Forum - Other Charts: Australia - Non ARIA - Unofficial Catalogue Singles Chart Pt. 5

Part 4: http://www.australian-charts.com/forum.asp?todo=viewthread&id=58076

If you are new to the thread, or not new, it might help to have a rundown. Every Sunday at midday, I record the current iTunes top 200 and the weekly Spotify chart, and sort together the highest songs on both of them (giving Spotify the edge on ties because it's honestly far more relevant). As that is usually less than 100 songs and this is 100 songs, I fill the rest of the slots with the oldest songs on the Spotify chart left over after that. The Bubbling Under chart lists the top 20 next newest songs on the Spotify chart that haven't yet appeared on this chart.

Week 210 (13/10/2019)

As for this week's chart, Lizzo continues her monopoly on both iTunes and Spotify. Her slight threat by the way of "Someone You Loved" potentially debuting any week is now averted because "Good As Hell" is ahead of that on Spotify now. Not that it's very close to the chart still, whose cut off still sits around where it was 7 months ago, with "lovely" as the newest song on this chart. This week Stevie Nicks nearly outpeaks Fleetwood Mac's entire catalogue with a big re-entry for "Edge Of Seventeen" at #5. OneRepublic have been in the country lately, and in its 50th week, "Counting Stars" finally breaks the top 10 at #8. The Screaming Jets are finally getting somewhere with "Better" newly peaking at #16, and Lizzo may have a different Capaldi threat as it seems "Bruises" is getting a serious push, with a slight new peak this week at #24. But wait, there's more new peaks. Tame Impala continue their massive uptick on "The Less I Know The Better" which is now newly top 50 at #44. Hall & Oates usually rely on the Spotify chart as well, but a strong iTunes showing this week gets "You Make My Dreams" also in the top 50 now at #47. Ed Sheeran also has an iTunes boon for "Supermarket Flowers" re-entering at a new peak of #61. As for new entries, Dr. Hook get their first ever with "Sharing The Night Together" at #19. Being featured in the Joker film means that the public now bizarrely are making time for Gary Glitter again, as he enters at #52. Former remixing hitmakers Hippie Sabotage have a Tiktok meme with "Devil Eyes" which enters at #68. Perhaps showing that last week's massive influx for "Over The Rainbow" was the result of mass Scrubs-watching, we now have further proof as Colin Hay's acoustic version of the best Men At Work song enters at #65. Fatboy Slim gets his first ever main chart entry with "Right Here, Right Now", and the death of Ginger Baker gives Cream their first entry with "Sunshine Of Your Love".

I'm not entirely sure why, but this week has been a big flushing out of the Spotify chart. Naturally this means that super old songs are unaffected, but stuff that's about a year old generally is. So a little sooner than I'd have expected, we lose "Pure Water", and so Drax Project are back. Dean Lewis also just barely holds on for another week, while Hilltop Hoods are looking a bit shaky as well. "Shallow" and "Without Me" continue to rack up monstrous amounts of weeks and also continue to be nowhere near the cutoff for this week.

20/10/2019 (Week 211)

We continue to live in Lizzo's world, as she has been #1 for 22 of the last 23 weeks with her two songs. "Truth Hurts" might be on the way out but it's still a long way ahead of any non-Christmas future threats. This week's highest threats are fairly bizarre. Ronan Keating returns with "Summer Wonderland" which once charted on a Christmas week, and matches the exact peak of "When You Say Nothing At All". Just behind him is US country song "I Loved Her First", which once entered the Bubbling Under chart for Heartland. There's a return of the Spotify guard with less iTunes entries blocking, so Benny Blanco & Dean Lewis are back in the top 10. Eastside is the newest song in this chart, and is lucky that "Groceries" and "Murder On My Mind" are closely outside of the top 200 this week. These returning tracks just narrowly keep out a fast rising Lewis Capaldi, now up to #11. He's eligible on iTunes but is higher on Spotify for the moment. The only other Spotify new peak is again Tame Impala's "The Less I Know The Better", now at #41. New peaks on iTunes come for "Jack and Diane" and "Black Betty", and it's quite a good week for Mellencamp as his long Bubbling Under runner "Hurts So Good" has finally made the main chart.

The Bubbling Under chart continues to be stuck in place, except not quite this week! Joji is having another run with "SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK", and though it's impossible to know if it'll stick this time, having not been in the chart in months, it's now old enough to take the top spot on the Bubbling Under chart. It's ahead of "Shallow" and "Without Me" continue to extend their record. Several songs continue to be very volatile as "Leave Me Lonely" drops down to #194, and it's still ahead of "Old Town Road", "Don't Call Me Up" and "Pure Water" which are all barely hanging on. Dean Lewis would be pushed out already but he does leave the chart again.

iTunes songs: 43
Spotify songs: 57

I assume that's meant to be 2018 as the release year on the Joji track in the Bubbling Under chart.
Cheers, I so rarely have to add new ones that my mind wasn't switched on when I did.
27/10/2019 (Week 212)

Lizzo's reign continues strongly, however there may be some threat coming sooner than expected now, and that threat is courtesy of Lizzo herself, but not in the way it was last time. The new remix of "Good As Hell" is now eating away at the market share for the song, and so it's been pushed aside rather suddenly. We'll have to see in the coming weeks how that turns out though. There's some fairly regular company in the top 10 for the most part, with the exception of Lewis Capaldi who indeed does climb into the top 10 for the first time this week. Interestingly it's been a Spotify-based chart run for all 16 weeks before this, but now "Bruises" is higher on iTunes, despite not being the main song of his being pushed on radio at the moment ("Hold Me While You Wait" is higher on iTunes but that actually is a 2019 track). Meanwhile the 2018 dam is close to capacity yet again, as the #1 Bubbling Under track is next in line this week (Khalid's "Better" has also charted before but is slightly newer). It's a relatively quiet week with just 3 new peaks. The first is the usual as of late upward progress for Tame Impala, as "The Less I Know The Better" now sneaks through into the top 40 for the first time at #38. The Chainsmokers & Coldplay also see a new peak for "Something Just Like This", and Berlin have their occasional entrant "Take My Breath Away" now up to #47. The new entries are a major mixed bag as we have an old INXS cover by Paloma Faith, a club classic from Nightcrawlers, and a modern anthem from Chance The Rapper. The most noteworthy action in terms of dropouts is that Hayden James' "Just Friends" departs from the Spotify top 200 for the first non-Christmas week ever, having shown remarkable longevity for the past 18 months.

Unlike last week, Joji was in fact very close to making the chart this week, and it makes it even more unfortunate for him that he might not stick around, with Kanye's new album perhaps being partly responsible for taking up space on the chart. This extends the already rather absurd runs of "Shallow" and "Without Me" but maybe they'll get their chance relatively soon. Otherwise it's been a busy week with many of the lower stragglers finally succumbing. Possibly with more to come as "Close To Me" is starting to slide fairly fast now. This gives some space for new peaks but also new entries, as we dive further into January 2019's rather lucrative hit production. J. Cole gets his 3rd ever entry with "MIDDLE CHILD" still going strong, while Spotify anomaly Lauv hopes for another entry with "i'm so tired...", which is pretty close to dropping out anyway, but considering "I Like Me Better", it would be unfair for me to ever count him out. Lastly we have Billie Eilish who is still waiting for her previous single "when the party's over" to be let in, and now dives into the next single from her album "bury a friend", but that too is looking pretty sketchy in terms of surviving, despite being a #3 chart hit. Either way, "bad guy" isn't much further down the line anyway so she'll be doing fine.

03/11/2019 (Week 213)

I made a dumb error last week by leaving out the newly eligible "This Is Me", this has been fixed so "Sweet But Psycho" had to be pushed out, but fret not, it's back in the chart this week anyway. I've also inadvertedly discovered that I twice made a blunder regarding "Enter Sandman"'s weeks on the chart. This has been amended on my spreadsheet and hopefully should remain correct going forward. I once accidentally dropped it by 2, and then much later, accidentally upped it by 10, so it's now 8 lower than it appeared.

Despite being completely absent from this chart, Kanye West has made a significant impact. His new album means 11 slots occupied on the Spotify chart, and most of those who aren't pushed off entirely, take notable hits as the iTunes equivalent is spared by comparison. This doesn't change the top 2, but it is worth noting that both of Lizzo's tracks are now higher on iTunes, "Good As Hell" in particular has taken a huge hit with the remix replacing it, which might be a gateway for Benny Blanco to get to #1 if Post Malone & Lewis Capaldi can stay out of the chart with their noteworthy singles that are on the approach. Anyhow, Kanye or otherwise, a decent chunk of songs have been pushed off of the Spotify chart, some for the first time, "The Middle", "SAD!" & "Psycho" for instance in the latter case. With less regulars, it means that after months of waiting, we're finally dipping back into the Bubbling Under chart for new entries. Unluckily for Joji he drops out, but instead of him, we have new entries from Lady Gaga, Halsey & Dominic Fike. Notably, among her many entries, "Shallow" is now Lady Gaga's equal highest entrant, alongside "Million Reasons". In a good week for Australian artists, Jarryd James scores his first ever main chart entry with "Do You Remember", and The Veronicas score a big new peak for "Untouched" at #12. Keith Urban's re-entry for "Blue Ain't Your Color" is just 1 place shy of its original peak. The only other debut this week is Donna Summer's "I Feel Love", which I would love to ironically attribute to Owl Eyes singing both it and her own similar sounding song at a show recently, but really it's because Sam Smith covered it. There's also just one other new peak this week, with Shawn Mendes' current Australian tour sending "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back" into the top 10 for the first time ever, while his stuff is generally on the uptick. Because people are possibly insane, the start of November heralds the return of "All I Want For Christmas Is You", but it remains to be seen if that's just a start of the month burst, or it will maintain similar positions for the rest of the month.

The Bubbling Under chart is having one of its most chaotic weeks because of how much of a hit the chart took, in combination with 3 newly promoted tracks. Billie Eilish is now at #1, and she & Post Malone both have now tied the record for weeks set by "Shallow" & "Without Me". Everything moves up this week, and "Dancing With A Stranger" becomes the first 2019 release to crack the top 10. All up there are 7 tracks leaving the chart this week which means 7 entering. With it is a curious mix of 2019 hits. MEDUZA & Andy Grammer have the best advantage with their singles being released a decent while before entering the charts, though the latter is dropping off fairly quickly. The Chainsmokers benefit with a recent return for "Who Do You Love". Hilltop Hoods replace their previously precarious entry with another equally precarious one, but the other entries from Khalid, Tones And I & Jonas Brothers are sitting pretty healthily on the chart at present.

10/11/2019 (Week 214)

Lizzo continues her reign while Benny Blanco holds the lazy 3rd place with no strong competition as of yet. The closest comes from people watching The Affair which perhaps provided a big source of 'oh that song' as "The Whole Of The Moon" debuts for The Waterboys at #4. Aside from regulars, Lewis Capaldi scores another new peak with "Bruises" though he may have peaked depending on whether or not the song will get a further push. In the midst of copy/pasting this chart I learnt that there's a mini-series about The Veronicas on MTV and the ad for it has "Untouched" playing, hence its re-entry last week and now a further climb to #11 this week. I suspect there isn't a similar one for Savage Garden but something has to explain "Truly, Madly, Deeply" all the way up at #15. The latest attempt to push "Last Christmas" to the top of the Christmas canon, this time via a movie of the same name, is at least working this week as it's ahead of Mariah this week. A big influx for The Black Eyed Peas sees a new peak for "Pump It", while the only other is the continuing saga of Tame Impala's "The Less I Know The Better". Debuts are a bit more busy. In an exciting twist, seemingly propelled both by his new music and a Tiktok meme, Frank Ocean has his highest ever chart position here with the wonderful "Chanel" at #29, he's previously made the top 50 with "Thinkin Bout You", "Lost" & "No Church In The Wild". Future potential Eurovision candidate Vanessa Amorosi comes close, surprisingly only now debuting with "Absolutely Everybody", 9 places lower than she first charted with "Perfect". The Byrds have their first ever entry with "Turn! Turn! Turn!", and unsurprisingly, so do The Buggles with "Video Killed The Radio Star". Maybe the biggest surprise is that Janet Jackson has never appeared on this chart before, and does so with "Together Again" at #34, I can't wait for the general public to read all of my latest EOY list. Dan + Shay & Dua Lipa both have re-entries buoyed by new hits, the former is coming on 2 years of age so they could see further wind if their iTunes success holds. I thought all the stuff pushed out by Kanye last week would return, but it seems there's been enough new stuff along the way that everything continues to be pushed down. Most notably, KIAN's "Waiting" has left the Spotify chart for the first time ever.

Bubbling Under action is relatively light as none of the anticipated re-entries actually happened. The latest exploit of a very belated hit is Kaash Paige's "Love Songs" which made its debut to the Spotify chart already reaching its anniversary this month. Nothing is pushed out because this is all balanced by The Chainsmokers dropping out. Drax Project are most at risk of leaving at the moment while it's also noteworthy to mention that "Sunflower" & "when the party's over" have beaten the longevity record on the chart with 25 weeks.

17/11/2019 (Week 215)

It's the second half of 2019 and Lizzo is #1, this is typical business. She had a closer call for the #2 slot, where "Truth Hurts" has returned to being higher on Spotify than iTunes, but also just nearby it was "The Whole Of The Moon" proving more than a one week wonder, it even made the top 40 digital tracks for the week. We may be in the last gasp for fresh songs to make a dent on the chart this week as Christmas is getting ready to take over, and before that we've a relatively light iTunes week to bring the cut off just shy of its previous best, just "3 Nights" is caught in limbo between charting & bubbling. "Shallow" fairs the best from this, improving on its previous position to #5 with weaker competition. After a slump last week, Mariah Carey shoots into the top 10 with "All I Want For Christmas Is You". This week is a massive series of near misses so "Shallow" is one of only three new peaks. "Dumb Things" is being used on an ad and nearly gets a new peak. So are "Angel Of The Morning" and "Freaks" while I'm at it. Journey match their previous peak of #30 with "Don't Stop Believin'". The other new peak comes from a U2 tour bringing a new high for "With Or Without You", as well as one of only 2 debuts on the chart, from "One". The other debut comes from what could be our next Lizzo situation. Doja Cat just released her second album, and if you've been watching the ARIA Chart, scored her first chart debut with "Juicy" which is on her first album. That song is not on this chart because it's the Tyga remix that's primarily contributing to its streams, unfortunately. But in another ARIA muck up, she should have had a second simultaneous debut with "Candy", also from that first album, which has no qualms about appearing here. It has climbed past "Bruises" now so it has a good chance to make the top 10 next week.

Bubbling Under hardly changes this week. Billie Eilish & Post Malone have now been there for 26 weeks, reasonably close to charting but if they don't do so soon, may have to wait until 2020. I'm not sure if it's the reason it dropped out, but weird stuff has happened with Kaash Paige's "Love Songs" on the chart recently including being replaced for at least 1 day by a soundalike. So out goes one Tiktok meme and in comes another, with 24kGoldn's "VALENTINO" finding its way into the chart now. It wasn't in the top 200 yesterday so that could just as easily go away next week as well. Lil Tecca's "Love Me" is also under serious threat, though maybe it's impressive it's been charting for so long with no active promotion.

Too tired for many words, but for the 14th week in a row, Lizzo has the top 2. As anticipated last week, Doja Cat climbs into the top 10, and just behind her is a long awaited top 10 arrival for "Let It Go" which previously peaked at #20, now that Frozen 2 is out. U2 continue their momentum with last week with a much better showing, while Little Big Town get their first ever entry with Girl Crush. A busy iTunes week brings us even closer to getting back on the 2 year benchmark, as now the newest song on this week's chart is 19 month old "Better Now".

TikTok shenanigans continue on Bubbling Under. Last week's debut "VALENTINO" is out, and in its place we have Trevor Daniel with an even older song that takes #1 away. Billie Eilish & Post Malone now notch up week 27, and buoyed by her new single, Billie returns 6 places higher than before with "bury a friend". Lil Tecca also loses "Love Me" which has been charting a decent while without proper promotion.

01/12/2019 (Week 217)

It's a pretty familiar scene at the top. After all, the top 3 places this week are occupied by the 3 longest running #1's ever on this chart, with "Good As Hell" doing its best to try and catch up to the other 2 by keeping them off. We do finally end the lengthy run of Lizzo holding the top two, as Mariah Carey rushes towards the top and nearly hit #1 this week. It remains to be seen if this is just a temporary Christmas boost on account of being the 1st of December, or if this will carry on next week. Regardless, it means that there are only 3 available weeks for Mariah to take the top spot, which is less than usual. Christmas fever hits hard in general though, oddly enough Michael Buble takes the runner up slot in these standings this time. Bobby Helms and Hall & Oates' renditions of "Jingle Bell Rock" are both relatively close to new peaks. The entire top 20 this week are top 8 peakers which strikes me as unusual. A different peculiarity this week is that for possibly the first time ever, there are no new peaks. Just two debuts as well, Aerosmith taking former bubbler "Dream On" into the main chart for the first time, and on the more modern side of things, Dua Lipa's recent Australian visit this time brings "New Rules" into the fold, which celebrated its eligibility earlier this year. The race to be the 3rd song to reach 200 weeks intensifies as "A Thousand Years" drops out of the chart, and "Happy" still hasn't returned, so "We Will Rock You" might be able to catch up if they stay out. A notable dropout is "Lost In Japan" which is a relief for me because it's always moderately bothered me that they combined it with the remix under the original name, meaning that it somewhat cheated to have a strong run here.

The cut off for entry on this week's chart was a little more standard than last week despite the ratios not changing. This is particularly worth keeping track of because Trevor Daniel has bolted up really high on the Spotify chart and would be #1 on this chart if on the chart this week. It will be interesting to see if "Falling" persists as a stable hit. Behind it, Billie & Post Malone continue to improve the WI record. Christmas music flooding the Spotify chart next week could cause a noteworthy shift, but for this week, there's just one switch, with Andy Grammer dropping out, just in time to be replaced by a random return for Lauv, who can never be predicted with this.

15/12/2019 (Week 219)

This was not an ordinary week. We're two weeks away from peak Christmas but as well as that, the remix of "Good As Hell" is now no longer being promoted on the iTunes frontpage, which has resulted in it dropping from top 10 to languishing at about #80 in a matter of a few days, but also in due process, caused the original version to be boosted a bit, enough to overtake Mariah again. Lizzo isn't #1 this week though, because the music world had a rough week, with the passing of Juice WRLD and also Roxette's Marie Fredriksson. Juice WRLD is another artist whose passing comes so devastatingly early that the vast majority of his catalogue is not eligible for this chart. The big exception is "Lucid Dreams" which was released about a year before taking off as a chart hit, and has been riding on this chart with strong persistent streams ever since I started counting them in the chart. "All Girls Are The Same" also enters as his only other entry on the main chart. It's these streams that give him a very narrow lead for the top spot. As for Roxette, they previously had charted only once, for a single week with "It Must Have Been Love". Naturally that is the highest of their entries. The rest of these couple up to be all of the duo's ARIA top 10 hits, as well as "Spending My Time". Aside from Juice WRLD & Roxette, there are just two new peaks, a big climb for Harry Styles' debut from last week, and a very not big climb for Idina Menzel's concerning cover choice. Spotify's promotion of people's most listened songs in the past week has caused general climbs for most of the regular songs here, which are prone to benefit from such a thing, sliding most of the Christmas music down a little. Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years" becomes the 3rd song to reach 200 weeks on the chart, and there is also one other debut, with one of I can only imagine hundreds of versions of "O Fortuna" that has risen above said pack. We are closer than ever before to having the chart back to the 2 year time frame, as XXXTENTACION's 21 and a half month old "SAD!" is the newest song here, pretty much the same cut off we had back in February.

That cut off only serves to make Juice WRLD's passing even more unfortunate in the context of this chart. A month ago, many of his songs could have crept into the chart because the cutoff was more lenient, but this week, he takes up the entire top 3. If not for all of these songs, there'd even be space for "Robbery" as well. "Sunflower" is now on a record breaking (for this era) 30 weeks but it's down to #7, and Hilltop Hoods re-enter with "Leave Me Lonely" no higher than it was 2 months ago when it last appeared.

22/12/2019 (Week 220)

This week is particularly noteworthy for a meta perspective. I'm not sure if I described it properly before, but my ideal of a 2 year significance has always been part of this thread, just without enough data to maintain it properly. That is not the case this week as for the first time ever since I started following, there are 100 songs which are over 2 years old in the top 200s on iTunes and Spotify, in fact there are more than 100, which means that we return to the old format, and only the 100 highest get to go on through. Tremendously good news means that Calum Scott gets booted from this chart even though he hung on at #200 on the Spotify chart. It's also unlucky for among others, "Confidence" & "God's Plan", which have been on the chart ever week since I allowed them, but are now just 1 month too new to appear. Normally this would be the last Christmas week, but since Spotify's data for next week's chart covers Christmas day, we should have a peculiar chart next week. So Mariah has scored her 2nd week and is pretty on lock to get a 3rd week. Disruptions in the top 10 come from 17 & 38, can I get a 'yeaaaaaah baby', as Billie Eilish has done the cursed karaoke and "ocean eyes" is back to #5, while this chart happened just after Gravy Day so Paul Kelly climbs the ranks quite a lot to #7, probably just for this week. Regarding Spotify, it's responsible for the majority of Christmas new peaks as it has a distinctly different canon to iTunes. Michael Buble, Andy Williams, Justin Bieber, Bobby Helms & Frank Sinatra all climb into the top 20 because of this. Bee Gees are unrelated to this with a new top 20 berth for "To Love Somebody". Spotify also brings new entries, some of which charted in the ARIA top 50 last year without actually making this chart before, namely the Jackson 5, Burl Ives & Elton John, but maybe we also have future ARIA hopefuls from Kelly Clarkson & Nat King Cole. Pretenders have a good week on iTunes with their Christmas staple "2000 Miles" just sneaking in. Unrelated to all of this is Vanessa Amorosi scoring her highest ever entry, and now her 3rd one week wonder "Shine", and also Dido lands with "Here With Me".

I suspect Juice WRLD could have stuck around for longer if not for it being December, as he loses his top two on the Bubbling Under chart this week. He's still #1 with "Legends", and as an added bonus, the new vacancies allow "Robbery" to get through. After finding a bad week to re-enter on, this time around Hilltop Hoods do get a top 10 peak with "Leave Me Lonely", but all of this doesn't matter for the time being as none of these are anywhere close to the chart this week, nor will whatever scraps remain on next week's chart.

Week 221 (29/12/2019)

The catalogue chart will never more closely resemble the official chart than now. Though iTunes is mostly past Christmas fever (although I saw as recently as tonight that "All I Want For Christmas Is You" was still top 200 on iTunes), Spotify is almost nothing but it. This has effectively cleaned the slate of almost everything else because even stuff that wasn't pushed out of the chart outright, isn't high enough to make the chart because this week you need to be at least #163 on one of these charts to make it in here. We have a wholly Christmas based top 10 with the exception of Lizzo who is remarkably high on iTunes to only land at #6 here, but she's in a good position to take the #1 spot next week. Band Aid get slightly higher than ever before with "Do They Know It's Christmas?" at #4, while Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams & Michael Buble get new top 10 berths. They're followed by 9 more new peaks just outside the top 10. With debuts we're seeing the full range of songs that don't light up the iTunes chart, but do for Spotify, many of which were charting hits either this year or last year. One notable exception to all of this is a debut for Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe". A lot of 2010s mega hits are experiencing a big rebound on iTunes currently and this might be part of that. Not surprising given the context of this week, but there are several first time dropouts this week, namely 2017 hits in "Shape Of You", "Meant To Be", "Jocelyn Flores", "HUMBLE.", "Body" & "Young Dumb & Broke".

A big effect of this week is a drastic impact on the Bubbling Under chart that will likely last for just this week, so you could consider this a preview for the caliber of songs that are waiting in the wings, given that they all held up well enough to hold in the chart this week, but it's likely many of them will take a while to actually get back in, let alone in the chart. In the midst of this, Trevor Daniel returns to #1, "Sunflower" & "when the party's over" are now up to 32 weeks on the chart, and Lewis Capaldi's very high charting "Someone You Loved" now resides in the top 5. Entering the chart this week includes massive smash hits in "bad guy" and now the remix of "Old Town Road", some more moderate hits advantaged by taking a while to become hits like "Castles" & "The Git Up", and applying to neither of these cases is "If I Can't Have You" & "Vossi Bop". One to definitely watch is Joel Corry's "Sorry", which will likely become an ARIA top 50 hit this week, so it could hang around for quite a while if it sticks the landing. Regardless, we'll likely be seeing a lot of older hits hanging around for a decent while into 2020, so it may take some time for any new promotions. I'm especially interested to see how things look without the Christmas music factor.

Week 222 (05/01/2020)

This week nearly broke my spreadsheet. I store my Bubbling Under chart 80 cells below the main chart so I can fit the dropouts in the middle. This week there were 75 dropouts so I can only barely fit it without having to adjust my entire spreadsheet. As expected, Lizzo has an easy ride back to #1 with "Good As Hell", though "Truth Hurts" has lost a few slots to only climb to #5 now. 11 years ago, Jessica Mauboy had an unfortunately named hit single right around when Australia was in a particularly nasty bushfire season, now in 2020, she's part of the all star cover of "I Am Australian" which is being bought in solidarity to Australia's firefighters. It charted once for Australia Day, and now it's much higher at #2. If it can maintain its current sales, it could take the #1 spot. Alongside a lot of usual suspects, Lewis Capaldi makes an interesting return to the top 10, because "Bruises" has been largely bolstered by Spotify streams, but lately is riding higher on iTunes now. Procol Harum have a big new peak for "A Whiter Shade Of Pale", and just behind them is a long awaited top 20 peak for Hall & Oates' "You Make My Dreams", which is lately in the bottom half of the chart nearly every week, but never got higher than #47. No longer interrupted by Christmas music, Bee Gees also get a new peak with "To Love Somebody" at #13. Less lucky is The Chainsmokers who merely match their old peak with "Closer", though just behind it is a new peak for "Something Just Like This". More 2010s hits in "Call Me Maybe" and "One Dance" also score new peaks. There are just 3 debuts this week, out in front is the song that couldn't be more aptly named because this chart was made on a Sunday in the summertime, so The Sundays get their first ever entry. Like often, Calum Scott is scraping into the chart with his Robyn cover, but recently has become eligible also with "You Are The Reason", which is doing on iTunes what the former is doing on Spotify. Just behind is Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa's 2018 hit "One Kiss", which until this week, left the chart permanently while it was right at the top of the Bubbling Under chart. We've returned the cut off point into 2018 again, which means some familiar faces return, while Anne-Marie's "2002" is the newest song here, more than 9 months after it initially made the chart.

I never wrote anything else.

Week 223 (12/01/2020)

Though she'd slipped a bit last week, Lizzo is now unquestionably in control again with "Good As Hell" at #1. Last week's surprise #2 retains it but with lower standing, while "Truth Hurts" is close to retaining its rightful #2 position. It is possible that over the following weeks we're going to see a big shift into 2020 music and thus a dumping of older stuff (apart from the really big hits of course). That's already at least showing itself this week as the cut off point has stepped several months forward, bringing the return of several songs that have been missing from the chart for over a month, notably "Eastside", "Happier" & "Be Alright" among many others. The Bubbling Under chart remains unaffected by this though, so new entries are on the low side. All we get courtesy of Spotify is a debut for Juice WRLD's "Legends", finally able to appear on a more lenient cut off mark. On the iTunes spectrum, Belinda Carlisle gets through with former bubbler "Summer Rain", while Martin Garrix has a more recent entry with "Scared To Be Lonely", his 2nd ever entry after "Animals". New peaks are also scarce, but Smash Mouth manage it with "All Star", and Imagine Dragons cap off a big week on iTunes with a new peak for..."Warriors" of all things which hasn't charted in years.

We're very close to seeing some action again from the Bubbling Under chart. I believe there were only two songs between "Soaked" and getting into the main chart, which is of course very noteworthy also because Trevor Daniel is primed for a big splash if he can get in behind her. The revival of Lil Nas X & Mabel is short lived, so Hilltop Hoods & Juice WRLD both return, though maybe won't have a likely chance of getting to the main chart.

Week 224 (19/01/2020)

If you feel like this time of the year is a total standstill on the charts, know that this week has a very clear trend outwards for older tracks that have been boosted recently. This is impossible to make sense of in the context of this chart, but effectively new stuff is taking over on Spotify, and it'll only exacerbate further in the next couple of weeks with some big albums and the Hottest 100. The main result this week is that Lizzo has by some ways, one of her clearest wins for the #1 spot here, given that "Good As Hell" is the only eligible song charting on either top 50. But in another way, it's her closest, because she would have been narrowly defeated by Trevor Daniel this week, except that "Falling" is 1 day too new to make the cut off this week. That's right, for another week, the cut off has been pushed forward, and now "Without Me" is the newest song on the chart. It is perhaps telling of how much the standards have changed that Drake's "God's Plan" became 2 years old today with 46 weeks on the chart. Even if you count the weeks before I allowed it to be eligible, it means it's only missed 7 weeks since its first birthday, by comparison "Eastside" has already missed 15. Continuing to have a big digital resurgence, Carly Rae Jepsen now has a top 10 peak with "Call Me Maybe", amidst some regular faces. We have 4 debuts this week, all of which can be in some way attributed to TikTok. Firstly Matthew Wilder's "Break My Stride" is apparently taking off on there, setting a new standard for how old a TikTok song can be. The song previously made the Bubbling Under chart a long time ago. Next we have noted TikTok beneficiary Arizona Zervas, whose "ROXANNE" was relatively fresh when it took off, so don't expect to see it here any time soon. However, he is the latest artist to have an even older song pushed in its steed, so "FML" enters at #54. There's another direct TikTok meme of a song that's already a couple years old with Likybo's "Kraazy", and lastly we have the loosest connection just because I imagine the TikTok influenced success of "Glitter" is at least making some effort towards keeping "Soaked" in the chart for BENEE. Indeed, after all this time it's finally made it onto the main chart, though not in a favourable place. Still it's nice to see it in some manner of an Australian top 100 chart. The main big news this week is Elton John's local tour, which sees a big handful of re-entries for him. Notably "Crocodile Rock" scores a new #40 peak.

We've only made the most minor dip into the Bubbling Under chart because we're not at a new threshold at all, "Soaked" just hadn't been available when we last dipped into September 2018. For instance, "3 Nights" is still in limbo between the two charts. Still, Trevor Daniel has a big #1 contender if "Falling" is able to let loose into the chart, which is unlucky for Post Malone & Lewis Capaldi should they get slotted in behind him with their still very high ranked tracks. There aren't really many new peaks either this week, just "Going Bad" & "Swervin'" getting 1 place higher than before. The most noteworthy action this week is a debut for Lizzo. It feels oddly appropriate that despite getting decent attention upon release, it's taken until it's over a year old for "Juice" to finish a week on the Spotify chart, making it only roughly 8 months newer than "Truth Hurts" was when that took off. It's being helped by her recent visit though so it might not be able to stick around.

26/01/2020 (Week 225)

This week is a mess. We should be returning to normality following Christmas, except this week could not at all be considered normal. Firstly, it falls on Australia Day, resulting in quite a bit of Australian returns to the iTunes chart. Secondly, it's a day after the Hottest 100, which results in almost nothing impacting this chart directly due to the nature of the countdown, but it takes up a lot of real estate in the iTunes chart resulting in fewer entries. Lastly, we had new albums from Eminem & Mac Miller doing the same thing just on the Spotify chart. So we have far less on the iTunes chart than usual, and thus a big share from Spotify but with a lot of potential entries booted out. In short, 15 songs from last week's Bubbling Under have charted this week, which includes a new #1 from Trevor Daniel and "Falling". He's not especially far ahead of Lizzo so it's not a done deal, especially since she seems to be showing gains since. The much longer waiting, much bigger hits from Lewis Capaldi, Post Malone & Swae Lee enter the top 5. It'll be tough for them to get much higher than they are now though, if they even stay on the chart for long. MEDUZA at least have a Hottest 100 boost en route but it'll be even harder for them to stay on the chart as "Piece Of Your Heart" isn't even a year old yet. With this much reach, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish & Post Malone go through two singles at once with their debuts. J. Cole gets a new highest entry to date with "MIDDLE CHILD", and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie gets his first. Subtlely mixed in with these debuts is Surfaces' "Sunday Best", which was released in January last year and just entered the Spotify chart via TikTok notoriety on this timely week to instantly debut. The only non-iTunes debut is from Fatboy Slim's "Praise You", which might be helped by his upcoming tour or it could also be because the song was playing on triple j's promos for their Double J Hottest 100 replay. Australia Day canon is so set in its place and unchanging that there's only one new peak there with "I Still Call Australia Home". Other new peaks include Halsey boosted by her album with "Without Me" at #14, Matthew Wilder's "Break My Stride" carrying its TikTok virality to a new peak. The Weeknd's "Starboy" has recently been charting via Spotify, but this week it's iTunes that gets it to a nice #69 peak. Notably, "Thunder" leaves the chart for the first time ever this week.

The Bubbling Under dam has burst way open this week with 17 entries. Unluckily stuck behind is Juice WRLD's "Robbery" which leaps to the #1 spot. Half of the entries got in here during a similar Christmas leeway, but wedged in the middle of those is Ruel's "Painkiller" which was outside of the chart that week. Two massive hits released on the same day are "Dance Monkey" & "I Don't Care" entering for the first time. Any watchers of the Spotify chart will notice a lot of Australian hip hop that doesn't make the ARIA Chart but spends a very long time on the chart. For once, one of those actually gets into here with Hooligan Hefs' "No Effect". Lil Tecca charted last year with "Love Me", and now "Ransom" has been around long enough to get in too. Sam Feldt's inexplicably never going away "Post Malone" is currently still peaking on Spotify and has spent so long being forced by playlists that it's now here too. While lastly we have 3 hits released on the same day, maybe not sitting in the order you'd expect with Y2K & bbno$, Guy Sebastian & Katy Perry rounding out this week.

It's very unclear what's coming as we seem to be stuck in all manner of confusing shifts. After last week's big step forward, it's a bit of a step back this week, but there are still 2019 songs on the chart this week. That of course means everything from 2018 gets pushed in, so Trevor Daniel holds the #1. Also with those later 2018 tracks, "Sunflower" manages to sneak out a new peak since last week's #4 dropped out completely, and Billie Eilish gets a big jump with "when the party's over" largely in reaction to the Grammy Awards. Just barely making the cut off for this week is Surfaces who make a big climb with "Sunday Best", which looks to be chasing the top 5 pretty soon. There are also minor new peaks for Arizona Zervas & Ariana Grande, and a big jump for Post Malone's "Wow." courtesy of the Hottest 100 despite it barely limping in. A very small new peak but very noteworthy one is on the iTunes side of things as Kenny Rogers gets an abnormally good week with "The Gambler", taking his #17 peak to #15 in his 168th week on the chart. Fatboy Slim's current tour (and of course hype as I approach 69 star rank in Tetris99) also gives him new peaks for "Praise You" & "Right Here, Right Now". To go back to the Hottest 100, it's not easy for it to influence this list as anything on it will always be no more than 14 months old by the time it happens, but we do actually have a debut influenced by it. In true Lizzo fashion, it took being a year old for "Juice" to hit its highest streaming figures to date, and it manages a middling spot here. The other, other big news for the week is Taylor Swift's new documentary which I've not watched but I'm fascinated by the seemingly unpredictable dividends. Aside from the usual of "Shake It Off", the other "1989" cut that scrapes through is, of all things, "Clean", and there are also the first two "reputation" tracks to enter the chart are "Getaway Car" and "...Ready For It?".

Understandably, the main Hottest 100 impact is in the Bubbling Under chart which has a bit more room for entries. Just missing out on the main chart by about a week is G Flip's first entry with "Drink Too Much". It's not the only top 10 entrant to get through though, with even less likely picks in "Better In Blak" and "Bulls On Parade". Billie Eilish gets the best of both impacts as we've got the release of her album in range, and so in addition to "bad guy", we also have "wish you were gay" and "all the good girls go to hell". The last entry is the contentious, silly one because once again the #20 spot is stuck between two songs released on the same day. Or at least that's what their street dates are because depending on your geographic placement, Lime Cordiale either did or didn't release "Inappropriate Behaviour" before Tyler, The Creator released "IGOR". However since I go by release dates and not times, they're effectively tied and so the higher ranked "EARFQUAKE" gets the final slot on this chart.

Interesting to see how the new format of the chart has its' own characteristics.

Without doing much research I'd suggest it's far more likely that a former bubbling #1 can move directly to the main #1 position. Also, while it's now possible for a track to return from the main chart to the bubbling under section, none of the songs in there are ever likely to be more than ~16 months old.

Just out of interest, has a non-iTunes charting song got to #1 yet?
Not sure if I've misinterpreted you, but it's impossible for a song to go from main chart back to bubbling under, the bubbling under chart is specifically for songs that *haven't* gotten to the main chart at all, so once they get there, even if just for a week, they can't return to bubbling under.

As for #1, it switches between the two fairly often. Right now Trevor Daniel is #1 from Spotify, while Lizzo is just narrowly behind charting on iTunes. Both of Lizzo's big hits actually started big on Spotify before eventually showing better form on iTunes. Although if you mean a song that isn't at all on the iTunes chart, that's harder to say (also not sure how to define it). Some Christmas songs got fairly high on Spotify while doing absolutely nothing on iTunes though.

Ah ok, I understand it now. Songs which have at least one week in the main chart can't appear on the bubbling under chart, even if they are only missing out due to being newer releases.

For example, if it hadn't charted at #70 last week, MIDDLE CHILD would be #2 bubbling under (by release date). Because it hit the main chart, it is now ineligible for bubbling under.

I should have explained the second part better. I meant to ask how high a song outside the iTunes top 200 (i.e. 56 of the songs this week) had managed to reach on your chart. Given that it's a combination of both iTunes and Spotify numbers, I can now see that it would be almost impossible to reach #1 without featuring on both sources.

Thanks for clarifying!
Oh, on the contrary it's totally possible. To clarify my method, if a song is charting on both iTunes & Spotify, I *only* take the higher of the two in deciding its rank here, so it wouldn't make a difference if Lizzo were #20 or #200 on Spotify. I liken Spotify to a sort of safety net, as it's less erratic than iTunes. "Bohemian Rhapsody" is charting on its iTunes performance most of the time, but sometimes it'll just have a bad day on iTunes and Spotify will keep it in the chart.

It's something I've always done with regard to multiple entries because there's no knowing how many double versions are just below the charts (nor is there a good way to combine them). And there are a lot of songs that mainly chart on one and not the other (I don't think "HUMBLE." has appeared on the iTunes chart in over a year), but usually when a song gets high on Spotify, it does at least some reasonable iTunes traction.
09/02/2020 (Week 227)

One of the least eventful charts at least on the top end. The cut off is basically the same as last week, and the top 5 is completely unchanged. The one noteworthy thing going on up here is Surfaces riding just on the edge of said cut off, and climbing up to #6 this week, with further momentum going forward. Notably in the past week, Shakira performed at the Super Bowl, and with it has a handful of entries. Former charters "Waka Waka" & "Whenever, Wherever" re-enter highly, but perhaps most noteworthy is the belated debut for "Hips Don't Lie", one of the longest running songs on the Bubbling Under chart ever. More performances along the week, Mans Zelmerlow was at the Australia Decides show and gets the highest debut of the week with his Eurovision winning song "Heroes". That's not all though because Kylie's participation in a bushfire benefit concert has given her a relatively noteworthy feat here, as "Dancing" becomes the first 2018 song to chart here through iTunes ranking, while it's also joined by another 2010s cut in "All The Lovers". Dire Straits have another former bubbler getting its due with "Walk Of Life". Meek Mill returns to the Spotify chart now eligible with "Going Bad" which makes its debut, and Alice Cooper sneaks a first ever entry with "Poison".

The Bubbling Under chart doesn't change a whole lot. I have a correction to make with Joel Corry who have been charting ahead of Lil Nas X for the last 3 weeks. Otherwise, we're just seeing last week bolters dropping back and partly replaced by songs they bumped out in the recent weeks. Probably helped by her documentary, Taylor Swift's "ME!" has managed to stay around long enough to make this chart. Every week we roll a dice and find out if Billboard delayed their charts or if all of Lewis Capaldi's stuff is climbing on Spotify again, and this week it's the latter, so "Hold Me While You Wait" has snuck back into the top 200 this week. Also after last week, rest assured that Lime Cordiale have just barely held on with "Inappropriate Behaviour" now getting into this chart.

I know it was successful during the World Cup, but I'm really surprised Waka Waka still gets better numbers than Whenever, Wherever and Hips Don't Lie 10 years later.
^ I wonder if it's like an international cultural osmosis. Like there's a generation of kids who grew up on YouTube and know "Waka Waka" as one of the most viewed videos of all time.

16/02/2020 (Week 228)

Trevor Daniel holds #1 again but is looking pretty unsteady. It seems playlists are doing a "Good As Hell" and replacing it with the Summer Walker remix, so its time may be limited. As is, he took a decent decline and only narrowly stayed ahead of Lizzo. The big thing this week is the bushfire benefit concert, although it actually hadn't really finished by the time this chart was compiled. The impact is seen though with a few artists. Conrad Sewell, Pete Murray & Daryl Braithwaite find their way into the top 10. Grinspoon get a debut for "Chemical Heart" and a new peak with "Lost Control", while Baker Boy manages to sneak in with one of only 2 eligible singles in his discography, "Marryuna" ("Mr La Di Da Di" is about 2 months too new to get in). I suspect the other debuts, including Nancy Sinatra and a 2 year old Sam Fischer song gaining traction currently, are unrelated. I now realise Alice Cooper has been touring in Australia, and so last week's debut for "Poison" vaults up to #33. Tame Impala's album was just released and "The Less I Know The Better" continues to creep up little by little to #32.

Bubbling Under this week is another run of filtering out a few more Hottest 100 entries and filling in the gaps. There's nothing new to show here this week though, as it's just Hooligan Hefs, Sam Feldt & Lil Tecca from a few weeks ago coming through. The cut off for the main chart moved back to October this week, so all of these songs are not especially close this week.

I would just like to make it clear that no matter how late I post these, it doesn't affect the data retrieval which is always on Sunday afternoon. I would like to post on time again in the near future but I have once again been very busy. This is compounded by a chart that refuses to give me a breather. The new Justin Bieber, Tame Impala & BTS albums have all done a number on the charts, absolutely hogging up positions that would otherwise be filled with mainstays, and so we've pushed waaaay forward to the point that not even 11 month old "Castles" manages to get onto the chart.

01/03/2020 (Week 230)

Sorry for the delay, just caught in another one of those weeks. I'll try to post the most recent chart tomorrow. As for this, Trevor Daniel scores a 6th straight week at #1 though the cut off date is flying backwards so his position is at risk. A lot of songs are kicked off for this reason, allowing "Sunflower" to get a new peak of #3. Surrounded by higher peaks, Nancy Sinatra gets a big new peak thanks to a commercial, while the slow crawl of "The Less I Know The Better" takes it to #23 this week. It's a pretty regular occasion to cry TikTok, and we have another one from Brent Faiyaz with "Trust", albeit one that only just barely squeezed onto this week's chart. Speaking of TikTok, Kesha, no not that song, but instead "Cannibal" has gotten a big boost to give her, her first ever lead artist entry. The only other debut comes from Peking Duk's "Stranger", while potential local hit-in-making "This City" from Sam Fischer gets a re-entry to #69.

Also to note: I retroactively took Powfu off the chart, which looks really silly considering what happened on the ARIA Chart, but I realised that I wasn't using the official street date for the single. It has been available for about a year now, but not on iTunes & Spotify, due to sample clearance. That ended up pushing Joel Corry onto the chart.

Unsurprisingly, Tame Impala's big entry from last week is short-lived, but it's conveniently replaced by another new entry, and yes, TikTok again, but also Netflix again. Ashe's now top 50 hit "Moral Of The Story" finds itself in the big opening at #1.

08/03/2020 (Week 231)

We have a change at the top for the simple reason that iTunes was absolutely cluttered this week leaving much less space than usual for Spotify entries to fill in the blanks. As such, "Falling" is no longer old enough to appear on the list, and in fact we've gone to the point that 19 month old "Happier" is the newest song here. It will be interesting to see if there's a significant impact from triple j's currently running countdown which will no doubt bring even more old songs into the fold. An interesting effect of this vacancy is that we've got two major new peaks, firstly Ed Sheeran who after over a year on the chart has now climbed a peg to #2 with "Perfect", only behind Lizzo's perpetual "Good As Hell", and Hilltop Hoods weeks on from the Bushfire concert see a big jolt to #5 for "Cosby Sweater", previously peaking at #10. Tame Impala watch continues with "The Less I Know The Better" now up to #21. Sam Fischer makes another move with "This City" which can't seem to decide if it wants to chart through iTunes or Spotify, and ABBA re-enter to new heights on "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!". Debuts this week include some first time charters, with The Pussycat Dolls riding on the wave of their comeback and get "Don't Cha" its first appearance, one more for ARIA #1 bingo. ZZ Top have also never been on the chart until this week, meaning that I may eventually forget Zerolean exists as they're no longer the bottom alphabetical entry in my archive. Someone who has charted before is Robyn, who enters with "Call Your Girlfriend" actually, though sadly she's still behind Calum Scott. Maybe triple j can rescue the situation. Tina Turner has been playing shows recently, and we get another very long running on the old Bubbling Under chart to finally show itself, as "The Best" sneaks in.

There is nothing new to report on the Bubbling Under chart as in fact it was a pretty quiet week on Spotify in general. We might see some songs pushed out by Lil Uzi Vert next week, and it's worth noting that Taylor Swift & Ali Gatie are very close to making a switch. Actually that's pretty much the only thing that happened this week, with Katy Perry overtaking Y2K for #15.

This week's lateness is mostly not my fault. I was actually keen to type this up on Sunday only for Spotify to not bother updating the weekly charts until Tuesday. Anyway here it is a day later and it's a doozy. A fascinating side product of including Spotify charts in this means that we've gotten to witness groundswell for songs that don't grab the iTunes market, but are arguably much more popular than that. "The Less I Know The Better" hasn't been top 200 on iTunes in a little over 4 years, but it's been gradually creeping up the Spotify chart...only for its huge iTunes placing taking it to the top here. So basically if I hadn't changed the chart, it would be an out of nowhere #1 debut but given that this is built on the shoulders of bubbling popularity, it being on its 37th week feels more appropriate. The Hottest 100 always has a relatively minor impact on this chart given the relative freshness of the songs, but that cannot apply to the Hottest 100 of the Decade, which is not just an influx of massively enduring songs, but close to everything on the list is eligible for this chart. We nearly had a clean sweep of the top 10 but it's interrupted by artists who incidentally made the Hottest 200, Lizzo & Juice WRLD. Though these are mostly not typical entries on this chart, there's actually a relative low number of debuts through this, just a lot of re-entries from songs that previously fluked chart entries in previous weeks. A noteworthy exception is RÜFÜS DU SOL's "Innerbloom", which made the Bubbling Under chart a while back, as it seemed to run out of random huge iTunes placings right around when it became eligible, but now it's entering at #2, with the What So Not remix also in at #64. Foster The People's long runner "Pumped Up Kicks" previously peaked at #24 and now hits #6 in week 40. For all his long running entries, Kanye West hasn't actually appeared on this chart in about 18 months, and now in only its 2nd week on the chart, "Runaway" matches the peak of "Gold Digger", and outpeaks "Ni**as In Paris". If it snuck into the top 10 we'd have a weird experience where "Clair de lune" is only the 3rd longest song in the top 10, though with "Let It Happen" also in the midst, it is the 4th longest song in the top 15. Perennial fans of lengthy songs, Gang Of Youths score the next highest debut with "Let Me Down Easy", which has been spotted in the Spotify chart occasionally recently, but never for long enough to land here. Elsewhere, we have a totally unrelated set of debuts for Patsy Cline which I think is because someone covered "Crazy" on American Idol. The other unrelated debut is Lil Uzi Vert's "XO TOUR Llif3", partly because of his new album and also partly because it was heavily interpolated on said album. But I also insist it's a 2010s classic rightfully belonging here.

Almost nothing changes on the Bubbling Under chart with the exception that Katy Perry has once again climbed ahead of another song, this time Guy Sebastian's "Choir". A lot of these songs are on the brink of dropping out of the top 200, and with the Hottest 100 impact hitting Spotify next week, it could be a messy time on this particular chart.

This week could have been a pretty open and shut case...and indeed it was just not for the expected reason. Because less than 24 hours before I compiled this list, news broke that Kenny Rogers passed away, and if you've been following this chart, you'll know he's quite a presence here, at least with one song. More than 80% of the time, "The Gambler" is somewhere on this chart, usually on the lower end as it was oft noted for being one of the particularly long chart runners without much of a chart peak of note. That all changes this week as it takes the clear crown this week and will almost certainly be the biggest digital track of the entire week not that ARIA include that on their website anymore. This is obviously the longest climb ever to #1 on its 189th week, but it's also the oldest song to be at #1 in that perspective too, the next highest being Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" which spent its most recent week at #1 on its 175th week overall. Incidentally, there wasn't any room for that particular song on the iTunes chart and so it would have dropped out of this chart if not for its Spotify safety net, though that too was not a particularly strong showing. I'm also fairly certain that Kenny Rogers has set another record this week, as his Dolly Parton duet "Islands In The Stream" actually was charting last week, at the inauspicious #100 spot. Much like Taylor Swift on the Billboard Hot 100 last week, it vaults up 98 places this week to #2. These are the only Kenny Rogers songs that have ever charted here, so the rest are all debuts, as he takes up almost the entire top 15, save for last week's #1 from Tame Impala which would otherwise be blitzing the competition again this week. Dolly Parton seems to have been caught up in this upswell as well as "Jolene" and "9 To 5" enter at what are probably their highest ever iTunes positions to nearly score new peaks, though one time charter "Here You Come Again" does get one. There also seems to be a lot of mournfulness in general that may or may not be connected to COVID-19 (stay inside please). I'm only certain it's responsible for "Imagine", "My Sharona" & long R.E.M. title getting in, but we also have the likes of "We Are The World", a frequent bubbler only just now entering, and seemingly somehow, "The Last Post" and "I Was Only 19". As the Hottest 100 impacts the Spotify chart this week, the inexplicably popular on that platform "1955" returns at a new peak this week, while "Redbone" also scores a new peak. J. Cole does not score a new peak but makes a claim for possibly the lowest scoring 2 week charter on my points system as "No Role Modelz" has now twice appeared at #99. Mumford sans Sons has released a cover of Gerry and the Pacemakers for charity, and their original "You'll Never Walk Alone" scores a new peak this week. Lastly, following closely after a debut for "Castles" and also Delta Goodrem's song of the same name, Freya Ridings' breakout UK hit "Lost Without You" pops in here, given it was released in 2017, it's not impossible that it's getting some sort of push here, so this is either a random blip, or the start of something big, because this song was far more successful than "Castles" was over there.

A big influx into the Spotify chart means a lot of stuff is booted out, which is very much the case this week. With The Weeknd's new album hitting next week, it's not gonna be easy for these songs to return, but in fairness, they're all very far away from the chart this week, as the combination of Kenny Rogers & the Hottest 100 means that 97 of this week's top 100 are actually over 2 years old ("Shotgun" was only 1 day away too), and the newest song on this chart, like it was about 12 months ago, is "lovely". But the Bubbling Under chart rolls on, and it's also where I reveal another mistake as I've been overlooking Don Toliver's "No Idea" this entire time, which mostly just kicks out "You Need To Calm Down" for all of its 4 weeks but also removes a week for Katy Perry's "Never Really Over" too. Taylor Swift thus gets to properly debut this week, joined by Drake's day newer "Money In The Grave", and some more massive hits from Shawn Mendes & Marshmello.

29/03/2020 (Week 234)

Kenny Rogers was so far ahead that he remains as such for another week, putting forward the notion that no matter what time of week he did pass away, he would have ended up at #1 on this chart. His placings in the top 10 interrupt what could have been a terrific unlikely circumstance where Tame Impala would be knocked off #1 by a man named Trevor, as the cut off has been pushed well forward again to allow "Falling" back on the chart. This is its first time on the chart not at #1. Adhering to Gang Of Youths' wishes, many people are putting on some Whitesnake, allowing "Here I Go Again" to score a new peak. It's one of only 2 new peaks this week, the other being Sam Fischer who continues to climb with "This City". Debuts are aplenty however. Janis Joplin scores her first ever entry with "Me and Bobby McGee", and that's not alone because Kris Kristopherson's cover also charts. Stevie Wonder's birthday is not until May, but his perennial birthday staple (at least from my perspective) enters quite high at #19. I have been told that Kim Petras's "Heart To Break" was used on Drag Race and it's very well timed to do so because it only became eligible a month ago, and enters at #70. The Police sneak in with thanks to a deadly virus, but we have severely mixed signals with Tammy Wynette debuting just behind them.

The most noteworthy thing on the Bubbling Under chart this week is that "EARFQUAKE" dropped out. Some of last week's dropouts could potentially have come back but we've been hammered by a new Weeknd album, and since then, a new Dua Lipa album and a new 5 Seconds Of Summer album, so we are just refusing to see old company in the chart at the moment. But with nothing returning, we push forward a couple of days to arrive at Ellie Goulding's "Hate Me", yet another in a series of songs of hers whose success is owed to unpredictable circumstances, in more ways than one. Also Y2K overtakes Katy Perry again and I don't know why.

I can offer an explanation to a few of the recent risers on this chart, mostly COVID-related as you suggested earlier.

The Last Post - there have been some drastic changes to ANZAC Day commemorations this year, and I believe one idea that gained some traction was for people to play the last post at dawn on the 25th simultaneously around the country.

I Was Only 19 - I heard on a JJJ news bulletin recently that there was a parody made, presumably using an obvious substitution to the title. John Schumann was not impressed, saying it was disrespectful.

Here I Go Again - has recently been featured on a MMM ad campaign which features a giraffe trashing a hotel room.

Hot N Cold - used extensively in promos for the new Masterchef season.

Happy Birthday - this one almost makes up for the irony we missed out on re: Trevor vs. Tame Impala. Some of the recent advice over people washing their hands for 20 seconds was that it's roughly the time it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice. I'm making an assumption here, but Stevie's song probably appears first on a search for that title, resulting in an entirely different "Happy Birthday" making the chart.

Any ideas as to why The Paper Kites have made the chart? Seems an odd (but very good) one.
Ah cheers! Maybe I should have connected some of those dots but it's not always obvious whether there's a distinct non-random reason behind the entries. As for The Paper Kites, perhaps it's a symptom of its massive Spotify popularity, kind of like how Petit Biscuit's "Sunset Lover" went from huge Spotify hit to big iTunes hit last year.

Week 235 (05/04/2020)

I think you might know what to expect on this week's chart but maybe not the sheer extent that we got. Just like 2 weeks ago, this week's chart sees the passing of another music legend in Bill Withers. Though only a scarce few of his songs impacted the Australian charts in their time, he has a massive showing in his back catalogue on this week's chart, including the entire top 5 for the week. The top three are probably what you expect, but they look a little different to their streaming popularity, with "Lean On Me" taking the top spot ahead of "Ain't No Sunshine". "Lovely Day" was his only song to ever make this chart before this week, after it was featured in a TV commercial a couple years ago. So it does not actually score a new peak this week as it hit #3 back then as well. Keen chart fans would know that "Lean On Me" is one of a small handful of songs to hit #1 on the US Charts with two different artists, and in fact Club Nouveau's version also charts here. Among this massive chart take over, there's only one new peak on the chart, with Natalie Taylor's debut from last week, "Surrender" making a decent climb. Our small handful of other debuts are quite eclectic. We have a new TikTok-based hit from Pascal Letoublon, a second Dolly Parton wave bringing her version of "I Will Always Love You" onto the chart, a first time in the chart for "Folsom Prison Blues", and oddly enough, Maggie Lindemann's hit song from a few years ago, "Pretty Girl". On the note of Johnny Cash, "Hurt" re-enters for the first time in over a year, allowing it to very belatedly reach 52 weeks on the chart, with a similar case for Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight". Once again, the iTunes chart pushes this chart to its limits, and there are only 3 songs that aren't past the 2 year old mark on this week's chart. "Shotgun" actually is 2 years old now and gets a boost from its very strong iTunes showing, while "Youngblood" may be able to do the same next week. So the newest song on this week's chart is "2002", which has its 2nd birthday this month anyway.

And so yet again the Bubbling Under chart is nowhere near the bigger picture. Hooligan Hefs drop out again but are effectively replaced by the return of 5 Seconds Of Summer's "Easier" as boosted by featuring on their new album. Though usually nestled safely around the top 150, Taylor Swift's "You Need To Calm Down" mysteriously plummeted last week and may never return. Freshing pulled into the chart as a result is another Ed Sheeran song, "Beautiful People",

Week 236 (12/04/2020)

There's a certain return to normality this week. At the very least it's showed through competition waning enough to allow Kenny Rogers to return to #1. Part of this is because there's so little room for the newer songs that usually populate the upper reaches of the Spotify chart. Yet again the newest song is "2002" and that's getting dangerously close to being 2 years old anyway. Except actually it wasn't supposed to be on last week's chart because I missed a high debut for Jess Glynne's "Hold My Hand", which will explain the discrepency between this and the chart above it. In any case, it's interesting that we've gotten so close to having 100 2+ year old songs on the chart given that there isn't really a big catalyst to clog up the chart this week. It also allows for some new top 10 peaks, firstly for Natalie Taylor showing curious potential for "Surrender" at #6, and also The Bugler who bugles on now at #7. Slowly becoming a worldwide hit, Sam Fischer's "This City" is now at #15. Curiously XXXTENTACION nearly gets a new peak for "Jocelyn Flores" after over a year of lingering around. Debuts this week are plentiful. It includes some former bubblers such as "What A Wonderful World", "I Feel It Coming" and "Three Little Birds". Andrea Bocelli has a big week including a return for the duet version of "Time To Say Goodbye", but also the original version in Italian which has been on a TV ad lately. I don't know if that's the only thing going on because it also extends to the 3rd version of Ed Sheeran's "Perfect", which is actually in front of the original version oddly enough. The chart has already found itself to be an obituary of late, and this week COVID-19 finds itself in the mix as it claimed the life of John Prine, who lands an entry here. Vicetone's early 2010s track "Astronomia" incidentally apparently relates itself to a comedic viral video involving a funeral, and I have less explanation for the long since passed George Jones entering. Also one of the million soundtrack singles that Sia has recorded, "Never Give Up" sneaks in.

I actually made two mistakes last week (or at least two that I know of). "Beautiful People" was listed as a debut which is almost true except that it was one of 3 songs of particular note released on the same day. Of those 3, it's actually BENEE's "Glitter" which stands to be the highest and thus should have entered last week. Alongside it is also Kygo & Whitney Houston's version of "Higher Love". A lot of stuff was released when I was at SGDQ evidently. I just now see a 3rd mistake because I misprinted 5 Seconds Of Summer's WI also, but they inevitably vanish instantly from the chart, while Don Toliver has an arguably more abrupt shut down with "No Idea". To reiterate yet again, these songs are a long, long way away from making the chart.

If you enjoy the old format of this chart then I have great news for you as for only the 3rd time ever in the past year, the entire chart is all songs that are over 2 years old. "lovely" by Billie Eilish is lucky to have been released on April 19th, "2002" by Anne-Marie is unlucky to be released on April 20th. It's especially noteworthy because it happens this week with no particular catalyst. The previous two instances were for Christmas, and most other times we've gotten close are when a famous death brings about a multitude of entries. Then again, maybe it's really just the specter of covid-19 overlooking the chart due to all manner of impromptu performances influencing this week's chart. ANZAC Day is still a week away, but there is an unprecedented interest in this particular version of "The Last Post" which gets to #1 this week, sitting alongside several more versions (for the record, this is the first time anyone named 'James Morrison' has made this chart) of the same banger. Lee Kernaghan's contribution to ANZAC canon also does well here, now reaching #3 this week. Unrelated to my knowledge, Natalie Taylor's "Surrender" is getting a serious push as a chart song on iTunes and Spotify, and now climbs to #2 this week. In a similar sense, Sam Fischer will be one to watch next week now that Hot Hits Australia have gotten on board, replacing Tame Impala's 4 year old song with his 2 year old song. Speaking of conveniently aged tracks, last month marked 2 years since the release of Kasey Musgraves' Grammy winning album "Golden Hour", just in time for newly boosted "Rainbow" to score her a top 5 debut. Stevie Wonder now climbs up to #11, while XXXTENTACION amazingly just now scores a top 20 peak for "Jocelyn Flores". There's more early 2018 hits also with Liam Payne scoring his first ever entry courtesy of 50 Shades track "For You". Now that I've seen the meme, I totally get why Vicetone is here and climbs into the top 30 this week. There's a charity cover of "You'll Never Walk Alone" for the NHS in the UK, and the original version returns to new heights here. Grits & tobyMac bring us a rare instance of Christian rap in the chart and we've now a 2nd version of The Seekers doing "I Am Australian" this time without Judith individually credited. Bruce Rowland has two back to back entries with iconic movie themes, assumably "Jessica's Theme" lands a little higher because at least 1 person watched "Parasite" recently. On the topic of Asian media properties, I continue to be disappointed that Higurashi Abridged is no longer properly on YouTube, but its spirit lives on, as Men Without Hats' "The Safety Dance" debuts this week. Way back we've seen a cover of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" on the chart, but now The Rolling Stones' original gets in.

Bubbling Under is obviously not really anything to pay heed to as it stands, just because if this week is setting a precedent, then these songs may have to wait until the actual month and day in 2021 before they're really allowed in. And honestly I'm not sure how much we can expect out of most of these songs. Don Toliver returns to the chart to bump out Kygo & Whitney Houston, while Katy Perry again swaps places with Y2K & bbno$. Those two songs are looking particularly precarious where they stand however.

We're back where we belong, nationalism has never felt so strong. As you might expect, a chart closer to ANZAC Day means it's even more prominent, and even though this chart is supposedly made up of purchases that happened more than 24 hours after dawn service, more people are still buying this particular version of "The Last Post" than anything else. If people had immediately stopped purchasing it the way they tend to do with Christmas music, we could have seen a more bizarre turn of events. We now have a very direct reason to point at covid-19 as a reason why the chart is overflowed because last night there was the Music From The Home Front concert broadcast with about 50 Australian artists performing. The results are big, and so many songs & artists are egregiously higher than you're ever used to seeing them on the iTunes chart, and thus this chart. The biggest dividends go to, of all things, "Moments" by Bliss N Eso at #2 here. After narrowly missing out on an entry earlier this year with "Drink Too Much", G Flip smashes through with her narrowly eligible "About You" at #5. Vance Joy & Jack River follow Bliss N Eso's lead with 2017 singles "Lay It On Me" and "Fool's Gold" making the top 10, while Vance Joy also debuts with his early 2018 single "We're Going Home". For reasons I'm less certain of, Sam Fischer's "This City" took a big climb on the iTunes chart on Saturday but has retreated back. I suspect Spotify could do him some serious leg work in the future though but for now he's #9. Vera Blue has never made the main chart before, but now does so with two different versions of "Regular Touch" at once. Ben Lee's "We're All In This Together" has been on an ad for what feels like forever, but also gets him his 2nd ever entry, after "Cigarettes Will Kill You" charted way back in 2015. We've got two versions of "Reckless" with James Reyne's solo version scoring a new peak. John Williamson also has two versions of "True Blue", and I now realise that the unspecified one seems to be an orchestra re-recording, I'm not 100% certain it has been in all its other charting weeks but hopefully they don't confuse me by changing the metadata. He also has one of two different live versions of "And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda". To go back to ANZAC Day, Band Of The Royal Regiment Of New Zealand Artillery are having quite a week here. It won't amount to anything here but I will note they have the only version of "The Last Post" to crack the Spotify chart yesterday. That version climbs to #4 this week but they also notably have what must be the shortest song to ever make this chart, as "Ode" runs for 24 seconds and makes the top 20 this week. Also making the top 20 is Guy Sebastian's "Battle Scars", a new peak for that. Amidst all of this, one of the biggest musical events of the weekend had nothing to do with any of this, because Travis Scott held a virtual concert on Fortnite to a record breaking audience of 12 million people. It'll probably show better on next week's chart, but for the time being, "goosebumps" has a rare showing on the iTunes chart to get a new peak. Unrelated to all of this I think, The Carpenters get a debut for once bubbler "Top Of The World".

I seem to not be able to stop making mistakes especially with the Bubbling Under chart. "Choir" re-entered the top 200 last week and I just overlooked it I guess, so consider it ousting "Beautiful People" last week. The ousting continues this week as "Glitter" has to be bumped out to make room for Joji, who with the release of his new single, has seen the return of "SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK" yet again. Normally a 17 month old song would be primed for making this chart, but of course these are extreme circumstances so we are well in excess (including INXS) of 100 2 year old songs this week, meaning he returns to the top of the chart which he last was at 6 months ago. Otherwise very little to note this week.

03/05/2020 (Week 239)

I'm a dummy who can't go a week without making an error. This time it was particularly dumb that I skimmed over Redgum's "I Was Only 19" which should have hit a new peak of #2 last week. The corrected info will carry on with all future charts & stats. Sorry to Crowded House losing their rare appearance for "Something So Strong".

This week was a two horse race for Travis Scott. Specifically it was a question of whether or not "SICKO MODE" would make it onto this chart by being old enough. While we went overboard last week, this week we arrive at exactly 100 songs of the appropriate 2+ year time frame making for a setting where "SICKO MODE" continues to not appear on this chart, allowing "goosebumps" to take the #1 spot. Post Malone's "Better Now" is now 2 years old. It looks to be a brief stay but it's not entirely certain what could take over for similar reasons. Sam Fischer's "This City" is a strong ticket for it, but it's lagging a little in its upward momentum lately and still hasn't overtaken Lewis Capaldi's "Someone You Loved" which would be primed for the #1 spot on this chart should it make it back on the chart. Otherwise, this week is a big upward push for all the regulars that were pushed down last recently. Winning the new peak lottery in a big way is Metallica's "Enter Sandman", which in its 167th week reaches a new high of #4. Bolstered by the charity cover which just hit #1 in the UK, Foo Fighters' original "Times Likes These" gets to #11, narrowly missing out on becoming their 3rd top 10 hit. Riding a peculiar wave lately is XXXTENTACION's "Jocelyn Flores", which on a more relaxed week, is able to hit a new peak of #17. While Travis Scott has a notable legacy catalogue at this point, streamers are not really having it so his only other song that can make it in here is standalone single turned "ASTROWORLD" cut "BUTTERFLY EFFECT", which hits a new peak in the process. Having a good week for less certain reasons is Luke Combs, who gets a new peak for "When It Rains It Pours". There are just 3 debuts this week, two of them are from TikTok, and the other is "Out Of Reach" by Gabrielle. One of those two TikTok appearances is Willow actual Smith, with a 2015 track of hers. The weird fascinating thing I find about this is that she's not even the youngest artist on the chart this week.

Joji can now retain some level of dignity because he's not the hardest done by on this fluctuating state of affairs. "SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK" drops back out again but is replaced at #1 by the opening track from "ASTROWORLD", "STARGAZING", which is a month older than it, and exactly 3 months away from being automatically eligible from the chart. The only other news this week is that "Lalala" has finally dropped out and as such, "Glitter" is back.

10/05/2020 (Week 240)

Because I compile this chart on Sunday every week, it has the advantage for anything stricken to a day of the week rather than of the year. What I mean is that this chart arrives on Mother's Day as it does every year. And as has been the case since 2018, Meghan Trainor's collaboration with her mom, "Mom", figures strongly. Last year it only appeared at #3, this year it's not even close and it returns for a 2nd week at #1, certainly by far the best performing song to only chart on 3 weeks. The effect in general seems stronger than ever. Boyz II Men's "A Song For Mama" previously only bubbled under, and that was back when I was only using the iTunes chart, this week it's in at #5. Spice Girls remove themselves from the 100 and out pack with "Mama" now at #16 this week. Stan Walker also gets his first ever entry with his very recent entry in this canon (it's from 2018), "Thank You". Michelle Raitzin's diss to Weddings Parties Anything also debuts. Less specifically about Mother's Day as it's more of a Grandmother's song if anything, Ed Sheeran gets a new top 20 peak for "Supermarket Flowers" on what is generally a good week for him. Maybe more of a Mother's Day song in spirit than literal, Celine Dion gets a new peak for "Because You Loved Me". Entering quite highly as well is Haley Reinhart's cover of "Can't Help Falling In Love". Kina Grannis's version has been turning up fairly regularly on iTunes including this week but is still a few months away from being eligible. This week also saw the passing of a rock & roll legend in Little Richard. Perhaps under better circumstances he could have dominated the chart, but under short notice, he's done well to have two entries in the top 10, with 2 more lower down. He's not the only casualty here this week, though it was right after last week's chart was compiled, The Stranglers' Dave Greenfield passed away due to COVID-19 and they get "Golden Brown" coming in here, a first time entry. Though they've not been particularly present on the charts lately, Sheppard's new song might be turning things around, and they've brought back love to their back catalogue with the return of "Geronimo" and a first time entry for their late 2017 hit "Coming Home". The Hollies promote themselves from the Bubbling Under chart for the first time with "Long Cool Woman". A much more prominent bubbler is Jack Johnson's "Better Together" entering for the first time now. Vera Lynn also brings one of the oldest songs to ever appear on this chart with "We'll Meet Again", due to the 75th anniversary of Liberation Day in the UK, where she's doing particularly bonkers numbers over there. Also Talking Heads get their 2nd ever chart entry, same as it ever was.

It's time for the Weekly Chart Correction™. Last week Guy Sebastian overtook Katy Perry with their same release day tracks. So he should have hit a new peak of #12 then. It doesn't really matter because now he's #11 (still ahead of Katy) but I would be remiss to not mention it. This is because naturally, "STARGAZING" has dropped back off the map with nothing to replace him except a re-entry for Kygo & Whitney Houston. I thought there was a chance that this week would break the streak of having too many songs to fit on the main chart, but then the iTunes chart went absolutely gangbusters on old tracks and left us with 110 2+ year old tracks again. Maybe next week.

iTunes songs: 64
Spotify songs: 36

17/05/2020 (Week 241)

It's a bit more of a regular week and thus quite close. Narrowly, Sam Fischer takes it for the first of possibly many weeks for "This City" although its momentum is quite slow now. He narrowly fends off the announce of Powderfinger's reunion, which sees the two obvious songs back in the chart with new top 10 peaks. "My Happiness" performs far better on Spotify, but iTunes takes "These Days" higher here at #2. Melanie Martinez also hits the top 10 for the first time. The clearly just as important news is that "Grease" aired somewhere, and several tracks from it are here. Katy Perry also lived up to 11 years of theme music by appearing on MasterChef Australia so "Hot N Cold" gets a new peak. Less certain reasons take Bruno Mars to a new peak for "Count On Me". The other new peaks are WILLOW now reaching the top 50, and Calum Scott getting the belated new peak that he mis-timed last week for "You Are The Reason" which narrowly missed the chart then. The only other debut this week follows the stunted Eurovision rollout, and we have Jessica Mauboy's 2018 contribute "We Got Love" getting in.

It's time for the Weekly Chart Correction™. I mistakenly brought back "Higher Love" last week but I forgot that "Beautiful People" was released on the same day and takes precedence. Now both of the songs are on the chart this week as the seemingly inevitable collapse for "Moral Of The Story" has come and assumably it's the last time we'll all ever think about it. "Old Town Road" is back to #1 but because of its split plays, doesn't actually look like it has much left in it.

-1111AsheMoral Of The Story
24/05/2020 (Week 242)

This is a relatively relaxed week in terms of entries. It's possible that the mass influx of Agust D songs on the iTunes chart allowed some more flexibility than usual for songs to creep in on Spotify, however it's yet another week where this entire chart is over 2 years old. Otherwise the main news for this week's chart is Powderfinger's One Night Lonely brief performance. Despite being on Saturday night, all their stuff was actually even higher come Sunday night, not that it really matters because they had the top 2 locked down before that, and get their first #1 with "These Days". "My Happiness" naturally follows behind it, along with a cavalcade of songs they did and did not perform. Unrelated to any of this, the only other new peak comes from The Script's "Superheroes". Powderfinger have every debut on the chart this week as they'd only had 2 entries before this week.

Bubbling Under breaks further new ground this week as now a song that is only 2 weeks away from being eligible makes a debut at #1. Prior to their top 10 hit alongside Ariana Grande, Social House released "Magic In The Hamptons" with Lil Yachty, which seems to be one of the latest TikTok aided hits. I'm not certain it will get its chance to enter as it's already gone from the Spotify top 200 (though that might just be weekend fluctuation). Nonetheless, it's 10 months older than anything else on the Bubbling Under chart, and a year older than some of it as well. It's been 3 months since a song was last promoted from this chart. Hooligan Hefs' "No Effect" makes a return to the chart but with no new peak to show for it. Ellie Goulding's "Hate Me" has departed, while "Choir" and "Old Town Road" also remain very close to doing the same.

While The Voice does not ostensibly matter like it once did, the same can be said of iTunes dominance. In that prime, we could see the effect that it only took 1% of viewers to buy into an associated song to get it to the top of the charts. In this perspective, it's closer to 0.1% now and anyway now we have "Jealous" by Labrinth at #1. It's also this same force that brings back Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" to #4, which was #1 on the first ever chart due to X Factor. From it also comes Tom Walker, which for whatever reason has been purchased in more than one version, and conveniently, the remix very recently became eligible. Seemingly not from The Voice is The Script's "Superheroes" which vaults all the way up to #2, overtaking the #4 peak of "Hall Of Fame". "Bruises" also returns to the top 10 in preparation for its big showing next week, as it's currently #1 on iTunes due to the next week of Voice episodes. Not all of the Voice rebounds survived to the end of the week, but I'll give special shout out to Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me", which finally returns to the chart after its solitary week at #1, now Christina Perri's "Arms" and Jon English's "Six Ribbons" are the only #1 hits to spend 1 week on the chart. Elsewhere, Harry Styles has a new peak for "Sign Of The Times", and Destiny's Child have their 4th entry to date with "Emotion". Much like the UK Charts of 2018, we continue to dip further and further into "The Greatest Showman" and now Loren Allred gets a debut.

It's time for the Weekly Chart Correction™. I overlooked yet another song over the weeks. "Ballin'" by Mustard is yet another song released on June 28th, and has largely been charting ahead of "Beautiful People" for the recent weeks that these songs have made it into the chart. So upcoming stats will show "Beautiful People" and "Higher Love" losing some placings to make up for it, I assume "Higher Love" is debuting for real this time. This all makes for an otherwise easy chart to compile because I still don't have to dip into July 2019 releases. Last week's top 2 from Social House & Lil Nas X have both dropped out, but have been replaced by another new #1. It's more Voice impact, as Lady Gaga's "Always Remember Us This Way" went so far as to replace Lady Gaga's own "Rain On Me" at #1 on iTunes, and it even splashed over to the Spotify chart. It last appeared at #5 on this chart 9 months ago. Hooligan Hefs' "No Effect" gets a new peak this week, while Katy Perry misses out on a top 10 position because "Choir" overtook her yet again. This might have been her last chance as her standing on the chart is looking especially shaky right now. Same goes for Shawn Mendes and "If I Can't Have You" which took a dive this week.
