Welcome to another week of Uncle Bing’s Favorite Tunes of the Week. This week we find “We No Speak Americano” still at number one. Falling one notch from the runner-up spot is Sneaker, with the song “More Than Just the Two of Us,” which I had been hoping would go to number one. It’s a nice little ballad that sounds a bit like the group Air Supply. But, it looks like it has worn out its welcome and is starting its fall down the chart.
Taking over the number two spot this week is “Leave It.” That should be a strong contender for the top spot next week.
Lower down the chart, we find five new songs entering the Top 25 this week, including tunes from Hootie, The Art of Noise, and Gene Cotton. And, as usual, I’ve linked a few songs to their videos on youtube. Enjoy!
