Pink stays on top for a 5th week as her album “Beautiful Trauma” hit the shelves last Friday. The title song enters the chart at #201 and I’d expect a big surge next week. While Pink and Taylor Swift had moderate point gains, the biggest point jumps in the top 25 belong to Sam Smith (12-8), helped by 19 adds, and Kelly Clarkson (9-6) with 10 adds. Both songs gained over 700 points.
Within the top 25 the biggest jump belongs to Zayn & Sia, up 11 to #12. 2 new titles enter the top 25 led by another 1D member, Harry Styles. Both songs are struggling at U.S. radio with “Two Ghosts” already on the way down and “Dusk Til Dawn” only seeing a minor gain this week. Maroon 5 has the other entry at #23. Right outside another 1D member moves 74-30 with his 3rd single this year “Too Much To Ask”.
The highest new entries in the top 100 are at #42 and #43 respectively. Nick Jonas (116-42) passed Walk The Moon (114-43) to claim the best move. As predicted last week ‘One Foot” had a very short-lived stay as a Untapped Resource.
3 notable heritage artists enter the top 250 this week. The ex-Smiths singer Morrissey comes in at #102 with his 1st song in 3 years “Spend The Day In Bed”. Pat Benatar sees her 2nd single of 2017 “Dancing Through The Wreckage” jump 281-107. And ut of the box, Noel Gallagher enters at #169 with “Holy Mountain”. He joins his brother Liam on the BR250 who has had 3 entries this year.

The UR250 for October 9
In the 10 weeks since this chart debuted Royal Blood have remained in the top 10 and finally reach the summit this week. London Grammar had an international hit in 2013 with the song “Strong”. This year 4 songs from their second full length have reached the BR250, this one is trending at #107 this week. Wrabel’s poignant “The Village” is in at #3, skirting close to the BR250’s top 100.
The preview into Walk The Moon’s upcoming album vaults to #4 and I imagine it will be the sole week on this chart as it should quickly ascend the Alternative chart.
The rest of the top 10 are new entries including 2 Garys. At #8 Gary Numan of 1979’s “Cars” fame. It was his only hit in the U.S. In his homeland of the UK he has charted 21 albums and almost 40 singles. Country star Gary Allan released his 1st album in 1996 and has amassed 23 Country top 40 singles, including 4 #1’s. Last year he reached #146 on the BR250 with “Do You Wish it Was Me?” a song that reached #2 on my personal chart.

Swift & Beck squared while the chart remains Pink for Breast Cancer awareness.
Pink starts off Breast Cancer awareness month keeping Taylor Swift at bay. Swift had more adds and a higher point increase but it wasn’t enough to dethrone. She can take solace in the fact that she scores a second top 25 entry with “Ready For It”, moving 51-14.
Beck also enjoys 2 top 25 songs with “Dear Life” leading on a 30-11 move, while the infectious dance ditty “Up All Night” vaults 102-19. The other nice jumps into the top 25 belong to Kelly Clarkson’s “Love So Soft”, moving into the top 10 at #9 from 40, Sam Smith, up 32-18 with his latest and hip hop artist Logic, who looks to have a multi-format smash with “1-800-273-8255” (49-24) .
The latest Untapped Resources charts for Oct. 2 and the month of Sept. are posted. Royal Blood rules the month with “I Only Lie When I Love You” which just cracked the Active Rock top 10 this week.

These are new releases from Heritage artists, all receiving a good amount of airplay. This could be the biggest U2 on my personal chart since “Original Of The Species” reached #10 in 2006. Beck has had a single #1 on my chart with “Sexx Laws” in 1999. For ex-Oasis brother Gallagher, this is his third solo single this year. “Sunday Morning Call” from 2000, was one Oasis’ biggest songs on my personal chart, peaking at #5.
U2 You're The Best Thing About Me
BECK Dear Life
LIAM GALLAGHER For What It's Worth
SON MIEUX Hiding (Indie Pop band from the Netherlands)
ST. VINCENT Los Ageless (Tulsa’s Annie Clark began her career as a member of the Dallas orchestral pop collective the Polyphonic Spree. That band, described on Spotify as “drawing comparisons to The Faling Lips, and The Beach Boys with a smidgen of Godspell-like attitude thrown into the mix. A few of their songs have appeared on my personal chart over the years including “Hold Me Now”, “Running Away” and “Two Thousand Places”.)
GABRIELLE APLIN Waking Up Slow (As so many seem to these days, Aplin started in career posting cover tunes on YouTube . While she started out more acoustic-folky, this song has a more pop edge to it..)
SKIP MARLEY Refugee (The grandson of Bob Marley and nephew of Ziggy.)
7HORSE Swagger (Roots rock offshoot of the 90’s alternative band Dada. The California threesome had a big modern rock hit in 1992 with”Dizz Knee Land” and just release a new single “Take Me To The Song” on Sept. 22. They also have a song called “Timothy”.
MATT POND PA Still Summer (NY indie rockers formed in Philadelphia, hence the PA. Matt started his own label, 131 Records, last year to be able to take control of his creative process after a 20 year career. The band has released 2 albums in the last year “Winter Lives” last November and “Still Summer” last month.)
RHYS LEWIS I Know The Feeling (London based singer-songwriter. This one is retro soul, sounding like something out of the late 60’s)
CASSIA 100 Times Over (Brit band offers their own brand of what is described as “calypso-flavoured afro-rock”.)
New releases from artists of the new wave era.
SQUEEZE Innocence In Paradise (This British band was prolific between 1978-1998 and then went onto solo projects before reuniting in 2010.)
NEIL FINN Second Nature (Ex of Aussie bands Split Enz and Crowded House.)
PAUL WELLER Woo Se Mama (The man behind The Jam and Style Council.)
SPARKS Edith Piaf (Said It Better Than Me) (Quirky American band that is led by 2 brothers, Ron and Russell Mael. Their 1st release was in 1971 under the name Halfnelson.)
ANDERSON EAST All On My Mind (Alabama native whose influences range from vintage rock ‘n roll, gospel, r&b and country. This falls somewhere in the middle.)
File under Alternative-Folk from Canada
SHRED KELLY Archipelago (This band is from British Columbia and the song is more on the pop side of folk.)
ELLIOTT BROOD Dig A Little Hole (This guy is from Ontario and this one is more Country-Americana.)
Two bands I talked with an Uber rider about.
BARR BROTHERS It Came To Me (Based out of Montreal, the brothers are actually from Providence, RI. Their music can be loosely described as Blues-Folk.)
WIND AND THE WAVE Before The World Explodes (This co-ed duo from Austin, Texas specializes in folk-pop, country and bluesy roots rock. The latter can be heard on “Raising Hands Raising Hell Raise 'Em High”.)
STEREOPHONICS Caught By The Wind (A Welsh band whose 1st release was in 1996 . They had a string of top 10 hits in the UK between 1998-2005. They have reached my top 3 twice, once in 2000 with “Pick A Part That’s New” and again in 2013 with “In A Moment”. In total they had had 23 songs reach my chart. )
The UR250, Sept. 25 2017. In the Ware house
Again this week 8 new titles enter the top 10, led by the surge of Jessie Ware’s latest single. She also graduates from Untapped Resources this week as “Midnight” has enter the BR250 top 25. This in addition to Nothing But Thieves “Sorry”. Other Untapped graduates are listed below as they have reached airplay thresholds in their respective genres.
LCD Soundsytem achieve their 1st #1 album on the Billboard 200 with “American Dream” and move up to #3 here with the song “Tonite”. Zayn has the biggest move into the top 10 with his collaboration with Sia at #5. The song hits the Hot AC top 50 this week but interestingly not the Pop top 50. I’m guessing its stay on the UR250 will be limited. A posthumous single release from George Michael, assisted by Nile Rodgers also makes a nice move up to #7, very much in the mode of his club leaning songs.

It has been just over a year since The Dear Hunter debuted on my top 150 with “The Revival” (Sept. 25, 2016). In the past year they have had 11 songs reach my top 15 including 4 #1’s (and a 5th next week).
After that the next #1 is likely to be “Happy Dance” by MercyMe which is making a quick ascent, up 45-14 this week. That would make 6 #1’s since 2004, the first being the amazing “Here With Me”. That could keep potential #1’s from Nothing But Thieves, Third Day, J. Roddy Walston and Beck at bay.
Another classic rock band, Foreigner, joins Night Ranger in the upper reaches of my chart. They had the song “The Fame Still Burns” on my top 150 for 22 weeks, peaking at #71. In its 5th week “Give My Life For Love” is already up to #25 and destined for the top 10. Guess I’m having a nostalgia period. The 3rd Night Ranger song to hit my top 150 this year, “Running Out Of Time” debuts this week at #120.
The top debut is the very catchy “Show Me The Science” by The Blizzards. This is my first exposure to the decade old Irish band who reached #2 on the Irish singles chart in 2008 with “Trust Me, I’m A Doctor”.
