Wow. One of their lowest charting songs (in the UK) EVER. When Magnificent got to number 42, it was considered their biggest failure of a single since the October days. And that was 42.... now YTBTAB is number 70? That's bad. What has happened? U2 dominated the singles charts in the ATYCLB and HTDAAB days, and now this??

(I know this is the midweek chart, but still, I'm worried it will not get any higher than this...)

From '84 to about '06 it was very rare for U2 to even miss the top 10. I expected a decline yes, but I was expecting at least 20's positions.... not 70!!!

Did a quick Wikipedia search - Ordinary Love peaked at #82 and Invisible at #65. In this day and age, #70 isn't that bad for a band like U2.

That is big news macawaca!

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: #49
- #49 with 136 plays and 1.572 million impressions(listeners)
-8 stations added the song (tied for 5th most adds)
-16 stations paying it and its up 148 spins w/w

Alternative: #36 up from #40
- #36 with 341 plays and 2.147 million impressions (listeners)
-23 stations added the song (#1 most added)
-52 stations paying it and its up 395 spins w/w (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
-4 New station added the song (#1 most added)
-14 stations paying it and its up 73 spins w/w

Triple A: #20 up from #23
- #20 with 239 plays and 0.927 million impressions
-23 stations paying it and its up 272 spins w/w. This is the biggest play increase on the format
-15 stations added the song (#1 most added song)


Its now charting within the top 50 on 3 different formats, one of which is a very important format from a potential exposure standpoint (Hot AC). Still nothing to write home about but again, its just getting started and its way too early to declare a success or failure from a chart standpoint.

Looks like they are up to 4.5m impressions on u.s radio across three formats ... invisible and song for someone (their last two moderate success songs) peaked at about 10m impressions ... I'd say they need 15-20m impressions across multiple formats holistically to get a chance at the pop stations where the big impression (listener) potential is. That's where I predict they'll release the kygo remix ... the kids will love it.

On a side note, caught my 7 year old son singing TBT today after just a few listens ... I guess it is very catch after all. Maybe they are onto something.

Isn't that #70 position in the UK only from a couple of days sales as it was released on Wednesday?

US Radio update, 12th Sept:

TBT moves up another 6 spots on Triple A, moving up to number 14, adding another 55 spins, to reach 294 spins total, with AI of 1.108m.

TBT moves up another 1 spot on Alternative, moving up to number 35, adding another 51 spins, to reach 392 spins total, with AI of 2.351m.

TBT moves up another 3 spots on Hot AC, moving up to number 46, adding another 28 spins, to reach 174 spins total, with AI of 1.751m.

If it had some further promo maybe it would really start moving? I'll leave the detail and analysis to Cosmo.

Also interesting on both Triple A and Alternative that the two big movers this week are U2 and Beck, who are playing together each night on JT30.

Oh crikey. What do you think happened? What you're talking about was 15 years ago.

Look at the charts from back then and let us know how many of those acts are still charting.

I'm keeping an eye on the AC format as I see no sign of TBT there but I'm optimistic it might break through. I also am keeping an eye on the Dance format to see if the Kygo mix makes its way there....

Wasn't it Song for Someone that made a somewhat surprise appearance on AC and did reasonably well there?
