Gotye is at #1 for a 4th consecutive week with his hit "Somebody That I Used to Know" with Kimbra.

Inching up to #2 we find The Wanted and "Glad You Came". Could they go to #1 with this. Come back next week.

The Wanted's move came at the expense of Katy Perry, whose latest single "Part of Me" has apparently peaked at #2 last week, falling back to #3 this week, just ahead of Train and their former #1 hit "Drive By" which holds at #4 for a second week.

The rest of the chart see some incremental movements of 1 or 2 points up or down, with several songs in a holding position. Breaking into the top 10 is Maroon 5 and their latest single "Payphone". That song moves up 2 from #11 to #9 this week.

Two songs make their chart debut. First we see Englebert Humperdinck (yes the old crooner is 76 years young) charting with a single called "Love Will Set You Free" at #19. The track is getting some airplay in Humperdinck's native U.K. since it is this year's Eurovision 2012 contest entry for the British Isles.

At #20 we find newcomer Haley Reinhart and her debut single "Free".

All in all we have a somewhat diverse chart consisting of songs that may not be on the mainstream and several that are current radio stalwarts. Enjoy.


Meiko had a #1 hit on the Weekly Top 20 in 2008 called "Boys With Girlfriends".
