ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #80-71

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.

80. SHAWN MENDES, “Lost In Japan”
Album: Shawn Mendes
Label: Island/Republic
Peak: #3 (2018)
2018 YE: #60

79. WESTLIFE, “Better Man”
Album: Spectrum
Label: Virgin EMI (UK)
Peak: #15

78. NOAH KAHAN, “Cynic”
Album: Busyhead
Label: Republic
Peak: #14

77. GOO GOO DOLLS, “Miracle Pill”
Album: Miracle Pill
Label: Warner
Peak: #14

76. SIGRID, “Sucker Punch”
Album: Sucker Punch
Label: Island/Republic
Peak: #7
2018 YE: #80

75. DEAN LEWIS, “Be Alright”
Album: A Place We Knew
Label: Island/Republic
Peak: #1 for four weeks (2018)
2018 YE: #24

74. MAROON 5, “Memories”
Album: (single only)
Label: 222/Interscope
Peak: #10

73. JOHN MAYER, “I Guess I Just Feel Like”
Album: (single only)
Label: Columbia
Peak: #13

72. MAGGIE ROGERS, “Burning”
Album: Heard It In A Past Life
Label: Debay Sounds/Capitol
Peak: #13

71. THE SCRIPT, “The Last Time”
Album: Sunsets & Full Moons
Label: Columbia

It’s the second song to chart from his forthcoming album Fine Line: “Lights Up” rises to #8. A new collaboration by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, who last charted together with 2013’s “Say Something”, comes in at #36. We’ll see if “Fall On Me”, which will be performed at tomorrow’s American Music Awards, can reach or exceed the #2 peak of their prior hit. In at #37, Billie Eilish‘s “Everything I Wanted” charts concurrently with her brother’s “Shelter”, as Finneas‘s track rises from 25-24. Lastly, the #40 song belongs to Maggie Rogers, who debuts with “Love You For A Long Time”. Rogers’s highest-charting song to date, “Light On”, spent a couple of weeks at #3 in December and January.

It’s also been a busy week for new entries, with four of them blasting into the top 40. Kesha and Big Freedia lead things off at #31 with “Raising Hell”, the first single from Kesha’s forthcoming album High Road, due January 10. Coldplay‘s “Orphans” is in at #33, one of two new cuts released on Thursday from their highly-anticipated double album Everyday Life, due November 22. Louis Tomlinson earns his fifth solo top 40 single with “We Made It”, bowing at #38. It and “Kill My Mind” (at #36) will appear on his debut solo album Walls, due January 31. Finally, at #39, Picture This returns to the chart with “One Night”, a song that’s already hit the top five in their native Ireland. It’s the band’s third single to make my list.
