ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2018: Part Two, 60-31

As 2018 draws 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. 2018 may have been a doozy on the political front, but in the musical world, plenty of great singles and performers made their mark on my listening habits this year. “Love” was a constant presence in the top 40 for much of the last twelve months, from “Love So Soft” to “Love Someone” to “Say Love” and many others. We also found a “New” perspective from big titles like “New Light” and “New Rules”. “High Hopes”, “High Horse” and “Hell Or High Water” kept us in the heights of a diverse year for sounds, while “You”, “Me” and everybody in-between got their equal share of pop pronouns. Phew… that was a lot, and there’s much more to come! Who will spread the word and have my #1 song at the end of the countdown?

Well, grab your headphones and let’s get to counting. Check out the next 30 songs on my Top 100 of 2018…

The 2018 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 3, 2017 to the chart dated November 25, 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. 171 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a decrease from the 176 that did so in 2017.

Chart Notes:

  • Continuing on cruise control on the hit highway, singer and songwriter George Ezra remains at #1 on my personal chart for the fifth week with “Shotgun”. It’s his eighth total week at the top so far this year. A pair of new top five songs by Imagine Dragons (“Natural”, up 6-4) and Dean Lewis (“Be Alright”, up 10-5) should compete for #1 in the coming weeks. Climbing six notches to score this week’s Biggest Movers, it’s the Hot AC flashback circa 2009 that you never knew you needed: “Memorized” is up 28-22 for Mat Kearney & RAC, while the Dave Matthews Band is up 32-26 with “Again And Again”. Further down, there are three debuts in the mix this week, led by the fourth top 40 entry for Lukas Graham; “Love Someone” bows at #38. It’s the first single to be released from 3 (The Purple Album), due October 26. Shawn Mendes is back in the top 40 at #39 with “Lost In Japan”. It follows “In My Blood”, which spent two weeks at #1 earlier this year. The future hit goes to Hot AC and Top 40 radio next month. Lastly, at #40, it’s the return of Mike Posner and his latest single, “Song About You”. Posner’s biggest entry to date on my chart is “Cooler Than Me”, which peaked at #4 in 2010, though he returned to the top ten in 2016 with “I Took A Pill In Ibiza”, peaking at #8.

Chart Notes:

  • George Ezra now has his longest-running #1 song on my chart with “Shotgun”, spending its fourth week at the summit. It’s the third single from his album Staying’s At Tamara’s, which is sure to produce even more hits as the year goes on. Two songs reach the top 40 this week, led by the first collaboration for Silk City (the duo featuring Diplo and Mark Ronson) and Dua Lipa at #38. “Electricity” is sparking on the sales and streaming charts ahead of its impact date at the Top 40 format this Tuesday. You’ll recall that Lipa spent five weeks at #1 on my chart earlier this year with “One Kiss”, a collaboration with Calvin Harris. It’s also a great week for Ariana Grande, who starts at #39 with “Breathin”, which charts concurrently with her prior Sweetener singles “God Is A Woman” (currently #11) and “No Tears Left To Cry” (#23). While “God” has yet to peak, “No” spent five weeks at #2.

Chart Notes:

  • George Ezra‘s “Shotgun” extends its time at #1 on my personal chart by another week, now there for a third week, but the latest countdown is all about the debuts. There are five new tracks entering the top 40, a noticeably larger total than usual, led by “Fred Astaire” from Jukebox The Ghost at #34. This is the follow-up to “Everybody’s Lonely”, which peaked at #2 in April. The trio’s 2015 single “Postcard” spent seven weeks at #1 and became my top song of that year. Two steps below, at #36, Barns Courtney is back with “99”, the year my first official chart was published. (Oh, the nostalgia of it all!) Courtney logged four weeks at the top in 2016 with “Fire”, which remains his biggest hit to date. New at #37, with their second top 40 single from Come Tomorrow, the Dave Matthews Band is in with “Again And Again”. The group last made my top ten in late 2009 with “You And Me”, reaching #9. Bishop Briggs lands one notch lower at #38 with “Baby”, which marks her third entry to chart this year, following “Dream” (#15) and “White Flag” (#24). Finally, at #39, KT Tunstall scores her first top 40 entry in nearly eight years with “The River”. It was twelve years ago that Tunstall spent two weeks at #1 with “Black Horse And The Cherry Tree”, her only chart-topper to date.

Chart Notes:

  • It’s a second week at the top for George Ezra‘s “Shotgun” on my personal chart, as Kacey Musgraves‘s “High Horse” appears ready to lead the record rodeo next month, up 5-2 on the latest update. Last week’s top new entry from newcomer Nina Nesbitt makes a huge move from 39-29, as “Loyal To Me” secures the title of Biggest Mover. Two collaborations debut on the countdown this week, with “Happier” from DJ/producer Marshmello and rockers Bastille claiming the Highest Debut at #34. The British band has led by chart three times between 2013 and 2016, with their most recent chart single, “Quarter Past Midnight”, reaching #7 earlier this summer. The second debut is a single that pairs singer/songwriter Mat Kearney and DJ/producer RAC, coming in at #40 with “Memorized”. It’s the second top 40 entry from Kearney’s album CRAZYTALK, which follows “Kings & Queens”, a #21 song from the spring of this year.
