The top three remain the same, though not in the same order this week. How many weeks to come is really the only question at this point. With the wind (of announcing 30 new tour dates) at his back, the esteemed Mr. Bieber returns to the top spot. It remains to be seen how long this taste of former glory will last. The extension of the Believe Tour is a good sign the severity of Bieber Fever hasn’t ebbed too much.
The Knicks make an appearance on the countdown. Best I can figure is the game against Rockets this week where one Jeremy Lin returned to MSG. Bieber Fever may still be infectious, but it appears medical science was able to find a cure for Linsanity.
The Cowboys hold steady at #5, as playoff hopes stay alive.
The BCS kicks off the bottom five as the only bowl game survivor. It’s followed by a new face on the countdown, though not in music in general: Fleetwood Mac. The band is going on tour again in 2013 for the 35th anniversary of the Rumors album. As it is still one of the best selling albums of all time, that’s a pretty good excuse.
Well, that’s it for this year. I’ll be back next year, hope it goes well for all our readers.
