the period of 52 charts from the list dated December 6, 2015 to the list dated November 27, 2016. Peaks provided reflect the highest position reached by the final chart of the survey year. For any ties in points, a song with a higher peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks stayed in the top 40. 168 songs in total had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, an increase from the 165 that did so in 2015.

Chart Notes:

  • In what may be the least-surprising announcement of the year, for its second time, Adele has one more #1 single to add to her files on my personal chart. Leaping from #4 to #1, “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” is the third consecutive #1 off her 25 album, which matches the same number of chart-toppers she had from 21. No artist or band has done that before in the time I’ve been compiling my survey. Also, “Send” represents her seventh #1 overall, which ties her with Coldplay for a heated battle in the category of Most #1 Songs. (The band is currently climbing with “Up&Up”.) What else can I say? She is still the queen.
  • This week’s Highest Debut belongs to FRANKIE, who comes in at #38 with “New Obsession”. It’s featured on an EP titled Dreamstate. Only three chart hits with “obsession” in their titles have gone top 40 on CHR radio since that listing began in 1973, and should this title make it four, it’ll be the first since another Frankie — Frankie J, that is. The Mexican singer had his biggest hit with “Obsession (No Es Amor)”, which went to #3 in the spring of 2005. (Mariah Carey did hit #8 with her “Obsessed” in 2009, but with its use as a verb rather than a noun, I’ve counted it separately.)
  • Swedish singer LÉON makes her chart debut this week at #39. She may be “Tired Of Talking”, but I think she knows that a lot of people aren’t “tired” of hearing her music. In fact, more of them will be exposed to it when her first radio single goes for Hot AC adds in two weeks. You can find “Tired” on her Treasure EP, which has done big streaming numbers.
  • Lastly, at #40, is the duo A Great Big World and “Won’t Stop Running”. It follows “Oasis”, which went to #3 earlier this year. This is the first “running” title to sprint onto the survey in three years. Do you remember “We Come Running” by the band Youngblood Hawke? The top ten Alternative hit peaked at #34 on my chart in early 2013.
