Katy Perry holds on to #1 for a 4th consecutive week with "Last Friday Night (TGIF)". The party song has held off all comers, and for me it is probably on the strength of its movie-like short video and that it is probably the best song I heard from her current album Teenage Dream.

Climbing to #2 is The Script with their late hit "For the First Time," up 2 points from #4 of last week. Could it go to #1?

New to the top 10 this week are Martin Solveig & Dragonette with their 2009 Euro-dance hit, "Boys and Girls" coming in at #9 up from #11. Following them is Dengue Fever with their latest Khmer language track, "Uku". It moves up to #10 from #12.

Songs making their debut this week include "Only Love" by Indonesian singer Anggun at #19 and "Rope" by The Foo Fighters at #18. We'll see how high these two different tracks go in the coming weeks.
