Maklemore & Ryan Lewis produce the first rap song to go #1 in Triple J's Hottest 100
Thrift Shop coming in at the top has caused a stir with a lot of people unhappy with it's top placing & Of Monsters & Men coming in at #2, a little to mainstream for the usual alternative Triple J listeners.
But someone must have voted for them & they are both quality songs.
My top pick alt-J came in at #3, the British newcomers scored 3 songs in the top 100 & will draw a big crowd at next weeks St Jerome's Laneway Festival. Can't wait.
The People's Champ Flume gave us 4 songs, his highest at #4. It's been a massive 12 months for Harley, his album was one of my favourites of the year. Another one to catch at Laneway.
Tame Impala capped off a great year with 2 songs in the top 10... number 7 & 9. Pretty amazing & Im proud they are Australian. I saw them live at The Tivoli a few weeks ago & they are the country's best rock band at the moment.
All in all you can't be unhappy with the countdown, you voted for it people! Well done Triple J on another awesome broadcast.
Out of my 10 votes 6 of them polled. With Father John Misty, Cat Power, Millions & Deep Sea Arcade missing out.
Most of my songs were in the 40-20 range which says something about my taste in music... it's a little alternate but still popular.
#40- R U Mine?- Arctic Monkeys
#39- Hold On - Alabama Shakes
#36- Paddling out- Miike Snow
#33- Can't get better then this- Parachute Youth
#24- I'm into you- Chet Faker
#3- Breezeblocks- Alt J
