The Raveonettes‘ newest single, “She Owns The Streets,” was by far the most played and downloaded track on IRC in September, trailed by the second most popular song of the month, “Angels” by The xx. Other top singles of the month, in order, were the swaggering horn-laced romp ,”A Little Revolution,” by Firewater; the sassy duet, “Who,” from David Bryne and St. Vincent; the richly melodic “Old Friend” by Sea Wolf as well as the latest tracks, in order – top down from Stars, The Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, Band of Horses, and Django Django.
All tracks for the Top 10 Songs of the Month were first posted in the Best New Releases playlist mixes for the weeks of Sept. 4th and Sept. 11th (and Vol. II); Sept. 18th and Sept. 25th (click the links to view each week’s top singles from albums officially dropped that week) or a Fresh Tracks playlist. There are dozens and dozens of spectacular songs in the Fresh Tracks series, as well as the Best New Releases from September. While this playlist features the Top 10 Songs of September – determined how many times IRC listeners stream and download a song – in the works are the week-by-week Top 10 Songs playlists which contain so many prime singles from the last month of summer. It takes time to put them together because we have to go through all the web logs to find out which songs were streamed and downloaded the most.
