Andalucía Fails to Chart

Unsurprisingly Andalucía didn’t trouble the UK singles chart despite the best efforts of teps. With no physical release and all promotion focused on the album I don’t think anything other was expected. Here’s what the iTunes UK singles chart (where something like 95% of all single/song sales now come from) looks like..

241. There Goes the Fear – Doves
256. Andalucía – Doves
339. Black and White Town – Doves
576. Pounding – Doves

Not quite as exciting as the Bruno Brooks chart countdown I used to enjoy back in the day. What may be even more surprising, is that Radio 1 didn’t see fit to put Andalucía on any of its playlists. It seems like Doves are no longer cool for school..

Edit: To be fair, I don’t listen to Radio 1, so maybe R1 audience has changed somewhat? 6 Music has played lots of Doves of late, of course that wont be the case if the big wigs at the BBC get their way..
