NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of June 8, 2018

However, it should also debut in the top ten overall.

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.
