Chart At A Glance

  • Well, Lindsey Stirling has done it again! She scores her third #1 on my Top 50 with “Song Of The Caged Bird”, as “Crystallize” slips to #2. In doing so, she becomes the first artist to occupy my Top 2 spots at the same time—that has never happened in the history of my charts, as far as I can recall.
  • Lindsey is also the first to have 3 songs reach #1, beating the record previously held by Casting Crowns, downhere, and Jeremy Camp. Granted, Lindsey so far hasn’t spent near as many total weeks at #1 as they have (she’s only spent 11), but I predict her latest #1 will spend plenty of time on top.
  • In other chart news…oh, hello! There’s another interesting first this week: my entire Top 5 is comprised of current or former #1 songs. Nice! The Washington Projects’ “Time” rebounds to #4, while Laura Story’s “Blessings”, former long-reigning queen of my Top 50, holds at #5.
  • Further down, Switchfoot’s “Restless” continues rebounding, now up to #18. Close behind, Tenth Avenue North is up another 5 spots with “Worn”.
  • Even further down in the second half, Warren Barfield’s “The Right Time” makes another healthy 5-point gain, while Lindsey Stirling’s “We Found Love” finds itself jumping 6 spots to #32. RED’s latest debut, “Hold Me Now”, rises 5 to #36.
  • No songs debut, but, Wavorly’s “Part That Won’t Let Go” resurfaces at #49, displacing Lindsey Stirling’s “Stars Align”.

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.
