Chart At A Glance

  • Action picks up once again after a bit of a lull last week.
  • Lindsey Stirling flies up from #6 to #3 with “Song Of The Caged Bird”. “Crystallize” holds at #1, and “Elements” only slips a spot to #4. Nevertheless, Lindsey is the first artist to ever have 3 songs inside my Top 5 at the same time.
  • Lindsey also scores the highest debut of the week at #38 with another older but still active song, “We Found Love”. That makes for a record 7 songs by her charting on my Top 50! However, “Stars Align” appears to be on its way out, as it’s down to #50. Ha, as much as I love her music, not every song will be a chart hit.
  • In other chart news, Paul Cardall’s “Passing Time” jumps from #12 to #8, still wasting no time.
  • Further down, Lindsey’s “Zi-Zi’s Journey” continues climbing, now up to #16. Long-running favorite “Waiting For The Day” and more recent debut “Buried Beneath” are also up a few spots, right behind it.
  • Switchfoot rebounds into my Top 25 with “Restless”…guess the song is not ready to rest yet. And, because I feel like making another lame pun, ha, Tenth Avenue North’s latest song sure is not worn out yet! “Worn” flies up 12 to #26, resting just in front of previous single “Losing” at #27. The latter stalled out around the mid 20s—will “Worn” suffer the same fate? Watch it in the coming weeks!
  • Wrapping up the news, Warren Barfield’s “The Right Time” steps up 5 to #34, and RED scores the week’s other debut with “Hold Me Now” at #41.

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.
