Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#281: May 10 - 16, 2009

Chart At A Glance

  • Matthew West sits motionless at #1 again with “The Motions”, as does Mainstay at #2 with “Become Who You Are”
  • However, RED’s “Pieces” rebounds to #3, and The Fray step up to #5 with “You Found Me”
  • After 1 year in my Top 5, Sanctus Real’s “Whatever You’re Doing” dips down to #8
  • 1 year ago this week was the craziest week in the history of my charts, with not 1 song standing still from the previous week, plus a record 9 debuts and 1 re-entry
  • Of those 10 total entries, 5 are still charting, “Whatever You’re Doing”, “Heal The Wound”, “Give Me Your Eyes”, “Brand New Day”, and “Love Is Not A Fight”
  • As for this week, there’s some activity, though not a crazy amount; and, there’s only 1 debut, Marvin Sapp’s “Praise Him In Advance” at #50
  • Finally, Casting Crowns’ “Who Am I” begins its landmark 260th week on my chart, meaning it has charted for 5 years now, and has been in my Top 25 all that time

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.
