The electronic pioneers’ biggest single of the year is The Perfect Kiss, a single originally released in 1985, pressed on a special edition 12″ vinyl to celebrate the Definitive Edition re-issue of its parent album, Low-Life.
They also score three further Top 10 placings: 1983 single Blue Monday, which celebrated its 40th anniversary this year (3), plus Sub-Culture (5) and Shell Shock (6), which are both also lifted from the Low Life reissue.
Scottish alt-rock band Frightened Rabbit earn three entries in the list, thanks to the 10th anniversary celebration of their major label debut Pedestrian Verse: The Woodpile (13), Late March Death March (14) and Backyard Skulls (15).
