Radiohead Hit Billboard Top 40, Get Remixed Some More
Now, there couldnt possibly be enough people remixing Nude to account for a Top 40 hit, right? But what if each stem counts as a download for the single? That would explain why Nude doesnt show up in iTMS chart its not the quantity of people buying the song, its that each person who does is buying it five times. Then tack on however many downloads of the full track itself, and youve got yourself a hit! In an update, Bradley notes that when hes talking about Radiohead showing up in iTunes Top Songs, hes referring specifically to the Top Radiohead Songs on the artist page. The fact that all the stems dominate here shows that there is a level of popularity for each, but not enough to push them into the Top 100 songs on iTunes overall. Gots it?
