Chart At A Glance

  • Lindsey Stirling claims a second week on top with her major hit, “Crystallize”, and even sees another sizable gain in interest. However, could she possibly replace herself at #1?
  • “Elements” steps up 1 to #3, but, now knocking on the door (more like about to beat it down) to my Top 5 is “Song Of The Caged Bird”, the Jump Of The Week that’s up 4 spots from #10 to #6. The latter could definitely prove a huge contender for #1 soon.
  • Well, action has overall calmed down after last week’s explosiveness, but this week is no slouch either!
  • Lindsey’s “Zi-Zi’s Journey” rises to #21; however, the real big story in the middle of my chart is the #24 debut, Marie Miller’s “You’re Not Alone”. Previously, Marie peaked at only #25 over 5 years ago with “Cold”, and charted only 19 weeks with that (although the song fared much better in its second life on my Top 20 Lifesongs in 2009). Then, last year, she had a very minor hit scrape the bottom of my chart for just 24 weeks, “Make The Most Of Me” (only peaking at #44). But now, on the strength of her touching music video, Marie scores a strong debut with her latest single. Let’s see how well it’ll do!
  • 1 other song debuts further down, Warren Barfield’s “The Right Time” at #41. Warren has only had 1 other chart hit to date, 2008’s Top 10 “Love Is Not A Fight”. Could this be “the right time” for more chart success for him? Well, stay tuned and find out!

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.
