Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#263: Jan 4 - 10, 2009

Chart At A Glance

  • Last week was relatively quiet on my chart, but this week is anything but!
  • A bomb might as well have went off this week, causing the chaos on my chart
  • Several songs fall, even plunge, while a few rise dramatically
  • For example, Casting Crowns rise to #2 with “Slow Fade”, while “Does Anybody Hear Her” steps down to #50, vulnerable to displacement by the next chart debut
  • Speaking of debuts, no new debuts occur, but 1 song re-enters, Fireflight’s “The Hunger”, which comes in at a new peak of #19
  • Among other risers are Paul Alan, Nate Sallie, Mainstay, and Britt Nicole
  • And, among other fallers are Jeremy Camp (“Walk By Faith” plunges out of my Top 10 to its lowest rank since early April 2005), StorySide:B, Sara Groves, Sanctus Real, Natalie Grant, and BarlowGirl

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.
