Smashing Pumpkins tops the chart this week with "A Stitch in Time," a downloadable track that is not officially released on any of their albums. The track is from an upcoming album that was supposed to be released this spring. Nevertheless the track has steadily climbed over the past weeks to finally put it into #1. Up from #2 last week "A Stitch is Time" replaces Taio Cruz's "Break My Heart" which falls to #3.

At #2 for the 4th week on the chart is "Animal" by Neon Trees. This group looks like they had fun making their music video (see below) for their debut single. The track moved up from #7 last week. Looks like a number one record in the making.

Katy Perry makes her 2010 chart debut with her neweest single "California Gurls" at #19. The track has already topped the charts on iTunes and I think even Amazon. It's a good pop record but I would not call it great. We'll see how it does on the Weekly Top 20. Also debuting is Weezer with their remake of the old Monkees hit, "I'm a Believer". The track debuts at #20 this week. It's from the Shrek 4 movie soundtrack. The group Smash Mouth did a similar remake for Shrek 2 back in 2001.
