 We have a new track at the #1 spot. The Wanted inch their way pass Gotye to take the top spot on the Weekly Top 20 with their hit "Glad You Came". The Wanted is another in a long string of "boy bands" that are frequent visitors to the top 40 charts and radio the world over. The track is decent for a boy band. How long it will stay at #1 remains to be seen.

Maroon 5 breaks into the top 5 with their latest hit "Payphone". The track jumps up from #9 last week to #5 this week. It'll probably go higher.

Biggest mover of the week is Eric Hutchinson's "Watching You Watch Him" which makes a big jump from #16 of last week to #9 this week. Yep the song is in the top 10 in only it's third week on the chart. Keep watching this one.

The only debut song on the top 40 belongs to newcomer Alyssa Bonagura. It's got a great ukelele intro. The title of the song is "I Make My Own Sunshine" which makes it just in time for the summer season at #19.
