The number one spot is held once again this week by Maroon 5. It is the 7th week at the top spot for "One More Night" which in a way ties the 7 weeks that Train had at #1 earlier this year with "Drive By". The only diffrence is that Train's #1 song held on to the top spot for consecutive weeks whereas Maroon 5's "One More Night" held the top spot for 3 weeks back in September, falling to #2 and #3 shortly after and then coming back to #1 on October 28 where it has been for the last 4 weeks. 3 + 4 = 7. The bigger question is, will Train's "Drive By" be my top song of the year or will it be "One More Night" by Maroon 5? That remains to be seen.

Also in the top 5.... Cher Lloyd holds at #2 for a second week with "What U Back" as does Adele, holding at #4 with "Skyfall," the latest James Bond 007 movie theme. New in the top 5 are Rihanna at #3 with "Diamonds" up from #7 last week and Bruno Mars at #5 with "Locked Out Of Heaven," up from #9 last week.

New in the top 10 is Tristan Prettyman and her debut single "My Oh My". The song has been climbing the chart a few points at a time for several weeks now, and breaks into the 10 at #9 up from #11. It has apparently put a stall mark on The Lumineers' debut sing "Ho Hey" as that song remains at #10 for a second week.

Fastest moving song in the top 20 this week belongs to Maroon 5! Their latest single "Daylight" moves up from last week's debut spot of #19 to #13. This is a good year for the band who is still on the chart with the #1 song "One More Night" and who peaked at #1 earlier this year with "Payphone". All 3 songs appear on their latest album Overexposed.
Big droppers this week include "It's Only Life" by The Shins down from #13 to #18 and "Spectrum" by Florence + the Machine, tumbling from #8 to #17. Looks like both songs are on their way out.

Two debut songs round up the top 20. At #19 we find "I Could Be A King" by a group called The Dunwells and an album track from Train called "Mermaid" at #20 which should be issued as a single.
