Radio 2 Top 20: Vance Joy dives toward the top spot

Editorial Staff

By Garvia Bailey

Vance Joy's 'Riptide' pulls him closer to the number 1 spot

It didn't take long for Vance Joy to move from the open mic circuit in Melbourne to having a platinum-selling album and a five-record deal with Atlantic Records. He's the Radio 2 Top 20 hot shooter this week, placing Vance in the number three position. The tune is called "Riptide."

Throwback dance break with the Black Keys

Sure, they're about to release a new album called Turn Blue on May 13. Sure, their song "Fever" is the number one song on the Radio 2 Top 20. Sure, both the guys have been through the emotional upheaval of divorce over the last year. Fact is, at the end of the day, the Black Keys just want to make you dance, so dance! This one is from the BK back-catalogue, here's "Lonely Boy."

Matt Andersen brings burly soul to our studio
