Chart Notes:

  • He couldn’t quite get three of his songs together in the top ten at one time, but that’s no problem for 29-year-old Passenger. His third hit in a row from All The Little Lights, “The Wrong Direction”, jumps from 11-8 this week. It’s currently a minor hit in The Netherlands; no word on whether the song will be released beyond that country in the coming weeks or months.
  • “Well, she can’t be what you need if she’s seventeen,” sings vocalist Matthew Healy of The 1975 on their latest hit, “Girls”, yet their single lands at #17 on the countdown after a jump from #24. It’s looking to become the second top ten entry from the band following “Chocolate”, which peaked at #2 and falls out of the top ten this week.
  • Biggest Mover of the Week takes a huge 14 spot leap from 40-26. The Fray takes ownership of that one with “Love Don’t Die”, their tenth top 40 hit and first in about a year and a half. It was co-written and produced by Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic.
  • They’re just about to fall off with “Best Song Ever”, but never fear, One Direction is here with their followup single. In at #38 this week is the debut of “Story Of My Life”, the second release from Midnight Memories. The single was co-written by Jamie Scott of Graffiti6, who had my #1 song of last year with “Free”.
  • The second of two entries at #40 comes from a group I saw earlier this week for an acoustic loft show. That would be Fitz & The Tantrums with “The Walker”, the third entry to make my chart. Last time around, the sextet spent five weeks at #2 with “Out Of My League”.
