Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#239: Jul 20 - 26, 2008

Chart At A Glance

  • Okay, this time last year, downhere was holding at #1 for week #52 with “A Better Way”, but this week, their latest falls from #1 after only 2 weeks!
  • #1 has been unusually unstable this year; 8 songs have gone to #1, with the longest reign lasting only 8 weeks so far, but, that record-holder returns to #1 this week, Sanctus Real’s “Whatever You’re Doing”
  • Jeff Johnson Band rebounds to #2 with their hard-hitting “Ruin Me”
  • Point Of Grace rises to #14 with their first Top 25 song on my chart, “Heal The Wound”. Could it become their first Top 10, too?
  • Likewise, could Fireflight score their first Top 10 with “Brand New Day”?
  • Francesca Battistelli and NEEDTOBREATHE inch up closer to my Top 25
  • The week’s lone debut is at #50 once again, but this time it’s Superchic[k]'s “Crawl”

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.
