  • Sam Fischer holds at #1 for a third week with his first top 40 hit on my personal chart, “This City”. With the Friday release of her new studio album Future Nostalgia, Dua Lipa picks up her third top 40 entry of the era with “Break My Heart”, landing at #31. You’ll also find her at #4 with “Physical” and at #11 with the former chart-topper “Don’t Start Now”. A Great Big World also glides into the countdown at #39 with “I Will Always Be There”, which saw an early release at some digital services several days ago (with a wide release planned for next month.) “Fall On Me”, the duo’s second collaboration with Christina Aguilera, reached #18 earlier this year. Be well and stay safe!

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #90-81

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.

90. NINA NESBITT, “Loyal To Me”
Album: The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change
Label: Cooking Vinyl/RED
Peak: #2 (2018)
2018 YE: #41

89. INGRID MICHAELSON, “Young And In Love”
Album: Stranger Songs
Label: Cabin 24/RED
Peak: #17

88. SCOTT HELMAN, “Everything Sucks”
Album: (single only)
Label: Warner
Peak: #7+

87. PASSENGER, “Survivors”
Album: Runaway
Label: Black Crow/Nettwerk
Peak: #18

86. ONEREPUBLIC, “Rescue Me”
Album: (single only)
Label: Mosley/Interscope
Peak: #16

85. ARIANA GRANDE, MILEY CYRUS & LANA DEL REY, “Don’t Call Me Angel”
Album: Charlie’s Angels (Soundtrack)
Label: Republic
Peak: #13

84. MAREN MORRIS, “Girl”
Album: Girl
Label: Columbia Nashville
Peak: #19

83. KATY PERRY, “Small Talk”
Album: (single only)
Label: Capitol
Peak: #13

82. WALK OFF THE EARTH, “I’ll Be There”
Album: Here We Go!
Label: Golden Carrot/The Orchard (RED)
Peak: #13

81. LADY GAGA, “Always Remember Us This Way”
Album: A Star Is Born (Soundtrack)
Label: Interscope
