Things nearly return to normal in the top 5 as the Vancouver Games are behind us. Though it seems some folks are already setting their sights a couple years into the future and investigating what our friends in England will be doing in 2012 in London. Taylor Swift returns to a familiar position, top of the countdown, followed by newcomer and sudden-very-hot-ticket Phoenix.
Phoenix is a French alternative rock band who’ve been touring on their most recent album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, which received a 2009 Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album. I realize our page for them is “Phoenix The Band”, but that’s because Phoenix “The City in Arizona” was around before they were a garage band in suburban Paris in 1995, and, more importantly, before they became famous.
The esteemed Mr. Bieber returns to #3, while John Mayer climbs to number #4. The bottom five shows signs of what’s to come, as 2 conference championships appear, the Big East and the SEC. Certainly they may post bigger showings next week, before some form of March Madness / Final Four terms take over. It is is March, after all. Calibash heads up a couple notches, while the Dave Matthews Band peaks in at 7 and the WWE and the upcoming Wrestlemania hold steady at 8 this week.
