The Wild 10 Countdown for October 13, 2010

This week’s countdown is somewhat slow because it was the Thanksgiving weekend in Canada. There was one debut and almost the majority of the songs are steady. Here’s the top 10.

1. The Hair Song – Black Mountain (2nd week at #1)

2. Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) – Arcade Fire (Going up a spot as it’s still my favourite song and it’s also my new co-host’s favorite too)

3. We, Myself, And I – Shad (Down a spot)

4. Quarry Hymns – Land of Talk (Steady. The reason why it hasn’t gone down because a certain host and show from another station played it last week)

5. Something Else – Diamond Rings (A replacement to Wait & See. Highly anticipating the new album)

6. Tell Me, Cancer – Forest City Lovers (Steady. The video is still nice to watch)

7. Up in the Belfry – Winchester Warm (Steady as they will be performing at Raw Sugar Cafe for the weekend)

8. Not The Stars – Allie Hughes (It’s on the CKCU Top 20 Albums Chart and I wonder why?)

9. Let’s Call It a Day – Renee Yoxon (Replacing “The Look of Love”)

10. Constellation – Jim Bryson and The Weakerthans (New entry as the song was released as a free mp3, limited to the first 200 people)

The Wild 10 Countdown for October 6, 2010


This week’s countdown has a new number one song throughout the countdown, I forgot to say “The Wild 10 Countdown” on air.   It was my own mistake because of POP Montreal materials. One of the new entries on the countdown isn’t a brand new song. Some of the songs on the countdown were based on appearances at POP Montreal. Here’s the top 10 for the first week of October, 2010;

1. The Hair Song – Black Mountain (1st Week at #1)

2. We, Myself, And I – Shad (Going up a spot. TSOL now released in the States)

3. Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) – Arcade Fire (Up a spot. I’m still liking the song. The new co-host likes the band)

4. Quarry Hymns – Land of Talk (Formerly at #1, falls down 3 spots)

5. Wait & See – Diamond Rings (New entry. His full length debut album comes out on October 26)

6. Tell Me, Cancer – Forest City Lovers (New entry. The music video was just released)

7. Up In The Belfry – Winchester Warm (Up 2 spots.)

8. Not The Stars – Allie Hughes (Up 2 spots. Just supporting her)

9. Elephant Lamp – The Balconies (New entry. They won $5000 on Friday night in Ottawa for this competition and got to see them at POP Montreal.)

10. The Look of Love – Renee Yoxon (New entry. Her debut album, Let’s Call It Day was released on Friday night. For Jazz listeners.)
