The Lindy Hop was a dance craze during the 1920s.
The Lindy Hop is also the perfect way to describe Canadian singer/songwriter Lindy Vopnfjord’s journey up the CBC Radio 2 Top 20. Lindy has "hopped" his way up the chart three times in 2013. All three singles from his album Young Waverer have made it into the top 10. A lot of his success has to do with you! This week you gave Lindy the "Most On-Line Votes" hopping his song "The Limit" up to number 6.
Check out CBC Music's in-depth interview with Lindy the tallest man in Canadian rock. Here's his top 10 song on the chart this week, "The Limit" performed live.
Here's some real "Lindy Hoppers" in action. Enjoy!
If you'd told the cool kids of Arcade Fire a few years ago that one day their most successful album would have more of a conga drum focus, they might have laughed in your fac. Regardless, Arcade Fire will not budge from that number two spot with their groovy song "Reflektor."
