ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2015: #100-81

Pop 'til you drop.

Pop ’til you drop.

Here it is, the annual countdown of the top 100 hits based on my weekly personal charts from the first week of December in 2014 to the last week of November in 2015. It was another great year for both chart veterans and newcomers, novelty hits and timeless ballads, country, pop, rock, and everything in between. We have them all, from “Hello” to “No Good In Goodbye”. Now, it is time to say “hello” to the Top 100 and “goodbye” to the year that was 2015.

In the first 20 songs on the countdown, our entries include a boy band who just gave their last live performance before a hiatus, a high school student with some boy trouble, the first fully a cappella track on the pop radio survey since the mid-90’s, a singer and songwriter that kept it smooth on my very first chart in 1999, and a bunch of singles that aren’t Cheap Trick, Lionel Richie and/or Morris Albert remakes. Confused? Let’s clear it all up, from #100 to #81:

RADIO REPORT: POP! Goes The Picks (July 2015) (Part Two)

It’s time once again to analyze the airwaves and find out if your favorite new singles will be lighting up the national charts during the month. Which tracks will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here’s a small selection of new songs being serviced in July on the Alternative and Triple A formats in the second part of this month’s Radio Report:

ALTERNATIVE (*) and TRIPLE A (**)

Brandon Flowers
BRANDON FLOWERS – “Lonely Town” (July 14) (*)
Label: Island/Republic
It was very disappointing to see “Can’t Deny My Love” being, well, denied entrance into the Alternative top 40 after a tough battle earlier this year. With the second single from his The Desired Effect album, 34-year-old Flowers appeals for the format’s support with another tasty new wave inspired cut with a lovely kick of brass for good measure. It might be his only chance to save this era.

Death Cab For Cutie
DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE – “The Ghosts Of Beverly Drive” (July 14) (*)
Label: Atlantic
With “Black Sun” having recently gone recurrent at the format after climbing as high as #2, the Washington trio follows it up with a spooky single about a prior relationship from Gibbard’s past. Beverly Drive, of course, refers to the street that runs through the California cities of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. It is a needed change of pace and should pump that pedal as the fall approaches.

Family Of The Year
FAMILY OF THE YEAR – “Make You Mine” (July 14) (* + **)
Label: Warner Bros./Nettwerk
It’s been quite a ride for this quartet and their single “Hero” over the past three years. Originally an Alternative and Triple A hit in the spring of 2013, months after the summer 2012 release of their album Loma Vista, the track returned last summer when it was used to promote the film Boyhood. Hopefully, their latest single also sticks around, a classic California record that is burning hot.

Jarryd James
JARRYD JAMES – “Do You Remember?” (July 14) (**)
Label: Interscope
Six months ago, James was totally unknown to fair amount of people and quietly released a single that was produced by the noted Joel Little, best known for his work with singer Lorde. Then, he pulled off an awesome feat: a #2 chart peak in his native Australia without any major label backing. Of course, one has picked it up for a U.S. release. It’s a record to watch for the fall, so stay tuned.

Lianne La Havas
LIANNE LA HAVAS – “What You Don’t Do” (July 14) (**)
Label: Warner Bros.
The English singer/songwriter from London got the critics buzzing with her debut album from 2012, Is Your Love Big Enough? It was a top five success in the U.K. despite a trio of singles that stalled underneath the top 100 in that country, while both the songs and the album went largely unnoticed here. Her album Blood will be seeping into our musical veins later this month. It’s a winner.

Muse
MUSE – “Mercy” (July 21) (**)
Label: Warner Bros.
From the concept album Drones, which recently became the trio’s first #1 album on the Billboard 200, this single is already doing well on streaming platforms and will no doubt bolt its way up the Alternative survey in mere weeks. However, the adds date listed is only for Triple A radio, where “Dead Inside” was just a mid-charting hit at best. Nevertheless, it’s a great choice from the effort.

Walk Off The Earth
WALK OFF THE EARTH – “Hold On (The Break)” (July 21) (**)
Label: Columbia
Rather than ruling the world with their last single, this Canadian band was ruling the headlines when singer Sarah Blackwood and her son were kicked off a United Airlines flight because of his fussy behavior. Luckily, since the story has faded, the quintet is able to return to what they do best and perform. “Hold” is a mellower choice, but one that lends itself well to a potential crossover hit.

Ryan Corn
RYAN CORN – “White Flag” (July 28) (**)
Label: Curb
Missouri singer/songwriter Corn got his first taste of radio play last year when an original song called “Wonderful Things” briefly touched the top 40 at the Triple A format before Christmas. Now, he’s heading back to radio with a remake that’s become a staple in his recent sets, “White Flag”, originally a hit for Dido in 2003. Corn puts a nice pop/rock spin on the track. I’ll be rooting for it.

TURN IT UP MONDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (May 18)

Tearin' up the album chart.

Tearin’ up the album chart.

We’re piloting another pass into the pop stratosphere with a Monday date full of fresh releases. (NOTE: some items may not be available until Monday night based on label response time, but most of them are up now.) Here are the albums and singles that are new in stores for the week of May 18:

  • Having been in and out of the top ten on iTunes as a pre-order for weeks on end now, it’s very likely that Blurryface from twenty | one | pilots, the duo of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, will be the top entry on the Billboard 200. Looking at the potential of a top five debut and even a shot at #1, it would be a big boost from their last set, 2013’s Vessel, which peaked at #58. Lead single “Tear In My Heart” is a current top ten on Alternative radio. (iTunes)
  • Russian-born and German-raised DJ/producer Zedd may be in free fall on the CHR survey with “I Want You To Know”, his recent release with Disney star and singer Selena Gomez, but he’ll be back on playlists soon enough with a new Jon Bellion collaboration, “Beautiful Now”. Meanwhile, True Colors, his first album since 2012, is in stores and looking at a larger debut than Clarity. (iTunes)
  • With 25 years of music and 18 number one songs atop the Hot 100, Mariah Carey is one of the biggest-selling artists of all-time, dahling. #1 To Infinity is an updated collection of those chart-topping singles and also includes “Infinity”, which Carey recently performed on the Billboard Music Awards. It went to several radio formats earlier this month. (iTunes)
  • Led by “Can’t Deny My Love”, a recent entry on the Alternative survey that looks to have under-performed at the format, Brandon Flowers is back for his second solo effort away from The Killers, an album titled The Desired Effect. It may not do as well as 2010’s Flamingo, but it’s sure to attract his core fans. (iTunes)
  • 21-year-old newcomer Kelsea Ballerini has her first top ten single on Country radio with “Love Me Like You Mean It”. Now, her first album, The First Time, is in stores. Given her Taylor Swift co-sign from earlier this year, it should debut decently. (iTunes)
  • Other releases out this week include: Brantley Gilbert‘s Just As I Am (Platinum Edition) (iTunes), Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!‘s Get Lost, Find Yourself (iTunes), Coal Chamber‘s Rivals (iTunes), Faith No More‘s Sol Invictus (iTunes), Hot Chip‘s Why Make Sense? (iTunes), Jamie Foxx‘s Hollywood: A Story Of A Dozen Roses (iTunes), Kopecky‘s Drug For The Modern Age (iTunes), Life Of Dillon‘s Prologue (EP) (iTunes), Madisen Ward And The Mama Bear‘s Skeleton Crew (iTunes), Murs‘s Have A Nice Life (iTunes), Paul Weller‘s Saturns Pattern (iTunes), Rico Love‘s Turn The Lights On (iTunes), Sammy Hagar & The Circle‘s At Your Service (Live) (iTunes), Shamir‘s Ratchet (iTunes), Silverstein‘s I Am Alive In Everything I Touch (iTunes), The Milk Carton Kids‘s Monterey (iTunes), The Story So Far‘s The Story So Far (iTunes) and Whitesnake‘s The Purple Album (iTunes).

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week include:

  • “Bad Blood (Remix)”, singer Taylor Swift‘s new single featuring Kendrick Lamar. (iTunes)
  • “Go Big Or Go Home”, a new single from American Authors. (iTunes)
  • “Kick The Dust Up”, the new single from Country star Luke Bryan. (iTunes)
  • “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt…”, already selling well for Maroon 5. (iTunes)
  • “We Went”, new from Randy Houser. (iTunes)

Next Tuesday won’t be nearly as eventful as this Monday’s bunch of releases, but new albums from Alesso and Lifehouse are on the horizon, among others. A full preview is coming on Monday night.

Chart Notes:

  • In his fifth week on the chart, Martin Luke Brown reclaims the title of Biggest Mover with “Take Out Of Me”, up 22-16. You’ll be able to purchase Brown’s debut EP, named after his latest single, within the next week in most countries. Brown’s former top ten entry, “Nostalgia”, drops four notches to #38 this week as it hits the half-year mark at 26 weeks on. Way to go, Martin! Look for more new music later this year.
  • Remember this post of a month ago where I predicted six Country hits that could make the jump to pop radio? Well, guess I made some guesses. Two of those tracks climb aboard this week, including Sam Hunt‘s “Take Your Time”, in at #39. It is the first chart single for Hunt, who claims this week’s #1 single at the radio format. He previously led on that survey last year with “Leave The Night On”.
  • Also debuting this week is the second crossover single to make my chart for the duo Florida Georgia Line. Bowing in at #40, it’s “Sun Daze”. Last time around, they hit #3 with “Cruise” in a remix with rapper Nelly. The two are currently up in the top ten on the Country chart with “Sippin’ On Fire”.
  • Next week may see a debut from Adam Lambert and his new single, “Ghost Town”, as an instant impact, but how will he do against newcomers like Gavin James and Jakubi? Stay tuned!

Chart Notes:

  • After four weeks at #1, the big hit from Ellie Goulding, “Love Me Like You Do”, is knocked out of the top spot by a band of first-timers to the chart. English trio Years & Years advances 2-1 with their single “King”, a recent #1 hit in the United Kingdom. Royalty rightfully reigns atop the top 40 and becomes the highest “king” title to make my list, displacing 2010’s “King Of Anything” by Sara Bareilles, which peaked at #2.
  • Two newcomers are in with singles this week, the highest of which debuts at #39. The trio Jukebox The Ghost recently partnered with Cherrytree and Interscope Records, and their current single “Postcard” goes to radio next month. Though this marks their first time in my top 40, the band’s been around for over a decade. Look for it on the AAA airwaves soon.
  • A notch below them is Jason French, whose viral hit “You Just Want My Money” enters the chart at #40. It also goes to radio next month, but at the highly competitive CHR format. French is originally from the San Diego area and is currently in the process of recording a debut album (and perhaps making some nice “Money” along the way.)
