It's rare for me to post country songs in this thread because I don't listen to them regularly, but I'm actually posting two country songs in a row this week. This time it's a song from 2004, which was at #54 on the Hot 100 this week and peaked at #51 two weeks later, as well as peaking at #5 on the Country chart a week after that. Here's "Hot Mama" by Trace Adkins.

Today's pick from 2020 was both a #1 hit on Billboard's Dance Club Songs and Dance/Mix Show Airplay charts. Down to #46 this week on the Club chart, it samples both "Don't Go" by Yaz and "Dr. Love" by First Choice. Here's Riton X Oliver Heldens featuring Vula with "Turn Me On".
Today's pick was a 2006 rock hit which peaked at #4 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart, becoming their highest-charting song out of the five which made the chart. This week, it was at #66 on the Hot 100 after peaking at #50 two weeks earlier. Here's Yellowcard with "Lights and Sounds".
Today's pick was released as a single on this date in 2011. Apparently it did not hit any charts in Billboard, but according to Wikipedia it charted in a handful of countries in Europe. Here's Aloe Blacc with "Loving You Is Killing Me". Also including the album version as it's different than the music video version.
Today's pick was a hit on Billboard's Modern Rock chart in early 2001, where it was at #22 this week on its way to a #18 peak three weeks later. It would not reach the Mainstream Rock chart (where it peaked at #38) until early 2002, following the success of their cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal". Here's Alien Ant Farm with "Movies".
Today's pick spotlights a song whose EP of the same name was released this week in 2015, according to Wikipedia, and whose singer was the frontwoman for an indie rock band from Chicago named Company of Thieves. Here's Genevieve with "Show Your Colors" (both the official video and the PLS & TY Remix are posted).

From last year, a song that peaked at #15 on Billboard's Alternative chart and was now down to #35 this week. The song also peaked at #17 on the Mainstream Rock chart. Although it sounds like the Talking Heads, it's actually Pearl Jam with "Dance of the Clairvoyants".
