Top 30 “Safe Songs” for Schools – 1st of 2011

January 7, 2011 by Ric Hansen

Welcome to a new exciting year of music.  The music and radio industries takes a bit of a hiatus for two weeks at the end of the year (plus schools are out)  so we have not published a Top 30 safe songs list since December.  As you get set for a new year you’ll note that there were some bigger than usual moves as the chart adjusts for the time off.  Notably  the new Black Eyed Peas jumps from 23 to 13 to 6.   Chris Brown Deuces goes from 25 to 16 to 9.  Enrique Iglesias debuts at 28 and jumps to 18.

For the 4th year in a row, DJ Earworm has released his super-mega “year in review” mashup for 2010:   The United States of Pop this year titled “Don’t stop the Pop” feature Billboards top 25 song of the year.  Play this one at Schools quick, because it’s novelty value will wear off quick.
