Welcome to another week of Uncle Bing’s Favorite Tunes. This week we find that the number one song of the past two weeks, “Heat of the Moment” drops to number five, allowing the following four songs to move up one notch each. This finds Yolanda Be Cool with the new number one song, “We No Speak Americano”. This song topped the real pop charts in Britain, Germany, Spain, and others in 2010. And now it is topping mine.
The big movers this week are Bananarama up nine spots to number eight and Vampire Weekend up eight spots to number 14. The new entries on this week’s chart are Taco’s “Putting on the Ritz” and Tom Petty’s “Free Falling”.
I’ve hot linked a few songs on the list to their respective videos on Youtube. Yolanda Be Cool’s video is quite good. I’ve even linked to the famous M&M’s commercial for The The’s “This is the Day” video. Enjoy!
