Week #29

Chester Bennington, of Linkin Park, committed suicide which you all know. I still can't believe it. I stared at the screen for five minutes before realizing I was supposed to be doing my blog. The only songs I really knew from Linkin Park were Heavy and Battle Symphony, and otherwise I can't say much. Apparently the suicide had something to do with his friend, who died two months ago. You have to feel bad for anybody who commits suicide: they really have nowhere to go. It's good to see that this news is getting some respect: Linkin Park are dominating iTunes and when you type in "c" or "l" the first things that show up are Chester Bennington and Linkin Park.

This week, due to the new music, I will be expanding my chart to 40 songs. Last time I expanded, it worked sort of well. I will see how long this lasts.

Even I was surprised at he results when I realized how much activity there was.

#1 song this week one year ago: Twenty One Pilots - Heathens (2/9)

#1 song last week: Skye Holland - Her (2)
Most missed countdown song: Coldplay/Beyonce' - Hymn For The Weekend (peak: #1)

Exits:
None, since we are expanding.

Skye Holland (2) - Week #28

So the finalists of the pop prom queen for Sirius XM Hits 1 last year both released new songs that, in Canada, are currently #2 and #3 (#1 is Despacito). You might be surprised when you realize that I actually love Fetish and dislike mildly Sorry Not Sorry. Normally, I love Demi and hate Selena, but she seems to be getting better.

Exits:
Imagine Dragons - Whatever It takes (#18)
Gnash/DENM - Belong (#29)

#1 song this week one year ago: Twenty One Pilots - Heathens (1/9)
#1 song last week: Skye Holland - Her (1)
Most missed countdown song: Jacob Whitesides - Lovesick (peak: #4)
