Chart At A Glance

  • My Top 5 have held their positions for over 3 months now, and this week…is still not the week that something finally happens up there.
  • Lindsey Stirling maintains her perch at #1 with “Song Of The Caged Bird”, now in its 15th week on top. Will she become the third solo female to log over a year at the top, after Britt Nicole and Laura Story? Of course, only time will tell.
  • Jason Gray’s “Nothing Is Wasted” holds at #9, despite seeing a nice growth in interest big enough to make it the Jump Of The Week.
  • Just behind at #10 is Finding Favour with “Slip On By”, the only song inside my Top 25 to rise more than 1 spot.
  • Action tapers off below my Top 25, but there is 1 debut to speak of, Eternity Focus’ “Live The Lyrics” at #45. The song displaces RED’s “Perfect Life”, but since “Perfect Life” only spent 25 weeks, the fall does not hurt the average of the Top 50 songs. In fact, the record is up another .50 weeks to 61.84 weeks. Crazy!

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.
