How clever! The remix version is still Matt singing right. wonder if you can buy it on itunes? Wonder why Matt didn't mention it?

Jenna,

Yes, the remix version is the same song, but the arrangement has a bells track added to make it sound Christmas-y, and the lyrics are slightly different:

"I don't want to let a Christmas Day, pass us by ..."

and something like:

"Love, love, that's what Christmas is about"

Sorry, can't remember the last one.

I tried to find it on ITunes but couldn't.

I didn't say this in my earlier post, but "Thank You" is doing amazingly well in terms of growth of spins. It has the third highest growth in spins this week (52) in the Top 40, only below #1 and #4, both holiday songs. I hope I don't regret saying this, but it is looking pretty likely it will hit Top 20 this week!

I wonder when he recorded the new version? Maybe they always planned on doing this so they recorded it at the same time as the original one? Hmmm maybe he will sing christmas version during his christmas show. Too bad you can't buy it on itunes. Have you heard it csprof?

I just heard the song yesterday morning during the radio interview in Kalamazoo. Maybe there is a way to find it like we found the original song before it was released?

From what Matt said in the interview, it sounds like they recorded it more recently than the original recording. They might have wanted to see if the original song was going to make it on radio. However, I think this was in the back of their mind all along because I discovered yesterday that last year's Brickman hit had a Christmas version, and maybe that's how it made it to #4. I'm going to do more investigation of that to see where it was on the chart in early November.

It is a brilliant strategy because:
- many AC stations convert 100% to holiday music this time of year, so many loyal stations dropped it and the other non-holiday songs on the chart. Some are picking "Thank You" back up again.
- it has already been tested by radio audiences so PDs are willing to play it.
- it takes far fewer spins this time of year to get to the top of the chart.
- Jim is visiting radio stations right now while on tour, and radio stations that sponsor his concert might be inclined to play it to help sell tickets.

I don't know if Matt's upcoming concert is a factor, but Lansing is playing the new version of "Thank You" more than it ever did before (4 times yesterday), and I bet it will get a few spins from Tommy and Brook this week. So, probably Matt's concert promotional blitz is helping it too.

I haven't tested this out, but it looks like you can download the Christmas version of "Thank You" from Jim Brickman's website.

Wake up, everybody! Matt has a Top 20 song!!!!!! Who's out there???

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

"Thank You" is at #20, up six spins from yesterday. It has the same spin count as #21, and is 28 spins below #19. It is 60 spins ahead of where it was a week ago, when it was #37!


To count, the song needs to be Top 20 on Sunday's official chart. I think it will hold, and there are two songs ahead of it that will be eligible to go recurrent so it might end up higher. The song started its big rise last Friday, though, so it will need to match Friday, Saturday and Sunday spin counts.

Jenna,

Thanks for posting. I needed someone to share in my happy dance. Smile

It will be interesting to see what happens next. I think it will get an official Top 20 this week, and even that would be a huge milestone. I actually think Top 15 could happen, but I'm not sure about Top 10. But since he was at #37 a week ago, it is pretty hard to predict what's coming.

It is fun that Matt can brag about having a Top 20 song at his concert on Saturday! I hope the song can hang on until then.

That's great and exciting since he can share that to everyone at his holiday concert. The link to Jim's site above does work and it's a free download of the xmas version of Thank You.. I am so happy for Matt.

"Thank You" is up four more spins, and looking more solid at #20. It is now twelve spins ahead of #21 (as opposed to zero spins yesterday), and 24 spins below #19. Since it was last Friday's chart that was the beginning of "Thank You"'s climb, I was concerned that it would not see growth in spins today. So, now that the song has passed that test, I am pretty confident it can stay at #20 for two more days. I am excited to see Sunday's chart!


Thank you, Jenna, Holley, cranberry, mattyfan and Anthony for your posts on this thread yesterday. I was so excited to be at #20 and wanted to share it with people!

"Thank You" is up six more spins and still at #20. Unfortunately, there is a holiday song by Wilson Phillips at #21 that has taken a huge jump since yesterday and is just five spins behind. So, there is a good chance "Thank You" will drop to #21 tomorrow morning. Ugh! It could be a nail biter tomorrow because Katy Perry "California Gurls" at #19 is eligible to go recurrent tomorrow, and if it does, "Thank You" will be back at #20.

The good news is that Matt has bragging rights tonight at his concert that he has a Top 20 song. For those of you seeing him tonight, have a wonderful time!

IT'S OFFICIAL! TOP 20!!!!

Unbelievably good news! "Thank You" is up 13 spins and is going to be officially a Top 20 song today! It is #20 now, but Katy Perry is eligible to go recurrent and so it could end the day at #19. I am not confident about this because the recurrent rules have been applied inconsistently during the holiday freeze. I'll post an update this afternoon if the song moves up.

Here are some more details. It is now a full 22 spins ahead of #21, the song that was just five spins behind yesterday, and it is just six spins behind #19. Also, "Thank You" is up 58 spins for the week and is one spin shy of DOUBLING its spin count from 10 days ago. It picked up three new stations yesterday. I'm expecting some adds tomorrow.

And here's something to look forward to. #15 is just FOURTEEN spins above. Let's keep "Thank You" moving up!!!

"Thank You" is still at #20 but dropped two spins (no songs went recurrent yesterday). It is just four spins below #19, but #21 is now nine spins below, and #22 is moving up quickly too. It is sixteen spins below #15.

Looking at the 30 stations that have added the song, 19 of them played it this week. It is fun to see that three that had dropped it by the previous week picked it back up again. There are six other stations that played the song 19 times this week, so I think we'll see some adds. I know Cincinnati is playing the song daily now, and I am betting it will be an add.

Here are the stations that are playing the song 7 times are more -- these might be good candidates for requests.

Lansing (30 spins!), Columbia (15 spins), Burlington (15 spins), Hartford (12 spins), Denver (10 spins), Newburgh (10 spins), Memphis (10 spins), Flint (7 spins), Providence (7 spins)

And here are the three stations that picked the song back up this week. They could probably use some encouragement to keep playing the song.

Monterey-Salinas (2 spins, and hadn't played the song in 2 weeks)
Lafayette (just 1 spin, but hadn't played the song in 2 weeks)
Shreveport (just 1 spin, but used to play the song a lot up until a few weeks ago)

I'll post an update after adds are in, but it may not be until tomorrow morning.

[Note to Holley:] I'm so glad you are enjoying this thread. It is my pleasure to track this chart when things are going well like they are now. (It is less fun when the song is dropping.) I am so happy for Matt that he gets to claim he has a Top 20 song after hovering so close for months! You're right -- we need to request to get it to Top 15 this week. After the holidays are over, things will change rapidly and he may very well drop and go recurrent. So now is the time to request!

"Thank You" is up two spins and at #19! And it is ELEVEN spins away from #15. #18 is one spin away and #17 is just three spins away. Another exciting week to see if it can make Top 15!

Yesterday Portland, OR added the song, and had spun it 7 times last week. I expected an add in Cincinnati because I saw that it played the song 4 days, but it must have been one spin shy of an auto-add. There were 8 other spins of "Thank You" on four stations that are unaccounted for.

In other chart news, "Thank You" is going to be #19 on this week's reported Billboard chart, which means it hit Top 20 on both major charts! It hit #50 on Brian Mansfield's USA Today Idol Airplay Chart with a reported 316 spins. I am really curious what Mediabase stations in other formats played the song 149 times. This number of non-AC spins appears to be growing every week.

"Thank You" remains at #19 with the same spin count as yesterday. However, it passed Katy Perry's "California Gurls", but was also passed by a Dave Barnes holiday song that was #20 yesterday. It has the same spin count as #18, is three spins behind #17, and now fourteen spins behind #15.

"Thank You" has dropped eight spins and is now at #21. Sad It was passed again by Katy Perry, "California Gurls" and by Wilson Phillips "Little Drummer Boy". It is seven spins below #20, four spins above #22, and now 22 spins away from #15.
