Chart At A Glance

  • Once again, most of my Top 10 stands still, like it did last week. However, Bebo Norman and RED trade #9 and #10 with respective songs “We Fall Apart” and “Pieces”.
  • Tenth Avenue North scores the Jump Of The Week with “Worn”, rising another 3 spots to #13. Top 10 sure looks likely for this powerful song.
  • Matthew West’s “The Motions” sure seems like it just won’t give up. This #1 song of 2009 on my chart, rebounds 7 spots to #23, as more recent single “Forgiveness” slips 6 to #30.
  • Matthew does have the week’s only debut, however, “Hello, My Name Is”, at #48.
  • Rounding out the rest of the chart, we have recent debuts by RED, Heath McNease, and Jason Gray moving up 3-6 spots each.
  • Finally, we say goodbye to a winter/Christmas song that has lingered for a while, Erica Lane’s “Angels In The Snow”. The springtime thawing has pushed it below #50, this time for good. Falling after 36 weeks charted in 2 runs, the song is now ineligible for Top 50 re-entry. It’s sure to remain a mainstay on my playlist around Christmas time, though.
  • And speaking of Christmas, one last Christmas song continues hanging around, Lindsey Stirling’s take on “What Child Is This”. As the song that introduced me to her brand of music, it’s likely to stay around for quite a while, no matter the season.

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.
