The TC 10

The TC 10 was my personal weekly music countdown from 2003 to 2006. It was also the main source of data for my year-end music reviews during those four years. Inside, all 200 weekly countdowns in their entirety, a list of all the vintage clips I selected, and a comprehensive table of statistics.

Countdowns

This is it. Today, The TC 10 comes to an end.

The countdown began all the way back on Sunday, March 9, 2003, as a random idea that I never thought would last 200 weeks. The next week, the countdown would find its home on Fridays for almost four years. Now, here we are, returning to Sunday one last time for the final edition of The TC 10.

Before sending off the countdown, let’s take a look back at how we got here, with the very first edition of The TC 10.

Quote:
So I was thinking about starting up my own countdown in this very Your Top Ten forum. The working title is the TC 10, and if I actually remember it exists (which I highly doubt), I’ll continue it weekly. Okay here we go.

Sunday, March 9, 2003

10. Audioslave – Like A Stone
1 week | debut | peak: 10

9. Sum 41 – The Hell Song
1 week | debut | peak: 9

8. Hot Hot Heat – Bandages
1 week | debut | peak: 8

7. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Can’t Stop
1 week | debut | peak: 7

6. Coldplay – Clocks
1 week | debut | peak: 6

5. Queens Of The Stone Age – Go With The Flow
1 week | debut | peak: 5

4. Sahara Hotnights – Alright, Alright
1 week | debut | peak: 4

3. The Music – Take The Long Road And Walk It
1 week | debut | peak: 3

2. Evanescence – Bring Me To Life
1 week | debut | peak: 2

1. Transplants – Diamonds and Guns
1 week | debut | peak: 1

Exciting eh? Now you know what music I like to listen to at the moment. I’m not sure if I want to do requests or not, because this is my countdown and everything.

The following week, I started adding more features to the countdown, such as close calls (which later became known as extra beats), premieres, and of course, vintage clips. Every single week, The TC 10 was sent off with a classic song…

Week #2

This week’s recommended classic:
Weezer – Say It Ain’t So

As you can see, the first vintage clip was "Say It Ain’t So" by Weezer. Over the years, a wide variety of songs would follow, creating an epic playlist of classic songs that ends today with another special selection, which you’ll see below.

By the tenth week of the countdown, a new concept of retirement had emerged. Instead of letting songs stay on the countdown forever, I ended their run at ten weeks, a fitting number, given that the countdown is The TC 10…

Friday, May 9, 2003
Week #10

4. Queens Of The Stone Age – Go With The Flow | RETIRED
10 weeks | same | peak: 1 (3 weeks)

3. Sum 41 – The Hell Song | RETIRED
10 weeks | up 3 | peak: 1 (1 week)

Later on, two songs would go on to spend all ten weeks at #1 on the countdown: "Just Because" by Jane’s Addiction, and "Ch-Check It Out" by Beastie Boys. All of my year-end countdowns have been calculated using statistics from The TC 10, so these songs easily took the #1 spot in 2003 and 2004, respectively. In 2005, "O’ Sailor" by Fiona Apple and "Best Of You" by Foo Fighters actually ended up in a tie for #1, as they had the exact same run on The TC 10. In 2006, the tie was broken, as "Dani California" by Red Hot Chili Peppers was the clear winner.

Possibly the most memorable moments in The TC 10 history came from you guys. The best part of doing the countdown was receiving suggestions, requests, and other random comments from whoever decided to drop in. Over the years, Ben and Ryan would prove to be the most loyal supporters of The TC 10, requesting over 150 times out of 200. That’s damn impressive.

With all that said, it’s time to say goodbye. For the last edition of The TC 10, I assembled a list of songs from this year that I thought would be a fitting send-off. As I noted earlier, The TC 10 has returned to its original day of the week on this Sunday, December 31, 2006, so we’re "Setting Up Sunday" one last time…

December 31, 2006
Week #200

10. Meg & Dia – Setting Up Sunday
1 week | debut | peak: 10

9. My Chemical Romance – Welcome To The Black Parade
1 week | debut | peak: 9

8. KT Tunstall – Suddenly I See
8 weeks | return | peak: 4

7. Muse – Starlight
1 week | debut | peak: 7

6. The Decemberists – Sons And Daughters
1 week | debut | peak: 6

5. Death Cab For Cutie – I Will Follow You Into The Dark
5 weeks | return | peak: 5

4. U2 – Window In The Skies
1 week | debut | peak: 4

3. The Killers – When You Were Young
1 week | debut | peak: 3

2. Beck – Think I’m In Love
2 weeks | return | peak: 2

1. Chris Cornell – You Know My Name
10 weeks | same | peak: 1 (3 weeks)

Vintage clip:
Weezer – Only In Dreams

There it is: a variety of songs from this year helped send off The TC 10. Final statistics from The TC 10 will be available for a limited time on The TC 10 archives page. On the very first edition of The TC 10, "Like A Stone" by Audioslave was the first debut. Today, the epic "You Know My Name" by Chris Cornell is the final song to retire. The first vintage clip way back then was "Say It Ain’t So" by Weezer. Today, "Only In Dreams" closes out The TC 10 once and for all.

Only in dreams, we see what it means
Reach out our hands, hold onto hers
But when we wake, it’s all been erased
And so it seems, only in dreams

To everyone, thanks for your support. It’s been fun. Adieu from The TC 10!


 
This week on The TC 10, the ridiculous songs from last week make their way on the top ten, because nothing matters anymore! Most of this stuff is actually from your requests, for once. Join me next week for the big finale.

Thank you all for your support over the years, and I’ll see you next week!

You read that correctly up there. The TC 10 is going away! After almost 200 weeks, honestly, I’ve had it with this countdown. For almost a year, it’s felt more like a chore than anything else. I only kept it up because it had been going for so long.

The last edition of The TC 10 will be at the very end of the year, and it’ll also be week #200 of the countdown. I figured this would be a perfect way to send it off. Thanks to everyone who has requested since the premiere on March 9, 2003.

I promise you, these last 4 weeks are gonna be fun times! Help me send off The TC 10 in style by requesting some totally ridiculous songs, new or old, that I should "premiere" in the final weeks of the countdown.

The world of music will never be the same again. As the TC 10 reported in January, independent radio station 97X (WOXY.com) was scheduled to go off the air last night and it did, right on schedule. The dead air that followed the goodbye from 97X represents the state of all radio without 97X: dead. What made 97X so great is that it was truly the last of the totally live, local, independent radio stations, with real music, real people, and a real passion for the music they played. Something as special as the radio station 97X, and the community of all the wonderful people who worked there and the extremely loyal listeners who tuned in every day, realizing that 97X was indeed much more than just a radio station, will probably never be seen (or heard) again. Goodbye, 97X, the future of rock and roll.

The TC 10 will attempt to take some cues from the unmatched 97X, following less trends, patterns, and charts, starting in the next few weeks. Here is this week’s TC 10.

When I started the TC 10 in March 2003, I gave it the slogan "the future of rock and roll," stealing the tagline from an independent radio station in Oxford, Ohio, called 97X, broadcasting at 97.7 FM since 1983. Because the station was independently owned and operated on an already full range of FM frequencies, 97X had a small listening audience. However, as soon as I discovered the station, there was no going back to corporate-controlled radio. I remember the first time I found 97X on the dial. I thought to myself, is this even radio? This was music I hadn’t heard at all before, but it was incredibly awesome. It totally blew away the same 10 songs that would repeat over and over again on any of the other radio stations in the area.

97X started broadcasting on the Internet in 1998 at www.woxy.com. Since then, the incredibly short listening range of the station was expanded to the entire world. Anyone with a computer could now log on and listen to this one-of-a-kind outlet of new music. Although it became awesome for these Internet listeners around the world, nothing could match the awesomeness and convenience of having 97X on the radio dial at all times. I’ve listened to 97X every day. It starts my morning while I’m in the car and keeps me sane all day. No other radio station can come close to doing that.

Sure, there are countless other radio stations on the dial, but 97X is in a totally different world. On 97X, there’s no endless repetition of songs. There aren’t 100 commercials per hour. The DJs are actually intelligent people and they don’t ramble on for hours about things that no one cares about. And did I mention the music? It’s a never-ending showcase of new alternative music that no other station can match. Alternative and truly independent was the promise that 97X held true for 21 years.

All good things must come to an end, they say. Now the end has come for 97X. This week, the owners of WOXY announced they will be shutting down in 90 days because they can no longer afford to run the station. Competition with large corporations like ClearChannel has become too tough, so they must sell the station to avoid bankruptcy. This means the last remaining alternative and truly independent radio station anywhere will be lost to yet another large corporation. That’s right, every radio station on the entire range of FM frequencies, no matter where you are, will be owned by a large corporation. It’s truly a sad day for radio.

Listening to 97X was a way to take a stand against these corporations telling you what you can and can’t listen to. Real people made real requests for real songs that were played by real DJs in a real studio on a real radio station. Imagine that. Now, the corporations have won.

The owners of 97X promise that the station will still broadcast on the Internet at www.woxy.com. However, the station’s biggest fans (myself included) wonder how long this can truly last. Even if 97X does continue to broadcast on the Internet, it simply won’t be the same as tuning the radio to 97.7 FM and being able to listen anywhere — provided you’re within 30 miles of Oxford, Ohio, that is. I’m sure all this is hard to understand for people who never had the opportunity to listen to 97X on their radio. It’s something I’ve taken for granted for a long time, and the way I listen to new music simply won’t be the same without 97X on the air.

As far as I’m concerned, when 97.7 FM goes off the air, FM radio dies. So I send you off with this message: don’t listen to the same shit that corporate radio wants to shove down your throat every 45 minutes. Continue to discover new music and listen to what you want to, not what a corporation tells you to. This week’s TC 10 goes out to 97X: an indirect thanks to the station for introducing me to so much new music over the years and always being there on the radio dial. 97X. BAM! The future of rock and roll.

Time for another real TC 10! Last week, I was reminded of how I completely forgot about the Foo Fighters’ "Low" on my countdown. I’m not sure how I just passed by "Low" without a second thought, but I’ve decided to make up for it by grouping them with Kelly Clarkson’s song of the same title. Why am I doing this now?

Other highlights from this week’s countdown… Hot Hot Heat run out of steam, Liam Lynch’s 15 minutes are winding down, Electric Six hold steady, The White Stripes can’t hold on to #1, and AFI move into the top spot once again! Look out for Foo Fighters to retire next week.

Statistics for the first 10 weeks may or may not be coming soon. Stay tuned, and keep requesting!


 
It is time once again for the TC 10. This week, there are a whole bunch of new wannabes, The Donnas can’t hang on to the countdown, and with the debut of Fighter, 2 songs on my "future of rock and roll" top 10 are not rock and roll at all, but pop. I guess that’s what happens when 120 Minutes is cancelled!

Next week is the big week 10! Keep requesting, see you next time.


 
After much changes last week, the countdown calms down this time. Still, Supergrass cannot hang on, so that clears the way for Electric Six to finally debut after all this time. Matchbox Twenty and Interpol are new this week to the wannabes, and Audioslave hangs on yet again to the wannabe spot. Here is the countdown:

Also I have an open question: what do you suggest for retirement? Should a song be retired after 10 weeks, more weeks, or never? I can’t decide, haha.


 
THIS WEEK, lots of changes on the countdown: 4 falloffs, 2 returns, 2 debuts, and 2 new wannabes. Unfortunately, The Music couldn’t hold on this week and they finally go flying off into the distance, taking Tegan and Sara, Evanescence, and Audioslave with them… but that allows the Hot ones and Avril to return. Transplants and Tegan wannabe on the countdown, and Supergrass jumps on at #7. That’s what’s going on at the lower half of the chart, now here it is…

Seven Nation Army is on the countdown and here to stay for a while. Meanwhile, the Queens give up 3 weeks at #1 and fall to 2nd place, and AFI takes #1 for the first time.


 
The countdown switches back to Saturday for this week… I’ll figure out a pattern eventually. Anyway…

THIS WEEK, System and Avril can’t hang on, Tegan and Sara are slippin’, Hot Hot Heat continues trippin’ from sippin’ the drippin’ dirty wannabe tap, and Audioslave jumps right back on to the countdown. We also say hello to The Flaming Lips, and The Donnas make the countdown.

THIS WEEK ON THE TC 10… No Doubt, Transplants, and The Ataris struggle to stay on the countdown, The Donnas stay on as wannabes once again as Hot Hot Heat and their bandages seek revenge, we see two new debuts near the end of the countdown… and then Liam Lynch comes out of nowhere to debut high up on the countdown, but I have a feeling that will be short-lived. It’s one of those novelty songs that, unfortunately, might quickly lose its charm.

I really need more than 10 spots, this is getting too difficult. But yes, Queens Of The Stone Age have re-claimed the top spot, partially because of their awesome (if I do say so myself) video. Also watch out for Tegan And Sara as well as AFI, they’re moving up fast. REQUEST REQUEST REQUEST see you next week.


 
It’s time for another TC 10! This week, No Doubt makes a quick appearance on the countdown (will they stay? we’ll find out later) and almost-unknowns Tegan and Sara debut. If you don’t know who they are, start watching 120 Minutes. The Donnas stay as a wannabe for the 2nd week and we say goodbye to American Hi-Fi and Coldplay for now to make room for the debuts.
