Chart At A Glance

  • I suppose action up in my Top 10 has never been duller (at least in a long while)—everything stands still for a third straight week, and my Top 5 holds still for a tenth straight week.
  • The lack of movement up there has finally made possible the breaking of another record: this week, Laura Story’s “Blessings” logs week #111 inside my Top 5, finally overtaking the 110 weeks that Casting Crowns achieved with “Praise You In This Storm” back in 2005-2007. A most impressive feat indeed!
  • My Top 10 likely won’t stand still much longer, as Lindsey Stirling still looks to rise further soon with “Zi-Zi’s Journey” (currently parked at #11 for a second week).
  • Another song that will likely vie for a spot in the upper echelon is also the week’s only (though quite lofty) debut, Finding Favour’s “Slip On By”. That poignant song leaps on to my Top 50 at #16…after nearly slipping by unnoticed on my musical radar.
  • Elsewhere on the chart, there’s little more to report. The bottom 25 are certainly mostly quiet. Tenth Avenue North’s “Losing” falls off after a modest 37-week run, but that doesn’t hamper the average of my Top 50 songs one bit; in fact, the average once again reaches a new record, now up to 59.16 weeks.

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.
