Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#237: Jul 6 - 12, 2008

Chart At A Glance

  • Wow, for another time this year, ALL songs change rank from the previous week
  • Even more remarkable, however, is that #1 is a debut! It’s “Here I Am”, by downhere
  • The song is the fourth #1 debut in the history of my charts, but it also makes for the first time my chart has ever had two back-to-back #1 debuts
  • However, as if #1 is the only newsmaker; there are 2 other debuts inside my Top 10, making for a rare total of 3 Top 10 debuts
  • So many songs move up or down at least 5 spots, all over my chart
  • This has been the craziest year on my chart so far, but it’s only half over
  • Finally, amidst all the craziness this week, five songs fall, including two that retire, MercyMe’s “Bring The Rain” and Casting Crowns’ “Praise You In This Storm”
  • Which means that for the first time ever since the first Christian songs debuted on my chart the week of December 27, 2003, MercyMe has no songs inside my Top 50
  • But their latest, “You Reign”, is bubbling under and may rise into my Top 50 in the coming weeks

Top 50

Rank This WeekRank Last WeekSong Title, by Artist
For visual browsers only, Bullets (e.g., ▲ and ▼) appear on songs seeing a gain or loss of interest, regardless of movement. Upward bullets show gains—white for slight gains, aqua for high, and gold for very high. Downward bullets show losses—grey for slight losses, purple for high, and black for very high. “Jump Of The Week” and “Fall Of The Week”, when present, indicate songs with the biggest change in interest. Finally, songs below #50 become recurrents after 25+ weeks charting, or after 40+ weeks if they never peaked above #26. For more details, see my chart methodology.
