Chart Notes:

  • “Of The Night” takes a few more nights and a second week at #1 for Bastille and their hit mash-up of “Rhythm Is A Dancer” by Snap! and “The Rhythm Of The Night” by Corona. As far as the national charts are concerned, the biggest mash-up or medley to rank on the Hot 100 was in 1969 when The 5th Dimension spent six weeks at #1 with a mix of “Aquarius” and “Let The Sunshine In” from the musical Hair. “Night” has yet to be available here, but it will be starting on Tuesday when All This Bad Blood sees a digital release.
  • Four songs move into the top 20 this week: John Newman rises from 24-20 with “Losing Sleep”, which becomes his second highest-ranking song behind “Cheating” (#18). Grouplove takes a jump of 23-18 with “Shark Attack”, moving five spots closer to their third top ten hit. Finally, there’s Karmin, up 22-16 with “I Want It All”, which seems to draw a bit of inspiration from the duo Nu Shooz. All three have top ten potential in the next few weeks.
  • The Biggest Mover of the Week is from Delta Rae with “Chasing Twisters”. After debuting last week at #40, it’s up seven spots to #33. The six-piece band returns to the road in February and continues on a trek around the U.S. through April.
  • Instantly impacting the chart after being officially released on Friday (I first heard it on Thursday), Utah quartet Neon Trees enter at #39 with this week’s Highest Debut, “Sleeping With A Friend”. It’s their sixth entry, with “Animal” remaining their biggest of the pack, a #1 for four weeks in 2010. “Sleeping” is the lead release from Pop Psychology, due April 22.
  • The other debut at #40 this week is by newcomer Max Frost and “White Lies”. You’ve likely been hearing the song in a Beats By Dre commercial, which is still airing. Frost’s five-song EP, Low High Low, was released back in October.
