New Music United Top 20 Chart (May 4, 2012)

Here are the 20 most popular blog singles on New Music United this week with notes by the editor:

  • As the Danish TV series “Broen” (“The Bridge”) continues its success abroad, so does the amazing title music from Choir of Young Believers!
  • The moving comments here and here on the Louis (Blues Boy) Jones blog singles by family and friends pull them into the Top 20 Charts. Who would have guessed that these 1962 recordings would get a new life on a fan based social music blog with new music?
  • Also, the founder of rock & roll with a distortion pedal, Link Wray, is back on the chart. Don’t you just love it?
  • New blog singles from Public Image Ltd, The Beach Boys and Kate Bush gives you an idea about what this blog is all about.
  • Combining new and old music across borders, genres and time, this week’s chart features music from 1958 to 2012 and from at least eight countries. Don’t get me started on the music genres!

I have been publishing a weekly Top 20 chart every Friday once a week for a year now. In the future, this chart will be published monthly. It will create more suspense, more rotation and more time to promote the chart on social media. Thank you for listening.
