This week, two songs jump up five places: Beck's "Heart Is A Drum" and The Strumbellas' "End Of An Era". The Black Keys are back on the chart with "Year In Review" and Adam Cohen wins the online vote by a landslide with "We Go Home".

Also this week, Stephen Colbert called Beck's music "perfect for massage therapy" on his show last Monday. The Strumbellas were part of an effort with Six Shooter Records to support a girls rock music camp in Toronto and Kings of Leon do a surprise cover of Robyn's "Dancing On My Own" at Lollapalooza on the weekend.

If you like Bobby Bazini and you haven't seen it yet, here's a stripped down version of "Bubblegum". Nice falsetto on this guy.
