Chart At A Glance

  • Well, that was fast! After a stint of time at #1 (just 6 weeks), The Washington Projects’ “Time” takes a dive to #4, ousted by Third Day.
  • Third Day has broken another record! After achieving the latest first Top 10 debut in a chart year with “I Need A Miracle” only last week, they shatter the record for fastest rise to #1, just 2 weeks! The previous record was 5 weeks, last met by Disciple’s “Things Left Unsaid” in December 2007.
  • Incidentally, “I Need A Miracle” narrowly misses tying with “Things Left Unsaid” for the latest new #1 in a chart year.
  • So, how long will Third Day stay on top with their first ever #1 (and Top 5) hit? Given the slump the chart has been in this year, it’s impossible to guarantee any stability in the chart’s upper echelon. Perhaps the chart is due for more shakeups in the not-too-distant future?
  • Now, in other news, the rest of the week’s chart is fairly calm. Little movement is the prevailing trend, and there are no debuts. However, a Christmas song from last year and also a minor chart hit, Erica Lane’s “Angel In The Snow”, jumps back aboard at #43, just a week before becoming ineligible for re-entry. We’ll see if it sees more chart success this Christmas season, and if any new Christmas singles make their mark on my chart in the coming weeks!

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.
