The NME Chart Top 40 Revealed - 2nd November 2009

By Tim Chester

Posted on 30 Oct 09

 
 

Imagine a Westlife-free world, a national Cheryl-free chart, with Chipmunk chipped off, The XX marking the spot where JLS used to be, and Gaga and Miley burnt in a bonfire of pop pap lit by Jordin Sparks - a ringtone, X-Factor empty countdown of, y'know, good tunes?

That just happened. Today marks the first NME Chart as we reclaim the top forty and countdown the biggest selling tracks in the NME world. Every Monday from 10am, NME Radio will be counting down the Top 30 while at midday on Mondays NME.COM will announce the Top 40 right here. Then to watch the videos all you need to do is turn the goggle box to Sky Channel 382 to see NME TV reveal the Top Ten every Tuesday and Wednesday at 9am and 6pm and the Top 40 every Saturday at 4 and Sunday at 8.

This week sees The Temper Trap consolidate on their festival success and an excellent NME Radio session by climbing to the upper echelons. It's a good week for Florence and The Big Pink too and it's great to see Miike Snow with two different entries in the top forty. Comment your thoughts below and come back next week to see who's climbing and who's dropping...
