Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#265: Jan 18 - 24, 2009

Chart At A Glance

  • An interesting week, this is
  • Sanctus Real and Casting Crowns seem to be playing “musical chairs” in the #2 and #3 spots, while RED extends their reign at #1 to 8 weeks
  • Matt Maher scores a surprisingly lofty #9 debut with his brand-new single, “Empty And Beautiful”. The third time must be the charm, as his first two singles missed my Top 50 entirely
  • The rest of my Top 25 is quite active, as practically all songs fluctuate in rank; plus, two other songs debut
  • Those other debuts are RED’s “Never Be The Same”, at #20, and newcomer Rachel Scott’s “The Least Of These” at #25
  • The bottom of my chart is active too, as more songs fluctuate and are displaced by the debuts. Krystal Meyers even debuts at #44 with “My Freedom”

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.
