THO 100 Update for the week ending June 14, 2008

Reba McEntire has had only moderate success on the THO 100, scoring 13 hits and one that broke the top 10 (1999's "What Do You Say"). But this week she is a star as "Every Other Weekend" (featuring Kenny Chesney) is the highest debut on the chart. It is her first THO hit since last year's "Because Of You" duet with Kelly Clarkson. Elsewhere on the chart, Coldplay is the largest point gainer in the same week that their new album "Viva La Vida..." drops. They also have the #2 song on the chart for a third consecutive week.

Top Hits of the 1980s

As many of you know, THO has been conducting our Ultimate 80s music polls to determine the top songs of the 1980s. What we have so far are reliable charts of the top songs for each year in the 80s, based on many thousands of votes. Now we want to combine those to determine the best songs overall in the 80s, not just within each year. We've taken the top 20 songs from each year and put them into a new set of polls. After enough votes, we'll publish the full 1980s chart. We are even planning a press release, as we believe this will be one of the largest efforts ever to rank those great songs from the 1980s. We hope you will visit the site and vote in a few of our polls.

THO 100 Update for the week ending May 31, 2008

There are some big moves inside the top 10 of the THO 100 this week, but possibly the most surprising is the move by Sara Bareilles' "Love Song." If there is anyone living who has not heard this song, we want to hear from you, because this one seems to be everywhere. Now in its 35th week on the chart, it rises to a new high at #3. Reaching #1 is probably not possible though, not only because Madonna continues her lock on the top spot for the seventh consecutive week, but also because Coldplay bullets up to #2 and is the largest Point Gainer for the second time with "Violet Hill." Also, Rihanna moves from #10 to #4 with "Take A Bow."

This is the 100th post since starting this blog/feed in December - thank you very much for reading!
