Such is the price to find great new music - you have to listen to songs to find new music and that means listening to many songs you might not love or identify with.

A lot of people don't like change hardware - you're probably just one of those kinds of people. Probably enough for you to enjoy your current collection without any change - maybe for the rest of your life. I personally find that pretty boring and think that 'discovering' new music is exciting.

Not until tomorrow. I just searched for songs on YouTube looked at songs with 2011 dates. I used this as a bit of a refresher too: http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/hottest100/11/yearinreview/

I listen to JJJ for a couple hours everyday and don't know any of the s*** you people are listing, except Gotye and Justice.

Though if you asked me what song I like, I would say it's the song where the black kid appears when the music is playing, so obviously they don't do a very good job of conveying who the artist and song name is on JJJ.

Sebastian - Embody

That's it. Don't even know if it's from this year. What a stupid name 'sebastian' how the f*** are you supposed to look that up or remember it.

I'd say a B105 kind of guy if hes struggling for just 12.

ps nats forgot about that s***hop hoods song, its the tits.

also thermite, I dont know if you're stupid or deaf or maybe just baiting, though they religiously either pronounce the artist of back announce the artist of every track and the name of it, of every song played, and if the presenter some how forgets, they always backtrack and tell everyone what it was.

I think you may have JJJ mixed up with nova, last time I listened to them (like, a week or two ago perhaps?) they said "this is the new one from Architecture in Helsinki and it was a shorted version of Contact High which had came out about 10 months ago.

And finally (trying to be less of a c***) you probably know a lot more of the songs than you think, you just don't remember the name of them, happens to me all the time.

Get defensive!
Whatever they're doing it doesn't work. They don't explain anything. Sometimes they might randomly say something but not explain what they are saying. For example, they always say "Like a version" but never explain what that means. Irritating. So I imagine they might randomly say "sebastian embody" but not explain it like "YOu just heard a song called Embody by the artist named Sebastian."
Except in reality they probably don't say anything and just hit the "friday f***wit" button over and over.

somebody i used to know for number 1, i reckon, has been too big and the songs that get heaps of commercial play (*cough* sex on fire *cough*) often do real well.


however, i will have to go away and think about my own top 10 or whatever, too many songs come out that i love and then other stuff comes out and i forget about them, will have to go back through my 2011 played stuff!

nah, i don't really like much commercial radio. I'm the kind of guy who mashes the steering wheel control buttons through every preset i can find until i stumble upon a decent enough song, rinse and repeat. Yes my tastes do stretch to yesteryear in some instances, but why would you limit yourself to just today's music when the back catalogue of everything ever is at your disposal?

I don't limit myself at all. I listen to old stuff - but mostly from my generation, I don't really get onboard with 60's music and stuff like that. Too time constrained to delve that deep.

I also mash the hell out of my radio. I agree that triplej does play a lot of s*** I don't want to hear but my radio still spends more time on triplej than any other station - and I wish I had a digital radio so I could also hear the Unearthed channel as well.

Interesting: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-01-25/academics-probe-triple-js-hottest-songs-countdown/3792114

Pity that reporters always have to play the 'dumb' card with statements like "your formula looks like something out of Good Will Hunting".

woop, can't wait. <3 aus day and the obligatory hottest 100 party.

my list had some minor changes when i actually put it in

'Gay Pirates' - Cosmo Jarvis.
'Blind Faith {Ft. Liam Bailey}' - Chase & Status.
'Need You Now' - Cut Copy.
'Helena Beat' - Foster The People.
'Houdini' - Foster The People.
'Otis {Ft. Otis Redding}' - Jay-Z & Kanye West.
'Endless Summer' - Jezabels, The.
'Civilization' - Justice.
'Even Though I'm A Woman' - Seeker Lover Keeper.
'Get Up {Ft. Hollywood Holt/Ruby Goe}' - Stanton Warriors.

Meh, money for jam - whacked $40 on. No way it can lose.


which songs does qgl reckon have a chance at beating it (if any)? i would have thought foster the peoople - pumped up kicks would be a decent bet but perhaps their voting will be split across so many songs they won't have the numbers to mount a challenge for number 1?

Surprising that someone who has studied the hottest 100 didn't realise 'pumped up kicks' was in last year’s countdown. He sure will be in shock when number 2 gets played. Owl Eye's cover will be in this year’s countdown though.

Haha, that will be a double whammy - Pumped up kicks will be wrong AND a cover will get up! :P

Haven't heard that cover before. Solid!

i read somewhere that it was released in 2010, then checked the wiki
and it contradicts itself

From July to September 2010, the group wrote new material that would appear on their debut album, and they chose Paul Epworth, Rich Costey, and Greg Kurstin to co-produce the record with Mark Foster.[9] In September, "Pumped Up Kicks" was released as the group's debut single.


Foster the People issued its first commercial release in January 2011, a self-titled EP featuring "Pumped Up Kicks", "Houdini", and "Helena Beat" that was intended to hold fans over until their first studio album, Torches, was completed.


and the wiki for pumped up kicks says :

Pumped Up Kicks" is a song by American indie pop band Foster the People. It was released as the group's debut single in September 2010, and was later included on their EP Foster the People and their debut album Torches.


so i went to their soundcloud page and it says :

Released by: StarTime Intl/Columbia Records
Release date: Jan 18, 2011


Guess JJJ are going off the e.p release date. im pretty sure it wasnt made available on itunes until 2011 as well.
So yeah, with that said, its in for a good shot at #2.

Contact High by Architecture in Helsinki should rate fairly high as well imo.

Somebody That I Used To Know ticks all the boxes when it comes to being a Hottest 100 frontrunner:

- A Triple J-approved artist whose past releases got plenty of airplay on the station,
- A crossover hit which went from being played on the J’s to being flogged all over commerical radio.
- Scored industry acclaim and numerous awards (ARIA gave it Single Of The Year, while Gotye and Kimbra won Best Male and Female artists respectively).
- Recieve a whole new audience of ‘mainstream’ fans – who pack out your shows just to hear your new hit single (Gotye sold out four shows at The Forum in October).
- Had numerous people covering it on YouTube or in their live shows – (just look at Canadian band Walk Off The Earth’s cover)

My fave part of BDO was when Girl Talk mixed Midnight City by M83 with Work It by Missy Elliot. F*****g genius.

My favourite part of today was when I supported myself over a recycling bin, tucked my penis between my legs and pissed backwards into the bin like a proper lady.

Bonus points - not my bin.
