ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #40-31

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.

The highest, landing at #34, is the first chart entry in just over five years for the English quartet Keane. “The Way I Feel” marks their 17th top 40 single since the fall of 2004 when they first entered with “Somewhere Only We Know”, which reached #7. The group’s “Silenced By The Night”, their sole chart-topper to date, spent four weeks at the summit in 2012. American acts X Ambassadors and OneRepublic also score their latest top 40 songs at #37 and #40, respectively, with “Hold You Down” and “Rescue Me”. Though the former act has made the top five without hitting the top, the latter’s been to #1 once: they spent three weeks there in December 2007 and January 2008 with the Timbaland-assisted “Apologize”.

Chart Notes:

  • Earning a record-breaking ninth #1 single on my personal chart, Taylor Swift‘s “ME!” (featuring Brendon Urie) rises from 2-1 this week. It’s the first track to be released from her forthcoming album, due sometime later this year. Urie also ranks at #1 for the second week in a row: “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” by his band Panic! At The Disco, last week’s chart-topper, drops to #3. Further down, Swift’s one-time rival Katy Perry earns this week’s Highest Debut at #28 with “Never Really Over”, which also scores a splashy top 30 debut on the Hot AC and Top 40 charts. Its entry marks Perry’s first song to appear in my top 40 this year, though her collaborations with Daddy Yankee and Zedd received solid airplay at several radio formats in the last few months. Also checking in with a notable debut at #32, “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” brings the legendary Elton John back to the top 40 with newcomer Taron Egerton, who portrays John in the new movie Rocketman. In the process, John, who is now 72, becomes one of the oldest performers to enter my list: he’s about six months younger than Rod Stewart was when his updated version of “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” (with DNCE) debuted in September 2017. Finally, at #40, P!nk and Chris Stapleton make the top 40 with a hit off the former’s album Hurts 2B Human called “Love Me Anyway”. The song is receiving airplay from several stations on the Country radio panel.

Chart Notes:

  • After staying at #2, Panic! At The Disco‘s “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” finally sneaks into the #1 spot this week, with leader Brendon Urie also appearing as a featured performer on the runner-up title, Taylor Swift‘s “ME!”, climbing from #4. Urie joins singers such as Jamie Scott and Nate Ruess in having simultaneous top three entries as both a soloist and with a duo or group: in 2014, the former’s “My Hurricane” ranked in the region alongside Graffiti6‘s “The Bridge”, and a year prior, the latter’s featured spot on P!nk‘s “Just Give Me A Reason” joined fun.‘s track “Carry On” at the top. James Arthur‘s “Falling Like The Stars” earns this week’s Highest Debut at #39, his fifth top 40 single to date. The song recently replaced “From The Grave” as Arthur’s current single at Hot AC radio, which stalled out at the bottom of the top 50 a few weeks back. A newcomer named Christian Paul also climbs into the top 40 at #40 with “Strong”. It’s closing in on the top 50 at Top 40 radio, which will also mark his first chart appearance there.
