Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#414: Nov 27 - Dec 3, 2011

Chart At A Glance

  • Laura Story’s “Blessings” is still on top, even after 7 months now. The previous contender for #1, Switchfoot’s “Restless”, slips again this week to #7, and now the chances of any song overtaking “Blessings” anytime soon are slim
  • With that said, there’s quite a bit of movement elsewhere on the chart, which is not too common this late in the year
  • Ronnie Freeman’s “Together” steps up to #5, and is likely the year’s final new Top 5-peaking song
  • Sanctus Real’s “Redeemer” also inches up, to a new #8 peak. The song may not have performed that well at radio, but it’s looking to make a strong year-end finish on my chart
  • A couple other songs rise a few spots inside my Top 25, but action picks up in the bottom 25
  • Erica Lane scores a strong #28 debut with a Christmas single, “Angels In The Snow”
  • And not far behind is another Christmas song, Becky Kelley’s “Where’s The Line To See Jesus?”, which re-enters at #31, after previously charting in January
  • Finally, the chart year is winding down; next week’s chart will be the last regular chart in 2011, before I freeze my charts for the last 3 weeks of December. During that time, look for my 2011 Top 50 Christmas, and 2011 Top 100

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.
