The new Netflix series scores three entries on the January 2019 chart, more than any other show.
In 1971, Al Green’s “Tired of Being Alone” became the singer’s third entry on the Billboard Hot 100 and his first in the top 40. Nearly five decades later, the song is back on a chart, leading The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Songs chart, powered by Tunefind, for January 2019 thanks to its appearance in an episode of Sex Education.
Rankings for the Top TV Songs chart are based on song and show data provided by Tunefind and ranked using a formula blending that data with sales and streaming information tracked by Nielsen Music during the corresponding period.
Green’s track, which peaked at No. 11 on the Hot 100 dated Nov. 6, 1971, appears in the seventh episode of Netflix’s Sex Education, which premiered Jan. 11.
