Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#333: May 9 - 15, 2010

Chart At A Glance

  • Britt Nicole stays on top for a seventh week with “Walk On The Water”, and the rest of my Top 5 remains largely unchanged, save for Avalon and Matthew West trading the #4 and #5 places
  • downhere are no strangers to the top of my chart; they had the #1 songs of the year in 2006, 2007, and 2008. This week, they debut not quite at #1, but at a still high #6 with “You’re Not Alone”
  • NEEDTOBREATHE breathes additional new life into my Top 10, as “Something Beautiful” flies up 14 spots to #8
  • RED’s “Pieces” slips out of my Top 10; the song is probably on its way out now, having hopefully fulfilled its role
  • As the old continues to fall away, new continues to take its place
  • For example, tobyMac’s “Get Back Up” and Tenth Avenue North’s “Healing Begins” will probably be hot contenders for my Top 10 ranks in the coming weeks
  • Maybe Jeremy Camp will even stage a grand return to my Top 10; “Walk By Faith” is back up to #21 this week
  • This week marks the 2-year anniversary of the craziest week on my chart, when a record 10 songs entered, and not 1 song stood still from the previous week
  • This week, only a total of 4 songs debut; definitely not shabby, though
  • Finally, another anniversary of note: Casting Crowns enter week #312 of charting with “Who Am I”; the song has been charting 6 years now, still entirely in my Top 25. Talk about staying power!

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.
