#467: Dec 2 - 8, 2012

Chart At A Glance

  • After quite an interesting last couple of weeks, the chart settles down significantly this week, as it usually does this time of year.
  • Third Day’s “I Need A Miracle” maintains #1 for a second week, while previous #1, The Washington Projects’ “Time”, continues slipping, now down to #6.
  • The only major story this week is Erica Lane’s “Angel In The Snow”; my top favorite Christmas debut of last year, the song is definitely back for another round of charting this season. It is the Jump Of The Week, as it jumps an impressive 21 spots to #22. It peaked at #20 in its previous run—can it go higher? We shall see next week!
  • No songs debut, but Evan Craft’s recent debut, “Broken Heart”, resurfaces at #50 as KJ-52’s “Dangerous” slips off once again.
  • Next week’s chart will be the final regular chart of 2012, as I prepare for my annual Top 50 Christmas chart, and the year-end Top 100 the week after. I will be freezing my regular Top 50 chart those last 2 weeks in the year.

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.
