Pretty underwhelming list if you ask me.

I'm stunned that Washed Out and Yuck didn't make it.

Though #99 is fucking priceless.

I think I've only heard 10 of those songs. Maximum.

I'm so out of the loop.

Inevitably 101-200 is better than 1-100. Hopefully they'll post that soon. 2009 it came up the day after but they waited until well into February to post the 2010 one.

Can't believe No Light No Light didn't crack the top 10. JJJ have been flogging that song since Florence released her second album.

I am stunned Washed Out didn't make it (and also Big Scary, wtf?!!) but Yuck didn't get much love here did they?

Bugger, looks like I just missed Santa Fe when I started listening. Surprised Niggas in Paris didn't get higher. Also like others said, thought Amor Fati would get in there, seemed like it was on rotation for a while in the middle of the year.

Skrillex and Example are fucking horrible and should be torn from the pages of history.

I'm happy that Gotye won, and obviously not surprised at all - it certainly is the best #1 in a few years.

I'd be struggling to know 75% of those songs. That said, about 4 or 5 of the songs I voted for got there! The absence of any Friendly Fires or War on Drugs is however, appalling.

Also, super impressed to see Calvin Harris and Benny Banassi rank highly, showing that the countdown is thankfully becoming more than just a bearded boho fest.

I didn't listen to it, but my girlfriend was at the Botanic Gardens in St Kilda where there must've been a huge listening party, and as I was walking there to meet up with her, you could hear from streets away, a massive Gotye singalong as the song was played at #1. Was pretty amazing thing to hear. It sounded like a chorus of thousands. Memorable.

I would like to condemn TripleJ on-air announcers for being unable to use 'is' and 'are' appropriately. Fucking illiterates.

I'd like to think that was because most of them were very, very drunk, but a deep part of me knows that it'd be the same story had they been sober.

I'd like to condemn Tom & Alex for being fucking idiots and The Doctor for being a self-loving asshole.
