Top 30 Songs for September 26-October 2, 2021

Not a lot of changes on this week’s Top 30. twenty øne piløts hold the top spot for a second week with “Saturday”, while Willow Smith’s rousing kiss-off anthem “t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l”, closes in at #2 and Lord Huron’s “Mine Forever” climbs two spots to #3. Two songs enter the top 10: “Gang of Youth’s “the angel of 8th ave.” and Cannons’ “Bad Dream”. The lone debut track this week is “Bitter Taste”, a comeback of sorts for 65-year-old Billy Idol. It’s good to have him back on one of my music lists after a long absence. The autobiographical song addresses his near-fatal motorcycle accident in 1990, in which he nearly lost his right leg.

  1. Lord Huron remains a favorite. Their sound is just amazing!

    Also, I had completely missed Billy Idol’s new EP. The lead single isn’t bad. I like some of his ’80s songs like “Hot in the City”, “White Wedding”, “Rebel Yell”, “Eyes Without a Face”…Well, now that I list these tunes, I guess I dig a good deal of his ’80s output. I see he still has Steve Stevens. That guy is a beast of a guitarist!

      1. I got on Twitter in 2014, but didn’t know what to do with it until I started my blog a year later, at which time I figured Twitter could be useful to help promote it. Turns out it was, up to a point. I also tweet about my left-wing political leanings, which I realize 99% of my Twitter followers are not interested in at all, or else wish to steer clear of politics. I’ve thought about creating a separate Twitter page for my political rants, but don’t have the energy to manage two accounts.
