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.

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Kacey Musgraves and her song “Rainbow” on its fifth week at #1 on my survey, making it the longest-running chart-topper of the year thus far. 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.

Chart Notes:

  • Kacey Musgraves holds steady at #1 for the fourth week with “Rainbow”, which ties it with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s “Shallow” as the longest-running #1 song of the chart year to date. Another track off the A Star Is Born soundtrack, Lady Gaga’s solo cut “Always Remember Us This Way”, ties for the Biggest Mover of the week with a move from 34-28. The other two singles earning the title, Lauv and Troye Sivan‘s “I’m So Tired…” and Kelly Clarkson‘s “Broken & Beautiful”, move from 24-18 and 36-30, respectively. Landing his fourth chart single at #37, BANNERS has the Highest Debut with “Got It In You”. In the fall of 2016, he last charted here with “Into The Storm”, which got to #18. Just a notch lower, at #38, The Cranberries are in with “Wake Me When It’s Over”, the second song to make the top 40 from In The End. The radio single from it, “All Over Now”, climbs to a new peak of #5 this week.

Chart Notes:

  • Kacey Musgraves holds steady at #1 for the third week with “Rainbow”, but she’s facing some competition from Westlife‘s huge comeback: in addition to debuting at #38 with “Better Man”, they’re up from 4-2 with “Hello My Love”, their highest-charting entry on my list to date. On the move from 36-29, Noah Kahan takes the Biggest Mover title with “Mess”, his fourth top 40 single since 2017. Finally, this week’s Highest Debut, starting at #36, is a new soundtrack tune from the kelegendary artist herself, Kelly Clarkson. “Broken & Beautiful” is featured on the set from the animated movie UglyDolls, opening in May. Clarkson also voices one of the lead characters named Moxy. It’s the performer’s first soundtrack hit on my personal chart since 2004, when “Breakaway” (from The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement) peaked at #3.

Chart Notes:

  • Singer Kacey Musgraves holds onto the top spot for a second week with “Rainbow”, her first #1 on my personal chart. However, much of the action is smaller this time around, with the Biggest Mover climbing just five notches from last week: “Don’t Give Up On Me”, a new soundtrack cut from Five Feet Apart by Andy Grammer, takes the title with a move from 38-33. One debut lands in the top 40, another soundtrack song off the wildly popular set from A Star Is Born. Lady Gaga lands at #39 with “Always Remember Us This Way”. While “Shallow”, her duet with co-star Bradley Cooper, has a second life at several radio formats, this reactive cut has also earned unsolicited airplay in several big markets.
