SOE Singles - Chart Performance

Sorry for the overlap with TBT thread, just thought it sensible to have a tread named appropriately seeing as though we are discussing GOOYOW and AS in the other thread.

From the other thread following news that both GOOYOW and AS will be released to radio on different formats:

This strategy probably shows they are more interested in cumulative AI than the chart position of singles. It will also keep these songs a bit ‘out of the way’ of TBT if it is still going strong.

If both songs go ok in totally different formats, and TBT has 9-10 million AI, then it is possible ‘new u2’ is hitting 20 million plus people a day in the US.

It’s all about album chart position at this point, and this is probably the best strategy for that.

GOOYOW is on the Triple A spincrease chart with 20 spins from 7 stations.

No sign of American Soul

Where has everyone been? I mean there can't be anything bigger going on than here in this chart forum….oh thats right

Well, Im holding off from listening to the album until Friday, so maybe Ill just write to myself

You're The Best Thing About Me:

I have noted this since the start of the Best Thing chart thread but Hot AC is a very slow burn of a format, to the point that Song for Someone and Every Breaking Wave both hit their spin & AI peaks around 104 & 106 days after first charting respectively.

Well, in its 76th day on the Hot AC chart, Best Thing hits a peak in both spins and AI

Position: #17 (peak was #16)
Spins: 1,794 (+58) and this is a peak total
AI: 9.229 million AI and this is a peak total

I firmly believe that it has some time left to keep rising and potentially cross over to "Top 40" stations. It currently sits at #17 and if you look at the top 20 songs on Hot AC:
-75% of the top 20 songs are charting in the top 50 of the "Top 40" chart(yes, I know how ridiculous that statement reads with all the top this and that)
-87% of the top 15 songs are charting in the top 50 of the "Top 40" chart

Yes, U2 is old and likely older than all of the other artists on the chart but fuck it, it is what it is and shit, they sound just as young as anyone else on the chart!

Triple A they are holding steady at #3 with 611 spins and 1.625 million AI

They are also at #139 on the overall US radio charts, which is only 1 spot below their peak of #138.

Lastly, this is the 52nd consecutive day that they have had a total AI above 10 million.

FWIW, Just finished another week of travel, and regardless of charts, TBT was all over the radio and SXM's the Spectrum. TBT is also still in the Daily & Weekly Top 5 countdown that's also on the Spectrum.

I've already heard GOOYOW as well, and that song is MADE for HAC. I know some pretty good songs by U2 have failed to "cross over" in the past few decades, but the vibe around this album is unbelievably positive.

I've always felt like U2 songs get better over time after being played live on tour(s). Since SOE songs have been played in various forms for a few years now, maybe we will get the best of each version on the album. I'm holding out until Dec 1 even though you can get all the songs already. I have not gone to a store to buy an album since 2004, but I will this Friday. Deluxe version for me and this album should be a SMASH hit,

But I know that us chart watchers here have seen good song after good song panned by radio for quite some time now. Does anyone else think that the songs on SOE are just TOO good to be left only to "Adult alternative" again? My 18 year old daughter has heard most of the album and so have her friends,,,,they spent 4 hours yesterday trading their favorites and listening to various tracks.

I turned the blue tooth off in my car when they started doing that...I want to feel that anticipation on Friday that's been missing for so long,,,

GOOYOW is 3rd on the Triple A Spincrease chart with 55 spins from 12 stations. It will likely enter the Triple A chart within 3 days or so.

American Soul has 1 add on Alternative (Sirius Radio)

So a month or so back I posted about my shock at how bad Katy Perry did on the radio charts. Her lead single did jump to the top of the charts (top 10) but quickly fell off. Her subsequent 3 singles failed to crack the top 100 or maybe even 200. Kind of crazy when you think of how she DOMINATED radio over the years.

Truth be told, it is my opinion that it had nothing to due with age or backlash of any sort but rather the songs just were not good (at least catchy like her previous singles).

The most recent surprise for me is Eminem, whose new single featuring Beyonce peaked recently at #189 and is now at #197. It may very well rise again but he was an artist at one point who would shoot to the top of the radio charts and now it seems like U2.....those automatic airplay days are over.

Im not saying its a bad song (I haven't heard it yet), just noting how times change.

On a more positive note, Becks newest single "Up All Night" hits a new peak at #125 on US Radio. I like this song a lot and Im rooting for him.

Am I the only one who thinks it would be a huge mistake if U2 don’t release “Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way” right now?
