‘Fallin’ So In Love With You’ is No. 1 on Beach Music CafĂ©‘s Top 50

 

Thomas Moore’s beach tune “Fallin’ So In Love With You” topped the March 2017 charts at Beach Music Café Internet Radio, according to Spirit Records’ Bill Bradford. Dr. Moore led the charts once earlier, in August 2016.

Buy the song on Amazon HERE, the Queen City Soul album as an MP3 or CD HERE. Or download the song or the Queen City Soul album through your iTunes account.

Below are the Top 50 for August 2016 from WillieCs RnB Beach Music Café.


Dr. Moore wrote his Facebook friends: “This is a listener's best list. Bill is the writer, arranger, producer, drummer, one of the back-up singers, saxophonist and everything else on this song. Wow!!! Check out WillieCs RnB Beach Music Café. Congratulations to Bill Bradford and Sandy Bell, owners of Spirit Records. They have seven of their artists on the list.”

Bill Bradford writes:

“Back in the early ‘80s when I was getting my small record label, Spirit Records, started he recorded this song and we released it regionally as a single.  It got some play in the ‘Beach Music’ market and then lay dormant for years until I did a ‘remix’ on it and sent it out to some Carolinas beach music DJs last year. 

“Some played it again, but it caught with this particular Internet radio DJ and his listeners.  He keeps a chart on his current Top 50, and it has been slowly rising for several months and is now #1 with his listeners on his show, Willie C's R&B Beach Music Cafe.  

“‘Beach Music’ is essentially a sub-genre of Soul/R&B – danceable R&B music first played along the Carolinas coast – which continues today. While admittedly a small market, nonetheless it is a feat to have a song that goes #1 on any chart today!  And, it shows that, in the music business, "you never know.”  Compliments and congratulations to Thomas!”
