Timberlake, Macklemore/Lewis Two Songs Each In Spotify US Top 10, Daft Punk Makes Big Splash

  |   Comments

There's been a lot of fanfare about a new single from Daft Punk and I confess I'm not sure what's created the buzz but it was a Top 10 song on Spotify in the US and the UK this past week. I might help it get an extra spin and go listen to it myself just to find out why people are talking about this.

I started with Daft Punk because I'm more tired of talking about Macklemore & Ryan Lewis than you are tired of me talking about them. What you're not tired of listening to them and that's fucking exhausting to me. They have the #1 and #3 song in the US this week. At least they only made the Top 10 once in the UK. I'll take it. Justin Timberlake has a pair of songs in the Top 10 this week as well.

Pink (no, I'm not giving her the exclamation point spelling) and Bruno Mars have been big on Billboard as well as iTunes and they're also getting streamed with frequency at Spotify.

Looking overseas, "Pompeii" has been #1 for more weeks than I can count. I've still not listened to the song but Bastille has the music of the moment in Britain. I'm told Imagine Dragons imagine themselves as Coldplay, which is probably why they're doing well at the moment. I'll stick with the original rather than the copy.
