#456: Sep 16 - 22, 2012

Chart At A Glance

  • It’s a down week for my chart, as nearly 10 songs see a loss of interest, including all of my Top 5.
  • Shake The Nation may shake things up in my Top 5, as “Bruises And Scars” ascends to #6. Previously, the song was stuck at #8 or #9 for nearly 3 months.
  • Britt Nicole’s “Walk On The Water” slides down 3 more spots to #14, to become the Fall Of The Week once again. Earlier in the year, the song slipped to #16 before rebounding… will that happen again, or is the song on its way out this time? The song has had the current longest run by a female artist inside my Top 10 and Top 5, but, of course, (most) everything comes to an end eventually.
  • Older songs by JJ Heller, Switchfoot, RED, and Naomi Carroll rebound slightly.
  • A few newer songs post increases as well, such as those by Jenny & Tyler, Curt Collins, Brandon Heath, Matthew West, and The Washington Projects.
  • No songs debut this week, but B.Reith stages a comeback with “The Comeback Kid” at #50.

Top 50

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.
