The whole hottest 100 could easily just be remixes, like a versions, and I dunno, is it a banger.

Uptown Funk? Ah! So it's okay if Mark Ronson is involved. #FoxFM100

The Social 100 hasn't done too badly, though for specific positions I don't think it's done as well as the Warmest 100 over the past couple of years despite a larger sample size. At any rate, it's clear the top four will be some mix of the following:

 
Peking Duk - High
Chet Faker - Talk Is Cheap
Milky Chance - Stolen Dance
Hilltop Hoods - Cosby Sweater

SNOOZE

Oh my god could Chet Faker's music be any more fucking boring?

Good grief Australia.

Also Kieran I can tell you wrote the top ten yourself.

Chet Faker is really that popular over there?

He's ok. Better than Vance Joy, that's for damn sure. And at least it wasn't Taylor.

I got bored skimming the list after about 35 or so. Yellow Flicker Beat, Seasons and West Coast were the only songs I really liked.

That's just it, he's just okay. But of course this being JJJ it's highly overrated.

Frankly - and I can't believe I'm writing this, given how bileous I was about more of his songs making this year's countdown - I'll take "Riptide" over anything Chet Faker's done. At least Vance Joy has written a mildly memorable or hummable melody. Chet Faker's music is bereft of any interest. No memorable qualities, no danceability, you can't even chill to it because it's so fucking boring it's cured the insomnia you didn't know you had. One of his songs earlier in the top ten was passable (I think it was "Gold"), but the one that got #1 was awful, awful, awful. I don't get why he's the hero of J-bros everywhere.

Huh, I found his album to be pleasant background music but never bothered returning to it. Again, why is he so popular?

Vance Joy makes my day worse every time I hear his stupid voice and meaningless lyrics.

I think the secret of Chet Faker is that he's a sort of 2014 J-bro's idea of 'real soulful'. Unfortunately he forgot to bring the tunes, or really anything much. But his music is laid back and somnolent and I guess this is supposed to convey something about the essence of the country.

Probably a lot of Triple J listeners are hyper stressed out (who wouldn't be, christ if I was 20 right now, I'd seriously consider survivalism in the hills) and mostly use music as a sort of sedative, regardless of quality or artistic vision. That would be my take.

Wake in fright.
