Spoon have regained the top spot for the 3rd week in all with this song. Add the one week with the title track of 'Hot Thoughts' at #1 and they are joint 2nd with Sylvan Esso for most weeks on top this year. Portugal The Man were there for 5. Spoon have sold out two shows at The Palace in mid Sept and the show in Madison but Milwaukee still has room. If you want to dig into their back catalog who better as a guide than Britt Daniel, singer and songwriter for them who rated their work for Consequence of Sound.

Radiohead are inducted for the 4th time putting them at 29 on the All-Time Hall of Fame Chart. But it's the first time that an 'old song' has been inducted. This track wasn't on the original 'OK Computer', maybe because it was too straight, sounding like a Roy Orbison song, according to drummer Ed O'Brien. Now the album is now being hailed as foreseeing the future when it was released 20 years ago.

JD McPherson returns to the chart with a new single in at #19. He'll also return to the MN State Fair for two free shows on Friday and Saturday and hopefully join Jill and Brian between 3-7pm Sat.

J. Roddy Walston and the Business are also back with their first new song in four years. They recorded the new album with producer Phil Ek who also worked on the new Fleet Foxes.

The Killers slipped down this week after coming in hot at #10. Fans should keep their ears open for 'Special Surprise' performances like the one just announced in London, and be prepared for a new look after Mark Stoermer has stepped away from bass playing to return to school and now retiring from touring as guitarist, Dave Keuning wants to spend more time with his family.

Alynda Lee Segarra, the woman behind Hurray For The Riff Raff just revealed to Mojo that the first record she brought was 'Spice World' by The Spice Girls! She's now displaying her own version of girl power in the new video for the #15 hit.
