Chart Notes:

  • If loving it is “wrong”, I don’t want to be right. Luckily, “The Wrong Direction” is going in the right direction this week as Passenger advances 3-1, meaning his first three singles have all hit the top. A handful of acts have scored three number one singles on my top 40 in any given twelve month period, but the singer-songwriter is only one of two to score the three within one chart year (the other being the Backstreet Boys in 2001) and the quickest to do so overall at just past six months since “Let Her Go” first reached #1 on the May 12 chart. His followup album to All The Little Lights is due in the spring of 2014; stay tuned to see if Mr. Rosenberg can pull off four in a row next year.
  • Three songs are tied for the Biggest Mover this week: Bastille rise 21-15 with “Of The Night” as the band pulls off a three-song block on the chart with “Laura Palmer” at #16 and “Pompeii” at #17. This has only occurred one other time in 2004, when Maroon 5 took over positions 24-22 with “Sunday Morning”, “Pure Imagination” and “She Will Be Loved”. Gary Barlow is up 30-24 with “Let Me Go”, which will officially debut in the top 5 in the United Kingdom today. Finally, there’s Kelly Clarkson, who takes a jump from 35-29 with “Underneath The Tree”. It marks the highest peaking Christmas-themed song on my top 40 since the year 2000.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the fourth charting single for singer-songwriter Christina Perri, “Human”, new at #38. It was produced and co-written by Martin Johnson, also behind this week’s #9 song, “Waiting For Superman” by Daughtry. (View the premiere post from last week.)
  • Produced by Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, Colbie Caillat‘s latest single is “Hold On”, in this week at #39. It’s Caillat’s eleventh single to make my chart, her biggest being “Realize”, which spent five weeks at #1 in 2008. Her most recent release prior to this, a duet with Gavin DeGraw called “We Both Know”, made the top 20 earlier this year. (View the premiere post from earlier this week.)
  • Lastly, down at #40, is the only new act to debut on the chart this week. Trio Basic Vacation enter with their first single, “I Believe”, featured on their recently released self-titled EP. It’s currently gaining airplay at the Alternative format, where it ranks in the top 50. (Read my profile on them published last month.)
  • This marks the last chart of my 2013 Chart Year, which began in December 2012. Thanks for all the love this year once again and stay tuned for my Top 100 of 2013 coming soon!
