2015 March Hot AC Issue


Aussie sisters, The Veronicas adorn the March 2015 cover with their touching ballad “You Ruin Me” from their third album The Veronicas. Ballads can be tough to program, but this one’s well worth it with outstanding lyrics and vocals. These ladies have have been at it for awhile and deserve a shot! Perennial touring band O.A.R. is back with a follow-up to last year’s Top 25 Hot AC hit “Peace”. “Two Hands Up” is an anthemic surrender to a lover with all the production to go with it. This should be a big tune on O.A.R.’s Summer tour. Parachute is back on a new label (Vanguard) with an uptempo R&B-flavored groove called “Crave” that churns along relentlessly with the irresistible  hook, “I crave you’re lovin’ on me”.  Songwriter/vocalist for the bands Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin, Andrew McMahon steps out with another solo effort and yet another band name! “Cecilia and the Satellite” is a multi-textured big production song from a singer/songwriter who’s time has come.  Speaking of artists who’s time has come, one of the hardest working singer/songwriters in show biz, Mikey Wax, is back with “Only One”, a poppy, hook-laden confection that just could be the “one” for him. By popular demand “No Way No”, Magic!‘s latest single appears again here at track #6. The timing with Spring here is good for this album favorite. Remember the cute duo Oh Honey with the song “Be Okay”? They’re back with another catchy tune called “Sugar, You” and it’s already getting some airplay! So is “Brother” the powerful, gospel flavored song from NEEDTOBREATHE featuring Gavin DeGraw. This one went to #2 at Christian radio and should be their best secular single ever. Katy Tiz the beautiful British singer who last had a Top 30 Billboard song, “The Big Bang” is back at it again with “Whistle (While You Work It)”. This tune is already a favorite among Hot AC programmers. Finally, on a more serious note is “Dollhouse” by Melanie Martinez, The Voice third season contestant. Martinez has a voice to be reckoned with and delivers this to-the-point commentary on domestic disfunction perfectly.
