After climbing the charts for the past 5 weeks, moving up several notches at the time, Matt Cardle breaks into the #1 slot with his chart debut single, "Run For Your Life". The song which moves up 2 spots from #3 to #1 is not a hit on American radio as far as I know. It is one of those songs that have struck a cord in places other than the U.S. so far. It is not listed on many charts except mine and a few others on personal chart boards. Matt should be an artist that gets more airplay. He's good.

Following Matt Cardle, is Hawaii born singer Bruno Mars, who also moves up 2 points from last week's #4 spot to #2 this week with his huge hit "It Will Rain". This song has already topped the iTunes and the sales charts. It's a good single and hopefully will be featured on his next album.

Moving into the top 5 we also find Adele, moving up a spot from #6 to #5 with her huge worldwide hit "Someone Like Me," which was a late arrival to this chart.

Obviously with the upward movement in the top 5, songs had to also move down... but not by too much this week.Coldplay has relinquished the top spot after spending 7 weeks there with their hit "Paradise". Right behind them is Zee Avi who peaked at #2 for the past 3 weeks with her still catchy "The Book of Morris Johnson" now at #4.

Two songs make their chart debut. They include Mayer Hawthorne's debut single "The Walk" at #19. It is a classic break-up song with an artistic but violent video. The clip may show up here. At number 20 we find The Ting Tings with their latest indie hit "Hang It Up". They hit the chart late last year with "Hands" and that peaked at #2. We'll see how far The Ting Tings will go with this one.
