Churchill holds on to the #1 spot for a 4th consecutive week with their hit "Change". The song is a hit on my chart if nowhere else. It is from the band's Change EP which also features the track "Ark In A Flood" which not so coincidentally makes its debut on the Weekly Top 20 this week at #19. So for Churchill, it's now 2 songs on the top 20.
The Lumineers are the other band with 2 songs on this week's top 20. Their current hit, "Ho Hey" which way back in November of last year, peaked at #3. The single is a worldwid smash for The Lumineers. This week the song drops from its 2013 peak of #9 (held for 2 weeks) to #13. The song has been on this chart for more than 25 weeks since its debut back in the September. This song comes off their debut album simply titled The Lumineers. And now the band's second single moves up a few points in its third week on th chart. "Stubbon Love" is this week's #12 song, moving up one from #13. Could it be another top 10 hit for The Lumineers? Time will tell.
Jumping up higher: Two song this week make big jumps on the top 20. The first one is "Running For Cover", the debut single from Ivan & Alyosha. The track now in its second week on the chart, moves a brisk 8 points up from #19 to #11 this week. Looks like a big hit in the making. The other leaper is "Devil's Got a Gun" by Whitehorse out of Canada. The country rocker moves from #16 to #9 this week.
Also in the top 10 we find ZZ Ward moving into the top 20 up from #12 and her hit "Put the Gun Down". So we got 2 gun songs in a row... this one and "Devil's Got a Gun" at #9.
Besides Churchill's debut at #19, we also have 2 other new tracks to the chart. At #18 we find Caro Emerald with a brand new single called "Tangled Up". Two points below her is Mariah Carey who enters at #20 with "Amost Home" from the film soundtrack album Oz the Great and Powerful.
