July 2020

Pos./ARTIST/song/BR250 Pos./Points

1              HARRY STYLES    Watermelon Sugar          3              1399.9

Appropriately a song that sounds like a breezy summer wind is the #1 trending song of July. The latest single from Styles that is showing up in top 10’s around the world was already a Beyond Radio hit when the album “Fine Line” was 1st released. It reached #22 in December of last year and is now at #3 on the BR250.

2              THE KILLERS        My Own Soul's Warning 7              1391.75

The 2nd official radio single from the Las Vegas band is already in the BR250 top 10 at #7 and top 15 at Alternative radio. It has that epic Killers sound, awash in synths and a driving beat.

3              BRING ME THE HORIZON              Parasite Eve        52           1318.15

You never know what to expect from this UK band. This song starts with African inspired chanting then goes into a sinister half-rap half-sung verse backed by ominous industrial flourishes and then an explosive chorus. In September 2018 they reached #24 on the BR250 with “Mantra”.

4              JOEL CORRY f/ MNEK      Head & Heart     69           1129.4

Corry rose to fame on an MTV reality series in the UK that was a spin-off of “Jersey Shore”. In 2019 he reached the UK top 10 with “Sorry” after it was featured in another UK reality series “Love Island”. This is his third single to reach the UK top 20.

5              BLACKPINK         How You Like That           62           975.4

The K-Pop girl group have received a number of Guinness World Records for this new single including the most viewed video on YouTube in a 24-hour period. Haha, How you like that?

6              CAMELPHAT f/ YANNIS      Hypercolour       76           965.4

This UK duo first appeared on Beyond Radio in late 2017 with “Cola” that peaked at #37 on the BR250 and made the top 20 in England. They have since reached the top 100 at Beyond Radio 6 times and just missed with a seventh, “Breathe” a #104 peak. This pulsating dance track )with Yannis, the vocalist from Foals) will be the first to reach my personal chart.

7              DOVES  Carousels            26           888.8

This ethereal indie rock trio from the UK had a #1 song on my personal chart in 2002 with “Caught By The River” and look to make their first appearance in my weekly top 150 since 2009 with the latest release “Prisoners” This moody percussive track should also follow suit.

8              NOTHING BUT THIEVES  Real Love Song  60           868.4

The second song to preview their upcoming album “Moral Panic” is a sweeping, synth-y mid-tempo ballad that reminds me of the Cure and other late 80’s bands. Once again the soaring vocals of lead singer Conor Mason take it to another level.

9              JESSIE WARE       Save A Kiss          8              834.45

Her fourth album “What’s Your Pleasure?” just debuted on the UK album chart at #3 and this week 5 songs appear in the BR250. Ware has eclipsed the #9 peak of “Spolight” earlier this year by moving to #8 with this breathy disco nugget. The synths evoke a more subdued Moroder feel than Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love”.

10           ERIC CHURCH     Stick That In Your Country Song 136         777.55

On an almost opposite end of the spectrum, the most adventurous artist in country music previews an upcoming album with a socially conscious and relevant single. Co-written by prolific songwriter Jeffrey Steele, this undoubtedly with bring him back to my top 10, marking his seventh appearance (including 3 #1’s). It is a true rocker that I’m sure has already stirred up controversy at Country radio. Hard to believe this was written prior to the pandemic and racial tensions of late. And in an unusual turn, he did not assist in the writing of this.

11           RASCAL FLATTS How They Remember You            104         711.25

Jeffrey Steele is responsible for a number of this band’s big hits. They just recently cancelled their farewell tour for obvious reasons. A new EP is coming out at the end of July with a possible album to follow.

12           KANYE WEST f/ TRAVIS SCOTT    Wash Us In The Blood    133         700.6

The latest presidential candidate preview’s his 10th studio album “God’s Country” with the second song here with industrial influence. And like #10, plenty of social commentary.

13           BECKY HILL & SIGALA     Heaven On My Mind       111         653.6

14           VICTORIA MONET            Experience         77           638.3

**Underlined songs were on my top 100 this month in 1970 & the number in parentheses is its position on the chart.

 

Part 1, Superstar Beginnings and Endings

Elton John/Take Me To The Pilot (1)

As was the case with the January 1970 chart Elton John claims the #1 slot. While he had released his 1st album “Empty Sky” in the UK in 1969 it was his self-titled 2nd album that brought him to the States and started his illustrious 5-decade career. Music researcher Joel Whitburn, who has chronicled the U.S. music charts for 50 years through a series of books, places John as the #3 artist of all-time. “Border Song (Holy Moses)” (15) was the 1st song released when the album hit in April and in the last verse (written by John instead of his songwriting partner Bernie Taupin) he speaks to matters that are almost more pertinent today than ever. "Holy Moses, let us live in peace/let us strive to find a way to make all hatred cease/there's a man over there. What's his colour I don't care/he's my brother let us live in peace."

While this was the 1st song that made a chart in any country for Elton (nothing from “Empty Sky” charted in the UK), it was the cover version of this song that performed better on the Billboard charts. His version reached #92 (#34 in Canada), while Aretha Franklin took it to #37 late in the year. The gospel-tinged song was certainly a perfect fit for.

The 2nd single released was “Rock and Roll Madonna” (9), a rollicking piano boogie stomper that was only released in the UK and again, did not make the official chart there. The b-side was an early version of “Grey Seal” (62) that re-surfaced in a more upbeat version on the 1973 album “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”. I do prefer that later version, coming in at #11 for the year in ’73. Soon after ‘Madonna’ a song called “From Denver To L.A.” was released. Not on the album, it was featured in the movie “The Games”. It was erroneously credited to Elton Johns and the single was withdrawn quickly because he and his record label objected to its release. It is now quite the collector’s item.

“Take Me To The Pilot”, certainly my favorite song from this album, was slated as the a-side of the next release with “Your Song” as the b-side. We all know how that played out. ‘Pilot’ received airplay mostly on FM album rock radio while “Your Song” became the pop standout earning him his 1st top 10 in the U.S. and 1st chart entry in England ever. I charted a live version of ‘Pilot’ from the 1987 album “Live In Australia with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra” and it again peaked at #1. In 2002 Ewan Macgregor’s version of “Your Song” from the movie “Moulin Rouge” went to #2 on my chart and it is now my preferred version. We’ll see how the original “Your Song” fares when we re-visit 1970 in December. In total I would chart 10 songs form John’s album including “The King Must Die” (72-debut), “Bad Side Of The Moon”, “I Need You To Turn To”, “Sixty Years On” and “The Cage”.

While his career was starting to escalate Joel Whitburn’s #2 artist of all-time, The Beatles, had just released their last studio album “Let It Be”.  The album was far from their strongest, especially after the previous “Abbey Road”. Interestingly this album was recorded prior to “Abbey Road”. Only 3 songs from this would make my chart. The Billboard #1 “Let It Be” (26) had made it to #5 on my chart in May and “The Long And Winding Road” (5) (their last #1 in the States) was, for a brief time in the late 70’s when I was truly absorbing all the Beatles catalog, my #1 song of all-time. “Across The Universe” was just outside my top 100 in July and would enter the following month.

My Personal Chart Blog, June 1, 2010

Part 3, Pop Got Punked and There Will Be Fall Out, Party Music and the Orbit Around Mars

Boys Like Girls/Heart Heart Heartbreak (3)

 

YouTube playlist with the songs from Part 3 (a total of 93 songs on this one, there's a lot of history here)

 

Aah, the aughts, and early 2010s saw a lot of boy bands under the Punk-Pop moniker and it certainly had an impact on me. This song had just dropped from #1 2 weeks earlier. The Boston area band emerged in 2007 with the top 10 Pop single “The Great Escape” and scored a couple of other top 25 hits in the following 2 years. Taylor Swift (I may get into my overall dislike of her at some point) helped bring them back to the Pop top 10 in late 2009 with “Two Is Better Than One”. Up to this point, the band did not register to a great degree, though they did make my 60 in 2009 with “Love Drunk”, another moderate Pop hit.

“Heart Heart Heartbreak” was their moment to shine on my chart with its huge hook. This one really never lets up the energy from beginning to end. It was their last Pop charter, reaching #31. It is a common occurrence that my favorite songs by an artist tend to not be their biggest hits. The song did make the music party top 40 at #36 the summer of 2010. For those uninformed, my annual music party, started in 1984, features a countdown of the top songs of the prior 12-month period, so June through May. The participants are mostly friends and usually in the 20-25 range so a song that is well-liked by a few people can make the lower reaches of the top 40.

The band released a final album in 2012 and made my chart 1 last time with “Be Your Everything”. Lead singer Martin Johnson re-surfaced in 2017 as the Night Game, a name he took from a Paul Simon song. His first single was “The Outfield” with backing vocals from Gotye, the artist who had the biggest song in the world in 2012, “Somebody That I Used To Know” (and also the #1 song at the summer 2012 party). It’s as if Gotye vanished after the success of that song, he never released another album. The funny thing about “The Outfield” is that it totally reminds me of the 80’s band of the same name, especially their song “Your Love”.

It was the more interesting song, “Once In A Lifetime” that would make it to #3 on my personal chart in December 2017. This one starts with a subdued, almost mysterious vocal style. It has a quality that is unlike any other song I can remember though I could hear Crowded House doing this song. His guitarist is from Australia (as is Gotye) so maybe that makes sense. Also, though sounding different, I can relate this to the late 80’s song “Welcome To The Boomtown” by David & David (the #3 song at the 1987 party). The Night Game just released a song on May 29 of this year called “Magic Trick”.

What is interesting to me is that Johnson co-wrote and produced songs for a lot of Pop artists over the last decade. These include Jason Derulo (“The Other Side”), Avril Lavigne (“Here’s To Never Growing Up”) and Elle King (“America’s Sweetheart”). He also is partially responsible for 2 other top 5 songs on my weekly chart, Lavigne’s “Rock N Roll” and Country artist Hunter Hayes’ “Yesterday’s Song”.

2 Canadian Punk-Pop bands from British Columbia were making some waves north of the border at the time. Faber Drive was discovered by Chad Kroeger of Nickelback (and husband of Avril Lavigne) in 2007. They were enjoying their biggest hit in 2009 with “G-Get Up And Dance”. 2 songs from 2007 made my top 20; “When I’m With You” and “Second Chance”.  

Hedley has had the more prosperous career though mired in some scandal. All 7 of their albums have made the Canadian top 10 and they have had 10 top singles as well. They splashed on the Canadian charts at #1 in 2005 with their first song “On My Own”. This was right after lead vocalist Jacob Hoggard’s third-place showing in 2004 on “Canadian Idol”. In 2009-10 they were riding high with “Cha-Ching” and “Perfect”. It wasn’t until 2014-15 that they reached my top 10 with “Crazy For You” and “Hello”. In recent years Hoggard and the band have been involved in sexual assault accusations which led to their management company dropping them and the band going on indefinite hiatus.

The Tallahassee band Mayday Parade joins the conversation with 3 connections to the Night Game and Johnson...Read the rest here

 

New Music to check out

Groovin' to some new funky blues from Fantastic Negrito.

Just about to start writing the next blog entry that will include Needtobreathe and here they are with a new song.

I'm liking this and "Fire in Bone" more than "Caution".

 

The fun little ditty reached #7 on my personal chart last December. It's just been sent to radio. It's also on the "Fun In The Country Music Therapy" playlist.

More fun in the country with the Brothers Osborne.

Gaga Nation is Trending in June

June 2020

1              LADY GAGA & ARIANA GRANDE Rain On Me        1              4814.45

With the debut of “Chromatica”, 12 of those songs make the Trending Top 100 for mid-June, including the top 2. The album also debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200, with Jimmy Buffet’s latest release coming in at #2! The strength of ‘Rain’ catapults it into the top position on the BR250 as well. Her collaborations don’t hurt either.

2              LADY GAGA f/ BLACKPINK            Sour Candy         28           1555

3              KATY PERRY        Daisies  11           1206.85

It’s an all-female trending top 5. It’s been a year since Perry was in the BR250 top 10 (#1 with “Never Really Over”) and she just misses it at #11 this week on the main chart.

4              MICKEY GUYTON              Black Like Me    71           1080.5

The Country singer debuts the timely “Black Like Me” and its release helps her other current single, “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” move into the top 100 on the BR250 just behind at #75.

5              ELLIE GOULDING              Power   42           1035.7

The English songstress interpolates Dua Lipa’s “Be The One” on the 5th single to precede her July album “Brightest Blue”. David Paich of Toto gets a songwriting credit on this one.

6              BIFFY CLYRO       Tiny Indoor Fireworks    52           956.3

This is the third song in the last 4 months by the Brit band to make the trending top 10 and to reach the BR250’s top 60.

7              WEEZER                Hero      15           921.65

COVID songs abound and this is one of them. A second preview into the upcoming “Van Weezer” album, after last year’s “End of The Game”.

8              TOPIC & A7S       Breaking Me      27           916.7

This is currently the #3 song on the European airplay chart. It’s driving me crazy, part of the song sounds like another I can’t place.

9              HARRY STYLES    Watermelon Sugar          24           900.05

With its release as a radio single this song moves back into the top 25 on the main chart. It peaked at #22 in December an should surpass that on the next chart. This one sounds like a summer song.

10           LADY GAGA        Babylon                114         805.8

11           TRAVIS A Ghost 116         798.6

Back after 4 years, strummy as ever, but that leads to an effervescent chorus. Not a bad return at all.

12           SHINEDOWN      Atlas Falls            41           790

This uplifting rock ballad was originally recorded during the sessions for the 2012 “Amaryllis”. It was released in March to raise money for COVID relief and has so far raised 300K.

13           TERRACE MARTIN f/ DENZEL CURRY, DAYLYT, KAMASI WASHINGTON & G PERICO               Pig Feet 129         750.2

Beyond Radio Tim’s Top 150, June 14

1              1              HARRY STYLES   Falling  1(2)        12
The former 1D old soul reaches the #1 position for the2nd time after “Sign Of The Times”. He just missed the top 10 earlier this year with “Adore You” reaching #11 and “Treat People With Kindness” made it to #21 in March.
2              2              5 SECONDS OF SUMMER              Wildflower        1(3)        8
The boys have spent the last 6 weeks in the top 2. So much better than the stateside single “Old Me”, a non-starter for me. “No Shame” peaked at #12 last month.
5              3              LOTTERY WINNERS         Love Will Keep Us Together        3              5
The UK newcomers have placed 10 songs in my top 150 this year and this is looking like their third #1. Their album debuted on the UK chart at #23 in March but as of yet none of their singles have reached the top 100 there.
3              4              HANSON             In The City          3(3)        8
In doing my 2000 blog last month I re-discovered this song from the album “This Time Around”. A true rocker from the brothers that still sounds fantastic. The flute recalls Jethro Tull and John Popper of Blues Traveler on harmonica gives it a great energy. Will it be denied a #1 peak? Not necessarily. OK Go re-surface as well because of the current 2010 blog.
4              5              NOTHING BUT THIEVES Is Everybody Going Crazy?           4(3)        11
Another UK band. This is their seventh visit to my top 10, 5 of those reaching the top 5
7              6              EVANESCENCE  Wasted On You 6              6
Like an old friend, I love Amy Lee’s voice. Their first appearance on my chart since 2012.  A nice contrast between verse and chorus.
8              7              THE SIDE DEAL  Ghosts  7              7
What happens when you team former members of Train and Sugar with 2 brothers whose music is steeped in roots music. A 90’s era pop-rock toe-tapper with rootsy undertones. Grandmaster Flash gets a shout out.
6              8              CREEPER              Cyanide               5              11
A second top 10 in a row for the horror-punk band. In this mid-tempo sort-of ballad Christina Applegate gets a shout out (“she’s my cyanide”). This season of “Dead To Me” went by too fast.
9              9              CAITLYN SMITH Rare Bird             8              14
Caitlyn Smith’s second album “Supernova” is an up and down affair but when it shines, it shines. This simple song highlight’s that voice.
11           10           JESSIE WARE      Spotlight             10           11
It has taken me a while to find the right song from this sultry vocalist. The light disco pulse of this one brings to mind Lisa Stansfield.
10           11           ARKELLS               Years In The Making       9              14
12           12           THE MAKEMAKES            Heyo     12           17
15           13           LIVE LOUNGE ALLSTARS                Times Like These             13           7
One of the better COVID related songs. This one a remake of the Foo Fighters song from 2003. I recently discovered a Glen Campbell cover as well along with a cover of Guided By Voices “Hold On Hope”, a beautiful song (also through doing blog research).
