Mercury Distinguished 50

* A surprise upset disrupts the top of the charts this week as Austra's "The Future" unexpectedly reclaims #1, overtaking the lead Blue Hawaii's "Lilac" had in the eleventh hour! "The Future" had previously hit #1 for one week in late June before swooning back into the lower regions of the charts and even completely dropping out at one point.

* Blue Hawaii's "Lilac," meanwhile, maintains a solid hold on the #2 position, being one of three songs in the top five to be unchanged from last week. The other two are Austra's "Home," remaining at #4, and TR/ST's "Sulk," ever-so-consistent as it defends the #5 position for the fourth consecutive week.

* Alice in Videoland's "Something New" slides off to #3 this week, but still has a sound footing. The same might not be said of Feathers's "Land of the Innocent," however; giving up its extended vacation in the Top 3 with a four position drop to #7.

* A couple new highs in the Top 10 this week: North Korean anthem "Where Are You, Dear General?" gained one more place to #6 while Ashbury Heights achieved their first Top 10 song with "Phantasmagoria," jumping twenty-one to #8.

* Amidst the recent strength enjoyed by Austra, "Spellwork" re-enters the Top 10 once again to reach its highest position since late April, settling at #9. For the first time since late June, Austra now has three songs simultaneously charting in the Top 10.

* Four new entries this week, led by Club Veg's "Yuppie Rap;" forging a strong debut at #15 despite having only started receiving plays on Wednesday. Of the three new re-entries, Haysi Fantayzee scores the highest at #19 with "John Wayne Is Big Leggy," logging into the charts for the first time in nearly one year.

* The lower half of the Top 20 remains mostly constant. A couple songs joined this section after falling out of the Top 10, Gary Numan's "My Name Is Ruin" bearing the brunt of this decline; dropping seven to hit a new low.
