The Major’s Top 10 Hits – Week 76

Every Monday night I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday July 29TH 2018:

  1. “Dream Small” – Josh Wilson [# 2 last week / 9TH week on chart]
  2. “Grace Got You” – MercyMe [1 / 17TH]
  3. “Resurrection Power” – Chris Tomlin [5 / 25TH]
  4. “Do It Again” – Elevation Worship [3 / 13TH]
  5. “The Way (New Horizon)” – Pat Barrett [4 / 13TH]
  6. “The Breakup Song” – Francesca Battistelli [7 / 3RD]
  7. “Who You Say I Am” – Hillsong Worship [- / 1ST]
  8. “Living Hope” – Phil Wickham [8 / 4TH]
  9. “Wherever I Go” – Dan Bremnes [9 / 4TH]
  10. “Heaven On Earth” – Stars Go Dim [10 / 2ND]

Josh Wilson scores the 24TH # 1 smash of the past 76 weeks of my chart. It’s his follow-up to “That Was Then, This Is Now” from a few years ago that still receives significant radio airplay as a recurrent.

Initially a song by the name of “Dream Small” may seem counterproductive for an Evangelical Christian boldly living this fantastic journey that God has created, but then when you hear the words that Josh sings you realize that it’s the simple moments that can change the world when you just let Jesus use you where you are.

God will come to you right where you are. He chose you. Let Him in to your heart. Let Him show you His love, so that you can show that love to your neighbor – so that you can change the world.

This concludes my 4 blogs this weekend. I’ll be back next weekend with all-new blogs on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest. Your likes, follows, and comments are always appreciated. Thank You for being part of my online ministry to win souls for Christ. Enjoy this week. May the LORD bless you and keep you.

It’s the 75TH edition of the 3RD life of my personal hit music chart, and it’s still going strong, and it’s still a lot of fun to compile and share each week.

Stars Go Dim debut at # 10 this week. Their 2016 U.S. # 1 smash “You Are Loved” is an awesome song that I hear almost daily on my orange iPod Shuffle at work. You may remember the recent ADT ad campaign on TV featuring the song. Here’s the official music video to remind you of just how much God loves you:

The Major’s Top 10 Hits – Week 74

Every Monday night I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday July 15TH 2018:

  1. “Grace Got You” – MercyMe [# 2 last week / 15TH week on chart]
  2. “Dream Small” – Josh Wilson [3 / 7TH]
  3. “Do It Again” – Elevation Worship [1 / 11TH]
  4. “All In” – Matthew West [4 / 11TH]
  5. “The Way (New Horizon)” – Pat Barrett [5 / 11TH]
  6. “Resurrection Power” – Chris Tomlin [6 / 23RD]
  7. “Good News” – Mandisa [7 / 4TH]
  8. “Living Hope” – Phil Wickham [9 / 2ND]
  9. “Wherever I Go” – Dan Bremnes [10 / 2ND]
  10. “The Breakup Song” – Francesca Battistelli [- / 1ST]

MercyMe scores their 2ND consecutive # 1 smash here on my chart with “Grace Got You”. It’s their follow-up to last year’s “Even If” which spent 2 weeks at # 1 at the end of April of 2017. At 15 weeks it’s also the slowest song to reach # 1 during this current era of this chart – beating out Chris Tomlin’s “Home” which reached # 1 in its 14TH week on this chart a little over a year ago.

“Grace Got You” is quite the catchy up-tempo tune that will encourage you to hum, hope, sing, glide, dance, laugh, and smile.

This concludes my 4 blogs this weekend. The “Good News” is that I’m “All In”, so I’ll be back to “Do It Again” next weekend with all-new blogs on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest. Your likes, follows, and comments are always appreciated. Thank You for being part of my online ministry to win souls for Christ. Enjoy this week.

The Major’s Top 10 Hits – Week 73

Every Monday night I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday July 08TH 2018:

  1. “Do It Again” – Elevation Worship [# 1 last week / 10TH week on chart]
  2. “Grace Got You” – MercyMe [2 / 14TH]
  3. “Dream Small” – Josh Wilson [3 / 6TH]
  4. “All In” – Matthew West [4 / 10TH]
  5. “The Way (New Horizon)” – Pat Barrett [5 / 10TH]
  6. “Resurrection Power” – Chris Tomlin [6 / 22ND]
  7. “Good News” – Mandisa [9 / 3RD]
  8. “Counting Every Blessing” – Rend Collective [10 / 4TH]
  9. “Living Hope” – Phil Wickham [- / 1ST]
  10. “Wherever I Go” – Dan Bremnes [- / 1ST]

It’s the 73RD week of the 3RD-life of this personal weekly hit music chart, and we have two debut artists entering as the 75TH and 76TH hits since the 1ST week.

Phil Wickham’s “Living Hope” enters at # 9. It’s been growing on me for a few weeks now. With sufficient radio airplay on K-LOVE it has the potential of being a long-running smash.

Phil’s biggest hit was the # 1 smash “This Is Amazing Grace” which graced the radio airwaves from the Summer of 2013 straight-through much of 2014. It’s a song that my church family sings out loud and proud on many Sunday mornings during Praise & Worship. Here’s the official music video for that classic:

Back during my pre-salvation secular years I’d compile and publish an end-of-summer chart featuring the top songs of the summer based on weekly chart performance during the 15 Sundays starting with Memorial Day Weekend and ending with Labor Day Weekend here in the U.S. I’m bringing it back. Coming up on a special Tuesday September 04TH 2018 blog I’ll present my Top 10 songs of the Summer of 2018.

There were no new entries on my chart this week, but next week look for Phil Wickham to make his debut appearance with his new track “Living Hope”. I’ve heard it on K-LOVE a few times, and I really like the feel of it.

This concludes my 4 blogs this weekend. I’ll be back next Sunday and Monday to blog twice next weekend. Enjoy your long 4TH Of July holiday here in the U.S. Have fun. Be safe. Make memories that will last a lifetime. Go with God.

The Major’s Top 10 Hits – Week 71

Every Monday night I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday June 24TH 2018:

  1. “Do It Again” – Elevation Worship [# 1 last week / 8TH week on chart]
  2. “All In” – Matthew West [3 / 8TH]
  3. “Grace Got You” – MercyMe [4 / 12TH]
  4. “Dream Small” – Josh Wilson [5 / 4TH]
  5. “The Way (New Horizon)” – Pat Barrett [2 / 8TH]
  6. “Resurrection Power” – Chris Tomlin [7 / 20TH]
  7. “No Matter What” – Ryan Stevenson Ft. Bart Millard [8 / 12TH]
  8. “What A Friend” – Matt Maher [6 / 14TH]
  9. “Counting Every Blessing” – Rend Collective [10 / 2ND]
  10. “Good News” – Mandisa [- / 1ST]

Elevation Worship spends a 2ND week at #1 with their catchy singalong track “Do It Again”. It climbed to # 1 last week on an unpublished chart – dethroning Pat Barrett’s “The Way” after 5 weeks at # 1.

It looks like MercyMe’s “Grace Got You” will be the next # 1 smash high atop the Billboard Christian Airplay chart – perhaps as soon as tomorrow (Tuesday) when their new chart is revealed. It could very well top this chart next Monday – or later.

This concludes my 2 blogs this weekend. It’s back to 4 blogs next weekend on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday.

The Major’s Top 10 Hits – Week 69

Every Monday night I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday June 10TH 2018:

  1. “The Way (New Horizon)” – Pat Barrett [# 1 last week / 6TH week on chart]
  2. “Do It Again” – Elevation Worship [2 / 6TH]
  3. “All In” – Matthew West [4 / 6TH]
  4. “The Answer” – Jeremy Camp [3 / 4TH]
  5. “Dream Small” – Josh Wilson [10 / 2ND]
  6. “Grace Got You” – MercyMe [5 / 10TH]
  7. “No Matter What” – Ryan Stevenson Ft. Bart Millard [6 / 10TH]
  8. “What A Friend” – Matt Maher [7 / 12TH]
  9. “Resurrection Power” – Chris Tomlin [8 / 18TH]
  10. “Reckless Love” – Cory Asbury [9 / 6TH]

It’s the 69TH week of the 3RD life of this weekly hit music chart. The 1ST life didn’t quite make it 7 years from 1985 to 1992. The 2ND life lasted a lot longer – over 14 years – from 1995 to 2010. After a 7-year hiatus it was reborn again for a 3RD life on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017 (here in the U.S.). I don’t know if this 3RD life will last 7 or 14 years or more, but I’m having fun again doing it. I’ll keep it going for as long as the fun continues.

It’s also a part of my online ministry. It introduces some of you to some great positive music on the radio and online that you may not be aware of. Pick any song above, and search for it on YouTube. Listen to it. Listen to the words. See if it makes you feel good. See if it gives you hope. See if it leads you towards the light of God.

This concludes my 4 blogs this weekend. I’ll do it again this upcoming Thursday and Friday. After that this blog will take a rest for a week. There will be no blog next Monday, so the next new Top 10 chart will be revealed in 2 weeks on Monday June 25TH 2018.
