Canadian Premiere of Sleepwalker

Here’s a recording of the premiere of SW on CHUM-FM:

It’s the same as the CD version, but cut off at the end?


All Top 20 Hits Are Not Equal

Here’s something that I’m wondering about.  I was looking at the AI numbers for the songs that were near Adam on the HAC chart.

I was trying to see what might be sneaking up on Adam.  I noticed the numbers for TT and started thinking about cali50’s post a few days ago (re the discussion at MJ’s blog).

It seems to me that Kris entered the Top 20 with an exceptionally low AI (even by HAC standards).  So — I’m drawing the conclusion that a song can get enough spins on a station in time slots that are less than desirable — just so the station can fulfill an obligation to spin (free bagel twists, anyone?) and thus the AI remains low.

I already believed that reaching  Top 20 on HAC does not define a hit (althought the jp poster says otherwise).  This convinces me that (taken alone, without considering other factors — especially sales) a Top 20 HAC position means almost nothing.

I will award a prize to anyone who can figure out what I’m saying here.

(Least) favourite current top 40 songs

We talk quite a bit about the music we like. I’m curious what your favourite and least favourite songs in the top 40 are right now.

I’ll start. I’m excluding IIHY because I can’t be objective about that song. Some song I don’t know well enough to give an opinion about.


  1. Cee-Lo Green – Fuck You
  2. Eminem/Rihanna – Love the Way You Lie
  3. Flo Rida – Club Can’t Handle Me
  4. Rihanna – Only Girl
  5. Eminem – Not Afraid
  6. Mike Posner – Cooler than me
  7. OneRepublic – Secrets
  8. Kesha – Take it Off
  9. BOB – Airplanes
  10. Nelly – Just a Dream

Least favourite:

  1. Enrique Iglesias – I like it
  2. Maroon 5 – Misery
  3. Taylor Swift – Mine
  4. Usher – DJ Got Us Fallin In Love
  5. Jason Derulo – Ridin’ Solo
  6. Katy Perry – California Gurls
  7. John Mayer – Half of My Heart
  8. Katy Perry – Teenage Dream
  9. Auburn – La La La
  10. BOB – Magic

The radio prediction post

I love to predict things.

So can we throw some out here? It doesn’t have to be related to Adam.

Here are some of mine:

  1. Mine will barely make top 10 or just miss it
  2. Katy Perry is the next #1, after that Bruno
  3. Rihanna’s new song will make top 3, but not hit #1
  4. Fuck You will make top 10, but not top 5
  5. IIHY will reach the same peak as WWFM
  6. All this will be proven wrong in about 8 weeks at which point I will delete this post and claim I never said these things

FYE is new single in Australia

ausp0p has stated that Sony Music has sent FYE to Australian radio Monday morning. I didn’t see this coming at all, but I believe FYE hasn’t ever been in released in Australia. I think New Zealand will probably still get a new single as FYE did go Top 10 there.


Who will be nominated for BNA this year?

Who do you think will be nominated for BNA at the Grammies 2010? Predict up to 5 nominees! Cosem and I already have a bet with JTF that Kesha will NOT get a nomination. If we win JTF has to buy Robyns new album (bodyparts 1.0) and if we loose we have to buy Jersey Shore Soundtrack.
