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 MRC Data during the corresponding period of September 2021.
“Hello” leads the list after appearing in the ninth episode of the Apple TV+ series’ second season. In September 2021, the song garnered 1.7 million U.S. on-demand streams and 5,000 downloads, according to MRC Data. Its renewed attention drove the song back onto multiple Billboard charts (where it originally appeared in 2010 and 2011, including a No. 46 peak on the Billboard Hot 100), led by a new peak of No. 2 on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales tally dated Oct. 2.
The Ted Lasso songs ranking at Nos. 2 and 3 were heard in the second season’s eighth episode. Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know” comes in at No. 2 (4.2 million streams, 3,000 downloads), followed by Rex Orange County’s “Loving Is Easy,” featuring Benny Sings (4.7 million streams, 1,000 downloads). The former peaked at No. 50 on the Hot 100 in February 2005, while the latter was a solid Alternative Airplay hit at No. 27 (October 2018).
