triple j Hottest 100 of 2012


It’s so easy to vote so I will always vote. And the culling process to ten votes is made easy by the fact that I vote for songs I’ve only heard played on triple j. Anything else feels like a throw-away vote.
I have tried to retain integrity. I have not voted for songs because they will do well, like Holdin’ On (yes I’ve voted for Flume, but not this particular possible number 1 song) and I have not voted for Frank Ocean’s ‘Lost’ which for some reason I feel will do well too. I have really simply voted for my favourite songs of the year, with the exception of a few, like Dems (who wouldn’t make the cut anyway).

This may be the first time I’m mentioning some of these artists on here; I don’t always blog about my favourite songs or albums because they are often covered by other blogs. It’s noisy enough without me throwing in my two cents with the thousands of dollars worth of two cents on the Hype Machine. This post being the exception ha!

With the Hottest 100 I’ve had this theory (the same logical theory I’m sure heaps of others have) that the songs that make up much of the Hottest 100 are on high rotation on triple j. The ever incredible website ‘j play’ has compiled a list of the top 100 high rotation songs in 2012 on triple j. It would be interesting to see if some sort of correlation could be made between the two lists.
My ten votes are below, they are not ranked.

The Presets – Promises

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Household Goods

Calvin Harris – Sweet Nothing (feat. Florence Welch)

Bat for Lashes – Laura

Disclosure – Latch

Chvrches – The Mother we Share

Feed Me & Crystal Fighters – Love is All I Got (Larse Remix)

Flume – On Top (feat. T-Shirt)

Rudimental – Not Giving In (feat. John Newman)

Flight Facilities – Clair De Lune (feat. Christine Hoberg)

    Pretty sure I’ll be voting for two of your choices too. 😛

      Haha cool. Are you posting your list? Let me know once you have voted. Has voting closed?

      I won’t be in Australia for Aussie day. Ironic.

        Nah, I think it closes on Sunday night… so I’ve got until then! And yeah, I’ll post my list somewhere… either on FB or the blog. I still need to do my top 10 albums too! Gah, so much writing, so little time.
