Chart At A Glance

  • After a crazy last week, action settles down somewhat this week.
  • The Washington Projects have wasted no time rocketing up my chart; “Time” blazed up 30 spots to #3 last week, and now it steps up to #2. It’s a hot contender for #1, all right. After 75 weeks at #1 now, the time of Laura Story’s “Blessings” may soon come to an end.
  • There’s not much movement between #5 and #20; however, Curt Collins does newly peak into my Top 20, as “Growing Young” rises 3 to #18.
  • A song that will just not let go, Matthew West’s “The Motions” rebounds 3 to #32 and is the Jump Of The Week. His current single “Forgiveness” lingers one step behind at #33.
  • Finally, only 1 song debuts this week, a single that’s been very slowly growing on me for months, Wavorly’s “Part That Won’t Let Go”. It enters at #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.
