Another week and another new #1 track for the Carrigan Countdown, as Adele's "Hello" continues its astronomical rise. Adele takes the top spot after only being on the Countdown for a grand total of 3 weeks - debuting at 29, before jumping to 8, then this weeks number 1. 
X Ambassadors, the first band that was able to hang onto it's #1 spot for 2 consecutive weeks, gets bumped to 2, and another fast riser has her hopes of a #1 single dashed for at least one week - Taylor Swifts "Wildest Dreams" came in at number 3. 
Another big jump came from R.City featuring Adam Levine, which had "Locked Away" jump into the top 5 songs of the nation at number 5. Rounding out the top 5, Ed Sheeran's "Photograph" came in at the 4 spot. 
Some big fallers were Omi with "Cheerleader" tumbling to 14. Hedley's "Hello" was able to crack into the top 20 at the 20 spot.
