Beyond Radio is the place where music discovery and music nostalgia collide. It is your one-stop source for playlists, music charts, remembrances and recommendations. Our Podcast and music therapy playlists combine elements of nostalgia and discovery, while my blog entries reflect on our musical past through the lens of my personal charts from decades past. I weave a story that includes the connection between artists, chart facts and personal anecdotes that hopefully conjure a connection to the soundtrack of your own life. The current charts and playlists are updated monthly or bi-monthly (bi-weekly for the BR250) and are curated based on a passionate audience that produce their own personal charts weekly.
The entire top 20 are in their 1st month of release with 5 brand new titles, including Dua Lipa, Florence & The Machine, Utada Hikaru with Skrillex and James Blake. Leading that pack is the latest from Foals with “Exits”, their 1st new music in 4 years. They bound in at #4 with 14 adds. Another alt band making the top 10 is Vampire Weeeknd, at #10 with “Harmony Hall”
Ariana Grande boasts 39 adds in her second week with “7 Rings”, cementing a #1 placement. Sam Smith and Normani slip to #2 with half those adds. Maren Morris gains an impressive 13 adds, moving her song “Girl” into the #3 slot, could this be a crossover for her?
After a quiet week Lizzo rebounds back into the top 10 with “Juice” while Catfish and Bottlemen definitely have a hit on their hands, spending a 3rd week in the top 10 with “Longshot”.
You can listen to the top 30 plus this week on Spotify.
