Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#415: Dec 4 - 10, 2011

Chart At A Glance

  • The final regular chart week of 2011 (before I freeze my Top 50 for the rest of December) sees quite a bit of action
  • Sanctus Real’s “Redeemer” continues climbing, now up to #6, and Kutless rebounds into my Top 10 with “What Faith Can Do”
  • Nichole Nordeman’s and Amy Grant’s “I’m With You” steps up to #13, and may become a Top 10 hit early next year
  • Last week’s Christmas entries by Erica Lane and Becky Kelley jump nearly 10 spots each
  • Further down, songs by Bebo Norman, MercyMe, Chris Tomlin, and Ginny Owens rise a few spots
  • Finally, 2 non-Christmas songs make a rare end-of-year debut toward the bottom; All Sons & Daughters comes in at #44 with “Let It Shine”, while The Heyday debuts at #48 with “Somebody To Someone”
  • Those 2 debuts push the total of songs charting in 2011, up to 130. That is the most in 5 years, since 2006’s 136

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.
