The Top Singles Chart for France hasn't been updated yet, it's showing as of September 1, I believe.

fwiw, this interscope page (U2 “YOU’RE THE BEST THING ABOUT ME” | See and Hear What's Popular on Radio This Week) says that it's going for adds 9/12.

i think we'll see some more promotion in the coming week.

So any ideas why the band released on a Wednesday? Surely they knew it wouldn't chart high with on 2 days worth of sales and next to no promotion?

The going theory (I believe from Alan Cross) is that radio programmers always meet on Wednesday's to discuss new music, make playlist changes, etc. The band seemingly wanted the new song to be the focal point of that Wednesday (Sept. 6th) programmer's meeting.

So here are the updates I have from Mediabase as of 10p ET in order of Format size/importance

You're the Best Thing About Me:

Hot AC:
- Not currently charting
-3 stations added the song
-13 stations paying it and its up 58 spins w/w

Alternative: #47
- #47 with 190 plays and 1.348 million impressions (listeners)
-11 stations added the song (#1 most added)
-46 stations paying it and its up 226 spins w/w (it doesn't match the number in the rank but I think that is a timing issue). This is the 3rd biggest play increase on the format

AC:
- Not currently charting in the top 50

Active Rock:
- Not currently charting but will likely chart in a few days
-1 New station added the song
-10 stations paying it and its up 33 spins w/w (yes, its only the past 2 days).

Triple A: #39
- #39 with 99 plays and 0.419 million impressions
-22 stations paying it and its up 116 spins w/w (yes, its only the past 2 days). This is the biggest play increase on the format
-6 stations added the song (#1 most added song)

I don't think we will see a big "push" until next week. I also can tell that this song will easily be top 3 and likely hit #1 on Triple A (smallest format) because those stations LOVE U2.

Thanks Cosmo! Keep us updated. I think it will do very well once it's "pushed".

You are doing great work for the people! Much appreciated.

What is active rock? It reminds of me of active wear, so I am picturing aerobics being involved. Assuming not.

So here are the updates I have from Mediabase as of 3p ET in order of Format size/importance

You're the Best Thing About Me:

Hot AC:
- Not currently charting
-6 stations added the song (tied for 4th most adds)
-15 stations paying it and its up 120 spins w/w

Alternative: #40 up from #47
- #40 with 279 plays and 1.834 million impressions (listeners)
-17 stations added the song (#2 most added)
-50 stations paying it and its up 328 spins w/w (it doesn't match the number in the rank but I think that is a timing issue). This is the 3rd biggest play increase on the format

AC:
- Not currently charting in the top 50

Active Rock:
- Not currently charting but will likely chart in a few days
-2 New station added the song (#1 most added)
-11 stations paying it and its up 55 spins w/w

Triple A: #23 up from #39
- #23 with 201 plays and 0.802 million impressions
-23 stations paying it and its up 228 spins w/w. This is the biggest play increase on the format
-14 stations added the song (#1 most added song)

-Its getting traction on Alternative and Triple A but lets add some context:
-The Miracle was # 1 on Triple A for 8 days and peaked at #25 on Alternative
-EBW peaked at # 6 on Triple A (shocking for me) and #23 on Alternative
-SFS peaked in the 20's on Triple A and didn't chart on Alternative that I could tell
-Invisible peaked at #1 on Triple A and #25 on Alternative
-I have Boots and Magnificent tracked somewhere…I just need to find them

-Hot AC is giving it a chance with 15 stations playing it but lets see where it heads from here.

-YouTube views are at ~1.4 million and seem to be slowing slightly but its a lyric video and not the official video…not sure that means much but it is what it is and if the video is done well, it might provide better context to the song and help it (Beck- Up all Night with You is a video I LOVE and it makes me really like the song)

-iTunes weighted rating is a 4.34 from 232 ratings (I personally gave it a 4/5). This doesn't tell us much as most of these ratings are likely from fans who purchased the single but I would think would rate it fairly (there may be bias there….not around these parts though

Its funny but a lot of SOI ratings were artificially brought down because people gave them 1 star reviews just because it was on their iPhone.


I don't think we will see a big "push" until next week as programers (as I have read in this forum) don't make decision on new adds until Friday's and well this came out only last Wednesday. So far, nothing special but its very earlier yet.

Down here in South Florida, we have the alternative station "The Shark" -- an inferior successor to The Buzz from years ago.

There appears to be a decided bias against playing U2 on this station. When it first kicked off, you'd hear Beautiful Day occasionally. But when I called on an all-request weekend I was met with derision upon requesting Vertigo.

I sample the station while driving and never hear U2 played. They also have a live tracking of their spins and U2 is never listed. So I don't expect to hear Best Thing down here, unfortunately.
