Toby Keith's "Red Solo Cup", the goofiest country song of recent years, holds for the 2nd week at #1. Right behind Keith is Katy Perry, whose lastest single, "The One That Got Away" inches up from #3 to #2 this week. Top of the charts next week? Maybe.

A big break into the top 5 is Nickelback, whose latest rock anthem "When We Stand Together" bolts from #9 of last week to #4 this week.

That is still not the biggest rising song of the week. Honors for that feat goes to Train and their latest single "Drive By". That song climbs from its debut spot of #19 last week to #11 this week.

Three songs make their chart debuts: At #18 we find Kelly Clarkson returning in fine form with her latest "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)", Gotye at #19 with "Somebody I Used to Know" and Olly Murs at #20 with "Dance With Me Tonight".

We have 4 former #1 songs still on the chart, all of them dropping.... Dropping from #2 to #3 is Adele and "Someone Like You" which held the top spot for only 1 week two weeks ago. This week it drops 1 from #2 to #3. At #8 we find Matt Cardle with "Run For Your Life," followed by Bruno Mars "It Will Rain" at #9. Dropping out of the top 10 after many weeks there (including 7 at #1) is Coldplay with their huge hit "Paradise". It moves 2 points down from #10 last week to #12 this week. Matt Cardle and Coldplay have new singles waiting in the wings to replace these veteran hits.

Songs That Went to #1 in 2012

Someone Like You - Adele
It Will Rain - Bruno Mars
Run For Your Life - Matt Cardle
