Chart Notes:

  • Alright, Passenger fans, the 29-year-old likes to make to some history on my chart, and so, another feat it is for the young performer. He now holds the record for the most total weeks at #1 for a performer in any given chart year. Add together the 12 weeks “Let Her Go” stood at the top, plus the additional five that “Holes” has accumulated and you get 17, beating the 16 weeks racked up by Daniel Powter during my 2006 chart year (December 2005 – November 2006) with “Bad Day” (10 weeks) and “Jimmy Gets High” (6 weeks). Question is, can he keep doing with “The Wrong Direction” on the move? We shall wait and see, but for now, the guy’s doing some serious damage on my weekly chart.
  • Jumping from 14-10 is Danish trio New Politics with “Harlem”, the first act from Denmark ever to crack my top ten. They are originally from Copenhagen, the capital of the country. Previous Danish acts to either be considered for and/or made my chart include Infernal and Junior Senior.
  • Two songs making significant moves this week debuted on last week’s survey: The 1975 leaps from 38-31 with “Girls”, while Keane jumps from 40-32 with the week’s Biggest Mover, “Higher Than The Sun”. Both British bands are looking to go top ten in November or early December.
  • They just nearly missed my chart earlier this year with “This Is The New Year”; now, A Great Big World manages to sneak into the countdown with this week’s Highest Debut. “Say Something” enters at #39, their newest single released on Epic Records. Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino formed the band while attending New York University. (See my profile on them from January.)
  • A notch below the duo is the singer-songwriter born Andrew Mayer Cohen, but we know him better as 34-year-old Mayer Hawthorne. “Crime” is the third single to chart from the album Where Does This Door Go? and it debuts at #40. The two previous releases, “Her Favorite Song” and “The Stars Are Ours”, are at #29 and #12, respectively, in the countdown this week.
