Listen to the Radio 2 Top 20 (Aug. 23)


This week's poll is now closed. Click here to vote on next week's chart.

Only one new track on the chart this week. Well, it’s not really new since it’s been on the chart before. What is amazing, though, is that City and Colour’s “The Lonely Life" enters all the way up at number four. 

If you’re looking for a really creative date idea for your weekend, look no further than Luke Nicholson’s video for song number 10 on the Radio 2 Top 20. It’ll mean enlisting the help of all your friends to recreate long drives and a campside cuddle. If Nicholson’s video is to be believed, it’s all guaranteed to work.

Franz Ferdinand describe their latest album as their most positive to date (and you can stream it on CBC Music for one week). The band is happy, optimistic and having a whole lot of fun. Need proof? Check out this behind-the-scenes look of the making of their latest album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action.
