Triple J's Hottest 100 2012

This blog is now about Triple J's Hottest 100. An Australia day tradition and the world's biggest musical democracy or some such malarkey.


Stream it along here, I think. But I'll be counting them down here if you can't stream it or get to a radio.


I'm calling the winner now. Gotye and Kimbra's Somebody I Used to Know.

Because this is Australia and all news is reported in the form of gambling odds, you could actually place a bet for literally "Any other song" this year, the oucome is pretty much guaranteed.


But I'm really excited to find out who is number 2.

98 Some shitty rap song with Jay-Z in it.

Miranda Kerr dressed up as wonder woman for Australia day... I mean I don't really get it but good on her for having national pride?

SJ27

I liked that Strokes album a lot, they'd been off my radar for a while after First Impressions of Earth but they came back strong on this one.

jebbie introduced me to that goyrteetete song I liked it a lot

SJ27

Well I certainly have no complaints if Miranda Kerr wants to dress like that. The magazine cover says she's Australia's Wonder Woman, so there's that.

Megan Gale was actually cast as Wonder Woman in a Justice League movie that got aborted at the time of the Writer's Guild strike. Mirnada Kerr also just took over the catwalk and catalogue duties from Megan at David Jones department store.

93 was Kimbra who does guest vocals/implied toplessness on the goyrteetete song but I don't know the name of the song.

Didn't know James Blake had a song called the WilhelmScream. I wish it was just the actual scream auto tuned.

i only just remembered and tuned in. you're probably right about Gotye ftw, but since i don't especially like the song i won't be sad if you're wrong.

SJ27

I like that song but I'm kind of over it and I think there might be a bit of backlash for it but I think it should have enough of a lead to take it out.

It's weird some years like Muse Knights of Cydonia vs Silverchair's Straight Lines there was less than 100 votes in it then other years like when Franz Ferdinand won, they had more than twice the votes of the song that came second.

mumford and sons was a landslide winner too wasn't it? i remember one year there was a winner by only a couple of votes but i don't think that was it.

SJ27

Yeah I think Mumford and Sons was another landslide too, it probably hasn't been really close for a while. Was that the year they accidentally published the list on the website early?

mumford and sons was the one they accidentally revealed. i liked that gay pirate song a few tracks ago. hadn't heard that before.

My computer's getting slow trying to deal with this so I might start another page.

I hope The Jezabels make the top 10.

Good thing I knew those last two songs because the Twitter failwhale is up and I have no idea what this song is right now.
