I’ve been tracking Atlanta radio airplay every other week for more than two years but was on vacation two weeks ago. So this is my first update in a month: Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” is still on top after 10 weeks. That’s the longest run of any song at least since 2010.

The song was spun 287 times this past week, with maximum airplay on four stations: Star 94 (70), B98.5 (42), Q100 (75) and Wild (91), with 9 more spins with Dave FM.

The only song that might overtake it next week is Maroon 5′s “Payphone,” also receiving top airplay on those said four stations but nothing from Dave. Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” is a close third, with high rotation airplay on B98.5, Q100 and Wild but only mid-rotation on Star.

Here’s the top 10 for the past week:
1. Gotye “Some body that I Used to Know” 287 (-5)
2. Maroon 5 “Payphone” 276 (-8)
3. Carly Rae Jepsen “Call Me Maybe” 262 (-2)
4. Rihanna “Where Have You Been” 191 (+4)
5. Katy Perry “Wide Awake” 190 (+12)
6. Fun. “We are Young” 183 (-20)
7. One Direction “What Makes You Beautiful” 160 (-4)
8. Usher “Scream” 141 (+11)
9. Train “Drive By” 132 (+6)
10 2 Chainz “No Lie” 128 (-11)
