Chart Notes:

  • From the Fun With Numbers department, ten of the songs on this week’s chart are either by or feature an act in my top 40 for the first time. Five are bands, including Bastille and The 1975, three are solo males, like Mayer Hawthorne and Passenger and two are solo females, Ariana Grande and Ashley Monroe.
  • The Biggest Mover of the week belongs to a familiar fellow; that would be Passenger with “The Wrong Direction”, up 31-24. Ironically, he took a bigger leap up the chart last week of nine spots, but that was squashed by the massive jump of 31-12 by Coldplay‘s “Atlas”. Each of the singer’s three singles thus far have held the title of Biggest Mover for at least one week during their chart run.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the second hit in a row for the British quartet Bastille, “Laura Palmer”, which enters at #36. The song’s based off of a character from the 1990 television series Twin Peaks, in which the manners of her death during the first episode became one of the main arcs for the show. It was a minor hit earlier this year in several European countries, and is now actively charting in places like Belgium and Italy.
  • At #37 is the latest by Daughtry, who have gone a bit electro-pop on their latest single, “Waiting For Superman”. It’s from their forthcoming album titled Baptized. The debut of “Waiting” marks the band’s eleventh song to make my chart, two of which went to #1: 2009’s “No Surprise” and 2011’s “Crawling Back To You”.
  • Finally, at #40, is the latest song by Pink. “Walk Of Shame” is the fifth single to chart from The Truth About Love and is the followup to her recent #1 with Lily Rose Cooper, “True Love”. It’s already been serviced to radio in Australia and looks to be climbing up iTunes there as well.
