The singer sounds like he's actively trying not to be heard by anyone.

which is worse? Riptide or this

Angus and Julia Stone - Big Jet Plane [Official Music Video] - YouTube

^ still infuriates me that got to #1. I get why it did... but fuck me, the music could be played by fucking anyone, the vocals sound like a disinterested dying dog.

These two tracks make Sex on Fire look Like a Rolling Stone.

Riptide is definitely a poorer song than Big Jet Plane. The latter was just uninteresting, whilst Riptide walks into the offensive zone.

This just baffles me. I'm trying to think of anyone else getting such a massive deal on the back of a single song. The rest of his EP is a total bore too; "Riptide" is the standout, if you're willing to believe that.

I'll tell you what's actively offensive is that new Grouplove song. I'd vote for it as a joke, but then again, not really.

I don't think I've heard that one, or I probably have and was unable to pin the song to the name.

Unfortunately, his is a very, very popular sound. It's in a fucking million ads too.

I wouldn't go as melodramatically far as to say that Riptide is "offensive" - it's just a pop song. Harmless enough.

Better than Big Jet Plane I'd say.

Safe to say this'll be top twenty easily, possibly top ten.

It's not my favourite song on the album but it is a great song and I figure it's Disclosure's best shot at #1.

The least played National single is the best one: Sea of Love.

All the National songs they had on the list were awesome. I love just about every track on the album equally so it was a difficult choice. Nearly went with Demons just cos it's probably their track with the best chance.

Most annoying Australian (at least I guess it is) song of the year; Lurch & Chief (or whatever fucking spelling), 'We Are the Same'. The guy half of the duo makes Matt Bloody Corby seem like Maria Callas (whoever she is).
