Rub of Rub enters at #1

The Indonesian band Rub of Rub is the surprise of the month. They top our rankings with their song “Lepas”, and once you’ve heard the song you’ll know why. This catchy dub track is built around a groovy bassline and just two basic chords, but don’t be fooled, it’s the perfect example of less is more. The song sounds fresh and exciting every step of the way. Just jam along and see for yourself.

Kate Bush is crushing her hill sprint

Since Stranger Things season 4 launched on Netflix, Kate Bush has been sprinting up that hill called the Chordify top songs. It is, after all, the track that keeps Max out of the hands of the upside down overlord. No, don’t worry, we won’t give away more spoilers. We’re just saying there’s a good reason our community has been playing this song as if their life depended on it.

What’s up with Adele?

So what’s up with Adele? Our Chordify community has jammed to not one, but two songs of the English singer-songwriter. Did we miss anything, or are we collectively sad that the summer is almost over? Whatever’s going on, we’re happy “Easy” and “Hello” are going strong, because these are evergreens that definitely deserve a place in your setlist.
