Biggest DROP!!!... Of The Week: OneRepublic – Love Runs Out (–30)
Biggest Jump Of The Week: Ed Sheeran – Don’t (+24)
~ Nico and Vinz – Am I Wrong is the first re-entry we've had in a while. It was expected and is accepted. Stay as long as you like old pal.
~ Kicking off the new entrants with Fergie – L.A. Love (La La). Overall, it's a really good and catchy song that deserves to spend quite a while on this countdown.
~ Vance Joy – Riptide is interesting and I like it for now. I don't think it'll be long before I get sick of it though.
~ Big Data – Dangerous is also an interesting alternative song. My opinion is the same as Riptide. But Riptide is just a little better.
~ Taylor Swift – Welcome To New York is good. But not as good as what Out Of The Woods was. But I can tolerate it (for now anyways).
~ In case anyone doesn't know, I'm a huge fan of John Newman. His voice is phenomenal! I ranked his last hit Love Me Again #3 on My Top 45 Of 2013. I also ranked the 2012 hit Rudimental/John Newman – Feel The Love #5 of 2012. And then there's Calvin Harris. Phenomenal Calvin Harris. His music never disappoints me. Put these two artists together and you have this phenomenal song. It does sound a lot like one of Calvin's previous hits, Sweet Nothing. But Blame is hands-down Calvin's best. I applaud him for picking John Newman to do the vocals. This song better stay for a long while.
~ Here is the Hit-Bound list. I haven't done one in a while.
- New Politics – Everywhere I Go (Kings and Queens)
- Bea Miller – Young Blood

1. David Guetta/Sam Martin – Dangerous
2. Mr. Probz/Robin Schulz – Waves
3. Eden XO – (Not) Too Cool To Dance

5. Magic! – Let Your Hair Down
Blame It On The Blurbs, Don't Blame It On Me
~ Taylor Swift – Out Of The Woods ties with DJ Snake/Lil Jon – Turn Down For What for the Most Hysterically Short Tenure of 2014 spending only one week on the countdown.
~ R5 – Heart Made Up On You lasted only two weeks with us unfortunately.
~ Did anyone else notice Spyder Harrison forgot to announce Rixton – Wait On Me being one of the songs that left? I was confused once the sixth entrant aired.
~ Maroon 5 – Animals is already in the Top 3! And it's only it's third week.
~ Rixton – Wait On Me leaves after an annoyingly short tenure. >:(
~ What the hell is OneRepublic – Counting Stars still doing here??? This is beyond ridiculous. If Love Runs Out leaves before Counting Stars, I will be pissed.
~ Magic! – Rude needs to leave. Who still listens to this large piece of crap???
~ Pitbull/John Ryan – Fireball is getting old. Please start to be on your way out soon.
~ Jesse McCartney – Superbad is staying strong on the countdown. Keep it up pal!
~ I can finally download The Vamps/Shawn Mendes – Oh Cecilia (Breaking My Heart). I've been waiting since I first heard it on the #YouTube15 with Jenna Marbles.
~ Ed Sheeran – Don't at #5 is exactly what I was worried about this week. Please fix this.
~ Congrats Disclosure/Sam Smith – Latch on staying (much) longer than I thought you would.
~ Best song on Jenna Marbles' #YouTube15: Dillon Francis/Brendon Urie – Love In The Middle Of A Firefight
