Justine Bennett "Heavy Feeling" @ #10

It is not too often that I celebrate a song that has so far peaked at #10. This one is worth mentioning and listening to by Justine Bennett. It's called "Heavy Feeling" and is out now on the Authentic Music label. Check out the song by clicking on the graphic above.

Neon Trees hold the #1 spot for the second week in a row with "Animal". The video sold me on this song when I saw it about 5 weeks ago on YouTube. It's still great today.

Nikki Yanofsky's "Cool My Heels" moves up a point from #3 to #2. Could be coming in at number 1 next week I think... "Pray For You" by Jaron and The Long Road to Love also moves up a point from #5 to #4, with Barenaked Ladies following behind, up from #6 to #5 with "Every Subway Car".

Hot risers this week are Katy Perry with Snoop Dog and their hit "California Gurls" up 4 points going from #11 to #7. The song is #1 on several charts. Also hot is Shakira moving from #19 to #12 with the "Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)" theme song to the ongoing World Cup Football (Soccer) games taking place in South Africa.

Caro Emerald is going back up not once but twice. Her former #1 song which sagged two weeks ago at #12 moved up to #10 last week and this week is back at #8. Meanwhile her second single "A Night Like This" makes its debut at #19.

La Roux returns to the Weekly Top 20 with a song that topped this chart last fall. "Bulletproof" is getting listed on a lot of charts these days and garnering a fair share of airplay, enough to have it re-chart here at #18. The song was last charted on December 27, 2009. It was #1 for a few weeks in November 2009.
