It's Fun at number one! Yes, Fun that new alternative group that hit the chart earlier this year with "We Are Young" (peaking at #3 in April) makes it to #1 with their latest single "Some Nights". It's a great song and the title track of their latest album which also contains the former top 5 hit. We'll see how long this record holds the top spot.

Entering the top 5 this week we find Owl City with their track "Good Time" moving up from #6 to #3. The single features the additional vocals of Carly Rae Jepsen, the current teen idol fave who also topped the chart with her own hit "Call Me Maybe" earlier this summer. "Good Time" is a good song that will probably move up even higher. Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" is on its way down to #11 from #9 this week.

The fastest rising single on the chart this week belongs to country music artist Jason Aldean. His track "Take a Little Ride" races up 8 notches from its debut position of #18 last week to break into the top ten this week at #10. Wow! The song is a big hit on the country music charts and it looks like it will be a big crossover record here.

Two songs make their chart debut. At #18 we find the return of Maroon 5 and their latest track "One More Night" which comes off their latest album Overxposed. It's a great reggae sounding follow-up to their #1 hit single "Payphone" from a few weeks back. At #20 we find the return of Miss Li and her single "My Heart Goes Boom". Miss Li was on the chart in 2009 with two singles, "Bourgeois Shangri-La" and "I Heard of a Girl", both hitting the top 10.
