The goofiest song on the chart has made it to the top. Yes, Toby Keith's #1 country music hit "Red Solo Cup", a silly drinking song with an equally silly video, has climbed to the top... the pinnacle of popularity. Numero uno. Number 1 for this week on Mel's Weekly Top 20. Haven't heard a drinking song this funny since Hank Williams' "There a Tear in My Beer" and Don Ho's "Tiny Bubbles". This song is up there among "99 Bottles of Beer" as one of the funniest, and most memorable of drinking songs. A CMA in Toby Keith's future? Has he already won one? I certainly don't know.

By the way... I don't drink which makes this song way out of left field for me. Huh!

Elsewhere on the chart we see Katy Perry closing in on the top with her #3 record this week, "The One That Got Away". It's the follow-up to her immensely popular "Last Friday Night (TGIF)" hit single of last year which went to #2 on the year end Top 100 for 2011.

Nickelback's rocker "When We Stand Together" breaks into the top 10 this week at #9. It moves up from last week's #12 position. Good song. Should go higher.

Two song debut this week. At #19 we find the latest by Train called "Drive By". Entering at #20 this week are The Shins with "Simple Song". Both are great and should go high on this chart.

Songs That Went to #1 in 2012
