Matchbox Twenty hits #1 with their latest single "She's So Mean". They replace Adele who held the top spot for the past 2 weeks with "Set Fire to the Rain". That song slips from #1 to #2 this week. Fact is 4 of the 5 top 5 songs are or were #1 songs in recent weeks. Besides 1 & 2, at #3 we still have Carly Rae Jepsenholding at #3 for another week with her former #1 song "Call Me Maybe." Holding at #4 for 2 weeks now isGotye with is former #1 song "Somebody That I Used To Know". That record stayed at #1 for several weeks before dropping to #5 a few weeks back, only to creep up again to #4 for the past weeks.

Further down the chart we see Maroon 5's "Payphone" stopping by at #13 this week on its way down. That song was at #1 about six weeks ago.

Several songs are climbing the charts including Fun's "Some Nights" leaping from #13 to #6 this week; The Beach Boys "That's Why God Made the Radio" up from #9 to #7; followed by Alabama Shakes' "Hold On" up from #10 to #8 and Anuhea's "Higher Than The Clouds" up from #17 to #14. Also up is "Good Time" byOwl City featuring Carly Rae Jepsen. That song debut at #20 last week, this week at #15.

Two songs make their chart appearance this week. At #19 is The Killers' latest titled "Runaways" whileCarrie Underwood is "Blown Away" at #20. Both tracks are bound to make major chart moves in the next few weeks.
