In what can be considered a miraculous resurrection, "The Sound" is the most added song at Modern Rock/Alternative radio this week!

"The Sound" also vaults a spot to No. 31 on Alternative songs and is experiencing a resurgence. It falls a spot on Christian Rock.

"Your Love Is a Song" also continues to do well, making it's debut on Christian CHR, entering at No. 27. On Christian Songs overall, the song takes a one-spot jump to No. 36.

Great work with the requesting! See the bottom of today's post for instructions on how to help out!

"The Sound" is re-surging on U.S. Modern Rock radio. To keep it going, make sure you're requesting the single at your local alternative station! Also, thanks to your efforts, the latest Footsoldiers campaign has been successful so far!

Let's keep it up! We MISSED all the countdowns last night. So, here are the voting links/instructions to get that going again:

Q101's Top 9 at 9 (Chicago)
KPNT's 5 Songs That Don't Suck (St. Louis)
91x Christy Taylor's Really Big Countdown (San Diego) (email, subject line: Really Big Countdown Submission)

^If we can keep these up until the guys get back from Europe two weeks from now, we will have done an excellent job!
