The Voices In My Head
Hot 100 Roundup—12/8/12

Chart Notes—12/8/12

From the Ridiculous To the Sublime
Hot 100 Roundup—7/7/12

Maroon 5—“One More Night” #42 Less irritating than “Payphone”, but also less catchy, with both the band and producer Max Martin running on automatic. Since “Payphone” still hasn’t peaked (God help us), I’m not even sure why they released this. … Continue reading

Hot 100 Roundup—9/12/10

George Strait—”The Breath You Take” #95 Miranda Lambert—”Only Prettier” #96 Brad Paisley—”Anything Like Me” #100 Everybody, it seems, is taking their end of summer break. No new pop records on the chart at all, not to mention rap or hip … Continue reading

New this week—7/25/10

New this week—3/28/10

New this week—12/20/09

Ludacris—”How Low” #13 Since Ludacris announced his intention to make more serious records a couple of years back, things have shifted in the pop world. The recession created an audience that wanted anything other than the serious, and Ludacris wisely … Continue reading

New this week—11/22/09

Shakira featuring Lil Wayne—”Give It Up To Me” #58 With Timbaland producing, this starts off sounding like a Nelly Furtado record, but after Lil Wayne’s short, sweet rap, Shakira takes over, and actually manages to reduce both Wayne and Timbaland … Continue reading
