Hottest 100

OK so I'm gonna use my blog for some public ruminations.. You see, one of the hardest things I've got to do at the start of every year is to decide what I'm going to vote for in Triple j's Hottest 100... There are sooo many awesome songs that it's hard to pick just 10... so, I'm gonna make my shortlist here, and narrow it down from this list.

Update - ok, so I've decided to keep 1 song each from Architecture, The Cat Empire and Sigur Ros. I really can't decide on one song by Emiliana, so I'm keeping both for now. I've put * against the songs I'm definately keeping, so that leaves 2 to pick from the remaining 9... I'll sleep on it..

Update 2 - A couple of big changes. I added Sarah Blasko's version of Flame Trees (from the Little Fish soundtrack). I can't believe I left it out of the shortlist!! Also added Shoot Frank by Cage. Removed The Go! Team's Lady Flash coz apparently that isn't from 2005. So after much rumination, I've decided to pick Clare, Missy and Sarah (of course). So my Hottest 100 votes turn out like:

  • Architecture In Helsinki - Do The Whirlwind
  • Architecture In Helsinki - The Cemetery
  • Architecture In Helsinki - Wishbone
  • Bernard Fanning - Wish You Well
  • Clare Bowditch - Divorcee By 23
  • Emiliana Torrini - Heartstopper
  • Emiliana Torrini - Sunny Road
  • Lady Sovereign- Random
  • Lior - Autumn Flow
  • Missy Higgins - The Special Two
  • Panics - Sleeps Like A Curse
  • Cage - Shoot Frank
  • Sarah Blasko - Flame Trees
  • Sigur Ros - Glosoli
  • Sigur Ros - Hoppipolla
  • Sufjan Stevens - Chicago
  • The Cat Empire - Miserere
  • The Cat Empire - Party Started
  • The Cat Empire - Sly
  • The Knife - Heartbeats
  • M.I.A - Bucky Done Gun
  • Herd - We Can't Hear You
  • Little Birdy Six Months In A Leaky Boat
