Can 'Any Other Song' challengeGotye in the Hottest 100countdown?

Voting for triple j’s Hottest 100 is officially open, and according to BetChoice.com Gotye’s ubiquitous single Somebody That I Used To Know is already leading the field with odds of 1.13 ahead of “Any Other Song“ at 5.50.

While it is difficult to imagine “Any Other Song” taking out the annual poll in January, The Jezabels, The Wombats and 360 are all strong contenders for top ten places, having received huge airplay on the j’s throughout 2011.

We also suspect that The Living End’s cover of The Wiggles’ 1994 classic Hot Potato will fill the “novelty song” spot in the top twenty, Owl Eyes’ ‘Like A Version’ of Pumped Up Kicks will sneak in via people’s unquenchable desire to vote for anything by Foster The People, there’ll be a few sweary tunes and that at least eight out of the ten shortlisted Boy And Bear songs will make the final cut.

Voting closes on Monday 16th January – so head on over to triple j and start clicking.

On the topic of overplayed songs, Shake It Off - Florence and The Machine is a good chance for Number 2, I'd say.

Braveheart81

I have seen both live and Gotye kills it with the Kimbra duet.

Personal opinion though, I get that.

I have a bunch of free stuff I have no use for like iTunes vouchers and Steam gifts. To boost numbers I'm willing to hold a lucky dip type thing for everyone who votes for Niggas in Paris and 7 Skies H3, if there are no laws/forum rules preventing me?

Voting for Rebecca Black.

No offence but some of you sound like buzzkills. I love Australia Day and listening to the hottest 100, there's some good songs, there's some bad songs but who really takes it that seriously. My favourite part is being drunk for the last ten songs and trying to guess what the next song will be.

Yeah, I'm a bogan :D

p.s. Nice list BH!

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 22nd Dec, 2011

The good thing about the Hottest 100 is that the best songs in the list are normally lower down.

By the time you get to the crappy songs near the top, you're so drunk it doesn't really matter.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 22nd Dec, 2011

This is my list!

Foo Fighters - White Limo
Frenzal Rhomb - When My Baby Smiles At Me I Go To Rehab

Arctic Monkeys - The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala
