Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#268: Feb 8 - 14, 2009

Chart At A Glance

  • Sara Groves remains at #1 for a second week with “Love Is Still Worthy Cause”; she’s the first female act to top my chart for more than 1 week, in 7 years
  • However, will she stand up to the challenge that Fireflight may pose with their lofty #4 debut, “Stand Up”?
  • Fireflight now has 4 songs on my chart, but that probably won’t last long, as “Unbreakable” seems nearly off, and “The Hunger” takes a plunge out of my Top 25
  • All throughout my chart, several songs rise or rebound, including songs by Matthew West, Josh Groban, Sara Groves, Natalie Grant, tobyMac, and Jon Foreman
  • Toward the bottom of the chart, 2 other songs debut, “Always”, by Building 429 at #44, and “God Of This City”, by Bluetree at #46

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.
