Chart At A Glance

  • The Washington Projects spend a second week on top with “Time”, after their historic overtaking of #1 last week. Former #1, Laura Story’s “Blessings”, holds at #2.
  • In fact, my whole Top 5 and nearly my whole Top 10 hold their positions from last week. Only JJ Heller and Wakeup Starlight trade spots #8 and #9.
  • A handful of songs fluctuate 4 or 5 spots this week, but that’s about it for any significant action—it’s overall a slower week compared to last week.
  • Recent debuts by RED, Wavorly, and Citizen Way inch up a few spots each.
  • Icon For Hire’s “Get Well” re-enters my Top 50 at #48, while The Afters score the lone debut at #50, “Life Is Beautiful”. The Afters have not had a hit on my chart since 2009’s “Ocean Wide”. Will they fare better with “Life Is Beautiful”, even despite its late debut? Of course, only time will tell.

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.
