1st Wave was playing a dance remix of a new U2 song? I thought they only played new wave/post punk from 1976-83...

The music world is discouraging when Nickelback, opps I mean Imagine Dragons' new song goes straight to #1. And the song is as bad as anything Nickelback has done. In fact it's horrible! Makes you wonder about the listeners out there.

Edit: Ch 33 is called "1st wave"


My first listen to the single mix, I didn't like the song. Now, I listen to it 5x a day and really like it. I hear new sounds almost every day and it's catchy as heck. The chiming guitar in the background of the chorus is beautiful and I am really digging the bass and drums. Take away the "a boy" lyric and this song would be near perfect for me (it doesn't even bother me anymore).

This mix makes me really excited to hear the studio mixes of Little Things and Blackout.

No they cover the first wave of alternative all the way up until about 1990 or so (no grunge or noise rock type or hardcore stuff though, mostly post-punk&new wave/jangle pop/indie/synthpop derived stuff).

It kind of rubs me the wrong way that they're playing a new U2 song though..

Is there a video clip for this song? I keep wanting to see it pop up on the various cable music channels that we have here in Australia but there's no sign of it.

The only video available for now is the lyric video.

Good jump up in spins today on Hot AC, where it adds 40 spins.
Slow and steady gains on the other 3 formats.

Good news there for Hot AC. Any word on just regular AC format? Or are they not pushing that until the 22nd or 23rd?? I forget.
I would think that these two formats are where the real platform for this song is going to be.

No sign of it on the top 50 for AC, but Cosmo might know if it is beyond that?

I can't see past the top 50 but my understanding is that it's being pushed to that format next week. It was on the "spincrease" chart with 3 spins up w/w from 3 stations. I want to say the song is just outside the top 50 for this format because the #50 song has 15 spins.

Either way, the song has only been out for 2 weeks and is still gaining on all 4 formats that it's charting on. I'm of the belief that this song is going to be more successful than most think.

You're the Best Thing About Me:

Top 40:
-Not currently charting (haven't in years)
-1 station added the song (only 1 station in El Paso…but it broke through the format!!) El Paso continues to rock out to this song playing it 24 times over the past week…

Just so I know, does this top 40 refer to the UK singles chart?

What time today will the official UK singles charts be released? In the midweek charts it was out of the top 100 completely

No, this refers to the Top 40 radio format in the US.

I would totally forget about the UK chart, no promo means no hope over here

Yeah, wouldn't take much to get on the top 50 on the AC chart really as you say. The AC chart (and biggish AI numbers/exposure) is only a good format if you can get into the top 10 really. Outside of the top 10 is only the equivalent of top spot on Triple A.
