#BILLCSTop30 #662 – March 27/23

There’s quite a shakeup at the top in this edition, where some long-lasting favourites make room for newer ones. And three new entries keep the fresh songs flowing into the chart, and they’re all independent releases!

REMINDER: As with the BILLCS  New Music Report, I’m now embedding the video link in the artwork for the song or the artist, which hopefully will allow the blog page to load faster and smoothly.  So you now have to click on the photos above the write up to hear the song or watch the video. Let me know how it works for you! I am also using Alt Text where possible to assist readers with visual impairments.

The best places to communicate with me continue to be Twitter @billcs or Instagram @thebillcs or Facebook @BILLCSMusicProjects. Follow this blog using the “Follow” button at the bottom of the home page.

Check out my ONLINE RADIO SHOWS below too as they are increasingly tied in with this blog.  

Cerrone & Mercer featuring Brendan Reilly - The Only One

It’s “The Only One” by Cerrone & Mercer with British vocalist Brendan Reilly that takes over at the top moving up 6-1. It’s a fantastic 70’s disco-inspired track thanks to Cerrone, the popular disco producer from that era. It’s the third #1 for fellow French producer Mercer, who reached the top last year with “Aretha” and in 2018 with “Satisfy”.

Immediately looking to challenge for #1 is British dance producer Lewis Thompson with vocalist/songwriter Clementine Douglas with “Enchanté” soaring 10-2.

Afrojack & James Arthur - Lose You

Still on the rise within the Top 5 are Afrojack and James Arthur with “Lose You”, climbing 5-3.

Frank Walker featuring Ella Henderson, "I Go Dancing"

And also landing quickly in the Top 5 is “I Go Dancing” by Canadian dance producer Frank Walker with UK singer Ella Henderson, which jumps 9-4.

Famba feat. Glasgow KI$$, "No Sleep"

Another Canadian producer, Famba, gets his fourth Top 10 entry with the techno-infused “No Sleep”, featuring Glasgow KI$$, which moves up 11-8.

Everything But The Girl, "Nothing Left to Lose"

UK duo Everything But The Girl also scores their fourth Top 10 entry with the drum ‘n bass-infused “Nothing Left To Lose”, which rises 13-10. Their last entry, however was right at the turn of the century, “Temperamental”, which reached #2 in 2000. Be sure to check out the video which is shot in one take.

N i G H T S - Boyband

Philadelphia duo N i G H T S could be headed for the Top 10 again with the eclectic but intriguing sounds of the brief “Boyband”, which climbs 22-16.

SG Lewis feat. Charlotte Day Wilson & Channel Tres, "Fever Dreamer"

The beautiful house track “Fever Dreamer” by SG Lewis, Charlotte Day Wilson and Channel Tres seemed to be stuck near the bottom of the chart, but breaks into the Top 20, jumping 23-18.

The Fastest Riser on the chart is “I Feel Like Dancing” by Jason Mraz, which soars 30-20. It’s from his upcoming album Mystical Magical Rhythmical Radical Ride, and has another fun video which you should check out above.

The Boy From The South, "Amazing-Man"

The Highest Debut belongs to a Spanish singer/songwriter who has a similar style to Jason Mraz, but in his own unique way. The Boy From The South makes his debut on the chart with the whimsical “Amazing-Man” at #25.

St Humain, "Memento"

His EP Metadramatic is full of great songs, most of which were released as singles and written up in these blog pages. His name is St Humain, originally from Singapore but now based in Sydney, Australia, and one of those songs, “Memento”, bows at #27.

And arriving at #28 is new Toronto singer/songwriter Tyler Lorette who shows a lot of promise with the emotional ballad “Shattered”. If you enjoy Conan Gray and JVKE like I do, then you’ll enjoy Tyler’s song too.
