Robin Thicke holds on to #1 for a second week in a row with "Blurred Lines". Moving up one from #3 to #2 we find "Waves" by Blondfire. Could this indy track top the chart? Be back next week for that.

Rounding out the top 5 we see "Get Lucky", the former #1 single by Daft Punk slip a notch from #2 to #3. Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It" holds at #4 with Fleetwood Mac right behind her holding at #5 with "Sad Angel".

This week was mostly incremental jumps up for most songs. 1 or 2 point jumps were the norm. Moving into the top 10 for the first time we find Bastille's "Pompeii" at #10, up from last week's #11.

The big dropper this week is Lady Antebellum's "Get To Me" down from #7 to #14. Guess this song is too early to be listed as a single. Perhaps it may never be. It's the best song off the band's latest album Golden.

Only one song makes its debut on the top 20. That goes to Bruno Mars with his latest hit "Treasure" which to me, sounds a lot like something Michael Jackson would have recorded years ago. Good song.
