Flying at the top of the ARIA Singles chart for a fifth week are Owl City and their newly certified double platinum selling track “Fireflies” (DL: 1 hold), plus their album “Ocean Eyes” zooms up ten places to a new peak of No.15 this week.
For four of the past five weeks of Owl Cities reign, they have been accompanied at No.2 by Ke$ha and her former No.1 track “Tik Tok” (DL: 3 hold, Phys: 4 to 3), which this week falls to No.3 to sit back to back with her latest single “Blah Blah Blah” (DL: 4 to 6) at No.4 (for a second week). Meaning that there is a new No.2 single, and climbing one place to achieve that is Iyaz and his track “Replay” (DL: 2 hold).
On Australia Day (last Tuesday), ABC Radio station Triple J played their annual Hottest 100 countdown, and as usual some of the songs that appeared on their countdown have made jumps up the ARIA charts this week, most notably is their No.1 voted song “Little Lion Man” (DL: 16 to 4) by Mumford & Sons, which last week spent it’s 16th week in the charts at No.16, this week leaps eleven places to a new peak of No.5. No.2 on their list was “Parlez Vous Francais?” by local act Art vs. Science, which can be found on their self-titled EP (Phys: 10 to 6), which this week jumps up forty-three places to a new peak of No.36 (and first time in the Top 50). No.3 on the Triple J was 2009 ARIA Award winning act The Hilltop Hoods and their single “Chase That Feeling”, which leaps back into the Top 50 at No.49 this week. BlueJuice were at No.5 on that list with “Broken Leg” (DL: 34) which is up fourteen places to No.32 (also helped by the Big Day Out performances). Other tracks within their Top 20 that climb this week are “Undisclosed Desires” (DL: 23 to 12) (J#19, 25 to 13 on ARIA), “Home” by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes (J#15, 64 to 48 on ARIA), “Bonkers” by Dizzee Rascal (J#12, 76 to 43 on ARIA), “Uprising” (DL: 31) by Muse (J#9, 60 to 31 on ARIA) “Not Fair” by Lily Allen (J#8, up to 78 on ARIA), “Coin Laundry” by Lisa Mitchell (J#&, Re-Entry at 74 on ARIA) and “Bulletproof” (DL: 33 hold) by La Roux was No.6 on Triple J’s countdown, and climbs back up few places to No.33 on the ARIA Charts.
NEW PEAKS: Jay Sean looks set to score a second Top 10 single next week, as his latest track “Do You Remember” (DL: 18 to 13) is up six places to No.12 this week, and right behind him is the aforementioned Muse and their highest ever placed single in Australia, “Undisclosed Desires” (DL: 23 to 12) which leaps up twelve places to No.13 no doubt helped by them being the headline act at this years Big Day Out Festivals around the country. David Guetta and Akon take their “Memories” (DL:17 to 14) up to a new peak of No.14. Timbaland climbs a single place to No.27 to gain a new peak for his track “Morning After Dark” (DL: 28 to 26). Selena Gomez & The Scene take their track “Naturally” (DL: 40 debut) into the Top 50 this week by jumping up thirty-six places to No.46.
BIG DAY OUT: As I mentioned Muse have two big singles moving up the charts this week, but other BDO acts who benefit this week are BlueJuice, Art vs Science and Dizzee Rascal who has two singles re-enter the Top 50 this week, with “Bonkers” back up thirty-three places to No.43. He also scores the biggest climbing single within the Top 100 as “Holiday” jumps back up forty-six places to No.50. Dizzee was joined by Calvin Harris on some of his show, Calvin also playing sideshows by himself, and this week he scores the highest new entry to the Top 100, coming in at No.40 with his latest track “Flashback” (DL: 36 debut). This becomes Calvin’s second highest charting solo single on the ARIA Charts, having hit No.33 in August 2007 with “The Girls”.
The other Top 50 debut this week comes from Rihanna and her official second single from her “Rated R” (No.40 this week) album entitled “Rude Boy” (DL: 39 debut), which lands at No.45. Although the track “Hard” hit No.51 two weeks ago and is at No.72 this week, this latest track is the official second single, and joins “Russian Roulette” on the charts, which is down to No.41 this week. Another track has also charted from the album, entitled “Wait Your Turn” which hit No.82 for a week in early December 2009.
BELOW Top 50: New peaking tracks below the Top 50 this week are Cascada’s “Fever” (#54), Kid Cudi and MGMT on “Pursuit of Happiness” (up 33 places to No.56), Mumford & Sons’ second single “The Cave” (up 29 places to No.62), the group Amy Meredith and their track “Pornstar” (#65), John Mayer with “Heartbreak Warfare” (#66) and lastly up to a new peak of No.85 is The Hilltop Hoods’ first single “The Nosebleed Section”.
Local group Passion Pit score their first ARIA Top 100 Singles entry by debuting at No.52 with “Little Secrets”, taken from their former No.19 album “Manners”, which leaps back up the album charts nineteen places to No.39.
The song “You’ve Got the Love” by Florence + The Machine enters at No.94, giving them their second ARIA Singles Chart entry. Their first single “Dog Days” hit No.83 last March, and re-enters at No.96 this week, no doubt helped by their current tour here. And entering right behind them at No.95 is Alvin & The Chipmunks and their version of the Dead or Alive1985 single “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)”.
Lastly, special mention must go to Lady GaGa’s first single “Just Dance”, which is spending it’s 75th week in the Top 100, putting in third place for the ‘Longest Running Single on the ARIA Top 100”. It’s just behind “My People” by The Presents (76 weeks) and “SexyBack” by Justin Timberlake (79 weeks). “Poker Face” has also racked up it’s 71st week on the charts, placing it sixth overall, right behind two 72 weekers, “Low” by Flo Rida and “Straight Lines” by Silverchair.
Susan Boyle stays atop the ARIA Albums chart for a tenth consecutive week, something which an album has done since the “Moulin Rouge” soundtrack spent eleven straight weeks at the No.1 spot back between late May and early August in 2001. Whilst many albums have spent more overall time at the top, staying put week after week is something of a rarity, so if she ties next week, I’ll have a look back further for the last long-running No.1 stayer.
With Mumford & Sons winning the No.1 spot on the Triple J Hottest 100 countdown with the song “Little Lion Man”, plus also placing at No.81 with “The Cave”, their parent album “Sigh No More” had been sitting at No.7 for the past couple of weeks, this week it jumps up five places to a new peak of No.2. With the band in the country this week at the Laneway Festival and at the Oxford Art Factory in Sydney, it could push its way even higher next week.
Michael Buble holds at No.3 with his “Crazy Love” album, Lady GaGa climbs back up two places to No.4 with “The Fame Monster” set, pushing Ke$ha’s “Animal” down a place to No.5. Last week’s highest new entry from The McClymonts, “Wrapped Up Good” is down to No.6, and three weeks ago Vampire Weekend was the No.2 entry with “Contra”, which this week is down two places to No.7. With Muse scoring two big jumping singles helped by Triple J placings, but more so due to their Big Day Out headlining, their former No.1 album “The Resistance” jumps back into the Top 10 at No.8. Another BDO act that re-enters the Top 10 is Lily Allen and her album “It’s Not Me, it’s You”, back at No.10.
Owl City jump up ten places to No.15 with their album “Ocean Eyes”, followed at No.16 by “Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel”, up six places this week. Florence + The Machine played Sydney late last week, and are a part of the Laneway Festival which is touring the country this week. Their album “Lungs” recently went back to No.1 in the UK, and this week it’s up twenty-nine places to No.19, three places lower than its original peak.
Kasabian are up eighteen places to No.23 with “West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum”, Lisa Mitchell is up eleven places to No.35 with “Wonder”, Passion Pit are up nineteen places with their “Manners” album to No.39, and up a massive thirty-five places to No.46 is Calvin Harris’ album “Ready for the Weekend”, helped by his BoilerRoom appearances at the Big Day Out.
The Eels score the highest new entry of the week at No.49 with their eighth album “End Times”. It’s their sixth Top 50 entry, having last charted in June 2009 reaching No.35 with their seventh album “Hombre Lobo”, their highest charting so far. The other Top 50 entry comes in at No.50, Motion City Soundtrack with their fourth album “My Dinosaur Life”, becoming their first Top 50 entry, beating the No.52 peak of their 2007 album “Even if it Kills Me”.

I guess there is also a chance for The Bloody Beetroots - Warp being the craft&experimenters act. They have been below the Top 50 for a long time and I think recently they have been in the lower end of the iTunes Top 50.
Yeah, yours sounds right, I was thinking Art vs. Science as well, but mono36 is right I thought Art vs. Science would be classified under the EP, unless they have chose for the song to chart separately, only Bulion knows the answer to that one.
-Re Entries- Hilltop Hoods - Chase That Feeling Muse - Uprising Lisa Mitchell - Coin Laundry Powderfinger - Burn Your Name
-New Entries- Rihanna - Rude Boy Parlez vous francais? - Art vs. Science Calvin Harris - Flashback Home - Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros Selena Gomez - Naturally (can't think of a Bandslam actress, Selena came to mind though because she's Disney)
These are my guesses! I hope I am right lol
UGH! I was working for 10 minutes on these, and they've already been posted Last edited:
so that little annoying kid Justin Bieber is still in the top 50! oh no! Maybe he'll go down this week! 50? maybe?
I'm hoping Paramore's Brick By Boring Brick climbs up to the top 50 in the next couple of weeks (doubtful though). I actually bought that Sam Clark single last week so I guess me buying the song did not help the single at all!
This week I'm hoping that Vanessa's Hazardous rises, same with Sia's You've Changed.
And talking about Telephone! The song is doing very well without a video clip. It will probably crack top 3 when the video clip is released. Last edited:
I'm really curious to see these new accreditations. They must be a major change as bulion doesn't mention it specifically. I'm not surprised when I heard some of the post christmas sales like both Fireflies & Tik Tok selling over gold records (35,000) worth in 1 week.
BTW: Thanks Kev on another post for that info. Last edited:
NEW ENTRY - 48 (up from 64) - HOME Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
* Whistling seems to be making a comeback (not that it was ever big!!), as this song has been splashed across the Nova network as a new summer song, it becomes the only song in the Top 100 for Shock Records.
NEW ENTRY 40 (to the Top 100) - FLASHBACK Calvin Harris
* Calvin Harris scores his second highest charting single in Australia helped by his Big Day Out Boiler Room performance and solo parties. His highest charting single is "The Girls" which hit No.33 in August 2007.
* His album "Ready for the Weekend" jumps up 35 places to No.46 this week (it originally peaked at No.39).
RE-ENTRY 36 (up from 79) - ART VS. SCIENCE (EP) Art vs. Science (former No.49 peak)
* No.5 in sales this week, and the EP features the Triple J Hottest 100 No.2 single of 2009 "Parlez Vous Francais", and now the EP in it's 24th week in the Top 100 finally breaks into the Top 40. Last edited:
I just had a look, and it seems I'll have to amend the fact that Art vs Science is a re-entry and not a new entry. I did now check it and it did hit No.49 last year. Parlez vous Francais is the main track off the Art vs Science EP
* #9 on the J's 100, and up almost 30 places this week, plus the BDO headliners jump up to a new overall peak with their other charting track (more of that later on), plus their album also goes back into the Top 10, and their "Black Hole..." album re-enters. All those placings later on...
All I know Mono is that she needs to release 'Blind' at some stage. She'll need to slow things down and that's the best one to be released if thats the case. Drug will probably be released as it was the next best.
3rd - Your Love Is My Drug 4th - Blind 5th - Take It Off/Kiss 'N' Tell
NEW PEAK 5 up 11 from 16 - LITTLE LION MAN Mumford & Sons ▲
* Triple J's Hottest 100 No.1 for 2009 winner breaks it's hold on No.16, and jumps straight into the Top 5. All of their stuff bullets this week, also helped by them being in the country for the Lane Festival's in cities
I think Ke$ha will release a ballad as teh next single.Im predicting she will release Animal as the nest single as Your Love Is My Drug sounds like Blah Blah Blah,so you need your space through songs,and you need a ballad which people will fall in love with and then be ready for a new upbeat song again.
Great to see LLM chart so high. I picked it a #9 so far exceeded my expectations. I suspect now it was borderline top ten without the jjj win, as there were two versions charting around 14 and 24 put together would have already placed it about #10.
it has a physical this week though which i think will keep it in the top 10.
7-10 is gonna be hard to predict this week

No, for the last two weeks, Sam had been performing three times daily at the theme parks in Queensland and presumably selling singles there. Before those two weeks he'd already dropped out of the top fifty, then with that he re-entered. Now that gig is over, he's out of the top fifty again. It's a shame, but at least he charted for a couple of weeks.

Rock That Body drops to #17 Memories moves up to #3 Rude Boy is up to #15 (though it's done this over the week) The little shit's 'Baby' is #21 Tik Tok Parody is #14 so there should be a shake up for next weeks chart and predictions as these songs are climbing/falling hard.
and the 'WTF' position goes to Black Eyed Peas for their 'showdown' which is at #22!!!
why has this happened ^ it's not a single Last edited:
The good thing about that show though is, that when it gets to the top 20 or whatever, the songs they preform to move up on itunes. Isn't that the reason why songs like 'Halo' & 'Jai Ho' cracked the top 10 on itunes?
I know they would have eventually cracked it, but as soon as they were performed, the next day the songs moved up to the top 10. Last edited:
