Chart Notes:

  • For the second week in a row, the Australian band Sheppard rank at #1 with “Hold My Tongue”. They’re one of two six-piece bands in the top 40 this week along with Fitz & The Tantrums, who climb to #30 this week with “The Walker”. Sheppard‘s self-titled EP, where “Tongue” originates, was mastered by engineer Don Bartley, who also performed similar duties on charting singles by Alanis Morissette and Savage Garden.
  • Two songs tie for the Biggest Mover of the Week: “Story Of My Life” from One Direction jumps 28-20, while “Of The Night” by Bastille takes a drive from 34-26. “Story” is the boy band’s ninth top 40 hit, while “Of” is the quartet’s third single to make my top 40, with all three still on the chart.
  • The biggest news of the week is those five debuts all lined up from 40-36 on the chart, which are led by the California trio of sisters named HAIM. They debut at #36 with “The Wire”, a recent top 20 single in Australia and the United Kingdom. Their album, Days Are Gone, recently went top ten on the Billboard 200.
  • For what could be the first time ever, two solo members of a still active band debut in the top 40 together and back-to-back. The band is the hugely successful Take That, and at #37 is 42-year-old Gary Barlow with “Let Me Go”, while 39-year-old Robbie Williams, who rejoined the group in 2010, is at #38 with “Go Gentle”. Both are looking forward to some major holiday sales: Barlow’s Since I Saw You Last, his first solo album in 14 years, is out in the United Kingdom on November 25, while Williams’s album, Swings Both Ways, is out a week earlier on the 18th.
  • Further down at #39 is a former opening act for Mr. Williams, Olly Murs with “Hand On Heart”. It’s the fifth top 40 single from his Right Place, Right Time album, and all five have charted at some point during this chart year. Then, there’s “Underneath The Tree” by Kelly Clarkson, debuting at #40. It’s the first holiday release to make it on during this season and it looks like it could be the biggest one in some time.
