This week’s other notable alternative options: EL VY’s “Return To The Moon” (4 adds, 8th-most-added, tie), Andrew McMahon In the Wilderness’ “High Dive” (4 adds, 8th, tie), Adele’s “Hello” (3 adds, 10th, tie), Atlas Genius’ “Molecules” (3 adds, 10th, tie), Chris Cornell’s “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart” (3 adds, 10th, tie), Disclosure’s “Magnets (featuring Lorde)” (3 adds, 10th, tie), Panic!
