The Weekly TMJ Charts - March 29, 2014

Another week, another number one. It's the second consecutive week at the top for Flume & Chet Faker with Left Alone, probably one of the most underrated songs on Flume's self-titled debut album. I'm telling you, this pair sounds so good together it's impossible to skip once it starts playing. And they're so good, in fact, that soon after they released the Jocklaw EP, with all of its three songs currently charting on the chart. As for Left Alone, the song was bound to become one of the big songs this year. It debuted at No. 17 on early November of last year, jumped to the top 10 the week after, and has never left the upper range of the chart since then, becoming a chart-topper 20 weeks after its debut. The song is the first No. 1 for both Aussie artists on this chart.

Flume & Chet Faker - Left Alone

No major debuts this week surprisingly, but lots of movement and new peaks for some of the recent chart additions. Can't forget to mention a soon-to-be reign for Tove Lo who currently owns two spots inside the Top 10. Habits seems to be so close to reaching the top but this week tumbles down again to No. 3 in its 12th week, Out Of Mind jumps 18 as Greatest Gainer track of the week all the way to No. 7, Not On Drugs reaches a new peak at No. 16, Love Ballad leaps back to the Top 20 at No. 17, and Stay High (Habits Remix) skyrockets from 59 to 31 in its 2nd week.

Hozier's Take Me To Church bounces back to No. 2, Cherub reaches a No. 4 peak with Doses & Mimosas in its 6th week on the chart, Major Lazer & Pharrell Williams jump 5 to No. 5 with Aerosol Can, Wild Cub enters the Top 10 at No. 8 with Thunder Clatter and The War On Drugs come back for a second shot at the top with Red Eyes at No. 10.

The War On Drugs - Red Eyes

Good moves for Artifice by SOHN at No. 12, Hero by Frank Ocean, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon & Diplo enters the Top 20 at No. 19 in its second week on the chart, Come With Me Now by KONGOS reach a new peak at No. 27, as does Magic by Coldplay at No. 36 this week.

The Biggest Jump and Power Play track of the week belongs to Bastille with the Laura Palmer RAC Remix. The song comes back with a bang leaping from 94 to a new peak at No. 46.

Diplo, Faustix & Imanos, Kia › Revolution

I can't believe I slept on this one! Not that it matters, but considering Diplo made huge waves last year on these charts as one of the members of Major Lazer, and more recently in a collabo with Sia and The Weeknd on Elastic Heart, I'm thinking I should've come across this one sooner. And maybe I did. But it isn't until now that it's struck the right chord. Revolution is one of the tracks from Diplo's Revolution EP, released in October of 2013, with its accompanying video published last January. Amazing beats, amazing vocals, deeper lyrics that you'd like to believe, interesting video. Not much else to say, just hit play.

And why not? Listen to those great remixes while you're at it. My personal favorites are the RUN DMT and Panic City remixes. Check those out.

"Magic" by Coldplay

Here it is! The new single from one of the biggest bands in the world finally sees the light of day. I find this to not be as instantaneous as some of Coldplay's other lead singles - think In My Place or Speed of Sound - and that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's groovy but chill. Definitely a grower. The type of song to bop my head to while riding the bus home after a long, stressful day at work. It's not a classic either but personally, I think it's better than anything from Mylo Xyloto. No, I'm not crazy. Magic will be included in their upcoming sixth studio album Ghost Stories, to be released next month.

Do you feel the Magic?
