Radio 2 Top 20: Nicole Atkins is living the dream

Editorial Staff

By Garvia Bailey

Girl, you sound amazing

Nicole Atkins picked up the most online votes this week on the strength of a tune that came to her in a dream. In the dream, David Byrne of Talking Heads was serenading Atkins with the tune at a nightclub. She woke up and recorded "Girl You Look Amazing" into her phone. It's in at number 10 this week.

Grabbing the spotlight

Adam Baldwin has spent a lot of time as a fantastic sideman. He's been an integral part of the Matt Mays sound since the very beginning. Now, Baldwin is taking centre stage. He's a new entry on the chart, the tune is called "Love You With My Eyes Closed."

A new number one

Beck's latest album, Morning Phase, leans less towards brainy-pop and more towards quiet introspection. Beck eases into the top spot this week with "Blue Moon." There is no video for the tune, but check out this Douglas Gordon video of an elephant spinning out to Beck. What does it mean??
