Adam’s Top 100 of 2013: 40-31

They're here...

They’re here…

Single bells, single bells, singles all the way! Oh, what fun is to rank all my favorites from the past 365 days. You’ve seen the songs from 100-41 so far, and now, we enter the coveted top 40. It’s the cream of the pop as we head towards the top. All the big songs are here, from a “Restless Heart” to “True Love”. Get ready to “Cruise” until the countdown is “Gone, Gone, Gone”. So, be “Brave” and read on through this jungle of jams into the house of hits.

Peak positions listed are as of the last chart included in the year dated November 24, 2013. Those marked with a plus had not yet reached their highest position as of that date. Ties in points were broken based on peak, number of weeks at peak and number of weeks in the top 40.

We start off this section with some Men (and Women) At Work from a land “Down Under”…

Everybody's flocking to them.

040. Sheppard – “Let Me Down Easy” (#10)
Writers: Jason Bovino, Amy Sheppard, George Sheppard / Producer: Stuart Stuart

Night and day, I’ve been doing the math, to calculate… this countdown. What did you think I was going to say? The first hit  from this Australian sextet went to #10 for three weeks and top 20 on Australian radio. Their first album is out next year.

Related Posts: Profile on Sheppard (April 27, 2013), CMJ Wrap Up (October 21, 2013)
**Second of two songs in the top 100

This chart has taken control of them.

039. Maroon 5 – “Love Somebody” (#7)
Writers: Adam Levine, Nathaniel Motte, Ryan Tedder, Noel Zancanella / Producers: Tedder, Zancanella

From their 2012 album Overexposed, the band managed to score four top ten singles in a row from their latest effort. A fifth single, “Lucky Strike”, got as high as #27 a few weeks ago. Lead singer Adam Levine is still a judge on NBC’s The Voice.

**First of two songs in the top 100

Life on Murs.

038. Olly Murs – “Army Of Two” (#5)
Writers: Iyiola Babalola, Wayne Hector, Darren Lewis, Olly Murs / Producer: Future Cut

Written as an anthem for his fan base, dubbed the Murs Army, “Two” soldiered onto the charts internationally, but only charted moderately well, just missing the top ten in his native United Kingdom. On my chart, it climbed to #5 for two weeks.

**Second of three songs in the top 100

Straight from the "Heart".

037. Matt Hires – “Restless Heart” (#7)
Writers: Amund Bjorklund, Alex Dezen, Matt Hires, Espin Lind / Producer: Espionage

After failing to reach the top 40 two years ago with “Honey, Let Me Sing You A Song”, the 28-year-old singer-songwriter took the folksy route and went top ten with this single from This World Won’t Last Forever, But Tonight We Can Pretend.

Kids in the "Hall".

036. The Script – “Six Degrees Of Separation” (#6)
Writers: Andrew Frampton, Steve Kipner, Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan / Producers: Frampton/Kipner

The Irish trio led by singer and former The Voice U.K. judge Danny O’Donoghue took on that theory of connectivity in their biggest song of the year, which appropriately peaked at #6. A fourth album by the group will be released next year.

**Second of two songs in the top 100

The days of Delilah are long "Gone".

035. Plain White T’s – “Should’ve Gone To Bed” (#9)
Writer: Tom Higgenson / Producer: Tim Pagnotta

Originally released on an EP earlier this year, “Bed” also serves as the first single from the band’s forthcoming album American Nights, due February 11. It was the quintet’s first top ten single since 2010, when “Rhythm Of Love” went to #7.

Related Posts: Single Premiere (April 2, 2013)

Kelly Clarkson
034. Kelly Clarkson – “People Like Us” (#6)
Writers: Blair Daly, James Michael, Meghan Kabir / Producer: Greg Kurstin

It was an anthem for the ages, a righteous celebration of “the damned” and “the lost and forgotten”, but radio and retail seemed to forget it was actually being released. Though it underperformed nationally, it still went top ten on my survey.

Related Posts: Latest From The Greatest (January 9, 2013)
**Second of two songs in the top 100

Does pop radio really love her "Unconditionally"?

033. Katy Perry – “Roar” (#3)
Writers: Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, Katy Perry, Max Martin, Bonnie McKee, Henry Walter / Producers: Cirkit, Gottwald, Martin

Remember when this leaked on a Saturday morning? I do. The hype was huge and “Roar” soared to #1 on the Hot 100 in a few short weeks. While second single “Unconditionally” quickly burned out, all eyes are on the third single, “Dark Horse”.

Related Posts: Single Premiere (August 10, 2013), Album Review of PRISM (October 17, 2013)

Pretty "Young" things.

032. fun. – “Why Am I The One?” (#6)
Writers/Producers: fun. (Jack Antonoff, Andrew Dost and Nate Ruess), Jeff Bhasker

After the big success of third single “Carry On”, the trio made a music video for this song, but it never ended up seeing a full release at radio, which was rather disappointing. Despite the very limited promotion, “Why” rose to #6 on my weekly chart.

All in the Family.

031. Family Of The Year – “St. Croix” (#7)
Writers: Family Of The Year (James Buckey, Joseph Keefe, Sebastian Keefe and Christina Schroeter) / Producers: Family Of The Year, WAX LTD

2013 was a big year for this California band as their song “Hero” topped the AAA radio chart for a week, their first ever significant hit. This followed it up during the summertime, but only achieved some minor airplay at the Alternative format.

ADAM’S TOP 40 FLASHBACK: November 7, 2010

Pretty in Pink.

Pretty in Pink.

Welcome back for another edition of Adam’s Top 40 Flashback! Every Saturday, the day before my new top 40 goes up for the week, I’ll be featuring a past countdown straight from chart files of Adam’s Top 40. They’re all here — the hit songs, the songs that flopped, and the songs that may be a little embarrassing to reflect on. From the end of midterms during my junior year of college (and I lived to tell about them), this was my chart from November 7, 2010:

Debuts:
39. ROBYN, “Dancing On My Own”
36. ANDY GRAMMER, “Keep Your Head Up”
34. SANTANA featuring CHRIS DAUGHTRY, “Photograph”
33. TAKE THAT, “The Flood”

Biggest Mover(s):
DUCK SAUCE, “Barbra Streisand” (27-20) (7 spots)

10. PINK, “Raise Your Glass”
Climbing from 11-10 that week, “Raise” became the sixteenth top ten single of her career, a career that was chronicled on her compilation at the time, Greatest Hits… So Far!!! The album would climb to #5 and earn a Platinum certification. The single, unfortunately, stalled out at #2 on my chart behind two songs. However, followup “Perfect” would spend three weeks at #1 during the following year.

09. JAMES BLUNT, “Stay The Night”
Holding steady that week was the seventh top 40 hit for Mr. Blunt, the only act in the top ten originally from the United Kingdom. Though his 2005 single “You’re Beautiful” will always be his signature song and his biggest hit on my chart, a #1 for eight non-consecutive weeks, this would become his second chart-topper on my survey, lasting five weeks. He recently dented the chart with “Bonfire Heart”.

08. BRUNO MARS, “Just The Way You Are”
The boy dubbed Little Elvis after performing with his family band as a child could have never dreamed that he would go onto be an international star. “Just” was the first song from Mars to make my chart, though he was already known at that point from a collaboration with rapper B.o.B., “Nothin’ On You”. He’s always been hit or miss with me, but millions of people love him. His current radio single is “Gorilla”.

07. PLAIN WHITE T’s, “Rhythm Of Love”
Up one from last week, this was the group’s first single from their 2010 album, Wonders Of The Younger. It’s no wonder that this one was a smash; not only was it catchy, but it was their first release to feature lead guitarist Tim Lopez doing the vocal rather than regular lead singer Tom Higgenson. Lopez also sings lead on the group’s latest track, “The Giving Tree”, which went to Hot AC radio several weeks back.

06. SUGARLAND, “Stuck Like Glue”
This week, the whole top six was staying in place! Little boring, huh? Of those six, two were crossing over from the Country radio airwaves, including this one from the duo of Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush. It was probably their most polarizing single because of Nettles’s “rap break” that wasn’t deemed Country enough for some of those stations. Really, guys? “Stuck” would end up peaking at #4 for one week.

05. MICHAEL BUBLÉ, “Hollywood”
Taken from the re-release of his 2009 album, Crazy Love, this Bublé single isn’t generally remembered well, mostly because it got lost in the holiday shuffle and just faded away afterwards. However, after a quick rise into my top ten, this would become the singer’s third #1 on my chart following 2007’s “Everything” and 2009’s “Haven’t Met You Yet”. Bublé’s most recent album, To Be Loved, was certified Gold.

04. RYAN STAR, “Start A Fire”
From playing in bands to appearing on 2006’s Rock Star: Supernova, this guy’s been all over the place. This single was released while Star was on Atlantic Records and a few months after his 11:59 album hit the Billboard 200. It remains his biggest single to reach my chart, on its way to spending two weeks at #2 before descending into 2011. Star is now an independent act, raising pledges to issue a new album.

03. NEON TREES, “Animal”
Formed in Provo, UT, this was the quartet’s first big hit on the charts; it was coming off a run of four weeks atop mine, and would go top ten on a few radio formats. 2012’s Picture Show gave them “Everybody Talks”, also a hit. To date, they have five top 40 singles on here. Lead singer Tyler Glenn recently called out the band’s manager on social media, so don’t expect new material from them anytime soon.

02. KATY PERRY, “Teenage Dream”
It was so close, yet so far for Perry’s followup to “California Gurls”. The big ballad and title track from her second album was at #2 for the sixth consecutive week. Ouch! Luckily, she wasn’t too far away from climbing to the top spot with “Firework”, which held it for five weeks. (It was at #31 on this particular chart, up five.) The singer just released an album, PRISM, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200.

01. TAYLOR SWIFT, “Mine”
Young Miss Swift was doing everything right in 2010 with her album Speak Now. I remember that “Mine” leaked on a late afternoon back in early August; everyone wanted get a first listen to it, and Swift’s label, Big Machine, was right on top of it and serviced it to digital retail and radio that night. This was the song’s second of two weeks at #1; “Hollywood” would leap from 5-1 next week. She’s been doing fine on my chart ever since, now up to sixteen entries (which I think is larger than the number of ex-boyfriends she’s had) in the past six years, nine of which went top ten.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s top seven songs are all bulleted as it was two weeks ago and five of the seven are by acts with their very first top ten hit: Passenger (#1), Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams (#2), Florida-Georgia Line (#3), Walk Off The Earth (#5) and Mayer Hawthorne (#7). At only six weeks old, “Her Favorite Song” by Hawthorne could be a #1 contender should the block around the top begin to fall apart. We’ll see as the summer continues. Looks like three songs will make it into the top ten next week out of Maroon 5, Pink/Lily Rose Cooper, Sheppard and Train/Ashley Monroe.
  • This week’s Biggest Mover, although it’s sort of a moderate-sized one, is by British band Bastille and their first top 40 single, “Pompeii”. It advances 31-25, a gain of six spots. Their album, Bad Blood, has yet to be released here.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the eighth song to make my chart by singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw. His latest, “Best I Ever Had”, is in at #39 on the survey. His biggest single thus far was 2005’s “Chariot”, which went as high as #2.
  • It’s Passenger‘s chart from top to bottom this week. Not only is he #1 for an eighth week with “Let Her Go”, but he also debuts at #40 with his followup, “Holes”. It’s already doing well on the radio in Australia and is charting on iTunes in a handful of countries.
  • Look for one song to debut next week, possibly Fitz & The Tantrums, Savoir Adore or The 1975. The latter two acts are newcomers, while “6AM” would be the third song to make my chart for Fitz and friends.

  • For the second week in a row, Five For Fighting takes the Biggest Mover honor, climbing from 29-21 with “What If”. The song’s moved twenty spots upward in two weeks. He, John Ondrasik, also has the distinction of being the oldest musician in the countdown at age 48. Age is nothing but a number, people; it’s all about the quality of the music.
  • This week’s Highest Debut belongs to newcomer Tom Odell from Chichester, England. His song recently went top ten on iTunes in the United Kingdom and this week enters my chart at #38, titled “Another Love”. His album, Long Way Down, is out Monday over there, and gets a release here in the United States in September.
  • Another new singer to the chart is John Newman, who comes in at #39 with “Love Me Again”. Last summer, he was featured on the Rudimental song, “Feel The Love”, which went to #1 in the U.K. and is just now being released here. “Again” has already charted in several European countries, including a top ten peak in Hungary.
  • Last but not least, duo The Civil Wars debut at #40 with “The One That Got Away”, a totally different song from the same title that went to #1 on my chart for Katy Perry in 2011. This single comes after the two cancelled their tour and broke up last year, although they’ve seemed to agree on a forthcoming album release, due August 6. It’s self-titled.
