Chart At A Glance

  • Bobby Tinsley’s “Difference” steps up to #3. Does it have a shot at finally dethroning Laura Story’s “Blessings”? We shall see in the coming weeks.
  • Jimmy Needham also steps up 1 spot with his 1st Top 10 on my chart, “If I Ever Needed Grace”.
  • Overall, this is a fairly tame week on the chart…not much in the way of any big movements.
  • Nevertheless, other songs continue making steady upward progress, such as Jason Gray’s “Good To Be Alive”, Group 1 Crew’s “He Said”, and MercyMe’s “The Hurt & The Healer”.
  • Further down, Sarah MacIntosh makes a nice run up the chart with “We Should Run”, up 8 from #38 to #30.
  • However, the the Weekly Jump (based on growing interest) goes to Sanctus Real’s “Keep My Heart Alive”, even though it’s only up 7 spots (to #43).
  • No debuts this week, but the “Songs Waiting In The Wings” bear watching.
  • For songs that have lyrics available, song titles are links to lyrics
  • “Watch” and “Play” icon links lead to music videos, full-length audio, or audio samples of the songs
  • Songs #51-#66 are “Closecalls”, recent or lingering falloffs from my Top 50. Closecalls charting 25+ weeks are also recurrents and generally ineligible for Top 50 re-entry
  • Songs below #66 are “Songs Waiting In The Wings”, new songs that have never ranked above #50, but have a good chance of doing so in the coming weeks

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.
