2019 Chart Year - 6/8/19 - Week 28/53 - Toby Macarony Surges to #1, UndreamedPanic, Faulty, & Forest Rain Make Top 10 Debuts, Dental Dam Returns New to the Top 10

It's a hectic week, and as usual, a big cause of such fluster is the movement around the crowning spot. Toby Macarony, vanguard among fandom musicians taking on the latest tango-flavored showtune, jumps to #1 on the Trot 100 off of gains in both metrics. A 50% gain in likes and a 78% gain in views mean the song was bound to take the spot even without being weighted more for its second week of tracking. This nets him over 3,100 chart points, a welcome jolt from the past few weeks with sub-2,000 totals, and the biggest since Life Box's first week at #1, where it pulled in over 3,200 chart points.

Life Box itself is down to #2 and is the only song from last week's top 5 to remain in the zone, with Punk Rocks slipping 5-6 and Dome tumbling 2-8 as its compatriots. (Brony Piano Medley and Take Me Away, last week's #3 and #4, fall to #18 and #30 respectively) In their places are some fresh faces: The Day it Turns Around finally makes it on its fifth frame, up 8-5. Friends, the latest UndreamedPanic single, lands at #4. PelleK's metal take on the main theme returns to the zone, up 6-3.

Fresh stuff is afoot in the lower half of the zone as well: two new debuts arrive. Faulty's Ascend catapults to #9, and Forest Rain's Chrissy breaks out at #10. More peculiarly, Dental Dam returns to the chart, a minor hit from 2016, now at the lofty position of #7 (easily a new peak, besting its original #34 top) thanks to a new mix of the song which also adds TheMusicReborn to the track.
