If the Murlocs get fucking anywhere near the Hottest 100, I will ... say I'll do something drastic.

I haven't listened to The Rubens yet but you can be sure they'll be up there.

Pretty sure Thrift Shop has it wrapped up

Or possibly Matt Bloody Corby will get a run... although he's a little 2011 I guess.

I think that was top 5 last year.

This is a great thread by the way. Perhaps we can make it the official one.

We should definitely do that.

I plan to play... well I'd call it a drinking game if it wasn't basically just my daily routine... on Australia Day's 100 countdown. I will partake of a shot every time a song I don't like gets in the list.

May you rest in peace.

I'm actually going to miss it - I'll be at Rainbow Serpent festival that weekend.

Oh yeah... Thrift Shop. Talk about the most overplayed song of the last three months.

There is one bright spark at JJJ; Xan Rowe's random 'picks' on the morning show, including such gems as Peaking Lights 'Beautiful Son' and The Antlers' 'Endless Ladder'... none of these songs will be prominent in the hottest 100 list.

Also there is one (kinda-dad-rock but I rather like it) song that might get a good run: 'Easy Way Out' by NOT GOTYE, but a band called Money for Rope.

I love it just for the lyric

maybe when I'm old I'll take the easy way out
when I'm sick of watching SVU on a slow Friday night
we can take out our wheelchairs and get into fights
riding backwards down the eastern freeway
<something something inaudible>
you're scared of being alone
I might just come if you're planning on going
out of the day room and into the night

I'll be honest and say I have fuck-all idea what Thrift Shop is or who it's by.

Is there a clear favourite for #1? To me it doesn't feel like any song this year has had half the impact Somebody That I Used To Know did last year.

I need to sort out my vote ...

I don't listen to the Js enough to know to be honest. Thrift Shop sounds like a novelty song.

Kieran make sure you vote for SFK's Miracle Cure and/or Survival Expert.

What made you think I vote in this thing?

That said, if I did, I'd probably give Miracle Cure a guerney.
