The 2020 Countdown After Dark: Five things you might have missed late night on Monday
This year, XPN’s countdown is going full-on, unrelenting, 24/7 until we listen back to all 2,020 songs you voted for and reach number one. All of our specialty shows and features have been pre-empted. And quite a lot of music is happening in the overnights; on day five, we heard 76 songs between midnight and 6:00 a.m. If you’re not a night owl, here are five highlights you missed.
No. 639, 12:13 a.m., Aretha Franklin, “Think”
No. 629, 1:00 a.m., Van Morrison, “Madame George”
No. 626, 1:17 a.m., Gil-Scott Heron, “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”
No. 597, 3:21 a.m., Kate Bush, “Wuthering Heights”
