Chart Notes:

  • What gives? No Passenger song at #1? Yes, blog readers, it’s true. After five weeks in that top spot, “Holes” has been uprooted and replanted in the runner-up position, leaving Coldplay and their “Atlas” to map out a jump from 2-1. This is quartet’s fourth #1 on my top 40 following 2008’s “Viva La Vida” and 2011’s “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” and “Paradise”. It appears on the soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which also makes it the first movie song to reach the top since Adele‘s “Skyfall” (from Skyfall) last year.
  • This week, I’ll be heading to New York City for the CMJ Music Marathon! It’s my first time going and I’m very excited about it. One of the acts performing there is at #8 in the countdown; that would be Sheppard with “Hold My Tongue”. What kind of effect will the music conference have on my chart next week? Find out very soon.
  • For the second week in a row, British rockers Keane take the Biggest Mover title with “Higher Than The Sun”, up another seven spots from 32-25. Sunnier days are ahead for this one as many a sunny title have gone top 10 on my chart, from “Anna Sun” by Walk The Moon (#6) to “Brighter Than The Sun” by Colbie Caillat (#4) and “Stare Into The Sun” by Graffiti6 (#1).
  • Two newcomers enter into the countdown this week. Country singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves takes this week’s Highest Debut with “Follow Your Arrow”, which debuts at #38. Her largest single on the Country airplay survey thus far is “Merry Go ‘Round”, which went to #10 this year. Also, at #39, is the first top 40 hit for Bronze Radio Return called “Further On”. The band is currently on tour with a former Adam’s Top 40 chart-topper, Graham Colton, whose “Best Days” spent three weeks at #1 in 2008.
  • With his sixth hit, Matt Nathanson is in at #40 with “Kinks Shirt”. The Kinks charted twelve top 40 singles on the Hot 100, including top tens like 1970’s “Lola” (#9) and 1983’s “Come Dancing” (#6). Nathanson first made my New & Active in 2004 with “Suspended”, and later hit the top 40 for the first time in 2007 with “Car Crash”, a three-week #1 later that year. His previous single, “Mission Bells”, rose to #24.
