Things are looking optimistic for America, as Pharrell Williams' track "Happy" rose to the top of the Billboard Digital Downloads chart last week (not that a song named "Sad" was ever at the top). Williams got a continued boost from radio play, Beats ...

Katy Perry and 'Dark Horse' stay atop Digital Downloads chart, A Great Big World and Pitbull follow

"Timber" seemed like it might have been ready to hold down the Digital Downloads chart for a while, but another track had other ideas.

Pitbull and Ke$ha beat Eminem and Rihanna for Digital Downloads in slow sales week

For some odd reason, Christmas singles don't sell. Although the Billboard 200 was full of suddenly-popular CD's containing boatloads of "chestnuts," the Digital Downloads Top 10 didn't reflect the same. Which isn't to say that popular music downloads ...
