The top 3 records on Mel's Weekly Top 20 remain the same as they have been for the past 3 weeks. For the third week in a row Katy Perry holds at #1 with "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)"; Coldplay holds at #2 with "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall" at #2, with Noah & the Whale holding at #3 with "Tonight's The Kind Of Night". The latter song is a former #1 record here.
Elsewhere the song making the strongest gain in the top 10 is Colbie Caillat's "Brighter Than The Sun" moving up 2 from #9 last week to #7 this week. Moving into the top 10 with a 2 point climb is "Moves Like Jagger" with Maroon 5 featuring Christina Aguileria. That single moves in from #12 to #10.
There are 3 debut tracks on the Weekly Top 20. They include "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO coming in at #18. That song has been a listed at #1 on Billboard, Amazon and iTunes. Another song that has been kicking around for a while is "Young Blood" by The Naked & Famous. The group is from New Zealand and this record makes its debut after I caught their performance online at Lollapalooza this weekend. Good band. "Young Blood" was a #1 single in New Zealand. It shows up at #19 for the first time here.
Rounding out the 3 debut songs is a country track by The Band Perry. "If I Die Young" debuts at #20 this week. This song is already a big country and crossover hit.
Droppers include The Cars' "Sad Song" moving down from #6 to #9, The Smithereens' "Sorry" down from #10 to #15 and Dengue Fever down from #11 to #16 with "Cement Slippers" a former #1 song and the oldest track on the top 20. That song has been listed here since late February and held the #1 spot for 5 weeks this past spring.
