All the power of football season can’t keep the esteemed Mr. Beiber down for long. He returns to the top spot, followed by three of the biggest teams in pro and college football, including the Fighting Irish, who appear for the first time this season. The Buckeyes and Cowboys hang around from last week. Finally the Jonas Brothers make a strong show at #5. Their current tour is scheduled to hit Texas in mid-September so fans are doing some, well, second-to-last-minute shopping.
The Longhorns, who didn’t make the cut last week, show up again this week to kick off the bottom five. Similarly, Phish pops in randomly again, as they have been over the past few months, never hanging around for much more than a week. Rush drops to #8 from #4, hanging in for a 3rd week on the countdown. The fact that Lady Gaga is legging her way through Canada may be the reason she’s also tumbled from her customary spot in the top 3.
Finally we have our little local music show appearing at #10. According to the clock on the wall we’re about a month and a half out from this year’s festival, so not surprising to see interest start to bubble up. I’m sure it will be a common sight in the coming weeks. This year’s headliners include The Eagles, Muse, and M.I.A. Oh, and Phish, too. Maybe that’s why they keep popping up.
