Hottest 100 time again, already? It feels like just a few months since last year's hottest 100. A quick perusal of the list of songs confirms what I had already suspected, I haven't listened to much triple j this year. I don't recognise a lot of the songs on this years list, and there's more still whose names seem familiar, yet the music itself remains elusive. Nonetheless, I hacked together a top top-ten list of the songs I did know, and it goes something, like this:Dead Letter Circus
- The Space on the Wall
Dead Letter Circus, nuff said
- Simple Boy
I had a hard time picking a song from Karnivool's new album, Sound Awake. The whole album seems to blend together for me, making it hard to pick out a single song. This was the first to came to mind, so I put that one down.Silversun Pickups
- Catch and ReleaseSilversun Pickups
- It's Nice To Know You Work Alone
* I couldn't narrow it down to one song I liked more than the others, so I picked two, It's a pretty solid album so I guess that makes it ok.Yeah Yeah Yeahs
- Heads Will Roll
It's a sing-a-long dance-a-long tap-your-foot-a-long-if-you're-not-so-singing-and-dancing-inclined kind of song with catchy lyrics and good beat. I pity the fool who doesn't enjoy it.Little Birdy
Woop! ... damn, too early again.
also, my spell checker tells me birdy is not a real word, we'll see about that.Seth Sentry
- The Waitress Song
My novelty song pick of the year. If you like this song also check out Strange Lot
(It's on unearthed atm), better than Simple Game
in my opinion.Metric
- Satellite MindMetric
- Gimme Sympathy
I voted for Help I'm Alive
last year, so I left it out this year. Still, Satellite Mind is brilliant, easily in my top three songs for the year, and Gimme Sympathy, my next favourite from the album. I'll never get enough Metric.The Prodigy
It won't go away, It's an omen! It's really good to see The Prodigy back in top form after so long.
All those songs I haven't heard should make far an interesting countdown this year at least.
