No Frills Late Chart Blog: Tuned-On! Top 30 #350 – April 11, 2011

It’s not often that the chart is posted late, but between dealing with personal staff and getting ready to head to Grand Ol’ Opry land for five days then good things have to wait a bit.

“Love 2 Baby” triumphs for a second chart appearance at the top for the talented Christian TV.  But that feat is pretty much fleeting as Eric Saade’s amazing triumph “Popular” soars 18-2, and looks ready for a hefty stay at the top.  Frankmusik’s gorgeous ballad “Hurt You Again” has to settle for third place though in another chart year it would be a chart-topper.  Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” appears to have longer legs than I’d imagined but slips to #4, and Adam Tyler gets a second Top 5 hit on my chart with “I Won’t Let You Go”.  You can hear one of Adam’s latest projects, “Time Bomb”, right here.

Adele mach #2 on this chart, “Someone Like You”, rises to #8 – slow but steady I promise you.  New to the Top 10 besides “Popular” are Andy Grammer’s MTV O video award nominee “Keep Your Head Up” (see the chart for the link) and Lady GaGa’s now ubiquitous “Born This Way”… which has made an impact in another version….

Jumping straight to the debuts, I blogged about Elouise’s live version of “Born This Way” a week ago, and it’s such an impressive redux that it joins GaGa’s version on my chart at #21.  Top 10 bound?  I think so – which will make it 3/3 for Elouise as recent #6 hit “The Winner Takes It All” leaves the chart.  Then at #25 is Databoy, who I enjoyed so much at the Superfraiche show in New York City 10 days ago.  The free download of the Brad Walsh remix of “Stupid” bows on the chart.  Aussie Nelson Clemente is such an underrated talent.  He has a solid EP Love.Feel.Dangerous on release as a free download which I blogged about a while back.  The dark but danceable “No Protection” arrives at #28.  Richard Barone’s album Glow has been long-lasting on my iTouch in regular rotation since its release in September.  An offbeat track “Sanctified” – which takes a cue from late 60’s early 70’s guitar rock despite an acoustic beginning – premieres at #29.  The title track from Barone’s album got to #2 last year.

I’m saving an entire paragraph for the song at #30 because I honestly never thought it would appear in my chart.  And the performer really does not need any extra promotion.  But the song’s infectious club beat – yes I still think an audience for a soccer game will arrive on the scene at any minute – reminds me that performers that I’m not fond of often make good, fun records.  So for the first time since 1999, Britney Spears appears in my chart with “Till The World Ends”.  Her last song to chart?  “(You Drive Me) Crazy” – and it got to #24.  Only “And Then We Kiss” (not one of her biggest hits) and “Toxic” could have come close to charting in the intervening years.  Looks like “Till The World” could pass that “Crazy”.

The middle of the chart is quite busy, so don’t overlook great songs by Patrick Wolf, Kyle Brylin, Jamie Woon (I look forward to Mirrorwriting’s arrival next week), Bright Light Bright Light, and Brandon Flowers.
