Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#278: Apr 19 - 25, 2009

Chart At A Glance

  • In this otherwise quiet week on my chart, a new #1 emerges, Matthew West’s “The Motions”
  • However, Mainstay seems poised to not fall far anytime soon, as I still maintain growing interest in “Become Who You Are”
  • Meanwhile, Top 5 mainstay for almost 8 months now, RED’s “Pieces”, yields 1 spot to Sanctus Real’s “Whatever You’re Doing”, itself nearly 1 year old in my Top 5
  • Outside my Top 10, there’s little movement; only 4 songs move more than 1 spot, and about half of all songs stand still from last week
  • Finally, no songs debut, once again

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.
