20I Feel LoveShannon Hurley--


The two debut songs on this week's chart are fairly far from mainstream. "Hold On" byAlabama Shakes at #19 is one of those kind of records that take time to grow on you. Their sound kind of reminds me of Mumford & Sons but with a female vocalist and a husky voice. The other chart debut is by Shannon Hurley who has an internet following and has explored different music genres including pop, folk, electronic and dance. Here she remakes Donna Summer's 1977 classic "I Feel Love" and spins it very nicely. Number 20 this week. In 2009, Shannon Hurley took her single "California" all the way to #1.

Maroon 5 still holds at #1 with "Payphone" for the 5th week and Carly Rae Jepsen finally moves up from #3 to #2 with her smash "Call Me Maybe". Will she go to #1?
