Chart Notes:

For the week ending 1/6:

* HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I am in the midst of presenting my top 40 of 2017. I am up to #16 in my thread! Follow it here.

* So Natalia, that's how you do a comeback. Almost exactly 12 years ago she hit #1 with her group with the song Casa. She hasn't been back on the charts since. She's no longer a one hit wonder on my chart and she manages to hit #1 again. She breaks the record set by Pharrell for most time passed between number one songs. (The old record is 11 years, 3 mos.) Meanwhile, this is Miguel's 2nd top ten as well - he hit the top ten previously being featured on Janelle Monae's Primetime. The song is from the movie Coco.

* Rita Ora makes the biggest jump since May 2016 - a week in which Dua Lipa's Be The One jumped 18-3.

* Of the Despacito triumvirate, Luis Fonsi was the only one who hadn't charted before. Now he has a second top ten in Echame La Culpa.

So wit the year change we basically advance just one week on the retro chaert form the last week of 2013 to the first of 2014. Still the top five changed dramatically. This is often a week for big jumps as you can see Wizard made a bigger jump than Rita this week. And Let It Go was set to start a three week run at the top. She was sandwiched into between the two Lily Allen number ones. Let It Go began the start of what is now a four year streak of a movie song being number one in January. It was the last number one from an animated movie until this week.

Chart Notes:

For the week ending 1/6:

* I will be wrapping up my top 40 today. Make sure you check it out here.

* Whatchugot leapfrogs over the competition thereby making Caro Emerald the first Dutch woman to ever hit ##1 on the list.

* Cardi B gets her second top 10 after hitting #1 with Bodak Yellow. Bartier Cardi is also waiting just outside the wings at #11.

* Dolly Parton's remake of her own Jolene nabs her the first top ten appearance she's ever had. A week from now, she turns 72, which makes her the second oldest woman (after fellow country star Loretta Lynn) to have a top ten on my list.

Retro is only three years back today, and we see Sia at the top with what was her first ever #1 on my list -s he's hit #2 three times prior, but it was a song from the remake musical Annie that propelled her to the top. Movies have had a tradition of yielding a #1 in January (see Remember Me last week) and Sia benefited from that. Bouncing back up was Uptown Funk, which had hit #1 the previous November. And one of my great regrets is that Blank Space topped out at #2 behind the forgettable Bright Lights, which would hit number one the following week.

Chart Notes:

For the week ending 1/20:

* My 3000th post :D

* A few acts are doubling up this week - Eminem and Caro Emerald both enjoy a top five hit at the same time they debut with another song. Meanwhile, Cardi B adds a second top ten hit; it's her third overall.

* While Bruno Mars did hit #1 in 2014 with Uptown Funk, he was featured on that song. His last top five appearance as a lead was Treasure in summer of 2013, nearly five years ago!

Two monster hits dominated the charts two years ago. Adele's Hello had just finished a huge 8 week run at the top, and was succeed by a 7 week run for Coldplay. It wasn't until Feel It Still late last year that a run equaled Coldplay's performance. Another rarity - two country artists in the top five at the same time, and probably the only time they were both men.
