Chart Notes:

  • At just four weeks old, Coldplay‘s “Atlas” is the fastest climbing song of the year by far, already up to #3. It comes from the soundtrack to the upcoming movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Last year, Adele‘s “Skyfall”, also from a movie (Skyfall, as if you couldn’t tell), made it to #1 in its sixth week. Can the band beat her by a week or tie the run she set last year? Will “Atlas” make it to #1 period? Stay tuned!
  • Rolling into this week’s top ten is the second hit in a row for the Australian sextet Sheppard, leaping 15-10 with “Hold My Tongue”. They previously made it to #10 for three weeks with “Let Me Down Easy” earlier this year. In the history of musical mouths, only one has tied its tongue around the top spot, appropriately titled “Tongue Tied” by Grouplove. It spent two weeks at #1 last year. As for the Hot 100, you have to go way back to 1971 to tickle the taste buds of top 40 hits; that’s when Brenda & The Tabulations went to #23 with “Right On The Tip Of My Tongue”. There’s your useless musical trivia for the day.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the second entry for The 1975, who debut at #38 with “Girls”. The four members in the band met at school in Wilmslow, England. Their first single, “Chocolate”, climbs to #2 after three consecutive weeks at #3.
  • There’s a new duo in at #39 this week. Hudson Taylor arrive from Dublin, Ireland consisting of 19-year-old Alfie and 21-year-old Harry Hudson-Taylor. The single is lifted from their forthcoming EP, Osea, due in the United Kingdom on October 13. (Read my profile on the duo.)
  • Lastly, at #40, is a song that just debuted on Friday from Keane, “Higher Than The Sun”. This is now the band’s fifteenth single to reach my top 40, several of which have hit the top ten, including 2004’s “Somewhere Only We Know” (#7), 2006’s “Is It Any Wonder?” (#2) and 2012’s “Silenced By The Night” (#1 for 4 weeks). (Listen to the single premiere of “Sun”.)
