Trending for The Weeknd

The Trending 100 for January 2020

These are top 100 point gainers at mid month.

 

At this point in the month The Weeknd could snag #1 for January based on his trending points. “Adore You” does have a shot as nothing else in the top 10 has enough strength to compete. Harry Styles is still seeing 3 songs in the top 25 and has few other tunes from the new album “Fine Line” making some noise on a few personal charts. He continues to follow an interesting path as evidenced by the song “Treat People With Kindness”.

While Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” is starting to lose points she remains in the top 3 trending songs with the next release “Future Nostalgia”. Over the last year I feel she has made song choices that are thankfully a bit outside the current pop crop, creating a singular identity.

At #4 is the leftfield Grimes song “4 AEM”, an ethereal chant set to alt beats that gets more frenetic as the song goes on. In a similar left of center vein “In The Afternoon”, the return of MGMT, is much less mainstream then the place they started from in 2007.

The # on the left is the song's current positiopn in the top 500 at mid-month

The Lights were too Blinding for the Weeknd

The final BR250 of 2019 sees Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” retain the #1 slot, beating out newcomer “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd by a huge amount. Over 1300 points separate the 2 songs. She also enters the top 100 at #95 with “Future Nostalgia” another slice of dance-pop that sets her apart from the EDM that has dominated the Pop charts in the last few years.

The Weeknd places a second title in the top 20 with “Heartless”, at that position. He continues the trend of releasing 2 songs to radio, one that leans more R&B/Hip-Hop and one that leans more Pop.

2 titles in top 25 are not enough to dominate the upper region as Harry Styles manages 3. His latest single “Adore You” debuts at #11, the song “Lights Up” falls from its #8 peak last month to #12 and “Watermelon Sugar” jumps from outside the top 100 to #22.

On the Heritage artist front, Alanis Morisette returns after a 7 year hiatus to debut at #13 with another confessional song, “Reasons To Drink”. A new album scheduled for a May 1 release. Other Heritage artists doing well (those who have been around for 20 years plus) include Ozzy Osbourne at #14 with “Under The Graveyard”, #29 “Dreamland” by Pet Shop Boys and Jimmy Eats World’s “All The Way (Stay)” at #30.

While Christmas music doesn’t dominate the Beyond Radio chart like other charts around the world, a new Christmas tune from Taylor Swift, “Christmas Tree Farm”, makes a #33 debut. Thankfully Mariah Carey only manages to come in at #97 this month, even as she sees “All I Want For Christmas Is You” reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in its 25 year history (can you tell I don’t like Christmas songs re-entering the charts every year).

Alternative Sub-Genres and Another Retro Countdown Playlist

Enjoy this month's retro countdown, this time my favorite tunes from this week in 2009. At this moment in time there was a  varied mix of Alternative, Rock, Country and Christian on my chart. Not a lot of the big Pop from the day (Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Britney,  Black-Eyed Peas, Beyonce) on my chart at the time. The big artists of the the day for me were Shinedown, Adam Lambert, Muse and Keith Urban. It was also the beginning of Glee and the first appearance on my chart by one of my favorite bands of the last 10 years, Manic Bloom.

Below are the top 10's from all the Alternative and AAA sub-genres

Trending Mid-December is Working For the Weeknd

These are the top 100 songs that are making gains at mid-month.

The Weeknd sees 2 songs in the trending top 10, "Blinding Lights" at #1 and "Heartless" at #10 along with Harry Styles at #'s 5 and 6 with "Watermelon Sugar" and "Adore You". His album "Fine Line" was released last Friday. Alanis Morissette is back after 7 years with the confessional single "Reasons I Drink" from an upcoming album scheduled for release in May 2020. Also making a splash in the top 10 is a Christmas new song from Taylor Swift "Christmas Tree Farm".

In positions 11-13 are 3 remakes. A faithful cover of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" by Sam Smith, Bastille with the London Contemporary Orchestra taking on the REO Speedwagon classic "Can't Fight This Feeling" and the second remake of Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain" this year, this one by Evanescence (Yes they are still around). 

At #20 is this week's Billboard Hot 100 #1 song, "All I Want For Christmas Is You". Released 25 years ago, you might be surprised to know this is the 1st time the song has reached top #1 position on the Hot 100. Weird stuff.  See the full top 100 via the link.

Dua Lipa makes a Big Leap-a on the BR250 for November and the Latest Therapy Playlist

Dua Lipa reaches #1 out of the box on the November BR 250. With a margin of only 12 points, she displaces Post Malone, pushing "Circles" back to #2. Coldplay also leaps into the top 5 with "Orphans". They also debut 2 other titles in the top 100 with "Arabesque" at #23 and "Everyday Life" at #62.

2 former One Direction boys move into the top 10, with Niall Horan at #5 and Harry Styles at #8.

Billie Eilish releases a new tune, "Everything I Wanted" even while "All The Good Girls" builds at Pop radio and this eclipses that one by debuting at #9. 

Haim debuts at #13 with "Now I'm In It" a song that is poppier and more along their previous style that the jazzy "Summer Girls" which peaked at #28.

Tame Impala place a 3rd song in the top 15 this year with "It Might Be Time" debuting at #14.

The latest Music Therapy playlist is a progressive playlist titled “From Darkness Into Light”. It is meant to be played in order instead of on shuffle. This was inspired by a friend who was in a dark place and was looking for music to embrace the darkness and then move out of it. I would imagine I’ll have other playlists in this progressive style and things move forward. Later this week I'll have some commentary to accompany the songs on the Music Therapy playlist page.

Your New Playlists for the Weekend
This weekend there 4 new playlists for you to enjoy. The first is my top 60 from Nov. 27, 1999. My #1 that week was "Hangin' Around" by Counting Crows. At the time I was deep in the Live album "The Distance From Here" and the Michael W. Smith album "Live The Life". His song "Missing Person" had just ended a 5 week run at #1 and was spending it's second week at #2. The week prior Live had the #1 song which is not included on the playlist. I had just been to a Live concert (I believe the third time I had seen them). At the time my #1 song of all time was their song "Pillar Of Davidson". At the concert they performed John Lennon's "Imagine" and then went into 'Pillar'. It remains the most amazing concert experience of my life.

Next up, the playlist titled "I'm Bryan Adams and You're Not". This is a mix of pop rock from the last 50 years. I was inspired to create this playlist after hearing Richard Marx's "Satisfied" on the previous playlist. I would say that this style of music is a major part of my personal chart history. It is sorely lacking from the radio airwaves these days but still great songs can be found like White Reaper's "Real Long Time", currently at #2 on my personal chart.

On the next playlist we bring the volume down a bit and add a little groove. This one is called "Your Jazz is Popped with Sophistication". This one was inspired by a song by The Bird and The Bee. I couldn't describe them better than their Spotify bio. "The Bird & The Bee specialize in a knowing update on swinging easy listening. Grounded equally in clever new wave pop and space age bachelor pad music, they mined the past to make music for a sophisticated present." There is a whole story behind this that will be told in an upcoming podcast. Their most recent album is a re-interpretation of Van Halen songs.

The playlist is a mix of Pop, R&B and Rock with Jazz undertones. What I learned through processing this playlist was a moniker for a music sub-genre called Sophisti-Pop. Born out of the 80's, it includes artists like Simply Red, the Blow Monkeys, Basia and Spandau Ballet. There is also a more recent movement of Soul-Pop bands like Lawrence, Ripe and Busty and The Bass .

Finally I will be going to my 40th high school reunion next weekend so I made an extensive playlist of songs from our high school years. If you like the music of the mid to late 70's you might enjoy this playlist. It certainly was a time for iconic Classic Rock, Disco, Mellow Pop and the beginnings of Yacht Rock.

New Music Recommendations

This week's recommendations are all from artists who have been around for over 20 years. I've made a YouTube playlist that you can access below.

Jeff Lynne's ELO (he can't just use Electric Light Orchestra because of legal issues) have released a new album "From Out Of Nowhere" The song "One More Time" is a fun upbeat retro nugget.

Going back even further, The Who have a new song called "Ball And Chain". This previews their new album "WHO" due out on Nov. 22. This one sounds like it come have come out of the 70's era catalogue.

If you think of the Tiffany from over 30 years ago you might be surprised by the bluesy "Waste Of Time", kinda out of the Melissa Etheridge playbook. From the 2018 album "Pieces Of Me".

Jimmy Eat World broke through with the 2001 album "Bleed American" but their 1st album was released in 1994. "All The Way (Stay)" from their 10th album "Surviving", is a perfect slice of pop rock with a sax solo that is a nice touch.

80's hitmakers Simply Red have retrospectively been classified as "Sophisti-Pop", a variety of artists who mixed Pop, Jazz and Soul. Funny I have been working on a Jazz-Pop Music Therapy playlist so we'll see what I name it now. "Thinking About You" veers to the dancier side of their style.

If you can believe it, it's been 25 years since the gargantuan album "Cracked Rear View" by Hootie and The Blowfish came out. Darius Rucker has spent the last decade or so honing his country chops to much radio success. The band has re-grouped for the anniversary and released an album of new music, "Imperfect Circle", 2 weeks ago. Had no idea I missed them but the heartland rocker "Hold On" is a welcome return. 

About a year ago, Nov. 8 2018 to be exact, Hanson, who also recently celebrated their 25th anniversary, released an album called "String Theory". It was a mix of old and new tunes recorded with the Prague Symphony Orchestra. Some of you may know that I am a big Hanson fan and I'm just starting to digest this album now. The new version of "Where's The Love" is about to hit my top 10 this week. It will never eclipse the original, one of my all time favorite songs, but it a great version as well. 

Finally, Simple Minds who have surpassed the 40 year mark, also incorporate a symphonic quality of the new song "For One Night Only". It took 3 years from their April 1979 debut to hit it big with "Promised You A Miracle" but these early purveyors of New Wave has amassed quite a resume including 18 studio albums and 7 live albums. And look, to round out the sampler I've included a symphonic version of "Alive and Kicking" from 2018.
