Paradise Trending, The Cure for Drowning in your Bad Habits, and a Podcast


On the Trending 100 the top 4 songs are all in this weeks BR250 top 10. Led by Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” which moves up to #7 on the BR250, it’s the return of Robert Smith from the seminal alt band The Cure that lands at #2 on both charts. Chvrches’ collab “How Not To Drown” has the right ingredients to make a splash, though it is far behind the juggernaut “Good 4 U” at #1 on the BR250. Lorde used her solar power to land at #3 trending and #4 on the main chart. Rounding out the top 4 on the Trending chart is no stranger to the upper reaches of either chart. Dua Lipa’s “Love Again” becomes the ninth song from the Moonlight Edition of her powerhouse album “Future Nostalgia” to make the Trending top 5.

On the podcast front the latest episode is called Paradise Theater. In this episode after a 3 month hiatus, and the final in the Podcast-list 006 arc (before our top 10’s), we explore a bit of where popular music and theater meet. Artists like the Dear Hunter, Styx and Panic At The Disco all fit into certain aspects of this. We throw a little Sade, Fiona Apple and Beck into the mix and of course a couple of tangents. What seemed, at first, to be a shorter episode, ended up with 2 false endings. In the end, even though Billie Eilish could have killed the party, it all ends on a super cool joyous note.
