As expected, Katy Perry has taken the #1 spot away from Daft Punk as her latest single "Roar" jumps up from last week's #4 to be the top song of the week. It took Ms. Perry only 2 weeks to hit #1... Her path to the top: Debut @ #17, leaped to #4, and now #1. We'll see how long she stays at the peak.
As a result Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" slips back to #2 from #1... but nothing to be ashamed of... Daft Punk has spent all summer in the top 5, holding #1 for 8 weeks and sticking around at #2 and #3 for the entire season. Now the second single from their Random Access Memories album debuts on the Weekly Top 20 at #19. The title of the track is "Lose Yourself to Dance" and once again Pharrell Williams takes on the vocals. How high will this song go/
This week's other chart debut is "The Wire" by HAIM coming in at #20.
Elton John breaks into the top 10 coming in at #8 with "Home Again" moving up 4 points from last week's #12. "Home Again" is a ballad much like his early classics from the 1970s with Elton's vocals and piano playing front and center.
The song taking the biggest drop on the char this week is Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines". The song was one of those fast risers having reached #1 in only 2 weeks before slowly settling out of the top. This week's plunge can be attributed to the TV performance with Miley Cyrus on the MTV VMAs. I saw the video on YouTube. Miley certainly made a fool of herself. This one is collateral damage and punishment for a very, very bad video.
