Wud Records: 20 Most Played Tracks of 2019

20 Most Played Tracks of 2019

We thought it might be fun to make two playlists of the 20 most played tracks of 2019 on both SoundCloud and Bandcamp. We felt that such playlists would enable fans of our bands to see what has been hot and to have the opportunity to enjoy listening to some of our most popular tracks of recent times.

Making a SoundCloud playlist of the tracks that were popular there is easily done. To listen to the 20 most played tracks of 2019 playlist at the SoundCloud website, simply click here to open that page in a new tab.

Medicines by Dark Company was again the most played track on SoundCloud in 2019. It has been a perennially massive track for us at Wud Records since it broke the European radio airwaves back in the early 90s. Dark Company had two other songs in the top twenty for 2019 – Killer from Signmaker and the work-in-progress Beasts & Angels from Mind Dance.

Of the remaining places, five were taken by The Bastard Sons of Dennis. Flicker claimed eight of the top twenty positions. There was also space for Alchemeon, Wud, The Ug Brothers and Rough Terrain to claim one spot each.

Bandcamp has again seen a slight decline compared to last year in terms of sales and activity, although overall the results there have been fairly pleasing when considering everything else that has been going on in the Wud world. Flicker registered the most sales with their 2002 album At Least 1000 Words. The most played track was their ever popular melodic progrock instrumental earworm Moonpath.

The 2019 chart was dominated by Flicker, with seven of the tracks, and Dark Company with nine. Also appearing this year we also see Pok the Bard with three tracks and just one from Alien Heat. None of our other artists were represented in the 2019 Bandcamp Top Twenty.

Over at Bandcamp it is not so easy to make a simple playlist of our popular tracks. Instead, what we have done is created some sort of playlist here within this very news post for your listening pleasure. Simply clicking on the links below will allow you to play the various tracks.
