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.

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2016: Part Five, 5-1

All the top tunes from the year that was.

All the top tunes from the year that was.

Are you ready for my top five songs of 2016? I sure am. Well, I hope I am. I charted them all for lengthy periods of time…

Three solo males, one solo female and a group remain on our quest to the top of the charts, but only one can make it to #1. It is now time to see where they 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.

05. BASTILLE, “Good Grief” (723 chart points)
Writer(s): Dan Smith
Album: Wild World
Label: Capitol
Peak: #1 for three weeks
Weeks: 24+

This English band knows the top spot quite well on my personal chart, but their two previous #1 songs, “Pompeii” (2013) and “Of The Night” (2014), couldn’t get beyond a second week at the summit. That changed this year with the release of this song, which quickly topped my chart and stayed there for three weeks in July and August. It also topped the Alternative radio chart for a week in November. It’s too early to tell where “Blame” will place on my 2017 list, but it’s making some solid gains so far.

04. ADELE, “When We Were Young” (737 chart points)
Writer(s): Adele, Tobias Jesso Jr.
Album: 25
Label: XL/Columbia
Peak: #1 for five weeks
Weeks: 26

It was one of the biggest chart crimes of the year; no, not on my own chart, but on the CHR/Top 40 radio chart. After “Hello” soared to #1 in just five weeks, this gorgeous follow-up single stalled out at #11. #11! The shade of it all! However, it did make it to the top spot on my personal top 40 for five enchanting weeks, making it one of four #1 hits (so far) from her latest era. A fifth single from the album could extend her streak in the new year, but we’ll have to see if that actually occurs. I hope it does.

03. BARNS COURTNEY, “Fire” (739 chart points)
Writer(s): Barns Courtney, David Jackson
Album: TBA
Label: Capitol
Peak: #1 for four weeks
Weeks: 29

A faster turnover rate meant no songs topped 30 or more weeks in the top 40 during 2016. So, Courtney’s run of 29 gives his excellent song a bit of cred in the longevity department. Just over a year ago, it was included in the trailer and the soundtrack to the film Burnt, and while the movie’s flame faded away, “Fire” had a second life at Alternative and Triple A radio in 2016, a top five hit at the latter format. While I wish it was bigger, and got a fair chance at Top 40 airplay, Courtney’s song is still hot.

02. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, “Can’t Stop The Feeling” (755 chart points)
Writer(s): Justin Timberlake, Max Martin, Shellback
Album: Trolls (Soundtrack)
Label: RCA
Peak: #1 for five weeks
Weeks: 26

In the runner-up position on my Top 100 of 2016, a track that you couldn’t escape for a time over the summer. Regardless of where you heard it, and I imagine it was spun at a few million Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and weddings this year, you just had to dance along to that catchy little tune. Timberlake started off 2016 with a quick top ten song in “Drink You Away”, but the enormous success of his soundtrack hit makes him one of the top artists of the year when total points are added up. If “Can’t” held up in the middle portion of my list for slightly longer, it probably would’ve had an extra week or two to propel it to #1 for the year.

01. WRABEL, “11 Blocks” (765 chart points)
Writer(s): Alex Hope, Wrabel
Album: TBA
Label: Epic
Peak: #1 for five weeks
Weeks: 25+
2016 Chart Run: 37-32-28-23-15-13-7-5-3-3-11111-3-3-3-5-6-7-11-13-17-21-(2017 Chart Year)

“11 blocks from my door to your doorstep…”

I first heard those words on the morning of June 3 while prepping the next episode of Train Tracks, a SiriusXM show, hosted by Train lead singer Pat Monahan, that airs on channel The Pulse every weekend. I was actually pretty lucky to hear it early. I fell in love with it on the first listen, the perfect combination of an intriguing personal lyric with a very talented vocalist. I was pretty sure early on that it was going to top my personal chart, but my Top 100 of 2016? Couldn’t have anticipated that one…

It was close up until the very end: only ten points separated #1 and #2 this year. In fact, the status of those two songs was just decided on the last chart of the period. Needless to say, it could’ve easily gone the other way, if the right factors were in play.

However, I’m very happy with the result. I’m just disappointed that more people didn’t get a chance to hear it! With a peak of #11 (clever one, Epic) on Hot AC radio, it should’ve done way better. Alas, the situation has happened before. Well, I’m really looking forward to Wrabel’s new music, whenever it comes out, because the feelings are going to be real. Congrats to Wrabel and his team on a great 2016, and best wishes for an even better 2017.

“11 Blocks”, my #1 song of 2016, now forever enshrined in the Adam’s Top 40 Hall Of Fame.

Fun facts about this year’s #1:
* This marks the first time an artist recording for Epic Records has my #1 song of the year since 2009, when “You Found Me” by The Fray topped that year’s survey. (The only other Epic #1 on one of my year-end charts was back in 2005, when “What Happens Tomorrow” by Duran Duran led the list.)
* “11 Blocks” debuted on the chart dated June 12, 2016, which is the latest a #1 song of the year has entered my survey during the calendar year. The previous record was in 2007, when that year’s #1, “If You’re Gonna Leave” by singer Emerson Hart, was a debut on the chart dated April 22, 2007.
* Due to that late entry, Wrabel’s 25 weeks that counted towards the Top 100 of 2016 represents the fewest number of weeks for a #1 song of the year since 2003. The biggest hit that year, Jason Mraz‘s “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry)”, totaled a small 21 weeks in the top 40.
* As previously mentioned, “11 Blocks” reached the top of my chart in its 11th week. It also spent a week at #11 in November. I guess we all love some fun with numbers…

Thanks to all of you for checking out my Top 100 of 2016! Have a great Hanukkah and Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

RADIO REPORT: POP! Goes The Picks (September 2016)

Radio Report - September 2016

It’s time once again to analyze the airwaves and find out if your favorite new releases will be lighting up your local station’s playlist during the month. Which tunes will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here’s a selection of new singles being serviced in September in this month’s Radio Report.

CHR/TOP 40

MARTIN GARRIX & BEBE REXHA – “In The Name Of Love” (RCA, September 6)
Album: TBA
Past CHR History: Garrix reached #12 in 2014 with the largely-instrumental dance hit “Animals”, while “Don’t Look Down” hit #31 in 2015. Some of Rexha’s featured appearances have charted well, but her main-credited songs usually hit a brick wall in the top 30.

JORDAN FISHER – “Lookin’ Like That” (Hollywood, September 13)
Album: Jordan Fisher – EP (2016)
Past CHR History: “All About Us” topped Adam’s Top 40 for a week, and despite a huge radio push, that song just didn’t get tagged or sell enough to warrant a run beyond the mid-20’s at CHR radio. I’m rooting for Fisher to get that big radio smash later this year.

ZARA LARSSON – “Ain’t My Fault” (Epic, September 20)
Album: TBA
Past CHR History: Her label was able to break “Never Forget You” at the format earlier this year, hitting #5, but a reissue of “Lush Life” lost its momentum upon reaching the top 40 (after an initial run outside the top 50 last fall.) We’ll see if this has a solid climb.

ALTERNATIVE

THE GRISWOLDS – “Out Of My Head” (Wind-up/Concord, September 13)
Album: TBA
Past Alternative History: These Aussie rockers made the top 20 in 2014 with the catchy “Beware The Dog”, a #9 hit on Adam’s Top 40, while “If You Wanna Stay” stalled in the 30’s for two to three months. “Out” has already seen some early action from the panel.

THE SCORE – “Unstoppable” (Republic, September 13)
Album: Unstoppable – EP (2016)
Past Alternative History: “Oh My Love” (which reached the Hot AC top 40) and “On And On” both failed to chart here. However, a number of syncs for this release, including YouTube’s Dude Perfect series, have helped it to surge in both sales and streaming stats.

FITZ & THE TANTRUMS – “Roll Up” (Elektra/Atlantic, September 20)
Album: Fitz & The Tantrums (2016)
Past Alternative History: Leadoff single “HandClap” recently high-fived the top five, peaking at #4. They led this chart with two #1 songs in a row, “Out Of My League” (2013, two weeks) and “The Walker” (2014, one week). Can they “roll up” to the top spot again?

TRIPLE A

FLORENCE + THE MACHINE – “Wish That You Were Here” (Republic, September 6)
Album: Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children (Soundtrack) (2016)
Past AAA History: Just last year, the English band sent two singles (“What Kind Of Man” and “Ship To Wreck”) to the top of the list here, so there’s a good chance that this soundtrack cut will post some solid numbers. The Tim Burton film opens on September 30.

STING – “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You” (A&M/Interscope, September 6)
Album: 57th & 9th (2016)
Past AAA History: Though the format plays plenty of his tracks with The Police and his first few solo albums, there should be some interest in this song. In the 2000’s, his hits here include “Desert Rose” (#1 for four weeks, 2000) and “Send Your Love” (#5, 2003).

BARNS COURTNEY – “Glitter & Gold” (Capitol, September 19)
Album: Hands – EP (2016)
Past AAA History: Courtney’s “Fire”, a former #1 on Adam’s Top 40, reached #2 at the format. That single is still making its way up the Alternative chart, where it sits in the top 20. Can one of my favorite newcomers of 2016 get his second U.S. radio hit? I hope so.

Chart Notes:

  • The battle between Bastille and Passenger doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. The former’s “Good Grief” climbs 8-6 this week, while the latter’s “Somebody’s Love” leapfrogs over it to #5, up four places. Both songs have been in the top 40 for just four weeks, an incredible achievement for both acts. Who’s going to end up with this summer’s biggest hit? We may find out in the next few weeks. “Good” sits below the top ten on Alternative and Triple A radio, while “Somebody’s” is in the top 50 at the latter format.
  • This week’s Biggest Mover belongs to Wrabel, up 23-15 with “11 Blocks”. It’s his fifth week in the countdown, and it’ll likely be just a couple more weeks until the song hits the top ten. Also, for you block enthusiasts out there, this top 40 entry is the first “block” single to rank on my chart since 2002’s “Jenny From The Block” by Jennifer Lopez. Believe it or not, that hit was released on the same label as “11 Blocks”. The more you know…
  • The only debut this week is a song that’s already been a big international hit, and it’s about to break the top 50 on pop radio here in the States. “This Girl” is by French DJ Kungs and Australian trio Cookin’ On 3 Burners, entering at #40. It’s the first time on my personal chart for both acts.
  • Next week, we could see Mary Lambert back in the top 40 for the first time since her top ten “Secrets”, or newcomers like Adam Friedman, Hailey Knox and Weathers might make their chart debut. Regardless of what happens, I’ll cover it. I hope to see you back next Sunday!

Chart Notes:

  • The highest of this week’s three new entries is from a chart regular. In fact, this is only one of two artists in the top 40 to be listed on my first chart from September 1999. Back then, it was a featured appearance on Santana‘s “Smooth”. Now, Rob Thomas has his 24th top 40 hit combined on my chart with “Pieces”, new at #38. It’s from his The Great Unknown set, an album that’s now given him three hits.
  • Country duo Florida Georgia Line grab their third crossover hit on my chart with “H.O.L.Y.”, debuting at #39 this week. The song is currently surging in the top five on their core radio format, while it’s also approaching the top 40 at Hot AC. It’s going to be some time before they reach the #3 peak of “Cruise” from 2013, their biggest hit to date.
  • The last time Serena Ryder was on my chart, she hit #17 with the song “Stompa”. Three years later, she returns with “Got Your Number”, new at #40 this week. It’s already seeing some good gains at Hot AC radio in her native Canada.

Chart Notes:

  • Troye Sivan has one of the biggest songs on my chart so far this year with “Youth”, a three-week #1 that currently falls to #37, down a spot from last week. This week, he lands my Highest Debut at #35 with an updated version of “Wild”. The new mix features singer Alessia Cara. Both of those tracks (“Wild” in its original form) can be found on Blue Neighbourhood, which Sivan released last year.
  • The New York duo Phantogram had a big top five Alternative hit in 2014 with “Fall In Love”. That song didn’t quite make my chart, but their new single is definitely catching on with me. “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” comes in at #36. It’s off to a great start at radio, and should continue to do well through the late summer and early fall.
  • Following their international smash “7 Years”, the Danish quartet Lukas Graham is hitting U.S. radio with “Mama Said”. It’s a new entry at #38 this week. The song interpolates the popular “It’s The Hard Knock Life” from the musical Annie.
  • Lastly, at #39, is the third top 40 single from The 1975‘s I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it album. “Somebody Else” follows “The Sound”, which recently hit #3 and comes in at #31 this week.

Chart Notes:

  • Two of the biggest acts to debut on my personal chart in 2013 return with some massive new songs. The singer/songwriter born in the English town of Brighton claims the Highest Debut of the two, coming in at #29. He’s four-time Adam’s Top 40 chart-topper Passenger, and his single is “Somebody’s Love”. It goes for Triple A adds later this month. His new album is titled Young As The Morning Old As The Sea, and it’s due on September 23. Needless to say, I’m very excited to hear it.
  • The only other debut this week is from rockers Bastille, the English quartet that has a pair of chart-toppers thus far. That could change to three if “Good Grief” makes it to the top, but for now, it’s in at #31. Their new album, Wild World, is set to come out later this year. What kind of weird science awaits us on the new set? I’m sure we’ll find out soon.
  • Next week is looking like a really active chart, with the potential for as many as six debuts! There’s a mix of established acts and newcomers that are waiting in the wings, so check back to see who makes it into the 40.
