The Earth and Mars, Remember Where You Are and Let's Have a Boilermaker, This is the BR250 for April 30

Bruno Mars et al have strengthened their lead against the pack, almost 2900 points over Wolf Alice’s #2 “The Last Man On Earth”. To put in perspective “Leave The Door Open” is on 65 charts and Wolf Alice has 40 charts. Speaking of ‘Earth’, I had been scratching my head about that song at first, but I obviously wasn’t really paying attention to it. Now that it is firmly in my brain, I can absolutely see the allure. It reminds me a bit of “Breathe Me” by Sia which spent 4 weeks at #1 on my chart in 2005! Can it be that long? That song is just breathtaking. Earth makes another appearance in the top 25 as Beabadoobee’s “Last Day On Earth” moves 28-17.

“Bed Head” moves up to #3 and has a good chance of reaching the top on my chart. That would surpass the #2 peak on my chart of “I’ve Got Friends” in 2009. Time is just speeding by me. Lil Nas X moves 12-4 with “Montero” which has the second most chart entries, on 44 overall. Jessie Ware has had some staying power with “Remember Where You Are” The song has been in the top 10 for 5 frames, since the Feb. 28 chart, peaking at #3 and the third in a row at #5.

Year & Years makes a nice jump from 51-10 with “Starstruck”. The song is currently #1 in airplay in the UK yet on the official UK chart it is only #56, quite a discrepancy. Alt-Pop fuels 2 other entries to the top 25. Japanese Breakfast’s “Be Sweet” lands at #19 and “Shy Away” by Twenty-One Pilots comes in at #23.

This chart we welcome another compilation chart to the mix, a Netherlands-based Facebook group called Chartfreaks. That chart definitely helped Wolf Alice achieve the runner-up position and aided other titles in the top 25 like Rag ‘N Bone Man” and London Grammar’s “How Does It Feel” up 20-14. Another song that was helped by that chart is the debut of Royal Blood’s “Boilermaker” at #40. That song is on 17 charts, with a debut at #1 on one of our contributors, another Facebook group Byrdbored, and 5 additional top 10 placements.

The highest debut in the top 100 belongs to Twenty-One Pilots but Doja Cat and Sza at #29 (up from 485) with “Kiss Me More”, has a much bigger increase. Other notable debuts in the top 100 are Marina at #51 with “Purge the Poison” and the return of Alice Merton at #61 with “Vertigo”. Another top 100 debut at #44 is “Keep Moving” by British electronic duo Jungle. One of the great things about Beyond Radio IMO, is that it does not correspond completely to official chart trends. “Keep Moving” (on 22 charts) has supposedly only charted in Belgium (at #56) and on the U.S. Dance chart (at #31). More interesting is that Wolf Alice (according to Wikipedia) has only reached the Mexican Airplay chart peaking at #23. It did not make the official UK chart though I imagine it has gotten Alternative radio airplay there.

**"Chosen Family" by Rina Sawayama & Elton John somehow got deleted from the mix. It should be #232.

Update: One of our readers noticed a discrepancy on the AAA/Roots chart and I have adjusted it. This brings Bruce Springsteen's "I'll See You In My Dreams" up to #31 on the chart.

A Podcast in Honor of my Mother, Happy Birthday Mom

This is one of the most personal episodes we have put out so far. The first half of the episode is focused mainly on my mother and the episode coincides with her birthday and the 20th anniversary of her passing. When we recorded this in March 2019 I had no idea this is when it would see the light of day, but the universe seems to have had a hand in it.

It is a long episode but I didn't want to break it up into a 2-parter. There is a natural break in the middle though.

The episode is focused on people who have passed and how music relates to that, but it is not a somber episode. It's an episode about the stories behind the connections and the gifts they have become. I think I blindsided Jeff since he did not know where the episode was going at first and it was hard for him to articulate his responses. I also was nervous before getting into the episode because I didn't know how emotional I would become. In the end, my emotions have been confined to the t lead-up and editing process.

The main takeaway is how personal everyone's connection to music is and the triggers that make a song stay a part of your life forever. And that is truly a gift.

April Trending Chart, Lil Nas X Feels Comfortable in His Skin, Olivia Rodrigo Still Obsessed with Her Ex

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

 

Not a lot to say this month. I’ve been working on a very important and personal podcast episode the last couple of weeks. It will be released this weekend.

Beyond Radio’s Trending 100, April 2021

Listen on Spotify

POS/ARTIST/SONG

1              LIL NAS X              Montero (Call Me By Your Name)

Good for Lil Nas X not shying away from his sexuality on this tune, the sub-title a reference the 2017 LGBTQ movie and 2007 novel. The song debuted at #1 on the Hot 100 and has gone to #1 all around the world. The video is quite a thing, though I suppose no worse that Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. I'll let you find it on your own.

2              OLIVIA RODRIGO              Deja Vu

Rodrigo stills seems to be angry at her ex but at least the song isn’t a complete rehash of “Drivers License”.  I like the interesting instrumentation and it feels like because of that it could have more staying power, at least for me. ‘License’ moved up and down my chart very quickly.

The Door is Still Open for a New #1 on the BR250

A much quieter week on the BR250 than the last edition. Olivia Rodrigo held off challenger, Silk Sonic’s “Leave The Door Open”, which moved 25-2 and came within just over 150 points of the leader. The song has spent the last 2 months at the top. The return of Bruno Mars, however, is on the most charts (55), 10 more than “Driver’s License”.  Rag ‘N’ Bone Man and Wolf Alice also enter the top 10 at #9 and #10 with 6 and 8 adds, respectively.

A nice move from 40-12 was made by the Atlanta band Manchester Orchestra, with the propulsive “Bed Head”. The song is top 20 on AAA radio chart. In 2017 they reached #2 on that chart with “The Gold”. Another “Bed” shows up in the top 15 with DJ Joel Corry’s collaboration with Raye and David Guetta landing at #14.

It looks like Pop radio in the States is jumping on Justin Bieber’s “Peaches” as the next focus track from his just released #1 album “Justice” but it’s the internationally focused “Hold On” that jumps 55-16 (it is also receiving Pop airplay in the States). “Peaches” also debuted atop Billboard’s Hot 100, while the song “Anymore” sits just outside the Pop top 10, giving 3 songs in the top 40.

On the other side of the spectrum is another song with a similar move, 58-19. “This Is Heaven” by Nick Jonas has virtually no radio support anywhere but got 15 personal chart adds this cycle. IMO a better song than “Spaceman” though to be fair that has no support either. ‘Heaven’ is certainly formulaic but has a nice laidback retro vibe and arguably would sound good on the radio.

Part of the beauty and purpose of Beyond Radio is to give a mixed view of what music, from all genres, is making inroads with a passionate audience that focuses on the music instead of corporate decisions. This harkens back to the day when Pop/Rock/R&B etc. could co-exist on a chart and on radio. The BR250 represents the diversity of the music that is actually out there for our consumption. To some degree it equalizes the many facets of the industry but that is only determined by the diversity of the personal chart community. And to be clear, the BR250 strives to be a representative sample of this universe. I don’t have the capacity to process all available personal charts which is why it is great to have other forums that process charts as a subset of the entire panel.

The highest debut in the top 100 is St. Vincent’s “Pay Your Way In Pain”, a quirky left-of-center song from the acclaimed artist. Annie Clark is the niece of Tuck Andress, of jazz duo Tuck & Patti, and she was a roadie for them during her teenage years. Before embarking on her solo career in 2007 she was a member of the ensemble Polyphonic Spree and spent time in Sufjan Stevens touring band. In 2015 she won the Grammy for Best Alternative Album, “St. Vincent” which includes her best-known song “Digital Witness”. That album also appeared at #1 on 7 best-of 2014 lists and #2 on another.

Beyond Radio Tim’s Top 150, May 2, 2021

LW/TW/ARTIST/SONG/PEAK/WEEKS
2 1 MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA Bed Head 1 9
The Atlanta band just released their 6th album since 2006, “The Million Masks Of God” on April 30.
1 2 THE LICKERISH QUARTET Sovereignty Blues 1(3) 15
The former Jellyfish members achieved their 2nd #1 on my chart, after last year’s “Lighthouse Spaceship”, both spending 3 weeks at #1. “Do You Feel Better” just slipped from 9-12 this week. Member Roger Manning Jr. recently also spent 3 weeks at #1 with “The Quickening” and is currently moving up with the very Partridge Family “Love’s Never Half As Good” moving 117-75, an almost assured top 10.
3 3 ONR f/ SARAH BARTHEL Must Stop 3(2) 10
Something about this song from Scotsman Robert David Shields just infiltrates my brain. The song reached the top 25 at Alternative radio earlier this year.
4 4 KEITH URBAN Forever 1(2) 14
I wasn’t sure if Urban would get a #1 song on my chart from his current album but here it is. I do enjoy it when he jams out on the guitar. His latest single, “Out The Cage”, reached #9 on my chart in December while “One Too Many” only made it to #37. ‘Cage’ is his most non-country song to date so we will see how it performs on radio.
5 5 1927 Tell Me A Story 3(3) 12
I resisted having this song hit #1 only because it is 30 years old. It totally brings me back to the INXS/Icehouse era.
7 6 LUCAS HAMMING Falling 5 13
I can’t remember how I came across this song from the Dutch singer and actor. It probably came on as a Spotify suggestion which I am certainly happy about. A nice slice of upbeat pop/rock.
10 7 BOSTON MANOR Brand New Kids 7 15
This is the 3rd song by the British pop/punk band to reach my top 10 in the last year, following “Ratking” and “Plasticine Dreams”.
13 8 FOO FIGHTERS Making A Fire 8 11
The Foos may have simultaneous top 10’s in the next few weeks as “Medicine At Midnight” moves up to #17 this week.
8 9 ALLIE X Glam! 7 12
The Canadian pop singer only reached my top 100 one other time, #62 in 2016 with “All The Rage”. In retrospect, that song should have gone much higher.
12 10 ONE NIGHT ONLY Say You Don't Want It 10 9
Another Spotify discovery, this band had a top 10 hit in the UK in 2008 with “Just For Tonight”. This single from 2010 reached #23.
6 11 YOU ME AT SIX Suckapunch 4 17
This Brit band just scored their highest charter on my chart with this. In 2014 they reached #10 with “Room To Breathe”.
9 12 THE LICKERISH QUARTET Do You Feel Better 9 16
16 13 THE CHAIN GANG OF 1974 Fall Into Me 13 8
This band is the synth-pop side of California native Kamtin Mohager. It will go top 10 next week. He has also been a member of Teenage Wrist and formed a new grungey band Heavenward last year. Teenage Wrist has had 9 songs on my chart, the highest chart “Taste Of Gasoline” at #50. Heavenward’s “Hole” reached #67 last November.
18 14 KYLE FALCONER Stress Ball 14 9
Another Scotsman, this is his first appearance on my chart. He was a member of the band The View that placed 3 songs in the UK top 20 in 2006/07, “Same Jeans” peaking at #3. Funny if you go to One Night Only’s Spotify page the View is a suggested similar band.
15 15 JESSIE WARE Remember Where You Are 15 10
The long-standing BR250 top 10 song gives Ware a 2nd song in my top 15. Last June “Spotlight” reached #10.
11 16 KAMERON MARLOWE Burn 'Em All 8 15
Singing competitions are fuel for a couple of up-and-coming Country artists on my chart. Marlowe was on “The Voice” in 2018 and at #19, Casey Barnes was on “Australian Idol” in 2009. Marlowe was on team Blake Shelton originally (Shelton’s “Minimum Wage” is a former 2 week #1 falling to #20 this week) but was ultimately stolen by Adam Levine.

1 1 FEE WAYBILL Faker 1(3) 8
The lead singer of the Tubes surprised me with this blistering track co-written by Richard Marx. The beginning of 2021 was seeing an absence of big songs for me as songs had been lingering on my chart a little longer than normal. Once this one clicked a few weeks ago it made the jump from 25-1. 40 years ago, his band was experiencing their first real mainstream success with “Talk To Ya Later” becoming a top 10 Rock hit (surprisingly only bubbling under the Hot 100 at #101) and their top 40 pop entry “Don’t Want To Wait Anymore”. Through the latter half of the ‘70’s they had some underground success and one minor hit “Don’t Touch Me There”. With the 1981 album “The Completion Backward Principle” they teamed up with producer David Foster and on ‘Later’ Steve Lukather of Toto which led to a combo of Pop sheen and their well-known quirkiness (“Sushi Girl”), a winning combination.
2 2 ALL STAR UNITED Take Me Away 2 15
My blog writing and podcast production has brought me many songs from the past that were forgotten or are new to me. I just this month started an oldie’s chart on Beyond Radio as there are other personal charters that feature older songs on their charts as well. This late ‘90s Christian Rock band had 13 songs on my personal chart between 1998 and 2010. This track is from the 2007 album “Love And Radiation” and becomes the band’s highest-charting song for me, pushing past the #3 “Worldwide Socialites Unite” in 2000 (not available on Spotify).
6 3 MCFLY Tonight Is The Night 3 11
This British Pop band is named after Marty McFly from “Back To The Future”. This is their first top 10 on my chart. In the UK they have had 19 top 10’s with 7 of those going to #1 since 2004. One of those #1’s was “Baby’s Coming Back” in 2007, a remake of the 1991 Jellyfish song (not available on Spotify).
9 4 BLAKE SHELTON Minimum Wage 4 4
This song saw some controversy upon its release, a millionaire singing about minimum wage, but it was ill-conceived when listening to the lyrics; “your love is money, you make a man feel rich on minimum wage”. I was instantly drawn to the propulsive upbeat Country-Rock of this tune, a certain #1 for me. It would be his third #1 for me and already his ninth top 5.
3 5 HARRY STYLES Treat People With Kindness 1(4) 25
What was a year ago a moderately successful song on my chart, ‘Kindness” has turned into a major hit for me. The superbly adorable video released on January 1 brought me such joy and its message was undeniable after the year we have had. I also experienced some of the nuances of the song that I had missed (the bongos and fuzzy guitar towards the end), even with a feature on a podcast episode. A lyric like “I don’t need all the answers, feeling good in my skin, I’ll just keep dancing” just adds to the allure. I love his old soul vibe. The video also made me fall in love with Phoebe Waller-Bridge and made me watch “Fleabag” finally.
7 6 BLACK STONE CHERRY Again 6 13
This is a second-generation Southern Rock band; co-founder John Fred Young is the son of the Kentucky Headhunters Richard Young. Not always a go-to genre, in 2012 they spent 2 weeks at #1 with “In My Blood”, their highest charter on the Rock radio chart and their only top 10.
4 7 HOT CHIP f/ JARVIS COCKER Straight To The Morning 2 15
21 years in and the UK synthpop band finally makes my top 10 for the first time, peaking at #2 a couple weeks ago. Joe Goddard spends time between Hot Chip and 2 Bears who made my top 40 in 2016 with another disco-y track “Not This Time”. Member Alan Doyle also splits time with LCD Soundsystem. That band’s song “Tonite”, my #4 song of 2018, was extensively analyzed on the Dec. 26, 2019, episode of Beyond Radio Presents. See Alt-Dance has made its appearance in 2021.
8 8 THE TEMPER TRAP Thick As Thieves 8 11
Another older title discovered from my blog writing is from the Australian band’s 2016 album of the same name. The song “Alive” from that album was the band’s sole #1 on my chart, though “Fader” and “Sweet Disposition” made my top 10 in 2010.
46 9 OLIVIA RODRIGO Driver's License 9 4
The emotional impact of this massive hit is not lost on me. The anguish in her voice, especially towards the end, is impressive. The amount of sad and sad-sounding songs that are big hits these days does not speak to me (see Harry Styles) but sometimes it is appropriate.
15 10 MERCYME Say I Won't 10 6
This Oklahoma band has been a force on Christian radio for 2 decades now. This week they notch another top 10 for me. Of their 16 top 25 songs on my chart, 6 have risen to #1 and another to #2. This seems destined for at least the top 5.
20 11 KEITH URBAN Forever 11 4
Could my king of the Country genre score an 18th #1 song on my chart? I was thinking the latest album “The Speed Of Now, Part 1” might not even get a top 10 though “Out The Cage” snuck up to #9. Again, definitely looking at the top 5, we’ll know over the next month or so. If it does, it’ll be the big ending to the song that does it. Love me some wailing guitar.
5 12 RED RUM CLUB The Elevation 3(2) 15
Extensive use of trumpet sets this indie Brit-Pop band apart and adds a fun factor. Their first top 10 for me but they have reached my chart 4 times in the last 2 years
13 13 THE SCORE f/ AWOLNATION Carry On 13 20
This song has spent 10 weeks in my top 20 without making the top 10, an interesting circumstance. The L.A. duo has a decidedly Imagine Dragons vibe but this one is more enjoyable for me than any recent Dragons song.
14 14 STEPS What The Future Holds 14 16
The UK’s late ‘90s version of Abba came back in 2017 and again in 2020 with 2 back-to-back #2 UK albums. They perform reliable Dance-Pop but this is the first time they’ve reached my top 50.
10 15 HONORARY ASTRONAUT Final Dream Machine 5 20
A side project for the Dear Hunter’s mastermind Casey Crescenzo, this doesn’t feel that off from that band’s expansive theatrical rock. Once I discovered that band in 2016, they racked up 16 top 20’s on my chart by the end of 2019. Of those 6 went to #1.
