We got a new song at #1. Daft Punk's groovy "Get Lucky" jumps into the top spot from last week's #5 position after debuting at #19 only the week before. This is one of the fastest rising songs on the Weekly Top 20 in recent history. #19 to #5 to #1.... took only 2 weeks. Wow. The track also features Pharrell Williams on vocals I believe. This song has topped several charts mainly in Europe including the U.K. On the Billboard Hot 100, the song has so far peaked at #14.

Caro Emerald slips a spot from last week's #1 to #2 with "Tangled Up". The record held on to #1 for the past 3 weeks. Holding at #3 for a second week is Pink and her latest "Just Give Me a Reason". Pink took this song up to the #1 spot recently on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Elsewhere on Mel's Weekly Top 20, We find Taylor Swift making some gains as 2 tracks from her latest album Red continue to climb this chart. Coming in at #10 up from #13 last week is her latest single "22". Following that song at #13 is "State Of Grace" picking up 5 points from last week's #18 position.

Psy is back with a second single similar to last year's "Gangnam Style". The Korean pop star's latest track to make it to this chart is "Gentlemen" checking in for the first week at #18 on the Weekly Top 20. The second debut song of the week comes from indie band Blondfire. Their track is "Waves" which charts for the first week at #20.
