Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 9/11/21: Milky Chance is No. 1 with ‘Colorado’

Walk the Moon

It’s always interesting when Madison goes on vacation. A week after the Alt18 Countdown saw pretty significant changes with host Madison out, it snapped back with seven new or returning songs joining the weekly alt chart.

But let’s start at the top, where we have a new No. 1. Milky Chance’s catchy “Colorado” swaps spots with Bastille’s “Distorted Light Beam” to become the 10th song to take the top spot on the countdown in 2021.

Måneskin held at No. 3, CHVRCHES cruised up to No. 4 with “Good Girl,” and Twenty One Pilots rounded out the Top 5 with “The Outside.”

Now things get a little topsy-turvy. “Elegant Stranger” by Atlas Genius dropped off after hitting No. 5 last week, while Saint Motel returned at No. 6 after “It’s All Happening” dropped off the countdown last week. It seems to have replaced Vance Joy and “Missing Piece,” which fell off the countdown, as did The Happy Fits and “Another Try.”

Manchester Orchestra’s “Telepath” reached No. 8. It’s also the People’s Champ Song of the Week, as voted by the Finding Alt18 Discord (join here!).

The Foo Fighters, SEB, Arrested Youth, and Sir Sly fell off the countdown. The Killers returned and The Marias moved up to No. 11 with “Hush.”

Here’s the AltCharts countdown on Spotify. And YouTube.

Want to see how I knew “Colorado” is the 10th new No. 1? Check out our community spreadsheet here.

Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 9/4/21: Bastille tops, The Happy Fits join

Vance Joy

Another week of swapping places on and off theAlt18 Countdown. Sir Sly, Cold War Kids, Foo Fighters, Holly Humberstone and Atlas Genius all had songs return this week after some time off. They replace Alt18 stalwarts Glass Animals, Modest Mouse and The Killers, among others.

Over on the Finding Alt18 Discord the group voted Saint Motel’s “It’s All Happening” the People’s Champ Song of the Week, but it fell completely off the countdown.

The Marias are new to the Alt18 this week with “Hush,” while The Happy Fits give the countdown another try with “Another Try.” Up at the top, it’s Bastille again at No. 1, followed by Milky Chance’s “Colorado” and Måneskin’s “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE.”

CHVRCHES notably fell off the list this week with former No. 1 “He Said, She Said,” but joined with “Good Girls.”

Thank you to FastrThnU for posting the Alt18 on Discord this weekend while I was out in the woods.

Prediction for next week: Modest Mouse is back with a new song, Twenty Pilots moves up, and maybe we get Bakar back?

Here’s the AltCharts countdown on Spotify.

Everything to know about ‘Colorado’ by Milky Chance

Milky Chance released “Shy Away” on June 17, 2021. It debuted at No. 18 on SiriusXM’s Alt18 Countdown on July 3, 2021 and reached No. 2 on August 28, 2021. Berlin-based Muggelig Records GmbH, the band’s new imprint, released the song.

Clemens Rehbein told American Songwriter “Colorado” is about getting together with friends to cope with a hard time, if only for one night. “It’s very honest but also not taking itself too seriously at the same time,” Rehbein said.

Rehbein and collaborator Phillip Dausch wrote the song in about two hours during a break as they worked on something completely different. NME notes the overt drug references in the song: “I get high in Colorado.”

Credits

Songwriter: Clemens Rehbein, Joacim Bo Persson, Philipp Maximilian Dausch, Sebastian Arman

Producer: Milky Chance, Decco

Record label: Muggelig Records GmbH

Lyrics

I get high like Colorado
We had it all but what do I know?
I try to push away the sorrow
But today, it’s too late, I try tomorrow
(Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah)

I think that you were kind of mean (kind of mean, kind of mean)
You just replaced me in the scene (in the scene, in the scene)
I thought that we were evergreen (evergreen, evergreen)
Like a never-ending dream

Never been on the TV
Scratched me off of your CV
Out of your mind
Out of your mind
Never been so uneasy
Jealousy got me freaky
Out of my mind

So I get high like Colorado
We had it all but what do I know?
I try to push away the sorrow
But today, it’s too late, I try tomorrow
(Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah)I’m losing sleep all by myself
I’m wide awake and I just wonder how
You put my heart back on the shelf (back on the shelf)
Well, I’ma be a loner now

Never been on the TV
Scratched me off of your CV
Out of your mind
Out of your mind
Never been so uneasy
Jealousy got me freaky
Out of my mind

So I get high like Colorado
We had it all but what do I know?
I try to push away the sorrow
But today, it’s too late, I try tomorrow
(Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah)Drownin’ in my sofa with my blood shot red eyes (ooh)
Ridin’ rollercoaster ’til I see the sunrise

I get high like Colorado (I get high, I get high)
We had it all but what do I know?
I try to push away the sorrow (I get high, I get high)
But today, it’s too late, I try tomorrow
(Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah)I get high like Colorado
Colorado (yeah), Colorado (yeah), Colorado
I get high like Colorado
Colorado (yeah), Colorado (yeah), Colorado

Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 8/28/21: Milky Chance jumps to No. 2; The Killers, Dayglow join

Ian Johnson, Arrested Youth

Twenty One Pilots was coming and going on the new Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM.

The duo’s “Saturday” fell off the Alt18 but their “The Outside” took its place, debuting at No. 8. This is the third song off their new album “Scaled and Icy” to make the countdown. “Shy Away” had a run earlier this year.

It’s also good days if you’re a Killers fan. The band dropped a second album, “Pressure Machine,” in less than a year and “Sleepwalker” joined the Alt18 this week. Brandon Flowers and co. lived on the countdown last year and appear ready to take up residency for the rest of 2021.

Dayglow brings the third new new song this week with “Medicine.” Another great song off “Harmony House,” Sloan Struble continues to build on his 2020 success of “Can I See You Tonight.” He had “Close to You” on the countdown earlier this year.

Returning this week are SEB’s “seaside_demo,” along with “Wrecked” by Imagine Dragons and “Stop Making this Hurt” by Bleachers. Of the three, SEB was least likely to jump back in, but also the nicest surprise.

Those six songs knocked off a mix of old and new. We mentioned “Saturday,” and “Welcomes the Pressure” by Sir Sly continues to yo-yo on and off the Alt18. The biggest surprise is Holly Humberstone’s “The Walls are Way to Thin,” which was flirting with No. 1 a couple of weeks ago. Lorde’s run with “Solar Power” may be over, Cannons and “Bad Dream” had been hanging around, and you could easily see Cold War Kids back next week with “What You Say.”

Bastille is back at No. 1 with “Distorted Light Beam,” while Milky Chance jumped to No. 2 with “Colorado.” I like Måneskin’s chances at No. 4, and Saint Motel reached No. 3 with “It’s All Happening.” Arrested Youth’s “Find My Way,” featuring Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, is at No. 11. In some industry synergy, they’re touring with Twenty One Pilots this year.

I’m starting a new thing on the Discord channel where members can vote for their favorite song of the week. This week’s “People’s Champ” is the earworm “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE.” Vote this week over in the Finding Alt18 Discord (and check out some incredibly cool data on the history of pop music).

Here’s the AltCharts countdown on Spotify.

Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 8/21/21: Manchester Orchestra joins with ‘Telepath’

Cold War Kids

Bastille is back at No. 1 this week on the Alt18 Countdown with the haunting “Distorted Light Beam.” Can you make sense of these opening lyrics?

It isn’t enough to start a riot
Distort the light beam until I like me
It isn’t enough, if this is real life
I’ll stick to dreaming, come see what I see

Catchy chorus, though.

UPDATE: Here’s a good analysis of the lyrics. Thanks, SlaX from Discord.

Måneskin continues their rise up the countdown with “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE” reaching No. 5. Twenty One Pilots, Modest Mouse and Glass Animals continue shuffling among the Top 5, while Sir Sly continues to bounce up and down the Alt18 with “Welcome the Pressure.”

Manchester Orchestra appears ready for another long stay on the countdown with the excellent “Telepath” joining at No. 15.

Vance Joy is back with “Missing Piece,” Billie Eilish with “NDA,” Walk the Moon with “Can You Handle My Love??” and Saint Motel with “It’s All Happening.” Justus Bennetts, The Band CAMINO, Foo Fighters, Bleachers and Atlas Genius all drop off this week.

Here’s the AltCharts countdown on Spotify.

Atlas Genius

We have a new No. 1. Bastille takes the top spot from CHVRCHES with the dreamy banger “Distorted Light Beam.” Glass Animals has moved into the No. 2 spot and may never leave with “Space Ghost Coast to Coast,” while Holly Humberstone reaches No. 3 with “The Walls Are WAy to Thin.”

New this week are songs from Justus Bennetts, Foo Fighters, and Arrested Youth. Falling off are Genesis Owusu, Imagine Dragons, Japanese Breakfast, Saint Motel and WILLOW with Travis Barker.

For anyone following the blog, I fell behind this week and got this up just before the new countdown comes out. Apologies! Summers get busy.

Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 8/7/21: CHVRCHES back at No. 1; Sir Sly rejoins; Måneskin up 2

Måneskin

Måneskin is all style and Sir Sly is back in style.

The Italian rockers bumped up two spots on the Alt18 Countdown with “I Wanna Be Your Slave,” one of at least three songs by the EuroVision winners hanging around charts around the world. Here’s a version of “Slave” with Iggy Pop.

Sir Sly gave me a double-take with their return at No. 6 with “Welcomes the Pressure.” I thought their run was over, and now they’re in the mix for No. 1.

Genesis Owusu and Cold War Kids all have new songs to the Alt18, while SEB, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Walk the Moon, Cannons, and Vance Joy all dropped off. You could almost make a second Alt18 with that group.

At the top, CHVRCHES repeats at No. 1 with “He Said, She Said” and Glass Animals is back at No. 2. Lorde, Holly Humberstone and WILLOW with Travis Barker seem to have No. 1 potential this month.

Note: I had the date wrong on last week’s countdown. Apologies! And, if anyone has the July 17 Countdown, I could use it so we have a complete 2021.

Note 2: “Wrecked” by Imagine Dragons actually appeared on the July 17 countdown. Thanks to SlaX for the note on our Discord channel.

Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 7/31/21: CHVRCHES at No. 1; Holly Humberstone joins Top 5

SEB

Take me to CHVRCHES.

The Scottish trio is the new No. 1 on the Alt 18 Countdown with “He Said, She Said.” (You’re forgiven for thinking it would be “How Not to Drown” given its heavy rotation on AltNation.) It’s an exciting shake up for the countdown after weeks of Glass Animals and Twenty One Pilots, who are both still in the Top 5.

Halfway through the year I’m thinking about what songs will make the Top 36 for 2021. “Space Ghost Coast to Coast” seems likely, while something from 21P will make it. I don’t think Måneskin will appear, but it’s fun to have the EuroVision winners on the Alt18 with their odd banger.

SEB sticks around another week, while Billie Eilish tries to find some traction with “NDA.” Surprised to see Japanese Breakfast fall off, but even more surprised to see The Band CAMINO disappear from No. 4 last week. Cannons seems to have crowded one of them out by returning with “Bad Dreams.”

Vance Joy is also back with “Missing Piece” at No. 8, and the Milky Chance earworm “Colorado” seems to be sticking around for a minute. I’d like to make a 50 states alt-indie-pop playlist sometime. We have Alaska covered, and Sufjan picked up a couple for us. We can count Bruce as an Alt18 artist, so there’s Nebraska. The Maine are right there. I’m worried about South Carolina.

We also lost Willow and Blu DeTiger this week. Either could be back next week.

Links below. Working on updating the playlists. It’s hard in the summer. We need the crushing winter to get things back on schedule. Cheers!

Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 7/24/21: Twenty One Pilots holds at No. 1; Olivia Rodrigo jumps

Milky Chance

Another week at No. 1 for Twenty One Pilots and their disco jam “Saturday” on the Alt18 Countdown. Glass Animals holds at No. 2 with “Space Ghost Coast to Coast.”

I missed the last two weeks traveling, so not sure who is new or who jumped around the countdown, but Olivia Rodrigo is up to No. 5 with “brutal,” while WILLOW and Travis Barker have a bop with the SEO-unfriendly “t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l.” SEB also has something going with “seaside_demo,” which has 38.6 million plays on Spotify, to date. He can’t thank TikTok and Harry Styles for the boost.

I didn’t catch the name of the new SEB track at No. 17. If you know it, email me here.

Keeping things short this week with the new countdown less than 24 hours away. I’ll swing back and report on the 7/17/21 countdown so we have a full record for the year.

Playlist links below. I’m back and active on the Discord here.

Sorry again for being away. I meant to keep things updated, but it was just too nice out in the woods. Back at it now.

Update: I have a new Spotify playlist called “AltCharts” featuring alternative music from popular charts. You can follow it here.
