Chart At A Glance

  • Bobby Tinsley seems to be making quite the “difference” in my Top 10, as his namesake song continues inching up, now at #4 this week.
  • Not to be outdone, however, Jimmy Needham’s “If I Ever Needed Grace” remains not far behind, newly breaking into the Top 10 at #9.
  • Further down, Jason Gray’s “Good To Be Alive” moves into my Top 20, up 4 to #19. It’s another good week for that song to be alive on the chart.
  • It’s a good week too, for Group 1 Crew and MercyMe, as their latest songs newly reach into the top half of my chart.
  • MercyMe in particular, has not had a big chart hit in a few years (since 2007/2008’s “Bring The Rain”). They did have minor hits last year with “Beautiful” and “Move”, but can “The Hurt & The Healer” return them to former chart glory? We shall see.
  • Toward the bottom, 2 songs climb aboard, NewSong’s “The Same God” at #48, and Sanctus Real’s “Keep My Heart Alive” at #50. The latter especially has been a “slow burner”, inching upward in the unpublished remainder of my top 100, over the last 3 months, at least. Let’s see how well it’ll do.
  • Finally, Matthew West’s “The Motions” continues hanging on near the bottom, approaching 200 weeks charting. It may or may not make it, but regardless, it has had quite a long, successful run. Further up the chart, however, its contemporary, RED’s “Pieces”, did reach 200 weeks not long ago, and still seems to have quite some staying power left, even if it is falling slowly.

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.
