Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#262: Dec 28, 2008 - Jan 3, 2009

Chart At A Glance

  • First, a note: I froze my weekly chart during the last two weeks in December, when I did a Christmas special and my quarter-end and year-end specials. The “Last Chart” link goes to my Top 50 Of Fourth Quarter 2008
  • Well, 2009 gets off to a mostly quiet start on my chart
  • RED maintains #1 with “Pieces”, but downhere’s “Here I Am”, #1 for 2008, slides down to #5 this week
  • Third Day scores the first debut of the year, “Revelation”, at #21
  • However, “Revelation” displaces Matthew West’s “You Know Where To Find Me”, a song that has fallen on hard times in recent months, and now retires after almost 4 years charting
  • Many songs stand still or move only 1 spot

Top 50

Rank This Week Rank Last Week Song 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.
