#459: Oct 7 - 13, 2012

Chart At A Glance

  • Laura Story’s “Blessings” hangs on at #1 for another week, but its hold on the spot continues weakening. It’s the “Fall Of The Week” in terms of interest.
  • The Washington Projects’ surprise Top 5 hit, “Time”, maintains #2, as it sees another healthy gain in interest.
  • Bebo Norman rebounds to #4 with previous single, “We Fall Apart”. His current single “The Broken” could make a debut in the coming weeks.
  • Further down, Building 429’s “Where I Belong” slips out of my Top 10 after a long 8 months inside it, including 4 months inside my Top 5. The former and long-running #1 song at radio may not have topped my chart, but it’s still been their best-performing song.
  • There’s not much other movement inside my Top 25, save for Matthew West’s former #1, “The Motions” rebounding 7 spots to #25.
  • Interestingly, “The Motions” now ranks higher than the song that bumped it from #1, Britt Nicole’s “Walk On The Water”; Britt’s song slides down another 6 spots to #28
  • Several songs fluctuate below my Top 25, but there are no debuts, only a few re-entries. Samuel Wilson’s “It’s Me Who Leaves” climbs back aboard at #35, while KJ-52’s “Dangerous” makes a reappearance at #46

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.
