Netflix's 'Umbrella Academy' Unleashes Seven Tracks on Top TV Songs Chart, Led by 'I Think We're Alone Now'
Plus, a "Russian Doll" synch sends Harry Nilsson onto the list.
Three decades after Tiffany's breakthrough single "I Think We're Alone Now" spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (in November 1987), it tops yet another tally: The Hollywood Reporter's Top TV Songs chart, powered by Tunefind, for February 2019, thanks to its synch in Netflix's The Umbrella Academy.
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.
"I Think We're Alone Now" plays in the first episode of The Umbrella Academy. Netflix released the entire first season Feb. 15. During February, the song drew 2.9 million U.S. streams and sold 8,000 downloads.
Of the 10-position Top TV Songs chart, seven spots are occupied by songs featured in The Umbrella Academy. In the top five, only one track is from another show: Harry Nilsson's "Gotta Get Up," from Russian Doll, at No. 3.
