DeWitt’s Top Artists of 2015

This is the second in a set of three end-of-year music stats posts. I published my top songs yesterday and will publish my top albums tomorrow. I keep track of every track and podcast episode I listen to on Itunes, my Ipods, Spotify, and Rdio (R.I.P.) by way of Last.fm scrobbling. If you don’t have …

DeWitt’s Top Songs of 2015

This is the first in a set of three end-of-year music stats posts. Going with songs first because they are the most ephemeral, followed by top artists, then top albums. I keep track of every track and podcast episode I listen to on Itunes, my Ipods, Spotify, and Rdio (R.I.P.) by way of Last.fm scrobbling. …

Billboard 5: I’m like, “Hey, what’s up? Hello.”

The status of the Hot 100 is abysmal right now. So much garbage. The queen of this garbage, Meghan Trainor with “Dear Future Husband” has risen to 18. 18? Gross. I am excited, though, that “Shut Up + Dance,” the theme song of my existence, has risen to #5. “Don’t you dare look back…” 3. …

Billboard 4: You’re Always Worth It

Billboard 3: What are You Waiting For?

“Dear Future Husband” continues to climb and “Uptown Funk” remains at the top. Clearly ya’ll have not followed my directives. Though “King Kunta” did make a gain. Overall, not a good week. 1. “Uptown Funk”- Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars Those hair curlers…why? That is all. 2. “Sugar”- Maroon 5 The wedding-singer theme of the …

Billboard 2: Get the Funk Out of Here

I skipped last week because HR Chart didn’t do a video last week. However, nothing has changed since I last commented. The top three videos are the same as they were in my first Billboard post. This stagnancy is typical, unfortunately. 1. “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars This obnoxious song has been …

Billboard 1: Chart is in a Funk

This post is the first of what I foresee to be regular commentary on the weekly Billboard Top 100, aided by the killer YouTube channel, HRChart. I plan to comment on the top three songs and any other developments that interest me. #1: “Uptown Funk ft. Bruno Mars” by Mark Ronson Enjoying its eleventh week …
