2017 Chart Year - 8/26/17 - Week 39/52 - Magpiepony & Jay Man lead Fifth Week, Mantlegen Has First Top 10, 4everfreebrony & Aurelleah Debut

In a busy week everywhere except the top of the chart, Dream of You continues its dominance, though at a vulnerably low amount of chart points. Aurelleah has a good week, both debuting his new remix of You're In My Head Like a Catchy Song at #6 and sending his new original On Wings of Moonlight all the way up to #2, up from its #5 debut last week. 4everfreebrony is no slouch either, debuting Hello at #5 and recovering Chant of Benevolence 4-3. False Crown, off its win on the July polls, surges back 12-4, its original peak. Finally, debuting in the top 10 for the first time is Mantlegen, landing Fly In at #8. Find out more past the break!

2017 Chart Year - 8/19/17 - Week 38/52 - Magpiepony & Jay Man lead Fourth Week, 4everfreebrony Surges, Aurelleah & Vylet Debut

It's quite the busy week on the charts, though not at the pole position, which is once again led by Dream Of You, now in its fourth nonconsecutive (and second consecutive) week atop, once again with under 3,500 chart points. It's possible the return of Season 7 could cause it to resurge since The Perfect Pear will get its proper USA airing, or maybe some new song based on the episode (or even one of the other contenders from earlier on) could come and steal away the spotlight. Regardless, where things get interesting is with the #2 slot, taken up this week by Thought I'd Let You Know by 4everfreebrony, up all the way from #25 after its re-entry. Boasting a new music video, the song's still only strong enough to barely miss 2,000 points however. Elsewhere in the top 10 are debuts from Aurelleah and Vylet, each bringing performers their first top 10s: in Aurelleah's case, On Wings of Moonlight marks both the chart debuts and top 10 debuts of featured artists 1004Lights and Megan McDuffee, while for Vylet Pony, OMNI is his featured buddy.

2017 Chart Year - 8/12/17 - Week 37/52 - Dream of You Returns for Third Frame, PrinceWhateverer Debuts and Silva Hound Debuts *and* Climbs

Dream of You returns to the leading spot for a third nonconsecutive week. It initially led for 2 weeks off its debut. Pointwise, however, it's considerably weaker, meaning something new could easily take over in the next week or two. Say for example Daybreaker, the Solar Empress, up 3-2 and coasting with about consistent point levels. Further down the top 10, our top debut comes from PrinceWhateverer with his new track False Crown landing at #4. His track Resilience stumbles a bit 5-7. Such is not the case for Silva Hound, who nabs both a top 10 debut with Sound of the Summer (#8), but also gets a track newly into the top 10 with Battle Horns (12-10). Find out more past the break!

2017 Chart Year - 7/29/17 - Week 35/52 - Vylet Tops Chart For First Time, Karen Warren Gets First Top 10 Thanks to Jyc Row & WoodLore

The Watcher, which debuted last week at #5, makes a great surge this week to the top of the chart, granting Vylet Pony his first chart topper ever. This also adds to the accolades of the featured acts: this is Silva Hound's fourth leader (after Wild Fire and Come Alive in 2015 and Egomania in 2016) and Lavender Harmony's second (Come Alive's second week in 2016 had Lavender's remix as part of the tracking). The rest of the top 10 mostly just shifts, except for the tail spot: Flamethrone Legacy, the top voted song of June, surges in 20-10, giving Karen Warren her first top 10 appearance on the chart as a featured act.

2017 Chart Year - 7/22/17 - Week 34/52 - Magpiepony and Jay Man Lead Second Week, Vylet Pony and Aviators Nab New Top 10s

Dream of You leads for a second frame, having cooled down considerably after episode hype but still rocking over 4,000 chart points. Hot on its tail is the rapidly rising Daybreaker, the Solar Empress from Jyc Row, which more than doubled its points this week to rise over 3,300. Also new this week is The Watcher at #5, a massive music video project involving the talents of multiple musicians, including Vylet Pony, Silva Hound, and Lavender Harmony, and House of Glass at #6, a different take on the track by legacy brony musician Aviators. 4everfreebrony also released a new recording of the track this week, landing at #11.

2017 Chart Year - 7/15/17 - Week 33/52 - Magpiepony and Jay Man Top Chart, Half of the Top 10 Cycles Out

This is quite the turbulent week: lots of new stuff in the top 10, lots of new stuff in general, and a lot of long-lasting tracks bit the dust simultaneously as the more resilient survivors still took heavy hits. At the summit lie Jay Man and Magpiepony, debuting at #1 with their new track Dream of You, inspired by the recent Perfect Pear episode. Prior, the duo peaked at #2 with the 2016 and 2017 hit I'll Keep Trying. Debuting right behind with a point total that would lead most other weeks this year, Chant of Benevolence lands at #2. The one other really noticeable top 10 ripple is Crystal Corruption re-entering at #5, a new peak. This has been prompted by a third party drawing attention to the song with a usage, finally being brought to our attention. Find out more past the break!

Note: This chart has been updated due to the lack of the inclusion of Flamethrone Legacy; this has been corrected with its placement at #14.

2017 Chart Year - 7/8/17 - Week 32/52 - Einarx Lands First Topper Thanks to Remix & Compilation Album Spotlight, DJT, Xavi, & PrinceWhateverer Get New Top 10s

Ponies at Dawn has been a frequent inhabitor of these charts, bringing out multiple crowd-pleasers that dominated the vote scene and overall becoming a promo machine thanks to the Cider Party channel. However, until now, they had no #1 to their name, but that's rectified this week as Guardian by Einarx leads the Trot 100! An accidental title track to the latest album, Guardians, Einarx made a VIP (self-remix) of the track for the album, which surged in popularity with over 9,500 views and just short of 700 likes. This week in general was busy, as 2 more songs debut in the top 10 and the entire top 5 gets flushed out save for the last #1. Find out more past the break!

2017 Chart Year - 7/1/17 - Week 31/52 - Aurelleah Lands New Topper With Daybreaker, 4everfreebrony & Jyc Row Get New Top 10s

These charts are late so let's get to the nitty gritty: we've got a new leader already! Daybreaker ascends 5-1 in its fourth week, strong off a good showing on May's Top 10 Votes video. Find out more past the break!

2017 Chart Year - 6/24/17 - Week 30/52 - Wasteland Wailers Lead Fourth Week

In a relatively uneventful week, Wasteland Wailers' cover of On Hold leads a fourth week on the chart. The one other shakeup is that Run Away is quickly losing traction, finally taking a dip below the top 2, now down 2-3. Find out more past the break!

Friday, June 2, 2017

2017 Chart Year - 6/17/17 - Week 29/52 - Wasteland Wailers Take Third Week, 4everfreebrony lands in Top 10

Last week was a tight race, but now the stakes have calmed. Run Away takes a notable dip in points, allowing On Hold a comfortable lead as it helms a third week atop the chart. The top 4 all hold their positions, however at #5 comes a surger: Daybreaker by Aurelleah, climbing from #8 in its second week on the chart. Right behind it is Share With Me by 4everfreebrony, a new single trying to harken back to the early style of songwriting amongst the fandom. In addition to Run Away's point slide, fellow Choices single Midnight Frenzy takes a tanking down 5-8. Right outside the top 10 are 2 big singles making strides: The Learner's Paradox, hot off a new remix penned by Hay Tea and Sky Runner, re-enters at #13 (just under its original #12 peak), and Battlegrounds, the latest StealingShad3Z single, blasts in 18-12.

2017 Chart Year - 6/3/17 - Week 27/52 - Wasteland Wailers Land First Topper, NekoWolf Gets First Top 10 With Exiark

After 14 weeks dominated by a single artist, we finally have a new leader on the Trot 100! On Hold, a cover of YourEnigma's 2014 smash hit by Wasteland Wailers with Brittany Church, takes over the chart in a 3-1 move. In addition, the Russian folk cover of Pinkie's Brew hits a new peak of #7 in its return to the zone along with the arrival of Exiark & NekoWolf thanks to the new track Shards of Darkness.

2017 Chart Year - 4/15/17 - Week 20/52 - Run Away Leads Fourth Week

Run Away continues leading, though its advantage is slowly beginning to cool down, especially as Project Choices hype dies down. Compared to 800 likes and 30,000 views last week, this song only touts 550 likes and 25,000 views this week. In addition, we've got a brand new top 10: Tempora's Requiem. Launching at #7, this song gets an early start thanks to cross-promotion with the popular comic series Timey Wimey. Find out more past the break!

2017 Chart Year - 4/8/17 - Week 19/52 - Run Away Leads Third Week

This was a slow week, even in comparison to other slow weeks. To put in perspective, the #100 song this week racks up a bit under 80 points; usually the number's closer to 100, maybe 120. In any case, Run Away runs away with the crown for a third straight week, though I do note that its point totals appear to staggering a little faster. In fact, that's true for the whole Project Choices crew, namely the first track Trust in Me Child (which drops off the chart entirely), First Flight (down 3-4, swapping places with From the Ashes), and Midnight Frenzy, which is already down to 4,500 points per week. Could this be due to the hype dying thanks to a confirmation that the animation project shall not be pursued? Maybe! Time will tell and we'll see if the tracks drop positions like a rock next week. Otherwise, there's nothing new in the top 10, though two songs reach new peaks: Just Me climbs 10-8 and Just a Game notches up 7-5. Find out more past the break!

2017 Chart Year - 4/1/17 - Week 18/52 - Run Away Leads Second Week, Vocal Score & Scarlet Harmony Hit Top 10

Run Away continues its dominance, actually ending up bigger than it was last week, almost doubling its points this week, this time with a bigger slant towards views than likes. It keeps 4-week leader Midnight Frenzy at bay handily, and now a third Project Choices song joins them (First Flight, 6-3) to lock up the whole top 3! Lower down in the top 10, we have a new peaker: Awoken climbs 10-8. Also, there's a brand new top 10: Just Me is up 20-10, after peaking at #12 upon its debut. Find out more past the break!

2017 Chart Year - 3/11/17 - Week 15/52 - Spiral Harmonies Leads for a Third Week Along With WeimTime's Runner-Up Re-Entry, Aurelleah, PrinceWhateverer, Vylet Pony & Jyc Row Get New Top 10s

Like last week, Project Choices hype is in the air. Midnight Frenzy leads for a third straight week following its debut, though it's down this week to about 10,000 points from 26,000. It's joined this week by a familiar face: Trust in Me, Child re-enters the chart at the runner-up slot following a new WIP for Project Choices (which counts for the song's streaming because it is the only song featured). Another familiar face is PrinceWhateverer, whose rerecord of Between Fairy Tales and Happy Endings enters the chart at a healthy #3. This week in general was rather active for the top 10, with three songs returning (Trust as mentioned, You & Me, up 12-8, and Say Goodbye to the Holiday's microThunder remix, up 11-10) and three songs making their first appearances (Between as mentioned, Out of Your Mind at #6 by Vylet Pony and Lyde, and Friendship is Epic by Jyc Row, up 47-9).

2017 Chart Year - 3/4/17 - Week 14/52 - Spiral Harmonies Leads a Second Week and Takes the Year-End

Midnight Frenzy leads for a second week amid Project Choices hype that also brings First Flight back to the top 10 (19-6, after climbing from #48 last week). Also, fueled by new versions, Peppermint (with a remix by Silva Hound) and Here on the Moon (covered by Pinkie Rose) re-enter at #2 and #3 respectively, new peaks for both. Also, 4everfreebrony gets a new track on the chart at #8 with Just a Game and The Blob Symphony returns thanks to a VIP remix at #7 (it previously peaked at #5 in both 2014 and 2015).

2017 Chart Year - 2/25/17 - Week 13/52 - Duo Cartoonist Brings Third Act to No. 1, 4 Other New Top 10s

We've got another active week on the chart, with a whopping 5 songs brand new to the top 10! Biggest by a long stretch (it has 900% more points than the #2) is Midnight Frenzy by Spiral Harmonies with the vocals of PK Emi. Part of the Choices series (which previously had toppers on the chart with WeimTime LLC's Trust in Me, Child and KC.Guzman's First Flight, the latter of which jumps 48-19 this week), this is a first appearance on the chart at all for both artists! Continuing the trend of remixes prompting high re-entries, the VIP version of StrachAttack's Mustache Ride gives the artist his new career peak as the song re-enters at the lofty place of #3! Also present this week is a continuation of the Stellae Key series with Et Les Toilles Chantent, which is the highest peaking of the 4 songs at #5. The last two debuts are Bang Out at #7 from the duo of Vylet Pony and Silva Hound and Twi's Light, The L-Train latest single featuring FenPony, landing at #10. Check out more past the break!

2017 Chart Year - 2/11/17 - Week 11/52 - Luna's Future Leads for 20th Week, Loads of New Top 10s

Luna's Future returns to the summit for a 20th week, its first time in 2017. Competition hasn't been very stiff for the past few weeks, so it was basically a question of when big debuts would dry up for when it would retake the crown, as it was lurking in the top 3 for the past few months. This period of low activity has however led to what has happened to happen big, and indeed we have 4 brand new top 10s this week! First up is Stars & Sky, a first for Progressive Element, boosted by a remix by UndreamedPanic, landing in the runner-up slot. In a quick side note for the one returning top 10, You & Me rebounds hard 11-5 after peaking at #3 2 weeks ago. A Changeling Can Change (JoinedTheHerd) is a new top 10 for the artist, jumping 23-7. Empire Past returns to the chart at a brand new peak thanks to the support of not just one (PVNK) but 2 remixes (UndreamedPanic). Finally, Sun and Moon, after peaking at #12, hits a new height in jumping 21-9 thanks to the power of votes kicking in. Find out more past the break!

2017 Chart Year - 2/4/17 - Week 10/52 - Luna Jax Gets First Topper, Kadenza & Zero Get First Top 10

Back to You comes back to the Trot 100 in gusto, as it re-enters the chart at #1 this week! Luna Jax finally gets not only his first top 10 but also his first #1. This is also 4everfreebrony's second top 10, as he features on the track; the last time he appeared on the top was as one of three features on SlyphStorm's Soldiers of the Night. In the rest of the top 10, the biggest news is Kadenza and Zero hitting the top 10 in their latest collab called Chaos. Find out more past the break!

UPDATE: Little Dreams originally did not count all eligible remixes for its re-entry. It has been corrected and it now thus re-enters at #7, a new peak and the first time it's made it to the top 10! Also, there was an error calculating Horse Christmas' point total.

2017 Chart Year - 1/28/17 - Week 9/52 - Come Alive Leads a Consecutive Frame, Fourth Total, While Three Songs Make Top 10

Come Alive keeps strong this week as it leads the Trot 100 for a fourth nonconsecutive frame. Notably, this is the first time it's strung multiple weeks on top in a run (It led one week each in 2015 and 2016 prior to this current streak). Meanwhile, the top 5 heats up with 2 brand new entries: Foozogz gets another song to #3 with You & Me (he previously debuted in that slot in 2016 with Acceptance), while DJT & ExplodingPonyToast make it to the top 10 for the first time with Sugar Shy. Right outside that zone, WoodLore gets a new top 10 with My Sweet Peace, finally re-entering thanks to a remix by Jyc Row, which ended up getting the most votes in the recent poll for December songs. Find out more past the break!

UPDATE: Due to an error in calculating the point total for Horse Christmas, the chart has had a slight change.

2017 Chart Year - 1/21/17 - Week 8/52 - Silva Hound Tops a Third Time With Come Alive, 4everfreebrony Jumps, & WeimTime Returns

After re-entering last week in the runner up slot, Come Alive now tops the chart on a relatively low activity week. This means that in each phase of its music video's development, it has led the chart for one week. Incidentally, it's qualified for the running year-end, so it looks like it has a good chance to land on a third year-end after making it to 2015 and 2016. Close behind is Hoping, which zooms to #2 from right outside the top 10 at #11 thanks to a new piano version of the track with the current vocals, resembling the original 2015 release of the song. My Only Friends by 4everfreebrony also jumps 9-5, a new peak, and Smell the Roses recovers 10-7. The last nugget of big news is that Trust in Me, Child heads back into the zone, up 13-6. With a major project on the way soon, it could be poised to gain even further (it's already the top song of the year on the running year-end). Find out more past the break!

2017 Chart Year - 1/14/17 - Week 7/52 - Jyc Row & Francis Vace Nab First Number One, Silva Hound Returns

In quite the surprising event (even for the main artist himself), Celestial Berserkers has received a flurry of attention, leading to a massive boost in likes and views allowing the track to zoom from near the bottom of the top 40 all the way to the top! It was big enough to fend off the third run of Come Alive, potentially its last since it's off the final music video made for it (the previous bouts at the top were thanks to works in progress). In further news for the duo, their other tracks Warriors of Griffonstone also hits the top 10 for the first time, jumping 40-4. Find out more past the break!
