School Dance Safe Top 30 (9/2/10)

September 2, 2010 by Ric Hansen

So.  Green light this week goes to Justin Bieber.  I’ve been holding off debuting his new single, because there is a very definite ” Teen Idol” negative spin, particularly among teen males.   But the air play it is getting both on Mainstream Top 40 stations and on the edgier Rhythmic stations is undisputable.  Not to mention the I-Tunes sell through. .  It is a hit.  The “Biebs” somehow has magically transcended beyond just the 13 year old girl phenomenon.

On the DO NOT PLAY side…..It doesn’t get any more blatant than a song title:  “F**K You”.  I heard an edit on Sirius that removed the F bomb…but no matter how you slice it, it’s not a good fit with school dance events.  Trust me, the student know and will sing the original lyrics as loud as they can in the school gym.   It has been selling “Top 10” on I tunes for a few weeks.  Sad too.  The song has a good hook and is very melodic a hit in every other way.

You will notice  I have added two new features to the list this week.  Beats per Minute, and a easy reference number to the acceptable edited version of the song on “Prime Cuts” from TM.
