ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #70-61

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.

70. NIALL HORAN, “Nice To Meet Ya”
Album: (single only)
Label: Neon Haze/Capitol
Peak: #1 for six+ weeks (2019/2020)

Album: Charli

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to newcomer Alec Benjamin, whose first top 40 hit becomes my first #1 song of 2019. “Let Me Down Slowly” is now at the top in its 15th week on the chart, which is a fairly slow climb, but by no means a record. The song is included on his mixtape called Narrated For You, which came out late last year. Seeb x Bastille take “Grip” up from 33-24, earning it the title of Biggest Mover on my newest update. A pair of new songs by Imagine Dragons (“Bad Liar”) and Jon Bellion (“Stupid Deep”) land at #37 and #38, respectively. A lyric video for the former debuted earlier this week, which is charting in countries like Australia, Norway and Switzerland, which the latter is being serviced to radio here in the U.S. very soon.
