2011 has barely begun and some of the songs on the Wild 10 Countdown are vying for the top spot. From the top 6 six songs, they are generating a lot of airplays on various radio shows. Hot Mess by Chromeo is considered a 2010 track but the new version with Elly Jackson of LaRoux has not been released as a single and considered a 2011 release. Little Voice by Rebekah Higgs is another 2010 release but is getting plays elsewhere.
One song that I was supposed to be out of the countdown was Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) by Arcade Fire. If it was for The Strombo Show on Sunday night, I wouldn’t get rid of it on the countdown.
The only new entry on the countdown is Chinatown by Destroyer. Kaputt will be released on January 25, but it got leaked online before its release date.
A new number one song after Rebekah Higgs was on top for one week. Without further ado, the top 10.
1. Getcha Good – Jenn Grant (Replacing “How I Met You” and she’s the January X3 Artist of The Month. The music video was released last week)
2. Little Voice – Rebekah Higgs (dropping down from the top spot)
3. Peripheral Visionaries – Young Galaxy (the album is nearing soon)
4. Stamp – The Rural Alberta Advantage (falling down a spot but still going strong on the airplay)
5. Hot Mess (featuring Elly Jackson) – Chromeo
6. Plath Heart – Braids (jumping up a few spots as they are in Ottawa on Friday)
7. Wild Folk – Jim Bryson & The Weakerthans (still a local favourite and hanging around the countdown)
8. I Want The Lights On After Dark – Memphis (new entry)
9. Chinatown – Destroyer (new entry)
10. Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) – Arcade Fire (it should be the final time on the countdown)
