Headline

5/30 Happy Memorial Day. We celebrate it with a new #1 on the BR250, the unstoppable “Can’t Stop The Feeling” as it surges past the starting to fade “Sound Of Silence”. It also ties with Onerepublic for the most added with 12 new charts each. RHCP move into the top 10 with “Dark Necessities”, up from 16. The Chainsmokers surge 9 spots to #12 while Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” slides up 7 to #17.

No big out of the box songs this week. The highest entry into the top 100 is by late 80’s, early 90’s alt band the Stone Roses, back after a long hiatus, up 127-52 with “All For One”. Several Eurovision songs ascend the top 100 with Dami Im at #32, Poli Genova at #65 and Sergey Lazarev at #74. The biggest leap into the top 250 belongs to Brad Paisley & Demi Lovato with “Without A Fight”

5/23 A lot of activity in the top 25 starting with Justin Timberlake ascending to #3 in his second week fueled by 24 more adds. Radiohead and Pink surge into the top 10 and Red Hot Chili Peppers move 56-16. Outside the top 25 the big moves into the top 100 are Dami Im with “Sound Of Silence” (different from the Disturbed remake) at #45, Ariana Grande’s “Into You” at 52 and Adele at #63 with “Send My Love”. The highest debut is the new single from OneRepublic “Wherever I Go” at #107 with 22 adds out of the box.

A couple of changes this week. The first is the charts have a date change. The chart week ends on Thursdays so I’ve decided to post the new charts on Monday and Tuesday. Also on the BR250 page instead of posting the previous months chart next to this week’s chart I will be posting a month to date chart so as to keep things more current. We’ll see if I can do that on the genre chart pages as well.

5/15 I was correct about Justin Timberlake but it was a big week overall. Added onto 32 charts out of the box the song enters the chart at #38 followed by another first week entry into the top 100 at $56 by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. 3 other major artists make huge moves. Radiohead splashes into the top 25 moving 293-23, Blink 182 227-47 and Alicia Keys 806-81.

chilipeppers

At the top Disturbed widens its lead over Meghan Trainor, now over 1000 points. Drake moves 14-4 with 12 adds this week and Calvin Harris & Rihanna make a nice leap from 45-7.

The aforementioned artists are the top 6 most added this week with at least 19 adds. The Chili Peppers were not far behind Timberlake with 29.

We’ve added a combined adult chart to the hybrid charts and have changed the Rhythmic Adult chart to just Rhythmic as it really spans pop, dance, r&b, international and alternative. It’s clear in the music landscape there are truly blurred lines. This is notably evidenced by the lead track from Keith Urban’s (as you may know one of my fav artists of all time) new cd Ripcord. The entire cd is genre busting but I am loving this mash up of country, alternative & dance influences. It’ll be interesting to see if he finally gets good exposure on hot ac or pop radio.

5/9 I had lots going on in the past week so running a tad behind schedule. Disturbed spend a third week and the top. Most of the top 25 lose points this week while “The Sound of Silence” only lost a fraction of a point. Its lead over Meghan Trainor is, I believe, insurmountable in the coming week.

Drake and The Chainsmokers make splashy moves into the top 25, while there are a number of first week entries into the top 250, lead by Calvin Harris & Rihanna, although another DJ, Zedd was added to 1 more chart this week. Both enter the top 100 at 45 and 72 respectively. Beyonce sees 5 new entries into the top 250 with the drop of “Lemonade”.

Next week will assuredly belong to Justin Timberlake as “Can’t Stop The Feeling” should have a huge opening week. The song of the summer sweepstakes begins now.

 

5/1 Happy May day. Very little action in the top 25. Disturbed expand their lead over rising Meghan Trainor. Gwen Stefani gains points and rebounds to #3. No new entries in the top 10 and the only new arrival to the top 25 is Nick Jonas f/ Tove Lo at #24. Outside the top 25 Pink makes a nice jump to #36, similar pattern as Tegan & Sara last week. The highest first week entry is Garbage at #246 with Empty. Pink & Garbage enjoy this week’s top 2 adds at 13 and 12 respectively. Hybrid charts are posted. Rhythmic Adult sees the most action at the top, while Disturbed makes a big leap to #1 on the Eclectic chart. Monthly genre charts will be up soon.

4/23 This is a BIG week at Beyond Radio. First after 6 months at the top of the BR200 Adele is dethroned by a remake of a 50 year old song. And a pretty powerful remake at that. Congrats to Disturbed for reaching the summit with “The Sound Of Silence”. The fact that song has not been promoted to HotAC yet is puzzling. I know that “rock” is a bad word at pop radio in recent years but the evidence is clear that this song deserves THAT exposure. IMO this is the reason Beyond Radio and the personal chart universe is where to discover new music.

Second I have started to post my own videos in addition to the weekly new music pick playlists that I have been posting to YouTube. It was time to put a personality behind the work here. I truly love what I do on this site and I want the audience to get to know me, my journey and my passion for discovering my next favorite song.

Third I have signed off on the website makeover that I have wanted to do for many years. It is very exciting to know that in the next couple of months so much is going to change here in a positive way.  For those of you who have frequented this site over the years, I thank you wholeheartedly. None of the core will change but more will be added to enhance the information already presented here.

4/16 Disturbed makes a nice move from 9-3 while the original song enters Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart at #6.

7 months after debuting at #288 and spending the last 12 weeks in the top 25, DNCE hits the top 10.

With 13 adds and big debuts, Tegan and Sara splash onto the chart at #99 with their latest single "Boyfriend".

History&Flashbacks

The impetus to Beyond Radio was actually a party I had in 1984 that will see its 32nd incarnation was the second Saturday in July. See this year’s top 100 below.

 

The original party revolved around a music countdown of the best songs of 1983 (a great music year IMO) based on the responses of friends who submitted their 50 favorite songs of the year. I wanted an overview of the year that had no musical boundaries. The Billboard top 100 of the year always featured the biggest pop songs but there was no chart that encompassed all genres.

 

Back in the 80’s Boston had a great radio scene. WFNX, WBCN were on the cutting edge of the new wave/alternative scene while KISS 108 with program director Sunny Joe White was unlike any top 40 station in the country. It was the perfect town for my music discovery needs and I wanted a party to reflect the diversity of the airwaves. Of course it was also about discovering new music through other people’s responses, beyond the airplay hits.

 

The party counted down the top 125 and the first party #1 was Modern Love by David Bowie (last year’s #1 was Bastille’s Pompeii). The rest of the top 10 is as follows

2 THE FIXX, One Things Leads to Another

3 IRENE CARA, Flashdance

4 BILLY IDOL, White Wedding

5 MICHAEL JACKSON, Beat It

6 DAVID BOWIE, China Girl

7 U2, New Year’s Day

8 TALKING HEADS, Burning Down The House

9 ELVIS COSTELLO, Everyday I Write The Book

10 THE CLASH, Rock The Casbah

 

On the party countdown #1, 2, 4, 7, 8 and 9 did not make the Billboard Top 100 of the year. Non radio fare also made the party countdown. At #50 there was Bonnie Tyler’s remake of “Have You Seen The Rain”.  Songs like Peter Godwin’s “Images of Heaven” at #61 and local guy Robert Ellis Orrall’s “I Couldn’t  Say No” at #79 showed the influence of Boston radio. Club music was represented by songs like S.O.S. Band’s “Just Be Good to Me” at #21, “It’s Raining Men” at #84, “So Many Men, So Little Time” at #104 and the first single by Wham, “Wham Rap (Enjoy What You Do)” at #122. This was a top 10 single in the UK and did not chart in the US.

 

The mix of music was really a great microcosm of the state of music in 1983, a huge year for new wave, Michael Jackson, U2 and Hall & Oates. U2 have become the kings of the party, amassing 3 #1’s, “Bad” in 1985 ( a true out of left field #1), “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” in 1987 and “One” in 1992. In addition 3 #2’s “Mysterious Ways in 1992, “Pride (In The Name of Love)” in 1984 and “With Or Without You” in 1987.

3/31 I started my personal chart back in the fall of 1974 after I first heard American Top 40. It was the Oct. 19 show and 2 things stood out. “Beach Baby” dropped from #4 to #26 and I heard “Overnight Sensation” by The Raspberries for the first time. It was like I found the Holy Grail.  That song went on to be my #4 of the year behind two Elton John’s, “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me” (for a time my #1 of all time) and “The Bitch Is Back” #3, The Commodores “Machine Gun” #2 and ahead of Abba’s “Waterloo” This is a real video from 1974. The outfits were rather glam, especially the Kiss boots.

 

I can’t remember if I started my chart right away but I do have most of my old charts in files. The earliest one I still have is from June 28, 1975. You’ll see on the list that I charted “Machine Gun” and the Partridge Family’s “You Are Always On My Mind” which were 1 year and 4 years old respectively, thus starting my trend to not follow the radio when creating my personal chart. You can listen to the chart of Spotify.

Curator’s Chart

My Top 100 of the week

“Hugs Not Drugs (Or Both)” spends a second week at #1 but another is not a sure thing. The Struts “Dirty, Sexy Money” could surge all the way to the top or my 2 favorite current alt bands, Nothing But Thieves and Atlas Genius could duke it out with “Our Time In The Universe”. The 2 other big debuts last week, Justin Timberlake and Keith Urban’s genre bending “Gone Tomorrow (Here Today)” rise into the top 25.

This week’s highest debut belongs to Canadian rockers

The Arkells with “Private School”. Should make a relatively quick ascent.
