Top 30 Songs for April 3-9, 2022

It’s hard to believe we’re already into April, as 2022 seems to be rushing by at a breakneck speed. All of the songs in last week’s top five remain in that rarefied group, with a bit of shuffling around, however, the seductive “Caviar” by Two Feet holds onto it’s #1 spot for a second week, while Portugal. The Man‘s “What, Me Worry?” moves up to #2. There’s lots of movement on the rest of the chart, though, as older songs move down to make way for newer songs on their way up. Entering the top 10 is the dramatic and haunting “Deception”, by British producer/composer Noodle Beard, with vocals by Hannah Reem.

A whopping five new songs make their debut this week, three of them by veteran acts who’ve had numerous appearances on my chart: “Wild Child” by The Black Keys, “Wild” by Spoon (replacing “The Hardest Cut”, which drops off after a 15-week run), and “My Love” by Florence + The Machine. The other two new entries are by acts making their first appearance: “On My Knees” by Australian alternative electronic band RÜFÜS DU SOL and “The Hurt Within” by Welsh psychedelic rock band Holy Coves, another act I learned about as a guest moderator for Fresh On The Net.

  1. Good stuff. From your new entries, I think I like The Black Keys the best. I only started paying closer attention to them last year when they released their then-new album “Delta Kream”. Looks like “Wild Child” is the opener of an upcoming album titled Dropout Boogie. I also dig that Holy Coves tune.
