Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#397: Jul 31 - Aug 6, 2011

Chart At A Glance

  • There’s some shuffling around in my Top 5, as Sanctus Real steps back up to #2 with “Lead Me” for the first time in months, and Skillet’s “Lucy” reaches a new peak of #4
  • The rest of my Top 10 stands still, but for how long? MIKESCHAIR steps up to #13 with “Someone Worth Dying For”; having their first Top 10 is not out of the question
  • Further down, Jason Gray continues rising with “Remind Me Who I Am”, now up to #20
  • However, the biggest mover is Group 1 Crew; “Let’s Go” is definitely going—up 13 spots to #22
  • Below my Top 25, the only significant riser is Wayne Kerr Band’s “The Mirror”, up 3 to #28
  • 3 is also the number of debuts this week. Songs by Ronnie Freeman, Switchfoot, and Dominic Balli enter respectively at #40, #42, and #43
  • The debuts displace the longevity champ into retirement, however. After 368 weeks on, or just over 7 years, Jeremy Camp’s “Walk By Faith” finally falls off
  • For the first time since mid-July 2004, Jeremy Camp is absent from my chart. His previous chart hit was last year’s “Healing Hand Of God”. “Jesus Saves” scraped the bottom briefly last autumn, but didn’t fare well, and current single “The Way” has failed to chart. Will he re-enter the chart at some point with a later single? Only time will tell
  • “Walk By Faith” as the lonegivty champ is survived by Josh Groban’s “You Are Loved”. The 2007 debut has been charting 229 weeks now

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.
