The Top Songs Box

The Top Songs Box
  1. Select a tab to see the top songs (so far\P for that day). Notable dates like Good Friday or Easter are labeled.
  2. Songs are ranked by how many different churches include that song and they are compared to the same (or similar \Pdate the previous year). +1 means that song is 1 spot more popular this year than it was last year, -2 means it is two spots less popular than last year, "new" means that the song wasn't in the catalog last year, and a dash - means it is in the same position. Top Songs are recalculated every night, but because most churches don't have songs planned more than a couple weeks ahead of time, the later weeks have less data to draw from and will see more drastic change as that week approaches and more churches add songs to their plans.
  3. Hover over any song to hear an iTunes sample. If you believe an iTunes sample is for the wrong song, please email our support team at support@planningcenteronline.com
  4. Songs in bold are songs that already exist in your account. Click them to go to that song in your account, or click other non-bold songs to quickly add them to your account.
  5. Click next to see the next page of results.
