What's on the charts this week? Well for starters Avicii holds on to #1 for a 2nd week with the hit "Wake Me Up". Lana Del Rey holds at #2 for a 2nd week with "Summertime Sadness". Moving into the top 5 we find Lorde and her hit "Royals". In only 3 short weeks the record has gone from #19 to #7 and now to #3. Is number one the next stop?

The entire top 10 contains the same songs as last week except that they are in a slightly different order.

Two songs make their chart debut. A very latecomer to this chart we find AWOLNATION and their smash hit "Sail" making its debut at #19. This is one of those tracks that I did not care for much when I first got it way back in September of 2011. The song just sat in my iTunes for months until I found it, like only today after seeing it listed on several charts elsewhere. I thought, hmm... maybe I ought to buy the track but before I buy I ought to see if I have it. Low and behold there it was... in my library not assigned to any playlist. I must have bought it then and totally forgot about it. Anyway, AWOLNATION's "Sail" is at #19 this week. We'll see how far it goes in the coming weeks.

The other debut song is not even an official single as far as I know. The track is titled "The Walker". It's by Fitz and Tantrums. The track has been high on my rotation list ever since I got Fitz and the Tantrums' latest album More Than Just a Dream. One day while I was watching TV I caught this ad for Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese wedges. In that 30 second spot, they use "The Walker". I guess that made me decide to include this track on the Weekly Top 20 at #20. It is a good track and should get more airplay all ove the world. Great song from Fitz & the Tantrums.
