Daft Punk holds on to the #1 spot for a 2nd week with "Get Lucky", a song that also features the vocals of Pharrell Williams. I heard this was a big hit in the UK and Europe. It is a big hit on this chart too!

Speaking of Pharrell, this guy shows up again in our #18 track that debuts on the top 20. Yes, he is a featured vocalist on Robin Thicke's debut track called "Blurred Lines". The song is already at the top of several charts the world over. I predict it will go high on this chart. Both "Get Lucky" and "Blurred Lines" have a good, danceable groove going for them.

Elsewhere on the chart we some upward movement from the following tracks: Taylor Swift's "22" climbs 5 from #10 to #5 this week; "Wagon Wheel" by Darius Rucker jumps from #16 to #10; Fun's "Why Am I the One" moves up 2 from #11 to #9; and Blondfire moves up 6 from #20 to #14 with "Waves".

After a 10 year absence, Fleetwood Mac returns to this chart at #19 this week with their latest "Sad Angel". They were last on way back in 2003 with "Peacekeeper" and "Say You Will". Fleetwood Mac is most well known for their album Rumours that was a huge hit in 1977 and 1978. They have produced dozens of albums spanning a career of personnel changes and music styles starting from around 1968. Good to see the Mac back!
