Part 1: http://www.australian-charts.com/forum.asp?todo=viewthread&id=45245

For the uninformed, this chart is where I take a snapshot of the iTunes chart every Sunday afternoon and document the 100 highest selling songs that were released at least 2 years ago.

Oct 9th

The new year of charts comes with a new #1 for...I'm not sure what reason but I'll guess it was possibly X Factor since that's all over this week's chart. So congrats to Passenger's "Let Her Go" which reaches to top in its 50th week. He keeps WALK THE MOON at bay as they return to #2. As I mention X Factor, I believe it's responsible for 3 big debuts in the top 10, with U2 getting only their 2nd ever entry with "All I Want Is You", while it's the first time in for London Grammar and Paloma Faith, with perhaps not the most expected choices in "Wasting My Young Years" and "Can't Rely On You". Possibly through association, London Grammar also come through with "Strong" lower down. Sam Smith bolts into the top 10 for the first time with "Stay With Me", which is also joined by a debut from "I'm Not The Only One". Staying in pairs, we have 2 debuts from Beyonce's 4th & 5th albums, I'm not sure why. We also see Hillsong United's huge smash "Oceans", and Lil' Mo's minor 2003 hit "4Ever". Christina Aguilera's "The Voice Within" has been on ads for X Factor and comes in at #71. And despite being a constant presence in the Spotify top 200, Gnarls Barkley only just now debut with "Crazy". Also big news this week is that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis drop out of the chart for the first time ever with "Can't Hold Us".

Thanks Hijinx. Also enjoying the stats
Oct 16th

It seems the chart has gone into amnesty mode of late. For a 3rd week in a row, we have a high charter finally gaining a #1 peak, with this week belonging to John Legend, perhaps thanks to him having a new hit on the chart. Right behind him is another big new peak, going to Cold Chisel who didn't put in any work to achieve it, as it's almost certainly due to Jessica Mauboy's cover for The Secret Daughter, which sees "Flame Trees" with a huge jump to #2, outpeaking "Khe Sanh", which is typically ahead of it 90% of the time. 2 weeks after a rare chart dropout, Ginuwine continues to impress with "Pony" back in the top 10, which prevents Avicii from getting there, though "Wake Me Up" does score a new peak of #11. Michael Andrews' version of "Mad World" had a huge midweek jump though by the time we get to Sunday, it can *only* manage a #16 debut here. Hilltop Hoods have a good week with "Cosby Sweater" now attaining a strong peak of #22 alongside "The Nosebleed Section" re-entering. Speaking of re-entering, we have some faces not seen in a long time, namely "Gangnam Style", "Wicked Game", "Pumped Up Kicks" and "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)". There are only 2 other debuts after "Mad World", both coming from Kings Of Leon on the back of their 7th album's release week.

Oct 23rd

We had potential for another long runner amnesty with Jess Mauboy's cover of Ed Sheeran's "Photograph" giving it a bit of a boost, but it's way behind the top spot because the big news of the week appears to be hype for the final Wolverine movie, with the trailer presumably prominently featuring Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt", which in the past has popped up here, but now it's sitting top 40 on iTunes and able to take the top spot here. I sincerely hope ARIA can just let it chart finally. Avicii continues to climb with "Wake Me Up" now reaching the top 10, while presumably Battlefield 1 ads have brought "Seven Nation Army" back in the chart yet again, just slightly getting a new peak of #12. Beyonce's "Single Ladies" reaches the top 20 for the first time ever, stopping "Cosby Sweater" from doing the same, though it does get a new peak anyway. Same case with Bruno Mars' "Marry You" just behind it, and it's a good week for Bruno with "When I Was Your Man" debuting as well. I can't believe I'm typing this, but thanks to Violent Soho covering it on Like A Version this week, one of my all time favourite bands, Silversun Pickups actually have the top debut this week with their biggest hit "Lazy Eye". Just a little lower is The Whitlams' "No Aphrodisiac", which I believe is the 10th Hottest 100 #1 to reach this chart (or 11th if you include Nirvana), sadly "Buy Me A Pony" and "Knights Of Cydonia" have never been even in the top 1500 whenever I've recorded it (even "Asshole" has done it!) so I don't have much hope to complete the set. But of that set, it's also worth noting that Gotye has a new peak this week. There's a long overdue debut for Blue Swede who presumably would have a huge run if I'd started this chart sooner. '90s Brit Pop finally has representation that isn't "Wonderwall", with both "Don't Look Back In Anger" and "Bitter Sweet Symphony" debuting. We can check off two more #1 singles as "I Try" and "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" get in for the first time. For the second week in a row, we have a Tears For Fears cover debuting, this time Lorde's "Everybody Wants To Rule The World". People can finally buy "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" so that debuts, and lastly we have the latest victim of liltwave, as the original "Return Of The Mack" sneaks in, which happens just as Tracy Chapman finally overtakes Jonas Blue, whose "Fast Car" would be #19 this week if it were eligible.

It's up to the record company, Sony for Johnny Cash I believe, to allow a song to chart, not ARIA.

Thank you for making this chart by the way. Really enjoy reading your analysis.
Hear hear on I_E's comment

Btw, The Whitlams, Oasis and The Verve were almost certainly all because of Rockwiz on Saturday night, as they had a '90s special, which was heavy on the Britpop.

Blue Swede, I assume, is because of the GOTG2 trailer being released, apparently a less interesting trailer than Wolverine, but whatevs...

Surely TMTC must end its run soon, pls, would love to trim some of those 55-weekers now
Oct 30th

It's time for the annual SPOOKTACULAR chart edition, and what better way to represent it than..."The Horses"? I suppose there are 4 horsemen of the apocalypse. Anyway, due to the leap year, we skip over Halloween and will get gradually further away from it in successive years so I'll just be happy to see "Thriller", "Monster Mash" and "Time Warp" get in at all. Interestingly, they enter in the opposite order they did to last year. Despite already being on the chart, "Ghostbusters" remains behind all 3 of them. The top of the chart is mostly business as usual as the regulars continue to tussle for new peaks though none of them get it. The #1 position may be anyone's game for now, but 2 weeks from now there'll be a new major contender, one that has been the de facto #1 most weeks of late. The top debut of the week comes from Empire of the Sun on the back of their 3rd album release, with most attention drawing back to "Walking On A Dream", though "Alive" also re-enters. Lady Gaga didn't manage to enter with anything last week when her album was out, but now the Carpool Karaoke segment has done the trick as she enters this chart for the first time ever, with several of her past hits, perhaps surprisingly it's "Born This Way" that gets the highest. Some new peaks of note includes Guy Sebastian's "Battle Scars" which re-enters in strong fashion, but trumped by John Farnham's "You're The Voice", which after so many weeks unable to even crack the top 50, finds itself all the way up to #20. Local Oasis tribute act DMA's did Like A Version on Friday and the lads did a cover of Cher's "Believe" which appears here for the first time, alongside their original choon "Delete". Though other tracks from The Secret Daughter are slipping, Crowded House get a debut with "Better Be Home Soon" this week, as does Unique II's "Break My Stride" for some reason, which sadly stops "Return Of The Mack" from being next to the return of the Mack...lemore. And naturally due to QLVG hype [citation needed], ABBA get their first ever entry with "Dancing Queen". Queen's "We Will Rock You" drops out for only the 2nd time ever, though the first one was when Prince took total control of the chart so this is perhaps more noteworthy.

For the record, today's chart is typed up, and I'll post it tomorrow after my exam, reasonably big news this week
I wait with baited breath
Nov 6th

As has been the case for several months now, "Chasing Cars" is still discounted on iTunes, but it has slipped on this chart lately. Things turn around as it's featured on the frontpage now for the Great $1.19 Songs section and it roars back to #1 here. It perhaps helps that it's the only 'old' song that's on display without scrolling. Also featured on there are "Bust A Move", "Copperhead Road" and "Gangsta's Paradise" which re-enter, and "Cosby Sweater" which bolts up to a new peak of #13. Incidentally its partner in release week "Freaks" has a huge jump into the top 10 this week. Incidentally, Snow Patrol's jump to #1 prevents the 3 next songs from attaining a new peak, and things might get tougher for those songs as a BIG contender will be entering the charts next week. There's a big jump for "Fast Car" which puts it again ahead of Jonas Blue. Birds of Tokyo have a new album out this week, and that might be helping "Lanterns" re-enter but I also heard it on an ad this past week so maybe it'll hang around a bit longer. '70s glam rockers Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel have the highest debut. Next debut comes from Alicia Keys who has an album out this week, and her version of "Empire State Of Mind" debuts before the original can. We're still 10 months away from another version of the song potentially debuting, but now we get the RocKwiz version of "The Sound Of Silence" by Emma Louise & Husky. With the Vengaboys touring here, "We Like To Party!" re-enters and "Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!" debuts. John Lennon's "Imagine" re-enters on the anniversary of the French attacks which sent it to #1 on this chart last year, and on a happier note, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" begins its annual ascent. Two weeks after "Bitter Sweet Symphony", The Verve enter a little higher with another track on the same album, a fair bit higher. Something I was expecting to be a story of a week ago was the 2 year anniversary of Taylor Swift's "1989" album...but nothing debuted, even though several tracks from the album have popped up around the heights of the chart. I'd have expected "Wildest Dreams" to get in first, but instead, "Blank Space" debuts here. 6 of the highest selling songs of all time were released in 2011, and now the 4th of those (we're still waiting on LMFAO) just barely sneaks in with "Moves Like Jagger". This also is partially responsible for Hozier finally dropping out with "Take Me To Church", which is #106 this week.

Also finishing off the Stats thread this week <3

Yay for Chasing Cars, and for the whole top three!
Nov 13th

As you probably know, 2 days ago it was announced that legendary songwriter Leonard Cohen passed away. As tends to be the case, the market responds accordingly, so his work dominates the top end of this chart. Of particular note is his most famous song "Hallelujah", which naturally goes to the top of this chart, but it's also accompanied by the many other famous recordings of the song that have come along. Most notably Jeff Buckley's recording, but the top 200 on iTunes also included a live version by Leonard Cohen, both the version that k.d. lang recorded for her 2004 album, and the one she recorded for the 2010 Winter Olympics, the Rufus Wainwright version most people heard through "Shrek", and also the recent Pentatonix cover which of course is not on this chart. That's not all he has to show here though, as another 5 of his songs also debut here. This has all overshadowed what looked to otherwise be the big news of the week, as we celebrate the 2nd birthday of "Uptown Funk", which has been surpassing the #1 on this chart nearly every week, but because of the unfortunate timing, can only debut at #5. Even though last year's chart was right on the dot of Rememberance Day, Redgum did not re-enter in November, but this time they do so with a new peak of #11. Maroon 5 also significantly improve their peak with "She Will Be Loved". Last week Alicia Keys' solo version of "Empire State Of Mind" debuted, which made sense as her new album had just been released. This week it drops out and it replaced by the original version. Similarly, "Blank Space" drops out this week, to be replaced by "Wildest Dreams". The only other debuts of the week are songs that you'd perhaps think are too forgotten to make it in here, but nonetheless we have a debut for Jagged Edge's big 2001 hit "Let's Get Married", and thanks to that same discount promotion that is aiding "Chasing Cars", we have a debut for B.Z. & Joanne's version of "Jackie", which some aus-charts members might be amused to know is sitting right next to Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know". Also the influx of Leonard Cohen puts a strain on the chartsitters, so "Titanium" is at its lowest position ever, and "Someone Like You" drops out for the first time ever (though it took a few weeks to debut unlike "Rolling In The Deep" which has appeared on every chart).

I believe Joanne (but not B.Z. ) was also touring with the Vengaboys this week which would have helped Jackie.
lol maybe that's why it's finally on iTunes & Spotify after all these years, and perhaps there's built up demand for it
Possibly Leonard Cohen's first ever number 1 on a singles chart.
Nov 20th

It's a jam packed week but I have to start with some tedious housekeeping first. In 2011, the band Marconi Union recorded the song "Weightless", an 8 minute ambient track which has become famous in psychological studies as being the most relaxing song of all time. It sells reasonably well too, but I've previously overlooked it for whatever reason. It's only sold enough to appear here a few times, but the first time it did, it was enough to be #1, back in July. So it retroactively takes over the week "Wuthering Heights" was #1, which affects a whole bunch of chart figures. It was also #54 in 24/10/2016, and #27 in 31/10/2016, as well as re-entering this week. So a lot of songs have lost their old peaks, too many to mention, but the key ones of note are "It Wasn't Me", and "Nothing Else Matters", both bumped down 1 spot. "Timber", and "It Wasn't Me" also were both #100 on weeks that "Weightless" should have appeared, so they both lose a week on their tally. In addition to those two, "Moves Like Jagger" debuted at #100 on the most recent week, meaning that it no longer counts as an entry on this chart. As with the previous instance, I won't edit the posts because it will take too long, but all future charts & stats will reflect this correction.

Moving onto this week's chart, it was a competitive battle for the top, but after trailing for most of the week, "Uptown Funk" has luck on its side as it claimed the top spot only this morning. Think of it as an early hatchet burying, as unlike a lot of long runners, "Uptown Funk", has the #1 peak all sewn up already. Speaking of those long runners, we've recently had another one of those Adele TV concerts just in time to bump "25" back up the charts, and of course, her catalogue of hits back up this chart. Leading the chart for most of this week was actually Bonnie Tyler for reasons I'm not sure of, so "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" has a huge improvement from its old #100 peak. There's even more noteworthy peak improvements this week too, as a viral performance of "Enter Sandman" as well as the release of Metallica's latest album sends "Enter Sandman" all the way up to #6, perhaps catharsis for "Nothing Else Matters"' peak dropping. Metallica also get their 3rd ever entry here, another from The Black Album as "The Unforgiven" sneaks in. Nelly's on tour here and has a big influx, notably "Ride Wit Me" getting a new peak of #7, and a debut for 2010 hit "Just A Dream". Same goes for TLC who have a huge week with "No Scrubs" and "Waterfalls" gaining new peaks, and "Unpretty" debuting. It's also in general a great week for early 2000s nostalgia, with debuts from the likes of Blu Cantrell, Mya & Dante Thomas. Darude's "Sandstorm" would've been a huge hit on here a couple of years ago, but only belatedly gets a debut this week. Because we can never have enough Eminem songs on this chart, this week saw the 20th anniversary of his debut album, which has resulted in the title track getting a belated iTunes release, and a debut here. Continuing from last week, "Titanium" again sees a new low, perhaps the incoming influx of Christmas songs could see it out?

Nov 27th

A very close battle today with the top two right next to each other on iTunes. Perhaps it's appropriate that the incumbent loses out to what has been the dominant force this week. With Crowded House being inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame, and today playing their first show in 20 years, all eyes are on them and "Better Be Home Soon", which recently debuted thanks to The Secret Daughter, goes all the way to the top this week. Mark Ronson takes solace that he already has #1, and he might have to wait a while to get there again because Mariah Carey is just about ready to take her annual residence. There's plenty more Crowded House to be seen, notably "Don't Dream It's Over" and "Fall At Your Feet" both making the top 10. It's also good in general for Australian artists, John Farnham gets a top 10 peak at last for "You're The Voice", and thanks to A.B. Original's excellent Like A Version featuring the man himself, Paul Kelly's "Dumb Things" has a debut, with "To Her Door" not far behind it. There's a debut for former contemporary Christian musician turned Gilmore Girls composer Sam Phillips, and also one for Joni Mitchell. By sheer fluke, David Guetta's "Hey Mama" which hasn't been seen high on the chart for weeks, comes back just high enough on the first week it became eligible, and so here it is. Maroon 5 also amusingly debut with "Moves Like Jagger" a week after they were ruled out of the chart by Marconi Union.

Dec 4th

It's December so welcome to the perpetual reign of Mariah Carey. This starts 5 days later than last year which might be down to timing of the week or just competition. With the rest of the Christmas song not quite in full gear yet and not any competition elsewhere, a lot of usual hits here climb back up, with most notoriety going to Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, who reaches the top 10 for the first time in 58 weeks on the chart! What can be noted with Christmas entries this week is that there's a hint of fresher songs slipping in this year. Despite not getting in last year, we've already got entries from Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber, while Pentatonix's Christmas track from 2 years ago gets its first time to get in. The two longest song titles in the chart this week are both re-entries right next to each other, with Fall Out Boy getting a new peak too. Christmas also brings The Wiggles into the chart for the first time ever. Among the week's dropouts is "Titanium" for the first time.

The Sweet debut is ace!
Is it in a trailer or something?
Yep, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2
Nice to see Somewhere Only We Know debut in the Top 5. Anyone knows why?
Dec 11th

For those not keeping score, this is "All I Want For Christmas Is You"'s 5th week at #1 all up. Her perpetual high performance goes some way to overshadow what would overwise be complete dominance this week. Rest assured Chris Martin is alive and well, but Coldplay are currently touring here and the market has responded in tremendous fashion with nearly every Coldplay single you can think of (that's eligible) making an appearance, many of which are in the top 10. Incidentally it's their two best performers here, "A Sky Full Of Stars" and "Fix You" that can only match former peaks, but every other one of their tracks here is hitting a new peak. Christmas festivities continue to populate the chart, this week it's the more vintage tracks taking prominence over contemporary entries, Brenda Lee even gets an early new peak. Though overshadowed somewhat here by Coldplay, Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood's Australian tour is also well received here, with "Somebody Like You" and "Before He Cheats" taking big peak improvement, while Keith has a couple more debuts from his back catalogue to boot. iTunes seems to have taken away the Great $1.19 Tracks section, so even though both are still discounted, "Cosby Sweater" and "Chasing Cars" take big drops, the latter just narrowly missing the chart.

Firework incoming #1
I often wonder if it really should be on the chart nearly every week; sales are always split between two versions
Coldplay
Dec 18th

If you haven't seen, Mariah Carey is now top 10 on iTunes, so shockingly she holds here. This week's recipient of absurdly high but not high enough is "Uptown Funk" which is challenging for top 50 on sales this week. This is largely because of Bruno Mars being the latest in the viral Carpool Challenge which sees the chart flooded with hits of old, some familiar to this chart, some fresh. "Locked Out Of Heaven" does the best to land at #3, while the follow up single "When I Was Your Man" is incidentally next at #12. It's roughly 6 years since Bruno was #1 on the charts with "Grenade" which sees a debut here, as does "Treasure". We're mostly taken over by Christmas songs moreso, and some like Mariah's "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", and Pentatonix's "Little Drummer Boy" hit new peaks this week. John Legend picks up his 3rd ever entry with a rendition of "Winter Wonderland", while the only other debut is Seal's "Kiss From A Rose", which was used quite prominently in triple j's Musical Massacre for the breakfast team's send off. Darude's "Sandstorm" narrowly missed out.

Chart is a little late just because well, it was Christmas. Rest assured for accuracy's sake, I did record it on time yesterday, as perhaps should be evident by the biggest influx of Christmas tunes yet. Mariah #1 is a no-brainer, but we've got new peaks all over the place, John Lennon at #2 & Wham! at #3 for the big hitters. It's also an above average performance this year for Brenda Lee, The Pogues & Paul Kelly who reach the top 10 for the first time. The rest of the new peaks for Christmas songs are too plentiful to mention. Plenty of debuts too and a real mixed bag of them. We've got some oldies like Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, some recent ones from Coldplay, Dropkick Murphys, Band Aid 30 and Michael Buble, and some people having a laugh as we get a debut for Kevin Bloody Wilson, and also two tracks from Love Actually. But Christmas Day is also known in some chart watching circles as gift card day, as a predominantly younger audience takes over the chart and changes up the guard a bit. Eminem performs well as he does every year, while Taylor Swift & Panic! At The Disco are able to get some new peaks. Some big hitters like "All Of Me" and "The Horses" are at what I believe are all time lows, and some 60+ week runners drop out too.

The Christmas songs will mostly plummet this week. However, reports are that Last Christmas is continuing to sell well after Christmas due to the death of George Michael. His other songs together with Wake Me Up Before you go-go are charting as well. [

Jan 1st

Apologies for making you wait for what is one of the wildest charts we've ever seen, by one metric it is the wildest because we've only got 32 songs here that were on last week's chart! The big news of the week of course was George Michael's passing, which unfortunately for the sake of this chart, happened the day after last week's chart was posted, so what we get is potentially the bare minimum impact, though he's still quite soundly locked the #1 position with "Faith". It along with "Careless Whisper" were his only solo entries on this chart prior to this week, though the latter narrowly misses out behind "Freedom '90" this week. Filling out the top 6 are the other two tracks to re-enter the ARIA Chart this week, "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" and "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me". His Aretha Franklin duet and #1 hit "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)" also manages to get into the top 10. The circumstances also mean that "Last Christmas" is the sole surviving Christmas song from last week, with "All I Want For Christmas" still doing reasonably well to be in the 400s on iTunes. Also re-entering in the top 10 is London Grammar's "Strong" off the back of their recent touring and newly released song. Other than that, we get to see all the different ways that people are choosing to see out 2016. One way would seem to be the song "Auld Lang Syne", which if you don't know why, fortunately Mariah Carey explains it in parentheses on her version. Eventual #1 "Firework" gets a new peak because people think of fireworks on new years, while various other 'party' tracks are amongst the re-entries. It also seems to be a week of reflection, as we see the return of tracks from the also 2016 departed Prince & David Bowie. On the other hand, Avicii fans clearly just want someone to wake them up when it's all over. I also want to point out two things, namely that #50 on this chart is #200 on iTunes, though normally #200 on iTunes is around the #28 mark on this chart, and also that "Ice Ice Baby" is slightly outselling "Under Pressure" and I'm very ashamed at you all.

Once again I've been busy with stuff but I made sure to have the chart typed up on time as usual

Jan 8th

"Uptown Funk" has been the de facto #1 since it was released, except between Leonard Cohen, Christmas & George Michael, it's only now managing its 2nd week at #1 after 9 weeks on the chart. It does have a challenger now though in the form of its late 2014 rival "Thinking Out Loud" which reaches a new peak this week off the back of Ed Sheeran releasing new music, so now it has the same peak as "Photograph". Suffice to say it's a good week to be Ed Sheeran here, his older hits have disappeared from this chart pretty much around the same time the new ones came along, but now they're all back. The more recent "Don't" also gets its debut this week. Apart from that, this is probably the closest thing we've had to a 'normal' week in a while, so the top 10 is mostly filled by the more recent canon, this is good news for Elle King who is able to improve her peak from #5 to #3. Besides those 2 mentioned, the only other new peak this week is for Darude's "Sandstorm", which re-enters 1 place higher than its first charting week. Ed Sheeran isn't the only artist to potentially benefit from big hits, as Train have a big re-entry with "Drops Of Jupiter", and Taylor Swift gets another debut from her "1989" album with the original version of "Bad Blood". We also have a battle raging on for the first 2015 song to reach the chart, between a freakishly persevering viral dance song, and a seemingly forgotten Australian hit, both of which are a small handful of weeks from eligibility.

Well, perhaps the "seemingly forgotten Australian hit" from 2015 is not that forgotten if it has a chance to debut in the next few weeks lol.
I'll need to check my archives but I think this week was the first time in ages that I saw it in the top 350, so the perception was somewhat warranted
Jan 15th

Another week, another me being busy with EOY things and so this was typed up yesterday Anyway, perhaps in preparation for Australia Day, we have Daryl riding with the horses back to #1. There's not much else to note in the top 10 this week though there is a big debut from the 2007 film "Music and Lyrics". It would seem also that iTunes is re-promoting its hot $1.19 tracks, as Snow Patrol charge back into the chart and "Cosby Sweater" nearly gets a new peak as well. Being on an ad keeps paying Richard Marx dividends as "Right Here Waiting" climbs to #13, and fortunately the much better "Hazard" also gets to debut. We have some core '90s debuts from Haddaway and New Radicals. Lastly, "Right Round" debuts for some reason, so scratch off another #1 hit on your bingo card. This week though is all about the new peaks. Darius Rucker has a huge improvement to #28 with "Wagon Wheel", while re-entries from Eminem, Paul McCartney, Lifehouse, Neil Diamond and Toto all see new heights. Congratulations to "Chicken Fried", as though Zac Brown Band have never made the Australian singles chart, they've now charted here for 52 weeks. We also have a big dropout as AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" leaves the chart for the first time, despite a couple of their other songs still being in this week.

Jan 22nd

I'm going to post this on time for once! It was an extremely close battle for the top this week too, with the top 3 within 5 places of each other. Completionists who'd like to see a week with the entire chart having peaked at #1 will be delighted that "Thinking Out Loud" has fixed up its #2 peak to a #1. I actually have no idea why but a lot of his tracks are back to being as high as they were two weeks ago. Top 10 otherwise is mostly regular business, though I will note a rare case of "Someone Like You" being ahead of "Rolling In The Deep", and we also have a big re-entry for Vanessa Williams' "Save The Best For Last". Speaking of which, amongst this week's debuts are many #1 hits, many of which are dire...I'm looking at you Charlene who bizarrely has 3 versions of the song high enough to chart! There's also Train, Aqua & Puff Daddy, while Kasey Chambers' new album has a lot of her songs boosted, with the relevant party here being "Not Pretty Enough". Other debuts include the first ever Backstreet Boys track to feature here, "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)", while Kanye West picks up another entry in "POWER". GANGgajang also return at the same time they did last year with Australia Day on the way. Perhaps the most exciting news is that we have songs from 2015 in this chart for the first time, and it's actually a 3 way tie. Just missing out on that distinction is the bizarre choice of I Prevail's 'Punk Goes Pop' cover of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space", which is from December 2014, but we have a collection of January 2015 representatives, two of them #1 hits from Ellie Goulding & Meghan Trainor, the latter benefitting from being a later released single from the album, while against all known logic, there's also Silento, but you already knew who it was.

Huzzah! Ed gets there finally! Now for Walk Thr Moon.
Ed Sheeran is number one on the singles chart and the catalogue albums chart as well.
Jan 29th

Normally I'd groan at it, but this week I'll more than allow it. Shout out to the legend himself Ben Lawson who should be most pleased to see that we have the #1 it shoulda been on Australia Day. Given that "The Horses" was already riding high, it's hard to know if he's solely responsible. Either way, I'm sure we can all agree that it's fitting. It's another week of regular suspects filling out the top 10, though Australia Day festivities do see Men At Work reach another new peak all the way up to #9, while it would seem that an airing of the 2011 film "Footloose" has brought Kenny Loggins back into the chart in a big way, and it's worth noting that "Footloose" has matched his other big soundtrack hit "Danger Zone" with the same peak of #6. That film also sees debuts from Big & Rich and Blake Shelton. New peaks abound elsewhere in the chart, Mr. Big re-entering at a new high of #15, Darius Rucker soars into the top 20 with "Wagon Wheel", Panic! At The Disco's very on/off "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" gets a little closer to top 50 glory, and let's hear it for Deniece Williams re-entering at a new high of #21. Australia Day also brings in Australian Crawl's "The Boys Light Up", while the rest of the debuts are perhaps associated with triple j. Most blatantly so, we have Massive Attack's "Teardrop", courtesy of AURORA performing a cover for Like A Version on Friday, while the Hottest 100 results have brought a spark in interest for a lot of artists' catalogues, mostly recent, but it just so happens that one of Amy Shark's few released singles is actually from 2014, so "Spits On Girls" is a debut. Plenty of Hottest 100 alumni re-enter this week, such as Peking Duk, Vance Joy, Gotye, Rage Against The Machine and Flume, while the last debut also falls under that category, with Bag Raiders' "Shooting Stars" at #28.

Just some housecleaning first, I missed a debut last week, LANY's "ILYSB" has been around since 2014 and for some reason is being pushed as a new hit now in 2017, so it debuted last week and continues to chart this week. I've fixed last week's chart but not the commentary so apologies if there's anything that looks wrong in it now. This week we have the same batch continuing to play musical chairs at the top. The Ed Sheeran rebounds choose not to be remotely consistent and they're all up this week again. Meanwhile re-entering at #5 is Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know", which just happens to be the same position it charted at last time. Marconi Union are also back with their sporadic appearances, way up at #10 this time. New to the top 10 this week though is Bruce Springsteen's "I'm On Fire", reaching a new peak in its 10th week charting as The Boss is touring in Australia currently, and making headlines for things that he said during those shows. All of his stuff is up this week, with "Dancing In The Dark" at a new peak of #11, and debuts for classics like "Born In The U.S.A." and "Born To Run", but also for some reason, a bonus track from his 2012 album in "American Land" sneaking in. Some long charters get new peaks this week, with "Stolen Dance" up to #16 and "Drops Of Jupiter" up to #19, while "Smells Like Teen Spirit" returns to the chart for the first time this year, in a big way at a new peak of #21. Panic! At The Disco also continue their ascent with "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" now up to #29, and Ellie Goulding's recent entry gets some strong momentum up to #30. Though all the Ed Sheeran tracks are up, the only new peak in the bunch is "Don't" at #38. Other debuts this week include War's classic rock staple "Low Rider", and the original poorly written song that uses 'beautiful' as a noun from Labrinth. There's also a debut at #73 from Mark Wills, a country artist I don't think I've ever heard of.

Gosh it's been hectic with this. We've been having about 40 dropouts a week all year, and this week there are no less than 15 debuts on the chart. Many of them come from the same band. Currently on tour, the chart this week pays big dividends to Guns N' Roses, who take the top spot with chart regular "Sweet Child O' Mine", which is now the slowest climb ever to the top spot having charted for 67 out of 71 weeks. Alongside that, other popular hits "November Rain", "Paradise City" and "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" all occupy the top 10 for the first time, "Patience" only unable to make the cut because there were already too many GNR tracks. And that's just the re-entries from around when the tour was announced, we go to slightly deeper cuts for the debuts, notably "Welcome To The Jungle", "Live and Let Die", "Don't Cry", "Estranged" and "You Could Be Mine". Debuting in the top 10 is the fiddle-tastic "The Devil Went Down To Georgia", perhaps thanks to this viral video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1hnBv12-uk If you need more memes, then Bag Raiders' re-enter with "Shooting Stars", which I since discovered is the subject of many meme videos. On the Ed Sheeran report, it's mostly positive for him again this week, aside from "The A Team" taking a bit of a tumble. He adds another entry to the list though as his first #1 hit "Sing" debuts at long last. Also in with a good week is Lady Gaga, whose Superbowl performance effect lingers here nearly a week after the fact. "Born This Way" is the highest and gets a new peak in the process, "Bad Romance" and "Poker Face" are not far behind but can't quite improve their peaks. She also debuts with some song I've never heard called "Just Dance". On the topic of #1 hits though, Ellie Goulding continues to improve with "Love Me Like You Do", as the iTunes chart in general is just filled with tracks from the new Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack. Alongside Ellie, The Weeknd now makes his debut to the chart with "Earned It (Fifty Shades Of Grey)". His big 2015 hits "The Hills" and "Can't Feel My Face" are often still selling well so see later this year if they can get in. Keep ticking off those ARIA #1s as we get another debutant with The B-52's "Love Shack". Also though his effect was strongest last week, Bruce Springsteen oddly debuts with "Streets Of Philadelphia" this week. Sticking to the classic '90s, we also have debuts for Edwyn Collins and...B*Witched. Lastly sneaking in for the first time ever is Pink Floyd, with their classic "Wish You Were Here".

Where is the update
Need it for a playlist
I typed the whole chart up on Sunday, just haven't had the spare time to type the commentary, I'll either have it done tonight or tomorrow morning
Feb 19th

Apologies for the delay. This might be the closest thing we've had to a settled down week in some time. For the time being, "Thinking Out Loud" re-assumes its role as the default #1 as Guns N' Roses don't quite have the strength to maintain for another week. They still do reasonably well with mostly only minor drops across the board. It's a good week for Sheeran too, with mostly rebounds, which include new peaks for "Don't", "Give Me Love" and "Sing". Having emerged in the middle of the chart recently, Bag Raiders' "Shooting Stars" is now in full force as it jolts all the way up to #3. If it maintains this momentum, a top 2 finish next week is very possible. There's a big re-entry for Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car", which I'm obliged to mention sits it far ahead of Jonas Blue on iTunes, in recent weeks she'ss been slightly behind him. Also re-entering in the top 10 is Midnight Oil's "Beds Are Burning", off the back of Midnight Oil's recent tour announcement. Alongside it are lower debuts for "Power and the Passion" and "Blue Sky Mine", and if that's not enough classic Aus rock to satiate, there's a debut for Mental As Anything's #2 hit "Live It Up" at #22. Apart from all this, there's not much of note this week, with the chart mostly filled with regulars, and a particularly high concentration of Eminem. We have re-entering new peaks for Bill Medley & Dire Straits, while Skrillex continues to ride the bizarre soundtrack choice for a car commercial and "Bangarang" gets a slight new peak. Speaking of car commercials, apparently Dio's "Holy Diver" is also being used on one, and is the final debut for this week. Potentially watch out for some new blood on the chart in the coming weeks, with two huge Hottest 100 hits and a YouTube juggernaut all coming up on their 2nd birthdays next month.

Did the man who invented iTunes go to iTunes? Think about it. It might be more interesting than reading what I have to admit is one of the least eventful charts I've ever posted. Well there is a little bit going on, the most noteworthy of which is the new #1 this week. It appears to be decreed that Ed Sheeran can only be #1 every second week because he's been bumped off by the slimmest of margins thanks to iTunes promoting a 'new' song that actually came out years ago. We perhaps have another "Mama Said" on our hands via LANY's "ILYSB" but that comparison isn't fair because this isn't terrible. The real unlucky party in this is "Shooting Stars" which was #1 all the way up until Saturday and thus can only hold its #3 position from last week. Apart from LANY, the new peaks this week are few and far between. Linkin Park's songs swap order and thus "Numb" climbs to a new peak, and thanks to Lana Del Rey telling us about being young and in love, we've gone back to remember when she was young and beautiful, and given that a slight new peak ahead of its initial debut, that's it. I will also note that most Sheeran is down this week though "I See Fire" gets a climb. I am expecting a heck of a splash next week when the album is out. We also see a bit of a changing of the guard for AC/DC this week, with their lengthier titled songs re-entering and "Thunderstruck" falling out for only the second time. As I was typing this up I was wondering if we might have a week without debuts, and we got close as they didn't start showing up until the 70s. We get an '80s pairing with "Hungry Eyes" and "True Colors", and lastly there's the only good new rapper, as Hopsin continues to jack Eminem's old flows and shock tactics in his "Ill Mind Of Hopsin" series.

Mar 5th

Firstly some annoying housekeeping. I have discovered today that I overlooked Sean Rowe's "To Leave Something Behind". It's featured in The Accountant and has been selling well for a few weeks. There's too much stuff to fix in the thread posts so I'll just note that it debuted at #96 on Nov 11th, dropped out and then re-entered all the way up at #4 two weeks ago. It was #18 last week and #22 this week. As usual, I have fixed up stats for all associated songs for all charts from today onwards.

Now for the actually relevant news of the week, people have just this week discovered Adele. It became an interesting battle in the later part of the week when it became apparent that Adele would certainly be #1, but which song gets it was not as clear. It was going back and forth between her two biggest hits but come crunch time I can announce that "Rolling In The Deep" has at long last reached #1. This is one of the small handful of songs that have charted every single week since the chart has started, and thus Guns N' Roses' record is broken very quickly. It also means that Adele is the first artist to ever score a 3rd #1 hit, overtaking Evanescence & Eminem. Also it should be clear that this is very much Adele's week, to the point that she has the entire top 5 locked up. Apart from "Someone Like You", all of them are new peaks. All up, she has 12 songs on the chart this week. This includes debuts for "Don't You Remember", "One and Only" and "I'll Be Waiting", which means that there are only 3 tracks on "21" that AREN'T charting this week. Because of all this, it's easy to forget that Ed Sheeran put out a new album, though perhaps months of strong sales here have worn out come album release week as he has a rather middling week. In the world of new peaks, this week we have Skrillex making a big jump to #21 with "Bangarang", while much beloved Silento sneaks a new peak in his 2nd charting week. The big news of the week however is from Whitney Houston, whose "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" has had a crazy run of sticking around for 30 weeks while never reaching the top half of the list. The time has finally come as it barely gets there at #46. Plenty of debuts to note this week as well. Johnny Cash has been riding high with "Hurt" for a while now, not only is "Ring Of Fire" back, but he gets another entry with "The Man Comes Around" at #41. This is also one of those weeks to make me feel a bit old as we now reach the 2 year anniversary of Major Lazer's "Lean On", which is fortunate to climb back up on iTunes in time as it was way out of contention just a few days ago. We've then got a late 2014 contender that until now, ran out of steam right before becoming eligible. I also coincidentally heard it just last night, and Big Sean has "I Don't F**k With You" to enter the canon. Lastly there's Fleetwood Mac who pick up their 9th unique entry with "The Chain", I suspect not because of me getting a new record on Furi recently, of which the song shares its name with a boss battle.

Well once again it's all about Adele, even moreso than last week as she upgrades from having the whole top 5 to having the whole top 8, she's still alive don't worry. There's also a slight changing of the guard from her as her top songs have been very close and unsurprisingly swapped around a little. "Someone Like You" returns to the #1 spot while "Rolling In The Deep" having had a taste of glory slips to #3. This means that amazingly "Set Fire To The Rain", despite being perpetually overshadowed by two bigger singles on the album, has made #2 and nearly #1. It's general gains across the board for her too with "Don't You Remember" and "Chasing Pavements" newly breaking into the top 10, and "One and Only", "Turning Tables" and "Hometown Glory" in the top 20, the latter being a debut. This is all because Adele is touring, but she's not alone as Justin Bieber has recently started his Australian tour, and though he's a bit overshadowed with this, he's still got a respectable showing. His rap collaborations "Baby" and "As Long As You Love Me" re-enter with new peaks, while 2012's "Boyfriend" is a debut. He also helps bring some fresh 2015 blood to the chart as his Jack Ü collaboration debuts at #51, amusingly the 2nd week in a row that Diplo has debuted in that spot. That's not even the newest song debuting this week either, as just now becoming eligible is Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again", which is soon to be the most viewed video ever on YouTube for reasons beyond my understanding. Also 2015 related, Silento gets a new peak again because why not, but mostly why. We can then look back to 2014 as we have a new peak for Sheppard's "Geronimo" off the back of their newly released single, while Sia's "Chandelier" becomes the first 2014 released song to land 52 weeks on the chart. If that's all too fresh, then the rest of this week's debuts are much more vintage. Firstly there's Neil Young's "Harvest Moon", which is his first ever appearance in this chart and comes from of all eras, his early '90s career, meaning that it's just a few years older than the video game of the same name. It's probably here thanks to its inclusion in the TV series "Big Little Lies". I'm also thrilled to say that as someone who doesn't rate "Hypnotize" particularly highly, Biggie finally has a 2nd entry on this chart and it's his classic rags to riches debut single "Juicy". Lastly on the debut front is Don Henley's "The Boys Of Summer", perhaps proving it to be the most enduring version of the song as DJ Sammy & The Ataris have not yet featured.

If you're tired of the Adele domination then I'm sorry to say you'll have to wait out at least another week, although it has weakened somewhat this week. Her order also keeps shuffling around, and we could have even seen a new #1 as "Set Fire To The Rain" was leading a few days ago, but instead it's "Rolling In The Deep" back on top. Adele does do something to write new history though as "Skyfall" sneaks a slight new peak of #4. For the 3rd week in a row, Ed Sheeran has the highest non-Adele song, though outside of that, his stuff is mostly down this week. The one thing of note in the top 10 is a debut, one of only two this week, and it comes in the hours following the news of 90 year old rock & roll pioneer Chuck Berry's passing this morning. As you might expect, his representation here is through "Johnny B. Goode". The other debut this week is way down near the bottom of the chart, and quite the opposite of "Johnny B. Goode" as it's one of the newest songs on the list, though with one of the oldest artists on the chart as well. If that clue hasn't done it for you, the answer is "FourFiveSeconds", which has been eligible for a while now, but hasn't been high enough on the chart since October. I'm not totally sure why it's had a boost, but it's also accompanied by re-entries for Rihanna & Kanye West. In the land of new peaks, Wiz Khalifa improves from last week's debut with "See You Again" cracking the top 20, the upcoming Fast & Furious movie makes for good timing for this. Just shy of the top 40 are re-entries for Maroon 5 & Cyndi Lauper which are both new peaks, shed some sympathy for "Wildest Dreams" which re-enters at its old peak, and Sheppard's "Geromino" which is unmoved from last week's peak. The only other new peak this week is from Martin Garrix's "Animals", which first charted for one week at the end of 2015. Perhaps due to being so different to his recent hits, it hasn't re-entered at all during his chart boon, until now, reaching a slight new peak of #79. With not much happening on the chart, I'll note some unlucky tracks, with Zara Larsson's "Lush Life" and Pharrell Williams' "Freedom" having strong sales boosts this week, but both are a couple months away from chart eligibility. Also of note is that Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" is at its lowest position in nearly a year, which makes me wonder how much it's still riding on momentum from being covered for Suicide Squad.

(I just noticed I forgot to post the dropouts last week lol)

Mar 26th

Compared to last week, there's a bit more going on now. Adele's Australian tour has finished up so she sees declines all across the board, though still maintaining a strong presence in general. She does have to surrender the #1 position though, so Ed Sheeran retains that even though "Thinking Out Loud" isn't much higher than it was last week, and Ed's impact continues to diminish here as he has just 3 tracks left on the chart. Though you can't see here, the iTunes chart is loaded with tracks on the soundtrack for the new Beauty and the Beast film. This does have an effect here with the highest debut being the Celine Dion track from the original film, giving Celine her 2nd ever entry after "Because You Loved Me". Once again, for whatever reason, there's a big impact for the Dirty Dancing soundtrack, most notably with Bill Medley getting a new peak of #12 for "(I've Had) The Time Of My Life", but even "She's Like The Wind" manages a top 20 debut. The release of new Gorillaz music this week has brought back interest in their back catalogue. "Feel Good Inc." gets a new top 20 peak, while there are debuts for "DARE" and "Clint Eastwood". Gorillaz aren't the only ones to benefit in this way, Kendrick Lamar put out a new song a couple days ago, which helps ensure the only very recently eligible (it became eligible last week in fact) "King Kunta" gets a strong debut. James Blunt's new album also gives him a bit of action here, notably "Goodbye My Lover" re-charting for the first time since it debuted on the first ever chart. Semi-regulars "Sugar" and "Count On Me" manage new peaks this week. There's also a debut for Shirley Bassey at #22 for reasons I can't determine. For the rest of the debuts, the news seems to be one of the many country music award shows which impact iTunes in droves, though mostly with ineligible songs. The main exception to this is the Dixie Chicks who have a great week here with "Travelin' Soldier" scoring a new peak, and "Wide Open Spaces" debuting. Kip Moore also randomly does well, with "Somethin' 'Bout A Truck" being his eligible standing here. Also lastly, thanks to the belated digital release of Killing Heidi's debut album, the track "Weir" manages a debut here, "Mascara" a bit too far down at #526.

Apr 2nd

We were very close to having a new #1 this week, but instead we've proven that 2 consecutive weeks of Sheeran is very much possible, but only barely because by the time I've posted this, the Dixie Chicks have overtaken on iTunes. And indeed, their touring here is paying huge dividends as they have new peaks across the board, and 3 different tracks in the top 10 alone. They also lay claim to a debut for "Cowboy Take Me Away" lower down. The Adele takeover is well and truly over as her tracks escape to their natural habitats, though she still has 5 tracks on the chart. To replace, it would appear it's the return of the Eminem show in general, with a whole bunch of re-entries, including "'Till I Collapse" which improves its peak position by 1 whole spot! The only other new peaks to mention are Toto's "Africa" at #16 and "Everything Is AWESOME!!!" which re-enters off the back of the LEGO Batman Movie. There's more happening with debuts though, a bunch of them falling under the category of obscure bands with songs played in TV shows. The biggest is for the band Lord Huron, whose "The Night We Met" is super lucky to get this debut as it was released as a single early in 2015, if it hadn't been, it would be 5 days short of eligibility. In a similar fashion we have The Dead South's "In Hell I'll Be In Good Company", and Chromatics with their Neil Young cover "Into The Black". For quite a while there's been a popular cover of "I'm Still Standing" from the "Sing" soundtrack, now seemingly out of the blue, Elton John's original track pops in, only his 3rd track ever to chart. There's a relatively recent debut with Grace's "You Don't Own Me" cover having its first strong week since being eligible, and lastly we have a high debut for Soulja Boy and I haven't the faintest clue why.

Excellent top two. Shame that Not Ready To Make Nice just missed a number one peak, but I'm pleased it's their highest song as I love it. Lol at Kiss Me Thru The Phone.
Apr 9th

(while doing this, I discovered that I unintentionally missed "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" on the 19/03/2017 chart. It should have been #75, and all future charts from tonight onwards will reflect as such).

Well we have a new #1 now! If there was contention to Lord Huron's release last week, this week now marks the 2 year anniversary of their album release so they certainly belong here. Thanks to 13 Reasons Why, "The Night We Met" climbs to the top spot. Despite Sheeranstock having gone down midweek, he seems to have built up a strong finish at the last moment with "Photograph" even climbing back to #3. Outside of that, I hope you like new peaks because I've got so many to mention this week, and there are some major ones among it. Firstly in the top 10, we've got Gorillaz surging well beyond their first week back hype with "Feel Good Inc." jumping all the way up to #6, and lower down "DARE" and "Clint Eastwood" are back with new peaks as well. It also continues to be an auspicious time for "See You Again" which climbs into the top 10 at #7. Then there's what I would say is the big one, as after 64 weeks in the chart, Zac Brown Band see their best week yet with "Chicken Fried" up to #16. Behind them, Cyndi Lauper has a good week with "True Colors" and "Time After Time" both hitting new peaks. Shania Twain returns to the chart for the first time this year with "Man! I Feel Like A Woman!" hitting a new peak in the process. Kendrick Lamar's "King Kunta" also sees the top 30 with his new album expected to drop this upcoming week. Speaking of which, we've got Hottest 100 royalty from "Big Jet Plane" just narrowly improving its old peak by 2 places. It's also a good week for Cat Stevens with "Father and Son" reaching a new peak while the super condescending "Wild World" debuts lower down. With JAY Z having removed a lot of his music from streaming services, he conveniently has a good week here, with "Ni**as In Paris" logging its 2nd best position ever. Elton John also follows up last week's debut by doubling his presence through "Rocket Man", which hasn't charted since the first ever chart here. There is little to note on the debut front. Pete Murray has a new song out though, and it perhaps helps him get his first ever appearance here. It's "So Beautiful" that makes the cut, though "Better Days" and "Opportunity" weren't far off either. Lastly, we go back to TV land as a cover of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" which was featured in the season finale of Big Little Lies debuts at #83. Although I will also note that last week's #100, "Flame Trees", lands at #101 this week, so I guess you can't always get what you want.

13 Reasons Why continues to dominate the cultural zeitgeist, as represented here by Lord Huron maintaining their #1 position, increasing from #72 on iTunes last week to #53 this week. I've also belatedly realised that this show is the reason why Vance Joy's "Mess Is Mine" has re-entered, and it almost got "Love Will Tear Us Apart" into the chart as well. The top 10 is mostly filled with regulars but we have a huge climb for Rage Against The Machine, possibly in vague reaction to the current political climate, I'm not really sure. One of only two debuts this week lands in the top 10, Led Zeppelin scoring their 3rd ever entry with "Immigrant Song". The other debut is lower down, with Pete Murray scoring 2 debuts in 2 weeks with "Better Days" entering, and even higher now than "So Beautiful". Pete is a bit unlucky though as he had several tracks in the top 100 on iTunes just a few days ago. To counter the lack of debuts, there are plenty of new peaks this week. First up it's Kendrick continuing to climb with "King Kunta" now up to #16, while just a little more overdue is Kenny Rogers finally cracking the top 20 with "The Gambler" in its 69th week no less. Whitney Houston has a good week with all 3 of her charting songs re-entering this week, most notably "I Will Always Love You" which is the highest and scores a new peak. Also re-entering with new peaks are Billy Joel, Killing Heidi and Bruno Mars. One of the most frequent new peakers is Eminem's "'Till I Collapse", which continues to slowly improve with a new peak of #34. Overall a slow week, but if you're interested in fresh new entries, there are a few on the way, including a very big hit which will be almost certainly debuting in 2 weeks time, what could it be?

Killing In The Name climbs due to the song being played on children's toys somewhere on the internets.

It's hard to see the future but it's starting to look like Lord Huron may be in for the long haul here. "The Night We Met" still rules easily on iTunes, but now it's getting some Spotify traction so it could get picked up by radio (if it hasn't already). It's thus another week of Ed Sheeran & Mark Ronson behind it, but there's a fair bit of interesting action in the top 10 this week. I know that there was a big countdown on MAX earlier in the week which may or may not have some impact this week, but suffice to say that AC/DC fans remembered to vote, and they've had a huge week with all their stuff on the up. There's just one new peak among them but it's a big one as "Thunderstruck" climbs to #4 in its 79th week. Elton John's "Rocket Man" continues to climb, now at #8, and it possibly helps him re-enter "Tiny Dancer", originally a #100 and out charter, now it halves that and is in at #50. Country music has yet another good week, and it's most manifested in the Zac Brown Band whose "Chicken Fried" has a tremendous leap to a new peak of #6 in its 66th week. But to show that they're not a one hit wonder, the buying public have also turned to their Jimmy Buffett collaboration "Knee Deep" which debuts, and they're also super unlucky to not chart with "Loving You Easy", which is just 1 week away from being eligible, maybe next week? It's not just Zac Brown who's benefitting though, as Darius Rucker also climbs to a new peak with "Wagon Wheel" now up to #17. Last year The Sweet entered with "Fox On The Run" thanks to the Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 trailers. Now that the film is out, they re-enter much higher at #12. That's actually the last new peak to mention as instead we've been blessed with a variety of debuts. Anzac Day is of course on the way, and the lucky top choice of "The Last Post" recordings goes to The Bugler, which incidentally only became eligible this year. If you're in the mood for some 2000s nostalgia, we've got you covered with debuts from Eve, City High & Nelly Furtado. Perhaps unlucky not to be higher here, 1927's "If I Could" was spotted in the top 100 on iTunes earlier this week, it manages a relatively low debut considering. Celine Dion is still yet to chart with her most famous song, but she's got a 3rd entry now with her Bee Gees collaboration "Immortality". Lastly, 13 Reasons Why fans are kind to me and help push "Love Will Tear Us Apart" into the chart for the first time ever. It is also worth noting that if I've counted correctly, the chart is up to 998 debuts. There's certainly a newly eligible song debuting that week, and perhaps we'll see which song gets the vague honour of being the 1000th debut.

Is the Samsung ad using Rocket Man with the postiches airing in Australia? Cos we've had this one on tv for about 3 weeks in France and since I saw Rocket Man close to being #100 yesterday, I was wondering.
Yeah it's definitely on an ad here, I wasn't sure what for as I've only heard it in passing from another room, so I guess that's what it is.
Yes it is, Innocent Eyes
Thanks to the both of you
Apr 30th

Time for another round of everyone's favourite: housekeeping! Though I had been keeping track of it, 392 noted to me this week that "Stitches" by Shawn Mendes actually hit its 2nd birthday back in March. So it should have debuted on the March 19th chart. It has appeared every week since then except for April 9th when it dropped out briefly, so Adele fans are lucky they don't lose a week of "Rumour Has It". As usual, all future data will reflect this change.

Onto the main show, there's a lot happening this week. It would seem that since I threw down the gauntlet of the 1000th debut, we've got more than our fair share of contenders for it. The Mendes mishap means that it will be the highest debut that gets the honour, and wouldn't you know, we just so happen to have a #1 debut this week. It would appear that The Voice is back on TV, and though its effect here is muted by the fact that it occurs in the middle of the week, such was its draw that Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me" still remains at the top of the pack 4 days later. Mind you, it's a little lucky that Lord Huron's sales have slowed down this week otherwise they'd hold at #1 for another week. Instead they're #3 because also overtaking them is Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain", one of many beneficiaries of the new Guardians Of The Galaxy movie. Fleetwood Mac are now mimicking their ARIA success because this less obvious choice is their sole top 10 peaker on this chart. As mentioned, Fleetwood Mac aren't the only ones to benefit from the film, also jumping into the top 10 this week is The Sweet, and the breakout hit from the first film, Blue Swede's "Hooked On A Feeling". Cat Stevens is not far off either, with "Father and Son" jumping 83 places to #11. We then go to what I imagine is The Voice's effect, as there's a big debut at #4 for Tina Charles, while Destiny's Child's "Say My Name" re-enters at #5, the start of a good week here for Beyonce. Just below the top 10 we've got another debut for Celine Dion, and the first ever entry for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds with "Into My Arms". The Voice & Guardians seemingly keep swapping back and forth on the debuts, as we go down the chart we've got entries for Electric Light Orchestra, Randy Crawford, Adele, The Darkness, Taylor Swift, Redbone, Sam Cooke, George Harrison, Rupert Holmes & Marvin Gaye. Seal's back in the judging seat on The Voice so "Kiss From A Rose" is back in, and brings "Crazy" along for the ride as well. In that world of re-entering pairs, Paul Kelly has "Dumb Things" and "To Her Door" back as well, both songs previously debuting together. A tiny bit overshadowed with everything else happening, but twenty one pilots' most recent album is approaching its 2nd birthday, and one of the first singles released, "Stressed Out" is now eligible to chart, debuting at #41. As mentioned before, it's a good week for Beyonce, in addition to "Say My Name", she's also got re-entries for "Crazy In Love", "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" and "Halo", and even a debut for "Listen" to boot. On the other hand, it's a rare week with Eminem holding just 2 entries, the perennial "Lose Yourself" and "Rap God". Next week we may have another newly eligible song debuting, which is considerably less obvious than the last one.

May 7th

Last week I left a little teaser comment relating to a newly eligible song. I said it was less obvious because it's probably a song whose age you wouldn't readily think of, and a constant seller of late that is less obvious in general. I had no idea what was in store for the following week. Chris Stapleton recently released a new song which I figured was enough of a promotion boost to ensure that "Tennessee Whiskey" would get a debut. But then this week the song would get performed on The Voice and rocket up to #2 on iTunes, much like Bonnie Raitt last week, almost certainly locking it in as a #1 debut. By some cosmic alignment of some sort, this all just happened to happen on the week it became eligible, making my comment last week pertain to the least under-the-radar debut of the week! All up it's been a fun week. And so apart from that, the big news of the week is Bruno Mars having announced an Australian tour coming next year, with everyone scrambling to get tickets. The result of it here is that he has 9 songs on the chart this week all with sizeable jumps. Funnily enough, given his perpetual success on this chart, it doesn't net much in the way of new peaks & entries. Among all of them, the only new peak is "Just The Way You Are" which edges slightly closer to top 10 glory at #13, while this hefty selection of his hits is mostly familiar here, with the sole exception of first time entrant "The Lazy Song". Also having quite an impact this week is the Bee Gees, thanks to a recent tribute show. Incidentally, their highest entry is one that only just recently debuted, with their Celine Dion collaboration "Immortality" all the way up at #3, it was pacing very close to the #1 spot on the chart for a few days. Their impact on the chart this week has lots to remark on. Next up is a new peak for "Stayin' Alive" at #22, while the rest are all debuts, with "To Love Somebody", "How Deep Is Your Love" and "You Should Be Dancing" all entering this week. Aside from the #1, it's a big week again for The Voice. In the space of two days, they decided to cover two different Vance Joy songs because he can never get enough promotion. "Fire and the Flood" still awaits eligibility, but "Georgia", has no problem entering the top 10 for a second time at a new high of #7. We've also got the first ever entry for Gabrielle Aplin, with her cover of "The Power Of Love" also able to sneak into the top 10 at #10. Lower down is the original version by Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Culture Club & Shawn Mullins also have impressive debuts. In new peaks-ville, we've got twenty one pilots improving from their debut last week up 10 places, and then 3 successive new peaks from re-entries from Lorde's "Royals", and Green Day with "Good Riddance" and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams". Green Day I believe also pertains to a tour announcement, and they also manage a debut for "When I Come Around" lower down. Recently stripped of an Australian chart record, ABBA have slight consolation with "Dancing Queen" scoring a new peak. Also intriguing this week is that Fleetwood Mac re-enter with "Landslide" with a new peak to boot, but the Dixie Chicks also re-enter. It's interesting because the two have never coincided, in fact Fleetwood Mac's last appearance on the chart was before Dixie Chicks had even debuted! Showing that it's not all just about tour announcements, we've got current tourists Milky Chance re-entering with "Stolen Dance" at #24. For the rest of the debuts, it's all first times for the artists involved, with the slight exception of Luke Bryan who first entered featuring on a Florida Georgia Line song, but now strikes out on his own with "Play It Again". Making a less obvious pick, Paolo Nutini enters with an album track from his first album in "Autumn". Finally there's the Australian chart juggernaut as Trisha Yearwood's version of "How Do I Live" sneaks in. All up exactly half of this chart was entries and re-entries, making for quite a busy week! Amidst all this, last week's #1 "I Can't Make You Love Me" fell well out of chart range and as it stands is only the 2nd song to chart at #1 for its only appearance, alongside Jon English's "Six Ribbons".

Full disclosure: I was up late watching Eurovision last night so this week's snapshot is 2 hours later than usual.

May 14th

After the busy antics of The Voice & Guardians of the Galaxy lately, it's a relatively quiet week, perhaps even normal. Ed Sheeran is back to #1, half by default, and half by proxy of his team having the Adele strategy in place of having something to perk up sales every few weeks. This time around it was a tour announcement, which sees a big rise in his stocks, we'll have to see in a week or so if tickets being on sale will perpetuate it. Unlike the previous Voice assisted #1, Chris Stapleton sticks around for a second week, even as high as #3, while most of the top 10 is business as usual. Two exceptions being a huge rise for Keane, and a re-entry for Elton John giving him another top 10 hit in "Tiny Dancer". Two of our favourite slow climbers are at it again, with Darius Rucker's "Wagon Wheel" and Eminem's "'Till I Collapse" scoring slight new peaks this week. Also in new peak land this week is 4 Non Blonde's occasional entrant "What's Up" now in the top 50 for the first time, while Moby & Sting have new peaks with their re-entries. There was some Eurovision stuff charting high earlier in the week though sadly it all seems to have disappeared, with the exception of a rebound for "Titanium" after being covered by Germany. As for new entries, we've got a bit of an overdue one for Leonardo's Bride, which I imagine would likely have been a #1 here if I started this chart a few months sooner. Lower down we have Robert Miles debuting in response to his passing earlier in the week. We go back to the early 2000s for a debut from Juvenile's "Slow Motion", and lastly we have Bob Seger's first ever entry in "Old Time Rock and Roll", which I'm using as an opportunity to link this interesting article I read about how his resistance to digital outlets has impacted his lasting legacy http://www.npr.org/sections/therecord/2017/03/29/521642313/where-have-all-the-bob-seger-albums-gone

May 21st

It's another one of those glum weeks where the chart this week is taken over by the sad passing of a star. This time around it's Chris Cornell, whose passing hit the headlines on Thursday night. The iTunes reaction has far surpassed my expectations and it has been thoroughly loaded up with many different facets of his extensive career. The big track of course is "Black Hole Sun", which even briefly managed to crack the iTunes top 10, and finds itself safely at the #1 spot. Not far away is what would seem to be the enduring favourite of his 2nd most popular band Audioslave in "Like A Stone". From there, the two bands take turns on this chart for a while, with "Spoonman" following at #3, then (somewhat surprisingly for me) "Cochise" at #4. "Fell On Black Days" enters at #5 and "Show Me How To Live" at #6. Soundgarden take a back seat as Audioslave have the next entry with "Be Yourself" at #8, while Chris Cornell has a solo effort also debuting in the top 10, a cover of "Billie Jean". Outside of Cornell, there are just two other songs in the top 10, both regulars. Interestingly, the hype for Sheeran just kept growing to the point that "Thinking Out Loud" is actually higher on iTunes than it was for last week's chart. Sitting behind it at #9 is the perennial "The Horses". There's plenty more Cornell to be seen lower in the chart, he has yet another incarnation with Temple Of The Dog at #11, while there's a huge concentration of entries between #16 and #26 which includes a few live performances. As tends to be the case, the entries are concentrated at the top of the chart, and there are only a small handful below the top 50. All up, Cornell directly contributes to 25 entries today. Incidentally he could have had more considering that his most recent solo album was released in 2015, though sadly even the lead single isn't quite eligible yet. Looking to other parts of the chart, there's still a bit going on. Even in the world of new peaks, where most songs are extremely handicapped for spaces. Most notably, twenty one pilots impressively climb to a new peak of #21 with "Stressed Out", while re-entering for new peaks this week are Sara Bareilles' "Gravity", Linkin Park's "In The End" and Cher's "Believe". Also to note this week are a small handful of other debuts. It's a week for '80s music fans, with the highest being Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'", and it's followed by some Australian entries, Divinyls getting their first ever entry with "Pleasure and Pain", while Australian Crawl get their second ever entry with "Reckless (Don't Be So)".

May 28th

It's mostly a normalising week. A good chunk of the chart climbs back up as many of the Soundgarden tracks move back out, only the single digit peakers remain on the chart this week. Yet once again we have a new #1 under sad news. Following the attack on Ariana Grande's Manchester show, there's been a rally call behind "One Last Time", a track which came close to debuting but fell out of favour just before it became eligible. Now it comes straight in at #1, while also bringing along another single from the same album in "Break Free", and perhaps inappropriately, "Bang Bang". Ed Sheeran's tour went on sale last week and yet again it's a good week for his stock. Seemingly thanks to The Voice, we get a high entry from Wendy Matthews and also new peaks for Oasis & The Temper Trap. Also scoring a new peak is Beyonce's long running "Halo", now cracking the top 20 in its 21st week. It's a good week for some music legends too, Michael Jackson gets his 2nd ever entry with "Man In The Mirror", while the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Peppers renews interest in The Beatles. Incidentally, their highest 2 entries this week, "Let It Be" and "Here Comes The Sun" aren't on that album, but saving the day is the album's incredible closer "A Day In The Life". The Rolling Stones are also back in the chart, with their recent 100 million Spotify play reacher "Gimme Shelter" re-entering at a new peak, with "Paint It, Black" also appearing lower down. I remember Aerosmith's "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" being a constant presence in the iTunes top 300 around 2008, but it just now gets its debut here at #33. Miley Cyrus lives up to the track's name and for the first time ever, "The Climb" climbs to a new peak. Spare some sympathy for Whitney though who just barely misses a new peak with the ever-present "I Wanna Dance With Somebody". Voice favourite Emeli Sande gets her first ever entry with "Clown", while we get some peculiar cross over with the 2009 Hottest 100 of All Time as Blur & Placebo have their first ever entries. Sia has just this morning announced a tour which has some impact here with "Chandelier" re-entering and a later forthcoming single "Big Girls Cry" getting in for the first time. ARIA #1 bingo players get some more relief this week as we get additional debuts from Cher's "If I Could Turn Back Time" and Rihanna's "Umbrella". The Whitlams re-enter due to being covered on Like A Version, and James Bay replaces Idina Menzel's song of the same name.

Don't Look Back In Anger was used in Manchester during a tribute for the victims of the terrorist attacks à few days ago, hence the climb.

Thanks for the chart. I don't always comment but follow it every week.
Cheers, I always look forward to making this chart every week.

Jun 4th

There's a benefit concert happening in Manchester tonight and perhaps as a result, "One Last Time" has boosted back up on iTunes and secured a 2nd week at the top. Otherwise it's mostly regular friends in the top 10, with two exceptions. In the wake of his new album release, Pete Murray has some attention back on his catalogue, "Better Days" fairing the best (it's even outselling his current single!) and re-entering way up at #5. There's also a new peak for "So Beautiful" and a debut for "Opportunity". Tina Charles also re-enters the top 10 with "I Love To Love" for reasons unknown. After her first week out of the chart, Rachel Platten re-enters spectacularly and nearly scores a new peak, though just lower down, we do get a new peak from the continued living-up-to-its-name of "The Climb". Meanwhile if you're a fan of pop-punk and the like, this is a good week for you. Sum 41 get their first ever chart entries as "In Too Deep" and "Fat Lip" both enter, meanwhile Jimmy Eat World re-enter the chart and Yellowcard also debut with "Ocean Avenue". It's also a pretty good week for country music, though largely in the ineligible side, but nonetheless Lady Antebellum score a new peak with "Need You Now", and Blake Shelton's ridiculous/unfairly maligned "Boys 'Round Here" gets a debut. In fact it is the season of re-entering new peaks, and we get a fascinating mixture elsewhere, as it also applies to Killing Heidi's "Weir", Shakira's "Waka Waka", Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here", and of course Big Sean's "I Don't F**k With You". Imagine Dragons are having some hits again, and their back catalogue is back in the spotlight, with "Radioactive" re-entering, and a more recent single in "Warriors" getting a surprising debut. Lastly we have the newest song in the chart as The Weeknd's just recently eligible "The Hills" manages to sneak in. Interestingly enough, "Can't Feel My Face" becomes eligible next week, but it would have been #101 this week if it were eligible.

Making a bold prediction that Lose Yourself will be #1
or at least #2 next week thanks to Jinxs EOY Countdown.

Funnily enough, Lose Yourself is higher on iTunes than it was last week, evidently I should've done my countdown on Saturday night to maximise impact

Jun 11th

For numerous reasons this week, there's a big helping of anglophilia at play. Realistically, "One Last Time" should be #1 again, but its sales are split between two versions, so much so that its 2nd version is actually ahead of #3 on this chart as well. While the Manchester concert is very much on display this week, we were also greeted with the Carpool Karaoke that everyone but me wanted so all those extremely high Sheeran tracks get to be even higher this week. We do get some unusual suspects amongst the bunch though, with the new peaks going to "Sing" all the way up in the top 10, and "Don't" which has a hefty climb from last week to #22. Back on Manchester though, Coldplay & Oasis are the big beneficiaries, "Fix You" returns to its #4 peak, while Oasis have new peaks for "Don't Look Back In Anger" and "Wonderwall", for the latter this is its first ever week in the top 10 despite 71 weeks on the chart. Sticking with "(What's The Story) Morning Glory", Oasis have a 3rd entry this week with "Champagne Supernova". Ariana Grande also has "Break Free" back in the chart after last week's disappearance, going all the way up to #9 this week. This week is also full of new peaks that I can't sufficiently explain. Bic Runga's "Sway" is back in at #14, Salt-N-Pepa have "Push It" back for the first time in about a year and a half, at #16, while The Rolling Stones continue to climb with "Paint It, Black" up to #24. It's also been a little while since we've seen "Gangsta's Paradise", it's now been oddly credited on iTunes with L.V. listed first, but maybe that's what it needed to score a new peak this week. 2Pac has his two main entries back in play, and "California Love" scores a new peak. One thing I can explain is the new peak for the Vengaboys' "Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!", which is the result of a viral video. Elsewhere are some peculiar debuts this week. Mama Cass has her first ever entry, while the same can be said of Tone-Loc, with one of his two hits that sound the same. Lastly, Killing Heidi pair up their recently charting "Weir" with their other big hit "Mascara" charting for the first time. Once again, the "Let It Go"s cannot be seen in the same room, with James Bay's being covered on The Voice this week, while Adele's "Someone Like You" drops out of the chart for only the 2nd time ever.

Though it would appear there are no new reasons for everyone to re-invest in Sheeran-stock this week, there was a hefty rebound that occurred last night to assure the top spot doesn't change. Otherwise, the big news of the week is the new 2Pac biopic that came out this week, right around his birthday even. His two regulars on this chart "California Love" & "Changes" rocket up to new peaks, and there are a further 4 debuts from his catalogue lower down the chart. It would seem that rap music is generally in vogue, as there's also a sudden boost for, of all things, "I Don't F**k With You", which now has a #4 peak to its name. In fact, with not much in the way, the top 10 was open season this week, as we also see huge new peaks for "Party In The U.S.A.", and "Into My Arms". Pharrell's "Happy" is also into single digits for the first time this year. With a new album out this week, Lorde jumps back into the chart with "Royals" up to #11, while London Grammar belatedly re-enter "Strong" as well. The Voice is still going, and it brings with it Paloma Faith's 2nd ever entry, "Only Love Can Hurt Like This", as well as a re-entry for Sara Bareilles' "Gravity". Go way down further and you'll find it also provided a belated debut for James Bay's "Hold Back The River", which despite chart success, has otherwise been forgotten in favour of "Let It Go". It's also been a few weeks since it was on The Voice, but now this week, everyone's favourites Lukas Graham have a newly eligible second entry with "7 Years" just sneaking in this week. In the land of new peaks, we have a big one as Whitney Houston now cracks the top 40 with "I Wanna Dance With Somebody", as do blink-182 with the slightly less regular charter "All The Small Things". Mama Cass continues her momentum from last week for a new peak, while we have one of the most random debuts in some time, a cover of a Magnetic Fields song by Peter Gabriel from his "Scratch My Back" album. Lastly there's a soundtrack favourite from Gotan Project, "Santa Maria" in at #63.

Jun 25th

This week is something of a Greatest Hits for this chart. Though there's a healthy serving of new entries, there's also an immense list of returning regulars, setting a new record for the average weeks in on the chart, just shy of 40 weeks. At the top of this week's pile however is a new entry, which I assumed was from some TV promo, but apparently thanks to YouTubers/once radio presenters Dan & Phil, there's a lot of attention being put towards Christina Perri's "Arms", which was the follow up single to "Jar Of Hearts" that never troubled the Australian charts. Incidentally, "Jar Of Hearts" has still never reached this chart, while her other hit "A Thousand Years" is a constant presence that nearly reached a new peak this week. Apart from Perri, the rest of this week's top 10 was there last week. In a similar world of exciting pop music for mums, we have Rachel Platten scoring a slight new peak with "Fight Song", and a general huge influx for Shawn Mendes, which nets a big new peak for "Stitches" here. Also in the top 20 is a re-entry for Eminem's "Love The Way You Lie", which reaches its old peak in its 52nd week on the chart. Recently, The Amity Affliction have done a cover of The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face", which unlike their Lana Del Rey cover, I thoroughly cannot recommend. With that, in addition to The Weeknd announcing the Australian leg of his world tour, "Can't Feel My Face" finds a strong debut at #24, while "The Hills" is also back in action lower down. It's also a terrific week for songs I thoroughly dislike debuting. As people are dazzled by "Body Like A Back Road", Sam Hunt's first big pop crossover hit "Take Your Time" lands here, while Owl City writing an essay about the silly lyrics of "Fireflies" brings it back to people's attention at #60. twenty one pilots have a belated debut for "Ride" which has been waiting in the wings for a little while, and Celine Dion finally enters with "My Heart Will Go On" as various Beauty and the Beast related things seem to be selling. The last batch of debuts see Grinspoon in for the first time with "Lost Control", know that if this chart were done mid-week, they'd have a plethora of high placings, as they performed at a football event I believe. DJ Khaled's latest single samples that great guitar riff from Santana's "Maria Maria", and that gives him his first ever entry, evidently it's the enduring Santana hit. Also just sneaking in is Rufus Wainwright's cover of The Beatles' "Across The Universe" which was made for "I Am Sam" as they couldn't get the rights to the original versions, and apparently it's in a Samsung ad.

Also in news relating to this chart, I am in the midst of developing a new feature that could make for some more interesting conversation points for this chart. It should come in either next week or the week after, depending on how much I work on it.

Ooh, a Sam Hunt song I like is doing something. There are two better ones, but Take Your Time is good too. Shame that it leads off the list of your disliked songs.

Arms is possibly the most random number one on this yet.
I like House Party, but unfortunately most other songs I've heard of his really rub me the wrong way.
Look forward to seeing the new feature Hijinx.
Haha, while decent, House Party isn't one of my two preferences; Leave The Night On and Break Up In A Small Town for the win.
I have the occasional soft spot for shamelessly dumb/goofy country songs like that, Boys 'Round Here, Red Solo Cup etc
For the record Grinspoon performed as the pre-game entertainment for State Of Origin II in Sydney on Wednesday night. They are also promoting the 20th anniversary of Guide To Better Living.
Btw i'm an avid follower of this chart, in fact I enjoy it a lot more than the steaming turd ARIA has become
Yeah, Lost Control was all the way up into the iTunes top 40 that night too
Jul 2nd

Given that "Sing" and "Don't" are still on the chart, it would appear that the carpool shenanigans are still doing Sheeran favour some weeks on, so maybe that's why he's still serving as a de facto #1. It was very close this week mind you, "The Horses" just 1 spot lower on iTunes. There was also a fair bit of competition that fizzled out. The Voice is leading into its grand final tonight I think, and it's been quite a force this week. Whitney Houston was covered more than once, and she has her best week yet here, with "I Have Nothing" re-entering at #3, and chart regular "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" getting an unprecedented boost, vaulting to a huge new peak of #8. Actually it was a good week for top 10 new peaks. Katy Perry's "Roar" is still yet to drop out of the chart once, and now it slightly improves to a #6 peak. Rachel Platten also continues her momentum to reach the top 10 for the first time with "Fight Song", while despite their album release being last week, Imagine Dragons keep on improving, sending "Radioactive" to the top 10 for the first time, while "Demons" climbs and "On Top Of The World" re-enters. There is only one debut on the chart this week. Thanks to some sort of dance video, Major Lazer have their second entry to date, and highest ever, with "Powerful" of all songs. It was actually outselling their current single a couple days ago. Lower down it's just a few more new peaks. With thanks to the film Baby Driver, Golden Earring's "Radar Love" re-enters for a new peak of #23, while recent debutants from Sam Hunt, Lukas Graham & Rufus Wainwright continue upwards. There's another Voice-influenced new peak via The Goo Goo Dolls, while you could be forgiven for not knowing that there was a Bad Boy Records film on Apple Music this week. Midweek it had several Notorious B.I.G. related singles up at the very pointy end of this chart, come chart time, only "I'll Be Missing You" has a noted impression with its new peak this week. Also, shout out to last week's #1 "Arms", which in unprecedented fashion, has dropped out not only from the chart, but the entire iTunes top 1500.

Now for that new feature I mentioned last week. It's not totally ready because I'm trying to retroactively create data for all the previous charts, which is quite a time consuming project, but I hope to have summary data for you all when I'm finished, as well as amplifying the current data with the usual chart details.

You should know that I love telling you week after week that AC/DC & Eminem are indeed still very popular, and there are a fair share of songs who are on this chart more often than not, not leaving much room for variance at times. Since I have been copying the entire iTunes chart every week since November 2015, I thought I should use this data and present a bubbling under chart. As the name suggests, this will be a listing of the top 20 songs of the week that are eligible for the week's chart, but have yet to manage a debut. This is an incredibly volatile chart and I've found that there are usually about 18 entries/re-entries each week, but nonetheless I think it's rather interesting, as it may show tracks that missed their moment due to bad timing, or perhaps showing some deeper cuts when certain artists have a turn in the spotlight. There's also more chance for new tracks to make their mark, as it seems to be harder than ever for new songs to maintain their sales. If you're a big fan of the bubbling under #1 for a week, don't feel too angry towards the chart's #100, as it is very unlikely that the bubbling under #1 is actually the theoretical #101. I've done charts all the way up to December 2016, and I think Rihanna's "Only Girl (In The World)" is the only song to have arguably peaked at #101.

So for this week's bubbling under chart, I don't have the LW/WI/HP data ready but I should next week. In my experience with it thus far, Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing" is a bit of a chart regular, the band having only cracked the chart with "Romeo and Juliet" thus far. MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This" also comes up a bit here, but most of the rest here are very uncommon with the data I have so far. There seems to be a notable influx of Michael Jackson this week, while recent boosts for Whitney Houston & Grinspoon net them entries. Adam Lambert's "Ghost Town" is likely boosted by him having a new single out this week, while on the recently eligible side we have Zara Larsson's "Lush Life", as well as RÜFÜS's "You Were Right", the latter having just become eligible this week.
