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.
These charts are based on most of the charts available on M4B, Pulse, Haven, Buzzjack and UKMix along with the other personal charts that Beyond Radio tracks.
“Swan Song” brings Dua Lipa up from #11 to the pole position on 26 adds this week. It will doubtfully be her swan song. While Lauv’s “There’s No Way” is receiving pop airplay in the U.S. his latest release with Troye Sivan seems like it could prove to be a bigger hit on the strength of this week’s 18 adds, moving “I’m So Tired” up to #2.
Vampire Weekend could see their 1st pop (or at least hotac) crossover with the melodic “Harmony Hall”. It spends a second week in the top 10, moving up to #3.
Ariana Grande I’m sure will be all over the top 10 or 20 in the next 2 weeks as the new album bowed today. “7 Rings” gains 16 adds dropping from 1-4.
Elsewhere in the top 10 Mabel remains at #5, Foals slip 4-7 and Florence +the Machine rise 12-6 while 3 new titles surge into bottom of the top 10. The latest single from Little Mix jumps 127-8, J. Cole’s “Middle Child” up 258-9 and another from the dour Billie Eilish new at #10.
Also of note another 5 adds for “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” back up to #11 with 110 total adds and Catfish and the Bottlemen spend a 4th week in the top 15. Nice work.
You can listen to the top 30 plus this week on Spotify.
Check out the weekly Genre Adds Charts. They are based on the past 4 week trend in each genre.
If you are looking for a true alternative mix of pop, alt, rock, dance, country and more check out my personal chart and corresponding playlist to the right. It’s the way I wished pop radio sounded and actually kind of did in the past.
