Adam’s Top 100 of 2021: The Complete List

2021: it was the rollercoaster ride that we didn’t need after the year that was 2020. There were plenty of strange events that occurred in the last twelve months, but here’s one that I think we can celebrate for the time being. Yes, my Top 100 of 2021 is now available below.

When it came to the music on my personal chart, 2021 was a particularly good year for good song titles: six of them rank in the top 100, including “Damn It Feels Good To Be Me”, “Good 4 U” and “We’re Good”. We also felt the force of three powerful pop releases: “Higher Power”, “Solar Power” and “Your Power”. Of course, there was a lot of love on the charts as well, including singles like “Can You Handle My Love??”, “Love Again”, “Talk About Love” and more. From “Cloudy Day” to “Remember That Night?” and “Drivers License” to “Last Train Home”, there was much to discover and enjoy on my record player, the radio, streaming platforms and, of course, TikTok.

So, after crunching all the numbers up, here are the top 100 songs based on my weekly personal chart:

The 2021 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 6, 2020 to the chart dated November 28, 2021. Peaks noted for each entry reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, an entry with the highest 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. 162 entries had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a small decrease from the 166 that did so in 2020. A total of 14 titles reached the #1 spot for at least one week this year, up one from the 13 that achieved the feat in 2020.

Chart Notes:

  • Olivia Rodrigo holds at #1 for a third week on my personal chart with “Driver’s License”, which continues its fantastic run atop both the Billboard Hot 100 and Top 40 radio chart. She leads a top three comprised of only solo women, with tracks by Ava Max (#2) and Taylor Swift (#3) next in line for the top spot. Three new singles come into the top 40: at #32, Maroon 5 has the Highest Debut with “Beautiful Mistakes”. Two spots lower, Elle King and Miranda Lambert party on at #34 with “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”. Finally, at #40, the new duo Silk Sonic (a collaborative project from Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak) enters with “Leave The Door Open”.

P!nk and her 9-year-old daughter Willow Sage Hart have the Highest Debut of the week at #39 with “Cover Me In Sunshine”, which is beginning to pick up some airplay at the Hot AC format in both the U.S. and Canada, while The Strumbellas enter at #40 with the CanCon-approved “Greatest Enemy”.

Chart Notes:

  • Tones And I spends a second week at #1 on my personal chart with “Fly Away”, leading a particularly good week for women on the survey: 50% of the top 40 is sung exclusively by female performers, and that doesn’t include another three collaborations of mixed genders. Further down, Jessia claims the Biggest Mover of the week with “I’m Not Pretty”, rising from 29-22. All three debuts are also done by women: Dua Lipa at #34 with “We’re Good”, Daya at #38 with “Bad Girl” and Serena Ryder at #40 with “Better Now”.

Chart Notes:

  • With her second #1 tune on my personal chart, Tones And I jumps from 2-1 with “Fly Away”. Her international hit “Dance Monkey” spent six weeks at the top in 2019. Recent radio singles from Olivia Rodrigo and Sabrina Carpenter are tied for the Biggest Mover, with both advancing seven spots this week. Three tracks are new to the top 40, led by the recent collaboration from Sam Fischer and Demi Lovato at #33. “What Other People Say” impacts at the Hot AC radio format next week. Further down, chart mainstay Scott Helman lands at #38 with “Good Problems”, while “Remember That Night?” by newcomer Sara Kays bows at #40.

Chart Notes:

  • Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa might be occupying the #1 spot on my personal chart for a fourth and final week with “Prisoner”, which is the same length of time that “Midnight Sky” held at the top. Tones And I, their latest challenger, climbs from 4-2 with “Fly Away”. If the song reaches the summit next week, it’ll become her second #1 single on my list. Four tracks are tied for the Biggest Mover of the week, all up six positions. For debuts, it’s one word titles only: Duncan Laurence bows at #37 with “Arcade”, while Sabrina Carpenter‘s “Skin” checks in at #39.

Chart Notes:

Four additional tracks moved up at least six positions. There are three solid debuts in the top 40 this week: Dayglow‘s “Close To You” is the top new entry at #36, followed just behind by Brynn Elliott‘s “Tell Me I’m Pretty” at #37 and the antithetical “I’m Not Pretty” by Jessia at #40.
