Here are the 20 most popular blog singles on New Music United with notes by the editor:
- The seven minute long free jazz version of a Suicide classic by Neneh Cherry & The Thing conquers the number one spot in true NMU-style! (This must be the first time she shares a chart with her Swedish colleagues from Abba!)
- Danish artists are back on the chart with strong performances by Anders Trentemøller (featuring Marie Fisker singing a Gun Club song!), Choir of Young Believers, Mikael Simpson, Tim Christensen and Efterklang.
- My dear old friend Douglas McCarthy is in the chart with two songs. This time not with Nitzer Ebb, but as a guest vocalist with Motor and with a very strong solo single!
- Three classic songs on the chart this week: Abba, Steely Dan and Carl Douglas! Hahaha…
- And I feel so good about publishing a chart that has a John Cale remix on it. Now, how many people can say that when they wake up in the morning?
