#488: May 5 - 11, 2013

Chart At A Glance

  • Another fairly quiet week passes by on my chart, with little significant movement to report.
  • My Top 5 hold still yet again, but songs in the rest of my Top 10 do trade places with each other.
  • Heath McNease’s “Groundhog Day” rises 7 spots to become the Jump Of The Week, as well as only one of 3 songs to move more than 3 spots.
  • Jason Gray scores a “double play” as “Remind Me Who I Am” slips 3 to #22 to meet “Nothing Is Wasted” inching up 2 to #23. Interestingly, Matthew West maintains a “double play” for the second week with “Forgiveness” and “Hello, My Name Is” further down.
  • No songs debut this week, prompting the overturning of a record: The songs on my Top 50 now have aged to an average of 58 weeks, even as activity has overall picked up this year compared to last year. The record is now 58.3 weeks, more exactly, beating the old record of 57.84 weeks set back in March 2010. How long will this “graying” of my chart continue? I guess only time will tell, ha.

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.
