Daft Punk holds at the #1 spot for the 8th non-consecutive week with "Get Lucky" featuring both Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers who used to be with the group Chic back in the late 1970s. This is the song's 2nd week at #1 for this run. It was at #1 for 6 weeks prioer to falling to #2 and #3 for a couple of months before returning to #1 last week. I found Daft Punk's CD Random Access Memories at a used CD store for $5 this past week. It's a good CD and may have one or two more hits pulled from it.

"Roar" by Katy Perry makes a huge jump this week from its debut of #17 to #4. Wow! The song is almost definitely headed for #1.

Several other songs have made some signifcant moves up the chart, while several others have fallen quite hard.

Risers: "Burn" by Ellie Goulding up from #6 to #3; "Brave" by Sara Bareilles from #9 to #5; "Liquid Lunch" from Caro Emerald, up from #10 to #6; and "Home Again" by Elton John up from #16 to #12.

Droppers: They include "Treasure" from Bruno Mars down from #3 to #7; "Waves" by Blondfire down from #5 to #9 - both of these are former #1 records. Also taking a significant drop is "Pompeii" by Bastille - plunging from #7 to #18. "Wasting All These Tears" by Cassandra Pope tumbles from #13 to #19.

Maroon 5 seems to have hit its peak with their latest single. "Love Somebody" got as high as #11 last week, but drops now to #13 this week.

All of the dropping records will be making room for new entries as we transit out of summer and into the fall of 2013. Our first new "fall" record is by Lady Gaga who debuts this week at #20 with "Applause".
