#500: Jul 28 - Aug 3, 2013

Chart At A Glance

  • This week is another fairly active one on my Top 50, except in my Top 5 (surprise, surprise).
  • Lindsey Stirling holds 3 of my Top 5 slots once again, and that will probably be the case for quite some time.
  • However, Tenth Avenue North may be making another bid for Top 5 entry with “Worn”—the song jumps back up to #6 as the Jump Of The Week.
  • Perennial chart favorite “Pieces”, by RED, may re-enter my Top 10 yet again, as it rebounds 3 spots to #11.
  • Further down at a high #21 is the week’s only debut, “Someone Else”, by The Jellyrox, a side project of the band Eleventyseven. They previously had a minor chart hit in 2011 with the hilarious “Quota”, peaking at #29. We’ll see how “Someone Else” fares—it’s already off to a great start as it’s effortlessly bested their previous peak, and may yet rise higher.
  • Recent debuts by Fiction Family and Skillet continue rising slightly, amidst the other songs taking up to a 6-point hit below my Top 25.
  • As a result of the #21 debut, we lose Mandy Gawley’s “Let It Go” after 72 weeks, meaning the average age of the Top 50 songs also takes another slight hit—down another .44 to 62.82 weeks.
  • Finally, in celebration of this week’s chart being my 500th Top 50, I’ve created a special Top 500 that looks back on the best performing songs on both my Top 50 and Top 20 Lifesongs. Check it out!

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.
