2016 Chart Year - 12/26/15 - Week 4/52 - Delta Brony Leads with The Spectacle

We've got an artist finally getting his first Trot 100 #1! Delta Brony, well known for his eurobeat remixes of songs and his mashups of pony tracks with video game songs, finally lands a mammoth hit with The Spectacle (Remix). What's especially notable about this crowning is that it was not a debut and done deal: It started out two weeks ago at #5, climbed the following week to #4 despite lowering buzz because of the episode wearing off, and now crowns on its third week as we enter the hiatus. Want more details, including a breakdown of how the #1 did specifically, the top 10, other highlights, and current projections for the 2016 year end? Check past the break!

So, The Mane Attraction had its first full week of impressions, so can you guess what happened this week on the chart? That's right...we got a second flurry of I'll Fly remixes! Actually, it's what you'd expect: a ton of remixes of The Magic Inside (initially speculated to be called I Am Just a Pony) debut this week and they debut big! The largest is not a debut, however, but the instrumental that was released after the animatic, produced by BassBeastJD. Thanks to 4 versions in total contributing to its points, it gets significant boosts in all of them that propel it to a strong #1 slot! Find out more of the top 10 and other news past the break.

December 2014's Reweight and News

As you guys may have noticed, quite a few things have changed mid-year regarding this chart:

  • Certain categories of songs such as utilities were deemed ineligible.
  • The eligibility of brony pop covers and similar items were reneged.
  • Songs with music videos and being nothing but music videos were weighted against.
  • The likes metric was added to the chart.
  • The tracking week was altered to mirror the Billboard tracking week.
So that my data isn't a garbled mess come year-end, I have begun updating my backlog internally to reflect these changes. Charts from 2/14/15 to 5/30/15 are complete now, along with all charts since because the formula hasn't changed for them. However, due to a lack of like data and records of the raw data, earlier weeks have been taking longer to complete. At this point, I crawl out of the woodwork to announce that the entirety of December is finished! Be aware that recurrency will be a bit out of whack due to the schedule change, the order of the updates and all that stuff, but otherwise, this is a far more accurate perspective on the hits of a particular week, especially due to the retroactive like metric.

AnimatedJames Spends a Third Week at #1

Welcome to the new chart site! The Equestrian Trot 100 improves in multiple ways from the Brony Music Billboard: the number of songs, the method of data collection, and also the recurrency and depreciation rules. On every Wednesday, data is collected, and the top 10 shall be announced in a post like this.

  • I Am a Parasprite debuted at #1 and OhPonyBoy made a top 10 debut (12/20/14)
  • Winter's F***ed Up debuted at #1 and Aviators made a top 10 debut (12/27/14)
  • Winter's F***ed Up remained at #1, Wild Fire surged to #2 thanks to the new remix, and Do You Want to See the Moon Rise returned to the top 10. (1/3/14)
This week's big news is that "Winter" holds at #1 for a third week, while Mandopony's megacollaboration Do They Know It's Christmas debuts at #3, We Dreamt Our Dream returns to the top 10, and Squarehead's Under Our Spell remix climbs into the top 10 for the first time. More info past the break!
