Matchbox Twenty holds at #1 for a 3rd week in a row with their big hit "She's So Mean". The top 4 positions remain unchanged on this week's chart with Fun's "Some Nights" holding at #2, Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain" holding at #3 and Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" holding at #4. Positions 2, 3 and 4 all consist of former #1 songs.

The only new entry into the top 5 is Alabama Shakes' "Hold On" moving up from #7 to #5.

At number 6 we find Owl City with Carly Rae Jepsen bolting from #11 of last week to #6 with "Good Time". Looks like a solid top 5 entry for next week. This is a good song with a fun video. Anything with Carly Rae is fun. Speaking of which, she is still hanging in on the chart with her former #1 record "Call Me Maybe", moving down 4 from #5 to #9 this week.

The Killers move into the top 10 this week with their track "Runaways" at #10 up 2 from last week's #12.

Three songs make their chart debuts: Jason Aldean's country rocker "Take a Little Ride" comes in at #18;Marina & the Diamonds "Primadonna" at #19 and TobyMac's "Me Without You" at #20. Another great week for contemporary hit music. Check out the videos.

Matchbox Twenty continues at #1 for a second week with their latest hit "She So Mean". Following them is Funwho have moved up from #6 to #2 with their latest single "Some Nights".

Only one new song makes a debut in the top 10... and that is Anuhea's "Higher Than The Clouds" which climbs 4 points from #14 to #10. It is a tastefully done pop song with a reggae backbeat. The track is taken from Anuhea's latest album For Love. Anuhea charted on the Weekly Top 20 in 2010 with "Come Over Love" which peaked at #12 and in 2009 with "I Just Want You Around" in 2009. That song peaked at #9. It is likely that "Higher Than The Clouds" will chart higher than #9.

Two songs make their debut on the top 20 this week. Both of them so far are not on mainstream radio. The first is by a guy named Bahamas who debuts at #20 with "Caught Me Thinkin'". The track has a tropical flair to it and sounds a bit like an electrified Jack Johnson... and no wonder. The track is on Johnson's Brushire Records label.
The second of the two debut songs is "Leave the Lights On" the latest by singer Meiko at #19. She landed a #1 hit on on the Weekly Top 20 in 2009 with the track "Boys With Girlfriends".

Droppers: Songs on the way out this week include Shannon Hurley's "I Feel Love" at #18, Maroon 5's "Payphone" (a former #1) at #17 and Erick Hutchinson's "Watching You Watch Me" at #16. All had respectable chart runs here. We'll still be listening.
