Chart At A Glance

  • We’re now closing in on 4 straight months of my Top 5 holding their positions, and there’s little to suggest that anything may change soon.
  • Tenth Avenue North does rebound to #7 with “Worn”; they still do have a chance to penetrate my Top 5, as do any of the other songs in the bottom half of my Top 10. It’s just a matter of cracking through my Top 5’s defenses.
  • Never in the history of my charts, has my Top 5 (comprised of all current or former #1s, no less, held still for this long.
  • There’s little action to report in the rest of my Top 25, either. In fact, outside my Top 10, the first sign of movement is at #22, with Naomi Carroll’s first and only chart hit to date, “Waiting For The Day”, rebounding a few spots.
  • Further down, action picks up a bit, with recent debuts by Fiction Family and Skillet continuing to rise. Jonathan Thulin even scores another chart entry with “Dead Come To Life” at #44.
  • The debut displaces Heath McNease’s “Groundhog Day”, which only lasted 22 weeks. Therefore, the average age of the Top 50 songs increases by .56 to a new record of 63.4 weeks. How much longer will it keep increasing?

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.
