'Madness' and 'Feel It Still' - Sharing the Spoils

Just two spins (2,401 vs 2,399) kept 'Feel It Still' at the summit on the 2 December 2017-dated chart over second-place 'Walk on Water' by Thirty Seconds to Mars with prior #1 'Thunder' by Imagine Dragons occupying the third spot and Beck's latest track 'Up All Night' climbing fast in fourth position.

Both songs have now topped the Billboard Alternative airplay chart for 19 weeks and both have Warner/Chappell as music publishers and WMG (Warner Bros. and Atlantic, respectively) as their parent record company.

Peak Weekly All-Genre US Radio Audience Impressions compiled by Nielsen Music/BDS: 30 million for 'Madness' reaching #40 in 2013 and 128 million for 'Feel It Still' reaching #1 in 2017

Both songs charted at US Alternative, Triple A, Pop Mainstream, and Adult Top 40 and have been certified Platinum or higher for sales/streaming greater than 1 million units by the RIAA

'Madness' was nominated for Best Rock Song at the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards while 'Feel It Still' was submitted for consideration in the Pop Duo/Group field [60th Annual Grammy Award nominations will be announced 28 November 2017]

Number of songwriter credits for 'Madness': 1 Matthew James Bellamy


Number of songwriter credits for 'Feel It Still': 10 (5 Portugal. The Man band members; 2 producers; and 3 for 'Please Mr Postman')


The vocal melody on this track [reportedly inspired by US presidential candidate Bernie Sanders campaign] interpolates the 1961 The Marvelettes #1 hit song:

'Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now...'

'Oh yes, wait a minute Mister Postman...'

John Gourley told Billboard magazine: "Anytime you borrow - or, should I say, buy - the melody from 'Please Mr. Postman,' I feel like it should work."
