Charley says SONG! Zippora – Lotus Eater

June 6, 2010

Well here’s something I wasn’t expecting to see.

Yesterday I spotted Zippora’s ‘Lotus Eater: Reloaded’ in the top 10 of the Belgian iTunes album chart. Which is a bit strange, since, well, it’s a single.

Granted, it has no less than thirteen (13!) remixes, but still, that doesn’t make it an album, does it?

It’s also confusing because I would have assumed that the album chart is harder to get into than the singles chart. ‘Lotus Eater: Reloaded’ has dropped a few places in the top 20 today, but that would still mean that it’s doing really well. This is very good news for Zippora, but also strange since her last single never even charted.

Or is it the other way round with iTunes charts and do more singles than albums get sold?

Argh, as I said, very confusing.

That being said, I hope Zippora gets that hit, because she’s a great dance singer who had some brilliant tunes in her time. I might even put up a Charley says ARTIST! profile on her sometime in the future.

In any case, of all fourteen tracks on the single only the Robert Abigail Remix seems to be online, so let’s just revisit the original ‘Lotus Eater‘ from back in early 2001 for now.
