Chart At A Glance

  • Upheavals abound this week, wreaking havoc inside my Top 25 and especially my Top 10.
  • In only its third week charting, The Washington Project’s Spiral Galaxy mix of “Time” makes an out-of-this-world 30-spot jump from #33 to #3.
  • Many songs inside my Top 25, and some inside my Top 10, see a significant loss of interest, including Laura Story’s “Blessings”, the Fall Of The Week. Its lead over #2 continues to narrow; it may just be a matter of “time” now before we have a new #1.
  • Interestingly, a few songs on the rise are not exempt from seeing a loss of interest, such as Bobby Tinsley’s “Difference”, which rebounds to #2 as Jason Gray’s “Remind Me Who I Am” takes a bigger loss and slips to #4. Further down, “Good To Be Alive” takes a plunge to #24.
  • Britt Nicole also takes a plunge, as “Walk On The Water” loses 6 more spots to come in at #20, the lowest showing for the song to date.
  • Amidst the week’s losses, few other songs see some gains, such as Tenth Avenue North’s “Losing” and B.Reith’s “Simple Days”, both up about 5 spots each.
  • Finally, another time-related song sees a nice rebound on my chart—Skillet’s “One Day Too Late” jumps 10 to #37.
  • Unusual for an active week like this, there are no debuts.

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.
