 Maroon 5 hits #1 this week. Yes, the group is on top with their latest "Payphone". Good song, good video, but when was the last time you actually used a payphone? Have you ever used a payphone? Are there payphones in your community?

Gotye drops from #1 to #4 this week with "Somebody That I Used To Know". This is after a 5 week stay at number one, 4 weeks consecutively, and then falling out to #2 two weeks ago and climbing back to the top last week. Now at #4. This song is probably on its slow way out. Features Kimbra. Interesting video.

One of my favorite songs on the top 20 is "Watching You Watch Him" by Eric Hutchinson. The single climbs up 2 from #4 to #2. Could number 1 be next?

Nicki Minaj's "Starships" moves up to #6 after several weeks at #7. She follows Adele on a one point jump. Adele's single "Rumour Has It" moves up to #5 after spending a few weeks at #6. Both good songs.

Fastest mover is by the group One Direction. Their debut single "What Makes You Beautiful" which came in at #17 last week makes a 7 point leap into the top 10 at #10 this week. One Direction is the latest in a long string of "boy band" types of groups. I think.

Good debuts: Two "good" songs make their chart debuts this week. The first one is "Good Girl" by Carrie Underwood at #18 and "Good Feeling" by rapper Flo Rida.
