Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#270: Feb 22 - 28, 2009

Chart At A Glance

  • Last week was relatively quiet, but this week is anything but
  • Only 4 songs stand still from last week
  • What is this? Sara Groves’ hold on #1 already seems to be weakening, and it’s only her 4th week on top
  • Meanwhile, Casting Crowns rebound to #4, while Mainstay newly rises into my Top 10 with “Become Who You Are”
  • The rest of my Top 25 sees plenty of action, such as Matthew West’s rising to #14 with “The Motions”, and plenty of songs experiencing a loss of interest
  • Krystal Meyers does make some noise with “My Freedom”, however, taking the track up 24 spots to #19
  • The bottom half of my chart sees plenty of action too; in fact, not 1 song stands still
  • 2 songs debut, The Fray’s “You Found Me” at #29, and newcomers Chris And Conrad with “Lead Me To The Cross”, at #38
  • Finally, RED re-enters with “Never Be The Same” at #47

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.
