#489: May 12 - 18, 2013

Chart At A Glance

  • Action picks up somewhat this week…just not so much in my Top 10, however.
  • No songs rise into or fall out of my Top 10, and in fact, my Top 5 remains fully unchanged yet again. However, Laura Story’s “Blessings” may be staging a rebound, as it sees an uptick in interest, complemented by a weakening of interest in “Time” at #4.
  • RED’s “Pieces” takes a nosedive in interest to become the Fall Of The Week, but it only equates to a loss of 2 spots, paling in comparison to the 6-8 point losses sustained by Heath McNease and Switchfoot further down.
  • Jason Gray scores the Jump Of The Week with “Nothing Is Wasted”, rising 4 to #19. “Remind Me Who I Am” also rebounds 2 to #20—he maintains a “double play”.
  • Matthew West’s previous “double play” of “Hello, My Name Is” and “Forgiveness” is broken this week, as the former edges up 3 to #37 and the latter slips 1 to #41.
  • Overall, it was a pretty good week; a number of songs see gains in interest, even if they failed to rise a lot (or even slipped a few spots instead).
  • No songs debut, but we have 2 re-entries at the bottom, Sara Groves’ “Miracle” and Annie Moses Band’s “Blush”. They bump Jonny Diaz and B.Reith off, trimming a bit off the average age of the Top 50 (down from last week’s record 58.3 weeks to 57.9).

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.
